A loose Scraplet wandering around??? Get back to the damn bar where you belong.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (27 July 2017 - 01:16 PM)

Or a scraplet!

@  Dracula : (27 July 2017 - 12:25 PM)

you might be a witch or a vampire.

@  Dracula : (27 July 2017 - 12:25 PM)

it's called "melting," yeah

I can't be the only one.

Anyone get this weird sensation when they're showering in hot water?

@  Daith : (26 July 2017 - 11:48 PM)

Stop making business sense! Your triggering my irrational hatred more!

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 July 2017 - 10:49 PM)

We know why places ain't pre-ordering. Walmart wants "SNES Mini in stock!" In there adds to get people into the strores, and GameStop wants to hold systems back till production is over with to scalp them.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 July 2017 - 10:47 PM)

Stupid tablet made my edit a new post instead.

When The Revolution Comes, They'll Be The First Against The Wall-Mart

@  D Buster Prime : (26 July 2017 - 06:20 PM)

Wal-Mart? More like Off The Wall-Mart! Amiright?! *cries over canceled preorder*

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 July 2017 - 05:39 PM)

And the Walmart debacle has no doubt pissed off a whole lot of people. What should be fun is turned into a harrowing experience by these kind of pathetic sales tactics

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 July 2017 - 05:38 PM)

Nintendo is really starting to push fans' patience with this SNES classic thing. Why are preorders open someplaces overseas but not in North America?

@  Msol : (26 July 2017 - 05:03 PM)

Well anywho it's out in Canada and I grabbed mine. I couldn't find a thread so just as a warning: watch out when flipping the head out -- I scratched the paint off a bit while doing so. Very little clearance!

@  Msol : (26 July 2017 - 05:01 PM)

Is MPM-3 Bumblebee out in the US yet?

@  Daith : (26 July 2017 - 03:40 PM)

So all of us who thought we had our SNES Classic lined up friday night through Walmart.com just got flipped the bird.

@  Evac : (26 July 2017 - 08:51 AM)

I just hate Facebook.

@  Confuzor : (26 July 2017 - 01:25 AM)

I hate when follow a link to an article from Facebook it has all this extra junk in the address box, so if I want to copy/paste to send to my friends via text, I have to go hunt down the "permalink" so it's a more manageable size

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 08:52 PM)

*sigh* Yup.

@  Foffy : (24 July 2017 - 06:16 PM)

That's the exact opposite of what Facebook wants to happen, though. They're hoping you get sucked in by other content and end up spending more time on Facebook and/or making an account.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 04:02 PM)

I hate that these days when you use a permalink to a Facebook post, the rest of the page's material still shows up below. Like, WTF, I only want the old way of seeing the post and nothing else!

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:34 PM)

I call bullshit on that

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 01:08 PM)

Read the article. Apparently too many comics sets off the machines due to the glossy pages messing up the X-ray

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:03 PM)

what possible justification could they have to ban books containing drawings?

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 12:56 PM)

Per the article, United appears to be the only airline, but there might be others.

@  Dracula : (24 July 2017 - 12:48 PM)

Like anyone needed another reason not to fly United

@  Evac : (24 July 2017 - 12:46 PM)

No, apparently just United did.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2017 - 12:22 PM)

@  Nevermore : (24 July 2017 - 10:52 AM)

Note I wrote "bombshell"in lowercase.

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:17 AM)

in this case, face

@  Paladin : (24 July 2017 - 10:16 AM)

depends what appendage its used on.

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

I'm something something years old and I have actually never shaved with anything other than electric

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

is it worth the trouble?

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

Why does a safety razor give a closer shave than an electric razor?

@  RichardT1977 : (24 July 2017 - 10:08 AM)

Nevermore That was Shrapnel, not Bombshell.

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2017 - 10:07 AM)

Deluxe Sludge alone is enough that I probably won't have to eat anything until 2025.

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2017 - 10:06 AM)

I don't know about Paladin, but I personally am fueled by the rage of fans who have a very specific idea of what a Transformers toyline should be.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 July 2017 - 09:23 AM)

What do you mean too good? I don't recall lots of Micromaster updates.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2017 - 09:06 AM)

i remain unconvinced. "if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is."

@  General Tekno : (24 July 2017 - 08:58 AM)

yep - especially given that sure is one hyper easy forensic trail to find everyone involved in the leak

@  Nevermore : (24 July 2017 - 08:56 AM)

"How to lose your job spectacularly".

@  Nevermore : (24 July 2017 - 08:55 AM)

Jesus, that Power of the Primes bombshell leak.

@  Fear or Courage : (24 July 2017 - 08:41 AM)

At least in Canada, they have excellent customer service.

@  Maruten : (23 July 2017 - 11:33 PM)

I've ordered from them several times with no problems.

@  Telly : (23 July 2017 - 11:19 PM)

Well, this is boring as hell. That voice being used for the whole thing stinks but then he really isn't doing what he does best and just attacking it. It's like he's really afraid to piss off the fans.

And the Bill Cosby crack was just dumb.

Right off the bat he bitches excessively about the Bay films.

And drags it on.


And on.


And on.




As much as these people bitch about Bay's films being tripe and unoriginal, I'm seeing even less originality in these "parodies".

I've never not turned off a Nostalgia Critic review before it was finished before.
But I just did now. Good god this was boring. He wasn't nitpicking, he wasn't making funny jokes, he was just summarizing the events and throwing in bad Windows 7 gags (was a Windows 98 gag just too dated, Doug?) in a crappy Optimus Prime imitation.

Not to mention the initial three minutes of Bay bitching.

I haven't watched this video yet, but I thought he really liked the Bay movies? at least the first movie anyway

Tell me, did he end the review with something along the lines of "It's better than the Bay films, at least"?

No, he just went on and on about how great the cartoons were for being action packed, having great designs and knowing who they were aiming the show at. I could actually hear him choking on Sunbow's junk.

And yeah, last I checked he loved the films for being great popcorn flicks but now he wants to take the high road by trashing them and talking about thie cartoon crapping rainbows and heart shaped candy.

But...

That's the same formula the Bay movies have! Action, great designs and they knew who they were aiming the films at.

Yep.

I'm really not a fan of this pandering.There is SO much to pick on in that show. If you wanna end it by saying how much you loved it then do so but don't make a bland video about nothing for your series of comedic reviews of bad material.

The worst part of it all is Doug has previously said he was a not-caring-too-much-about-Transformers-I-was-too-old-when-it-came-out type guy, so this gushing comes WAY out of left field.

Such a shame. I was really looking forward to The Critics' "Transformers Cartoon" review & it winds up just another way to bash on the live-action films.

"Turtles" didn't get a free pass because he hated the Imagi film. "Superman" wasn't considered weaker because it didn't have Christopher Reeve. But the Robots are automatically better as a cartoon. hug that.

And what exactly was doing the review as Optimus Prime supposed to add to the experience???

Technically, Mike Michaud owns TGWTG, and apparently video management on the site isn't done by Doug. I've noticed this a lot, not just with Doug but with others, when the stuff is posted to Blip/their blogs/their personal websites well before showing up on TGWTG.com.
