@Fenix Twilight Sure. Just not a good one.

@  Fenix Twilight : (25 October 2020 - 04:02 PM)

@Sukoshiko Well his clothes left an impression on you didn't they?

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 October 2020 - 06:09 AM)

I just read "Tesla Cybertruck" like AC/DC's "Thunderstruck", now it won't get out of my head, so I inflict it on all of you as well.

@  Sukoshiko : (25 October 2020 - 12:25 AM)

Tesla Cybertruck: amazing or just silly looking? I can't decide.

@  Sukoshiko : (25 October 2020 - 12:24 AM)

Weird question: I had to deal with a guy today... I'm not exactly up on modern fashions... or even archaic fashions... But this guy... Tuxedo Jacket and shirt, studs in all the button holes except the bottom one, blue jeans, and cowboy boots... Take a moment to imagine that get up. And this was to a business meeting, trying to impress someone. What look is that? Who on earth would dress that way? (I mean on purpose)

@  wonko the sane? : (24 October 2020 - 06:04 PM)

I think the few up here were lost to bad placement, poor weather, and the usual language trap.

@  TM2-Megatron : (24 October 2020 - 04:25 PM)

There are 5 spread around southwestern Ontario, all run by the same company. I've only been to the one in my area, but it seems to do good business even in non-pandemic times. On long weekends, when they do triple features, there's a normally a lineup to get in Friday and Saturday nights

@  Telly : (24 October 2020 - 01:51 PM)

there been one outside of my town for as long as ive been alive at least. its gone through its share of owners and periods of being closed down, but its been open for the past decade at least

@  Otaku : (24 October 2020 - 12:08 PM)

Bias from personal experience, but drive-in theaters are nearly extinct.  I grew up near one but it went out of business in the late 80s, and was torn down and replaced with some other business by the early 90s.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 October 2020 - 07:47 AM)

Out here, I mean. Couldn't comment on their popularity in place where they actually exist.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 October 2020 - 06:44 AM)

I wouldn't know. They've only come back into vogue with the social distancing from the plague, and while some places have made an effort to shoestring the places together, it's all largely too distant to be accessible.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 09:46 PM)

I'd hate to see ours replaced by condos. They're a great way to spend an evening, whether with family or on a date. And they've never been as common in Canada as the US, so we cna't afford to lose as many

@  wonko the sane? : (23 October 2020 - 09:45 PM)

Largely they were either poorly placed or bought out and torn down to be replaced by something other than over priced short term parking. Mostly condos.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 09:14 PM)

I guess your winters are worse, so they have a shorter operating season. Drive-ins in the Toronto area can usually operate until early or mid-December; maybe even into early January if there's no real snowfall, and open up again sometime in March.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 09:13 PM)

THere's really only 1 left in the entire province?

@  wonko the sane? : (23 October 2020 - 09:03 PM)

Ha! It's probably faster for me to drive to your drive in than to make my way to the only one left in quebec.

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Fortunately we still have a drive-in theatre that's exempt from the closures about a 10 minute drive away

@  TM2-Megatron : (23 October 2020 - 06:57 PM)

Theatres around here are closed again for at least another couple weeks (wouldn't be surprised if it's extended by another month or so, either), but that's what they've been doing here as well. Playing the old classics

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 October 2020 - 02:36 PM)

I got Earthrise Megatron, he's better then I thought he'd be though Netflix Megatron is still tops.

@  Bass X0 : (23 October 2020 - 10:44 AM)

The original Rocky movie is also showing. May go next weekend. That’s how you get people back in the theatres - show the old classics every adult loves.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 October 2020 - 10:35 AM)

They did a limited run showing of it up here too, back when the theaters were open... red zones suck.

@  Bass X0 : (23 October 2020 - 10:13 AM)

The original Back To The Future is showing in the Odeon in the UK now. I think I will go see it tomorrow.

@  Donocropolis : (23 October 2020 - 05:51 AM)

It was either the Bumblebee or Cliffjumper. Can't remember the colors.

