Figures that Walmart finally restocks Studio Voyagers...with Wave ONE

@  ThunderWear : (19 January 2020 - 09:27 AM)

I snagged Rainmakers for half off.  They make me want jolly ranchers.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 04:21 PM)

I was using my account on another comptuer, and oddly it seemed to default to $US rather than converting it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 January 2020 - 02:02 PM)

You should be able to set eBay to display in your local currency, although personally I like to know the actual currency the item is listed in so I know if I need to account for forex fees or not

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:34 AM)

I'd also like to take the opportunity to say I despise Ebay for showing the list prices in US money.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:23 AM)

Well there is an overpriced limited edition, but I don't want to pay that much money for it.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:21 AM)

Well great. The one Usagi Yojimbo volume I don't have and it's out of stock.

@  Rycochet : (17 January 2020 - 06:15 PM)

I both love and hate that the Alien franchise seems to have had more luck finding a niche as a line of children's toys than it has at producing worthwhile films.

@  Donocropolis : (17 January 2020 - 06:35 AM)

I've seen them on the shelves at Walmart. They're pretty great looking retro Aliens toys. https://www.walmart....-Vary/934039489

@  fourteenwings : (17 January 2020 - 01:11 AM)

IIRC somebody on here mentioned an unbranded Alien toy a couple of weeks ago? It seems like it was actually part of a collection for the Alien movie series by Lanard. Mattel's making some stuff too.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 January 2020 - 03:12 PM)

Is it really a worse name than say, HMS Spanker?

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 January 2020 - 02:36 PM)

'Boaty McBoatface' was a actual thing?! Wow.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (14 January 2020 - 02:00 PM)

Might be worth bringing back this thread.

@  ThunderWear : (14 January 2020 - 01:53 PM)

Of course I had the idea to download all the pdfs like a week too late. Anyone got an archive?

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 January 2020 - 12:48 PM)

The Collector Club is dead. Seems like it all came down shortly after New Year

@  ThunderWear : (13 January 2020 - 11:06 PM)

I can't get to the collector club website. anyone else? I was literally going to download all the fiction to finish reading.

Even in fallout, they never carpet bombed with nukes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (12 January 2020 - 12:43 PM)

I hope the stockpiled nuclear weapons of the US and Russia are accounted for then.

@  Nevermore : (12 January 2020 - 12:22 PM)

Geez. 1760 (!) bombs from World War II that had not detonated and were still armed have been found. That's only the numbers for the federal state of Germany I live in, and only for the first three quarters of 2019. For all of 2018, the total number was 2811 (!!) bombs.

@  CVReynolds : (11 January 2020 - 11:05 PM)

I've been wanting a Tarantulas that turns into a more realistic tarantula for a long time. Maybe Takara will someday do a Masterpiece, which would be neat. But I really want to see a modernized look like in the IDW comics.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (11 January 2020 - 09:43 PM)

We need more Waspinators.. and rattraps.

@  Ashley : (11 January 2020 - 07:09 PM)

I'm on board with that

@  Dekafox : (11 January 2020 - 06:17 PM)

What I'm hearing is we need Cyberverse Waspinator

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 January 2020 - 01:27 AM)

He's appeared across more branding changes than Waspinator, so maybe it's more the other way around.

@  Ashley : (10 January 2020 - 12:01 AM)

is C3PO the Waspinator of Star Wars? he'll live forever, because it's funny for him to suffer

@  Sabrblade : (09 January 2020 - 11:52 PM)

He's still waiting for them to be funny.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 January 2020 - 10:35 PM)

Why?

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 04:02 PM)

I've been watching South Park, Family Guy and The Simpsons with a straight face for a decade now.

@  wonko the sane? : (09 January 2020 - 03:18 PM)

If that's what it takes to get you to take the medication, sure.

@  Bass X0 : (09 January 2020 - 01:52 PM)

If I go crazy, will you still call me Superman?

@  fourteenwings : (09 January 2020 - 11:37 AM)

I mean, it is easier to protect HDDs, and you can retransfer the data over and over forever?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 January 2020 - 10:45 AM)

Not in this comparison. He's making his own files, so they're (presumably) not restricted by DRM, so he can copy them as many times as he wants. It's potentially more reliable in the long term than hoping the specific copies you originally bought never accrue any damage for the rest of your life.

@  Echowarrior : (09 January 2020 - 10:44 AM)

I prefer physical copies too. Easier to protect something physical and tangible.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 09:55 AM)

I prefer having physical copies.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 January 2020 - 08:56 AM)

I have plenty of physical media I turn into digital media for my plex server. Just finished ripping Ultra Seven

@  fourteenwings : (09 January 2020 - 08:50 AM)

Isn't the general consensus that we're supposed to be over physical media anyways?

@  Paladin : (09 January 2020 - 08:17 AM)

i still don't own a Blu-Ray player.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 January 2020 - 07:35 AM)

My current TV works just fine. I don't see a need to upgrade. And by the time I do, the Next Big Thing will probably be out anyway.

@  Benbot : (09 January 2020 - 03:58 AM)

Me neither. I'm no rebel, though. I'm just poor.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 03:38 AM)

I haven't gone 4K yet, I'm a rebel.

