I haven't played a DBZ game since Burst Limit. Have any of the recent ones been any good?
All of these games look the same to me.
I'd avoid Ultimate Tenkaichi. It's just a QTE fest filled with cutscenes. And if you actually enjoyed Budokai Tenkaichi during the PS2 days, you can't go wrong with Raging Blast 2. Though there really aren't really any fundamental changes. Battle of Z is going to be the first DBZ game in years, that seems to change things up, with an up to 8 players Battle Royal.
I was just about to say that along with the Naruto games
Super Saiyan God? Lol, what?
It's pretty much a glorified Kaio-ken.
Why didn't they just call it Super Saiyan 4? I think that's what they were up to, right? Or do they all have odd names like that in the Japanese versions?
Probably to distance it from Dragon Ball GT. The new Movie that came out, which introduces Super Saiyan God, is the official continuation of DBZ.
Oh, I don't even know what that is. Not a ubber fan obviously. Does it suck, I'm guessing?
Yes, it sucks.
This was the Super Saiyan 4 in GT.
It was really weird. Apparently Toriyama and Yamamuro kept going back and forth on how this next stage of Super Saiyan should look like. Yamamuro wanted a middle ground between a Super Saiyan 3 and his design of Super Saiyan 4 from GT while Toriyama wanted to keep Goku looking essentially the same and make him less muscular and give him the Kaio-ken glow.
They went with the latter. As for the choice of God over 4 remains a mystery. I would assume that God just sounds more alluring and powerful.
EDIT: Probably along with what Nathan mentioned too.
Um, interesting. I had no idea there was such strife about the franchise.
Is that...fur tops?
I'll be honest I think I like the look of Super Saiyan 4 a lot more. Super Saiyan God was really underwhelming. It's just a taller and leaner Kaio-ken state. That's it.
I didn't even know that's all it was. I only saw those images online, of a basically Golden Super Saiyan 4.
Those were fan made.
This is what we got instead.
Yep, underwhelming. But then again, I really liked Gohan's Ultimate Form, which was basically spiky black hair.
I liked it too but for some reason that worked better than this SSG mode.
You're right. At least Gohan's face looked way more mature and even the hair looked a bit different once he was fully powered up. Goku looks exactly the same. He just glows now.
and apparently lost 20 pounds of muscle.
Super Saiyan God. Also known as the Bruce Lee mode.
IMO, the only thing SS4 had going for it was the black hair and red eyes, that was cool. Everything else like the pink fur and tail was awful. I once photshopped SS4 Goku's head onto his regular DBZ body, looked pretty cool.
Anyway, this game looks like your normal Tenkaichi fest, lately those are hit and miss.
There's been no innovation in these games and the little that has been changed has been for the worst.
