General / Re: ABC Warriors timeline in light of comments in Fallout

I think the original return to Mars was an attempt to return to the classic days of the Warriors

I recall really enjoying the initial return to Mars arcs, but a new setting would be more than welcome.
The follow-up Mars setting has been in place since Prog 2000 (December 1999)!

I feel that the current story-line is pushing forward somewhat, and anticipate a new direction (and likely new team line-up) by the time it wraps up.

I was also a bit surprised to hear Football Crazy was being reprinted, until checking on Barney and seeing it's only 30 pages. Man, that dreck clouded by view of the previous Robo-Hunter reprint.

Eh?

Still, with about 400 pages of classic Robo-Hunter left to collect, what will be omitted? (This assuming the strip gets only two volumes and not three, which would have contained everything and the Hogan run, too.)

Up to the end of Play it Again, Sam is 221 pages (take that away and a second book would be only 139, so it seems pretty certain that's where the book'll be split). The rest of the classic run is 161 pages. You could bulk that up with all Hogan's stories or the majority of the Samantha Slade stuff (minus the final two stories).

Must... Resist... Urge... To... Rant...

About what? Stealing content and using illegal streaming sites like Pirate Bay?

It's an interesting discussion, and often very revealing. Perhaps in another thread.

We might need a separate thread for the amazing "Spa Wars" too, which I've never heard of, and have no interest in watching. On my TV.

Mario Odyssey deserved it's own thread goddammit, but I'll keep rolling with this one.

The poster claimed not to have a tv and that, because of this, had not heard of the programme in question. That is all. Not having a tv does not equate to an inability to watch tv programmes. I do not own a pogo stick but that doesn't mean I am unable to jump up and down.

There's been some disagreement about the original statement. I too surmised that the non-ownership of a TV had somehow been the reason that the poster hadn't heard of Spa Wars.

However, a more recent post (above) by MIK disputed that was the intention of the post, and that the fact the poster hadn't heard of Spa Wars was not in fact related to owning a TV, but rather the inference was that not having a TV was a good thing, because it meant that the poster wouldn't actually be able to WATCH Spa Wars.

So here we are. How does the poster watch Television programmes without a TV?

I would suggest that actually the poster in question CAN watch TV programmes, via alternative screens/ devices, and could actually watch Spa Wars (if they had heard of it, and were inclined to watch it), but instead chose to bring into the discussion the fact that they didn't own a TV, as if that somehow placed them on a higher intellectual plane, and a more discerning consumer of Television, than people who do own TVs, and might actually watch Spa Wars.

Hopefully the OP can confirm.

Finally achieved 100% completion last night- my last Power Moon was the 'Iceburn Circuit Class S'- nearly killed me that one.
Were the the rewards - a few cosmetic touches (Gold Odyssey sails and a Top-hat on Peach's castle) - really worth the effort?
Of course they were.  :|

I'd like to take this opportunity to voice my own concerns about Tordelback's posts- consistently glib, unfriendly and completely devoid of intelligent refinement.

Something has to be done.

Hmm. So that now raises the question of what might fill the extra space, assuming the next two books aren't a bit skinnier.
