Re: [The video game thread]

If it helps, Witcher 2 doesn't have very large maps. It's on the buggy side with some of the missions and the hit boxes are on the wonky side; however, the maps aren't very large.

Re: TOY REVIEW CLAIMS THREAD

Apologies for the double post, but just so I have a fun project to work on, would anyone object if started with Master Race SDT-03 Apollo? As Clay put it, he's the chonky, little Omega Supreme.

...grocery run, and the amount of people not wearing masks, wearing them improperly, or just vapidly idling in choke points making it impossible to get around them without getting close honestly made me boil. This. All of this is what I usually experience during my grocery runs. The last point of f...

Re: POST YOUR NEWEST ACQUISITIONS!

What is the little chonky Omega next to him? That is a Master Made SDT-03 Mega Series Apollo. It also comes with a SDT-02 tiny figurine of "Optimus Prime". At least, if I'm reading the box correctly, that's what it says. Here's a link for better photographs. https://tfsource.com/master-made/sdt-03-...

Re: Hello, it's been almost 10 years.

Fortunately (unlike the end of my time here) I now have an amazing partner who is encouraging and understanding in my aims and ambitions (unfortunately the pandemic kinda put a dent in that!) I'm just happy you have a partner despite the pandemic. I've had no such luck. Have a couple decent dating ...

Re: TOY REVIEW CLAIMS THREAD

And I totally missed those posts until SCSW quoted them because Photobucket is being finicky with displaying my pictures. I'd like to see 3P reviews. Do you have multiple figures of the same character so you could do a compare/contrast? Oh yes! From most to least: Trailbreaker, Gears, Sunstreaker, O...

Re: TOY REVIEW CLAIMS THREAD

I would encourage it if you're willing :glance: I have a closet full of 3rd-party figures. Are there any requests? https://img.photobucket.com/albums/v357/RagingCalm/My%20Collection/My%20Collection%202020/0719201904.jpg https://img.photobucket.com/albums/v357/RagingCalm/My%20Collection/My%20Collect...

Re: Hello, it's been almost 10 years.

I found myself in a not entirely dis-similar position myself at the end of last year and took that "leap" into the unknown so I can empathise with you there. I hope you're doing well. It's a damn hard thing to do or so I've found. It takes a lot of courage since it's kind of like facing the unknown...

Re: TOY REVIEW CLAIMS THREAD

Is there a need or want for 3rd party toy reviews? Over half of my collection consists of 3rd party, so I was wondering if I could be of service.

Hey SCSW! Yes, it did take a leap of...I'm not sure I'd say faith, more like aversion to desperation, depression, and thoughts I'd rather not think about. I only knew that I couldn't stay in an industry that I knew was helping in tearing the environment up and helps in promoting imperialism. I got l...

Re: Hello, it's been almost 10 years.

Hi, Warcry and thanks. I think my life makes more sense now. At least as far as my job goes. I went from working for the oil refining industry, which directly conflicted with my personal beliefs to working in the mass baking industry where at least I design machines that help feed people. There were...

Hello, it's been almost 10 years.

Hello. How's everyone doing? I was just working on re-arranging my Transformers collection and discovered that I still do love the franchise. It also flashed through my mind that I just disappeared from this site while going through a personally tumultuous time in my life. I was a moderator for the ...

Re: [The video game thread]

I love good, old games and I think I found a bargain. Recently, for just over $3, I got the Witcher 2 for Xbox360 and I've been enjoying the hell out of it. I think I'm going through my 3rd playthrough, now and I still don't think I've explored all the options in the story.

My latest acquisition would be Siege Jetfire and I've grown quite fond of him. In the photo, he's underneath the giant, 3rd party "Omega Supreme".

Hello, it's been quite a while. Almost 10 years since my last post. I'm still in Pennsylvania, specifically Pennsyltucky, and personally, I'm taking the COVID virus very seriously. I've restricted places I travel to and I always wear a mask and carry hand sanitizer. I've found that I have changed qu...

Thanks, Notty. Where have I been? Working. I'm a contractor and technically, I'm only supposed to work 40 hours a week; however, I have to bring my computer home every night from work and sort emails for the projects that I'm working just to keep them straight in my head. The job is better than unem...

Latest acquisitions for me is the Ghostbusters game for PC and Transformers: War for Cybertron for PC. Both are solid games and loads of fun. I also put down my payment for Starcraft II and Civilization V.
