I want Dr. Smoov to RUN

@  Bass X0 : (29 September 2020 - 03:15 PM)

I want Dr. Smoov or the Jaboody Show guys to dub over WFC with voices and personalities more in line with the 80s cartoon. That means no more jerk Bumblebee.

@  Maximus Ambus : (29 September 2020 - 01:35 AM)

Ever notice Kath SOucie's Janine in the later episodes of Real Ghostbusters sounds like Tara Strong's Sari Sumdac?

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 September 2020 - 02:10 PM)

I wish they were more universal like Beast Wars, Animated or Prime and as professionally done,

@  Maximus Ambus : (28 September 2020 - 02:06 PM)

The Netflix shows are done for adults, the Generation toyline is for adults who grew up with G1.

@  Sabrblade : (28 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

Who said it ever was?

Whatever happened to WFC Earthrise being a kids show X'D

@  wonko the sane? : (28 September 2020 - 11:43 AM)

Cool, my last tablet couldn't run it, and I stopped caring by the time I got the new one. So thanks!

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:27 AM)

There are crossover characters, but the amount and distribution... Marvel Vs Capcom this ain't.  If @wonko the sane? my bad!

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:21 AM)

I've been playing for *checks account* 1002 days, 23 hours.  So, by 2021, it will have been three years.  I think it takes place in its own continuity, largely inspired by G1 but borrowing from other places.

@  Otaku : (28 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

@wonko the sane? Can only speak for Earth Wars, but so few they're easy to forget.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 September 2020 - 07:39 AM)

Didn't they already do the across universes thing in that tablet game?

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:30 AM)

Also, make the setting an amalgamation of different Transformers series, rather than based on a specific one. Bring in things like 'Sentinel Major' as the primo Autobot jerk, and sleek car mode Vehicons as the Decepticons' basic grunt.

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:27 AM)

KT just needs to incorporate the vehicle modes into the combat system, like Platinum did for Devastation, so they're for more than just wheeling it across the battlefield. =P

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 05:25 AM)

Transformers: Warriors of Cybertron! =D

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (28 September 2020 - 05:15 AM)

I want a Power Rangers Mosu. I would also take a Transformers Mosu. :D

@  TheMightyMol... : (28 September 2020 - 04:50 AM)

It even ended on a sequel hook.

@  Demovere Xeno : (28 September 2020 - 04:40 AM)

Man, I just want another Devastation game... =(

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 September 2020 - 01:53 AM)

Aren't TFs way more varied than Joes, as far as they'd work in gameplay? Like, Omega Supreme is vastly different from Bumblebee.

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 10:16 PM)

Hell, ripoff Super Robot Wars withTFs

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 10:16 PM)

IDK they could make something like FF tactics or Fire Emblem ripoff with Robots and i'd buy it

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 September 2020 - 09:43 PM)

See, I feel GI Joe (with it's varied cast) is a better fit for a strategy game, where as Transformers feels more suited for a shooter.

@  Maruten : (27 September 2020 - 08:28 PM)

I might give them points for making a strategy game if it's actually a good strategy game.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 07:48 PM)

I mean, points for making a strategy game instead of third person shooter, but: urrrrgggg. Cyberverse.

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 07:47 PM)

A transformers game for the switch? *checks* Urrrggg... cyberverse...

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 September 2020 - 06:28 PM)

October will be a big month for Hasbro fans: Zoids, GI Joe AND Transformers all have brand new console games. All on the Switch at that!

@  wonko the sane? : (27 September 2020 - 09:04 AM)

At least in animated he was more driven than just "loyal bootlick".

@  unluckiness : (27 September 2020 - 08:29 AM)

Oof, That's a huge downgrade

@  Maximus Ambus : (27 September 2020 - 02:35 AM)

After rewatching Animated Sound and Fury, in my head canon Titans Return Soundwave is that Soundwave.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:09 PM)

On an unrelated note: I just got the BBTS email about kingdom pre-orders... and even the stuff I don't want I'm perfectly willing to get if it means I can have the rest of it.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:08 PM)

It's digimon. So first one, then the other.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

50/50 odds, it's either a helicopter with limbs, or a scantily-clad human with heli blades on their back. If female, 90% odds on the second one.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2020 - 12:39 PM)

I read that as "Helicoptermon" and wondered what kind of Digimon that was.

@  Bass X0 : (26 September 2020 - 12:35 PM)

Helicopter-mom, transform!

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 September 2020 - 11:58 PM)

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.

Ok, I have to know. I beta'd this heap of disappointment from October until it was "released". Then, I played it for 3 months after it's "release". I couldn't take it anymore after that. I was soooo disappointed with everything that was promised, how great it was supposed to be, even what it was like in early beta compared to what it was like when it released. At times, I still dream about it and think about my little Gnome Blood Mage.

