Re: Tupac hologram 'live' performance at Coachella 2012

Looks like Coachella and other concerned parties went through and made sure all videos of the performance were purged from Youtube. Too bad; it was pretty cool, and you almost, almost forget you're looking at a generated hologram. Definitely worth seeing. Tupac's always been one of the few rap acts ...

Re: GM types used in "0080 War In The Pocket"

It's really a minor point, but the first we see of Side 6 is in the original series, and the CGI colony we see in CCA is Sweetwater, which isn't located inside any of the designated Sides ;) Overall, though, mecha design in 0080 tended to draw from both CCA and Zeta, with an apparent effort to creat...

Re: GM types used in "0080 War In The Pocket"

That's the impression I got; the guys doing MS Era weren't all that worried about continuity or whatever and just gave us cool-looking artwork. I could see how it could give rise to the 0080 revision myth among confused latter-day fans with no access to any publications or promotional materials exce...

Re: Episode 28 - Passage to Tartarus

- AEUG 4th Squadron Vicinity - - Dervish Team 3 - Wes swore. The Black Tiger had effortlessly deflected his beam saber strike and then disengaged. But now it looked like the Titans were falling back anyway. Trask was moving to regroup. The armor on Wes’s shoulders and upper torso was mangled and bu...

Re: GM types used in "0080 War In The Pocket"

The idea that the 0080 suits were originally meant to be new artistic interpretations later retconned to be new MS variants is an old fan myth. Don't feel too bad for assuming it to be true - I think we've all absorbed it unquestioningly at some point ;) In the case of the GM units, they can't reall...

Re: Ten-hut!

Already explained my vote to Fritz and Red, but really, going the historical route would allow us to focus on our characters and whatever localized conflict we want to concentrate on. If we try for some kind of alternate history, then the altered global politics of it would intrude on our own story ...

Without a word between the two veterans, Renard’s Gaza-C slid behind, “above”, and to the left of Ball’s. Ball angled his approach ...

Re: UC Federation Gundam development tree

You categorize the GM[E] as 0083, but I'm p sure it only shows up in 08th MS Team. Also check out this thread and this one for some useful info on that kind of stuff. Probably are older threads helpful threads somewhere deep in there. The first one I linked suggests Gundam units 4-7 should maybe bra...
