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

Hmm, maybe I misunderstood the Netflix thing, but I thought you still had to have a paid Netflix account to take advantage of the Netflix/Xbox 360 thing. Perhaps I was wrong.

No, you're right about that.

Netflix members already have access to watch SOME movies on their PCs. Soon, we'll be able to watch them through the 360 on our TVs, which will be much more convenient.

I hope they increase the number of flicks available, and a quality increase would be nice too... but still, it's a nice thing to have.

watched the entire confrence on g4 and it was really cheesy that at the request of microsoft that the final fantasy 13 footage was shown from such a far distance. Not that I'm a big FF fan any way but still, MS c'mon.

Was very surprised that the peter jackson halo project wasn't talked about at all, thats the reason I watched the whole thing after all.

And as for the avatars and other family friendly stuff, if microsoft thinks they can beat Nintendo at nintendos game they're fooling themselves. Just get to work on halo 4 or whatever its gonna be called.

I'll say the same thing I said when someone else said this.

Who gives a hug?

I don't, why should you? The 360 has survived just fine without people buying in Japan on the other hand japanese titles sell quite well to us americans and this is the result of that.

To hell with Japan if they don't want to support the 360, we are a getting a bonanza of awesome RPG's and that is all that matters.

Its good for SE, Sony has a biggest presence in Japan IIRC; while 360 has a bigger presence in America. Release FF13 on both and the make the most they can off the game.

FF13 is still PS3 only in Japan, so its not like it coming to 360 was supposed to help the Japanese market.

Anyways, I really hate the new interface. I really hope there is a way to turn it off.

Square themselves said it. Japan will get FFX13 on the PS3 only because the 360 is pretty dead there. After its launch they will localize the game for the 360 and Ps3 US/Euro markets.



meh. even tho i own a 360, MS's press confernce made me feel really sad inside. I thought Square had more class than this but I guess I was wrong. And its just.. eh.. I hate all this crap with buying exclusives or buying away exclusives, or buying away DLC for games.. I mean jive. MS secured Exclusive DLC for Fallout 3 for the 360 and PC. Thats pretty much a "hey, hey sony? hug YOOOOOOOOU" move more than a smart business move, its not about moving 360 units but to piss off people who decided not to support MS's buyathalon method of business.

Im prett sure at some point im going to see the news article "FFX13 gets excsluvie 360 content" and im going to just stop wanting to play games for a long time. Yeah i know. its smart money for both MS and the companies involved but.. meh. As a gamer it grates against how i feel things should work. *shrugs* then again im a relic from the days when this kinda thing didnt happen except under extreme circumstances.
