Figures that Walmart finally restocks Studio Voyagers...with Wave ONE

@  ThunderWear : (19 January 2020 - 09:27 AM)

I snagged Rainmakers for half off.  They make me want jolly ranchers.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 04:21 PM)

I was using my account on another comptuer, and oddly it seemed to default to $US rather than converting it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 January 2020 - 02:02 PM)

You should be able to set eBay to display in your local currency, although personally I like to know the actual currency the item is listed in so I know if I need to account for forex fees or not

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:34 AM)

I'd also like to take the opportunity to say I despise Ebay for showing the list prices in US money.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:23 AM)

Well there is an overpriced limited edition, but I don't want to pay that much money for it.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:21 AM)

Well great. The one Usagi Yojimbo volume I don't have and it's out of stock.

@  Rycochet : (17 January 2020 - 06:15 PM)

I both love and hate that the Alien franchise seems to have had more luck finding a niche as a line of children's toys than it has at producing worthwhile films.

@  Donocropolis : (17 January 2020 - 06:35 AM)

I've seen them on the shelves at Walmart. They're pretty great looking retro Aliens toys. https://www.walmart....-Vary/934039489

@  fourteenwings : (17 January 2020 - 01:11 AM)

IIRC somebody on here mentioned an unbranded Alien toy a couple of weeks ago? It seems like it was actually part of a collection for the Alien movie series by Lanard. Mattel's making some stuff too.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 January 2020 - 03:12 PM)

Is it really a worse name than say, HMS Spanker?

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 January 2020 - 02:36 PM)

'Boaty McBoatface' was a actual thing?! Wow.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (14 January 2020 - 02:00 PM)

Might be worth bringing back this thread.

@  ThunderWear : (14 January 2020 - 01:53 PM)

Of course I had the idea to download all the pdfs like a week too late. Anyone got an archive?

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 January 2020 - 12:48 PM)

The Collector Club is dead. Seems like it all came down shortly after New Year

@  ThunderWear : (13 January 2020 - 11:06 PM)

I can't get to the collector club website. anyone else? I was literally going to download all the fiction to finish reading.

Even in fallout, they never carpet bombed with nukes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (12 January 2020 - 12:43 PM)

I hope the stockpiled nuclear weapons of the US and Russia are accounted for then.

@  Nevermore : (12 January 2020 - 12:22 PM)

Geez. 1760 (!) bombs from World War II that had not detonated and were still armed have been found. That's only the numbers for the federal state of Germany I live in, and only for the first three quarters of 2019. For all of 2018, the total number was 2811 (!!) bombs.

@  CVReynolds : (11 January 2020 - 11:05 PM)

I've been wanting a Tarantulas that turns into a more realistic tarantula for a long time. Maybe Takara will someday do a Masterpiece, which would be neat. But I really want to see a modernized look like in the IDW comics.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (11 January 2020 - 09:43 PM)

We need more Waspinators.. and rattraps.

@  Ashley : (11 January 2020 - 07:09 PM)

I'm on board with that

@  Dekafox : (11 January 2020 - 06:17 PM)

What I'm hearing is we need Cyberverse Waspinator

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 January 2020 - 01:27 AM)

He's appeared across more branding changes than Waspinator, so maybe it's more the other way around.

@  Ashley : (10 January 2020 - 12:01 AM)

is C3PO the Waspinator of Star Wars? he'll live forever, because it's funny for him to suffer

@  Sabrblade : (09 January 2020 - 11:52 PM)

He's still waiting for them to be funny.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 January 2020 - 10:35 PM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 04:02 PM)

I've been watching South Park, Family Guy and The Simpsons with a straight face for a decade now.

@  Bass X0 : (09 January 2020 - 01:52 PM)

If I go crazy, will you still call me Superman?

@  fourteenwings : (09 January 2020 - 11:37 AM)

I mean, it is easier to protect HDDs, and you can retransfer the data over and over forever?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 January 2020 - 10:45 AM)

Not in this comparison. He's making his own files, so they're (presumably) not restricted by DRM, so he can copy them as many times as he wants. It's potentially more reliable in the long term than hoping the specific copies you originally bought never accrue any damage for the rest of your life.

@  Echowarrior : (09 January 2020 - 10:44 AM)

I prefer physical copies too. Easier to protect something physical and tangible.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 09:55 AM)

I prefer having physical copies.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 January 2020 - 08:56 AM)

I have plenty of physical media I turn into digital media for my plex server. Just finished ripping Ultra Seven

@  fourteenwings : (09 January 2020 - 08:50 AM)

Isn't the general consensus that we're supposed to be over physical media anyways?

@  Paladin : (09 January 2020 - 08:17 AM)

i still don't own a Blu-Ray player.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 January 2020 - 07:35 AM)

My current TV works just fine. I don't see a need to upgrade. And by the time I do, the Next Big Thing will probably be out anyway.

