Re: Miscellaneous Gundam contributions

Well, thanks to G Generation Cross Rays I did some digging and ended up going through the Twitter account of manga artist Koichi Tokita, which gave me a whole bunch of new lineart for various Gundam Wing manga. --- New Mobile Report Gundam Wing: Battlefield of Pacifists OZ-04MD Virgo3 (Cube) Lineart...

Cross Silhouette Frame and older SD models

So this is something I've been wondering for a little while... Bandai put out this Cross Silhouette series of SD Gundam models that lets you choose between "classic" SD proportions (legless feet and tiny non-jointed arms) or the more modern proportions akin to what you see in MS Saga. I believe part...

Re: Miscellaneous Gundam contributions

As a quick little note, the Premium Bandai release of the Maganacs from Gundam Wing has given names to a couple of the more obscure weapons they wield. The assault rifle-looking weapon (seen in this picture above the heat tomahawk) is called a "long barrel rifle", while the arm-mounted weapon seen h...

Re: Gundam Vs. Series Discussion Topic

Well, it's been a while, so in case you missed it Gundam Extreme Vs 2 is currently being location tested across Japan. It looks to be shedding some of the elements that made Gundam Versus so divisive like Boost Dive and the slower speed in favor of being a straight-up sequel to the ExVs series. And ...

Re: Why doesn't Super Robot Wars have traditional character classes?

Because trying to shoehorn everything into categories made up by a bunch of nerds on a self-indulgent website like TV Tropes is a terrible idea.

Re: RPG Report?

So it's been a couple of weeks, and as promised here's some behind-the-scenes information about the game. Please bear in mind that most of this comes from conversations we had at dinner after the final session, therefore it's been a couple of weeks so I might not remember everything we discussed. Ma...

Re: RPG Report?

Re: RPG Report?

Sorry I've been quiet on this front, but the game has been delayed a couple of times, once because my brother wanted a weekend off to spend time with the waifu and then this past weekend because he didn't feel prepared. This latter one is because he says he's working to actually do something with th...

Well there was a significant delay, but I'm back with another session report. Sadly January was a complete wash because I was out of state helping my aunt.

Re: GUNDAM BUILD DIVERS

I dunno, I feel like the show is caught between two contradictory concepts. The whole point of Gunpla is that it's an actual thing you built with your own hands because, as long as you have the skill, you can do basically anything. Combining that with the whole VRMMO concept feels like it defeats th...

Re: Gundam Seed/Destiny Remaster Gets (re)Dub

Yeah, the broadcast version of Seed tried to censor handguns by painting on neon-colored strips and covering the muzzles with red circles to turn them into laser weapons. The effect was so cheesy that they were quickly nicknamed "disco guns", and some fans maintain the theory that it was cheesy on p...

Re: How can OZ mass-produce Virgos with Gundanium Alloy?

I think the non-technical factors are more important to consider here. From what we see over the course of the franchise, Romefeller basically has the run of the world MS market, since the only non-standard MS we ever see are the Maganacs and Oliphants (the latter of which are just kind of thrown to...

Re: Gundam Vs. Series Discussion Topic

Also for anyone who missed it, it looks like we'll be getting the White Dingos' GM Sniper II soon, since they added a Rise from the Ashes section to the in-game encyclopedia.
