I was using my account on another comptuer, and oddly it seemed to default to $US rather than converting it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 January 2020 - 02:02 PM)

You should be able to set eBay to display in your local currency, although personally I like to know the actual currency the item is listed in so I know if I need to account for forex fees or not

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:34 AM)

I'd also like to take the opportunity to say I despise Ebay for showing the list prices in US money.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:23 AM)

Well there is an overpriced limited edition, but I don't want to pay that much money for it.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:21 AM)

Well great. The one Usagi Yojimbo volume I don't have and it's out of stock.

I both love and hate that the Alien franchise seems to have had more luck finding a niche as a line of children's toys than it has at producing worthwhile films.

@  Donocropolis : (17 January 2020 - 06:35 AM)

I've seen them on the shelves at Walmart. They're pretty great looking retro Aliens toys. https://www.walmart....-Vary/934039489

@  fourteenwings : (17 January 2020 - 01:11 AM)

IIRC somebody on here mentioned an unbranded Alien toy a couple of weeks ago? It seems like it was actually part of a collection for the Alien movie series by Lanard. Mattel's making some stuff too.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 January 2020 - 03:12 PM)

Is it really a worse name than say, HMS Spanker?

I hope the stockpiled nuclear weapons of the US and Russia are accounted for then.

@  Nevermore : (12 January 2020 - 12:22 PM)

Geez. 1760 (!) bombs from World War II that had not detonated and were still armed have been found. That's only the numbers for the federal state of Germany I live in, and only for the first three quarters of 2019. For all of 2018, the total number was 2811 (!!) bombs.

@  CVReynolds : (11 January 2020 - 11:05 PM)

I've been wanting a Tarantulas that turns into a more realistic tarantula for a long time. Maybe Takara will someday do a Masterpiece, which would be neat. But I really want to see a modernized look like in the IDW comics.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (11 January 2020 - 09:43 PM)

We need more Waspinators.. and rattraps.

@  Ashley : (11 January 2020 - 07:09 PM)

I'm on board with that

@  Dekafox : (11 January 2020 - 06:17 PM)

What I'm hearing is we need Cyberverse Waspinator

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 January 2020 - 01:27 AM)

He's appeared across more branding changes than Waspinator, so maybe it's more the other way around.

@  Ashley : (10 January 2020 - 12:01 AM)

is C3PO the Waspinator of Star Wars? he'll live forever, because it's funny for him to suffer

@  Sabrblade : (09 January 2020 - 11:52 PM)

I mean, it is easier to protect HDDs, and you can retransfer the data over and over forever?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 January 2020 - 10:45 AM)

Not in this comparison. He's making his own files, so they're (presumably) not restricted by DRM, so he can copy them as many times as he wants. It's potentially more reliable in the long term than hoping the specific copies you originally bought never accrue any damage for the rest of your life.

@  Echowarrior : (09 January 2020 - 10:44 AM)

I prefer physical copies too. Easier to protect something physical and tangible.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 09:55 AM)

I prefer having physical copies.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 January 2020 - 08:56 AM)

I have plenty of physical media I turn into digital media for my plex server. Just finished ripping Ultra Seven

@  fourteenwings : (09 January 2020 - 08:50 AM)

Isn't the general consensus that we're supposed to be over physical media anyways?

@  Paladin : (09 January 2020 - 08:17 AM)

i still don't own a Blu-Ray player.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 January 2020 - 07:35 AM)

My current TV works just fine. I don't see a need to upgrade. And by the time I do, the Next Big Thing will probably be out anyway.

@  Benbot : (09 January 2020 - 03:58 AM)

Me neither. I'm no rebel, though. I'm just poor.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 03:38 AM)

I haven't gone 4K yet, I'm a rebel.

@  Ashley : (07 January 2020 - 11:50 PM)

the comic theme is amazing

@  Bass X0 : (07 January 2020 - 03:18 PM)

Sounds like Victor Caroli but I’m not sure.

@  Bass X0 : (07 January 2020 - 02:35 PM)

Should I recognise the narrator of the Mutant Hunt trailer?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 January 2020 - 04:30 AM)

I got me Titans Return Blaster, now watch them unveil Earthrise Blaster and Generations Perceptor, a retool of Titans Blaster.

@  ThunderWear : (06 January 2020 - 10:22 PM)

I recently switched to to the comic theme here at the Allspark and I'm so happy I just want to look at it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (06 January 2020 - 08:12 AM)

Can you not take so many lines to say anything?

@  fourteenwings : (06 January 2020 - 07:47 AM)

Iunno, maybe people having unique pronunciations of things re:how they understand language makes the world a more colourful place, rather than one where we correct every seemingly grievous error?

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:12 AM)

Others insist on "Michael Yackson".

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:01 AM)

Because the very combination of those sounds is unknown to them, and thus they avoid it as if it were contagious.

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:00 AM)

For example, the English "J" sound consists of sounds that exist in German: Basically, it's just a "d" sound followed by a very soft "sh". Yet there are many Germans who insist on calling the late King of Pop "Michael Checkson".

