    On your lap.
    I have Kai on DVD and Blu Ray and I've played countless DBZ games retelling the exact same story. Gimme a Xenoverse 3.

    Though, I think this looks like a good game if you're not fatigued from recycling the same story over and over. Probably better than the DBZ RPGs I've played.

    It IS strange if you think about it:rofl: So Kakarot lets Vegeta fight? But I wonder if Vegeta gets his ass kicked like for millionth times.

    How do you know how this game looks ? I only see one single picture not showing much of a gameplay or anything.

    thanks didn't know this but after watching ... they showed not a single gameplay scene and no RPG element seen as well ... could well be just some rendered video and real game looks like shit in the end (doubt it but who knows)

    And saying this could be the best RPG is brave withouth seeing any gameplay.

    best one ever was the SNES one with the Cards fighting system

    Not interested in 800 hours of glorified diarrhea sounds for 15 minutes of actual fights.

    Dbz abridged is far better at conveying the lore.

    The game looks really good, and I will definitely be picking it up day one, but really disappointed that it's from the beginning. They should have started from the end of Z when they defeated Buu and make a DB Super game.

    My issue isn't that the game starts too early in Z. My issue is that they didn't go back far enough.

    I think the original Dragonball is begging to be presented as an open world game. The original series was all about adventure and exploration and collecting the Dragonballs. There's a lot of free time for Goku to go on adventures as well and there are several time jumps in the original series where all kinds of things could happen.

    By the time we get to Z, Goku can zoom around the world relatively quickly. Granted, that's not until after he comes back to life. Post-Namek he can just teleport everywhere that has a ki presence. Collecting the Dragonballs and adventuring became extremely trivial at that point.

    And another problem with having this game take place from the start of Z to the end of Namek is that there's so little free time for Goku to do anything. I'm not surprised that we have Gohan, Piccolo, and Vegeta playable because the game would be super quick otherwise.

    Here's a quick timeline of Goku's life from the start of Z to the end of Namek.

    1. Raditz kidnaps Gohan immediately.
    2. Goku fights Raditz within an hour or so of him kidnapping Gohan. Goku dies.
    3. Goku immediately runs along snakeway and then spends a bunch of time training with King Kai on a tiny planet that doesn't make for a good open world.
    4. Goku rushes back to Earth.
    5. Minutes after getting back to Earth he fights Nappa and Vegeta.
    6. Goku is incapacitated for a long time.
    7. The second he's better he jumps on a ship to Namek.
    8. The second he gets to Namek he goes off to fight the Ginyu force and then immediately has to heal.
    9. The second he gets better he goes to fight Frieza.
    10. Namek blows up and this game (presumably) ends.


    There's so little room for activities!

    These never ending energy sounds let my ears bleed.

    And CyberConnect2? Their cutscenes are gold, their gameplay feels empty and old.

    As excited as I am to have a new DB ARPG, I still wish we could get a sequel to Attack of the Saiyans. It seems like no one talks about such a masterpiece, but it does get extremely hard near the end of the game.

    Xenoverse 1 and 2 was the same story but with a few changes in history but it was still enjoyable
