DBZ! Looking forward to this!

Posted by Nephrahim

Man, it's been so long since the vanilla budokai games I'm watching this to remember what it looks like...

Posted by jaegr

Youtube video blocked by ABGroup?

Posted by cheebaking

Yeah, blocked youtube.

Posted by xxizzypop

I haven't started watching yet, but if this has another fight of Raditz and Nappa I think I'm going to cry.

Wow, Budokai 3 looks like it holds up a million times better than the first game. Everything looks super flat and boring in the first one.

I am the only one who exclaims "Vinny!" every time he sees his name in the description of the video? Also I want to throw my hands up in the air while I'm saying it but never do...

Going to be great once you can fight back against 'rightsholders' who lie in their takedown notices. Right? That'll happen, right? Anyone? <crickets>

These DBZ games were some of my favorites to play growing up.

Budokai 3 is the greatest DBZ game and if you think otherwise you are a bad person or a child.

Posted by RE_Player1

Also I already know this will be one of those quick looks I'll be freaking out about while watching because they are playing it wrong.

Posted by paulunga

The thing is, Budokai 2 is better than 1 but completely pointless when you have 3.

Oh my gawd, Dragonball Z is the WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORST!

Posted by Reale

cant watch this on youtube as it breaks copyright?!?!?!?! lol

Posted by Petiew

Hearing this all in English is trippy, the UK version was Japanese only with hillarious subtitles.
Goku calling the man who killed his friends a big meanie, and Vegeta calling Cell an Aunt Sally after he almost kills Trunks was great.
Shame about the music though.

Blocked on youtube, at least as a member I can download this but are ABGroup going to come round and stop me watching it at home?

Edited by GaspoweR

Did somebody say OVER 9000???

Also: Youtube has some overly protective copyright bots wherein even using royalty-free music at times can be considered a copyright infringement just because some news network decided to copyright a video they posted on Youtube wherein they used the same song. It's just fucking ridiculous. Will Smith (not the actor) has even complained about this A LOT.

I don't know if my brain can handle an hour of DBZ. But I am about to find out.

Posted by Nephrahim

Watching this again, I have to say I don't agree with Ryan. I think the series was at it's best around Boudokai tenkashi 2 or 3. They feel MUCH more like Dragon ball z fights then this, which is still trying too hard to be a tradtional fighter with combos.

dragon dragon fuck that dragon dragon ball z!

Posted by mrfluke

might actually get this, budokai 3 was great, hopefully its at a discount on black friday

Posted by charlie_victor_bravo

I am pretty and thank you!

Posted by deano546

Budokai 3 is still great, Budokai 1... wasn't great in the first place.

Posted by Terjay

Super Sayin'

Posted by sub_o

I am amazed that Ryan knows more about Dragon Ball's lore than Vinny. Always thought that Vinny is the super (crazy) fan.

Posted by phrosnite

Budokai 3 is actually pretty good. I'll play it someday :)

Posted by masterpaperlink

somehow these models look a thousand times better than the last few games

Posted by Coldman

In a perfect world, the DBZ Abridged guys do the voices for shit like this.

God I hate Dragon Ball Z

Posted by bloodsoul5

raging blast 1 and 2 were actually pretty good games.. but yea budokai 3 is the tits.

Posted by Shinmaru007

I believe Kyle Hebert is the announcer for Dragon Ball Z, and he is still quite alive and well!

Posted by Pazy

This video is blocked on youtube :| Its rather annoying since I was going to watch it while I eat dinner. Ill download it and watch it later since im a member but this is just silly.

Posted by hardindr

Never forget...

Posted by Ravelle

Ryan/Vinny and Dragonball Z, a perfect Tuesday! Also major flashback from that intro song. ;D

Posted by crusader8463

I had to pause this video to go afk for a few, and it ended on the below screen shot. I couldn't help but think of the following caption:

Hey Vegeta! I tried manscaping for the first time. What do you think?
Posted by Colourful_Hippie

I missed out on 3 because I never had a PS2 so I only played 1 and 2. Will buy.

Looks like you're in the wrong place.

Posted by Hairy_Fish

I'm not allowed watch this on Youtube. I guess here will do...

Edited by Pop

I still want a good game of original Dragon Ball, not Dragon ball Z just Dragon ball where goku is a little kid, no not Dragon Ball GT just Dragon Ball. I like the japanese intro more than the american one.

Also look at that shit! I get so many goosebumps!

Posted by Innovacious

To all the people calling the Youtube situation a false takedown. "AB Groupe" as they are known by their french name do own some rights to dragonball in the UK. They dubbed/rewrote some of the movies... REALLY badly. Pretty sure they also have some distribution rights.

But still, they shouldn't really be targeting everything like this. This isn't the first time they've done this, they seem a bit overly aggressive in "protecting" their right.

At least there's always the GB hosted version.

Posted by Ares42

Gotta say, of all the DBZ QLs there's been, this is the first one that made me go "maybe I should check out what this whole DBZ thing is about".

Posted by Darro

Budokai 3 is still the best Dragonball Z game and the fact it is 8 years old and still looks fun to play speaks volumes. I wouldn't say all the games after it were hot garbage as Ryan said (I thought Burst Limit was pretty good) but they are not as good as Budokai 3!

Posted by Beld

I don't care what anyone says. I liked Budokai 2. I really liked the crazy board game story mode. And I think it's bullshit that it isn't in this collection. BULLSHIT, I SAY!

Also, there's going to be a new DBZ movie in 2013.

Posted by BBAlpert

I love how Vinny's Goku and his Columbo aren't that different.

Posted by PimblyCharles

I think Dragonball Z is okay, but I really wish there were more good One Piece games

Posted by HulkHanson

So yeah, what about Budokai Tenkaichi 3? What's the difference? Admittedly, I don't know much about the Dragonball Z universe but, at the time, I remember it being labelled as the true DBZ game and having a lot of fun with it. Damn, there are a lot of these games.
