#1949413 Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker (PS4/Xbox One/PC)

Posted by Firaga on 15 June 2017 - 02:00 PM

Shukaku was in the last scans, so I think Gaara's pretty much confirmed at this point, too.


As for your predictions, they're all pretty solid. Would be nice to have more characters from Part 2 (Along with people like Hanabi and Toneri), but given how huge the roster is and the fact that this isn't just another Storm game where they could reuse models/movesets, it's understandable that there might not be a lot of characters who weren't in Storm 4.


... Although I still need Kushina. Rin would be nice, too.


Forgot about Shukaku, honestly. Might as well count the rest of the Jinchuriki in there while we're at it.


Hanabi will probably definetly be in, though I only say that because of her involvement in more recent things like The Last and the Boruto anime. She's gotten a lot of attention lately for someone who barely had any sceentime or even lines in the original manga. xD


Kushina is also a good choice for obvious reasons though I think it'd be fun to get away from the whole "super powered housewife" schtick she had in Storm and focus more on having her use some Nine Tails or even Uzumaki sealing style attacks. She can still be comedic, but still, nothing wrong with a little change-up.


I'm not sure about Rin. I mean, maybe if a Boyhood arc Kakashi and Obito are included but I just don't really see that happening either.

#1949287 "Sly Cooper" Cartoon In Development

Posted by Firaga on 14 June 2017 - 10:46 PM

Huh, I never knew that Sly had faded away from popularity. I always assumed that the next sequel was just being kept under wraps! :O


So, a cartoon, eh? That's pretty awesome! I'm sure that it'll boost Sly back up into popularity, and then it won't be long till a fifth Sly is announced! :D


Eh, I worded that kinda weird in the first iteration of the post, so ignore that. A franchise can't be waning in popularity if it hasn't even had a full game in three years. xD


Still, more Sly stuff is still a good thing.

#1949276 "Sly Cooper" Cartoon In Development

Posted by Firaga on 14 June 2017 - 10:01 PM



Remember when that Sly Cooper movie was teased all the way back in the ancient year of 2014? Well either that is still on the fence or it has been broken down and rebuilt as this upcoming animated series by Sony and Technicolor Animation Productions. No details on a release date nor for voice cast roles are available at this time.


Here's what we know about the show so far:


The series will follow Sly Cooper and his two best friends, the muscular hippo Murray and the intelligent turtle Bentley, as they steal and try to save Sly's city while being on the run from Inspector Carmelita Fox.

The show will also feature a few of Sly Cooper's villains and promises to retain the franchise's blend of action and humor. No release date for the show has been set yet and there are no details regarding the voice cast.


Also, by word of Sandrine Nguyen, Managing Director, Technicolor Animation Productions:


There is no doubt that teenagers will be happy to rediscover their beloved game as a series, while younger kids will be charmed by the debonair raccoon and his exciting universe.


I, for one, was hooked the minute I read that this would be handled by Technicolor because they are the same team behind the Sonic Boom cartoon, and if this is anything like the Sonic Boom cartoon (which is insanely funny and entertaining and I recommend both fans of Sonic and cartoons in general to check it out), it will be a sure-fire hit that will hopefully breed interest for even more Sly stuff in the future. We do still need a Sly 5 after all. Fingers crossed.  :wacko:

As someone with partial Hispanic heritage, I share this sentiment.


Also, way to ignore the low-hanging fruit of pointing out racial stereotypes involving Captain Mama Mia himself... actually, that's a good thing, continue to ignore that, we don't need another comment like this.

#1948630 "DragonBall FighterZ" (PS4/XB1/PC)

Posted by Firaga on 12 June 2017 - 01:31 PM

Straight from Bandai Namco and I assume a playable demo from E3, we have gameplay footage!


Videos provided by DBZanto.


Not much to say except this is so far delivering on everything I had hoped for from the info we had been given previously: intro/transition cutscenes, dashing, flying (well sort of flying), ki blasts, assist characters, tons of easter eggs, and the return of stage explosions, baby.

Thoughts on Season 2, Episode 11:



#1948483 "DragonBall FighterZ" (PS4/XB1/PC)

The game will receive a closed beta for PS4 and Xbox One players this coming summer, with more details to follow soon.

