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

Ransack. That's like another 20 or so.

Yeah the Wii has third party support, but not everyone can buy two consoles and frankly, there are some great games out there that the people solely with Wiis aren't getting. And from another perspective, imagine the potential for the Wii with those third party titles. Wii's got the most diverse base, and imagine if that diversity managed to obtain copies of Oblivion and/or Bioshock.

It'd go a long way to dispelling the myth that video games are solely for children.


Well it seems Capcom is willing to port their games to Wii, and only one of them so far could be considered Kiddy (Okami) But we got RE4 last year and now Dead Rising. Amazing how in this threat that was an example of a game Wii'd never see because it was an HD game. I wouldn't be surprised if later on (late 2009 or sometime in 2010) to see RE5 for Wii as well. Sure they won't be released at the same time, but I don't think that realistic to expect. We also got Umbrella Chronicles. There are many games that aren't for kids. Yeah seeing a GTA, Oblivion/Fallout or Bioshock would also help that, and I'll be surprised if we don't see a GTA game at some point on Wii, but its getting their.

Galaxy looks good, but the basic resolution and jaggies at best look like a Gamecube game.
Looks great on an old CRT, but that's old technology.


So your complaint has absolutely nothing to do with the graphics, art, or visuals, and just comes down to not having component cables for the Wii and a television that handles upscaling properly?


to be honest, I hooked up my Brother in laws via Component to my HDTV, and it looked terrible. My TV upscales very well too.

Yeah, I'd still like to see the scans before I say anything else on Dead Rising though.

But you also claimed the DS was for people with ADD and that the PSP would kill it.

well, it did take a hit on graphics. Density seems to be the same, though we'll have to wait and see for screens closer to release.

Sadly i forgot that people would see the Nintendo logo, forgive it for being a badly designed gimmick PoS, and buy it up like it was a cancer curing turd. People these days seem to be more interested in cheap crap than paying a little more for actual quality.

it's always refreshing to see an opinion based solely on hate for nintendo, and with nothing else to back it up whatsoever.


See, just like the other hardcore nintendo haters, you make these ludicrous claims, while millions of people are buying and enjoying the system. you have nothing to back up your claim except for your undying dislike for big N.


Just out of curiosity, what exactly did Nintendo do to you personally, that you loathe them so?

Why, is it mentioned somewhere on that page that Dead Rising is HD?

That's really enough. Console vs. console in here is like abortion in P&R--it just inevitably derails any otherwise reasonable topic, people get all kinds of pissed off, and no one ever actually convinces anyone else of anything.

If there's anything left to discuss about Microsoft's E3 presentation, feel free, and the thread can stay open. Otherwise, stick with the off-topic horse battery, and it gets locked.
