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.

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 July 2020 - 06:19 AM)

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 10:21 PM)

21 for me, but after numerous repetitions I got it down to 17 and a half.

@  -LittleAutob... : (30 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

x-x when in vehicle mode we can travel much F A R T H E R-

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

Because despite the fact that we can travel around the world in the time it takes to get a good nights sleep and a couple of meals: people rarely wander more than 25 miles away from home for the duration of their lives.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I don't know how many days that trip takes - especially while sightseeing - but explaining they're 3936 kilometers (2445 miles) apart gives an idea, paradoxically because it is too large to easily picture.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:44 PM)

Aye.  When I catch lay people discussing miles and not how long the trip takes, it is in an attempt to stress how far away something is... like NYC to LA.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

But I can imagine 45 *minutes* easily.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

I can imagine a mile, it's a distance I've run. I can't really imagine 45 miles.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:19 PM)

I think there's also an element of the thing where things that are much bigger than us all blur together.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:49 AM)

If you're not, then you're more concerned with how long it takes.  Actual distance doesn't tell you that very well.  Besides traffic and road conditions, you'll need to know what kind of driving (city/interstate/rural/etc.).

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:47 AM)

Distance matters if you're being paid by the mile.

@  TM2-Megatron : (30 June 2020 - 11:44 AM)

Canadians are the same way, for the most part. If you're driving somewhere far, especially, it helps you plan out the day more than a distance in KM would.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:42 AM)

We use the time it takes to get someplace because that is what is relevant to us.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Because even we can't figure out miles half the time.

@  Paladin : (30 June 2020 - 09:54 AM)

it's a big country with a lot of empty space. between our citizens' ears.

@  Bass X0 : (30 June 2020 - 09:52 AM)

Why do most Americans measure distance by hours of driving?

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 07:26 PM)

And as a result the world's lone blu-ray release of the film, an Australian disc that came out 7 years ago, now goes for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Thanks Disney.

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 06:21 PM)

Well, they censored Daryl Hannah's butt in Splash :rolleyes

@  Paladin : (29 June 2020 - 05:43 PM)

maybe New Mutants is too bad even for D+.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 June 2020 - 05:00 PM)

X-Men films are coming to Disney+ next month. But will they censor Hugh Jackman's butt?

@  Cybersnark : (29 June 2020 - 09:47 AM)

I don't want to be reissued. This body sucks, I wanna be updated.

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 09:43 AM)

I definitely don't intend to be reissued. Nobody would buy me.

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 08:31 AM)

will anybody else attempt to be reissued?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 June 2020 - 07:51 AM)

*Gasp* Decepticons re-writing history to serve their own needs?!?!

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 05:48 AM)

The whole point of the DJD is that they're fanatical Megatron fanboys (especially Tarn) to the point of having their own headcanon taking priority of the actual canon, simply speaking.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 04:01 AM)

They didn't know the war was over until later. And then they denied it anyway.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 June 2020 - 10:47 PM)

"He's comin' right for us!"

@  Telly : (28 June 2020 - 08:40 PM)

was that even still in effect once the war ended?

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 June 2020 - 06:51 PM)

According to Roberts, soldiers can ignore the order to spare Whirl if he's directly threatening them. But mostly the DJD were out of their heads on Nuke and not really caring much at the time.

@  Xaaron : (28 June 2020 - 06:41 PM)

Also, they were hopped up on goofballs at the time.

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

Cause it was whirl. He opened his (non-existant.) gob at the just the right time to piss somebody off. Or, so I assume.

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 June 2020 - 06:00 PM)

If Whirl was off limits why did the DJD kill him?

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 June 2020 - 05:57 PM)

That sounds about right. I actually didn't get into it until the IQ expansion came out (which saved me a bit of expense)

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

Weird question (and sorry for so many shouts): did Overpower really release in August of '95?  I could have sworn I attempted to play it with a classmate who shouldn't have been a classmate by that point.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

So... I don't have all my cards still somewhere. XP I still play Pokémon via the PTCGO, and I've been doing Card of the Days over on Pojo (on and off) since 2013.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:51 PM)

For both financial, personal, and practical reasons, all my collectibles had to go about 10 years ago: action figures, comic books, card games, RPG books, video games.