#1948444 "DragonBall FighterZ" (PS4/XB1/PC)

Posted by Firaga on 11 June 2017 - 08:03 PM

Also, looks like the title is Dragonball Fighter Z, not Dragonball Fighters.


Actually, it is "DragonBall FighterZ" as in "DragonBall Fighters with a 'Z' instead of an 's'" because of course a DragonBall game would use that pun, I'm surprised it hasn't been done before already. xD


Anyways, that trailer:




Holy smokes, baloney, fudge and mustard, stop the presses, stop the motherf*cking internet... I gotta say something about this. xD


My God, that was intense. Every goddamn thing in this trailer on was on-point, I don't give a damn about what anybody has to say.


The graphics/art style looks exactly like-no not even exactly like, it looks better than any of the anime or animated movies or whatever that has come out of the series proper. It is gorgeous to look at, it uses that 2.5D perspective that the dev team is known for, and everything from movement in-game, in cutscenes, just to posing for something, it looks clean af, man. And the gameplay itself? Even if it didn't go as crazy as it could have for a DragonBall level fighter (in the time it was allowed that is, it is just a less-than-a minute and a half trailer, not much you can do about that), it looked hard hittingespecially combined with the ki blast deflection, the dashing, the attacks, particle effects, 3v3 action, and of course, the goddamn ultimate movie cutscenes, which again, clean af. And on top of all that, we have confirmation that there will, in fact, be DBS content with that small snippet of SSJ3 Goku fighting Golden Freeza.

Oh, be still my beating heart. I need to gather the Dragon Balls because I need to make a wish to make the year of 2018 get here right now.

#1948426 "Black Panther" Teaser Trailer

Posted by Firaga on 11 June 2017 - 07:39 PM

Hey its that guy! He was able to put scratches and dents on Captain America's shield during civil war!!


My fav is still Peter Parker tho for his 'Everyone's got a gimmick now!' quote lol


He was awesome in Civil War, and I can say that now since I actually got to see it yesterday finally. xD


Also, I'm pretty sure Falcon/Sam Wilson said that, not Peter Parker, but I do agree that Tom Holland killed it as PP/Spidey in Civil War because of said viewing.

#1947806 "DragonBall FighterZ" (PS4/XB1/PC)

Posted by Firaga on 10 June 2017 - 01:01 AM

Aaaaand since I made an earlier post similar to the one I'm about to make now and because I want more views/comments on this thread, here's this xD:


Up above, I've already listed the (so far) confirmed playable characters for the game based on the screenshots we recieved... and if you somehow missed that, here they are:




But as for other characters, I predict that, based on factors of general roster balance as well as picking the most relevant characters from the base series as well as the currently running DragonBall Super, that these characters will be playable.



#1947802 Naruto to Boruto: Shinobi Striker (PS4/Xbox One/PC)

Posted by Firaga on 10 June 2017 - 12:44 AM

So, I'm just spitballing here, but I've been thinking about what kind of roster this game is going to have. Obviously, it'll most definetly be stacked due to the team mechanics and the inherent need to provide as many tag combos from various characters as possible but I put some particular thinking into this roster based on both the regular Naruto favorites that will be involved as well as the inclusion of Boruto.


Of course, we have characters confirmed so far:




But here are my predictions for some, if not, the entirety of the roster (assuming that the Naruto characters will only have Shippuden incarnations and not have later Boruto incarnations):

Butoden came before Budokai, don't forget that one.


Oh yes, of course. That's even more old school, dating back to the early 90s, and a franchise which has fairly decent titles in its right except Ultimate Battle 22 and Final Bout.

#1947779 "DragonBall FighterZ" (PS4/XB1/PC)

Posted by Firaga on 09 June 2017 - 11:14 PM

Hmm, well this is interesting! Honestly, the only Dragon Ball games I've played are the three Budokai Tenkaichi games, two of which I own, and the third which I would play with my best friend/soul brother Jonathan during our Junior High years! Damn, those were good times!


From the sound of it, it looks like this game will incorporate a unique approach to the Dragon Ball fighting game series, and it might prove to be a big hit! I think that it'll be pretty awesome! :D


Believe me, this will be a different experience, especially for you. As I mentioned in the post, this is closer to the original Budokai games that came out around the same time as BT, which are more complex in terms of button input and all that and therefore more closer to legitimate fighters, which is fitting given that this is a developer that does in fact make legitimate fighters as well.
