@  Sabrblade : (07 August 2020 - 08:50 AM)

Think of it as Adam West Batman instead. ;)

@  wonko the sane? : (07 August 2020 - 07:49 AM)

That sounds more like the flash, or maybe booster gold than batman.

@  Sabrblade : (07 August 2020 - 12:27 AM)

They would get bored fighting each other and instead decide to take an epic cross-country road trip together.

@  RichardT1977 : (06 August 2020 - 08:57 PM)

What would happen if Batman were to fight Squirrel Girl?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 09:03 PM)

Unless you count the Mask vs Lobo special, but that's less a duel and more a duet.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 08:52 PM)

My favorite crossover fight was Thor vs Shazam/Captain Marvel. Early in the fight, Thor discovers that Billy Batson needs lightning to transform, and being a god of lightning he simply denies him that.

@  Sabrblade : (04 August 2020 - 08:46 PM)

Let's see a fight between Death Battle and Super Power Beat Down

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

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

Did they have working television sets in Fallout 3? Is that a new thing?

Yup, but it was largely under played. It was meant to resemble that time when the radio was king, and the television was just starting to be used. The TV took a surprisingly long time (all things considered.) to reach saturation. It was a long, slow, almost painful change in medium.

 

And I honestly don't care if it was made using the same engine as new vegas. The game looks AWESOME, and I cannot wait to play it. Course, massively high end graphics have never really been a big priority for me. Hell, I would take PS2 level graphics if it meant huge open worlds and little to no loading times.

I know its not the same... but I hope they kept the "puppies!" perk.

 

So... I was thinking on  it when I jumped back on my game of new vegas. The only thing I care about right now, literally the only thing: Am I going to have to buy a new microsoft PC controller to play this game, or will my old one do?

I know, War never changes, but Fallout should, really.  

Seeing this trailer left me with one impression - "How is this any different from F3/New Vegas?" (For that matter, why wasn't New Vegas F4?) Same graphic style, frankly to me the graphics seem the same too, from what we saw, same third/first person shooter gameplay with some RPG elements.

 

And the trailer is the tired old "slow pull back from the TV screen intercut with old news reports" thing again. After 3+2 games, it has gotten a bit repetitive. But I guess, this is Bethesda, maker of the Never-Elderscolling Saga, so why change what worked in the past.

 

Wake me up when they go back to the old action-points turn based system. :(

I meant specifically in-game. Computer monitors were a big part of them, but I don't remember any functioning TVs.

What I'm basically getting at is; are going to get some fake video game TV shows? Because I love those.

Oh, far as I know: none of the TV's in the game ever worked, except the ones in the intros. Dunno bout future fallouts, but radio seems to be the way they go.

TVs might work, but as there is no broadcast... why bother with them? I think the Enclave had a radio broadcast in F2, but that's all.

You have to be quick to find him before he is kicked to death, I guess. :) (btw, ever played Arcanum? Dogmeat is kinda-sorta in that game too, but being harassed by an angry gnome this time)

I'm imagining a mixture of propaganda from whatever organisations might be in control, and some public access-style nonsense from random people that found some working equipment. Also some pre-war cartoons maybe.

The flashback parts (since it is said the trailer is made in game) gives me the hope you can actually play in pre-nuke times.

does the protagonist TALK this time? he talked to the dog. i hope the character talks this time. i hate mute characters, especially in the video game generation we are in. no reason for characters not to talk other than they just dont want to do it

 

and yay! more color! i understand why it looked so bleak and drap in 3, but it kinda made playing the game depressing...

I hope not, or that it's an option that can be toggled. It makes no sense in a game like Fallout, where the player chooses dialog from a few responses on the screen... why would I want to sit there listening to the dialog I just read two seconds ago before selecting my response?

Personally, when a create-a-character has a voice I feel a lot more limited when making them. They have to fit the voice or else it feels weird.

Not that I don't enjoy many games where that is the case, but I like both philosophies existing.

Look pretty awesome!  I mean, you know, for a few minutes of non-gameplay footage.

 

Makes me want to go back and replay 3 and NV.

 

I never got the hang of the old ones, though.  Hell, I didn't even make it out of the vault cave in the first one.
