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?

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.

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

@  Nevermore : (30 July 2020 - 06:38 PM)

Ransack. That's like another 20 or so.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 July 2020 - 06:18 PM)

"Prowl". There, that's at least fifteen.

@  Nevermore : (30 July 2020 - 06:15 PM)

Or do you want people to spam the Squawkbox with lists of 100 characters?

@  Nevermore : (30 July 2020 - 06:15 PM)

Oky, just one question: If I were to say "Yes, I could", how could you be sure I'm not lying?

@  Bass X0 : (30 July 2020 - 06:08 PM)

i don't go into people's threads that have no relevance to my interests just to be an ass by telling them that their comments and opinions are of no value just because they have no personal interest to me.

@  Bass X0 : (30 July 2020 - 06:06 PM)

i think one of us is misunderstanding what the squawkbox is actually for.

@  Bass X0 : (30 July 2020 - 06:06 PM)

and what is wrong with that? you respond to me to lessen your own boredom.

@  Bass X0 : (30 July 2020 - 06:05 PM)

I'm asking people if they think they could.

@  Nevermore : (30 July 2020 - 06:05 PM)

Or did you just think of another random question to lessen your boredom?

@  Nevermore : (30 July 2020 - 06:04 PM)

Is this a survey?

The revelation that 76 really is just repurposed Fallout 4 has tempered my enthusiasm, even though that it is confirmed to be just Fallout 4 means their "below minimum system requirements" can kiss my ass. I can play my modded to high heaven Fallout 4 without issue, 76 won't be either.

 

It's more how the framework has the potential to be gamed. I'm also not a huge fan of seeing the griefers starting to rear their miserable little heads in MATN's coverage.

 

I've gone from cautiously optimistic to Must Buy to now Wait and See.

Alright, given the scale of the world, and how much resources you need (and scarcity of rarer stuff.) it's DEFINITELY more fun with a friend. But still good on it's own. I wish I could get the VOIP to work reliably: it's awfully heroic to charge in and kill a robot with a hatchet to save the live of another dweller, and the silently walking away with is cool too, but I would much rather be polite.

Picked up a bounty somehow, and was killed for it while I was scavenging for aluminum. I just wanted to make a new gunsight...

hunh.

 

Some dude in a police cap and gasmask killed me tonight. Granted, I had a bounty on me cause I had apparently... done something. I dunno.

 

Either way: I go by Wonko486. Feel free to look me up in game. I'm usually running around with a dude named Mr. Clean79.

Everything was going great, I got the marsupial mutation and was enjoying my mad hops. Then I needed to pop a radaway, the first one since getting mutated. My hops, they are gone.

Not part of the Beta but been watching a ton of it via my YouTubers...

 

Anyone else get the feeling the Overseer is going to end up being the main quest's final big bad? Yeah they're putting out a lot that makes her sympathetic, but she graduated with Honors from the Overseer program...a program that openly has a course about cannibalism. And we know Vault-Tec...

 

All I'm saying is I don't think she's as sympathetic as they're trying very hard to make her.

Me and Dave in some small town whose name I am ignorant of. Despite the gasmask, he blew a good tuba. Surprisingly in tune for 25 years exposed to weather.

Long story short: I am loving the photo mode. I cannot wait for this game to actually drop.

I can't wait to have more poses available for photo mode. Every time I try to get a cool picture of one of my franken-guns, the character lowers it before I get the angle of the camera just right.

Gopher (One of my YouTubers) also experienced what happens when your lose connection to the server. The game keeps running, just refuses to allow YOU to do anything. Folks in his stream confirmed it happens on XBOX too. To quote him: "Game, I want my computer back now..."

You'd have figured a "You've been disconnected" screen and quitting to the title menu is an arcane ritual a series like Fallout could master pretty easily.

My wife's really keen on 76, but for myself I think I'm going to wait a bit before I jump on board. Wait and see how the PC scene shapes up before devoting the money - the prevalence of cheats and Bethesda's response to it.

 

It's not like I don't have plenty else on my plate this month. Curse of the Vampire Coast in 5 days, Crusader Kings II: Holy Fury on the 14th, and Let's Go Pickachu/Evee at the end of the month.

Yeah, my connection has dropped repeatedly while playing: you literally just get a pop up saying that the controls have been disabled. I've not tried anything in those period, but now I'm wondering if they mean the controls in the game, or if they've locked input to the computer...
