Make his fur a red and black flannel pattern

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:10 PM)

Bonus points if you can work in a red and black flannel pattern on his chest plate.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:09 PM)

Might as well make it cliched. Lumberjack moose male and aristocratic deer female.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2019 - 08:16 PM)

Or their aristocratic deer.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2019 - 08:10 PM)

Thinking of making a pair of moose Transformer OCs, male and female. Thier a lovey dovy pair of lumberjacks

@  Paladin : (18 February 2019 - 06:56 PM)

they also have NOTORIOUSLY poor protection on their servers. do NOT keep a credit card on file there.

@  Telly : (18 February 2019 - 04:48 PM)

i just checked my past tfsource orders, and theres no sales tax charge

@  Arazyr : (18 February 2019 - 11:16 AM)

They haven't (yet, at least) on the stuff I currently have in my Stack. Haven't had them ship anything for a while, though, so I don't know if they will when I do...

@  Benbot : (18 February 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Does TFSource charge sales tax?

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:47 AM)

That's because, once upon a time, the people whom owned the animals weren't the people whom butchered them. So the pig was owned by a saxon who spoke english, but butchered by a french speaker. So a pig got cut up into PORC chops.

Hank Pym<<<< Hank Hill

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 February 2019 - 01:28 AM)

In that case, I don't see anything wrong with English speakers calling it what it is in English. Even though we technically use the French words for what comes out of it. "Beef", "pork"...

@  Bass X0 : (17 February 2019 - 02:04 PM)

I’d like a Siege Thundercracker who has his regular blue colors Cybertronian jet mode which transforms into a robot mode with his Action Master colors. Looks like it could be possible.

@  Paladin : (17 February 2019 - 11:57 AM)

The cow was slaughtered in the abattoir.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 February 2019 - 08:53 AM)

It's not a pretty name: abattoir is literally just the french word for slaughterhouse.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 February 2019 - 08:46 AM)

Giving it a pretty name won't make it a pretty place.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 February 2019 - 02:45 AM)

I do believe there is an aphorism about the U.S.A. and yogurt being different because after 200 years the latter will have a culture.

@  Maruten : (16 February 2019 - 11:30 PM)

There's another word for "abattoir"?! Honestly you people, "slaughterhouse" is a bit on the nose.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 February 2019 - 10:09 PM)

I learned this week that the French-style term abattoir is prevalent in the UK/Commonwealth in place of where U.S.-American Anglophones would say "slaughterhouse". Fascinating.

@  MEDdMI : (16 February 2019 - 08:51 PM)

Nonsense. Everybody loves all my posts.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (16 February 2019 - 08:27 PM)

Oh, that makes more sense.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 February 2019 - 07:31 AM)

Haven't given it to him yet. Not sure when I will, but soon. Wah Wah is what he calls any vehicle with a siren, and the little bugger just LOVES firetrucks. So I got him a rescue bot heatwave.

@  repowers : (16 February 2019 - 02:41 AM)

I hope he said "You've given me a wah-wah"

@  Dekafox : (16 February 2019 - 12:48 AM)

Or you could come to canada, where bureaucracy is a publically funded art form! So garbage and used condoms trying to make a statement about something or other, not entirely sure what.

@  Nevermore : (14 February 2019 - 06:10 AM)

We've turned it into an art form.

@  Nevermore : (14 February 2019 - 06:10 AM)

Is Verbesserschlimmerung a change that was intented to make things worse but made them better instead?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 February 2019 - 07:35 AM)

We have a similar word in english "government".

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:05 AM)

The meaning of this word is: A change that was intended as an improvement but ended up making things worse.

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:04 AM)

It's a portmanteau of "Verbesserung", which means "improvement", and "Verschlimmerung", which means "worsening".

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:04 AM)

Your new German word for today: Verschlimmbesserung.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:17 PM)

Fortunately it's been long enough now that the possibility exists another label like Shout Factory or Arrow could pick it up and give it an updated release.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:16 PM)

It's the same with their Dawn of the Dead blu-ray, and several others

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:11 PM)

In Volcano's case it isn't so much a case just of amazon or eBay sellers... it looks like rather than releasing it directly, Fox licensed it out to Starz/Anchor Bay, and it's subsequently gone out of print

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 February 2019 - 01:28 PM)

There's Amazon sellers for you.

@  Telly : (12 February 2019 - 12:49 PM)

thought about buying volcano on bluray last night, until i saw the price on amazon: $135. the used ones arent much cheaper at $90. i know the 3p sellers can set any price they want, but come on. $90-$135 for a 20 year old movie that was only so-so?

@  unluckiness : (12 February 2019 - 05:12 AM)

GOt my hopes up there for a bit. Last I heard it was nebulously in 2019.

