Re: Stupidest thing Frieza has done

The classic final blast to Goku on Namek. This is a rare, stupid way to waste a miraculous chance to survive against an unstoppable force that almost finished you! It's like barely escaping a building on fire when you were about to die, so stuck that you pointlessly begged someone or something for y...

Re: Predictions for FighterZ 2 roster

Just like always with competitive fighting games, the roster will be severely cut from the current one that includes all DLC content, both because of the graphics being updated a bit (which in the case of Arcsys, will probably mean "redrawing" every sprite) and gameplay updates. Three things will li...

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

Ah, this game is so wonderful to watch that it saddens me that there won't be new content now. And no announcement of Fighterz 2 with glimpses of it either. This is the trough of the wave where we don't get anything new from Fighterz 1 anymore, and don't have any info or visual to dream about Fighte...

Re: "Dragon Ball XENOVERSE 2" Official Discussion Thread

Plus the trailer has Fu weakening Gogeta during the DBS Broly fight. Which would, logically, result in Gogeta getting instantly murdered. And then SS2 Caulifla shows up and we're supposed to believe she could content with FPSSJ Broly. I'm afraid a certain number of fans will take this as an officia...

Reinventing colors: some ideas you would consider

Though the idea is totally unrealistic, just imagine that the ones in charge of a new product (whether it's Toei, Shueisha or one of the game companies) is entrusting you the role of giving a new, refreshing, reinterpreted visual take , on the franchise for this very specific product, by freely rein...

Re: Fan Works Explosion

Obviously, I didn't draw anything myself, but I had fun editing the great artworks from Legends together into new movie posters or new DVD/Blu-ray covers for a few DBZ movies. I might as well just drop them here instead of letting them rot in my folders. For each movie, I made two versions (one coul...

Re: Is anyone annoyed that the revival happened?

I am VERY grateful that the revival happened with lots of extremely interesting material that keeps me fascinated with the franchise and expands it, making it more fascinating than ever! Once there's no new elements added, anything gets dead and you leave it behind because there's simply nothing to ...

Re: How long until Mr Popo gets cancelled?

I've known Dragon Ball my entire life, and even as a kid, I NEVER saw Mister Popo as being a stereotype of any sort or related to black people. Even to this day, I look at Black from the Red Ribon arc and I do see a black man, but I look at Mister Popo, and I see an undefined humanoid creature with ...

Re: What character can carry a TV series?

Probably Future Trunks after the Zamasu arc: having him and Mai existing in a world where there are already doubles of them was a great idea and could lead to very interesting adventures in case of a new enemy. They would just need a sure way to distinguish the two sets, so the duo we know would pro...

Re: Between Vegetto and Gogeta, which of them should get Ultra Instinct and Ultra Ego?

Since the Broly movie, I consider them the same person, just with slightly different physical traits due to the different fusion process. Which is why I like that in the French Anime Comics, Gogeta says "with the potalas, my name was Vegetto", showing he feels like it was him all along and that Vege...

^ And the devs have skills for the direction, the staging (even though they have to be quick about it when it comes to Dramatic Finishes, but it still shows the impressive direction they are capable of to make things look epic). There could be beautiful graphics but boring direction, but those guys ...

Re: Most Wanted FighterZ Character

My choices are based on visuals and presentation rather than actual gameplay possibilities, which I don't care too much about. - Jaco - Mister Satan - Ribriand - Bergamo - Magetta (though this would be possible only if other characters don't have insulting lines they can throw during fights). - Tapi...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

I like Goku going "angel form" and Vegeta going "demon form" Hakaishins are gods, not demons. Yep, I know that, this is obvious in the story. I'm not talking about what angels and demons are in-universe, but the general idea that we usually have of them, hence the quotation marks I used to say it l...

Re: "Dragon Ball Super (Manga)" Official Discussion Thread

Basically, Goku doesn't become an angel but gets closer to the angels' way of being, so it's only natural that he adopts Angel-like traits (the silver hair and eyes and moves based on subtlety and evasion) and Vegeta doesn't become a God of Destruction but aligns with the way they are too, so it's n...

Re: Ultra Ego... what about calling it Ultra Impulse?

The notion of impulse would actually fit better with Goku's form than with Vegeta: it's something that comes up suddenly and makes you act immediately without much of a thought, with the definition going " a sudden strong and unreflective urge or desire to act ." For Vegeta, it's all about being ver...

Re: "Dragon Ball XENOVERSE 2" Official Discussion Thread

To get back to the subject of Xenoverse having Fighterz graphics, I guess it would not be possible to pull off. If I'm not mistaken, Fighterz 's devs handcrafts shadows and deformations, taking advantage of the fact that the camera is preset in a precise way at all times. And they take a lot of time...

Nice, thanks for the info, guys! It's always nice when hardcore players have a lot of things shaken up, they should be the number one target after all. But I'm always glad when the devs go far enough that even casual fighters can notice that things have evolved a bit (even though it's only natural t...

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

I'm glad that this patch can bring back interest for the many players who dive deep into game mechanics (that's the number one objective for a fighting game after all), but I wonder if this patch would make the game seem any different for a casual that doesn't care about fighting game mechanics.

Re: If Cooler becomes canon, where has he been this whole time?

Probably locked away by Freeza - who already doesn't want his father around anymore because it would get in the way of him doing what he wants. Maybe it's even the way their family works: the sons battle, whoever loses gets locked away for being "useless" while the other ones inheritates the empire,...

Do you think fusions could use Destruction and Ultra Instinct?

Fusions are supposed to combine aspects and technics from both fighters, which usually mean that they can use all moves from either of the original warriors. But as depicted recently in the manga - and even in the anime when it comes to Ultra Instinct -, very specific personality traits, state of mi...
