@MEDdMI - Me and my teacher both had box turtles. The teach did animal rescue work, so two of her turtles were actually deformed and couldn't be released (one's shell was too large and the other's too small), so they ended up being class pets.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (23 May 2017 - 02:12 PM)

They had regular flat, cereal bowl-type molding at the bottom, so it wasn't much an issue that I can recall.

@  OrionPax44 : (23 May 2017 - 02:10 PM)

How tough is it to clean out those bowls. I'd imagine the nooks and crannies from their spines are tough areas.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (23 May 2017 - 01:47 PM)

I had two of those bowls, Michelangelo and Donatello

@  MEDdMI : (23 May 2017 - 01:46 PM)

Nice. What kind of turtles?

@  Noideaforaname : (23 May 2017 - 01:10 PM)

I had that turtle bowl too. Never did the obvious 'pretend to be Shredder and dine on turtle soup'... but that's because I had a bunch of pet turtles plus I frequently pet-sat a teacher's trio.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2017 - 12:36 PM)

You ate out of a Ninja Turtle? Kinky.

@  NightViper : (23 May 2017 - 12:33 PM)

My bowl didn't just have a picture of a Ninja Turtle, it WAS a Ninja Turtle. And came with a box of Cookie Crisp that I didn't eat.

@  Foffy : (23 May 2017 - 12:31 PM)

My favorite dish is this bowl I had as a kid that had a picture of a Ninja Turtle on it.

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!

@  Bass X0 : (22 May 2017 - 10:55 AM)

@  Rycochet : (22 May 2017 - 09:25 AM)

Super Bootspork!

@  Bass X0 : (22 May 2017 - 08:45 AM)

I remember doing the same for my ZX Spectrum.

@  DeltaSeeker : (22 May 2017 - 08:40 AM)

I remember loading games on my Vic20 from an audio tape.

@  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.

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 06:57 AM)

*dies*

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 06:57 AM)

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

the entire conversation at the end of the mission when hunting through the artifacts is a lot more direct when you bring Javik. basically points out how "Athane" and her servants were Protheans uplifting the Asari. Liara gets pissed.

I only ever took Garrus and Javik with me on that one. Garrus pretty much drives at it until its clear that Liara just doesn't want to hear it anymore. Javik i think she actually threatens to kill.

I dunno. I just never could get to liking him really. hes okay. But much like Vega if i never got him in my party i would have not been worse off for it.

Javik is a nice character, but honestly, having a living prothean around just seems.. wrong. Not enough people freaking out. I mean, the hanar is meeting his god and barely even raises his voice. Particle Rifle is nice, though.


The end of galactic civilization is at hand.

"Oh hey look, a Prothean." is small potatoes compared to City Sized Death Machines Falling From The Sky.


Major Kirrahe's reaction helps explain it as much as anything.

Bring Javik to talk to him, he assumes that Shepard had someone gene mod a turian or a drell to be a prothean ghost against the Reapers. Little bit of headgames. He approves.

He's a little more skeptical when Javik says he's an legitimate Prothean.

Also? Javik's got at least 2 planned fates going into endgame. Maybe more. Guessing you told him to check out the shard?

To be fair, in a society with the kind of technology they do, faking a Prothean is pretty plausible.

Eh, fair enough. I suppose nobody really even knows what a prothean looks like at this point either. Might think he's just some weird new species running from the reapers.

Once I get past being rankled by his very existence, he's not so bad. Good sense of biting sarcasm. I didn't tell him to activate the memory shard. Got to live a long, healthy life helping Liara write a probably-wildly-inaccurate book. Poor guy.
Gameplay-wise, I didn't think he was that bad, but honestly I rarely varied my party from Garrus/Liara. Comparing him to Vega, though, Murry? That's just cruel. Nobody is as worthless as Vega.

Honestly, I'd be surprised if the salarians haven't, at one time or other.

They can revive an extinct species of murder-dinosaurs from a single skull and get them mass produced in a matter of months at most.

I'm pretty sure the salarian national anthem is "FOOLS! I'LL SHOW THEM ALL!"

A 1/18th scale ME line would be basically the best thing ever. I'd buy tons.

Strafe, how are the figs? I keep meaning to order them, but.. $17.99 a pop is quite a bit to put down for an out-of-work college student. Especially when I know I can't buy just one.

The sculpts are fantastic. The articulation varies from crappy to totally miserable, worse than most other DC Direct toys.

I love Garrus and Mordin, though. Miranda isn't bad, though you can tell they spent entirely too much time sculpting her ass. So, her face isn't as accurate as it should be. The multiplayer DLC codes they came with didn't contain anything special. Some missiles, medi-gel, a few silver grade weapons.

It sounds like you may not want to sodomize your wallet with the Play Arts Kai Mass Effect toys this fall, for $70 per. These are a suitable alternative, if you're hard up for some great Mass Effect merch and aren't bothered by half-assed articulation.

Yeah, I figured the articulation was sub-par, though I didn't realize how bad it was until seeing your pics. Just the same, they're more likely to be displayable tributes to the characters for me, so the limited articulation shouldn't matter too much. Miranda was already going to be a pass, as was Thane. Possibly Grunt, I keep going back and forth on that one. But everyone else is a solid want. I suppose it's not so much paying $17.99 + shipping as it is knowing that I'd never be able to stop there. It'll end up being a $100+ purchase. Ah well. Thanks for the heads up on the DLC too- I assumed it'd be some little booster like that, but I didn't know for sure. Medi-gel is worth its weight in gold, though. I swear I never get any anymore.

Haha, yeah, I saw the Play Arts prototypes, but that's a pretty steep bill. Totally worth it, I know, just hard to commit to. We'll see. I'll be graduated by then, and hopefully have an income again. Kind of like to see who all they're planning, too. Garrus is nice, but Shep would never feel right and I liked ME1 Ash better than ME3 Ash.

wait...so Legion comes with the mantis while Garrus has the widow? That's dumb.


had a good premium spectre pack on Sunday, unlocked the sabre and the Krogan battlemaster, he hits like a truck but I don't know what weapon to use with him without either sacrificing firepower or killing his cooldowns.

SMG, especially if you have the ultralight materials mod. It's basically just to cover your ass after you Charge -> Carnage so you can get back into cover to line up your next combo. You can also finish off weakened enemies that weren't totally raped by your Carnage and melee.

didn't spec into carnage.. also lightweight materials are bugged and don't work on anything other than the Geth SMG unfortunately. It shows an effect in the weapon cooldown percentage screen but if you look at the actual cooldown time in your powers tab it won't change whether they're equipped or not.

Yeah, I had been hurting for medi-gel. Hopefully they put that jumbo equipment pack up again soon!
Grunt was really the only decent figure from the first wave. His range of motion is slightly better than the rest. But yeah, he doesn't look much like his in-game representation. The second wave was a lot better, in that regard.



Also, the Geth Engineer is amaaaazing. Love my turret. Restores shields while deterring and roasting enemies, mmmm-mmm! Just wish I could unlock some more damn color options.
