Re: Games You Owned but Never Finished

Piccolo's Revenge and Infinite World. I actually liked PR, but I got stuck at Tao Pai-pai and lost interest, with IW I barely got past the opening mission where you're required to pull off certain techniques in order to advance the story. One day I'll need to give it a second crack, but I think I wa...

Re: Hera Clan

Trying to reconcile the existence of Bojack and co. into continuity just hurts my brain. What's so hard about a band of aliens that Kaio sealed long before anything in the series proper began? Normally I wouldn't try to make it fit at all, but movie #9 is deceptive in that it looks like it could po...

Re: Google Glass Project = DBZ Scouters

The technology itself sounds like a good idea to me, but until they design it so that you don't look like a guy wearing a weird eye-glass on your face I don't believe it will catch on. I just can't see people wearing those in public without getting weird looks.

Re: Hera Clan

Trying to reconcile the existence of Bojack and co. into continuity just hurts my brain. I liked to entertain the idea that they were actually evil Kaioshin because of their physical features and style of dress. By the way, where did you get the term "Hera Clan" from? Was that from movie 9's blurb i...

Re: Kaio Ken x Super Saiyan

I like to think that this "Super Kaio-Ken" technique is only made possible when Goku's body is already dead which allows him to use more dangerous/impractical techniques, like when Goku realized how difficult transforming into a SSJ3 was on his body only after he used it after returning to life. If ...

I personally choose to believe that the movie is canon to the anime storyline, since it's the first time we see Goku's Ryu-ken , a finishing technique that we see a lot of in Dragonball GT. This is usually a non-issue though since most fans choose to discount the movies and GT (not to mention a huge...

Yeah...of all the "what-if" scenarios they could have picked from, they went with one that played like a lame Raditz fan-fiction. :roll: Dissapointing considering the first Sparking actually had some better ideas.

They did sense Cold's ki eventually; I think Freeza's was more noticeable because they had already fought him before, not because Cold was beneath notice. If I remember correctly, all they really say about Cold was that he had a more "terrifying" ki than Freeza's, and there's more ways to interpret ...

I would say no...I'm sure Gohan could have transformed into a SSJ2 any time he liked after coming out of the room of time and spirit. He was just young and inexperienced (relatively speaking on the latter). If Goku had been just as strong as Gohan I would bet he would be able to transform without an...

While an actual fullscreen release of Dragonball Z from the Dragonbox masters sounds tempting (I don't give a damn about the Spanish dub, I'll take one in my native language before another) didnt the Spanish DVD's have their own technical problems? I seem to recall someone pointing out that they had...

I know exactly what I would ask him, though it wouldn't be a simple question. I would sit down with him with a list of all the Boo saga characters, and ask him to rank them in order of strength. And then if any descrepencies came up (due to forgetfulness for example) I'd ask him to elaborate. Chance...

Those videos were awesome, it's just too bad nobody (that I know of) knows how to "hack" the game to do all the things this person apparently did. I'm still waiting on the reliable way to cheat Bulma into the game.

This is an easy one: Broli : Freak? No, I'm the Devil ! Haha! Bardock : I will change my fate...Kakarrot's fate...and your fate Freeza! Wicked lines that got butchered for the dub, and then mysteriously appear in Sparking Neo. Almost makes me feel like doing some 're-dubbing' of my own. :twisted:

If anyone's interested, I've whipped up a wallpaper with the images provided. Nothing too pretty since I'm no photoshop expert, but it works for me.

A thought occured to me; is the concept art of the boy and girl drawn by Toei, or by Akira Toriyama?

I'm hoping that the player won't be forced to play as a hero, the thing I liked the most about games like City of Heroes/Villians and World of Warcraft, was that I could choose my side.

Ah, that's true. I guess it really does qualify as OVA since it is original animation, even if the story was derived from a video game. But I'll still argue that it's not a movie, no more so than a paper back strategy guide is a novel.

I don't think it counts as an OVA. While it was released on VHS, the footage wasn't part of an actual movie. It was a fancy looking strategy guide on video, and was marketed as such. Toei considers it an OVA, but only because there's no other way to really market this animation.

I had an idea how this game could work so that not everyone is Vegeta and Goku clone, or there isn't a million Super Saiyans running around. Instead of choosing your character's race, you should choose your class (Warrior, Healer, Magic, etc) and then you should customize your appearance from multip...

That image summed up all MMORPG's quite nicely. :lol: But if it didn't put me off WoW, I doubt it will stop me from playing a Dragonball game.

I can't wait to see what the character creation process is like...can anyone say Super Chi-Chi?
