Jellystone. We're going to be plunged into a decade of poor animation. Fortunately we've been led by bad cartoon characters for years so we won't notice much difference.

@  -LittleAutob... : (30 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

x-x when in vehicle mode we can travel much F A R T H E R-

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

Because despite the fact that we can travel around the world in the time it takes to get a good nights sleep and a couple of meals: people rarely wander more than 25 miles away from home for the duration of their lives.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I don't know how many days that trip takes - especially while sightseeing - but explaining they're 3936 kilometers (2445 miles) apart gives an idea, paradoxically because it is too large to easily picture.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:44 PM)

Aye.  When I catch lay people discussing miles and not how long the trip takes, it is in an attempt to stress how far away something is... like NYC to LA.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

But I can imagine 45 *minutes* easily.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

I can imagine a mile, it's a distance I've run. I can't really imagine 45 miles.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:19 PM)

I think there's also an element of the thing where things that are much bigger than us all blur together.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:49 AM)

If you're not, then you're more concerned with how long it takes.  Actual distance doesn't tell you that very well.  Besides traffic and road conditions, you'll need to know what kind of driving (city/interstate/rural/etc.).

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:47 AM)

Distance matters if you're being paid by the mile.

@  TM2-Megatron : (30 June 2020 - 11:44 AM)

Canadians are the same way, for the most part. If you're driving somewhere far, especially, it helps you plan out the day more than a distance in KM would.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:42 AM)

We use the time it takes to get someplace because that is what is relevant to us.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Because even we can't figure out miles half the time.

@  Paladin : (30 June 2020 - 09:54 AM)

it's a big country with a lot of empty space. between our citizens' ears.

@  Bass X0 : (30 June 2020 - 09:52 AM)

Why do most Americans measure distance by hours of driving?

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 07:26 PM)

And as a result the world's lone blu-ray release of the film, an Australian disc that came out 7 years ago, now goes for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Thanks Disney.

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 06:21 PM)

Well, they censored Daryl Hannah's butt in Splash :rolleyes

@  Paladin : (29 June 2020 - 05:43 PM)

maybe New Mutants is too bad even for D+.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 June 2020 - 05:00 PM)

X-Men films are coming to Disney+ next month. But will they censor Hugh Jackman's butt?

@  -LittleAutob... : (29 June 2020 - 12:44 PM)

Pft.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 11:59 AM)

Behold! Night Strike Galvatron!

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 09:53 AM)

I will grant you a recolored body, and recolored troops to command.

@  Cybersnark : (29 June 2020 - 09:47 AM)

I don't want to be reissued. This body sucks, I wanna be updated.

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 09:43 AM)

I definitely don't intend to be reissued. Nobody would buy me.

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 08:31 AM)

will anybody else attempt to be reissued?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 June 2020 - 07:51 AM)

*Gasp* Decepticons re-writing history to serve their own needs?!?!

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 05:48 AM)

The whole point of the DJD is that they're fanatical Megatron fanboys (especially Tarn) to the point of having their own headcanon taking priority of the actual canon, simply speaking.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 04:01 AM)

They didn't know the war was over until later. And then they denied it anyway.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 June 2020 - 10:47 PM)

"He's comin' right for us!"

@  Telly : (28 June 2020 - 08:40 PM)

was that even still in effect once the war ended?

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 June 2020 - 06:51 PM)

According to Roberts, soldiers can ignore the order to spare Whirl if he's directly threatening them. But mostly the DJD were out of their heads on Nuke and not really caring much at the time.

@  Xaaron : (28 June 2020 - 06:41 PM)

Also, they were hopped up on goofballs at the time.

I've had three of these machines. The only issue I had (if you even consider it an issue ) is that the earlier waves didn't come with a plastic overlay for the control panel. This led to some smudges like shown below.

 

i1Q01c2.jpg

 

But that was just cosmetic and the later waves (including TMNT) comes with a plastic overlay to prevent just such a thing from happening. 

 

My TMNT cabinet came from the back storage room (by an employee who made it clear he was from another department and needed to get back and I felt like saying that I came there to spend $400 so either get someone who can help or go get the damn game but decided to be nice so he grudgingly went to go get it thanks for the hugging friendly service!).  So it wasn't were any children could get to it. My Street Fighter was mail-order, so I was just glad it was still on the porch when I got home. So of course I didn't have any problems with those.

 

My Final Fight Cabinet was off the shelf, though. I didn't have any issues with that one either.

Well, it wasn't long.  The controls for Leonardo in the machine my Wal-Mart has on display works again, but sadly, it seems someone stole the balls on the top of three of the joysticks.  The only one with a ball on it is the joystick used for controlling Michelangelo.

Suspect is approximately one foot tall, green, unarmed and extremely dangerous. Last seen in the company of a fugitive bounty hunter of unknown ethnicity. The pair may have been heading for the Dagobah system.

So apparently, Arcade1up is going to be making some digital pinball machines. They are supposed to be shown off at CES so I guess we will find out soon.

Digital pinball is all well and good. But tables are a dime a dozen on consoles. If I were to get a pinball machine, I'd want it to be physical.

Those aren't really games I care about tbh. Seeing as how I already have three cabinets, one of which had to be moved to a separate room because of space, I'm not sure what game it would take to get me to buy another one of these. I love these things, but they are pricey.

Yeah, I would want a physical one, but a Virtual Pinball cab would be neat to have too if it is done right.

Actually, that's an interesting idea. I don't think I've ever seen a virtual pinball machine, like a nice angled box with flipper buttons on the side of a big vertical screen. I've played many great pinball video games (from Pinball Fantasies in the 90s through the Williams Collection on recent consoles), but they never feel exactly right due to the horizontal television/PC screen and buttons mapped to standard controllers or keyboards. A dedicated machine could be really cool. 

 

On a quick Google search, it looks like they do exist, I just haven't seen them before. Either way, it'd be neat to see what Arcade1Up comes up with.

I'm more shocked that they managed to get to make a NBA Jam arcade cabinet containing both NBA Jam versions and NBA Hangtime, and even going as far as to have online play enabled.

New reveals for the fall!  Ms Pac-Man, Big Buck Hunter (their first light gun game) and...the Marvel VS games!

Unfortunately, it seems like there will be two versions, each having a SLIGHTLY different mix of games, plus Capcom's SNES X-Men and Marvel Superheroes games for some reason?

 

I'll wait for me details, but it seems like they should have just done the first 3 vs games in one cabinet, rather than spreading them across two with a couple extra games I don't think anyone really wants.  Or make people double dip on games from the first release.

The Marvel VS Capcom cabinet has the first three VS games. Which kind of sucks if you want the X-Men VS Street Fighter as you get X-Men: CotA rather than Marvel Superheroes VS Street Fighter, which is only available on the MvC set.

It is odd that they decided to include a console game. I'm not sure what that's about. The good news I took from that whole thing though is that they're starting to do light gun games. I don't really care about the Buck Hunter games, but now I have more hope for the possibility of an Area 51 cabinet.

True, but if I had to make a guess, X-Men Mutant Apocalypse and Marvel Super Heroes:  War Of The Gems were added as a bit of a bonus for each cabinet.

We were talking earlier about possible issues with these arcade games. I ran into my first issue. The attack button for Raphael is not working right. Like sometimes it'll register and sometimes it won't. Now, out of three machines, this is the first issue I've had. And to be fair, Raph and Leo are my most used characters. So it might've just been normal wear and tear. Still, it is an issue.

Can you swap out the buttons and see if it is an issue with that or if its something else?

 

 

I don't know how the cab is designed.
