    I wouldn't exactly say Jagex is a no name company.
    Runescape has been around for about 10 years and has been fairly popular.

    Runescape is a java based, normally in-browser*(although I think you can download an application) game, with an isometric-y view and Diabloish control style.
    Still, I like it, despite some of the preconceptions people have about it, and it is the only MMO that I feel safe playing without getting too sucked in.

    I like how they handle quests. Most have actual story and there are few fetch quests
    It is classless and raceless which I'm sure some people don't like, but I do because I like doing as much as I can with one character.

    Jagex claims Runescape is not aimed specifically at kids, but I don't know if Hasbro would want that attitude with a Prime MMO.

    A curious thing is that until recently Jagex was working on a MMO called "Mechscape", but they dropped it.(Although they are now working on another non-mech based sci-fi MMO) I wonder if that has anything to do with their deal with Hasbro.

    *Just because it is in-browser doesn't mean it is shallow. There are hundreds of hours of quests and what not. Not sure what the state of PVP is at the moment though. I normally ignore that.(Along with most other players)

    I know I said that Robotkingdom's shipping was really good in this ep, but when I checked it after the recording was over....well, not sure what changed, but it's crazy high for this set; way more expensive than the last time I ordered from them. Sorry if I got anyone's hopes up. :(

    Most of the movie games were crap?

    Sorry, but I will defend the 360 and PS3 versions of RotF for the rest of my life.

    That game was pretty good. Not perfect, but not bad.

    You can defend them, that's fine. But remember that it's an opinion most do not share. So defend away.

    Multiplayer was decent. The campaign was still sub-par. Compared to WfC, the flaws in RotF are much more apparent.

    I liked the DS 1st Movie Games.

    Also, Grimstone is a styracosaurus. The limbs are a dimetrodon, a parasaurolophus, a pachycephalosaurus (Not sure if I spelled that right.) and an ankylosaurus.

    Oddly enough, the exact limb and torso components (in terms of species used and them being used as Torso/Limbs specifically) was also used in Tokusatsu previously with MaxRyuuOh (from Abaranger.)

    Yeah, I remember Styracosaurus now. I remembered dimetrodon and ankylosaurus with a little effort. Hilariously, dimetrodon is closer to a mammal than a reptile, apparently, and didn't even live in the same era.

    Oh, and I'll one-up Vangelus. I've got three RtS Scourge with a United and E-Hobby on the way.

    I never knew that the first version of BM Thrust was designed before the show aired, that explained a lot.
