He stopped posting after 10 days and hasn't posted since.

I'm worried this may happen to Bronzewolf, forcing himself to sit through this (most likely more than once to make sure he gets everything!) each week to bring us reviews.

Stay strong man, stay strong.

I'm actually an admin at the site in question. The dude vanished off the face of the Earth.

Don't let the same fate befall you Bronzewolf!

I actually liked the part where Victorian got hit by Windblade's fire. I mean she's doing a strafing run, and it would really have been impossible for her to not hit, but in so many other cartoons, the bullets would have miraculously missed.

I suppose it looks like Megatronious wants to bring his dead lover back from the dead, at least that's what it looks like. Seriously, there was a good chance if that is the plot, that he might have just been able to ask for help.

I expect cheap plot devices like pop-up megatron, these are short episodes, and the show engages me just enough to want it to work.

But nothing makes any f'ing sense!

Why doesn't Volcanicus attack Predaking?

Why doesn't Victorion ever separate and GTFO?

Why does the fight between them all drag on for three episodes?

Why does Windblade *land and transform* only to *run away on her feet?**

We've seen Long Haul, Scavenger, Scrapper, and Stormclash in the previous two shows.

Thanks, everybody. Last week was the least fun it's been, it was just bad; but this week it was entertainingly bad, like I said in the review. At least I had material to work off of.

I wish I could get to the point where I could offer the series higher criticism, Pacing, Camera work, tone, actual scene to scene editing, etc. But it's so plagued by these terrible plot holes and Dues ex Machina moments that I can't even get there.

And hey, I thought Up the Swamp Without a Paddle was a good title, seeing as they haven't moved from one sidequest in three episodes and it's just getting worse and worse. It's fitting. I almost named it WHAT THE **** IS GOING OOOOOONNN but I thought a) that was too long and b) wouldn't exactly fly with my superiors. ;)

I have to say it againPREDAKING FLAPPED HIS WINGS!!, while jumping/falling off a cliff no less.

start at 45 seconds to see Predaking. Actually if you guys don't mind, since I'm 2 for 2 this may be a weekly thing for me now. Finding a moment in each episode of PotP that reminds me of Looney Tunes.

Also, I realized why I never explained myself as to why this was so late. Believe it or not, these take about 3 hours from front to back to produce. I just couldn't find that much time yesterday. I was about to put it up yesterday, but the site went down. I couldn't get it live until late last night. Next week we'll be more on time!

Sarcasm.

The sort of style you need when writing about Transformers vs Visionaries or this train-wreck of a trilogy.

In all fairness, we burned pretty much every bridge in the comic book industry.

DC blacklisted us a few years back. Not sure if that rule still holds.

New Clip From Power of the Primes Featuring Requiem Blaster

Postby william-james88 » Thu May 17, 2018 9:24 pm

Maybe a few of you were underwhelmed with how little Megatron had done so far in Machinima's Transformers Power of the Primes series, but things are about to change. The official Transformers Facebook page posted a featurette video about the Requiem Blaster. This is the gun forged by Solus Prime. We see some clips of events yet to happen as well, which includes Megatron weilding this fabelled weapon. You can watch it below. Let us know if you are looking forward to this and what you think of the show so far.

If you have any news, rumours, or hot new sightings to report which you feel should be front paged,

Gee, that clip sure gives away a lot of what's gonna happen in later episodes of this show, as though this show can't simply handle telling its story by itself. :roll:

You know, I guess I should've expected it by now, but I was still surprised at how easily they managed to make me giggle without even needing voice acting or any of the "usual" stuff that makes me laugh at this show. That descriptive text is so badly executed and the music so unfitting - I just can't take any of it seriously :lol:

Good lord. I like to imagine this would sound like the voice of the news announcer fish from Spongebob, completely overly dramatic. At least on that show it's supposed to be over the top for the sake of a joke.

Serious question: Is Machinima's Generations series the worst TF show ever done? Is it truly worst than Energon? I think if you include the hype machine (which inclues the CEO of Hasbro himself) and how much this fails to deliver, it might indeed be worse.

Many argue that either Energon or The Headmasters are still worse.
