Perfect is the enemy of the good. And it's still better than making him a remold of RTS Jazz as planned originally. Fact of the matter is: Nightbeat is just not a priority with Hasbro.

@  Demovere Xeno : (08 May 2021 - 08:58 AM)

Generations Nightbeat never really scratched that itch sadly; he looked okay, but his transformation was fiddly, his robot mode had far too many bits and pieces flopping around unsecured, and his chest dragged along the surface in var mode. =/

@  Demovere Xeno : (08 May 2021 - 08:57 AM)

I second wishing that we got a Deluxe Nightbeat from TR, mostly because as a kid he was second-in-command to my old Powermaster Optimus for the longest time. =P

@  tigerhawk : (08 May 2021 - 05:41 AM)

Wipe Out and Wilder it coulda been: Wipe Out is down in the dumps because the Scramble City Trypticon was destroyed and left him a drifting to the point he arrives in Legends World, he finds Wilder and both go on a crime spree subverted by their realisation neither gets any joy from it until they stop a violent crook together and become anti heroes. (Bass XO beat me!)

@  Bass X0 : (08 May 2021 - 05:39 AM)

Yes, Nightbeat and Siren would have been easy remolds of Chromedome - just give them new chests and each other's Titan Master heads. Fangry and Squeezeplay would be remolded from Twinferno with their own Titan Master heads. And Horri-Bull would have been remolded from Wolfwire.

@  Rycochet : (07 May 2021 - 05:10 PM)

Surprised we didn't get a full size retool from the monsterbot mold. I'd rather have a CW Ironhide retool though, we need a van Wilder.

@  tigerhawk : (07 May 2021 - 04:19 PM)

I just noticed Wilder was the only omission from Takara Legends.

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 06:01 AM)

Even more weirdly, it was the early shift where some people had their regular day off for the week, while the late shift was supposed to have full attendance (not counting sick days, vacations and overtime reduction).

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 01:15 AM)

The weirdest part was that there was a steady influx of voters during the early shift, while hardly anyone showed up during the late shift.

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 01:14 AM)

Wow, that was a long day. But it's over, and I finally got some sleep. Not particularly happy with the outcome, but then again, my candidates both admit they didn't really campaign that much.

@  Echowarrior : (06 May 2021 - 08:56 PM)

Best of luck, Nevermore.

@  wonko the sane? : (06 May 2021 - 10:18 AM)

Best of luck man.

@  electricidad : (05 May 2021 - 03:22 PM)

GOOD LUCK, NEVERMORE!

@  Nevermore : (05 May 2021 - 03:14 PM)

The election committee whose chairman I am has been preparing this election since February. There's no real gain for me either way, so I don't care that much for the outcome, but it's going to be a stressful day for me either way.

@  Nevermore : (05 May 2021 - 03:13 PM)

Wish me luck. Tomorrow is this year's supervisory board election at my workplace, and I'm the guy in charge of organizing the election.

@  tigerhawk : (05 May 2021 - 01:30 PM)

I have two Overlords one was faulty with a melted foot and they never took it back but replaced it, I just checked the guns, both the handles seem to be turning white.

REVELATION! Towering war machines more durable than nerd!

@  Telly : (04 May 2021 - 07:18 PM)

pansy. my trypticon AND scorponok took a header from 4 feet up and only had parts pop off that were easily reattached. guess 'cons are tougher...

@  tigerhawk : (04 May 2021 - 04:03 PM)

My TR Perceptor fell and the titan master peg in the leg snapped off. Fortunately I have the Legends one.

@  wonko the sane? : (02 May 2021 - 08:50 PM)

It's a fairly well known fact that "it's a wonderful life" only became popular after it dropped into the public domain. So, yeah, they probably did.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (02 May 2021 - 08:29 PM)

I read an interesting observation on Twitter. If it is the natural course of a human to grow into Grandpa Abe yelling at a cloud, but nostalgia also yields rose-tinted glasses for the likes of one's youth, then did Greatest Generation adults bemoan how Baby Boomer children loved box office flops such as The Wizard of Oz and It's a Wonderful Life?

@  Steevy Maximus : (02 May 2021 - 09:54 AM)

You’re traveling down a rabbit hole I dare not follow

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:26 AM)

At the same time, with my almost non-existent knowledge of Japanese and how oddly some things translate, seeing "Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges" made me wonder if that would make it "JoJoJo"... which now has my brain terrified of a weird Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo/Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Crossover. @[email protected]

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:24 AM)

It is always weird when things align.  This talk of Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges in the SquawkBox reminded me of King Gorgeous Gorge on the FoxBox.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 May 2021 - 08:52 PM)

Nice

@  Nevermore : (01 May 2021 - 09:03 AM)

I got one even better: After that character by the name of Gorgeous Giorgios dies in a gorge, they name that whole area after him: The Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges.

@  tigerhawk : (30 April 2021 - 01:56 AM)

Paint apps did slide notably during TR, wave one's Titan Masters had detail but wave 2 onwards was absent of them. Wave 5's Ramhorn, Dreadnaut, Scorchfire and Aimless had detail but Murk and Hazard didn't, can't speak for Flameout as I got Legends Twintwist and Slugslinger.

@  kizudarake : (29 April 2021 - 04:50 PM)

Anyone here got any g1 jet fire parts for sale?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 April 2021 - 04:12 PM)

Other than a few overly tight joints, the paints apps are my single complaint about the generations line.

@  tigerhawk : (29 April 2021 - 02:25 PM)

I just saw Legends Leo Prime now I wish Titans Return Alpha Trion had a few more paint apps for ship mode.

@  CORVUS : (27 April 2021 - 08:11 PM)

Indeed.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (27 April 2021 - 04:59 PM)

CORVUS: considering that reply, I'm pretty sure this was just another instance of Bass posting poorly-defined drivel as if it were profound.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 April 2021 - 04:24 PM)

Given the last year and a half or so, is it any surprise?

@  Bass X0 : (27 April 2021 - 04:12 PM)

People are snapping already it seems.

@  Kaon : (27 April 2021 - 12:15 PM)

I like the Shattered Glass Megatron's alt mode

@  CORVUS : (26 April 2021 - 07:30 PM)

I'd like to know what society he's talking about, and what qualifies as "nothing", TBH.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 April 2021 - 05:09 PM)

I don't see the point in such a poorly defined "everyone is terrible" statement. He's not complaining about any specific people or specific problems.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 April 2021 - 05:06 PM)

I do not see anything about Bass's comment that felt a need for you to attack him.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 April 2021 - 04:35 PM)

Bass: does that "everyone" include yourself or are you just trying to act like you're better than everybody without actually proving anything?

@  wonko the sane? : (26 April 2021 - 04:10 PM)

Mostly it's "oh, don't say that right now" and "better learn when to duck".

@  Bass X0 : (26 April 2021 - 04:05 PM)

There's something to be said about society when everyones just an inch away from snapping over nothing.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 April 2021 - 02:17 PM)

WalMart is a cruel mistress. Today she runneth over...tommorrow, she'll be barren as a desert.

@  -LittleAutob... : (26 April 2021 - 12:21 PM)

I love Wal-mart now- They have way more Transformers figures than Target- last night I came home with a WFC Authentic Wheeljack even though I was torn between wanting TFP Arcee and TF: The Movie Blurr, two figures I have never ever seen before-

Now I suddenly have a character with the name "Gorgeous Georgios" in mind.

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.
