Ever notice Kath SOucie's Janine in the later episodes of Real Ghostbusters sounds like Tara Strong's Sari Sumdac?

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 September 2020 - 02:10 PM)

I wish they were more universal like Beast Wars, Animated or Prime and as professionally done,

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 September 2020 - 02:06 PM)

The Netflix shows are done for adults, the Generation toyline is for adults who grew up with G1.

Whatever happened to WFC Earthrise being a kids show X'D

@  wonko the sane? : (28 September 2020 - 11:43 AM)

Cool, my last tablet couldn't run it, and I stopped caring by the time I got the new one. So thanks!

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:27 AM)

There are crossover characters, but the amount and distribution... Marvel Vs Capcom this ain't.  If @wonko the sane? my bad!

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:21 AM)

I've been playing for *checks account* 1002 days, 23 hours.  So, by 2021, it will have been three years.  I think it takes place in its own continuity, largely inspired by G1 but borrowing from other places.

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

@wonko the sane? Can only speak for Earth Wars, but so few they're easy to forget.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 September 2020 - 07:39 AM)

Didn't they already do the across universes thing in that tablet game?

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:30 AM)

Also, make the setting an amalgamation of different Transformers series, rather than based on a specific one. Bring in things like 'Sentinel Major' as the primo Autobot jerk, and sleek car mode Vehicons as the Decepticons' basic grunt.

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:27 AM)

KT just needs to incorporate the vehicle modes into the combat system, like Platinum did for Devastation, so they're for more than just wheeling it across the battlefield. =P

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:25 AM)

Transformers: Warriors of Cybertron! =D

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 September 2020 - 01:53 AM)

Aren't TFs way more varied than Joes, as far as they'd work in gameplay? Like, Omega Supreme is vastly different from Bumblebee.

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 10:16 PM)

Hell, ripoff Super Robot Wars withTFs

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 10:16 PM)

IDK they could make something like FF tactics or Fire Emblem ripoff with Robots and i'd buy it

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 September 2020 - 09:43 PM)

See, I feel GI Joe (with it's varied cast) is a better fit for a strategy game, where as Transformers feels more suited for a shooter.

@  Maruten : (27 September 2020 - 08:28 PM)

I might give them points for making a strategy game if it's actually a good strategy game.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 07:48 PM)

I mean, points for making a strategy game instead of third person shooter, but: urrrrgggg. Cyberverse.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 07:47 PM)

A transformers game for the switch? *checks* Urrrggg... cyberverse...

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 September 2020 - 06:28 PM)

October will be a big month for Hasbro fans: Zoids, GI Joe AND Transformers all have brand new console games. All on the Switch at that!

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 09:04 AM)

At least in animated he was more driven than just "loyal bootlick".

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 08:29 AM)

Oof, That's a huge downgrade

@  Maximus Ambus : (27 September 2020 - 02:35 AM)

After rewatching Animated Sound and Fury, in my head canon Titans Return Soundwave is that Soundwave.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:09 PM)

On an unrelated note: I just got the BBTS email about kingdom pre-orders... and even the stuff I don't want I'm perfectly willing to get if it means I can have the rest of it.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:08 PM)

It's digimon. So first one, then the other.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

50/50 odds, it's either a helicopter with limbs, or a scantily-clad human with heli blades on their back. If female, 90% odds on the second one.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2020 - 12:39 PM)

I read that as "Helicoptermon" and wondered what kind of Digimon that was.

@  Bass X0 : (26 September 2020 - 12:35 PM)

Helicopter-mom, transform!

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 September 2020 - 11:58 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 September 2020 - 05:04 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 September 2020 - 01:00 PM)

And then Knockout was in the wall again.

@  Sabrblade : (24 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

Knockout: "Ooh, sorry, Lord Megatron. The correct word was... 'Decepticon'."

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 September 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Knockout: *while doing a crossword puzzle* Lord Megatron, whats a ten letter word for disappointment? | Megatron: ...... Starscream.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 September 2020 - 01:20 PM)

@Bass X0 Shockwave did it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 September 2020 - 11:56 AM)

At least it's not Suntwerker.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

I read that name as "suntweaker" the first time, and was terrified for a moment...

This looks really interesting to me. It looks like each cabinet runs about $300. The cabinets are fairly small (as in more of a sit down rather than stand-up). But there are risers available (not sure about what the additional cost is).

I'd kinda like to get one of these, like, if they're still around come next tax-return or if I can have a few months to save up for it.

I mean, most of the games I see now that I care about (Final Fight, Street Fighter II, Galaga), I already have "arcade-perfect" ports of thanks to PS3 and Switch. So this would really just be a whole thrill of an actual arcade cabinet at home type thing. Now if they could get the license to some Konomi games (Particularly TMNT), I would be all over this no hesitation.