So, uh, Dante's battle theme came out.

 

 

Setting aside my opinion of the band, I still really don't care for it. Deathcore, or whatever you want to classify this as, really isn't my thing and the vocals are atrocious. Even the mixing of the song seems pretty bad. Can't hear the guitars, the drums are basically silent, and the vocals are a bit too loud. If they passed on bring Shootie back, why not stick with Combichrist? They did well with DmC.

Okay, I was planning on getting it already, but the mega buster definitely makes me more eager.

 

I'm wondering about the chronology of the trailer scenes, now.  I figured that Dante returned from Hell over the course of the game, and I actually thought that the scene where he got a new client would take place at the end of the game, but then the Kylo Ren-looking guy walked in, and apparently he's the third playable character.

 

Looks like the Majin Devil Trigger is the standard now, or at least his standard form kept the wings.  Which fold into a coat.  So silly, so cool, and I wonder if the makers were thinking of Gargoyles when they came up with it.


Unfortunately, fools are often planproof.

Okay, tracked down "subhuman" Dante's theme.

 

The music itself isn't too bad, but yeah the singer isn't very good, and with the information of what the singer has done, I'm kinda hoping they do something else for the theme.

Summary of Game WATCH Article (Style switching Confirmed!)
renderTimingPixel.png

Link to the article: https://game.watch.impress.co.jp/

I don't have time to do a full translation right now so I'll try to just summarize all the new info.

  • There will be more weapons for Dante than those shown in the trailer.

  • Balrog's Blow mode will have increased damage with each punch.

  • It's possible to customize the order of weapon switching.

  • Real-time style switching is confirmed. (Royalguard and Swordmaster are mentioned in the article)

Other minor tidbits
  • Balrog is named after the character of the same name in Street Fighter.

  • Dante's head had to be made smaller than the original concept art due to the game's over-the-shoulder camera.

  • During development, Cavaliere was originally intended to be given to Nero by someone. The designer surprised everyone with the idea of using a motorcycle as a weapon after being asked to design a new devil arm.

  • Correcting this google translation someone posted: Majin Dante (魔人ダンテ) is indeed mentioned, but that's what the demon form is called in Japanese. No mention of Majin Form (真魔人Shin-Majin) from DMC2 returning.

EDIT: More info from this Dengeki article
  • There will be a boss with the word Angelo in its name.

  • 4 styles from previous DMC titles are confirmed. Rainstorm is confirmed to return.

Just FYI, that first Dante gameplay video skips the cutscene before the boss fight but shows the one after, which might be why it got removed from IGN.

 

The more I watch of Dante in this, the more I think that Dante's character in the second game is now part of his intended character arc.  The games have never really hid the fact that Dante is dealing with some major trauma from all the crap that's happened to him.  I don't think that I'd go as far as saying that his fun-loving aspects are just an act, but it's kinda telling that the only time he really lightened up in 2 was when he was fighting, and that seems to be the case in this game, too.  There's points where Dante is between fights and just seems...  weary.  And he's gone from using rigged coin flips as an excuse to help people to actively avoiding his own allies.

 

Going in chronological order, his parents were killed in childhood, his brother killed masses of humans in a bid for power, dropped into hell rather than let Dante save him, got lead into trap by a woman that looked like his mother, fought his mind controlled brother, who then exploded, then the demon clone of his mother seemingly died, then he encountered his dead brother's previously unmentioned son, which couldn't have brought up good memories.

 

With all that, the real question is whether he decided to become a coin-flipping weirdo before or after trying to drink himself to death.

 

Hmmn.  The IGN footage showed Dante fight a miniboss wearing Nelo Angelo armor.  I don't think that Vergil has gotten any less dead recently, but it looks like at least one of the factions is using Mundus' old gear.

Enh.  I'm not surprised that people keep clamoring for his return, but nothing has even hinted at a resurrection.  I can't remember whether the Order using parts of Vergil's corpse to turn people into hybrids was from something official or just a rumor, but the Sparda cultists that had his old sword didn't try to bring him back.

 

There is a theory that Vergil is the guy that ripped off Nero's arm, but I haven't found it even kinda convincing.  At least that theory remembered that Vergil was a bad guy in life, something that a lot of fans seem to gloss over.

I think there's pretty strong circumstantial evidence about the mysterious visitor who took the Devil Bringer. Have you seen the cutscenes from the playtester leak? There's some interesting stuff there but if you're trying to avoid details like that then I don't want to spoil. The sudden reveal of Nelo Angelo enemies is a neat twist, or at least keeps us guessing. I'm interested to see how it ultimately plays out.

And apparently Capcom are putting in microtransactions tied to orbs and levelling. Basically, you can buy more orbs to buy more skills faster. This has the potential to be really irritating if they decide to push up the prices for the most desirable and effective skills as an incentive to make people spend rewl cash so they can skip grinding.

Everything elde about the game sounds utterly awesome though!

It's going to be the exact same thing as they had in DMC4SE. Which means it's going to be completely and utterly ignorable and you don't have to worry about it. Also apparently the game so far hands out orbs by the bucket full.