@  Kalidor : (22 October 2020 - 06:43 PM)

What did it look like?

@  Donocropolis : (22 October 2020 - 01:34 PM)

I swear I remember getting the Happymeal G1 minibot as a child, but I live 2.5 hours from St. Louis, which is the only place they apparently came out. It's possible that I got it on a family vacation, though, as we went to Six Flags pretty often.

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 October 2020 - 01:07 PM)

Conversely, I had the Gobot helicopter from Wendy's and I was absolutely convinced it was an actual Transformer.

@  Donocropolis : (22 October 2020 - 08:13 AM)

I used to rubber-band Hot-Wheels style construction vehicles together and pretend it was Devestator.

@  Bass X0 : (21 October 2020 - 05:26 PM)

When I was about four years old, my parents bought me Bugbite and tried to tell me it was Bumblebee. I was not yet a fan of Transformers, but I knew that wasn't Bumblebee. I didn't even have the real Bumblebee at that time.

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 October 2020 - 01:39 PM)

It would come with two soundtracks: the eighties classic and one featuring dubstep and the VAs are popular Youtubers.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 12:13 PM)

But yeah, reading it: I came off as a bit of an ass.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 11:52 AM)

I just couldn't think of worse music than disco...

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 11:35 AM)

What were you trying to imply with the mocking sarcasm, though? Nobody suggested that '80s music was any more "of it's time" than '70s music.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 11:18 AM)

I said that disco wouldn't fare much better with the same context: media is property of it's time; biases, culture and limitations are all inherent in that. Some stuff can be brought forward because of an inherently timeless nature or the simplicity with which it was made but lots of media is a time capsule of the period of when it was made.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 08:46 AM)

I'm not sure what you're trying to imply, or what you even think I said.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 October 2020 - 08:11 AM)

Yeah, cause disco would make the transition so much better...

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 October 2020 - 07:17 AM)

I feel the '80s music would be jarring when running over current-day CGI instead of well, '80s visuals.

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 October 2020 - 05:39 AM)

Not a remake, reanimated scene for scene, like that fan vid titled they were always real to me.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 October 2020 - 04:37 AM)

Because we need more remakes these days.

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 October 2020 - 01:36 AM)

Be a hoot if these Studio Series 86 toys led to Transformers The Move Reanimated like Pokemon Mewtwo Strikes Back Evolution.

@  Paladin : (20 October 2020 - 05:15 PM)

only takes three pounds to be a cereal killer.

@  Kalidor : (20 October 2020 - 04:54 PM)

5 pounds is a lot of cereal! /deadpan

@  Maximus Ambus : (20 October 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Seems the area near my work place is due to be gentrified. Electric car ports, fifty pound haircuts and five pound bowls of cereal in breakfast cafes I'll bet.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 October 2020 - 11:31 PM)

@ZakuConvoy Lumines Electric Symphony. So still halfway interesting, and it’ll play on the PS TV

@  Demovere Xeno : (19 October 2020 - 10:36 PM)

@Maximus: I paired the Battle Patrol with Ironworks and they look good together, though the Off Road Patrol would probably fit best as vehicles you're likely to find at a construction site.

@  ZakuConvoy : (19 October 2020 - 09:39 PM)

So...was it something like Tearaway or Gravity Rush or was it just a FIFA or a Madden?

@  wonko the sane? : (19 October 2020 - 08:26 PM)

Sounds like they need to clean more often.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 October 2020 - 06:51 PM)

From the depths of Walmart's backroom comes...a Playstation Vita game in 2020?

@  Telly : (19 October 2020 - 02:20 PM)

and my bow

@  Donocropolis : (19 October 2020 - 11:49 AM)

<GIMLI> And my axe! </GIMLI>

@  Donocropolis : (19 October 2020 - 11:47 AM)

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.

Actually, teaching kids about prioritizing (do you save the guy who just crashed his truck, or do you contain the fire before it spreads out of control?) could be a good thing.

