Ever notice Kath SOucie's Janine in the later episodes of Real Ghostbusters sounds like Tara Strong's Sari Sumdac?

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 September 2020 - 02:10 PM)

I wish they were more universal like Beast Wars, Animated or Prime and as professionally done,

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 September 2020 - 02:06 PM)

The Netflix shows are done for adults, the Generation toyline is for adults who grew up with G1.

@  Sabrblade : (28 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

Who said it ever was?

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 September 2020 - 12:43 PM)

Whatever happened to WFC Earthrise being a kids show X'D

@  wonko the sane? : (28 September 2020 - 11:43 AM)

Cool, my last tablet couldn't run it, and I stopped caring by the time I got the new one. So thanks!

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:27 AM)

There are crossover characters, but the amount and distribution... Marvel Vs Capcom this ain't.  If @wonko the sane? my bad!

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:21 AM)

I've been playing for *checks account* 1002 days, 23 hours.  So, by 2021, it will have been three years.  I think it takes place in its own continuity, largely inspired by G1 but borrowing from other places.

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

@wonko the sane? Can only speak for Earth Wars, but so few they're easy to forget.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 September 2020 - 07:39 AM)

Didn't they already do the across universes thing in that tablet game?

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:30 AM)

Also, make the setting an amalgamation of different Transformers series, rather than based on a specific one. Bring in things like 'Sentinel Major' as the primo Autobot jerk, and sleek car mode Vehicons as the Decepticons' basic grunt.

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:27 AM)

KT just needs to incorporate the vehicle modes into the combat system, like Platinum did for Devastation, so they're for more than just wheeling it across the battlefield. =P

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:25 AM)

Transformers: Warriors of Cybertron! =D

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (28 September 2020 - 05:15 AM)

I want a Power Rangers Mosu. I would also take a Transformers Mosu. :D

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 September 2020 - 04:50 AM)

It even ended on a sequel hook.

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 04:40 AM)

Man, I just want another Devastation game... =(

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 September 2020 - 01:53 AM)

Aren't TFs way more varied than Joes, as far as they'd work in gameplay? Like, Omega Supreme is vastly different from Bumblebee.

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 10:16 PM)

Hell, ripoff Super Robot Wars withTFs

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 10:16 PM)

IDK they could make something like FF tactics or Fire Emblem ripoff with Robots and i'd buy it

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 September 2020 - 09:43 PM)

See, I feel GI Joe (with it's varied cast) is a better fit for a strategy game, where as Transformers feels more suited for a shooter.

@  Maruten : (27 September 2020 - 08:28 PM)

I might give them points for making a strategy game if it's actually a good strategy game.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 07:48 PM)

I mean, points for making a strategy game instead of third person shooter, but: urrrrgggg. Cyberverse.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 07:47 PM)

A transformers game for the switch? *checks* Urrrggg... cyberverse...

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 September 2020 - 06:28 PM)

October will be a big month for Hasbro fans: Zoids, GI Joe AND Transformers all have brand new console games. All on the Switch at that!

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 09:04 AM)

At least in animated he was more driven than just "loyal bootlick".

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 08:29 AM)

Oof, That's a huge downgrade

@  Maximus Ambus : (27 September 2020 - 02:35 AM)

After rewatching Animated Sound and Fury, in my head canon Titans Return Soundwave is that Soundwave.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:09 PM)

On an unrelated note: I just got the BBTS email about kingdom pre-orders... and even the stuff I don't want I'm perfectly willing to get if it means I can have the rest of it.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:08 PM)

It's digimon. So first one, then the other.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

50/50 odds, it's either a helicopter with limbs, or a scantily-clad human with heli blades on their back. If female, 90% odds on the second one.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2020 - 12:39 PM)

I read that as "Helicoptermon" and wondered what kind of Digimon that was.

@  Bass X0 : (26 September 2020 - 12:35 PM)

Helicopter-mom, transform!

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 September 2020 - 11:58 PM)

Aw I scratched the hood of my 35th anniversary Bluestreak. Fortunately he's in robot mode a lot.

@  Sabrblade : (25 September 2020 - 07:24 PM)

No decoration could improve the wall more than Knockout himself

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 September 2020 - 05:04 PM)

The wall could use some decorating, though. Maybe a nice shelf or a portrait.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 September 2020 - 04:32 PM)

I'm laughing so hard XDDD

@  ▲ndrusi : (25 September 2020 - 02:31 PM)

He doesn't even mind this time. You know what? It's comfortable here.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 September 2020 - 02:23 PM)

AND THEN KNOCKOUT WAS IN THE WALL AGAIN XDDD

@  Bass X0 : (25 September 2020 - 01:11 PM)

is an annoying stage in Super Mario World.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 September 2020 - 02:15 PM)

Gnarly.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 September 2020 - 01:05 PM)

Beast Era, a blonde rat called Sunsqueaker.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 September 2020 - 01:00 PM)

And then Knockout was in the wall again.

