Surprised we didn't get a full size retool from the monsterbot mold. I'd rather have a CW Ironhide retool though, we need a van Wilder.

@  tigerhawk : (07 May 2021 - 04:19 PM)

I just noticed Wilder was the only omission from Takara Legends.

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 06:01 AM)

Even more weirdly, it was the early shift where some people had their regular day off for the week, while the late shift was supposed to have full attendance (not counting sick days, vacations and overtime reduction).

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 01:15 AM)

The weirdest part was that there was a steady influx of voters during the early shift, while hardly anyone showed up during the late shift.

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 01:14 AM)

Wow, that was a long day. But it's over, and I finally got some sleep. Not particularly happy with the outcome, but then again, my candidates both admit they didn't really campaign that much.

@  Echowarrior : (06 May 2021 - 08:56 PM)

Best of luck, Nevermore.

@  wonko the sane? : (06 May 2021 - 10:18 AM)

The election committee whose chairman I am has been preparing this election since February. There's no real gain for me either way, so I don't care that much for the outcome, but it's going to be a stressful day for me either way.

@  Nevermore : (05 May 2021 - 03:13 PM)

Wish me luck. Tomorrow is this year's supervisory board election at my workplace, and I'm the guy in charge of organizing the election.

My TR Perceptor fell and the titan master peg in the leg snapped off. Fortunately I have the Legends one.

It's a fairly well known fact that "it's a wonderful life" only became popular after it dropped into the public domain. So, yeah, they probably did.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (02 May 2021 - 08:29 PM)

I read an interesting observation on Twitter. If it is the natural course of a human to grow into Grandpa Abe yelling at a cloud, but nostalgia also yields rose-tinted glasses for the likes of one's youth, then did Greatest Generation adults bemoan how Baby Boomer children loved box office flops such as The Wizard of Oz and It's a Wonderful Life?

You’re traveling down a rabbit hole I dare not follow

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:26 AM)

At the same time, with my almost non-existent knowledge of Japanese and how oddly some things translate, seeing "Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges" made me wonder if that would make it "JoJoJo"... which now has my brain terrified of a weird Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo/Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Crossover. @[email protected]

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:24 AM)

It is always weird when things align.  This talk of Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges in the SquawkBox reminded me of King Gorgeous Gorge on the FoxBox.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 May 2021 - 08:52 PM)

Nice

@  Nevermore : (01 May 2021 - 09:03 AM)

I got one even better: After that character by the name of Gorgeous Giorgios dies in a gorge, they name that whole area after him: The Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges.

@  tigerhawk : (30 April 2021 - 01:56 AM)

Paint apps did slide notably during TR, wave one's Titan Masters had detail but wave 2 onwards was absent of them. Wave 5's Ramhorn, Dreadnaut, Scorchfire and Aimless had detail but Murk and Hazard didn't, can't speak for Flameout as I got Legends Twintwist and Slugslinger.

Anyone here got any g1 jet fire parts for sale?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 April 2021 - 04:12 PM)

Other than a few overly tight joints, the paints apps are my single complaint about the generations line.

@  tigerhawk : (29 April 2021 - 02:25 PM)

I just saw Legends Leo Prime now I wish Titans Return Alpha Trion had a few more paint apps for ship mode.

I'd like to know what society he's talking about, and what qualifies as "nothing", TBH.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 April 2021 - 05:09 PM)

I don't see the point in such a poorly defined "everyone is terrible" statement. He's not complaining about any specific people or specific problems.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 April 2021 - 05:06 PM)

I do not see anything about Bass's comment that felt a need for you to attack him.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 April 2021 - 04:35 PM)

Bass: does that "everyone" include yourself or are you just trying to act like you're better than everybody without actually proving anything?

@  wonko the sane? : (26 April 2021 - 04:10 PM)

Mostly it's "oh, don't say that right now" and "better learn when to duck".

@  Bass X0 : (26 April 2021 - 04:05 PM)

There's something to be said about society when everyones just an inch away from snapping over nothing.

Did a topic search, nothing came up. . .. . 

 

Warframe is now 5 years old.  I started playing about a month ago with friends from work. It's a free game on Xbox, PC, and PS4.  You play, basically, a space ninja who kicks ass for materials used to make new gear.  

You spend real money for more spots to hold weapons and Warframes (the afformentioned space ninjas) or you can grind and trade your way though.  Everything is available to purchase for real money, but you can also just play the game and earn it all.  

 

With the 5 year anniversary comes gifts.  A free skin for the best starter warframe, Excalibur, and 4 *very* easy quests to give you a new primary, secondary, melee, and a shiny cape for your warframes.  Each comes with a free weapon slot so you don't have to give up your owned weapons or spend money to get new spots and each one has an "orokin reactor" installed.  What that does is give you double the mod space so you can make your weaponry even more jacked and powerful.

