Re: The artwork of the DBS manga

His art is a weird mix of GT Nakatsuru and Buu arc Toriyama, although the way he draws muscles is definitely unique. I wouldn’t mind his art so much if it was actually expressive, but he always rehashes the same faces which is quite obvious with Goku. Not to mention how he is also always reusing the...

Re: How have the actions of Goku and others benefited Dragon Ball's Earth?

Goku defeated the Red Ribbon army, which was quite well known and feared, and also cleaned the world off its most brutal assassin Tao Pai Pai (at least for a while) and later on Master Roshi’s speech to Tenshinan at the 22nd Budokai spared the world from a new Tao Pai Pai. Roshi also helped out a wh...

Re: Your ONE favorite character and your ONE favorite version of him/her

Every time this question arises, I have a hard time thinking of my absolute favorite character of Dragon Ball. I like many characters almost the same, for different reasons. I admit that I tend to change my opinion over time, also based on whatever last Dragon Ball arc I have seen/read or, when Supe...

Re: "Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot" Official Discussion Thread

Is the shadowing randomized like Xenoverse? I think it definitely is because it ends up looking quite bad at some points. They could easily fix it by making it two tones if they aren’t willing to put in the effort to shade the models themselves like ArcSys did. It’s funny because probably the base ...

Re: "Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot" Official Discussion Thread

So I’ve tried to take matter into hands and show, visually, what I dislike about the models. It turns out that the models are actually more than fine, but the shading is ruining them. I think the main problem is that the shading is three tones and it ends up doing more harm than good. I would sugge...

Re: When Will We Ever Get Out of the Boo Fight - End of Z Rift?!

The end point of this kind of development, or rather lack of development, is a kind of "Dragon Ball Simpsons", where arcs don't actually matter anymore and whole stories can just be skipped if you want because they change nothing. RF and the Trunks arc can be skipped and very little will feel out o...

Re: "Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot" Official Discussion Thread

I will also repeat how my complaints mostly have to do with the game’s art direction which is lacklustre. I can even stand the low textures stuff, bad lightning, bad shading on the models, bad models or whatever bad graphical quality this game has but at least if they had some competent art directo...

Re: When Will We Ever Get Out of the Boo Fight - End of Z Rift?!

Personally I don't mind having multiple stories within this 10 year gap. Look at One Piece for example, the strawhats are actually lucky to get a few days break. One Piece has been like that from the start. DB, like you pointed out, has always changed from one arc to another so it's part of what ma...

Re: "Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot" Official Discussion Thread

Bro, you do know that BoTW is AAA game, right? And Kakarot isn't right? I know, but it will still be sold at the same price as BOTW (or maybe even higher). With all the money they have made in the last few years with Dokkan Battle, Xenoverse, FighterZ and Legends I was hoping they could start treat...

Re: "Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot" Official Discussion Thread

First off, It’s more that you dont like the art style than it is that the game was just poorly made. Most are saying the game looks great and that CC2 is killing it (as they have done with the Naruto UNS series). Heck, this looks better than every DB game we’d have since Battle of Z besides Fighter...

Re: Official On-Going Dragon Ball Super Movie Thread: "Broly"

While the movie looked indeed gorgeous and had amazing animation, I wished it had fewer flashy fights and more grounded/slowed down ones. Some fights, especially in the Gogeta section of the movie, were just way too fast and filled with effects. I was hoping for some more varied and memorable choreo...

Re: Did Ultimate Tenkaichi have potential as a full series?

I don’t understand why they couldn’t just completely re-use Budokai Tenkaichi 3’s fighting system and basically make UT a BT4 with pretty graphics and Hero Mode. If it was a PS3 spiritual successor to the BT serie gameplay-wise (but with created characters) I bet it would have sold much better.

Special beam canon cutscene: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=udVKFsjb7Fo Def one of the smoothest and fluid iterations of the scene I've ever seen in a db game. Love the look of Gohan powering up.

The landscapes being too empty is a valid complaint me and others have had. We could have some dinosaurs, animals, NPCs etcetera. You mean...the three things that we very much have seen? Dinosaurs , animals , and NPC's ? Heck, for NPC's we even have seen footage of Goku approaching and talking to A...

So, again, they look fine. Why is that a bad thing? I am sorry but they don’t. If the game was made 10 years ago I would agree with you, but we are in 2019 and the game is coming out in 2020, yet the models are such a huge step down from FighterZ. If they aren’t able to provide quality ones they sh...

Re: "Dragon Ball Z: Kakarot" Official Discussion Thread

I've said it before, and I'll say it again - not everything has to look like FighterZ now, nor should it. Yes, FighterZ artstyle is amazing, but to expect every single Dragon Ball game to look the same now is setting yourself up for a major disappointment. Expecting every DB game to look like Fight...

I also cross my fingers that they will be able to improve the graphics a bit because there’s really no excuse for this, a XB1/PS4 game, to look worse than Zelda BOTW. I hope they can at least improve the cel-shading so that the game can look more anime-like. There's no excuse for it to look... Dece...

The battle system really does look boring, except for the parts in which Raditz starts using ki attacks and the player has to dodge/block them, that’s a classic RPG thing which I liked. I just hope there will be some varied combos and that lots of attacks/combo strings will be learnable as that woul...
