I was using my account on another comptuer, and oddly it seemed to default to $US rather than converting it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 January 2020 - 02:02 PM)

You should be able to set eBay to display in your local currency, although personally I like to know the actual currency the item is listed in so I know if I need to account for forex fees or not

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:34 AM)

I'd also like to take the opportunity to say I despise Ebay for showing the list prices in US money.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:23 AM)

Well there is an overpriced limited edition, but I don't want to pay that much money for it.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 06:21 AM)

Well great. The one Usagi Yojimbo volume I don't have and it's out of stock.

@  Rycochet : (17 January 2020 - 06:15 PM)

I both love and hate that the Alien franchise seems to have had more luck finding a niche as a line of children's toys than it has at producing worthwhile films.

@  Donocropolis : (17 January 2020 - 06:35 AM)

I've seen them on the shelves at Walmart. They're pretty great looking retro Aliens toys. https://www.walmart....-Vary/934039489

@  fourteenwings : (17 January 2020 - 01:11 AM)

IIRC somebody on here mentioned an unbranded Alien toy a couple of weeks ago? It seems like it was actually part of a collection for the Alien movie series by Lanard. Mattel's making some stuff too.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 January 2020 - 03:12 PM)

Is it really a worse name than say, HMS Spanker?

@  Maximus Ambus : (16 January 2020 - 02:36 PM)

'Boaty McBoatface' was a actual thing?! Wow.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (14 January 2020 - 02:00 PM)

Might be worth bringing back this thread.

@  ThunderWear : (14 January 2020 - 01:53 PM)

Of course I had the idea to download all the pdfs like a week too late. Anyone got an archive?

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 January 2020 - 12:48 PM)

The Collector Club is dead. Seems like it all came down shortly after New Year

@  ThunderWear : (13 January 2020 - 11:06 PM)

I can't get to the collector club website. anyone else? I was literally going to download all the fiction to finish reading.

@  Maximus Ambus : (13 January 2020 - 04:50 AM)

News today is all 'there's a CHANCE it would snow in July' and 'dogs COULD bite back'.

@  Benbot : (12 January 2020 - 10:05 PM)

Holy crap, do many people get hurt by them?

@  wonko the sane? : (12 January 2020 - 02:11 PM)

Even in fallout, they never carpet bombed with nukes.

@  Maximus Ambus : (12 January 2020 - 12:43 PM)

I hope the stockpiled nuclear weapons of the US and Russia are accounted for then.

@  Nevermore : (12 January 2020 - 12:22 PM)

Geez. 1760 (!) bombs from World War II that had not detonated and were still armed have been found. That's only the numbers for the federal state of Germany I live in, and only for the first three quarters of 2019. For all of 2018, the total number was 2811 (!!) bombs.

@  CVReynolds : (11 January 2020 - 11:05 PM)

I've been wanting a Tarantulas that turns into a more realistic tarantula for a long time. Maybe Takara will someday do a Masterpiece, which would be neat. But I really want to see a modernized look like in the IDW comics.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (11 January 2020 - 09:43 PM)

We need more Waspinators.. and rattraps.

@  Ashley : (11 January 2020 - 07:09 PM)

I'm on board with that

@  Dekafox : (11 January 2020 - 06:17 PM)

What I'm hearing is we need Cyberverse Waspinator

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 January 2020 - 01:27 AM)

He's appeared across more branding changes than Waspinator, so maybe it's more the other way around.

@  Ashley : (10 January 2020 - 12:01 AM)

is C3PO the Waspinator of Star Wars? he'll live forever, because it's funny for him to suffer

@  Sabrblade : (09 January 2020 - 11:52 PM)

He's still waiting for them to be funny.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 January 2020 - 10:35 PM)

Why?

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 04:02 PM)

I've been watching South Park, Family Guy and The Simpsons with a straight face for a decade now.

@  wonko the sane? : (09 January 2020 - 03:18 PM)

If that's what it takes to get you to take the medication, sure.

@  Bass X0 : (09 January 2020 - 01:52 PM)

If I go crazy, will you still call me Superman?

@  fourteenwings : (09 January 2020 - 11:37 AM)

I mean, it is easier to protect HDDs, and you can retransfer the data over and over forever?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 January 2020 - 10:45 AM)

Not in this comparison. He's making his own files, so they're (presumably) not restricted by DRM, so he can copy them as many times as he wants. It's potentially more reliable in the long term than hoping the specific copies you originally bought never accrue any damage for the rest of your life.

@  Echowarrior : (09 January 2020 - 10:44 AM)

I prefer physical copies too. Easier to protect something physical and tangible.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 09:55 AM)

I prefer having physical copies.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (09 January 2020 - 08:56 AM)

I have plenty of physical media I turn into digital media for my plex server. Just finished ripping Ultra Seven

@  fourteenwings : (09 January 2020 - 08:50 AM)

Isn't the general consensus that we're supposed to be over physical media anyways?

@  Paladin : (09 January 2020 - 08:17 AM)

i still don't own a Blu-Ray player.

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 January 2020 - 07:35 AM)

My current TV works just fine. I don't see a need to upgrade. And by the time I do, the Next Big Thing will probably be out anyway.

@  Benbot : (09 January 2020 - 03:58 AM)

Me neither. I'm no rebel, though. I'm just poor.

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 January 2020 - 03:38 AM)

I haven't gone 4K yet, I'm a rebel.

@  Ashley : (07 January 2020 - 11:50 PM)

the comic theme is amazing

@  Bass X0 : (07 January 2020 - 03:18 PM)

Sounds like Victor Caroli but I’m not sure.

