Aw I scratched the hood of my 35th anniversary Bluestreak. Fortunately he's in robot mode a lot.

@  Sabrblade : (25 September 2020 - 07:24 PM)

No decoration could improve the wall more than Knockout himself

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 September 2020 - 05:04 PM)

The wall could use some decorating, though. Maybe a nice shelf or a portrait.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 September 2020 - 04:32 PM)

I'm laughing so hard XDDD

@  ▲ndrusi : (25 September 2020 - 02:31 PM)

He doesn't even mind this time. You know what? It's comfortable here.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 September 2020 - 02:23 PM)

AND THEN KNOCKOUT WAS IN THE WALL AGAIN XDDD

@  Bass X0 : (25 September 2020 - 01:11 PM)

is an annoying stage in Super Mario World.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 September 2020 - 02:15 PM)

Gnarly.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 September 2020 - 01:05 PM)

Beast Era, a blonde rat called Sunsqueaker.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 September 2020 - 01:00 PM)

And then Knockout was in the wall again.

@  Sabrblade : (24 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

Knockout: "Ooh, sorry, Lord Megatron. The correct word was... 'Decepticon'."

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 September 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Knockout: *while doing a crossword puzzle* Lord Megatron, whats a ten letter word for disappointment? | Megatron: ...... Starscream.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 September 2020 - 01:20 PM)

@Bass X0 Shockwave did it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 September 2020 - 11:56 AM)

At least it's not Suntwerker.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

I read that name as "suntweaker" the first time, and was terrified for a moment...

@  Bass X0 : (23 September 2020 - 03:41 AM)

Prowl did nothing wrong.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 September 2020 - 01:50 AM)

Smashy, Stabby, Selfy, and Shieldy.

@  Xero Prime : (22 September 2020 - 08:52 PM)

RunFast, MuckyTrail, TrackBreaker and Sunstreaker

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 September 2020 - 06:16 AM)

Runamuck, Fasttrack, Sunstreaker, and Trailbreaker.

@  Nevermore : (22 September 2020 - 06:13 AM)

Cardboard and plastic.

@  Paladin : (22 September 2020 - 05:52 AM)

what's IN Wave 3, anyway?

@  Telly : (21 September 2020 - 06:35 PM)

i dont think theyre due for release until november. at least thats when target says ill get trailbreaker and sunstreaker. thought the wiki says theyre out in singapore

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 September 2020 - 06:01 PM)

Has wave 3 actually reached anywhere yet?

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 September 2020 - 04:40 PM)

A few more Bearimy's for Earthrise wave 3 to reach the UK

@  Spiritofeigh... : (20 September 2020 - 05:07 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (20 September 2020 - 04:42 PM)

@  Spiritofeigh... : (20 September 2020 - 04:38 PM)

Hey, new to the boards

@  RichardT1977 : (20 September 2020 - 02:29 PM)

I had an idea for a Spiral Zone/Go-Busters crossover fanfic...

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 06:35 PM)

I loved what was there, and think it's pretty ripe for "renegades" style reboot.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 03:13 PM)

It's a shame as I loved Spiral Zone, and the design from the Japanese Toyline of the same name are fantastic, I adore the monowheel motorbike.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 03:12 PM)

Hasbro doesn't seem to have any interest in doing anything with the TV show, haven't greenlit any attempt to rerelease it, and there have been approaches, so I think it may be aother one of Tonka's legal carcrashes where everyone involved owns a piece and it's not really worth anyone sticking their neck out to claim ownership.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 01:47 PM)

I feel that homages and references would be a fun way to expand the GI Joe brand, and give a little love to lines that are unlikely to be acknowledged beyond such capacity.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 01:47 PM)

I was under the impression that Bandai was more the character design aspects, not story or characters.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 12:55 PM)

Also isn't it in rights limbo, given how it's loosely based on concepts from a BanDai series much like GoBots?

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 12:52 PM)

We don't need a Spiral Zone reboot, in a decade or so we'll be living it.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 12:49 PM)

Yeah, but it would fundamentally change the base premise of both gijoe and spiral zone. It's either not the world spanning threat it was, or the zone riders are backed up by a competent force. Either way, you compromise the context of both.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:19 PM)

Akin to what was done with Matt Tracker in 2008.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:18 PM)

Again, not a PURE transplant, but an integration of ideas and concepts into the world of GI Joe.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:18 PM)

@Wonko The Cobra Overlord, with help from Dr. Mindbender and Cesspool, develops machines capable of generating a mind-controlling fog. GI Joe stalwarts Flint, Airtight, Lifeline, and Psyche-Out are joined by Colonal Courage to infiltrate these zones and disable the machines. Figures would sport hostile environment suits (Eco warriors cross with Spiral Zone) and make new versions of the mono-wheel vehicles.

@  Maximus Ambus : (19 September 2020 - 09:39 AM)

Hasbroverse.2 with bought properties: Bravestarr, Ulysses 31, Galaxy Rangers, Shadow Raiders, Manta Force, Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors, Mighty Orbots, Jem and Bigfoot and the Muscle Machines. Seamless.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 08:32 AM)

While acknoledging spiral zone would be pretty boss, I doubt they could actively integrate it into anything else: given the scale of the villains deeds.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 08:03 AM)

COPS, Spiral Zone, Shadow Strikers, Action Man, Centurions, MegaForce. They wouldn’t replicate the old lines, but simply acknowledging their existence would be nifty.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 08:01 AM)

I would love to see GI Joe become something of a “celebration of action figures”. Hasbro has SO MANY old action figure properties, and many could slot into the GI Joe umbrella with relative ease.

