@  TheMightyMol... : (18 January 2021 - 01:01 PM)

Let me know when the WEAPONs wake up.

@  tigerhawk : (18 January 2021 - 05:18 AM)

Or is the wound the Earth healing.

@  unluckiness : (18 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

Healing is just destroying the wound

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 06:08 PM)

But eventually destroys everything.

@  tigerhawk : (17 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Heals many wounds

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 02:03 PM)

Time.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2021 - 07:53 AM)

I dunno, maybe. I'm not clairvoyant either...

Covid?

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 09:50 PM)

At this point, if I'm going to die then it won't be the wait what killed me. It didn't help any, mind you, but it's not what got me.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 January 2021 - 09:37 PM)

Technically we are all literally dying to play with our next figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 05:36 PM)

Still waiting for my box from BBTS to arrive.

@  tigerhawk : (16 January 2021 - 04:29 PM)

Kingdoms is fantabulous and it's only the first wave.

@  tigerhawk : (12 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

My Super Collection Megatron always had two left legs and I just discovered my Thrilling 30 Crosscut has two right hips.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:56 PM)

Fortunately, it's only Netflix Hound, so not really much of a loss here.

More Micromasters would be welcome.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 January 2021 - 06:15 AM)

Instructions unclear, have more sports cars.

@  tigerhawk : (11 January 2021 - 01:57 AM)

Or they could make the other Micromasters of the teams they half assed.

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 January 2021 - 11:20 PM)

There should be a box set of eight Stakeouts.

@  Bass X0 : (10 January 2021 - 08:27 PM)

There should be a box-set of Thrust, Dirge and Ramjet. But I'm not expecting it.

@  Nevermore : (10 January 2021 - 07:51 PM)

I hope there are re-releases this year!

@  tigerhawk : (10 January 2021 - 03:59 PM)

I hope there's rereleases of Earthrise Ramjet, Dirge and Ratchet next year.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

Oh no, he was loved. I'd argue he could have had a better life physically, but he was loved. Deeply.

@  Telly : (08 January 2021 - 01:42 AM)

@  Echowarrior : (07 January 2021 - 11:10 PM)

@  Devcon : (04 January 2021 - 05:17 PM)

Depending on which dub: Either Decepticons or Decepticans.

@  Bass X0 : (04 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Deception is the French word for disappointment. What does that make the Decepticons in France?

That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned, a sun that is the source of all our power

@  Rycochet : (03 January 2021 - 01:30 PM)

Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving and revolving at nine hundred miles an hour.

@  TM2-Megatron : (02 January 2021 - 11:57 PM)

relative to the speed that it's swirling around the centre of the galaxy, its rotation is fairly slow

@  PlutoniumBoss : (02 January 2021 - 09:31 PM)

I'd like to make myself believe that planet Earth turns slowly.

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 January 2021 - 07:21 PM)

The Earth moving gave us 2021.

@  ▲ndrusi : (02 January 2021 - 10:50 AM)

It does that.

@  tigerhawk : (02 January 2021 - 10:11 AM)

I think the Earth is moving.

@  Nevermore : (02 January 2021 - 06:35 AM)

Sunday evenings are awesome. Looking at the clock at 8 PM and thinking "I still have plenty of time before going to bed..."

@  Nevermore : (02 January 2021 - 06:33 AM)

Now I've been working permanent late shift for almost three years. Don't regret it one bit. One of the rare cases where the needs of the company overlap with my own preferences.

@  Nevermore : (02 January 2021 - 06:32 AM)

Before the permanent late shift was introduced three years ago (which I volunteered for as soon as the form became available), I always tended to plan my vacation for early shift weeks. Since the majority of the people in most departments prefer to work early shift and thus tended to plan their vacation for late shift weeks, there were usually enough slots available for me to get my request fulfilled.

