Game Update

Mobile Update


It’s time for the monthly Mobile Update! This one may be a bit smaller than the last few as the only 2 active games I am playing at the moment are Pokemon Go and Dragon Ball Legends, but that also means I had more to accomplish in both. Without further ado, lets take a look.

In Pokemon Go I caught 4 new Pokemon, Mr. Mime, Kangaskhan, Unknown, and Deoxys. I now have 372/377 Pokemon in the game. I’m still missing a few regionals, but I’m one step closer to completing the dex. I increased my bag space to 1900 so I won’t have to keep filling up on items for a little while. I only caught 1400 Pokemon this time so a little less than usual, but I’ll get back on track for next time. I also maxed out Gengar and Houndoom to give my Mewtwo counter team a little more bulk. For the next update I should almost certainly have finished maxing out another 2 so keep an eye out for that!

In Dragon Ball Legends I completed the new story updates to both the game original storyline and the DBZ classics which are now in the middle of the Android saga. I increased my Z level all the way from 44 to 57 so I was definitely quite active this time around. I obtained 9 new characters including Trunks, Pan, Super Saiyan 2 Gohan, Cell forms 1/2, Trunks, and 2 more Gokus. I also reached level 21 for the first time in the PVP mode when 19 was my old record. We’ll see if I can get any further along. I increased Krillin, Yamca, Nappa, Zarbon, Raditz, Tien, and Saibaman from level 600 to 1000. I maxed out another Goku, Kid Gohan, Vegeta, Burtur, Android 18, and Super Saiyan Vegeta. So, definitely a lot of cool stuff there. I do like how unlike other gatcha games you can’t collect more than 1 of the same fighter. It’s something that makes this game unique and it feels a lot less overwhelming.

We’ll see what else is in store for next time! Hopefully by then they’ve added the Arc 3 characters.

Mobile Update

It’s update time! This time only 2 games have any news to speak of, Pokemon Go and Dragon Ball Legends. The others have fallen to the side and are desperately awaiting reinforcements like RWBY in October. So this is a pretty small mobile update compared to usual, but it still has some hype stuff I bet!

In Dragon Ball Legends I increased my level from 40 to 44. I obtained a few new characters including Perfect Cell, Imperfect Cell, Cabba x2, and a new Yamcha. I also maxed out a few more fighters including Final Form Frieza and Spirit Bomb Goku. Finally, I got Super Saiyan Vegeta to level 1000. Mostly the news was just level ups this time around, but more story levels have been added so you can bet that I’ll be going after those soon.

In Pokemon Go I finally caught Celebi! Naturally that’s the biggest news in the batch. I also increased my bag space to 1600 so I won’t max out so easily. I also caught another 2000 Pokemon which seems to be my monthly norm. The only new Pokemon that I’ve maxed out this time is Latias. I am sitting on around 700000 stardust though so once I decide who to max out next I can probably do around 3 in a row. That’ll be hype! Currently the Regionals are running around in the eggs so hopefully I can catch them before they’re gone!

That’s it for now folks. I’ll see you in October. I imagine that the next mobile update will be rather similar with Legends and Go pulling the weight but maybe one of the others will be able to contribute a bit more next time. I suppose only time will tell.

Mobile Update


It’s time for the next Mobile Update! This time the bulk of the news is in Dragon Ball Legends which has been updating quite frequently with new story updates and characters. Pokemon Go consistently stays up as well while Fruits Mania and Lollipop saw a huge decline as I just haven’t played them much lately. I think those games are nearing their end.

In Fire Emblem Heroes I got 2 new characters and I did beat the new story chapter. That’s got to count for something right? Yeah, this game definitely seems to be on its last legs, I need something cool to really whip it into shape! The new heroes were Jeorge and Olwen.

In Lollipop I beat the next 7 levels and am now up to 675. Most impressive I’ll admit but that’s not much when you think about it.

In Fruits Mania I beat the next 60 levels and am up to 516. This one is definitely gaining on Lollipop.

