Litten is a favorite?! I hate that darn thing! People complain about ugly pokemon being unoriginal, but holy CRAP It's just a black cat! There's no creativity in that! Vinilluxe was interesting in that it had a unique design, it made itself distinct among the other pocket monsters, just as every one should.

Rowlet- A grass-Flying owl? That's interesting, It possesses attributes that make it clearly distinct from noctowl.

Popplio - A sea Lion? That's something the franchise has never seen! I look forward to IT'S evoltuions.

But Litten..? It's just a stupid CAT! Just take a black cat at the pet store, and add some red rings on it's legs, and BOOM! Is that original?! And guess what? They're probably gonna troll us and make it's final evolution a Pure fighting type! >:O

I digress: What makes pocket mosnters unique is that each one is original in it's own way! I don't care about garbador, because it was DESIGNED to be ugly, and it worked! the moment you see garbador, you're not gonna confuse that with ANYTHING ELSE, because it's 100% creative (Albeit a dumb idea xD)

Meowth had that money thing going on,
Liepard had an interesting deisgn
Shinx is my favorite pokemon, BECAUSE ITS FRIGGIN SHINX, by definition it's best thing.. An electric friggin Lion/Leapard hybrid?! That's friggin amazing!

But litten is just a cat with some red on it! It looked like a fan pokemon seen off of a crappy leak, but My god, It's disgusting!

" It's funny how Goku was allowed to have a body in the afterlife because he fought for other people and was selfless, but this is directly contradicted by Goku letting Frieza power to 100% because he wanted a good fight"

It's called sticking to the narrative of the story: Goku is pure of heart, yes, but He refuses to take someone down while they're power is diminished, There're several reasons as to why Goku allowed frieza to transform, such as Goku adopting the SSj legacy, and accepting his saiyan heritage, Goku is prideful, and If he was to defeat his most pwoerful enemy, he'd rather it be while they're at their best. What would be more entertaining, Watching an MMA finalist lose because he became sick? OR allowing the fighter to heal, and then have an even match?

"As for Gon, why is he so special"

He's not... HE's depicted as a naive, ignorant, and headstrong individual, who's habits ultiamtely led to his many defeats in the hunter exam (he was shot after catching the bird). Gon's Potential is a reccuring theme within the narrative for two reasons:

To keep the plot gooing (I'll get more into this in a sec)
2: And to demosntrate cahracter development; When god has a victory, it's usually due to his creativity. You were ranting on about how the fight should've allowed killing, but that wasn't the intended purpose of the fight. The point was that there are OTHER PATHS TO VICTORY, that don't end in bloodshed...

"Why did Hisoka see potential in him"

Again plot reasons, To keep the narrative going. Gon is depicted as someone who can adapt to many situations with ease, Later it's revealed that his potential makes him 1/10,000,000. Does this make him invincible? Hell to the F no, It means that he can grow stronger more quickly; He's a fighting genius. Gon's victories are EARNED, not given.

"Why can he manage his way out of every stage of the Hunter Exam"

Who, Hisoka? Because he's a Bada**.

"Why is he given special opportunities to become a hunter with Netero's test"

You really thought that they'd actually go through with that? NO! Of course not! You're insinuating that it's poor writing to introduce new conflcits in non-predictable ways, as IF the show should've started with gon not being able to find the location of the exam, and had to wait a year later, that way he wouldn't be a "garystu" whatever that is...

Episode 1: I wanna be a hunteR! :D *3 days later* Welp, I couldn't find it... Oh well maybe next year.
Episode 2: I wanna be ahunteR! *find exam*
Episode 3: I'm in the exam! :D *Gets shot* *Dies*

END

Yeah, that sounds like a fantastic story... Every aspect in a narritive has a point to it. Checkhov's Gun

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chekhov%27s_gun

"There's nothing exceptional about him"

He learns quickly... That's really it. He's not a perfect character.

"and his past yet he's so smart, strong, and able to make friends out of everyone. He's a  gary stu"

Would you rather him be bullied for his naevity? And too weak so that he couldn't even finish the writing portion of the eam?! You make it sound like Every accomplishment was the work of Dues ex Machina, which is terrible for rating stories. Should Katniss Have DIED in the hunger games too?! The characters are supposed to be interesting, not realistic!

"This may change after the Zoldyck arc, but I stopped reading it because it was boring as . "

I agree.... That arc was just BS, made it unbearable...

