Does anybody remember those cinematic cutscenes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hfl5bX4MQiA

Is there a chance they could make the next game look like that, or would it still fry any machine that tries to play it?
Possibly, depending on how they play with the filters & shaders with the engine for the next game, or if they find a new one to use.
Only dubs that matter are DB, Kai, & Super. Nothing else.

Frankly, the cinematics from DBO just feel more Dragon Ball to me. If an entire game looked like that, it'd be great. And that came out in 2010. Still a shame it never got an official global release.

If they switch to UE4 or 5, they could probably do that, yeah. Look at Kingdom Hearts 3.

That's good to hear, but I'm still kind of worried. I heard that glossy, plastic style they went for XV1 and 2 was a stylistic choice by the producer.

Even tough it is a crap game, Ultimate Tenkaichi still looks better than what XV did so far... and that is sad. More so, that XV2 is basically PS3 era game visually :(

The environment destruction UT had should have been a norm going forward.

Even Legends looks better, and I heard it shares its assets with Xenoverse.

I'd honestly love another Budokai game made on current-gen tech with a good story mode & an expanded combat system based off of Budokai 2 & 3's system. Budokai 2 & 3, especially 3 HD, still look phenomenal, especially compared to XV 1 & 2.

Assuming they've been working on XV3, I can only hope the game looks more like this shader wise. Also, considering the power of the PS5, surely they can make many more things possible now.

Letting destruction/damage on maps from beams or explosions actually stay. Allowing mountains or large buildings to actually be taken down upon impact.

Throughout the years I put together a huge wishlist of things I'd like to see in XV3, so who knows. For all we know they're sticking with the same style and not changing anything graphics wise :lol:

I would love for them to lean into the MMO/co-op elements of the game. I picked up XV again after a long layoff and had a great time playing. There is a lot they can do to improve the game and I really hope we get that XV3 announcement for the next gen. The game did too well not to have another sequel

It'll more than likely be cross gen like XV1 was.

Eh, I feel like if we were gonna hear something tomorrow, they'd have teased it beforehand like they did Xenoverse 2

I think Jump Festa is more likely.

So one time on this thread, I've heard someone say that the music for this game isn't good. And I feel like that's one of the least talked about things about this game. So... let's start a little discussion about the soundtrack of Xenoverse 2! What are you guys' thoughts on it? I personally really like it. There are a couple of stinkers here and there, but there's so much more songs that go from vibin' to absolute BANGERS than there are stinkers that overall makes this a solid soundtrack. (Battle Music 34 is easily my favorite track. FIRE!!!) Now you guys' thoughts!
Caulifla best girl! :)

Besides the one you linked and Beerus' theme (I liked that one), it was very forgettable.

In my opinion the biggest offense was the opening cinematic. Almost every other game had these nicely made intros and even went through the extra effort of making a song just for the opening, but Xenoverse 1 just slaps on a song made 2 years before and gives it the art direction of some cheaply made filler episode; and it somehow managed to be better than the one Xenvoerse 2 had.

Wasn't bad. Just, as was said, kind of forgettable. DBX1, the one song I remember from it, was the rock version of "Cha la Head cha la" by Flow. I, in fact, bought that song on itunes a while back. I still enjoy it. :thumbup:

I agree with the map destruction, but I think Ultimate Tenkaichi's shading would be a step in the wrong direction.

I was thinking it should take after the cutscenes they used for Xenoverse 2, but now I'm leaning more towards a better/cinematic version of RB1 since it looks more like the anime.
