It's an annoying thing to have happen in any game. I'm hoping they actually finish releasing all the story mode parts before 3 comes out.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 06:24 AM)

Ahh. Hadn't played that in a long time.. Since before the PVP I think.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 04:33 AM)

Kingdom Hearts Union Cross. Specifically the PVP fights.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 04:31 AM)

What game PennPenn

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 03:13 AM)

Man, I love it when you've got limited attempts at something in a game, said game crashes at the end of the thing, so you lose the attempt but don't get any credit.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 08:44 PM)

I know. I'm back to the classic purple for the first time since the comic theme was introduced.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 08:32 PM)

Alright thanks, gonna be weird without the speech bubble boxes but I'll manage.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 07:59 PM)

Nope, ongoing problem for a bunch of us. The mods know, so... just hunker down and wait. In the mean time: changing themes will sort it out for a bit. Only the comic theme is affected.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 05:36 PM)

They've made a PS4 version of Final Fantasy 15 Pocket Edition. For those keeping score, it's the PS4 version of a smartphone version of a PS4 game.

Or just a set of arms and shoulder cannons that combined Legends Godbomber with CW Optimus.

@  RichardT1977 : (03 September 2018 - 07:10 PM)

I still wish someone would make an upgrade kit for Combiner Wars Optimus that transformed from a trailer to a set of limbs with Powermaster shoulder cannons...

Just got done watching the Carnage Vs. Lucy episode of Death Battle, I saw that the next episode, which will be released September 3 on the Screw Attack site, and onto Youtube on the 5th, will feature Optimus Prime duking it out against RX-78-2 Gundam. 

No matter who loses, this will be guaranteed to hit the childhood.

I am not a fan of this matchup. The scale skews things horribly in favor of the Gundam.

But that's always been a major problem with trying to work Transformers into scenarios like this. Most of them aren't big enough to hang with city stomper Mecha like Gundam, Jaegers, or Evengelions. But they're also too big to throw against normal human sized foes.

That said, while the Gundam has size, firepower, flight, and armour made of magic BS space metal, Optimus has 6 million years of combat and tactical experience, which includes taking down foes like Devastator. So maybe it won't be as much of a curb stomp as we think it will be.

I think Optimus stands a better chance against the RX-78 than Starscream had against Rainbow Dash. Just saying.

Optimus should take this if it's only the RX-78.

 

Then again, Death Battle's never been too consistent making sense.

So, what are they gonna do for his stats? Take all of his feats from the cartoon, Marvel, Dreamwave, IDW, manga, video games, storybooks, etc. and put them in a blender to create a compromised set of stats from all the different versions, or just pick one version and go with that one's feats?

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

I wouldn't say either is a knock off the other since Death Battle uses feats and mathematical-calculated statistics to determine its winners, while Super Power Beat Down just goes with popular fan votes.

There's less size difference between Optimus Prime and a Gundam than there is between a Gundam and a Jaeger, though.

 

There's no real shortage of more similar-in-size opponents for either, though.

 

 

That said, while the Gundam has size, firepower, flight, and armour made of magic BS space metal, Optimus has 6 million years of combat and tactical experience, which includes taking down foes like Devastator. So maybe it won't be as much of a curb stomp as we think it will be.

The RX-78-2 can't fly. Not that it would need to.

Part of me kinda hopes that someone on the Death battle staff stumbles across Alternity fiction while doing the research.
Technically, that's your composite Prime right there......who is a God via multidimensional gestalt consciousness.

Eventually MS are created using advanced nanomachines and sentient AI. Possessing the ability to reconfigure themselves on a cellular level, these same MS eventually opt to leave their bulky bodies and take on ones the size of a human. In turn they inherit Earth after their creators pass.

Forging their own history, they eventually achieve power equal to that of a god and in this form the size of solar systems.

Death Battle will generally give the most ridiculous ending imaginable.

 

So Amuro and his Gundam wil be erased from existence when Alternity Convoy shoots through the timeline and kills Tem Ray 20 years in the past.

I also wouldn't call either a knock off, I'm sure there's more then these two, but Deathbattle started in 2010 and Super Power Beat Down in 2012.

 

 

I wonder how this will go, Optimus is either a seasoned leader and skilled fighter, or a god-like perfect warrior who's only equal is Megatron.

 

Also the Gundam is 18 meters tall and Optimus varies a lot, maybe he'll mass shift to equal size or they'll just pick the closest size.

According to scale chart, Optimus is 36 feet/11 meters tall:

EDIT:
Looking at the teaser for the battle:

They either shrunk Gundam or they made up Primes size along with his design...
