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?

@  -LittleAutob... : (28 September 2020 - 12:43 PM)

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)

@  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)

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 September 2020 - 02:23 PM)

@  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)

@  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.

2. Animal Crossing Wii (heavily rumored to be finally officially announced)
3. Resident Evil 5

Plus, of course, any surprises for the 360, Wii, or DS.

thinking back to Transformers the Movie game, where the developers downscaled it a bit to medium res on the Wii and the fact the consoles capable of HDR lighting and heat haze effect, it's still a possability otherwise Capcom has a 'suirprising take on a next gen favourite' for the Wii.

Stupid Techs who set up the 360 have it running through Composit.

Worse yet.. no one has noticed!

Better graphics(which is part of the presentation and the presentation is an important part in the game, as well as the marketing of said game), more classical gameplay(I prefer two sticks and a couple of buttons to motion control.), plus think of the audience(Late teens to 20 somethings) they're aiming for and what systems they have.(This of course, is a generalization as to who would actually buy RE5 in the first place. I consider the fact that everyone and their dogs have Wiis now adays, but for the most part, Wii owners are pick up and play, or 'simple' style gamers. Fun, but not super complex, difficult to play fun.)

Plus, from a gameplay stand point if they're going for realisim(something that I happen to find profoundly stupid, considering that video games are an escapist genre), aiming a pistol at a horde of zombies is not easy to do, hell, aiming a gun is an all around difficult thing to do. The point and click style shooting of the Wii could remove some of the realism they're going for, considering RE4 as an example(Which is really, a masterpeice of a game.) I'm not sure if that's how it works on the Wii version of RE4, having never played it, though. (All my friends who have it got it for PS2 or Gamecube when it was originally released, so yeah). Anyone care to fill me in?

360 and PS3 are the way to go for M rated titles, both from a developer sense and a player sense, which is in an odd way, a sort of symbotic relationship.

The Wii is a pick up and play sort of console, or at least, it's marketed in such a way, and I'd say on the majority, most owners of the Wii wouldn't buy, or even be interested in, Resident Evil 5. Same goes for GTA games.

Games come out or don't come out because of the marketing, and Capcom is clearly trying to appeal to the disposable income, low responsbilites crowd (Late teens to 20 somethings.) who want to shoot the crap out of some zombies.

and Older Adults and Kids aren't really the target audience for Zombie shooting action, and unfortunately, that's the target audience of the Wii, meaning that developers of more complex, M rated games will for the majority, place games on the 360 and/or PS3. (Not to say that Developers don't throw more classical gamers(I'd say the SNES generation. The NES generation is a bit wider, but the SNES era tends to be where today's definition of 'gamer' came from.) who have the Wii a bone every once and a while. No more heroes is a good example.)

That's how I see it, anyways.

The Wii version of RE4 pretty much perfected an amazing game. The wiimote controls were really just beautiful--simple, accurate, and fun. And yeah, last I heard, it sold pretty well... given that it was already out for years on GCN, PS2, and PC, that's no small feat.

So yeah, I think people would buy it, and I think it'd be a great thing... even given the obvious graphical hit required.

Amazingly well is debatable.(Halo 3 and GTA IV fall into 'amazingly well' catagory for the current generation, others pale in comparison.)

RE4 had word of mouth, extremely good reviews and the fact that it was a masterpeice of a game on it's side. Meaning that with additional content, people were picking up Wii's for RE4, not the other way around. (The consoles marketed at children[which is never a bad way to go, when it comes to marketing] and a marketing pool that has been largely been ignored over the past few generations, the adults who haven't played video games since Atari)

Unfortunately, as much as the Wii will be defended, sales figures brought up, etc. it doesn't change that fact that the two renouned, M rated franchise games came out/ are coming for the 360 and the PS3 and not the Wii.

Also, what I found interesting about the gamecube/PS2 versions of RE4 was that the guns were hard as hell to shoot, accurately. Simplicity really takes away from some the realism. (Which is a term I hate in reference to video games, but meh. People want it, so developers are gonna do it.)

Indeed and they sold in record shattering numbers, on two(technically one, in Halo 3's case) system(s) that are in less households(in fact, quite a few less households) than the Wii.

Interesting.
