King Nine, however, will not return.

@  Bass X0 : (09 July 2020 - 05:05 PM)

Bass_X0 will return after these messages ^^^

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 July 2020 - 03:37 PM)

WHATAMIFIGHTINGFOOOOOOOOARRGH

@  -LittleAutob... : (09 July 2020 - 02:06 PM)

Okay?

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

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.

@  -LittleAutob... : (08 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

All this over someone's username lol

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 08:34 AM)

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.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

Bossk Saw

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

Bass XD

@  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.

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@Trpodeca :( :(

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Thats what a gray rock is? Then I'm not one.

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  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.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

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

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  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"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (06 July 2020 - 11:18 AM)

Oof-

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 July 2020 - 01:10 AM)

I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 July 2020 - 10:19 PM)

If I had a sarcasm powered mouth.. ooohh waaaiiittt...

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 05:01 PM)

Heh

@  Bass X0 : (04 July 2020 - 02:56 PM)

"If I had sarcasm-powered legs, I'd do a happy dance...!"

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 July 2020 - 02:39 PM)

The real clones were the friends we made along the way.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:47 AM)

(And the 0th anniversary of the last time I couldn't do math.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Oh the end of the Ottoman Empire of course.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 10:14 AM)

*ahem* 4th of July....

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 08:14 AM)

Nothing of importance has happened before, and nothing of importance will happen again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 08:12 AM)

Nothing of importance happened today.

@  Telly : (03 July 2020 - 09:54 PM)

i want a "i survived 'rona and all i got was this lousy t-shirt"

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 July 2020 - 03:42 PM)

Slogan for 2021: "I Lived, Bitch."

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

They should make the next book in the Survivors series 'I SURVIVED CORONA VIRUS 2020'

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

YEEEE I'M A SURVIVOR-

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:59 AM)

Probably gonna assemble Devastator after work.

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:58 AM)

Ooooh. Overload arrived. He's surprisingly fun.

@  Bass X0 : (02 July 2020 - 04:00 PM)

He's sweeter than the average bear.

That "Russian Avengers" movie, Guardians, is out with an English dub (or sub if you want) at Walmart.  Haven't watched my copy yet, plan to this weekend.

Finished watching it.  It's okay, but the cool speedster doesn't get to do a whole lot more than we saw in the trailers.  There's one bit with subtitles even in the dub, I presume it's because the character isn's speaking Russian (or English).

The one with the bear man and the sickle guy?

Does it have a decent story at least? (Is it more whedon Avengers? Or BvS? Or Civil War?) How was the acting?

I want it to be a success but I heard it wasn't too good.

There's some fairly awkward beats because they want it set in the present day, but for it to be the result of Soviet-era supersoldier programs...so everyone's conveniently immortal.  It does lead to some decent character moments, at least.  

 

The basic plot is:

Spoiler

 

Some of the lines may work better in Russian, but I suspect the "You lost because you had no access to rocks for your geokinesis, so your special power-boosting uniform has rocks on it," scene was meant to sound kinda stupid in any language.

 

One annoying bit is that the Token Female has the power of invisibility.  When she's in water.  And naked.  She also has immunity to temperature extremes, but kinda needs it since being nude underwater is a requirement for her base power.  (Her special suit lets her be clothed and not in water while invisible, but she's still wallowing in "the girl on the team" tropes.)

I think i might pick this up. Sounds fun in a 'watchable but not super great' kind of way.

Basically.  And it's like $10 at Walmart, so it's not like you're paying import prices or something.

Geez, that poor lady's superpower. I bet it comes into play in the end and all that. The sickle guy is the geokinetic?

Hmm, I'll check it out some time. But what's the redeeming factor? The action?

Sickle guy is superspeedster martial artist.  Geokinetic has a big beard, and the buried lede with his rock-covered suit is that they also figured out how to let him channel his powers to make the rocks into a lightning-connected rock whip.  Werebear gets miniguns that switch into automatic "shoot whatever he's angry at" mode when he hits full bear mode.  Nifty teamwork effect once Invisible Comrade gets her suit is that she can turn people she touches invisible, so the lightning rock whip being invisible is pretty effective.

Saw it in very bad subtitles. Should have seen it in an English dub.

Sigh. If only the main bad guy wasn't in an ugly rubber muscle suit. Couldn't take him seriously. Geokinetic was more awesome when he was doing moves ala Toph from Last Airbender. Once he had a whip, he got eeeeeeeh. Invisible lady had moves and abs, haha. Her turning the whip invisible was just a one time thing tho. Oh well.

Speedster looked more like a teleporter really. And he really could have done so many things and finished up quick. Him being Asian Russian whatever was, well, cool actually.

Didn't like the power combination. The geokinetic possibly could have taken down the tower easy if he could metal bend.

I think my favorite part was when muscle were bear turned into a full bear. I started gushing on how cute he was, mailing those people, haha. Then they hung him on a rope! How adorable, haha!

It could have been better, sigh. I wanted it to be better.

The lady commander looked so familiar. Friend said she was Calahan from Police Academy and she totally does the look! Hahaha!
