  1. 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.

  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

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

  13. 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. 

  14. 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?

      I don't remember.

  15. 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.

     

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

    1. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      Poor King Kai.

  17. Super episode 67 sucks so fucking hard.

  18. 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.
  19. 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.

  20. 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.

  21. This vid is still great.

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

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

  23. Speaking of Sonic 3, there's been plenty of time to let it stew, Sonic 3 or Sonic Mania?

    1. ThePrinceOfSaiyans

      ThePrinceOfSaiyans

      I'm personally torn. Sonic 3 is an original experience, but Sonic Mania cuts away a lot of the fat seen in the classics.

      Sonic 3 still has 25 years of fandom love behind it, so it'll be pretty hard for anything to ever top it. It's the same for any game that becomes the quintessential experience of a series.

      Mania, if it had more original levels. Otherwise, Sonic 3&K/3 Complete.

    7. Nast

      for those saying sonic 3 (most of you lol), i'm curious as to why?

    8. Maxtiis

      Maxtiis

      More originality, Knuckles' levels have more significant usage of his abilities in 3 beyond just Mirage Saloon Act K, Flying Battery was better designed in 3, a more fulfilling climax/ending, to name a few.

      Of course Mania comes very close, and that's a hell of an achievement for a fan developed game seeking to live up to the reputation of a predecessor with two decades of hype fueling the desire for a faithful follow-up.

      I honestly can’t answer that as I find both games fantastic and blew me away at the time of their respective reveals and releases. Mind you this is coming from a predominantly  Modern Sonic fan...

      Let me get back to you as I seriously need to think about this. 

    10. Nast

      Nast

      @Maxtiis those are very good points, though i'm not sure about flying battery. i think the original has more mechanics and setpieces that kinda waste your time, while mania's version is faster paced and more interesting to me as a result

    11. Maxtiis

      Maxtiis

      Mania's takes me about 6-7 minutes to beat just act 2, whereas I can finish 3's in at least 4, but that's just me. The wind just gets on my nerves a bit and the boss's hitbox is just odd.

      Unleash-Hic. 'Scuse me.

      honestly i don't think i could choose. both are great, but in slightly different ways.

      though if the question was "which would i want to play right now", it'd be mania, just because of how much more time i've already put into 3&K. even the best games can't be played endlessly.

      Sonic 3.

      Outside of its originality, it's just the more complete game. For the time, it was actually pushing the industry forward in every aspect and was simply a well made, fun game at its heart.

      Mania is certainly good and I still believe that it's first 4 acts are downright the best showing of the classic formula to date but after that... everything else just falls flat for me (besides the music). The later levels fall into the same basic pitfalls seen in other classic titles from years back. It basically being a level compilation doesn't help it. There is virtually no story to speak of. And, while it can't be helped, it doesn't have Sonic 3's credit of actually being technically outstanding for the time.

      Though, this is coming from someone who is always going to be more Modern focused than anything so take this as you will.

      Sonic Mania has better level design than Sonic 3 IMO and the Drop Dash is a godsend. If I didn't dislike the bosses in Mania so much It'd probably be even.

    17. The Tenth Doctor

      The Tenth Doctor

      Sonic 3. Mania didn't keep my attention long, Sonic 3 gets me back every once in a while.

      Sonic 3. Not even a contest.

      I don't know... From what I hear from everyone, Mania surpassed Sonic 3K and is the best Sonic game. So be it I guess.

      To me, Mania has the better art and level design, and for some, gameplay is everything. To me, Mania lacks in setting, structure, and the experience as a whole. Mania felt way too artificial to me, is hard to explain, but I can't help but feel disappointed about the way the game feels.

      Is too much of a "party feel", it has no feel of adventure like Sonic 3K and even Sonic 1 did. The stage selection feels disjointed,  the fact that the reused stages changed enough for some, not for me, specially Act 1 of most of them. I was hoping for more changes to it, like Hydrocity for example was an insane disappointment in the first time I played it. I was dreaming about how a Act 2 would have changed, and at the end... It barely changed. It made me see that despite the insane hype surrounding it, it wasn't for me. Meanwhile it surpassed everyone else's expectations.

      I learned that I look forward about things that others don't. What is small details for some, to me is crucial. I was looking forward to the feel that Sonic 3K had, for the insane hype from the reveal to be justified, to feel nostalgic with everyone else and "feel the magic". I didn't see it. I still don't. And it just got worse because people treat it like the second coming of Christ. It makes me very upset that I do not see the big deal.

      Sonic 3K is just a game has almost everything on point. Like... Every section is well made. Mania surpasses some sections but heavily downgrades others. (Example Sonic 3K has great level design and great feel of adventure. Mania has near perfect level design and zero feel of adventure for me.)

      Sure, is nostalgia... But Sonic Mania wasn't for those fans of Sonic 3K in specific? What happend to me though? What I was expecting? lol

      I still hope for a Mania 2 to change that. A smaller game with fully original stages and a more solid setting and structure is all I ask for.

       

      Phew, that's a book.

  24. I've already posted this, but if you haven't watched this yet, you should.
