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.

@  -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

Ugh.  My D&D campaign is getting another reboot.  X(

I put SO much work into Pepper's bio too.... 

 

Another reboot? How do those come about?

Too plot-critical to have new characters join in media res or just soldier on with fewer players?

 

Is there any reason Pepper can't return for the reboot?

Fascinated by how wildly opposed these two Dragon Heist reviews are:

I assume the reality is probably somewhere in the middle but I wondered if any of y'all had thoughts on it.

Dragon Heist is peak Forgotten Realms IMO, and not in the good way.

 

Sure, it pits you against established names of the lore like that lame weenie Jarlaxle or the Xanathar, but ultimately your accomplishment is having them nonchalantly shake their fist at you going "Curse you, I guess, you didn't even so much foil me as set my plans back, like, a week and a half tops".

 

Jarlaxle is the hugging worst. Not only is his stat block Plot Armored out the wahzoo (even breaking the base rules of magic items in the process), but he's even guaranteed by the module to come out on top.

Wednesday I experienced my first TPK.  Long story short... it was a testament to why you don't let a Goblin bluff with fire.

Well, my group is going to keep going... With my Character and two possible others surviving.  3 others will be writing up new chars.

My girl was outside during the explosion, reducing the damage enough so that there where remains for them to find (an ear 5 miles away that was embedded in a tree) and Magic 5th Element her back.  Our Druid's soul will possess a Monk Bear.  And our Robot's player is considering either the 'Black Box' or 'Ultron' contingencies.

But yeah... it sucks being only our 2nd game in that campaign.

2 weeks late, but that game was a cross between aggravation and hilarity. 

Got 3 players who kind of suck the fun out of the campaign.  Loud, Obnoxious, and don't seem to understand this isn't a board game.  Sat there for like 10 minutes trying to say something while the one just kept going on and on over something inconsequential while I got like 3 to talk over what we'd do with the hostages we just liberated.  And again later we get stuck in the noobiest mistakes of all... splitting up the party.

But that did leave to the funny part.

Three of us go down the one passage, hearing yelling in goblin coming from behind a door.  So we form up (Bar-Bar, Ranger, Rogue) and open the door... to find 3 bugbears 'initiating' a Goblin.  First time we encountered a Bugbear we nearly had a TPK on account of splitting up the party.  FORTUNATELY we had grabbed gang hoods earlier and put them on... So our Dwarf Barbar rolls a deception and yells 'WASSSAAAAAAAAAP'?

The Bugbears fail their check.

So yeah, we spend a few rounds joining in on hazing a Goblin... until the other group needs help.  They continued down the other corridor, entering another room with a card game, and the fighter tried to do the same thing.  Only this time it was humans who wheren't dummies.  So yeah, our Dwarf keeps the bugbears busy as we pull out, shut the door, and sneak in to back their asses up.

Thursday's game went all cray cray.

Aside from My Tiefling Bard and another players Elf Rogue/Sorcerer being species-swapped due to reprecussions of aligning with this new realm/Rolling a crit-fail after taking max health on leveling... and getting turned into the indigenous peoples of the Yuan-ti and Tabaxi respectively (i am snek now), we did some Indiana Jones stuff for sneaking into snek temple to get macguffin.  Unfortunately once our rather squishy kitty picked up the shiney macguffin off the altar, it tripped the trap... and we wish it was just a boulder.  Stone Golem with Necro-sword could TRACK the macguffin, so it chased our squishy kitty rogue/sorcerer despite her sneak.  It beat her down and grabbed her (which being this realm all damage is maxed isn't hard).  It probably would have been best for me to hold off on the healing words... because it took her back to the altar, set her down, and impaled her under it flamey sword down to 1 hit point.

Yeah... she really wished she'd been unconscious for that.

Luckily we'd picked away at it enough with my 3rd lvl Shatter and the Barbarian Dwarf's sheer might that it only lasted another round, but them we had to lift the damn sword off of her and get her out before we could heal her!  Dwarf failed to lift it, other Rogue failed to lift it (after being told NOT to heal her while she was impaled on an altar), Snek bard... rolled a nat 20 and hoisted that giant-sized greatsword off our squishy kitty!  BUT couldn't heal her right away considering she couldn't set the damn thing down without help.

Snek and Kitty just about murdered other rogue over ooc commentary that wasn't specified as ooc. 
When a char is in excruciating pain.... one does not say 'Does this hurt?  Does this hurt"

Was TOTALLY going to lvl 6 poison spray that rogues face off. X(

Yeah, I've Done wrote up myself a Codex of Backup chars.  Not the stat sheets per-se, but a Formula for construction, featuring all the details/bonuses for race, baclground, class, ect.

And now I've got the 'Guide to Monsters'....

I've already made a Whisper College Bard who is a Pureblood Yuan-tee.  Think 'snakey esmerelda' who isn't G-rated.  Snakes don't have emotions... thing is that when she was exposed to it outside of the what the slaves displayed, she kind of was enticed by it... and kind of enjoys it, like a drug.  Like from that Star Trek lady with the claymation cat lady who wanted 'New Sensations'.

And now I want to make some monks.  One being a Yuan-Ti (Cobra style), and One being a full-blooded Orc.  Yeah, choosing the most violent and raging races to become one of the most chill characters I can think of.  He even chill around Elves... even if he'll passive-aggressively diss them for being easily broken.

Actually my first choice was Dragonborn.... then High Elf, but their too uppity.... and after doing some reading I realized how Klingon-like the Hobgoblins are, and my friend always equates Klingons with Samurai.

... Wait, didn't Samurai just become a Fighter path her in 5-e?
