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)

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)

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.

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

@  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)

Gnarly.

@  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)

Of course - even though casual gamers don't buy as many games as proper gamers do, casual gamers out number proper gamers.

Just because you can't win doesn't mean you stop working.

"Disabled people don’t have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isn’t a “special need”. It’s a basic human right. It’s a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

Or are you saying that every single Wii owner on the planet is 100% satisfied with the Wii?

The answer is no so you don't have to bust your brain thinking of something to say.

Wanna squeeze in a few more words in there to feel superior?

I'll clear it up since some people lack reading comprehension skills.

IN MY OPINION, the Wii has nothing to deserve the spot it has, it has done nothing to sell as much as it has.

That better? Shall I put more spaces? Mayhaps spell out the big words?

See Nintendo to me has not found a balance between the markets, they exchanged one group for another and I consider that bad form, people WILL tire off the Wii eventually, people WILL tire of the motion crap, what then?

I would wonder if the market Nintendo gave the middle finger to would come back but I know the answer to that, yes, like the VG cats author said, Nintendo fans are like battered wives, they love their company no matter what.

I deal in marketing and the best balance to keep everyone happy is what I described, keep all your fans happy, discarding one group for another is a huge mistake and will inevitably backfire on Nintendo provided the angered discarded group is big enough.

Arsenal, it doesn't matter if they earned or even how they earned it. They did it. Doesn't matter if people went out and bought the Wii and then sold it two days later, they moved a new unit.

The numbers don't lie. They earned the top spot because they sold the most units. It's just that the numbers don't tell of satisfaction of the consumer base, only of it's size.

By the way, we get it: you don't like the Wii. How about just dodging these threads if all your gonna do be is a downer?

Go Nintendo icon-hotrod.gif They certainly showed Sony and Microsoft how to play the console war game.

Microsoft would have done better if their systems didn't do the whole red ring of death thing, and had to lose all their profit fixing them all.

And Sony, well they just got too ahead of themselves trying to compete when they weren't ready to move to the next system.

Nintendo really put themselves in a great position with the Wii. Now they''ll have the bucks to throw back into the next system and stay ontop where they belong icon-hotrod.gif

iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii


Lol still despite not having too many top aps, they figured not everyone can afford top notch tech, and tweaked what they had with a new twist that was still affordable and new to the general populace. Not just the hardcore gamers. It was a very smart move and in todays current economical crunch someones (not everyone) more liable to buy a $299 console over a $349 or $499 price tag.

Despite the facts of Better graphics, or more killer apps, or longer time on market, the Wii was a smart move. Now I'm not gonna say it's going to last. But Sony and Microsoft need to find a way to reduce prices, find a wider appeal, or just risk something new other than prettier visuals to draw people in. It worked for Nintendo and you can't argue with the Numbers.

Well you can but it's not gonna do any good right now. Go ahead and rant anyways. We know you will. But for our sakes please resist. We had enough in the E3 threads.

Microsoft will probably have no problem, they're kinda like the Gamecube of this generation as far as "games over gimmicks", just with larger support. Though I don't really have any intention of getting one, if it were not for the RROD problem, I'd say they could have had this generation in the bag.

Sony's the one that really needs to pull their act together. The PS3 so far is about as big a blunder as the Nintendo 64, but unlike Nintendo, they have no first party support to keep them afloat. As more and more games decide to become duel PS3/360 titles, they could steadily lose any advantage they have.

Every publisher and developer underestimated the Wii and were totally unprepared for it's susccess. Surprising given the pattern in the previous generation of consoles that the weaker console comes out on top.
They can't afford to ignore it now.
