If everyone would just have the exact same opinions as me then we wouldn't have this problem

@  Kalidor : (24 February 2021 - 01:49 PM)

It just depends on what it is. It is preferable to take it to P&R though. But sometimes current news as it's happening is less restrictive.

@  fourteenwings : (24 February 2021 - 12:18 AM)

Huh, good point (x3)

@  ▲ndrusi : (23 February 2021 - 11:46 AM)

Yeah. 1. People treat it like Twitter. 2. There's no "take it to P&R" since there's no P&R for the Shoutbox. 3. There's similarly no way to avoid either subjects or people in the Shoutbox since there's no division and it doesn't respect the ignore function, so people end up engaging when they normally wouldn't.

@  fourteenwings : (23 February 2021 - 10:56 AM)

Is there something about the Shoutbox that just means we get politics taking over the thing at least once a week?

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2021 - 08:26 AM)

At least your government is willing to talk about the collapsing medicare system. In quebec, their ignoring it in favour of talking about language again! Oh, and unconstitutionally denying access to eduction.

@  Shockwave 75 : (23 February 2021 - 07:52 AM)

At least here in my home province of Ontario we have a conservative gov't who doesn't want to cuz $$$$, but the argument is that they'll end up paying in medical care anyways for those sick people so why not?

@  Shockwave 75 : (23 February 2021 - 07:51 AM)

We have paid sick leave here in Canada too, but it's not very much and not everyone has it. So we're trying to get the gov't to extend it, and give it to everyone.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:23 AM)

The only reason people still go to work despite being sick is because they feel emotionally obliged to serve their employer.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:20 AM)

Some people abuse the system by somehow getting sick with a different plague every five weeks.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:20 AM)

Those six weeks are out of the employer's pocket by legal mandate. If you're still sick after those six weeks, the health insurance company takes over the payment.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:19 AM)

That's the good thing in Germany - we have legally mandated paid sick days. Six weeks (!) for a single cause (consecutive or recurring, as long as it's the same cause; reinfections long after the fact don't count), Everytime the employee gets sick with a new cause, another six weeks start.

@  tigerhawk : (22 February 2021 - 04:48 PM)

That's how my family got sick, my brothers a teacher, he has a class for expelled students, they gave full attendance these past few lockdowns out of sheer boredom, they can turn in sick and break isolation and he nor the other staff, who also got sick, couldn't do anything about it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 February 2021 - 03:03 PM)

Yeah, pretty sure the only reason people don't stay home when they're sick is that the vast majority of society lives paycheque to paycheque, and they can't afford even one missed day of work.

@  -LittleAutob... : (22 February 2021 - 11:27 AM)

That's unfortunate... I know masks can be annoying, but I think not being able to breath comfortably for a while is better than actually having the virus and not being able to breath at all. bUt Oh, pEoPLe dOn'T bELiVe ThE dAmN vIrUs Is rEaL

@  wonko the sane? : (22 February 2021 - 08:28 AM)

Hahahaha! Oh, you're serious. Yeah, no one is going to do that. Far too many are in positions where they simply cannot afford the time off, and most of the rest are the kind who won't wear the mask in a global pandemic, never mind when they alone have the sniffles.

@  Shockwave 75 : (22 February 2021 - 08:20 AM)

I just hope a take-away from this will be for people to stay home when they're sick, and if they have to go out, wear a mask so as not to spread their illness.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 February 2021 - 08:25 PM)

I think it's mostly the masking that's kept the flu season down so much, and that's unlikely to be kept up for that long. I'm sure there'll be some people who keep wearing masks for years after this, but I suspect a larger number are anticipating people able to toss them once vaccinations are complete.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2021 - 05:27 PM)

Same in canada. Doctors report it to be basically non-existant. I kinda hope they keep some stuff up after everyone is vaccinated. Like hand sanitizer at store entrances, and actually cleaning the shopping carts.

@  tigerhawk : (21 February 2021 - 05:17 PM)

On the plus side cold and flu cases are down 80% this winter thanks to lockdowns, or at least that's the case in the UK.

@  Hg Dragon : (21 February 2021 - 04:37 PM)

@  tigerhawk : (16 February 2021 - 04:58 AM)

@  Bass X0 : (15 February 2021 - 04:07 PM)

Then we got Ultra Magnus, Fortress Maximus, Dai Atlas, Megatron, Galvatron, Starscream, Thundercracker, Skywarp and Banzai-Tron in Alternity...

