  1. I mean, C'mon. Of course Crash is one of the 6 upcoming fighters. I'm just wondering who will be the 100th character. Sakurai keeps saying Smash isn't a fighting game, but a celebration of gaming history. Perhaps... Pong?

      Isn’t that already in the game as an assist trophy?

  2. Too bad I don't live in São Paulo, otherwise I would try to snatch one of those tees.
  3. Haven't heard it yet, but reading one of my favorite tunes from the GG era remixed in the style of Sonic Heroes is making my heart race. I gotta listen to it NOW.
  4. Rustland GP officially began and as usual, next GP leaks are in! You guys are gonna love this:
  5. So much for the color theory aswell xD wasn't this Smash character supposed to be orange?

      At least we now know that Sakurai's gesture was a 3, as in "Three Houses".

      Or it was just a pose he was doing with absolutely no significance whatsoever and the three was just a coincidence. Not that people will ever stop these wild guesses though.

      Oh... So that's what the pose meant

  6. lol all for that Gordon Freeman leak 

  7. That's proooooooly unfinished, I guess. We see this scene in the trailer and the lightning looks okay there. But hey, better standing out for being a bit unfinished than standing out for looking like a furry midget.
  8. Holy crap, Bandai Namco really screwed DBZ Kakarot. The game is unpolished as heck sometimes, there's even major oversights, like whole scenes without voice acting and sound effects lol Really slim budget I assume. They probably think the brand alone is enough to sell...

      I really heavily doubt they cheaped out on budget after Xenoverse 2 and FighterZ.

      Yikes, that bad? Damn, was starting to get somewhat interested in it too. Looked to have been doing a lot right.

      i'm gonna wait till friends get the game before anything else

      I'll wait for reviews because I kinda still wanna try it and really don't want this game ending up like World Seeker

      Idk, I've been keeping fairly away from footage since I've got it pre-downloaded for unlock tomorrow, but from the footage I've seen, which is some of Frieza, and some of Android, it looks good enough. @Spin Attaxx has been watching a lot more than me, and he hasn't noticed anything like the issues mentioned here.

      I was getting interested in this game, and my only experience with Dragonball were the first few volumes. But if it's like this, then...

    7. Ryannumber1gamer

      Ryannumber1gamer

      Idk, I'd wait til it releases and we hear more stuff. I've seen a fair amount of footage from Kakarot, and I know others who've watched a hell of a lot more than me, and they haven't mentioned anything like this to me at all.

    8. Polkadi~☆

      Guess we'll have to see the response when it releases. The game looks like great fun, but I already don't have a good amount of faith when it comes to anime games from Bandai Namco.

      In fairness, Dragon Ball and Naruto are about the only two series they treat with respect, probably because they know they'll get their money back from them. Both Xenoverse/Xenoverse 2, and especially FighterZ are incredibly high quality games with fair amounts of backing behind them.

      Naruto Ultimate Ninja Storm, and those games are in the same boat. They have fairly high production budgets, and they get both the JP and English dubs for them because Naruto and DB seem to be confirmed hits due to their long-running nature. CyberConnect, the developers of the highly successful Ninja Storm series are the dev team behind Kakarot.

      I have no idea why One Piece and MHA aren't included in that list because of how big they are, but meh.

      Kakarot's been showing the exact same level of polish, if not even a bit more than FighterZ in some instances with it's cutscenes. I know that a good few of the cutscenes are models talking and enacting the scenes, instead of the super high-quality stuff, but considering the sheer amount of scenes, and content they were doing in this game, it's honestly a bit ridiculous to me to expect the massive anime quality cutscenes for every single cutscene, no matter how small they are. 

      Taking into account what Jango said yesterday were the main problem points: 

      Quote

      When I thought we got over the "character models stand motionless while text boxes do the service" era... There's some great cutscenes that are exact recreations of the manga and anime (some are indeed frighteningly close to the source material), and these are awesome. But they're just a few. Also, combat looks repetitive as heck and the worlds doesn't look that cool to explore. I think people will be getting this game for the fan service, but as a game, it looks weak to me.

      Hell, FighterZ did the same thing, with mostly static models talking in their story cutscenes, with only a few "high quality anime-like" scenes, but they were masked by superb writing, and the graphics of the game itself looking so utterly fantastic. So even the "models/dialogue boxes" stuff doesn't mean shit to me, because from what I've seen, they're still fairly decent, and all voice acted, unlike something like Xenoverse. Fair enough, maybe the gameplay is a bit repetitive, but I don't really think that's something you can judge until you've either got the game in-hand for yourself, or see what the general opinion on the matter is via reviews.

      That's why I really have my doubts on this. It makes little to no sense for Bandai to screw Cyber Connect on budget now after how successful XV and FighterZ both were. Kakarot is practically confirmed to be a success, so making it lazily would be absolutely idiotic of them, and hurt the brand after a long string of high quality tie-in games.

