Probably gonna assemble Devastator after work.

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:58 AM)

Ooooh. Overload arrived. He's surprisingly fun.

@  Bass X0 : (02 July 2020 - 04:00 PM)

@  Bass X0 : (02 July 2020 - 03:10 PM)

what would Canada do with Yogi?

@  Cyoti : (01 July 2020 - 12:51 PM)

We can deport Yogi back to Canada now.

@  Sabrblade : (01 July 2020 - 12:50 PM)

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)

what next? YELLOWSTONE?

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

Thanks, dead person.

@  Bass X0 : (01 July 2020 - 05:06 AM)

congratulations to all survivors of the first half of 2020.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 10:21 PM)

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

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 06:16 PM)

I transform in six steps from human to human sitting on my ass at the computer and back again!

@  -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?

@  -LittleAutob... : (29 June 2020 - 12:44 PM)

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.

Welp your next gen PS4 pro is now obsolete Reveil

 

What we know and what we want?

 

So Sony has announced to the world publicly the PS5 with known hardware of using SSD to store and retrieve date making load times a lot less of an issue 4 and 8k compatibility and a focus on Ray Tracing

 

What I think is this Sony might be jumping the gun a bit in its rollout but in doing so will be the first in next the line of consoles and with the advent of the midlife pro versions being the thing now it thinks this is the way forward.

 

I did get a bit more play out of my PS4 then my PS3 23 games on the PS3 and 29 on the PS4 but at the start of the PS4 life there was a distinct lack of variety compared to the PS3 or PS2 but its gotten a bit better now

 

So Sony by now you know my rule there must be 5 games on your platform before I buy it so get to work

I was wondering why you brought this up as this is all stuff we knew months ago. Then I saw this IGN video where they talk about the PS5 announcement today:

 

 

Neat that it has a UHD drive (Finally!) and that installs are mandatory. It is definitely on my list for next holiday season.

They've really got to let you preload. Even on non-digital purchases.

 

Buying a game and having to wait 3+ hours for patches is bullcrap.

I'll wait and see.  I haven't been a fan of where the industry has treaded this past generation, and my suspicion is that next year's launch will be a repeat of the PS4 launch where we'll see couple token "next gen" titles out to show off tech, but a majority of the content with be "same stuff on the PS4, but prettier".

They also need to let you start playing before the entire game is downloaded/installed. I know they dabbled in offering that this gen, but all I ever heard about it was that publishers kept abusing it, pretending the game was ready to play when literally all you could do was browse the menu until the whole rest of the game was on the hard drive. Why is it so damn hard to just make that feature work? Steam tried it too, ages ago, and got rid of it because reasons and hasn't even touched the idea since.

That doesn't surprise me.  Games don't really store data in a chapter by chapter basis, and that sounds like a poor way to store it.


Unfortunately, fools are often planproof.

Apparently the PS5 is going to use triple layer 100GB UHD discs and double as a 4K blu-ray player, which is fantastic news for the format. The Playstation 3 also functioning as a blu-ray player really did good things for the proliferation of that format in homes that may not have had it so early otherwise. Hopefully the release of catalog titles on UHD really ramps up after the PS5 sales start rolling in.

Yeah, It will be nice, but most of the Xbox Ones sold in the past three years have had them in it. Every Xbox One S or X comes standard with the format. Heck, stand alone players aren't that expensive anymore either. I am shocked that the PS4 Pro didn't have it. 

 

The format really is pretty awesome. Region free, insane quality, HDR, and the black cases with silver logos look cool.

Yeah, I am going to have to say that it won't. The entire architecture of the PS3 is way too different from the PS4 and PS5. You might be able to get a PS1 and PS2 emulator on it, but I doubt that they will emulate the PS3.

At this point ps1 support should be baked into every new PlayStation system. Heck, the PlayStation classic is considerably less powerful than the ps3, yet it can do it. Only reason not to is possible piracy concerns.

Yes, because Sony is just raking in the money on those 25 year old games...hell, they'd be able to make MORE money by just allowing the library of PS1 titles you can STILL BUY for the PSP/Vita/PS3 to be purchased on the PS5.

 

 

If the PS5 is 1000% backwards compatible make mine Sony I have over 250 official games on the PS1 and 2

 

Well according to the presentation today... Only BC with PS4. That's it. And only tested 100 games and ALMOST all of them ran.

 

100 of the MOST PLAYED PS4 games.  So, we'll see GTA, the major Sony games, Overwatch, PUBG, and maybe some of the sports games.

 

I'll wait until more information is revealed, but they are doing NOTHING to get me hyped for a new Playstation.  I'm more game to get an Xbox One X if they continue to support the platform as they implied.  I'd still be able to take use of the backward compatible catalog to play some DAMN solid games from the past 15 odd years.

Games are gestalts. Unless all the data is there, including the stuff you aren't actually using right now, then it doesn't work. The only way to make that kind of format work would be to make smaller, episodic games and you literally cannot do that with large scale open sandbox worlds. And even then: you're not actually making the game run while downloading, you're just making the downloads faster cause you're putting less stuff in it.

 

Game streaming, on the whole, is stupid. You're stuck relying on a ridiculously fast internet connection which most of the world doesn't have or refuses to pay for, and racking up data charges equal to many times the size of the actual game because you never actually STOP downloading it.
