    Does this match include the virtual PC from Saints row the 4th?

    Thought about that. but he gets a Suit in the end that gives him all those powers in reality so the point became moot.

  3. pimpmage March 20, 2015 at 2:05 am -      #3

    Well, if he keeps the suit back into the real world, he pretty much has /tgm on 24/7.

  4. Rookie March 20, 2015 at 2:28 am -      #4

    Probably boss wins. He is immune to damage at the end of the game. And unless I am mistaken in SR4 he gets black hole gun.

  5. Alpha or Omega March 20, 2015 at 2:56 am -      #5

    Cole is durable and has attacks that drains life energy. His attacks are electricity and sub-zero attacks. And dodges bullets.

    Here are all his moves.

    Initial bets on Cole, Boss, or Neo depending on the calculations used for him.
    /
    Can we get stuff the dude from Sunset Overdrive, I don’t have that game yet.

    “Dodging from minigun.”

    SR4 Boss has beam weapons that disintigrate the target, or another weapon that inflates a person like a balloon till they explode.

    “Blasts a hole in an aircraft carrier and sinks it.”

    I cant seem to find any good videos to showcase it.. but the boss is pretty much the nlf invulnerable to energy, impacts, bullets, explosions, falls. No magic exists in sr3, so boss would be pretty vulnerable to that, or diseases or i dunno, poisons. Same goes for sr4 boss, except now boss can run across the city in a few seconds, as well as jump over the highest sky scrapers.

    “but the boss is pretty much the nlf invulnerable to energy, impacts, bullets, explosions, falls.”

    Wouldn’t the limit be the most damaging thing he has tanked in his verse game.

  8. CH1C4N0444 is allergic to bullets March 20, 2015 at 4:59 am -      #8

    Wow, I was actually trying to think of a match like this for a while. Only the agent from Crackdown was in it too and I only had 3 of the four I wanted(Mercer and Boss were in it, couldn’t think of a fourth).

  9. Secrecy27 March 20, 2015 at 7:51 am -      #9

    but the boss is pretty much the nlf invulnerable to energy, impacts, bullets, explosions, falls.

    I’m pretty sure all If these comes from game-mechanics…

    SR4 Boss has beam weapons that disintigrate the target, or another weapon that inflates a person like a balloon till they explode.

    All which I’m sure he only had in the simulation. The Beam weapon worked by erasing the core IIRC, real people don’t have code.

  10. Secrecy27 March 20, 2015 at 7:56 am -      #10

    *code, not core.

  11. Ordo11 March 20, 2015 at 7:59 am -      #11

    Neo has code

  12. Secrecy27 March 20, 2015 at 8:23 am -      #12

    @Ordo11
    Only when inside the matrix. Don’t know what the perimeters of this match is, but so far I’m asuming Neo is outside the matrix, and he doesn’t have any superhuman feats outside, except for stopping the sentinels.

  13. Ragnorke March 20, 2015 at 9:38 am -      #13

    “Only when inside the matrix. Don’t know what the perimeters of this match is, but so far I’m asuming Neo is outside the matrix, and he doesn’t have any superhuman feats outside, ”

    I’m 99% sure he was intended to have his powers for the match…
    So casual bullet timer, flight, some TK, wall busting strength.
    Doesn’t that make him the fastest person in the match?

    Edit: nvm, coles Minigun feat comes close.
    Although miniguns from a helicopter are infamously (pun intended) inaccurate.

  14. hellboy147 March 20, 2015 at 10:08 am -      #14

    Who are lighting timers here? Cole got ionic strom which is basically a lighting strIke from the sky? Ionic drain which sucks the life out of his opponent.

    That does, to my knowledge, make this match a stomp in his favour. The only one having a chance is the Boss, with his data-erasing device.

  16. LadyRamkin March 20, 2015 at 10:42 am -      #16

    Are there people on the golden gate bridge?, Alex can infect people to make them just like him, and he can control them. He also has Dante level Regen.

  17. Jake_Uzumaki March 20, 2015 at 11:53 am -      #17

    @Ragnorke
    yeah Neo was basically Man of Steel Superman light.

