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.

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?

@  Darth Gonzo : (03 August 2020 - 09:57 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.

@  -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

Well, it finally hit me. I got bored last night and thought "Lets see what new demos are out" and I hit the button on my controller and after a second I said in german "WHAT IS TAKING SO LONG!?!?!?" because it wasn't turning on.. and lo and behold, the 3 red lights.

So I did some basic trouble shooting, made sure the cables were connected, took the HDD out and made sure the power supply light was still turning on... but I knew what had happened.

Luckily, the phone call to MS was pretty painless so I went ahead and registered it. I asked if it was still under warranty since it was a Gamestop refurbished and she said it would be, but I might have to transfer the serial number to my name.. but the previous owner had no registered it.

I heard they used to send a box, now they just email a shipping label.

So hopefully in 2-3 weeks I'll have my 360 back, either way.

Man that sucks Kal but at least they are still gonna fix it for you. I'd be hard pressed to see if mines still good. The original owner bought it during our last tour in Iraq, so I'm surprised there is no sand in the works. Considering it's a 1st gen 360 pro and the only times the Red ring has shown has been when I've goofed the connections. Still it loves to freeze in the middle of Kotor on me, and froze on my bro yesterday while playing Lego Indy. Maybe my consoles a Lucasarts hater.

Nothing ever official was stated, but some of the vendors are saying its because Microsoft went cheap on some of the hardware and pretty much all of them prior to the new hardware that came out last year WILL get RRoD. It's a design flaw and it's only a matter of time.

Last I 'heard' its 30% of the first gen models.

I have a pretty good idea of what's happening and why, and if mine wasn't under warranty I could probably fix it myself with a multi-meter and a soldernig iron.

After working at Gamestation for a year and watching my friends 360's die one by one, I'll have to be honest and say it's probably a lot more than 30%

Either that or the UK got quite a few dodgy ones icon-hotrod.gif

I know of only 2 people off the top of my head that haven't had RRoD and one of them works for Microsoft, so he has plenty of consoles to use that he probably doesn't wear his launch unit out. Everyone else I know that has a 360 has had RRoD at least once.

On the other side of the spectrum, I only know 1 person who has had a RRoD, and his was a launch unit that came directly from Microsoft before launch.

What's more interesting is our dev kits are on almost 24 / 7 and they don't RRoD. I'll have to check up on that.

From what some guy who is about 20 levels higher on the nerd chain has told me it has something to do with Vapor soldering.
That type of soldering wears out and allows everything to heat up and burn out. Or something like that i was trying to fix his tv and he went off on a rant.

It's was sent back unfixed accidentally due to drunk post-office workers, so I sent it back again, but it's been fine since...


To be honest these days I talk to my 360 alot...I dunno, I just try not to make it feel like I'm neglecting it?
