And Ginrai aka "Magnus Prime, Metalhawk, "Liokaiser", etc. The real characters that Warden actually doesn't know about are the late EuroUK characters like the Turbomasters/Predators

@  Sabrblade : (21 November 2019 - 11:06 AM)

Warden and Friends did give us a Lione (Sawback) and a Shuffler

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 November 2019 - 07:26 AM)

Or prominently featured in IDW, or an easy repaint of an existing toy.

@  Paladin : (21 November 2019 - 07:12 AM)

was she in the first 3 seasons of the cartoon? If not then she's on no one's list because they don't think she exists.

@  Cyoti : (20 November 2019 - 11:23 PM)

It's probably stuck on the low priority end of Warden's to-do list.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 November 2019 - 10:45 PM)

Because the only full-body Nightbeat was that Bumblebee with a new head one.

Hound is at least a very good toy.

@  ThunderWear : (18 November 2019 - 09:11 AM)

Hound is the only other one that even comes close to Chromia in my area, and he ships in two separate waves.

This might be how they finally get rid of all the Chromias. I've not seen a shelfwarmer like that in ages.

It was set in the forties, featured Nazi's as the villains and had Kiko fight mostly Ice Age animals and a mythical dragon that now ruled the island guarding Kongs treasure.

Nah, he just has to keep up his plot insurance payments so he can shoot his way out of the Sarlacc again.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 03:55 PM)

Admittedly, it's been a long time since I've been to a walk-in clinic, as I tend not to get sick (and the one time I do every 4-5 years, I prefer just riding it out at home), but the last time I went I'm pretty sure you could just show up, no appointment. It may be different in Quebec,though

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:36 PM)

One thing to note about health insurance in Germany is that we have a two-class system: mandatory health insurance is basically the economy class, while private health insurance is the business class.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:32 PM)

My local doctor is actually a shared office with several doctors where you will get randomly assigned to one of the doctors available that day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:30 PM)

Also, employers are required by law to cover part of their employees' health insurance fees, so I only have to pay my part.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:28 PM)

Basic examinations and sick notes (known as "work-inability certificates" in Germany) for the employer are covered by our health insurances by default.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 November 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Around here, we can go to a walk-in clinic whenever, but might have to wait in the queue until there's a doctor available, which can take hours on a busy day. And then hope our insurance will cover anything.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2019 - 07:38 AM)

There actually are a good number of clinics around here: but the walk ins require an appointment (what?) and are only done once a week. IF you can get an appointment, you see a doctor usually within 40 minutes, but good luck getting the appointment.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

Depending on the day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

We have family doctors (called "house doctors") with regular office hours where you may need an hour or two of waiting time.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 12:50 AM)

Two weeks? That seems a little long; are there not a lot of walk-in clinics around you?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 07:01 PM)

Does germany make it quick and easy to see a doctor too? Cause an emergency doctor visit can take two weeks out here, and an emergency ROOM visit can take 18-24 hours.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:43 PM)

(Good thing is, under German law, if you call in sick during your vacation and see a doctor immediately, you get to keep your vacation days.)

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:42 PM)

Too bad. My plans wee to do two more overtime hours before having my last day of vacation for the year on Friday. Oh well.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:41 PM)

So I'm currently on medical leave for a particularly stupid reason: Burned my back with a hot-water bag while sleeping last night. Though the doctor said I'm hardly the first person to have this happen to them.

@  Patch : (13 November 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Just a particularly odious example of the 90s era of depicting transgender women as either the subject of crude humor, or "Jerry Springer" material.

Hmmm, RPG would probably take first priority but I'd just as soon priority a Platform game...

It'd probably be something like:

RPG/Platformer (depending on my mood that day)
Survival Horror
Music Rhythm
Mecha
Shooter
Fighter
Arcade
FPS

There is little hope for a Puzzle game to catch my interest, and there's no chance a racing or piloting game would catch my interest at all. It 'could' happen, but I wouldn't count on it.

As for sports, hell no. I own two sport games to date: MegaMan Soccer and RibbitKing

Depending on my mood, RPG or action/platformer takes the top spot. I like fighters and Guitar Hero as well. I don't care much for strategy games, and the closest I usually come to a shooter is Mega Man.

I don't play sports games. I'm not interested in the real thing, no way I'm playing a video game version.

Also depends on my mood, but here's the general priority: RPGs, Detective-type (eg. Phoenix Wright), Music/rhythm, puzzles/brain exercise. Sometimes I'll pick up a simulation, action, fighting, or platformer game. Once in a great while I'll poke around in a tactical game, though I quickly lose patience. The only "sports" games I enjoy are ones like DDR or Wii Sports. And then you get games that don't really fit into a category like Katamari. icon-fire.gif

I like FPS's, that being said they either have to have 1. a good storyline to go with or 2. some degree of tactics/strategy beyond "spray bullets at everything", preferably both.

I also enjoy action games with puzzle components like Mario, Lego Starwars, etc.

I wouldn't call myself a puzzle game fan, though I can be fascinated by tetris for hours.

I don't like sports games - I'd rather play the real thing if I must - and I find myself getting disoriented, if not motion sick, playing racers or flying games with the "you in the cockpit" look. occasionally FPS's will do this to me as well, though not as badly (probably because the scenery doesn't move as quickly.) Again, having had real planes and real cars, sims just aren't the same. And I don't care for fighting games...I don't mind fighting bosses etc to advance, but I get bored when the game is nothing BUT fighting.

Don't really mind. If a games' decent and worth playing, it's, err, decent and worth playing regardless of the arbitrary idea of "genre".

Still, I know I won't play. FPSes because they aren't really my thing in terms of personal taste (I'm neutral about them). Oh and turn-based RPGs, which I genuinely detest.

Probably easier to list my least-favorite genres....

3D Shooters(oddly, I rather enjoy a good side-scrolling shooter, though I must admit I royally suck at them) and sports games.

Though even then there are exceptions...(Bioshock comes to mind)

I will admit that quirky, gimmicky games are a guilty pleasure of mine... Things like Super Monkey Ball, Katamari or Boom Blox have a strange appeal to me.

If digging through a discount bin, I'm assuming it's old/outdaed games.

So shooters are out of the question. As fun as they are (one of my favorite genres), they are dependent on graphics. When you play Gears or Halo or COD 4, there is no playing Prey or Quske 4 afterwards.

So I'd say

1) RPG (old RPGs are just as good, if not better than new ones.)

TIED WITH

1) Music (I love DDR and all the variations. Guitar Hero as well. Old games NEVER lose interest in this genre. They are just more songs for the same game.)




2)Platform
3)Franchise (Sonic, Mario, Metal Gear, Megaman, etc... Things I grew up with and buy the moment I see the name)
4) Racing. Arcade style street racing and futuristic racing. NO SIMULATORS (no fun).
5)Puzzle
6) Miscellaneous

Whatever Rock Band is categorized as, that's my number one. Arcade maybe? Other than that, I tend to go for platformers and RPGs (Ratchet and Clank, Jak and Daxter, Fable, Kingdom Hearts). Fighting and FPS would be next, with Racing all the way at the bottom.

I dissagree. Rock Band and Guitar Hero are NOTHING like playing the real thing. It's just a game meant for the player to have fun, and that's exactly what I had playing them. Fun.

I'd suggest trying them first if you haven't yet before taking that stand. If you have played them and decide it's not your thing, then hey, your choice.

I have played all the games I just will NOT play anymore. That includes sports games, which are as dull as I figured, and puzzle games like Tetris, which I realized is very repetitive and boring after about an hour of gameplay. As for racing, just could never get into them. Few execptions.
