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

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 August 2020 - 08:35 PM)

Finished Leon A, and damn, it was quite the nostalgia trip.  I played the original to death, up to unlocking and finishing Tofu.  The new game is a really fun remake, and the Mr X segments were actually a lot better than I had expected.

 

He is not that hard to evade and lure away from where you wanna go, but I would heavily advise taking out all the lickers beforehand.

 

Gonna start Claire B tonight, but dunno how far I will get, as Kingdom Hearts 3 is tomorrow.  Unlike most games I put down for another, I do expect I will be coming back to this for some time.

Most of this game does a great job or bringing back the wonderful environments from the pre rendered games. Dripping in detail, and often telling a story with blood splatters, bodies, debris, wreckage etc. The gas station with Leon was a great start. Lots of details with the product on the shelves, signage, store fixtures, drink coolers and make shift barricades etc. It felt remarkably like a real world gas station.

This all had me super pumped to see the gun shop in a similar way. After leaving the garage you see its barred windows, good start. As soon as you step inside it's super lame though. Other than 2 banners nothing inside makes it really look like a gun shop at all. While the gas station had detailed aisles of snacks, canned food, sundries, cigarettes, magazine racks etc. The gun store is pretty much complete devoid of anything at all. No believable cases, safes, or racks for guns. No firearm or hunting related products. The front of the store is barred. The back is wide open. Seriously there is no door, just a big opening, no roll up door, no tracks for one, no hinges nothing, it was just designed with a gaping hole in the back. This, area was super disappointing and felt really phoned in.

Anyone else have any similar nitpicks?
I finally got rid of that big white box.

Well to be fair, I think if there was a zombie outbreak, the gun shop would be the first thing to be cleared out. I'm honestly surprised we can find anything in it at all.

He's relentless.

He's COMING!!!!!

 

Okay he's not as unsettling as Chris Walker or Eddie Gluskin but he sure as hell beats Marta, the Ustanak and Nemesis there. I'd dare say the Tyrants at the end of Resident Evil Damnation were creepier looking too.

I beat Leon A on standard in 6:33 for a B rank

 

For speed, I decided to go through Clare B on assisted.

 

Guys assisted feels SO much like cheating. Fewer zombies, less damage from bites, zombies go down after 2/3 shots and the auto-aim is broken.

 

I'm honestly to ashamed to finish it.

Finished both paths. Kinda disappointed that the scenario A/B system wasn't intact but the core gameplay is rock solid though I have to admit, it was really like playing the same game twice. Kinda excited for 3make and 8 now because whatever Capcom's been doing lately, it's working.

 

Also, if I can be greedy, a remake of Outbreak would be great now that you don't have to mess around with modems to play online.

Picked up the Switch port for RE4. It's alright so far but I hate how quicktime events use the ZL/ZR buttons instead of the L/R buttons.

It looks great, I played RE7 and RE2 with earphones in, i've always maintained a good soundtrack makes a horror game work and think RE2 could be updated with a fps specific run for PSVR.

I think there is some convoluted way to use your PC to run a fake server so you can still play online. If your interested I think there is info on it at the gamefaqs messageboard for the game.

Last I heard it only works for the Japanese version of the game, or is basically just a pain in the ass to actually get working.

 

I don't even have copies of the games at the moment so I haven't really looked into it. It'd just be so much easier if we got some ports. I'd even take digital only.

Yeah. Loved the concept but faffing around with modems was a bitch so I played with the CPU all throughout. Now that internet connectivity is so accessible and faith in the franchise renewed, I think it's the best time for an Outbreak-style game.

Oh I would love a re release. Merge file 1 and 2 into one game. Add matchmaking and playlists. Allow voice chat, but keep proximity based chat volume as an option.

Even better would be a file 3 that's. More modern, but keeps the same spirit as the original. Properly done, I think it could be a very popular streaming title, which usually translates to sales.
