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?

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.

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

Woot! Dragon Quest XI: Echoes of an Elusive Age was announced about 20 minutes before my daughter was born, so I am a little late posting this, but I am stoked to see an official announcement. 

 

 

Anyone else excted to see a new main line numbered Dragon Quest game come to consoles for the first time in 13 years!

Really hoping we get a good voice cast. VIII so far has been the only one other than the original to really hook me, and a lot of it was do to the vocals from each of the characters.... well except the hero :D

They did a good job with the voice cast on the Heroes games, so I am hopeful that this will be just as good!

Great news! I'm still torn on DQX. On the one hand, I hate that it didn't arrive here. On the other hand, FFXI consumed so much of my time that I really don't want to get sucked into another MMORPG.

 

I'm curious about which version(s) will be localized. I'm not sure which one(s) I want more. I want to immediately go with the console version, just for the presentation and big screen experience. I actually really like being able to play the whole series on 3DS though, and that split screen 3D/2D overhead aspect is something I really appreciate.

That's something I have a bit of a bone to pick with with DQX, and FFXI and XIV. It just annoys me that these MMO's are part of the main line of games.I'd wish they had kept them as the start of a new Online series of numberings instead of in the main series. What happens one day when the servers get shut down for DQX or FFXI. You won't be able to go back and play them again. So if you wanted to play the full series there will be one or two that just won't be possible some day.

I'm also not a fan of MMOs as main-series entries for DQ or FF. Dragon Quest XI looks wonderful, though. I really hope we get the 3DS version in NA.

There's not really a "one day" to it. As poorly received as FFXIV was on launch (I did play it then, and it really was disappointing), it appears to have ended up with a really neat storyline and concluding event. Unfortunately, there's no way to ever play through that scenario again following the shutdown and relaunch. That's the biggest thing aside from lack of time that's helped me not get back into XIV. I know there's a significant chunk of content to the game that's simply unplayable. Not being able to experience the full story helps keep me from getting invested into the idea of playing it again going forward.

I can't imagine them not bringing over both the PS4 and 3DS versions. Heck, we will probably get a version for the switch if they can get the kinks worked out on it.

So...the good news is that Dragon Quest XI is coming out September 4 on the PS4.  It'll even have voice acting and a couple of improvements over the Japanese version.

 

Bad news is no 3DS version (boo!).  And the Switch version won't be out for a long while.

Yeah, I am kind of surprised that the 3DS version isn't being brought over. Still, just a little over 5 months until I finally get to play DQ11!

Bleh. I was uncertain whether I wanted to go with the 3DS version or the Switch version. I haven't picked up a PS4 yet, and it doesn't look to be coming in the near future with payments for my wife's student loans starting up last month. Guess I'll just have to wait and hope they don't cancel the Switch version.

I wasn't even sure which version I'd prefer, but the 3DS one had a more interesting visual gimmick.  Would have been nice to be able to choose.

The last couple DQ games I played were the most recent ones for the 3DS. I never did finish either of them before getting the Switch and retiring the 3DS. So a new mainline game that's not an MMO will be nice to get into.

I think the last one I actually finished was IX...that was the DS one with the train, right? Wow! I just said DS instead of 3DS. I didn't realize it had been that long!

DQ7 and DQ8 were remastered and released on the 3DS in the last couple of years. DQXI has a 3DS version, but it looks like it will only be coming out in Japan. Too bad as it had a neat gimmick where the Bottom Screen was a SNES version of the game and the top screen was the 3DS version of the same game.

Well, the Ps4 has 3 other great Dragon Quest games, so I would highly recommend getting a PS4 for those alone.
