The only thing we've learned so far is that 1 out of 10 doesn't really seem to mind that much.

People forget the whole phrase. It's "Great minds thing alike, but fools rarely differ."

@  Nevermore : (21 February 2019 - 08:49 PM)

The German version is very straightforward: "Two idiots, one idea."

@  Nevermore : (21 February 2019 - 08:49 PM)

English: "Great minds think alike".

@  Nevermore : (21 February 2019 - 08:49 PM)

Here's an example of a phrase that's charmingly positive in English but self-deprecating in German:

Turns out the basic figures in the transformers siege line are basically minicons, and my sister is back in the hospital for another psychotic break. It's been an emotional day, and it's not even 1 pm yet.

@  Pennpenn : (21 February 2019 - 12:27 AM)

Maybe, or maybe it'd be more like wood? Y'know, bashing each other with planks.

@  Ashley : (21 February 2019 - 12:23 AM)

Wouldn't pillow fights be like slapping each other with meat?

@  MEDdMI : (20 February 2019 - 11:14 PM)

@  Nevermore : (20 February 2019 - 08:18 PM)

Also, do Softmus Prime and Slumblebee engage in pillow fights?

@  Nevermore : (20 February 2019 - 08:16 PM)


@  MEDdMI : (20 February 2019 - 08:34 AM)

@Penn Megadown, maybe?

Who gives the orders in cyberwarfare?

@  Pennpenn : (20 February 2019 - 03:16 AM)

I wonder what Megatron would end up in that context?

@  Sabrblade : (19 February 2019 - 09:21 PM)

It's not "Optiplush"... it's "Softimus Prime"

@  Ashley : (19 February 2019 - 08:19 PM)

I've got the two plushes from the first movie, they're great

@  Shrug : (19 February 2019 - 08:00 PM)

Still have mine, although Optiplush Prime is kind of discolored

@  Shrug : (19 February 2019 - 07:59 PM)

They came out around the time of the first movie with the big merch push, but they were distinctly G1 and everything else wasnt, IIRC

@  Trpodeca : (19 February 2019 - 04:51 PM)

Take another shot Wonko.

@  Trpodeca : (19 February 2019 - 04:51 PM)

prime the lost season

@  wonko the sane? : (19 February 2019 - 01:41 PM)

I did not even know those things were a thing. I guess they didn't do very well cause they didn't make more of them.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 February 2019 - 01:25 PM)

Pfft, Hasbro did that 12 years ago with Slumblebee and Optiplush Prime

@  Xellos : (19 February 2019 - 12:37 PM)

Well, this past Christmas I did see licensed plush Transformers that went from their robot to vehicle mode by turning inside out just like popples.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 February 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Why DIDN'T transformers make plushes ala popples?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Design in mixed media and make him out of actual flannel.

@  Lancer : (18 February 2019 - 09:24 PM)

Make his fur a red and black flannel pattern

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:10 PM)

Bonus points if you can work in a red and black flannel pattern on his chest plate.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:09 PM)

Might as well make it cliched. Lumberjack moose male and aristocratic deer female.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2019 - 08:16 PM)

Or their aristocratic deer.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2019 - 08:10 PM)

Thinking of making a pair of moose Transformer OCs, male and female. Thier a lovey dovy pair of lumberjacks

@  Paladin : (18 February 2019 - 06:56 PM)

they also have NOTORIOUSLY poor protection on their servers. do NOT keep a credit card on file there.

@  Telly : (18 February 2019 - 04:48 PM)

i just checked my past tfsource orders, and theres no sales tax charge

@  Arazyr : (18 February 2019 - 11:16 AM)

They haven't (yet, at least) on the stuff I currently have in my Stack. Haven't had them ship anything for a while, though, so I don't know if they will when I do...

@  Benbot : (18 February 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Does TFSource charge sales tax?

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:47 AM)

That's because, once upon a time, the people whom owned the animals weren't the people whom butchered them. So the pig was owned by a saxon who spoke english, but butchered by a french speaker. So a pig got cut up into PORC chops.

@  unluckiness : (18 February 2019 - 03:25 AM)

Hank Pym<<<< Hank Hill

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 February 2019 - 01:28 AM)

In that case, I don't see anything wrong with English speakers calling it what it is in English. Even though we technically use the French words for what comes out of it. "Beef", "pork"...

@  Bass X0 : (17 February 2019 - 02:04 PM)

I’d like a Siege Thundercracker who has his regular blue colors Cybertronian jet mode which transforms into a robot mode with his Action Master colors. Looks like it could be possible.

Surprised there is no thread for this game yet.


I picked it up this weekend, and good lord is it gorgeous.



I'm only like 4-5 scenes into the game, and I'm really digging it, it's basically a Choose your own adventure book brought to the gaming sphere.


I am digging it.

Be me playing as an android. Tried to open door. Failed at opening door. ...I don't think this uprising is going to happen, guys...

If I had a bit for every time you made me feel worthless, I'd be worth something by now.

I've been watching the Super Best Friends play it and it's embarrassingly bad just like all Cage's other work. He takes an interesting sci-fi concept, completely does nothing with it, and turns it into a weird, offensive race metaphor that just co-opts language and quotes from African-American struggles. The writing is just straight-up dumb too. There's a bit where the rebel robot goes around freeing his fellow robots, but the way he does it seems to imply he's literally reprogramming them. Is that even free will? The game sure doesn't seem to care about explaining it.

PM me if you're bored!

I have only been playing for about three hours, but I have some thoughts...


From a story perspective I think it was a mistake to give them sapient emotions right from the start. There is no gradual process for them to evolve giving justification for the other characters in the story to still think of them as programmed machines instead of just ignoring them as free thinking agents.


From an economic standpoint it seems like an insanely horrible idea to program your machines to feel pain, emotions, self identity and sense of preservation. The first android we are introduced to went berserk and killed people when it found out it was going to be replaced with a better model and didn't want to be killed. Maybe you want to take it a step down from that level of A.I. programming. It was like when they went crazy with phone sizes and they were making them to small so they had to go back to a size slighter larger. 


And, oh my gosh, why wouldn't you deactivate them before throwing them into a junk yard so they are not trying to crawl back out like a pit of zombies screaming that they don't want to die? At least it will save on the manpower of needing someone there with a shovel to constantly push them back into the pit. Someone needs to teach them how to recycle...

If I had a bit for every time you made me feel worthless, I'd be worth something by now.

Welcome to a David Cage game.

The name also seems very misleading. "Becoming human" implies a process occurring over time. They seem pretty much human right now, only polite ones. I don't see how they can become anymore human at this point of the game.


Also, why would the police department treat death by androids as murder investigations? They are machines, equipment, more likely it would be treated as defective, or at least glitched, that would be deemed an accident. I image if this continued there would be a total recall of the model of android rather then just arresting the offending ones.


Further more, why would an android need to be interrogated rather then just being deactivated and having it's memory banks searched? Why create a machine that law enforcement have to reason with and persuade to get information out of it? And why create a machine that can feel stress to the point it can chose to self-destruct? And how come I haven't seen any other android that is clearly under stress use this self-destruct feature? Like all those androids in the zombie pit screaming to be killed?

If I had a bit for every time you made me feel worthless, I'd be worth something by now.

Congrats Soft Snow.  You've put more thought into this game then David Cage did.


Ironbite-I'd stop thinking about it right now.
