New charge move for Yuri and King. Hold the button to charge the move until it becomes a stronger version (Koohken into haoh shoukouken - no super flash), it's automatically the charged version in awakening.

lol wtf
I'll take that King. Don't care about Yuri.
XIII outfits I assume?
Can't even remember how they looked in XIII but King has the white shirt and Yuri has those gloves ? Which game are those from ? (edit - yep, those both match their XIII version) Also I don't remember their XIII version being datamined even though everyone from XIII and XIV were datamined a long ass time ago.

Also please don't give King Illusion Dance... Just stick with Silent Flash and the giant Venom blast and / or, almost certainly, that Trap Kick HSDM from 02UM. Secret Mirage.

Ape Bardock just chilling on a tower doing fucking nothing for several whole ass panels lol
maybe he was thinking about the destruction that was happening to the people, and Toriyama didn't want to draw about it but the animeted serie can do it
(It's Toyotaro, not Toriyama)
Nah, he was looking around, then he found someone running toward that broken building. Probably went there thinking he would round up anyone trying to escape, like he's today's lookout or tower guard, but he found a mother and child instead and changed his mind.
Bardock isn't suddenly a good guy just because he saved three people among however many races he's genocided at this point.
I'm just waiting to see him actually fight, if they can make him as brutal and tactical as the old movie.

I missed him before but we see kid Raditz playing with other kids outside for one panel when Bardock is talking with Gine. Father and son clearly don't care about each other.

Few things from this month's chapter...
The manga is mixing a few different designs of Saiyan armor that were previously assumed to just be either evolving over different time periods or just retconned with new designs for the hell of it (Bardock's armor)
Ape Bardock just chilling on a tower doing fucking nothing for several whole ass panels lol
The old Namekian hid from Granolah the fact that he (the kid) is responsible for his mom's death
He didn't use the Dragon Balls, not even to revive the mom - maybe kid Granolah died and the Namekian chose to revive him, and then couldn't help anyone else because as they've been hinting multiple times, he's weaker, so his dragon balls are weak ?
Vegeta does remember Bardock (if only from hanging out with Raditz for a couple decades) but never discussed it with Goku. Okay.
Bardock found out the gas heaters planned to betray Freeza, but they're still alive and the Saiyans are not (I forgot, are the heeters still serving Freeza since his revival or is this just a coincidence ?). Maybe they're planning to handle Bardock's failed rebellion from this, beyond this mere flashback cameo, and we'll get a good new look at it.
I really hope Bardock is only surprised that Gine's tummy is flat because he didn't realize it's been several months and she's given birth since last time he saw her, rather than the manga trying to suggest he doesn't understand what pregnancy is despite having had Raditz before Goku. The fuck was that, really. Like "what the fuck, did a tiny person just come out of you ?"
If it is just because he didn't care to keep track of her pregnancy time, then maybe that checks out with him acting kinda nonchalant about deciding on a whim to spare the mom and kid : he just doesn't care about much most of the time and ends up being oblivious about a lot. Look at him lying so easily about looking for survivors, that man does not give a shit about anything, and with a straight face.

We're getting another login event for 7k rubies, so the next pair of Signature fighters is coming. Ryo and Terry to complete the current title splash screen ? Or will it be some revamped units already ?

that image said:
Heidern has always been there pushing the story along
lol he was relevant with Clone Zero in '00 and that's it. His role with Rugal was "you took my eye and killed my family", what has he actually done in the story ?

Oh, is there a difference, you think ? Because there wouldn't be a difference in Japanese, just in the translation, where the English "main heroine" has a different suggestion than the "main character". Was Shun'ei still labeled as the hero ? I didn't pay attention to him.

Yeah, the successive "main heroes" are leaders of their own team. Kyo, K', Ash, Shun'ei, so Isla is getting her own team since she's been labeled the hero of XV.
Heidern could be in any of these currently incomplete teams for whatever reason the story wants.

