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?

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

Blaster Master, Bionic Commando.

What was that one game where your character had his hands or arms replaced with robot ones, and you go around smashing stuff... You could get little robot helpers depending on what letter combinations you picked up.

If it's that Angry Video Game Nerd moron, I'd take advice from a Wal-Mart employee before I'd trust him. Any game he sucks at, he swears at a lot. He sucks at a lot of games.

Seriously, the first TMNT game was my favorite of them. I never actually beat it (actually, I don't think I ever beat any Turtles game except Turtles in Time on SNES), but it was a decent platformer.

Also, A Nightmare on Elm Street was pretty fun, especially if you can get four people together to pay as a group (which will require the four-controller accessory, but hey).

*sighs* Let me guess. You're thinking that I'm basing my entire argument based on what like four people I know have said right?

I've been on at least three different message boards, all of which have had a thread about 'What games do you think sucked' and which when this game was meantioned, was agreed that it was pretty bad. Only one or two people saying otherwise.

Also have talked to many people in real life. Can't say the exact number, but it's been an estimate of 20 or more. All of agreed it's pretty bad.

Pretty much 90% of the people I've met who know of the game all say it sucks. So It's my understanding that it's pretty universally agreed that it sucks.

I'm not saying it will suck for everyone, but chances are...

But really in retrospec that can be a very bad argument as Final Fantasy VII is pretty universally agreed that it's the best RPG ever. Which it isn't.

In conclusion though, in the end it's up to the person who started this thread. They'll decide if they want to play it or not.

Metal Storm, if you can find it. It's a side scroller game where you play a mech style robot. The graphics are quite good, animation is very smooth and it's the only NES game I know of with parallax backgrounds. The best part of the game though is the controls, they're very responsive. And you can flip gravity and walk on the ceiling. Many of the stages are complex and imaginative, requiring you to flip gravity several times to figure out how to advance to the next section. The boss battles are fun too, most of them featuring very large sprites, something else not found in many NES games.

It's not very long and it's quite challenging, you can pick up powerups but it's mostly one hit and you're dead. Still it's fun to play and one of the best NES games I can think of.

Lostorbit said it right and the music is quite good as well

Dont forget that it had two seprate models after you get an "A" powerup the Gunners armor changes the level designs are great and the later boss battles are inginious

Heres a little bit of trivia

The boss of Level 4 made an apperance in Irems R-Type Final


Also Heavy Berrel is a great Arcade shooter

My favourite NES titles:

Crystalis.
Metroid.
Super Mario Bros. 2.

Aside from that, it really depends on what you like. If you're into RPGs, I would recommend Final Fantasy 1 and Dragon Warrior 3.

I give up. This is the first message board I've been on to have any love for this game.

I mean I've never hated the game and pretty much exaggerated how one shouldn't pick it up, just because I figured people would be pretty indifferent to the game. That, and I tend to do that from time to time. Really I don't think anyone is missing anything if they skip the first turtles game. It's faults were a bit too much for my (and as stated most people I've met) tastes. It's a mediocre platformer at best.

But I give. Maybe I missed something. I'll have to go play my copy sometime and see if anything changed since I last played it.

I'm sorry I said anything.

considering i just played(and beat it) again last month, i'm gonna say nostalgia isn't the deciding factor on why i like the game.



Yes, it's very difficult in a couple of areas, but no more difficult than, say, getting used to defeating robot masters in Megaman. If you've got enough control to withstand the patterns of them, then TMNT holds no horrors for you.

Beyond that, I liked the combination of gameplay elements then, and would enjoy and update to it now. the overworld map where you can cruise in the turtle van, hunt out different buildings for the side scroller levels, different items you can use, almost like Castlevania. Even the ability to rescue a captured comrade in later levels.

And, some of the bosses really just requires you use a specific turtle to beat them, so there's a bit of a strategy element.


People who throw down their controller because they can't get past the dam stage, then proceed to say "this game sucks" because of it, well, just lazy imo. most NES games take a few times of practice here and there.

don't get me wrong, i also enjoy TMNT 2 and 3 in their arcade style, but save for Tournament Fighters, which as a fighting game is in and of itself an arcade style, they've not really made a TMNT game w/ the variety to it the first one had.

I'll admit, the game had some neat ideas, but all in all they didn't mess together well when I played. The dam level was just the straw that broke the camel's back. But as I've said before: I don't really hate the game, I just find it as a mediocre platformer at best. I could beat the game no problem. If I can beat the orginal NES Ninja Gaiden, and Castlevania 1 and 3, then this game won't be much of a problem. I just have no desire to really do so.

We all love our games that most people hate. I myself Love the PS2 game 'Galerians: Ash' That game isn't exactly loved by many. Hell I've found the game sealed for sale in a fry's for 3.99. People do NOT like this game, but I personally loved it.

Still doesn't change the fact that most people aren't going to enjoy it.
