Competent, but not excitingly so
When it comes to Dragon Ball Z fighting games, I am one of those people who loves them for the over-the-top spectacle more than the technical fighting specifics involved. I know when a fighting game feels responsive and plays...
Super Butoden 2, an SNES game
Some of my fondest gaming memories involve late-night fighting sessions with Dragon Ball Z games. The Butoden series was a classic, but I also played plenty of Dragon Ball Z: Legends on the original PlayStation, wh...
The Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden 3DS package has been reworked, and now it includes a New 3DS unit, cover plates, a pre-installed version of the game, and the SNES game Super Butoden. This bundle is only available in select...
It's on 3DS eShop now
Bandai Namco announced a Dragon Ball Z Extreme Butoden demo for Europe recently, but come to find out, it's actually available in North America too. All you have to do is search the 3DS eShop manually for "Dragon Ball Z,...
Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden is looking pretty sharp, and will arrive overseas this year from Arc System Works. We finally have some concrete information on pre-order bonuses as it applies to the US (the UK gets a limi...
From Arc System Works
After we found out that Bandai Namco had rated Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden for Australia, it was only a matter of time until it a localization was announced. Dragon Ball games typically do very well and are a no-brain...
From Arc System Works
Arc System Works has been busy crafting Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Botuden, a new 2D fighting game that looks pretty kickass. There wasn't a whole lot of information that led us to believe there would be a western release anytime...
Gosh, it was so hard to get more than a boring Goku on Vegeta still out of the new Arc System Works 3DS fighter for months. Then there was the meaty 8 minutes and cheese head lady. And now here's another commercial. Makes sense. It comes out next week in Japan.
And remember, the fan-made Dragon Ball Z fighter still looks amazing.
2D will ride again!
Last month we finally got a look (in video form) at the new 2D Dragon Ball Z fighter from BlazBlue developer Arc System Works. One month ahead of its Japanese release date, Bandai Namco has released another decent length loo...
Dragon Ball Super
Dragon Ball hasn't had a live TV series since the 90s, but that's about to change with Dragon Ball Super, a brand new show on the way to Fuji TV in Japan in July -- and given how popular the series is all over the world,...
$9.99 or part of the $24.99 Season Pass
Dragon Ball XenoVerse is still chugging along with DLC, and the third pack will arrive very soon. It will decidedly focus on the new film Resurrection F, featuring four new characters.
Also found in the DLC is five ...
Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden by Arc System Works sounds amazing on paper, and no we longer have to settle for a brief look -- we can ogle at the whole damn thing thanks to YouTube user ShonenGameZ. The entire demo is on di...
From Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F'
Remember when Frieza said that he had changed into his final form on Namek? Well he lied. In the newest Dragon Ball Z movie titled Resurrection 'F', Frieza will be reincarnated as Golden Frieza, taking on the gang once again....
There is perhaps less urgency in the Hyper Dragon Ball Z fan fighter coming to fruition now that Arc System Works (Guilty Gear) is releasing a robust 2D Dragon Ball Z fighter.
That does not mean I do not want to play both games, however. Especially because Hyper Dragon Ball Z is still looking excellent, as you can see above. That Gohan speaks to me on an emotional level.
Arc System Works 2D fighter needs a longer trailer
Please cut a longer trailer, Namco. Arc System Works' (Guilty Gear) upcoming Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden is the best thing to hit DBZ videogames since this unsanctioned 2D fan fighter.
But damn, I just want to see more of...
Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butōden, developed by Arc System Works, is coming this year on the 3DS. It's all set for a Japanese-only release for now, and as of this week we have a final release date -- June 11.
If you pick up...
Is this the final form?
Dragon Ball Z games have been quite the rollercoaster over the past couple decades. The Budokai series often stands out among fans as some of the best entries into the crowded scene, thanks to its developer Dimps. Well, Dimps is back with Dragon Ball Xenoverse, so naturally fans are excited.
A Dragon Ball fighting game developed by Dimps, what could go wrong?
Loving the art style
Arc System Works is developing the Dragon Ball Z fighting game Extreme Butoden right now for the Nintendo 3DS, and these early pictures are sweet. As a fan of the Butoden franchise they really bring me back, and I'm loving th...
The first series entry since 2011
Most Dragon Ball fanatics that were alive during the retro era have probably played, or at least heard of the Butōden series. Making its debut in 1993 on the SNES in Japan, the 2D fighter was something else, al...
He's really the Prince of All Jerks
I was surprised to find myself given the opportunity to interview Christopher Sabat; the founder of voice over studio, Okratron500, and the voice actor for Vegeta, and many other Dragon Ball characters.
I've been a huge Drag...
Look, games are hard sometimes
Today on Just Saiyan: The Dragon Ball Advanced Adventure saga: Bill and I get our asses kicked by this stupid Red Ribbon Army boss fight for most of the video. But, we tell some of our deepest darkest secrets while this is happening.
The cat's butt gazes also into you
Max and I were finally able to resume our series of playing Dragon Ball games, and talking about which Dragon Ball characters are cool and sexually attractive. This is the first of many more to come, so enjoy... unless you don't like Dragon Ball, in which case; why did you click a post with "Saiyan" in the title?
It looks pretty open
Dragon Ball Xenoverse is looking to be a pretty open-ended game in terms of custom movesets. Based on this new gameplay trailer, you can learn new specials from existing characters and choose your favorites.
I've always been partial to Makankosappo -- whenever I get migraines I sometimes pretend I can do it. Xenoverse is set to hit the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One in 2015.
I should have known this all along, but I was holding out hope that it would actually be a new character. That "mysterious character" in Dragon Ball Xenoverse is a custom creation. So, in essence, it's "you."
You'll be able t...
I want both of them either way
A group of Dragon Ball Online fans, who happen to also be developers, are translating the game into English and re-releasing it as Dragon Ball Online: Revelations. Meanwhile, we've got more screenshots of Dragon Ball Xenoverse, a game which I still firmly believe to be an adaptation of Dragon Ball Online.
English-speaking players will finally get a chance to rock the dragon
Dragon Ball Online shut down its last set of servers in October of last year, but fans are trying their best to relaunch it as Dragon Ball Online: Revelations. In addition to English the game is also being translated to seve...
He shops at all the same places as Trunks
A new batch of screens and art have revealed more of the mysterious figure seen during the announcement of Dragon Ball Xenoverse at E3 2014. This character, uncharacteristically for Saiyans, seems to have red hair instead of ...
R.I.P. Murasaki's b-hole
In this final episode of the first Dragon Ball: Advanced Adventure saga: Max and I tackle Muscle Tower, talk about Murasaki's ass pole, Goku's descent into madness, and which Dragon Ball characters we'd like to hang out with.
Happy card battle good time fun, on the next episode of Dragon Ball Z!
Dragon Ball Heroes: Ultimate Mission 2 is a port of the arcade game Dragon Ball Heroes and is a card battling fighting game. So, you already know I'm interested. It contains more than 2000 cards to collect and fight with an...
