Which crisis crossover are we on now? I lost track.

@  Rycochet : (09 August 2020 - 05:18 PM)

Much of the past decade has been the part of the comic series where less than stellar authors have driven the series into the ground and the editors are getting ready to either do a big multi issue crossover, leading to a reboot.

@  Bass X0 : (09 August 2020 - 02:28 PM)

At this point I've just decided to consider 2020 "not canon."

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 August 2020 - 02:18 PM)

'member Pepperidge Farm?

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 August 2020 - 02:10 PM)

Before the 'member berries there was Pepperidge farm. Pepperidge farm remembers.

Is $30 a good deal for Subscription Service Breakdown?

@  Trpodeca : (08 August 2020 - 06:24 AM)

Oh dear God no. Twitter has changed it's default layout to the terrible new one. Why waste so much space on the left?

@  Steevy Maximus : (07 August 2020 - 08:28 PM)

@Bass X0, yeah, the Joe comic got REALLY solid in the upper 20s to the Cobra Civil War. It's interesting to see how well the Joe comic has aged relative to the cartoon. Where as I feel the opposite is true of Transformers

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 August 2020 - 03:58 PM)

Its so fun watching past TF Conventions.

@  Bass X0 : (07 August 2020 - 02:20 PM)

I've been reading classic 80s G.I. Joe lately. Its still decent even though I don't have any nostalgia towards it.

@  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

I looked for a topic five pages deep and didn't see one. So I thought I'd make it. I figure as much as I've seen it talked about elsewhere around the web and IRL, somebody here must be playing it.

 

I just came back from getting this. I won't be able to play it until I get back home...probably Monday. I haven't played the other 2 Witchers, but I'm told I don't really need to. Not sure what to expect. But given the reviews I've seen, I can't wait to get started. 

 

So...umm...yeah. Discuss!

It's phenomenal. It's the sort of game that makes life hell for other game developers, in my opinion, because it elevates expectation.

I'm a "see and do all the things" kind of guy when it comes to gaming, and the Witcher 3 is loaded with interesting things that divert from the main quest. So, I'm still relatively early in and don't have too much to offer on the story yet.

But good god, Lemon. This game is spectacular.

I've put in over 200 hours and finally brought myself to complete the game earlier today. I feel the story stumbles for several reasons in the last act, but it's a magnificent game.

 

Despite the "you don't HAVE to play the first two games" message I do feel you'll be missing out on a lot if you don't.

ever since the last patch it's been crashing for me consistently. I'm pretty much waiting for a fix of some sort that doesn't involve down clocking my system because apparently that's the only thing people figured out.

what i have played of it seems great. Just.. crashes make it a bit annoying.

I've been loving it so far. It's probably between this and Sunset Overdrive for my favorite strictly new gen game so far.

 

Every diversion feels like it will or has had a satisfying conclusion beyond some exp and a random item which is great.

I just started this tonight. I got to the point where I'm out on the road telling that guy about my "dream." 

 

I seem to be having a problem though. Between the prologue and finding myself in the bedroom, there was an extremely long loading screen. Like, so extreme...the first time I thought it crashed to I restarted the PS4. The second time I just tried to power through it and just kinda checked things out here. 

 

The same thing happened between the training scene and finding myself out on the road...extremely long loading screen. 

 

If this is a known problem, I may just have to continue with my Mass Effect 3 playthrough and put this on the back burner until a fix comes out. Load screens this bad just should not happen. 

 

Shame too. What little I have had a chance to play looks interesting.

Ha, ha. Decided to get the Master Marksman trophy...what a pain. It turns out that the crossbow's hitboxes are REALLY BAD, since an enemy kill with a shot to the head doesn't necessarily register as a headshot.

 

Amusingly, it is presently the rarest Trophy I own:

I finally beat this tuesday. I didnt do everything i should have tho. Things didn't turn out so well for everyone.

 

I def does stumble around the last act. It gets kinda clunky and some of the parts are a bit tedious even. The final Boss fight.. eh... not.. not as epic as I would have hoped. really was mostly drawn out.

 

Still a good game. But not without its flaws.

Toying around with NG+, which came out recently. It's pretty funny to fight lvl 40 Ghouls in the game's first battle, but it's still pretty simple with your gear and abilities.

So, new content went up for grabs on Monday night. If you like this game and are on the fence about buying the Hearts of Stone DLC.... do eet.

Publishers/Developers today are pricing out their DLC at twice what this one costs and give you less than half as much content. The quest leads you down an immensely compelling and ultimately satisfying path, and fascinating things turn into spooky things near the end. It gives you lots of extra diversions, as well. I have done exactly none of them, because the main quest was so meaty. I plan to! It's pretty much a ten (plus, if you count all of the extra quests I haven't even touched yet) hour capsule of stuff that people love about the Witcher, amplified.

Heh Well considering Witcher 3 came out in March or May and Fallout came out in November seems like the awards thing is a moot point. Love both Witcher 3 and Fallout 4 and have beaten both. Though I haven't gotten around to doing 100% of all the achievements on both yet. Waiting on the next DLC for Witcher 3 before I go back to finishing it.

Honest question. I have Witcher 2 and have never managed to get into it. It just felt kinda too dark and serious for my tastes. I've barely made it through the opening castle siege part before losing interest.

But I usually love RPGs and Fantasy games in general (Skyrim was great. It's not the same genre but I just finished Rise of the Tomb Raider and loved that)

I feel like I should get Witcher 3 because everyone says it's beautiful and a great RPG, but I worry it'd be a waste of money since 2 didn't work for me at all.

Thoughts from those who have played? If I couldn't get into 2 is 3 worth trying?
