FUCK! I wish I didn't have the urge to open that spoiler tab, though I have to say, I like "his" design. Now I hope the alternate path the game has will provide something drastically different. I'll be avouding spoilers for that!

I'm currently watching a XV1 walkthrough (starting from BoG) for a recap before I get my hands on XV2. Oh yeah!

The final is overall a really good part of the game. Only problem for me is the stage.

Yeah, that battle should've been taken elsewhere.

I hope you resist to look for more spoilers, because the battle leading up to this is quite the ''Ah... Shit...'' moment.

I have some parts that I didn't watch, but most of the stuff was revealed in trailers so I pretty much spoiled the whole game for myself :/

and yes the person who was live-streaming didn't show post credits...I am assuming he doesn't know XV1 had post-credits. and if there is no post-credits I'm assuming Xenoverse 3 won't happen. (which I don't mind, I'd like Burst Limit 2/Raging Blast 3)
Why would no post credits mean there can't be a XV 3? The success of XV decides that.
There is a post-credits scene apperently, but the dude who live streamed it said he'll upload it...his videos got taken down off youtube.

Bandai were a bit slow on taking that down... He got about ten hurs of stream time and around an hour after finishing. :D

This is why I fully advocate the idea that Bandai Namco needs to move towards having developers share assets. The Dragon Ball franchise has so many characters and settings at this point, and it's only continuing to grow. Starting from scratch each time will also only continue to serve as a huge setback in terms of content for each new game in any future series.

They don't have to use the same gameplay and can always tweak models, textures, etc. But just having that foundation would cut loads of wasted resources (time, money, etc).
The only problem is that the Xenoverse models aren't very good. Every character looks fat and stiff. I wouldn't mind if they used them for a new Dragon Ball Heores game or something. Hopefully the Switch will do something like that.

I just said they should share resources. I never mentioned they should start with Xenoverse's. I agree for the most part. Not very fond of them, at least for most characters (mainly the "humans", guys like Cell look fine to me). But still, they could work for a foundation for the next developers to start tweaking them.

Looking at the new episode of Dragon Ball Super, now I wish that Merged Zamas makes into the game within an DLC or update.

They have 4 DLCs to do it, and probably two of the will be based around the Universe 6 Tournament. DIMPS has plenty of time to increase the chance of the merged form making the cut

Okay, why the fuck aren't 2rd/3rd Form Frieza, Android 19, Android 20, and Semi-Perfect Cell in?

Creative reasons in relation to the nature of the story mode for the game. That's my assumption.

Of course it does. Why wouldn't it?

The only person who said it wouldn't was you.

It wasn't mentioned in the games list of trophies unlike last time. No new original characters had been shown unlike last time. There was little to nothing showing there was until this with the game a couple weeks from release whereas it was made very clear from the start with the last game.

I agree. Xenoverse did it with DBO, I'm pretty sure they share everything in Bandai. I really want them to share resources with Raging Blast though!

Anyone know if Super Mira is in the game? If not, then wtf? So badass:

Eh, fair enough. I always figured there had to be more to the story than repeats since there's that egg/sphere thing in the opening cutscene and stuff.

Goku barely took a backseat in the Buu saga, at best he took a leisurely stroll round back while everyone else cried for him to come back.

Because they really serve little to no other purpose than padding from my point of view. I personally dont see what they could contribute to the overall story. Like, what alterations or changes could be done to deviate from the actual history?
