What Sticks Out About Dragon Ball Z Sagas? What Sticks Out About Dragon Ball Z Sagas?

(AfroGamers.com) Sagas in Dragon Ball Z have always been oddly defined. A saga is often a long tale about the life and adventures of the protagonist. Dragon Ball as a whole is the saga, not the individual story arcs. Of course, putting “saga” on the end of a long-running story arc sounds better than just putting “arc” at the end. Let’s look at a few “sagas” from DBZ that were always hard... [Read more of this review]

After that the license was just dormant... [Read more of this review]

(AfroGamers.com) So, earlier this month, GameStop saw a massive jump in its stock price. This is after years of just not being a store worth paying attention to and some closing up shop for good.
