Tarn is in Cyberverse.

@  Benbot : (27 February 2020 - 10:24 AM)

I really don't like that guy. Show the toys, not your face. I'm tired of looking at him.

@  RCX : (27 February 2020 - 09:25 AM)

Toy Galaxy is excellent.

@  Benbot : (27 February 2020 - 09:03 AM)

I think you'll be save in Greenland.

@  CORVUS : (27 February 2020 - 01:12 AM)

Toy Galaxy is my favorite overall toy-related channel on YouTube.

@  fourteenwings : (26 February 2020 - 11:29 PM)

Last year's coverage via Toy YouTubers was brilliant. However, since YouTube's new (unfortunately necessary) guidelines the companies barely invited any of them back, so all we get is super-popular collector's info.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 February 2020 - 09:19 PM)

If it weren't for Toy Galaxy's coverage video, I would not have known about the Defenders of the Earth figures. New toys of Flash Gordon, The Phantom, and Mandrake the Magician? In 2020? I would have said you were smoking something strong.

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:32 PM)

So the question is... has Madagascar closed down all its ports yet?

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:31 PM)

A couple that got infected attended a Carnival event with over 300 people in attendance.

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

So the Corona virus keeps getting closer to where I live. Several confirmed cases in my federal state already.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 February 2020 - 02:20 PM)

Man, only having collector sites to get Toy Fair news from sucks. Did you know there is a 4" line of kids figures for the new Avengers game coming?

@  Dekafox : (26 February 2020 - 11:54 AM)

Since Omega already exists they could name it Auntie

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:07 AM)

Oh, and one last Titan,provided we can fudge things a bit to include a character from Transformers: Animated; how about something at least resembling TF:A Omega Supreme?

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:05 AM)

How about they find a way to make a mold they can use for both Broadside and Tidal Wave?

@  Maximus Ambus : (26 February 2020 - 02:13 AM)

Optimus Maximus, the mysterious titan of the Arisen, also Iaconus from Cyberverse.

@  TriBlurr : (25 February 2020 - 12:41 AM)

I think the only other Titan class character that would interest me after Scoponok would be Tidal Wave

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 07:34 PM)

A Titan would have more room for other toys to hang out, assuming one has the table space for it.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Play wise which would be better a Commander Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside or a Titan Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 February 2020 - 01:53 PM)

I'd be interested in a deluxe or voyager Fort Max in Armada flashback red-and-green.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:49 AM)

I'd honestly be more interested in Commander-class Scorponok and Fort Max. I don't have the space for Titans.

@  Maximus Ambus : (24 February 2020 - 10:44 AM)

Make Commander class city bots to annoy collectors too

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:43 AM)

Make two Broadsides. One Voyager-sized that only turns into a jet, and one Titan-sized that only turns into an aircraft carrier. Piss off everyone on both sides of the scale.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Since they seem to also go by the oh-so holy cartoon scale thing, he'd probably be a Commander Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 February 2020 - 10:34 AM)

Broadside is an aircraft carrier. He should probably be metroplex sized.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:21 AM)

Broadside's more of a Commander Class.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 04:47 AM)

I think Broadside should be the next Titan Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2020 - 09:38 PM)

I tan nicely! But also have a family history of cancer... so... yeah, pasty for me it is.

@  Otaku : (23 February 2020 - 04:22 PM)

I really do begin to get sunburned after about 5 minutes of direct exposure, nowadays.  Side effect of already being pasty then going on a particular medication.  Yay?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 February 2020 - 01:36 PM)

It makes me burn. Accursed daystar.

To be fair, the games they could choose were probably limited by the lack of analog sticks...which WAS a really stupid decision on their part, but I guess that probably kept this somewhat affordable.  And Sony doesn't actually OWN any of the games people seem to want (like Castlevania, Crash, and Spyro), so it's not really Sony's fault.  That's kind of the problem with relying so much on third-party support...you don't actually OWN anything that makes you successful down the line.  

 

The first Persona is a welcome surprise, though.  It's probably the shortened and butchered original PS1 version, but it's always nice to have more RPGs on these machines. 

 

But that doesn't make this game lineup any more appealing.  Especially since I could easily see them releasing a different version with analog sticks in the future.  And since most of these games are available on the PS3 if nothing else.  More than half of these games just don't appeal to me.  

 

But I'll defend Rayman's inclusion.  It's a very pretty game for the time period and it's the only platformer on this machine other than Jumping Flash.  Visually, it's probably the game that's aged the best on this list.  Maybe it would've been a better idea to have Legend of Mana on here, knowing the audience, but, again, that wouldn't be Sony's call to make.

Sony still has rights (I can understand Gran Turismo because of the car rights) to:

Warhawk

Colony Wars

Wipeout (and 3 iterations to pick from)

Medievil

Alundra

G-Police

Jet Moto

Tomba

Legend of Dragoon

Crazy Ivan

Assault Rigs

Moto Toon Grand Prix 2

Disruptor (a FPS from Insomniac)

Sony produced a LOT of self content, especially through Pysgnosis.

