I could have sworn that it was 29.99 GBP the other day. I just decided to go and pre order it since it was a better price than the physical copy, but was slapped with a 39.99 GBP price tag instead. Am I going crazy? Was there a limited time deal with a special price?
Quite possibly. I'm positive I saw the PS3 version go from $49.95 AUD to $89.95 overnight too.

Do we know yet how Ultimate Gohan works in this game?

It's the equivalent to Goku's SSJ3 basically. Highest drain with the highest attack boost and it's mapped to his standard orange gi outfit(though he has SSJ2 in orange gi as well).

When it runs out, your stamina is greyed but it won't matter as Gohan is so strong naturally, the opponent will likely be either dead or close by that time.

Ah, so it's a temporary form? That's really silly.

Also, in the icons, it clearly had Ultimate Gohan in his blue gi. Is that at all possible in game?

Not without a costume update via DLC? There is only one blue dogi for him, and it has a Super Saiyan form equipped.

That's how it worked for Dimps' games since Budokai 2 bro and if you're fighting against him and get hit, you'll see why it being temporary is a good thing.

Watching that character/outfit video now, and it's kind of disappointing how many of Goku's alternate outfits are just different takes on his orange gi, even two or three different variants of his battle-damaged version of that outfit. :/ That said though, I do really like that he and Ginyu both get each other's bodies as alternate outfits. I never thought we'd see a game handle that like this, and that's probably the best way they ever could actually.

Wait, wait, so Krillin doesn't even get his Boo arc outfit or his hair?! Oh c'mon now! :crazy:

That's neat though - one of Appule's alternate colors is that one other alien that looked just like him. Er...the poor schmuck who came upon the village Vegeta destroyed and came back to tell Freeza about how he killed the only surviving Namekian witness there.

It seems interchangeable with the dog trick, so it'll probably be localized as "play dead".
Haha... Guess that's my new phrase of the day.

This makes me sad for yamcha because he is not that bad. He was doing great against the saibamen, so great that he got arrogant or cocky and stopped paying attention.

Very cool, there seems to be a little more free roam then I previously realized.

Should keep names secret so no one steals them. :P
Not that I would. I got better ones. :wink:
But am using my forum name of Zelvin. So there's no hiding it for me.

Name: Zelvin (Zero Kelvin)
Race: Arcosian (Freeza Clan)
Personality: Cool, intelligent, abides by personal code.
Occupation: Galactic Hunter (aka Bounty Hunter), member of G.H.O. (Galactuc Hunters Organization); a group formed to capture criminals across the galaxy that're beyond the scope of the Galactic Patrolman, whether it be the Law or ability. GHO was formed to do what the GP couldn't and functions in areas of space outside their jurisdiction. Members of GHO are often employed by the counsel of the Galactic King or GP by bounty postings, as well as by AFCW (Alliance of Free Civilized Worlds), which was created after the original death of the space tyrant Freeza and his father King Cold, leading to numerous star systems breaking away to acquire their independence.
Power Level/Battle Power: Indeterminate at this time.

DBZ names are literally just japanese puns on fruits, vegetables, refrigerators or undergarments...if it's hard to make up their own the mind of them must be extra shallow.

Does the game allow you to play with your created character locally?

Goku didn't die in GT. The show sucked him off so much, it was impossible to keep him in the world of the living, so he ascended beyond mortality.

I'm just about done with the concept of reboots and making shows that were products of their time and impactful "new and sexy" and in line with modern tastes and sensibilities. Let stuff stay in their era and give today's kids their own shit to watch.

I always side eye the people who say "Now my kids/today's kids can experience what I did as a child!" Nigga, who gives a fuck about your childhood? You're an adult now and it was at least 15 years ago. Let the kids have their own experience instead of picking at a corpse.

I don't see a reason why not, so i think it is likely possible.
