Fall of Cybertron Edit
The game's coming out in less then a week. A new awesome launch trailer was released today! Currently I believe it's just on IGN's website. http://www.ign.com/videos/2012/08/17/transformers-fall-of-cybertron-launch-trailer#.UC5xbWPwejE.twitter Magma-Man 21:07, August 17, 2012 (UTC)
Fall of Cybertron Edit
You are going to want to make sure you have Microsoft Points ready. They've already released a dlc pack (Adds five new characters, Wheeljack (Infiltrator), Ultra Magnus (Destroyer), Zeta Prime (Destroyer), Perceptor (Titan), and Blast Off (Scientist). Also, apparently both the Dinobot and Insecticon dlc packs come out in less then a month. There will be no map packs. I'm dissapointed with the dlc line-up. Too fast and not enough. And yes, the Stegosaurus will be in the Dinobot pack. Magma-Man 21:05, August 22, 2012 (UTC)
The Story Edit
Basically, it was a given title, and we had to interpret it. I used lost in time as a theme, then the plot got confusing and the title means bugger all now.
It's a sort of vaguely horror-related thing that is meant to be funny.
“Stop! Now! Please” screamed the girl.
“Don’t shout little girl, it’s only a little dissection” muttered a strange figure.
I thought to myself “Great” after reading that another kidnapping and murder happened last night. 74 Domina Avenue was the address, which I recognised but did not understand why. I have been working for the CAA, or the Criminal Apprehension Association, for a long time. I have caught some weird people in my job, but the description of this guy really takes the cake. Scarred body, charred face, wears parts of his victims. This is going to be one hell of an investigation. I went to my car, and sat down. I drove towards the block of flats that these torture and murder cases were presumably happening. I looked up towards the block of flats, and knew that No. 74 was in them. I stepped out and approached the door. The flats looked rundown and abandoned, it seemed like nobody has been living here for years. I opened the door, or rather knocked it down as the hinges were as rusted as a wet iron bar. I climbed up the stairs, and I found it to be on Floor 3. I slowly opened the door, waiting for a disgusting, despicable and deadly creature to be there. Then I realized my lousy use of alliteration, and just went inside.
The flat was engulfed by darkness. Lightbulbs were smashed all over the floor, threatening to slice anyone who dared to traverse them barefoot. Candles were melted, leaving no light source inside the flat. I flicked on my torch and had a look at the flat. Most of the doors were smashed, with holes that seemed like the shape of fists. The windows were barricaded and let in little to no natural light. I was now expecting him to have Rickets.
I knew that this was definitely the place where these events were happening, unless bloodstains and human organs were now normal decoration. The kitchen is where I was expecting to find all the, let’s say ‘good’ evidence. But strangely enough, it seemed like a relatively normal kitchen aside from the barricaded window and smashed door. He even had Corn Flakes. I even checked through the cutlery drawers, and the only blood I found was on a lump of beef in the fridge. I was actually disappointed. I thought the kitchen would have loads of interesting evidence. But I mustn’t stop at the most obvious place and entered the bathroom. Now the one place I wasn’t expecting to find evidence was the bathroom, but behold the cliché, I found important information in the least obvious place! Blood was smeared all over the mirror, and yes it was a human’s. I took a quick sample and went to examine the toilet, yay. I found poo, more poo and wait a minute, A BLOODY KNIFE. Finally, some real evidence. The bath surprisingly didn’t have a body in, but it did have more blood so that’s something.
I heard a noise from inside, what I assumed was, the bedroom. I opened the door and encountered the most horrific sight so far. Dead bodies were strung from the ceiling. A man was slicing another bodies chest like a gruesome tribe ritual. He stood up and turned around, slowly. His face was as black as the finest charcoal. His chest was scarred, and it looked like it slashed in to a specific symbol. He seemed very scraggy, but I knew he wasn’t tom be messed with. He was wearing nothing but ripped shorts, which was ripped by himself by the looks of it. He had no hair and he was bleeding, showing he had ripped it out. The most evident thing about him was a belt of human hands around his waist. They were still dripping, indicating a fresh cut. I was surprised, he actually didn’t have rickets. He approached me and whispered in to my ear “Isn’t it past your bedtime?”. As he finished he grabbed my torch and threw it onto the floor, destroying my only source of light. “Nighty Night” he screeched, which is the last thing I heard before waking up somewhere else.
