  1. Bandai DX VF-31

    Was waiting for the super C. So double checked on HLJ and I'm not seeing the reaction missiles. Or is the DX a different set entirely?
  2. Oh they already bent to Disney's will. Remember that it was shortly after they got a call from Disney that EA suspended the in-game purchases for Battlefront.
  3. Considering the cost of AAA games are close to that of most blockbuster movies... $60 is getting it cheap. Plus you have the cost of running the servers for the multi-player and then topping it with additional costs for continued content. Plus in the case of Battlefront since it's using a licensed property so there is a cut that goes to the IP owner (ie Disney) Honestly I blame GTA:O for most of this. They showed the industry that you can make mad money off of micro-transactions. F2P can work with them, but that is their life-blood. GTA did it as an AAA and made Rockstar a lot of dough.
  4. Closest I've seen are in team shooters, so Overwatch, TF2, and CS:GO. Basically as long as the loot crate is not tied to progression it's not a bad system. The instant progression material is added to the boxes then p2w creeps in, this includes if the boxes can be earned for free but still purchased as well. Only other games I've seen loot boxes not been hated for p2w is DCUO (cosmetic with some progression mats) and STO (progression, cosmetic and gear). But their loot boxes contain alternate progressions, you can still get top tier without opening a single one.
  5. Oh they find ways. Generally if any content is locked behind a pay-wall, with the exception of cosmetics, I here the cries of p2w. Nothing against Wargaming or your spending habit, just seen some of the darker (stupider) side of the community in recent years. I should play a bit more of warship, I enjoyed playing the carriers.
  6. Macross Δ (Delta) Movie Announced

    To get a new Valk in the movie? Yeah long shot, however in the next series that is a more likely place. Would be neat to have it listed as a VF-35 (or YF-35) as a node to the series age and just keep it up for future runs.
  7. Whats Lying on your Workbench MK IV

    Nearing that point myself, been painting 40K heavily since the Konor campaign in the summer. Still on my to-do list before the end of the year is: 1 Tactical squad a full Eldar getting started set (4 bikes and a tank) and a Tau Stormsurge. I'd be done at least one of these if I was distracted by wanting to build and paint a tyranid warrior kill team.... let's not start on what I still have not planned but bought.
  8. Gundam Show Thread - MSG thru IBO

    That or even though they have the rights their too afraid that Youtube's craptastic copyright protection program will tag streamer for infringement even though bandai owns the rights. Remember that three copyright strikes and your channel gets barred and removing a strike is a long process. Best just to err on the side of caution, at least they warned players WHY it's suggested not to stream it.
  9. Uta Macross!

    So had a bad day and tried to relax with some Uta, tried to do a very hard for the lolz and did this on my first run. This game tasks me as I don't know if I'll ever beat this score, but lord knows I'll try.
  10. Ok, so like the old Battlecruiser series. Man that was a fun game, graphics did not age well though.
  11. New Macross TV Series in 2018

    Would be nice to see how NUNS is functioning as an inter-galactic force. Heck if you still want to have it semi-idol centric, let's flush out a story like the one in ep 21 of Delta, ie the early days of front line singers. Let's have Band of Brothers idol style.
  12. New Macross TV Series in 2018

    After trying to re-watch Macross II recently, I'm going to have to try a subbed version as Hibiki's english voice was grating. But it wasn't bad. *grabs a helmet just in case* At least what I can remember of it.
  13. Macross II Soundtrack

    See Seto's post below, seems my search-fu is weak this morning.
