Well, this caught me off guard completely.  Not sure if it's canon or not (it's possible), but it seems pretty interesting so far.

First time I saw this I thought it was a featured fan fiction project.

There's so much What-If stories and other such things now that I'll just assume this is one such. In fact there's also another Bardock saved from the explosion that was brought to the timeline of DragonBall Online, which is more or less canon since Toriyama is fairly involved. I think SSJ Bardock might've appeared in that one very-much-non-canon Arcade game before this (along with such characters as SSJ3 Future Trunks and Chilled), so this is probably just something to go along with it.

The DBZ Bardock Movie will always be one of the most memorable landmarks in the series. Most DBZ movies were mediocre, save for Legendary SSJ, History of Trunks and Wrath of the Dragon.

As for this, can't say i'm that excited to read it. The "What-if" stories don't serve much purpose besides humor (at least in the DBZ games) or bad plot points.

I know Toriyama's involved directly with this one, along with Ooishi Naho, the other person he left DBZ to, which is one reason why I think it may be canon.  It seems to be a prologue of sorts, explaining the origins of the Cold family's history with the Saiyans and all.

Now look what you made me do... I just had to find archives of the two currently-released chapters.
You bastards. 8D

Read the first chapter just now, amazing stuff. Got me as excited as I was while I was reading the DBAF fan manga.
I guess all I can really say is it isn't exactly what I'd expect out of a $4.4M game

It doesn't even have mouth animations

I have too many guilty pleasures, plus they're more genius than the most recent DB media (I'm looking at you and your lack of backstory, Vegeta 3 and Broly 3).

Sweet, the 3rd and final chapter is up!  Man, what is up with the Cold Family and blwing up planets as a last resort?

It was already stated that Episode of Bardock was a What-If, where he survives Freeza's onslaught on the Saiyajin.
How would you subject this to the whole of the Z story, as you know it?

Apparently, an animated adaption for Episode of Bardock is on the way.
