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.

@Nevermore So... you're saying you didn't like DC Versus Marvel/Marvel Versus DC?

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?

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.

@  -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

@  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)

@  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)

Meh, more robots and mutants for me to shoot. I am having genuine fun with this: It's fallout, but multiplayer. My friends are standing right there, fighting with me. I love it.

 

The technical side though is pissing me off. I'm not talking about the game engine, I mean the launcher. First the deletion bug, NOW it's not getting a decent rate yet still monopolizing my entire internet connection. I missed the beta session today due to work, but would have missed it anyway because I was completely unable to pull down the 30 gig hugging patch (that's not a patch, and that an entire other game. God damnit bethesda. Seriously?), and I'm probably going to miss the thursday session too since same problem.

 

Oh, and I've already modded it! Ha, chill, I'm not a griefer or nothing, I was perusing the INI files, trying to find a way to turn off godrays, and found the section for pipboy colour. I changed the values to reflect the colour white: and about doubled the intensity of the pipboy flashlight. Upside: my game also shows everyone elses pipboy in the same colour. So when you're in a group, it's brighter at night for you, and easier to find your friends. I suspect it will eventually be an option in game, and more than likely fixed with the last patch.

So it's more of a "give it a bit to work out the bugs and for people to cut off the more pressing warts" thing than a "Behold this inglorious garbage fire we cobbled together" thing?

I'm just going to wait to see how prevalent cheating is in game. The fact you can pretty much edit ini files with impunity and the server doesn't care has me concerned.

I want to play. So very badly. Can't. Still 30 odd hours on the patch download. The hugging launcher is running at about 200 kbps and monopolizing the entire internet connection to do it. It's an known problem and beth ain't done SHIT. I suspect because the majority having the problem aren't in the US.

I think I'll wait a few weeks before grabbing the game, give it a bit of time to work out some more kinks. I can play some Lets Go Eevee in the meantime, I suppose.

(still gonna get the game, bugs be damned. I'm in it for the exploration anyway)

Okay, so... the game bills itself with "all the people you met are actual players" or something to that effect.

 

That means the dev don't think super mutants and scorched are people.

Alright, so I'm enjoying the item modification system on 76. You don't know how to do everything right off the bat, only being barred from building by your perks. You learn stuff as you break things down, or buy/find schematics. Thankfully, I rock a hunting rifle, and the scorched carry them in spades. Same with the pump shotgun. I've worked out a LOT of rifle mods, and have a pretty kick ass weapon despite it being only level 10. Between my engaging at range, and the sneak damage bonus... well...

 

I did it again.

Alright, learned something today. Well, technically last night but CONFIRMED it today. There are events in the world at large: while the number of enemies in these events multiply based on how many people are participating, the LEVEL of the enemies is determined (apparently.) by the level of the person who first enters or triggers the event.

 

I was in morgantown at mama dolce's for the feed the people event: two level sixes were there first. I roll in at 14 with a NICE shotgun. I blew through most of my ammo, but was one shotting everything because they were leveled between 1-6. I then was in the right place at the right time to do the vertidrone event at morgantown airport, and I did it alone. About 5-6 scorched per wave, and all the scorched were levelled 6-10. Got me a sledgehammer!

 

So yeah, don't know how useful that information will be, but there we are.

Alright, you win so far. That is awesome.

 

In unrelated news: I found a suit of power armor tonight. I was roaming around beckley with my boy dave, and I happened across it outside the barricades. It was all shiny and perfect and had two pieces of t-45 armor on it I could not use. Not high enough level yet, but the frame is awesome. And you can compress it into your inventory and it only weighs ten pounds!
