Why Dragon Ball Minus is a terrible story

Posted on May 19, 2017 at 12:50 AM Comments comments (0)

Dragon Ball Minus is mainly looked down upon because of how it contradicts the already established history of a character - Goku's father. What really makes Dragon Ball Minus such a disgrace in my eyes, is because of this particular exchange from the Saiyan Arc:-


Before they start fighting, Vegeta tries to rattle Goku by comparing their statuses in Saiyan society, saying that Goku should feel privileged to fight an elite - that the whole reason Goku was sent to Earth in the first place, is because Saiyans are tested for combat aptitude at birth and those with no promise are sent to subjugate weak planets like Earth.

However, Goku is unfazed by this insult. In fact, he says he's glad to have been considered trash, because that was what had allowed him to escape those very limitations society had placed upon him. It taught him that hard work is more important than social status, or faith placed on him while he's still an infant.


Goku's journey throughout the Saiyan arc is finding out who he is - and it's nothing good. His native species are terrible people. His brother kidnaps his son, his other remaining kinsmen kill his friends. He has saved the world, when he was actually sent there to destroy it, and it was only through a lucky chance that that wasn't what ended up happening.


However, that's exactly who Goku is - he's one of them. Except that he's not. Even as far back as his birth, his people rejected him; labelled him as nearly worthless and shipped him off to do the only thing they judged him capable of doing and that's the beautiful irony of it all.

If they hadn't judged him to be inferior, he probably would have met the same fate as the rest of them and died. He certainly wouldn't have saved Earth and proven himself to be worthy to have trained under gods (Kami, Kaioh).


Only because his fellow Saiyans concluded he had no potential, did he manage to achieve it and now he is face to face with the personification of that bigotry (Vegeta) and he's about to show him what a low born cast-off can do and just how wrong they were about him. That, despite their aspersions on him, he can be better than all of them.


Unless, of course you believe Dragon Ball Minus, where his parents love him so much, they send him to Earth to thrive, which is exactly what he ends up doing anyway. YAWN!

Fighter Factory Ultimate Tutorial: .(O).

Posted on March 6, 2010 at 6:51 AM Comments comments (0)

Hello there,


As some people know (some don't), , .(O). with{_Carnificina_}, one of the main beta testers & mentor of FighterFactory (with the help of some old good fellas like Tony3RD, BIA andDr. H), that was greatly done by VirtualTek, a very skilled programmer.Thanx to Fighter Factory, we could land a mark into Mugen's historywith the most complete, easier and better Mugen ever done.


Thenewcomers could never face this, but some old creators like me had started when you have to use MCM + Airedit + SounDzGood + notepad to make a character, back to a time when we didnt even see a CPS2 emulated and art money wasn't in the we did the characters the hardcore way. :wink:


MEE was a good tool, but have someproblems, as the ZCharCad - and old tool - have too. But thanx toVirtualTek, this is history.



VT(and us) are working on a newer version called Fighter Factory Ultimate.You may ask why..because the previous version wasn't perfect yet. VThad decided to remake it FROM THE SCRATCH...I was shocked when he saidthat, but he was right.

The new version, private to just MGBRmembers who had Creator status, is comming nicelly, with some reallywonderful new features. So I've decided to share this development withyou all, so we can have a even better tool.

BUT, I would like toreceive SERIOUS comments. Noob comments, or weird ones, will be justignored. This is why we had the development process locked to MGBRcreators (even PDM aren't allowed there)and now I'm posting here, justthe big guys are there. So, this is more serious than some people canimagine...we are here to make a revolution again, and we want your helptoo.


Enough talk, lets start!  Enjoying the show!

WHat is new? (some of the images are from a early beta)

- New interface (beta), with easier look, more room to work.

- New code highlight (with underlines), state numbers with name (as youcan see on the left), chained states (you can jump to any trigger thatis chained inside a statedef), CNS files organized into a dropdown menu(not on tabs anymore):

Click for bigger view.

You can use the old style:

- Live, on-the-fly palete insert/change in images! You choose a newpalete, with colors in different positions and you can choose to keepthe previous order (like the old FF do) or the ADAPT THE IMAGE TO THENEW PALETE. This means that you DON'T NEED TO EXPORT, APPLY PALETE andIMPORT BACK...its on real time

Old version:
