    also yes, Fat Buu was hilarious!
    Yeah, in japanese version it's Muten Roshi. I've watched only the japanese version with english subs.

    And as I was writing that I don't know who Karin is it hit me ........ Karin Tower! The man-cat hermit called Karin on top of the Karin Tower!

    Something funny I came across whilst browsing youtube (describing Majin Buu's transformations):

    When anorexic people eat fat people, they become muscular people, and when those muscular people un-eat the fat people they become even more muscular people before becoming children. protercool

    With the Kinect, they don't even show any other fight then with Frieza. I wonder if he is the only available person to even fight lol.

    Kinect games are sooo bad. Motion senors with games just don't work out well for the most part. For concepts like a DBZ fighting game the technology just isn't there yet to make it feel realistic and fun. With a controller in a fighting game, when your character gets hit, you feel it with the rumble and it's like you got hit almost because you see your character feel the consequences immediately and they were the result of your bad controls. But with the Kinect there is just some disconnect between you and the character your playing I find, in any game. The tech just isn't out their yet to make it flow and feel right.

    I feel like I'm some random dude doing motion stuff on the Kinect and the game happens in the meantime. I don't actually feel immersed into the game and that I'm one with whoever I'm playing. My bro owns a Kinect so I've messed around with it on a few occasions. The only game I actually like it for is ME3, because it's just voice commands for your squad so it actually works for the immersion factor. It's actually really good for fitness games too I should mention. That's because I actually feel my body crumbling because some of it can be pretty intense lol.

    The Kinect game looks horrible yes, but I like the potential that systems like this have, especially with franchises such as Dragonball. Looking to the future, if they improve on the movement sensor technology and (especially) somehow include the advent of the Google Glasses, I might not end up dying a fat slob. Also, another thing about the future (but probably won't happen) just imagine if a game like this accidentally unlocked some human control of "Ki". How awesome and deadly and government controlled would that be?! Fuck yea!

    I did the same thing last week and foolishly thought I still had the skills I used to and set it to hard. Raditz and then Nappa were destroying me lol. Not an easy game by any means.

    Fair trade imo. Kamehameha waves are way more fun anyway.

    Hold up an electronic store for a new TV once you've mastered the Kamehameha wave.

    "Give me a new TV, or I'll blow you out of the atmosphere! KA... ME..."
    "What the hell? What's the glow in your hands?"
    "HA... ME..."
    "Let me talk to the manager."

    Here's something I've pondered maybe some people can answer.

    What on Earth makes the Z fighters and the villains there so special? What I mean by this is that the fighters trained on Earth are capable of hiding their true power levels and raising them at will when the need arises. This is something everyone on Earth takes for granted that we do not even notice in Dragonball up until the arrival of Raditz in DBZ. Vegeta and Nappa made it much more clear though, as did Frieza and the Ginyu force. Which was a force of the strongest fighters in the known galaxy. None of them had the power except Ginyu, but we don't even know Ginyu's original species for sure.

    After going through an absolute war on Earth, Vegeta then gains this ability and is the only villain who does not have the ability at first who does. Is it because he was battling on Earth? Or was it because he is a cunning warrior and learned it from the fighters? Or was it both? Cell and Buu and the androids were created or were on Earth for a very long period of time and had that ability from the beginning anyway. The other villains of the galaxy do not have this power and Captain Ginyu refers to it as a "rare and coveted power" during the Namek saga.

    Then there are the Nameks, the only other race of people we see with this power.

    So I ask again, what about Earth allows the fighters to have this power? Is it earth itself? Or something else influencing it. Did Kami maybe(A Namek) hand down his techniques to various masters on Earth when he became Guardian, and over the years it has spread everywhere. Is that why the people on Earth have this power, because it all stems back to Earth learning it from the Namekians?

    Anyone got any answers? I haven't watched dragonball in years or all of DB:GT so I maybe missing something.

    It's nothing special about Earth. Vegeta likely picked up the technique just because he's a brilliant warrior and martial artist.

