    General Media Thoughts On The Transformers IP?

    Oh, trust me I've seen plenty of Generation One, I actually have a DVD with a bunch of episodes on there which I've owned for quite a few years now, It's easily my favourite iteration of the bunch although it has It's flaws. Plus, as crappy of some of those movie licensed games that my friend owned were, they did at least have some unlockable G1 episodes which were a really good time.

    General Media Thoughts On The Transformers IP?

    Yeah, I've seen it around, It's pretty easy to find, I just gotta scrape together the money for it is all. I personally think even the original show's animation is still just as great as it was back then but that's just a matter of opinion.

    General Media Thoughts On The Transformers IP?

    Thanks for the consideration, much appreciated. On the subject of ratings though, I wouldn't really know how old those would suggest, or what they'd convert to considering my country doesn't have ratings for cartoons at all, as a result of that shows are constantly censored here in a desperate bid to keep all cartoons appealing to kids of all ages, It's kind of sad. Oh, sorry, I got off topic again.

    General Media Thoughts On The Transformers IP?

    Did... Did I READ that correctly? A DOZEN characters? TEN MINUTES in? And considering these special guidelines with TV shows I have to wonder how Hasbro gets around those now, as I hear Transformers Prime featured a surprising amount of onscreen death. And you know what, I can live with them killing off a few characters for dramatic effect, yeah it sucks, but sometimes killing off a character is a good way to show the impact of the situation, but that only really has that effect when characters people actually like are killed. I can't believe I'm actually saying this but maybe if they toned do

    General Media Thoughts On The Transformers IP?

    Again, I simply don't agree with them doing that considering they can just create new characters and buildings and such, put them in the show, sell their toys and that's it. But companies are companies and companies will never change as much as some would like. I always thought Transformers was aimed at a young audience anyway. It's like if someone gave their kid a brown teddy bear, then a few decades later they had another kid and bought them a teddy bear except now It's blue or something. They like the blue bear but that doesn't mean they wouldn't like the brown bear. People seem to have thi

    General Media Thoughts On The Transformers IP?

    Wow, for once I actually feel bad for Hasbro. I totally get the rage though, don't get me wrong. I remember situations where they killed off main characters in some of my favourite shows, and that royally pissed me off. And on the reboot situation, this still continues to make me wonder why most cartoons can't just stick to one iteration before scrapping it all away for another show, It's irritating, and I find It's ALWAYS the kids cartoons. Family Guy is still going and people still love it, South Park is still going and people still love it, why the hell do kids cartoon creators, especially

    General Media Thoughts On The Transformers IP?

    I always thought it would make more sense to have Transformers in a futuristic settings, the giant transforming cars with laser weapons SEEM to fit in better in that kind of place that on modern Earth in all fairness. If Transformers gets rebooted again (and it probably WILL be) I have much more interest in Cybertron than Earth, so It'll never happen probably but I wanna see more of Cybertron or some kind of origin type series set entirely on there before it was destroyed.

    Unwarranted stupid character deaths? Check... Unexpected cursing occasion? Check... The Touch? Check... (No-one mentioned that, but I have a real fondness for the song, had no idea it was from a TF movie til recently) I need to see this movie!

    General Media Thoughts On The Transformers IP?

    Wow, talk about a case of fictional death drama. And here I was thinking Hasbro were too kid friendly and stuff to even consider killing off characters in their shows. You talked mainly about the movies is where you seemed to have your problems, so maybe It's just the movies that need a reboot, but I don't feel like that would really do much. I don't think rebooting the IP would sort any problems you have either, in fact it has been. Multiple times. Counting every cartoon I've heard about in this thread plus the other ones I remember, possibly more too, we have Beast Wars, Animated, 2 diffe

    General Media Thoughts On The Transformers IP?

    I don't see how there could be controversy there but OK, I'll roll with it. That all sounds pretty neat. But that is the stupidest way to bring back a character possible. I mean, I get them bringing him back, he's an icon to the Transformers brand, and I'm not very fluent in TF lore as you know by now, but if it is as you say and they literally resurrected his character without ANY indication or reasoning for his survival, that's pretty damn dumb.
  11. OmegaBeamOfficial

    General Media Thoughts On The Transformers IP?

    Well, that is understandable. He is pretty much one of the biggest icons of the brand, if you've heard of Transformers, you've probably at least heard Prime's name. Oh christ... I feel like there's enough lore there to fill the first chapter of a Transformers Historia or something... but that's a fair point on the humans part.

    General Media Thoughts On The Transformers IP?

    Regarding the second paragraph I could totally agree with you. Transformers to me, was clearly designed to be an IP about watching giant robots beat the ever living crap out of each other in a battle to defend/ruin the planet and gain more power/stop them from gaining power etc. The humans were never really a problem for me in G1, maybe I'm just lucky and haven't seen the more human oriented episodes or something, but in the movies? Oh god... It's seriously to the point where I think maybe sometimes the humans get more screen time than what we actually wanted to see. Not that having them there

    General Media Thoughts On The Transformers IP?

    Well, sorry if I offended you over that or something, but thanks for informing me I guess. I suppose maybe It's just me being an idiot, or maybe the reason I wasn't aware of the IP's success is because I don't live in It's country of origin, but that aside, I always thought the films were meant to appeal to an older audience than the cartoons, because hey, if I can't understand what's going on how the hell's a little kid going to, plus the occasions of crude humour, cursing and the like. You sound like you know what you're talking about more than I do, so I'm not gonna fight it. Much respect t

    General Media Thoughts On The Transformers IP?

