Is $30 a good deal for Subscription Service Breakdown?

@  Trpodeca : (08 August 2020 - 06:24 AM)

Oh dear God no. Twitter has changed it's default layout to the terrible new one. Why waste so much space on the left?

@  Steevy Maximus : (07 August 2020 - 08:28 PM)

@Bass X0, yeah, the Joe comic got REALLY solid in the upper 20s to the Cobra Civil War. It's interesting to see how well the Joe comic has aged relative to the cartoon. Where as I feel the opposite is true of Transformers

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 August 2020 - 03:58 PM)

Its so fun watching past TF Conventions.

@  Bass X0 : (07 August 2020 - 02:20 PM)

I've been reading classic 80s G.I. Joe lately. Its still decent even though I don't have any nostalgia towards it.

@  Sabrblade : (07 August 2020 - 08:50 AM)

Think of it as Adam West Batman instead. ;)

@  wonko the sane? : (07 August 2020 - 07:49 AM)

That sounds more like the flash, or maybe booster gold than batman.

@  Sabrblade : (07 August 2020 - 12:27 AM)

They would get bored fighting each other and instead decide to take an epic cross-country road trip together.

@  RichardT1977 : (06 August 2020 - 08:57 PM)

What would happen if Batman were to fight Squirrel Girl?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 09:03 PM)

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

I finally got around to watching some Persona 4 and I love it to death. I have a dilemma now, though. I've never gotten further than recruiting Rise. I really like the game, but I keep basically drowning in all the choices (who to date, what stats to focus on, time limited events, etc).
Now I have to decide if I want to spoil myself and watch the anime past where I left off, or if I want to hold back and try to finally finish the game.

Anyway, about that anime. One thing that kept me from watching it for a long while was the protagonist's name. I'd gotten used to naming mine after the manga's Seta Souji, so a new one being introduced kind of irked me. I got over it quick once I started the first episode, though. Even with dialogue he feels really close to the game's version (which is to say: Awesome)
I love that they got the main cast back and kept the music straight from the game, though I don't like the new opening song(s). The original is damn catchy, and the others are just sort of there. Bleh.
The changes to the story and battling are pretty well done. I was expecting to go in picking it apart, but I like what they've done for the sake of pacing and action.

I have a few more episodes before I catch up with the game, then I'll have to decide to either keep going or break out the game and try to go at it without annoying myself to death with a faq again.
And if I decide to play, THEN I'll have to decide if I want to continue where I left off or restart so I can use the anime protag's name. icon-ball.gif

Aw come on! I can't be the ONLY Zero no Tsukaima F fan here!

I loved the first season, loved the second season. I will admit the third season was a bit 'too' silly and fanservicy at times.

However season 4 doesn't have that problem. Two episodes in, and the plot has already gone wild! I can't WAIT to see where this goes.

(Also the fanservice seems similar to how it was in the first season. There really hasn't been that much)

It's a secret to everybody

Despite myself, I'm rehooked on Zero. If they can just continue to keep Louise's flaming hellb thing attitude scarce, then it could be quite enjoyable.

I'm really liking Ano Natsu de Matteru. Yeah, it's horribly similiar in ways to Onegai Teacher, but I loved that series, and this one seems fun as well.

Aquarion EVOL looks to be a great show (at least for what it is) judging from the first three episodes. I loved the first series (I just finished it on DVD yesterday), and this may well be better.

Yeah, I figured the girl would already be having some space pirate adventures by now. Compared to Rinne no Lagrannge or Symphogears, very slow. And there's a ton of characters, but most of them are complete blanks so far, so it's not like they're spending all their time with introducing the herd.

Oh well, hopefully it will build up to something awesome.

It's 26 episodes long and following the novel pretty closely.

I'm glad they're taking their time building up the space stuff though.

Bubblegum Crisis Tokyo 2040
Heroic Age
Rideback
Shangri-La
Heroman
Tiger & Bunny
Vandread
Star Driver (heir apparent to Gurren Lagann)
Full Metal Panic (though be advised: S2 ["Fumoffu"] is a pretty big tonal shift from serialized dramatic action-comedy to straight-up episodic slapstick --though it is possible to jump right from S1 to S3, since nothing changes in S2.)

It's definitely on Hulu, I just watched the first 3 episodes a few days ago.

From what I saw of it I enjoyed it a lot, it's a super hero show where they're sponsored by companies to basically pay for what ever damages they cause, and the main to keep from being forced to retire has to team up with the newest hero.
