@  wonko the sane? : (22 September 2018 - 01:53 PM)

So apparently some models of air-conditioner are on trays inside the case, so they can be removed for easy access to the internals. I did not know that two hours ago: and have since cleaned three. It's been a learning kind of day.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 September 2018 - 09:15 AM)

There's probably been a Pokedex-themed 3DS cover.

@  Noideaforaname : (21 September 2018 - 04:34 PM)

I still got that Pikachu Edition Gameboy Color from back in the day. Yellow and Blue and with Pikachu, Jigglypuff and Togepi on the screen.

Quote of the day: I either need bourbon or aspirin, and I'm pretty sure the liquor cabinet is closer than the medicine chest.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 September 2018 - 02:38 PM)

I don't recall any Pokedex themed DS or Game Boy, but plenty of Pokemon-themed ones. My favourite, and the one I've got myself, was the Pokemon Red/Blue themed 3DS with the swappable faceplates that came out around the time the original games were made available via digital download

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 September 2018 - 02:30 PM)

I'm fairly certain Nintendo has done Pokéball red and white, but I don't know about specific Pokédex colors.

@  Paladin : (21 September 2018 - 11:10 AM)

random thought: has Nintendo ever made a 3DS that looks like a Pokedex? because that seems like a GOLDMINE waiting to happen...

@  Nevermore : (21 September 2018 - 03:23 AM)

Wiigii! Titans Return Grotusque for only 60 Euros (actually 70 but I somehow had an eBay gift card for reasons that escape me) with free shipping from within my own country!

@  Whirl Maximus : (21 September 2018 - 03:02 AM)

That was the plan for Predators too with the Super Predators.

@  Waspinator : (21 September 2018 - 01:46 AM)

So, apparently in the new Predator movie, the Predators don't hunt us for honor or the challenge or anything like that, but because they're stealing human DNA to modify themselves. Congrats Hollywood, on making a monster far less cool and scary.

@  Pennpenn : (20 September 2018 - 08:46 AM)

I only started playing it recently so I don't know what it was like before. Actually surprised they haven't finished the story yet. Then again, unless they introduce another world it's pretty much just Maleficent and whatever the Foretellers are playing at left.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 September 2018 - 08:30 AM)

Geeze.. I reloaded up Kingdom Hearts X for the first time in a long time. That game has massivily inflated from when I played it when it first launced in the US.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 09:07 AM)

It's an annoying thing to have happen in any game. I'm hoping they actually finish releasing all the story mode parts before 3 comes out.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 06:24 AM)

Ahh. Hadn't played that in a long time.. Since before the PVP I think.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 04:33 AM)

Kingdom Hearts Union Cross. Specifically the PVP fights.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 04:31 AM)

What game PennPenn

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 03:13 AM)

Man, I love it when you've got limited attempts at something in a game, said game crashes at the end of the thing, so you lose the attempt but don't get any credit.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 08:44 PM)

I know. I'm back to the classic purple for the first time since the comic theme was introduced.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 08:32 PM)

Alright thanks, gonna be weird without the speech bubble boxes but I'll manage.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 07:59 PM)

Nope, ongoing problem for a bunch of us. The mods know, so... just hunker down and wait. In the mean time: changing themes will sort it out for a bit. Only the comic theme is affected.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 05:36 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (11 September 2018 - 12:15 PM)

Fix it, like, found a working power adaptor, or fix it like: there was saudering involved.

@  Lazy Garou : (11 September 2018 - 11:58 AM)

There's been consistently good sc-fi flicks; most just fly under the radar as lower-budget or indie pictures

@  Steevy Maximus : (10 September 2018 - 09:28 PM)

If you can forget about that garbage Ghost in the Shell feature...

@  Steevy Maximus : (10 September 2018 - 09:27 PM)

Upgrade is a GREAT dark sci fi throwback film. Kind of feels like the genre has been nailing some good stuff after a LONG time of drek

So, "I before E, except after Siege"? :D

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (10 September 2018 - 01:59 PM)

Memorandum to all: the word "siege" is spelled with the "i" before the "e".

Usually pretty much everythign is shown publicly with pics.

Been waiting for this press release to start toy fair running.

Wish it was more interesting. Beast Hunters are super old news and Contructibots are a good idea executed in the most derivitive and boring way imaginable to me. No interest there.

Not too disapointed that the press release is a snore. I'm fairly sure there will be some new BH stuff and fairly hopefull there'll be some new Generations stuff to see this weekend. (Comic packs I hope. I wonder what the chances of a 3rd wave of Data Disks are?)


-ZacWilliam, I wonder if the Blizzard about to obliterate us here on the East Coast will get in the way of Hasbro toy fair coverage. I've really been dieing to see new stuff.

I'm wondering as NY will likely have at least a foot of snow. I know I'm probably going to be buried in 2 feet. If all this happens I won't be able to provide coverage.

I'm hoping that they some how push it back to next weekend.

No.

Toy Fair is the place where they show all the big upcoming stuff to the Retail buyers to get the toys into stores. Not doing that to save reveals for "the fans" would be a terrible idea buisness wise.


-ZacWilliam, sure we se new stuff at Botcon that wasn't at toyfair but it's ussually stuff from much further down the line to the point that it wouldn't be available to show at Toy Fair yet.

Is there any way you can head into the city now? If you have to be snowed in a blizzard you might as well be snowed in Toy Fair. icon-arcee.gif

Joking, but this is a concern coverage wise.

Hasbro's official Transformers Facebook page has promised pics/coverage. I wonder if they have the official image packets of the reveals if they'd still post those even if the Blizzard closes Toy Fair.


-ZacWilliam, not sure what the proceedure/likelyhood of cancellation-rescheduling is. Ususally these things are big presentations and the venues well booked, I'm not sure if rescheduling is possible. Hopefully it will work out. (I wanna see new toys! icon-arcee.gif ) We'll see...

We've gotten some pretty good reveals in the past. Generations Straxus/Darkmount comes to mind.
We also often see stuff on display that we've only gotten listings/blurry photos of before.

I personally have never known Hasbro to delay an event, regardless of the weather, so honestly, if you can't make it in on Saturday afternoon, it's likely there won't be an alternative.

Personally, I feel worse for the Mommy Bloggers: their appointment's usually right before ours. At least we'll have a few hours to get shoveled out, since the snow's due to end in the metro NY area by 9 AM Saturday. We'll see!
