    What the hell was that intro?

    And... Ready Player One. It's not "two-things t-shirt". It's just a list of '80s references. Every excerpt I've seen makes me second guess whether it's not fake and just something made.

    Like, this is... I'm hesitant to call it "writing". It's like when people go up to you, and say "You're a nerd right? You should watch Big Bang Theory!"

    If this is any indication as to what the movie will be like? Hoooooooo BOY

    I'm sorry I sound so heated, but it doesn't feel well thought out, it just feels like going up to you, getting in your face and saying "HEY LOOK IT'S THAT THING YOU LIKE! LOOK! LOOK!"

    "Last few years" was a typo. It should have said "last year." I was almost completely unaware of Overwatch until a friend talked me into trying the open beta.

    Also, as far as Great Moments in WTF History go, I will always fondly remember the time when TJ got the Decadriver and Vangelus passive aggressively set off ROTF Optimus's voice clip constantly throughout TJ's thoughts on the belt.

    I get everyone doesn\'t want to talk about IT without and leave their audience in the dark, but if your interests are remotely geeky there\'s no escaping a synopsis of IT.  This is my third time tripping over it, not counting the fact I know the story with intimate detail and know the 80s thing was only the cultural subset the hunt revolved around.  Which means they can freely load this out with modern stuff.

    Disappointed that Skywarp didn't get brought up by Seth during conversation about breaks/losing parts question.

    Seth might as well keep playing overwatch. They changed it so when you go past rank 100, 200, etc. you still will have to earn 20,000 exp.for all subsequent ranks.
    It used to be 25,000 exp before they updated it.
    As for overwatch meets Transformers I feel a Torbjorn would be good for Wheeljack since bulding is an actual part of his play mechanic. Also I feel Slag/Slug in Dino mode would be a good Doomfist paraelle.
    He can charge, Slam down with his tail, etc.
    Grimlock in robot mode would be similar to Reinhart with his sheild and sword. The more I think about this the more this could become a legitimate game.
    Megatron could have an ULT similar to Ana where the power boost goes to him turning into his gun mode and having another player use him as a super powerful gun. Ugh I\'m gonna be thinking about this all night lol
    Single queing in Overwatch\'s Competitive mode is a death sentance. You\'ll never break out of bronze or silver.
    I haven\'t checked to see if there is a TFW grouop but if anyone is on Xbox and wants someone to do competiive with me I\'m game. I don\'t get too salty and play for funizes. Plus I\'m Gold rank.

    I really enjoyed hearing you guys talk about Warhammer 40K

    (BTW the timeline was advanced by 100 years, not "a year')

    and Not all of the Primarchs are Dead. Lion El Johnson is also in a coma. Corvus Corax, Jaghatai Khan, and Leman Russ all disappeared into the Warp
    Rogal Dorn may be alive, and Vulkan has vanished. Ferrus Manus was the only Loyalist Primarch that actually died.

    If what we're all seeing in our collective fan hivemind's eye is right, I'm kind of disappointed that in a line named after the primes they aren't going to release Generations toys of the actual 13 primes. I think a good "gimmick" they could have worked out was all of the primes coming with relics/artifacts relevant to their characters. Like Solus and her forge.

    Vangelus, I relayed to you the story about Takara engineers slipping in features when we were talking about Aaron Archer's panel. But thanks for making me think I'm SDCC.

    Blurr for Tracer.

    I also thought of Wheeljack for Torbjorn. His ultimate could be that a few Dinobots appear and help him kick butt for a few seconds.

    Omega Spreem for D.Va.

    So you mentioned having Nightbeat's screaming head in Rodimus' matrix, but you haven't mentioed recursive Rodimii! You can have the the box set Rodimus Prime Titan Master in Hot Rod's Matrix while he's sitting in the Rodimus Prime POTP Armor! It's one step further than Brawn is currently able to get!
