Iron Brigade / Trenched!

Gentlepersons, start your ZOINKS bipedal trenches! Anyone else playing this? I'm surprised I couldn't find a thread for it on Mecha Talk. For those who don't know: it's a third person shooter/tower defence hybrid, available on Xbox Live Arcade. This mad scientist is trying to take over the world wit...

Re: Ep. 018: Gankutsuou: The Count of Monte Cristo

Hey guys, great episode as usual, and I really enjoyed having Kristina's voice in the episode. However, my enjoyment of the episode was affected by the way you guys chose to speak about Peppo. I know you're going to tell me this is all in good humour, but I ask you to please hear me out on this, as ...

Re: Epyon's Wings.

Just to clarify, y'all, AMBAC is a Universal Century form of tech. While it is something that can possibly fit into the Wing universe, I don't think any official materials ever stated that AMBAC existed in After Colony MS tech.

Of course, my current girlfriend was already a mecha anime head and had seen some Gundam Wing. But by carefull...

Re: Vandread: To Watch or Not To Watch

What can I say, some of us with vajayjays know sexism when we see it, and would rather have our mecha/scifi anime with as little of it as possible. I mean, come on, if people could make something as complex regarding gender like Macross in the early 80s, why do we need something like Vandread in the...

Re: Vandread: To Watch or Not To Watch

First of all, I'm not in the U.S., but rather in Europe. I watched it circa 2002 or 2003? It's not hindsight: I hated it back then. For the past ten years I've not really been involved with anime fandom. Even if I had been, I'm a big enough girl to have my own opinion. Basically, I started watching ...

Re: Vandread: To Watch or Not To Watch

I have to say I hold a special place in my heart for Vandread. It's a place of darkness and despair, a place of sorrow. It's the section of my heart that lies beyond the door labelled 'HATE'. Vandread has the harem anime crap that I already despise (unless it's subverted in a way that has a nod to t...

Great episode again, all! I keep trying to figure out new Mailbag questions for this or Chaos Theatre, but I've been drawing a bit of a blank recently. Anyway. One thing that I don't get is: why is it pathetic for grown men to like My Little Pony and not Sailor Moon? I'm trying to wrap my head aroun...

Terrific episode you guys! Just a few comments: -Sacred cow: THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS. Gods. The racism evident in the fan reaction to the new Spidey has been quite sickening. Thanks for the straight talk, which is a righteous slap in the face to racist paranoia. Great job. -Who segment: Overall a...

Re: Topic Submission Thread

Have any of you guys played the Wing Commander games? If so, I'd love to hear you talk about them. Re-watching the re-imagined BSG, I've been noticing a lot of similarities in the way both stories are delivered and handled (with obvious differences in quality, themes, and stuff). The way WC4 was fil...

Re: Ship's Bridges Being Target.

If we are to follow UC technology principles, however, it makes absolutely no sense that post-OYW bridges would be placed the way they are. Despite their solid defense systems, a lot of bridges in UC ships keep being placed in the 'tower' configuration, with the bridge at the tip. Consider that by U...

Great show as usual guys! While I enjoyed the troll-kill AGE segment, I really liked the Caprica one. Basically, being a huge BSG fan, I somehow never got too interested in the idea of Caprica. Everything I saw kept reminding me of the 'black market' episodes of BSG, you know, whenever they deal wit...

Re: Another Gundam Incoming

Exactly It doesn't really stray that much. What it does do is flip when the events of Jaburo and Odessa happen. Rather than having White Base land in "New Yark", fly to Africa, then to West Asia and back to South America, the manga has them land in LA (where Garma is now headquartered, follow the c...

Can we not go back into the tired conversation of 'what will make Gundam popular in America again?'. We have had that a dozen times and it leads nowhere.

I hope it is a good, complete adaptation of the manga story. I can't wait to see Yaz's artwork adapted into a high-budget animated production.

Re: list of alternate Gundam factions from games (please hel

The difference between the two Neo Zeon's is the first is that Char rebels against the Zabi Family in the OYW. In the original Gihren's Greed game after you beat the Earth Federation or Zeon you went into part two which include other factions and when you beat them more appeared. Casaval's Neo Zeon...

Okay, I have to say I quite liked what I saw in the video. Off to a good start with the classic 0079 tribute shot (space colony floating alone in space, three Mobile Suits approach and begin an invasion on a largely civilian base). During the trailer we can see a bunch of the supporting cast, and yo...
