Which Lobo later claimed was because he was paid to take a dive. Yes, really.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 August 2020 - 06:15 PM)

And then there's the times it's been decided by a fan vote, which is how we get things like Lobo (who can go toe-to-toe with Superman at full strength) losing to Wolverine.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

And then there are the "but my favorite characater will totes win because I say so" people.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I mean, there are some people who really approach this from a somewhat reasonable standpoint, coming up with a plausible scenario and a setting that creates a fair environment that doesn't favor one character.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:46 PM)

My favorite stupid "why would they even fight each other" question recently was about three versions of Optimus Prime (G1, Bayverse and Aligned).

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:45 PM)

Batman obviously can beat everyone. Even Galactus. He's Batman. He's so smart, he'll just throw a Batarang and hit the weak spot at Galactus's forehead, knocking him out instantaneously.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 August 2020 - 11:37 AM)

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.

@  Otaku : (04 August 2020 - 02:01 AM)

@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?

@  wonko the sane? : (03 August 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Tidal wave, cause shooting water gets you nowhere.

@  Darth Gonzo : (03 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Who would win Tidal Wave or Broadside?

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:17 AM)

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.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 August 2020 - 08:36 AM)

Beast Wars Starsream "I am AIR COMMANDER Starscream of the DECEPTICON BATTLEFLEET!"

@  Nevermore : (02 August 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I liked TF: Prime Starscream.

@  -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

@  Nevermore : (30 July 2020 - 06:38 PM)

Ransack. That's like another 20 or so.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 July 2020 - 06:18 PM)

"Prowl". There, that's at least fifteen.

@  Nevermore : (30 July 2020 - 06:15 PM)

Or do you want people to spam the Squawkbox with lists of 100 characters?

@  Nevermore : (30 July 2020 - 06:15 PM)

Oky, just one question: If I were to say "Yes, I could", how could you be sure I'm not lying?

This whole thing makes me wonder how much of the new stuff in the DS port is based on stuff that was cut from the original N64 game.

Probably not a lot, since most of these cuts happened WAY early in development.

 

Hell even that Luigi model, while 'real' wasn't in the actual game data that was leaked. (His assets were in a folder in the early beta source code leak, but there was no reference of that model in the actual code that was leaked)

Well at any rate, the description for the video says that Luigi's model has harsher shading, which is amusing because of that gun pic you brought up earlier.

The Mario Lego sets don't come with printed instructions, you have to use the app to download them.

 

This feels like it was Nintendo's idea to ensure that only kids with smart devices, and actually capable of playing the game, would buy the sets. It feels like something they would do.

This is just the starter set, the Bowser's Castle set is a lot more complex.

fairly sure the point of these sets is to build your own "levels" so instructions would be defeating the point


D&D has to report to shareholders. Pathfinder only has to impress its neckbeards.

I mean you would still need instructions on how to put together the level elements themselves together and the enemies and stuff.

 

But even then, I think less paper waste is kind of a good thing and you know I feel most kids in 2020 are gonna have some type of smart device anyways and if they don't? You can easily get an unlocked Android for like $60 on Amazon.

I was thinking of getting the Bowser's Castle set because I once made a Lego Bowser when I was a little kid, and an official Lego Bowser would be a nice throwback to my childhood, but it doesn't even look that good. He looks like a Boom-Boom wearing a Bowser mask.

April and I watched the reveal live today for the lutz, and I'm really looking forward to a lot of things in this update - I've kinda been wondering how an Infested open world would work since I realized soon after Fortuna that that's naturally what would come next. The visual design is just stellar. I love the new Infested enemy types based on the ancient defense robots, that's clever and so natural that it would have taken me six months to realize they'd missed the chance if they hadn't included them. 

 

And yet the thing I'm really most wanting to play with right this minute is what powers I can get out of the Helminth feeding frames to it and which one I'll be using to replace Nova's 2. XD


Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

Vi and I caught the stream for Hydroid Prime and to see what's coming. Really, really looking forward to the power swapping ability. 

 

It's pretty clever, too. Like, selling an old frame you don't use anymore isn't really worth it, but if you can sacrifice it for a power to swap onto another frame that's actually really useful... and gives players incentive to repeat frame-building runs in order to gain access to useful powers.  Also, the Helminth mouth is just... *chef kiss* I was stupidly pleased every time that gaping maw smiled. I don't know why, but it's the most adorable abomination of nature ever!

 

Also, I want to ride the dragonfly.

 

Meanwhile, having a great time with Hydroid Prime. Not sure about colors, though. Leaning toward a coral themed color set, but it's hard to nail down.  Powers are fun as hell, though.

Yep. Whatever Wisp grants (her 2 or her 3, since her 1 is signature and ineligible) is going on my Nova in place of Anticlimax Drop.

 

Edit: And there are other frames with no bad abilities, like Saryn or Nezha, to feed to my Mesa's 1 slot.
