At its worst it was better than MASK, sure.

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 September 2020 - 02:15 AM)

At it's worst it still stomped all over the failed Hasbroverse. Roberts and Roche kept their respective series well out of that one for the same reasons Bendis kept a tight leash on Ultimate Spider-Man when Loeb and Miller wanted greater control for Ultimatum.

@  Maruten : (17 September 2020 - 06:37 PM)

That's so accurate it's physically painful.

@  Rycochet : (17 September 2020 - 02:05 PM)

The Red Dwarf of Transformers? An interesting, innovative and genuinely funny series that descended into a self referential mess of cliches that continues long after it should have been put out to pasture and rendered nerly everyone thoroughly unlikeable? That seems about right.

@  Bass X0 : (17 September 2020 - 01:59 PM)

MTMTE and Lost Light are the Red Dwarf of Transformers stories, as opposed to the others which are more like Star Wars and Star Trek.

@  Kalidor : (17 September 2020 - 01:37 PM)

Anyone in CONUS want a Skylynx for $100 shipped?

@  Maximus Ambus : (17 September 2020 - 01:34 PM)

Maybe an acquired taste in that's in that it's from a fan raised on the UK run where Transformers wasn't taken so seriously in many stories, especially some Earthforce standalones.

@  Paladin : (17 September 2020 - 09:47 AM)

so, terrible?

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 September 2020 - 09:26 AM)

Yeah I think at that point Lost Light is just the '86 movie without the soundtrack.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (17 September 2020 - 02:28 AM)

So, exctly what Triangleman just said.

@  Bass X0 : (17 September 2020 - 12:36 AM)

A few of the same characters.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 September 2020 - 12:07 AM)

Now having actually read Galaxies #10, I don't actually see what it has in common with Lost Light at all besides featuring Ultra Magnus, Chromedome, and a spaceship.

@  ▲ndrusi : (16 September 2020 - 05:33 PM)

So, it's exactly like Lost Light, then.

@  Bass X0 : (16 September 2020 - 01:52 PM)

What if Lost Light was stripped bare of its charm and humor? Galaxies #10 is the answer.

@  ▲ndrusi : (16 September 2020 - 01:49 PM)

I didn't mean "*exactly* 15 years ago and no other time."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 September 2020 - 12:27 AM)

I mean, the comment was about a linewide gimmick of 15 years ago, not a gimmick only present in a minority of toys from that year.

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 September 2020 - 12:14 AM)

I'd like a western take on the UT for it's twentieth, like a annual CG or anime movie on Netflix that is a condensed retelling similar to the film Macross/Robotech: Do You Remember Love.

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 September 2020 - 12:11 AM)

Giant Planet had them, Energon had a few. I've been disappointed in Siege for not having something for the Micromasters, Earthrise has with the base bots but they've been wasted here.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (15 September 2020 - 10:47 PM)

Wasn't 15 years ago Cyber Keys rather than Minicons?

@  Steevy Maximus : (15 September 2020 - 09:38 PM)

By and large, even the worst Minicons have some unique engineering or design elements. The nostalgia factor aside, Micromasters got pretty samey after you got several, especially the "proper" 89 series.

@  unluckiness : (15 September 2020 - 07:13 PM)

There's certainly a load of crummy ones to sift through

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 September 2020 - 05:29 PM)

Or both. There's some overlap.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 September 2020 - 03:19 PM)

People either hated minicons or became completely addicted to them.

@  ▲ndrusi : (15 September 2020 - 03:17 PM)

A properly-planned theme, or as people called it 15 years ago, a stupid linewide baby toy gimmick that ruins the toys.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 September 2020 - 01:39 PM)

Look on the bright side: at least Kingdom has a properly-planned theme to its name unlike Power of the Primes being a hilariously transparent junk drawer for the PWT, and with letdown Prime toys to boot.

You can't force other people to sell; ao despite abundance the prices are high. I'm just a small scale hobbyist, I'm not looking to cash in just help other folks with their... uh, passion.

@  Rycochet : (13 September 2020 - 01:28 PM)

It's like diamonds, artificial rarity boosting the price,

@  wonko the sane? : (13 September 2020 - 01:25 PM)

I call bull carp on that. There's a HUGE secondary market, and gently used pieces go for tens of thousands.

So yeah, let's talk about the games that people praise that didn't do it for you. Mine was Eternal Darkness. I was expecting a game that would manage to scare me while also playing tricks on my mind. Unfortunately, I thought it was a standard, Tomb Raider-esque action game. The sanity effects were cool, once, but it soon became a game that I didn't want to finish. It just got repetitive. I'll stick to Resident Evil for now.

I never got the Metal Gear craze.

I'm forcing myself to finish the Halo series after not liking 2.

Final Fantasy. I haven't liked a FF game since 7.

Zelda Twilight Princess. I may just hate the motion controls. I want to try it out on the Gamecube before completely writing it off.

Madden games.

Pretty much any WW2 shooter. enough already, give me creative scenarios. COD4, yes, COD5, no.

I have many more.

Zelda: Twilight Princess.

I hadn't played a Zelda game since the original, but it was such a "necessary" Wii game, I figured I'd try it out. Just completely not my bag. I think I got about 5 hours in, and gave it up. I didn't find it fun at all, didn't care about the story, didn't like the controls, didn't like the puzzles, didn't like the whole wolf-transformation thing, and thought that sidekick imp was obnoxious as hell.

Twilight Princess.

I didn't mind the wolf thing but I found it was too dark. Especially when using the wolf senses. Nearly turned it off and stopped playing completely when I had to search for bugs in the blackness.

For me it's The Legend of Zelda: Windwaker.

Words alone can barely describe how much I LOATH that game. (and I'm pretty sure SOMEONE is going to give me flak for this)

Oh, and before anyone says it: No I didn't hate it for the Cell Shading. In fact that was one of the few things I liked about it.

I also don't get the whole 'GTA' thing.

It's a secret to everybody

Agreed on Oblivion. My friends are into it and I tried it, and really tried to get into it but I just couldn't. Maybe I didn't spend enough time with it or something but I just didn't click with it.

i never understood why everyone liked resident evil 4 ... i mean, it was ok.. but.. after reading/seeing all that praise, i expected a lot more..

same with the morrowind/oblivion series, its just too open. and the characters are hideous.

Compared to Wind Waker, Twilight Princess was a disappointment. I didn't pay $44.99 (Used, I might add) for a GC version of Ocarina of Time with no time-changing element or Ocarina. And Navi's annoyingness is preferable to the fact that Midna is a total bitch.

I absolutely hate water levels, especially 3d ones. So the whole game was just one huge turn off to me.

I have never really enjoyed a megaman game.
Does anyone see City-Swimmer? Is he gliding beneath the silver water? Is he creeping 'round a corner, hugging a wall, silent as a shadow in the dark?
