Re: 2021 Dragonball Game predictions?

Yea but this is for 2021. They have to release a game every year no?? They didn't release anything in 2017 or 2019, so it seems like they're on a 2 year schedule. With both FighterZ and Kakarot releasing in January, I expect the next game to follow in January 2022. Whatever it is (probably XenoVers...

Re: A Change of Heart

Never hated a character as a kid but I wasn't fond of Freeza or Mr. Satan. The former because of the dub and the latter due to the Cell Games. As I got older, I saw Freeza as the best villain of the franchise and the Boo arc redeemed Mr. Satan in my eyes as it did many. However, growing up I grew to...

Xenoverse 3 for Q1 or Q2 2021.

FighterZ 2 for Q4 2021.

Both for PS5.

Re: Which games are the most "shovelware?"

(I honestly find it funny how much people will defend Dragon Rush, but trash on Ultimate Tenkaichi's QTEs dispite them both being so shallow) Hardly anyone defends Dragon Rush in fact, everyone agrees it's a terrible mechanic. The difference is Budokai 3's gameplay didn't revolve around it unlike U...

Re: Why do so many people dislike GT Pan?

It's because she acts bratty, constantly causes problems, disrespects Goku, and abuses Giru. Also doesn't help the writer flatout said she only existed to be a dansel-in-distress for Goku to rescue. It's also made even worse considering she's the daughter of Gohan and granddaughter of Goku and Mr. S...

Re: How would you rank Dragonball compared to other Shonen?

It's arguably the best of its era however, plenty of shonen (One Piece, Hunter x Hunter, Attack on Titan to name a few) since then have surpassed it with more diverse cast of characters, deeper and more complex plots, and more mature themes.

How much money goes into an episode of Dragon Ball?

For those who don't know, the average anime has a budget of roughly $100,000 per episode which is a 1/3 of what goes into an episode the average western cartoon which you can tell from the animation alone as anime relies less on movement and more on art. Toei Animation in general isn't exactly known...

So Omega Shenron is coming next? Hope they include his Dragon Thunder.
I bet my left nut Omega will one of the upcoming characters. The other is a toss-up between Raditz, Dabura, Toppo, and Pikkon.

Re: Would you say that GT is more or less liked nowadays?

Not really. It's just a few vocal fans of it came out of the woodshed when Super turned out not to be as good as the original series.

Re: Which games are the most "shovelware?"

On the subject of the battle system of Ultimate Tenkaichi , I believe it was stated back in the day that Spike came up with it as a way of combatting the issue of people spamming the same attacks over and over again online, which was supposedly a big complaint when it came to the RB games. That is ...

I'd be all over a redub for OG Dragon Ball. Kai's dub makes a redub for DBZ a waste of resource.

Re: I feel like the slow pacing for DBZ in the anime and filler works to its advantage

Sharpener and Erasa becoming recurring characters could've given Videl some depth given they were her friends before she met Gohan. Videl now is a mere shell of her former self.

You could easily cut out 16, 17, and 18.
You would have to drastically alter Cell's character in order to make cutting them out work.

The Freeza arc is the only time I felt the pacing is truly terrible and as bad as people say it is, although the Cell and Majin Boo arcs had some pretty rough patches.

I’m admittedly not a huge expert on fighting games, but the Budokai games aren’t really all that difficult to learn. They aren't but they don't play like most fighting games and the games themselves never gave players a real incentive to get better when there's actually a lot more than what meets t...

For fans of DBZ media, probably. For fighting game aficionados? no. Precisely. Because for fighting game aficionados, Budokai 3 isn't a thing at all. To the hardcore, it's just another "2000s anime fighting game" that they might chuckle at and remember nostalgically before going back to exploiting ...
