Dragon Ball Super will see Vegeta going on a rage fueled bender to avenge the honor of wife Bulma against Beerus the destroyer tonight. Saiyan Vs Deity.
On the last episode of Dragon Ball Super, Bulma unleashed the slap heard around the world on party destroyer Beerus. Bulma wanted the deity off her boat and out of her life, telling Beerus he was an uninvited guest to begin with and ruining everything. Then it happened, Beerus returned the favor despite Vegeta pleading with Beerus to have mercy. Mere moments before Vegeta had resigned his fate to Beerus at least saying it noble for a warrior to perish against the destroyer of worlds. A true deity, which Lord Beerus was all too happy to smile about and thank Vegeta since most don’t appreciate the honor.
Now post-Bulma incident Vegeta is drunk with the fury of a million Saiyans. Immediately turning Super Saiyan in response to Bulma looking down and out, Vegeta is ready to fight Lord Beerus. Despite his own knowledge of fighting a losing battle, Vegeta will take on a colossal undertaking. Trying to match Beerus to the best of his abilities, everything is now on the table. No holding back against the Destroyer of worlds.
Meanwhile, Lord Beerus’ trusty assistant Whis is busy eating sushi and enjoying the brand new delicacy. Will Whis step in eventually to call a truce between Beerus and his search for the mythical Super Saiyan God in the name of good Earth made food?
Majin Buu’s Losing Battle
All Majin Buu wanted was about 15 puddings. Now Buu’s dessert time is over at the hands of Lord Beerus and usually that would mean payback. Yet Majin Buu was unable to land a single hit in response in two rounds. For the first time, Majin Buu’s enormous strength is rendered obsolete to the shock of Buu himself. In fact the only ‘attack’ he manages is when Beerus utilizes Buu by swinging him towards a charging Gohan, taking both out. Is Buu down for the count on Dragon Ball Super or is round 3 against Beerus in the making?
Dragon Ball Super S01E08 Trailer
It’s all action on tonight’s Dragon Ball Super as Vegeta goes toe to toe with the might that is Lord Beerus the destroyer. By the looks of tonight’s preview he even manages more than a few good punches in his Bulma rage induced frenzy. The episode’s name ‘Goku Shows Up! A Last Chance From Lord Beerus?’ does signal a Goku sighting. Goku was last seen taking a senzu bean after trying to spar with Beerus and realizing the futility of such a contest in his current form.
Will he join Vegeta tonight in fighting Beerus in a battle for Earth or convince Vegeta to stand out and try to negotiate with Beerus? Perhaps promise Beerus the Super Saiyan God in time if he waits it out just a bit longer. The answers await on tonight’s Dragon Ball Super airing on Toonami at 8pm ET!
Remember to check out last week’s Dragon Ball Super Preview and catch up on the latest!

PSN Game Deals are up for the week and feature a Critics’ Choice Sale as well as EA getting in on the action with digital game deals of their own.
This week’s Critics’ Choice Sale sees only Dragon Age Inquisition: Deluxe Edition majorly discounted at $7.99. Other standouts include Hotline Miami 2: Wrong Number cross-buy purchase a bargain at $8.99, and Street Fighter V’s Season 1 Character pass at $11.99.
Dragon Age Inquisition’s Game of the Year Edition remains fairly high compared to the Deluxe Edition’s quick buy price tag at $7.99. Fallout 4 fans might look into purchasing the Digital Deluxe bundle normally selling for $109.99 at $65.99. Life is Strange’s complete season bundle at $7.99 is also something to be checked out.
Nothing immediately jumps up as a must buy though and February looks like a slow month in terms of digital game deals. Even last week’s flash sale was a bit hefty in terms of markup compared to the past. That said if you’ve been waiting for any kind of discount of last year’s hottest titles these game deals will suffice.
Note: Only significant game deals or ones on fairly recent new-release games are listed here. We curate deals of interest so you don’t have to skim through hundreds of titles. The game deal cliff notes if you will.

