Answer: It doesn't matter because even if there was one, it was never relevant in S1 and it got blown up with his original body

Most people think Transformers canon is a series of discrete parallel lines, really it's more like a big ball of canony-wanony... stuff.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 June 2019 - 06:31 PM)

Hate to say this, but the simple answer is that you are thinking too hard and realistically, it does not matter.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 June 2019 - 04:57 PM)

Don't tell me what to do.

@  Paladin : (24 June 2019 - 04:16 PM)

don't cross the streams.

@  tffan01 : (24 June 2019 - 03:03 PM)

Or is this what AVP meant when he said that condradictory streams formed the JG1 timeline?

@  tffan01 : (24 June 2019 - 02:25 PM)

I don't like that idea.

@  tffan01 : (24 June 2019 - 02:24 PM)

In Ask Vector Prime, it was mentioned that in the Beast Wars 2 universe, Convoys all have Energon Matrices and that when Optimus Primal from the Japanese Beast Wars stream was transported to the Beast Wars 2 stream, his history was subtly altered that he too possessed an Energon Matrix. What does this mean? That Beast Wars 2 is actually not canon to the Japanese Beast Wars?

@  MEDdMI : (24 June 2019 - 08:54 AM)

yeah, I've got a few others that I need to check out/get removed. The nose one is small but annoying since I hit it every time I blow my nose.

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2019 - 08:46 AM)

Try to get a histopath examination if it isn't too expensive over there. It's probably just a mole but I'd think certainty would be better.

@  MEDdMI : (24 June 2019 - 07:59 AM)

@unluckiness I know, plan to get it removed but gotta get an appt first

So who wants to hear about this mole on my nose that I keep scratching open

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 June 2019 - 09:24 PM)

Yeah, it's kind of defeating the purpose of making political discussions more restricted if you're just gonna go at it elsewhere on this site.

This time, it was a landslide victory for the opposition's candidate.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:23 PM)

After president Erdogan had a court revoke the results of the mayoral election of Istanbul after the opposition party's candidate had won by a small margin, the election was repeated today.

So finally completed a long outstanding FFX milestone for me last night. I finally dodged 200 lightning bolts.

 

I remember trying to do this back on the PS2 and just gave up. This time I did it and it only took me about 30 minutes. All in all not that bad considering.

 

Now to go redo the horrible Butterfly one for Kimahri. - Completed!

 

So I'll I've got to do now is beat up on some Aeon's for Yuna... Then time to power level for Dark Aeons.... ugh....

When I looked up how to power up the ultimate weapons, I just went "hug that" for most of them. In fact, I'd have to check again to see if I did any of them. I sure didn't do that 200 lightning bolts one. That's just madness! I don't know whether to congratulate you or ask what the hell is wrong with you.

Given some of the stuff that's happening lately, I'm honestly surprised this topic's dropped to the second page. So here's a bump with some discussion points.

Final Fantasy IX port to PS4

Okay, I'm not quite sure when this happened. But I got this near the beginning of this month. 9 and 7 are still among the very top of my favorite FF games. So having both of them on the PS4 with cleaned up graphics and some cheats that basically might as well be a story mode, it was fun revisiting these.

Final Fantasy VI (or III depending on where you live) on the SNES Classic

So...my history with this. I hate Tower Defense games. Hate hate hate them. I tolerated it with Final Fantasy VII because it gave me the Phoenix summon and I had plenty of time to go back out and power level to just beat the snot out of it. But the Moogle defense game in this one...it was the brick wall that made me shelf it my first play through and I just haven't been able to touch it since.

But now that it's a part of the SNES classic, and Terra's theme is still awesome, I want to try to give this one another chance. So I started another game. I'll just have to be sure and power level as much as possible before I get there. Because unlike FF VII, I don't think you can go back and grind once you get there.

I want sooooooo much to like this game. The characters look really cool and I really want to get to the opera scene. I just reeeeeeally hate Tower Defense games. So I hope I can muscle my way through it this time and get 'er done.

