Oh my god! WFC ravage is adorable! Who's a pudgy kitty? Yes you are!

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 November 2020 - 09:50 AM)

The 86 line prevented made me reconsider a new years resolution.

@  unluckiness : (28 November 2020 - 04:33 AM)

And Devastator because I'm a sucker for combiners

@  unluckiness : (28 November 2020 - 04:32 AM)

Decided to stick with the main cast from 2007 and a few assorted ones here and there.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 November 2020 - 02:02 PM)

I said I wouldn't buy a lot, now I have seven. And at least three might be on the culling pile.

@  Maximus Ambus : (27 November 2020 - 11:44 AM)

"I'll just get one" I said now I have almost twenty Studio Series figures.

@  Sabrblade : (25 November 2020 - 12:46 PM)

There was also an evil-looking black and gray redeco of the RobotMasters toy

@  Arazyr : (25 November 2020 - 11:54 AM)

That's KIND-OF what I consider the Throne of the Primes Primal to be...

@  wonko the sane? : (25 November 2020 - 11:16 AM)

I would buy the hell out a nemesis primal...

@  Bass X0 : (25 November 2020 - 11:15 AM)

I'm surprised there's not been a Nemesis Primal given all the Nemesis Primes.

@  unluckiness : (23 November 2020 - 03:17 AM)

The real Drifts were the Windblades we made along the way

@  PlutoniumBoss : (23 November 2020 - 02:25 AM)

Drift-kun 2 Electric Boobylube

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 November 2020 - 11:36 PM)

I'm pretty sure Drift 2 was Empire of Stone.

@  Sabrblade : (22 November 2020 - 10:06 PM)

I thought people said Prime Wheeljack was Drift 2.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 November 2020 - 03:51 PM)

Windblade was Drift.2.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 02:44 PM)

Drift with boobs.

@  Rycochet : (22 November 2020 - 11:50 AM)

I can't imagine a live action movie version of Windblade being all that different from Drift. Not my thing, but not the worst thing I've ever seen.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 09:54 AM)

The thought of Movie aesthetic Windblade makes me feel sick.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:47 AM)

Though, the fact that Japanese people would pay for Windblade toys in the $30-40 range doesn't mean they'd pay however much MPs are going for now.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (22 November 2020 - 08:44 AM)

Back when I made a habit of checking Mandarake for pre-owned TFs, Windblade's toys went for surprisingly high prices. By which I mean not lower than the original price.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 November 2020 - 08:15 AM)

If she's in the next movie you might get her.

@  unluckiness : (22 November 2020 - 07:58 AM)

Japan didn't get most of the IDW comics and are the target market for MP. They basically know windblade from a few crappy pack-in comics and a show that wasn't particularly popular there. Unless they start cranking out Cyberverse MPs, it's not very likely.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 November 2020 - 04:24 AM)

Again, depends if she's popular enough in Japan to warrant it. Our view of which characters are popular is not the same as Takara's.

@  Bass X0 : (22 November 2020 - 01:53 AM)

So characters like Windblade then.

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2020 - 07:19 PM)

They're complicated and expensive to design. By necessity, they're gonna be restricted to well-known characters who are more likely to sell.

@  Bass X0 : (21 November 2020 - 07:05 PM)

I don’t think Masterpiece toys should be restricted to only show characters.

@  Rycochet : (21 November 2020 - 03:09 PM)

If she wasn't in the Sunbow cartoon, Live Action movie or Beast Wars and can't be repainted from someone else, she's not getting an MP.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 November 2020 - 12:44 PM)

They'll make their money back if they include the metal thong...

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2020 - 12:29 PM)

Is she popular enough in Japan that Takara would even try?

@  Paladin : (21 November 2020 - 11:23 AM)

depends. will that one also have a giant metal thong?

@  Bass X0 : (21 November 2020 - 11:10 AM)

Should there be a Masterpiece Windblade?

@  -LittleAutob... : (20 November 2020 - 12:46 PM)

EIGHT WORDS! THATS A RECORD! XD

@  wonko the sane? : (20 November 2020 - 09:08 AM)

So you were hired by a middle easterner! AHA!

