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

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 August 2020 - 08:35 PM)

I'm itching to get a new game, and Dynasty Warriors Gundam is really catching my eye. Unfortunately, none of the Blockbusters around here have it in stock, and any of the local used game stores have it for $50. Used. While I do have the demo on my Xbox, it isn't enough to justify slapping 50 big ones down. All the reviews I have read online say it's decent, but to stear clear if you're not a Gundam fan. Well, I am a Gundam fan, but with money in short supply, is this game worth the $50?

Dynasty Warriors Gundam is a fun game, but probably not worth splashing out $50 on.

Gameplay is pretty solid, but repetitive and even though you can upgrade Gundams with parts found throughout the game at times it doesn't feel like your doing much to change your Mech. You also have an annoying inconsistency with each Gundams attacks (Is very jarring moving from a traditional Gundam to a G Gundam for example) and this can make you ignore or not want to play as certain characters. However, the in game models are fantastic and each Gundam looks just right. Its also quite satisfying smashing your way through large crowds of enemey Mobile Suits, which there are loads of.

If you see it cheaper later on down the road, pick it up as a Gundam fan, but right now it may be worth looking for something with a bit more depth for that price.

I've got it, and I have played through a little over half of the game, and it really is a blast. I 'd pay $50 for, and I'm just a G Gundam fan, so I guess it is up to you on how bad you want it.

It's Dynasty Warriors through and through. Don't mistake it. If you don't like Dynasty Warriors, don't get it.

I love DW, so I loved it.

Funny you should mention this game, because I bought it for $41 shipped 2 weeks ago on Ebay and have been playing it a ton since then. Overall, it's a good game, but with some serious flaws.

First, the gameplay is fun. I like that part of it a lot. I've never played a DW game before, but it was very easy to get into, and it was fun leveling up characters to get them new special moves.

There are two modes: Official Mode and Original Mode. Official Mode lets you play through events from the anime series (Gundam, Zeta, Double Zeta). You get to play as Amuro, Judau, Scirroco, etc. It's a ton of fun to see the events from the anime unfold. You even get to kill Lalah! icon-waspy.gif

On the other hand, original Mode is just a jumble of battles with no coherent plot. Besides the lack of plot, Original Mode is incredibly repetitive. You play through the same levels over and over. There are different enemies and allies (sometimes), and different dialogue (sometimes), but it gets boring.

So, basically Official Mode is awesome and Original Mode is medicore. Now, the mediocreness of Original Mode wouldn't be a problem if there were enough Official Mode levels to compensate, but there aren't. Official Mode has only 6 playable characters with about 4 levels each. On the other hand, Original mode has about 15 playable characters with about 5 levels each. So basically the game is only about 25% Official Mode and 75% Original Mode. (This is the case despite the cover art and intro movie depicting Original Mode...)

In summary, when you play through Official Mode, you'll probably really enjoy it. As you play through Original Mode, you'll probably start getting bored. If they made a DW Gundam that was just 100 levels of official mode, I would probably give it a glowing review. But it's mostly Original Mode, unfortunately.

One thing I thought was notable about this game is that it's the closest thing ZZ is going to get to an English dub :-P That was kind of neat.

Also, it's fun to get the Musha Gundam (after beating the six protagonists' original modes) and kick everones' asses really fast with it in levels that are normally difficult or time-consuming.

Ehh.. The thing I hated most about the game was Official mode.


I can't stand how whiney most of the UC pilots are.

I didn't like Official mode because despite how you played it ends the same way and a lot of the battles were the same just from different perspectives.

I'm a big Dynasty Warriors fan, but I can't justify paying more than 30 dollars for this game. I'll pick it up when it gets to that eventual point.
