Jellystone National Pawk. A westful wetweat.

@  Rycochet : (01 July 2020 - 12:47 PM)

Jellystone. We're going to be plunged into a decade of poor animation. Fortunately we've been led by bad cartoon characters for years so we won't notice much difference.

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 July 2020 - 06:19 AM)

@  Nevermore : (01 July 2020 - 05:46 AM)

21 for me, but after numerous repetitions I got it down to 17 and a half.

@  -LittleAutob... : (30 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

x-x when in vehicle mode we can travel much F A R T H E R-

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

Because despite the fact that we can travel around the world in the time it takes to get a good nights sleep and a couple of meals: people rarely wander more than 25 miles away from home for the duration of their lives.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I don't know how many days that trip takes - especially while sightseeing - but explaining they're 3936 kilometers (2445 miles) apart gives an idea, paradoxically because it is too large to easily picture.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:44 PM)

Aye.  When I catch lay people discussing miles and not how long the trip takes, it is in an attempt to stress how far away something is... like NYC to LA.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

But I can imagine 45 *minutes* easily.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

I can imagine a mile, it's a distance I've run. I can't really imagine 45 miles.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:19 PM)

I think there's also an element of the thing where things that are much bigger than us all blur together.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:49 AM)

If you're not, then you're more concerned with how long it takes.  Actual distance doesn't tell you that very well.  Besides traffic and road conditions, you'll need to know what kind of driving (city/interstate/rural/etc.).

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:47 AM)

Distance matters if you're being paid by the mile.

@  TM2-Megatron : (30 June 2020 - 11:44 AM)

Canadians are the same way, for the most part. If you're driving somewhere far, especially, it helps you plan out the day more than a distance in KM would.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:42 AM)

We use the time it takes to get someplace because that is what is relevant to us.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Because even we can't figure out miles half the time.

@  Paladin : (30 June 2020 - 09:54 AM)

it's a big country with a lot of empty space. between our citizens' ears.

@  Bass X0 : (30 June 2020 - 09:52 AM)

Why do most Americans measure distance by hours of driving?

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 07:26 PM)

And as a result the world's lone blu-ray release of the film, an Australian disc that came out 7 years ago, now goes for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Thanks Disney.

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 06:21 PM)

Well, they censored Daryl Hannah's butt in Splash :rolleyes

@  Paladin : (29 June 2020 - 05:43 PM)

maybe New Mutants is too bad even for D+.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 June 2020 - 05:00 PM)

X-Men films are coming to Disney+ next month. But will they censor Hugh Jackman's butt?

I will grant you a recolored body, and recolored troops to command.

@  Cybersnark : (29 June 2020 - 09:47 AM)

I don't want to be reissued. This body sucks, I wanna be updated.

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 09:43 AM)

I definitely don't intend to be reissued. Nobody would buy me.

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 08:31 AM)

will anybody else attempt to be reissued?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 June 2020 - 07:51 AM)

*Gasp* Decepticons re-writing history to serve their own needs?!?!

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 05:48 AM)

The whole point of the DJD is that they're fanatical Megatron fanboys (especially Tarn) to the point of having their own headcanon taking priority of the actual canon, simply speaking.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 04:01 AM)

They didn't know the war was over until later. And then they denied it anyway.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 June 2020 - 10:47 PM)

"He's comin' right for us!"

@  Telly : (28 June 2020 - 08:40 PM)

was that even still in effect once the war ended?

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 June 2020 - 06:51 PM)

According to Roberts, soldiers can ignore the order to spare Whirl if he's directly threatening them. But mostly the DJD were out of their heads on Nuke and not really caring much at the time.

@  Xaaron : (28 June 2020 - 06:41 PM)

Also, they were hopped up on goofballs at the time.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 June 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Cause it was whirl. He opened his (non-existant.) gob at the just the right time to piss somebody off. Or, so I assume.

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 June 2020 - 06:00 PM)

If Whirl was off limits why did the DJD kill him?

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 June 2020 - 05:57 PM)

That sounds about right. I actually didn't get into it until the IQ expansion came out (which saved me a bit of expense)

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

Weird question (and sorry for so many shouts): did Overpower really release in August of '95?  I could have sworn I attempted to play it with a classmate who shouldn't have been a classmate by that point.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

So... I don't have all my cards still somewhere. XP I still play Pokémon via the PTCGO, and I've been doing Card of the Days over on Pojo (on and off) since 2013.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:51 PM)

For both financial, personal, and practical reasons, all my collectibles had to go about 10 years ago: action figures, comic books, card games, RPG books, video games.

@  TM2-Megatron : (27 June 2020 - 05:48 PM)

I've still got all my cards, somewhere; I had a pretty decent collection. Still have the Japanese Digimon CCG, too. Glad I never got into Magic; way too pricey

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:36 PM)

Technically, Overpower was my first TCG... except I never, ever learned how to play it, or understood that booster packs contained different cards than the Starter Decks.

@  Otaku : (27 June 2020 - 05:35 PM)

Can't forget what you didn't know in the first place.

@  Patch : (27 June 2020 - 05:28 PM)

Ah yes, Overpower. Who could forget the expansion where they added a new stat and you had to re-collect your heroes all over again.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 June 2020 - 04:20 PM)

Counterpoint, when was the last time you spent money on Overpower?

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.

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.
