Dragon Ball FighterZ gets Broly and Bardock DLC today

@Xeall Stick with Super, the final 10 episodes are some of the best animated, best storyboarded and best built up pay offs I've experienced in any television!

A year ago I couldn't care less about Dragon Ball. I remember watching the MS E3 conference when this was announced and laughing at how much they built up to it (but also thinking the animation looked great).

Now I've put 100 hours into the game and watched all of DBZ and Super -- the latter was excellent by the way. Easily one of the best experiences I've ever had with a fighting game.

Ubisoft safe from hostile Vivendi takeover

However I feel about Ubisoft's products, services and policies (not always a fan) I still can't help but admire how they went about fending this off. Still have their E3 2016 conference final moments burned into my mind for the sheer force of defiant will.

Eurogamer's parent company Gamer Network has been bought by PAX operator ReedPOP

Congratulations to all involved in this deal, it seems at first glance to be good for all parties.

I do have some trepidation on your site redesign. I'd say 50% of the reason I like EG so much is the site design (the other 50% being quality content).

I would go so far as to say that, Polygon aside, I genuinely dislike every other games website design -- especially those that were redesigned with what is perceived to be "modern" aspects to them.

EG is the only one that has that 'Thursday: here are all the stories that came out today in chronological order, that you can see at a glance. Also, these are the highlights'

I'm not going to pre-judge it though, I look forward to seeing it!

Overwatch the game versus Overwatch the esport

xRiska

2 months ago

"London Spitfire have faced accusations of "snapping up" the best Korean players at the expense of local talent, while prominent European players were bought up by the Americans."

I mean, if by accusations you mean they literally came out and said that's what they did then sure. Local talent wasn't up to the standard they needed to win the league -- the few who are were already "snapped up" by other teams and couldn't get out of their contracts.

If the ultimate plan is to try and get local talent to League level, it feels a bit harsh to criticise Cloud9 for wanting to win in the mean time.

@scuffpuppies I was reading an explanation why a few days ago.

I'll try and be brief: the owners want to win, and they want to win in season 1. So they went out and hired the best players they could, regardless of nationality. They likened it to Chelsea winning the champions league without a single British player.

The ultimate goal is to have as many british players as possible, but right now there are only 2 brits in the whole league. So they are going to be running a b-league and holding trials in britain to try and get people to league level. Seemed fairly reasonable

@imt558 Dude, literally just asking a question. I have a Pro and will be buying D2 on PC so the answer makes no difference to me. Chill out.

@FASELI it seems a shame to limit it, if that's the case. Would be a real selling point for the One X if it was offering either 4k performance or 1080/60fps. I get that the install base would be an issue, though.

Would I be correct in that even if the Xbox One X can achieve 60fps they would still lock it to 30 for PvP purposes? Or will the Xbox One X have its own server shard seperate to the Xbox One?

I wouldn't feel embarressed Oli, I believe many people - myself included - felt the same way you did.

They've been coning people into getting insurance they don't need for years too.