@  Sabrblade : (24 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

Knockout: "Ooh, sorry, Lord Megatron. The correct word was... 'Decepticon'."

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 September 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Knockout: *while doing a crossword puzzle* Lord Megatron, whats a ten letter word for disappointment? | Megatron: ...... Starscream.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 September 2020 - 01:20 PM)

@Bass X0 Shockwave did it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 September 2020 - 11:56 AM)

At least it's not Suntwerker.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

I read that name as "suntweaker" the first time, and was terrified for a moment...

@  Bass X0 : (23 September 2020 - 03:41 AM)

Prowl did nothing wrong.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 September 2020 - 01:50 AM)

Smashy, Stabby, Selfy, and Shieldy.

@  Xero Prime : (22 September 2020 - 08:52 PM)

Let's just hope that Nintendo be as hands off as possible and let Retro do their thing.

Third time giving Other M a playthrough! Dear heavens! Why would you do that to yourself?

 

Because I can skip the cutscenes now! Which reveals just how little it had to do with the actual gameplay...

My big wishlist/brainstorm for the next Metroid game?  Make it 2.5D.  We know Retro has experience with that (DKC), and games like Shadow Complex show how a modern Metroidvania title might work with multilayer elements (fore and background interactions).

 

What if the next Metroid title took cues from the current Zelda title but in 2D.  Prior games had a spaceship, but you almost never actually used it.  What if you could actually use the ship to travel to different planets (with unique power ups and upgrades) each offering some different experiences all searching for clues to a space pirate hide outs.  Coordinates you can either guess at on a map, or raid pirate locations to find clues.  Locations offer different upgrade paths and salvage/crafting possibilities for other types of upgrades, allowing you to modify the suit (and your game style) to your own preferences.  Maybe you'd prefer an ice beam, or maybe you find the parts/elements to create a ice missile instead.  Each having their own benefits/drawbacks.  Perhaps you find a hidden science facility, offering you a rare regeneration upgrade...at the cost of upgrade slots.  Or maybe you find a lost Chozo cache allowing a massive upgrade to your suit (offering a multi-missile system instead of having to ration between different kinds of missiles)

Open up the game allowing problems to be approached from different angles.  Speed boost across a long pit, or maybe space jump.  Or find the spider-ball upgrade and roll along the walls.

 

I think they could really expand on the old Metroid play system and incorporate some unique angles on a 2D Metroid title.

Having just finished BotW last night...Metroid done in a similar style sounds like a dream come true.

So now that Prime 4 rumors are starting to spreed

 

I can for the first time say that its more then likely might be true

 

A set of Nintendo reps stopped by my store about a year ago and one of the reps let me know that Miyamoto was in Texas and visiting Retro Studios hmmm I wonder why?

 

 

Im stoked for a new entry into the Metriod Prime series but I also long for a good 2D version as well

Called it!!

 

But what I did not expect was Metriod 2...lets call it a revisit to SR 388

So two new titles in the coming year this is gonna be fun

Except according to a fact sheet Retro isn't involved.

Well now we know why they swiftly came down on AM2R. Part of me is mad about how they handled it but now having an enhanced 3DS game version of Metroid II in a few months is gonna be sweet.

Publicly they put the kibosh to AM2R they had to

 

But im sure if you wanted to look deep enough the game is there and mostly likely still being worked on

 

I was not very interested in the fan project to began with though so Im not an expert on the matter

Oh I know it. Should still have the initial final build on my computer. It was a great remake in the GBA style like Zero Mission. And I fully understand why Nintendo had to shut it down. Doesn't mean I like it any better for a good effort put into multiple years and excellent results only to not be able to share it in a decent way just because they couldn't get their butts in gear to do it themselves before he did.

Fun Fact: Metroid 2 was the only Metroid game I played until the Gamecube/GBA era.

My Dad's girlfriend got it for me for Xmas along with a Game Boy Pocket and Super Game Boy.

 

It also came out the year I was born, so maybe it was pretty cheap by then.

I also forgot it was a Game Boy game for the longest time because I only played it in the Super Game Boy.

I mainly used the Game Boy itself for Pokemon and Donkey Kong Land
