Current status of my collection room in my new, still-under-construction apartment:

@  wonko the sane? : (21 June 2018 - 05:31 PM)

Depends on whether or not the motive engines for the vehicle mode are the same as the robot mode. Cause we know they use energon for everything.

@  Bass X0 : (21 June 2018 - 05:17 PM)

I was thinking today if Transformers would carry the fuel for their alternate mode in their robot mode? They'd have to, right?

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 June 2018 - 01:28 PM)

I mean, the clear meta reason is so non-Transformers don't die horribly on their ships, but that's not as fun to speculate about.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 June 2018 - 10:43 AM)

There's also lots of chemical reactions which only precipite with oxygen.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 June 2018 - 09:27 AM)

Oxygen is obviously a native gas on cybertron and also let’s the equipment “breath” so to speak.

@  Cybersnark : (21 June 2018 - 08:47 AM)

@Wonko; Yeah, but why oxygen? There are a lot of non-flammable gasses they could've used. And we've seen TFs using radio to communicate in vacuum.

@  Robowang : (21 June 2018 - 08:29 AM)

As the Cream of Wheat glugged forth from his meatus, his mind focused on only one thing: Mommy loved him so.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 June 2018 - 08:17 AM)

there's lots you can't do in vaccuum. The least of which is audio communication.

@  Cybersnark : (21 June 2018 - 08:04 AM)

Though that begs the question of why a robotic species would keep their ships pressurized with oxygen in the first place.

@  Pennpenn : (21 June 2018 - 07:29 AM)

Guess it's just me playing FTL recently. Opening a few doors out to the void is a good way to deal with fires and rude visitors.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 June 2018 - 07:14 AM)

Plus it depends on what part of the ship, can’t easily vent an interior area.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 June 2018 - 06:34 AM)

depends on what's wrong. If you need to get something out and away, would also need to have started in a pressurised space to begin with. If you just want to vent extra heat: it wouldn't work as well as vaccuum is an insulator.

@  Pennpenn : (21 June 2018 - 03:12 AM)

If they're in space wouldn't it make more sense just to vent the area affected to vacuum?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 June 2018 - 07:16 PM)

I mean the foam was dangerous, but in space they probably put out the fires, then wore the equivalent of a hazmat suit to clean up.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 June 2018 - 04:38 PM)

Only on special occassions.

@  Paladin : (20 June 2018 - 03:50 PM)

you don't?

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 June 2018 - 02:17 PM)

I mean, we don't usually use asbestos on our souls.....

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 June 2018 - 10:11 AM)

*looks at asbestos" Yep... Cause we've never used something harmful as a fire retardant. x.x;

@  unluckiness : (20 June 2018 - 06:32 AM)

fire retardant foam is so powerful it can extinguish even sparks

@  Pennpenn : (20 June 2018 - 05:23 AM)

I mean, this is a species that can be disabled (possibly fatally after a while?) by flame retardant foam, so yeah.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 June 2018 - 01:28 AM)

Transformers are exactly as resilient as the plot needs them to be, so who knows, it could be lethal today.

@  RichardT1977 : (19 June 2018 - 08:50 PM)

Which is why Marvel Megatron was interested in Dr. Biggles-Jones' railgun design and had it grafted onto his G2 tank mode.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 June 2018 - 08:43 PM)

Doesn't really matter what transformers are made of. If you send a 10 pound ball of metal flying at a good enough velocity, you will do damage.

@  Soft Snow : (19 June 2018 - 05:53 PM)

A regular cannon that shoots cannon balls and does nothing to other transformers because they are robots but would put a mean whole in the side of your wooden boat...

megatron but he turns into a ford fusion with a cannon badly welded onto the roof

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 June 2018 - 02:22 PM)

My Little Fusion Cannon: Friendship Through Tyranny.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 June 2018 - 02:01 PM)

was that supposed to sound sexual

@  wonko the sane? : (19 June 2018 - 01:55 PM)

I'm pretty sure that megatrons cannon is his best friend, so that friendship is magic stuff won't work.

@  MEDdMI : (19 June 2018 - 01:16 PM)

And then the magic ponies force everyone to be friends FOREVERRRRRRR

@  wonko the sane? : (19 June 2018 - 12:06 PM)

Or... megatron just goes to war against skynet cause he can't stand the competition.

So E3 has come and all the big press conferences are done. So now we have the annual thread where we get to vote on which company impressed us the most! Although you can easily say that we the gamers are the winners of E3, as we have all this gaming goodness coming to us, this thread isn't about that. We are just asking who had the best showing this year. So cast your vote! Who won E3 2018!

I give it to MS this year, good pacing, good games, some pretty cool surprises. 

 

Sony and Nintendo both had awful pacing.

