I snagged Rainmakers for half off.  They make me want jolly ranchers.

@  Trpodeca : (18 January 2020 - 04:21 PM)

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)

@  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.

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.

What are you playing?

South Park: The Stick of Truth. Had a weekend marathon straight to the end and ended up missing some of the collectables. I've started a second playthrough with a different setup (first time was mage, going with warrior now) and I'm gonna be more careful this time.


Final Fantasy XIV. I've been on board since 1.0's beta years ago. I've enjoyed it quite a bit since the redesign, but I've been bored with it recently. I'm just not social enough to enjoy the party-up-with-random-people endgame content, so I've run out of things to do.


Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy. I'm a fan of the series, so of course I'm enjoying this one. I'm just a few chapters in so far. I got it around the same time as South Park, so I haven't had a good chance to play it yet.

Playing a lot of PvZ Garden Warfare on Xbox One. It's a lot of fun.

I'm in the Project Spark beta, but my interest quickly died off when I saw all the micro transactions and having to pay for 'spark time' to play user created games that feature content you haven't paid for.

Finished South Park awhile ago, missed out on some of the collectibles mostly due to the auto save feature and not feeling like replayinfg the whole thing. Will play again at some point as another class.

Finished Layton & Azran Legacy.

Played the free cases of Layton Brothers-its good for a mobile game, but feels like it's trying too hard to be Phoenix. May spend a few bucks for the extra cases at some point.

Eagerly awaiting Layton vs Ace Attorney, though it seems like in the US it will be e-shop only?? Bah.

A bit of South Park and a LOT of TItanfall. This game is addictive! I've never played a shooter where I actually cared about leveling up. But then again the last shooter I actually cared about was the Halo 3 Beta...

I'm playing Disney Infinity a lot with my daughter (and even some on my own).  I've also gotten back into playing a bit of Madden 2012.  I like that version because of Peyton still being on the Colts. :)

Picked up GTAIV on sale from Steam... and boy am I glad I got it for less than $8.  Screen shots do not communicate just how... strangely the game plays.  From what appears to be wonky procedural animation to cars that handle like madness incarnate it's a really awkward game. Perhaps it's just a problem of playing on PC or just being too used to Saints Row, but I really liked San Andreas, but this is just... wow.

Ah, good to know.  'cause Steam shows a Metacritic score of 90/100 and the reviews on the store page are praising like mad.  Just goes to show: Don't always trust the popular opinion.  


But wow, even for a crap game the way it's crap is just amazing.  It's like Sonic 2006, someone had to sign off on this.  They had to look at those jangly, clunky, near-Muppet-like animations and say "Yeah, that's what we're going for!" and then watch cars bounce into the air over small dips in the road and say "Yes, this is realistic and not at all unplayable."  Not to mention the whole DRM nonsense.


If I had payed the full price for this game, I would be rightfully angry.  At just under $8, I just kind of find it amusing, like an episode of MST3K that you can play.  This is the Red Zone Cuba of video games.

Back to Age of Wonders II - The Wizard's Throne. Man, what a hard and sometimes frustrating game (the AI can be a real troll sometimes) but it's a lot of fun too. Just finished the last Fire sphere campaign and now moving on to Water (sigh... Halflings... this will be tough). 


I am preparing for AoW III this way, and also because, well, my video card kinda died weeks ago. As I wanted to buy a new PC in the near future anyway, I decided not to invest in a new card for about 40-50$, which would be obsolete for my new PC - sadly, my friend who will get the new PC for me (he works in a PC hardware retail store) has generally been sick in the last few weeks, meaning things are always getting delayed ...

I started playing Deathspank. I think that I am getting close to the end of it, and its been a pretty awesome game so far. It has some really annoying parts, but overall, it is definitely a fun little action rpg to play.

For me it quickly lost its charm - yes, the quests and character interactions are hilarious, but the combat is repetitive and after a while you will stop finding any new weapons. I never tried out the sequel for this reason.

Well, I have found a pretty good amount of melee weapons, but there is only three ranged weapons in the game so far. I am almost to level 19, and I assume that level 20 is the cap,

I just dove into Aliens: Colinal Marines. I picked up a new xbox 360 copy for $5.99, and I thought, why not? So far, I am three missions in, and I am actually enjoying myself. The story is a bit of a mess so far, and the game isn't that difficult on the highest setting, but I am enjoying the weapon customization, and the music is very well done. If you get a chance, pick this up. Gamestop has it for $6 "new", and for that price, its definitely worth it.

Still on fallen earth: and I've lost my fear of PVP zones and progress towns. I needed a resource for research, and found it in ample supply around a progress town called "Hollister" which was also completely abandoned by other players.


And even if there are other folk running around... no one seriously shoots at travelers. And even if they do; I'll just wake up in the pod in the safe zone. I can log, do something else for a while and come back to it later.


Edit: Yay! My primary now has the resources to commit to the advanced motorcycle research. I just need to wait for a day and a half for the research to be completed! Christ, it better be worth it.
