Re: What you found savable of the DBS anime

I preferred the anime on the whole, but if we're going with specific examples in contrast to the manga version, then let's see: * Blue Kaioken. The scene hasn't aged terribly well, and I think a big part of the initial hype for it's first appearance was any port in a storm. The show had gotten off t...

Re: I feel like the Super anime (or a continuation of it?) has been quietly canceled

Do people really expect the Moro arc to be 1:1 when its adapted? Not counting random fillers thrown in here and there. I think story wise it might be altered. I think Goku throwing the senzu bean to Moro will be cut in the anime. The backlash to that was too strong and it doesn't feel like somethin...

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

Is it worth mentioning that we just got done with a season 3 with arguably the highest quality lineup of characters released yet, and the weak link was Kefla? Everyone in that season was really well made, with bigger and more technical movesets and yet compared to everyone else, she was just an abo...

Re: Would you Have Auditioned for Super?

A few people have mentioned the issues with moving to Texas, but I don't think that was a big issue for Super because of their capacity to record remotely. Isn't Sean Schemmel himself based in LA these days? I know Matt Mercer and Patrick Seitz are. The regionalism of voice acting is interesting to ...

Re: Goku and Vegeta have now gotten so strong.. That an enemy actually has to WISH

There's always gonna be a hand-wave justification for the next strong enemy. We've had naturally gifted (Freeza, Broly, arguably Vegeta and Piccolo Jr initially), artificially gifted (Cell and co), magical (Buu, Moro), divine (Beerus, Zamasu), hard workers (basically every tournament antagonist with...

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

So... everyone's just another Goku, essentially? Just the Goku's. There's at least five actual Goku's, two not quite Goku's and then three half Goku's. Gotenks is a Goku and a Vegeta and a Trunks Cell is a Goku, a Vegeta, a Piccolo and a Freeza Cell arc Gohan is a Goku and a Piccolo because he wear...

It's Goku with a bandana and a different name. And different outfit. And different story. And different power. And different personality. With a scar. Isn't easier just to say he's a different character altogether? No because the story is irrelevant for this fighting game and the powers don't mean ...

Re: In a fighting series, why is it problematic to discuss the power-scaling of the characters?

I had this thought a while back that DBS has been using characters being strong enough to fault spacetime as the new feat of strength when being able to destroy a planet/solar system just isn't enough. We had it in the anime version of Goku vs Beerus, multiple examples of it in Hit's fights, and Gog...

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

I've been on the receiving end of a couple of Gogeta instakills so far. First time lost me the game, second time I managed to turn it around. Also, the second time it happened, he got my assist call, but somehow my assist survived, albeit with a huge chunk of blue life. Not sure how that happened, b...

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

Gogeta SS4 owes most of his hype and reputation to the video games he's appeared in. You can tell because the Big Bang Kamehameha isn't animated like it was in the show, because the way it was animated in the show wasn't very good. Plus his appearance in the show was underwhelming and the episode ca...

He also nicked a move from a different series at one point- Yusei Urameshi's spirit gun during the Caulifla and Kale fight.

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

We had a leak dailogue with SSj4 Gogeta and Super Yi Xing Long a while back. I doubt they scrap any plans for future DLC. That line (the 'Can you hit me here? My shoulder is killing me' one) is actually in the game now- it's a generic win quote. So I think that theory might be scuttled at long last...

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

Seeing a bit of despondency on the timeline re FighterZ- I don't know if there was an official announcement, but everyone is convinced that this is indeed the end of the games support. I'm not so sure about that- even if SS4 Gogeta is the last character (which I would be absolutely fine with tbh), I...

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

You think A16's obvious tell and slightly slower hop is easier to kill than a basic combo into level 1 Super, or using assists to open an opponent up to do a Level 1 Super? SSJ4 Gogeta needs to level up 7 times and then perform the level 3, it's a far bigger requirement than #16. Regardless both ar...

So this is the final final one? There didn't seem to be any hints for Season 4 No mention of anything new at the event. And considering Gogeta is filling the missing spot, and they put out a new intro video for the game including every character up to him, it seems like this might be the last seaso...

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

The Dragon Balls and the insta kill level 3 will never come into play . That double dash is freaking ridiculous. He has no neutral. I don't know if he will be broken. Patch notes now, UI getting hit! Of course it will. There are plenty of ways to keep the opponent off of you to prepare both. Just w...

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

I don’t think Gogeta looks that broken. The instakill and Dragon Ball thing look like gimmicks, and his actual DP hit box ain’t that big. He has the double airdash and specials that let him close in fast, but no ranged options outside of that. His counter looks good, but it’s got nothing on Jiren’s....

So apparently ArcSys dropped at New Game Plus Expo that they were considering rollback netcode for their other games.