In Pokemon Go I finally caught Regirock! Now I can say that I have all 3 of the Regi’s. I also have Lunatone as well so I’m all set for Sinnoh. I now have 366/375 Pokemon. I only caught 2000 Pokemon this time around. I maxed out Vileplume, Snorlax, Breloom, Manectric, and Salamance. I also got Shiny Eevee along with all 3 of his base elemental forms. It’s definitely cool to see him doing so well. By the next update I should definitely have Celebi at the ready!

In Dragon Ball Legends I’ve done a massive amount. I gained 12 Z levels and am now 40. I also got 16 new characters and am only missing 5 now. I’m at 62/75. I finished up the second part of the Main story as well as the Android 19 saga. I was able to get everyone to at least Level 600 while I also managed to get my top 3 to Level 1500 and another one is closing in on that. The story levels are becoming increasingly difficult but now I can say that I am absolutely ready for them! There were too many level ups to single out every character, but thanks to the EXP event I got well over 2000 levels when you count everyone. Probably more like 10,000 because it was over 300 levels per character with some going from 0-600 or 1000 to 1500.

That’s it for this month so lets see what happens next time! I expect Dragon Ball and Pokemon Go will still have news but Fire Emblem Heroes probably won’t have any since I’ll probably give that game a break for a long while. Lollipop and Fruits will likely have something I suppose.

Mobile Update


It’s time for the July Mobile Update! This time around the list of games where I’ve made an accomplishment in are a little smaller as I don’t have to play Ladybug anymore since I 100% beat it. Most of the accomplishments are in Pokemon Go as per usual, but all of the others get their time to shine as well.

In Fire Emblem Heroes I attained 1 new character. His name is Legault and that’s the extent of my Fire Emblem news. A new chapter has come out though so I’ll beat that pretty soon.

In Lollipop I completed the next 24 levels. It’s definitely slowed down considerably as the latest levels are pretty difficult and I haven’t had much time to play it. It’s always fun matching those fruits of course! I am now up to level 668

In Fruits Mania I completed the next 49 levels and am now up to Level 456. This game is definitely starting to gain on Lollipop. The tides have turned, but we’ll see how far the progression is by next month.

Now it’s time for the games with much larger accomplishments to step up. In Dragon Ball Legends I obtained many level ups and new characters. I increased my Z level from 22 to 28. I obtained 11 more characters and now have 45 total. I maxed out EX Goku and SP Piccolo to level 1000. I’ve also gotten just about every character to at least the minimum of Level 300 which maxes them out in the first tier. I haven’t played as much lately though so probably less news for next time.

In Pokemon Go I finally got Heracross, Regice, and Registeel. I’m still looking for Lunatone but it’s only a matter of time. I’ve caught 6000 more Pokemon since last month which is considerably better than last time’s 3000. I maxed out Metagross, Raikou, Pidgeot, Slaking, and a few others along the way. At this rate maxing out everyone could actually happen someday, although it still certainly won’t be in the near future.

That’s all the updates for now!

It’s been a month so time for the Mobile Update! Quite a lot has happened across the various apps so prepare for a big one! The biggest accomplishments were probably in Pokemon Go and Dragon Ball Legends but most of the games pulled their weight this time around.

In the Ladybug Adventures I have collected the rest of the stars meaning that I have achieved a perfect score on every single level. I also rounded up most of the stickers (Only missing about 10 but rng makes it very unlikely that I will get the rest) and even upgraded my Yoyo. I’ve essentially 100% completed the game at this point so I probably won’t have any updates for a while. The developers told me to stay tunes for updates though so maybe the game will get some more content soon.

In Fire Emblem Heroes I have obtained 8 new heroes. They are: Sheena, Tiki, Lachesis, Julius, Ishtar, Soren, Possessed Robin, and Xander. Some pretty big names there now so that’s pretty impressive. My collection is currently 126/259 characters. I also completed the latest story update. Things aren’t looking good for the heroes as always. At this point I wonder if they will ever get to take this villain down!

In Fruits Mania I completed the next 27 levels. They’re definitely getting trickier as that’s the slowest progress yet. I am now up to level 407. The fruits just keep on coming!

In Lollypop I completed the next 65 levels. I am now up to 644. I’m definitely a lot closer to the goal here as I have crossed the halfway point. Most impressive I have to admit. I’m slowly getting there.

