Re: Do you miss the Super anime?

Yeah, it was fun keeping up with it at the time. I was working out in the bush when it was airing, so it was a nice thing to tune into every Sunday at midday to catch the latest. The hope is that if it does come back, they'll be more on top of their game with the production, and that they'll use the...

Re: I think its time to admit that Toyotaro is a terrible writer.

I do find it interesting though because the DBS Broly movie had an absolutely shallow cling to Z nostalgia but because it looked great no one minds. https://images6.fanpop.com/image/photos/33400000/Gogeta-vs-Broly-screen-shot-from-dragon-ball-budokai-3-dragon-ball-all-fusion-33486920-1362-741.png h...

Re: How would you rank DBFZ compare to other fighting games?

I'd say it's been a stand-out for the generation thanks to its visuals and accessibility. The characters are nearly all easy to pick up and play with universal inputs and combo routes. I count myself as someone who knew basically nothing about fighting games until I started playing FighterZ and I've...

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

I know there's plenty of stupidity to go around in the sumptuous buffet this latest chapter has provided us, but has anyone pointed out that it looks like Goku is standing there gawking at Alaskan Bull Worm Moro in his full Ultra Instinct form when he gets hit by the mouth blast? Did he even try to ...

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

Hey, we got a new candidate for Moro's level 3 in FighterZ. That's cool.

So this is how Vegeta becomes useful again, yeah? This is set up so he can use his new power and not have it be a total wash.

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

Now he has unsettled scores with Beerus, Broly and Jiren, Vegeta's just gotten a major power boost and Freeza's still kicking around as well. He doesn't need to risk everything to try and redeem Moro, someone he has no real chemistry with and who got all his power by stealing it from others. He nev...

I've seen some say that this is no different from him helping Piccolo, so why is it a big deal (thankfully it's not that many) ? Here's the 2 major differences between them(although god knows why this isn't obvious): 1- Piccolo didn't hurt anyone. He may have talked a lot about doing so, but he nev...

Re: I think its time to admit that Toyotaro is a terrible writer.

Rehashing things isn't great by any means, but I only remember the anime doing it for certain scenes- Vegeta's Final Explosion in the Tournament of Power for example, which was easily the worst it got. But copying whole plot points is on a different level, and that's what Toyotaro has been doing th...

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

How would you guys feel about characters from other video games showing up? If you had to choose one, who would it be? I'd probably choose Hearts from Heroes , his gravitational powers would certainly be interesting to see in this game. Cumber, Oren, Kamin and Lagss could act as assist characters G...

Re: I think its time to admit that Toyotaro is a terrible writer.

Not going to stop anyone from having an opinion on one version of Super or the other, but I am ... pretty baffled by propping up the anime and putting down the manga specifically on a shared criteria of "repeating things from Z in a shallow way" as a negative. Were we watching the same Super anime?...

Re: The treatment of Vegeta in modern dragonball, good or bad?

I've not been fond of him in most modern Dragon Ball. I think it's kept him very stale by falling back on the same tropes and character beats multiple times. Toriyama still does him best in the movies, but I notice he does that by making Vegeta pretty much a satellite to Goku. If you rewatch Resurre...

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

Since I got into this game, I've started looking at new characters in DB in terms of what could be their moveset in FighterZ. With Moro for example, I'm gonna make a hyper-specific guess: that bit where he appears in front of 17 and 18 with his back to them and does the two-thumbs execution blast wi...

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

I don't think they're going to touch story mode content for the same reason I said a while back that they aren't doing skins- updates for FighterZ are likely being scaled back to focus on Guilty Gear, so we're just going to get the bare minimum to keep the game ticking over competitively. Outside of...

If 18 wasn't wanted for murder before that short, she definitely is now.

Also, anyone wondering why Krillin is wearing one of her brother's shirts? What do those crazy kids get up to?

I'm not actually complaining about that line, it's pretty on par with how Yamcha is treated in modern material. I just think it's a funny contrast to all the heartwarming quotes he gets with everyone else. He's so much fun to play, I wish I could devote the time and energy to master him. I think I'l...

Re: "Dragon Ball FighterZ" Official Discussion Thread

Roshi is tough to learn, there's a lot of muscle memory to unlearn in not having a superdash. Not just in neutral, but following up a launcher as well. People who put the effort in will be rewarded though, he's got some really cool moves and an answer for every situation. I love his dialogue interac...

A bit more footage of Roshi. His Mafuba super seems to force character switch if it doesn't kill. https://twitter.com/BNEesports/status/1304075317993189376?s=19 It also locks down the character it switches for what seems to be the duration of a C-assist cooldown.
