Feb 4th 2011 10:06AM This. So much.
The Sidekick/Exemplar system in CoX was so nice. I had the pleasure of enjoying it from both sides of the coin, rather than rolling up yet another alt.

Looks like fanart. Those are all G1 combiners, of the popular style where four smaller bots could be arms or legs, with one central bot as the center. If you assume the center bot defines what combiner it is, then from left to right it's Defensor (I think), Menasor, Superion and Bruticus. However, arms and legs have been swapped among the combiners, even going across factions (e.g. Superion has legs from Bruticus, an arm from Menasor and an arm from his usual all-jet form). And this could be done with the toys, as well. It's missing Devastator (but he was a different style of combiner using 6 bots that each had an assigned space) and the 5-bot combiners from after "Transformers: The Movie" (i.e. from seasons 3, 4 and any Japanese extensions to G1).
All this from memory. I am such a nerd.
A nerd that would kill for a Transformers MMO.
Jan 28th 2011 3:47PM See, I was wondering about that. I would like to be on a server where people follow the gospel of Bill and Ted, but I worried that I'd get flak for being... well... hetero.
Wait. A place where people generally get along? I don't believe it. Next you'll be telling me your Trade chat doesn't have 'anal' spam and Chuck Norris jokes.

Jan 6th 2011 9:44AM Same here. The Loremaster title, and getting "The Seeker" before it.
Jan 5th 2011 9:58AM It bothers me when a game starts bad-mouthing another game. To me, it feels like when they start insulting someone else, it means they've run out of good things to say about themselves.
I wish them luck, but hope they can stand on their own.

Sarge, you're not sounding a whole lot better. Can't we just admit that different people can find different things fun and leave it at that? I may not enjoy EvE Online, but I can see reasons while some people do.
Don't counter a superiority complex with another superiority complex. It doesn't help anyone.
Dec 13th 2010 4:15PM On-topic: Good for Blizzard! I'm enjoying the new content of the expansion; the new zones are beautiful, the quest layout at lower levels got a much-needed improvement and the new music is amazing!
Off-topic: Holy crap, could posts like this come with a "Warning: Contains Flames" label?

I can't vote you up enough on this one. Playing a game, enjoying it, and bashing it to "save face" seems rather unprofessional for a site about MMOs in general. I mean, I know bashing what's popular is what all the cool kids are doing, but what's the point?
Dec 6th 2010 4:14PM I agree with Chris. When I got my DK to 80 and realized I'm not much of a raider, I just logged off and never logged back in unless I needed his engineering skill.
Most everyone says the Wrath dungeons are too easy... but for a new 80 (like my paladin), they're still relatively hard and require a bit of strategy. Granted not much (save for a couple here and there), but you can't just brute force them all.
Back on-topic. I'm looking forward to a good storyline to sink my teeth into!
