Master Roshi Dragon Ball Spin-Off Series

Wouldn’t this be a fascinating thing?

In Dragon Ball, especially in the first few seasons, Master Roshi is this mysterious master of martial arts who is without question the most powerful man on the planet. And what makes him even more intriguing is that he is well past his prime.

There are many things about his past that are worth seeing. Master Roshi has many objects that beg origin stories on how he came across them, and there are many events mentioned that need to be expanded upon.

They delve slightly into his past, but we need a full show now! It could start with him training under Mutaito with Shen and just show him progress through his long life. I mean, the man is like 500 years old or something. That’s a lot of potential content.

Things I would like to see are a more developed relationship with his sister, fortune-teller Baba, and best friend Shen.

How he obtained Baby Gamera and the Bansho Fan

His climb to the top of Korrin’s Tower and the three years he spent there and when he got the nimbus cloud

How he developed the Kamehameha Wave

How he learned to push his limits beyond that of human potential

Why he became the Turtle Hermit

How he learned to make his muscles huge at will

When he became renowned as the strongest man in the world

These are all just some things about his life that could make for some exciting episodes.

It could go up to him taking on Gohan and Ox King as students and then focus on those two and their back stories a bit as well, and then end the show around the time Gohan finds Goku, thus nicely tying it right into Dragon Ball.

It wouldn’t be a show like Z and Super with big powerups and explosions, but more straight martial arts action with some epic parts thrown in.

I hope one day this becomes a real thing, because I think it would be a fun ride to see one of Dragon Ball’s most intriguing and pervy characters grow into the personality and life that we know so well.

My Top 10 NES Games

I never really loved the NES, even when it was the only thing out there. But it did have far better options than anything before it, and among all the crap on the console, there were still a few gems. So let’s take a look at my 10 favorite out of the 32 I own, though I have only played 28 of them so far.

 

#10

Megaman4_box

Mega Man 4

Capcom

1992

 

 

 

 

All the Mega Man games feel like the same game to me, but just kept getting better slightly, as if it’s one game with DLC being constantly added to it. I was always excited to see what robots they would come out with next.

#9

Megaman5_box

Mega Man 5

Capcom

1992

 

 

 

 

Like I said, they just keep getting better.

#8

Megaman6_box

Mega Man 6

Capcom

1994

 

 

 

This is the best one on the NES. I told you, I’m not a huge fan of NES, but the Mega Man series is fantastic.

#7

Kid_Icarus_NES_box_art

Kid Icarus

Nintendo

1987

 

 

 

This game is really hard, but also quite satisfying, so that I never really got mad over the countless times I died. The gameplay is just really fun and keeps you wanting more. When you beat it, it’s a great feeling.

#6

Castlevania_II_Simon's_Quest

Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest

Konami

1988

 

 

 

This is a ridiculously impossible to figure out game. But with a walkthrough, it is so much fun and one of my favorite Castlevania games of all time.

#5

zelda-2

 

Zelda II: The Adventure of Link

Nintendo

1988

 

 

 

This is another really hard game, but again, quite satisfying. It really is a lot of fun once you get strong enough to hold your own.

#4

Super_Mario_Bros_2

Super Mario Bros 2

Nintendo

1988

 

 

 

Quite a turn from the first game, but man is it fun. A really great platformer.

#3

kirbys_adventure-42565615-42386097-org

Kirby’s Adventure

HAL Labs/ Nintendo

1993

 

 

 

What a unique and fantastic platformer. So much fun…

#2

zelda

The Legend of Zelda

Nintendo

1987

 

 

 

Oh. My. God. This was easily the most ambitious and by far the best game to ever come out at it’s time. It’s a huge game packed with secrets, enemies and items and it just was jaw dropping, and still is really…

#1

Super_Mario_Bros._3_coverart

Super Mario Bros 3

Nintendo

1990

 

 

 

In the way Zelda shattered everything, this game did just as much. It took a classic and improved upon it 100fold. It’s just so big, with so many paths and items. One of the best platformers out there and one of the best games of all time.

And there you have it. My top 10 must haves for the console that started modern gaming.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My Top 10 Favorite Game Reveals From e3 2018

Another e3 has just about wrapped up and pretty much everybody revealed some incredible titles, so I am going to share the 10 I am most excited about! Note that I am only listing games that were revealed for the first time, or I had no idea were in the works.

