@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:51 PM)

Not to be confused with Leader I

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

He was Leader Uno

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

He was the OTHER Leader 1

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 March 2020 - 06:29 PM)

Or Sideways.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 March 2020 - 05:26 PM)

On the other hand, this is Armada we're talking about. It could have actually been Metroplex.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 March 2020 - 11:08 PM)

Oh yeah, that was Fort Max. My bad.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 March 2020 - 03:47 PM)

Shame he wasn't around more. He seemed like such a jolly, happy soul.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 02:16 PM)

No, he was definitely Metroplex. You could tell because he was in Metroplex's distinctive red and green coloration.

@  Paladin : (27 March 2020 - 02:11 PM)

that was Leader-1. or possibly Jolt. maybe Grindor...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 01:57 PM)

Metroplex was in Armada, in a flashback. He was the same size as everybody else. I thought that was the joke.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (27 March 2020 - 12:39 PM)

@Rodimus Supreme: Gah! You are right! How'd I get that mixed up? x.x;

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 March 2020 - 12:14 PM)

There is no Metroplex. Only Zuul.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:13 AM)

@Tm_Silverclaw: There is no Armada Metroplex, he was in Cybertron.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:12 AM)

And they'd be better off just retooling Metroplex and Fortress Maximus to be somewhat more accurate and changing/adding parts for interaction with later play gimmicks.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:11 AM)

I honestly would prefer that for scale purposes.

@  Cyoti : (27 March 2020 - 11:07 AM)

They can redo all the CW combiners as Titan Class figures like Predaking/Devastator.

@  Dekafox : (27 March 2020 - 07:52 AM)

They could just redo Metroplex again too. Especially if it's going to be S3 based. They could also do another Primus to go with the coming Unicron.

@  OverDrive73 : (26 March 2020 - 10:56 PM)

If anyone is bored, or interested... I just added the last chapter to my fanfic comic in Allspark Pictures

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 March 2020 - 10:54 PM)

And no.. We could always get Titan Class Superion.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 March 2020 - 10:53 PM)

We need Titan Class Transformers Armada Metroplex.

@  Telly : (26 March 2020 - 08:39 PM)

ill be surprised if scorpy isnt the last titan

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 March 2020 - 05:57 PM)

Too bad a new character titan class figure is pretty much an impossibility.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 March 2020 - 05:56 PM)

I want a titan class, really good looking bucket wheel excavator. Like Cybertron Metroplex was supposed to be but didn't quite pull off.

Studio Series 100 Titan Class Driller.

@  CORVUS : (22 March 2020 - 11:13 PM)

Ugh, Chinese. Typo-city.

@  CORVUS : (22 March 2020 - 11:11 PM)

Rodimus, you're just flat-out wrong. Trump eliminated the Pandemic Response Team. Trump was advised in January that this could be serious, and he didn't listen. Trump spent weeks downplaying COVID-19 by implying it was a hoax, and then that it was just a type of flu. He was late to close down travel from China, and by the time he closed down air-travel to the EU, that was also too late. He has refused to take responsibility for removing the pandemic response team, even though he basically bragged about it some months before. He's also prematurely talked up treatments using chlorquinine that have not been properly vetted as yet, and he keeps calling COVID-19 the "Chinense virus" because he can't help but be a jerk. Face facts: Trump is an incompetent bungler. Period. Full-stop.

I was actually talking with some friends the other day that a Dreamcast Classic would leave me watering at the mouth.

Tho realistically any VMU functionality would have to be re-examined.

Or they could skip the vmu functionality altogether. It was never very well used or implemented from what I remember anyway.

 

Edit: I missed a word and it changed the meaning of the sentence.

Some games had some unique functions...but it was NEVER a necessity for any game I can recall.  In fact, I recall some Xbox 360 ports of games still used the same old icons.

 

The big upside with this announcement is that it seems Sega is FINALLY ditching AtGames for this release.  That alone probably makes this worth being interested in.

Ah heh heh...About AtGames involvement...

 

https://twitter.com/...158110837911552

 

So...that makes this a wait and see at best.

 

Still, hopefully, Alien Soldier, Monster World 4, Gunstar Heroes, Landstalker, Thunder Force 4, M.U.S.H.A.,, Rocket Knight Adventures, and maybe even Pulseman get added to the more regular faces of these Genesis Collections.

 

Say what you will about AtGame's stuff, but they DO include a LOT of games with their products.  We might get more games...just maybe not in a really slick package (and maybe with emulation problems).

 

And...count me in for a Sega Saturn Mini (hopefully done by a more competent company).  At the very least, that would make some of those games PLAYABLE again, if they could make an emulator that would work with the system.

The problem with this is they've released a million megadrive/genesis clones already at the low end of the market and devalued the brand. They should have skipped to the Saturn or Dreamcast as they wouldn't be retreads at least.

Eh I didn't grow up with a Genesis, or knew anyone who had one, so this is looking really good to me.

I have a Saturn. A classic wouldn't be bad, but like some of the games I'd want are light gun games, and well they won't really work for this kinda thing.

I was on the SNES side of that console war. But I did know some people who had a Genesis. I've also gotten several Genesis collections. Mario and Sonic have long since buried the hatchet. So I got this tonight.

Street Fighter is better on the SNES. Better graphics, better sound...don't have to buy a separate six-button controller to play it right. But it wasn't terrible. I don't like pressing start to choose between punches and kicks, but it was as terrible as I feared either.

Does anyone know if you really need to have played any of the other Phantasy Star games before playing IV? I have access to II, III and IV, But I do not have access to I. If it's like Final Fantasy where you can play them in any order and it doesn't matter because they're all different, great. I'll just dive right into IV. Just wanna make sure first, though.

All in all, it's a nice little system. Though I do think I made the right decision as a kid in choosing the SNES. While I have grown to have a love for several Sega games, I think now I can be totally objective in saying SNES was still better.

It's kinda like with Dragon Quest.  There's a few references to past games here and there, but you don't really NEED to play the other 3 in order to understand the story for anything.

Thanks. Looks like I'll be starting IV soon then.

Also forgot to say earlier, I was not expecting Megaman on this, but holy crap it has Megaman! And it is glorious!

I also like that you can get back to the main menu holdinggthe start button on the controller instead of getting up and pressing the reset on the console. The controller cord is also nice and lengthy.

Hope Nintendo learns from this for the N64 mini.
