  1. So this Sonic 2020 thing better end with Mania 2 reveal

    1. PaddyFancy


      Watch it being just like that.

      You'll get poorly made 3D Blast ports and like it!

      Doubt it,  this series of news is a Japan thing, it may be a lead up to the next big game coming in 2021, IMO at least. Mania 2 is an American thing.

    4. TheOcelot


      Inb4 Gens 2 is announced.

  2. 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?

    1. Operationgamer17


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

  3. So much for the color theory aswell xD wasn't this Smash character supposed to be orange?

    1. Blue Blood

      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.

    2. Ellipsis-Ultima


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

  4. lol all for that Gordon Freeman leak 

  5. 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...

    1. Ryannumber1gamer


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

    2. Strickerx5


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

    3. Dejimon11


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

    4. Soniman


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

    5. Ryannumber1gamer


      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.

    6. Polkadi~☆


      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


      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.

    9. Ryannumber1gamer


      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: 


      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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. What the fuck, miss Potts?!!

  9. 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?

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

    1. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

      What exactly are they doing?

    2. Jango


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

    3. Nina Cortex Jovahexeon

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

  11. 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.

    1. Polkadi~☆


      Persona 5 is reason enough imo

  12. What's going on with the world? 2020 barely started, goddamn it cheetos man.

    1. Ferno


      I swear the universe can't let us start a new decade/ century/ millennium in peace without some negative major event going down that sets the tone for the years to come

  14. I sleep = More SA1 remake rumours pops up.

    And I just want a new game or Mania 2.

  15. Clothes are the best gifts when you're an adult, ngl

  16. Just watched the Rise of Skywalker. I'm wondering if people actually got paid to write that crap. It's that bad. It has everything people didn't liked about TLJ, but much more corny and unbelievable. It's worse by standard.

  17. I'm both angry and thankfull that the leaked TRoS plot was legit.

  18. I'm getting a lot of 504 errors here =/ Is the forums really slow or is just my crappy internet?

    1. Ryannumber1gamer


      Forum is acting up

    2. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      The Y2K bug is upon us, the end of society is nigh




      Just twenty years slow

  19. At the end of the day, Rian Johnson's TLJ will end up being the best of the three xD 

    1. Harkofthewaa


      Nah, it'll end up like the prequels: TFA will be seen as the OK one, TLJ will still be just as hated in 10 years as it is now, and TRoS will get a billion memes surrounding it about 15 years after release and be vindicated by history because of it.

  20. Wait, hold the phone. I heard people saying a lot of stuff, but apparently that Rise of Skywalker plot that was lekaed on Reddit three months ago... Was actually legit? (spoilers in the replies!!!)

    1. Jango


      Even the Rey is Palpatine's granddaughter part? Luke and Leia force ghosts aiding her in the final battle and Kylo/Ben Solo redemption (and dead)? Damn. Worst fanfic ever.

    2. Boomer


      It's true. All of it. 

    3. Jack at the Cinema

      Jack at the Cinema

      Yeah it's legit although, SPOILERS!


      It's Rey vs Palpatine fight, the others are voices that tell Rey to raise, every Jedi, Luke and Leia appear at the end. Kylo Ren obviously is redeemed, that was his entire arc. He dies in a fitting way. I actually enjoyed Rey Palpatine a lot, it makes sense considering all of her power, plus it's a mirror to the "I am your father" twist.

      At this point people will not be okay with anything that moves the plot forward.

    4. Jango


      It's an ass pull twist IMO. How did Palpatine have a granddaughter? Oh dear lord, I feared something so fan fictional could actually be true and it is.... But hey... It's Star Wars after all. It has always been a big mexican soap opera. 

      Oh, and apparently they "explain" Palpatine's return in the opening credits, you know, through TEXT?! That's so lame.

    5. Jack at the Cinema

      Jack at the Cinema

      Yeah that was lame I agree. 


      They don't actually explain it via text, but they mention his return immediately which I didn't like. Could have been done better...

      Anyway, I think it's better if you watch the movie to make your own opinion, reading leaks is just a waste imo.

    6. Jango


      Yeah, you're right. But I'll probably dislike it even more xD

      Tell, do Finn and Poe... You know

    7. Boomer


      IIRC it's something like


      Kylo: How are you here? You died on the second Death Star.

      Palps: Yet here I am

      As for Finn and Poe, nope nothing at all between them. Finn wanted to say something to Rey but never does.


  21. I liked TLJ, so I'll probably like TRoS. I didn't  grown attached to Star Wars anyways. But I'll likely only watch in January :V

  22. Red Dead 2 just got a 16gb update! No thanks...

    1. PaddyFancy


      And how much of that will benefit single player?

  23. The Rise of Skywalker first reactions are in... and they are mixed, as expected.

    1. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      If its mixed, sounds more realistic than the overwhelming positive reaction from critics for "Last Jedi".

    2. Jack at the Cinema

      Jack at the Cinema

      I just know that this is about how people personally feel with plot decisions, not the quality of the movie, simply… how the story goes. But still, positive reactions are usually from paid critics, mixed reactions… no idea, it's gonna be another divisive film.

  24. We are living in dark times down here in the south...

  25. Damn man, Crash stinky Bandicoot won a GOTY. Crash. In 2019. What the flute. Imagine saying this a good 5 years ago. So proud of you guys.
