So, I ask this every year, but now that the sale is on again:

Xenoverse 1: Do I want it?

Is it at least fun to play, with interesting content?

I enjoyed my time with it, yeah.

It doesn't have the depth of a good DBZ Fighting Game, it's a lot better then Battle of Z, and there is a huge amount of DBZ content, yeah.

It's a great DBZ Beat-em-up with good customization, races, customizable movesets, and a great character roster.

Bought it before reading this, but makes me feel good about my choice. thumb up

I'm really interested in the GT elements, they sound pretty interesting.

In terms of moves and characters the GT content is alright, but Golden Frieza and his ult move emperor's death beam stole the show for me personally, especially when I unlocked it as a move for my character to use.

The RNG for reward drop rates with parallel quests is utter trash, tho heard they improved it some with the sequel, but still not enough for me to really want to get it.

With the other grinding there is, you can forgive the the garbage RNG for awhile, but once you really want to start having certain moves unlocked that you can only get from the PQ's, you'll probably hate the game for awhile as I did.

Ooh, should have looked up the sagas BEFORE buying.

So the GT content is all DLC.

Did not expect that. Battle of the Gods stuff, Resurrection of F, sure, but figured I was weird in having any interest in GT at all.

Probably won't be getting any dlc for the prices, 10 bucks a pop. That's crazy.

Yeah you should have asked us, the GT Content does add quite a bit though, including a whole GT storyline, new moves (My favorite move in the entire game is in the GT DLC, which is Final Shine Attack), outfits, characters, and transformations as well as multiplayer missions.

I bought it just recently, if you wanna level up characters quicker, once you unlock the Broly side-story, do it over and over. It's not that big of a grind and it gives you SOOOOOOOOOOOOO much exp, its not even that difficult either once ya know what you're doing.

Well when you get the dragon balls (usually grinded out as item drops from certain parallel quests) and wish for a new character, you'll get Super 17, Omega Shenron, and SSJ4 Gogeta (along with SSJ4 Goku) in the base game, so there's that.

The DLC was worth it though IMO, but waited pretty late to get it after I completed most of the game. Probably best wait till you've had your share of the game before deciding on getting it.

Started a male human striker. Even customized him (I NEVER do this, too lazy.) Of course, the beard is a must, but wish it had a full Chuck Norris option.

Also, I'm pretty sure eye shape 1 and 5 are exactly alike.


Anyways, I'll see how I like this for now, deal dlc later. I hate to even consider it on principle, because they make Bioware look downright reasonable in their pricing out content behind a paywall, but I felt that way about Mass Effect and caved in on a sale anyways.

If I had to pick only one, I'd probably go RoF, on the basis it's one self contained dlc, and GT has a bunch of them at thirty dollars total (Plus, I just like Freeza more.. I have his theme on my phone.)

I never buy dlc that costs more than +15 bucks for the whole package unless it's an expansion like Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine

I saw what looks like a Megaman X clone in friends trending.

Has randomly generated levels and coop.. Anyone know the game I'm talking about, and is it Megaman good?

20xx.

And I'm on the fence about it.. I like Megaman, but if I want randomly generated perma death frustration I can just load up Spelunky (The free one, no way I'm paying to not win a game.)

There are too many to name, but some of which, which have been lowered significantly are: GTA V, Ark: Survival Evolved, Conan Exiles, DOOM, Cities: Skylines, Dark Souls III.

All those games and more have been lowered by a huge whopping amount, so pick them up while you can, the sale ends tomorrow. HAPPY SHOPPING!

Only game I'm remotely interested in is Overwatch or Rocket League.

But I can just get TF2 for free..



That Ark Survival Evolved looks promising. But I researched it the same way I always do: By typing in "Ark Survival Evolved sucks!" in Google, and seeing what comes up.


I lose interest in more games that way..

Or you could just look up reviews.

In any case it's a very decent game.

I don't trust reviews. Too many shills, and the review sites are dependent on advertising from the very industry they're supposed to be critical of.

Case in point.


And given Gerstmann's new affiliation with his former employers, I don't doubt he's vastly underplaying this. And in all likelihood, is pulling the same tactics/pressure to protect ad revenue at all costs that Gamespot pulled on him.

One could argue that's business, and ok fine. But I'm sure not taking a "game journalist" at face value, knowing their priority is the ad revenue at the expense of full transparency/integrity.

Avoid reviewers under big-name review companies at all costs.

People who are reliable are independent game reviewers, or youtubers like Angry Joe, ProJared, etc.

The problems within the industry is the same for either big game reviewers and independent reviewers. In fact, I would believe independent game reviewers are more likely to get cash backs for good reviews because a. the make less money than companies and b. they are not beholden to any sort of standards that other editorial might be.