@  Sabrblade : (15 February 2021 - 12:04 PM)

Heh, that new Binaltech comic that Ichikawa wrote for one of the Japanese Generations books even had the other Dinobots make fun of Grimlock for his "Autobot Car" body.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 February 2021 - 12:03 PM)

They got that rescue bot grimlock that turns into a motorcycle. That's... pretty neat...

@  Otaku : (15 February 2021 - 11:35 AM)

Just to make Grimlock feel more "wrong", they even highlight how his character just seems ill-suited for a sports car alternate mode in his own backstory.  Hindsight is 20/20, so I now wish they'd made a T-rex that transformed into a sportscar.  Still probably would have been as much or more of a pain to transform, but at least it'd feel more like Grimlock. :D

@  Rycochet : (13 February 2021 - 04:39 PM)

Some Alternators were fine, then you have Grimlock/Wheeljack, with three transformers worth of fiddly and a giant buttflap.

@  Telly : (13 February 2021 - 01:49 AM)

thats the main reason i got rid of my alternators. too much of a pain to transform

@  Stepwise : (13 February 2021 - 12:13 AM)

Well after my big post about this in the Skylanders thread can't say I was surprised to see this happen. Starter set includes Jack Sparrow, Sully from Monters University, and Mr. Incredible and the Infinity platform which in the video looks very thin compared to the Portal of Power. Biggest thing however looks like there is a level editor to play with. So far in the video it shows characters from the 3 series above as well as Toy Story, Cars, Nightmare Before Christmas, Phineas and Ferb, Wreck-It Ralph, Dumbo, and Aladdin

Kotaku - You'll be able to play as Jack Sparrow, Woody or any other Disney Character in the crazy ambitious Disney Infinity

So the level-editing of Little Big Planet, the building element of Minecraft, the figure collecting of Skylanders and it's a Disney crossover game?

But... but Disney... I NEEDED that money.

Edit: Oh, and the powerups are sold in Blind Bags? No, no that's fine Disney just feed into every single one of my addictions at once. It's cool.

Those are only the power ups though, I'm assuming they should be easily ignored - or just purchased on the secondary market.

As Muppet Studios is a seperate entity to Disney Proper, this means other separate, but owned groups could show up in this....ie. Marvel & Star Wars (and Indiana Jones).

I don't know about these games, though...are they morpgs? single player? Looks like it's not avail for PC or Mac, so likely I'm out (but not out of wallet icon-fire.gif )

I'm a bit disturbed that they aren't promoting it with any Disney Classics characters, mostly just Pixar and Touchstone and Disney Channel and other offshoot properties. I'm sure the classics will be in there, but it's kind of sad that Disney doesn't think they're relevant enough to market the game with.


What's weird is that me, a life long disney fan (and share holder) didn't even notice the lack of mice or ducks, but didn't feel like "Oh, those aren't TRUE Disney characters"...Mine was more of a "one big happy family under the D". (and i was jazzed seeing Jack holding the Pixar bouncing ball)

I understand it's a generational thing. Captain Jack and Sully and Lightning McQueen are more popular today than Simba and Aladdin and Beast were when I was a kid. The characters Disney chooses to use for marketing are based on what's currently popular, so I'll just have to get over that.

I'm sure there's a 90 year-old man sitting bitter somewhere because Disney no longer chooses to market its products with Horace Horsecollar and Clara Cluck. He probably has his arms folded, thinking "Damn youngsters with their Tinkerbells and their Ludwig von Drakes and their Scrooge McDucks... NOT IN MY DAY!"


Maybe, but iirc, I have a few years on you.

Actually, the lack of Tinkerbell given the fairies push is a bit weird, too...obviously the marketers are saying "girls don't play games" but you'd think a token appearance would be there.

Of course, there's a lot of months between now and launch, so things like Agriba and Pride Rock have plenty of time (if not a whole 2nd enditon, add on pack whatever)

If only Disney would start caring for such shows. They have a huge fandom. Especially Garogyles.

Also, put some classics like Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck in there.

I wouldn't count out TV show characters, the initial promo image on their FB page shows Perry the Platypus and Phineas (but no Ferb?).

Tho Disney afternoon stuff would practically guarantee my money. Just some Gargoyles and Darkwing Duck and I"m sold.

I just hope it has more heart to it than that Disney racing game for the iPhone. That felt so-- pardon the expression-- phoned in. But I don't think this will be quite as bad.