    I think it mainly comes down to a difference in philosophy. To beings like the Ginyu Force, energy manipulation is just about killing. It's also not something they learn. It's instinctual for them. Even for Saiyans, energy manipulation is taught and learned, not inherited like it is for many powerful aliens.

    The reason the Z warriors can all sense and raise/lower energy is because they're all students of Master Roshi or Master Shen in the case of Tien and Chiaotzu. Those techniques were originally invented by their master, Mutaito. Mutaito's style wasn't just about brute force, and using energy like a cudgel. He invented many ki based techniques that had uses other than just killing, such as the Evil Containment Wave.

    The only one that's not indirectly a student of Mutaito is Piccolo, and well, he's a Namekian.
    If Goku's power level increases at the same rate till the end of DBGT as it does till the end of the Frieza saga, as a SS4 Goku would have a PL of roughly 939 Quinoctogintillion. For reference that is a 260 digit number. A PL of 14,600 is required to destroy an earth sized planet. There are about 2 nonillion earths worth of mass in the universe. That means SS4 Goku can destroy the universe about 32 Octosexagintillion times over. There's a reason they made Goku a god at the end of GT.

    A Kinect is nowhere near enough for a DBZ game. They need something to tell how loud and long you're screaming for when you're powering up.

    Was afraid of that. I couldn't crop it to the allowed size and still have the same effect of the image. Guess I'll use this one.

    Just a minor correction, but it seems that sensing Ki wasn't passed down from Mutaito. Goku was first able to sense King Piccolo after drinking the Divine Water in Korin's tower, and was taught to sense other's while training on Kami's lookout. The other humans weren't shown as able to sense Ki until after their training on the lookout.

    Frieza and Goku in an intense stare down as the planet explodes around them.

    King Kai rings in. "Goku! How man Super Saiyans does it take to screw in a light bulb?"
    Goku: "Ha, How many?"
    King Kai: "Theres no telling. But it only takes one to beat Frieza!"
    Goku:
    Frieza: "What's he smiling about?!!"

    I love King Kai lol.

    O, and thanks for answering my question.

    Ill be taking up 2 things in this post:
    1) Why energy blasts dont finish off the earth (or another planet) on impact!
    So, the reason for this is pretty much how it is made up, the size of the attack don't really matter, but its the function of the impact.
    The energy blasts are all made to have a small focused blast that deals damage, what would be the point of a huge explosion where 1% would hit the opponent, maybe tickling him, while completely destroying your surroundings?
    They simply need to not waste energy, so they make it so the explosion itself aint really big, tough extremely strong. This means that it will simply make a huge hole in the ground due to the power unleashed on impact, but since the explosion itself isnt big it will not make an extremely big hole. They would all be able to destroy the earth, but what would they benefit from that, the ones who did benefit actually attempted to (cell) or did it (buu and frieza).

    Now, second I will take up is Frieza's race, simply go trough what we know and what we think we know.
    First of all, assumed name is Frost Demons.
    Their Powers:
    1) No need for breath
    2) Can live even with their body as good as destroyed
    3) Wont die of "blood" loss
    4) Posesses multiple transformations
    - Higher forms can be attained trough training, and a high power level is not required to achieve next form (cooler was beaten by frieza untill he reached his next form).
    5) All seem to have had a high power level
    6) They have been driving the Planet Trade Organization probably for houndred, if not thousands of years.
    7) Only males have been seen.

    What this can mean:
    Likely, they are a demon race (which is spectaculated about before due to the name Frost Demons). They could be a race which busted out of the demon world many thousand years ago, and quickly found themselves to be the strongest in the universe at that time, so with no real challenge they started getting their own planets and live as wealthy as possible. It may also just be that they personally love the feeling of dominance (which they get by taking over planets).

    The thing about Frieza talking in native language, do we have any proof of that not simply being demon language? His native language might also be demon language, and its also only just in a translate.

    Also, when u think off it, Frieza is the only one which is there naturally and got such kind of powers (breathing in space, able to survive horrific events, huge changes to his looks if you don't count GT).

    Cell changed his look, but he were simply a biological experiment, and made by Dr. Gero, Buu was made from Magic. It wouldnt be really weird to me if Frieza is a demon.
