Twitter's revamp is so dumb. Nowadays, even when I am logged out of my account, right-clicking an image on Google Chrome won't let me access a URL to easily get the image's full size. That functionality was so useful!

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 January 2020 - 10:01 PM)

But when was the last time you saw a major retailer (since TRU) actually allot shelf space for a Transformers Titan? Or the Vintage Collection Poe X-Wing? There's clearly some sort of disparity between "girls" and "boys" toys that give companies justification to create $100+ items in the girls segment in FAR greater frequency than in boys.

@  fourteenwings : (25 January 2020 - 12:56 AM)

"how expensive they were" Tell that to L.O.L. O.M.G. and the $129 Amazing Surprise (I mean I guess when it comes to the toy aisle Power Rangers isn't a juggernaut like L.O.L.)

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 January 2020 - 09:18 PM)

I think the big reason we didn't see the actual combining Zords at retail was because of how expensive they were. It would cost $100 to get enough of them to make a Megazord, $160+ if you want the Ultrazord. Or parents could just get the dang Ultrazord for $40 even if it didn't combine.

@  Steevy Maximus : (24 January 2020 - 09:11 PM)

Because they are "kids toys" not "collector toys"

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 03:27 PM)

1) I don't have Target. 2) can't go into my walmart. I'm surprised Hasbro won't sell the toys on Pulse

@  Bass X0 : (24 January 2020 - 02:43 PM)

I dreamt my phone was ringing and woke up to answer it.

@  Sabrblade : (24 January 2020 - 02:05 PM)

The Lightning Collection figures, the smaller normal-sized Beast Morphers Ranger/enemy/Beast-Bot figures, the role-play morpher and weapon toys, and the simplistic non-combining megazord toys have all been very easy to find at various Targets and Walmarts. It's only been the actual combining Beast Morphers zord toys (which are bizarrely being sold individually this time) that have been hard to find in stores.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 01:49 PM)

Thought I do question Hasbro's almost reluctance to have the toys available anywhere.

@  Paladin : (24 January 2020 - 01:44 PM)

i've been trying to sell mine for weeks...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I hadn't opened mine yet, but from what I've seen, the general agreement is that the Beast Morpher zords are much better than Bandais.

@  ThunderWear : (24 January 2020 - 11:16 AM)

I'm guessing if they're going to do anything on the level of Legacy Zords, it's being discussed behind NDAs at Toy Fair

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 January 2020 - 10:38 AM)

Lightning Collection is good, and they're taking their sweet time on making Zords that are better than Bandai's Zords.

@  ThunderWear : (24 January 2020 - 10:34 AM)

So, what's the general PR fandom consensus of the Hasbro run of PR so far? I pretty much stepped out of the community after I got the Bandai Legacy zords I wanted.

@  Paladin : (24 January 2020 - 08:46 AM)

that would require someone to BUY Hasbro PR toys...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 07:17 AM)

Well hopefully see some cool PR stuff. Wish BBTS sold Hasbro PR toys.

@  fourteenwings : (24 January 2020 - 07:01 AM)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (24 January 2020 - 06:32 AM)

When is NY TF?

@  fourteenwings : (23 January 2020 - 11:43 PM)

I don't know about Hasbro's general policy but I know everybody was on lockdown for Frozen II, which included both LEGO and Hasbro. Plus, I'm guessing everybody is holding off PR for NY Toy Fair? Overall, it's best to remember that Toy Fairs are for buyers, not fans.

@  fourteenwings : (23 January 2020 - 11:41 PM)

LEGO has been doing this for ages, including sending cease and desists when outlets get leaked images.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:42 PM)

And then they ended up selling off the brand, so I guess I wasn't the only one.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:41 PM)

Last time a toy brand I followed tightened down on toy fair and all the invited guests posted glowing reviews of what they saw, I ended up being disappointed as heck.

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 January 2020 - 10:34 PM)

JediNews UK basically said they got a walkthrough of Lego's showcase...but were legally bound to NOT talk about anything, much less take pics.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 10:24 PM)

I wondered why I had seen basically nothing newsworthy from the event

@  Steevy Maximus : (23 January 2020 - 10:14 PM)

Word is that Hasbro and Lego have their UK Toy Fair stuff on MAJOR lockdown. Full NDAs and everything.

@  ThunderWear : (23 January 2020 - 09:28 PM)

Seeing people say the $0.99 + $20 shipping item is cheaper than the $19.99 + free shipping item and getting tons of likes for it... I just don't know anymore.

