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)

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

So, "I before E, except after Siege"? :D

@  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.

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!

@  RichardT1977 : (03 September 2018 - 07:11 PM)

Or just a set of arms and shoulder cannons that combined Legends Godbomber with CW Optimus.

@  RichardT1977 : (03 September 2018 - 07:10 PM)

I still wish someone would make an upgrade kit for Combiner Wars Optimus that transformed from a trailer to a set of limbs with Powermaster shoulder cannons...

@  NotVeryKnightly : (03 September 2018 - 09:48 AM)

I read that as "Basilisky" for some reason.

So the section on Arms Micron Ratchet claims, per TFWiki (excuse the random blue text, copying and pasting from the page does that to ya):

 

As part of the "Arms Micron" gimmick, six 5mm peg-hole attachment points have been glued onto him (as opposed to having existing parts specifically retooled to include them like many other toys in the line) on his vehicle mode roof, doors, and side-panels, which respectively end up on his legs, forearms, and shoulders.

 

Has anyone actually broken these supposed seals or...? 'Cause I've never seen or heard anything about this.

Use the lightswitch button on the top left corner before pasting or choose "paste as plain text".

Apparently the 5 mm ports on Arms Micron Ratchet are glued on to his various vehicle mode parts instead of being remolded like every other AM figure, according to the section I quoted from TFWiki, wanted to know if that was true and if someone broke the glue seals on those parts.

 

Should've actually clarified from the start, I know.

I don't think very many people actually bought AM Ratchet and would be able to check, because... yeah:

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.

It does look like the ports are a different plastic than the pieces they're attached to, so "glued on" seems like the fair conclusion at least.

Though I'm not sure why anybody would buy it to remove them when Hasbro Ratchet is an option.

I think I should've been more clear about my question. The TFWiki section I quoted stated that the ports were glued in, I was wondering how that glue's held up over time or if that had worn out over the six years since his release.

so yeah i'm reviving this

 

So, these two guys, I know their descriptions mention "electronic lights and sounds", but to the people who have both these and the original figures, are the electronics identical to their original, non-black deco versions or are they entirely new?

They're identical, unless there's some extra sounds hidden in there that I haven't unlocked.
