Surprised we didn't get a full size retool from the monsterbot mold. I'd rather have a CW Ironhide retool though, we need a van Wilder.

@  tigerhawk : (07 May 2021 - 04:19 PM)

I just noticed Wilder was the only omission from Takara Legends.

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 06:01 AM)

Even more weirdly, it was the early shift where some people had their regular day off for the week, while the late shift was supposed to have full attendance (not counting sick days, vacations and overtime reduction).

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 01:15 AM)

The weirdest part was that there was a steady influx of voters during the early shift, while hardly anyone showed up during the late shift.

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 01:14 AM)

Wow, that was a long day. But it's over, and I finally got some sleep. Not particularly happy with the outcome, but then again, my candidates both admit they didn't really campaign that much.

@  Echowarrior : (06 May 2021 - 08:56 PM)

Best of luck, Nevermore.

@  wonko the sane? : (06 May 2021 - 10:18 AM)

@  Nevermore : (05 May 2021 - 03:14 PM)

The election committee whose chairman I am has been preparing this election since February. There's no real gain for me either way, so I don't care that much for the outcome, but it's going to be a stressful day for me either way.

@  Nevermore : (05 May 2021 - 03:13 PM)

Wish me luck. Tomorrow is this year's supervisory board election at my workplace, and I'm the guy in charge of organizing the election.

My TR Perceptor fell and the titan master peg in the leg snapped off. Fortunately I have the Legends one.

@  wonko the sane? : (02 May 2021 - 08:50 PM)

It's a fairly well known fact that "it's a wonderful life" only became popular after it dropped into the public domain. So, yeah, they probably did.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (02 May 2021 - 08:29 PM)

I read an interesting observation on Twitter. If it is the natural course of a human to grow into Grandpa Abe yelling at a cloud, but nostalgia also yields rose-tinted glasses for the likes of one's youth, then did Greatest Generation adults bemoan how Baby Boomer children loved box office flops such as The Wizard of Oz and It's a Wonderful Life?

You’re traveling down a rabbit hole I dare not follow

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:26 AM)

At the same time, with my almost non-existent knowledge of Japanese and how oddly some things translate, seeing "Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges" made me wonder if that would make it "JoJoJo"... which now has my brain terrified of a weird Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo/Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Crossover. @[email protected]

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:24 AM)

It is always weird when things align.  This talk of Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges in the SquawkBox reminded me of King Gorgeous Gorge on the FoxBox.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 May 2021 - 08:52 PM)

Nice

@  Nevermore : (01 May 2021 - 09:03 AM)

I got one even better: After that character by the name of Gorgeous Giorgios dies in a gorge, they name that whole area after him: The Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges.

@  tigerhawk : (30 April 2021 - 01:56 AM)

Paint apps did slide notably during TR, wave one's Titan Masters had detail but wave 2 onwards was absent of them. Wave 5's Ramhorn, Dreadnaut, Scorchfire and Aimless had detail but Murk and Hazard didn't, can't speak for Flameout as I got Legends Twintwist and Slugslinger.

Anyone here got any g1 jet fire parts for sale?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 April 2021 - 04:12 PM)

Other than a few overly tight joints, the paints apps are my single complaint about the generations line.

@  tigerhawk : (29 April 2021 - 02:25 PM)

I just saw Legends Leo Prime now I wish Titans Return Alpha Trion had a few more paint apps for ship mode.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (27 April 2021 - 04:59 PM)

CORVUS: considering that reply, I'm pretty sure this was just another instance of Bass posting poorly-defined drivel as if it were profound.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 April 2021 - 04:24 PM)

Given the last year and a half or so, is it any surprise?

I'd like to know what society he's talking about, and what qualifies as "nothing", TBH.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 April 2021 - 05:09 PM)

I don't see the point in such a poorly defined "everyone is terrible" statement. He's not complaining about any specific people or specific problems.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 April 2021 - 05:06 PM)

I do not see anything about Bass's comment that felt a need for you to attack him.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 April 2021 - 04:35 PM)

Bass: does that "everyone" include yourself or are you just trying to act like you're better than everybody without actually proving anything?

@  wonko the sane? : (26 April 2021 - 04:10 PM)

Mostly it's "oh, don't say that right now" and "better learn when to duck".