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 June 2020 - 05:48 PM)

I've still got all my cards, somewhere; I had a pretty decent collection. Still have the Japanese Digimon CCG, too. Glad I never got into Magic; way too pricey

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Technically, Overpower was my first TCG... except I never, ever learned how to play it, or understood that booster packs contained different cards than the Starter Decks.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:35 PM)

Can't forget what you didn't know in the first place.

@  Patch : (27 June 2020 - 05:28 PM)

Ah yes, Overpower. Who could forget the expansion where they added a new stat and you had to re-collect your heroes all over again.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 June 2020 - 04:20 PM)

Counterpoint, when was the last time you spent money on Overpower?

Woot! Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age was announced about 20 minutes before my daughter was born, so I am a little late posting this, but I am stoked to see an official announcement. 

 

 

Anyone else excted to see a new main line numbered Dragon Quest game come to consoles for the first time in 13 years!

Really hoping we get a good voice cast. VIII so far has been the only one other than the original to really hook me, and a lot of it was do to the vocals from each of the characters.... well except the hero :D

Great news! I'm still torn on DQX. On the one hand, I hate that it didn't arrive here. On the other hand, FFXI consumed so much of my time that I really don't want to get sucked into another MMORPG.

 

I'm curious about which version(s) will be localized. I'm not sure which one(s) I want more. I want to immediately go with the console version, just for the presentation and big screen experience. I actually really like being able to play the whole series on 3DS though, and that split screen 3D/2D overhead aspect is something I really appreciate.

That's something I have a bit of a bone to pick with with DQX, and FFXI and XIV. It just annoys me that these MMO's are part of the main line of games.I'd wish they had kept them as the start of a new Online series of numberings instead of in the main series. What happens one day when the servers get shut down for DQX or FFXI. You won't be able to go back and play them again. So if you wanted to play the full series there will be one or two that just won't be possible some day.

I'm also not a fan of MMOs as main-series entries for DQ or FF. Dragon Quest XI looks wonderful, though. I really hope we get the 3DS version in NA.

There's not really a "one day" to it. As poorly received as FFXIV was on launch (I did play it then, and it really was disappointing), it appears to have ended up with a really neat storyline and concluding event. Unfortunately, there's no way to ever play through that scenario again following the shutdown and relaunch. That's the biggest thing aside from lack of time that's helped me not get back into XIV. I know there's a significant chunk of content to the game that's simply unplayable. Not being able to experience the full story helps keep me from getting invested into the idea of playing it again going forward.

I can't imagine them not bringing over both the PS4 and 3DS versions. Heck, we will probably get a version for the switch if they can get the kinks worked out on it.

So...the good news is that Dragon Quest XI is coming out September 4 on the PS4.  It'll even have voice acting and a couple of improvements over the Japanese version.

 

Bad news is no 3DS version (boo!).  And the Switch version won't be out for a long while.

Bleh. I was uncertain whether I wanted to go with the 3DS version or the Switch version. I haven't picked up a PS4 yet, and it doesn't look to be coming in the near future with payments for my wife's student loans starting up last month. Guess I'll just have to wait and hope they don't cancel the Switch version.

The last couple DQ games I played were the most recent ones for the 3DS. I never did finish either of them before getting the Switch and retiring the 3DS. So a new mainline game that's not an MMO will be nice to get into.

I think the last one I actually finished was IX...that was the DS one with the train, right? Wow! I just said DS instead of 3DS. I didn't realize it had been that long!

DQ7 and DQ8 were remastered and released on the 3DS in the last couple of years. DQXI has a 3DS version, but it looks like it will only be coming out in Japan. Too bad as it had a neat gimmick where the Bottom Screen was a SNES version of the game and the top screen was the 3DS version of the same game.

Well, the Ps4 has 3 other great Dragon Quest games, so I would highly recommend getting a PS4 for those alone.
