Dragonball Z BATTLE OF Z coming to lots of consoles

Import Review: Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods photo
Import Review: Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods
by Elliot Gay

I spent a good portion of my childhood devouring anything with the Dragon Ball Z brand on it.

School would end, and I'd rush home to catch the latest episode of the Cell Saga on Cartoon Network's Toonami block. Everyday meant another new episode and even crazier action. I know I'm not alone in this: an entire generation spent their afternoons watching Goku and his friends (but mostly Goku) kick all kinds of ass. 

Seventeen years after the last feature film, Dragon Ball Z has returned to theaters in the form of Battle of Gods. Unsurprisingly, the movie is a box office success and has already grossed a whopping $7,000,000 in just two days.

Is it any good though?

KFC serves up some tasty Gohan

Man, KFC in Japan is so much cooler than the one by my house. When I've gone to pick up an order they've even once told me they are out of chicken. How does a fried chicken joint run out of fried chicken? In Japan they don't ...
