While I agree with you in principal: the problem here isn't the internet service providers. Though the onus of fixing it as a systemic problem is probably on them.

@  TM2-Megatron : (20 April 2021 - 03:16 PM)

then how would honest Canadian companies like Rogers or Bell be able to overcharge you for content, or not even make the content available in your region for varied and unknowable reasons?

@  wonko the sane? : (20 April 2021 - 02:33 PM)

It's on the internet, but the internet is being treated like it's regional. It doesn't matter that I'm in canada, It's the internet. Stop enforcing outdated and completely arbitrary broadcast restrictions on the global telecommunication network.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 April 2021 - 02:32 PM)

Nope, security is not my concern at all.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (20 April 2021 - 01:56 PM)

I mean, if you're not worried about security and just using it to access geolocked content, there are free vpns.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 April 2021 - 11:43 AM)

To watch cartoons on a free streaming program? Might as well write my representative if I have to fix problems other people caused.

I dunno if to call them the worst salesperson ever or the best.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 April 2021 - 01:33 PM)

They must not have really wanted to sell you anything.

@  Sabrblade : (16 April 2021 - 09:19 AM)

This just happened to be the first time one ever gave up and walked away immediately after ringing the bell. Like, no patience at all or something.

@  Sabrblade : (16 April 2021 - 09:17 AM)

Covid didn't stop salespeople from coming to my neighborhood. They are still a consistent annoyance.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 April 2021 - 08:16 AM)

Random like "Why does god allow terrible things?" or random like "You can see them too?!?"?

@  Echowarrior : (16 April 2021 - 07:36 AM)

And yet, I still have to deal with random idiots on the street asking me random questions.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 April 2021 - 04:04 PM)

door to door salesmen (or those offering religion) certainly are one of the things lost to COVID that I've missed the least

@  Sabrblade : (15 April 2021 - 10:07 AM)

They rang the bell and were walking away before I even got to the door mere seconds later.

@  Sabrblade : (15 April 2021 - 10:06 AM)

I just got ding-dong-ditched by a salesperson.

@  tigerhawk : (14 April 2021 - 01:20 AM)

A comic, yes, but we need a figure!

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (13 April 2021 - 06:27 AM)

No.. It's Tiberious Maximus... And there is a comic with such already. :D

@  Donocropolis : (12 April 2021 - 11:15 AM)

Yes. Color it like the Energon version of Unicron. Also, give us Fortress Tiberious.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 April 2021 - 09:49 AM)

Great. Now I want a borg cube unicron...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (12 April 2021 - 09:00 AM)

We still need Transformers x Star Trek toy.

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 April 2021 - 05:39 AM)

I saw most of them at retail at TRU, but that's not an option in the US anymore.

@  tigerhawk : (12 April 2021 - 04:21 AM)

Dibs on naming the Ark robot Arkonus.

@  Kalidor : (11 April 2021 - 09:48 PM)

The only Titan figure I ever saw at retail was Trypticon at Ollie's

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 April 2021 - 09:12 PM)

Robosen Prime has market crossover with not just the toy collectors, but robotics enthusiasts quite willing to pay that price for a product like this.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 April 2021 - 08:33 PM)

One of my two local TRUs will stock exactly ONE titan at a time. It usually ends up "clearanced" for about 20 bucks off cause no one is willing to pay for at full price OR discounted.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 April 2021 - 07:56 PM)

Most stores don't seem to want to stock Commanders or Titans, never mind Unicron.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (11 April 2021 - 07:55 PM)

I wonder if Unicron going to crowdfuning wasn't just a price issue but also stores not wanting to stock and transport something so huge.

@  TM2-Megatron : (11 April 2021 - 07:47 PM)

It is, although this thing could also be considered a STEM educational tool

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 April 2021 - 07:33 PM)

Doesn't change the fact that, for most people, $700 is a pretty hefty investment for a toy.

@  TM2-Megatron : (11 April 2021 - 07:17 PM)

I dunno, $700 doesn't seem that bad for what it does. Some of those Masterpiece figures seem to go for at least half that price, and they don't have any actual robots or even electronics.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 April 2021 - 05:35 PM)

Not to mention wallet-shattering.


I'm shocked: The DS is awesome

I had the original DS when it launched. No good games and the screen shattered in a month.

With the new guitar hero game, I caved and purchased a used red DS Lite from Gamestop. Picked up New Super Mario Bros, FFXII Revenant Wings, Trauma Center: Under the Knife, and Guitar Hero: On Tour.

Any good recommendations for games? I haven't been following the DS releases for the past few years.

RPGs and Side Scrollers especially.

And has anyone played the Inuyasha RPG? I considered it, but figured licensed games usually blow.

The Castlevania games are all good, as are the Ace Attorney games if you like interactive fiction, and I've been really enjoying Space Invaders Extreme lately.

Final Fantasy Tactics.

Seriously, either the first one or the second one.

They're godly addictive crack.

Fire Emblem is fun as well, but I'm having twice as much fun with FFTA right now.

Also, the Megaman battle network games for GBA are really awesome.

I suggest the Castlevania's as well.

MegaMan ZX is decent, though it's hard to get from one area to another thanks to poor level planning.

MegaMan ZX: Advent however is AMAZING. I highly suggest you check it out.

If you can stand point and click style RPGs I really recomend Trace Memory. It should be fairly cheap now a days.

As for the Inu Yasha RPG.

Question 1: Are you a fan of the series?

Question 2: Are you a fan of the story in RPGs?

If you've answered no to either, dont' bother. I myself am enjoying it for it's story, and I like the series. But the battle system is nothing to write home about. It's sturdy enough to be tolleratible, but if you're looking for something like a Final Fantasy battle system. Look elsewhere. I'd suggest looking it up on YouTube to get some visuals on the battles and judge from there if you want to try it.

If you're up for Custom Robo, I'd be happy to trade it for a Voyager Animated Grimlock if you happen to have some in your area. icon-fire.gif I'm done with the game, still got all the paperwork and the case and whatnot.

I'm gonna get raped for saying this, but I really didn't like Custom Robo DS. I thought the overworld graphics were bad, the combat frustrating, and the story made Bayblade seem epic.

All the Megaman Battle Network games are good, but I tend to enjoy the odd numbered ones best, especially BN5 for the DS.

I'm shocked that Contra 4 has not been mentioned yet. SHOCKED! Contra 4 is everything amazing about Contra-it's hard as hell, lovingly tongue-in-cheek and balls to the wall a blast to play. Oh, and it's hard. Very hard.

Other recommendations-the Transformers DS games (Autobot and Decepticon versions) any of the Final Fantasy remakes (GBA version included), Sigma Star Saga (GBA RPG/shooter) and Drill Dozer for the GBA. Also, you can't go wrong with Pokemon Diamond and Pearl.

Also, if you like Mario Kart, then Mario Kart DS is a lot of fun.
