Which crisis crossover are we on now? I lost track.

@  Rycochet : (09 August 2020 - 05:18 PM)

Much of the past decade has been the part of the comic series where less than stellar authors have driven the series into the ground and the editors are getting ready to either do a big multi issue crossover, leading to a reboot.

@  Bass X0 : (09 August 2020 - 02:28 PM)

At this point I've just decided to consider 2020 "not canon."

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 August 2020 - 02:18 PM)

'member Pepperidge Farm?

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 August 2020 - 02:10 PM)

Before the 'member berries there was Pepperidge farm. Pepperidge farm remembers.

@Nevermore yes.

@  Nevermore : (08 August 2020 - 09:11 AM)

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

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

Well after my big post about this in the Skylanders thread can't say I was surprised to see this happen. Starter set includes Jack Sparrow, Sully from Monters University, and Mr. Incredible and the Infinity platform which in the video looks very thin compared to the Portal of Power. Biggest thing however looks like there is a level editor to play with. So far in the video it shows characters from the 3 series above as well as Toy Story, Cars, Nightmare Before Christmas, Phineas and Ferb, Wreck-It Ralph, Dumbo, and Aladdin

Kotaku - You'll be able to play as Jack Sparrow, Woody or any other Disney Character in the crazy ambitious Disney Infinity

So the level-editing of Little Big Planet, the building element of Minecraft, the figure collecting of Skylanders and it's a Disney crossover game?

But... but Disney... I NEEDED that money.

Edit: Oh, and the powerups are sold in Blind Bags? No, no that's fine Disney just feed into every single one of my addictions at once. It's cool.

Those are only the power ups though, I'm assuming they should be easily ignored - or just purchased on the secondary market.

As Muppet Studios is a seperate entity to Disney Proper, this means other separate, but owned groups could show up in this....ie. Marvel & Star Wars (and Indiana Jones).

I don't know about these games, though...are they morpgs? single player? Looks like it's not avail for PC or Mac, so likely I'm out (but not out of wallet icon-fire.gif )

I'm a bit disturbed that they aren't promoting it with any Disney Classics characters, mostly just Pixar and Touchstone and Disney Channel and other offshoot properties. I'm sure the classics will be in there, but it's kind of sad that Disney doesn't think they're relevant enough to market the game with.


What's weird is that me, a life long disney fan (and share holder) didn't even notice the lack of mice or ducks, but didn't feel like "Oh, those aren't TRUE Disney characters"...Mine was more of a "one big happy family under the D". (and i was jazzed seeing Jack holding the Pixar bouncing ball)

I understand it's a generational thing. Captain Jack and Sully and Lightning McQueen are more popular today than Simba and Aladdin and Beast were when I was a kid. The characters Disney chooses to use for marketing are based on what's currently popular, so I'll just have to get over that.

I'm sure there's a 90 year-old man sitting bitter somewhere because Disney no longer chooses to market its products with Horace Horsecollar and Clara Cluck. He probably has his arms folded, thinking "Damn youngsters with their Tinkerbells and their Ludwig von Drakes and their Scrooge McDucks... NOT IN MY DAY!"


Maybe, but iirc, I have a few years on you.

Actually, the lack of Tinkerbell given the fairies push is a bit weird, too...obviously the marketers are saying "girls don't play games" but you'd think a token appearance would be there.

Of course, there's a lot of months between now and launch, so things like Agriba and Pride Rock have plenty of time (if not a whole 2nd enditon, add on pack whatever)

If only Disney would start caring for such shows. They have a huge fandom. Especially Garogyles.

Also, put some classics like Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck in there.

I wouldn't count out TV show characters, the initial promo image on their FB page shows Perry the Platypus and Phineas (but no Ferb?).

Tho Disney afternoon stuff would practically guarantee my money. Just some Gargoyles and Darkwing Duck and I"m sold.

Darkwing Duck and Agent P? I'd be all over that.

I just hope it has more heart to it than that Disney racing game for the iPhone. That felt so-- pardon the expression-- phoned in. But I don't think this will be quite as bad.