I awoke, but not strapped to a chair like I expected to be. I was actually just on a normal bed, with actual sunlight coming through the window. I thought about where I was. Was it a dream? Was it all imaginary? No, it wasn’t. Turns out that I am still where I was. It wasn’t sunlight at all, just a bright lamp. Turns out there is other light sources here. Great. I got up and tried the door, and it opened. Lovely. Maybe not, all that was on the other side was more barricades. I found a tape player and pressed play, awaiting a ‘Saw’ moment. It was actually just a tape of the Bee Gees.
As the song finished, I think it was Jive Talkin’, I heard a small explosion. The wall behind me was open and that psycho was there. He raced towards me and pinned me down to the bed. He handcuffed me to the metal railing and stepped away and began to speak. “Hello Adam” he said “Surprised aren’t you?”.
“H-How do you now my name?” I falsely stuttered.
“It’s a very long story. In fact, we both should know it” he explained. “Twenty years ago you caused an accident, a huge accident. 12 fatalities, 34 seriously injured. Do you remember?”.
“O-Of Course. W-Who would forget as terrible as that?” I stammered, still faking it.
“You may not know yet, but you are a time traveler. That night, November 24th, you stalled your car and caused a lorry to crash and 27 cars to crash in to that. November 23rd was the night of your first bout of time travel. You shouldn’t remember it, as you were sleeping. On the night of the 24th you traveled back again to 19th April, today’s date. You came here, looking for me” he continued.
“H-How do you know all of this?” I spoke, again faking the speech impediment.
“Well, I am going to tell you something you wont believe, something so stereotypical in stories of time travel you will have to believe it. I am you” he stated, smiling.
“What the heck you maniac!” I shouted, losing the fake stutter, “Who do you think you are!?”
“I’m you. I am part of an altered timeline. Want evidence, Adam Harry Yates from 12 Goodyear Crescent?” He implied.
“I believe you, now let m-“ is all I could speak before he interrupted.
“Ha, I knew you would come around. Goodbye me, thanks for making me who I am!” shrieked the man, “And You! Reading this story! YOU’RE NEXT!”. That is all I heard, before he wrapped his hands around my throat as I thought “Wow, cheerio the fourth wall”.
Fall of Cybertron Multiplayer Edit
I know you don't have the game yet but you may still be interested in seeing the update they've made to help with multiplayer balance. Main thing I hate is that they've nerfed my beloved rocket cannon, main thing I'm happy about is that they've upgraded the EDK Techvolt's damage. That thing was USELESS before.
Magma-Man 17:21, August 29, 2012 (UTC)
The Dinobot dlc pack is out! To be honest I'm dissapointed. The dinosaurs perform WAY too much like their vehicle counterparts and most of their parts are ugly and don't fit my characters. I LOVE playing as the stegosaurus though. He acts like a truck mostly but he's so much fun! Here's a video of Snarl (The stego) gameplay! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dYFZvpjTS0I&feature=context-gfa
Are you going to get the dlc? Remember you don't have to get it all, if you are interested in only some of the pieces you can buy a piece for 80 points as apposed to the whole packs 800 price (Although obviously the 800 price for the whole pack is the better buy) Magma-Man 07:49, September 12, 2012 (UTC)
Nah. It's just similar to my Minecraft avatar, I prefer to have one that just represents me. Believe me, especially with Halo 4 coming out, Transformers is alot more interesting to me right now. Magma-Man 00:26, September 19, 2012 (UTC)
Sure I don't mind.10:21, September 19, 2012 (UTC)
900th Maiden Edit
Hey, I'll happily make some of the pages if needs be. Also, I saw you added an Introduced in Outside Influence bit. I am slightly confused by this. Do the songs that were introduced in Time Monster appear in OI, or vice versa? 900bvThe Spatz Machine 18:37, September 19, 2012 (UTC)
Re:Best Video Ever Edit
Oh my god, that video was so funny :D Thanks for showing me!
P.S. My favorite person was the guy in the maroon sweater who was just like "ohmaigod wow" at everything.
Thanks man. c:19:09, September 27, 2012 (UTC)
Transformers: War for Cybertron Edit
Just in case you are interested, Transformers: War for Cybertron is currently on sale for 800 MS points if you have the Hard Drive space: http://marketplace.xbox.com/en-US/Product/Transformers-WFC/66acd000-77fe-1000-9115-d8024156084c I personally think it's Escalation mode is much better (If you buy the map packs) and it's campaign is pretty good, although nothing compared to Fall of Cybertron's campaign, and it's multiplayer is a NO WHERE NEAR as good version of Fall of Cybertron. Magma-Man 03:11, October 5, 2012 (UTC)
OMGZ GUESS WAT Edit
Thanks to Bing Rewards and the half-off sale, I now own the second content collection pack for Modern Warfare 3, meaning I now have those Face Off maps you want me to have! Yay! Magma-Man 15:28, October 9, 2012 (UTC)
I came back on chat right when you left. PLZ COME BAK! :(15:36, October 29, 2012 (UTC)
I'm fine with it Ebon, you don't need to ask me twice xD22:06, October 29, 2012 (UTC)
No, there's only 5, I'm not an admin :/
00:07, October 30, 2012 (UTC)
I'd definitely be up for that. As for ideas, I don't really know at the moment. I'll make sure to leave a message if I think of anything.
