I feel a need to lighten up the mood.... ;)

@  -LittleAutob... : (30 May 2020 - 10:38 AM)

:p

@  Maximus Ambus : (30 May 2020 - 02:14 AM)

Shockwave did it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (30 May 2020 - 12:21 AM)

I'm not in the US and at least some of the episodes seem to work for me. I don't know the actual list of places it's available, though.

@  Shockwave 75 : (29 May 2020 - 10:37 PM)

Unfortunately It seems Cyberverse is only available in the US on YouTube.

@  -LittleAutob... : (29 May 2020 - 09:19 AM)

Yes, and its ongoing.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (29 May 2020 - 01:05 AM)

Cyberverse is already officially uploaded to YouTube.

@  fourteenwings : (29 May 2020 - 12:36 AM)

Spin Master is abridging current episodes of Bakugan Armored Alliance and posting the result on YouTube. Maybe Hasbro does that someday too.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 May 2020 - 10:59 PM)

I see... :/

@  wonko the sane? : (28 May 2020 - 08:14 PM)

Within the US anyway. Those channels aren't easy or cheap to access in other countries, and their website often region lock content. Tubi is the only good thing on that list: largely identical (but not perfectly so. Damnit. I wanna watch COPS.) country to country and free.

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2020 - 07:24 PM)

So yeah, Hasbro is using plenty of venues to spread exposure of their brands

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Starz currently licenses Transformers G1 and the GI Joe movie (as well as MLP specials). Netflix has more current series available.

@  Nevermore : (28 May 2020 - 07:21 PM)

Study shows: Holders of the title "world's oldest person" have a severely increased risk of dying.

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2020 - 07:18 PM)

Tubi TV and Youtube both host various Hasbro cartoons. Both are freely accessed and ad supported. Any basic TV package (barring straight antenna) includes channels like USA Network, SyFy and FX, all of which regularly air the films from Transformers and GI Joe.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 May 2020 - 06:18 PM)

I dunno what to tell you, media might be changing slowly, but at least it's still accessible. Even the folks that DON'T get one of the streaming services can watch it on the company website. It's a vehicle for the toy line after all, they need to make an effort to make it as consumable as possible.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 May 2020 - 05:41 PM)

Well. Thats said, then.... I guess... :doh

@  wonko the sane? : (28 May 2020 - 04:13 PM)

As long as the the cartoons are profitable, then they'll make more. The media it's shown on is completely irrelevant. I say that as a guy whose earliest surviving memory is a big red truck turning into a big red robot.

@  ZakuConvoy : (28 May 2020 - 03:06 PM)

Might be the end of an era. With the rise of streaming, who knows if Transformers will ever be on broadcast TV again.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 May 2020 - 11:46 AM)

3 seasons on a show is usually enough... but yeah ;-;

@  Roddie Luver : (27 May 2020 - 09:37 PM)

I’m also sad Cyberverse has no season four.

@  Paladin : (26 May 2020 - 08:10 PM)

it's too hugging hot today.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

I'll agree with you on that.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

I fugured

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 May 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I'm actually sad Cyberverse won't get another season. 2 and 3 (of what I've seen) have REALLY nailed it in being fun little actions shows, like the Sunbow series.

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2020 - 01:00 PM)

Yes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 May 2020 - 12:52 PM)

I'm waiting for Animated season 4. Am I insane?

@  wonko the sane? : (25 May 2020 - 11:22 AM)

I'm waiting for the next season to show up on netflix.

@  Sabrblade : (25 May 2020 - 10:59 AM)

Many of us have already watched the rest of the Cyberverse episodes since the whole third season aired in the UK last September.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 10:18 AM)

*9th

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 10:17 AM)

I just saw the 8th episode... omg

@  Bass X0 : (25 May 2020 - 01:28 AM)

Already seen it online.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 09:42 PM)

Who's excited for tomorrow? The only thing that makes Monday worth it is the Cyberverse episodes .-.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 May 2020 - 12:30 PM)

Welcome. I just came into that trick myself recently, so happy to share.

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 12:05 PM)

Thanks, wonko the sane? for the tip with the cloning. That helped a lot!

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 12:02 PM)

Heheh.... yes... I don't think a sniper would be very good at making a vaccine... 0.0

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 11:48 AM)

All right! Cloning my old HHD to an SSD and then swapping out the drive was successful, it would appear. Finally.

@  Bass X0 : (24 May 2020 - 11:30 AM)

Scientist Perceptor is. Sniper Perceptor less so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 10:51 AM)

Perceptor would be more responsible.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 10:48 AM)

Oof x~x

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 10:45 AM)

He'd cure the virus, but he'd probably commit at least two crimes against nature and weaponize a third in the process.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 09:39 AM)

'Horrible consequences' would most likely happen with Brainstorm...

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 08:16 AM)

Totally. And Percy's not even human. XD

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 06:50 AM)

Can't do much worse than our current government, I say go for it.

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 10:13 PM)

Little do we realize that the Perceptor in question is the Mini-Con combiner. :p

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

He would!!!

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

Horrible consequences? I... Doubt that would happen.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:55 PM)

Even if he would come up with the answer by tomorrow.

Yeah, I tried to go back and play... one of them, I can't remember which, but it was clunky as hell.  Might have been OK back in the day, but today it's a frustrating nonsensical mess.
 
Oblivion is weird.  It's a halfway step between Morrowind and Skyrim and feels like the awkward, unloved stepchild in retrospect.  At the time, I loved it, though XD

Patrick Stewart. All other arguments are invalid.

