Random Game Ideas

Post by FreddleFrooby » Fri Nov 18, 2016 5:04 pm

A simple-ish rundown (might not be able to explain myself right. Long english posts screw me over a bit, not being my first lenguage) of a couple of ideas I've had for a Dragon Ball game. Wanted to share them!

First Idea: Character Variations

A simple concept, may be difficult to actually implement. Variations allow the roster to technically be smaller, and not have to be filled up with different versions of one character.
In the roster you pick, let's say, Goku. After picking him, you'd be given a choice between his variations. Each variation has different transformations and movesets, sometimes even stats. For example: Goku: Early (23rd Budokai to Radditz) would have weighted clothing he can remove, while Goku: Kaio Trained (Saiyan Arc and Freeza Arc) would use the Kaio-ken.

Second Idea: Transformation Tiers

- Permanent: after transforming, you cannot drop back down to an earlier form at will. Examples: Majin Boo's absorptions, Cell's forms, Hirudegarn's super form, Freeza's first four forms.

- Regular: You can access these at will, to drop them, if you please. Hell, even go further beyond, depending on the character. Example: Super Saiyans

- Draining: Upon accessing the form, your stamina rapidly drains, removing your power up. Examples: Freeza's 100%, Kaio-ken

Any thoughts, or questions? Again, long englis walls of text trip me up a bit. I could try clarify any doubts.

I wanna see an RPG or an action game (hell, maybe even a Kingdom Hearts clone) about Gotenks screwing around in the Evolution universe. I'm dead fucking serious.

I wanna see a game that goes from Pilaf to Boo. What a crazy idea. Also Dragon Ball sports game, I made a Dragon Team on Madden 12 (Vegeta at FS, Tenshinhan at SS, Yamcha and Kuririn at WR, Goku at MLB, Gohan at QB, Piccolo at OLB, Goten at RB, Trunks and Roshi at CB and 17 at TE), and it was fun.

An infamous prequel to the awesome game of Dragon Ball Z: Attack of the Saiyans showcasing the childhoods of Bardock, Gine, Goku, and Pan.

P. S. With the secret final bosses being Final Form Mira, Beerus, Hit, and Ize respectively.

The problem would be that about half of DB hasn't gotten any fighters that could fly. Maybe if it's a 2D fighter from the Pilaf arc to the Boo arc, the non-flying people can jump high enough to reach the flying people?

I still want that in-universe Great Saiyaman Beat 'em Up I daydreamed up several years back. Great Saiyaman and Great Saiyaman 2 as the playable characters, protecting Satan City from criminals and all that. And since it's in-universe (ie designed as though the game was made by, and for, people in the Dragon Ball universe) not one-shotting random street thugs would make sense, and a whole range of gag possiblities become available.

And of course, the strongest unlockable extra character in the game would be the illustrious world champion Mr. Satan, right?

Another RGI would be a true sequel to Dragon Ball Z: Supersonic Warriors, all of the non-canon villains being secret final bosses in a Zerg Rush-style match.

I always had an idea for a Turn-based Strategy game, movement would be on a square based grid across various terrains (Flight would be enabled later to add some extra advantages, though keeping yourself in the air would leave you wide out in the open to be attacked). All characters would have a basic punch and ki blast attack, but differing super moves, and as they level up they gain more side effects for their attacks. Like, running up to start pummelling the enemy could have a chance of knocking the enemy back (Maybe into a hazard or a team mate).

Positioning would be key, if you have one character perform a ki super, a nearby team mate can be commanded to add their own power to the attack. When one of your characters who are absolutely vital to your team are in danger of a devastating attack, another character near by has a slight chance of being allowed to get in the way and either repel the attack or take the damage (Piccolo style). Each turn grants the characters one bar of ki, more if the character uses the turn to charge up. Transformations damage near by enemies, enemies could be hit into walls, some pieces of the terrain can be hit into enemies for extra damage. Adding to that there'd be character cards, which are used to give characters passive buffs (Like 'When your health goes below 50% your damage increases' or '50% chance to launch a counter attack') as well as setting a party leader that gives buffs to the entire team (A buff that can be modified with character cards). 'Increases the damage to all Vegeta moves', '25% chance of attacking twice in one turn', '50% chance to become invisible when hit with a debuff', esc.

Along with the usual beam clash, melee clash, fusion mini-games.
When Super apparently shoves Goku down our throats:

I still want an open world DBZ game where you can choose to defend the earth or destroy it like 17 and 18. And whatever is destroyed stays destroyed. The people can start to rebuild or fight back against you if evil. If good you would fight villains as they try to do the same thing.

There'd be small parts of the Z story but is mostly free roam

See? It's perfect, right? Streets of Rage gameplay + Dragon Ball humor, what could possibly be better?

I think such a thing could be easily accomplished if it were a Legacy of Goku or type of game. Flying would let you warp to different areas, just like how it works in Pokemon.

1) Have an Assassin's Creed Animus-style game of Dragon Ball: Xenoverse?

2) Have a crossover with Dragon Ball GT and Crash Bandicoot?

3) Have Zamasu acquire Mephiles the Dark's body instead of Goku's?

4) Have Frieza revive his father and grandfather in Resurrection F?

5) Clone Future Gohan and send him to replace Present Gohan?

6) Have the Masked Saiyan interrupt the fight between SSJ2 Goku and Majin Vegeta?

7 ) Have Teen Gohan train with Goku, Piccolo, and Future Trunks following the Cell Games?

It doesn't matter what genre, as long as the game allows long branching paths.

Lol just made a team like this in NCAA 05. Beat Dartmouth 80-3, Goku threw for 3 TDs rushed for 2, Tien had 2 receiving TDs and an 87 yard kick return to open the game. Chiaotzu to his credit made all the extra points and one chip shot FG. Vegeta had 4 or 5 sacks. And lastly, Gohan rushed for 5 TDs. Forgot to/was to lazy to incorporate Trunks, Piccolo, and the rest of the gang, but later I'm gonna add them in and then make an all-villains team so I can play the Dragon Bowl :lol:

1) Taking on the role of the Time Breakers and having everyone Vegeta knows watch him do his Bingo Dance as a form of revenge for his dickery.

2) Have a distortion in time take Super Vegeta from when he let Semi-Perfect Cell go and leave him when the Big Bang started to create the Universe.

3) Potara Fusion Majin Vegeta (while in his Super Saiyan 2 form) and Present Zamasu together as the reason for a Goku Black-centered game.
