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.

@  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.

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.

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?
