Re: Site content and community revitalization project

I dunno, it feels like almost everyone has everything necessary. A camera and mic are built into every smartphone, tablet or laptop these days, and Zoom runs on all of those things. For Twitch I think you have to configure some free software so people can text you live on-screen. I know its not real...

Re: Site content and community revitalization project

Great, because its been kinda sad these last couple of years watching the message boards consolidate down to a few chief forums. And then viewing page one of a forum, scrolling down a bit & seeing topics last posted a year ago... felt like it was teetering on the precipice a bit. I really dig the in...

Re: Site content and community revitalization project

Imagine having modern updates of stuff that's already on the archive: - Members doing videos of their collections - Sir Auros used to do TF video game reviews, now they could be Twitched and Youtubed. I know there's millions of these videos already out there, but not with the background depth and kn...

Re: Site content and community revitalization project

Really cool idea. I feel like Youtube, Twitch and podcasts lead the way these days. People want to see stuff, and I feel like a message board is very pre-broadband old hat. I'd love to see Archive certified/owned Youtube videos backed up with a live Twitch stream that maybe follows a regular broadca...

Re: [The video game thread]

I bought an X-Box 360E (never owned one before) and have been having fun with several prominent X-Box games like Halo 3, Gears 1, Blur, Fable II, Fallout 3, ODST, Skyrim, Pac Man DX+, L.A. Noire etc. Its a good time financially to get into the 360 as all the games are only £1 in thrift stores and se...

Re: Requiem of the Wreckers...where can I get it??

Hey Prowl, did you enjoy Requiem of the Wreckers? It took me a while and I was rather nonplussed, especially after Last Stand of the Wreckers which felt like being hit with a club hammer, but I have eventually come to kind of love Requiem. Sins I still don't have too much care for, but I think I'll ...

Re: Power Of The Primes Hun-Gurrr

After reading the description the first thing that came to mind when looking at the robot mode was Neil from The Young Ones. Hun-Gurr's got Neils student legs with Mike the cool person's head and shades (only in lurid purple). If only he came with an acoustic guitar accessory he could do 'Hole in my...

Re: Thank you

:) I never knew people gave a flying fig about Transformers in the late 90's until I went on the Information Superhighway and found this place (probably through AltaVista, Netscape or Lycos).

Re: What TV shows are you watching thread.

Yeah, I know what you mean. Its a bit like when you go back and watch old episodes of X-Files or really bad episodes of TNG and I'd wonder how anyone could've watched this... I also bought the new season of Twin Peaks made in 2017, maybe it'll fix my feelings about the old-fashionedness. At the mome...

Re: What TV shows are you watching thread.

Twin Peaks (the original series). Its okay, I don't get why its heralded as one of the best things on TV ever, it's so flaky and dumb in places, with wooden acting from certain people. I feel like it's aged badly, and it commits that cardinal sin where a character orders food in a diner and then wa...

Re: Was Ten alive?

I’ll have to go back and check, I think there was a line said by Tyrest to Getaway that the legislators were made from the melted down bodies of Circle of Light members. I might be totally wrong on that, but if I’m not it still feels rather a half-assed way to give Ten sentience alongside a bit of S...

Re: So I'm pretty much out of the fandom at this point

Oh yeah, but the comics were on tap, served up weekly by the Newsagent when we were kids (in the UK). Trying to catch any of the cartoons was like gold dust; we used to get them portioned into five minute clips on TV and then only during a school holiday. I still remember the time I recorded every f...

Was Ten alive?

Did James Roberts ever give a definitive explanation about Ten’s sentience? I’ve read the TF Wiki page on Ten but it doesn’t say anything helpful. I don't believe Swerve was able to create life from nothing when he reconfigured Ten as a doorman & I was content that a proper explanation would come ev...

Re: Latest DVD Purchases

A while ago I was reading a page online called ‘Great films you might have missed’, and near the top was ‘Pay It Forward’ with Kevin Spacey, Helen Hunt and the kid from The Sixth Sense. “No really” the article proclaimed: “... its a massively underrated film with a genuinely interesting premise”.

Re: Latest Music Purchases.

Metallica ‘The Black Album’ (1991) Apart from the hits like Enter Sandman and Nothing Else Matters this did nothing for me, and I was really surprised because it was everywhere and is a classic album, but it feels so schoolboyish. Lots of ranting about things that don’t need to be ranted about. I l...

Re: So I'm pretty much out of the fandom at this point

I’m the same as Zigzagger and Skyquake; I adored MTMTE and felt sad when the James Roberts material was drawn to a close. I particularly loved the banter here when a new issue came out and we’d try and guess the motivations behind the characters and where the plot-lines would go. I still love going ...

Re: A question about Kup in the All Hail Megatron Coda.

No sooner have I asked than I found the answer at TFWiki. The answer was in the story I was reading, I was just too dumb to figure it out. Here’s the blurb from the wiki: ... (Kup) also had some programming routines installed via Prowl to help lead the Autobots into winning the war: now he could be ...

A question about Kup in the All Hail Megatron Coda.

I was reading ‘Everything in its Right Place’ in the All Hail Megatron coda. Its the one that opens with Springer smacking Prowl around demanding to know about Kup. It’s a brilliant story, but towards the end Prowl mentions about planting particular algorithms in Kup’s brain. What was that? I don’t ...