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 November 2020 - 11:45 PM)

that's eight words

@  Bass X0 : (19 November 2020 - 03:56 PM)

"I only want to hear one word from you... The name of the guy who hired ya!"

@  Maximus Ambus : (19 November 2020 - 12:41 PM)

It's great how they reference G1 concepts like this one features the harmony from the episode Carnage in C Minor and and Slugslingers featured anti electrons from Grimlocks New Brain.

@  Steevy Maximus : (18 November 2020 - 10:01 PM)

Or at least those little story blurbs like Beast Hunters had. Especially for stuff like Selects which tend to exist in their own little side world

@  Maximus Ambus : (17 November 2020 - 04:03 PM)

I got me Legends Soundwave, Be cool if the next Generations toyline had a mini comic with the instructions.

Aw no unusual activity on my Paypal Ebay, Amazon and Netflix account in one day! All I have to do it verify on those E-Mails and I'm all set..... wait a mo, I'm not on Netflix!

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 11:56 PM)

I swear though.. The idea of "Catch up" is stupid.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:25 PM)

That's irritating, but it sounds par for the course with new hardware release. Within a year, there'll probably be some good stuff out there that does it all.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 11:23 PM)

4K/HDR switches are.. iffy.. Because most of them can't do 4K and HDR at the same time.. Or can't do 120hz... and all sorts of things the new TVs have built in, and the new consoles use...

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:18 PM)

Maybe now that the PS5's made the whole 4K thing a little more mainstream, the hardware will start becoming more common. I know that's one of the hopes the physical media community has for the 100GB discs the PS5 is going to be using. Prior to this, they were very expensive tor replicate compared to a regular blu-ray and not used very often

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:17 PM)

Up to now, there really haven't been a whole lot of 4K disc players to choose from... Samsung stopped making them altogether when they couldn't compete with the others, so your main choices are a few models of Panasonic or Sony

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 11:14 PM)

Is there no such thing as a 4K/HDR switch yet?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 November 2020 - 10:10 PM)

Which is fine.. But that still doesn't explain why they arn't putting out up to date HDMI switch boxes to get.. more money.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2020 - 09:59 PM)

My only TV with a respectable number of ports is my OLED 4K/3D, which has 4 HDMI, 2 USB 2.0s, 1 USB 3.0 and some weird proprietary thing that acts as both component and composite, depending on what you need. But it retailed for $10k when it first came out (I bought it 14 months later for less than half that). THey're going to get as many corners on less expensive sets as they can, which usually means only providing 2 HDMIs.

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.

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. 


_+-=-+DAEMON IMMORTALIS+-=-+_

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

OY! If any of you were waiting for it to drop on steam, today's the day, and to celebrate: it's 50% off! I scored the base game and the expansion pass for a few bucks less than the normal base game price. Tuck in lads!

Yeah snagged it myself on the off chance it leaves X-Box Gamepass I won't lose it if I need to make some HD space.  Might grab the DLC if I feel like it.

 

Ironbite-it's still a great game.

Downloaded and installed. Even got to play for a few hours.

 

-The gun aiming is loose and exaggerated when using a controller. I don't know if that's because I need to adjust my deadzone, or it's supposed to be that way because of the low weapon skill. I haven't peered into the options yet, but I might try my next session with mouse and keyboard (and hoooolllyyyy hug it's been a long time since I've done an actual FPS with a keyboard.) to see if that makes a difference.

 

-The game seems to swing between humour and steel like seriousness. Hawthorne was awesome, ADA is worrysome... I'm greatly enjoying it so far, but some characters are so utterly beyond caricature of cliches that it's almost painful.

 

-Graphically, it's beautiful. Halcyon is gorgeous so far. Just enough familiar to be comforting, and just enough alien to be worrying. But the human elements are what's making it scary so far. Or rather, the dehumanizing elements. I don't think they wanted the game to be quite to so close to reality when it was written... but...

 

-I just need to say this in regards to the NPC's populating the world: I hate vicar max with a passion usually reserved for politicians, and everyone else is brainwashed and hugging nuts.
