ESF Is a Fast Paced, 3rd Person Fighter Based On The Hit Anime, Dragonball Z

Select your favorite character and fly, power up, transform, melee, and beam your enemies into pulp. Each character is given signature moves and abilities to compliment different style of play. Some are stronger in hand to hand combat, others are better with energy attacks. Play in three different game modes, deathmatch, team deathmatch, and capture the dragonballs. There is a learning curve so newbies beware. This is not your normal Half-life mod.

Blog RSS Feed Report abuse Latest News: Character Modelers Needed

13 comments by Deverz on Mar 2nd, 2014


Sick of waiting for ESF:F to come out? Want to help speed up the process? Well here's how you can help.

Are you a skilled modeler or know someone else who is? Well contact us on our team speak server and ask how you can help.

We are mostly looking for people who can help work on our remaining characters. This will require creating a character model, building UV maps and fully texturing the model.

Please provide some samples of your work and be prepared to take on a project from start to finish. Please do not contact us if you are not prepared to follow through and complete your set task. It costs the development team time to train new artists on ESF's custom systems setting us further behind.

We are also looking for environment modelers (Mappers), Object modelers (To make the maps more lively) and Music Composers.

Team Speak can be downloaded from here

Our Team Speak server is you will normally find somebody from the team idling there. Raven and Mastasurf are the best people to contact.

We hope to hear from you soon.

So was i. Street fighter is a fighting game. The only difference between DBZ games and Streetfighter is that DBZ games have a bigger range of movement with a slightly less developed combat system and QTE sequences for special attacks to make it seem faster, while street fighter has slower paced movement but a more complex combat system.

But make no misstake both are fighting games at their core. The similarities are like Half Life 1 and CoD 1. Both are FPS at their core.

so what just because its a mod its automatically easy? besides the mod was released already a long time ago , they are just enhacing it but the early version is playable.
Just because it doesnt have QTEs ( which it will prob have anyway) doesnt mean its not similar to tenkaichi in gameplay, its the same gameplay basis exept with better graphics and a bit smoother.

Tenkaichi 2 doesn't have QTEs and it doesn't oblige you to lock-on.

So my point has been proven.
Xenoverse is basically tenkaichi 2 , there are not many notable diferences exept the multiplayer, customization and graphics because the gameplay formula is still there and unfortunately is not a good one IMO

Just because the camera is in the 3rd perpective doens't mean the gameplay is the same. Xenoverse has Budokai all over it excpet the camera, so the combo systems are different, supers and Ultimates are all in Real-Time and overall it feels like a different game. Not even the control scheme is similar.

They only thing remotely similar thing about Budokai and Tenkaichi is that they're both DBZ and wannabe-fighting games.

You haven't proven anything, you're supposing, is very different.

The game is being developed by Dimps (Budokai series and Burst limit), thats the proof that indicates the game is gonna be different.

Anyway, this is a nonsense, we're discussing vaporware vs actual software. The choice should be obvious.

Its a slightly upgraded typical dragon ball for the console , people are just getting this hype because its on the pc , that and the online feature , they are not hyped because they never saw this before, trust me if the game was console only and the online never existed you probably wouldnt even have heard from it until its release, is the same ol thing.

No, LOL, I have a PS3 and I knew about the game since the first pic released. I was planning to buy it on PS3, but since my main platform is PC, I will buy it on Steam.

Keep waiting for your vaporware.
