Hey you, get moving, it's not too far, you're looking good so come as you are. Hey you, you never know what you'll see, when it's through that door with the 73.

@  Rycochet : (11 July 2020 - 01:10 PM)

Hey you, get ready, get on your feet. Get into gear and hit the street.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 12:46 PM)

I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 07:37 AM)

Trypticon so scared my Primus figure he turned into a ball.

Okay?

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:32 PM)

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (06 July 2020 - 11:18 AM)

Oof-

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 July 2020 - 01:10 AM)

I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 July 2020 - 10:19 PM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Oh the end of the Ottoman Empire of course.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 10:14 AM)

I remember that fight. I managed to take him down, but that was after several tries and several hours of grinding.

Good times.

I can't even imagine how bad he must be on the Hard mode.

Tidal Wave from the PS2 Transformers game was the first boss battle I fought that felt impossible without being cheap. As in "how the hell am I supposed to beat THAT thing?" I still think that's the most slept on level possibly in game history. I mean, you play through the dude's BODY as the level and afterwards the ENTIRE LEVEL transforms and you fight it. This was before God of War and Shadow of the Colossus. And it was hard as HELL.


Hells yeah. Basically having to snipe his head, whittling down his HP while running in between two mounds and hoping he doesn't crush you. What made it even more 'fun' was in when you rose the level of difficulty more of thoes annoying Air drones would show up to snipe you. you know, the ones who you needed the Flak Minicon to actually kill with one hit.


Airburst one of the best minicons IMO


Anubis Zone of Enders why...because no matter how you do it you can never truely defeait him

I change my opinion to:

EVERYTHING IN NINJA GAIDEN 2

especially the rocket guys. How stupid is that? I can block bullets, slay demons, jump from extreme heights and suffer no physical damage, but one idiot with a rocket launcher, there's no getting around that.

Honestly, after the first time, it's not really that hard. Levi's certainly a hair harder, and the Inspectors in OG 2 are a more consistent pain in the ass.

Have a unit with resupply, give someone EN drainer and someone else Armor breaker.
Drain the Rivale of EN making sure to always resupply the EN missile user, armor breaker when he has 0 EN and decimate him.

And yea, Ninja Gaiden 2 is terrible in the regard of BALANCED GAMEPLAY.

A few canidates:

Cress (Arena battle) in Tales of Destiny 2 (Enternia). Even after figuring out the best way to hurt him was he tough to take down. But man was it awsome!


Tales of Eternia's boss battles in general were glorious. And the optional boss battles? *dies of joy*. So f'n awesome.

The Tales team was so on the ball with that one. The revamped battle mechanics (skill chaining and no freeze-framing when spellcasting) added so much to the frenetic pace of the battles, and the bosses really took advantage of the system. The game balance was perfect. The difficult fights were legitimately difficult, and never cheap, and the fact that even normal random encounters could easily end with your face smashed into the ground meant you always had to keep on your toes, instead of random X button spamming like in so many other RPGs.

Seriously one of my favourite RPGs ever.

Not to say anything about the overall wealth of other things to do, like cooking, the bajillion mini-games, Title challenges, the ingenious magic-generation system, sidequests. It's all just...wow.

The 15-level optional dungeon after the end of .hack//Quarantine. Not because it's that hard or that tough, but because damn near EVERY ENEMY is a Data Bug. It's pure luck just getting to the bottom without getting your corruption high enough for an instant game over. And then the boss has to be Data Drained, too. Took me a few tries to get through that.

The fights in the Hidden Area in Armored Core 2: Another Age. I still can't beat the third one to this day.

Super Mario RPG had some good ones. There's Bowyer, who cuts you off from using a command (if he cuts off your items, you're boned). The Axem Rangers, who fight all five together, are really tough if you can't kill the one that blasts the entire party before the healer can put him back up. And the hidden boss Culex was pretty tough, with his elemental crystals.

But the toughest fight in the game?

The goddamn WEDDING CAKE. I kid you not.

Yaridovich? He's easy. The trick is to use the timed hit on....whichever magic it is that tells you an opponent's remaining HP. The timed hit tells you what the target is thinking; it reveals which one's the fake.

I was using all the immortals and Jansen at that point and did it in one shot.

Also, when you get Sed, use Sed. Sed is the jive.
