Fan-made Dragon Ball Z fighter is better than any official DBZ game

Okay, maybe I haven't played a Dragon Ball Z game since Budokai 2, but I think that claim would hold up, even if it's my affinity for 2D speaking. But seriously, this years-in-the-making, well animated, Mugen-based DBZ fan g...

Review: Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z photo
Review: Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z
by Wesley Ruscher

On paper, the thought of participating in an eight-player Dragon Ball Z battle sounds like the stuff of fanboy dreams. Blasting Kamehamehas across the chasms of Namek while fighting alongside your favorite Saiyans could be as exhilarating virtually as it was to watch years ago on TV.

Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z attempts to recreate this in all its chaotic glory. More than a simple one-versus-one fighter, the game is jam packed with characters -- from practically the entirety of the franchise -- that can be pitted in teams of four against each other in any dream combination possible.

Unfortunately in reality, having four Krillins trying to dismantle the likes of Androids 16 through 19 together is not even half as entertaining as the thought is ridiculous.

Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z has a stupid name, new trailer

Dibzboz is kind of fun to say, I guess. Battle of Z is probably a combination of an apology for the Dragon Ball Z Kinect game and a way to cash in on the fact that there is a new Dragon Ball Z movie that officially retcons G...

Review: Dragon Ball Z for Kinect
by Ian Bonds

It seemed like a good idea at the time: Take the popular Dragon Ball Z fighting games and put them in first person perspective with Kinect controls, allowing players to punch, kick, and Kamehameha their way through the series' popular battles, allowing players to be immersed in the Dragon Ball world like never before.

Wait... Kinect? No, I was wrong. That doesn't seem like a good idea at all.

A second look at Dragon Ball Z For Kinect

I guess Dtoid Show host Max Scoville didn't want to believe me when I said how Dragon Ball Z For Kinect will want to make you cry. He decided to go hands-on with it back at E3, and it turns out he really liked it. Probably because he's a freakishly giant child who likes stupid things. I, on the other hand, still can't get over how not fun Dragon Ball Z For Kinect is.

Look how much fun I had playing Dragon Ball Z For Kinect!

As promised, here's the video of me playing Dragon Ball Z For Kinect following-up on my hands-on impressions. Just look at me go! Flailing away like an idiot. Don't I look so happy?! For the record, I'm not faking anything here. I really felt this miserable during the entire experience.
