Bardock being a rushdown character that can close gaps makes him my new main without a doubt.

Now I can have Bardock (Point) Ginyu (Battery) and Freeza (Anchor) as my Freeza Force team which is nice.

...Now I just gotta figure out which colors look best on the team which is the hardest part for me.

Broly looks great, but Bardock is okay at best.
At least they did the right thing of using his base form as main and only use his SSJ for Lv3. That's how I would do his character too.

I'm still disappointed his Lv3 doesn't include this though:

A world without Dragon Ball is just meh.

I miss this too, seems like they did not included his grappling-stuff in this game.
This is also missing:

Although, it's not that much of a big deal to me, everything else is fine.

Bardock might just earn himself a role in my team.
Well, I'm glad you are at least are going to give him a chance.
This was also my opinion, altough at the time when the game only had about 10-15 characters revealed and two of them were SSJ and SSB Gokus. I still think that there are more interesting characters to add this game with more unique gameplay potential then Bardock, but since Bardock is one of the most popular characters, I understand why they went with him.

Yeah, I figured they'd use that and toss the opponent into the air for the finishing beam at the end instead of a similar Lvl 3 SSJ Goku has.

I don't understand specs too much, and I can't think of anywhere else to ask this, but I recently bought a new Surface Pro with 8 GB RAM and i5 processor. Can FighterZ play on this? Even on the lightest settings? I checked Steam and some specs match up, but not too sure about the graphics. I really want to play this game, but I don't want to waste $60 if it won't work.
An interviewer asks, "The soundtrack in Sonic 3 has become legendary. Is it true that you worked with Michael Jackson on it?" Takashi Iizuka kills all of our hopes and dreams by replying, "You know, those are just rumors, and SEGA does not want to say anything about them. So they will forever be just rumors..." WHY!?

The game is incredibly well optimized. Ultimately, you can just buy it on Steam and refund it if your computer can't run it well enough to your liking.
If you're not here soon... GET ON!

If you search google there's websites that let you input your specs and tell how well it runs the game. You probably don't need to worry the game isn't heavy at all, like most fighting games. Unless you have a complete potato it will run.

You made the same faux pas most spec appraisal questions make and did not give us either GPU- the the thing that will actually answer the question- or your specific model so we could look it up for you. No one can help without one of those. That the first Microsoft result I see when searching for Surface Pros on the face of it do not even mention a GPU is not a good sign. :think:

Saw all of the new finishes except the one where Freeza defeats Bardock. Bardock defeating Freeza is by far the coolest unfortunately the reference ins't of my favorite material, oh well it exists and I'll have to deal with it.

I'm glad they aren't holding back on this valuable content even in the DLC, I just want them to make it more accessible I still haven't had a single one in hundreds of matches.

If I buy the Anime Music Pack from Steam/PS4 can I just listen to the songs without the game?

No. And bear in mind. These are TV-sized openings and endings meaning they'll last around a minute, followed by a short pause and loop again.

A few things to note, and some reminders:

- Simply pushing the "strong attack" button to trigger the Dramatic Finish won't work with Freezer since it doesn't blast away the opponent, unlike many other characters. So you can warp-strike instead, it works.

- We have our first "imaginary finish", showing a victory that never happened. Since it is now clear that they are okay with imagining new outcomes, this could pave the way for many more Dramatic Finishes than we could have anticipated.

- Don't forget that the music of the cutscene will be the one of the fight, which you can choose. This is how you can find much more appropriate BGM to go with the cutscenes. So browse the stage themes and the character themes to have more than 30 different pieces of music that could be much better than the one of the current stage, such as the Kikuchi-esque "Cavern" track for Freezer killing Krilin.

- Don't forget that the cutscene will mirror itself to match the characters' positions. So if you want to be as faithful as possible to the original, mind the characters' positions: Goku and Trunks should finish Freezer off from the right, for example.

- Want a breath of fresh air in the look of a scene? Don't forget that you have a lot of colours to chose from, all of which will apply to the cutscenes and possibly give you a feeling of "remix" for classic scenes, with new modernized looks suiting your own preferences.

- You can enjoy those Dramatic Finishes with the classic music if you have the music pack (Bardack's Dramatic Finish with Solid State Scouter for example), but don't forget that using those will lock streaming. If you want to record the cutscenes with what you think are the best outfits and the best music, you'll have to do without the anime music pack and choose tracks exclusive to the game.

There's no Broly beating people in Dramatic Finishes? Just losing?

After the last episode of Super, I'm definitely using a Base Goku / Frieza / #17 team if the leaked DLC roster is true.
