Re: "Dragon Ball XENOVERSE 2" Official Discussion Thread

Was Ultimate the game that had Freeza voiced by two actors at the same time? That had to be rushed at least on the American side. Sometimes I feel like that Xenoverse is build on the bones of the Raging Blast 2 character models but I am pretty sure that is wrong. Raging Blast 2 probably looks worse...

Re: Which games are the most "shovelware?"

The entire PS3/360 era is the shovelware of Dragonball games. After the franchise had a revival during the PS2/Gamecube/XBox era in the early 2000's due to the franchises popularity in the west, it obviously dropped off after that since the dubs were done and the whole PS3/360 era from about 2007-2...

Re: "Dragon Ball XENOVERSE 2" Official Discussion Thread

Actually, I just remembered a better analogy.

If the DB series was bringing in about two billion yen in revenue yearly in 2011 and increased to over 100 billion yen by 2019, that's a 50x increase.

Dragon Ball games literally went Super Saiyan.

Re: can princess snake be retconned

Well, Princess Snake by herself does not conflict with anything Toriyama established, so she COULD be "canonized" per se. Although, I don't see much of an interest in featuring her again.

Re: Hong Kong Comics Inspired Dragon Ball? - An in-depth debunk of the popular theory

Thank you for clarifying your point. Well, there is ONE thing you missed that Kunzait also missed (and I believe he acknowledged this nuance): not only is the term "wuxia/bukyo" not well known in Japan to begin with, but to be TOTALLY fair... Dragon Ball technically WOULDN'T be considered "wuxia" in...

Re: "Dragon Ball XENOVERSE 2" Official Discussion Thread

While it's fun to imagine some level of wild conspiracy, we already know what the issue was: Sales were plummeting. Why would they do a third game in a series where the sequel sold significantly fewer than the first entry, and sales of all games in the entire franchise were trending downward? Here'...

Re: A little backstory on Caulifla's past would be cool because she has potential as a more relatable character than mos

When I say this, I am referring to the Manga vesion of Caulifla. When Caulifla is first introduced in Dragon Ball Super's manga, she is portrayed as some kind of caretaker for those in need, though she just goes the criminal way about how she survives. Sure, she is a bandit, but she would take good...

Well it's all in that post anyway. The claims Kunzait made were debunked. I suggest reading the full article.

and it's the same with all the yyh and dragon ball comparisons

The similarities between DB and YYH aren't coincidental.

People are recognizing common traits for a reason. It's just a tonal difference, really.

Well actually, I'd love to see Dragon Ball cross over into something like Zu: Warriors of Magic Mountain, just to see how the DB-era senshi would handle the Blood Devil.

Re: All things considered, Paragus is a really sophisticated individual; Saiyans aren't just brutes.

I'll cut down your post into a few points and respond: "Saiyans are typically seen as brutes" That's really due to their demeanor and behavior. They prefer rugged hand-to-hand, ki-based, and Oozaru combat. Their society, as advanced as it sometimes is, does still seem to be borderline primitive at m...

Not gonna lie, I would totally tolerate Tullece's canonization if it came with a few certain things: 1: As mentioned, he's clearly of Bardock's age, if not older. Either the God Fruit restores youth and that's why he looks only as old as Son Goku or have him actually aged up (this wasn't as much of ...

Two chapters dedicated to the fall of Gohan, Krillin, and Bulma, and it felt like such a waste of tim...
