It's almost like all drama is just manufactured pissing contests to keep us all entertained and distracted. :p

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (04 August 2020 - 10:16 AM)

Or they could go White Ranger vs Scorpion route and have both win. ;P

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:35 AM)

Besides, we all know the answer is nearly always "they fight to a standstill and then team up against a common enemy."

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:29 AM)

The best way to prove this is to give an example where the match is really lopsided in favor of one character but in popularity they're either evenly matched or the weaker one is more popular.

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:27 AM)

The "who would win in a fight" discussions are really just people trying to make "which one's better" into something you can theoretically measure objectively, usually in a very specific way they think they've predetermined their favorite will win.

@Nevermore So... you're saying you didn't like DC Versus Marvel/Marvel Versus DC?

@  Steevy Maximus : (03 August 2020 - 06:59 PM)

So, what happened to Hasbro's Zoids relaunch? An English dub, some stuff in southeast Asia, and now a game coming in October? That it?

Btw Happy birthday to those people in the box to the right \o/

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:16 AM)

The bottom line is obvious. It makes no literal sense to fight someone on your faction. :/

@  wonko the sane? : (03 August 2020 - 06:14 AM)

That's because you're doing it wrong. You're supposed to just stack skills and ability against each other. It's not the palace of doom, it's an episode of american gladiators.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:32 AM)

The only obvious winners of such a fight would be the bad guys.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

And what does it even matter? They should work together, not stupidly fight each other for the mindless entertainment of idiot onlookers.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

Why would two good guys fight each other? What are they fighting over?

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:28 AM)

I never understood these "who would win in a fight between two good guys" discussions. They make no sense to me.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 August 2020 - 04:17 PM)

If G1 had continued we'd have had Starscream back in spirit - through Krunk, Snapdragons partner and possibly Skullcruncher unless he was mute.

@  Bass X0 : (02 August 2020 - 12:28 PM)

There are some decent impersonators in fandubs though.

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 August 2020 - 10:45 AM)

The only true Starscream voices are Steve Blum and Chris Latta, hands down.

@  Sabrblade : (02 August 2020 - 10:14 AM)

Why they didn't have Scott McNeil voicing that Starscream, when he was the one who had imitated Chris Latta when he voiced Cobra Commander in the DiC G.I. Joe cartoon, is beyond me.

@  wonko the sane? : (02 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Say what you will, that was an awesome scene.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 August 2020 - 08:36 PM)

Hearing Starscream's screechy voice in Cyberverse has to be the most annoying thing ever in Transformers. Even his G1 voice wasn't as bad. :doh

@  Bass X0 : (30 July 2020 - 06:08 PM)

I'm asking people if they think they could.

Has anyone been following this?

http://www.elitedangerous.com/

 

I watched a gameplay video yesterday and so far it looks like this could be amazing.  Kind of a cross between what Star Trek Online should have been and the X-Wing PC games.  I hope it pans out to be as good as it looks like it can be.

It took me two attempts to get through the first combat tutorial. After that, I was undefeated right up until the final one... where in I died three times and rage quit.

 

I... I don't know if I like the game, but I think I like it. I'm not sure if I like the me that plays it though.

Finally sat down and did something OTHER than the combat sims! Open game even!

 

I didn't die. That's about all I can say about my time playing: I got my first mission, managed to get to my destination, walked through an attack, and landed: and I didn't die. There isn't so much a learning curve as there is a learning escarpment: but if you aren't being shot at and aren't flying into a star, there's also plenty of time to stop, alt-tab out and look shit up.

 

Unless you're trying to land: that damn timer stressed me out. I did make some good coin (even a bounty! Some ass started shooting me, so I put him down, and got paid to do it... cause reasons. Not gonna question it even though there were cops helping.) dropped a paint job on my ship, bought a landing computer and a new power plant.

 

It's... I hesitate to say realistic since we haven't actually gone out there and done it, but it is something else. There's multiple levels to super cruise: intraplanetary, intra-system, and you apparently need to step up to each, and there is a process do it right. I... almost spent 20 hours flying to another star system, before I looked it up and got the hyperspace jump right.

 

There is a LOT to remember: which is fair because in truth: space flight is bloody well complicated! And it's damned well hard trying to fly using a joystick, throttle AND keyboard to fill in the gaps. Still, it's fun, the game is beautiful, and I think I like it.

Yeah, this is my sort of game, but it's a bit clunky with a controller in hand. Landing especially took a good bit of practice.

Did a couple of milk runs, got used to fluttering about different star systems, then spent an hour and a half trying to find a literal needle in a haystack: A single, errant black box lost somewhere in a trinary system.

 

I almost ran out of fuel, and decided instead to camp out, abandon the quest, and pick up something else tomorrow. I'm making better money shooting down the putzes that think they can interdict and rob me.

Bought me a new ship, killed the dude that decided he wanted to make my cargo his, and then figured out how to change the HUD colours. It was a nice evening.

 

Oh, and I almost flew into a star: but I'm blaming that on the fact it was a new ship.

So my falcon has three times the cargo space as the sidewinder, so I keep taking missions where I have to ferry X number of things to Y locations, which is easy cause I tricked out my freight shift drive, but I've also seen more combat in the last few days than I have any other time.

 

Seems to me the way to get bounties is to fill up your hold with something worth while, and just fly around killing the folks who shoot at you first.

I'm blowing the dust off this thread. Elite dangerous was just released for PS4. Is it worth getting? I had been aware of his game earlier but didn't have a pc to play it on. Seeing all the pretty trailers is making me think this is what No Mans sky was supposed to be, or at least what I expected from it.

I can't vouch for the ps4 version, but I've put more than 100 hrs in on the pc.

Personally, I enjoy it. Currently heading to Sagittarius A* in my little Cobra mkIII. Taking forever since my jump range is just under 24ly and I keep stopping to scan water and ammonia worlds.

Ended tonight's leg at Plaa Ain HC-D c12-74 B 1:

Was a rather uneventful night.  No water worlds, no terraformable worlds, not even any really cool ringed worlds.

Welp, you inspired me. I went back, nuked my old save (as I didn't have much time on it anyway, and there have been several major updates... like the pilot customization stuff.), and am going to restart today. Wonkolith and the Iron Rattler roll again!

 

Oh yeah, ship naming! When did that happen?!?!

Back in February, iirc. Maybe March. I know it was after I upgraded my ship.

You can customize how your commander looks now too and even see him sitting in the pilots chair from outside.

If I wasn't 9000ly away from civilization, I'd be willing to meet up with you.

Forgot to mention my Commanders name is Coglestop.

Once I figure out how: gonna add you to the friends list. I... never worked out how to do it because I'm not much of a multiplayer guy. Seriously.

 

Regardless: I am ready to cruise the galaxy again. I went through the first three training missions (those are new too! I like 'em better than the generic "sim" context of the old ones.) to get my boots on, figured out how to reconfigure the presets, found my old bindings file for my T-flight controller, and managed to make it actually work. (has to be loaded in the presets AND the light on the controller has to be green... I think I knew that when I stopped playing...).

 

So yeah, ready to actually start again!