@  Otaku : (19 September 2020 - 12:04 AM)

G.I. Joe, CyberCOPS, and M.A.S.K. all seem like something that would work from Animated or Prime, though CyberCOPS might have been a bit trickier from Prime.

@  Sabrblade : (18 September 2020 - 11:02 PM)

Rik Alvarez originally wanted the last episode of Prime to spinoff into a new MASK reboot.

@  Otaku : (18 September 2020 - 08:19 PM)

The failed Hasbroverse reminds me how so many things could have been spun off from Transformers: Animated and (after that) Transformers: Prime.

@  ▲ndrusi : (18 September 2020 - 12:43 PM)

Requiem of the Wreckers was post-Revolution, but it was also, you know, a single issue.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 September 2020 - 11:06 AM)

But Roche didn't have a series to keep out from the crossovers since Sins of the Wreckers was before Revolution.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 September 2020 - 11:01 AM)

Oh wait, that post said Roche, not Barber.

@  Rycochet : (18 September 2020 - 10:46 AM)

And then seemed surprised nobody particlarly wanted it.

Thanks, I'll pass it on and maybe give it a shot (I've been playing on Xbox, so I haven't needed to get it on PC yet). :)

What Ship are you on? Maybe we can do some grinding together some time... after I manage to get to 9 million for a freaking hairstyle. :wtf

Ship 2, though I haven't played much in a while -- I was in the closed beta, but I've been distracted by other things since open beta and launch. I really want to get back into it soon, though!

The game got updated two days ago, and now the lobby runs pretty smoothly. :thumbsup The issues with the client randomly not booting up and/or deleting its own game files are still apparently not 100% fixed for everyone, though.
 
Also, thank Primus the ability to access the Player Shops isn't locked off by Premium; it's given me the chance to collect Selvaria's gear from the new gacha wheel raffle without having to spend a single cent. Anyone want to join me while I attempt to earn 8 million meseta before the prices on the last two pieces I need get any higher? :D


I heard the installation was bricking some peoples' PCs. Anything on that?

I was going to try this game out.. but I do not wish to create an XBOX live ID.. so I skipped it.


Do you have a Microsoft account of any kind (OneDrive, Mixer, Windows)? They're all pretty much integrated together, so if you use something from Microsoft, you should be about good to go.

--LBD "Nytetrayn "

 

Oh I do have a Microsoft account, but after logging into that it takes me to a screen where I must still create and XBOX Live ID.

The hairstyle went down to 7 million in the time I was grinding like mad for it. Still not as good as 5 million before that, but at least I have it now. :D

Still, I've done what I set out to do. Time to uninstall the game. :wtf

Okay, this is kind of awesome (and maybe a bit tone-deaf, given everything that's going on in the US?...) :doh

 

I wish they made two more outfits though so that both styles could be worn by the opposite gender (the AMERICA suit for females, and... say, a futuristic fry cook outfit for males). That Uncle Sam Suit is sorely tempting me to make a male character right away. Guess I'll settle for the American flag cape for now. :D

 

Also, according to people who've played the JP version, this event is exclusive to the NA servers - so that's a bit of a sign that Sega and Microsoft are taking this release seriously. :)

Made it through the prologue as a CAST Ranger.  Interface is a bit clunky, feels like the game was designed around console controllers and the transfer to mouse and keyboard was a bit on the half-hearted side.  (For instance, in other action MMOs I can move around freely while shooting at someone and keep the gun pointed at the camera...but in PSO2 if I'm not tab-locked onto a target, I automatically shoot in the direction I'm moving regardless of where the camera is...there might be a setting to change to fix that, but it's kinda a bad default.  And when I am tab-locked, I can't move the camera freely, so my target might drift under a dialogue box and I can't directly do anything about it.)

 

Not immediately deleting it (which is what I did with Destiny 2), but not in a hurry to play more either.

I don't really have any groups to play with.

 

What's your timezone, and what time are you usually on? Oh, and what ship did you choose? Maybe we can try partying up.

 

For instance, in other action MMOs I can move around freely while shooting at someone and keep the gun pointed at the camera...but in PSO2 if I'm not tab-locked onto a target, I automatically shoot in the direction I'm moving regardless of where the camera is...there might be a setting to change to fix that, but it's kinda a bad default.  And when I am tab-locked, I can't move the camera freely, so my target might drift under a dialogue box and I can't directly do anything about it.

 

There's actually a toggle for 3rd-person manual aiming - though I don't know what key on a keyboard it's assigned to by default since I play primarily on a controller.

You sure? Default storage isn't shared across ships, so you'll essentially be starting from scratch on a new ship unless you fork over money to do a Ship Transfer of your character (and even then that'll apparently only allow that character to bring everything in their inventory, along with any cosmetics you used on that specific character).

 

For the record, all three of my characters are on Ship 1.