"30 episodes worth of manga is more than enough time I should give to a manga"

Yeah, and the first 30 pages of a book REALLY tells you how good the franchise is. And the first 30 minutes of an RPG shoudl be the greatest as well... The narrative takes time to develop, Whoa re you to criticize a work you haven't even finished?!

Now If you wanna complain about Naruto, that's a different story... Dues Ex Machina is the entire plot really xD

I still haven't finished the anime. The Chimera ant arc bored me so i stopped watching the anime. I should watch it again

Chimera Ant Bored everyone... Again, It took me 2 weeks to finish a god damn episode... Point is, after episode 119, it dramatically improves! The narration stops a few episodes after, but the emotionally gratifying conclusion to the arc makes the endeavor worth it.

Anime / So I just finished HunterxHunter...
« on: January 16, 2016, 10:53:08 PM »
Every arc (besides Zoldyck arc) was just brilliant. Each arc introduced us to an incredible cast of characters each with their own niche. What I admire most about it was the animation... I mean, I started watching it nearing the end of the Fishman-Island Arc of one piece, and I somehow marathon-d the first 30 episodes in the first night.

The Animation is incredible, the colors are vivid and inviting. They manage to encapsulate emotion/atmosphere in every scene. The way they depict these scenarios are phenomenal. After coming off one piece (I've still yet to finish the darn island because the animation is terrible/filler/etc) this show introduced me to what a quality anime is (Please for the love of god CORRECT ME IF IM WRONG), the main protagonists are likable, they each have their own personality that isn't cliche. Leoreo was someone I kept my eye on. The moment he revealed why he wanted to become a hunter, I knew that from that point onwards, each character would be developed.

The characters aren't forced on you, Gon's childish personality is conveyed brilliantly, He's not some annoying kid who wants to become a hero for the hell of it, he knows that the world will kick him while he's down. He acknowledges that this world is cruel, but still manages to find pure delight in it.

Im not gonna write an entire review on it, but If anyone's willing to give the series A try, I'd recommend it. I honestly just wanted to convey my opinion on it, but this next part will have spoilers:

*SPOILER WARNING**

Honestly I don't understand the Hype with the Yorknew city Arc. The Arc cemented Kurapika as my favorite character (as im sure everyone else would agree) but the antagonists (for the mostpart) were 1-dimensional. The shadow troupe consists of murderers... And..? They only flush out 1/4 of the darn cast! The Samurai, The string Lady, the vacuum lady...? They kill people... But what else? The samurai got angry about the murder of his friend, but outside of that he's just a jerk. The leader of the darn troupe was just as 1 dimensional as the string lady, He can steal powers, and he kills people... Now tell me, besides wanting to develop a powerful main antagonist, why is it that wanting to steal a few priceless treasures(And I use the word priceless loosley) Require the murder of 5000 cops, 3000(innocent?) civilians, and the murder of the entire Mafia..? I mean they couldn't just have snuck in and out? Their plans are clichè, and for the most part they kill because they can.

The Chimera Arc wasn't that fantanimus... The narration during episodes 100 -120, was just awful. If not for that, I would be writing this two weeks ago, but gosh why is it that every obvious attribute is conveyed? Do I need a narrator to tell me that I need to breath? no? then tell me why I must need one to convey the emotions of a character. By this i mean, The narrator's purpose was to spit on the beautiful nature of allowing the scene to convey itself. The narrator did nothing but reiterate the obvious, and he accomplished it poorly.

Another thing that bothered me about the Chimera Ant Arc were the royal guards (except Pitou?). I'll leave her out of this because She seemed to have some of her character conveyed. But Pitou and Youpi were just cliche shoenen villians. Pouf's motivation didn't even make any sense. "I must not allow the king to develop character because... He's the king?" I mean what was that?! If anything, it only made the king's development more notable. Meruem was just a brillian character, He's what made the Arc. It was he who saw the comparison about humans and Ants, about how they're the same thing, just two species willing to utilize any means for their survival. It's a shame that this was only built upon nearing the end of the Arc, but it's what drew me back in.

The Greed Island Arc was my favorite to be honest. The premise was: Go on an adventure and have fun, and It was done brilliantly! The final conflict between Gon and Gunthru was powerful, it encompassed Gon's perspective towards what it meant to be a hunter/getting stronger. He knew that his reluctance to follow the plan might engender his death, but That's what made the conflict as incredible as it was.

So tell me, What are your thoughts? What's your favorite arc?