@  Benbot : (09 January 2020 - 03:58 AM)

Me neither. I'm no rebel, though. I'm just poor.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 03:38 AM)

I haven't gone 4K yet, I'm a rebel.

@  Ashley : (07 January 2020 - 11:50 PM)

the comic theme is amazing

@  Bass X0 : (07 January 2020 - 03:18 PM)

Sounds like Victor Caroli but I’m not sure.

@  Bass X0 : (07 January 2020 - 02:35 PM)

Should I recognise the narrator of the Mutant Hunt trailer?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 January 2020 - 04:30 AM)

I got me Titans Return Blaster, now watch them unveil Earthrise Blaster and Generations Perceptor, a retool of Titans Blaster.

@  ThunderWear : (06 January 2020 - 10:22 PM)

I recently switched to to the comic theme here at the Allspark and I'm so happy I just want to look at it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (06 January 2020 - 08:12 AM)

Can you not take so many lines to say anything?

@  fourteenwings : (06 January 2020 - 07:47 AM)

Iunno, maybe people having unique pronunciations of things re:how they understand language makes the world a more colourful place, rather than one where we correct every seemingly grievous error?

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:12 AM)

Others insist on "Michael Yackson".

I am so hugging disappointed with FF Dissidia it hit all the wrong buttons with me a FF fighting game from Team Ninja should be a no brainier well they completely screwed the pooch.

First the character selection is a mess because when I think of Final Fantasy I think of a flat chested girl with a stick wheres Yuna or Tifa? Quistus?

Second the fighting a mess hampered by controls that make little cense attacks are repetitive and bland

 

I have the PSP games I love them easy to start and play a hell of a lot better selection and the controls aren't a broken mess

 

So disappointed this one goes back

Is it true that FF IX, X/X-2, and XII: The Zodiac Age are getting XB1 releases?

They are definitely coming to Switch and XB1, although not until 2019.

I am very happy to hear this as i too want some classic FF, but do not want to buy a PS4 to play it.

Switch and Xbox One are getting Final Fantasy XII: the Zodiac age.

 

It's a pity nothing came of Final Fantasy V and VI remakes that were considered for 3DS.

So Tabata has "resigned" from Square-Enix (which most likely means they asked for the resignation), all the FFXV DLC after Ardyn has been cancelled, and SE took a $33 million loss due to cancelling it.  Makes me wonder how badly they were coming along if they went that far...

 

https://www.gamespot...mpaign=homepage

 

Still, I have really enjoyed FFXV a lot, and have been looking forward to the new DLC, but, alas, hoefully it means they are now working or are a good deal into FFXVI, at least.

This this dropped last night apparently. Might finally buy a PS4 (or PS5, whatever it comes out on).

I still need to know time table and price point before I get excited. Last time I got excited over a trailer for this thing it was years before hearing anything else and I'm tired of getting hyped over nothing.

I got Final Fantasy XII Zodiac Age for Switch last night. It was a bit of a pill to swallow because I already had it on PS2 and got pretty far on it.

But you know how sometimes you buy a used system and it just feels dirty and gritty and for some reason the hookups work but not quite so you have a system that works, but just isn't much fun to play? That was me and my PS2.

So here I'm hoping that starting over from scratch, I can actually make something of this game. I only got to the first save point last night. Can't wait to get into this thing full force.

My most prominent memory of playing FFXII is the two days it took me to beat the first Demon Wall.

 

Which was an optional boss, a fact I didn't find out until years after playing the game.

 

Also Balthier is great.

Well I don't know how I feel about the more specialized license boards of Zodiac Age vs the every character can do everything boards of the original. But I'm definitely having more fun with this and it much prettier. Portability is always nice. I think it also helps to realize beforehand that Vaan actually isn't the main character. Plus I can always use more Viera in my life. Like, seriously, we either need more non-MMO Ivalice games or make Viera a race outside of Ivalice.

I actually thought XIV would've already had Viera. But then it's not only an MMO, but doesn't it also have a subscription above and beyond the PS+?

I'm afraid I'll have to pass. That's why I specified non-MMO games.

It was a good one. I didn't expect to like the real time combat, but it really was pretty fun.

 

It takes a bit of getting used to, but once you do it tends to be pretty fluid and fun.

 

Also it being more open world, I find myself running on Fallout logic... Sure I COULD take the ship to go to my wedding, but here I am for some reason exploring an abandon mineshaft...

 

EDIT: Okay, that was total bullshit. Sure fill the mine with goblins which are just the right level of annoyance for my party... So of course I think this will be doable... then I come across the boss and get my ass handed to me on a silver platter... Turns out that the boss of this place is goddamn level 50. what the literal hug? If you're gonna have a stupidly strong boss in a dungeon that's not hard to find... then give some warning like enemy enciunters that DON'T lull you into a false sense of security...

Or were on a normal quest and ran into a Hunt mark?
