Review: Dragonball Xenoverse Steam Version

A close look on Dragonball Xenoverse’s Steam port may be overdue at this point considering that the game has been released for a couple of weeks now, but we wanted to keep mum until the dust has settled because PC releases (these days) seem to be plagued with launch day hitches that make games look worse than they really are.

REVIEW: Derek Padula’s Dragon Ball Culture

I recently discovered that thedaoofdragonball.com’s Derek Padula has released a 7-volume analysis on Akira Toriyama’s beloved Dragon Ball franchise, so I had to check it out for myself. I mean, I’ve been stealing the guy’s content for years now and posting it on Toonbarn as news. I figured the content on the book is going to last me a while.

Gamestop to Offer Collectible Metal Case Pre-Order Bonus for Dragonball Xenoverse

Dragonball Xenoverse is already a bona fide pre-order in our household, mainly because we’re interested in how good of a PC port it’s going to be (it’s going to come out for the PS3, PS4, X360, Xbox one, and Steam on February 5), but those of you who aren’t emotionally invested on the PC platform, there’s still a good reason to pre-order: Bandai Namco has a Gamestop-exclusive ...