Microsoft / Re: Halo 5! (Halo Discussion Thread)
« on: October 27, 2015, 01:27:56 AM »
My hype for Halo died ever since Halo 5 was announced only a year after Halo 4. I knew why it was happening; 343 Industries was not trying to deliver story for Bungie fans. They were trying to milk Bungie's cashcow. They don't respect their dedication to lore. Re-releasing each single game was not a tribute to Bungie. It was making money off of their work, so yeah. I don't appreciate 343 and their work.

I mean quite honestly, I think the work they've done for us was very generous Though i must acknowledge that the company is far from perfect. By keeping the franchise alive, theyve managed to add an incredible amount of lore to it. The lore now expands tp the very origin of the flood to years after the great war. But to say that theyre leeching off bungies work might be a bit of an exxaggeration. every company wants to make money, and to go about it by using the resources they were given is fair. I appreciate the fact that theyve given us the master chief collection, though i think thery way they went about it was terrible. overall, i have faith in the company, and im truly greatful to them for allowing the flame to burn a bit longer.

I havent really been on the hype train for Halo 5... But I've never seen a Halo discussion thread, or even halo being spoken of. I've been playing halo since I was 9, I started out with halo 3. But enough about that, Why not start a thread discussion the UNIVERSE of halo? I'm not really into the lore but I don't see the problem in allowing halo fans to discuss the lore, the multiplayer, forging, custom games, etc.

So who's excited for Halo five's release tomorrow..? Less than 24 hours until we can finally see the revolution 343 is bringing upon us. What are your thoughts?

Anime / Re: Wanna get shot through a canon?
« on: October 12, 2015, 08:50:15 AM »
"With all of this content added to the franchise, it's difficult to distinguish what even is canon. Is Super canon, or is Battle of Gods? Is DBO canon? If it is, then why not Xenoverse?" - Xenoverse intentionally uses non-canon elements, such as the fact that the characters created are the ones who determine the story, that demon kai god thing isn't canon, and it uses GT elements...

"If we're just counting Toriyama's involvement in something as the measure of canonicity, then why did we consider the Bardock special canon for the longest time?" - It wasn't, many fanboys such as myself still considered it to be NON-canon, it was never a debate from what I know. It was a decent anime episode though, and I still consider it to be fantastic.

"Furthermore, canon has no bearing on the actual quality of something in the series." - That's exactly the point, I didn't say filler ruins the series, It's just that the majority of filler out there is crap. Im absolutely livid that The naruto Manga is over, yet the animators have the audacity to continue producing filler for months on end. Does anyone really wanna see ROAD TO TENTEN?!?! REALLY?!! NO!! Just.. No..! Anyways, I created this thread to convey my thoughts of how filler is ran. The quality of filler is low, and it's rare that the animators of a series can hold a candle to the creative genius that is the author.

Anime / Wanna get shot through a canon?
« on: September 07, 2015, 11:08:05 PM »
Yeah, I know my puns suck. But I've just realized that these forums are a… a sorta way to express to you my thoughts and ideas about not just dragon ball, but anime in general. Here's another concept that's usually the center of debate as well as the deviation between a fan of the series, and just a normal… viewer.

Is. It. Canon. - Canonocity, Something that's been discussed throughout many a shoenen anime such as bleach/One Piece/Dragon Ball/ And Friggin Naruto… Ill get to that one later. Whether something is canon or not and the ability to accept/care about it differentiates fans and viewers alike, I've made this distinction, because when I'm a fan of something, I want to make such a form of media perfect in my mind, where as In other shows that I watch casually, I'll let it slide. Some people believe that canonicity determines the value of the plot and a series as a whole, while others may find certain forms of filler and such a great addition to the Universe itself. Now Let me state my point of view:

Why I care If something's canon - Yes it's true, for many anime of which I am an avid fan, I feel betrayed once I learn something isn't canon. There are multiple reasons as to why I've deviated from loving anime in it's whole and only caring about the canon aspect; There are even occasions in which I don't look ahead to avoid the filler, but I realize that what Im watching is filler has a different aspect… And this is My first argument -

       -Quality: There comes a time in which I'm watching a series and I notice that something's… off, this something being a major drop in quality. An example of this would be during one of the timeskips in Dragonball. It was soon after the Red Ribbon Army had fallen, it was the filler arc where  Roshi told boku to stop using nimbus, and explore/train on his own. During these next few episodes, I had realized that the plots have an astonishing drop in quality; For example there was that episode where Goku got sick and still managed to win some fight using a technique of some sort. The episode, put simply, was Goku, the "underdog" of the episode won against all odds. -This, is something that I feel as though the author of a manga would do. This is another point:

       -The Vision of The Creator: Manga Creators… Are gifted individuals, they not only tend to be fantastic artists, but they share this passion;gift for creativity in one aspect: Story. Manga creators are fantastic story tellers… they manage to distort and alter the ideas of the masses, and morph them into these astounding tales that manage to keep the masses wanting more. Attack on Titan is my favorite example of this: Who would have the talent and creativity to create such an abstract and perfectly unique universe in which monsters reign over the Earth. Questions arise from this: the origin of the Titans? What happened to humanity when they arose? When Will I catch up on the series? Only the creator knows the answers to these conundrums, and will persist in developing such mysteries that keep you, the viewers, involved/wanting more. While I could go on for quite awhile conversing about this, I'd like to clarify the main point of this topic

Why Filler Upsets me- Originally, I had made the point on how some viewers appreciate filler as a fantastic addiction the the universe itself, allowing the anime to deviate from the original in such ways that gives the characters more… value. some filler might go into detail about the pasts of these individuals, while others are solely to stall for time. But that's just it. It Deviates from the original. Now again, you may ask, "Why is this a problem? Why does it bother you that Tenten is now roaming around in the dream world, and discovering something about herself that she never knew was there before? (or something, I aint watching it)" It's because… This deviation renders the form of media I'm watching…. Different. This TenTen isn't TenTen, its merely some awkward girl who looks exactly like TenTen, but isn't… Filler bothers me because it gives me attributes of characters that I can't stand don't exist in the original, because It renders that character as someone else.

      I would've loved for boku to be that underdog at that competition, but I can't stand the fact that he's not. I like Goku, not the character whom Goku is not. This is why I don't like GT, (Well this, and an abundance of other reasons) There are so many abstract character traits that are so… out of character. Goku never went to hell and fought "some greased up germans who wanted to wrestle him". this adds a false element to the character. It adds character development and than strips it away. This is why filler upsets me - Why Add Character Development, If You're Only Going to Through It Away? Allow me to confess; There are many filler elements that I Like. I admire the character progression that it adds… But that's just it.m It pains me that you would create this new obstacle that our protagonist may overcome, If it means nothing. No one is going to remember it, it was just a dream. It adds nothing to the series, because it's not part of the series. This is also why I classify Dragon Ball super (so far) as non-canon. It deviates from Battle of Gods i.e.: the source material. So why bother watching these adventures if they add nothing to the original? It truly is painful to see these elements added to our characters, only to have them stripped later on.

One last clarification: Many filler episodes add detrimental elements to characters, but that's a discussion for another day. So that's just my point of view. I want to see how others feel about the subject of canonicity. Do you appreciate filler for adding on to the universe, or do you share my opinion?

Excellent reply… I might've gone off on a bit of a tangent when I said that algebra thing, but I still believe that Kids can learn at a much faster pace, This is coming from a student who went to a private school for grades 1-4, in which the average student was 1-2 grades above public education. In 3rd grade, one of my peers was doing 6th grade level work.

Regarding the Marvel/DC Thing, I'm not really a fan of it… So I wouldn't know. I made that comparison between the original teen titans and TTG to demonstrate that kids can see certain mature aspects. You made good points about how kids do tend to take things at face value, for the most part I cannot argue with that. But In relation to sympathy/empathy… Well, I don't know how to respond to that. I mean, there are certain factors that take place in that, such as the environment in which the kids was raised in, how other kids treat him, how adults trade him, etc. I was empathetic towards my friends, and I wanted to protect them in any way I could. I had few "enemies", for the most part, it was just me getting into some sort of argument, than later apologizing for it. I was an empathetic kids if I were to say so, but there are certain factors that are the reason for that as well.

From what I can see, Empathy is a rare trait among the masses; There comes a time in most adolescent lives, from what I've seen, where they believe that empathy and showing kindness towards others is… Petulant/childish. As a student who just entered his Junior year, needless profanity and other apathetic behaviors still take place on a daily basis.