@  Ashley : (07 January 2020 - 11:50 PM)

the comic theme is amazing

@  Bass X0 : (07 January 2020 - 03:18 PM)

Sounds like Victor Caroli but I’m not sure.

@  Bass X0 : (07 January 2020 - 02:35 PM)

Should I recognise the narrator of the Mutant Hunt trailer?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 January 2020 - 04:30 AM)

I got me Titans Return Blaster, now watch them unveil Earthrise Blaster and Generations Perceptor, a retool of Titans Blaster.

@  ThunderWear : (06 January 2020 - 10:22 PM)

I recently switched to to the comic theme here at the Allspark and I'm so happy I just want to look at it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (06 January 2020 - 08:12 AM)

Can you not take so many lines to say anything?

@  fourteenwings : (06 January 2020 - 07:47 AM)

Iunno, maybe people having unique pronunciations of things re:how they understand language makes the world a more colourful place, rather than one where we correct every seemingly grievous error?

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:12 AM)

Others insist on "Michael Yackson".

Actually switch out Vampire for Dragon and he kind of has it.


I guess that's true. But it looks like before I can do that, I'm going to need a key. And I forget where that town is on the map. So... I'm still hoping to find that little strategy guide when I get home.

Found it. I'm grinding to get the magical armor before going to fight that dragon. Kicked my butt on level 10. I'm 12 now. Get the armor, I should be able to save the princess.

I think the main thing that's going to give me trouble is that with the NES, I was well into the 20 lvl's and you can beat the game rather handily with that. But I don't know if they raised the lvl cap on the iOS or made the Dragon Lord harder. Should be interesting either way.

Nah I had this beat at lv 20 myself here a couple months ago. I had to refresh my memory a few times to remember exactly what I had to do a few times but I got through most of it on my own after 20 years or so. Now DQ 2 I never played through so I'm having a harder time.

My main problem I think is that I kinda know certain things I'm supposed to do, but not the order I'm supposed to do it in. So I get my ass kicked trying to do something out of order.

So I just defeated Dragon Quest 1 on the iPad. *goes back a page to see when he got it*

One week ago today! And...umm...I didn't play it at all throughout the week because I was playing DQ XI at my home instead. So basically, I beat this in 3 days.

These older games just aren't as long as I seem to remember.

I'm interested in this game, since I love Toriyama's art and have always wanted to get into DQ, but I'm going to wait until I can find a used copy on Switch. I can't bring myself to buy a DQ game if the money I spend is going to a complete and utter shitstain like Sugiyama; I feel marginally better buying it used just because none of the money I spend will go to him.

 

Of course, that means if there's DLC, I'm not going to buy the DLC... Shit.

I don't know what the story is behind Sugiyama and why you don't like him. But I'm no stranger to not buying something out of principle.

There isn't really any DLC. There were pre-order bonuses which are kinda nice early game but loses a bit of their usefulness later. So really, you wouldn't be missing much at all by getting it used. I don't know when it's supposed to come out for Switch in the States though. Probably going to be a while.

I don't know what the story is behind Sugiyama and why you don't like him.

He bought a newspaper ad in the Washington post saying that the Nanjing Massacre never happened and Japan has nothing to apologize for from WW2. Also, he has a talk show and laughed about LGBT teens committing suicide.

 

He's a reprehensible excuse for a human being.

Wow! Nothing like finding out you just gave money to a complete and utter scumbag like that! I already have the game, so I'm still playing it. It's still a hell of a fun game. But knowing this now, I may have to reconsider getting any DQ games in the future.

Okay, so I got over my boycott and got Dragon Quest 8. I'm loving the game, even if I still hate Sugiyama's guts.

 

Also, despite Sugiyama's shittiness, XI apparently has an extremely positive portrayal of a flamboyant/effeminate gay guy. Like, Sylvando is camp as hell, but he's never mocked by the characters or writing for it, he's one of the most badass, wise and noble characters, he has characterization and development beyond being campy, and most importantly of all, he's never portrayed as predatory. He feels like Yuji Horii and Akira Toriyama giving the most elaborate and awesome "hug you" to Sugiyama.

 

Persona could learn a lot from him.

Even if you bought it new, none of the money would go to him.  Composers of video games don't get royalties on the games.. only on live concerts or OSTs.  He was paid long before anyone bought the game.

So, I bought Dragon Quest 1, 2 and 3 on the Switch. Yeah, I know I just recently beat DQ 1 on iPad, but I've never played 2 or 3 and I wanted to play them as a trilogy. Plus the Switch has an actual controller.

Never having played 2 or 3, I can't wait until I get to them. Makes me really want to hurry through 1.

Im nearing 90 hours on XI S. On the post game treasure hunt and level grind. So for those that played the PS4 version other than the quests with the four in the mid point has there been any other additions you found. I want to say there was one in the post game at Heliodor Castle after the reveal of the post games big bad but Im not sure if I just never hit it before.

I played it on PS4, but I haven't bought it for Switch. I doubt I will just because, dang I sank a hug ton of time into it on PS4 and just can't bring myself to go through it all again.

Purchasing 1, 2 and 3 was my bid for showing support on the Switch. Would love to eventually get 4, 5 and 6.