@  Bass X0 : (07 January 2020 - 02:35 PM)

Should I recognise the narrator of the Mutant Hunt trailer?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 January 2020 - 04:30 AM)

I got me Titans Return Blaster, now watch them unveil Earthrise Blaster and Generations Perceptor, a retool of Titans Blaster.

@  ThunderWear : (06 January 2020 - 10:22 PM)

I recently switched to to the comic theme here at the Allspark and I'm so happy I just want to look at it.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (06 January 2020 - 08:12 AM)

Can you not take so many lines to say anything?

@  fourteenwings : (06 January 2020 - 07:47 AM)

Iunno, maybe people having unique pronunciations of things re:how they understand language makes the world a more colourful place, rather than one where we correct every seemingly grievous error?

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:12 AM)

Others insist on "Michael Yackson".

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:01 AM)

Because the very combination of those sounds is unknown to them, and thus they avoid it as if it were contagious.

@  Nevermore : (06 January 2020 - 06:00 AM)

For example, the English "J" sound consists of sounds that exist in German: Basically, it's just a "d" sound followed by a very soft "sh". Yet there are many Germans who insist on calling the late King of Pop "Michael Checkson".

I've been trying to dig through my ever growing pile of shame, an epic backlog of games I've grown through various Steam sales and PS+. I'm doing pretty well too, burning through an SP game per week on average on top of the games I'm already playing. Of course I still have many more games to go across multiple platforms and a bunch of DLC for a fair number of completed games as well. 

 

I just finished God of War Ascension this morning, it wasn't bad for a game I paid $10 for and used the free $10 credit I got for buying Need for Speed during some sale Sony was having... So basically free. It was not nearly as good as GoW 3 was. Also finished up Binary Domain and Spec Ops: The Line a couple weeks ago. 

 

Now I'm starting Shadow of the Colossus, not sure if I'll really get into the game or not but I've heard really good things and could use a slightly slower paced game as a palette cleanser from the shooters/brawlers I've been playing lately.

 

Edit: I'm 3 colossi in and I'm torn on this game. The colossi battles are great, but I feel like they forgot the rest of the game. Story is insignificant, no enemies to battle, just a tedious journey with maybe some platforming that feels like a precursor to Assassins Creed or Uncharted. 

 

At the same time I've also been playing Civ V with a buddy a lot lately, Need for Speed Rivals (going for the platinum trophy), Batman Origins: Blackgate on my Vita, broken up with sessions of Guacamelee on the Vita as well, and I've restarted Far Cry 3 recently too (really want to play the co-op on that). 

 

I find I tend to multi-game a lot lately, not sure why. I'll be playing Civ V online on my monitor while playing God of War or NfS on the big screen, and sometimes play the Vita at the same time. I think I may have gamer ADD or something... maybe I'm just really bored.

Uh... I'm technically in the ESO beta, but after a few hours of play I'm not interested anymore. I'm liking fallout new vegas and super mario galaxy 2 right now. Putting in some good time on both of those.

Maybe too many strat games at once. But the steam sale was good for them.

Never had a problem. There was one point on saturday morning where I couldn't log in, but My brother was reporting problems at the same time so I assume it was a hot patch.

So recently Videomaster got around to sending my Backlog of b-day gifts, which includes Saints Row 1 and 2 double pack. Today I finally decide to play it. I'd kinda forgotten how bad SR1 is in certain aspects, the respect system here feels much more like forcing you to play activities and side missions.

 

On a sidenote, when creating my character, I realized you could have Green Dreadlocks... and well now I'm playing with a pseudo-'The Batman' styled Joker.

Edit - This quote is from X-Warlock. I don't know why all of it didn't show up. :???

That's honestly what I thought was so brilliant about SOTC. The feeling of isolation, and then BOOM this massive creature you have to take down.

 

Binary Domain and Spec Ops were both very good, I thought. Both very underappreciated.

 

I can also relate when it comes to your backlog problem. I have games piling up for the PS3, and then I went out and bought a 3DS on Black Friday (which I love). And at the same time, I'm very temped to buy a PS4. Being a nerd can get complicated. :D

I see the appeal in it, but it just sits a little oddly with me. I'll still play the game through but likely as a slower pace than I originally anticipated. Probably as a small break in between other games, play a colossi or two, put it down and come back again in a day or two.

 

Binary Domain wasn't bad, it was an interesting Japanese take on western shooters, but ultimately nothing to write home about. Spec Ops really impressed me tho. Gameplay was fun, but story was great and I honestly did not expect them to go as far or deep with it as they did. And the setting was just awesome, Dubai after a major sand storm and with a rogue platoon of US troops amid civil chaos. 

 

Oh, and I am now 2 only 1 trophy away from the platinum in Need for Speed Rivals, basically I just need to finish up all the cop speed lists. Probably have it by the weekend.

Hearthstone: Heroes of WarCraft closed Beta interspersed with some World of WarCraft and I just got Elder Signs: Omens for my Nook.

 

Oddly enough, Elder Signs is a lot of addictive fun for being a dice game. And I blame it on TotalBiscuit (The Youtuber, not the Allsparker :D):

Playing Thief on my PS4 lately, reviews be damned this is a decent game. Also have some sessions of Strider thrown in for good measure. On my PS3 I'm rocking the Ratchet and Clank HD collection pretty hard having platinum'd R&C2 and about halfway through R&C3 now. 

 

On PC I've been doing some Far Cry 3 co-op, still doing the BF4 thing, and Borderlands 2 (because I just cannot get sick of this game), and playing Batman Blackgate on my Vita.
