  1. Okay, I lied, there was one redeeming aspect to the Minus adaptation in Broli. THIS theme.

     

  2. I know it sounds nothing like it, but I get Mortal Kombat vibes from this theme for some reason.

     

  3. Somehow I forgot that Kai starts with the Bardock Special. That's a big oof, given Dragon Ball Super: Broli adapts Dragon Ball Minus, and Dragon Ball Super follows Kai.

    I suppose it's possible some of Freeza's goons knocked him back down to the planet in some extended cut. I hope that's the case, and it's released with the home edition, because otherwise there's no way Freeza would recollect Bardock like the manga shows, lol.

    Dragon Ball (Warning: Untagged Spoilers)

    My kinda sorta review of Dragon Ball Super: Broli I enjoyed it. It was better than the latter Broli films, but I do think Broli's debut film is still his best. I think Dragon Ball Minus's incorporation is a real slight against it. The film didn't do enough to make it more palatable. It's the same ol' bare minimum exposition with no attempt to flesh out the characters involved. It also undoes Bardock's rebellion, which I don't find as annoying as some, I'm sure. For me, Dragon Ball Minus's biggest problem is what it does to the themes found in the Saiyan arc. Dragon Ball Minus contradicting the manga certainly doesn't help it though. There's no way Freeza even saw Bardock to even recollect him when Goku shows up to face him. Beyond the opening exposition, which lasts for quite a while, the present day consists mostly of fighting, and it is god damn gorgeous. Seriously, this is the best looking fight sequence in the entire franchise, and that's what really sells this film. The story content is underwhelming to be sure, but this is one of those movies you're gonna wanna have on in the background while you're doing other shit because it is PRETTY. As far as Broli's new characterization is concerned, I'm conflicted on it. Broli is more of a character now, but it's at the cost of Broli's one liner spouting sadism, which was the selling point of his original "character". He was the Legendary Super Saiyan, and he's all that he really needed to be. This version of him is more sympathetic, but I don't know if that adds much in the long run. Yeah, he can be incorporated into the main cast now, but what the heck are they supposed to do with him? Call him up when Goku can't get the job done? That's just the Zeno button all over again? Is he gonna train with Whis? Well, he's already stronger than Goku, so he'll probably be upstaging everyone at that point, and we can't have that. I really think this Broli isn't going to make many appearances beyond this film. Oh, I also like that Vegeta doesn't job in this film. That's how you subvert expectations.
  6. Just got back from Dragon Ball Super: Broli. Still an 8/10 for me. The story content is still meh, thanks to Minus, but god damn is it a spectacle.

  12. Havin' chili dogs with homemade chili and watching the Sonic OVA.

  13. So, I just need a Koffing and all the trade evolutions to complete my Let's Go Pikachu pokedex. Anyone wanna help out with that?

      Here's the theme song for tonight's stream.

  15. Just finished going through all the modern stages in Generations and the Sonic and Shadow stages in Adventure 2. I had a great time with both, but I definitely feel Generations demands less of you, even when you do the stages nigh perfectly. 

  16. Ah, a new record. Finished Sonic 1 with 4 Chaos Emeralds. 

    1. TheOcelot

      TheOcelot

      Nice.

      Which two emeralds you miss?

    2. ThePrinceOfSaiyans

      ThePrinceOfSaiyans

      The red and blue ones.

    3. TheOcelot

      TheOcelot

      Is that the first & four special stages?

  17. Herms: "Freeza kinda takes on the role of Eggman from Sonic in this film, wherein he gets this new ally, and he ultimately betrays him in the end."

    OMFG, that's so true.

     

  18. Everyone is such a cunt in episode 68, lol.

  19. Super episode 67 sucks so fucking hard.

  20. To an extent. I'd say it affects the story more so than anything else. While Sonic's friends may have been a detriment to gameplay in the past, their inclusion into the story was generally fine. Knuckles's treasure hunting stages may not have been to the liking of certain players, but his character is likable and the history of his people is interesting. By shoving Knuckles into the background, we miss out on what he can add to the story. The same goes for all the other characters that aren't Sonic. There are ways to include the characters without them being a detriment to gameplay. The classics and Mania figured it out, so I'm not sure why Sonic Team can't just do that in 3D, and use the characters to tell an engaging story to boot.
  21. So, like, you defuse after an hour if you aren't a Kaioshin, but Zamasu never actually became a Kaioshin, He just put the Potara earring on and he was suddenly a Kaioshin for some reason. If that's how it works, Goku and Vegeta should become Kaioshin by putting on Shin's earrings. Does killing a Kaioshin make you a Kaioshin or something, lol?

    And oh boy, I'm on episode 67 now. Fuck.

    1. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      I think it was because Zamasu was the next in line. Though thats a guess.

  22. You know what I want out of this Dragon Ball games stream thing? Actual costumes for characters in FighterZ. The Yardrat outfit for Goku would be cool. A Majin Vegeta skin for Super Vegeta would be cool. A Saiyan outfit for Kuririn would be cool. No. 18's casual outfit would be cool. Tenshinhan's classic Gi would be cool. Etc.

  23. So when do you think we're gonna get another fully 3D Sonic game?

      I could see us not getting one for a really long time if at all with the way things are going

    3. SupahBerry

      SupahBerry

      But we never got a fully 3D "Sonic" game

      (Walks away)

    4. Yeow

      Yeow

      when we get sonic adventure 3
