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)

AND THEN KNOCKOUT WAS IN THE WALL AGAIN XDDD

@  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)

@  Telly : (21 September 2020 - 06:35 PM)

i dont think theyre due for release until november. at least thats when target says ill get trailbreaker and sunstreaker. thought the wiki says theyre out in singapore

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 September 2020 - 06:01 PM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 September 2020 - 04:40 PM)

Hey, new to the boards

@  RichardT1977 : (20 September 2020 - 02:29 PM)

I had an idea for a Spiral Zone/Go-Busters crossover fanfic...

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 06:35 PM)

I loved what was there, and think it's pretty ripe for "renegades" style reboot.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 03:13 PM)

It's a shame as I loved Spiral Zone, and the design from the Japanese Toyline of the same name are fantastic, I adore the monowheel motorbike.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 03:12 PM)

Hasbro doesn't seem to have any interest in doing anything with the TV show, haven't greenlit any attempt to rerelease it, and there have been approaches, so I think it may be aother one of Tonka's legal carcrashes where everyone involved owns a piece and it's not really worth anyone sticking their neck out to claim ownership.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 01:47 PM)

I feel that homages and references would be a fun way to expand the GI Joe brand, and give a little love to lines that are unlikely to be acknowledged beyond such capacity.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 01:47 PM)

I was under the impression that Bandai was more the character design aspects, not story or characters.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 12:55 PM)

Also isn't it in rights limbo, given how it's loosely based on concepts from a BanDai series much like GoBots?

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 12:52 PM)

We don't need a Spiral Zone reboot, in a decade or so we'll be living it.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 12:49 PM)

Yeah, but it would fundamentally change the base premise of both gijoe and spiral zone. It's either not the world spanning threat it was, or the zone riders are backed up by a competent force. Either way, you compromise the context of both.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:19 PM)

Akin to what was done with Matt Tracker in 2008.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:18 PM)

Again, not a PURE transplant, but an integration of ideas and concepts into the world of GI Joe.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:18 PM)

@Wonko The Cobra Overlord, with help from Dr. Mindbender and Cesspool, develops machines capable of generating a mind-controlling fog. GI Joe stalwarts Flint, Airtight, Lifeline, and Psyche-Out are joined by Colonal Courage to infiltrate these zones and disable the machines. Figures would sport hostile environment suits (Eco warriors cross with Spiral Zone) and make new versions of the mono-wheel vehicles.

@  Maximus Ambus : (19 September 2020 - 09:39 AM)

Hasbroverse.2 with bought properties: Bravestarr, Ulysses 31, Galaxy Rangers, Shadow Raiders, Manta Force, Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors, Mighty Orbots, Jem and Bigfoot and the Muscle Machines. Seamless.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 08:32 AM)

While acknoledging spiral zone would be pretty boss, I doubt they could actively integrate it into anything else: given the scale of the villains deeds.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 08:03 AM)

COPS, Spiral Zone, Shadow Strikers, Action Man, Centurions, MegaForce. They wouldn’t replicate the old lines, but simply acknowledging their existence would be nifty.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 08:01 AM)

I would love to see GI Joe become something of a “celebration of action figures”. Hasbro has SO MANY old action figure properties, and many could slot into the GI Joe umbrella with relative ease.

@  Otaku : (19 September 2020 - 12:04 AM)

G.I. Joe, CyberCOPS, and M.A.S.K. all seem like something that would work from Animated or Prime, though CyberCOPS might have been a bit trickier from Prime.

@  Sabrblade : (18 September 2020 - 11:02 PM)

Rik Alvarez originally wanted the last episode of Prime to spinoff into a new MASK reboot.

At tonight's E3 2008 Nintendo Developer Roundtable, Shigeru Miyamoto quickly
and casually confirmed that a new Pikmin title is under development. His words?
"We're making Pikmin." The long version of that answer, when asked if the team
was planning on revisiting that particular franchise was far more verbose.

