Alright then. If it's on PC: absolutely. Learn how to mod it and go to town, totally worth the price. On PS4 or Xbox, sure; get it on sale and make use of the mod menu to change up the game. On the Switch: I hope you got the game on VERY deep discount, but still fun.

@  Jet : (28 February 2020 - 06:06 PM)

I'd say it is. I don't play on PC, tho; I play on my Switch.

@  wonko the sane? : (28 February 2020 - 10:37 AM)

@  Benbot : (28 February 2020 - 09:52 AM)

Is Skyrim worth playing in 2020?

@  Paladin : (28 February 2020 - 07:45 AM)

when you use the character as a header image for a frontpage story, i think you lose the right to complain about anyone else "spoiling things."

@  Nevermore : (28 February 2020 - 04:45 AM)

Did I say that? I must have been joking.

@  Sabrblade : (27 February 2020 - 11:46 PM)

And you say you have no sense of humor, Nevermore. ;)

@  Nevermore : (27 February 2020 - 09:07 PM)

Gonzo, start a thread in the main "Transformers Discussion" forum with that information in the title instead.

@  Sabrblade : (27 February 2020 - 08:33 PM)

Gonzo, please don't go spoiling things like that in the chat box.

I really don't like that guy. Show the toys, not your face. I'm tired of looking at him.

@  RCX : (27 February 2020 - 09:25 AM)

Toy Galaxy is excellent.

@  Benbot : (27 February 2020 - 09:03 AM)

I think you'll be save in Greenland.

@  CORVUS : (27 February 2020 - 01:12 AM)

Toy Galaxy is my favorite overall toy-related channel on YouTube.

@  fourteenwings : (26 February 2020 - 11:29 PM)

Last year's coverage via Toy YouTubers was brilliant. However, since YouTube's new (unfortunately necessary) guidelines the companies barely invited any of them back, so all we get is super-popular collector's info.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (26 February 2020 - 09:19 PM)

If it weren't for Toy Galaxy's coverage video, I would not have known about the Defenders of the Earth figures. New toys of Flash Gordon, The Phantom, and Mandrake the Magician? In 2020? I would have said you were smoking something strong.

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:32 PM)

So the question is... has Madagascar closed down all its ports yet?

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:31 PM)

A couple that got infected attended a Carnival event with over 300 people in attendance.

@  Nevermore : (26 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

So the Corona virus keeps getting closer to where I live. Several confirmed cases in my federal state already.

@  Steevy Maximus : (26 February 2020 - 02:20 PM)

Man, only having collector sites to get Toy Fair news from sucks. Did you know there is a 4" line of kids figures for the new Avengers game coming?

@  Dekafox : (26 February 2020 - 11:54 AM)

Since Omega already exists they could name it Auntie

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:07 AM)

Oh, and one last Titan,provided we can fudge things a bit to include a character from Transformers: Animated; how about something at least resembling TF:A Omega Supreme?

@  Otaku : (26 February 2020 - 10:05 AM)

How about they find a way to make a mold they can use for both Broadside and Tidal Wave?

@  Maximus Ambus : (26 February 2020 - 02:13 AM)

Optimus Maximus, the mysterious titan of the Arisen, also Iaconus from Cyberverse.

@  TriBlurr : (25 February 2020 - 12:41 AM)

I think the only other Titan class character that would interest me after Scoponok would be Tidal Wave

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 07:34 PM)

A Titan would have more room for other toys to hang out, assuming one has the table space for it.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 03:32 PM)

Play wise which would be better a Commander Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside or a Titan Class Aircraft Carrier Mode Broadside?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 February 2020 - 01:53 PM)

I'd be interested in a deluxe or voyager Fort Max in Armada flashback red-and-green.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:49 AM)

I'd honestly be more interested in Commander-class Scorponok and Fort Max. I don't have the space for Titans.

@  Maximus Ambus : (24 February 2020 - 10:44 AM)

Make Commander class city bots to annoy collectors too

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 February 2020 - 10:43 AM)

Make two Broadsides. One Voyager-sized that only turns into a jet, and one Titan-sized that only turns into an aircraft carrier. Piss off everyone on both sides of the scale.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Since they seem to also go by the oh-so holy cartoon scale thing, he'd probably be a Commander Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 February 2020 - 10:34 AM)

Broadside is an aircraft carrier. He should probably be metroplex sized.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (24 February 2020 - 10:21 AM)

Broadside's more of a Commander Class.