But seriously, it would be nice if at some point they could program these games to learn the difference between accidental friendly fire in the midst of battle and actual murder.

Skyrim still doesn't do it. The best effort I've seen is fallout 4 where the characters just ignore the fact that I shot them cause they crossed my line of fire.

Yeah, the worst feeling during battle is when you suddenly see the number of red dots on the compass suddenly multiply significantly and then everyone is attacking you.

 

That's usually a call for me to just reset to the last save.  Thankfully it's a Bethesda game so I'm pretty much saving at every turn anyway.

I love when I'm in a town and a dragon swoops in and I start swinging at it and a STUPID GUARD decides to walk right in front of me, so I'm suddenly fighting a dragon and 50 FRIGGIN' GUARDS. 

 

Yeah.

So...the original games. Were they PC only? And what were they like? Anyone play Elder Scrolls 1 or 2?

 

Arena and Daggerfall are tough as nails.

 

I never managed to get out of the original dungeon in Arena. Why? Because the original combat system involved you clicking and holding down the mouse button while moving the mouse in the direction you want to attack.

 

Daggerfall is...ambitious.

 

This is Daggerfall's overworld map:

Each of those little segments can be selected and zoomed into, resulting in a close up map like this:

 

Dz2PAgX.gif

 

Each of those dots represent towns, ruins, dungeons, villages, and hamlets. Said towns tend to look like this:

Oh, and quests are timed. You can literally fail the main quest by not showing up to a specific inn in a specific town in a specific county on a specific day at a specific time.

I think the trade off was that a lot of it was cut-and-paste duplicated and there were a lot of dungeons which were just procedurally generated which didn't always work out well.

Yeah, if you have a quest that will take you into a Dungeon...expect to be there for a few days. Real time, not game time. Game time, you'll likely be there for a in-game month or two. And they are procedurally generated - the game's instruction manual even remarks that you should have graph paper handy to create your own map and prevent yourself from getting lost (WHICH CAN HAPPEN).

 

Here, this is a 3D map of the game's initial dungeon (The only one not procedurally generated) as created by a mod that 3D maps the dungeons for those who don't want to bother with graph paper:

 

G8YmSVE.png

 

That's the starting dungeon.

 

But yes, the trade off for this huge game world is the area between towns/ruins/etc is a barren wasteland and the actual in-game world looks like this:

Wait...I just got arrested for *checks menu* murder? What? I didn't murder anyone. What the? I mean, unless I was in battle and there was friendly fire...I didn't murder anyone. *sighs*


Well, I guess the good side of this is I didn't even have to do the arena thing to get that willing victim in order to serve as my initiation into the dark brotherhood. Of course, I'm not quite ready to join them yet. I'm doing the mages and fighters guilds right now and don't want my infamy to get too high until I'm done with them. But at least I got the invitation without much of a fuss.

But the way the guy talked like I was some soul-less remorseless murdering fiend...IT WAS FRIENDLY FIRE! I still don't even remember where it happened unless it was someone I was fighting beside in the siege of Bruma!

My first Oblivion invitation was in the arena. I forget the name, but it was some orc (damn you autocorrect, learn the word 'orc') that if you do a certain quest, he loses the will to live and just stands there and lets you kill him. Since it was an arena fight, it didn't count as murder and your infamy doesn't raise. But the Dark Brotherhood knows what you did.

One more recommendation quest and I'll finally be able to do the actual Mage Guild quests. These Guild quests are taking far more time in Oblivion than they did in Skyrim. Not sure if that's good or bad. But I really just want to get through the Mage and Fighters guilds so I can do theives Guild and Dark Brotherhood without worrying about my infamy.

Oh, and I have decided that I do not like the leveling system and I totally miss lycanthropy. Still having fun though, don't get me wrong. Oblivion is a great game. Just kinda missing Skyrim at the moment.

I did get the soundtrack off iTunes. <3

Meh, I just said to heck with the fighters guild and started up with Dark Brotherhood and the thieves guild. This run through, I really don't have any driving urge to finish the game or even go that far. This whole thing was to simply play a game I haven't played in a long time. The moment it starts getting boring, I'm back on Skyrim.

I killed that prisoner that was locked up across from me at the beginning. Last playthrough I couldn't make it past the guards without being discovered. This time I had a bunch of Skyrim sneaking experience helping me out.

Oh dear! Between Final Fantasy XV, Zelda and the upcoming Mass Effect, I honestly forgot about my Oblivion run. Whelp, I guess that means I'm done with it. Never even got to the Dark Brotherhood Whodunnit quest either. But if I get back around to Elder Scrolls after my current lineup of games to play, I'll probably go back to my Skyrim werewolf. Oblivion is fun. Anyone who likes Skyrim should probably see if they can find Oblivion cheap. But I miss my werewolf khajiit and her family.

So ESO managed to flip my Lore Rage switch.

 

Their newest expansion is taking place on Vvardenfell. No biggie. Except here's the thing - ESO takes place in the Second Era, during the Interregnum the 500 year period of chaos between the collapse of the Second Empire and the Founding of the Third Empire.

 

ESO is revealing the island of Vvardenfell, and their first video is a familiar setting - Seyda Neen. The Imperial Port that you started the Morrowind game on.

 

A port that, by all reasonable expectations, should not exist yet. Here's the thing - it's literally 900 years between the events of ESO and the events of Morrowind. That's a long time for a town to exist, but not impossible. That's a INCREDIBLY LONG TIME for a town to have experienced absolutely no growth what-so-ever. The same number of buildings in the exact same layout.

 

I get ESO is banking on nostalgia, but believe it or not this 900 year doppleganger actually really ticks me off.