 

More RPGs?

Chrono Cross, Final Fantasy Tactics, Legend of Dragoon, Alundra, Brave Fencer Musashi, Arc the Lad.

 

As for Rayman? I counter with Adventures of Lomax.  A spin off from Lemmings (which Sony owns), it covers much the same area as Rayman as a 2D action platformer, and it doesn't look half bad, either.  There's also cult classic Klonoa, which exemplifies the experimentation going on during that era of game design.

 

 

I just get the feeling that Sony was so worried about tieing the system to the current market (with GTA, Persona and Tom Clancy especially), that they didn't know or care about the actual console legacy.

You know what would have a been a better RPG to put on instead of the first Persona?

 

Literally any other RPG on the Playstation.

With Persona and GTA, it's like they're going for the beginnings of series that got popular later, rather than games that were necessarily good or popular themselves.

 

The Japanese list is distinctly better, but still has a similar lack of games from the system's later years.

Wow, those are the games they selected?  I guess Resident Evil 2 was off limits because of the remake and Castlevania:  SOTN is off limits because Sony is helping Konami port that and Rondo Of Blood to the PS4 in a console-exclusive collection.  Ditto to Crash and Spyro because of the N. Sane Trilogy and Reignited Trilogy.

 

As for the other games:  Nice to see Metal Gear Solid make the cut, and Battle Arena Toshinden is a good addition seeing as how it was an early release, and it was originally planned for Sofia, one of the fighters in the game, to be the Playstation's mascot.  If I had to change one thing, it would be Twisted Metal, and replace it with Twisted Metal 2, because TM2 improved on TM and brought us Axel the man strapped to two wheels.  Also, I'd replace Syphon Filter, Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six, Destruction Derby, Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo, and Grand Theft Auto with better games like Tomba, Mortal Kombat Trilogy, Legacy Of Kain:  Soul Reaver, Soulblade, and Klonoa.

Spikeriley, don’t most of the games your suggesting require the duel shock?


And with a lot of Sony’s recent decisions, we may be giving them to much credit on some of these decisions.

MGS is by Konami, they could have included Castlevania too if they wanted. But they just put out the Requiem collection, so there's that.

 

Crash and Spyro have new remasters out so Activision wants the sales to focus on THOSE.

 

I KIND of understand PaRappa because there's a recent Remaster out, but you can't deny it's a tentpole. Same as Wipeout.

 

Tomba, even though it's a dead property, is one of the greatest platformers ever made. I'd have loved to have seen both it and its sequel.

 

I'm more on the niche side so I'd have loved to see Armored Core, Devil Dice, both Tomba games and PaRappa.

 

The Japanese PS1 Classic is getting Parasite Eve...I mean, OK. It's pretty niche even in Japan. But them getting Devil Dice and Armored Core? I just hope this is as equally easily hackable as the Nintendo Retro systems because there's gonna be a homebrew scene whether Sony likes it or not.


But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

You see, I just can't get behind the "the just came out with a remaster" argument. Final Fantasy VII has been released on both the PS3 and PS4, with the PS4 version having some upgrades. It made the cut.

Also, having just released games on every Virtual Console in existence didn't stop Nintendo from putting its Marios, Zeldas and Metroids on their mini-consoles...and again on the Switch online.

I really don't think one has anything to do with the other anyway. The mini-system is a completely separate system from the PS4 you get the remasters on.

I think it's just some poor decision making on Sony's part.
PSN = Caldwin

No one and I mean no one is going to be happy with the PS1 list of games and thats a good thing heres why...

 

The PS1 is the first system to really have a diverse set of games from just about every genre in gaming and for most of them to be good as well... if not great

 

Tactical nuts have: FF Tactics, Front Mission 3, Panzer General

Sim Nuts Have: Grand Tourismo F1 Racing, Eagle One

Shooter Fans have: Raiden Triad, Einhander, Thunder Force V

 

The list goes on and on for every category of games out there the PS1 has a game for everyone

Sorry.. Gonna argue. I think the SNES was -far- more diverse.

But I do think the PS classic should have had the original Legacy of Kain.

I was kind of interested in this till I saw the games list.

 

There's a few on there that jump out at me as games I've been meaning to play.  MGS, Oddworld, Rayman...  But the lack of Dualshock controller really hamstrings the options and cuts out quite a few exceptionally classic PS1 games.  Like, how they can release a PSClassic and not have Silent Hill on there is just baffling.  Yes, no dualshock but that's a manufactured problem.  If they had wanted to include Dualshock games, they easily could have.

 

As it is... it's really not an attractive enough list to justify the buy.  I almost feel like it would be more worth the money to find one of the several PSone releases and just buy that and whatever games I want to play.

Really?