Final Fantasy Dissidia NT coming out on PS4

I liked both of the previous Dissidia games. But...there's a problem with them. They're on the PSP. And where's my PSP? in a drawer collecting dust. Well, usually it's in a drawer collecting dust. Right now it's on the charger so I can break out the Dissidia again...but you get my point. It's a dead system and I can't even be bothered to keep it charged for those few and far between days where I actually want to bring it out.

So I'm really looking forward to this new Dissidia coming out. At first I was trying not to get hyped for it because I didn't want to shell out for another Dissidia game. But...well...I shelled out for it. It's already pre-ordered and paid off so all I have to do is go in and pick it up on release day.

So now I'm allowing myself to get hyped. I don't know who I'll main. Final Fantasy XV has endeared itself to me quite a bit for lots of reasons. It helped me maintain my sanity through a whole kidney stone ordeal. It reconnected me to a friend I'd been sadly drifting away from. Oh...and it's a kick ass game.

So...Noctis, Cloud and Zidane are all three pretty powerful contenders for who I might main. And if I can fully get into FF VI like I hope I can, I may have to give Terra a go at it.

While I haven't gotten into FF in a long while it's always cool to see some crossovers. Though one would think they would be more suited to a new Soulcalibur than Tekken. But than again when is the next Soulcalibur even due to be announced? :(

No offense to Tekke players. I'm sure it's a great game. I just could never get into it. I much rather have seen a Sou Calibur crossover.

For one thing, Soul Calibur with PS4 graphics? Woot!

Agreed. It is strange to put a magic swordfighter in a game that is 99% hand-to-hand combat.

 

Having Noctis would’ve been a great announcement hook for a Soul Calibur VI. Ah well.

 

By the way, is it true that Square Enix are allegedly planning a second Season Pass to add rbrn more Story content to FFXV?

If so, I'm game for it. I'm eagerly awaiting Episode Ignis to drop and would love even more content for FFXV. In fact, new content or not, I'm thinking I may want to make my way back to FFXV some time soon.

I just beat the adamantoise in XV. Holy crap! I just beat the adamantoise in XV. I was fairly underleveled too. Noctis Lvl 90, Gladio Lvl 92, Ignis Lvl 92, Prompto Lvl 90…I hugging did it. The thing is, it wasn't even terribly difficult. 3 potions, couple elixers. It was just a moment of attrition...taking down its massive HP. I mean, it was a heck of a damage sponge. I new it was going to be a long fight when I summoned Titan and the adamantoise shrugged him off.

But I did it! This also makes my first platinum trophy.

I'm still all jittery. Way past bed time but I don't know if I can sleep!

Wow! Just...wow!

Congrats on the victory Caldwin. I look forward to getting their eventually myself. Sometime. In the fiture.

I need to get back into FFXV. :)

Oh yeah, the Magitek armour they finally let you have. Honestly, as “Power Rangery” as they were. I uch preferred the original, far sleeker power armour designs for them.

Also, was Episode Ignis worth the wait?

I only just started Episode Ignis last night. I'm kinda taking it slowly...mostly because I have a crap ton of stuff I'm doing. But so far it's pretty good. I like his control scheme. And so far the story's been good. But I only just started the second chapter. So far so good.

And yeah, I wasn't even expecting to beat the adamantiose. I just wanted something to go up against to where I could give the new feature of switching characters a try. And then after a while I realized I was actually whittling him down and it was like...holy crap! I could actually do this! And...yeah...it took a while, but I actually did it!

So, yeah, it was a heckuva night!

I just got Dissidia NT at a 9:00 release. It's probably going to take a while to figure out some of the mechanics. Changing it from a 1 on 1 fighter to a 3 on 3 actually does change a lot. There's a lot to keep track of and I'm getting used to the controls.

I'm also not sure how to unlock things. I mean, I only played two matches, so it's not like I expected to have a ton of gil or anything. But I thought maybe at least something to show that I actually did play a couple matches.