  18. Friendlysociopath March 20, 2015 at 12:20 pm -      #18

    Everyone’s powers work as intended; currently withholding The Bosses simulation weapons from the fight, he can use any weapon he obtains in the real world.
    Yes, there are people on the bridge.

  19. Rookie March 20, 2015 at 12:25 pm -      #19

    @Friendlysociopath

    “Yes, there are people on the bridge.”

    How many of them?

  20. Friendlysociopath March 20, 2015 at 12:34 pm -      #20

    How many of them?

    I’m gonna say 5,000 people and 1,000 vehicles- it’s a big bridge (if that’s mindbogglingly inaccurate tell me).

  21. LadyRamkin March 20, 2015 at 1:22 pm -      #21

    Well, that if 5000 people that Mercer can infect, control and consume.

  22. Friendlysociopath March 20, 2015 at 1:29 pm -      #22

    Well, that if 5000 people that Mercer can infect, control and consume.

    Funnily enough, this also falls under The Bosses powerset as well.

    Here’s a video of all The Bosses powers, mute the kid, pop in some music you like, and enjoy the wackiness.

  23. LadyRamkin March 20, 2015 at 1:33 pm -      #23

    I take it all of these characters are from fairly similar games? Sandboxy, exploration do what you like type affairs. Iv’e only played prototype so my input is limited.

    Cept Neo… who was probably in a game at some point.

  24. Friendlysociopath March 20, 2015 at 2:35 pm -      #24

    I’m 99% sure he was intended to have his powers for the match…

    Did someone really put John (Neo) into a match without the Matrix powers? That would be… silly

  25. LadyRamkin March 20, 2015 at 3:22 pm -      #25

    Isnt Neo’s name Thomas?

  26. Jake_Uzumaki March 20, 2015 at 4:28 pm -      #26

    Yeah Thomas or Tom. But I think with characters like Neo we assume the virtual avatar with the badass skills was intended over the much squishier user.

  27. pimpmage March 20, 2015 at 4:38 pm -      #27

    So Boss doesn’t get his VR weapons unless they were brought into the real world. I haven’t beat the game, so I never got that far. Those are supposed to be super high tech alien weapons that actually exist. Shouldnt everything in his arsenal still be usable in RL? If anyone here who has beat the game knows this answer, I will lick you.

  28. Friendlysociopath March 20, 2015 at 4:55 pm -      #28

    If anyone here who has beat the game knows this answer, I will lick you.

    You will do no such thing to me-
    the only weapons you get ahold of in the real world are the alien lasers rifles; the black hole gun, dubstep gun, and so on are never given to you in the real world segments.
    I stand corrected, the description of the black hole gun mentions it is an alien weapon

    I actually don’t know much about the Sunset Overdrive guy, but it seemed like a shame to exclude him.

  29. Friendlysociopath March 20, 2015 at 5:35 pm -      #29

    Alright new plan then-
    Round 1: Powers only, no weapons for anybody
    Round 2: All weapons for everyone are available
    Anyone disagree with this change?

  30. LadyRamkin March 20, 2015 at 5:42 pm -      #30

    Alex mercers powers include making weapons…. soooooo….

  31. Friendlysociopath March 20, 2015 at 6:08 pm -      #31

    Yep, so he can keep his power-created weapons

  32. LadyRamkin March 20, 2015 at 7:05 pm -      #32

    WELL, I think that Alex eats the competition. Unless they have some AMAZING resistance to viruses.

  33. Limbo Lowk March 20, 2015 at 7:16 pm -      #33

    Boss or Cole can Freeze mercer to keep him out of the fight for a bit. Cole possibly longer going by how less powerful Ice users have left an area like a winter wonderland.

  34. Darth Bombad March 20, 2015 at 7:18 pm -      #34

    I’m pretty sure we determined in their one on one that Cole fries Mercer.
    factpile.com/3222-alex-mercer-vs-cole-mcgrath/
    He just can’t stand up to Cole’s firepower, and Alex is vulnerable to electricity.