Turns out that team relay was a big troll and his HP bar is in the billions but you only need to deal 10% damage to get all the rewards. It's still tough to get the Halloween units decent enough to get there, but it's manageable, you don't need everyone at 5* and you can avoid splurging on stones that you're basically tossing down the trash (just lv3 to 5 stones and 3*~4* awakening is enough if you temporarily give them your strong card sets). It does need some fine tuning and a few tries.
Chris leading team purple and Kula with the SS special card is a must, yeah (control Chris so that he doesn't whiff all his supers by a mile, and take out Heidern's 5pg card because it can't grab the boss but his base super can). The rest is playing around with Angel, Alice and anyone else until you hit the spot.

And then just hope they never try that shit again.

Well the team relay event where you can only play Halloween units is some bullshit. No one is going to max any of this trash, let alone 6 of them.

and certain Halloween themed units will be buffed.
Yeah, just Alice and Chris - they get a much easier time applying their special effect (extra damage and petrify). None of the gold units are getting anything, even though the Halloween shop will sell a gold Halloween unit selector.

On the other FES buffs - in Chapter of Fight, I've been having the most trouble with yellow units keeping up with CP (I do not want to run the clock doing 0 damage all the time). I wish Saiki and LOZero got upgrades for that, they're great but they've become virtually unusable. And somehow, Honoka and Krizalid refuse to pass the 100k CP bar whatever I give them with 4 lv10 stones, only my Kyo got there.

I never played a Metroid game before but I've been watching a Twitch streamer play Zero Mission, Samus Return, and Super Metroid. I just finished Metroid Dread... 99%. I got 100% on almost all areas (had to get a hint from Youtube for a couple of the really hard secrets), except one area : I just can't do the item at the top of Cataris done, 100%. Trying hard mode and time cutting this week.
I had a real hard time against Kraid (until I picked up a bunch of upgrades and came back to beat him silly), and Z-57. And then even with near 100% on the life and missile upgrades, Raven Beak was still crazy hard. Although after dying three times to his third form, the first two are a lot easier.

Nice catch on Broly, really glad to see that (I wonder if they planned to have him visible there, seems like a big spoiler to be revealed with such a tiny detail). The new character (and surely the other one too) is also revealed to be from the Red Ribbon, they hid that detail on the concept art they showed this summer. He has the attitude of a super hero, so is the Red Ribbon trying to pose as good guys fighting the dangerous Saiyans ? Also weird that they have a picture of Buu with his angry eyes. Are they trying to reveal that Buu was a bad guy that killed everyone after the ending of DBZ had everyone's memories erased, or something along those lines ?

Sadly it's not on the list, it's pretty much only old school 2D classics franchises. Yie Ar Kung fu is in it though.
So far, I imagine Goemon will be the most popular. There's something called Majou Densetsu too, which looks like the kind of Zelda-like that might have had a strong niche cult (if it was any good). nope, it's weird.
There's a bunch of stuff that feel like Japan-only arcade shovelware from the NES era judging by the titles. Esper Dream, Valley of the Kings King's Valley, Bio Miracle, Mad City, Moai-kun, Nicole the love warrior, Dream Penguin Tale... and a handful of shooting games. I mean, who wouldn't want to jump at the chance to remake unique titles like Force Gear, Space Mambo, Falchion, Gunsite, Gyras, whatever they are ! There's just so many choices.

edit - found what King's Valley was, this looks like it has some serious potential for a modern horror archaeology game lol. Nicole is a weird-ass Zelda-like.

Obviously but that's a lot more than the Orochi Iori voice, O Iori just had a crazy voice, not a straight up double voice like that. It makes it seem like Orochi is actually in Iori the way he was in Chris in 97. That's a big story change waiting to happen here.

Looking at the various combo videos going around... The flame effects are all super bad. Kyo's punch combos, Iori's Saika... Man, that's ugly.
I'm okay with Isla's design, she looks like a random graffiti artist off the street.
.... What's going on with Iori's double voice during his ultimate ?
