    This game really needs a training mode. This is as far from cr.short, cr.short xx super as you can get. lol. It’s Pretty easy to get really extended combos, but the opponents die so quick that you’re always having to go back into battle and there’s no rematch option so you have to sit through loading screens and character select over and over. Gets tiresome.

    The thing that pisses me off about this game is that SSGSS Vegeta is a damn Z Assist. What a waste…
