Believe it or not as big of a gamer as I am I have never played a DBZ game. Are any of them worth a shit?


I played one of the Budakai games on PS2. After the novelty of playing a DBZ fighting game for a few hours wore off I was kind of bummed. For me fighting games are very frustrating because the special moves tend to be overly elaborate and the computer "cheats" the whole time.

That's why I wish they had an adventure type game where you could explore and complete tasks to up your power level, but still have fights to advance the story line.

They had one for Game Boy Advance. Find the rom and the emulator and download it.

Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 2 and 3 are excellent. Two has a decent story mode. It's all fighting but there are cut scenes and it's narrated and you can go through all of the sagas.

Sorry I've been absent guys

Some DBZ games are fun, but as Vinny said, they get very tired and repetitive very quickly. I had such high hopes for Ultimate Tenkaichi, but was let down with the quickness. The best game at the moment is Raging Blast 2...still gets old quick.

Earlier this morning, scans from one of Shueisha’s “Jump” magazines (we have yet to confirm the specific magazine, though it is likely Ultra Jump, or possibly Weekly Shonen Jump or V-Jump), promoting the upcoming 2013 Dragon Ball Z movie, were leaked in a 2ch thread. The pages confirm quite a lot about the movie, including Akira Toriyama’s actual involvement with its production. It notes that he not only came up with the movie’s original concept, but also the actual story and character designs. In addition, the page confirms the movie’s title as “Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods”, written as (Kami to Kami) in Japanese.




The curtain rises on the battle of “God(s)”

The character in the tagline is quite intriguing because it is written with the pronunciation “shin“, as opposed to “kami” which is used in the movie’s title. While both can mean “God”, the “shin” pronunciation is not normally used with the kanji by itself, and may be punning on “new” (as in, “The curtain rises on a “new” battle”). Following that is a little tease about the movie itself, and its mysterious title:

What is this title surrounded by mystery, “Battle of Gods (Kami to Kami)”

The film’s title has been announced as “Battle of Gods”!! Up to now, a variety of gods have appeared in Dragon Ball, but could it be that there’s a connection to them…?! Be on the lookout for further information

The ad goes on to announce a special pre-sale “Collaboration Ticket” with the upcoming One Piece movie, “One Piece Film Z”, which is a dual-ticket good for both films. The tickets will go on sale 23 November 2012 (Labor Thanksgiving, a national holiday in Japan) and cost ¥2,600 apiece. These tickets will be limited to 8,989 (“waku-waku“, meaning “excitement”) across Japan. The ticket itself will have a special new illustration by both Eiichiro Oda (author of One Piece) and Akira Toriyama to commemorate the release of the two films. A partial list of participating theaters is given at the bottom, with the fine print noting that tickets for “Battle of Gods” alone will go on sale on Saturday, 15 December 2012.

And so, our first apparently-solid confirmation of the 2013 film’s title and subject-matter has arrived. As the new year approaches, the pace of new information and product promotions is sure to increase, so hold on to your hats…!

Update: It has been confirmed that the above page comes from the December issue of Ultra Jump, which will be officially available on 19 November 2012. It does appear that the upcoming issues of Weekly Shonen Jump and V-Jump will also have similar, if not identical, ad pages for the film.

re: The Official Dragonball Discussion.


So in my rewatch of DBZ currently, I keep feeling like Goku was a pretty shitty father.

I know it was all for the best or whatever, but still I keep feeling like he was a pretty shitty dad for leaving his sons to fend for themselves so much.

Saving the world is more important than spending time with your kids. Sacrificing your own happiness for everyone else's. You can look at it any way you want, but there's a bigger picture. Sometimes his parenting is surely a question.

I get that, but I still can't help but think he's a shitty dad sometimes.

Seriously, we could figure it out, I'll let you do the math Poxxxxxxx, but he spent how many years around gohan, and all of one day with goten? Sure chichi might have been an annoying character, but think about her having to raise two boys mostly by herself. She deserves credit for that.

Next time you think about Goku being a shitty dad, just think about his dad.

Bardock...now that was a shitty dad

Been awhile since I've seen that one. I think I have it and I may watch it when i'm done with DBZ, but still didn't they send Goku off to earth when he was an infant? He really had no choice being a saiyan.

Trying to go through the movies since they're all on youtube and watched The World's Strongest today. It makes me hate Gohan even more. Dude was such a whiney bitch when he was a kid.