@  Darth Gonzo : (24 February 2020 - 04:47 AM)

I think Broadside should be the next Titan Class figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2020 - 09:38 PM)

I tan nicely! But also have a family history of cancer... so... yeah, pasty for me it is.

@  Otaku : (23 February 2020 - 04:22 PM)

I really do begin to get sunburned after about 5 minutes of direct exposure, nowadays.  Side effect of already being pasty then going on a particular medication.  Yay?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 February 2020 - 01:36 PM)

It makes me burn. Accursed daystar.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 February 2020 - 01:33 PM)

Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy....

@  Vexwing : (22 February 2020 - 03:26 AM)

I watched L.I.L.Y.Cat on there a while back, it was surprisingly good.

@  Steevy Maximus : (21 February 2020 - 08:47 PM)

@Dekafox, no DTP, but they DO have LILY Cat ;)

@  CORVUS : (21 February 2020 - 08:46 PM)

For me, it's "chocolate therapy".

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2020 - 08:32 PM)

Tonight dough owns my soul.

@  CORVUS : (21 February 2020 - 07:28 PM)

Stupid, delicious Ben & Jerry's.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 February 2020 - 06:42 PM)

Ahh. I remember watching Bubblegum Crisis 2020 or whatever.

@  Dekafox : (21 February 2020 - 06:25 PM)

Next you'll say they have Dominion Tank Police and L.I.L.Y.Cat

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 February 2020 - 06:06 PM)

Bubblegum Crisis, going by several shouts down.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 February 2020 - 05:38 PM)

BGC?

@  Bass X0 : (21 February 2020 - 02:33 PM)

Would it? The ponies seem to walk normally on clouds. I think that pegasi can alter the composition of clouds, making them harder or softer, but I could be wrong about that.

Yeah, still not feeling any excitement. At best, this is a step to the side for Twilight. It still feels less impressive than the actual destiny that was hinted for Twilight.

Twilight becoming the next Star Swirl the Bearded, a wizard who's legend has lasted longer than that of even Celestia. It fits with all the hints about Twilight's magical abilities being special, while Twilight getting a royal title doesn't really connect to anything.

Twilight's magical skill and intelligence have been focused on for the entirety of the series. Twilight being a legendary wizard has been foreshadowed since The Cutie Mark Chronicles. Twilight becoming a princess seems completely unrelated to what she has done.

Being a princess might have more to do with magic than has ever been hinted in show, but we're going to have to wait for the next episode for that.

... yeah, I don't see where any of that "next Starswirl the Bearded" stuff was hinted at all. And to say being a Princess won't have anything to do with her magical abilities assumes a lot, also.

Given that managing a country has been shown to be a political task, there's no reason to assume it would revolve around magic. The episode might change that, but at the moment, there's nothing linking magic with the title.

Not specifically being Star Swirl, but Twilight's magic has been focused on a lot through the series. It's the only thing that has been given a focus as meaning something special in the future. Assuming that she will become an important wizard is the most logical conclusion.

Even in the third season, Celestia was talking about Twilight advancing in her career as a student of magic, and Luna was shown holding a book with stars and swirls on it. Simple conclusion is that Twilight is following Star Swirl's path. This season also had a couple of episodes focusing on Twilight learning and using more powerful magic.

The summary itself mentions Twilight writing her own magic.

And Twilight has been given political and social responsibilities from pretty much the start.

So... yeah.

Twilight's brother was the Captain of the Guard before becoming a prince, and Twilight has actually been given more responsibility than Cadance, who has always been a princess. Twilight's social and political responsibilities seem independent of being royalty.

She's been treated as more important than just a princess throughout the series, and this honestly kind of devalues her accomplishments, in my opinion.

How writing magic links to becoming a princess is currently unexplained. The synopsis makes it sounds like becoming a princess was Twilight's destiny, rather than granted as a reward for writing new magic, which makes slightly more sense.

I think you're niggling over details and prioritizing your own interpretations over any others.

Any search for foreshadowing involves niggling over details.

She has great magical power and skill, that leads to being a powerful wizard. Simplest thing in the world, nothing complicated enters into it.

Twilight's magical growth has been given more focus than her growth in other areas. Everything else she has done has extended from her career as a student of magic. How being a student of magic turns to being a princess, I don't know. Maybe the explanation the cartoon gives will make sense, maybe it won't. Should be entertaining to find out.
