*stares at the light switch* .... I see what you did there

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (30 May 2020 - 01:40 PM)

*hands llittleautobot1218 a light switch* There you go.

@  -LittleAutob... : (30 May 2020 - 10:53 AM)

I feel a need to lighten up the mood.... ;)

@  -LittleAutob... : (30 May 2020 - 10:38 AM)

:p

@  Maximus Ambus : (30 May 2020 - 02:14 AM)

Shockwave did it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (30 May 2020 - 12:21 AM)

I'm not in the US and at least some of the episodes seem to work for me. I don't know the actual list of places it's available, though.

@  Shockwave 75 : (29 May 2020 - 10:37 PM)

Unfortunately It seems Cyberverse is only available in the US on YouTube.

@  -LittleAutob... : (29 May 2020 - 09:19 AM)

Yes, and its ongoing.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (29 May 2020 - 01:05 AM)

Cyberverse is already officially uploaded to YouTube.

@  fourteenwings : (29 May 2020 - 12:36 AM)

Spin Master is abridging current episodes of Bakugan Armored Alliance and posting the result on YouTube. Maybe Hasbro does that someday too.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 May 2020 - 10:59 PM)

I see... :/

@  wonko the sane? : (28 May 2020 - 08:14 PM)

Within the US anyway. Those channels aren't easy or cheap to access in other countries, and their website often region lock content. Tubi is the only good thing on that list: largely identical (but not perfectly so. Damnit. I wanna watch COPS.) country to country and free.

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2020 - 07:24 PM)

So yeah, Hasbro is using plenty of venues to spread exposure of their brands

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Starz currently licenses Transformers G1 and the GI Joe movie (as well as MLP specials). Netflix has more current series available.

@  Nevermore : (28 May 2020 - 07:21 PM)

Study shows: Holders of the title "world's oldest person" have a severely increased risk of dying.

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2020 - 07:18 PM)

Tubi TV and Youtube both host various Hasbro cartoons. Both are freely accessed and ad supported. Any basic TV package (barring straight antenna) includes channels like USA Network, SyFy and FX, all of which regularly air the films from Transformers and GI Joe.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 May 2020 - 06:18 PM)

I dunno what to tell you, media might be changing slowly, but at least it's still accessible. Even the folks that DON'T get one of the streaming services can watch it on the company website. It's a vehicle for the toy line after all, they need to make an effort to make it as consumable as possible.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 May 2020 - 05:41 PM)

Well. Thats said, then.... I guess... :doh

@  wonko the sane? : (28 May 2020 - 04:13 PM)

As long as the the cartoons are profitable, then they'll make more. The media it's shown on is completely irrelevant. I say that as a guy whose earliest surviving memory is a big red truck turning into a big red robot.

@  ZakuConvoy : (28 May 2020 - 03:06 PM)

Might be the end of an era. With the rise of streaming, who knows if Transformers will ever be on broadcast TV again.

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 May 2020 - 11:46 AM)

3 seasons on a show is usually enough... but yeah ;-;

@  Roddie Luver : (27 May 2020 - 09:37 PM)

I’m also sad Cyberverse has no season four.

@  Paladin : (26 May 2020 - 08:10 PM)

it's too hugging hot today.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

I'll agree with you on that.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

*Figured -_-

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 03:39 PM)

I fugured

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 May 2020 - 01:37 PM)

I'm actually sad Cyberverse won't get another season. 2 and 3 (of what I've seen) have REALLY nailed it in being fun little actions shows, like the Sunbow series.

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2020 - 01:00 PM)

Yes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 May 2020 - 12:52 PM)

I'm waiting for Animated season 4. Am I insane?

@  wonko the sane? : (25 May 2020 - 11:22 AM)

I'm waiting for the next season to show up on netflix.

@  Sabrblade : (25 May 2020 - 10:59 AM)

Many of us have already watched the rest of the Cyberverse episodes since the whole third season aired in the UK last September.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 10:18 AM)

*9th

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 May 2020 - 10:17 AM)

I just saw the 8th episode... omg

@  Bass X0 : (25 May 2020 - 01:28 AM)

Already seen it online.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 09:42 PM)

Who's excited for tomorrow? The only thing that makes Monday worth it is the Cyberverse episodes .-.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 May 2020 - 12:30 PM)

Welcome. I just came into that trick myself recently, so happy to share.

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 12:05 PM)

Thanks, wonko the sane? for the tip with the cloning. That helped a lot!

