Best of luck man.

GOOD LUCK, NEVERMORE!

The election committee whose chairman I am has been preparing this election since February. There's no real gain for me either way, so I don't care that much for the outcome, but it's going to be a stressful day for me either way.

@  Nevermore : (05 May 2021 - 03:13 PM)

Wish me luck. Tomorrow is this year's supervisory board election at my workplace, and I'm the guy in charge of organizing the election.

I have two Overlords one was faulty with a melted foot and they never took it back but replaced it, I just checked the guns, both the handles seem to be turning white.

pansy. my trypticon AND scorponok took a header from 4 feet up and only had parts pop off that were easily reattached. guess 'cons are tougher...

@  tigerhawk : (04 May 2021 - 04:03 PM)

My TR Perceptor fell and the titan master peg in the leg snapped off. Fortunately I have the Legends one.

@  wonko the sane? : (02 May 2021 - 08:50 PM)

It's a fairly well known fact that "it's a wonderful life" only became popular after it dropped into the public domain. So, yeah, they probably did.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (02 May 2021 - 08:29 PM)

I read an interesting observation on Twitter. If it is the natural course of a human to grow into Grandpa Abe yelling at a cloud, but nostalgia also yields rose-tinted glasses for the likes of one's youth, then did Greatest Generation adults bemoan how Baby Boomer children loved box office flops such as The Wizard of Oz and It's a Wonderful Life?

@  Steevy Maximus : (02 May 2021 - 09:54 AM)

You’re traveling down a rabbit hole I dare not follow

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:26 AM)

At the same time, with my almost non-existent knowledge of Japanese and how oddly some things translate, seeing "Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges" made me wonder if that would make it "JoJoJo"... which now has my brain terrified of a weird Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo/Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Crossover. @[email protected]

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:24 AM)

It is always weird when things align.  This talk of Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges in the SquawkBox reminded me of King Gorgeous Gorge on the FoxBox.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 May 2021 - 08:52 PM)

Nice

@  Nevermore : (01 May 2021 - 09:03 AM)

I got one even better: After that character by the name of Gorgeous Giorgios dies in a gorge, they name that whole area after him: The Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges.

@  tigerhawk : (30 April 2021 - 01:56 AM)

Paint apps did slide notably during TR, wave one's Titan Masters had detail but wave 2 onwards was absent of them. Wave 5's Ramhorn, Dreadnaut, Scorchfire and Aimless had detail but Murk and Hazard didn't, can't speak for Flameout as I got Legends Twintwist and Slugslinger.

@  kizudarake : (29 April 2021 - 04:50 PM)

Anyone here got any g1 jet fire parts for sale?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 April 2021 - 04:12 PM)

Other than a few overly tight joints, the paints apps are my single complaint about the generations line.

@  tigerhawk : (29 April 2021 - 02:25 PM)

I just saw Legends Leo Prime now I wish Titans Return Alpha Trion had a few more paint apps for ship mode.

Indeed.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (27 April 2021 - 04:59 PM)

CORVUS: considering that reply, I'm pretty sure this was just another instance of Bass posting poorly-defined drivel as if it were profound.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 April 2021 - 04:24 PM)

Given the last year and a half or so, is it any surprise?

@  Bass X0 : (27 April 2021 - 04:12 PM)

People are snapping already it seems.

@  Kaon : (27 April 2021 - 12:15 PM)

@  CORVUS : (26 April 2021 - 07:30 PM)

I'd like to know what society he's talking about, and what qualifies as "nothing", TBH.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 April 2021 - 05:09 PM)

I don't see the point in such a poorly defined "everyone is terrible" statement. He's not complaining about any specific people or specific problems.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 April 2021 - 05:06 PM)

I do not see anything about Bass's comment that felt a need for you to attack him.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 April 2021 - 04:35 PM)

Bass: does that "everyone" include yourself or are you just trying to act like you're better than everybody without actually proving anything?

@  wonko the sane? : (26 April 2021 - 04:10 PM)

Mostly it's "oh, don't say that right now" and "better learn when to duck".

@  Bass X0 : (26 April 2021 - 04:05 PM)

There's something to be said about society when everyones just an inch away from snapping over nothing.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 April 2021 - 02:17 PM)

WalMart is a cruel mistress. Today she runneth over...tommorrow, she'll be barren as a desert.

@  -LittleAutob... : (26 April 2021 - 12:21 PM)

I love Wal-mart now- They have way more Transformers figures than Target- last night I came home with a WFC Authentic Wheeljack even though I was torn between wanting TFP Arcee and TF: The Movie Blurr, two figures I have never ever seen before-

@  Nevermore : (25 April 2021 - 06:49 AM)

Now I suddenly have a character with the name "Gorgeous Georgios" in mind.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 April 2021 - 04:00 PM)

@  Nevermore : (24 April 2021 - 01:58 PM)

Saint Georgios Day?

