Wouldn't that just add packaging authenticity? :D

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 December 2019 - 01:44 AM)

I read a anecdote of someone recently receiving a Glacialord with mold because apparently online stores' warehouses have been sitting on Fansproject products like that for years.

Unlike many of his peers, Morton diesn't seem to have gone out of his way to try and take every drug going so he's aged remarkably well.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:39 AM)

Doesn't seem to have been a market for it, which is too bad, because it perfectly does what it sets out to do.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Just opened it and suddenly I'm 9 years old again.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Bought myself Fansproject Glacialord for my birthday during their Black Friday sale.

@  Nevermore : (12 December 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Morten Harket of A-ha might have aged 35 years on the outside, but his voice is still pretty much the same as it was in 1984. That's some great training and exercise for you.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 December 2019 - 06:59 PM)

Depends entirely on how badly you cooked them. What?

Cheddar can do just about anything.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:31 PM)

(for example: I like Swiss cheese on sandwiches, but find it merely tolerable by itself)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:30 PM)

I mean are you eating it by itself? With crackers? On a sandwich?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

I would ask, but I'd rather not know.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (12 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

With my mouth, usually.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 08:48 AM)

Depends on how you're eating it.

Man I wish IDW could do a season 2.5 with a few writers like Michael Charles Hill or Donald F Glut or Paul Davids involved.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 04:33 PM)

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 02:58 PM)

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 05:38 AM)

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:05 AM)

Anyone really believe Cosmos searched far enough for more ingredient for Corrostop?

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2019 - 03:48 AM)

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 December 2019 - 04:39 PM)

Still better than American jobs. x.x;

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 December 2019 - 11:10 AM)

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:54 PM)

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

@  Paladin : (04 December 2019 - 02:59 PM)

Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was amazing. Aquaman... exists.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

TBF, Aquaman and Shazam! were pretty good.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 01:00 PM)

Not a difficult feat.

Also great that it has Aliens VS Predator on it.

 


I hope since it has WiFi, that it gets updates / more games.

I like the game selection, particularly games like AvP and Darkstalkers that I've never played before and/or don't already have several copies of.

But that price point is way too high for a plug and play. $300, I'm getting myself one of those Mortal Kombat 1-UP cabinets.

Yeah, $300 is the price of a Arcade 1-UP cabinet.  And aside from Aliens vs Predator, there is NOTHING on that device that can't be gotten elsewhere in some form, all for a much lower price.

 

I would much rather a "Capcom Collection" of some sort featuring their licensed stuff, even at a premium price than clutter my living area with MORE limited gaming devices.

Wait you never play one of the dozens of Dalkstalkers/Night Warriors/Vampire Savior ports out there?

Nope. I never saw any of them. Did it ever even come out on any Nintendo systems? I mean, I've seen Morrigan because of the Vs. games. And she's why I would love to get my hands on a Darkstalkers game. But I've never even seen one irl, let alone played it.

Nope.  The Saturn had the only decent ports of the game for a long time.  They had a Vampire collection that came out a few years ago for the PS4 and XB1.

I'd be more interested in the control deck if you could have used it as a controller for other games. But as it stands: recreating the arcade experience for a handful of games (granted with a really good quality control system.) which are readily available for cheaper from other sources isn't really worth it.

 

I am interested in seeing it hacked though. I hope they do something spectacular with it. THAT might be enough to get me to drop the 400+ it'll be if it's even available in canada.

You see, I'm not going to argue that the thing doesn't look well made. It looks extremely well made. But it still amounts to a plug and play.

At first, people wanted nothing to do with the PS4 because of the price point. It let you play Bluray movies unlike the 360. Technically it had the better specs. It didn't have the red ring of death. But people didn't buy it because of the price point. It was a well made console. But because it was well made, it was an over-priced console and nobody wanted to buy it until it started coming down in price.

Same thing here. Sure it has better specs than most plug and plays. Sure it has the Sanwa sticks. But it's still a plug and play. I was willing to spend $300 for far less games on my Arcade 1-Up because, well, it was an arcade cabinet. Yeah it had fewer games than the 30th Anniversary collection I got for my Switch for far less money. But there's a certain wow factor to actually owning an arcade cabinet. There's not the same wow factor for a plug and play, no matter the bells and whistles.

Now, if they do use that USB port to allow for more games to be used on the system (totally plausible I'm sure), well then it's no longer just a typical plug and play. It becomes a rather inexpensive but very viable home console that specializes in arcade perfect games. Now that I would be a lot more willing to shell out $300 for.

That is a common complaint, though honestly it's the least of my problems with it. Who ever really looks down at the controller while they're playing?

They also had an excellent port for the PSP at launch and Darkstalkers also had good ports on the PS1 and PS3 had remastered version digitally

 

But Nintendo has never had a single Darkstalkers games (Ill check the Switch store in a bit)

Once one is familiar enough with the layout, I'm sure not much, but on the other hand, I expect to be able to see what button is what out of the corner of my eye WITHOUT having to take my eye off of a screen to wonder "where did it go?" or "which one is the one I want?"

Okay... first thought, How are you supposed to play that comfortably?
Like if you have it resting it on you and you'r playing single player you either position your arms off to one side or you slide over the arcade stick and depending on your chair may tilt it on an angle
Like... you need a table in front of you to play this

I just downloaded Darkstalkers Resurrection on the PS3. I had to turn off the filters because they're just downright ugly. Butit does play very much like a Street Fighter game, which is good. I see two characters I want to learn: Morrigan and Felicia.

Of course this means my need for this $300 system is even less than it was before.
