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.

Review: Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi photo
Review: Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi
by Ian Bonds

Dragon Ball Z games are a dime a dozen. The TV series may have ended 15 years ago, but that hasn't stopped developers and publishers from trying to make the ultimate recreation of the show's experience in game form. The latest attempt even goes so far as to claim such right there in the title!

So what makes Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi so... well... ultimate? Is this truly a case of truth in advertising, or is it merely a wish made once all seven Dragon Balls are gathered? Read on, dear friends, and ready those "Over 9000!" comments.

DBZ: Ultimate Tenkaichi allows you to Frankenstein a hero

In my previous post about Dragon Ball Z: Ultimate Tenkaichi, I suggested that new game-exclusive characters needed to be introduced in order to spice up the franchise. I suppose Spike and Namco Bandai were listening, but sin...

OH BOY! New Dragon Ball Z game announced

Yup, a new Dragon Ball Z game is on the way from Namco Bandai. This one is called Dragon Ball Game Project Age 2011 and I sincerely hope that's just a working title. The new game will be hitting the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and will see the Z Warriors discussing politics in a real time strategy setting. Actually I'm kidding. The game is about fighting just like all the others you idiots.

Dragonball GT PS1 game costs $7,000

Have a new Dragon Ball DS 2: Assault! Red Ribbon Army trailer

I'm sure I'll seem like a Philistine to my cohorts over at Japanator, but I have to admit that Dragon Ball is really the only manga I'm familiar with. I spent a year living with my Dad in France when I was kid, about the tim...

Namco Bandai acquires Dragon Ball franchise, could hint at Atari's future

Once upon a time, the Dragon Ball franchise was behind some of Atari’s highest grossing titles. Throw the words “dragon” “ball” and “budokai” on a box and Atari would be looking at mo...

Destructoid Exclusive: Dragonball Z: Infinite World screens
by Jim Sterling

For some reason, we have five exclusive screens of Atari's upcoming PS2 title, Drazonball Z: Infinite World.

Infinite World is similar to other DBZ fighting games, except it features new "Dragon Missions" which recreate many moments from the anime and charge the player with tasks that are't restricted purely to pugilism. For instance, one of the announced missions involves running the length of Snake Way within a time limit. A similar feature was in the first Budokai, but was ommitted from follow up games.
