Re: Weekly Shonen Jump chapter

I'm not a fan of those partial colored pages. They only emphasize how the rest of the panel isn't colored. I much prefer just black and white or grayscales.

Re: Which games are the most "shovelware?"

Thinking about it a bit more, while the original Budokai series wasn't shovelware, I'd be willing to include the Dragon Ball Z: Budokai HD Collection as absolute shovelware. Mainly because it reminds me so much of the Tony Hawk Pro Skater HD collection in many ways as well as because it did virtual...

Re: Anyone still play J-Stars Victory VS?

I bought it on sale a few years back but it didn't click with me. I found the story mode very boring.
The fighting was okay, not too bad but not spectacular.

I'd rather see an HD version of the DS Jump games which I found much more enjoyable. (and less generic as well)

Re: A Couple Of Pressing Questions...

1) Toriyama is real, why is this even a question... 2) Super is lackluster IN YOUR OPINION , but since it is so overwhelmingly popular very clearly it's not lackluster for everyone. So instead of asking "why is Super lackluster?", you should instead ask "is Super lackluster? If so, why?" I'm sorry ...

Re: (Early) DBS Slice of Life: Does it work?

I honestly don’t care all that much about the rivalry one way or another. It’s not necessarily my personal favorite aspect. It’s more the fans who need to scream regression or call him Cell Saga Vegeta every time he dares mention wanting to surpass Goku that I find annoying and tiresome What remind...

Re: (Early) DBS Slice of Life: Does it work?

I am not a big fan of DBS but the first episode of the show is one of my favorites, as is is the baseball episode. They work pretty well, don't rely on absurd power scaling or nostalgia bait. I think Super would do well with more of these kinds of episodes since it scales back on the filler needed a...

Re: What is the lamest thing to come out of modern DBZ?

Anyways, that entire Super Dragon Ball Heroes anime special was such a mess. It actually made me miss Super. I think you're exaggerating, we can't compare the two... Also SDBH has better concepts than those used on Super for sure. I was going to say Super had great concepts, but then I remembered g...

Re: Let's Play DBZ Legend of the Super Saiyan (SNES RPG): How to beat it quickly and easily!

I actually bought this one a few months. Pretty fun game, despite the abysmal graphics. I was surprised to learn how fast I went through the Saiyan part.

Re: Has FighterZ made Budokai 3 obsolete?

They're really different games and I like them both. Some things I like about B3 that aren't featured in FighterZ Both games have a great roster but B3 still has some "exclusive" characters such as Satan, Great Saiyman, Uub, Gogeta SSJ4, Goku SSJ4, Vegeta SSJ4,, Majin Vegeta, Omega Shenron, Kid Goha...

Re: Did General Blue save the RR arc?

I agree. He was funny, but also a threat due to his special powers. Really like how he was written. Plus it was refreshing to see a gay character in the show. The whole treasure hunt also added due to the experience and vibe. That being said, it does emphasize how sparsely most of the other RR membe...

Re: What would a reboot have to do in order to comply to today's standards?

It's not that I don't believe you but do you have some statistics to back that up? I was always under the impression that the Japanese people care less about these issues than Europe/America, especially when it comes to racism regarding foreigners. I would be glad to be proven wrong on this. Stats,...

Doesn’t Japanese entertainment for kids still have sexual content to this very day? It doesn’t seem like Japan particularly cares about any ethical concerns regarding exposing kids to that stuff. As Mr. Locust already said: Japan cares. In fact, fuck them in some theoretical universe where they do ...

I agree that he's an interesting character from what I've seen and read. The thing is, he would have been way more unique if he wasn't another Spider-Man but a new character with an alternate identity of his own. I might agree if we were talking about someone else, but Spider-man at this point is k...

I read some interview years ago where he said something like “When I get old I want to be one of those geezers who pretends to be senile so he can watch his granddaughter in the shower.” Extremely weird but coming from him it’s hilarious.
Actually, I think that's more creepy than funny.

Re: What would a reboot have to do in order to comply to today's standards?

I agree. I think that if let's say a gay character is introduced it should be a new character or an existing gay dragon ball character. (actually, do we only have Blue and Otokosuki as gay characters? At least the latter got some positive character development) They shouldn't turn characters gay jus...