Reading MMORPG.com's forum today brought me upon a post that said, "Should Vanguard be scrapped?" and it got me wondering about it. I miss it from time to time, and I was wondering, who here still plays it, have played it, and, if you're like me, are planning on *maybe* installing it again sometime at the end of the year or the beginning of next year, just to see if it became worthwhile?

Played it towards the end of its beta and a few months after.

SOO much wasted potential. What's so disappointing is that like SWG, the core ideas behind the game were sound, but the implementation was riddled with bugs and balance issues. Had a Gnome Psoionocist as my main, myself.

The thing would crash my machine routinely and they SHOULD have used a GFX engine designed for seamless worlds and not that hackjob they did with the Unreal engine.

I'm gonna keep my eye on it and hope they improve the overall experience. Currently NOT doing the MMO thing at all, though I've got a few upcoming ones on my radar.

I bought it for 20 dollars yesterday and am playing the free month.

Former players can play for free this month -- it says all prior accounts are active.

If you want to hook up, let me know. I don't know how the game used to be, but as a noob, I'm rather enjoying the different classes and stuff.

Yea I have been playing it for a little bit...every time they do that whole "hey it's free come look!" thing I always fall for it and go look. It has improved a ton compared to the way it used to be. My little Gnome Bloodmage is still there, and she's still fun. I don't know though, it's still...missing...something. I don't know what it is though.

I am on Seradon, if you see a little Gnome running around named Inabi, or a wolf running around named Aamalthea (or Aamalthia) that's me icon-hotrod.gif

Hmm, guess I can dig out my old install disks and give it another whirl. Dunno if I'll play my old Gnome Psionicist or create a new character.(If I do create a new character, I have a feeling it'll once again be a Gnome, though... Either that or a Raki.

It's probably missing cohesion. The game really suffered when the art director died before the art was completed, leaving it a bit of a mishmash of different styles that don't flow together very well. Being bounced around from publisher to publisher probably didn't help much either.

If you guys decide on a server, let me know... I'm re-installing now and I'm sure I'll be sitting around for a couple of hours waiting for the patching to finish.

Oh it looks great now. I haven't been to a ton of places (only 28) but it's nice. They added a bunch of stuff including....racial mounts.

Why everyone likes to shaft Gnomes I'll never understand but we...well we...we get to ride a chicken icon-screamer.gif Everybody else gets cool stuff like a spider, a worg, a freakin scorpion and a panther but we OH lets give the Gnomes the chicken! HUR HUR!

...sorry. I was so mad when I found out I went and bought myself a camel to ride so it could spit on all the other races and their neat mounts!

Ah, I don't mind riding a chicken. Almost everyone else gets mammals or arthropods... Gnomes are the only race to get an avian icon-hotrod.gif

Heck, it could be worse... Half Elves are stuck with a TURTLE icon-fire.gif

Seradon is the best. Hands down. Unless you like pvp, but honestly games like this one and Eq2 should not have PvP. But this one actually does try to separate pvp from pve (unlike some companies coughblizzardcough) so it's not as bad but being free game from level 7 really isn't fun. At least it wasn't for me!

Well, I enjoy PvP and think its an important part of the game, but I also enjoy questing and dungeons. I think if you don't do one or the other, you're missing out on content.

Thing is MMO's end up with so much content that unless you play 24/7 for a LONG stretch of time, or are VERY good at the game(I'm aware that I rather suck at MMO's due to my kind of erratic play-style) you're gonna miss out on content weather you PVP or not. With Vanguard, content and play-style are rather varied and there are numerous sub-games outside of PvP or PvE combat(Despite it's issues, Vanguard DOES have one of the deepest crafting systems currently on the market and the diplomacy sub-game could be spun-off as a half-decent, though limited, card game in it's own right)

*edit* I wonder what server my Gnome ended up on....

*edit 2* UGH... patch download keeps 'canceling'....

Diplomacy is an addiction waiting to happen. I tried it once and ...didn't want to stop lol. I'll have to admit that you're right about crafting, it's pretty danged fun and easy to get started with. I never thought I'd say this but I like their harvesting. Especially foresting...seeing some huge tree fall after I've chopped it and the ground shake when it hits...I never get tired of that. It's something I'm surprised I don't see in other games, really.

My bf had the cancelling download issue. You might have to scan your files at some point.

I had to scan a couple of times... I think there are some issues with the server.

*edit* Well, after several issues, the client is FINALLY patched up. Looks like my characters ended up on Xeth after the spat of server mergers..

Might just re-create my main on the other one.. Not like I remember how to play after over a year anyway...