God knows, enough adults have problems understanding that their mild inconvenience is less important than other peoples' immediate safety.

Granny goes in the drink. XD

Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

also, choosing between a fire rescue and a water rescue?
 
if I choose water, who is going to put out the fire?
 
why Heatwave

Heatwave turns into a boat, so he's the one who does water rescues!

But he should have sent Chase to help Jerry. Damn it, Jerry.

There was a place nearby called Hazard Alley. It was basically a recreation of urban dangers at 1/1 scale, including a city street. The idea was they'd take school kids round in groups. You'd have to show common sense and respond to things like a house catching fire.

I was one of the two picked for the latter and we had to report it via payphone on a staged internal line. We go back and-

"Did you remember to tell them grandad is upstairs?"

"Oh, we forgot!"

"Oh dear..." *pushes button on remote, bright orange light bursts from upstairs window and a horrifying scream plays*

I've played the YouTube game a couple times now and have figured out a certain pattern to it that's a bit skewed. There are three missions in all that you can participate in: A fire rescue, a water rescue, and a final mission at the firehouse (plus some smaller sidequest objectives you can do along the way to the fire and water rescues). The final mission won't become available to you until after you complete the fire and water rescues, but there's a catch. The game wants you to do the fire rescue first and the water rescue second in order to grant you the final mission. So if you choose to do the water rescue first and the fire rescue second, you have to do the water rescue again in order to progress to the final mission. Otherwise, the game will not give the final mission as an option until you've completed the water mission only after the fire mission.

 

What's more is that the sidequest options given to you en route to the water mission differ depending on whether you do the water mission before or after the fire mission.

 

If you choose the water rescue first, you're sent straight to the waterfront with Heatwave and proceed across the water in his boat mode. Then, an island appears in front of you and you're given the choices of crossing the island on dry ground to take a shortcut to the water rescue, or staying the water by having Heatwave go around the island in boat mode. From either of these options, you eventually make it to the water rescue to partake in it.

 

But when (not if, when) you do the water rescue after the fire rescue, on your way to the waterfront with Heatwave, you're given an additional set of choices before the island ones, in which you can choose to either race Blurr to get to the waterfront quicker, or to ignore Blurr's race challenge and follow Dani's test flight path to the waterfront. From either of these choices, you eventually make it to the waterfront and proceed across the water in Heatwave's boat mode. From here, the same island choices are given, which both eventually lead to the same water rescue.

 

As for the fire rescue options, they are the same no matter what order you choose. On your way to the fire, Jerry's truck is in danger. Chief and Chase are on the scene to help, but Heatwave also gives you the choice to help out as well or to proceed to the fire while the others help Jerry. Either option leads to the next set of choices. A bridge you need to cross is closed and the accumulated traffic is in your way. Your options are to either go around the traffic (even though the bridge is out) or to go back and find a different route. Either option eventually leads you to the fire rescue.

 

For the final mission, well, it's not much. You don't really do anything yourself (as in, there's no options for you to personally make after you choose to simply partake in the mission), but you still get all the credit for completing the mission even though the animation clearly showed Blades to be the one who singlehandedly took care of the threat all by himself.

Episodes I spotted clips from (spoilers!):
"Land Before Prime": fight with the dinos on Wayward Island
"Four Bots and a Baby": Don trying to jump the river on his motorcycle
"The Last of Morocco": High Tide being attacked by sea life
"Plus One": Quickshadow rescue Ernie from the fire at the gas station
"Transformations": Morocco attempting to abduct Cody
"One for the Ages": Evan and Myles evade Chase and Chief by dumping oil on the road
"The More Things Change...": Chase pursuing Jerry's truck over a cliff

When you do the water mission, Heatwave announces that the team's heading to the GroundBridge, but then they just drive down to the shore and Heatwave transforms to boat mode.

You and Heatwave are at the mainland training center before you start each mission, so the two kinda have to go through the GroundBridge first in order to begin each mission from the firehouse.
