8ass X÷ has hijacked this conversation.

@  Bass X0 : (12 June 2021 - 03:37 AM)

Its Bass X0. I named myself after my three favourite Mega Man characters - Bass, X and Zero. I did consider going with Vile Bass X0, but that would have been going too far.

@  repowers : (11 June 2021 - 11:29 PM)

Bass XO has been trying to reach you about your car's extended warranty.

@  Echowarrior : (11 June 2021 - 09:25 PM)

Do not taunt Bass XO.

@  wonko the sane? : (11 June 2021 - 09:02 PM)

Please consult a technician before using Bass XO. Do not operate Bass XO while consuming alcohol.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 June 2021 - 04:48 PM)

Nine out of ten doctors recommend Bass XO. The last doctor is on my list.

@  Dekafox : (11 June 2021 - 01:51 PM)

Bass XO is available at these fine retailers.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (11 June 2021 - 02:01 AM)

Bass XO is not to be confused with Bay Sexo.

@  Fenix Twilight : (10 June 2021 - 08:38 PM)

It's good to be back, after that outage I think I'll try to post more.

Bass XO is backward compatible with the Sega Master System.

Bass XO has 9" long, dagger-like teeth and a 12,000 lb. bite force

@  repowers : (08 June 2021 - 07:26 PM)

Bass XO doesn't feel pain. He can't be reasoned with!

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 June 2021 - 02:57 PM)

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2021 - 09:57 PM)

Had that happen once. Drilled a 1 mmhole in the peg and superglued a rivet into it for something to pull on.

@  tigerhawk : (22 May 2021 - 09:44 PM)

pliers, superglue, heat, nothing has worked so far but I had to take yesterday off due to pfizer side effects.

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2021 - 07:04 AM)

is there enough plastic sticking out to yank it out with pliers?

@  tigerhawk : (21 May 2021 - 01:05 PM)

Oh great my Legends Dai Atlas fell and the gun snapped in two, the handle is stuck in the port on top of the vehicle mode.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:14 AM)

Also, our compound terms are legendary among foreigners, because we throw them together as a single word, with no spaces and usually without hyphens too.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:12 AM)

You can have straightforward sentences that are a literal word-replace translation of stuff like "I go to school", but once you throw in perfect tense and prepositions, you end up with insane constructions where the main verb is at the very end of a very long sentence, so you have to listen to the whole sentence until you have any clue what is going on.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:10 AM)

And I stand by that. German sentence structure can be utterly insane.

@  Nevermore : (21 May 2021 - 04:10 AM)

Fun fact: When I was teaching German kids English, I kept telling them that English grammar and especially sentence structure is more logical than German.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 01:17 AM)

e.g. Lion-Eating Poet in the Stone Den was by a Chinese guy pointing out the weirdness in his own language, rather than the frustrations of somebody learning Chinese as their second. So English isn't the only case where native speakers might enocunter funky issues.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 May 2021 - 01:17 AM)

Then I shall concede, and retire.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 01:14 AM)

I'm not sure if that's even all that unique to English.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 May 2021 - 01:07 AM)

Which is why I specified those comparing learning it to learning other languages as a second language.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 01:04 AM)

And I don't think "ancedotal frustration" means much, considering that every language has complaints from people trying to learn it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 01:03 AM)

The fact that these stand out certainly makes Japanese "not a smoothie". And it's only consistent within more recent loanwords. Older ones stick out in a different way.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 May 2021 - 01:00 AM)

Even writing them generally in katakana is a consistent treatment, and gives someone learning the language a general expected approach. I'd say the anecdotal frustration with English by those learning it compared to learning other languages as a second language is a demonstration that this sort of consistency and organization was not a valued thing in the past few centuries of the language's development.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 12:28 AM)

Frankly, it just sounds like you think other languages seem a certain way because you don't look into them all that much.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 May 2021 - 12:28 AM)

It's pretty pervasive in Japanese as well, with how these feature into everyday speech.. And I don't know what you even mean by "deep", since writing them in a particular character set basically calls attention to not just their derivative nature, but their relative recency as well.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 May 2021 - 12:25 AM)

Indeed, every language has those artifacts if you examine deeply enough, but in English they're not deep, and they're pervasive.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 May 2021 - 11:56 PM)

like Japanese using three different script types together, and more recent word borrowings tend to be in katakana.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 May 2021 - 11:51 PM)

I don't know what you mean by "cohesively". Borrowings are probably obvious if you know what to look for.

