As the deadline for release creeps up on us, we're getting a lot more images to check. I hope to use this entry to compile all these together. Obviously, they're all kept after the break. They're rather large in their real forms, so click them to get the full images if you can't quite see. Overall and Misc.
Last time, I wrote a little something going over the various styles & characters for the Dragon Ball Z CCG. That was made to help people figure out how they like to play and pinpoint the best way to get into that. It was fun to write, but I really don't feel like it helped much more than my ego. This post is for all those right at the very bottom entry level of the game who haven't even played the game yet. Maybe you haven't even purchased cards and are curious what it's all about. Maybe you're confused with the rule book. Whatever it is, I'm here to get you started.
Dragon Ball Z is back! Remember how awesome that was? It's finally back in real card form! The community for this game was so strong, Panini America decided to bring it back as an actual product, yet still compatible with the old game. If you want to work the new cards in with the old stuff, the rules are basically the same as they always were. As a fresh product, this game was definitely designed very well. It plays mostly like the old game we always knew, with a few exceptions. I like the idea of starting fresh, knowing the mistakes of the past so that hopefully they won't be repeated. With any luck, this game will come to be an even better thing that its predecessor. I'm totally not doing it because I had to sell all my old cards to fix my vehicle at one point. That really helped make the decision, but I love the ground floor of anything.
When Super Street Fighter 4 was released, I committed myself to getting Zangief's new Siberian Blizzard down enough that I could use it consistently when I needed it, and only then would I decide whether it was worthwhile. It turns out that was time well-spent, as I swear by it in over half the matchups. Of course, I've had one heck of a journey identifying where it's appropriate and where it's not. Believe me, it was a journey full of surprises. UPDATED! Arcade Edition details follow the other general uses. Also added Juri... I don't know how I missed her the first time.