I dunno. It's times like this I really miss the days when games came with manuals.

I just got it.

I think it's perfectly fine *though why so many games going to this format is boggling to me*. But is it just me or the actual HP attacks -very- slow to use? And the lock on system seems to need help.

Unlike the first two, this Dissidia started out as an arcade machine, and IIRC it's developed by a different studio?

Oh, don't get me wrong, I'm sure once I get used to it it'll be perfectly fine. Just that here at first they give you a brief tutorial before dropping you in the deep end. Plus three on three takes a completely different mindset and way of taking in the battle field. Also had a bit of camera screw. Also used to playing Stret Fighter.

I didn't really notice how fast or slow HP attacks were. But again, I was mostly just trying to get a grip on things in general. Maybe see if a different character works better for you?

Okay, so it appears that in order to earn gil, story credit, experience, etc. on offline mode, you have to play Gauntlet Mode instead of Sparring Match. Good to know. This is what I meant when I said I miss the days when games had manuals. If all I ever did was play Sparring Match, I never would've earned anything and wondered what the hell was going on.

It also looks like it's going to take quite a bit of gil to get anything of worth.

Overall, it's fun. I noticed why I was getting the camera screw I mentioned before. It only seems to happen when a summon is on the field and it becomes your target...at which point you can't see your character on the screen.

It's fun, but I think a simple manual would've been nice to help tell some of these things.

I just finished story mode on Dissidia. And looking at my previous posts, I see the posts of someone trying to justify a purchase he regretted. I mean, story mode was about as decent as the other Dissidia's, I suppose. Personally it was easier to follow for me, though I have heard other people say the exact opposite.

But there were just too many things that killed it for me.

1. Now I understand this was a port of the arcade above all else. And I understand the arcade version was 3X3 fighting. So I don't particularly begrudge 3X3 fighting being in this...or even the main focus. But would it have been so hard to just cobble together some 1X1 action?

2. A higher level cap would have been nice. Again, I understand they were trying to keep the balance the arcade had. But at the same time, they were also making a game for a home console and trying to bring in the same people who played the PSP games who might never have played the Arcade game. At least, if they were smart, they should have been trying to. Maybe through those people a bone? I mean, sure, if you want to keep the Arcade balance for online play, you can make the level cap for arcade one thing while making the level cap for single play a bit higher.

3. Let us choose our moves. Again, I understand the whole thing of balancing things for online play like they had things balanced in the arcade. But part of any Final Fantasy game, including the previous Dissidia games, has been about leveling up and customizing your characters. I mean, sure, here you can choose your (on the PS4) triangle attacks. But in the old Dissidia games, you could choose all of your attacks. Here it just seems so random and forced upon you.

4. Seriously? No museum mode. Again, all the previous Dissidia games had a museum mode where you could listen to music, read bios of characters and collected summons...just...look at all your stuff. You don't really get that here.

Thing is, most of that stuff I can forgive. I can ignore the level cap and choosing our own moves, so long as the moves we have are decent. But for I'm sorry, 1X1 fighting is a very big thing for me. It just seems like such a radical departure from the previous games that I just couldn't get into. I mean, sure, I understand...port of the arcade...blah blah blah. But I just think they could've tacked on a 1X1 play mode. I can't see why that would've been so difficult just as a tack on. I think something to show they at least remembered there were some PSP players out there who'd never seen the Arcade game and were probably hoping for something more along the line of their cherished PSP memories.

And also the museum. I mean, this just feels very bare-bones for a full-priced release. A story mode, a gauntlet mode and online. The Shop is pretty useless. You get weapons and armor which are purely aesthetic only...no impact at all on fighting. You can buy icons which you get for free with earned treasure chests (and how many icons do you really need past the one you use for your avatar)? And you can buy music to play during matches. But you can only listen to maybe a minute or so in the store. So you can't just sit there and listen on a loop like you could in the old museums. So over all, the shop is pretty useless.

So yeah, I'm kinda going back to Injustice and Street Fighter V now.