      I've been watching a lot of footage. The games looks like a PS3 game a lot of the time. Lots and lots of those cutscenes with models standing still while text boxes populate the screen. Repetitive combat, spongy enemies. Some cutscenes have sound glitches and very stiff and awkward movement... The game delivers when it really wants it, but overhall, it looks dated IMO. Should've come out last gen. But hey, who am I to tell what you should and should not buy/play, right? :)

    11. Ryannumber1gamer

      I'm not going to go into combat, I'd need to play it myself to make that decision. That said, I'd like to also point out that it's an RPG, meaning spongey enemies are very likely a result of rushing through the game, and not stopping to try level up. Which is probably fair, because whoever got the game early is likely trying to rush through ASAP to get as much content up on the internet as they can, and rake in views before Bandai goes after them. 

      But I don't see where you're going at all with the graphics. I think they look very nice, and leagues above Xenoverse 2, which had fairly decent graphics for a next-gen game.

  9. The Canadian Guy Eh video has a more in depth analysis of a clean footage plus new screenshots. There's a bunch of stuff going on. A new mask, tons of references, crates that release a golden energy ball, new animations. I'm curious for this Chick and Stew tag team stuff too. All the skins look dope as heck (except Cortex's, IMO). Dingodile going full crocodile is awesome. The track design is nuts in a great way. Lots of cool shortcuts. It even recycles (very briefly) parts of Roo's Tubes, which is awesome. The inner part of the ship reminds of the Doominator levels from Crash of the Titans aswell. This whole GP has a Titans vibe actually.
  10. Damn, there's a lot of references in this GP, it's not even funny. Beenox is fucking amazing.
  11. Damn! Megamix actually.... Looks kinda awesome?! The level looks insane, not gonna lie. Here's the trailer: Heads up, at 0:23 you can spot Cortex using a new mask! Looks a lot like Uka-Uka but as in Crash of the Titans (!!)
  12. As I watched "Marriage Story" with my gf last week I kept saying during the movie that the background music sounded a lot like Toy Story... And surely enough, Randy Newman was the composer for it xD I didn't knew untill the credits rolled.

  13. More time to polish stuff. I actually thought May was a bit too early, and since The Last of Us 2 also comes out in May, September seens like a better fit for the Avengers to shine. Marvel's Spider-man also came out on early September
  14. For what I'm seeing of the leaked footage, DBZ Kakarot isn't all that great 😕 Kinda saw it coming, but I'm still disappointed.

  15. What the fuck, miss Potts?!!

  16. Also, Sony totally used Insomniac's Spider-man model with the Raimi Suit on the Morbius trailer. What in the world?! Life action Spider-verse?

  17. Sony is at it again. Spider-man can't catch a break

      Have you watched the Morbius trailer yet? It came out about an hour ago

      Oh, that's what you're talking about. Thought you might be bringing up more rights drama between Sony and Disney.

  18. I remember the PS4 launch line-up was so weak, but damn if this isn't one if not the best end of gen line-up a Sony console ever got. Spider-man, Sekiro, God of War, Horizon, the upcoming FF7 remake, TLOU Part 2 and Ghost of Tsushima. Any one these games alone would make me want to get a PS4.

      Persona 5 is reason enough imo

  19. Oh man, TLJ's final scene (with the boy) was perfect. That should've been the saga's last scene, the last lesson. Anyone can be strong and control the Force, you don't have to be a Skywalker, or Palpatine or whatever your bloodline. I swear to God when...
  20. TBH, I noticed it happened more often in this last one. One thing is Luke using a never seen before force power at the end of the movie in TLJ (which Rian Johnson later showed he took it from an official Star Wars guide book), another is expecting people to know there's a rule that says that could only be 2 Siths, ever... I mean, it was implied when Palp dropped the classic "-Do it" to Anakin slash Dokku's head in Episode III, but still. I understood it was simply because Anakin overpowered him and Palp no longer saw use for the old bastard. Man, there's a lot of stuff in this movie that's way harder to swallow than in TLJ.
  21. Kylo should've been the ultimate villain of TROS, not Palp. It would've been better than giving everybody the mental image of Palpatine having sex halfway through the movie ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ Also yeah, the movie expecting the public to piece together main story bits and lore from games, books and other spin-off media is bad. A lot of this movie makes no sense, stuff happens " just coz' ".
  22. What's going on with the world? 2020 barely started, goddamn it cheetos man.

  23. Backwards compatibility with ALL generations? They can't. Can they? This would be a game changer. As for the logo, I'm just glad they didn't tried anything crazy with the font, I mean, you guys remember the PlayStation 3 logo with the Spider-man font? lol I hope the console looks cool. The new Xbox looks nice.
  24. My feelings exactly. TROS takes a lot of the stuff people complained about in TLJ and doubles down, not to mention all the rushed plot in itself, awkward retconnecting and corny / awfull twists... I don't get the folks who talk shit about TLJ saying TROS is better. It's not even more visually appealing (TLJ has some gorgeous visuals, the final battle in the salt planet speaks for itself). If I had one word to describe this movie is: coward. Can we move on from the Skywalkers once and for all, tho'?