 

#10-NioH 2 (PS4)

NioH-2

 

#9- Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 (PS4, XB1, PC)

#8- For Honor: Marching Fire (PS4, XB1, PC)

#7- Wolfenstein: Youngblood (PS4, XB1, PC)

#6- Super Mario Party (Switch)

#4- Doom Eternal (PS4, XB1, PC)

#3 Daemon x Machina (Switch)

#2 Devil May Cry 5 (PS4, XB1)

DMC5-Ann_06-10-18

 

#1 Jedi: Fallen Order

This didn’t even really get an actual reveal but was talked about vaguely during EA’s conference. Nonetheless, I am most excited for it because it sounds sort of like Force Unleashed, except you play as a Jedi instead of a Sith apprentice.

 

 

 

My Most Wanted For Smash Bros Switch

e3 is less than a week away and I couldn’t be more excited, but mostly I am excited for Tuesdays Nintendo online video, where there is sure to be lots of exciting news, none more so than (hopefully) a good deal of information on the new smash bros game.

Many people still seem doubtful that this is a new game, but rather a port of the Wii U/3DS versions, which would be a huge let down after all the hype, so I seriously doubt it is. Plus when they initially announced it, they seemed to go out of their way to title the trailer “Nintendo Switch Super Smash Bros” instead of Super Smash Bros for Nintendo switch, which were how the Wii U and 3DS games were titled.

So anyway, there are thousands of characters people want to see appear in these games each time one comes out. Brawl gave me several characters I wanted added (Toon Link, Wolf, Sonic). After that game, anything seemed possible, especially since they added so many newcomers (though I think Little Mac was the only one added that I really wanted in 4…oh and Mega Man…and Shulk…k that one delivered too).

So here are some characters I would love to see…and no…Ridley and King K. Rool are not going to be on this list. I am not opposed to literally any character becoming playable, and honestly I get excited for any newcomer, even if I don’t know who they are, but I would be a tad more excited if these upcoming characters appear.

First and foremost, I would love to see every character that has been cut back in it, which means Snake, Wolf and especially the Ice Climbers, who were only cut because of the limitations of the 3DS. The only ones that don’t need to come back are Young Link, Toon Link is a perfect replacement and Pichu…cuz why?

And now onto the newcomers I would love to see.

Paper Mario (Paper Mario series obviously)

paper_mario_wii

I know, another Mario character, but he would just be so cool. With a ton of partners and sweet special moves to pull from, he could be a whole lot of fun.

 

 

 

 

Dark Samus (Metroid Prime series)

DarkSamus

Aside from looking cool, Dark Samus has an impressive array of powers and abilities, some of them demonstrated as an assist trophy in the last game. Now make it fully playable!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Simon Belmont (Castlevania series)

Simon_Belmont_-_01

 

This has been a third party character I’ve wanted for a while. His legacy on NES, his chain and special weapons all make him a great candidate for smash.

 

 

 

 

 

Sora (Kingdom Hearts series)

Sora_KHIII

I love Kingdom Hearts, so to see the main character in one of my favorite games of all time would be magical. Again, he has an enormous move set to pull from to make him a worthy adversary against Nintendo’s finest.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Luigi (Luigi’s Mansion)

luigi-s-mansion-luigis-mansion-32298744-560-576

Give Luigi a moveset based off his Mansion games. There is no need to have him a partial Mario clone anymore, though I was thrilled his final smash in 4 used the poltergust.

 

 

 

 

 

Sonic and Tails (Sonic series…duh)

sonic and tails

Instead of just Sonic, let these two be a team like the Ice Climbers, since in the Genesis games, they functioned in the exact way the Ice Climbers do now.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Viewtiful Joe (game with the same name)

Viewtiful_Joe

He’s awesome and has a nice, crazy moveset that would fit right in.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wonder Red (Wonderful 101)

Wonder-Red

He is from the team that made Viewtiful Joe, so I guess I would rather see Red, for he is actually a Nintendo character. Maybe give him a combination of all the other wonder’s power which would give him a truly awesome moveset.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dixie Kong (Donkey Kong Country Series)

dixie kong

 

Either as a team with Diddy or stand alone character, I want her.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Zero (Mega Man X series…not the Zero series look)

zero

I would love to have X, Mega Man and Zero all be in it, but hey, Zero would be a cool addition if I had to choose one, after Mega Man, that is.

 

 

 

 

 

 

And those are just some of my more hopefuls that came to mind right off the bat. Paper Mario is my most wanted for sure, ever since leading up to Brawl. Of course there are dozens more I would love to see in it too.

But I will not be disappointed with who they add, as long as there are very little cuts and plenty of additions, I will be thrilled.
