Who sings the first part of the GIJoe The Movie theme song? (Cobra) Sounds so familiar.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:46 PM)

Also true.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:40 PM)

I hate brick and mortar stores around here.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:38 PM)

But I like the feel of the brick and mortar search a bit more. And I can see inside packages at brick and mortar. True, Amazon has a good return policy, but I like buying once and settling.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:37 PM)

I suppose I could save more if I bought more often from Amazon.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 10:36 PM)

Closest I got to "free" was 30% off warpath, which just about lined him up to the canadian price had he ever shown up around me. The pile of loot saved me a pile, but it was still pricy.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:34 PM)

Yeah, I purposefully waited on them because I knew they'd be perfect "add onto orders to get free shipping" fodder. Already gotten two that way. Technically "free" and I barely had to wait.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 09:21 PM)

That's how I feel about Prime Masters. Getting back into collecting last year taught me to be patient, which grants rewards most of the time.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:18 PM)

I want Starscream so hard after seeing him in person, but since he's the one being left behind by every other collector in my area, I feel like I can wait for a sale.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:09 PM)

I mean: I maybe woulda jumped on starscream if I found a sale or something, but it wasn't a priority.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:08 PM)

I only wanted the dinobots (cause... volcanicus.) but got saddled with three I didn't want due to the bundling. I'd still be waiting to order if I had waited on individual figures.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 08:27 PM)

Ahh.. I just ordered the whole case cause I wanted too. :)

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 06:49 PM)

Mostly PotP dinobots. Plus some stuff I couldn't opt out of to get those dinobots. And CW warpath... cause he was on sale.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 04:54 PM)

What ya getting?

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 04:38 PM)

Yay! My package from BBTS is in canada! I might even get it this week!

@  Benbot : (17 January 2018 - 02:04 PM)

I need a laptop more than a new desktop

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 01:18 PM)

Buying a pre-built computer you should be okay.. It's just the individual parts that jumped huge in price.

@  Paladin : (17 January 2018 - 01:14 PM)

well all the idiots who invested in "bitcoin" will be selling theirs en masse to make ends meet so you might be able to find something cheap if you watch auctions.

@  Benbot : (17 January 2018 - 12:59 PM)

Is now a good time to buy a computer? Or should I wait?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 12:01 PM)

I pointed out that I'm on disabilty.. I don't have to pretend to be an adult anymore. ;D

@  MEDdMI : (17 January 2018 - 11:25 AM)

Also Bayonetta 3.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 January 2018 - 10:55 AM)

Nintendo also announced Dark Souls for the Switch, so those people should shut up.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:51 AM)

Apparently people are freaking out that Nintendo announced something for kids and kids at heart. And people are absolutely freaking out about it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 January 2018 - 10:23 AM)

...what?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:16 AM)

Why is something for kids and "kids at heart" so bad? :(

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 January 2018 - 09:05 PM)

I vote kidnap Reggie.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 January 2018 - 07:20 PM)

Just post it on the net.. Or maybe kidnapp Reggie and make them do a Nintendo Direct about it. ;)

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2018 - 06:50 PM)

Rent a space and do a webcast?

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 January 2018 - 06:22 PM)

They could just do a panel at RI ComicCon or something.

@  abates : (16 January 2018 - 05:51 PM)

@  Shrug : (16 January 2018 - 01:21 PM)

I love RotF Mixmaster, if that means anything.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 January 2018 - 12:42 PM)

Ehh.. when they get to complicated.. it gets annoying. PotP Optimus is decent. Rodimus pushes it just a little.

@  Locoman : (16 January 2018 - 12:32 PM)

Part of the appeal of Transformers for me has always been the mechanical puzzle angle, so I really enjoyed the ROTF/TF2010 line when that angle hit its zenith.

@  Locoman : (16 January 2018 - 12:31 PM)

I'm probably one of the few people who really enjoys complicated, fiddly transformations.

@  Steevy Maximus : (16 January 2018 - 12:14 PM)

Some were decent, but many suffered from that "collector mentality" where it just LOOKED good in both modes...but the engineering was complex merely for the sake of it.

@  Shrug : (16 January 2018 - 10:30 AM)

Huh. That's dissapointing. I had completely missed the Alternators and had just always assumed they were good based on how they looked in photos.

@  Pennpenn : (16 January 2018 - 03:34 AM)

I liked the Alternator Tracks mold. I think everyone agrees the Grimjack mold was just kinda shit even if you didn't care about it being Grimlock as a car.

@  Steevy Maximus : (15 January 2018 - 09:16 PM)

My local dept. store Shopko always seemed to get a few late run gems, like Blast Attack Optimus Primal and hard to find collection 2 Revenge of the Sith toys.

@  Steevy Maximus : (15 January 2018 - 09:15 PM)

Still wish I had snagged that extra Swerve I saw on clearance at Shopko, though

@  RichardT1977 : (15 January 2018 - 08:50 PM)

Smokescreen was the only Alternator I ever got.

@  Telly : (15 January 2018 - 07:24 PM)

i sold all my alternators last year

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 January 2018 - 05:27 PM)

Hound isn't bad, and, uh........

