I like the core gameplay quite a bit, I've only done the tutorial missions so far, so I can't comment on the mission design yet (which seems to be the biggest area people have issue with), and the story seems fine, certainly no more or less interesting the Destiny 2's.

I can see why people would be dissapointed by the story if they're approaching this as a Bioware game, but approaching it as a Destiny like, I'm not really to bothered.

Disclaimer: I got my pre-order free with my new GPU, so I haven't spent a penny to get this game.

Also, it looks damn good on the PC containing the aforementioned GPU.

Have you watched the original Dragonball?

For me VI is the best overall sound track is the best, but “Battle on the Big Bridge” (or Gilgamesh’s the,e if you prefer) from V is the best track in the series.

Side note, if you ever get a chance to go to a Distant Worlds concert, go for it, a fantastic show and a great atmosphere (aside from the cringeworthy amount of cheers anytime a VII song is played).

@mach_go_go_go: Collect four thingys and destroy bad guy?

Earthbound is great but I definitely wouldn’t call it’s story anything more than “present”.

Conversely, I would say Mother 3 is my pick for this, it may have been a time and place thing of when I played it as well as the fact that I played it on a JP cart using a Gamefaqs translation making me pay more attention to the script than I might normally, but it was one of the first games that really made me feel something.

@brunothethird: I'm from Bristol, but I doubt there's any chance of getting a modern day game set here.

Dragonball Z: Tree of Might

Been watching through the DBZ movies when there's a week without an all systems Goku.

It was entertaining enough, the usual problem with these movies in that being non-canon there's no sense of permanence to anything.

Was nice to see some Yamcha/Tien screen time as I'd forgotten how little they get in Kai.

Actual story and villains weren't that interesting and the climactic fight was pretty much the same as the last movie and the Vegeta fight (Kaio Ken isn't enough so Spirit Bomb to finish it).

Overall 3/5 Entertaining enough as an extended episode of the show, not especially memorable.

Also I'd forgotten how bad some of the old Funimation voice acting was compared to the Kai dub, Bulma especially.

@brunothethird: Interesting, I had no idea that resistance was even supposed to be in a real location (not that I've played any of them but I assumed they were in space for some reason).

I think the not real places thing is the key point, seeing as I don't think there's any big open world games set in modern London I think we have a ways to go before any realistic representations of any other cities.

It's a shame really considering Rockstar North is in Edinburgh that they haven't done a game set somewhere on the landmass that they are based on, seeing as from what I've heard GTAV is a one of the most accurate video game re creations of a real city.

Are there any games set in England that aren't set in London?

Steam.

Going to toss this out there, since Pinball Arcade has the licensing stuff going on:

You can always put together a PC running legacy software if for reason Pinball Arcade no longer works under a certain flavor of Windows. Then, get weird and build a fake pinball table out of a 75" display.

If Apple pushes out an iOS update that bricks Pinball Arcade, outside of waiting for dev support, you have nothing. I have a pretty large library of stuff I bought on iPad that just flat out won't run anymore.

So I ended up going for steam partially for this reason (I too have iOS games I spent money to buy that no longer run) but also because it turns out that the season packs are about £5 cheaper on PC than iOS.

Better controls also helped the decision.

Only bought season one so far, but I'm having a great time and plan to buy more before the time is up!

What really strikes me is how different the tables feel, I play real pinball so infrequently and I don't think I've ever played more than 2 tables back to back so I though they all felt fairly much the same, but theres a great variety of speeds and styles!

@sin4profit: Yeah I've got a 8bitdo controller that in theory works with iOS, but I haven't tried it yet, I'll let you know when I do.

Edit: Apparently 8bitdo controllers no longer work with iOS, that's annoying.
