@  wonko the sane? : (22 September 2018 - 01:53 PM)

So apparently some models of air-conditioner are on trays inside the case, so they can be removed for easy access to the internals. I did not know that two hours ago: and have since cleaned three. It's been a learning kind of day.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 September 2018 - 09:15 AM)

There's probably been a Pokedex-themed 3DS cover.

@  Noideaforaname : (21 September 2018 - 04:34 PM)

I still got that Pikachu Edition Gameboy Color from back in the day. Yellow and Blue and with Pikachu, Jigglypuff and Togepi on the screen.

Quote of the day: I either need bourbon or aspirin, and I'm pretty sure the liquor cabinet is closer than the medicine chest.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 September 2018 - 02:38 PM)

I don't recall any Pokedex themed DS or Game Boy, but plenty of Pokemon-themed ones. My favourite, and the one I've got myself, was the Pokemon Red/Blue themed 3DS with the swappable faceplates that came out around the time the original games were made available via digital download

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 September 2018 - 02:30 PM)

I'm fairly certain Nintendo has done Pokéball red and white, but I don't know about specific Pokédex colors.

@  Paladin : (21 September 2018 - 11:10 AM)

random thought: has Nintendo ever made a 3DS that looks like a Pokedex? because that seems like a GOLDMINE waiting to happen...

@  Nevermore : (21 September 2018 - 03:23 AM)

Wiigii! Titans Return Grotusque for only 60 Euros (actually 70 but I somehow had an eBay gift card for reasons that escape me) with free shipping from within my own country!

@  Whirl Maximus : (21 September 2018 - 03:02 AM)

That was the plan for Predators too with the Super Predators.

@  Waspinator : (21 September 2018 - 01:46 AM)

So, apparently in the new Predator movie, the Predators don't hunt us for honor or the challenge or anything like that, but because they're stealing human DNA to modify themselves. Congrats Hollywood, on making a monster far less cool and scary.

@  Pennpenn : (20 September 2018 - 08:46 AM)

I only started playing it recently so I don't know what it was like before. Actually surprised they haven't finished the story yet. Then again, unless they introduce another world it's pretty much just Maleficent and whatever the Foretellers are playing at left.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 September 2018 - 08:30 AM)

Geeze.. I reloaded up Kingdom Hearts X for the first time in a long time. That game has massivily inflated from when I played it when it first launced in the US.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 09:07 AM)

It's an annoying thing to have happen in any game. I'm hoping they actually finish releasing all the story mode parts before 3 comes out.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 06:24 AM)

Ahh. Hadn't played that in a long time.. Since before the PVP I think.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 04:33 AM)

Kingdom Hearts Union Cross. Specifically the PVP fights.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 04:31 AM)

What game PennPenn

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 03:13 AM)

Man, I love it when you've got limited attempts at something in a game, said game crashes at the end of the thing, so you lose the attempt but don't get any credit.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 08:44 PM)

I know. I'm back to the classic purple for the first time since the comic theme was introduced.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 08:32 PM)

Alright thanks, gonna be weird without the speech bubble boxes but I'll manage.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 07:59 PM)

Nope, ongoing problem for a bunch of us. The mods know, so... just hunker down and wait. In the mean time: changing themes will sort it out for a bit. Only the comic theme is affected.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 05:36 PM)

Is something going on? I'm missing the buttons to go to the newest post and there's no banner for the forum list, it just says "logo" in the corner.

@  Patch : (11 September 2018 - 04:48 PM)

So he also has White Castle-like qualities?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 September 2018 - 02:23 PM)

@  RichardT1977 : (11 September 2018 - 01:22 PM)

Overlord has some castle-like qualities to him

@  wonko the sane? : (11 September 2018 - 12:15 PM)

Fix it, like, found a working power adaptor, or fix it like: there was saudering involved.

@  Lazy Garou : (11 September 2018 - 11:58 AM)

@  Steevy Maximus : (10 September 2018 - 09:27 PM)

QUOTE(Original Post by Galenraff)
As you may remember (or can read about here if you don't), last year we raised $2340 in just under a week to donate to the Hasbro Children's Hospital om an amazing show of community action for a great cause! Well we're going for round 2 as we try and make this an annual event!

With a deadline of February 28, we're setting a goal of raising $5000 for the Hasbro Children's Hospital in order to become a Bronze Sponsor at their annual gala in early March. We're suggesting a $5 minimum donation per person, but of course any amount will be appreciated. And hopefully many of you will be able to either donate more or will be able to pull together some spare change a few times during the month.

Just like last year, I'll collect all the money and take point in donating to HCH. Or, if you don't really care about the fees and just want something quick and convenient, you can use this awesome widget put together by Daytonus!



Yes, this is a big goal, but this is also a community that has proven it can rise to great challenges for good causes, and after we shattered 3 consecutive goals last time out, I really just wasn't comfortable underestimating you again. Thank you all so much for what I'm sure will be an awesome effort!


QUOTE(Valentine message from Daytonus)


Celebrate Valentine's Day with Cannonball and the Allspark as we give the gift of love and compassion to the patients at Hasbro Children's Hospital. Regardless of whether you're single or spoken-for, the Allspark Staff has come up with some suggestions for making that day even more special!

* Getting flowers for that special someone? Consider buying a smaller bunch, or even a single rose (see some ways to make that not look cheap), and donating the difference to the charity drive.
* Instead of buying something, make something! It'll mean more to the person anyway.
* Single? Show that your heart is bursting with love regardless by giving to the drive!
* Looking? Impress that guy or gal with your generosity. Trust us, philanthropy is sexy.

Tell us what you are doing this Valentine's Day!

I'll figure that out.

Matched my most recent Transformer purchase (thus the weird number). I figure if I've got money to spend on toys, I've got money for charity.

As an aside, if you don't use the widget to donate, the graph won't immediately update, since Galen has to send me the numbers to enter manually. That's totally okay, I just want to be clear so people don't expect the tally to go up as soon as they Paypal their cash.

I'll have to get some money together. Trying to save money to buy my own place, so I might not be able to contribute as generously as I did last time, but we'll see. But given what I spend on toys, if I can't pony up the change, then that's a major moral failing on my part.
