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.)

@  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.

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

Bazro.

@  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.

@  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.

@  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)

Oof-

@  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.

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

Doesn't seem like it, BUT the game is still in beta. At least this gives you a means to chuck stuff without leaving it lying around.

Name is Gorton.  Basically recreated my old treasure hunter from UO.  Went with lancing for my combat skill.  Spear would fit the character best, I think.

Yup, on Azure.

 

In the Helm region ATM.

 

Surprisingly haven't died yet, but I've been playing rather conservatively, combat wise.

 

So far I've fished a little, stolen a bone tunic from a chest in the inn and killed a bunch of rats and lurkers and was gifted a horse and copper spear by a random player.

When you see me, I'll give you a gold spear. The durability is better than copper, and it's got a massive bonus towards accuracy.

Decided to hit the Helm graveyard.  Man, zombies hit hard.  Probably because my armor stinks and I didn't put any skill points into armor skills at all when I started.  Barely escaped with my life, lol.  Think I'm gonna stick to the sewers for a bit longer.

Yeah, the zombies are wicked strong for some reason. Skirt the outside edge, outside the fieldstone wall, and try to bait the skells. Much easier to kill.

Deciphered my first treasure map.  Points to the Ceyr Pond area.  Not sure if I can handle the mobs that will spawn when it pops, though.

I've got some tattered maps and a tattered SOS if you want. I probably won't ever use them.

Sure.  I'll try and let you know when I'll be on again.  Could be a few days, unfortunately.

 

Apparently the SOS's are pretty 'risk free' aside from the random wandering mob/PK'er, depending on the area.  Just have to remember to bring my lockpicks.  The maps are a bit trickier.

Either way, I got a bunch for ya. Even scored another one tonight when I killed a rat. Also: killed a bunch of rats with 3 eyes on them... so I wonder just whats in the sewer water.

 

Anywho: Some useful things for folks to know if they decide to play the game!

 

-Click and hold the mouse wheel, then move the mouse to rotate the camera.

-Push alt and left click a corpse to auto-loot it.

-Double clicking an animal with no loot on it will automatically harvest the animal, but you'll still need to loot the corpse for the new stuff.

-Push "J" to get the game to show you the health bars of all the creatures on your screen. Yes, even the ones you shouldn't be able to see.

-Push "Z" to get the camera to move back to the default location.

-Push the "." key if you suddenly find autorun turned on.

-When the game gives you a "cannot 'action'" bar, you can do OTHER actions. Or you can do that particular action but only to someone else.

-The game doesn't fold money over to the next denomination when you collect the stuff from creatures in the world. But it will adjust when you deposit it in the bank.

-There is no skill to harvest resources (plants, skins, meat.) in the world. It's an automatic success every time, so carry your hunting knife.

-Hostile animals will sometimes run up to you, then run away. I don't know if they think they're playing with you, or it's a glitch. But once they hit their start position, they will return to you and actually attack.

-You can chop up human NPC and player corpses. But unlike UO, all you get is a generic head you can use as decoration. Might be part of a bounty thing, I'm currently unsure.

-So far: torches don't burn out. So hotkey it to see in dark places. You can also use a torch while using a 1 handed weapon, most tools, and a shield.

-Weapon skills don't determine damage, just frequency to hit. Get a weapon with a high "+ accuracy".

-Magic skills do not determine damage, just chance of a successful cast. But the reagent is burned even if you fail. Carry lots.

-There is currently no means to repair weapons or armor: Don't get overly attached to stuff, and take the warnings that things are almost broken seriously.

-Points on interest (mines, dungeons, towns and the like.), once you've found them, will be on your large map ("M" key.) with a dot.

Ok, after trying a treasure map, my current char just can't handle combat at all. Killed in seconds by the two goblins that spawned to protect the treasure. I'm thinking maybe I should have gone combat first and picked up treasure hunting on the side.

 

Gonna roll a new warrior build and keep Gorton around for fishing/cooking, I think.  He can handle SOS stuff just fine since mobs don't spawn on those.

You could train him up. The sewers are usually good to get to 30-35, and then you just grab missions from the dispatcher. Also: Get a + accuracy weapon. The higher the better. Makes all the difference in the world. Oh, and armor. If you use heavy armor, I can hook you up with some + defense gear.

It was an eventful night. I did some dispatches, and wound up killing some trolls along the way (which were easier than their size leads you to believe.) Cranked out a bunch of craft orders (small ones with my banked surplus materials.), fabbed a new gold warhammer (23 dam,+74% and +14 accuracy.), and then decided to go raid the big helm bandit camp. Made some friends along the way too and almost an entire gold.

I messed around with an alternate build on a separate character to figure out how I'd like to change Gorton.  Think I'm gonna drop lancing and picking up slashing instead.  Weapon swings at a faster rate despite the slight decrease in max damage and seems to fit my actual play style more.

Wish I could answer that. Saw it myself while testing a possible slashing build. Thought it was some sort of arena or something, but I couldn't find a way inside.

The arena is actually south-ish of the dome. It's one of the spots I found while actually exploring the village.

 

Oh yeah, before I forget again: am I alone in thinking this game could be modded into the fallout mmo the fans actually deserve?

Depending on how the modding tools work, I think it could. Information on modding the game seem to be rather sparse and somewhat contradictory, though. Doesn't help that 90% of said information isn't from citadel studios directly, though.
