Actually on the subject, I've hard a lot of people refer to a 2011 film called Contagion that they think is relevant.

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 April 2020 - 01:11 AM)

Ah well, I'll stick to the classic British sitcoms: One Foot in the Grave, Til Death Do Us Part and They Think It's All Over.

@  TM2-Megatron : (05 April 2020 - 12:53 AM)

There's always the original, cheesy as it is

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (05 April 2020 - 12:10 AM)

Dunno... Tonight one of the major networks showed a movie with plagues.. including that listening to their leader causes the first born to die. ;P So nah.. I think the Stand could work. :D

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 April 2020 - 09:18 PM)

That's probably the last thing anyone needs to see, at the moment. Maybe when we get to the end of June/beginning of July and we can venture back out, it might be possible to find some enjoyment in The Stand.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 April 2020 - 02:08 PM)

I suppose the CBS adaptation of Stephen Kings The Stand will be delayed.

We'll always be together. Together in electric dreams.

Please remember that in these times of social distancing, we'll always be together however far it seems.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 12:41 PM)

It arrived! Yay!

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 11:25 AM)

Given how the virus lasts about 3-4 days on metals and plastics, it's about the only way to go about getting stuff right now. I ordered a monitor mount for my desk and the delivery has been pushed back twice already.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 11:04 AM)

He ordered it online, says it was to keep those delivery boys in business. I did the same a week ago with some Transformers Studio Series figures off Kapow. Don't know if it's wise or not considering.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 09:12 AM)

You'd be the first. Everyone else has either been frustrated cause the one they wanted was sold out (like during boxing week.) or rushing to replace something broken.

@  RYNO : (03 April 2020 - 08:53 AM)

I actually walked into a store the other day and just randomly decided to buy at 32inch TV. It was just a Vizio, and grabbed a Mounting Bracket for it. No duress. Just a spur of the moment wanted a TV for my master bedroom.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:31 AM)

Conversely: I've never met a person who wasn't buying a TV under duress... so... yeah.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:20 AM)

I think I've met maybe two people other than myself who count cables before buying a TV.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (03 April 2020 - 05:33 AM)

Seriously.. HDMI splitters and switches are so bloody finicky, but most tvs don't have enough inputs.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 05:09 AM)

Just spent a hour trying to get my brothers new Samsung TV to read his Playstation and Blu Ray player only to find he was using a HDMI splitter.

@  Sabrblade : (01 April 2020 - 08:58 PM)

This morning, for one of my online classes, I had to give a positive oral presentation about a play that I hated having to watch. I went into it completely unprepared and just winged it. My professor LOVED my presentation and thought it was excellent. She believed every word I said and honestly thought that I enjoyed that miserable play. Best April Fools ever!

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:51 PM)

Not to be confused with Leader I

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

He was Leader Uno

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

He was the OTHER Leader 1

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 March 2020 - 06:29 PM)

Or Sideways.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 March 2020 - 05:26 PM)

On the other hand, this is Armada we're talking about. It could have actually been Metroplex.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 March 2020 - 11:08 PM)

Oh yeah, that was Fort Max. My bad.

Christmas Maximus?

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 March 2020 - 01:13 PM)

At least the ozone layer is healing. unless this is a 0.0000000001% thing it's sounds like good news.

@  ▲ndrusi : (28 March 2020 - 09:27 AM)

(But only pretty sure, not 100% sure.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (28 March 2020 - 09:26 AM)

Pretty sure y'all were thinking of Fortress Maximus yesterday.

@  Bass X0 : (28 March 2020 - 12:38 AM)

Dare! Dare to believe you can survive 2020!

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 March 2020 - 08:18 PM)

Baja Blast is back at retail!

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 March 2020 - 03:47 PM)

Shame he wasn't around more. He seemed like such a jolly, happy soul.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 02:16 PM)

No, he was definitely Metroplex. You could tell because he was in Metroplex's distinctive red and green coloration.

@  Paladin : (27 March 2020 - 02:11 PM)

that was Leader-1. or possibly Jolt. maybe Grindor...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 01:57 PM)

Metroplex was in Armada, in a flashback. He was the same size as everybody else. I thought that was the joke.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (27 March 2020 - 12:39 PM)

@Rodimus Supreme: Gah! You are right! How'd I get that mixed up? x.x;

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 March 2020 - 12:14 PM)

There is no Metroplex. Only Zuul.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:13 AM)

@Tm_Silverclaw: There is no Armada Metroplex, he was in Cybertron.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:12 AM)

And they'd be better off just retooling Metroplex and Fortress Maximus to be somewhat more accurate and changing/adding parts for interaction with later play gimmicks.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:11 AM)

I honestly would prefer that for scale purposes.

@  Cyoti : (27 March 2020 - 11:07 AM)

They can redo all the CW combiners as Titan Class figures like Predaking/Devastator.

@  Dekafox : (27 March 2020 - 07:52 AM)

They could just redo Metroplex again too. Especially if it's going to be S3 based. They could also do another Primus to go with the coming Unicron.

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.

Vergil bullying is a fine art, but using Quadruple S just to i-frame through Judgment Cuts is so swag I laughed out loud.