 

What was SNES version of Gran Tourismo? Armored Core? Ace Combat 2,3? THPS?

The SNES was a fantastic machine but there are things that the PS1 got right and did better Raceing ,simulation are just two examples

 

Beside thats not what this is about its about how no two people are going to agree on the perfect PS1 list for a classic not if the SNES was more diverse

Or a PS3.  Over 2/3rd of the games are readily available for download for that device and it can play original discs.  That's in addition to the wealth of stuff a decade old console has access to.

I agree to an extent.  The limited number of titles always meant compromise.

THAT SAID....

I feel safe in saying Sony picked some STRANGE titles for a device celebrating the original Playstation.  To me, GTA and Persona didn't get good and well received until later entries (much as many people have all but ignored the original Street Fighter or Final Fantasy. The sequel(s) were just SO much better), and Rainbow Six was just a poor port of a game to begin with.  Why are there THREE puzzle games...but only two RPGs?

 

No, it wasn't ever going to be the "perfect collection", but it is highly disappointing that games that DEFINED the console (like Tomb Raider, Crash, Silent Hill, Gran Turismo, Armored Core, Wipeout) are not present, but we get stuff like Mr Driller, Puzzle Fighter and a crap port of Rainbow Six?

I'm not sure why people keep listing no DS controller for the reason of game selection. I belive Ape escape was the only western game to require it.
I finally got rid of that big white box.

To me, a classic console of any kind needs to paint a picture of that device's "identity".  Typically, that includes the best games, but I think it should also include the evolution of the device.  The NES is a good example, where you had basic early release games like Super Mario Bros 1 and the pre-NES arcade ports, to games like Kirby and Star Tropics which showed just how far the system got in terms of sophistication.  Even the SNES Classic touched on that by including later titles like Donkey Kong Country and Star Fox 2, demonstrating an evolution from Super Mario World and F-Zero.

 

In that respect, I feel the Playstation Classic was in a similar situation.  It was as much a "transitional device" as the NES was in its time.  I think it was important to include some of those major initial wave games like Destruction Derby, Toshinden, and the MIA Wipeout as well as demonstrate how the system advanced.  To me, BAT was a key hype generator for the device, but Tekken 3 is basically the pinnacle of 3D fighters on the device.  Destruction Derby was comparable to many similar racers in 1995, while R4 was the product of the prior generation of refinement.  Jumping Flash is a decent 3D shooter, but where is cult classic Omega Boost (from the makers of Gran Turismo)?

Resident Evil DC is a fine addition, but I feel Silent Hill should have been there to "contrast" in style and tone and design sophistication.

 

To me, Take 2 and Ubisoft have no reason to be on this device.  Those franchises would not become staples for another generation.  I don't understand Mr. Driller when they could have gotten anything from Klonoa to Ace Combat.  Square is immensely underutilized, lacking Tomb Raider (a STAPLE for the console) and missing an opportunity for Ehrgiez, a cult classic FAR more in demand than Persona.

And from my post earlier, Sony themselves have access to a WEALTH of house titles to pull from.  Warhawk, the nigh-forgotten Colony Wars, G-Police, Motertoon Grand Prix, Omega Boost, FREAKIN' WIPEOUT....

 

The whole thing feels exceedingly rushed, with no significant thought put in besides snagging Tekken, Final Fantasy, Resident Evil and Ridge Racer.  I'm still of the view that we'll get a refreshed "25th Anniversary" device next year that will address the lackluster selection this time around.  Sony will be able to sell the thing TWICE just by producing this lackluster version first.

So you know that wonder that is the fact we now have a world standardized format for TV and video equipment?  So we don't have to worry about Europe's funky PAL monitor difference at running at a lower hertz than the US and Japan?  Someone forgot to tell Sony that, apparently.  In what can only be called outright incompetence, Sony decided to use the PAL versions for 9 of the PS Classic titles.  As a result, the games effectively run at 50 instead of 60 frames per second.

 

 

  • Battle Arena Toshinden
  • Cool Boarders 2
  • Destruction Derby
  • Grand Theft Auto
  • Jumping Flash!
  • Oddworld: Abe’s Oddysee
  • Resident Evil Director’s Cut
  • Tekken 3
  • Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six

And it so happens that BOTH fighting games are among them!  So that means we have a lackluster selection, with no analog sticks (which will make Rainbow Six even MORE of a bitch to play), and now some of the games are PAL versions which means they won't feel right.  And the fact both fighters are among them is just pouring salt in the wound.

Well, the last couple videos I posted were from Playstation Access (which as much as I like the channel, was way too fanboyish for this), and RGT85 (slightly less fanboyish but still totally on board).



RGT seems to have come down a bit harsher on it now. I'd like to see if Playstation Access still wants to defend it.

Me? I started out iffy on this. I've gotten progressively "nope" about it. I guess at least I still have the PSN store.

Some venues still come across as ass kissing...the broad critical response is coming across as quite negative
