    Well this sucks. I would love to pick up the LE especially with the artbook and soundtrack. Yup this along with the lack of a Tales of Vesperia PS3 announcement (yet) is proof that Namco Bandai America sucks harder then a Orek vaccume, or blows like El Nino I can pick which corny wind inspired joke I prefer. Still with each passing day I hate you a little more Namco, could you pass that on Spencer? I try to tell them with my emails but all I get is canned responces.

    Will Raging Blast have dual audio track like Infinite World? I’m a little disappointed w/ some changing of seiyuu in DB Kai now, most of the original cast reprise the roles of the main characters, but for the less major villains, like Nappa, Zarbon, Ginyu, etc are replaced w/ new voices.. and Ginyu’s VA, Hori Hideyuki (Ikki of Saint Seiya, Ryu Hayabusa of Ninja Gaiden Sigma) is still actively working… I remember he was in Burst Limit too. It’s interesting they picked Konishi Katsuyuki (Kamina from Gurren Lagaan) to voice Captain Ginyu, since he was the new Ikki in the Hades OVA, guess he’s like a successor to Hori Hideyuki… he sounds cool but he could be so goofy at times…

    I won’t miss the LE since this I would wait a little bit for a price drop, Burst Limit was not worth $60…

    • I really hope Raging Blast has at last the Japanese voices if not dual audio. Burst Limit was a huge throwback for me. I also didn’t feel it was worth $60. The rental pleased me enough until it dropped in price. This new turn for the series has really been taking me back to my younger days!

        The demo’s up on both PS3/360 now, doesn’t seem to have dual audio, maybe the full game would if it follows Burst Limit and Infinite World. The repetitive stock animation for all the characters was the most annoying thing in Burst Limit, since everyone had the same movement, just felt very lazy for the first next gen DB game. They even made a couple of stupid mistakes, like after Vegeta destroyed his scouter by stepping on it, he’s wearing it in the next shot, and some other stuffs I forgot that are embarrassing.. Raging Blast seems fun, but a price drop should be very quick for these “Madden” DB games now, just too saturated.

        • Yeah, they really did have a “lazy” atmosphere going on with all those animations being the same. What I did enjoy was the fact that from Tenkaichi to now they have been incorporating deep (read: actual!) fighting game systems into these games instead of some random button mash fest that is only fun for a few moments. Granted it’s not Guilty Gear depth, for an anime fighting game it has taken leaps and bounds over some of the other stuff I’ve seen under the guise of “fighting game.” I’ll check out the demo this weekend if I get a chance!

    As good as this game looks I would’ve loved to see a direct sequel for Burst Limit with more characters. It could’ve been awesome! Awesome I Tell you! : (

    Seems Like Namco Bandai America doesn’t like Sony much. Lack of Limited Editions for a PS3 game and no release of a PS2 game in the US(Naruto Shipudden:Ultimate Ninja 5) they seem to be dropping the ball.
    But It might not be there fault. Maybe There’s a shake up or downsizing or something preventing that business from making and following through on sound decisions.
    Or I could be completly delusional trying to comfort myself from thinking my favorite publishers are starting to transform into the old EA or the new ACTIVISION.

    There is a demo for this on the PSN finally… I have to say I have been blown away at how far the DB games have gone downhill. Originally, the games sucked. Then, they got a lot better… And now, they have fallen once again.

    Controls = Terrible
    Music = Terrible
    Fun factor = Terrible
    Even the graphics (THIS IS AN HD SYSTEM) = Terrible

    This was only a demo, 3 characters playable and I never want to play it again. I know, it was just a demo, but doesn’t a demo make you want to get the game? Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 demo made me leave my house right after the demo ended to buy the game.

    The Bayonetta demo made it a must-buy for me on day one…

    All I’m saying is that games have come a long way, and this just can’t compare. I’d rather play Budokai 3 or Infinite World. Actually, I’d rather play Dissidia. It’s an ‘arena’ type fighter, I have over 200 hours on it and I have not been bored once.