    Wow, talk about dark and meta... I never thought the movies were the worst things ever made of course (Apart from the second one, offensive characters and crude humour, only not the good kind, the completely distasteful kind? No thanks...) but it feels like they REALLY aren't as good as they could be. And you know what's sad? I've seen the machine working on people. I said before that I didn't know that many people who really idolises the franchise, but I remember seeing the 4th movie in theatres with one of my relatives (we go to see movies every so often, It's a bit of a tradition.) and he c

    General Media Thoughts On The Transformers IP?

    I've seen a heck of a lot of G1 which is my favourite of the bunch, I only saw a small portion of Animated when I was just a tyke so I can't really say much about it, and Prime is my second favourite series. As for the others you mentioned, I haven't seen them but I also believe there was an anime style one just subtitled Robots In Disguise that I thought was rather good. I ain't seen the old old movie, I didn't even know there was a cartoon movie until recently. As for the video games? Pal, you read my mind, those 3 games were the games I was thinking about in the first post. Wow, those ar
  16. So to start off on a side note, god damn It's been a long time since I've been active on these forums, glad I finally have something new to talk about, things were getting boring. So, I'm bringing this up because I saw the special Super Bowl Transformers ad thing for the 5th movie, and it left me both excited and rolling my eyes at the same time. Just to quickly gloss over this, my view of the live action movies are pretty meh. The first one's the best, second one's the worst, third and fourth were better but still not as good as the first one, that's all I'll say in detail about the movies ri
  17. "Oh, um, hello there... Things are fine here. Twilight's been a shut in all week recently though, I'm honestly kind of worried about her. AJ and Rainbow are arguing as usual, It's not very nice but we've come to expect it by now, Pinkie's... Being Pinkie, I guess. Rarity's been a little busy trying to further branch out with her fashion career, and Spike... Actually, I'm not sure about Spike, we don't talk often."
  18. I wouldn't say It's lost quality over the years, It's a rather rocky road for me. Season 1 wasn't anything spectacular, of course it used to be to me because that was the season that got me into the show in the first place, but Season 2 really doubled the awesomeness. Season 3 wasn't as good as Season 2, but it was still a fair attempt nonetheless, with a well executed finale. Season 4, yes! That is to date my favourite Season of the bunch, heck, it deserves that praise just for the finale ALONE, but Season 4 had a lot more hits than misses. Season 5 & 6 are a mixed bag, the majority of th
  19. Pepperoni, LOTS of cheese, cooked well but not burnt, maybe throw some meat on there, more pepperoni, more cheese, but NO PEPPERS! God help them if I find peppers... Oh, yeah, almost forgot, make it deep pan...
  20. I don't like to resort to grinding in any game where It's possible because I think It'd be boring. Playing the Platinum Demo I've started to get a better feeling for the game, and technically what Discordian's saying is right, learning from mistakes is a big part of it. But I gotta admit Twilight Dirac kind of has a point as well, maybe It's not always that way with Final Fantasy, but a lot of RPG games are known for making you go through tedious grinding spree's just so that you can get past the next area. I have a friend who owns the 10th game who's told me that.
  21. That's all really helpful, thanks. How expensive are all these different potions and elixirs? Speaking of fishing, that reminds me, are the different "hobby" skills as I like to call them actually important to the gameplay, or are they just there? I've actually found it now on YT, but thanks anyway. And I don't mind, I prefer subbed to dubbed anyway. Are there multi language options in the main game? Sounds interesting, I guess I'll have to wait and see until I play it. Yeah, I'd imagine they designed it like that so players can quickly get to any
  22. That sounds neat and all, but could you elaborate more on how these markers function? Is it like when you get close to the treasures and side quests the markers will be revealed on the map, or are there other methods to obtain these locations? The combat sounds simple and fine, I'm sure I'll get used to it. Organising my team to have the best weapons and abilities for battle is probably going to be top priority for me, as I'm sure the enemies will only get tougher as the game progresses. So, basically like how the skill tree in Borderlands games works? Do you earn the skill points thro
  23. I never really had much interest in the RPG side of games as a genre until very recently, I have played some in my lifetime but I always remember sucking at them (Well, apart from Pokemon if that counts) so I tended to avoid them, but with Final Fantasy XV coming out recently, I saw some trailers, reviews and gameplay and I think it looks like something I could really get into if I put in the effort, but I'm worried I'll suck hard at it and it won't be as fun as It's supposed to be, It's my first Final Fantasy so I don't really know the story of the older games, and I'm aware this one uses rea
  24. I suppose It's better than nothing, but it still doesn't make it hurt any less. And to be honest... Final Fantasy's older releases have been ported to both newer Nintendo and Sony systems, I believe Nintendo has up to 6 and Sony has both that and all the rest after they switched to Sony. Plus Nintendo got to use Cloud in Smash, so I'd say both companies are at least giving us something FF related. That's a tactic I might end up trying next generation, it saves a lot of hassle of having to choose which console you want because of all the stuff you miss out on.
  25. Well, I wouldn't say It's totally abandoned anyway. Those Japanese games are getting English releases at least, the Attack On Titan game and Hatsune Miku Project Diva X being good recent examples, though I wish they would get games out from other areas.
