It's too bad it's like this because some of what they're doing with tiny cars is pretty cool, but I'm not willing to sign up for that f-ing hassle.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:13 PM)

At this point I'm trying to decide how much of a markup I'm willing to pay some scalper scum or if I should just say to hell with it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 September 2019 - 02:11 PM)

That is pretty much the constant story with Hot Wheels. Anything you might actually want has most likely been picked clean and marked up.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:02 PM)

I've been watching some Youtube Hot Wheels videos out of boredom and discovered there exists a new car that just came out maybe a month ago that looks just like one I had when I was little, and I've been looking around hoping to get it. Slim picking everywhere, but online there are a slew of sellers asking for 3 and 4x the retail price, plus a hefty shipping markup.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 01:59 PM)

Oh, that explains the problem I've encountered with finding one little car

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 September 2019 - 01:31 PM)

Oh boy. I work at Target, and literally every single morning, there are two or three guys outside who make a beeline straight to the Hot Wheels.

I've never read the source material and don't know much about it, but I enjoyed the first film quite a bit, and found the second alright

@  Sabrblade : (17 September 2019 - 09:49 PM)

The first movie was definitely not for me. I flat out hated it. Didn't even bother with the sequel.

@  Maruten : (17 September 2019 - 05:02 PM)

I liked the first movie a lot and enjoyed the original volume of the book, and the way they were developed in parallel was really interesting. It all got super extra unpleasant as soon as they went back though. I don't remember really whether the initial sequels are "good" or not, but either way both the second movie and the second run of the book quickly demonstrated that the property sure wasn't for me.

@  Paladin : (17 September 2019 - 04:45 PM)

i have a real hard time offering praise of anything connected to an utter shitstain like Mark Millar.

@  Rycochet : (17 September 2019 - 01:23 PM)

Kick Ass 2 was okay for what it was, a sequel to a film that was okay, just okay. It had a good performance from Nic Cage while the sequel had Jim Carrey who decided he didn't want to promote it after one of america's regularly scheduled massacres.

@  Benbot : (17 September 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Was Kick Ass 2 really that bad? I never got around to seeing it, but after watching the first movie again the other day, I'm thinking about it.

If you file electronically, I find you usually get your refund within a couple weeks

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 06:22 PM)

Well, lucky it took less than two months for me. For a little over 200 Euros.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Pretty much, yeah. Canada revenue will be all up your ass if you earn less than 200K and owe tax, but your refund is basically "duke nukem forever".

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Whereas if you overpaid and they have to refund you, they will take their sweet time to let you know.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Like, here in Germany, if the tax authority responds to your tax report quickly, you can rest assured they want more money.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Do tax authorities in other countries base their time to respond to filed tax reports on whether they owe or are owed as well?

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 11:13 AM)

Check what the requirements are for your cad program, and try to beat them by about 20%, and understand that software requirements have been stable for a few years: not really keeping up with the advancements in hardware. Unless you're doing something SPECIFIC which requires ludicrous amounts of power, just give your self a cushion on hardware and don't bother going whole hog.

@  Benbot : (10 September 2019 - 10:16 AM)

What I'm currently using is an i5 2018 Surface Laptop. My current desktop is all but dead. I think in the end affordability will win out over specs. I need to use CAD programs, but I'm a student, not a professional.

Alright. The damages now seem to include my primary SSD. Thankfully, the gaming drive (I have now lost all my games and mods entirely.) Let me wipe it and install there. Once the crucial utility is installed again, will verify the drive.

The base designs look great, but the models used for the game and show look weird and stretched out. Kinda sucks they ended up like that.
 
In example, in the concept art Knuckle's head is just a bit wider than the game model which makes it work and not feel "stuck on" like the game model does.


The concept art was what I based that on

 

 

Well, I disagree with that notion.

I thought it was the post-SA crew that everyone disliked. This is Tails, Knuckles, and Amy.

Two of which are playable in Sonic 3 & Knuckles.

Well, the link would work if this new forum format wasn't so broken to the point where I can post links without HTML code.

 

And like Database said, it will be a branch off series like the comics and the Sonic cartoons before this.

 

Just click the little chain icon, paste your URL in, and *poof* workable link.

 

http://www.sonicstad...he-old-universe

 

As for that I get the feeling it's more like Star Trek's "We're not replacing the old Universe"  merely making everything canon going forward in that style leaving the old Universe to wither and rot with non-canon novels/comics BUT IT'S STILL THERE YOU GUYS!

 

If this turns out to be popular.

 

If not, than they'll likely cycle back to the designs. Personally I'm fine with the new designs but I've never been a Sonic fan so eh.

I think Luigi is the odd man out in that one. I don't think having different jumping/running physics to Mario or being able to run in the air translates to having a lot of upper body strength.

I think that would only work if he was changed so he used the classic hammer/mallet as a signature weapon.

Mario makes sense as the burly one, but that screws up the cast parallels.

http://www.polygon.c...ave-him-a-scarf

 

If the Big Red Button team is led by an "Uncharted and Jak & Daxter veteran", I'm pretty keen.

 

But, uh:

 

"We were exploring different outfits and we went through a lot of iterations and the scarf was something I've used in the past and it works for me and it works for the character. Really, the history of that comes from the old western days, with John Wayne, and as a kid watching a lot of those westerns, that really stuck with me. And you see the use of the afghan in a lot of action movies because of the soldiers and what's happened with more association with the Middle East. So that DNA made its way into what makes a character action hero nowadays."

 

Ooookay.

 

But seriously, I actually love the weird bandaged post-apocalyptic vibe. So.

Not fond of the blue arms on Sonic now. Especially because Amy's are still peach.

Longer limbs on everyone is kinda off putting, but I guess we went through a similar thing in the jump from Genesis to Adventure era games.

Tails and Amy look great, Knuckles only less so (His head doesn't really fit with that body) I'm trying to figure out the scarf on Sonic tho. Robotnik looks alright, but I really dug his Adventure look more, kinda not digging the asymmetricalness of the new outfit.

Animation in the show looks slick tho, very expressive and good keyframing. Unfortunately, the music in the TV show trailer sounds like the worst of 4Kids re-scoring on their bad dubs.

I can't believe not a single person here has heard of athletic tape...

 

M3Hgdmq.jpg

 

Anyway, I'm liking the look of this, for the most part. Knuckles is the most off-putting, but he's growing on me, though I'll be disappointed if he can't glide any more.

 

My original impression was that maybe this was like game Sonic a few years later-- late teens, early 20s, somewhere thereabouts. Apparently not, but oh well.

 

The episode descriptions sound hilarious, and I can't wait to see that stuff.

 

It reminds me of getting a new Mega Man, except there it's usually a whole other entity, rather than the same character with a new look/setting.

 

Animation doesn't look bad to me, but at the same time, I still remember this crime against humanity.

Where are there episode description?

Anyway, on the tape, it's not that I don't get the logic behind it. I'm just not sure it works for me... At least on Sonic. When I think of Sonic, I think of a character who's essentially a living race car. Sharp, curved lines, sleek, solid colors, and stripes and such. That's why the scruffiness and the tape makes him look... Well, threadbare. On his shoes at least, it also looks really random because... What's the point of putting it over your shoes?

To be honest, Tails, Amy, and Eggman are the strongest, design-wise.

"Disabled people dont have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.
