Okay, if it works, please post about your involvement in it.  While it's still...April.

Aw, man, seriously?  Then what did any send in?  Maybe it was those FF II maps...hold on...

I'll fix it right away.  My bad...  >_<

EDIT: It's been fixed.  Sorry about that!  Credit must always go where it's due!

Dammit, Inty, fix it so that anyone can reply to already-created topics on the Maps Of The Month board already!

Though Bumblebee really should be a VW bug, old or new, I guess the Autobots are overall okay.  Not so sure why Bumblebee is so specific...I don't follow car models like most guys, oddly, so I have no idea what a Camaro is, at least not by memory.

I figured Megatron should be a tank, he could at least still kind of resemble his G1 cartoon Megatron form, aside from tank treads.  Or he could be like the G2 comic/toy form which was a tank, just not brightly coloured.  Of course there have been many different forms of Decepticon leaders named Megatron (so is therefore less iconic) and Bay may be out to do his own thing but hopefully the voice and personality scream "Megatron" no matter what he looks like.

I guess it's too early for full confirmation of anything, but at the moment the list isn't consistently decriptive.  What do they mean by "bastard version - Kennywave"?  Why is Scorponok just a "minion", and even if so, can't they just say "scorpion", which was pretty much mentioned outright in the Aint-It-Cool-News report on one animatic sequence?  How is an ambulance not an emergency vehicle, or is this some kind of semantics thing?  Why is a police car a Decepticon?  Why two Decepticon tanks?  If there are to be similar forms they should've had another jet which could've been Thundercracker and/or Skywarp.  And another gripe, wasn't Bonecrusher one of the Constructicons which made up Devastator?  That may be a minor one, even if Devastator is as great as he's always made out to be, but Bonecrusher as a mine-clearing vehicle...what exactly is a mine-clearing vehicle and why is it that?  Are they expecting a lot of land mines in this movie?

The Autobots aren't too bad, like I said, but they have more Decepticons and they've taken more liberty with them.  I certainly hope that I like Starscream and Soundwave, because they have personalities (yes, even "unchrasamatic" Soundwave) that are memorable.

I keep forgetting to get those avatars.  >_<

There will at least be giant transforming robots (though without mass-shifting, I guess no more "giant" than a vehicle "unfolded" and standing upright would be) and those robots will be fighting.  On the big screen.  That alone is awesome.  Because it has the Transformers name attached to it, I don't think it's too much to ask that Optimus be red.  Honestly.
3097  General Boards / Gaming / RE: The Nintendo Wii on: April 28, 2006, 08:00:27 AM
It's only been less than a day now and I'm warming up to the name, if only because I'm tired of all the complaining about it.

And I probably should've spent last night putting up any's Secret Of The Stars maps instead of reading such drivel.  >_<

With only 12 days to E3, I'm excited that I'll get to see what the real fuss should be about...the games and how to play them.  I don't think that'll disappoint.  Smiley

I can accept the fact that they're "more angular" (though with some exceptions, I don't think most of the cartoon characters really were), but I find it odd that there's supposedly not much red on Optimus.

It may be a design idea and far from finalized, but in just about every version of non-Beast Wars Transformers, Optimus Prime has always been mostly red.  It's'd be like if Superman or Spider-Man didn't have red (Man In Black Superman and Symbiote Suit Spider-Man are exceptions for particular times, of course).

"Rev's still fun to play with, even if it's now really Wii."  >_>

"Want to play with my Wii?"

When pronounced with Nintendo, you get "Nintendo Wii", which actually sounds like "Nintendo-E", or if you say "NWii" it sounds like "envy", but with a W.

Very odd.

I can't say I love it, I can still say I prefer the Revolution, but hey - Nintendo's gotten a lot of press today with this controversial title.  And if the Wii is as fun to play as it is embarassing to say, no one will care about the name.

Most people call Nintendo consoles the "Nintendo" anyway.

Though it invites flaming, "PlayStation" sounds really kiddy if you think about it.  "Play station".  A station for play.  Ick.
3101  General Boards / Gaming / RE: Reaction to our April Project on: April 27, 2006, 01:25:11 PM
Odd topic you linked to.  I didn't get the point of it all.  Those posts are weird.

I never heard of "mixing bittages", but seeing as how some Capcom characters like Morrigan are reused game after game, being not that much different between generations, I don't think that's really an argument with any kind of validity.

(I like to use Morrigan in Capcom Vs. SNK 2 EO despite her being the "pixellation queen".)
3102  General Boards / Gaming / RE: The Nintendo Wii on: April 27, 2006, 12:07:17 PM
I made a poll about it (happy, Inty?) about whether or not people here like it.

It's all about the games.  Yeah, the name doesn't give a good first impression to six-year-olds and British people who don't want to say "I'm going to play with my Wii" but it'll be their loss.
3103  General Boards / Gaming / RE: The Nintendo Wii on: April 27, 2006, 10:19:08 AM
If it's on the Nintendo site at all, I'm pretty sure I can't see it until I get home.

I hear the flash animation is pretty cool, though.  Sad

A lot of negativity about the name wherever I can read about it right now...but if their showing at E3 is awesome, it shouldn't matter much in the end.

English: slang for piss, sounds like "whee"/"we".

French: sounds like "yes".

German: sounds like V, Roman for 5 (as in, fifth console)

Weird, someone was talking about the Nintendo V on Revolution Report a couple days ago.  Looks like Revolution Report is going to change their name, too.
3104  General Boards / Gaming / RE: The Nintendo Wii on: April 27, 2006, 10:05:15 AM
I can't access the web page; WebSense blocks most gaming web sites at work.

If it's for real, can you post a screenshot (or a link to a screenshot) of it?

How do you pronounce that, anyway?  "Whee?"  "Why?"

I much prefer "Revolution".

EDIT: Apparently it's pronounced "we".

Revolution Report

I want this fixed ASAP.  I'm probably missing more possible comments about the April Fools' project.  Sad
