Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

So apparently ArcSys dropped at New Game Plus Expo that they were considering rollback netcode for their other games. Now everyone is getting their hopes up and putting out a bunch of hashtags going around for FighterZ and their other games- #DBFZrollback, #BBTArollback, #GBVSrollback, even #P4Uroll...

Re: Dragon Ball voice actor connections in Attack on Titan (+others)

Yeah, if you've heard one Funimation dub you've kind of heard them all. They've got a wide pool of jobbing non-union Texans that fill out their casts. Which has been growing over the years to its credit. Dragon Ball stands out because it includes a bunch of legacy cast members who don't do much dubb...

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

As much as I'm curious to see Moro in either this game or a sequel, I wouldn't want another Hit or Goku Black situation where he's shoved into loads of titles before Toei have committed to the character's portrayal. I'm pretty sure it's thanks to Xenoverse that Sean Schemmel started doing that goda...

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

Been hearing nothing but raves about Guilty Gear Strive's rollback netcode following the recent beta. Given that it's the same developer and publisher, I hope we'll be able to see something like that come to FighterZ in the near-future. I haven't played the game much recently, but in my last few ses...

Re: In a fighting series, why is it problematic to discuss the power-scaling of the characters?

Funnily enough, back in the Super anime days, i was a big defender of the show's, hm...fast and loose approach to power scaling. I'm not asking for perfection, as I can accept some things being a bit off, but not to the point where Krillin or 17 are holding their own against Blue Goku. Those fights...

Re: In a fighting series, why is it problematic to discuss the power-scaling of the characters?

I'd just like to point out that when I made my previous post, I didn't notice this topic was in the 'Super' board and assumed it was about the whole franchise. I'd say my point still stands though.

Re: In a fighting series, why is it problematic to discuss the power-scaling of the characters?

When is it ever shunned? Like 90 per cent of the discourse around this series boils down to talking about strength/power scaling. If you think there is a backlash against that kind of talk, it's probably from people annoyed that strength debates are such a prominent topic, and who would rather give ...

Re: If Vegeta won the TOP, would he wish back all universes or just U6?

Probably yes and they should have only bring back Universe 6 & 11 if you ask me. Why? Given that the ToP was supposed to be a test of character for mortals and that Zenos would have erased everything if they hadn't brought back all the universes...what would have happened if Vegeta had won and only...

Re: The "Team Four Star" actors were blacklisted by Funi and Toei rumor

So recently Megami33 was cast as Momonosuke on One Piece. I want to examine just how much truth this rumor has if any. She's been in a bunch of anime dub roles at Funimation. As have other actors associated with TFS- Justin Briner, Chris Guerrero, Howard Wang, Amber Lee Connors are all prolific act...

Re: Where did the "Kuh-May-Uh-May-Uh" pronunciation come from?

I think they use the correct pronunciation these days. I can’t remember if it’s in Kai, but in FighterZ and Super, it’s definitely the Japanese pronunciation. I think Sean Schemmel said in an interview that the only difference between him and Nozawa when it comes to doing a Kamehameha these days is ...

Re: Toriyama should follow the Harry Potter movies' example and continue DB in a spin off

With situations like this, I'm glad Toriyama generally keeps quiet and doesn't feel the need to spread his political beliefs. Because...they're probably not great. Regardless of what his personal beliefs are, I think it's important to judge the work on its own, separate from the artist. If we find ...

Re: Toriyama should follow the Harry Potter movies' example and continue DB in a spin off

People with shitty beliefs make pretty shitty stories. It's not really possible to separate the two. I'd tend to disagree, as I am a fan of the works of H. P. Lovecraft, even though he was a really terrible person in real life. Some of his stories have some very cringeworthy elements because of his...

Re: Another transformation gets sent to the retirement home

I'd say it's got a lot in common with SSG- it was the debut of the concept, it captured mainstream attention, introduced a world of possibilities...and then was immediately supplanted by a superior version that was less popular as a result. I think people have come around to the full UI now, but so ...

I mean...a spin-off isn't inherently a bad idea. You picked a bad example because those movies were garbage, and so is JK Rowling. But, you know...Jaco was a good example. It was also pretty original despite being set in the DB universe- I wouldn't want some lame obvious spin-off like, I dunno, the ...

Re: So its been many years, are alternate hair colors for Super Saiyan transformations a good or bad idea

I don't mind them - I prefer the simple designs to something like Super Saiyan 4, if only because they distract less from the action, if that makes sense. The issue is how they were handled- we got a bunch of them in a relatively short time. At least Ultra Instinct has had a good run- the next power...

I was watching a video compilation someone made of all the supers in this game, and I had no idea that evil 21 has a unique super used only in her last boss fight. It's nothing special, it's basically a souped up version of Fat Buu's level 1 with a long charge up (similar to Recoome's Ultra Fighting...

Re: How is Hell able to contain these increasingly strong villains?

The old anime filler version of hell never made sense because of that issue, and the fact that it had not one, not two, but three villain jailbreak plots proves that. The first instance of the now-canon hell we see in Resurrection F makes it clear that villains are simply powerless to escape, which ...

I don't know why people want Caulifla when you already have Kefla? It would be like adding Goten when we already have Gotenks.
Who's asking for that? But even so, we're about to get Gogeta 2: Furry Edition, would Caulifla (or Goten for that matter) really be so egregious?
