Yeah, my hybrid does that when idling or at low speeds. Otherwise it's almost completely silent.

That might actually be a fake noise they make electric cars make so pedestrians can hear them. Some cars even let you pick out what noise they make.

Actually heard a car with that electric, scifi-hum to it. Made me realize that we kinda are living in the future...

Nearly thirty Studio Series figs including the '86 line. "I won't touch that." I said a few years ago when deluxe wave 5 came to my store for a tenner each. My latest one' is 72 Starscream.

The 1988 G1 line up could all have been done as Titan Master things, I figure the Pretenders could be done as Titan Master Drones and Prime Master shells.

@  Cyoti : (08 May 2021 - 11:14 AM)

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.

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.

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?

@  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.

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.

Is there not already a thread for this?

I've been radio silent on the game for a while. It was supposed to be my birthday present back in March but it's finally out.

We got it on both Steam and PS4 and started playing last night/this morning.

Luckily I haven't seen the many bugs that are reported, but Kayla keeps crashing. Hopefully they'll get this patched up asap.

The character creator is better than some games but still lacking in some areas. I think Saints Row 4 is actually a lot more robust. But it's still more detailed.

The weird thing is how you go in and make the genitals. For both boobs and dongs you only get 3 options of sizes rather than a slider.

Combat will take some getting used to. I've never been very good at shooting and even less so when using a controller (I'm primarily on PS4). I am still technically in the tutorial but I got into my first real combat situation. I was going for the melee brawler type but I didn't do so well in my first fight.

There are three factions to choose from. I started with Corporate but when I'm done with the "tutorial" I'm going to make a new character and try the others, assuming you can run games concurrently.

Besides combat there's also hacking and stealth options to achieve goals and there's a whole crafting system I haven't even touched yet.

I'm also very much looking forward to the driving.

There are dialog trees but I don't know how much they change outcomes like say, Mass Effect, but it does have a similar vibe.

What are your thoughts on the game?

the game has a light mechanic that can cause seizures.

Gamers wasted no time sending clips of the seizure-causing effect to critics.

I already have it paid off, so all I have to do is pick it up on my way home. I didn't realize your characters junk was part of the creation. Is it going to be displayed that much in gameplay? That's...different.

There's a pretty strong sexual content and nudity warning associated with the game.

 

Gonna grab it after christmas, as I expect at least one steam card then.

Mine is on PS4 Pro and I haven't had any issues really and the game looks good. I understand it's the base model PS4 and XBONE that are having performance issues. 

 

I haven't actually seen any indication that your character's junk is in the game but I am still not that far into it. There's definitely nudity in the game but that's not unheard of. 

 

Right now the vibe I get from it is that it's a bit of a mix of GTA, Mass Effect and maybe Division 2 in terms of feel.

I wasn't going to buy this, because who has time for big games now?, and I just caved and bought Valhalla because okay, Vikings and junk. Haven't played an AC since the original which I didn't much enjoy. AC:V is kind of Ghost of Tsushima-y in a lot of ways (which does score it some points), but clunkier and less fun, so... let's push Valhalla aside and try Cyberpunk 2077 because HYYYYYYYYYPE and probably I'll trade it in as soon as something else interesting hits, but it might be worth a look.

Played an hour or two today and it plays muuuuuch more pleasantly than AC:V. Keen to log more time.

I've got a meager 3.5 hours into it currently. I keep getting tired and going to bed. Not because of the game but because I'm sick again.

They did a hot fix patch to get it up to 1.04. I skimmed the notes but almost all of it was stuff I haven't seen in the game yet anyway. The only thing I recognized was the brain dance stuff with the flashing lights. I didn't get a seizure over it but I'm glad they toned it down

With several more hours under my belt... I'm definitely sold. It could use some polish; I've had one crash but nothing majorly buggy yet (which makes me pretty lucky).

But it's so good I don't give a crap. The quality of what they got right eclipses everything that might bring the experience down. Primarily, the writing and performances are just spectacular. Long time since I played a game that gave me an "I love this movie, I can't wait to see what happens next" feeling. It's so effortlessly cinematic and immersive. Even when you're surrounded - as you literally always are - by hundreds of tiny pieces of random crap that you're expected to pick up (juice bottle! used cigarette! moldy shoelace! rifle bullets! mouse droppings! CRAFT SOMETHING) it still doesn't creep towards the dreaded This Is Just A Video Game vibe that cracks the facade of many games.

It's just fun and great and beautiful. It's far exceeded my expectations.

I just had my first crash. That's not bad all things considered. I'm on a base PS4. 
 

I'm finding the controls and menus a bit mind numbing. But I'm also irl sick, so that could definitely be affecting things.

 

It really is a bit of bad luck this finally released just as I came down with Covid. Like, Final Fantasy XV took a piece of my heart when it's what kept me sane when I had a kidney stone. But this I'm feeling kinda meh about because my head is so fuzzy and I'm so low-energy I just can't keep up with it.

 

But that hardly seems fair to the game. I seem to be one of the lucky few not running into a bunch of bugs. I don't want to hate on a game because I just happen to play it while I'm sick. Though I wound up absolutely loving Final Fantasy XV for keeping me sane while I was sick. If it's fair to judge a game one way, is it fair to judge a game the other?

 

 I think I'll keep playing it for a while. I'm not running into the horrible bugs others seem to be. It's not a bad game at all. Hell, maybe once I'm over this damn bug, I may start to love it.

 

And I lost my train of thought. Sick posting is probably as understandable as drunk posting.

I went through something similar to your FF15 experience last year. I was basically glued to the couch for a month following a botched surgery. The surgery just happened to be the same day DQ11 came out on the Switch, so I ended up spending a ton of time with that game. It was not a pleasant month, but getting to spend so much time on a game I really enjoyed definitely helped a lot.

 

Anyway, I've seen a lot of ads for this game, but really don't know anything about it other than that Keanu Reeves is in it. What little I'd seen about it made me think it's a shooter, which is not a type of game I enjoy at all, so I've largely ignored it. But when I look it up on Wikipedia, it says it's an action RPG? Between that and the positive comments here, guess I'll have to give it another look.

It's an action RPG akin to Saints Row or GTA in the sense that you have a main story and a bunch of side missions and the city is completely open world for exploration. There are shooting elements but you could also potentially make a stealth hacker that could avoid many combat situations.

It's a first-person open-world shooter RPG. Lke I said, my reaction's been kinda meh. It's decently enjoyable. My think being sick just kinda jades the experience.

 

The biggest thing though is that even though I haven't personally had any really bad glitches, I know a lot of people have. So maybe don't get it on vanilla hardware (use at least a PS4 Pro/X-box equivalent if not a PS5/X-box equivalent. Even better would probably be to just wait until everything's had a chance to be patched out.

It's one of those nicely flexible games that can be what you want it to be... if you like shooting, you can shoot. If not, you can kill everyone with your sword or baseball bat or dildo, or you can sneak past them, possibly after hacking their eyeballs so they're temporarily blind. At any rate, there's a lot of room for choosing a style that suits you.

Yeah. I don't want to get into the semantics too much, but a game with shooting isn't necessarily a shooter. In any case, I haven't had a chance to play it all week but I've run into minimal problems on the PS4 Pro so I wont be returning it. 

 

The PC is something that I'd consider returning because we got it on Steam but they have their "If you've played less than 2 hours" as one of the requirements. But it has crashed and was glitched out and says the gameplay time is "101.4 hours" which is horse shit because it was just counting time while the client wasn't even open. But I guess they'll fix it eventually right?
