I got stabbed in the eyelid by a mudwasp, pulled down a tree, and then got ice cream. You know, all told: not a bad day.

What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Woot! Beast wars!

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 06:08 PM)

Yay! Tubi now has the first season of Rescue Bots and the full run of Beast Wars FINALLY available.

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

@  Paladin : (14 October 2019 - 09:57 AM)

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

In the year 1492, Columbus gave us the day off skoo

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 08:29 AM)

You've got like two more weeks until the american thanksgiving. Canadian thanksgiving is literally a harvest festival.

Hey, everyone. Come together to enjoy this national holiday made to celebrate a mass-murderer who never set foot in the USA. What fun!

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 07:25 AM)

that's perfect!

@Bass X0 Letting myself comment to say "That's a good one!" and ask "Would a megalodon be a good fit for Megatron?"

@  Benbot : (07 October 2019 - 07:59 AM)

Ohhh good one

@  Bass X0 : (07 October 2019 - 07:39 AM)

I now want a Decepticon shark called Megalotron.

@  TriBlurr : (06 October 2019 - 05:47 PM)

Gives them time to screw up the color of his hands. :p

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 October 2019 - 12:33 PM)

His bulk is too great to teleport across such distances.

@  Sabrblade : (06 October 2019 - 11:09 AM)

Cuz it'll take that long to mass produce.

@  Darth Gonzo : (06 October 2019 - 10:47 AM)

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.