Some criteria and recommendations for game nominations:

  •  
  • Games eligible for nomination must have a multiplayer component (co-op or competitive) of 4 players or more on the same side. 
  •  
  • Games need to operate on an accessible multiplayer service such as Xbox Live, PSN, Steam, Origin, Uplay, Battlenet, etc. 
  •  
  • No, the game your cousin Bob has been developing in his garage which requires you to run multiple frameworks, have intimate knowledge of compiling in C#, and a very shady download method is not eligible. 
  •  
  • Please try to keep in mind that not everyone has a giant money bin to go swimming in, nominating games often found on sale or at reduced prices on sites such as www.greenmangaming.com or eb games will go a long way towards group adoption than the latest Battlefield or CoD games with all of their DLC will. 
  •  
  • Multiplatform available games will likely have a higher chance of making it past the nomination round as they won't be as dependent upon the platform vote. 
  •  
  • F2P games are allowed, but let's try to find something that doesn't require most of us to invest 200+ hours of grinding to level up to what you just paid a $5 microtransaction for. 
  •  
  • MMO's... I'm going to leave this open and see where the nominations go. Maybe a sub-group depending on the game and requirements (f2p vs freemium vs pay to play), and keep in mind that you may end up herding n00bz with your level 80 Mage. 
  •  
  • No social media games! Anyone who starts asking me for coins or to like their facebook farm or whatnot will begin receiving very questionable content delivered through various untraceable means. You will not be able to unsee this, you will not be able to prove it is from me, friends and family will begin to seriously question your interests. This is your only warning.
  •  
  • Try to avoid nominating DLC over core games, yes it's a common part of the industry but it still sucks when you have to buy a game and then immediately pay again for the DLC just to be able to play with friends before you ever get to play the main game. 
  •  
  • Remember that we're all here to have fun, nominating a game with the intent of griefing or lording over everyone with your maxed out characters, specs, or in depth knowledge will get old real quick for you and everyone else. I will be working on some basic group gaming rules and etiquette over the next week that everyone will be expected to follow. Nothing too severe, stuff along the lines of no racial slurs or hate speech over open comms, no over aggression, no nude session streaming unless you're hot enough that we all want to see it...
  •  
  • Also, lets try to avoid nominating games that are potentially too objectionable or disturbing, I'm not trying to be a nanny here but nothing with any graphical sex scenes or major nudity (the threesome sex scene in God of War comes to mind). 
  •  

 

When nominating a game, please try to include the following:

 

Game name

Type (First person shooter, real time strategy, RPG, racing, bed wetting simulation, etc)

Description/Reasons for nomination

Platforms available

Content requirements (DLC, Online pass, pay to play, etc)

Any additional links to game information sites, sites to buy the game digital or physical, or sales.

 

 

I'll start by suggesting Awesomenauts. It just had an expansion that introduces several new characters into the game, and is constantly being improved by the development team.

 

Awesomenauts is a Platform/MOBA, is quick and easy to get into, is available on Steam, PS3, Xbox Live and PS4, with the most support being on Steam.

 

Some content is currently locked behind an expansion (Starstorm) but not a ton, and nothing that should impact the ability to play the game.

 

(Edited to make it a long term thread)

Dibs on Xero's boots.....

 

Well.. Also a suggestion. 

 

Team Fortress 2.

 

Its old enough to run on most computers most days, there is no DLC needed, and finally it's free.

 

It is an FPS

 

I'll just leave the link here:  http://www.teamfortress.com/

Unfortunately it seems to have rather died on the vine. As such I'm going to switch my vote to TF2, making it 2 votes for TF2.

 

I don't know if there's much interest at the moment to play, but we should at least attempt a game at some point.

There is Warframe. It's in open beta(even though it has a fully online store), and its free unless you want to buy upgrades. I was just shown it this past weekend, and it seems to be a pretty fun little game. It plays a lot like Mass Effect 3's multiplayer, but with a lot more upgrade options.

Its a neat rip off of Mass Effect 3's Multiplayer, which is a pretty good game to rip off. Also, being a free game really helps it too.

Yeah, Leveling up the weapons seems to be an issue. However, the Mods that you use are supposed to be just as important as the weapon itself.

Okay, having just com eback from parts unknown and places I'd rather not think about, I'd like to nominate:

 

Terraria

Open-World Sandbox - Single and Multiplayer

This is a game I've sunk MANY hours into it across multiple platforms. There's just so much to do and make and build. At this point, it's displaced Minecraft as my go-to game.

PC, XB360, PS3, Android, iOS (Coming soon: XBOne, PS4)

It's all in there!

Steam, iTunes, XBox 360, PS3

 

EDIT: Cuz, edit.

Actually, you can host a server on your comp/console with up to 8 players right from the main menu. I know the Steam version comes with server software. I actually run one for me and my daughters to dig around on.