Dragon Ball Legends has quite a few accomplishments since last time. I increased my Z level from 18 to 22. I obtained the next 4 characters so now I’m only missing 2. Level ups are quite easy so I won’t go into depth on any of those. Needless to say I have no character under level 130 anymore though and I finally maxed out one character, the main character Shallot at level 1000. The game’s definitely a blast and I hope they add more story chapters soon.

In Pokemon Go I finally evolved a Slaking. Now I have every Pokemon aside from Regional Exclusives and the Unknown. I also obtained a Shiny Tyranitar courtesy of Community Day. I maxed out Fearow and Rayquaza so those are 2 more Pokemon that I don’t need to worry about now. I caught around 3000 Pokemon this month which is pretty solid since that’s about 100 a day. It may seem like a small update next to some of the other titles, but I just won’t go into detail on every little thing. Hopefully we get one of the Regi Pokemon to show up soon.

That’s it for this time! Some games didn’t have any updates since I don’t have them downloaded anymore like Sonic Forces, Tekken, 1010, Marvel’s Contest of Champions, and a few others while other games I still have but simply didn’t touch. (Sword Art Online) We’ll see how the list looks next month so stay tuned!

Dragon Ball Legends Review


It’s time to look at a recent app game that was getting a lot of hype when it was coming out. Finally, Dragon Ball was getting a big fighting game that would take the world by storm. It felt like this was a long time coming. After playing the game for a while, I can definitely say that there is more to it than a lot of other titles. It still does have some limitations of course and is rather slow paced as you can expect from a game that will try to drag itself out for a few years, but it’s a solid way to spend some time and continue the story from Super.

The plot follows a Saiyan named Shallot. He has amnesia which is always a convenient plot device since this way he can start off rather weak and grow stronger as the game progresses. He doesn’t know what is happening, but fortunately Beerus is here to explain. There is a big tournament going on that spans all of time. Fighters have been brought over from every era in order to participate. The intent is to see who the strongest of all is…in theory. Actually, Beerus is being forced to do this by an unknown villain who has kidnapped the Supreme Kai. He wants us to figure out who is pulling the strings, but honestly that sounds rather difficult if this guy decides not to enter the tournament. Don’t focus on the plot too much I guess. Shallot is on board so he will now team up with Bulma from the original Dragon Ball series as well as Jaco to try and win this thing.

The reason why the OP Super versions of the characters were not brought into the mix is because the villain is apparently keeping tabs on them so Beerus doesn’t dare approach. Of course, you may be wondering why they haven’t just shown up yet anyway as they one shot everyone. So far we have only been running across guys from Arc 1 of DBZ so surely they wouldn’t be much of an obstacle. The in universe reason may be that the place is simply so massive that you can have a bunch of battles going on at once, but out of universe it’s just that the game wants to trickle in the characters arc by arc. I hope they speed it up a little though because it feels like otherwise this will be one of those games that dies out long before it hits the final arc.

Part 1 just ended earlier today so I’m not sure how long the wait will be until Part 2. Hopefully it’s just a short wait so then the game’s plot actually will be able to move. If it’s like Fire Emblem Heroes then we can expect a new chapter every 2 weeks and since each part is 7 chapters then we’ll finish a part roughly every 4 months. That’s quite a bit of time so hopefully it is a little quicker than that. While the plot may not be very believable it is a fun one so I’ll give the game some props there. I’ll also give it some more for making Shallot an actual character as opposed to someone with no actual name that has no real personality. He even talks a bit as the game does include a bit of voice acting. (To be precise, Shallot talks a lot, but you hear him once in a while)

Shallot is a decent enough character even if he is pretty rude the whole time. He’s constantly yelling at everyone and can’t seem to really grasp the concept of power levels. Since he couldn’t even beat Nappa at first, what makes him think that he can take on someone like Beerus? There’s being confident and then there’s just putting up a weak front. His Zenkai Boosts are fairly good though as he went from Raditz level to Zarbon in a single part. Maybe by the end of the second part he will be up to Final Form Frieza or something. That would definitely be neat.

