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)

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 September 2020 - 05:04 PM)

The wall could use some decorating, though. Maybe a nice shelf or a portrait.

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)

@  wonko the sane? : (23 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

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

What Sony really needs to show us is how they're going to capitalize
on the momentum that they're starting to build on both the PSP and
the PS3... I expect quite a bit of Blu-Ray talk and how great they did
with that... We should see Killzone 2 and God of War 3 in some form
or another.

The biggest thing is that they need to date some of their bigger games
and actually get them into the hands of consumers. We need to know
when HOME, Little Big Planet and other things that will see consoles
are actually going to be able to be played. For too long they've been
talking about how wonderful everything will be and telling us to just
wait for it, now they really need to tell us when everything will be out.
Yep.

I'm not expecting much from Killzone 2. Much like Killzone 1, it's a lot of hype with very little underneath it--Resistance 2 is the real shooter to be watching out for on PS3.

And unless Sony gets Home out the door now--like TODAY now--it's kinda old news, considering the 360 may beat them to the punch.

And then go back in time and erase Halo 3 from existance.

I didn't pay much attention during this, my reaction for Massive Action Game was "Oh, it's a war game." but I don't really know what I expected.


And they announced a Resistance game for the PSP. I don't own a PS3 but from what I've seen I like Resistance the most out of the current FPS out now.

But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

So... uh... I take it you're extremely happy that Sony announced a game they'd already announced via flyer included with the PSP edition of the franchise, and extremely upset that Square made one of their most popular (and expensive-to-make) titles multiplatform so more people could play (and buy) it?

Bad news that slipped through the cracks: Sony is dropping backwards-compatibility on the PS3 altogether. The capacity upgrade from 40 to 80 kills the last backwards-compatible PS3 on shelves.

Too much talk about bluray and movie downloads, but I must say Resistance 2 looks rather impressive, and while it's a shooter, I might just check it out, just for the Kaiju scale bosses. It's always nice to see more LBP footage as well.

I'm kinda pissed I'm going to have to buy a second-hand non-gimped PS3 when I finally take the plunge.

They should've added the emotion chip back in since they cut costs instead of killing it entirely.

What the heck is Sony's problem? Out of all three consoles, the PS3 is the one that would benefit the most from backwards compatibility. The PS2 is still selling ridiculously well, considering how it's already last-gen, and its top titles still beat the pants off of the best of the PS3 library right now.

I've known people who owned a Wii and didn't even realize it was backwards compatible with GameCube. They didn't even care, because it was GameCube. The PS2 is still relevant.


Oh well, being able to download TV and movies onto my PSP is cool. Too bad I'm already happy with just ripping the DVDs I already own....

I think you answered your own question.

It's stupid and short-sighted, but I think they're saying, "hey, we'll just keep selling PS2s, which don't lose money and which we don't have to pay to market."

Which may be true, but it means their flagship PS3 sales suffer, and Blu-Ray gets fewer new adopters as well. It's one less reason for someone to upgrade.

Actually, I have never heard that many people talk about KH3 being a PS3 exclusive. I was under the impression that the title is considered/rumored widely to be a multiplatform release.
