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

Ransack. That's like another 20 or so.

I've kept my No Man's Sky save state. It's just I'm such a wanderer I've yet to set down any real roots. I tend to just build enough infrastructure on interesting planets to access them via a Star Portal...and then never go back to them ever again.

I find the planet I've been looking for since starting the game, and the devs drop THIS:

Holy hug.

 

I mean, it makes sense. The species of reality abandoned dirt side life in favour of operating out of their fleets and space stations. There are advantages to being mobile when dealing with sentinels, and lets face it: each other.

 

It would also make sense to ramp up the abandoned stuff.

 

Long story short: that looked awesome, and I love that no man's sky became one of the few games I never uninstall.

So I boot up the game to lay down basic infrastructure so I can go start looking for some of this Desolation content. Turns out the update also changes some aspects of world generation.

In all seriousness, maybe it's because it was "Baby's First Freighter", they aren't bad. Atmosphere is brilliant, but the combat is pretty meh. Granted all I had to fight were automated security systems. It costs 5 million to get the coordinates to one (or you get one free, I assume per week, on the Anomaly). Each system has exactly ONE abandoned freighter. You cannot save while on the freighter.

 

5 mil seems steep, but you'll walk out with plenty of salvage that will more than likely recoup the cost. Turning info into Guild Reps nets you racial standing, turning info into the Scrap Dealer you buy the code for nets you Nanites.

 

Biggest thing you need is Cold resistance. There are portable heaters scattered around to let you rebuild your basic resist, but more cold resist (and the Ion Batteries/Dioxite to keep that resist up), the better.

 

EDIT: Keep in mind, this is coming from someone with all Exosuit upgrades/S Class Technology and a Class A Multi-tool with S Class Upgrades.

So not sure if it was a happy accident, but I did an Abandoned Freighter mission in a system with an Atlas Terminal. The story of that freighter revolved around observing said Atlas Terminal. Was a neat little bit of world building.

 

Also got to deal with something other than automated security. The same kind of nameless horrors you face when picking up Whispering Eggs. They've been significantly depowered from their planetside counterparts, but it's very Dead Space Necromorph stuff.

 

Also did some experimenting with the rewards. You can sell the data you get from Freighters on the Galactic Market for peanuts. Also don't get Freighter Technology from Engineering Consoles. For whatever reason, you can't actually install said technology in Freighter Technology tabs, meaning you're always using up cargo slots. Meanwhile, if you opt for the portable bulkhead - which is to expand your freighter's cargo capacity...I'm certain this has to be a bug. But it let me unlock ALL the slots for the Freighter. I went from a 33 slot Freighter to a 42 slot.
