better than the current ones at least

@  Rycochet : (26 February 2017 - 09:08 AM)

90s Nicktoons were awful.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 08:16 AM)

Yeah, I'd get really pumped to watch it and the other Nicktoons.

@  lastmaximal : (26 February 2017 - 08:04 AM)

You digdug?

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 07:40 AM)

Hate watching stuff like that.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 07:40 AM)

Also, I digged Doug. Mostly for the ancillary characters, though. Doug himself is one of those characters who gets into situations that make YOU feel embarrassd. Like Fred Savage on The Wonder Years.

@PlutoniumBoss *Pinwheel fistbump*

@  LBD "Nyt... : (26 February 2017 - 07:38 AM)

I remember Today's Special. The Toronto part was something of a revelation from my wife and her family when I came here.

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 02:34 AM)

In hindsight, I'm pretty sure Miss Frizzle was a Time Lord.

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 February 2017 - 02:34 AM)

I got into science because of Magic School Bus.

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 February 2017 - 11:25 PM)

Anyone else remember Puttnam's Prairie Emporium? Not sure if it aired outside Canada

@  TM2-Megatron : (25 February 2017 - 11:21 PM)

Today's Special was a favourite of mine. Some of it was actually filmed at a department store here in Toronto

@  PlutoniumBoss : (25 February 2017 - 10:34 PM)

Eureka! and Start Here were awesome too.

@  The Doctor Who : (25 February 2017 - 09:59 PM)

I remember watching Newton's Apple on PBS. That's where I learned about thermal insulation layers and why things change temperature faster when you blow on them.

@  MrBlud : (25 February 2017 - 09:51 PM)

Today's Special was my jam!

@  PlutoniumBoss : (25 February 2017 - 09:48 PM)

Pff. I remember Pinwheel and Today's Special.

@  Paladin : (25 February 2017 - 09:47 PM)

my first Nick show was "Eureka's Castle."

@  ShadowMan024 : (25 February 2017 - 07:58 PM)

And Rocko's Modern Life was WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY better.

@  ShadowMan024 : (25 February 2017 - 07:57 PM)

Hey Arnold! was better.

@  Echowarrior : (25 February 2017 - 06:42 PM)

And then bought out by Disney.

@  Echowarrior : (25 February 2017 - 06:42 PM)

It certainly wasn't a terrible show. I think it was just overshadowed by its contemporaries.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 February 2017 - 06:19 PM)

I mean, it's not like it was bad, it was just kinda....there. Not especially memorable.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 February 2017 - 06:18 PM)

That requires us to remember that Doug happened, though.

@  TriBlurr : (25 February 2017 - 01:04 PM)

Just send him to whatever world the Cartoon Doug took place in. Lots of purple people there

@  unluckiness : (25 February 2017 - 03:55 AM)

It's gonna go hungry after eating that mind-control guy

@  Waspinator : (25 February 2017 - 03:49 AM)

It's eating purple people and it sure is fine.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 February 2017 - 02:27 AM)

It's a one-eyed, one-horned, flying, purple people eater!

@  Pennpenn : (25 February 2017 - 12:43 AM)

But it's purple?

@  Noideaforaname : (25 February 2017 - 12:28 AM)

Allspark's just a mean green mother from outer space, and it's BAD!

@  ShadowMan024 : (25 February 2017 - 12:10 AM)

@  Patchouli Kn... : (24 February 2017 - 11:19 PM)

@  Foffy the Sheep : (24 February 2017 - 10:09 PM)

My Allspark has never heard of a mother.

@  BlackMax : (24 February 2017 - 09:28 PM)

My mother has never heard of an Allspark.

@  The Doctor Who : (24 February 2017 - 08:54 PM)

This is your mother on Allspark drugs.

@  Bass X0 : (24 February 2017 - 08:42 PM)

This is your Allspark. This is drugs. This is your Allspark on drugs.

So can I speak to it and say 'Computer, Play Gears of War' and then say 'Engage' in my best Captain Picard imitation and have it do what I say?

And if I swear at my game because I die will it tell me not to use such dirty language?

Name something in life you might think twice to die for
No matter if it's right you take a knife and say goodbye for
Out the lights and say goodnight like nothing's left to try for
Out of mind and out of sight decide to close your eyes for

Just an announcement, no footage but I guess with the success of Defiance it kinda makes sense. Screw a movie, let's get a show, right?

For those that don't know, They're going to focus on the new licenses and games at E3.

They're getting all the sports stuff out of the way now.

If this new Xbox is the only way to watch this, well, I'm gonna have to be an early adopter.

Have they said how much the dumb thing is gonna cost?

"Later this year," no release date or pricing. Hm. And yeah, sports games and Call of Duty leave me pretty cold. Show me Red Dead Redemption 2, or some innovative new game really using this powerful new hardware, and you'd have my attention.

No word on backwards compatibility either, right?

Same here. Absolutely zero interest. I could care less about an "entertainment hub". I buy video game consoles to play video games. Not to mention it's ugly as hug, and the name is horrendous. Who the hug thought that was an acceptable name?

It looks nice, I'm going to need to feel the controller in my hands before I decide.

As to games, they said they'll show them at E3 and that they have what, 15 exclusive titles, eight of which are new IPs?


I think this generation will come down to the launch lineup for me.

PM me if you're bored!

Which still leaves us cold for now and they could mention if it were Backward Compatible now couldn't they. But Xbox One is so far has me as hyped as the rest of the new console gen. Not at all for the most part. I like what they are doing with the all in one deal, but game wise until they bring out something else besides the next CoD and Sports I'm not going to buy in even if the only way to watch the Halo series is over Xbox One. Besides I need to upgrade to an HDTV before I think of getting any next gen console.

I'm excited for it. I don't care about any of the sports or war simulation games they are talking about... But I'm drooling thinking about the possibilities for the next fallout, or elder scrolls games.

As for the all in one entertainment hub, works for me. I have no problem with having to juggle fewer remotes. Our 360 is already what we use to watch movies, play DVDs, and all that as it is this is just the next logical step I think.

Assuming it wont cost all of the money, I think I have my christmas list written. icon-fire.gif
