@  SG Roadbuster : (08 August 2020 - 01:53 PM)

@Nevermore yes.

@  Nevermore : (08 August 2020 - 09:11 AM)

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 won't lie to you guys, I want that TMNT machine! I was hoping that the other one would have the 4 player X-Men, but since it is just the fighter games, I'll pass on that one.

These guys had a booth at E3. I ended up playing a real vintage Galaga, then playing the Arcade1Up versions about an hour later, and I have to say the 2/3-size version was quite nice and an excellent substitute for the "real thing." The buttons and joystick felt solid, and the joystick was locked in to only go left-right as it should for Galaga.

 

I also tried the tabletop and wall-mount versions. The tabletop one actually still seemed sturdy, with satisfying controls, but the flat wall-mounts seemed like they had crappy screens--it was impossible to get a good angle unless it was mounted right at eye-level, which seems very inconvenient. I did notice some glitches--the trackball in the tabletop Centipede barely worked, and the wall-mount Pac-Man had a black ghost, but buying a 40-year-old vintage machine would come with those kind of risks as well.

 

I asked the reps about Ms. Pac-Man, which they said they were working to get. I also asked if there were options in the games to change settings, like the dipswitches in vintage arcade games that would start you with extra lives and change bonus values and such, and they didn't really know. If they do put out a Ms. Pac-Man, with the option to speed it up (which pretty much every extant vintage machine uses, but Namco Museum compilations never allow), then I'll probably be in for one.

I know the Mortal Kombat port has the dip switch options at least.  Not sure about any other machine.

 

With X-Men Arcade (the 4 player beat-em up), problems I foresee with ever doing that one is the two screens (yes there was also a 1 screen version) and what to put on the machine besides that.  I believe every other machine has at least two games on with it.  I don't think there is another Konami Marvel arcade game to throw on there.

The four player version was a single screen, only the large six player version was two screens.

 

Besides TMNT 1 and 2, there was Simpsons, Sunset riders, and Avengers that used that same format, so they could use one of those with X-men if they wanted. Avengers would be the best match since they are both marvel super hero beat em up games. That would give Sunset riders to Simpsons when that game eventually comes out.

I like the idea of table-top Arcade1Up's, but who decided on that yellow for Pac-Man? I'd much rather have a more authentic(-ish) black.

I was at Disney World in 1999 and I sat down with $10 to play through the whole game.  It was glorious (even if I sucked HARD at the lightsaber portions).

 

My hope would be a mixed set with Sega's Star Wars Trilogy Arcade and their version of the Pod Racer game.  Heck, if EA weren't such draconian jerks, maybe we could have gotten such a package on consoles.

Wow! I was there at the same time in July of 99 and I played through that game there too! Small world!

That was the game that i was hoping for too. I played through it about two years ago at the local mall before the arcade closed, and it was fun.

Since we were talking TMNT arcade here, I think I'll put this here.

I just happened to notice this. That television truck has the call letters KBLA.

1. TMNT takes place in New York. This is well known. Call letters beginning in K are west coast call letters. Any station in New York would start with a 'W'.

2. I actually googled KBLA. There actually is a radio (not television) station with those call letters...in Santa Monica.

So Wednesday evening, I stopped by wal-mart on the way home from work. I was taking my time and walking through the electronics section, when I hear the familiar sounds of Galaga. There, two rows over, they have an aisle with the arcade 1UP games with a very worn Galaga 1up machine, and surrounding it are three 20 year olds trying to play it. I watch them play for a minute, and after the one guy finally loses on stage two, he turns to me and says, "Do you think that you can beat the high score?"

 

At that exact moment, Over the Walmart speakers, I swear that eye of the tiger starts playing, and I am like, "Yeah, I got this."

 

Turns out that the high score was actually pretty dang high, but I almost beat it on my first try. And I got all the way to level 7 which isn't that bad considering I haven't played galaga in years.

 

It was a great moment.
