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?

@  Darth Gonzo : (03 August 2020 - 09:57 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)

@  -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

So, uh, Dante's battle theme came out.

 

 

Setting aside my opinion of the band, I still really don't care for it. Deathcore, or whatever you want to classify this as, really isn't my thing and the vocals are atrocious. Even the mixing of the song seems pretty bad. Can't hear the guitars, the drums are basically silent, and the vocals are a bit too loud. If they passed on bring Shootie back, why not stick with Combichrist? They did well with DmC.

Okay, I was planning on getting it already, but the mega buster definitely makes me more eager.

 

I'm wondering about the chronology of the trailer scenes, now.  I figured that Dante returned from Hell over the course of the game, and I actually thought that the scene where he got a new client would take place at the end of the game, but then the Kylo Ren-looking guy walked in, and apparently he's the third playable character.

 

Looks like the Majin Devil Trigger is the standard now, or at least his standard form kept the wings.  Which fold into a coat.  So silly, so cool, and I wonder if the makers were thinking of Gargoyles when they came up with it.


Unfortunately, fools are often planproof.

Okay, tracked down "subhuman" Dante's theme.

 

The music itself isn't too bad, but yeah the singer isn't very good, and with the information of what the singer has done, I'm kinda hoping they do something else for the theme.

Summary of Game WATCH Article (Style switching Confirmed!)
renderTimingPixel.png

Link to the article: https://game.watch.impress.co.jp/

I don't have time to do a full translation right now so I'll try to just summarize all the new info.

  • There will be more weapons for Dante than those shown in the trailer.

  • Balrog's Blow mode will have increased damage with each punch.

  • It's possible to customize the order of weapon switching.

  • Real-time style switching is confirmed. (Royalguard and Swordmaster are mentioned in the article)

Other minor tidbits
  • Balrog is named after the character of the same name in Street Fighter.

  • Dante's head had to be made smaller than the original concept art due to the game's over-the-shoulder camera.

  • During development, Cavaliere was originally intended to be given to Nero by someone. The designer surprised everyone with the idea of using a motorcycle as a weapon after being asked to design a new devil arm.

  • Correcting this google translation someone posted: Majin Dante (魔人ダンテ) is indeed mentioned, but that's what the demon form is called in Japanese. No mention of Majin Form (真魔人Shin-Majin) from DMC2 returning.

EDIT: More info from this Dengeki article
  • There will be a boss with the word Angelo in its name.

  • 4 styles from previous DMC titles are confirmed. Rainstorm is confirmed to return.

Just FYI, that first Dante gameplay video skips the cutscene before the boss fight but shows the one after, which might be why it got removed from IGN.

 

The more I watch of Dante in this, the more I think that Dante's character in the second game is now part of his intended character arc.  The games have never really hid the fact that Dante is dealing with some major trauma from all the crap that's happened to him.  I don't think that I'd go as far as saying that his fun-loving aspects are just an act, but it's kinda telling that the only time he really lightened up in 2 was when he was fighting, and that seems to be the case in this game, too.  There's points where Dante is between fights and just seems...  weary.  And he's gone from using rigged coin flips as an excuse to help people to actively avoiding his own allies.

 

Going in chronological order, his parents were killed in childhood, his brother killed masses of humans in a bid for power, dropped into hell rather than let Dante save him, got lead into trap by a woman that looked like his mother, fought his mind controlled brother, who then exploded, then the demon clone of his mother seemingly died, then he encountered his dead brother's previously unmentioned son, which couldn't have brought up good memories.

 

With all that, the real question is whether he decided to become a coin-flipping weirdo before or after trying to drink himself to death.

 

Hmmn.  The IGN footage showed Dante fight a miniboss wearing Nelo Angelo armor.  I don't think that Vergil has gotten any less dead recently, but it looks like at least one of the factions is using Mundus' old gear.

Enh.  I'm not surprised that people keep clamoring for his return, but nothing has even hinted at a resurrection.  I can't remember whether the Order using parts of Vergil's corpse to turn people into hybrids was from something official or just a rumor, but the Sparda cultists that had his old sword didn't try to bring him back.

 

There is a theory that Vergil is the guy that ripped off Nero's arm, but I haven't found it even kinda convincing.  At least that theory remembered that Vergil was a bad guy in life, something that a lot of fans seem to gloss over.

I think there's pretty strong circumstantial evidence about the mysterious visitor who took the Devil Bringer. Have you seen the cutscenes from the playtester leak? There's some interesting stuff there but if you're trying to avoid details like that then I don't want to spoil. The sudden reveal of Nelo Angelo enemies is a neat twist, or at least keeps us guessing. I'm interested to see how it ultimately plays out.

And apparently Capcom are putting in microtransactions tied to orbs and levelling. Basically, you can buy more orbs to buy more skills faster. This has the potential to be really irritating if they decide to push up the prices for the most desirable and effective skills as an incentive to make people spend rewl cash so they can skip grinding.

Everything elde about the game sounds utterly awesome though!

It's going to be the exact same thing as they had in DMC4SE. Which means it's going to be completely and utterly ignorable and you don't have to worry about it. Also apparently the game so far hands out orbs by the bucket full.
