It's as fitting as the "Time to make the donuts." line from XV2... I can't imagine him killing people with that theme playing on the background.

That kind of theme maybe could work for characters like Great Saiyaman, Satan, Jaco or Katoplesa.
A world without Dragon Ball is just meh.

It's just a matter of days until V-Jump leaks, if Android 21 is not the 24th character but a secret one, I bet on Broly or Vegetto for the last slot.

Probably means that he was expecting some badass rock/heavy metal music theme instead of 60's jazz. Don't know if it fits the character, but it definitely sticks out like a sore thumb when put next to all the other clips.

I have pre-ordered FighterZ Ultimate Edition from the PS Store of Europe. But it tells me I have no permission to access the Beta. What's the problem?

Got into the beta, not getting any matches in the Australian lobbies. Went through all the tutorials, but might have to hold out playing actual matches until the matchmaking gets sorted.

First time playing the game, it's pretty fun. I am still really bad at quarter-circle motions, but that will only improve with time.

Turns out I had to purchase the early-access beta unlock as well as the beta itself, so it worked.

Game's really fun, although I had a little trouble understanding the difference between R2/R1 and X's functions.

Couldn't get into an online match as well, but I played the tutorials a bit. Decided to wait until the final product. It runs perfectly though, and it's a gorgeous looking game. Action is frantic and really fun. Casuals will have a blast doing lots of cool looking things without really knowing how they're doing them and there's a lot of depth for the hardcore fans as well.

A really well-done game by ArcSys, and definitely the best 2D fighting game with the Dragon Ball brand on it.

I have the beta and the early access installed and yet I still can't initialize the network... What's the point in an extra day if that extra day is just fixing issues?

I think you may have answered your own question there.

People who got on earlier had trouble getting matches, hence the network maintenance going on at the moment. My guess is they want to have everything sorted before the proper beta opening tomorrow, so the pre-order people were basically guinea pigs. Sucks, but at least we still get the Blues early.

On the plus side, the trial matches are fun, even if the AI opponents are basically glorified practice dummies. Also I'm playing with the English voices, and while the acting itself is good (seriously, if someone hadn't told me that Daman Mills was voicing Frieza, I might have thought it was still Chris Ayres), it unfortunately has a couple lip-syncing issues similar to Xenoverse. Most of them aren't that bad, just a few out-of-sync lines, but I noticed a glitch where Android 18 cuts off 17 while he's talking in their intro.

They seemed to have changed the colours for characters since the last beta. Goku's lighter orange manga colour gi is gone. However I can confirm colours do affect Golden Freeza's transformation with his globe colour being his body colour. For example I'm costume 4 which is a blue and in Golden he has a metallic blue body.

Yo, if you watch the replays in Replay mode, it has commentary from the World Martial Arts Tournament announcer! That's a nice touch.

I dont think heavy rock fits an emotionally subdued hit man. It would be so strange, especially when arksys have shown they can make fitting badass music like this. Something in line with Slayers Havent You Got Eyes In Your Head fits Hit well

These are some of the special quotes between characters. Loved that "Son Goku" thrown in there, although that specific quote isn't really related to Nappa's.

Daman's also really got the Chris Ayres Frieza voice down pat by now. Now I won't be worried about the Tournament of Power arc if Ayres can't come back.
Only dubs that matter are DB, Kai, & Super. Nothing else.

Freeza's quote to Beerus is dope.

I forget, did they say that 1v1 matches are in this game? As well as Player vs Computer matches?

There's a lot of out-of-sync in there, pretty aggressive in some parts. I'm glad I have the option for the original voices, I'll be using those exclusively.

There's no 1vs1 in the game bar some exceptions in the story mode I believe. Regarding Player vs CPU it's in although I don't know in how many forms.

Wow, Goku saying someone is "hopelessly stupid" seems like OOC line IMO, please tell me we can change to the original japanese voices in this game. Also the alt. colors are still awful.

He pronounced "Son" wrong, which is weird because he did it right in Kai. But these were cool to see non-the-less

Bandai Namco has already confirmed dual-audio for the beta, and since we've gotten a Japanese track on every game save for a few handhelds since the Greatest Hits version of Budokai 3, I'd be shocked if it was not present on the final game. :)

Are you sure? I though the latest game we had with the japanese tracks was Ultimate Tenkaichi aka Ultimate Blast.
