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

I do want to say that Goku telling Moro that if he "trained", then he'd be really strong...is insulting. Goku is blatantly telling Moro that if he only trained the way Goku does could be actually be strong. It's insulting because studying Magic, becoming a Sorcerer, does require training. Just a dif...

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

Heck, a lot of it is built on concepts and premises he's introduced since the start of the Super manga (like needing to train your body before you can actually use ultra instinct efficiently, even before the technique had an official name) . Goku had to do the same thing to use Kaioken. I'm not goi...

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

I'm going to say this; saying "this is just how Goku is" is a complete failure of writing and an attempt to keep Goku as a static, unchanging character. Retreading the same ground again and again and again. The end of the RoF arc covered this. It was meant to teach Goku the lesson of what happens wh...

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

The best way to end this is to undo most of the arc. Have the Grand Priest rewind time all the way back to the confrontation on Namek before Moro got his magic wished back. Have Buu and co kill Moro right then and there. Merus gets to not be erased. And we get to pretend that none of that nonsense e...

Re: "Dragon Ball XENOVERSE 2" Official Discussion Thread

Does anybody remember those cinematic cutscenes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hfl5bX4MQiA Is there a chance they could make the next game look like that, or would it still fry any machine that tries to play it? Possibly, depending on how they play with the filters & shaders with the engine for t...

Re: "Dragon Ball XENOVERSE 2" Official Discussion Thread

I hope to hear some news about XV3 :thumbup: The next game should be announced by the end of the year, so hopefully it's XV3. I'd probably like it if the next game was actually just a much better version of DBO. A much more action/combat MMO, like some others, to keep that Fighting Feel while actua...

Re: "Dragon Ball XENOVERSE 2" Official Discussion Thread

I have only the first season pass and i can do the tournament. I think we only have to complete the main story. Maybe we just need a connection to Internet/servers. I tried the first round (6 vs 1) and they defeated me spamming everything xD (you can't use items to heal yourself). Tried entering ga...

Re: "Dragon Ball XENOVERSE 2" Official Discussion Thread

Should not have to have an online subscription to get Chronoa. Just need to have done all the story missions. Here's the rub though. I've done all of the main story. I did all of the stuff with Fu too. And the tourny still doesn't appear in offline mode. So that means either; A) you need an active ...

Re: "Dragon Ball XENOVERSE 2" Official Discussion Thread

Oh, I've contemplated going PC for X2, but that's still shilling out money not only for another copy of the game (albeit digital), but also the DLC. That gets pricey when all done at once. That's why we need a Complete Version of the game. Those have all the DLC built in. Like Witcher 3, Nier: Auto...

Re: "Dragon Ball XENOVERSE 2" Official Discussion Thread

So the same BS they pulled with an earlier free DLC. GDI. As excited as I would want to be for a Xenoverse 3, at this point I'm concerned that basically 90% of it would be only available if you have PS Plus. Really the only choice in the will be to just go full PC. No more subscriptions just to pla...

Re: "Dragon Ball XENOVERSE 2" Official Discussion Thread

I know, and that's really sad for me (lootboxes, TP medals ecc...). p.s. about getting chrona. The official site says: The martial arts tournament is a recurring event. From "August 26 (Wed), 20.00 to september 2". So see your time zone. And if you're on console, the Tournament doesn't seem to appe...

Re: "Dragon Ball XENOVERSE 2" Official Discussion Thread

I mean, 17 & 18 have canonical names now & they haven't referred to THEM by them at all either, so... The thing about Toriyama, though, is that he tends to make up answers on the spot. I mean, he once said that Krillin has the ability to breathe through the pores of his skin, and I kinda doubt that...

Re: Why Did Vegeta Fail To Lift Magetta?

The problem with this argument is that it would require Toriyama to know how much Katchin that block weighs and then expect fans at home to do the math. That was my point in my last post ITT. Not a single shonen artist is going to project lifting calculations based on the exact size, density, mass,...

Re: Why Did Vegeta Fail To Lift Magetta?

That's just poor writing. Funny how people complained about base Goku in GT struggling to lift a building full of people but hardly anyone mention this scene with Mageta. Because if you don't talk about the bad writing, then it must not exist, right? As we've been seeing more and more; Toyotaro is ...

Re: Why Did Vegeta Fail To Lift Magetta?

Wasn't Freeza's telekinesis supposed to be a special power of his and not the same as the ability of other characters to move things around with their ki? So Freeza could probably use it to lift and move much heavier things than another character without that specific ability. Kachin is also said t...

Re: Why Did Vegeta Fail To Lift Magetta?

Here's what Herms said on the SEG and Goku struggling with it. Herms wrote: It’s worth pointing out that it basically says the reason Goku’s weight training in Heaven was so effective was that he used Bukujutsu to float in midair as he used the weights, which made it much harder. Goku’s never shown...

Re: Why Did Vegeta Fail To Lift Magetta?

I'd say the context is pretty clear . The paneling and dialogue both emphasize that base Goku couldn't lift them at all. There are motion lines drawn from his entire body (as opposed to just his limbs) to visually indicate a downward trajectory the moment they were manifested. Those weights were li...

Re: Why Did Vegeta Fail To Lift Magetta?

As said earlier though, base Goku in the Buu saga couldn't lift 40 tons, even though in base form he's strong enough to destroy a whole planet. One could argue it'd be an inconsistency if suddenly they could lift 25 times that amount with no issue. And as I explained, that inconsistency is due to T...

Re: Why Did Vegeta Fail To Lift Magetta?

I know there isn't much thought put into the numbers but maybe the general idea is that physical strength doesn't increase proportionately with their ki and destructive capacity. For example, kid Goku could lift a car and push a boulder weighing a few tons but couldn't lift 40 tons in the Buu saga ...

Re: Why Did Vegeta Fail To Lift Magetta?

The writers don't put a lot of thought into their numbers. That's incorrect. Toriyama did initially just throw out numbers he thought were big because he really wasn't thinking about it. Which is why he pretty much gave up on trying to give numerical figures for the rest of the series. Toyotaro gav...
