Think of it positively, maybe your face just has optional no-slip surfaces

@  Maximus Ambus : (27 January 2020 - 05:38 PM)

I have dyspraxia so use a electric trimmer, it's never smooth. NEVER!

@  Benbot : (27 January 2020 - 12:52 PM)

don't you hate it when you shave but miss a whisker and it bugs you all day long and you try to yank it out but you can't because it's too short to get a hold of but your hand keeps finding it whenever you touch your face?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 January 2020 - 11:17 PM)

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)

February 22nd through 25th, I feel like it was earlier last year...

@  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)

if you havent already, y'all check your walmarts clearance aisle. i found siege six shot for $5. course, it could just be my walmart, but never hurts to look

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 January 2020 - 08:42 AM)

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

Bold of you all to assume we won't wipe ourselves out in 50 years.

@  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,

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 04:12 PM)

This place is a madhouse, feels like being cloned.

@  Maximus Ambus : (20 January 2020 - 03:38 PM)

I took one step beyond the outer limits to the twilight zone.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 10:19 AM)

All retail is basically the same.

@  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)

Figures that Walmart finally restocks Studio Voyagers...with Wave ONE

They've got a fix already apparently, not that it's much comfort to people who list their data already. 

 

On the bright(ish) side... at least it's a franchise where starting over is a routine and expected part of the game anyway...? Yeah, doesn't really help.

See this is the kinda crap that puts me off getting the "quote superior gaming experience" PC woes like this they pay out the nose to have high end rigs to run theses games and every. single. time. a game drops there something that makes playing them bad every. single. time.

 

I popped my disk into my PS4(OG one mind you) and not seen a single issue game runs fine, looks good that vault monster had some impressive effects and that right there is why Ill stick to consoles I put a game in and it works..no probs no launcher no issues a hassle free gaming experience...thats all I need or want

 

Consoles for life and you will never change my mind about it

Made it to level 33 and Chapter 15.

I also got confirmation on what I thought about Zane.

Spoiler

 

Coming right off the heels of Far Cry 5, I was a little worried about the whole "cult" thing in another game so soon, but it doesn't really bother me now.

I do like getting to see the larger Borderlands universe and characters.

 

Oh, and getting e-mails from Mr. Torgue makes my day because he often gives me pretty epic weapons.  I have an explodey pistol (blue) that shoots for 271 damage.  It's great for clearing Ratch, especially since my Torgue shotgun that uses 2 ammo per shot was chewing through my ammo reserves.  I feel like enemies take a lot of more rounds before going down.  In Borderlands 2,I used to just roll with a sniper rifle and obliterate anything that wasn't a proper boss.  Now, I'm buying ammo from Marcus regularly, and if there is more than 1 x Badass in the area, I'm pretty much going into immediate Fight for your Life mode.  I once walked into a group of three, and it did not turn out well for me.

Yeah, the first Annoited boss was a nightmare because he ended up killing all of the fodder villains around him, and even though I got him down to like 20% health, he put me in Fight for your Life, and of course I couldn't kill him in 10 seconds or less.  Then he proceeded to obliterate me numerous times because the fodder guys hadn't respawned yet.

 

I beat the second vault.  FYI - the Vault Creature takes a lot of pepper so make sure you bring your patience.  The aftermath played out from there pretty much as expected.  It's weird to see a plot where the villains are brilliant, and the heroes are morons trying to somehow succeed in spite of themselves.

 

Oh, and once you kill 100 enemies with a single manufacturer's type of weapon, you'll get an e-mail from that manufacturer.  I've gotten ones from Torgue, Jakobs, Vladof, Hyperion, and Dahl.

Not a big fan of Atlas, Maliwan, or COV.  And I just haven't found a good Tediore weapon yet.

Under the "Social" menu. On PC, you hit f4 to open the "Social Screen and you'll have messages from various weapons vendors or characters for completing in-game goals or milestones.

Or the regular pause menu if you're on console (not the Echo device menu).

It's the single most counter-intuitive place to put it because when I saw the "Social" menu, I figured it applied exclusively to multiplayer.

 

Carnivoria was a lot of fun.  Except the end boss.  Oh man, that was frustrating until I was able to pick up the pattern.

 

I ended up with this shockwave shotgun (orange) from Maliwan.  It's the first Maliwan weapon that I've liked.  I obliterated a lot of the lower-leveled creatures with it.  It's funny how you can be following the story mission, you're in the mid-30 range, and all the baddies are upper 20s.  Then you make it to the next map, and they're all mid-upper 30s.  I made it to Level 38 and am calling it until next weekend.

I dunno.  She's pretty annoying, too.

Plus, I feel like they kind of glossed over certain things being completely her fault for not doing what she was told.

 

Maybe she'll save the day in the end and redeem herself.

But I'm also totes okay with her getting died.

 

Rhys is kind of derpy, but he doesn't bother me all that much.  Vaughn though.  Yeah, I get it that he's a caricature, but it almost feels like he's trying too hard rather than having that kind of dark humour/satire/bizarre feel that most Borderlands characters have.  The feel/writing of characters and even NPCs feels very different than Borderlands 2.  I mean, even Tina isn't striking a chord.  I normally find her antics pretty entertaining, but now I just think she's a bit annoying.

 

Oh, and because I forgot to mention it before - does anyone else find the "Siren in your head using a real person's images' really kind of out of place?  I remember Angel doing something similar, but Lilith's IRL model (or whatever) just really did not match the character and looked weird to me.