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 12:02 PM)

Heheh.... yes... I don't think a sniper would be very good at making a vaccine... 0.0

@  Nevermore : (24 May 2020 - 11:48 AM)

All right! Cloning my old HHD to an SSD and then swapping out the drive was successful, it would appear. Finally.

@  Bass X0 : (24 May 2020 - 11:30 AM)

Scientist Perceptor is. Sniper Perceptor less so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 10:51 AM)

Perceptor would be more responsible.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 10:48 AM)

Oof x~x

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 10:45 AM)

He'd cure the virus, but he'd probably commit at least two crimes against nature and weaponize a third in the process.

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 09:39 AM)

'Horrible consequences' would most likely happen with Brainstorm...

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 May 2020 - 08:16 AM)

Totally. And Percy's not even human. XD

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2020 - 06:50 AM)

Can't do much worse than our current government, I say go for it.

@  Sabrblade : (23 May 2020 - 10:13 PM)

Little do we realize that the Perceptor in question is the Mini-Con combiner. :p

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

He would!!!

@  -LittleAutob... : (23 May 2020 - 10:11 PM)

Horrible consequences? I... Doubt that would happen.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 May 2020 - 09:55 PM)

Even if he would come up with the answer by tomorrow.

Hey all,

 

Rather than take over the WoW thread i thought I'd start one about this game.  I couldn't find a previous thread about it, and didn't see any mentions inf the "General final fantasy' topic.

 

I started the game in the first beta and played heavily until about the second patch of Heavensward.  Haven't played since, but was thinking about rejoining for Shadowbringers.

 

So let's talk about the game!

 

I used PLD and BLK mostly in ARR and then switched to DRK for Heavens.  I was kind of interested in doing a Red mage but I do not have stormblood at this point (though I'm told its included in shadowbringers).

I played at the launch of the 1.0 version, and it just couldn't hold my attention. I looked into the game again in the lead up to ARR, and saw that it appears they actually did some pretty cool stuff leading into the server shutdown. I kinda wish I could have stuck around for that now.

 

I toyed with the idea of jumping back in for ARR, but ultimately I just don't have time for an MMO these days. I couldn't even keep up anymore with the modern, much more user friendly version of FFXI.

I got into the beta waaay back whenever and played regularly until the free period finally ran out. I did jump back in to see Dalamud fall, though. The End of an Era video still gives me chills.

I played ARR for a while too. I'm weird when it comes to MMORPGs. I don't like to talk or really interact with other players at all, though I love being in the world with them. ARR's focus on parties and dungeons turned me off, so I never even completed the main story bit and eventually stopped playing. I miss my lady Roegadyn, but there's not much for an antisocial weirdo like me to do in the game :drunk

The last thing I can remember doing was spending the rest of my gil on an apartment with a cute little dragon maid.

I was kind of interested in doing a Red mage but I do not have stormblood at this point (though I'm told its included in shadowbringers).

Pretty sure you don't need Stormblood to play Red Mage and Samurai, you just need to get to level 50 and clear the ARR main story to unlock it. Then the quests to unlock them will be in Ul'dah.

I level everything, but I switch mostly between Red Mage and Summoner. I'm hoping the incoming changes for Dark Knight work out well, I love the aesthetic (and also giant swords) but the job got really clunky in Stormblood.

The Vault is part of Heavensward. The ARR main story concludes at the Praetorium. Guess I misremembered that.

Doesn't matter.. PC is cross platform with PS4.

 

Which is why it's not on Xbone or Switch. x.x;

I'm on PS4, but it's cross-platform. If you do go on console, though, I strongly recommend a keyboard. Typing on a controller is a royal pain.

Server-wise, I'm on Cactuar.

The benchmark for Shadowbringers went up a couple of days ago. It includes character creation options for the two new races, Viera and Hrothgar. So I made a bunny.

D7Wu_QCWwAAmuNV.jpg

My PC chokes on it a bit, unfortunately. I also assume the full release will have more hair options, the developers have had trouble working some of them around the ears. Still, fun to play with. Dunno if I'll switch my main, but I'll probably make an alt.

I did the benchmark,

On maximum setting (windowed borderless) I got High
On High Desktop (windowed borderless) I got Very High
On Standard Desktop (windowed borderless) I got Extremely High

I have 8 gb ddr3 ram and. Nvidia gtx 750.. May be due for an upgrade.
