So, I won

Posted by HumanityPlague (251 posts) -

So, I won a game in Vito's (user: Vito_Raliffe) game raffle on GB, in the form of DBZ: Burst Limit.  I'm actually kind of happy to have won it, despite DBZ being a dumb franchise.
 
There's a place for super flashy, shallow fighters out there.  DBZ isn't exactly complicated (as a narrative, or characters, etc.), but it's still weirdly enjoyable.  Plus, while reviews for Burst Limit have been average (notably a 3/5 from Vinny), it's at least a 2D fighter, compared to Budokai 3 in some respects.  
 
It at least doesn't look like the epic befuddling disasters known as Dragon Ball Z: Raging 1 or 2, so that's good.
 
So, thanks again to Vito_Raliffe for having the raffle, and picking me.  
 
And yo, any game where you can get your power level over 9000 is ok in my book.

Congratz on winning. I've always had a spot in my heart for the DBZ games, but I never really went out of my way to buy them. Although I do remember buying Supersonic Warriors on the GBA and playing that non-stop. All of the PS2 games and whatnot, I always just rented and had a good time with for a few days. So anyway, yeah; they're fun. :)

@JJWeatherman: Yeah, I got...DBZ Budokai 3 for the PS2, I think.  The 2D fighters generally aren't terrible, just a bit bland.  It's the 3D ones you have to run away from, screaming in terror.

As someone who was after that game, congratulations!  The only problem is that I now have to think of a new target in Vito's contests.

@Make_Me_Mad: Haha, yeah.  I only wanted DBZ, cause I either have everything else he's offering (all the PC games), or don't own a PS3 (for those games).  So, good luck.

good thing is wasnt this:
  

  I really like the Dragon Ball Budokai games but Im not great at fighting games so I usually stop playing after I get my ass handed to me by the last boss

Headsplode. How did I never notice this? 
 
Also, congrats!

@the_OFFICIAL_jAPanese_teaBAG: That is the best Quick Look ever.  Ryan's UTTER disgust is what makes it golden.  Especially when Vinny keeps continuing to play the game, just to annoy him.

DBZ Burst Limit is a great game, the fact that it's not super complex makes it extremely easy for new players to jump into and challenge you surprisingly fast, whereas with any other more complicated title (MK, SSFIV, etc.) there are a lot more basic techniques to be learnt before you can really start being competitive, even with a friend.

Grats man!  That game has been on the contest list for a while o_o.
 
I used to be a DBZ fan as a kid back in the day.  Only DBZ game I played was the one on the super famicom Dragon Ball Z Super Butoden 3 (I filed down the edges to make it playable on SNES)

I really liked burst limit, even if there was a sore lack of content compared to the budokai games.

Hey, hey I liked Raging Blast.

You should give the Naruto games a blast, they follow closely in the DBZ over-the-top trappings, and are actually great fun. 
 
On that note, Asura's Wrath looks pretty great.

@GetEveryone: Actually, I don't mind the Naruto games either.  Like 7 years ago, I was at a friend's house, when he had a region free PS2, with Naruto Ultimate Ninja on it.  I loved it, and when it eventually came to America, I grabbed it.  I didn't care about the license at all, I just thought it was a very fun fighting game.  My friend had the game for a while, but when I played it, I was beating him within a half hour.  That was a good game.
 
Oh, also, Tara Platt is very cool.  'Nuff said.
