Re: Least Powerful/ Weakest Gundams?

True the AEUG was definitely resource constrained and Luna Titanium is extremely expensive (plus replacement armor!). But it is used by their Ace Pilot so you'd think they would want the best protection possible. Mafty's point makes a lot of sense though, since the AEUG rarely ever got a break durin...

Re: New Gundam Seed project; sequel movie, manga and more

The mechs actually look quite different from elsewhere in the CE , some other forums mentioned the Eclipse looks like the Xi Gundam from Hathaways Flash. That was my first thought as well, I was surprised they're going to make the Eclipse design / silhouette so similar to the Xi Gundam. I feel like...

Re: The Official Gundam Hathaway Anime Thread Mk I

That is a bit difficult to comprehend if Mafty wants to stop the deportation of people into space but at the same time Hathaway wants humanity as a whole to move into space (Char's ideals). I'm not an expert on Hathaway's Flash but my understanding was that Hathaway was trying to both embrace Amuro ...

Re: Your Favorite Non-Gundam Anime Soundtracks/Songs

Rise is a great OP song from Stand Alone Complex. I saw Boom Boom Sattelites in concert many years back when they toured in DC, I've still got a Pandora station for them and occasionally Rise will pop up on the playlist. I haven't seen SAC in a long while, definitely worth a rewatch.

Re: Least Powerful/ Weakest Gundams?

The Gundam Mark II. Aside from the full body movable frame, it was merely an experimental unit with no plans to be upgraded by the Titans. Basic weaponry, lesser armor quality, very quickly matched/surpassed by other units. How it made it through ZZ without any (new) upgrades like Zeta had with the...

It looks a bit cartoonish, they need to make a Gundam game like Mechwarrior Online, then I might pay attention.
If you're looking for a more realistic-ish game then Gundam Battle Operation 2 is probably the closest you'll get at the moment.

Re: Obscure Gundam Wing Weaponry & Equipment

Those are some interesting tidbits. I hadn't thought about rifle weight before but with the Airmaster having atmospheric flight it would be quite important. Also interesting that in the X continuity Luna Titanium is half the weight of materials normally used in BR construction. For the GX it mention...

Re: Super Robot Wars 30 - Global Release

I've heard that in the streaming age worldwide licenses have gotten quite a bit easier so I'm guessing the licensing for SRW 30 at long last was not too cost prohibitive. There's also a decent amount of series that are owned by Bamco which cuts down on costs. As for DLC I've heard that DLC units typ...

Re: Obscure Gundam Wing Weaponry & Equipment

Here's a question on Wing on X. Was there ever a reason given for why they decided to name X's beam rifle a "Shield Buster Rifle" ? I've always wondered on that one, since X wasn't too far off from Wing and the Buster rifle in Wing is very iconic so it seemed like an odd choice to call it that when ...

Re: Super Robot Discussion?

As someone with only passing familiarity with Getter Robo from SRW games, is it one continuous series or do they have reboots / alt universes / spin offs aplenty like Marzinger?

Re: Your Favorite Non-Gundam Anime Soundtracks/Songs

Nana Mizuki is solid, I enjoy the tempo in every one of her songs.

Good call on Wolf's Rain, forgot about that but I really love her work on that soundtrack. For other Yoko Kanno soundtracks I enjoyed her work on Arjuna and Darker than Black.

Re: Anime Series' that got big budget remakes/re-tellings in film format

The Escaflowne movie seemed more like an alternate universe than a film remake to me. Similar to how CLAMP's X - TV series is wildly different than the X - Movie including a different ending. I didn't know Tomino wanted a full remake for Zeta, there's some really beautiful animation in A New Transla...

Pacific Rim 1 worked so well because Guillermo Del Toro and the staff were big Mecha fans, in addition to the homages they ...