 

Ubisoft was good but unspectacular, same with Bethesda (I'm not going to get excited for a pair of logos that are probably 2-3+ years out at least)

 

PC show I only perused but seemed solid, but I'm not really huge into PC gaming at the moment.

 

EA was EA.

Nintendo had interesting games out this year. Sony had a lot of news I was waiting for and quite a few games that piqued my interest, but probably could have been paced better. Bethesda and Ubisoft were decent. Square Enix had some interesting stuff but totally dropped the ball on even a mention of FF VII, which after how many years and they haven't told us a whole hell of a lot? They need to get on that! Microsoft had only one first-party game out this year. Everything else was either next year or third-party non-exclusives. I just can't let them get by with that.

So I'm going to have to go with Nintendo.

At this point, it's safe to say FFVII is never coming, and the entire promise was a hollow lie to move units.

 

FFVII has become the new Duke Nukem Forever.

I was swinging towards MS, but Silverclaw nailed it. Nintendo with them showing more stuff coming up in the now and near future does feel better than everything nearly being three quarters or more out that could be delayed again and again. Having some good surprise drops like they did made up for a somewhat lacking in Metroid Prime 4 showing.

Sony May have some fine looking games but damn what was that with the music?! And really little exclusive announcements of anything that we didn’t already know about.

Ubisoft did good and their collaborations with Nintendo is cool. But I’ve never been big into their franchises.

EA..... well they used Battlefront 2 as a learning experience, but other than Anthem looking cool, was EA.

Bethesda has a good slate of things to look forward to but not anything really for me.

FFVII has become the new Duke Nukem Forever.

 

 

I think it's coming, but expect more after KH3 is out and Nomura's done with that project. I mean, I spectacularly do not care about FF7 so it's not a big deal for me.

 

Anyway I enjoyed Nintendo's the most but Microsoft definitely showed off the coolest new PS4 games.

 

All in all, a pretty quiet E3. Good for my wallet.

I went with Bethesda.

 

All the new games that are coming out this year:

 

Rage 2,  Prey Mooncrash, Fallout 76, and a New Mobile, PC, VR, Console Cross play Elder Scrolls game! Rage 2 looks like a great solid FPS game that wasn't on my radar until I saw it at the conference. The Mooncrash dlc sounds like a really fun game mode to play, so much that I want to get the game just for it! Fallout 76 is my game of the show. An awesome Fallout game that I can play co-op with my brother sounds like an epic game to me! I will upgrade my PC to play this game! I like the ambitious idea of the Mobile cross play Elder scrolls game. I want to see how well that works, especially for a F2P game.

 

 

and Next year:

 

Doom Eternal looks like a excellent sequel to a great FPS game! I can't wait to see more this fall. Wolfenstein Youngblood, a Co-op FPS game based in the 80s of this alt world, sign me up!

 

 

And the games for the year after that:

 

New IP called Starfield and Elder Scrolls 6!

 

 

They had a lot of Anti Nazi stuff, great humor at Walmart leaking their big game, and some wonderful self-deprecating humor about them porting Skyrim to everything. Plus they had my Game of the show, Fallout 76! They just had a great E3 showing this year, while the Big Three kind of faltered.

 

Microsoft showed off a ton of multi-platform games while pushing all of their exclusives to next year releases, possibly for the Xbox Scarlett. 

 

Sony had weird music throughout their conference, but only showed us 8 or so games, that while neat, weren't that great. Although I do want to get that Resident Evil 2 remake. 

 

Nintendo really didn't bring anything this year so they spent twenty minutes talking about Smash Bros Ultimate and a new Mario Party to get friends upset at friends.

 

Ubisoft had a few good things, Starlink with Starfox, AC being a straight up brawler set in Ancient Greece, the Division 2 looking like they learned a lot from the first one, but another game to get next year.

 

EA spent way too much time on sports, but Unravel 2 being released the day of the conference was awesome and Anthem looks great to me so far. Definitely want to check that out next year too. 

 

Square Enix didn't bring much to the table but at least we got some more Dragon Quest 11 details! I would have loved to get some info on Dragon Quest Builders 2 or the FF7 remake.

 

 

So my order for this year's E3 Conference showings:

 

Bethesda

Microsoft

Sony

Ubisoft

EA

Nintendo

Square Enix

PC

The Call of Cthulhu trailer gives me hope for Cyinide Studio getting it right:



Personally I don't care about CoC, but given their next project is a Paraoia RPG based video game, I'm glad they seem to get the tone right.

IMHO, Nintendo won this hands down.  Even though some games were a no show (like Metroid Prime 4 and Yoshi), they did reveal some new games that got my interest, like Super Mario Party (which I am liking since it seems to be returning to the gameplay of Mario Party games we know and love) and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (come on, every character returning, plus Inkling, Ridley, and even Daisy?  This could be the Smash to end all Smashes).
