Bardock is kinda lame and definitely not what this game needed right now.
He has a majority of paying fans that like him, though.
I'm a paying fan too. And I wasn't necessarily talking about the character himself. But more about his visual design. Like someone said, he looks exactly just like Goku, only with armor on and a scar. In a game where there are already too many variations of saiyans with spiky hair. I have no problems with the actual character.
Oh and he goes Super Saiyan, which is from that terrible fan fiction shit, the episode of Bardock. Minus is even worse though (Funny how people always use ''But Toriyama is involved!'' as a positive, when that should be a strict negative by this point).
What this game needed asap is something like Roshi, Dabura, Janemba, even Cooler would be preferable.
