Super Run by Fools Paradise

Fresh off the Super Professional 2 Director’s Cut, Fools Paradise switches things up by recasting the plumber and princess into new roles with Super Run.  Sitting on a familiar bench, Gump  ponders the meaning of life as he opens a box of chocolates (power-up boxes) alongside Peach who’s reading from a Fools Paradise catalog. 

The deluxe vinyl set is fully realized including the details on both figures such as the pigeon poop on Gump’s shoes, the bench with nice textural effects, and Gump’s accessories including his Fools Gum Squid Co. hat and his old-school suitcase.

Limited to 498 sets, Super Run features Gump (~11.8″), Peach, the park bench (16.5″) and the various accessories.  It’s available now for pre-order direct from Fools Paradise for $328 (+$30 worldwide shipping).

People are pissed about the quality of Fallout 76’s Power Armor edition, and Bethesda’s apology gift sucks

The hits just keep coming. Fallout 76 players have been quite vocal about their displeasure with the West Virginia Wasteland. A thin story, poor multiplayer implementation, a tedious inventory system, and bugs galore plague the latest Fallout game. But the latest complaint suggests Bethesda’s shortcomings aren’t limited to just the software.

At E3, Bethesda announced a limited $199 Power Armor edition of Fallout 76. The centerpiece was a wearable T-51b Power Armor helmet, but it had some other goodies. Among them was a “Canvas West Tek Duffel Bag,” meant to store the helmet.

People who ponied up for the expensive Fallout 76 edition got something much cheaper in quality. The bag that shipped was actually nylon, not canvas. There’s a big difference. Canvas is heavy duty and can stand up to some wear and tear. Nylon is the flimsy junk that 5K Walk for the Cure promotional bags are made of.

Here’s a comparison shot:

Transformers Siege Leaked Stock Photos For Optimus Prime & Megatron, Plus Battle Master Scans

Apparently it was too early to observe that the flow of leaks via Weibo had seemed to subside, as usual-suspect "tf-factory" has put out a few minor items in the last little while. We’ve got copies of the final stock images for Voyager wave 1, showing the packaging and robot and vehicle images for Optimus Prime and Megatron. This is not our first time seeing the Voyager packaging, as it had been displayed at Summer Wonderfest in Japan immediately after SDCC. We also have images of the covers for the Hasbro Asia variants of the instructions for wave 1 Battle Masters, which brought an interesting detail to light, especially when taken together with the Voyager packaging.

Psyonix VP is ‘really happy’ about Sony’s cross-play decision, but ‘doesn’t have any updates’ on Rocket League at the moment

This morning Sony did the unthinkable. After over a year of denying requests for cross-play between the PS4 and other console competitors like Xbox One and Switch, even going so far as to justify the lack of a feature because “PlayStation is the best place to play,” they kicked off a Fortnite beta, opening up the potential for full cross-platform unity. The key word is “potential,” as the flood gates aren’t completely open yet.

Given that Psyonix has been one of the biggest champions of PS4/Xbox One cross-play since the very start of the conversation, Destructoid reached out to them for comment and received the following response from Jeremy Dunham, Vice President of Publishing at Psyonix:

“We are really happy for the PlayStation and Fortnite communities and think that this is a great step forward. We know that Rocket League players and our own community want to know what this means for them as well, but we don’t have any updates at the moment. In the meantime, we recommend reaching out to PlayStation directly for any further comment.”

In other words, more conversations need to happen, and it’s clear that Sony isn’t allowing cross-play for everything like Microsoft has. Time will tell if Rocket League gets the Gladiator thumbs up, and right now all eyes are on Minecraft, which supports cross-play between PC, Xbox One, Switch, and mobile platforms. Will it be the next wall to crumble? Or will Sony still remain adamantly against cross-play given that Microsoft owns the IP?
