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)

I got really good at the original back in the day, but the learning curve was steep.

The "Staaaaaars..." would incite panic.

 

So I am sad that they changed the "Staaaaars" delivery not for the better.

 

Currently playing RE2 remake - they really amped up the difficulty.  Barring a lucky critical headshot, zombies take way too much pepper to kill, and you just end up trying to dodge them.  Oh, Leon - upgrading that Matilda is going to do nothing for you, buddy.

The preview had hunters in it.  Not having played RE3 for ~20 years, I don't remember too much about the film.

Not sure if my Dreamcast memory inserts would even work after all this time.  Pretty sure those batteries are D-E-D dead.

I'm just glad it's got Hunters at all. They've always been my favorite RE monster.

 

I honestly can't remember the other monsters in the game. Like I barely remember a worm creature you fight.

 

I mostly just remember "You know who" because how do you FORGET him?

Never played a Resident Evil game before but picked this up because I was digging the RE stuff in Teppen. Having a lot of fun. Haven't wet myself yet but I'm sure there'll be a jump scare that does the job sooner or later.

Watched some dude play RE7 on YouTube. It was interesting but I'm glad it's not what I chose as my first game in the series. Police station zombies seem like a much more comfortable starting point than squooshy monsters and crazy girlfriends. Could pretty happily live the rest of my life never seeing another Licker though. Those guys do not want to go down.

Picked Leon first but kind of regret it - Claire is very nicely animated, she has some really subtle facial acting going on in the cutscenes. Amazing technology.

So recent news confirms Hunter Gamas and the Drain Deimos are in the game.

 

Also it's confirmed we're getting a demo soon.

 

Just... please none of this 1-shot time limit bullshit. Just let me enjoy the damn demo. Stop putting stupid restrictions on them.

GOOD NEWS EVERYONE!

 

The RE3 Remake Demo is out AND THERE IS NO TIME LIMIT OR 1 TIME ONLY BULLSHIT!

 

You can play it as many times as you want! Find all the hidden dolls! (I've only found half)

 

The Xbox one was up this morning so I played it first, and then the PS4 one when it was available at 1pm.

 

For whatever reason the xbox controls feel a bit looser. Was much harder to aim. On the PS4 I had no issues.

 

Gives you a nice small taste of how the game will be, and was pretty fun. I'm not entirely certain, but I FEEL it took a few less bullets to kill zombies. However by few I mean one or two less.

So far the only negative things I've heard are all things that seem to be missing the point or are comparing it to the previous remake.

 

Like it's more action oriented. No shit, so was the original version.

 

It's shorter then RE2 remake. Again no shit, so was the original version.

 

Can't say much on what's taken out as I'm still trying to play through the original with a friend after having not messed with it since something like 2000. So yeah about 20 years ago.

 

I am a bit sad:

I'm probably not a huge way through, but Nemesis has been on my ass constantly and he is a hundred times more terrifying than the big dude in RE2. I hardly ever saw him in the police station and I didn't once need to try to fight him or slow him down. And he was wearing a stupid hat so it was hard to take him seriously. So far I'm finding 3 to be dramatically more tense and frightening. I didn't like the spiders and I don't need the headcrabs either.

It hasn't been full of "collect seven golden monkeys to activate a machine left in the basement by Leonardo Da Vinci" like RE2, but there's still plenty of more pedestrian "puzzles" - get these items to open these doors, find a way to get this thing from here to here. I haven't played the original so I won't miss anything that's been removed.

Being new to the franchise, I didn't know I'd be revisiting people and places from RE2, prior to Leon and Claire's arrival. It makes for a powerful narrative.