 

Is there anyone else here that plays?  

This is what I've been playing since Destiny 2 has hit a drag.

I looked into it back when I was deciding whether to keep banging my head against Destiny 2 or jump back into Halo 5.

It looked a little rough, but I hear it's a ton of fun. It's third-person rather than first person, right?

Yeah, it's third person. 

That's pretty much the choice I made. Had friends who were playing it. I'd done everything available in Destiny 2.  Just don't feel like puttering around for nothing in D2 right now.  It's just not fun at this point. Hoping the next DLC will change things.

So, reviving this thread cause there was some pretty major drops at this year's Tennocon:

First up, new open world area in Venus, Speederbikes and FULL ON SHIP TO SHIP COMBAT, COMPLETE WITH BOARDING ACTION.


Second is a teaser for the next major quest. Trailer contains MAJOR spoilers for The Sacrfice quest, so if you haven't completed that wait until you finish that.


I absolutely can't wait for all of this upcoming stuff.

Ms Virion suggested that I try it out, since it's coming to Switch. Seems pretty good, though I've only just started.

Need to fine tune the controls a little before I get much further in. Waaay too sensitive for my controller.

My only serious complaint so far is that it's visually super muddy. Hopefully things get more colorful and vivid once you get out of the opening areas, but so far it's kind of hard to tell one thing from another.

Minor complaint that it seems gender is tied to class and that always leaves me a bit irked. Not a major issue, but it stands out to me.

Gender is meaningless with regards to Warframe.  Not going to spoil any story, but just play it.  Gender is meaningless.

Except that a number of the descriptions of the frames on the website use gendered pronouns, so there is explicit sex and gender attached to some of the individual frames.  Now, looking into it some more, it seems to be because

Spoiler

Which does help clear up the lore side of things and is actually a pretty fascinating concept to explore.

 

In any case, given there's a pretty wide array of available warframes of many styles and designs and how customizable they are, it's not as much of an issue as it would be in other instances.  This doesn't suffer from the woman=weak-and-fast/man=strong-and-slow thing. For someone who traditionally plays female characters in fantasy settings like this, it's something I look out for.

 

Having put a few more hours into the game, I definitely like it.  I love how fluidly I can swap into and out of melee combat and that melee is an actual skill and not just I-hit-you-with-gun thing.  I love my bo-staff/machine gun combo XD

 

Plays like a dream, too.  Haven't had to fiddle with the graphics settings much outside of fitting it to my screen and turning off motion blur.

Not far yet.  Not had much time to really settle down and play.  Haven't even got off Earth yet, mainly because I'm trying to hunt down a specific enemy type to kill so I can unlock the Venus junction. Gotta get one more Eximus.  Got stymied for a bit because I forgot what they looked like, but now I know... just gotta find the time to actually do it.

13 hours in and I am enjoying the hell out of this game.

 

So, like, I'm doing a defense mission, right? And I'm dakka-dakka-ing waves of enemies with my rifle.  Oh, what's that?  Enemies getting too close and numerous?  Lemme just break my hugging bo-staff and just start going to town!  What's that?  Too many for even that?  Lemme just break out my hugging energy sword that crackles with lighting and shoots waves of energy and just mow down the enemies in literal droves.

 

Mind the gap? More like, double-jump the gap and then glide to the other side!  Wall jumping, ledge grabbing, double-jumping, gliding (while shooting!) the mobility in this game is off the chain.  I am so looking forward to the open map with Fortuna, it's not even funny.

 

My only complaints so far is that it's kind of hard to judge where to find materials for building things.  That or I just don't get what the material descriptions are referring to.  In fact, knowing where to go is kind of a bit issue I've had over all.  I mean, I've not encountered anything I didn't like, but so far I feel like there's a lack of overarching direction that would otherwise push me in a specific direction.  I freed my warframe and then the story just sort of sputters to a halt.  I'm three worlds in and so far I don't really get a sense for an overall plot or direction.  That may be intentional, that your main job after being freed is mostly to just go around doing missions and stuff till certain conditions are met.  But I do feel that it's not very clearly set out before the player.

 

But hug it, just going around and doing missions is hella fun enough on its own, perhaps more story focus would only get in the way of laying down a swath of destruction before you XD

the story is very slow to roll out.  They want you at higher power levels before tackling certain things.  Be sure to check your codex to see if new missions have popped up there for you

I believe I fulfilled the requirements to receive Hydroid Prime at least, but didn't get anything, which I think had to be due to some kind of glitch. I was only really interested in the pistol as well. 

 

But it's small potatoes. I'm really looking forward to the new open world and its gorgeous visual design, as well as being able to replace Nova's useless 2 with whichever of Wisp's 2 or 3 she grants.


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?
