Do you guys think Buu saga but pre-majin Vegeta was stronger than SPC or CG SS2 Gohan?
I'd say he's around SPC.

Re: Has FighterZ made Budokai 3 obsolete?

Budokai 3 used to be seen as the epitome of Dragon Ball fighting games, but pretty much everyone agrees that FighterZ has the far superior combat system. Does that make B3 redundant, or is there anything people would argue that it actually does better compared to FighterZ? I'll derail this thread i...

Re: Has FighterZ made Budokai 3 obsolete?

Not really. They're vastly different games. FighterZ is pretty much Marvel vs. Capcom with Dragon Ball characters. Budokai is a 3D fighting game like Tekken or Virtual Fighter but a thing of its own. It doesn't make Budokai obsolete. It may be better competitively but Budokai is better for that raw ...

Re: Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3 Competitive Tier List

I do appreciate Budokai breakdowns, as I always found the games so stiff (until Shin Budokai, at least) and all the characters being built from a handful of skeletons so obvious that I couldn't find meaningful ways to compare them. The two first Budokai games are certainly filled with clone charact...

Re: Are the Buu Saga SSJ2's (Goku and Vegeta) much more powerful than SPC or Cell Games SSJ2 Gohan?

Vegeta outright stated him and Goku were stronger than Gohan was at the Cell Games so they're certainly stronger than Cell.

It's sorta common knowledge that Gohan was stronger than Cell at the Cell Games. How much is up for debate.

Re: What are the chances of Freeza becoming a genuinely good guy?

Freeza has been given multiple opportunities to change his ways but he threw them away.

He may not be causing for the Z-Warriors but he's still evil to the core and completely content on his ways.

Re: If characters from Dragon Ball appeared as Guest Characters in Mortal Kombat or Injustice

Dragon Ball's a bit too childish for Mortal Kombat, unfortunately. It never really indulged in that over the top ultraviolence outside of a few choice moments because, even though this was 80s Japan, it was still made for little kids. It's like Sonic the Hedgehog and the Mario cast appearing in a T...

Re: Which games are the most "shovelware?"

Would the first Budokai be considered shovelware? All the Dimps fighters the characters move the same way in a fight, but at least Budokai 2 forward there was some depth in each release, with yes, Budokai 3 being considered the best for quite awhile. But Budokai 1 felt lazy as hell. Not even close....

Re: Anyone else think BT2 had one of the worst story modes of any of these games?

Dragon Adventure definitely didn't age well. I liked it just fine as a kid once you have a lot of time on your hands at that age but as an adult, it's a chore to deal with because pretty much all you do is fight and there's A LOT of fighting. Pretty much it's a watered-down version of Dragon Univers...

Re: The original DB Manga and anime adaptations don’t reflect their era much

A lot of the fashion, references, and tech is reflective of its era. The art/animation often looks like it came from 80's/90's.

Re: Is InuYasha A Shojo Dragon Ball?

Sailor Moon has more in common with Dragon Ball than Inuyasha and even calling that "Shoujo Dragon Ball" is a stretch. It's way closer to a Shoujo Saint Seiya. But yeah, Inuyasha is 100% a Shonen series. Look at Osamu Tezuka, he wrote several Shoujo works during his life, like Princess Knight, Twin...

Re: Semi Perfect Cell is Underrated

I like where Toriyama was going with his design. Semi-Perfect Cell is a unique cross between a humanoid and bug creature. I also agree this form was severely underused. Apart from his first appearance, all he did was blow some islands and get his ass kicked. One thing I liked is that while he was a ...

The "Z-Warriors" refer to Goku, Gohan, Vegeta, Piccolo, Krillin, Yamcha, Tien, and Chiaotzu. The all composing team is "Dragon Team".
