Oddly enough, Xenoverse runs with that, despite how in the series itself they're an extremely close team, a very weird thing for Dragon Ball where even the good guys are absolutely terrible at teamwork.

I've been watching the old DBZ movies as I make my way through Kai and man these are a mixed bag. I was falling asleep in the last half of Tree of Might. World's Strongest was aight tho. The first five minutes of Lord Slug are Gohan dancing with his dragon as a performance to Piccolo as he angrily mediates so that's very good

also Dead Zone felt super weird for some reason I have no idea why. Like I felt I dreamed the entire thing

No, I demand we redirect it to a fake Planet Namek site that portrays the series as if the Fake Namek arc was real Namek, and we go from there with stupid parody ripoffs of everything else in the series. Like Frieza is Friya, the Ginyu Force is Kola Squad, instead of Androids we gave Mechanoids, etc etc, and have bios and poo poo and fake power level charts and stuff.

I've been playing a bit of the Xenoverse 2 DLC and I like who they've cast for the dub Super characters, even if the actual voice direction in Xenoverse 2 isn't the greatest.

Fused Zamasu's "Back again Trunks? Whose aid did you bring this time?" line sure sounds Zamasu as gently caress to me in a good way.

Appearntly his voice is a placeholder and they have someone else in mind when the dub actually gets there.

Holy poo poo wow. Indeed placeholder is the best word to describe Zamasu's voice. It sounds like one of those voice programs 12 years old use in their "iwannabelikepewdiepie" videos. The "Trunks, you are a sinner" line sounds extra awful as if it was recorded in two different takes and then badly spliced together.

And Goku Black's hilarious. He goes from Big Boss' gruff to every RPG's smarmy magician voice when he goes Rose.

The Fused Zamasu one is not all that bad though. Needs a little bit less echo maybe, but it's not downright terrible like the other 3 voices.

I want this game now.

quote:

Piccolo

Piccolo is considered to be one of the most technical characters with his expandable arm to grab his opponents. He has various ways to break the opponent’s guard and he can also fire fast and powerful beams. Players can charge up for a stronger attack by long-pressing the button. To create a huge blow, Piccolo can use his ability to release Ki blast from a range. For an effective strike, players will can even connect it with a combo move!

Krillin

Dragon Ball FighterZ

Krilin doesn’t have that much reach and power but easily compensate with several different techniques such as the Kamehameha to fight a long-range game. He also has tricky skill to confuse the opponent by leaving an image of himself before turning into an attack. Furthermore, players will gain extra by using the famous Senzu Bean. Fans will be delighted to know that his signature and unblokable attack is also included in Dragon Ball FighterZ.

Online Battles

In the Online Battles of Dragon Ball FighterZ, players can fight and interact with other users in the FighterZ lobby. That’s the perfect place to rise up to the arena stage and get matched with other users who are willing to battle! Players can also communicate with Z-Stamp, use facial expressions from Dragon Ball characters and watch their match with the replay mode!

This is going to sound odd and I'm not an animator and never animated, but I always thought scenes like that were the hardest (or at least hard) thing to animate. By that I mean scenes where the imaginary camera revolves around a target so you slowly see it from different sides. It just seems that you would need more frames to make that look fluid than any other type of motion.

That sort of thing IS hard, which is why when you see modern animation "cheat" and use 3D models, it's often when they're doing a gratuitous camera spin or something.

It is in fact extremely hard to animate, especially if they aren't taking any shortcuts with CGI, I actually find that interesting about Super, the animation budget obviously isn't the highest but, especially recently, they often have shots and scenes where the character movement is very dramatic and gets accompanied with extreme shifts in perspective, that poo poo's like the hardest loving thing to do and they often throw it in for shits and giggles.

In anime there's a lot of tropes they have that are designed to disguise a lack of animation, one of the reasons character mouths often seem so small is so they can have just have their mouth being animated while talking without the rest of the face or body shifting at all, it gets really obvious in some scenes in Z. In the first episode of the Tournament proper there were a lot of clearly reused shots, one particularly notable one was Basil kicking out an energy blast, they used that at least three times, and I think they actually made it for the fight he had with Buu like 20 episodes previously. That kind of thing is common, but in that case it was unusually obvious and there was a bit of blowback as a result. Finally they also have a lot of complex but still dramatic poses which are kept onscreen for quite a long time, usually to emphasis a emotional or action crescendo, a lot like a splash page in a comic actually, the recent fight between Goku and Frieza had a really good example of that:

It is hard because it means you cannot just re-use an asset. Depending on what sort of thing you're animating you might be able to redraw only small things like faces, heads, hand/arm movements etc and have the rest of the character remain as-is. But when the perspective itself changes you really cannot do that, you have to redraw the whole thing. I'm sure there's a lot of stuff you can still re-use (and in that gif you can clearly see that in some frame transitions body shapes remain static while only smaller elements move around), but it's still a lot more stuff to do compared to a non-shifting perspective.