@  TM2-Megatron : (01 January 2021 - 05:26 PM)

I was promoted last December, so this past year is my first with the company where I've been able to get whatever vacation I wanted. Instead of competing with 100 other people, there's now only 1 (out of 3 others who share my job) that's been in the building longer than me, and so has first dibs at weeks. It's pretty easy to work it out between ourselves before we give in our requests, though

@  TM2-Megatron : (01 January 2021 - 05:24 PM)

But there's also departments to consider, since we have a varieity of types of machines and not everyone is qualified to run everything. Altogether, there are a lot of ways you can get screwed

@  TM2-Megatron : (01 January 2021 - 05:21 PM)

So a few of the same rules, a few different ones. For regular employees, requests need to be in by January 15th. If they are, those are doled out based on seniority. You're only guaranteed 2 weeks in "prime time" (basically June, July, August). Anything submitted after January 15th is given out first come, first served based on availability

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (01 January 2021 - 02:39 PM)

So who said "Jumanji!"?

I finally got around to watching some Persona 4 and I love it to death. I have a dilemma now, though. I've never gotten further than recruiting Rise. I really like the game, but I keep basically drowning in all the choices (who to date, what stats to focus on, time limited events, etc).
Now I have to decide if I want to spoil myself and watch the anime past where I left off, or if I want to hold back and try to finally finish the game.

Anyway, about that anime. One thing that kept me from watching it for a long while was the protagonist's name. I'd gotten used to naming mine after the manga's Seta Souji, so a new one being introduced kind of irked me. I got over it quick once I started the first episode, though. Even with dialogue he feels really close to the game's version (which is to say: Awesome)
I love that they got the main cast back and kept the music straight from the game, though I don't like the new opening song(s). The original is damn catchy, and the others are just sort of there. Bleh.
The changes to the story and battling are pretty well done. I was expecting to go in picking it apart, but I like what they've done for the sake of pacing and action.

I have a few more episodes before I catch up with the game, then I'll have to decide to either keep going or break out the game and try to go at it without annoying myself to death with a faq again.
And if I decide to play, THEN I'll have to decide if I want to continue where I left off or restart so I can use the anime protag's name. icon-ball.gif

Aw come on! I can't be the ONLY Zero no Tsukaima F fan here!

I loved the first season, loved the second season. I will admit the third season was a bit 'too' silly and fanservicy at times.

However season 4 doesn't have that problem. Two episodes in, and the plot has already gone wild! I can't WAIT to see where this goes.

(Also the fanservice seems similar to how it was in the first season. There really hasn't been that much)

It's a secret to everybody

Despite myself, I'm rehooked on Zero. If they can just continue to keep Louise's flaming hellb thing attitude scarce, then it could be quite enjoyable.

I'm really liking Ano Natsu de Matteru. Yeah, it's horribly similiar in ways to Onegai Teacher, but I loved that series, and this one seems fun as well.

Aquarion EVOL looks to be a great show (at least for what it is) judging from the first three episodes. I loved the first series (I just finished it on DVD yesterday), and this may well be better.

Yeah, I figured the girl would already be having some space pirate adventures by now. Compared to Rinne no Lagrannge or Symphogears, very slow. And there's a ton of characters, but most of them are complete blanks so far, so it's not like they're spending all their time with introducing the herd.

Oh well, hopefully it will build up to something awesome.

It's 26 episodes long and following the novel pretty closely.

I'm glad they're taking their time building up the space stuff though.

Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040
Heroic Age
Rideback
Shangri-La
Heroman
Tiger & Bunny
Vandread
Star Driver (heir apparent to Gurren Lagann)
Full Metal Panic (though be advised: S2 ["Fumoffu"] is a pretty big tonal shift from serialized dramatic action-comedy to straight-up episodic slapstick --though it is possible to jump right from S1 to S3, since nothing changes in S2.)

It's definitely on Hulu, I just watched the first 3 episodes a few days ago.

From what I saw of it I enjoyed it a lot, it's a super hero show where they're sponsored by companies to basically pay for what ever damages they cause, and the main to keep from being forced to retire has to team up with the newest hero.
