People forget the whole phrase. It's "Great minds thing alike, but fools rarely differ."

@  Nevermore : (21 February 2019 - 08:49 PM)

The German version is very straightforward: "Two idiots, one idea."

@  Nevermore : (21 February 2019 - 08:49 PM)

English: "Great minds think alike".

@  Nevermore : (21 February 2019 - 08:49 PM)

Here's an example of a phrase that's charmingly positive in English but self-deprecating in German:

Turns out the basic figures in the transformers siege line are basically minicons, and my sister is back in the hospital for another psychotic break. It's been an emotional day, and it's not even 1 pm yet.

Maybe, or maybe it'd be more like wood? Y'know, bashing each other with planks.

It's not "Optiplush"... it's "Softimus Prime"

@  Ashley : (19 February 2019 - 08:19 PM)

I've got the two plushes from the first movie, they're great

@  Shrug : (19 February 2019 - 08:00 PM)

Still have mine, although Optiplush Prime is kind of discolored

@  Shrug : (19 February 2019 - 07:59 PM)

They came out around the time of the first movie with the big merch push, but they were distinctly G1 and everything else wasnt, IIRC

@  wonko the sane? : (19 February 2019 - 01:41 PM)

I did not even know those things were a thing. I guess they didn't do very well cause they didn't make more of them.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 February 2019 - 01:25 PM)

Pfft, Hasbro did that 12 years ago with Slumblebee and Optiplush Prime

@  Xellos : (19 February 2019 - 12:37 PM)

Well, this past Christmas I did see licensed plush Transformers that went from their robot to vehicle mode by turning inside out just like popples.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 February 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Why DIDN'T transformers make plushes ala popples?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Design in mixed media and make him out of actual flannel.

@  Lancer : (18 February 2019 - 09:24 PM)

Make his fur a red and black flannel pattern

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:10 PM)

Bonus points if you can work in a red and black flannel pattern on his chest plate.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:09 PM)

Might as well make it cliched. Lumberjack moose male and aristocratic deer female.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2019 - 08:16 PM)

Or their aristocratic deer.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2019 - 08:10 PM)

i just checked my past tfsource orders, and theres no sales tax charge

@  Arazyr : (18 February 2019 - 11:16 AM)

They haven't (yet, at least) on the stuff I currently have in my Stack. Haven't had them ship anything for a while, though, so I don't know if they will when I do...

@  Benbot : (18 February 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Does TFSource charge sales tax?

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:47 AM)

That's because, once upon a time, the people whom owned the animals weren't the people whom butchered them. So the pig was owned by a saxon who spoke english, but butchered by a french speaker. So a pig got cut up into PORC chops.

@  unluckiness : (18 February 2019 - 03:25 AM)

Hank Pym<<<< Hank Hill

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 February 2019 - 01:28 AM)

In that case, I don't see anything wrong with English speakers calling it what it is in English. Even though we technically use the French words for what comes out of it. "Beef", "pork"...

@  Bass X0 : (17 February 2019 - 02:04 PM)

I’d like a Siege Thundercracker who has his regular blue colors Cybertronian jet mode which transforms into a robot mode with his Action Master colors. Looks like it could be possible.

Doesn't seem to be a thread for this, which is surprising if true.

It's good but really wears its inspirations on its sleeve. Feels like if you put the Raimi movies, the second Raimi game and Arkham Knight in a blender.

I'm absolutely loving it. I'm at about 45% and it doesn't really seem to be doing anything revolutionary, but everything it does is done well. The web-traversal is excellent, the combat is fun (once you get the hang of it), there's heaps of variety in mission types and yet I haven't found a single objective that's annoying or frustrating.

 

I got a "rare" trophy for using the fast travel five times, and I was like... only five? That's rare? But it's just so much fun to swing the whole length of the map. The fast travel scenes are adorable, but I've only used it if I was in a hurry. 

 

Not super fond of their Peter design, but everyone else looks phenomenal and the story and character work is really great. This is the first game I've played in like two years that completely overrides my "put Overwatch back in the tray" urge, and if you'd told me a few weeks ago that it would be good enough that I haven't yet bothered to buy the new TR, I'd have laughed at you. 

 

Can it beat GoW for GotY? I don't know, but as great as GoW was, I was still switching regularly back to Overwatch. So I guess I know where my vote will land.

Just finished the story mode yesterday, and I spent a good chunk of today going for 100% completion.
 
Nothing revolutionary by the standards of modern, open-world, action-type games, but a truly excellent superhero experience. I loved everything from the subtly different animations caused by the same button press depending on the characters' positions, the mini-puzzles that approximate what it's like to actually be smart, and the brilliant Jonah Jameson podcast.

So, if you are playing this game and have not completed the story, probably don't read this week's Spider-Geddon #0.

 

Super cool that they're bringing this Spidey into the books, but that one issue packs in a lot of late-game spoilers. Like, y'know, beyond "Otto goes bad" (GASP!).

Do they try to come up with an in-story explanation for how dirt-poor Peter Parker managed to buy himself 55 backpacks over the course of his school years?

If you find a certain backpack it contains a trophy from a Fisk sponsored science contest. Peter explains he morally never cashed the prize money cheque but happily accepted the other part of the prize- a lifetime supply of student backpacks.

It is a very awkward fudge but the whole backpack quest is. Peter left a lot of ID around the city.

In this way I think the Riddler quest works better. You're looking for stuff you'd find around Gotham and it unlocks a related story for the player. So find a Dent campaign poster for instance and get a story about what Two Face has been up to.

Ignoring story missions because I don't want this fun New York replaced by the dystopian one later in the game.

 

Got all the backpacks and unlocked the MCU home made suit.

The city sure does get jacked up. I've just gone from "there's nothing left to do" to "there's eighty guys to fight on every street corner, forever".

I'm at 75% now and struggling to imagine how they can fit the things I still expect to see into that last 25.

Yeah, while Spider-Man is a fun game.. they -really- dropped the ball in the final third I feel.

 

They needed to take a few lessons from Sucker Punch and Infamous.

It's fun but flawed. Having a big open New York is now a standard for a Spidey game but there isn't really much to do it. Random crime encounters start to get tedious and as far as I'm aware you can miss characters who give you side quests. There's photography quests/camera mode but as far as I'm aware the game doesn't save either of those and you have to use the Share button.

You can't miss any sidequests, HC. They're tied to achievements and no achievements are permanently missable.
