I'll wait for the sequel series Dragon Whole.

@  Maruten : (23 May 2017 - 04:26 AM)

Can't believe the Dragon Half manga is finally being translated this year.

@  Bass X0 : (23 May 2017 - 03:22 AM)

DRAGON HALF!

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2017 - 09:00 PM)

Xellos...? *looks at avatar pic* speaking of old anime... DRAGON SLAVE!!!

@  Xellos : (22 May 2017 - 08:56 PM)

Yeah, Tylor is awesome. One of the few series (Tylor and Escaflowne) I watched multiple times subtitled. On VHS even. Own two sets of each on DVD (or BD in 2nd Escaflowne's case). Original Tylor DVD and the remastered DVD, and both sets of dubs for Escaflowne (not counting the aborted Saturday morning edit, though I did tape that as it aired).

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 May 2017 - 08:28 PM)

Man, I'm so sad I missed so much of the mid-90s anime. The Irresponsible Captain Tylor is SO MUCH FUN!

@  Paladin : (22 May 2017 - 11:43 AM)

where's GALVATRON in MP form dammit?! he didn't even get in for the anniversary year...

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 May 2017 - 11:35 AM)

I'm still waiting on the rest of the Dinobots.

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:24 AM)

The Decepticon MP cassettes are probably my favorite MP figures so far. Fantastic little dudes.

@  Bass X0 : (22 May 2017 - 11:23 AM)

I want a Masterpiece Blaster if only because I'm fond of the Masterpiece cassettes and want Takara to make more. They should also do Slugfest and Overkill since they were in the cartoon too, even if it was only very briefly.

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:21 AM)

I just want the Chip figure. The only Autobot cars I have or want are G2 Sideswipe and Hot Rod.

@  Paladin : (22 May 2017 - 11:14 AM)

another Autobot car. "yaaaaaay."

@  Benbot : (22 May 2017 - 11:02 AM)

I haven't been this excited about a new MP since the Datsuns! He looks amazing

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:01 AM)

I love the little human figures with the MP line. Is it just young Spike, Future Spike, and Daniel so far?

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:00 AM)

And it comes with Chip Chase! I will order just for that! Holy crap!

@  Paladin : (22 May 2017 - 08:37 AM)

anyone remember "Chex Quest?"

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 07:13 AM)

I never played those. I had, like, two-color bootleg files of Donkey Kong and stuff like that with 50 games on a disk.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2017 - 07:11 AM)

not pure text games, but you still had to use text input to do stuff. "PICK UP flask", etc

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2017 - 07:05 AM)

I think those were the old King's Quest/Space Quest ones

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 07:02 AM)

I remember floppy disk games! Never gamed enough to own one that was more than a disk, though.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2017 - 07:01 AM)

I remember booting things from DOS, and games that were like 10 floppy disks big.

Oh man, the days of Realplayer and AIM and man, I can't believe how long ago that was.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 May 2017 - 01:00 AM)

ugh, RealMedia was pretty awful. RealPlayer was so bloated and buggy, I tried to avoid it

@  siccoyote : (22 May 2017 - 12:17 AM)

I remember downloading Realmedia episodes of Beast Wars Season 3, days after they were shown in Americ, but the quality was terrible and the guy who did it wasted half of a stereo audio track because he recorded it in mono. Took many hours to download

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 May 2017 - 09:55 PM)

Yeah, I remember those days. I had a bunch of Quicktime clips from Beasties/Beast Wars and Reboot, most of which I had to leave the computer on overnight to get, lol

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 May 2017 - 09:49 PM)

I remember when it took 3 hours to download a 240p, 2.5 minute movie trailer

@  MEDdMI : (21 May 2017 - 09:02 PM)

and there weren't any rocks yet, they were all space dust

@  MEDdMI : (21 May 2017 - 09:02 PM)

I remember when there was no internet

@  Telly : (21 May 2017 - 08:55 PM)

dont remember what it was called, but i had an internet answering machine software back in the day. turn it on when i was online and i wouldnt miss a call. would leave it off if i didnt want to be bothered though lol

@  Noideaforaname : (21 May 2017 - 08:46 PM)

Holy jeez, Guile's theme does go with anything.

@  Nevermore : (20 May 2017 - 04:34 AM)

The "humans as processors" bit was also used in season 2 of Dollhouse.

