@  wonko the sane? : (22 September 2018 - 01:53 PM)

So apparently some models of air-conditioner are on trays inside the case, so they can be removed for easy access to the internals. I did not know that two hours ago: and have since cleaned three. It's been a learning kind of day.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 September 2018 - 09:15 AM)

There's probably been a Pokedex-themed 3DS cover.

@  Noideaforaname : (21 September 2018 - 04:34 PM)

I still got that Pikachu Edition Gameboy Color from back in the day. Yellow and Blue and with Pikachu, Jigglypuff and Togepi on the screen.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 September 2018 - 04:30 PM)

Quote of the day: I either need bourbon or aspirin, and I'm pretty sure the liquor cabinet is closer than the medicine chest.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 September 2018 - 02:38 PM)

I don't recall any Pokedex themed DS or Game Boy, but plenty of Pokemon-themed ones. My favourite, and the one I've got myself, was the Pokemon Red/Blue themed 3DS with the swappable faceplates that came out around the time the original games were made available via digital download

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 September 2018 - 02:30 PM)

I'm fairly certain Nintendo has done Pokéball red and white, but I don't know about specific Pokédex colors.

@  Paladin : (21 September 2018 - 11:10 AM)

random thought: has Nintendo ever made a 3DS that looks like a Pokedex? because that seems like a GOLDMINE waiting to happen...

@  Nevermore : (21 September 2018 - 03:23 AM)

Wiigii! Titans Return Grotusque for only 60 Euros (actually 70 but I somehow had an eBay gift card for reasons that escape me) with free shipping from within my own country!

@  Whirl Maximus : (21 September 2018 - 03:02 AM)

That was the plan for Predators too with the Super Predators.

@  Waspinator : (21 September 2018 - 01:46 AM)

So, apparently in the new Predator movie, the Predators don't hunt us for honor or the challenge or anything like that, but because they're stealing human DNA to modify themselves. Congrats Hollywood, on making a monster far less cool and scary.

@  Pennpenn : (20 September 2018 - 08:46 AM)

I only started playing it recently so I don't know what it was like before. Actually surprised they haven't finished the story yet. Then again, unless they introduce another world it's pretty much just Maleficent and whatever the Foretellers are playing at left.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 September 2018 - 08:30 AM)

Geeze.. I reloaded up Kingdom Hearts X for the first time in a long time. That game has massivily inflated from when I played it when it first launced in the US.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 09:07 AM)

It's an annoying thing to have happen in any game. I'm hoping they actually finish releasing all the story mode parts before 3 comes out.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 06:24 AM)

Ahh. Hadn't played that in a long time.. Since before the PVP I think.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 04:33 AM)

Kingdom Hearts Union Cross. Specifically the PVP fights.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 04:31 AM)

What game PennPenn

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 03:13 AM)

Man, I love it when you've got limited attempts at something in a game, said game crashes at the end of the thing, so you lose the attempt but don't get any credit.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 08:44 PM)

I know. I'm back to the classic purple for the first time since the comic theme was introduced.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 08:32 PM)

Alright thanks, gonna be weird without the speech bubble boxes but I'll manage.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 07:59 PM)

Nope, ongoing problem for a bunch of us. The mods know, so... just hunker down and wait. In the mean time: changing themes will sort it out for a bit. Only the comic theme is affected.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 05:36 PM)

Is something going on? I'm missing the buttons to go to the newest post and there's no banner for the forum list, it just says "logo" in the corner.

Fix it, like, found a working power adaptor, or fix it like: there was saudering involved.

@  Lazy Garou : (11 September 2018 - 11:58 AM)

Sometimes I wonder if they specifically do this sort of thing (leaks, small foreign market early showings) in order to remove adult fans from the viewership when the show airs in the U.S.  There are cases of advertisers wanting to keep certain demos away (i.e. cartoons that have been cancelled because too many girls were watching an ostensibly boys' show), after all.

It's never a good sign when a CMC episode's cold open ends without us getting into the plot yet. Get on with it.

Hopefully the pacing ends up fine. I'm just bracing for it.

Dvandom - Today at 11:35 AM

Well, isn't the plot "we should go to school here?"

Oh great. Their clever plan is to fake backsliding.

Okay, at least they all have their own annoying plans.

It's clear why they never got acting cutie marks.

FnuAw - Today at 11:42 AM

But really now, the school's security is atrocious.

Neighsay did nothing wrong.

Bad cactus packaging.

Hi Copper.

How does one ordinarily package a cactus? Bicycle helmets seem somewhat impractical as a general solution....

I was close in my prediction...tutors rather than TAs.

Scavenger - Today at 12:00 PM

but they wanted to go to school to play hoof ball

and why does the broom closet have a window...front facing no less...

SO MANY QUESTIONS!!!

FnuAw - Today at 12:01 PM

This school will never make it.

Copper Bezel - Today at 12:02 PM

They were so much better off with having actual lessons with information in X ]

Dvandom - Today at 12:03 PM

Well, they've been in that school for 8 years now, and were covering graduate level physics a couple of years ago, so....

Scavenger - Today at 12:04 PM

so they were more warehousing them?

FnuAw - Today at 12:07 PM

Wait til Cheerilee finds out she's free of them.

Scavenger - Today at 12:09 PM

will likely be after school stuff for them... Can't see Twilight letting them not do math

FnuAw - Today at 12:13 PM

Don't you crush Cheerilee's dreams like that.

Dvandom - Today at 12:20 PM

Guess that's it for today. Later.

FnuAw - Today at 12:21 PM

I guess so. I'm not sure there's much to talk about with this one.

 

Shadewing - Today at 12:24 PM
yeah it was a rather straight forward and predictable episode

Was it really a good idea to make a reformed villain (who still has issues with abusing magic!) As a guidance councillor? She clearly still has a mean streak in her.

Yeah, best scene in a mediocre episode. If twilight had said, right from the start, that the CMC were qualified to teach but couldn't because they hadn't finished their existing formal schooling, it woul have stopped the entire episode and made the crusaders much more serious about cherilee's classes.

And seriously, what was with posey glow? I now have sore teeth and an inescapable feeling of dread.

Starlight's not mean. A little twisted, but certainly not cruel; she wasn't impressed with the evil scheme because it hurt anypony. She's also uniquely non-judgemental and empathetic.

 

And from what we saw of the classes in this episode, she's the only one whose role does make sense. I don't understand how they got from having a curriculum when they were operating under the board to, uh, this.


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?

There are apparently spoilers regarding her reappearing later which I think is damping speculation on what her deal might be, since some folks know slightly more and don't want to ruin it whatever it is.
