No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

Bazro.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

Jellystone. We're going to be plunged into a decade of poor animation. Fortunately we've been led by bad cartoon characters for years so we won't notice much difference.

That said: I've now decided that my ideal SG Drift would be the Rich Texan from the Simpsons. Same colours as regular Drift, but his robot mode looks like a suit with bolo tie instead of samurai armour, his helmet looks like a cowboy hat (with a nose-guard), and he turns into a muscle car with cow horns on the hood.

Greg dropped some druthers so I'll throw in one of my own. I wanted to have Rodimus take on the identity of "Rodimus Prime, Supervillain from the Future.", basically using an armor-trailer (at one time I was looking at Energon Landmine as a body), he would make an excuse, go get in his armor, and pretend to be his future self as a Prime, time-travelling back to mess with Optimus, who falls for the gag every time no matter how obvious it is to everyone else.

A Naruto color scheme, while hilarious, would've never worked for SG Drift. He's the opposite of positive Drift, so he needs to be the exact opposite of a weeaboo.

And yet, a "weeaboo" is pretty much what Hydra wrote SG Drift as being.

I'd really love SG to be the Generations line theme for a year or so. Some of it would be redundant (OP, Megatron, etc) but I'm not sure all the major characters the club has done would be guaranteed a spot. Throw a handful of new molds in for kicks and the remainder can be remolds/repaints.

Eh mirror universe stories are best used sparingly. The longer they're out there, the more it's clear that things don't really make much sense, requiring increasingly convoluted explanations as to why things are so different but other things are exactly the same.

Isn't that how most alternate timeline stories work? Mathematically speaking, it makes no sense that anyone can find realities with familiar doppelgängers with ease if the multiverse has a nigh-infinite number of myriad diverse universes.

Normal Drift is Genji, so SG Drift should clearly be McCree.
You thought Hanzo, but that's Deadlock.

 

Would making SG Drift an actual cowboy be a little too close to SG Bludgeon? 

 

Alright so I helped develop (if you could call it that; it was always just a hint of an idea) the anime fan Naruto-Drift, but the idea for Drift that I pitched myself was that he was a wandering spiritual faith healer, who was actually able to focus the energy of his Ember and fix minor ailments. But as people begged him to visit their hometowns and started offering money to try to coerce him, he started to realize the more he "could do" the more people were willing to offer him. He began to make false claims about the limits of his ability. He rose to televangelist fame, having his own TV show where he performed grandiose "miracles". He would fix the blind, the mute, the paralyzed.... Even claiming to have brought back the dead. But his empire collapsed when Optimus Prime, fearing Drift was becoming a rival, sent a spy in to expose Drift's frauds. Then after Drift lost it all, Optimus strolled in with an offer - work for him and Drift would get all the money he wanted. Drift couldn't refuse and didn't ask what he was getting paid to do, which ultimately turned out to be the Autobot wet work. Optimus had taken a healer and made him a killer, something in which the sadist found no end to his sick pleasure.

 

Which... I guess could still be the unexplored back story for Mech with a Mouth! :D

"We could just... go on an carefree adventure."

 

You know, this here is why I don't mind all the multiverse stuff happening in SG.

 

SG took all of the brand's typical character and plot quirks and twisted up their absurdity and ridiculousness. So if you take one of the "usual" universal doomsday plots that Transformers fiction face at least once in their lifespan, what better place to amp the threat up to the multiversal level than SG?

 

(Though that said, I might have preferred the events that led to the multiversal kerfluffin be just as silly. Like instead of it being that Ultra Magnus is evil and greedy, it was actually the two Octopunches meeting, firing at each other, and accidentally tearing a hole in the multiverse as their harpoon lasers collided. Because a single universe just can't handle two Octopunches.)

Thrust and Ramjet have never really had the character "hook" that Dirge does. He's practically a meme. Thrust is...what?...a cowardly bully? Not really interestingly reversible. And what would Ramjet be? A guy who doesn't headbutt things and hates toast?

 

I mean, maybe you could get a riff going about Ramjet being a Sunstreaker-type with an awesome, indestructible head that he refuses to use lest it get scuffed, but...
