Re: State of the Mecha Genre

i read on ANN that obsolete has animation issues. or are those along the lines of "CG then its automatically bad" i watched a complete playthrough of the Shin Sakura Taisen game(YO!!! VIDEOGAMES!!!) it was fine for the most part. the characters were okay too(not the type to pick a waifu. i go by th...

Re: State of the Mecha Genre

recently, the line "MECHA IS DEAD" has been getting quite the attention. what are your takes on this statement? personally it more in decline than actually dead. we do get a new mecha show every season and now(Granbelm is the last original show i can recall) mecha in other mediums should also be co...

Re: Axis Zeon, iconography, and popular support

Glemmy's rebellion therefore seemed not like something that came out of nowhere, but Haman and her court had actually knew and feared about it... I know this is straying from the "mecha and technology" aspect of this thread, but I think there's plenty of evidence that Haman didn't regard Glemy as a...

Re: Gelgoog Successors?

Its hilarious that almost all of these Post OYW Gelgoogs are still slower than then Jaeger, but then again, Jaeger is faster than just about every MS outside of the GP01 FB until F90 era, lol. You get the Dra-C line, a pretty grunt unit with an acceleration of 2.40, the 2.35 Dra-C custom , 2.42 Dra...

Re: Gelgoog Successors?

Being a successor has nothing to do with looks... the exterior design of a mobile suit's armor is largely cosmetic. The Bawoo is a derivative of the Zeta Project, with no real connection at all to the Gelgoog. If we consider internal design, I guess there are no real successor to most of the Zeon M...

Re: Cloning (SPOILERS)

Probably because they saw Neo Zeon try it without much success. And it is not worth the wait. The EF already has many to test on if they wanted to.(See École du Ciel as an example) Given the failure rate of finding NT in clones after they grow up, I'd really rather have grown ups(sort of) be tested...

Re: Cloning (SPOILERS)

It seems odd that something as game changing as Cloning sees so little use in UC. Zeon apparently perfected Newtype cloning, but why are they the only ones to use it? Many people tried to clone Char, so why did nobody in years to come try to clone Amuro? Granted the Federation both fears and hates ...

Re: Gelgoog Successors?

It is sort of strange that Zeon seems to ignore some of their more powerful units(at least outside of sidestories). The Gelgoog was actually the most powerful of Zeon's mast produced MS. I see 2 possible reasons for this. 1) The Gelgoog was introduced late in the war and the design data might not h...

Re: Gundam foils and the drive to heroism

There is that too. But Haman was also having all those weird delusions and distracted by Judau too. Its likely the change in some of the writing compared to Zeta, but Haman lost a lot of her bite in ZZ compared to Zeta. This is not only a problem for Haman, but everything in ZZ. Joke is that Judau ...

Re: Gundam foils and the drive to heroism

She also killed a lot of civilians by dropping a Colony on Dublin and didn't allow people to evacuate either, so that's a pretty moot point with Haman Karn. That is one of the reasons she achieved closest to victory. And she is still the reluctant type pushed into the situation and isn't the delusi...

Re: Weight question?

Well, trust me, most of the data from Gundam do not make too much sense. In fact, about 15 years ago, in a chinese Gundam forum, some one has already estimulated (based on PG Wing Gundam zero model) that a full size gundam will be around 200 Ton even if it was made by plastic. Btw, even if it was U...

Re: Gundam foils and the drive to heroism

find it interesting that despite the differences between their temperament, Jerid and Mashymre shared the same delusion that they were somehow greater than they were. We later saw the same thing with Gyunei, Riddhe and Zabine. This is probably a running theme in U.C. all things considered. If you t...

Re: Digging up that old Gundam mod for Starcraft...

As the title says, I've always been a huge fan of the Gundam Century mod for Starcraft made in the early 2000s until it ceased development; I think the dev got a cease-and-desist from Bandai, but I'm not sure. Anyway, he left it a mite unfinished and with a few bugs and oddities here and there, suc...

Re: Mecha Anime Demographics?

In the 80s it seemed like they could get away with more. Gundam had some rather violent content as did DBZ amongst others, and a fair amount of shows even in the Shonen demographic got away with uncensored nudity on television. I know that for a variety of real life reasons anime was censored incre...

Also, some of the MSV is from machines that were originally planned for the show but didn't appear because the show was cut short. You also see some of those weird looking ones as blue prints for attacking Jaburo.