Dragonball General Discussion / Re: You didn't say please..!
« on: September 05, 2015, 04:11:18 PM »
       Alrighty than, I've received some great/detailed replies, and I'd just like to clarify my viewpoint a bit more. First; I cannot stand the notion that kids don't have the "attention" span to watch television shows with continuity. Kids, and let me emphasize this because this was the point I was trying to make, Are not imbeciles. When my group of friends in 1st grade saw Avatar the Last Airbender, We knew what to expect. We knew that there was going to be an epic journey that may end when We're much much older. From that very first episode, me and my friends started theorizing what could happen, who the fire lord was, was Zuko going to die, etc. We were 7. And yes, though we didn't have what I guess could be considered the mentality to see the more mature and adult content, we didn't watch it because it was flashy-ohhh-space-fire-lazers. We watched it because it was a journey- we knew what tragedies could take place, we expected the show to take a much darker tone. Let me remind you once more, We were merely seven years of age.

       Kids have the capability and the mentality to understand the overall theme of things. Pokemon was another major part of my childhood- Life. I;m still an avid pokemon fan, and just recently I started completing the pokedex. But anyways, It bothers me when kids are treated like stereotypical kids; If you treat a kid like an imbecile, than they will be slow to learn, and their understanding of concepts will suffer. My friend's brother just turned 7. He's played through and completed within a few play-throughs, the five nights at freddys trilogy. Expect to see him on youtube very soon. When He was 5, he beat me at Halo reach..! And if you dare think even for a second that he's gifted, that's not necessarily the case; His brother, 13 at the time, taught him how to play halo. He wanted his brother to experience the world of gaming, awesome sic-fi shows like doctor who/Fireflies.

       He was treated like someone my brothers age. And the result? He understands the maturity and the higher concepts/themes of this type of media. When placed in front of Avatar the Last airbender, He loves it. When Placed in front of Teen Titans Go, He quite literally said that it was the worst thing ever. Why..? Because He's seen The higher more mature themes of DC/Marvel. He reads the comics etc. The point is that; He was a child who was treated like an adolescent. Kids are not stupid; they can lear. KIDS ARE NOT STUPID. THEY CAN LEARN. The stereotype that kids cannot understand higher themes stems from the fact that we never show them/convey to them what these themes are, and they don't learn until society deems them worthy of teaching. You can teach a toddler algebra if you put the time into it. I cannot stand to see this stereotype go on any farther, Kids are intelligent. But they are ignorant, it is up to us to teach them. Now onto the Dragonball discussion-

1: the point I wanted to convey, but chose not to, is that the voices are emotionless. Goku sounds the same in each episode. His voice is this monotone, droid voice that rarely shows emotion. In kai, this is changed dramatically; Each expression he gives is conveyed passion..! Every line has me shaking, from his first encounter with Vegeta, to his final battle with frieze. Now later on in the animation dub, this changes as the actors get used to doing their jobs. As I said, The buu saga in funimation is better than the Kai rendition. It was perfect IMO.

2: To those who complain about gohan's annoying voice, I just don't understand. You realize that when he fought cell he was literally nine years old right..? In the US version, he was 11, so that may cause confusion for some… I guess… But anyways, Im tired of so called "Squeekers" being hated for the pitch of their voice. I was a squeakier up until last year, when I was 15. I was constantly faced with pointless derision, and hatred. Such a flawed point of view could not be taken seriously. Kai, being my first dub, the voice of gohan made sense. He was 4 years old, not a kid who's throat sounds like it was torn out. He's a young male, who's voice matches his perfectly. If anything, I don't think that voice fits for Luffy in the funimation dub, but that's a story for another day. I don't see the correlation between a young adolescents voice, and their maturity. But anyways, in relation to Gohan: His voice isn't annoying, its literally a perfect fit.

3: The reason I don't like the Bruce Falconeer dub is because I feel that for the most part, the music doesn't fit AT ALL. I cannot deny that there are some amazing soundtracks in there, but I feel as though it makes the show feel more American-ized. I heard a youtube commenter saying that DBZ sounded like a Space-opera in the original japanese dub. Thats what DBZ is. It's a space opera. It's supposed to be dramatic and suspenseful. It's not this super hero show; ,"OH LOOK GOKUS HERE, WERE SAVED" No. Goku is just the strongest of the group because of his training. He's not un-stoppable, and this has been shown on a multitude of occasions. And I realize that this view may stem from the fact that I had no idea what bruce falconer music was until about three years ago, seeing as I had always watched DBZ with the original soundtrack, but please have some respect for others opinions. There's no need to incite rage and actively provoke others who don't agree with you. Unless you have a valid argument/point, Im not going to respond to anyone who's only here to insult the opinions of others or my own.

