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

@  ThunderWear : (19 January 2020 - 09:27 AM)

I snagged Rainmakers for half off.  They make me want jolly ranchers.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 04:21 PM)

I was using my account on another comptuer, and oddly it seemed to default to $US rather than converting it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 January 2020 - 02:02 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

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:34 AM)

I'd also like to take the opportunity to say I despise Ebay for showing the list prices in US money.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:23 AM)

Well there is an overpriced limited edition, but I don't want to pay that much money for it.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:21 AM)

Well great. The one Usagi Yojimbo volume I don't have and it's out of stock.

@  Rycochet : (17 January 2020 - 06:15 PM)

I both love and hate that the Alien franchise seems to have had more luck finding a niche as a line of children's toys than it has at producing worthwhile films.

@  Donocropolis : (17 January 2020 - 06:35 AM)

I've seen them on the shelves at Walmart. They're pretty great looking retro Aliens toys. https://www.walmart....-Vary/934039489

@  fourteenwings : (17 January 2020 - 01:11 AM)

IIRC somebody on here mentioned an unbranded Alien toy a couple of weeks ago? It seems like it was actually part of a collection for the Alien movie series by Lanard. Mattel's making some stuff too.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 January 2020 - 03:12 PM)

Is it really a worse name than say, HMS Spanker?

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 January 2020 - 02:36 PM)

'Boaty McBoatface' was a actual thing?! Wow.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (14 January 2020 - 02:00 PM)

Might be worth bringing back this thread.

@  ThunderWear : (14 January 2020 - 01:53 PM)

Of course I had the idea to download all the pdfs like a week too late. Anyone got an archive?

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 January 2020 - 12:48 PM)

The Collector Club is dead. Seems like it all came down shortly after New Year

@  ThunderWear : (13 January 2020 - 11:06 PM)

I can't get to the collector club website. anyone else? I was literally going to download all the fiction to finish reading.

@  Maximus Ambus : (13 January 2020 - 04:50 AM)

Even in fallout, they never carpet bombed with nukes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (12 January 2020 - 12:43 PM)

I hope the stockpiled nuclear weapons of the US and Russia are accounted for then.

@  Nevermore : (12 January 2020 - 12:22 PM)

Geez. 1760 (!) bombs from World War II that had not detonated and were still armed have been found. That's only the numbers for the federal state of Germany I live in, and only for the first three quarters of 2019. For all of 2018, the total number was 2811 (!!) bombs.

@  CVReynolds : (11 January 2020 - 11:05 PM)

I've been wanting a Tarantulas that turns into a more realistic tarantula for a long time. Maybe Takara will someday do a Masterpiece, which would be neat. But I really want to see a modernized look like in the IDW comics.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (11 January 2020 - 09:43 PM)

We need more Waspinators.. and rattraps.

@  Ashley : (11 January 2020 - 07:09 PM)

I'm on board with that

@  Dekafox : (11 January 2020 - 06:17 PM)

What I'm hearing is we need Cyberverse Waspinator

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 January 2020 - 01:27 AM)

He's appeared across more branding changes than Waspinator, so maybe it's more the other way around.

@  Ashley : (10 January 2020 - 12:01 AM)

is C3PO the Waspinator of Star Wars? he'll live forever, because it's funny for him to suffer

@  Sabrblade : (09 January 2020 - 11:52 PM)

He's still waiting for them to be funny.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 January 2020 - 10:35 PM)

Why?

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 04:02 PM)

I've been watching South Park, Family Guy and The Simpsons with a straight face for a decade now.

@  wonko the sane? : (09 January 2020 - 03:18 PM)

If that's what it takes to get you to take the medication, sure.

@  Bass X0 : (09 January 2020 - 01:52 PM)

If I go crazy, will you still call me Superman?

@  fourteenwings : (09 January 2020 - 11:37 AM)

I mean, it is easier to protect HDDs, and you can retransfer the data over and over forever?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 January 2020 - 10:45 AM)

Not in this comparison. He's making his own files, so they're (presumably) not restricted by DRM, so he can copy them as many times as he wants. It's potentially more reliable in the long term than hoping the specific copies you originally bought never accrue any damage for the rest of your life.

@  Echowarrior : (09 January 2020 - 10:44 AM)

I prefer physical copies too. Easier to protect something physical and tangible.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 09:55 AM)

I prefer having physical copies.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 January 2020 - 08:56 AM)

I have plenty of physical media I turn into digital media for my plex server. Just finished ripping Ultra Seven

@  fourteenwings : (09 January 2020 - 08:50 AM)

Isn't the general consensus that we're supposed to be over physical media anyways?

