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.

@  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

@  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.

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

 

Step aside. North America's got this.

 

Retro not working on this title aside, the original Metroid Prime was good as it was because Nintendo came in and whipped the studio into shape. They weren't notable at all beforehand and the studio was rife with problems.

And Super Mario Bros. 2, being the scenario writer for Link to the Past and Ocarina of Time, the entire original Metroid Prime series, a producer on the Smash Bros. series, and both Donkey Kong Country Returns titles.

 

But yanno, let's just unfairly single things out I guess.

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

Also me to in the first post :D

Yeah, but I mean Noideaforaname was spot on. That's scary accuracy. 

 

Also, let's be honest. We'd never know if you gave out winning lottery numbers due to typos.

So when I first heard that they were going to release both a remake of Metroid 2 on 3DS and a Metroid Prime 4 on Switch, I gotta admit, I was thrilled for the remake. But I didn't have a Switch at the time and wasn't sure when or even if I would ever get one. So I couldn't say I was too excited about a Prime4.

Well, now I have a Switch and I'm feeling kinda excited. I say kinda because in the 5 months since the teaser, we've heard absolutely nothing. And even the teaser was little more than a logo and a line saying it was now in production.

Now in production doesn't even say much. Did they just begin production 5 months ago. Are they somewhere in the middle of the production process? Near the end? We don't know.

C'mon, Nintendo! Hype me! Get me on the edge of my seat. Really get the waiting anxiety to a pressure peak. I'm begging you, tell us something!

The odd thing about Nintendo is, usually, they don't announce a game a LONG way in advance.  Usually, they only announce a game a few months from when it actually releases.  Not always, but often.  So...I'd guess Metroid 4 will be out sometime by next summer, anyway.  Maybe before, who knows.

Why, hello new trailer two months after the game's release.

https://www.youtube....h?v=3bxcbospvGo
 
No DLC on the way, not even unlocking the Amiibo functions, so why the trailer?  Is it just remind holiday shoppers that the game exists, or is Nintendo keeping metroid in people's minds for another reason?

 

Oh, and the second part is just a somewhat spoilery trailer for Samus Returns, not anything new.  Both trailers only use clips from the sidescrolling games, for whatever reason.

Many 3D Zelda 1st release titles would be the counter argument. Usually a year or two between announcement and release.

The issue this time around was that Nintendo was promoting a new system from a position of weakness.

 

The WiiU was utter failure, one their worst ever.  This after the platform success of Wii failed to translate to significant sales for third parties who felt little desire to support the device going forward (contributing to the WiiU's many problems).  The broader consumer base had largely "forgotten" Nintendo as a viable platform for modern games, fans weren't supremely happy with a number of recent titles for both the 3DS (Federation Force) and WiiU (Star Fox Zero),  and Nintendo needed something to "seed" an investment of interest from fans and consumers.

 

The announcements of Metroid Prime 4 and the new mainline Pokemon game (which didn't even get a true teaser) were Nintendo's way of showing future investment.  They might not be coming SOON, but their announcement showed a commitment to the platform beyond the few second phase titles they had shown(Kirby, Yoshi), or could be safely assumed (Smash Bros) coming within the next year or so.

Yeah, I thought about that, too. But a lot of the time, some of those "announcements" were more-or-less tech demos.  Or they didn't give us a title or anything, and just said that a Zelda title was coming "soon".

Well...Metroid doesn't seem to be the system seller that Zelda or Pokemon is (maybe I'm wrong, though).  It feels a little...off if it's much more than maybe a year out.  Especially since they're getting Xenoblade 2 out THIS year (seems like THAT might be a bit of a rush, but we'll see, and that's a completely different tangent).  And that seems to me like it'd be a much "bigger" game to program than a Metroid Prime title (and I could be VERY wrong about that, depending on what they're doing).

Actually, and I realize this is just me, but the realization that Metroid Prime 4 was one of those things in my mind that made the switch go from "well, I'd really like to get a Switch, but I just don't have the money to be getting these things like I used to" to a "okay, I have to find a way to make this work."

Of course, I understand if that's just me. I mean, I already had Breath of the Wild for Wii U and Mario, while nice and fun to play, I'm sorry to say it but it never has been a system seller for me.

While Nintendo usually doesn't announce games super far out, they did only show a logo in the teaser.  That's pretty unlikely if they had anything to actually show.  It was probably pre-Alpha at the time, and might still have been in the concept stage.  Hopefully, they'll have a proper trailer to show by next E3.

You know, I love Metroid. So I don't want this thread to get further and further down the list only to be archived. So I'm bumping it. And one thing I will mention...that maybe I should've mentioned before but was kinda busy and/or just wasn't thinking about it...

Samus Returns won Best Handheld. How awesome is that?!?

Just heard about it, found it, downloaded it, played it and finished it in the space of a week.  I always lamented having never played the first sequel to my favorite NES game ever (I HATE portables) and now I feel like it's something I can cross off my bucket list.
