Volley Ball Fist ain't really been in a game since Budokai 1. Speaking of which I think this the biggest DBZ game since B1.

Could've sworn RB and RB2 had that as a rush move, with the button inputs(?)

The attack was indeed in Raging Blast 1 and 2, as well as Ultimate Tenkaichi.

I haven't played enough of the recent games to remember if it was in any of them or not, I'm just always amused when I see it though. The move is just so...un-Tenshinhan really, that it's glorious. :lol:

Yeah I know but it wasn't really a spectical in those games like it was in Budokai 1 which is why I said "really wasn't in any game since". It was so fast in Raging Blast 1 and 2 that you could barely tell what it was lol. Not too sure how it looked in Ultimate Blast though.

I think this might be the game where I actually start to look forward to seeing (new) and playing as certain characters again. It's the little things that go a long way!

I know what you mean, B1-B2 put more emphasis on its ridiculousness by its slower pacing and close-ups to goofy facial expression, RB's animation just seems to rush through it and treated it just as a standard imput move.

If that's all you want, then all you want is fanservice, rather than an actual coherent story. And of course those aren't mutually exclusive; you could have a coherent story with "shine" moments! But if a story is perfectly coherent (and I'm really not seeing any compelling arguments that this one is anything but, despite constantly recurring, really poorly reasoned, attempts to argue otherwise), and you're bemoaning the lack of "shine" moments as a reason for the story's poor quality, then you're letting your thirst for "shine" moments obfuscate your ability to detect basic storytelling when it's right in front of you.

Not only that but in UT when you have the Evil voice option, he kinda adds a gay lisp to his voice when performing the attack.

Live Stream has been around for a while now. Also I caught it at the God Eater Trailer about an hour in. I can't go back in the video, it won't show anything so I have no idea what was before that. In any case someone must have gotten the footage and will post it in due time if it did come up already.

Hi Guys,

Just so you know, we should be getting some Dragon Ball Xenoverse footage Friday (16:00 - 16:45 JST) via the Bandai Namco Games LIVE Stream from TGS 2014 here:
http://tgs2014.bandainamcogames.co.jp/live/

Not sure how long the Dragon Ball presentation will be, as One Piece Kaizoku Musou 3 should also get some time.

Hirano San & Uchiyama San will be present for this event.

Here's the schedule. I don't think we'll be seeing Xenoverse for a while.

EDIT: Someone quick with the trigger!

Many thanks!
16:00 to 16:45; I think that translates to 3:00am to 3:45am in my timezone. Good to know if I do decide to try to wake up to watch it that I'll be able to.

That looks so much like BoZ and the faces look so weirdly stern.

I love you. The camera improved. Looks like more combat adjustments need to be made, but it looks a little smoother. I see Vegeta got his Puipui finisher as a grab. I really like Krillin's Super, executed perfectly. I'm still hype.

So I guess that was the PS3 version?

It looks really good.

The game does look really good so far, to me at least. It's still pretty early in development though, and it's hard to say much based on videos of amateurs that don't really know what they are doing. Gonna look forward to the trailer and see what people are capable of during the demo.
