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?

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.

@  -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

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

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

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

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

i don't go into people's threads that have no relevance to my interests just to be an ass by telling them that their comments and opinions are of no value just because they have no personal interest to me.

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

i think one of us is misunderstanding what the squawkbox is actually for.

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

and what is wrong with that? you respond to me to lessen your own boredom.

@  Bass X0 : (30 July 2020 - 06:05 PM)

I'm asking people if they think they could.

@  Nevermore : (30 July 2020 - 06:05 PM)

Or did you just think of another random question to lessen your boredom?

@  Nevermore : (30 July 2020 - 06:04 PM)

Is this a survey?

Yeah, I really liked the look of the game, and even some of the "revelations" on how much more limited scope of the game doesn't bother me.  But, it doesn't feel like a $60 game, and I can't help but think Sony's promotion of the title and the secrecy didn't end up bolstering hopes to the point the small crew at Hello Games could never hope to provide the game they hyped.

 

Looks a LOT like a Subnautica with space, which looks fun, but again, not $60 worth of fun and I get the feeling a LOT will be disappointed.

A lot of people were expecting more from this game then it was ever going to be. It's not bad, just be aware of what you're paying money for.

I've seen people comment that it might be the new Spore in that respect. Over-hype can kill decent projects.

Frankly I am APPALLED by this game! How dare it call itself No Man's Sky, when there is in fact a huge chunk of male character models all roaming that very sky RIGHT THIS INSTANT!

 

How can you call it No Man's Sky when men are flying in the sky!

 

I demand all the character models be changed to female to fix this horrible oversight!

i've spent a few hours now in the sky.  

 

I enjoy this game.   It's relaxing in a strange way.  I'm rarely attacked, I can wander strange vistas and see amazing sights and put my own creative stamp on things through naming them.  If you all ever see a half barren chunk of stone named Rockfjord, that was my origin planet.  I've since visited it's moon, which I've named Toxic Ito  for it's massive atmospheric poisons.  

 

I am having some trouble though.  I have a constant "disconnected from online server" error at the bottom of my screen and I've had 3 hard crashes.  I've not really lost any progress, but it is annoying to deal with.   Anyone else having a problem?

Just want clarification - why are people invoking Spore like it's hexed?

Spore was a fun game, I had long thought that was a belief shared by many. It wasn't the all-encompassing greatest thing ever, and if it was we'd have no need for other games. But it  scratched a creative itch. The truth is never in the hype, why would anyone ever be swayed by the hype?

 

And no, no connectivity issues here, Rhinox.

The spore curse is that it effectively promised the sky... and well.. fell short. Very short. At least from what I've seen.

Some blowhard went full Peter Molyneux and you believed it, but you've never played it?

Well that encapsulates the current complaints about this game and that one beautifully, thank you!

 

So, I'm still learning languages as I go, and one species is entirely new to me. My data on them indicates they are very hostile, and I'm in an enclosure with one of them. He motions to my multi-tool, seeming desperate. I can't understand him yet, and I'm thinking he's shaking me down, wants to rob me. But you know, spirit of adventure and all that. I give it to him somewhat reluctantly, he happily hands back to me an improved version of it! So take a chance and do something nice. The sheer size of the galaxy is daunting, and small little deeds and interactions like that shrink it down fast.

Also, is anyone else letting others name their planets filthy things, or is it just me?
