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)

KUP!

@  Sabrblade : (01 August 2020 - 04:58 PM)

Just some thoughts on Devil Breakers. Not explicit ranking but broad categorizing.

High

Gerbera: Both versions. I value the Gerberas extremely highly for their aerial mobility, to the point I think it makes up for their lackluster Break Ages. I never use the Stamen Ray in normal combat since it leaves you stationary for so long, and the Petal Ray is pretty circumstantial. It kinda feels like the basic technique is too valuable to lose in exchange for either a lot of the time.

Punch Line: Great for harassment and singular enemy control. Jet Gadget is a bit gimmicky but fun (love the skate course for it in 15), and Boost Knuckle is extremely powerful without needing much setup.

Ragtime: While I do find the basic technique a bit hard to use (I still haven't plumbed its full depths either), its Break Age is one of the most overtly powerful abilities in the game. One of the safest and most reliable ways for Nero to dispose of Furies too, which was a Godsend on HaH.

 

High-Mid

 

Overture: Simplicity personified. A very straightforward, widely applicable attack that's good for deflects and staggering enemies. I don't use the Break Age that often, but in general the Overture is great as a no-frills weapon to slip into combos.

 

Mid

 

Buster: Ridiculously powerful, even out-stripping the Devil Bringer with ease. I only take it for specific purpose though (bosses, some elite enemies), since for normal battles and style building the Devil Bringer grab you can use without cost is sufficient.

Tomboy: It's a lot of fun but the window for being broken because you got hit using it is so large.

 

Mid-Low

 

Rawhide: The basic AOE doesn't have as much reach as I'd like, the Wire Snatch upgrade is the definition of circumstantial, and the Break Age takes setup to get proper use out of.

 

Low

Helter Skelter: Just awful, really. Slow to use, very long animation that leaves you extremely vulnerable.

Sweet Surrender, Pasta Breaker, Mega Buster: Just gimmicks.

Bunch of cool tech, and a reminder that Royal Guard is still ridiculous.

Just got DMC5 as a sort of early Easter present. From Amazon so i got the alternate costumes too. The game is awesome, obviously.

Making Nico a blonde for her alternate was interesting and i kinda prefer Neros alternate dark hair/white outfit/black weapons combo.

I've cooled on 5 a lot faster than I ever did on 4, on any of my three go-arounds (360, PC, SE). I've only given Bloody Palace a couple of goes with each character. A large part of it is that I don't find enemy and boss designs at all interesting, and the 'realistic' filter over everything makes me feel flumphy. I'm not a huge fan of Dante's weapons either.

Wow, why so? I'd consider it my favorite Dante arsenal out of the existing games.

 

That said I do run the Sparda in addition to the DSD, just for access to Roundtrip and whatnot.

3 is still my fave but I'd have to put five as a second. I couldn't stand playing 4's palace and higher difficulties for too long because of the awful enemy design that were either complete pushovers or the fish and the electric lizards.

 

That said, I'm not a fan of the realistic look either but it's passable.

The weapons just lack punch or flow for me; DSD is the best, but it's just Rebellion/Sparda with the fancier moves removed or harder to execute; Cerberus ice has no range and feels awful for me, while fire is good, but requires SM style; Cavaliere is great against groups of easily staggered guys, but outside of that it's got too much wind up and down; Balrog just doens't have the flow that Beowulf or Gilgamesh did, and although it's probably for the best, I miss Distorted Real Impact.

 

And it's not just Dante that I'm down on, I love V and Nero feels exactly the same as in 4, although I think Ex-Act is a little more forgiving now, so it's not just the new moveset. Maybe it's the amount of time I put into 4 that I'm just so used to its weapons and enemies.

Vergil bullying is a fine art, but using Quadruple S just to i-frame through Judgment Cuts is so swag I laughed out loud.
