@  TheMightyMol... : (22 January 2020 - 06:58 PM)

Bold of you all to assume we won't wipe ourselves out in 50 years.

@  Benbot : (22 January 2020 - 04:27 PM)

There will be no UBI, people will just live in a ditch while they celebrate owning the libs.

@  Rycochet : (22 January 2020 - 03:24 PM)

In 50 years, retail will be dead because all stores are staffless fully automated operations controlled by Amazon. The UBI will be less than a fifth of what it actually costs to live after two decades of cuts and.a steadfast refusal to match inflation.

@  Maximus Ambus : (22 January 2020 - 02:55 PM)

In fifty years retail will be a thing of the past through robots, printers and Universal Basic Income.

All retail is basically the same.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2020 - 10:00 AM)

Walmart just needs to go bankrupt already.

@  ThunderWear : (20 January 2020 - 07:19 AM)

They didn't put the 35th anniversary stuff back out until after new year. I'm no retail expert, but I feel like having stock on the shelf is better than the back. Especially toys at christmas time.

@  ThunderWear : (20 January 2020 - 07:18 AM)

Yeah, my local walmart took away the 35th anniversary endcap weeks before Christmas and left the Transformer section empty well past Christmas.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 January 2020 - 04:44 AM)

Mine only has the 35th Anniversary Voyagers. A whole lot of them.

@  Telly : (19 January 2020 - 11:35 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)

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.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 January 2020 - 02:11 PM)

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.

So E3 started but its already off to a bad start with Sony being a no show and I have flat given up on Microsoft

I don't think Id buy an XB1 for even 99 bucks preloaded with Halo Infinite at this point 

EA already did there thing and the Star Wars game looks... BORING AS HELL...

 

So lets hope there some bright spots in the coming days

Given who started this thread, I wasn't sure if the thread title was intentional or not. :p

 

Frankly, I'm waiting on Nintendo.  The past 5 years have really soured me on mainstream AAA gaming, with the egregious load times, money pinching, and misleading functionality (the PS4 is certainly NOT plug and play).  But Nintendo's streamlined experience has really helped me get back into semi-regular game playing, even in spite of the peculiarities on Nintendo's end and sometimes questionable releases.

I thought the Star Wars game looked just fine.

 

Of course it'd be a thousand times better if it was Force Unleashed 3, but it looks like a decent 3rd person platformer so far.

Well then I guess you don't want Sega Ages, The Genesis collection, the Castlevania collection... etc. etc.

 

Those collections are why the VC doesn't exist anymore.

Which is why it looks like a decent game to me.

 

However it's not Starkiller, and the reigned in force powers keep it from being amazing.

 

Pretty much, the force powers in both Unleashed games are what I wish the force WAS like. It looked awesome, it played awesome. (Okay to be fair both games had flaws, but I loved em anyway) And I really liked Starkiller.

 

This new game though, is probably the best I could hope for now a days.

Wait why would Sega Ages or the collections not exists? you can have both One would be the packaged deal with extras and one would be the vanilla version or just skip those few collections and pump out whats not covered in them in a true Virtual console put a 7.99-9.99 price tag on NES,SNES, N64 games and the Switch would just print money

It's my experience that those in high corporate/upper management have no clue how it actually works, yet feel they have it all figured out.

 

If I had to guess, their reasoning is: "If all these games were on the virtual console, no one would have any need of buying these expensive collection systems we're bringing out! Therefore we must make sure the collection is the only way to get said games! Then people will HAVE to buy! We're so smart!"

Actually, it's probably just a means to monetize the titles they already own, but aren't otherwise selling. They get to justify both the collection AND a higher price per title, as well as make at least a little coin of IP's that wouldn't move on their own.

 

Edit: The thing I actually came in here to say: I lost interest in the spectacle of e3 years ago. It's a neat premise, but it's lackluster these days. Big friggen shows over rehashed crap or absolutely nothing isn't worth the attention. I am interested in the bethesda showcase at 5.30, but I'm not even going to watch it, I'm going to read the abbreviated tomorrow.

Basicly this.. These companies go "Why put this on a VC When we can sell these ourselves."

I mean really, is buying a Sega Ages game any real different then a sega vc game?

That... was a show? I guess?

 

Sat through the whole thing just to find out that Halo is the only game I'm remotely interested in and it won't be out until next year and only on a new console.

 

Kind of liked the Lego Forza gameplay, but racing games aren't my thing, so, eh.

Ya, I can't say there was anything grabbing again this year. I want to see the Halo story continue but I still haven't played 5 yet. And nice announcing a new console with lots of hype and not much else to show. I mean slated for Holiday 2020 and no floor model to show off. Does it have a disc drive? Are any other games besides Halo coming? And does anyone think it's going to still be named Project Scarlett at launch?

There wasn't a lot there for me. Star Wars is cool and my wife loved the Force Unleashed games so we'll likely be getting that. A lot of the smaller indie type games looked interesting/fun/pretty. I'll likely be up for the full Lego Star Wars saga.

Don't care about Halo and there's not enough about Elden Ring to care or not yet.

I'm considering whether the Ultimate game pass would be worth it at today's $1 price. Leaning towards probably for some folks but likely not for me given how rarely I get to play nowadays.
