My plans:  :hmm  2020:  :)

@  -LittleAutob... : (11 July 2020 - 06:02 PM)

Our plans for 2020 were as amazing as Optimus Prime. But then 2020 came like Hot Rod.

@  -LittleAutob... : (11 July 2020 - 05:50 PM)

Indeed....

Hey you, get moving, it's not too far, you're looking good so come as you are. Hey you, you never know what you'll see, when it's through that door with the 73.

Hey you, get ready, get on your feet. Get into gear and hit the street.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 12:46 PM)

I recall number 73 (old british show) discussing the Transformers movie and had the presenters trying to transform a few figures, one argued his deflated beach ball was a Transformer too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 July 2020 - 08:03 AM)

And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

Trypticon so scared my Primus figure he turned into a ball.

Okay?

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 08:34 AM)

Bazro.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@Trpodeca :( :(

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:32 PM)

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (06 July 2020 - 11:18 AM)

Oof-

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 July 2020 - 01:10 AM)

I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 July 2020 - 10:19 PM)

If I had a sarcasm powered mouth.. ooohh waaaiiittt...

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 05:01 PM)

Heh

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 July 2020 - 02:39 PM)

The real clones were the friends we made along the way.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:47 AM)

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

I'm going through another around of Final Fantasy Tactics, in this case War of the Lions on PSP. And in thinking about it, I've never gotten the Ultima spell. Something about my luck I guess, but I've never been able to get anyone to nuke Ramza so he learns the spell. I think I'll make that one of my primary goals this time through.

But it's kind of funny how they'll always cast it while he's out of range, never targets him, and the battles where you learn the spell tend to be tricky anyway, so maneuvering things so he gets hit can even be a pain in the ass. That, and they use the spell like it's made of solid gold, I.E. almost never, bastards...

Still, I love this game. So easy to burn hours on the sheer character customization options.

I've never played Tactics, but I've lost so many hours on Tactics Advance and Advance II that I actually blew out the game timer on Advance.

It got me through many jivey work days at the Payless DC on my SP.

I played the hell out of FFT:Advance. My first game save hit 140 hours and my second time through was at about 70 or so hours. So, it's odd that despite my love of FFT:Advance, I've never been able to get into the original FFT (or the PSP remake). Every time I try to start playing them I lose interest by the third or fourth cutscene. :/

i *LOVE* FF tactics. one of my favorite games ever. i still have my psx copy. ( its pretty much the only reason i still have a ps2. )

ive never managed to learn the spell either. but i have spent countless hours building my characters up, doing random battles, turning my fighters into tiny gods.

ah.. so much fun.

on the flip side i never really liked the tactics advanced games :/

No way. With all the translation issues and story mistakes the english version includes, it's far from the best. Were it a decent translation, I'd sort of agree, but it isn't.

FF9 all the way. Were the FFT trans. better, it'd be a tie between those two.

I hated FF Tactics on PS. So boring. I've never been into that style of RPG.

Now, I'm enjoying FFXII a lot right now...

Yeah I have XII and have tried hard to like it, but dear god, it's just completely hugging dreary.

I still haven't picked it back up.

IX though, is still the greatest FF of all time. OF ALL TIME.

Tactics was amazing. Once I got Cloud and leveled him up to my normal party levels, everything was gravy. I got Ultima cast on me and learned the spell completely by accident, so can't help there.

Different strokes.

I still hate 8 with an unbridled passion. I find none of the characters interesting. Except for Ward, cause he really didn't talk much.

My guess is by actually having taste, and not liking emo characters that have little to no personality?

That might just be it.

Squall wasn't emo. He was a normal, pragmatic and average guy who didn't like dealing with people. Not to mention character growth. He went from brooding loner to leader. He even gave an inspiring speech. He may internally complain and pick apart people's arguments, but he doesn't hesitate to do the right thing.

Selphie wasn't emo. She was a hyper little dynamo who said ditzy things and occasionally creepy things. She was outwardly outgoing but internally wracked by the pain of losing her loved ones from her home. But she was strong-willed enough to bury it for the good of her teammates. She can also play the electric guitar.

Rinoa wasn't emo. She's fiesty, aggressive, and full of compassion. Her existence pisses Squall off majorly. But opposites attract and they fall in love. She's also badarse enough to drag the brooding Squall out on the dancefloor.

Zell wasn't emo. He's a hilarious bruiser. He loves hot dogs and beating people up. He's got a stupid grin and he's sensitive about his height. His love interest is an unnamed girl in the library in a subtle relationship.

They all have personality, you just couldn't be arsed to look for it?

eh, i didnt like 8 either.

my wife is one of the few people i know that did... i dont know, 7 and 9 had fun, memorable characters. my wife accuses me of only liking them because they were more 'cartoony' then realistic, but.. i dont know, i didnt *like* any of the characters in 8. i played the game at least half way through, twice.. and just never connected with any of them.

i guess i expect a little more 'fantasy' in my final fantasy games. i dont want characters that are just more or less normal people, its the same reason i dont like any of the characters from the newer games.

the next one thats coming out looks terrible to me for this reason, the characters look so bland... but, my wife is excited about it, ill give it a shot..