Now I know some of you already have actual arcade cabinets in your homes already. So this may not be something you'd care too much for. I've heard there are higher quality cabinets that can be made with more games and bigger cabinets and all. But for someone who isn't up on the whole technical side of things such as building their own cabinets and stuff, from what I've heard this is really easy even for us non-tech type people to put together and have.

I don't know. Like I said, I already have the Street Fighter 30th Anniversary Collection. So it makes it hard to spend $300 for another copy of Street Fighter II. I also have the CapCom Beat 'Em Up collection. So it would be hard to justify the one with Final Fight on it. But if they ever did get the rights for a TMNT one, I'd be all over that. Otherwise, I may just consider that Street Fighter one just as a way of actually having something resembling an arcade cabinet in my home.

Canadian retailers: Walmart!

 

I can't wait to see how badly marked up it will be. Regardless: I've been waffling about actually building an arcade cabinet for a long while now (It's mine and my brothers "summer project" since before his kid was born.), and this... seems like it could be a reasonably priced alternative. And depending on the hardware and how effectively it could be modded, might just be an "out of the box" solution to that.

 

Cheers man. This is something I am going to keep my eye on.

And, just thinking: if these get popular enough, they might do a lightgun edition. If it had either of the first two house of the dead games, I would jump on it.

The size of these things, even with the pedestal is tiny. For the cost of them, they aren't horrible if you want one for the novelty, but I would suggest making a MAME cabinet if you really are interested. More games, more fun, and the pride that you built it all for the same amount of money.

Yeah, the size does seem to be an issue. If you can build your own, that's probably a better way to go. I think the lure of this is for people *raises hand* who wouldn't even know where to begin making a cabinet. It's made for dummies like me to build out of box in half an hour.

Wonko: My understanding is that if by modding you mean you want a better joystick and buttons, it is possible to do that. But I'm not sure just how extensive modding potential is. May be something to look into before you buy.

Modding can also mean "figuring out how to extend the use of the hardware". Like they did with the NES classic and getting more games into the system. Looks like each of these cabinets come with 4 to five games, depending on which one you get: and depending on the hardware running the games (proprietary hardware/software, or off the shelf stuff like android, raspberry pie, or even a windows based system running off a netbook.) there might be the capacity to increase the controllers, change the control scheme, sideload more software onto it.

 

Some tech heads are going to get them, strip 'em to their bolts, and frankenstein them into something else entirely. And in the process, the rest of us can figure how to... optimize the play experience. :)

Early reports seem to suggest the things don't have much internal storage, but people who got units early have already succeeded in replacing the board with a raspberry pi for a more flexible emulation setup.

Over my dead body! I bought them stock and stock they shall remain. Though I may consider getting bat heads for the Street Fighter sticks, maybe. But that would be it.

My understanding from everyone I've heard though is that you can mod things like the sticks and buttons. I think there may even be some light up marquees you can get, though don't quote me on that.

But if your goal is to add more games, it simply doesn't have the storage to do that. You'd seriously be better just to get a raspberry or whatever they're called. This is really for the nitch consumer who wants something stock that they can play or someone who just doesn't have the tech knowledge and needs a simple IKEA machine that Joe Shmoe can put together in an hour.

Oh yeah: congrats man. They do look damn fine.

Thanks! It really does feel like I have a mini-arcade in my dining room and it's really hitting the nostalgic feels something fierce.

I'm considering getting the Final Fight and Mortal Kombat cabinets to join my Street Fighter one.

 

I've seen lots of videos were people replace the joystick and buttons as well as the CPU used (with Raspberry).  It's actually pretty easy for the most part.

I wish I had the money to get both the Final Fight and Mortal Kombat ones. But I could only afford one. Since I already had the Mortal Kombat collection on PS3 and had yet to have a decent version of Strider, it made the decision kinda easy.

Good luck with your hunt.

TMNT! Holy crap! Guys, you don't even understand. This is the arcade game I played more than Street Fighter, more than Mortal Kombat...quite possibly more than even Final Fight. I have the NES "Arcade Game" and the SNES Turtles in Time. But those were nowhere near arcade perfect. I got the unlocks that came as extras in the Gamecube games. But those were missing the music, a lot of soundbites and even the credits.

So to finally, after all these years, have arcade perfect ports within my grasp? Holy shit, guys! I've already used my tax return for Street Fighter and Final Fight. But even if I have to put this on the credit card, this will be mine. Seriously, you have no idea how long I've wanted this.