@  Paladin : (09 January 2020 - 08:17 AM)

i still don't own a Blu-Ray player.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 January 2020 - 07:35 AM)

My current TV works just fine. I don't see a need to upgrade. And by the time I do, the Next Big Thing will probably be out anyway.

@  Benbot : (09 January 2020 - 03:58 AM)

Me neither. I'm no rebel, though. I'm just poor.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 03:38 AM)

I haven't gone 4K yet, I'm a rebel.

@  Ashley : (07 January 2020 - 11:50 PM)

the comic theme is amazing

@  Bass X0 : (07 January 2020 - 03:18 PM)

Sounds like Victor Caroli but I’m not sure.

@  Bass X0 : (07 January 2020 - 02:35 PM)

Should I recognise the narrator of the Mutant Hunt trailer?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 January 2020 - 04:30 AM)

I got me Titans Return Blaster, now watch them unveil Earthrise Blaster and Generations Perceptor, a retool of Titans Blaster.

@  ThunderWear : (06 January 2020 - 10:22 PM)

I recently switched to to the comic theme here at the Allspark and I'm so happy I just want to look at it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (06 January 2020 - 08:12 AM)

Can you not take so many lines to say anything?

@  fourteenwings : (06 January 2020 - 07:47 AM)

Iunno, maybe people having unique pronunciations of things re:how they understand language makes the world a more colourful place, rather than one where we correct every seemingly grievous error?

Glad to see the PS4 BC. I really hope it is also PS3/2/1 BC compatable.

I would also love some uprezzing for PS1 and 2 games. But I seriously doubt that'll be a thing.

I can understand lacking PS3 compatibility, even PS2 for that matter.  But there is ZERO reason I shouldn't be able to play my digital PSOne or PSP titles on the system, not with what home-brew people have been able to accomplish on platforms a fraction of the power of the PS4, much less what the PS5 should be able to do.  And that includes uprezzing and similar features to make the games look better.

If the PS3 and PS4 could emulate PS2 with little to no problem *proved by hackers* there is no reason the PS5 shouldn't be able to handle it.

Because heaven forbid a company should learn from their mistakes and simply do better the next time. If they'd simply used the NTSC versions of games, that alone would've made the PS1 classic more popular. If they'd been more careful in their game choice, they could've had an absolute hit.

I don't care so much about backwards compatibility. I mean, it's nice to have those options, but I already have a PS2, 3 and 4. So my bases are already covered. What I would like though would to have PSP games on the PSN network. I would love to give Crisis Core and Dissidia Duodecim another try.

Watch them not even put an optical drive in it at all, making it only "backward compatible" with games you bought digitally.

I was thinking of upgrading to a ps4 pro..   I assume the 5 will be native 4k and I should probably wait for that instead?

If you want to wait another two years and pay a bit more than go ahead. Otherwise, just get a PS4 pro.

So this seems like a good place to ask....

 

I kind of want a PS4. With the PS5 coming next year or in 2021 - which PS4 is the more "worth it" console to get?

 

I don't have a 4K TV (yet).

 

Is it worth shelling out for the Pro at this point?

I don't have a Pro. From what I've heard though, the specs are supposed to make games run slightly better even if you don't have 4K. That said though, if all you're looking for is something to hold you over for a couple years until the PS5 comes out, I'd still advise getting the cheaper version. It still plays the same games and I've never had a problem running anything on my base PS4.

Well you have a couple of options:

 

1. Go get a PS4 Pro and a TCL UHD TV. You can get a 55" 4K Smart TV with HDR for $350 or less these days, so I would advise picking one of those up. We got one for my mom last year and it is amazing.

 

2. Get a regular PS4. I have the regular Star Wars Theme PS4, and it works pretty well on my 4K UHD TV. I haven't tried it on my 1080ps TVs but I imagine it would be nice on them too.

 

3. Wait two years and buy a new TV and a PS5.

The Pro does offer broad overhead performance improvements.  But a bulk of its benefits are on higher resolution TVs.

 

I figure it's at least worth waiting until the fall to learn any details of the new device, and the Pro will probably see price reductions in the holiday season as well.

Yeah, like I said in (I think) the Fallout 76 thread, my gaming TV is an ancient 720p set. Pre-LED, HDR, and all that jazz. It's getting updated (thanks for that TV rec Predaking!) - I just haven't decided when. Probably sooner, rather than later, since low res screens have been bothering my eyes lately.

 

I kind of don't want to get a PS4 Pro, since the PS5 is coming and I'm 80% certain I'm going to get one of those, and paying for a Pro right now with a replacement on the way just bugs me. But I'm also leaning towards doing anyway. Maybe.

 

If I didn't need a TV upgrade, I'd just get the regular PS4 and be happy until the PS5 comes out.
