@  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.

cleaning up, mostly.but the little plastic piece where the power cable hooked up was broken. That I managed to put back together.

So he also has White Castle-like qualities?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 September 2018 - 02:23 PM)

@  RichardT1977 : (11 September 2018 - 01:22 PM)

Overlord has some castle-like qualities to him

@  wonko the sane? : (11 September 2018 - 12:15 PM)

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

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

There's been consistently good sc-fi flicks; most just fly under the radar as lower-budget or indie pictures

If you can forget about that garbage Ghost in the Shell feature...

@  Steevy Maximus : (10 September 2018 - 09:27 PM)

Upgrade is a GREAT dark sci fi throwback film. Kind of feels like the genre has been nailing some good stuff after a LONG time of drek

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (10 September 2018 - 01:59 PM)

Memorandum to all: the word "siege" is spelled with the "i" before the "e".

Funny thing is, I think the pocket edition graphics give the game more personality.

@  MEDdMI : (06 September 2018 - 11:10 PM)

Final Finception

@  Waspinator : (06 September 2018 - 10:29 PM)

They've made a PS4 version of Final Fantasy 15 Pocket Edition. For those keeping score, it's the PS4 version of a smartphone version of a PS4 game.

@  wonko the sane? : (05 September 2018 - 09:20 PM)

Ah HA! turns out the trick to installing the rift software was to run it as an admin. Stupid windows 10.

@  wonko the sane? : (05 September 2018 - 04:58 PM)

Awright! I got the display port working! Which means I can now connect my occulus rift!

That's the most expensive "normal" TF ever, isn't it? The only ones with higher MSRP were pack-ins with laserdisc players or cars.

Wow; what I paid for the TTM-exclusive Big Powered GV recolour doesn't even scratch that.

I'm actually legitimately sad to hear that price; my spending on TFs has gone down so much that I could get away with buying it, but I don't know that I could ever quite feel that it was justified .

Very surprising list.

Wreck-Gar and Nemesis are regular releases in Japan.

Unicron of Light, presumably, mass release.

The only thing not surprising is BW Megatron's price. I expected he'd be $300. A Masterpiece that looks to be a bit taller than MP-10, has an intricate transformation, beautiful paintrled finish throughout, detailed sculpt, a good number of accessories, voice AND light features.

Yeah he never going to be less than something higher than $250.

One thing to consider with Megatron is that Japanese sites such as Amazon and HLJ will be offering discounts of 20% or more.

So that will drop his price by $60 or so.

Yeah but they offer the same discount for other products so the price is still proportionately nuts.

If you look at it as all the other stuff you could get for the same amount. Megs costs more than all but the most expensive of the SOC lineup and that's nuts. You could get old MP Optimus and a couple of cars to cram into his trailer. You could buy almost half of POTP. Hell, you can buy nearly three of the Primals they're reissuing alongside him.

So if TakaraTomy is doing the exclusive PotP stuff, are they going to do Blast Off too? Or will the three celebrating the Prime Trilogy not see a release. Since they only got the last chapter? Blast Off just seems extraneous. But they are getting Skrapnel, so...

Which Amazon will make up for with their one(expensive) option for international shipping.

 

In this case, I think I'm better off sticking to HLJ and AmiAmi.


Being part of any fandom is fundamentally embarassing.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

That's exactly what I thought.  They've ratcheted right into SoC pricing.  Testing that with a BW release seems kind of nuts.
