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?

Tidal wave, cause shooting water gets you nowhere.

@  Darth Gonzo : (03 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Who would win Tidal Wave or Broadside?

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.

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

On G4 (go ahead and laugh) after the conference Reggie said that the Mario and Zelda teams are hard at work.

It shouldn't be a surprise, (I thought they already said they're working on a Wii Zelda) but it was disappointing not seeing anything.

It takes several years for them to make new Mario and Zelda games. I'll be surprised if we see a second true Mario game on Wii, and a Wii Zelda might not even have any showable development on it done for another year or two. Look at the last two Zelda games; WW was released near the start of the GC's life and TP at the end, and held over so a port could use as a Launch title for Wii, which I think was a good move as it gave the Wii its first killer App. So I'm not surprised we haven't heard anything about the next games in those series, even if they do have something planned.

I haven't seen the Sony one yet, but that's two disappointing conferences... Between Nintendo just patting themselves on the back and not really showing much of anything and Microsoft MOSTLY saying 'hey, we can do casual too'. At least the Xbox one ended with a bang(one shot right across Sony's bow). I'm beginning to think Nintendo just doesn't care to put any effort in their E3 presentations anymore(heck, at the rate that studios/publishers are pulling out of the ESA, I wouldn't be surprised if there ISN'T an E3 next year)

It's not that Nintendo doesn't care to put any effort into their E3 presentations. That was a high-end, well-practiced, and thoroughly-calculated presentation that accomplished exactly what Nintendo wanted it to.

Unfortunately for us, Nintendo wanted more "Wii is casual and accessible and fun for everyone" stories from the parts of the mainstream media that only ever pay attention to video games during E3. It's dull as hell to any hardcore gamers, but Nintendo figures that we'll go apejive over a new Zelda or Mario game whenever they show it to us, while USA Today isn't going to write an article to hype up Wii Music any time other than E3 or the week that the game is released.

Speaking as a casual gamer, Nintendo's conference seemed quite good. A lot of stuff to draw me in, not the least of which is GTA:DS. I haven't played a GTA game since the original PC/PS version.

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

Actually im glad they are not doing another metroid game. The series has been over used and is like mainsteam now. Not good. And I dont think I want to see another 1st person shooter/adventure game. I want 3rd person damn it!! but as a fanboy of the Big N. I really wasnt all that impressed with this conference. Other then GTA for the DS of course!

I think I'd like another 1st person game because the control system is screaming out for it, it would work so well. However my problem is we've not had many great ones, Too many world war 2 shooters (and most of them were crap), Red Steel (which was ok) and Metroid (which was awesome), there should be some more because it works so well.

Quick Update - There's a Nintendo Key Developers presser from 6:00PM PST
to 7:30PM PST.

I don't know what all this entails, but I do know that RawMeatCowboy from
GoNintendo is attending and it should be interesting. I don't believe this is
the Nintendo Development meeting (where we got the first confirmation on
Smash Brows Brawl 2 years ago) but probably just an US TOO from smaller
developers working on the Wii and DS...
Yep.

I mean unless there's a spot where you can hook up the nunchuk as well.
