It's an annoying thing to have happen in any game. I'm hoping they actually finish releasing all the story mode parts before 3 comes out.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 06:24 AM)

Ahh. Hadn't played that in a long time.. Since before the PVP I think.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 04:33 AM)

Kingdom Hearts Union Cross. Specifically the PVP fights.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 04:31 AM)

What game PennPenn

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 03:13 AM)

Man, I love it when you've got limited attempts at something in a game, said game crashes at the end of the thing, so you lose the attempt but don't get any credit.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 08:44 PM)

I know. I'm back to the classic purple for the first time since the comic theme was introduced.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 08:32 PM)

Alright thanks, gonna be weird without the speech bubble boxes but I'll manage.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 07:59 PM)

Nope, ongoing problem for a bunch of us. The mods know, so... just hunker down and wait. In the mean time: changing themes will sort it out for a bit. Only the comic theme is affected.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 05:36 PM)

Is something going on? I'm missing the buttons to go to the newest post and there's no banner for the forum list, it just says "logo" in the corner.

So he also has White Castle-like qualities?

Fix it, like, found a working power adaptor, or fix it like: there was saudering involved.

There's been consistently good sc-fi flicks; most just fly under the radar as lower-budget or indie pictures

If you can forget about that garbage Ghost in the Shell feature...

@  Steevy Maximus : (10 September 2018 - 09:27 PM)

Upgrade is a GREAT dark sci fi throwback film. Kind of feels like the genre has been nailing some good stuff after a LONG time of drek

So, "I before E, except after Siege"? :D

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (10 September 2018 - 01:59 PM)

Memorandum to all: the word "siege" is spelled with the "i" before the "e".

Funny thing is, I think the pocket edition graphics give the game more personality.

Final Finception

@  Waspinator : (06 September 2018 - 10:29 PM)

They've made a PS4 version of Final Fantasy 15 Pocket Edition. For those keeping score, it's the PS4 version of a smartphone version of a PS4 game.

@  wonko the sane? : (05 September 2018 - 09:20 PM)

Ah HA! turns out the trick to installing the rift software was to run it as an admin. Stupid windows 10.

@  wonko the sane? : (05 September 2018 - 04:58 PM)

Awright! I got the display port working! Which means I can now connect my occulus rift!

@  RichardT1977 : (03 September 2018 - 07:11 PM)

Or just a set of arms and shoulder cannons that combined Legends Godbomber with CW Optimus.

@  RichardT1977 : (03 September 2018 - 07:10 PM)

I still wish someone would make an upgrade kit for Combiner Wars Optimus that transformed from a trailer to a set of limbs with Powermaster shoulder cannons...

@  NotVeryKnightly : (03 September 2018 - 09:48 AM)

As the Tonka GoBots, and by extension Machine Robo, pop up on this forum on a fairly recurring basis, here is a catch-all thread for discussion of them, not limited to just the latest "Masterpiece Machine Robo" or GBWiki discussion.

I had Man-O-War for years before I knew he was a Gobot.  He was just some random toy my Grandma gave me.  I want to say it was because she knew 6 year old me was into Beast Wars, but odds are it was just because she thought I'd like a warship.

Had Brimstone for even longer before learning Rock Lords were an actual thing.

I'm of the opinion that the five-part pilot to the Challenge of the GoBots cartoon had a superior story to that of the three-part pilot to G1 Transformers cartoon.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Stakes are certainly higher. Origin isn't nearly as inventive and fewer characters get effectively introduced.

Super Gobots packaging, with the full painting that wrapped around and the front flap, always seemed super fancy to me. And the toys inside were great.

Unlike in Transformers where everybody would shoot everybody else in every episode, at least the first 10 or so episodes of GoBots was clear that being shot by Cy-Kill's eye beams was a death-level emergency that left other characters horrified just by seeing it.

I feel the 5 parts wind up making the Go-Bots "movie" drag on more often than More than Meets the Eye.

I just can't get over the similarity in the premises of the two series, given there was no chance of them influencing each other. It really does just feel like a TF AU. Makes you wonder how much of the core mythos of Transformers - the steps taken from robots that turn into cars to living, alien machines from a machine planet come to Earth to disguise themselves as vehicles - were simply the natural product of 1980s genre expectations.

 

Then there's Revenge of Cronos, which feels like what Transformers might have looked like if the cartoon was itself conceived in a wacky, parallel Earth. 


Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

I still miss the blue Leader-1 I had as a kid.

Also, I've long found this analysis of their respective toy bases to be interesting.

Speaking of bases, one thing I always admired about Thruster and the Command Center is that there was room for the GoBots to stand around and actually do stuff inside.

I would say I'm surprised, but then again, it's not as though Hasbro made any serious effort to block third party TFs from BotCon.
