Difficult to say. I mean the handyman could get lucky and just throw a Big Daddy over the side to his death. (Assuming they're both in the sky city) However, the second Bioshock proved certain Big Daddys could in fact use plasmids and dude,that drill arm....

Handyman wins in all scenarios because he can jump around like a gorilla and is much stronger and faster than a Big Daddy. The only slim chance a Big Daddy has is if he can thrust the drill into the Handyman's heart (the weakspot you have to shoot in Infinite).

If the rules were different and the Big Daddy was allowed to have the rivet gun, things would be way more even and he could shoot the Handyman's weak spot from a distance.

But, seeing that the Big Daddy only has the drill, he loses everytime. Handyman probably wins in each scenario.

Lol this is basically excatlly what I said to Chirs when he drafted this up. It's all about the mobility!

Lol.

Big Daddies are pretty tough but they are vulnerable to everything and can take damage in any variety of ways. Handymen are only vulnerable to damage by hitting them in the heart, otherwise they don't take any damage at all. The chances of a melee Big Daddy getting close to the heart without the Handyman beating him to death or jumping out of the way are slim.

Big Daddies can't even jump! Open and shut case.

But Bioshock 2 proved certain big daddies could use plasmids. Imagine just holding a handyman in the air with telekinesis then either freezing him solid or summoning an electrical storm...game over,man!

Me too Smile

I like Alien even more, but despite how much I love the original I still don't own a copy of it after all these years. I need to get the bluray of it soon so I can watch it again before Alien Isolation comes out in two weeks.

Isolation has me more excited than Colonial marines did. I like the idea of there only being one xenomorph...but it's a hella smart xenomorph!

That's a good man.  Alien is superior to Aliens - whilst Aliens is still awesome.

I think that the Big Daddy will come out victorious overall.  That being said, I think that The Handyman will win in round 1 on Columbia.

I have the same overall hypothesis too!

That's what I think.

I'd say big daddy. The handyman has the heart weak point that the big daddy drill could take care of. Plus big daddy does have a dash move that could take Handyman off guard. Even with Handyman's strengh and up close battle would take awhile given how heavly armored Big Daddy is.

also if you need more proof of what Big Daddy can do in other attacks and win, here is video proof to bolster my claims...

Yeah! The Spoony One!

I think Handyman wins in Columbia because of being able to out maneuver Big Daddy with the rails, but Big Daddy wins in Rapture because he's deadly in small spaces especially when he's protecting a Litter Sister. On open ground. . . I think Big Daddy wins in the end. Once he gets that drill on Handyman, it's game over.

Big Daddy has head protection.  Handyman has none.  All it would take is a well-aimed drill shot to the temple and the Handyman's "dun fer".

I cast for Big Daddy....vote affirmative!!!!

No one wins and Handyman and Big Daddy realize how silly their names are, aptly opting to film gay porn together as a result.

Nerds Without Pants Episode 236: Low Hanging Marshmallow

You know, in hindsight, it was probably a poor idea to have the bombastic Mike Fallek guest on this episode of Nerds Without Pants, considering we were doing a listener AMA. Oh well, just consider this a learning experience. And even though this is the LONGEST EPISODE OF NWP EVER in a year where we’ve already broken the record twice this year it’s also a banger. Enjoy!
