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.

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

@  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)

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

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

@  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)

Well, it finally hit me. I got bored last night and thought "Lets see what new demos are out" and I hit the button on my controller and after a second I said in german "WHAT IS TAKING SO LONG!?!?!?" because it wasn't turning on.. and lo and behold, the 3 red lights.

So I did some basic trouble shooting, made sure the cables were connected, took the HDD out and made sure the power supply light was still turning on... but I knew what had happened.

Luckily, the phone call to MS was pretty painless so I went ahead and registered it. I asked if it was still under warranty since it was a Gamestop refurbished and she said it would be, but I might have to transfer the serial number to my name.. but the previous owner had no registered it.

I heard they used to send a box, now they just email a shipping label.

So hopefully in 2-3 weeks I'll have my 360 back, either way.

Man that sucks Kal but at least they are still gonna fix it for you. I'd be hard pressed to see if mines still good. The original owner bought it during our last tour in Iraq, so I'm surprised there is no sand in the works. Considering it's a 1st gen 360 pro and the only times the Red ring has shown has been when I've goofed the connections. Still it loves to freeze in the middle of Kotor on me, and froze on my bro yesterday while playing Lego Indy. Maybe my consoles a Lucasarts hater.

So what percentage of these bad-boys has a general hardware failure and needs to be replaced? It seems like that would be bad for business.

Nothing ever official was stated, but some of the vendors are saying its because Microsoft went cheap on some of the hardware and pretty much all of them prior to the new hardware that came out last year WILL get RRoD. It's a design flaw and it's only a matter of time.

Last I 'heard' its 30% of the first gen models.

I have a pretty good idea of what's happening and why, and if mine wasn't under warranty I could probably fix it myself with a multi-meter and a soldernig iron.

After working at Gamestation for a year and watching my friends 360's die one by one, I'll have to be honest and say it's probably a lot more than 30%

Either that or the UK got quite a few dodgy ones icon-hotrod.gif

I know of only 2 people off the top of my head that haven't had RRoD and one of them works for Microsoft, so he has plenty of consoles to use that he probably doesn't wear his launch unit out. Everyone else I know that has a 360 has had RRoD at least once.

On the other side of the spectrum, I only know 1 person who has had a RRoD, and his was a launch unit that came directly from Microsoft before launch.

What's more interesting is our dev kits are on almost 24 / 7 and they don't RRoD. I'll have to check up on that.

From what some guy who is about 20 levels higher on the nerd chain has told me it has something to do with Vapor soldering.
That type of soldering wears out and allows everything to heat up and burn out. Or something like that i was trying to fix his tv and he went off on a rant.

It's was sent back unfixed accidentally due to drunk post-office workers, so I sent it back again, but it's been fine since...


To be honest these days I talk to my 360 alot...I dunno, I just try not to make it feel like I'm neglecting it?
