As we head forward into the Dragon Ball video game season for 2012, we thought it would be a great opportunity to also look back at what many consider to be one of the golden eras of DBZ gaming: the Butōden series. Launched in 1993 with Super Butōden on the Super Famicom, the series spanned three mainline games and a slew of spin-offs and upgrades. Our buddy Joe joins us for a walk down memory lane with the series as we attempt to figure out if they were just as much a yearly cash-in as we have seen in recent history, or if Super Butōden 2 really kinda is the greatest thing on the planet.
Episode #0311! VegettoEX and Hujio catch up on a couple weeks worth of news, specifically involving next year’s big new movie. Joe joins us for a trip down memory lane with the “Super Butoden” series as we attempt to figure out if it truly was a golden era of DBZ video gaming, if it was all the same type of cash-in we complain about these days, and if “Super Butoden 2” very specifically was the greatest DBZ game of all time. Your (hugely international!) thoughts on the game series wraps up our jam-packed episode!
