I just got in the Xbox One beta. I downloaded the insider hub and would check it occasionally to see if I got the invite, but I never did. So I deleted the app and like 2 days later apparently every Xbox One player got it. Thanks for looking out guys or else I would've missed the chance to get in.

Can you invite friends in the closed beta? Or is it just going to be online matchmaking?

I can't even play on the Xbox. In fact, I've only seen like 2 people fight in 40 minutes. Hopefully it gets fixed for the other sessions.

Same here. When it's not crashing, it's still near impossible to get into a match. Last lobby I was in had at least 10 people waiting to be matched up with not a single pair fighting.

I managed to get into one match and was disconnected in less than 30 seconds.

I had some good matches on ps4. The graphics and faithfulness to the series (18s palm strike, buu has his babidi head punch move and I'm sure there's heaps more) is amazing.

Had a mix of matches with perfect connections and less than perfect. I realky Like that you can pick a lobby based on country. Whenever there was lag the whole match would just freeze for a second instead of slow down. Which i think i preferred.

The server must of gone down halfway through as i could only do. Trial matches after that. These were just cpu matches with the ai most likely on the easiest level. This was good as i Could wrap my head around the controls finally. R2 is for supers with a combination of dpad inputs. Theres also free specials that dont take meter such as Android 18s kienzan which is qcf square.

Had a great time this game is great.

Yamcha, Tenshinhan and Android #21(Female new character) confirmed in V-Jump. Scans should start popping out soon.
Chiaotzu is an assist character.

New female character! And it's an android! I'm guessing she's the final boss of the game.

Good, new character. Wonder if she was made by Gero or not.

Another thing we can dispense with: the idea that they won't create a character if they have to invent a moveset with no references. Unless she ends up being story mode only, I suppose.

I'll, of course, reserve judgment on Android 21, but I will say that female scientists in anime tend to have a rather narrow range of personality, and I rarely enjoy it. The exceptions are some of my favorite characters, though.

Man this game is fun, with a simple knowledge of fighting games it's very easy to learn. I only got to play Trial Matches however, and the AI is a pushover. I was struggling to figure out the difference between calling an assist and switching characters, and I didn't get to play Vegeta or Freeza at all due to the random character select. Combo's feel fluid and very fun, the flow of battle is fast too, just how I like my ArcSys games.

So far I like Gohan and 18 the most, sad I didn't get the chance to play Vegeta though. Goku feels very close range and also pick up and play, too simple for me. Piccolo will easily be top tier due to his healing and range game. I suck at bulky characters so I didn't enjoy Buu or 16. Kuririn is VERY technical but his flow is good, with practice I might like him. Cell is a very hard to read character with man tricky moves. Trunks has a hard to learn combo game but a very lethal one. All in all every character I played was enjoyable in some way. Hopefully I can play Vegeta and Freeza next beta period.

I can't say I love the concept of Android 21 but I get why they would do it.

Glad that Tenshinhan and Yamcha are finally confirmed though.

I like the design at first glance. She's married?! Maybe she's #16 wife in the game's story...

Wow, her design is a bit different than what he usually draws.

I'm digging The New design for the new character & see, there's no need to worry about the game forgetting yamcha & Tien, because there are now playable

That's her? Not a fan of the design. Does the scan say anything interesting?

Also, for some reason I'm getting Towa vibes from her.

Edit: Married? OOOOOOO, Maybe she's Gero's wife!
