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?

@  -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

So probably from me falling asleep in it a few times. (And my cat loving to climb up the back of it) the Computer/gaming chair I was using pretty much died.

 

I currently have my futon pushed back in front of my computer so I can sit on SOMETHING while I type this.

 

I'm looking around, but am unsure of what I want to go for to replace my old one.

 

So given I trust you guys, what kind of chairs do you use? I basically come home and sit at the computer and either use it or play videogames, so it's something that I'm hoping to have last a while.

 

I'm really just looking to have it be tall enough to support my head. (I'm about six feet tall).

 

I'm trying to keep it "around" 100 bucks. Going a little over (Like maybe 30 bucks over) Is fine.

 

Just, anything you'd recommend? I basically made this thread because I can trust you are real people who will give me real suggestions, rather then the 'reviews' on places like Amazon. I got burned pretty bad last time I did that. You think I'd know better. (Well I mean you guys have seen my posts, so you likely know I'm an idiot, but still. >_<)

I don't set at a desk for my gaming, but I like a nice low, upholstered chair. Something similar to this

I finally got rid of that big white box.

Unless you already have an idea of what you want: I think you might need to hit up a furniture store and start sitting. That's how I did it anyway, I went to the local staples and just sat until I found a chair that met the intersection of comfort and a price I was willing to pay. In my case, it was a mid level manager's chair.

Chair does look nice Ultra Magnus, but not likely to work for what I need. I really do probably need something that can swivel/roll like any usual computer chair.

 

I'll look into being able to go to a staples, or maybe big lots will have something.

 

One of my concerns is that I've read a lot of reviews about 'good chairs' that say "Yeah it was comfortable for the first few weeks, but then the padding gave out and now feels like you are sitting on a park bench with some leather over it."

 

Given my plan is to basically be sitting on this every day for long hours at a time, that wouldn't work.

 

Also given I use a bicycle to get around, transporting a chair will have to wait till I can get help from a roommate with a car. So part of me was kinda hoping to order online to avoid that, but yeah, might be my only option.

 

I suppose if I think about what my goal for this thread was, it was the hope that someone might have been using a chair for a couple of years now and it still feels comfortable to sit in and could suggest it.

 

Also thinking about it, the last time I bought a chair from a store that I got to test out. It felt fine just sitting there for a few moments to test, but trying to sit in it for long hours proved not to work AT ALL. So there is that too.

 

I really don't want to drop 100 bucks or so on a chair and then find out it's only going to last me a month or two at the most before I can't stand sitting in it anymore.

Where did I say you can't order it? Staples does delivery. Just find the one(s) you like, write down the name and model number, then look it up online. If it has some durability to it, you buy it online.

 

You're furniture shopping man: internet shopping is great, but you basically NEED to try before you buy. Take your time, visit a couple of stores, and test out the display models. That's what they're there for. Once you have a better idea of what you liked: research, research, research. It'll take a while, but you'll nail down the one you like and then you can just order it.

Don't be afraid to spend a lot of time in the chair at the store if your concerned about that. Bring your phone, start watching a movie or something.
I finally got rid of that big white box.

When you don't have the coin is the best time to go furniture shopping. You can't satisfy the need to purchase NOW so you're more likely to focus on the other elements your looking for.
