Just Saiyan: The Dragon Ball Raging Blast Saga Part Three photo
Just Saiyan: The Dragon Ball Raging Blast Saga Part Three
by Bill Zoeker

Max and I have somehow been allowed to make an all Dragon Ball Let's Play series, called Just Saiyan, and we have no intention of stopping. Here's the third and final episode of our first "Raging Blast Saga". We just filmed a bunch of stuff for our next saga, so let us know what you like and don't like, and we'll incorporate or ignore those things.

If you missed it last week, Bill and I started an all Dragon Ball let's-play/let's-bullshit-about series called Just Saiyan, since we spend most of our workdays arguing like twelve-year-olds about whether or not Vegeta is cool. There are several dozen Dragon Ball Z games, so Bill and I are going on a "Mystical Adventure" and taking a "Grand Tour" of as many of these titles as possible. First up is Dragon Ball: Raging Blast on Xbox 360.

Join us in the comments to discuss things so dorky we've been embarrassed to talk about them in public since high school.

Here is the debut episode of Just Saiyan! A Let's Play series devoted entirely to exploring the very long list of video games based on Dragon Ball, Dragon Ball Z, and Dragon Ball GT.

Today, the Max and myself are playing 2009's Dragon Ball Z: Raging Blast, which is a Dragon Ball fighting game in which Dragon Ball characters... uhh... fight each other. Is it a blast to play? Or will it leave us raging? Let's find out.

Hopefully details about the newest Dragon Ball project will come faster than Frieza's defeat

There's a new Dragon Ball Z game in the works for PlayStation 4

The latest issue of V Jump magazine is showing off a brand new Dragon Ball Z game. What makes this significant in particular is that it's going to be the first Dragon Ball Z title to hit the current-generation of consoles. We...

Fan-made Dragon Ball Z fighter is better than any official DBZ game photo
Fan-made Dragon Ball Z fighter is better than any official DBZ game
by Steven Hansen

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 game looks rad as heck. It's the best Mugen-based fighter since Dong Dong Never Die.

That Yajirobe in the stage background is amazing.

And now I feel like playing Gundam Battle Assault 2.

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 photo
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.