@  Bass X0 : (26 April 2021 - 04:05 PM)

There's something to be said about society when everyones just an inch away from snapping over nothing.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 April 2021 - 02:17 PM)

WalMart is a cruel mistress. Today she runneth over...tommorrow, she'll be barren as a desert.

Glenn Morshower would agree. He goes to auditions with his shoes full of syrup.

Yowzers! Lots of gifts today! I ended up with enough free quartz to do 4 10x summons, and decided to try the Extra category in the paid quartz summons. I got:

BANANA ONI and two copies of Nitocris to feed to my original
Jeanne (ruler), three x Salieri, and Gorgon

I think I'm satisfied. I finally got my oni, and my first ruler and avengers.

Those are some really good pulls. :thumbsup

 

I'm never going to spend another cent on this game, so I just tried three 10-rolls on the Skadi banner using the retroactive login Quartz we just got (saving the rest for another attempt at Lancer Raikou). Zip. I did end up finally getting Angry Mango off the FP gacha, though. :wtf

 

Maybe I really should just stick to single-pulls, since that seems to be where all my luck goes. I did a YOLO roll on the Story gacha several days ago, and Nyatalanta suddenly showed up. :wtf

I hit the Extra GSSR and got my first "double SSR" roll (easier when one is guaranteed, I guess.) Both Holmes and Jalter are now NP2.

Also managed to snag Skadi with the bonus summon tickets in the Mana Prism shop, so that was nice.

I was able to get Skadi with 180 sq, only got another Martha for a gold servant, 1 of the 4star CE, and a couple 3star CEs.

 

She is one of the best supports making quick great again (it was fantastic before multiple health bars appeared).

 

I did the Extra for the guaranteed gatcha, got 4 Salieris and Hokusai, who was one I wanted, so NP2 of her now is great for farming and some CQs.

In this Servant's own (appropriate) words (that I only now realized she was actually shouting out, now that I can read the 'subtitles' on her voice lines page): HALLELUJAH!

 

FGOScreenshot025.jpg

 

Once again, from a single YOLO roll where past 10-rolls failed. :wtf Oh well, at least I have her now! I'm wondering if I should still try for NP2 once she shows up on the banner again, though. :p

 

Now to work up the drive to actually finish the Solomon part and get to the Lostbelts so I don't miss Santa Quetz... :doh

I only got Banana Oni from the first banner, but got all three from the second. Even got a 2nd BB on a ticket a few days later.

The current JP summer... After getting Castoria (and ran out of mats and QP for her abilities) during the anniversary, I was able to get all 6 summer servants. Eventually.

And after crazy luckily getting NP5 Berserker Musashi, the 3 turn NP look with double Castorias is fantastic.

Still need QP and xp to level my other new ones, though. Abby is still waiting for pancakes...

I got BTFO by this summer banners this year. Probably the tradeoff for having such good luck on the first day of the anniversary. Sigh. Gotta rebuild my stash from scratch, thankfully there's not much I want in the next month or so...

JP server is having another Grail Front event, this time Rome-themed. Couple of Rome-adjacent Servants got animation updates:

 

 

 

And they got strengthening quests as well. Caligula's NP now does defense down, and Boudica's guts skill is now targetable, with an increase to max HP, and the cooldown was reduced by a turn.

I have been slaking with talking in this topic.  Still addicted, just lazy on posting.

 

I was unable to get Miyu on the US rerun of Prisma Illya...  but got Illya to NP3...  Limited 4 star servants are just so much more rare than 5 star ones.  Honestly, have not used her on the JP game much, so it isn't the BIGGEST deal, but I wanted to have the Magical Girl set.

 

Time for more farming for Valentines while watching a crazy anime Vtuber build her tower of babel in Minecraft...

Akai Haato.  (Her Haachama personality seems to be sleeping at the moment).

 

If someone told me 6 months ago i would watch anyone livestream games, never mind ones with anime avatars, I would have laughed myself to death.  Now I am in the Hololive rabbit hole.  On the plus side, I also use the time to farm extensively in FGO.  At the expense of console game and anime watching time...

So do you have to go through several existential crises and morally questionable choices before you can claim your order? :wtf

 

That aside: I suppose I'm on a burnout-related mostly-break from the game at the moment, as I've now missed four five welfares (BB, Mecha-Liz MkII, Santas Altera and Quetz, and Ryoma). I'm just logging in for the bonuses and the occasional quick grind at the moment, and have had basically no desire to continue the story. :(
