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)

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.

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)

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

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.

Nah, it's after Elonia's been munched.

Despite Q'b and Nikomi being shown with them just beforehand, only Prim and Dragon-Guy-Who's-Not-Maur-Apparently are shown getting vaporised on panel, so I guess that's the justification for the others surviving.

Also, the red guy is a Marvel Spaceknight, Plor the Pulsar! (And the whole thing is an homage to the 1983 Rom Annual.)

Ooo. Season 1 Megatron and Transmetal 2 Megatron are separate individuals. I dig the (presumably unintentional) parallel with Primal and Optimal from Beast Wars: Uprising.

Oh, and hahaha! Meanwhile over in OP #20, Thunderhoof and Steeljaw are Maximals just as they were Maximals in Uprising continuity!

Loved Roms little one shot at the end there.

I wonder if well get a focus on each of the expanded universe groups - joes, action man, visionaries, micronauts and Mask.

Yeah, we're getting backup strips for a bunch of the franchises. Joe and Micronauts are confirmed, I believe, and Action Man seems like a safe bet given how much Barber loves him. I wouldn't be surprised if MASK is skipped, considering the group doesn't actually exist anymore in-universe.

Although on that note, a four-page backup strip and a two-page interview really doesn't feel like much in terms of justifying the $5 cover price, especially when we got a four-page backup in every First Strike issue for a standard $4 price...

Here's my problem though. why? Why Maximals? The Autobot/Decepticon alliance appears to have nothing that can stop an evil planet, so why bother? It would be one thing if the Maximals were running interference against Brainstorm-level weaponry or an army of Phase Sixers but instead it seems like everyone is just fighting to fight.

Running interference so the Alliance doesn't have time to figure out how to stop Unicron makes sense. And it implies outright that there is a way to stop Unicron. Also with Milne on art it gets to be visually interesting and impressive. That being said it isn't any less of a cliche'd means to shift the focus to Barber's pet characters for the big finale while everyone else gets cameo'd to death.

 

As for your spoiler: I didn't realize until I saw that panel that he never used the claws that way in the show. Which is weird considering how creative the writers usually were with kibble.

It's real weird that a Marvel Spaceknight appears in the backup (Plor, the red guy). It's part of the Rom Annual #2 homage, obviously, but I guess IDW must figure the lack of name and redesign gives them plausible deniability. (That, or Ryall and Messina snuck it in without anyone realising who it was.)

And really... its PLOR. Dude showed up in literally 1 story. Certainly easier to get away with Plor than Starshine or Terminator.
