    Ugggghhhhhhhh. Stuff ya Bandai. We want another Tenkaichi Budokai / Raging Blast, not another Xenoverse.

    XV1 was alright, but certain builds were stupidly OP when it came to multiplayer. Also hated the fact that you only had 1 super saiyan form to choose from when you picked a character.

      I've been waiting for XV to hit the bargain bin because I don't care for any kind of multiplayer. Is the game worthwhile for building a character and playing through the solo story/campaign? Because that's all I want to do, I don't care about mucking about with multiplayer which I feel is a big part of it.

        I didn't to MP at all other than against my brother, the SP was much more enjoyable for me.

        Totally playable single player, but you will need to do a tiny bit of grinding mid game, and potentially a moderate amount depending on your build/skill/etc for late game. The grind isn't painful, it's just playing a bunch of the Parallel Quest stuff which can be a lot of fun (and has co op).

          Sounds great. Still going to wait til the time travel edition is on sale on XBL, but definitely going to jump in. Heck if I like it I might even get XV2 at launch.

            For some reason XV has never really had a "proper" sale on Steam. I think the lowest I've seen it was 50% off which was like $30USD...

            No idea if consoles are different, but good luck regardless. It's a pretty fun game.

              It was on sale on XB1 once, might have been 50% off but I wasn't committed and also broke that week. Next time it goes on sale (which I expect it will some time before XV2 drops) I'll snap it up.

        Got it digitally for the PS4 during a sale for $30, worth it at that price.

    So we're getting another "Protect History" story just with more of the movies added? Well that's me out. I'll wait till the reviews hit.

    The lack of anything Super-related is concerning. Might be worth picking up if they've improved the balance, but will wait until the reviews to see that.

    I feel like Xenoverse captured the look of DBZ more than any of the games, even if it wasn't as mechanically good as Budokai.

    Hopefully they fix a bunch of the issues that the first one had, like clunky menus and getting dropped right back out between matches, and no proper transformations for saiyan. Also the terrible hub....

    I hope they do a collectors edition with a Master Stars figure again.

    I want a HD render of Tenkaichi 3, or raging blast, but preferably Tenkaichi 3. The PS2 discs for those games were terrible, the slightest scratch and they wouldn't work, but god damn when they did work they were good.

    I'm just down with more character customisation. I think my favourite thing about Xenoverse was no matter what options you slapped together on your character, they all still looked like they belonged in the DBverse.

    Give me some goddamn beam struggles!

    - Flying around the hub world
    - Faster getting around the hub world
    - Level up to multiple forms in a battle
    - More balanced fighting

    I hope they make it on the ps4 for Europe and Australia hearing it's been an exclusive why make xenoverse 1 for ps4 for aus and Europe but not for xenoverse 2 that's so wrong nearly all dragon ball games have been made for the ps4 not x box kotaku or dimps make it for Australia on ps4 as well I will be mad If it isn't cause I love the dragon ball games and series make,it for the ps4'in Europe and Australia and America
