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?

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

Welp your next gen PS4 pro is now obsolete Reveil

 

What we know and what we want?

 

So Sony has announced to the world publicly the PS5 with known hardware of using SSD to store and retrieve date making load times a lot less of an issue 4 and 8k compatibility and a focus on Ray Tracing

 

What I think is this Sony might be jumping the gun a bit in its rollout but in doing so will be the first in next the line of consoles and with the advent of the midlife pro versions being the thing now it thinks this is the way forward.

 

I did get a bit more play out of my PS4 then my PS3 23 games on the PS3 and 29 on the PS4 but at the start of the PS4 life there was a distinct lack of variety compared to the PS3 or PS2 but its gotten a bit better now

 

So Sony by now you know my rule there must be 5 games on your platform before I buy it so get to work

I was wondering why you brought this up as this is all stuff we knew months ago. Then I saw this IGN video where they talk about the PS5 announcement today:

 

 

Neat that it has a UHD drive (Finally!) and that installs are mandatory. It is definitely on my list for next holiday season.

They've really got to let you preload. Even on non-digital purchases.

 

Buying a game and having to wait 3+ hours for patches is bullcrap.

I'll wait and see.  I haven't been a fan of where the industry has treaded this past generation, and my suspicion is that next year's launch will be a repeat of the PS4 launch where we'll see couple token "next gen" titles out to show off tech, but a majority of the content with be "same stuff on the PS4, but prettier".

They also need to let you start playing before the entire game is downloaded/installed. I know they dabbled in offering that this gen, but all I ever heard about it was that publishers kept abusing it, pretending the game was ready to play when literally all you could do was browse the menu until the whole rest of the game was on the hard drive. Why is it so damn hard to just make that feature work? Steam tried it too, ages ago, and got rid of it because reasons and hasn't even touched the idea since.

That doesn't surprise me.  Games don't really store data in a chapter by chapter basis, and that sounds like a poor way to store it.


Unfortunately, fools are often planproof.

Apparently the PS5 is going to use triple layer 100GB UHD discs and double as a 4K blu-ray player, which is fantastic news for the format. The Playstation 3 also functioning as a blu-ray player really did good things for the proliferation of that format in homes that may not have had it so early otherwise. Hopefully the release of catalog titles on UHD really ramps up after the PS5 sales start rolling in.

Yeah, It will be nice, but most of the Xbox Ones sold in the past three years have had them in it. Every Xbox One S or X comes standard with the format. Heck, stand alone players aren't that expensive anymore either. I am shocked that the PS4 Pro didn't have it. 

 

The format really is pretty awesome. Region free, insane quality, HDR, and the black cases with silver logos look cool.

Yeah, I am going to have to say that it won't. The entire architecture of the PS3 is way too different from the PS4 and PS5. You might be able to get a PS1 and PS2 emulator on it, but I doubt that they will emulate the PS3.

At this point ps1 support should be baked into every new PlayStation system. Heck, the PlayStation classic is considerably less powerful than the ps3, yet it can do it. Only reason not to is possible piracy concerns.

Yes, because Sony is just raking in the money on those 25 year old games...hell, they'd be able to make MORE money by just allowing the library of PS1 titles you can STILL BUY for the PSP/Vita/PS3 to be purchased on the PS5.

 

 

If the PS5 is 1000% backwards compatible make mine Sony I have over 250 official games on the PS1 and 2

 

Well according to the presentation today... Only BC with PS4. That's it. And only tested 100 games and ALMOST all of them ran.

 

100 of the MOST PLAYED PS4 games.  So, we'll see GTA, the major Sony games, Overwatch, PUBG, and maybe some of the sports games.

 

I'll wait until more information is revealed, but they are doing NOTHING to get me hyped for a new Playstation.  I'm more game to get an Xbox One X if they continue to support the platform as they implied.  I'd still be able to take use of the backward compatible catalog to play some DAMN solid games from the past 15 odd years.

Games are gestalts. Unless all the data is there, including the stuff you aren't actually using right now, then it doesn't work. The only way to make that kind of format work would be to make smaller, episodic games and you literally cannot do that with large scale open sandbox worlds. And even then: you're not actually making the game run while downloading, you're just making the downloads faster cause you're putting less stuff in it.

 

Game streaming, on the whole, is stupid. You're stuck relying on a ridiculously fast internet connection which most of the world doesn't have or refuses to pay for, and racking up data charges equal to many times the size of the actual game because you never actually STOP downloading it.