Nice to see you.... How are you doing? Good job on the wiki :)
Hey Ebon, I was wondering if u wanted to make up a new storyline with me, because i've wanted share some of my ideas for NZP and i wanted to kno if u wanted to make 1 wif me so look 4 me, yeah, i'm australian! Tazmission115 (talk) 11:29, December 31, 2012 (UTC)
Please see my message to you on Xbox live. Please don't pick on my brother, it hurts him much but me even more, he's a nice kid just wants friends, and harassing him by destroying his base nearly got me grounded. Please don't do that again and be nicer to him, he's younger than you and has OCD and Asperger's Syndrome. He's really sweet and just needs people to be nice to him. If your sibling was in his situation I'd be nice to them.
05:22, December 27, 2012 (UTC)
Hey Ebon, do you know a good name for our storyline, because i already have a name for a map, 'City of the Damned' and I have some map designs i drew earlier this year and they are called 'Temple of Blood' and 'Nachbarschaftspolitik der Holle (Neighborhood of Hell)' if you have other ideas for maps and so forth, either tweet me or just leave a message on my talk page Tazmission115 (talk) 11:29, December 31, 2012 (UTC)
Hey Ebon, i've started the storyline, it is called Broken Dimensions and the only map in it currently is called Doomsday 2017, and i wanted to know if u had any ideas for some maps and twists to the storyline. Tazmission115 (talk) 13:59, January 1, 2013 (UTC)
Ok im sorry i didn't know that was bad for users you guys did the same thing on the article well I got to stop because I was helping you guys for the photo and arcticle sorry
Two Things Edit
Why the *bleep* did you change your gamertag to Nostalgia Freak or whatever it was? It confused me at first as I thought you removed me from your friends list and further perplexes me on why you'd spend 800 MSP to do so.
Second of all, I may be getting Halo Wars. Depends on whether or not Walmart still has a copy on the bargain rack on Wednesday as it's been months since I last looked and whether it will make me $20 short of getting Bioshock: Infinite on release or near release. Magma-Man 03:26, January 21, 2013 (UTC)
I had to.
I just had to.
The text looked better when it was a .png but it blurred when I converted it because it refused to upload.

Re: My new Avatar, so to speak Edit
Wow, you like TLA too? That's awesome :D Who is your favorite character in the TLA universe?
Haha, I hope we aren't either. That movie was god awful!
Dead Rising? Hah, that's what caused the hate. FUCKING. XBONE. EXCLUSIVE.
-- 20:13, June 10, 2013 (UTC)
RE7? That'd be nice. In all honesty, Dead Rising started off as an Xbox exclusive, so I shouldn't be as angry. Also, why not get my live reaction to the Ubisoft conference here!

Bioshock: Infinite Edit
Everything I've heard about Remember Me is bad, from the crap combat to the poorly written story that doesn't fully utilize it's unique concepts, and countless people have told me about how they wanted to love it but can't. So I don't recommend going with it.
As for Bioshock: Infinite and the things you've asked about:
- Gameplay: Think Call of Duty with Sky Hooks and Vigors and slightly less fun to shoot weapons.
- Story: Absolutely amazing, one of the most well-written games I've ever played. As I have said, "At the end of System Shock 2 I felt accomplishment, I had beaten the game! When I beat Bioshock I felt satisfaction at a solid and well crafted experience, when I beat Infinite I felt sadness because it was over and I wouldn't have the first time experience again." Don't let anyone spoil it for you, you'd be doing yourself a huge disservice.
- Bosses: I personally didn't mind any of them but alot of people complain about the Siren, a paranormal entity that raises enemies from the dead and you have to fight like three times in a row.
Bioshock: Infinite is currently my #1 favorite game of all time, finally beating out System Shock 2 and I fully recommend it to anyone. Magma-Man 00:39, June 23, 2013 (UTC)
Im sorry I havent been on in awhile but I want to take a savage kantus. I don't know what I chose before so yeah I want to join in on the rp so yeah tell me when the rp startsCentar.legend (talk) 23:49, August 5, 2013 (UTC)centar.legend