Dragon Ball Super airs on Toonami tonight and the stakes are high as Lord Beerus crashes Bulma’s birthday party. Is this the end as Vegeta envisions?
On the last episode of Dragon Ball Super, Lord Beerus and Whis made their way onto Bulma’s cruise ship in hopes of learning who the whereabouts of a Super Sayian God. Bulma accepted the guests with open arms under the impression they were Vegeta’s friends and thought her husband was finally being social.
What Bulma and the rest of her party guests don’t know is that Beerus’s nickname is ‘The Destroyer’ and at any time he might eliminate their planet on a whim. Luckily Beerus’ unquenchable appetite for new and exotic foods temporarily quenched his thirst for destruction… That is until Majin Buu refused to share one of his puddings with him during dessert. Now tensions are running high as an attack from Buu on Beerus ended with Buu in shambles.
Vegeta’s Internal Conflict
After learning of Goku’s defeat in a mere two hits at the hands of Beerus from King Kai, Vegeta finds himself in a vulnerable position and total panic. He recalls his own father King Vegeta’s humiliation at the hands of Beerus during his youth. If Kakarot, his eternal adversary and rival was unable to square one hit on Beerus in Super Saiyan III form, what can Vegeta hope to do but appease Beerus until he leaves.
Dragon Ball Super S01E07 Trailer
On tonight’s Dragon Ball Super, placating Lord Beerus comes to an end after the slap heard around the world by Bulma. The trailer shows Bulma handing out the slap in response to Beerus ruining her party despite arriving uninvited. Despite Vegeta pleading with Beerus to have mercy on his wife, it appears Beerus does not respond in kind.
Vegeta goes into Super Saiyan mode and ready to trounce Beerus with everything he’s got to protect his wife’s honor. Despite Vegeta’s knowledge of Beerus overwhelming capabilities, he will throw in his hat into the circle of battle. Will Goku newly revived with a Senzu bean fuse with Vegeta one last time in an attempt to overthrow ‘The Destroyer’?

Capcom’s Resident Evil 7 is selling exponentially well. Over three million copies have shipped worldwide to date and no signs of stopping the rainmaker.
Resident Evil is back and came out swinging with lucky number seven. Capcom is reporting Resident Evil 7 biohazard has shipped an impressive 3+ million copies worldwide. The series is clearly going through an immense sales resurgence as the brand revitalizes its image. In recent years Resident Evil has seen mounting pressure on its market share from TV ratings darling The Walking Dead and Naughty Dog’s masterpiece The Last of Us.
Zombies are more than just en vogue, they’re here to stay. No longer niche but rather thoroughly mainstream. Resident Evil 7 biohazard sought to regain its market presence by going back to its roots, unadulterated, unfiltered pure horror. Capcom has taken advantage of the latest available technology in PlayStation VR to expand the possibilities for immersion in a way never before seen. Fans have responded in kind to the shift to a series-first perspective change from third-person to first-person.
– Over 76 million total cumulative units of the Resident Evil franchise have now been sold.
– The first Resident Evil was released on Sony’s PlayStation in Japan on March 22, 1996 as Biohazard.
– Resident Evil 7 features a brand new RE Engine that pushed hardware to the limits. The stunning optional PlayStation 4 VR mode is proof of the dedication that went into this project.
– Resident Evil 7 biohazard is an Xbox Play Anywhere digital game. Meaning shared game saves, game add-ons, and game achievements across the Xbox One console and Windows 10 PC.
You’re seeing the world through the protagonist’s eyes for the very first time in a Resident Evil game. It looks like Capcom has been watching their rivals perhaps taking in a lesson from the spectacle that was Sega’s Alien Isolation.
Resident Evil: The Final Chapter has similarly come out at a perfect time at the box office. The film rendition of the series starring lead actress Milla Jovovich has grossed over one billion dollars globally. Resident Evil: The Final Chapter is the sixth release in the successful Hollywood film franchise.
Capcom’s Stock on the Tokyo Stock Exchange is currently at 2,335.00 JPY (3:00 PM GMT+9) at the time of publishing.