@  Telly : (23 January 2020 - 09:11 PM)

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 January 2020 - 06:58 PM)

@  Benbot : (22 January 2020 - 04:27 PM)

There will be no UBI, people will just live in a ditch while they celebrate owning the libs.

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2020 - 03:24 PM)

In 50 years, retail will be dead because all stores are staffless fully automated operations controlled by Amazon. The UBI will be less than a fifth of what it actually costs to live after two decades of cuts and.a steadfast refusal to match inflation.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 January 2020 - 02:55 PM)

In fifty years retail will be a thing of the past through robots, printers and Universal Basic Income.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (21 January 2020 - 11:16 AM)

Big retailers just don't want money anymore, so let's not give them any,

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2020 - 10:00 AM)

Walmart just needs to go bankrupt already.

@  ThunderWear : (20 January 2020 - 07:19 AM)

They didn't put the 35th anniversary stuff back out until after new year. I'm no retail expert, but I feel like having stock on the shelf is better than the back. Especially toys at christmas time.

@  ThunderWear : (20 January 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Yeah, my local walmart took away the 35th anniversary endcap weeks before Christmas and left the Transformer section empty well past Christmas.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 04:44 AM)

Mine only has the 35th Anniversary Voyagers. A whole lot of them.

@  Telly : (19 January 2020 - 11:35 PM)

just be happy your walmart even stocks voyagers. mine doesnt

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 January 2020 - 08:53 PM)

You should be able to set eBay to display in your local currency, although personally I like to know the actual currency the item is listed in so I know if I need to account for forex fees or not

Let's see, a few more:

 

Mighty No 9 is a perfectly fine game.

 

Okami is pretty, but a hot mess gameplay wise. It's also not 'Zelda on PS2' I wish people would stop saying that.

 

Resident Evil is better as an action/horror game then flat out horror.

 

The stamina system of Dark Souls and similar games is crap and not only needs to be retired, but shouldn't have ever been used in the first place.

 

MegaMan X7 is the best in the se- HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

I hated most of the characters in Xenoblade Chronicles 2, especially the villains who tried to shoehorn in some sympathy right at the end. I ended up skipping most of the backstory cutscenes after a while.
Also Vandham.

Spoiler

Also the entire game was basically "win easily in the actual fight, lose in the following cutscene". Every damn time.

I actually don't hate Ashley. Sure her xenophobia was hardly endearing and she was a petulant ass for the first part of the third game. Butshe does come around, she does drunk cute and her commitment to her family is commendable. I certainly have no desire to kill her off. And at least she's not a dull as that boring twit...Kaden...Kaiden...starts with a 'K'.

I also like Miranda. Sure she's a stuck up Cerberus cheerleader boshtet...but she also goes to great lengths to protect her sister and she did bring down her fathe5 and planted the homing beacon that lead Sheperd to The Illusive Mans hideout. Basically, if not for her, Shep never would've been able to takt out Cerberus and find the Catalyst.

I never really cared for Mario 64.

While interesting, the Metroid Prime series are not as fun as the 2D Metroids.

As much as I enjoy the DLC and updates, Final Fantasy XV was just fine in its Vanilla form.

Final Fantasy XIII was actually fun...in some places.

But it definitely did not need sequels.

I kinda like microtransactions.

Yeah, I kinda agree.

 

If that and DLC keeps inflation from bringing up the prices of games, I am fine with it, so long as they are not game breaking to be without.

 

Also, I cannot play a FPS without the vertical controls being inverted.

I actually kinda agree with this. The gameplay was actually pretty good (aside from the authorization function. The story was just a big stinking pile of hot garbage. Unfortunately, they made separating the story from the game nearly impossible.

Well no the game would have contrived some other way, even if you did have the option of shoving her out an airlock half way through Mass Effect 2.

 

That being said, I would probably have been better disposed towards her if not for the camera mounted a foot behind her backside that the game insisted on switching to whenever she was talking.

While I understand where you're coming from with that, I think that's more the developers being pervs than any character flaw with Miranda. So I'm not sure I can hold it against her.

Skyrim sucked.

 

Elders Scrolls IV: Oblivion is when the franchise peaked, I feel.

 

Owned Skyrim since Day One, have yet to finish the main quest, any DLC, or even the Thieves Guild. Morrowind is a very lackluster experience now-a-days (Especially if you use a mod that modernizes the draw distance and realize how tiny it is).

 

Oblivion remains one of only two games I've ever 100% completed. I really ought to go back now that it's been a decade.
