Everything You Need to Know About Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2

dragon-ball-xenoverse-2

I, like everyone else (on Steam, that is), logged dozens of hours into Dragon Ball Xenoverse. I couldn’t get enough of the game that reminded me of the glee of binge-watching bootleg VHSes of the extraterrestrial kungfu show in my childhood room. Never before did a Dragon Ball game demand my attention, or even garner my attention for that matter. The developers over at Dimps seemed to understand what made Dragon Ball Z so great; the kinetic action, the farcical dialogue and nonsensical story, the unapologetic assault on sound and vision. Xenoverse finally felt like the show.

Luckily for Dragon Ball fans, Bandai Namco is releasing a sequel to the near-perfectly-formulated game. But, you might ask, “What else could they add to such a feature-packed game?”

I’ve compiled a list of answers to questions just like that (so you may be able to get your own personal hype train going at full speed) along with everything else you need to know before Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 hits the shelves in late October.

The Seven Prettiest Puzzle Games

prettiest-puzzle-games

Puzzle games tend to be on the beautiful side. Smart developers must realize that the player will spend most of his or her time inspecting, studying and generally staring at their digital surroundings, so you better make it damn beautiful to look at. Whether it be surveying aseptic Aperture Science labs in Portal or navigating derelict spaceships in The Swapper, these video games transport you to ponderously pretty and preposterously puzzling places.  (There are so many astonishingly beautiful games out there so picking only seven was a quite a task!) Here are the seven prettiest puzzle games in my estimation.

Top 5 Reasons We Need a New Sailor Moon Game

Sailor Moon was a childhood obsession of almost every girl and — in secret — boy who had the honor of growing up in the late ’90s/early 2000s. Who couldn’t love Sailor Moon? It’s a hyper-cute, all-female (excluding the tuxedoed gentleman in the mask) version of the Avengers. You know what a super-popular ’90s cartoon sounds like to me? A good video game waiting to happen.

5 Reasons a Female Link Would Be Awesome

the-legend-of-zelda-wii-u-e3

Everyone’s been talking about the spectacular looking Zelda Wii U game. For good reason, too. Because — and I believe I mentioned this earlier — it is spectacular looking. 

Also, the game is purportedly open-world. Open what, you might exclaim.  Yep, you read correctly. A beautifully-rendered watercolor world that’s completely free to explore in a Zelda title. That’s pretty amazing.

The sneak peek of the new Legend of Zelda game that Nintendo’s Digital Event gave us sparked something unexpected as well. The character featured in the snippet of gameplay looks undeniably feminine. Is it Link? Is Link female? Is Link even a girl’s name? (Admittedly, the last question has only been asked by me.)

I was surprised to find a strong negative reaction to the possibility of a female Link from Legend of Zelda fans. I can understand diehard fans resisting alterations to beloved characters. But c’mooon. There’s at least five reasons a female Link would be awesome. Read on to find out what they are.