- Movie War 2010 has a good segment for W but has the end of Decade which may spoil a few things.
- A to Z/The Gaia Memories of Fate. takes place between episode 45 and 46 from memory. Very good action movie give that a watch
- Movie War Core. Has a good portion for Kamen rider Skull's history but the rest is pure jive.

hmmm that's weird. they normally have a batch after the series ends.

Most of us here used Over-time to get our OOO fix

http://over-ti.me/

it might be harder to get seeds on older episodes but if you go by 4chan /rs/ has most of them if you search right >.>

EDIT: also first post has all the locations to download the various series

And don't forget W Returns: Accel! Just watch it after War Core.

Also W Returns: Eternal if you enjoy the bad guys of A to Z.

No, you're entirely correct. The Skull portion of Movie Wars was absolutely wonderful except for that bit where it's attached to Movie Wars CORE.

TV-Nihon should have download links for their OOO episodes in their forum if there's not a full selection in the torrents. That's usually a more reliable way to get episodes in general once the torrents get a bit old anyway.

When watching Movie War Core, you can freely skip the Kamen Rider OOO segment. The Core segment is optional, as it's not terrible, but also not great. Still, it has the resolution of the Skull segment, so you'll probably wanna watch it.

Really, the Kamen Rider OOO segment is the only offensive part of Movie War Core. And it's really terrible. Luckily, though, it's non-canon for OOO.

This week's Gokaiger was more than good enough to make up for no Fourze. Excellent fights, great use of the leftover keys, and really strong character stuff too. HIGHLIGHT to view:
I assume that Marvellous is dead and comes back partway through the episode... I get the feeling this will work really well, even better than the "Sosuke is dead" episode of Go-Onger.

Some random Gobuster rumors. probably wrong at this stage but meh


the first one is about the leaked prototype picture

1.As always at this time of the year, we have a certain amount of leaked pictures. They are more or less related to the final product.

This is only the first of a long leak period, so it is safe to assume it?s only one of many, many drawings for GhoBusRed.

Another rumor says that a movie will be released in April including GhoBusters, Gokaiger and all Kamen Riders.

The second is about the team and toys

2.After some rumors and early pictures, real informations come out.

According to the toy website Takarajima, the first wave of figures would count seven heroes.

The GhoBusters would work with partners (again). The first six figures would be GhoBusRed, GhoBusBlue, GhoBusYellow and their respective partners.

The seventh figure would be Gavan. A rumor states that Kenji Ohba would retake on his role to become the leader of the GhoBusters. (Not confirmed).

The Changer is still rumored to be an uncommon item called Mission Panneler (no further information). Each Buster would have two main weapons.

Collectible items are also listed (such as Ranger Keys, Engine Souls, Hiden Disks?). The listing mentions four items. Probably one for each Buster plus a common item.

There's a program called JDownloader that allows you to queue up any number of downloads from Megaupload or similar sites and have them download one at a time. It's good for downloading shows like this.

As long as the sites don't use a CAPTCHA layer, cause then you still have to be monitoring it. It is fantastic for Megaupload, though. Even resumes interrupted downloads.

I really did not care for the mecha battle in Gokaiger this week.

HIGHLIGHT to view:
Considering all the cool things they've shown GoKaiOh doing, they could have shown Great Walz's power much better than having GoKaiOh standing around getting hit. Once Machalcon got sent packing, the energy completely left the scene.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."