« on: September 04, 2015, 05:58:38 PM »


This... Is just one of the many things wrong with the funimation dub... It's time that I convey you you, my fellow forum-goers, that the "remastered" funimation dub is just... Abysmal... Now before I go on about my rant, let me at least say that after season 3/4, the show improved dramatically. I can watch the gohan vs cell over and over again for hours... Anyways Allow me to elucidate:

I believe the target audiences of many tv shows today are treated like they have no common sense- Like they have no thought of their own. I once once an avid cartoon lover, owning the sets of many a classic nickelodeon dvds and ect. Nowadays, they promote shows that lack any quality to begin with, shows like Sanjay and Craig that promot toilet humor to the kids of this generation. There was once a time where I went on that channel and didn't see "Fart in a jar" Or whatever crap they now use to promot their shows because they assume kids think its funny. When I was young, toilet humor was shamed, not just by my family but by my fellow classmates as well. We were in second grade, young 7 year olds mind you. Such humor was rarely used, and when it was it was looked down upon. Now regarding dragonball Z, I cannot stand the atrocious Dub that adds so many... inconsistencies...! When watching the dub, the actors have no emotions, they add pointless one liners/jokes/puns that kill the moment and ruin the suspense. One line for example, is during the fight with cell (I couldn't find a clip for it) Where cell charges up, and krillin states, "Well, it looks like cell is back to his old evil self"...Why..? I couldn't even conceive how anyone could come up with that line? he also mentioned, after the clash with gohan and cells FIRST kamehameha (when cell threatens to destroy the planet)," Who would've thought that getting rid of cell would be such... a blast... hehehe". Again, another line so... out of place. It ruins the image the dragonball had represented. Numerous lines such as: You didn't say please (vs frieza) Ride em' cowboy (krillin getting impaled)... It's just so degrading. Now you may think. "Well the target audience are young adolecents/pre teens." Even back than I thought it was out of place. Look, just because the demographic is young doesn't mean they should degrade such an anime. I state this, because this problem persists in todays televison. Dragon Ball Z Kai is, and will remain my favorite form of DBZ. No Awful out of place Bruce falconeer track, the dub is not only consistent with the manga, but it's mature, no darn one liners. Comparison:

Even commercials nowadays prey on the weak minds of individuals, for example the abysmal Credit Karma Commercials I see nowadays, the crud they continues to air on Nickelodeon, etc. Can you really allow our children to watch such... degrading media? Kids aren't fools. They understood full well the difference between spongebob in 2001 and spongebob in 2006. They knew it wasn't funny, or entertaining. Many of my friends had tried to convince me of that, But I dreamt of the return of some quality shows. Television will not see much improvement anytime soon. But there are of course quality cartoons such as Adventure time (kind of. some episodes are just... meh) Steven Universe, Amazing world of gumball(though the newer episodes don't retain the original season's charm), Gravity falls and more.  I just want your opinion/perspectives on this situation, and your opinion on the original funimation Dub for dbz,

Gameplay Discussion / Re: How fast is leveling, what is it like.

I never really found quests to be that useful… My first play through, I just grinder from level to level, with a few quests here and there. Quests were scarce, and there wasn't really much to do. Once I hit level 30, it got even more dull so I quit dbo for the time being. The level UP 33! Item is what got me back into the game. I was a heavy casher, spending upwards of 10 dollars a week on this game, so I kept getting those level up 33 items so i could skip the grind from 21-30. Anyways, I didn't play that often to begin with anyways, I always played solo, so if I got into trouble, i had to rely on BRUTE strength to take care of things. But now that I'm older and seem to have a, what I like to call, "More developed attention span" Im able to quest and not get bored within 5 minutes. To be quite honest, once you hit level 38, leveling is easy. I got from level 38 to 45 within a couple of hours. But I never actually got past that… I was an on and off player who didn't really know how to level up. I was more focuses on finding the dragon balls that will be useless until i level up another 7 times. I never made it to 50...

I COULD NEVER BEAT EMM!!!!!

I always got to the part where you had to destory the brain, but when I was a kid, my aiming was baaaaddddd. I tried to beat him ten times the same night, and every shot (I usually got in 5-10 shots before I died) missed... Except for one. I just gave up. Ugghh, that game was my life! Every day I would come home and plug in my gamecube just to gaze upon the legendary main menu. And than Atlantis Squarepantis came out for the wii (T___T)