@  Donocropolis : (23 April 2021 - 06:59 AM)

more like Saint GORGEOUS Day.

@  tigerhawk : (23 April 2021 - 04:59 AM)

Saint Georges Day.

@  Sabrblade : (21 April 2021 - 11:55 PM)

Glenn Morshower would agree. He goes to auditions with his shoes full of syrup.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 April 2021 - 04:28 PM)

Please, maple syrup can only improve alot of content.

@  Donocropolis : (21 April 2021 - 03:33 PM)

Well, not release it into Canada, no. You'd just get maple syrup all over it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 April 2021 - 03:21 PM)

what bothers me most about Canadian rights is that, oftentimes, the rights holders for certain content don't even seem to have any interest in releasing it

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 April 2021 - 10:46 AM)

It'd be mostly the same even in a world with global copyright law, since even the shortest terms are very long.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 April 2021 - 10:39 AM)

You got me, I just want to watch cartoons without having to pirate them for once.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 April 2021 - 08:41 AM)

Also, how would copyright law standardization be enforced? I doubt any country's governments would be eager to start trade sanctions over it.

I won't lie to you guys, I want that TMNT machine! I was hoping that the other one would have the 4 player X-Men, but since it is just the fighter games, I'll pass on that one.

These guys had a booth at E3. I ended up playing a real vintage Galaga, then playing the Arcade1Up versions about an hour later, and I have to say the 2/3-size version was quite nice and an excellent substitute for the "real thing." The buttons and joystick felt solid, and the joystick was locked in to only go left-right as it should for Galaga.

 

I also tried the tabletop and wall-mount versions. The tabletop one actually still seemed sturdy, with satisfying controls, but the flat wall-mounts seemed like they had crappy screens--it was impossible to get a good angle unless it was mounted right at eye-level, which seems very inconvenient. I did notice some glitches--the trackball in the tabletop Centipede barely worked, and the wall-mount Pac-Man had a black ghost, but buying a 40-year-old vintage machine would come with those kind of risks as well.

 

I asked the reps about Ms. Pac-Man, which they said they were working to get. I also asked if there were options in the games to change settings, like the dipswitches in vintage arcade games that would start you with extra lives and change bonus values and such, and they didn't really know. If they do put out a Ms. Pac-Man, with the option to speed it up (which pretty much every extant vintage machine uses, but Namco Museum compilations never allow), then I'll probably be in for one.

I know the Mortal Kombat port has the dip switch options at least.  Not sure about any other machine.

 

With X-Men Arcade (the 4 player beat-em up), problems I foresee with ever doing that one is the two screens (yes there was also a 1 screen version) and what to put on the machine besides that.  I believe every other machine has at least two games on with it.  I don't think there is another Konami Marvel arcade game to throw on there.

The four player version was a single screen, only the large six player version was two screens.

 

Besides TMNT 1 and 2, there was Simpsons, Sunset riders, and Avengers that used that same format, so they could use one of those with X-men if they wanted. Avengers would be the best match since they are both marvel super hero beat em up games. That would give Sunset riders to Simpsons when that game eventually comes out.

I like the idea of table-top Arcade1Up's, but who decided on that yellow for Pac-Man? I'd much rather have a more authentic(-ish) black.

I was at Disney World in 1999 and I sat down with $10 to play through the whole game.  It was glorious (even if I sucked HARD at the lightsaber portions).

 

My hope would be a mixed set with Sega's Star Wars Trilogy Arcade and their version of the Pod Racer game.  Heck, if EA weren't such draconian jerks, maybe we could have gotten such a package on consoles.

Wow! I was there at the same time in July of 99 and I played through that game there too! Small world!

That was the game that i was hoping for too. I played through it about two years ago at the local mall before the arcade closed, and it was fun.

Since we were talking TMNT arcade here, I think I'll put this here.

I just happened to notice this. That television truck has the call letters KBLA.

1. TMNT takes place in New York. This is well known. Call letters beginning in K are west coast call letters. Any station in New York would start with a 'W'.

2. I actually googled KBLA. There actually is a radio (not television) station with those call letters...in Santa Monica.

So Wednesday evening, I stopped by wal-mart on the way home from work. I was taking my time and walking through the electronics section, when I hear the familiar sounds of Galaga. There, two rows over, they have an aisle with the arcade 1UP games with a very worn Galaga 1up machine, and surrounding it are three 20 year olds trying to play it. I watch them play for a minute, and after the one guy finally loses on stage two, he turns to me and says, "Do you think that you can beat the high score?"

 

At that exact moment, Over the Walmart speakers, I swear that eye of the tiger starts playing, and I am like, "Yeah, I got this."

 

Turns out that the high score was actually pretty dang high, but I almost beat it on my first try. And I got all the way to level 7 which isn't that bad considering I haven't played galaga in years.

 

It was a great moment.
