Re: Was Super Saiyan a mistake?

Massive bump, but I want to add that I realize now that Dragon Ball suffers from the exact same problem that afflicts just about all poorly thought out xianxia fiction. Dragon Ball is certainly not original by any stretch of the imagination, and that extends even to its problems— if you ever take th...

Re: Why does Infinite World get overlooked?

It was a bargain bin release and people stop caring about the PS2 by 2008. This. Whenever I think of Infinite World, I think "DBZ shovelware." It's really not that bad, but it's not the kind of game I'd return to. To compare it to an actually great game, think of Grand Theft Auto 3. One of the grea...

Re: What Bardock do you prefer?

Not to sound like a broken record with the Wuxia shit once again Sounding like a "broken record" talking about Dragon Ball's literal genre could only happen on an American Dragon Ball forum. It's like people getting upset that you keep bringing up the term "fantasy" on a Lord of the Rings forum. It...

Re: Seeing the success of dbs broly i wonder if...

I've said it before and I'll say it again: Hollywood was never going to make a proper Dragon Ball film. But Hollywood isn't the only hub of cinema on Earth. Dragon Ball is fundamentally rooted in Chinese fantasy, so naturally a Dragon Ball film would best be made by the Chinese. Anyone who tells you...

Re: Is it okay for Goku to be an divorcee?

Sometimes I think fans think about Dragon Ball in deeper terms than even Toriyama did. Kunzait once laid out my own thoughts on this, and in the same overly-long rambling that I typically do as well. In short: Dragon Ball is a shonen manga for 7/8 year olds and it knows what it wants to be. It's no...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super" Series Official Announcement & Discussion Thread

So, do we have a date for Super return? Or is this still speculation? It's basically sitting in limbo right now. An Italian dub VA confirmed it's coming & Toei's shown off the concepts to investors, so we're just waiting on an official announcement now. First one happened months ago. It sounds like...

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

Ultimate Tenkaichi had a sickening amount of potential, which is one reason why so many people hate it. Yes, it was the first (console) Dragon Ball game to have a character creator, but said creator was severely gimped. Remember, you could only create male Saiyans and you had about three hair styles...

Re: "Dragon Ball Game Project Z Action RPG" Announced.

Its just that RPG games tend to only follow one character. But then again, if this follows the OG db story, it CAN’T just follow Goku as he doesn’t fight all the fights. I’d like a party system. From my experience, RPGs tend to follow parties of characters, more akin to having Son Goku alongside Kr...

Re: "Dragon Ball Game Project Z Action RPG" Announced.

Only time will tell of course, but I'd be very surprised if the game turned out to be a basic 'Raditz to Boo' situation again. Ha, imagine if it's even worse than that and we only get Raditz to Cell again. I don't expect this because it's not 2011 and Namco Bandai aren't cutting corners anymore, bu...

Re: "Dragon Ball Game Project Z Action RPG" Announced.

I just hope we get an actual new character like Shallot as the main character, not a CAC. I'm tired of the voiceless, nodding and purely emoting way your character interacts from Xenoverse. I'd be fine either way as long— if anything, I'd prefer using canon characters so that we can get a proper Le...

Dragon Ball will start airing on Toonami again, this time uncensored Shintani will replace Yamamuro for the Super a...

Re: The Perfect Xenoverse 3/Feedback for Dimps & Bandai Namco

One of the things that people often feel upset about when it came to Xenoverse 1 and 2 is that the CaCs weren't properly voice acted. The limit of their dialog was always a half-hearted nod and over-acted silent reactions, with their only voice clips playing for attacks, injury, and some of the hub ...

Re: The Perfect Xenoverse 3/Feedback for Dimps & Bandai Namco

To keep it going: Guard + X (on PS4) = Ki charge. Don't make me waste a special attack slot just to equip something so utterly basic. Fewer escort missions (is that even the right word?). They really got carried away with this in XV2: more than half the PQs consist of "make sure Character X" doesn't...

Re: The Perfect Xenoverse 3/Feedback for Dimps & Bandai Namco

Reposting my wishes in a more streamlined form, because I've got a few more of them. Xenoverse 3 has the potential to be the ultimate Dragon Ball game for a myriad reasons. The Dragon Ball gaming IP is worth $1 billion, compared to the measly $25 million of 2011 when we got games like Ultimate Tenka...

What Kunzait says. I'm in total agreement. Everyone who repeats the "it can't be done because it's too goofy/wacky" probably grew up watching entirely different kinds of action movies (especially Westernized kung fu movies/action movies that have some punching and kicking and maybe Jet Li or Jackie ...
