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.

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.

@  -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.

Does the PS3 charge SIXAXIS and DualShock3 controllers while it's powered-down, or does it have to be up and active to charge them? I ask because I bought a DualShock3 recently, and even though it's been plugged in with the charge cable for a couple of weeks, it's still telling me that the battery's low.

I would ASSUME that the usb ports wouldn't be powered unless the system was running, just like in a normal pc.

I've never tested it myself, but that's my very strong assumption. It would be a waste of power otherwise, since you'd have to keep all the circuits in between the power supply and the ports powered nonstop.

I have a somewhat similiar question though. Has anyone who has a Dualshock 3 and actually uses it with frequently vibrating games noticed how it compares with the normal sixaxis in terms of battery life? I'd guess this is something I'd need to research, since it would depend heavily on how much the motors were needed and someone actually paying close attention.

PS3 doesn't charge Sixaxis controllers when it's turned off. (I've had a controller hooked up to it overnight while it was off and then when I turned it on in the morning, there was still no power in the controller.)

Also, it doesn't charge cell phones with USB charger ports at all, I found it icon-waspy.gif

Since my PS3 came with the DualShock 3, I can't compare it to the regular SIXAXIS, but I have found the battery to last pretty long with the vibration feature. I also don't think that I've ever fully charged the controller either, so on a full charge I would imagine it would last plenty long enough.

The DualShock 3 lasts pretty long. I play for days without charging it. My cousin was just playing God of War II for the first time and he didn't recharge it once in the 4-5 days he played it. It pretty much lasted all the way up to the final battle with Zeus. I'm not sure how many hours of gameplay he put into it, I'll have to check with him.

Very cool. One of the things I love about the sixaxis is how long it lasts on a charge. Sooner or later I'll throw down for the dualshock.

Some cell phones *glares at my MotoQ* require a "special" cable to charge via USB, otherwise it will just data sync. USB ports are just USB ports for the most part. Since they are used to charge the controllers, they are obviously powered ports so anything that charges over USB should work.

Yeah I always charge mine with the DVR usb port its right in front of the tv and its always on so I don't have to worry about it being off. As far as time I have both a Sixaxis and Dual Shock 3, I've never actually timed em but they both seem pretty comparable.

I rarely have mine plugged in to my my ps3 for charging. It spends most of its time plugged in to my powered usb hub.
It annoys windows from time to time, but what doesn't.
as interesting side note by the way windows xp\vista recognize it as a video game controller, but are unable to do anything with it.
