goddammit, it's pronounced fa-he-ta. Get some culture.

This has to stop.

Please.

How great would it be to hear a Vinny interpretation of every nerdy piece of media out there. His bastardization of the series would be worth money to listen to.

Posted by ZagZagovich

Loved Jeffs intro explanation and really surprised Vinny remebers so much of Dragon Ball stuff. Basically this game plays like the Gundam VS series of games but slightly modified to allow flying. The whole invisibility after knockdown comes from Gundam games which were slower pace and way more managable. I was kind of looking forward to this game hearing that it took this turn but everything about it is pretty weak. Story mode is pretty bare bones, fighting is really hard to keep track of but at the same time so brain dead simple that it seems mot worth it to pay attention, special moves all look and feel unsatisfying and the card system is just a burden. The main focus seems to be on multiplayer and team cooperation but with fighting being so lame I don't see people doing that either. So stay away even if you are a fan.

P.S.

The purple space egypt cat is from a new movie that came out last year. You should check it out, Vinny.

I would watch a feature of Vinny watching all the DBZ episodes and then trying to explain it to Jeff afterwards.

Gotrunks, go!

@vinny you should really watch the latest DBZ movie (with the cat guy). It is sooo incredibly goofy and self-aware

Vinny's hazy DBZ memories and Jeff's utter hatred for the franchise always make these quick looks the best.

Pretty much.

What the fuck

Fuck dude this game looks so awful. They just need to remake Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi. :(

Does this Quick Look span over six episodes?

HA!

Edited by CaLe

I don't think I've ever watched an episode of DBZ, but I have seen anime where the characters basically go Super Saiyan. For example, when Homer makes himself fat so he can be declared disabled and thus be allowed to work from home.

Got me crying from laughter at the end of it.

You know that new dbz movie was actually decent. But yeah this game, fuck this game. When you do the Frieza fight and it isn't just Goku vs Frieza you dun fucked up, you fucked up real bad.

Edited by Undeadpool

You had me at Vinny and Jeff!...which I guess was at the end...still, you've got me, so...that's something...

Man, The Simpsons was the best fucking anime.

Damn, I spit out my cereal when Jeff said "Giant Ball!"

Posted by ICantBeStopped

I have a passing understanding of DBZ. I saw Broli, I saw Cell, I saw Freeza... but who the hell is that purple dog thing?

Posted by i_am_not_david

Around 20min in Jeff confuses Roshi for Roshan

Brad is winning guys. We can't stop the DOTA

Posted by jayjonesjunior

So...Goku is NOT Kal El?

Posted by T_wester

@subwayd: I'm disappointed in Jeff's knowledge of spaceegyptian gods but I'm pretty sure Bast was a goddess so the identity of the cat man are unclear.

Posted by bybeach

Jimmie Olson the earth dad of superman, why did my bull shit meter jump? Because I only watch this QL for the BS. Waiting for Vinny to say Vagina instead of Vagena (or vageta, idk...)

Anyway, sounds epic!

Posted by Lausebub

I feel like they reached their peak with the Budokai games. This doesn't look appealing at all and I love Dragon Ball. Imagine how Jeff felt during this whole quick look...

CYA-RA! HECCYARA!!

DBZ to me is the anime that makes anime look bad to people who don't watch anime.

When folks who aren't into anime think of anime, I think they assume every anime out there is like DBZ, when this is absolutely not the case whatsoever.

If you haven't found an anime to your specific tastes, you just aren't looking hard enough. ^.^

If people are indeed assuming that every anime is like DBZ then they have a much higher opinion of contemporary anime than they ought to have. A 2014 DBZ remake would be set in middle/high school with goku and friends figuring out their sexuality during the day time and fighting aliens during night time. Plus a panty shot every 2 minutes. Don't forget the panty shots.

Best Quick Look in a good while, laughed a bunch. :D

Man, this game looks awful. Thanks for suffering through it for an hour, guys.

Posted by JimiPeppr

Keeping my nostalgia alive by never playing any DBZ games ever.

Posted by cabrit_sans_cor

DBZ was such an important part of my childhood, but I feel like they're just beating a dead horse at this point. Like, besides Budokai, when has there been a good DBZ game?

Man, Super Saiyan God Goku is some fanfic-tier shit.

Posted by mageemagoo

@xel: They did. There are at least two that I know of on GBA and the second one was actually really fuckin fun (and hard)

Only if Ryu is a wizard too

Pretty sure the space egyptian cat man is from a recent movie. That's why no one recognizes it.

Fun fact: The developers of the DBZ Budokai games went on to co-develop Street Fighter 4 and its numerous iterations.

Dragon ball is like a drug that you can't completely kick. I watched that opening and I was like yeah I want more dragon ball. I have no idea who the guy at the end is. I don't think I've seen anything after boo, it goes frieza-cell-boo right? or boo than cell. Whatever, either way after five minutes of watching the actual game play, forget it. I have no idea what Vinny was actually doing the whole thing looked like some fast paced craziness. Maybe I look into seeing the newer/older shows I never saw, but that feeling will probably pass in about an hour.

Edited by BBQBram

Another hour of my life well spent!

Vinny could make so much money doing audio cliff notes for the entire Dragon Ball fiction.

Goku's real name is Kaka karrot Kake.

Wow, really? It'd be nice if they could use that experience to make a better Budokai game sometime.

And Vinny, if you want to play a good DBZ game, you play either Budokai 3 or Tenkaichi 3. Every DBZ iteration since then has gotten progressively worse. Also check out DBZ: Battle of Gods, it was a pretty cool DBZ movie.

A 50 minute quick look about a game no one cares about. Why?

Posted by RetroVirus

If we want to talk about what would be a good anime game adaptation, imagine Kill la Kill in the vein of Metal Gear Rising.

Posted by Skooky

I liked the demo, but not enough to buy the game.

I wish this was a thing.

Posted by jagehtso

That made me remember this thing I found when sifting through the old Gamespot stuff a while ago. Dunno where it is now or if it even still exists on the new site.

Posted by trelution

I loved Vinny's abridged version of DBZ lore, and man I think that Battle mode (actually the whole game) should have been filed under Unfinished.