  35. Friendlysociopath March 20, 2015 at 7:30 pm -      #35

    Huh, alright, the Sunset Overdrive character can do all of his stuff because of reasons… yeah, apparently it’s just never explained.

    Well, I did throw him in there sort of as a wildcard, but it looks like everyone could deal with him no problem.

  36. Alpha or Omega March 20, 2015 at 8:38 pm -      #36

    @Friendlysociopath
    I think the dude from Sunset Overdrive should be pit against Juliet Starling from Lollipop Chainsaw.
    /
    Cole doesn’t really need weapons for the second round, he just has his powers.
    He does have his usual weapon, but that’s like giving a dagger to a guy that can point and explode things.

  37. Friendlysociopath March 20, 2015 at 9:00 pm -      #37

    The weapons between rounds is pretty much because The Boss is the only one with actual weaponry separate from his powers- and his weapons are kind of BS powerful.

  38. Parry Boy March 22, 2015 at 12:43 am -      #38

    If incarnation rule still applies, two of these contestants are dead.
    If we were to use the version right before they died, Cole has a very nice chance winning here.

    He was pretty much a bug.
    But a bug that spits ebola, AIDS, and bullets.

  39. Parry Boy March 22, 2015 at 12:48 am -      #39

    btw guys sorry for double post but the time you should watch is around 14:10

  40. pimpmage March 22, 2015 at 1:26 am -      #40

    “If incarnation rule still applies, two of these contestants are dead.”

    Wtf u talking about? Dead people cant compete in matches….

    “All combatants are considered to be at their current incarnations, or most recent incarnation (((((PRIOR)))) to death and/or incapacitation”

  41. Ragnorke March 23, 2015 at 7:25 am -      #41

    @Hellboy
    “Who are lighting timers here? Cole got ionic strom which is basically a lighting strIke from the sky? Ionic drain which sucks the life out of his opponent.”

    Cole needs to charge up the lightning strike though, and it doesn’t have a massive area.
    His normal lightning powers appear to be significantly slower.

    As for the Ionic Drain… Would that work on Alex Mercer?

    @Ramkin
    “Are there people on the golden gate bridge?, Alex can infect people to make them just like him, and he can control them.”

    Doesn’t it take time to make people anywhere near the way he is?
    AFAIK they just become zombie-esq for a while.

    They would be canon fodder for Mercer to consume, meaning more regen for him.
    But i don’t see the civilians being helpful to him in any other way.

    “WELL, I think that Alex eats the competition. Unless they have some AMAZING resistance to viruses.”

    He would need to touch Cole or Neo first…

    @Friendly
    “Round 1: Powers only, no weapons for anybody
    Round 2: All weapons for everyone are available”

    I think Neo stomps round 1 then.
    As if being the fastest wasn’t enough, he also loves flying around.

    As for the weapons, doesn’t Neo just “lol no” bullets?
    It doesn’t seem like it matters how many they are or what kind of gun it is.
    His powers work under the philosophy that nothing is real, and thus anything but living people can be manipulated & changed.

  42. LadyRamkin March 23, 2015 at 8:02 am -      #42

    “Doesn’t it take time to make people anywhere near the way he is?”
    _
    Well that depends on how long Heller was unconscious, after alex stabbed him, Couple hours minimum, but I see your point.

    “He would need to touch Cole or Neo first…”

    He has the, big, spikey, splosion, thing

  43. Alpha or Omega April 1, 2015 at 11:35 pm -      #43

    @Ragnorke
    “As for the Ionic Drain… Would that work on Alex Mercer?”
    /
    Yes, since Alex has no defense against it. The only down side is that it doesn’t have the same range as his other attacks.
    Though, I don’t think Cole would use it against Mercer right off the bat. He has other powers that can still take down Mercer.
    /
    Unless, you mean him having the blacklight virus with the debate of viruses living beings or not and if life energy ties in or not.
    Honestly, I don’t think the virus part would matter since he has biomass which means he’s still partly a living being if viruses aren’t considered living.
