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.

@  Maximus Ambus : (13 January 2020 - 04:50 AM)

News today is all 'there's a CHANCE it would snow in July' and 'dogs COULD bite back'.

@  Benbot : (12 January 2020 - 10:05 PM)

Holy crap, do many people get hurt by them?

@  wonko the sane? : (12 January 2020 - 02:11 PM)

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)

Why?

@  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.

@  wonko the sane? : (09 January 2020 - 03:18 PM)

If that's what it takes to get you to take the medication, sure.

@  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".

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:01 AM)

Because the very combination of those sounds is unknown to them, and thus they avoid it as if it were contagious.

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:00 AM)

For example, the English "J" sound consists of sounds that exist in German: Basically, it's just a "d" sound followed by a very soft "sh". Yet there are many Germans who insist on calling the late King of Pop "Michael Checkson".

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 05:58 AM)

I'm talking about names that should pe easily pronouncable if you just bothered to pay attention to how it's done correctly instead of insisting on "I speak X language and this is how I prounounce it!"

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 05:57 AM)

I'm not even talking about foreign names that have sounds that don't exist in the speaker's language.

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 05:56 AM)

Something that really irks me is when people are persistently ignorant about the correct pronunciation of foreign names, especially when it's people they either admire or frequently interact with on a daily basis.

Good idea.

Bulbapedia lists all these optional rules and all that, most of them kind of unnecessary (though I chose to take the rule banning duplicate captures so I wouldn't end up with a lot of Bidoofs).

Asking about something even Bulbapedia doesn't explain and assuming there's no rules for it is cheating...?

I'm not anywhere CLOSE to the Great Marsh yet!


The Wiki doesn't (though perhaps there should be such an article), but the forums have a rather extensive thread on the subject.

Well lets get some of our own rules going

how about..


- No clones! you can only have 1 of each Pokemon. however catching a type that has already fainted and "died" is ok to replace it after its passed on
- In each new Route, Cave and Building you have 3 chances to catch a Pokemon. this means if a type appears you already have you have an additional 2 chances to get another type. if you fail to get a new poke or fail to catch anything in 3 gos stiff bickies no Pokemon for you!
- only allowed to have a maximum of 10 potions on you at any time eg (10x Potion, or 5x Potion 5 x Super potion, or 10 x Hyper, or 2x Potion 4 x super 4 x hyper. get it?)
- All Pokemon must be nicknamed
- You are allowed to catch Evos. e.g. if you have a Poliwag and a Polywhirl pops up you can catch it.


yeah these are stupid rules but nothing is final icon-waspy.gif

American/Canadian Celebi event date confirmed:

http://www.pokemongo.../#/news/celebi/
http://www.pokemongo.../#/news/celebi/

Feb. 21st through March 6th. No idea how they're going to manage that, considering the fact the distribution cartridge won't give out Celebi unless the system date is between the 27th and the 6th; but meh, I guess that's for Gamestop employees to puzzle over.

I shouldn't of done my nuzlocke on Ruby. I forgot that so many trainers early on in the game use full restores!!! its not like they are all Lance from the E4!!

The Rich Boy and the Lady with the Zigzagoons in the early routes have Full Restores, because they're... rich, I guess.

After my shiny rage I've decided to do a Nuzlocke run on a spare copy of Fire Red. For the safari zone/great marsh, the most lenient suggestion I can make is to count each of the zones within as a separate route which should give you something like 4~5 attempts since the regular rules of catching don't apply within the zone.

Right now I still at Viridian City and my team is:
Halfshell (Squirtle lv10)
Ozma (Mankey lv8)
Rattletrap (Rattata lv7)

Decided not to go the traditional route of naming my Squirtle, Yertle just in case the worst happens

But isn't the point of the game to try and catch one of everything? Aren't we standing on one point and defeating another in the process?

I'm pretty sure that the point of this kind of challenge is to beat all of the gyms and whatnot despite the handicap, not to catch 'em all.

I'm defying the Legendary rule (because hug them, a Legendary counts as a Pokemon and it's not like they're so gamebreaking that having one of the damn things will suddenly make a Nuzlocke run easy).

After all, the only one I'd even run into in my Diamond run is Dialga, unless I actually go search out Giratina and catch nothing else in that cave.

A rule I'm applying on my Nuzlocke run will be to only use items I find or receive in the field; only buying pokeballs of various varieties. Those items that I do find can be used in or out of battle though.

Doofus (Bidoof) Lv 5

Hornesto (lv4 Weedle) just joined the team but his addition comes with a heavy heart. A bastard trainer's Weedle managed to poison both Rattletrap and Ozma in the Viridian woods, and with the single potion I had found I had to choose between life and death for my two partners on who could survive to the pokecenter; I chose Ozma.

Halfshell (Squirtle) lv10
Ozma (Mankey) lv8
Hornesto (Weedle) lv4

RIP
Rattletrap (Rattata) lv4-8

Poor little Plague (Zubat) bought the farm. It was pretty funny to turn around and see what he was up to, too. "Plague is staring intently at you."

Up to Ilex Forest now. Slowly making progress in between doing other stuff.

Scramble (Togepi) lvl 7
Sizzle (Mareep) lvl 14
Therazane (Geodude) lvl 17
Skithiryx (Giratina) lvl 14
Lockjaw (Totodile) lvl 15

RIP
Packrat (Rattata) lvl 4-5
Plague (Zubat) lvl 2-10