@  Paladin : (15 January 2018 - 05:23 PM)

there's only like 3 Alternator molds at most that still hold up...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 January 2018 - 01:09 PM)

There were no shelfwarmer Altenators where I lived.. Cause no one ever got them in. x.x;

@  Bass X0 : (15 January 2018 - 12:57 PM)

I have Alternators Nemesis Prime since he was a shelf warmer here.

@  unluckiness : (15 January 2018 - 10:07 AM)

You wouldn't want to anyway

@  Chromedome113 : (15 January 2018 - 07:21 AM)

My first Prime was Alternators Optimus, I still can't transform him

@  Shrug : (14 January 2018 - 06:42 PM)

Ah. I'll try to remember that, but I keep forgetting "Gobots" the Autobot even existed.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 January 2018 - 05:02 PM)

"Gobots" is the G2 Autobot Color Changer.

The intent of this thread is to discuss any games related to MLP, whether they be official or fan-made. The reason I'm starting this now is because I was inspired to do so by Sobana's thread regarding his/her RPG "Maidens of Twilight", and then remembered that I'm still in the process of building a FiM-based level for Knytt Stories.

Anyhow, to anypony who has any experience playing Knytt Stories, this is a sample of my recent work (just ignore the intro--I'm going to fill out the story eventually, but I didn't really feel like doing it yet, so the intro doesn't really make a lot of sense). It has nothing to do with MLP, but I was hoping somepony might be willing to play through it and let me know if the length and difficulty level should be changed for an MLP level. Mostly, I just need a benchmark to use for comparison's sake.

Now, on to other FiM games. Anyone seen anything new or promising recently?

There's an official Pony app for the iPhone/iPod/iPad. It's basically an interactive storybook about Twilight Sparkle.

Twilight Sparkle, Teacher For A Day

Don't expect the level of writing/voice acting from the show. In fact, it seems to just be just one person reading the story who sounds a bit like Twilight but not quite. Imagine a story from the previous series (G3) set in the FiM universe. It's a bit like that. The art ranges from quite good to very poor. The usual vector art they use in the official merchandise make an appearance, good and bad.

Still, it was only 69p (99c) so if you're starved of Pony fun then this may keep you entertained for a bit. Plus if you have a young child who likes the show they'll probably enjoy it more since it is, after all, made for them.

It's kind of a shame Fighting Is Magic is already well underway by now, because if it were just getting started right now, having the premise be that Discord has escaped again and turned all the ponies against each other would be just perfect.

If you ever somehow become a Catholic saint, be aware that they will harvest your bones and build altars around them.

I have started the SuperGroup "Protectors of Ponygon" on the Exalted server for City of Heroes. Pinkemina (Axe/Willpower scrapper) is my character, and Flutterwry (Mental/Pain Corruptor) will be in it as well. Both heroes, more or less. icon-hotrod.gif Shoot me a tell at @dvandom or PM me on the board here if you want to make a pony character and join up.

Just had a little go on the CMC demo and so far it's looking pretty good. The character animations look great and very smooth. The talking sounded a bit weird at first, although I could see what you were going for (reminded me of Banjo Kazooie). The game did crash on me when I accidentally clicked just outside the window (I was Sweetie Belle at the time).

All in all I'm looking forward to playing the full game. I do enjoy a good point & click icon-hotrod.gif

There's a new trailer for Fighting is Magic:



Shows Pinkie, although the trailer is for Twilight.

EDIT: I like how Twi seems to have a "levels of understanding" mechanic by reading her book.

Anyone else watch tonight's Fighting is Magic livestream? It's looking good. They are working on getting it up on YouTube, so consider this the advance warning bump. I wonder how much will be ready by the end of June (which is to say, this summer's BroNYcon?)

I hope that game has like killer instinct combos where you can get up to 100+ hits if done right.

If you watch the videos, they make it quite clear that they aren't going to do that. Which I think is great, because getting infinitely juggled is really no fun for the player on the receiving end. Besides, with the way that successive combo hits get penalized (again, watch the videos) you wouldn't do much more damage anyways.

I'm kinda disappointed in that. High end combos, in my option, are still very impressive. They could make it so after so many hits the combo stops doing damage but allows you to keep going just to see how long you can keep it up like a high score or just a cool visual effect. Like in killer instinct, you couldn't do the same combo over and over again, the opponent would move out of range, requiring you to switch to a different one to keep it up, making any combos past 20 very difficult.

Say, is there an official forum site for this game?

No. There's their website, their Twitter feed, and an unofficial subreddit. They figure a forum would devolve into FAQs and would take them away from actually working on the game, which I think is quite reasonable.

We'll have to agree to disagree on the combos. I think they're smart to keep the game accessible for fighting game n00bs such as myself, while keeping it interesting for people who know what they are doing. Multi-dozen hit combos don't seem out of reach, in any case, particularly with moves like Rarity's level 3 super.

For me, fighting games sparkle the most with flashy and complex fighting styles. Being able to throw your opponent and dance around the screen is something I enjoy seeing. It gets rather boring just spamming the punch button like a rockem' shockem' robot until someone loses. Do you know if they will have any finishing moves?
