-Multi connector for my yellow/white/red wires for my TV stuff.
-Audio connector so my game systems & VCR/DVD hybrid player output to my stereo speakers with sub properly.
-7 port USB hub for my PS3.

But the best thing of all? My legal name change is finally in & being processed!! :happy4: So, in about a month to month & a half, Rikku Eric Dunbar will be my legal name~ <3

After having just watched info on it I must say that the Wii version looks really fun. Though I am bothered by how they made unique versions for every console it was released on... Think I'll just stick with reading up on its story rather than actually getting a copy of the PS2 or PS3 versions.

Force Unleashed 2 looks more fun to me. The story seems to be more the focus this time around. & at least now I know what Vader was meaning when he said "You have served your purpose." So thanks for giving me the excuse to check it out. ::3:

No problem! (I love playing as Vader in the first level! Vader dose not run. He just briskly walks around while killing Wookies. There a weird zombie/robot level that end with fighting movie Starscream! It's really weird! (ILM is LAZZZY!)

Although, if they make each version to play to the strengths of the system it makes sense. At least it's not like WFC where the Wii version isn't even the same KIND of game.

Yeah, that's part of what makes it seem like such fun. It apparently has the same storyline as the others from what I read up on it. I've also heard only horrible things about the targeting in the X360, PS2, PS3 & PC versions... I wonder if TFU2 suffers that same issue.

Usually they try to fix that, especially with Lucasarts.

The funny thing with the game is that it teaches you how to swing the lightsaber around to get results, but I, of course, tend to swing it around like Luke.

OH! And there's a built in fighter games! So, SKids next time you come over we can have Darth Vader fight Darth Maul, or Luke.

Vader vs. Maul would be kick ass. It'd be made more awesome if you recorded it & put it online but that's wishful thinking on my part. :p

If you have a digital camera or webcam it's easy. At least I hope you realize I meant recording you & Skids doing that battle... In terms of recording gameplay I'm not sure how to do that either but I have heard that there is some program that makes it easy for us PS3 owners. No idea about Wii... Google prolly has answers. ::3:

Botcon 2009 Flak (Been planning to get that one for awhile!)

That makes Scourge and Kup (rendered pointless by their Generations/Reveal the Shield toys) and 2 Sweeps the only Botcon 09 toys I didn't end up getting. :smile:

Drift - 'Nuff said. :cool:

Human Alliance Jazz is FANTASTIC!

None of the issues that affected some of the other HA figures (Doors on the arms, other awkward bits like Sideswipe's huge backpack that were due to the need for human interaction.) The main thrust of his "alliance" with Lennox is the kickass motorcycle-into-gun feature.

WFC Optimus Prime who is extremely irritating to transform while following the instruction booklet. Figure is also very difficult to keep together in alt mode. Too many panels connecting to unsecured parts.

I found it holds together well after I jam & cram everything to fit into their places. Getting him to vehicle mode is irritating... So glad I'll 1 day customize him. Not Drift though. He's part of my "buy just for collecting." Though I do want to fix many issues he has... Namely around the actually limited shoulder motion.
