Aw I scratched the hood of my 35th anniversary Bluestreak. Fortunately he's in robot mode a lot.

@  Sabrblade : (25 September 2020 - 07:24 PM)

No decoration could improve the wall more than Knockout himself

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 September 2020 - 05:04 PM)

The wall could use some decorating, though. Maybe a nice shelf or a portrait.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 September 2020 - 04:32 PM)

I'm laughing so hard XDDD

@  ▲ndrusi : (25 September 2020 - 02:31 PM)

He doesn't even mind this time. You know what? It's comfortable here.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 September 2020 - 02:23 PM)

AND THEN KNOCKOUT WAS IN THE WALL AGAIN XDDD

@  Bass X0 : (25 September 2020 - 01:11 PM)

is an annoying stage in Super Mario World.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 September 2020 - 02:15 PM)

Beast Era, a blonde rat called Sunsqueaker.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 September 2020 - 01:00 PM)

And then Knockout was in the wall again.

@  Sabrblade : (24 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

Knockout: "Ooh, sorry, Lord Megatron. The correct word was... 'Decepticon'."

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 September 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Knockout: *while doing a crossword puzzle* Lord Megatron, whats a ten letter word for disappointment? | Megatron: ...... Starscream.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 September 2020 - 01:20 PM)

@Bass X0 Shockwave did it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 September 2020 - 11:56 AM)

At least it's not Suntwerker.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

@  Xero Prime : (22 September 2020 - 08:52 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 September 2020 - 06:16 AM)

@  Paladin : (22 September 2020 - 05:52 AM)

@  Telly : (21 September 2020 - 06:35 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 September 2020 - 06:01 PM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 September 2020 - 04:40 PM)

Hey, new to the boards

@  RichardT1977 : (20 September 2020 - 02:29 PM)

I had an idea for a Spiral Zone/Go-Busters crossover fanfic...

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 06:35 PM)

I loved what was there, and think it's pretty ripe for "renegades" style reboot.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 03:13 PM)

It's a shame as I loved Spiral Zone, and the design from the Japanese Toyline of the same name are fantastic, I adore the monowheel motorbike.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 03:12 PM)

Hasbro doesn't seem to have any interest in doing anything with the TV show, haven't greenlit any attempt to rerelease it, and there have been approaches, so I think it may be aother one of Tonka's legal carcrashes where everyone involved owns a piece and it's not really worth anyone sticking their neck out to claim ownership.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 01:47 PM)

I feel that homages and references would be a fun way to expand the GI Joe brand, and give a little love to lines that are unlikely to be acknowledged beyond such capacity.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 01:47 PM)

I was under the impression that Bandai was more the character design aspects, not story or characters.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 12:55 PM)

Also isn't it in rights limbo, given how it's loosely based on concepts from a BanDai series much like GoBots?

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 12:52 PM)

We don't need a Spiral Zone reboot, in a decade or so we'll be living it.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 12:49 PM)

Yeah, but it would fundamentally change the base premise of both gijoe and spiral zone. It's either not the world spanning threat it was, or the zone riders are backed up by a competent force. Either way, you compromise the context of both.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:19 PM)

Akin to what was done with Matt Tracker in 2008.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:18 PM)

Again, not a PURE transplant, but an integration of ideas and concepts into the world of GI Joe.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:18 PM)

@Wonko The Cobra Overlord, with help from Dr. Mindbender and Cesspool, develops machines capable of generating a mind-controlling fog. GI Joe stalwarts Flint, Airtight, Lifeline, and Psyche-Out are joined by Colonal Courage to infiltrate these zones and disable the machines. Figures would sport hostile environment suits (Eco warriors cross with Spiral Zone) and make new versions of the mono-wheel vehicles.

@  Maximus Ambus : (19 September 2020 - 09:39 AM)

Hasbroverse.2 with bought properties: Bravestarr, Ulysses 31, Galaxy Rangers, Shadow Raiders, Manta Force, Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors, Mighty Orbots, Jem and Bigfoot and the Muscle Machines. Seamless.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 08:32 AM)

While acknoledging spiral zone would be pretty boss, I doubt they could actively integrate it into anything else: given the scale of the villains deeds.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 08:03 AM)

COPS, Spiral Zone, Shadow Strikers, Action Man, Centurions, MegaForce. They wouldn’t replicate the old lines, but simply acknowledging their existence would be nifty.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 08:01 AM)

I would love to see GI Joe become something of a “celebration of action figures”. Hasbro has SO MANY old action figure properties, and many could slot into the GI Joe umbrella with relative ease.

@  Otaku : (19 September 2020 - 12:04 AM)

G.I. Joe, CyberCOPS, and M.A.S.K. all seem like something that would work from Animated or Prime, though CyberCOPS might have been a bit trickier from Prime.

@  Sabrblade : (18 September 2020 - 11:02 PM)

Rik Alvarez originally wanted the last episode of Prime to spinoff into a new MASK reboot.

@  Otaku : (18 September 2020 - 08:19 PM)

The failed Hasbroverse reminds me how so many things could have been spun off from Transformers: Animated and (after that) Transformers: Prime.

@  ▲ndrusi : (18 September 2020 - 12:43 PM)

Requiem of the Wreckers was post-Revolution, but it was also, you know, a single issue.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 September 2020 - 11:06 AM)

But Roche didn't have a series to keep out from the crossovers since Sins of the Wreckers was before Revolution.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 September 2020 - 11:01 AM)

Oh wait, that post said Roche, not Barber.

@  Rycochet : (18 September 2020 - 10:46 AM)

And then seemed surprised nobody particlarly wanted it.

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.

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.
