Hey you, get moving, it's not too far, you're looking good so come as you are. Hey you, you never know what you'll see, when it's through that door with the 73.

@  Rycochet : (11 July 2020 - 01:10 PM)

Hey you, get ready, get on your feet. Get into gear and hit the street.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 12:46 PM)

I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 07:37 AM)

Trypticon so scared my Primus figure he turned into a ball.

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (08 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 08:34 AM)


@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

Bossk Saw

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

Bass XD

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@Trpodeca :( :(

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Thats what a gray rock is? Then I'm not one.

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (06 July 2020 - 11:18 AM)


@  Maximus Ambus : (05 July 2020 - 01:10 AM)

I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 July 2020 - 10:19 PM)

If I had a sarcasm powered mouth.. ooohh waaaiiittt...

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 05:01 PM)


@  Bass X0 : (04 July 2020 - 02:56 PM)

"If I had sarcasm-powered legs, I'd do a happy dance...!"

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 July 2020 - 02:39 PM)

The real clones were the friends we made along the way.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:47 AM)

(And the 0th anniversary of the last time I couldn't do math.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Oh the end of the Ottoman Empire of course.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 10:14 AM)

*ahem* 4th of July....

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 08:14 AM)

Nothing of importance has happened before, and nothing of importance will happen again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 08:12 AM)

Nothing of importance happened today.

@  Telly : (03 July 2020 - 09:54 PM)

i want a "i survived 'rona and all i got was this lousy t-shirt"

Felt more like poking the Fallout bear, honestly.

So the game has a release date...a lot sooner then anyone expected.


October 25th.


The problem, the latest trailer feels more Borderlands then anything. And with Borderlands 3 literally just having been released, I think Obsidian's timing is off on this one.

Well no one's told steam: cause my wish list still says "coming soon: 2020".


Edit: not that I have a problem with a "borderlands free borderlands" right now. Activision is currently a little too involved in china for my tastes.

Last I knew they had a timed exclusive thing with the epic game store, so both dates may well be true.

If you have the XBox gamepass this is included. I got it downloaded and its definitely going after the Fallout feel. It's like Fallout in space without the game breaking bugs. At least I haven't found any so far.

console game pass and also on the PC game pass.

Bonus, the PC game pass is in Beta right now, so first month is only 1$.

i love this game...so...damn...much!


i haven't enjoyed a game of this type since Fallout 3. I know this is basically the same crew that did New Vegas, and while i enjoyed that game (though not even remotely as much as i did F3), THIS is the kind of gaming experience i look for. For me, New Vegas took the fun out of F3 and replaced it with needless difficulty...even when played on Normal. But Outer Worlds has just the right level of balance. Nothing has frustrated me, annoyed me, or disappointed me. Ive got around 30ish hours of playtime and the constant companion ive had with me that entire time? A little thing I like to call FUN!


The first few days I spent with F3 are some of the most enjoyable and memorable gaming experiences ive ever had. The first few days I spent with New Vegas, on the other hand, are memorable for the opposite reasons. This game definitely falls in line next to F3...It's only now, the closer I get to the end-game, that i'm feeling just a tad too challenged...BUT I can forgive said challenges. Because much like the last game, CONTROL, I put this much time into, they aren't even remotely detracting from the experience.


I think my biggest complaints so far have been the seeming lack of bits, the want / need for stronger / better armor, and feeling like there aren't enough opportunities to gain Perk Points. The bits thing is mostly my fault though, because I keep using them to Tinker with weapons / armor, and that is definitely one serious way to drain them. As for the Perk Points I dislike only being given access to them every 2 levels, and while I think the random event thing (like robophobia or plasma damage, permanently disabling you while giving you a perk) is a good idea, I would just like more access.


I LOVE the Time Dilation gimmick. I do wish it was a little more like VATS, allowing for the ability to lock on and aim at specific body parts and more than one enemy...but I think for this game, it's just right. My only hope is that in any potential sequels they don't tamper with it and screw it up. I like the enemy variety, theres just enough of them to make sense, without there being a crazy amount.


I also REALLY, REALLY, LOVE that there aren't frustrating "Boss" encounters. That was one of my only real complaints with CONTROL, The bosses. The Fridge one, The Mold one, they took just the tiniest shine off of something that was so close to perfect. I also like that while there ARE large and powerful variants of the regular aliens / monsters...Like the Mega-Queen Mantipillars and Raptidon Colossus...they never seem insurmountable as long as you have the right weapons for you and your Companions. And there again lies another point where, even though I know these dudes did New Vegas and not 3, where the game gives me those sweet, sweet Fallout 3 vibes...it reminds me of fighting Deathclaws in 3 vs NV (or even 4)...Large, powerful, scary things that are tough fights(3), but not "throw the controller through the tv tough" (New Vegas).


I just can't wait to finish this game and start a new one making totally different choices. 


I see behind a thousand lies that you try to hide

I bleed inside: you left your knife but I'm still alive
I...love the way you kill me
I love the way you watch me die

Life or death a bullet to the chest
I'd do it again...
Just when I think I've cut you out
You come with open arms to drag me down
