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.

@  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

What Sony really needs to show us is how they're going to capitalize
on the momentum that they're starting to build on both the PSP and
the PS3... I expect quite a bit of Blu-Ray talk and how great they did
with that... We should see Killzone 2 and God of War 3 in some form
or another.

The biggest thing is that they need to date some of their bigger games
and actually get them into the hands of consumers. We need to know
when HOME, Little Big Planet and other things that will see consoles
are actually going to be able to be played. For too long they've been
talking about how wonderful everything will be and telling us to just
wait for it, now they really need to tell us when everything will be out.
Yep.

I'm not expecting much from Killzone 2. Much like Killzone 1, it's a lot of hype with very little underneath it--Resistance 2 is the real shooter to be watching out for on PS3.

And unless Sony gets Home out the door now--like TODAY now--it's kinda old news, considering the 360 may beat them to the punch.

Only if they beat Spore to retail.

And then go back in time and erase Halo 3 from existance.

I didn't pay much attention during this, my reaction for Massive Action Game was "Oh, it's a war game." but I don't really know what I expected.


And they announced a Resistance game for the PSP. I don't own a PS3 but from what I've seen I like Resistance the most out of the current FPS out now.

GOD OF WAR THREE. YES.

Screw you, FFXIII.

But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

So... uh... I take it you're extremely happy that Sony announced a game they'd already announced via flyer included with the PSP edition of the franchise, and extremely upset that Square made one of their most popular (and expensive-to-make) titles multiplatform so more people could play (and buy) it?

Bad news that slipped through the cracks: Sony is dropping backwards-compatibility on the PS3 altogether. The capacity upgrade from 40 to 80 kills the last backwards-compatible PS3 on shelves.

Too much talk about bluray and movie downloads, but I must say Resistance 2 looks rather impressive, and while it's a shooter, I might just check it out, just for the Kaiju scale bosses. It's always nice to see more LBP footage as well.

The big rumor is that KHIII will be on Wii. Not sure how much I believe it, but... I wouldn't be too shocked.

:sigh:

I'm kinda pissed I'm going to have to buy a second-hand non-gimped PS3 when I finally take the plunge.

They should've added the emotion chip back in since they cut costs instead of killing it entirely.

What the heck is Sony's problem? Out of all three consoles, the PS3 is the one that would benefit the most from backwards compatibility. The PS2 is still selling ridiculously well, considering how it's already last-gen, and its top titles still beat the pants off of the best of the PS3 library right now.

I've known people who owned a Wii and didn't even realize it was backwards compatible with GameCube. They didn't even care, because it was GameCube. The PS2 is still relevant.


Oh well, being able to download TV and movies onto my PSP is cool. Too bad I'm already happy with just ripping the DVDs I already own....

I think you answered your own question.

It's stupid and short-sighted, but I think they're saying, "hey, we'll just keep selling PS2s, which don't lose money and which we don't have to pay to market."

Which may be true, but it means their flagship PS3 sales suffer, and Blu-Ray gets fewer new adopters as well. It's one less reason for someone to upgrade.

Actually, I have never heard that many people talk about KH3 being a PS3 exclusive. I was under the impression that the title is considered/rumored widely to be a multiplatform release.
