With Vidae's signups winding down I just wanted to start the signups for the DBZ game.

It will be running after Vidae's game and will have 24 participants. Everyone can apply but about 12 spots will be reserved for people that have known to be active, quality players. The last 12ish spots will be a lottery draw.


I would also like to mention that this is the first in a series of games which will have increasing spots available. So if you do not get into this game the next will probably have 10 more spots so don't worry.

I have never participated in one of these before, but I have immense DBZ knowledge and participate to extreme ends in everything else I join around here. If someone can give me a super basic run down of what I need to do, I'll join up. I'll check out some of the old ones in the meantime to see if I can figure it out.

Haha, my great fear is that I'll be some lame character. Btw, Krillin needs to miss with a destructo disc at some point. It's required in anything DBZ related that involves Krillin.

Since this is right around the corner and it won't ruin anything this is going to be a series of 5 games hitting on the four major sagas throughout DBZ.

The final game will be a mash up that is off the Mafia beaten path per say.

BeerBaron
04-13-2012, 10:59 AM
Saiyan, Frieza, Cell and Buu then?

ImBrotherCain
04-13-2012, 11:02 AM
Saiyan, Frieza, Cell and Buu then?

The 5th game will have characters from the sagas and movies. It was our original design but is complex and needed work so we figured we would save it for last and run through the DBZ story arch first.

Hence why I said that the following games will contain more characters as the cast of the show increases.

Again this is the first of a 5 game series so if you do not get in please don't fret. The following games will have increased enrollment due to an increase in characters.

If he ever actually connected with one of those destructo discs...it'd be game over for the baddie. He was able to cut Nappa's face and cut off Frieza's tail with it despite them being worlds better than him power-level wise.

Alas, he's about as accurate as a frisbee freshman throwing a flick....

Vegeta is where it's at. He was originally written to die on Earth the first time he appears but was such a fan favorite as a snarky asshole tank that he was kept in.

I love the whole early-Namek arc where he's basically this 3rd party interloper between the good guys (Krillin, Gohan, Bulma) and Frieza's gang.

Wasn't the Destructo Disc technique considered to be dishonorable? I figured that's why Krillin (and the couple other Z fighters who can use it) didn't just spam the damn things.

When Goku battled Frieza, Frieza, with his Lvl. 100 Conjuration skill and perk that lets you create two summoned creatures, conjured up the two Destructo Disks, and then Goku was all like, "How low can you sink?" or some other heroic nonsense.

Maybe it was because Frieza was so powerful that he shouldn't have to use an OP move, whereas Krillin is usually just along for the ride.

I love Vegeta, but too bad his ***** ass can't get past super saiyan 2. Some "royal" blood that is. Did Toriyama really plan to kill him on earth? That would have been terrible thank god the fans loved him.

Nappa was just a filler, but I don't think they should've killed off Raditz so quickly. If he switched sides like Vegeta he could have been a nice supporting character during the Namek saga, but with his attitude he probably would have never joined the good guys and their was no way Goku and Piccolo were strong enough at that time to make him surrender.

The Saiyan and Namek saga's we're definitely the best though. All of the supporting villains like Raditz, Nappa, Cui, Zarbon, Dodoria, The Ginyu Force, etc. made the show so much better than just having the androids, cell, and buu.

All of the mini plots made the show so much more interesting. It's like a conquest video game with all the secondary objectives which are so much more fun than the main quest lol. Nothing beats the Ginyu Force battles.

Possibly, but when your life (and the life of the 5 year son of your best friend) are on the line, not to mention the entire galaxy at the hands of a potentially immortal tyrant, nothing should be too dishonorable.

I've always thought that Krillin should just spam solar flare and destructo disc. He would have been 1000x more useful of a character and might have actually won at least one fight in the series.

There are so many situations like that, but obviously the show is never that easily. Just like Goku when he instant transmission's to king kai's planet and just chills for 2 minutes and waits for cell to blow up and die. He easily could have gotten himself, King Kai, bubbles, and gregory the hell out of there.

Anime's always have stupid stuff like that.

Perfect example right there. Using that combo Krillin could kill guys a million times stronger than him, but obviously the series won't go down like that. He could beat Frieze within 2 minutes of landing on Namek doing that.

Yeah, they took out a lot of the filler parts and condensed everything into half the time.

They also redid some of the voices which I'm iffy on.

So they dont spend whole episodes on powering up in that? I don't like the idea of voice changes, but I watched all of the movies in Japanese except for the dead zone so it shouldn't really be much of an issue.

Yeah, they do less of the long power up sequences and they also removed filler arcs that didn't appear in the original manga. (Gohan's wilderness training is cut down by like 3/4 iirc for example.)

Whenever they make an anime out of a still ongoing manga, they usually need to add filler in order to avoid getting ahead of the manga. A fight that might take an entire comic book to show might only take 10 minutes on TV, so they need to pad the **** out of it. DBZ is a particularly bad offender.

Kai basically cuts a lot of that down. When I bought the DVDs, I could have gone with Kai instead, but went with the original Funmation English dub.

CDCB14
04-14-2012, 01:29 AM
Kai shouldn't be mentioned in the same breath as the original funimation dub. Kai is a newer version meant to look nicer and is more kid friendly usually airing on saturday mornings. I understand that it does keep DBZ somewhat relevant and still make the company money, but other than that Kai shouldn't be mentioned along side the real DBZ. Doesn't even compare to the original.
