    Actually, you can do it entirely on your PC as long as you have enough free space on your internal storage to accommodate it. I did it that way and everything went as smoothly as it could have.

    I could picture a publicity stunt with them starting a controlled fire and having reports of a set burning down with the animatronics inside and then having said animatronics unexpectedly show up somewhere some days later. Since they're using real models there's some great potential to creep people out outside the film itself.

    Just to check since I've already lost track of all the new stuff this time around. What is the "Character Sale" actually meant to be? Does that refer to a discount to the current purchasable characters or is this something to do with more characters being added for sale, perhaps even past event ones likes Classic?

    Hang on, so roughly a year of console exclusivity? 
    Oh it's is going to be really fun trying to avoid the spoilers for this for that length of time.
  5. LiamTheAnimator added a post in a topic Rocket League (PS4 & PC)   

    I've been playing this since it showed up on PS+. This is definitely one of my favourite games on PS4 and probably my favourite for this year thus far. LEGO Dimensions and No Man's Sky (?) will likely take it's place on the chart but I can't say I'll be moving away from this any time soon.
    I've been looking for a "party" game for me and my friends to play online. Something simple that we can drop in and out of whenever. This game more than fits the bill and always provides a laugh when we play. 
    The balancing is absolutely fantastic. So much customisation yet none of it gives you any actual advantage over someone who's literally just started out. 
    This absolutely must be made part of SSMB Game Nights in the future. Smash Bros and MK8 are the current favourites and I can confidently say this will rank alongside them. Assuming the specs for this aren't ridiculous I'll have no issues double dipping for a PC copy.

    So it looks like there's been further emphasis on this whole thing.

    They do seem to be putting a fair bit of focus on this new-found initiative. Hopefully they've got the plan needed to justify it. TGS should be interesting.

    If there's one thing I liked in this it's Sonic's personality. To me, when he "retires" he acts like a toned down OVA Sonic. He's still a good guy but in a more passive way and is somewhat snarky even if it isn't entirely called for. I wouldn't actually mind if Boom Sonic was more like this normally. I do like that they tried to distinguish him from SEGA Sonic by having him be more sarcastic and relaxed but I found today's take on him far more interesting.
  8. LiamTheAnimator added a post in a topic Sonic Runners (iOS/Android) - Thread Version 2.0   

    The problem is you can't pay to get characters. You can pay to get a chance at getting a character. Games like Sonic Dash are also Free to Play but at the very least give you the option to get what you want, when you want. Many won't want to pay but at least the option's there.
    In Runners, someone can get lucky and get a character without paying. Meanwhile someone else could spend a huge sum on money and walk away empty handed. Many missed out on Classic Sonic because of this and it'll happen for all the characters for as long as they keep things like this. The regular addition of new characters is a non-event if many people will never actually get their hands on them.

  10. LiamTheAnimator added a post in a topic The SSMB Community Game Night (Every Saturday at 7:30 EST/12:30 GMT) - MK 8 Tourney Trailer and How to play with SSMB 101 Released!   

    Is there any update on when things are starting up? Just wanting to make sure I've not missed anything.
  11. LiamTheAnimator added a post in a topic Welcome To Your New-Look SSMB!   


    No no, to be fair. Many of us have been used to the old SSMB for several years now. Any change, however slight, was always going to be noticed. A change this big is therefore going to take some getting used to.
    The improvements made such as the removal of the star rating and the expanded status updates are brilliant and get the thumbs-up from me.
    As I'm typing this, I notice the tools in the text box have changed as well. I'm really liking this simplified version, I think a lot of the tools on the old one went greatly unused and only made the interface more cluttered. It's a really nice setup now and I like that the top toolbar is purely for the text while our image function gets it's own button at the bottom.
    Like other members have brought up, the main issue is the amount of white that currently fills the screen. We've already been assured it's a temporary issue due to the WIP nature of the new forum. The only way it's causing trouble for me personally is that it makes it more difficult to tell where one user's post ends and another begins.
    In a similar issue, many buttons are now a light grey colour. These make it look like the buttons are greyed out and can't be used which could get confusing for some people. Again, probably temporary but I figured I'd mention it anyway.
    Aside from one or two little niggles I think the 2015 boards are a great redesign. I personally thought the old version still served its purpose just fine but if a change was deemed necessary then this is a nice replacement. Other than the friend list, everything people want from the old boards are either here now or will be in due time so there's not much to complain about on that front. Shame about the banners being gone but hey, what can you do?
    Well done to all the staff that have been working on this. One can only imagine the workload there's been to pull off a migration like this.

    Just dropping in to signpost a fix to one of my questions. I've removed some of the text from my initial answer to properly fit the question.
     
    Anyway, that's it from me. Back to getting excited about Doctor Who announcements!
     
  13. LiamTheAnimator added a post in a topic Doctor Who   

    Well this certainly has been the Day of the Doctor!
     
    ...
     
    I'm sorry. I'm so sorry. I didn't even mean that second one I swear.
     
    Anyways, many of you will have seen all the new Lego Dimensions info that's been circulating of the past few hours butt looks like Doctor Who isn't done yet!
     

     
    The Doctor Who Facebook has advised fans that something special is coming our way and to check the page around 10.30 PM British time tonight. 
     
    Now, given the whole timey wimey mess that is time zones, I'd hazard a guess that the Doctor Who panel at Comic Con will be going on at that time.
     
    Could this be a trailer debut for Series 9?
  14. LiamTheAnimator added a post in a topic The LEGO Dimensions topic   

    Just reading through that article:
     
    "Depending on which Doctor you play as, the interior of your TARDIS will change -- playing as the first Doctor will give you an old-school, black-and-white time machine."
     
    Oh now that really is cool! This along with the regenerating Doctor actually offers a bit more challenge for the player. Usually, death in LEGO games is a non-event. Here though, many will have a favourite Doctor and TARDIS so they'll have to play more carefully in order to avoid regeneration. I imagine you can just repeatedly kill yourself to get him back but, of course, people aren't going to want to have to do that.
     
    From what I understand, all the franchises we've seen are in the core starter pack but in order to play as the characters or expand their universe you need the character pack. Fair enough. I still don't like the prices but at this point I can't sit here pretending like I'm not going to buy it.
     
    EDIT: A video on the official Youtube Channel has given us a look at a couple of the interiors. Oh man these are the real deal:
     



     
    No sign of the 9th/10th TARDIS yet (curses) but no doubt it'll turn up eventually.
     
    Here's the video for those that want a look:
     

     
    Turns out the TARDIS is free to use whenever. Someone can wander in the level while you jump in the TARDIS and then begin piloting it through the level. 
     
    Oh, and you can ride Daleks. Just in case you weren't on board yet.
  15. LiamTheAnimator added a post in a topic The "What the HECK Is A 2016 Sonic" Prophecy Thread (two topics from the pre-server wipe in one!)   

    I think that might do the complete opposite actually. At least, initially. They say they're now committed to quality over deadlines but then announce that their next game is merely two months away. That's going to send alarm bells ringing for a lot of people. 
     
    Now, I'm sure the game would have had at least the usual amount of development time but a move like this is risky.
     
    Having said that though, I wouldn't be against them pulling another SEGA Saturn style announcement and actually succeeding this time. 
     
    Showing off the next game in September would be a nice comfort to fans who are less than pleased about Boom 2 or M&S 2016. It'd be a good way of indicating that something for long-time fans is in the works, they're putting their all into it and we'll hear more next year.
