@Bass X0 Shockwave did it.

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)

Prowl did nothing wrong.

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.

@  Otaku : (18 September 2020 - 08:19 PM)

The failed Hasbroverse reminds me how so many things could have been spun off from Transformers: Animated and (after that) Transformers: Prime.

@  ▲ndrusi : (18 September 2020 - 12:43 PM)

Requiem of the Wreckers was post-Revolution, but it was also, you know, a single issue.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 September 2020 - 11:06 AM)

But Roche didn't have a series to keep out from the crossovers since Sins of the Wreckers was before Revolution.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 September 2020 - 11:01 AM)

Oh wait, that post said Roche, not Barber.

@  Rycochet : (18 September 2020 - 10:46 AM)

And then seemed surprised nobody particlarly wanted it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (18 September 2020 - 10:25 AM)

Wasn't Barber among the editorial guys that pushed for Hasbroverse?

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 September 2020 - 10:19 AM)

He did it possibly due to 616 Spider-Mans marriage reset between Civil War and Secret Invasion.

@  ▲ndrusi : (18 September 2020 - 09:20 AM)

Bendis kept a tight leash on Ultimate Spider-Man because it was mostly set far away from Earth?

@  -LittleAutob... : (18 September 2020 - 08:49 AM)

I'm learning so much-

@  Maruten : (18 September 2020 - 04:21 AM)

At its worst it was better than MASK, sure.

@  Maximus Ambus : (18 September 2020 - 02:15 AM)

At it's worst it still stomped all over the failed Hasbroverse. Roberts and Roche kept their respective series well out of that one for the same reasons Bendis kept a tight leash on Ultimate Spider-Man when Loeb and Miller wanted greater control for Ultimatum.

@  Maruten : (17 September 2020 - 06:37 PM)

That's so accurate it's physically painful.


Has anyone played Dynasty Warriors Gundam?

I'm itching to get a new game, and Dynasty Warriors Gundam is really catching my eye. Unfortunately, none of the Blockbusters around here have it in stock, and any of the local used game stores have it for $50. Used. While I do have the demo on my Xbox, it isn't enough to justify slapping 50 big ones down. All the reviews I have read online say it's decent, but to stear clear if you're not a Gundam fan. Well, I am a Gundam fan, but with money in short supply, is this game worth the $50?

Dynasty Warriors Gundam is a fun game, but probably not worth splashing out $50 on.

Gameplay is pretty solid, but repetitive and even though you can upgrade Gundams with parts found throughout the game at times it doesn't feel like your doing much to change your Mech. You also have an annoying inconsistency with each Gundams attacks (Is very jarring moving from a traditional Gundam to a G Gundam for example) and this can make you ignore or not want to play as certain characters. However, the in game models are fantastic and each Gundam looks just right. Its also quite satisfying smashing your way through large crowds of enemey Mobile Suits, which there are loads of.

If you see it cheaper later on down the road, pick it up as a Gundam fan, but right now it may be worth looking for something with a bit more depth for that price.

I've got it, and I have played through a little over half of the game, and it really is a blast. I 'd pay $50 for, and I'm just a G Gundam fan, so I guess it is up to you on how bad you want it.

It's Dynasty Warriors through and through. Don't mistake it. If you don't like Dynasty Warriors, don't get it.

I love DW, so I loved it.

Funny you should mention this game, because I bought it for $41 shipped 2 weeks ago on Ebay and have been playing it a ton since then. Overall, it's a good game, but with some serious flaws.

First, the gameplay is fun. I like that part of it a lot. I've never played a DW game before, but it was very easy to get into, and it was fun leveling up characters to get them new special moves.

There are two modes: Official Mode and Original Mode. Official Mode lets you play through events from the anime series (Gundam, Zeta, Double Zeta). You get to play as Amuro, Judau, Scirroco, etc. It's a ton of fun to see the events from the anime unfold. You even get to kill Lalah! icon-waspy.gif

On the other hand, original Mode is just a jumble of battles with no coherent plot. Besides the lack of plot, Original Mode is incredibly repetitive. You play through the same levels over and over. There are different enemies and allies (sometimes), and different dialogue (sometimes), but it gets boring.

So, basically Official Mode is awesome and Original Mode is medicore. Now, the mediocreness of Original Mode wouldn't be a problem if there were enough Official Mode levels to compensate, but there aren't. Official Mode has only 6 playable characters with about 4 levels each. On the other hand, Original mode has about 15 playable characters with about 5 levels each. So basically the game is only about 25% Official Mode and 75% Original Mode. (This is the case despite the cover art and intro movie depicting Original Mode...)

In summary, when you play through Official Mode, you'll probably really enjoy it. As you play through Original Mode, you'll probably start getting bored. If they made a DW Gundam that was just 100 levels of official mode, I would probably give it a glowing review. But it's mostly Original Mode, unfortunately.

One thing I thought was notable about this game is that it's the closest thing ZZ is going to get to an English dub :-P That was kind of neat.

Also, it's fun to get the Musha Gundam (after beating the six protagonists' original modes) and kick everones' asses really fast with it in levels that are normally difficult or time-consuming.

Ehh.. The thing I hated most about the game was Official mode.

I can't stand how whiney most of the UC pilots are.

I didn't like Official mode because despite how you played it ends the same way and a lot of the battles were the same just from different perspectives.

I'm a big Dynasty Warriors fan, but I can't justify paying more than 30 dollars for this game. I'll pick it up when it gets to that eventual point.
