Carnivac was still an evil Decepticon at heart, and no one shot him in the back for it.

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)

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

@  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.

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)

@  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

Each of the Elements is a FATE-style Aspect that can be invoked negatively on occasion. The GM is loading the Mane 6 up with fate points for the finale, I guess.

Time to run. Later.


Good final season episode. Rarity looks back on something we've been watching all these years and realizes what it's meant to her.

Kinda.

On the other hand, if a friend suddenly drops cold turkey a bunch of activities he used to enjoy, you should not ignore that.

Oh, absolutely. You should check and see if there's something amiss. Rarity only checked because it was affecting HER activities, and not because spike suddenly changed.

On the other hand, her attempts to get his attention back showed that she actually has a really good idea what he likes to do. Clearly she has been paying attention to the stuff he talks about when they hang out. She doesn't just know what makes him useful. She thoroughly knows what he's into. That has to count for something.

I'm not saying she wasn't in tune with him, I am saying that she only started when it inconvenienced her life.

 

Edit: I'm also being more than a little sarcastic here. They didn't do a very good job STARTING this story.

Oh, absolutely. You should check and see if there's something amiss. Rarity only checked because it was affecting HER activities, and not because spike suddenly changed.

 

 

Well of course, I mean you and your friends have things you do seperate and stuff you do togeather. You're less likely notice if a friend drops and activity you're not a part of. This is stuff that Spike likes doing with her, and has been doing with her consistantly for years. Rarity has her businesses and classes to help manage, its not like she's always demanding Spike's time. But here, Rarity finds that one of their things, is suddenly SO not important to Spike that he's not even paying attention to her. That's gonna raise red flags to anyone, and not just becuase its effects her.

 

Now the whole "divorced parent' bit, yeah that's not as great, but I also feel that Spike's at fault some as well. It feels like Spike's not making time for anyone but Gabby, we only see it effect Rarity because 22 mins and plot, but it feels like he's being obsessed with Gabby. So luring him away with one time only things, might be a bit underhanded, but it also seems like the only thing he'll make time for. Neither are really being great friends imo but Rarity for most the episode is just trying to come to terms with her feelings for Spike. Its something good for her.

 

The only part that really reflects badly on her, imo, is how she seems to ignore Spike's feelings after Gabby rejects him till Twilight speaks up. But Spike again also seems to realize that he's kinda been hurting Rarity as well through this episode till the end. As it feels like the WHOLE episode could have been avoided by Spike's just making plans later for him and Rarity to do. Like he seems to finally do at the end.

Oh, no, I didn't mean "from day one" kinda thing. I literally meant this episode. She has to walk into his room and scream at him to get his attention. It could have been handled better if they did the whole "brushed off while running into each other" trope. She runs into spike in the places he normally is (the castle, the school, sugar cube corner, ect...) and every time she asks him if he wants to help her, he comes up with an excuse and off he goes. Until rarity gets tired of it and just follows him to figure out why. THEN she goes into the whole divorced parent bit to get spike back. To me, that feels alot less forced.

Yes, again you have to remember you only got 22 minutes to get everything done. The direct approach of Rarity going to Spike telling her she's off the the Gem caves which she knows he likes doing with her and then getting refused. Is the quickest and simplest way to set up the plot.

Divorced parent thing? Wow, I didn't see that there. Hmm, Rarity doesn't have any romantic intentions toward Spike anyway so, eh. Glad she realized that she might have been using Spike and knew that she messed up a good thing Spike had with Gabby and made moves to fix it up.

Hope Spike grows up enough to realize he's not right for her and moves on in the future.

Btw, I would never have though of Gabby, of all people, to be a viable close friend to Spike.

Hmm, the Mane 6 have no romantic partners. Seems like pony Flash Sentry is gone.
