I got stabbed in the eyelid by a mudwasp, pulled down a tree, and then got ice cream. You know, all told: not a bad day.

What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Woot! Beast wars!

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 06:08 PM)

Yay! Tubi now has the first season of Rescue Bots and the full run of Beast Wars FINALLY available.

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 02:16 PM)

Just like me in a game of Civilization. Don't have gunpowder? Time for your cities to burn.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 01:51 PM)

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

@  Paladin : (14 October 2019 - 09:57 AM)

he landed by coincidence in front of long-term residents.

@  Sabrblade : (14 October 2019 - 09:55 AM)

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 09:22 AM)

In the year 1492, Columbus gave us the day off skoo

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 08:29 AM)

You've got like two more weeks until the american thanksgiving. Canadian thanksgiving is literally a harvest festival.

@  CVReynolds : (14 October 2019 - 08:09 AM)

Hey, everyone. Come together to enjoy this national holiday made to celebrate a mass-murderer who never set foot in the USA. What fun!

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 07:25 AM)

that's perfect!

@  PlutoniumBoss : (14 October 2019 - 02:22 AM)

A school-bus combiner called Valedictorion.

I actually never heard of the name Megalodon until recently.

@  Noideaforaname : (08 October 2019 - 09:44 AM)

Bus-Top, Omnibus, Cerebus, Busicus, Busicon

What's a good name for a school bus Transformer?

@  lastmaximal : (08 October 2019 - 12:57 AM)

Huh. There's a neat name for Beast Hunters Sharkticon Megs.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 October 2019 - 11:44 AM)

It's a submarine, we swear!

@  Otaku : (07 October 2019 - 11:26 AM)

@Bass X0 Letting myself comment to say "That's a good one!" and ask "Would a megalodon be a good fit for Megatron?"

@  Benbot : (07 October 2019 - 07:59 AM)

Ohhh good one

@  Bass X0 : (07 October 2019 - 07:39 AM)

I now want a Decepticon shark called Megalotron.

@  TriBlurr : (06 October 2019 - 05:47 PM)

Gives them time to screw up the color of his hands. :p

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 October 2019 - 12:33 PM)

His bulk is too great to teleport across such distances.

@  Sabrblade : (06 October 2019 - 11:09 AM)

Cuz it'll take that long to mass produce.

@  Darth Gonzo : (06 October 2019 - 10:47 AM)

Why is Unicron coming in 2021 and not 2020?

@  wonko the sane? : (06 October 2019 - 06:47 AM)

Shut up rattrap.

Just some thoughts on Devil Breakers. Not explicit ranking but broad categorizing.

High

Gerbera: Both versions. I value the Gerberas extremely highly for their aerial mobility, to the point I think it makes up for their lackluster Break Ages. I never use the Stamen Ray in normal combat since it leaves you stationary for so long, and the Petal Ray is pretty circumstantial. It kinda feels like the basic technique is too valuable to lose in exchange for either a lot of the time.

Punch Line: Great for harassment and singular enemy control. Jet Gadget is a bit gimmicky but fun (love the skate course for it in 15), and Boost Knuckle is extremely powerful without needing much setup.

Ragtime: While I do find the basic technique a bit hard to use (I still haven't plumbed its full depths either), its Break Age is one of the most overtly powerful abilities in the game. One of the safest and most reliable ways for Nero to dispose of Furies too, which was a Godsend on HaH.

 

High-Mid

 

Overture: Simplicity personified. A very straightforward, widely applicable attack that's good for deflects and staggering enemies. I don't use the Break Age that often, but in general the Overture is great as a no-frills weapon to slip into combos.

 

Mid

 

Buster: Ridiculously powerful, even out-stripping the Devil Bringer with ease. I only take it for specific purpose though (bosses, some elite enemies), since for normal battles and style building the Devil Bringer grab you can use without cost is sufficient.

Tomboy: It's a lot of fun but the window for being broken because you got hit using it is so large.

 

Mid-Low

 

Rawhide: The basic AOE doesn't have as much reach as I'd like, the Wire Snatch upgrade is the definition of circumstantial, and the Break Age takes setup to get proper use out of.

 

Low

Helter Skelter: Just awful, really. Slow to use, very long animation that leaves you extremely vulnerable.

Sweet Surrender, Pasta Breaker, Mega Buster: Just gimmicks.

Bunch of cool tech, and a reminder that Royal Guard is still ridiculous.

Just got DMC5 as a sort of early Easter present. From Amazon so i got the alternate costumes too. The game is awesome, obviously.

Making Nico a blonde for her alternate was interesting and i kinda prefer Neros alternate dark hair/white outfit/black weapons combo.

I've cooled on 5 a lot faster than I ever did on 4, on any of my three go-arounds (360, PC, SE). I've only given Bloody Palace a couple of goes with each character. A large part of it is that I don't find enemy and boss designs at all interesting, and the 'realistic' filter over everything makes me feel flumphy. I'm not a huge fan of Dante's weapons either.

Wow, why so? I'd consider it my favorite Dante arsenal out of the existing games.

 

That said I do run the Sparda in addition to the DSD, just for access to Roundtrip and whatnot.

3 is still my fave but I'd have to put five as a second. I couldn't stand playing 4's palace and higher difficulties for too long because of the awful enemy design that were either complete pushovers or the fish and the electric lizards.

 

That said, I'm not a fan of the realistic look either but it's passable.

The weapons just lack punch or flow for me; DSD is the best, but it's just Rebellion/Sparda with the fancier moves removed or harder to execute; Cerberus ice has no range and feels awful for me, while fire is good, but requires SM style; Cavaliere is great against groups of easily staggered guys, but outside of that it's got too much wind up and down; Balrog just doens't have the flow that Beowulf or Gilgamesh did, and although it's probably for the best, I miss Distorted Real Impact.

 

And it's not just Dante that I'm down on, I love V and Nero feels exactly the same as in 4, although I think Ex-Act is a little more forgiving now, so it's not just the new moveset. Maybe it's the amount of time I put into 4 that I'm just so used to its weapons and enemies.