@  Pennpenn : (20 May 2017 - 04:27 AM)

I just remembered, I wonder if the scene in Thor 2 with the kids showing the abandoned building with glitchy reality was inspired by the Animatrix short that had the same concept (but could handle it more interestingly)

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 May 2017 - 03:59 AM)

That is nonsense. Also, some men in black suits and sunglasses will be arriving at your doorstep shortly. Please cooperate and it will go much easier for you.

@  Whirl Maximus : (20 May 2017 - 03:42 AM)

It's not bull, the elite are using the 90% through wifi for their Androcide agenda. Learn the undisprovable truth.

@  TheMightyMol... : (20 May 2017 - 03:26 AM)

I think there was an early draft where the machines were using humans as processors with the whole "only use 10% of their brains" bull.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (19 May 2017 - 11:35 PM)

Wasn't there an early draft where they weren't using humans for that?

@  Pennpenn : (19 May 2017 - 10:26 PM)

Yeah, makes the Matrix seem more like a nature reserve than a source of power, and I get the feeling the whole "humans as a source of power" was done pretty much to justify the machines keeping humans around at all without making the machines seem sympathetic.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2017 - 10:23 PM)

But after watching The Second Renaissance, I honestly wouldn't be surprised if the machines still felt some lingering moral imperative to allow the human survivors of the war some kind of life rather than committing genocide. They did everything in their power to avoid the war in the first place

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2017 - 10:21 PM)

It seems like reverting to solar power would be infinitely preferable to having to maintain The Matrix and everyone hooked into it, and all the associated hardware

Discord at first seemed genuinely sad to see Twilight disheartened, to me it seemed he quite enjoyed using her as a 'sparring partner' in his game.

Yeah, I was totally expecting things to go that way; Discord starting to repent or something.

That was kinda... rushed. I finished watching it but it felt like it wasn't supposed to be over or something.

Other than that, still 1000 times funnier than Season 1 start and thus, atleast for me, a much better Season start overall.

Discord is SO RANDOM. Filling up a glass from the top down, drinking the glass instead of what's in it, and tossing it away with an Aqua Teen Hunger Force style explosion. And that's just in one shot. Did anyone catch who that fuchsia pony was that was going "Bliblibliblibliblibli" in the pan across Chaos-Ponyville?

Yeah I agree that this probably should have been a three parter, as it feels like 10 pounds of plot in a five pound bag. Discord's defeat felt really weak as we go from Twilight holding the idiot ball so she'd lose her colors, or Discord holding it so he'd be defeated. Everything betweeen those two were great and I did love the use of the letters, which really gave the lessons real purpose.

Also, nice useage of the "Rainbow Crash" nickname, by Fluttershy, of all ponies! (And on Spike, no less!) "Come on Spike, you are Rainbow Dash now!" icon-fire.gif Twilight, ever the control freak.

It were little touches like that that made the episode. The cloud over Twilight, too~

When Twilight had to carry Tom into the house, I was wondering 'Will they ignore that it's bigger than the door or not?'... Well, they didn't ^^

Yeah, the resemblance between them seemed to grow the more changes he made. Too bad Warner Bros. doesn't own My Little Pony, or they could've just banished him there instead of turning him back into stone, lol.

QUOTE(Rezo @ Sep 24 2011, 10:04 AM) <{POST_SNAPBACK}>
[*] Needed to be a three-parter. Both episodes seemed a little rushed


Yep, it really could've benefited a lot from being 3 parts. Maybe if these two eps had been left as the S1 finale, with a cliffhanger that was resolved in the S2 premiere. The comedy was great, as usual (I think my favourite bits were Fluttershy while she was being nasty), but the actual rise/defeat of Discord plot seemed very rushed. Twilight's restoration was well-done, but the others were cured a bit too quickly and without fuss. And Discord's actual defeat seems like it was just thrown in there at the end to wrap everything up. However, it's not like he doesn't know what the Elements are capable of (and he knew his spells over the mane 6 had been broken)... given the way he just sat there and told them to go ahead, it's almost as if he wanted to be re-petrified, or at least accepted it as necessary.

I almost wonder if he's come to understand moderation after all, and recognizes going back into the statue (whatever it's like in there; maybe he has some kind of "world" to himself), with the occassional break-out every once in a while for a bit of fun, as an acceptable compromise with a more ordered Universe. To me, anyway, this sounds like a better explanation than "well, we just needed to end the episode and banged it out in 2 minutes".

But hey, while the true God of Chaos is away, we'll always have our minor Spirit of Chaos to keep the candle burning...