We also have the rival character who shows up for a bit. He’s an interesting figure who is more of a specialist than a fighter. He can teleport and use various magical spells to complement his sword based fighting style. He ran off though and I don’t recall his name at the moment, but I’m sure that we haven’t seen the last of him. There is also Dark Shallot who shows up near the end. It seems that he might be the future version of the normal Shallot so that will make for a fun match. He’s considerably stronger than the heroic version which is to be expected, but fortunately Goku put him in his place. Since this is Super Goku he should be leagues stronger than any of these fighters.

The graphics are pretty good and the game certainly put a lot of effort into them. The opening cinematic is excellent and wouldn’t look out of place in a big budget title. The gameplay animations are smooth and the character models are on point. Meanwhile the soundtrack is a little weak, but hopefully they will add more tunes soon. Mobile games don’t tend to have a lot of them, but I’d certainly like to see that.

Then we come to the gameplay. It is your typical tap fighter, but with a few extra gameplay wrinkles to make it more unique. You are given some cards during the battle. They come in 4 types, punches, ki blasts, special attack, and status change. They are fairly explanatory, but once you get hit by the punch or ki blast you are stuck in hit stun and must eat a full combo. Each fighter has 100 energy so if you get hit by the first combo and they have 3 more cards with energy totaling less than what they have left you must eat 4 combos in a row. You can potentially beat an opponent in one shot like this. Most fights are 3 on 3 so use your strategy here. Do you want to use your combo right away or save it until the final fighter? Then you’ve got burst rush which is essentially a one hit KO attack in most circumstances. You only get 1 per battle so use it wisely. Then you’ve got dodging and character specific abilities which don’t need cards. There’s a lot to master here so try to get used to it all. I definitely find the gameplay pretty fun. It’s probably the closest thing we’ll ever get to a true 3D fighter on the mobile since there is no control stick to use.

Your character levels also matter quite a lot here. Each character can go up to level 1000 and at that level your attacks do massive damage. There is almost no way for a weaker fighter to beat a stronger one if the gap is wide enough and your levels stick with you online as opposed to other games. At the moment I am 10-0 online, but most of my opponents were bots. Supposedly that issue was fixed today so I imagine my win rate would drop if I went back. Maxing out anyone will take a long time unless you pay since materials and Zenny don’t just grow on trees. Of course if you play the game enough then of course you can speed up the process.

As far as the game modes go you have the main story and PVP. You also have mini stories that follow the DBZ anime without the OC character (Up to Nappa at the moment) and daily missions you can complete for extra energy and characters. There are also Adventures where you send a character off for a few hours and they bring you back items in return. Then we have actual Missions where you get rewards for completing objectives. There are even more modes in store for you but that’s the general premise. When it comes to replay value this game is basically infinite but of course it can also be easy to burn yourself out if you play it too hard. Now that I’m caught up with the story I’ve dialed it back a bit like with Sonic Forces. That game eventually died completely but this one should at least live as much as Fire Emblem Heroes until the story is over. I just check in every other week to play the latest story although in Dragon Ball I’ll try to at least keep the daily streak alive for the items and keep sending my guys off to train to get the easy level ups.

Finally, I have to give the game some props for how they handle reused fighters. In Fire Emblem Heroes it’s annoying to get an old hero because it is basically worthless. You just have to trash the fighter for a few feathers, but you need 20000 to actually have something to use them on. Here the copies help to limit break your character. It’s possible that once the character is maxed then the copy won’t be of any use, but at least I feel like it’ll be a long while before that happens. There are also many parts of the game that I still don’t understand and likely won’t, but people who love to find out everything will have a blast studying this game.

Overall, Dragon Ball Legends lives up to the hype of being one of the big mobile games. I’d certainly say that it does a much better job of that than Sword Art Online did. (Review pending) In that game’s case it was simply a little too ambitious. Dragon Ball is definitely a title that I would highly recommend. There is a lot to do here even if the story is fairly early on and with the Broly event starting today this is your perfect chance to bet on your luck and hope you get him. As there aren’t many characters right now the odds of getting the one you want is pretty high. (I got Broly on my daily draw)

Overall 8/10