"We continue investigating all types of games," Miyamoto responded. "When it's
time to announce such a title, I'll announce it." Then he did. "We're making Pikmin."

Again, that's "We're making Pikmin."
Yep.

So my glad my Wii was a gift, I would be pissed had I paid money for it. talk about a waste of time, Nintendo's E3 this year was a joke.

Also the new Wii sensor bar does nothing for the old games. LOL.

but, while nintendos press conference was weak, im sure next year will make up for it...and thats ok with me.

Animal Crossing: City Folk does have the same furniture as the Gamecube and DS games, but those are only the defaults. You can buy brand new furniture and clothes in the city.
Design your own clothes.
Move your characters and items from the DS game to the Wii version. Of take your Wii Animal Crossing character, put it on the DS, take it to your friends house to upload it there if you lack connection to WiiConnect.
Downloadable content, brand new stuff instead of just hidden on the disc.

Wii Speak that comes with City Folk (and games like The Condiut and the next Tony Hawk will use) does actualy a rather good job. Sound quality is good and better then a speaker phone. Can pick up multiple voices at the same time for group conversations, no drop out. Nintendo did good on WiiSpeak.


This comes from MCaster of Rangerboard who is currently at the confrence.

Not so much novelty dude, as lack of new stuff. A new Zelda game actually developed for the wii and not a GC port would be immense, same with metroid.

Hell any new stuff would be good, not just resting on your laurels.

Actually im glad they are not doing another metroid game. The series has been over used and is like mainsteam now. Not good.

1UP: With your new focus on user-friendly controls and playability, will this approach play into, for example, future iterations of Mario and Zelda? Will this affect game design in any way?

SM: Frankly, some of the so-called "franchise games" are quite difficult for nongamers to play, so making accessible games for these players is key. With Zelda, we have to consider how to make it accessible for new gamers to pick up and play and enjoy just as hardcore gamers have. For example, we've got the Touch Generations series. Now, we're not necessarily going to make our "franchise" games in that style, but we'll take what we know and have learned -- the philosophy behind those games -- and incorporate it into franchise games. That's a philosophy that's very strong at Nintendo.

You do realize that sales numbers for the Zelda franchise have been
steadily declining in both the US and Japan? They've gotta do some-
thing to change it up...

That mad world trailer does look amazing.
So 2 things, out of like 12 or so I want for other systems, not a good ratio for me honestly.

And how much more can you simplify their main franchises anyway? The only times they got hard is when you tried doing everything, Galaxy is easy if you simply on concentrate on beating the game, TP is almost insulting in how simple it is and Metroid on the easiest difficulty is a joke, that's pretty damn accessible.

Nintendo might as just send a box of jive to long time supporters cause that's what they're doing, they took the group that kept them afloat during bad times and just discarded them and of course people still apologize for what they do, CAUSE NINTENDO CAN DO NO WRONG. Its ridiculous.

My fave thing about this is the 1.1 sensor bar, its like a "yea we admit it, the motion control is imprecise, now pay 50 bucks to fix it bitch"

I don't care if it comes with Wii sports, that jive better come with 2 of those things because chances are that enhanced motion control is gonna be put into most of their games thus forcing you to buy the damn add-ons.

Nintendo looks at E3 much differently than they other gaming giants. In its
current incarnation the only thing that E3 is good for, during this time of the
year, is reinforcing their open gaming strategy and introducing products for
the mainstream. It's not the time of year when the most games are sold, and
Nintendo usually holds their own media conferences later on in the year to
really let the press at their closer held secrets.

Was Nintendo's presser the lest interesting for the hardcore gamer? Yeah.
But my wife watched all three keynotes with me and rated them MS, then
Nintendo and then Sony. The 2+ Hour Sony Keynote was boring and had very
little gameplay from upcoming titles. Microsoft really bridged the hardcore-
expanded audience gap and came away looking like Kings.
Yep.
