@  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

So E3 started but its already off to a bad start with Sony being a no show and I have flat given up on Microsoft

I don't think Id buy an XB1 for even 99 bucks preloaded with Halo Infinite at this point 

EA already did there thing and the Star Wars game looks... BORING AS HELL...

 

So lets hope there some bright spots in the coming days

Given who started this thread, I wasn't sure if the thread title was intentional or not. :p

 

Frankly, I'm waiting on Nintendo.  The past 5 years have really soured me on mainstream AAA gaming, with the egregious load times, money pinching, and misleading functionality (the PS4 is certainly NOT plug and play).  But Nintendo's streamlined experience has really helped me get back into semi-regular game playing, even in spite of the peculiarities on Nintendo's end and sometimes questionable releases.

I thought the Star Wars game looked just fine.

 

Of course it'd be a thousand times better if it was Force Unleashed 3, but it looks like a decent 3rd person platformer so far.

Well then I guess you don't want Sega Ages, The Genesis collection, the Castlevania collection... etc. etc.

 

Those collections are why the VC doesn't exist anymore.

Which is why it looks like a decent game to me.

 

However it's not Starkiller, and the reigned in force powers keep it from being amazing.

 

Pretty much, the force powers in both Unleashed games are what I wish the force WAS like. It looked awesome, it played awesome. (Okay to be fair both games had flaws, but I loved em anyway) And I really liked Starkiller.

 

This new game though, is probably the best I could hope for now a days.

Wait why would Sega Ages or the collections not exists? you can have both One would be the packaged deal with extras and one would be the vanilla version or just skip those few collections and pump out whats not covered in them in a true Virtual console put a 7.99-9.99 price tag on NES,SNES, N64 games and the Switch would just print money

It's my experience that those in high corporate/upper management have no clue how it actually works, yet feel they have it all figured out.

 

If I had to guess, their reasoning is: "If all these games were on the virtual console, no one would have any need of buying these expensive collection systems we're bringing out! Therefore we must make sure the collection is the only way to get said games! Then people will HAVE to buy! We're so smart!"

Actually, it's probably just a means to monetize the titles they already own, but aren't otherwise selling. They get to justify both the collection AND a higher price per title, as well as make at least a little coin of IP's that wouldn't move on their own.

 

Edit: The thing I actually came in here to say: I lost interest in the spectacle of e3 years ago. It's a neat premise, but it's lackluster these days. Big friggen shows over rehashed crap or absolutely nothing isn't worth the attention. I am interested in the bethesda showcase at 5.30, but I'm not even going to watch it, I'm going to read the abbreviated tomorrow.

Basicly this.. These companies go "Why put this on a VC When we can sell these ourselves."

I mean really, is buying a Sega Ages game any real different then a sega vc game?

That... was a show? I guess?

 

Sat through the whole thing just to find out that Halo is the only game I'm remotely interested in and it won't be out until next year and only on a new console.

 

Kind of liked the Lego Forza gameplay, but racing games aren't my thing, so, eh.

Ya, I can't say there was anything grabbing again this year. I want to see the Halo story continue but I still haven't played 5 yet. And nice announcing a new console with lots of hype and not much else to show. I mean slated for Holiday 2020 and no floor model to show off. Does it have a disc drive? Are any other games besides Halo coming? And does anyone think it's going to still be named Project Scarlett at launch?

There wasn't a lot there for me. Star Wars is cool and my wife loved the Force Unleashed games so we'll likely be getting that. A lot of the smaller indie type games looked interesting/fun/pretty. I'll likely be up for the full Lego Star Wars saga.

Don't care about Halo and there's not enough about Elden Ring to care or not yet.

I'm considering whether the Ultimate game pass would be worth it at today's $1 price. Leaning towards probably for some folks but likely not for me given how rarely I get to play nowadays.
