ffs get over this yamcha thing. The character interactions in this game, especially in the story mode, are so goddamn good. Everybody feels organic, and you can tell that System Arcs are real fans of the show. I'm not surprised, considering that their "What if" scenarios in Super Sonic Warriors were also really, really good. The characters are written beautifully for what could have been another ho-hum forgettable story mode and all I've seen you post about is bitching about how "yamcha doesn't deserve this, yamcha should retort like this, why are they shitting on yamcha" etc. Get over it. I wish the writers for Super were this good.

You also need to get over yourself. I've played Tekken since it's first incarnation and still hold Tekken 3 as one of my favorite fighting games of all time. To base your entire opinion on the gameplay because you "watched a video reviews" and then also tell me the Street Fighter series is boring, repetitive, and nowhere near as deep as the Tekken series is just one of the most ludicrous things I've heard. You clearly don't know what the hell you're talking about (probably never played a Guilty Gear series game either). I wouldn't even compare this game to Marvel vs Capcom 3, but moreso it's predecessor. FighterZ is a technical, deep fighter with an emphasis on high octane battles and is the first fighter in the franchise to do it with such precision and care. If I wanted to play Tekken, I wouldn't play Street Fighter. If I wanted to play Street Fighter, I wouldn't play Tekken. Same goes for King of Fighters, for Killer Instinct, for Mortal Kombat, etc. But to imply that one is incredibly more complex than the other to the point of elitism that you displayed is a joke. All games have their balance issues and all games will have top tier characters that come up again and again in tournaments like EVO.

And to now backtrack now that you're going to get the game based on whether the story mode is "enough" for you is pathetic. This is literally the first game in the entire franchise to actually be taken seriously by the entire fighting game community, a game that we thought would NEVER happen because this fanbase is so used to getting shit like Xenoverse and Tenkaichis and other 300 "character" roster full of clone games, a game that ended up being developed by one the TOP fighting game developers working today, yet it doesn't pass your pretentious "test". Please. Either contribute to the thread or kindly stfu. :wave:

That's also a stupid thing to say. Yes, I based my opinion on the gameplay based on what I had seen from reviews about the game. That is the entire purpose of why reviews are made in the first place, to give you an impression of the game.

I also never said that Street Fighter wasn't deep.
FighterZ is a technical, deep fighter with an emphasis on high octane battles and is the first fighter in the franchise to do it with such precision and care.
Which is entirely irrelevant because again my comment was based purely on what was shown in the videos. It is not my opinion that these videos kept showing the same repetitive combos, they were showing the same repetitive combos.
And to now backtrack now that you're going to get the game based on whether the story mode is "enough" for you is pathetic.
Wrong again. I never said I wasn't going to get the game. I was always going to get the game from when it was announced regardless. Me seeing repetition in the video reviews was just that but it had no impact in any way at all on whether I was still going to get the game.

Pay more attention to what is actually said next time.

I have watched the story mode and..

Goku admits and does not care that Piccolo takes care of his granddaughter better.

Goku is extraordinarily blunt with everyone.

Goku is said to be forgetful and is extremely careless with his actions, making deals with people who are evil.

Goku takes none of this seriously and is exciting for fighting, doesn't really care that his arch enemies are back and he just wants a sceond go at them.

Goku's plans are said to be unreliable and he himself is an unreliable person.

Now I personal love all of this because its funny, but I loved it in super too when it was funny there too.


It has already done a lot of these things and it has divided the fandom on whether Goku has regressed or is his TFs version actually smarter. I find it funny how people love the fact that the game is so self aware of how the fanodm feels about these characters but when super does it, people flip tables.





Also like what you like but don't talk to people like that. No one will take you seriously if you do.

These character themes are phenomenal. Having a character theme for each characters is something a Dragon Ball game has never done before despite being common in many other fighting games. It feels so good to have such a great soundtrack, I doubt there are any plans for an official release so I hope a gamerip pops up online.

Yea it's just the final theme... Goku/Goku blue, Vegeta/Blue, Gohan's and the 2 Buu's also have just one theme.

As noted, roasts or banter are not the issue.

Execution is and to me it seems clear the dub brings a different tone to it and one I don`t care much about.

I've seen some Japanese version of these clips pop up and they seem to be pretty identical where wording is concerned, but I guess the English version seems a tad bit more sardonic.

But I genuinely mean that people are exaggerating with the word. I mean, there is a clip about Goku talking to Tien about what a great babysitter Piccolo is and apparently that counts as ROASTING too.

I wouldn't say that Yamcha having no self-esteem in this game is giving him a sense of humor. There's even a scene where he's surprised there's a clone of him and that he's strong enough to be useful to the enemy. C'mon, I don't even like the guy, but jeez.

Never done before? All of Super Butouden games, Ultimate Battle 22/Shin Butouden and Final Bout did have character themes.
Supersonic Warriors had character themes. And that was a GBA game!

Yeah I gotta agree with some people concerning he interaction dialogue, it feels too memey and self aware for it's own good.
When someone tells you, "Don't present your opinion as fact," what they're actually saying is, "Don't present your opinion with any conviction. Because I don't like your opinion, and I want to be able to dismiss it as easily as possible." Don't fall for it.

Yeah that Yamcha burn, coming from Piccolo who doesn't understand romantic relationships was kinda painful. Did Piccolo or anyone else for that matter ever say something like that in the manga/anime? Or are the writers scripting off of the tone of TFS and 4chan memes?

As a side not 21s buu form looks unbelievably amazing. Makes me wish other universes had Buu counterparts to fight.
