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

Wii Sports Resort: Disc Dog (throw a frisbee for a dog to catch), a Jet Ski game, and a swordfighting/log-chopping game.

Hey, that's what I want... a game that precisely emulates my natural lack of ability.

They're testing using the DS as a travel guide--when your plane lands, you get info on where to get your luggage, where to find a restaurant, etc.


Delta's DS Travel Stations do this right now...

My opinion? Dog Poop.

Another E3 from Nintendo catering to the Mass Media and "Expanded Audience",
and they're doing this with a music game that sounds horrible. No. No thanks.

Show me something more interesting at the Developer Roundtable or I go crazy.
Yep.

Nintendo said they were no longer competing, and getting Mario 128, Zelda and Metroid off their back was their priority. It's now up to third party developers to satisfy the hardcore gamers with a Wii, other then that I would consider it filler.

well, I'm glad to see Nintendo trying.

Does anyone see City-Swimmer? Is he gliding beneath the silver water? Is he creeping 'round a corner, hugging a wall, silent as a shadow in the dark?

So nothing interesting then.

I wonder if buying a Wii was a mistake, seems the best titles are already out and well, this was just boring and uninteresting, there was nothing there I am interested in.

Guess Nintendo is going into overdrive with their new gamer demographic.

This will never happen, most 3rd party companies seem perfectly content to dole out shovelware.

It doesn't help that the shovelware sells and the hardcore content as it where sells poorly(or at least poorly compared to the shovelware).

Being a Nintendo fanboy, this line of announcements is just subpar. I'm all for WiiSports Resort, it looks fun and could be a good sequel to the first. But lack of Mario, Link, and Samus in any form is kinda got me thinking it's gonna be a 360 year next year.

Nintendo has some pages up for the new games. http://e3.nintendo.com/

http://e3.nintendo.c...sing/index.html
I have to say... I'm really disappointed with Animal Crossing Wii so far. Watching that video, I don't see one significant new feature that wasn't in the DS game. Sure, you can use your Mii, but that doesn't affect gameplay... and it looks like the same shops are just restructured into one "mall" instead of spread throughout the town. Other than that... it's a freakin' port.

The text says that we'll see the return of "proper" holidays, including Halloween and Bunny Day, which is an improvement over the DS version, but the same as the GCN version. You could already visit other people's towns in the DS game. They mention the same items to collect as previous games: bugs, fish, fossils. Every animal and every piece of furniture in the video comes from a previous game. So... really, what IS new here? It honestly took them three years to smooth out the DS graphics and add voice chat and Miis?

Not so much novelty dude, as lack of new stuff. A new Zelda game actually developed for the wii and not a GC port would be immense, same with metroid.

Hell any new stuff would be good, not just resting on your laurels.
