Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread Mk II

He will have a son & grandson who will be future leads, and someone's gotta give birth to them after all... My bet is, it's Emily. I thought so too, up until they introduced Yurin. Emily just might become the Fraw Bow of this series and end up with that short chubby dude, who kinda reminds of Hayat...

Re: Episode 015: Redline

In regards to the Sacred cow topic, I couldn't agree more with your sentiments, particularly Pedro's point about some games unethically being sold at full price, despite the content. In particular, I'll refer to MAG. There's no F*cking way I'll pay full price for a multiplayer only game, that lacks ...

Re: The Official Gundam AGE Anime Thread Mk 1

I thought it was a very "meh" episode. I didn't like nor dislike the episode, although I do have a few comments. Firstly, this show DEFINITELY skews towards a younger demograpic, this is evident based on the characters designs, as well as the fact that death in this show onlly seems to be implicit. ...

Re: Dynasty warriors: Gundam 3

You'll clear most fields with a nuke no problem on Normal if I recall correctly. On Hard, you might need 2 or 3 because it doesn't do enough damage. OMG, what??!! Even on hard, the Nuke would have cleared a field, now I need 2 or 3 tries?! The nerfed the hell out of that move, it's the only reason ...

Re: Getting a Playstation Network account: is it a good idea

I would also highly suggest making an account, don't let one incident deter you. What happened to PSN was unfortunate but you should remember that it could virtually happen to any site you use. Like 2NA says; if you're really worried, use fake details and use PSN cards to purchase the goods. If you ...

Re: It will come: the US trailer to Turn-A Gundam arrives

But at the end of the day, the Japanese don't have to read while watching their animation, and other countries' animation doesn't or rarely requires a great deal of reading, as this distracts from the richness and dynamic nature of the visuals. I've been hearing this complaint from people going on ...

Re: Dynasty warriors: Gundam 3

Also, does anyone know if the Turn A can use the Nukes like it could in DWG 2? I love the Turn A and it was my main suit in DWG 2, the chest nukes could clear a field instantly. Yes, it's the same thing. Put on Overdrive and off you go. However, the nuke has been nerfed so it doesn't refill your Mu...

Re: Gundam Extreme Vs coming on PS3

No I don't mean taste, I'm essentially talking about that engine the game runs on( I think I should have said this instead of gameplay). I should start off by mentioning this is foremost an arcade game and arcade games have been superceded by home consoles; thus to an extent outdating arcade games. ...

Finally! The gameplay looks sweet albeit a little outdated especially compared to Gundam Senki and ACE: R. Will definitely be picking this up.

Re: Episode 013: Back to the Future

Perhaps this is an inconsistency or me just missing something, either way it always stands out anytime I see it. In part 3, we first see Clara Clayton as she is about to fall to her death in the ravine, hence its future name, however if she was to die there at that time, how is it that she would lat...

Re: Dynasty warriors: Gundam 3

I thoroughly enjoyed the game despite the fact that they left out the really nice remixed series themes. Also, I think it was just downright lazy of them to not even put in the storylines for anything but the original Mobile Suit Gundam. I'm going to chalk both of these issues up to Bandai/Namco no...

Re: Thoughts on Macross II

Only 23 minutes? Is that including the 1st episode? I'm sure is saw 50 mins on the timeline. If that's the case, I may get around to watching it within the week.

Re: Extra - SSATM Review 003: Summer Comic Book Movie Round-

Unfortunately I haven't seen any of these movies, but it was great to hear the FTS cast discuss their thoughts on them. I'm glad Green Lantern tanked, that movie looked horrible! The story looked weak, acting wooden and CG: not particularly impressive.
Hope you guys keep bringing out episodes.

Re: Thoughts on Macross II

I've only seen the first 20 or so minutes of the 1st episode so I'm not too well informed, but judging what from what I saw I knew I wasn't going to be a fan. The voice acting was HORRIBLE; I don't know how I'd deal with that for 6 hourly long episodes. And the protagonist seemed a little to weak wi...

Re: Dynasty warriors: Gundam 3

I've been playing DWG 2 trying to collect all the trophies(Currently at 80% with 122 hours of gameplay), and as much as I enjoy the hack and slash element, I think I've had enough for one lifetime, I don't think I'll be getting DWG 3 anymore. I recently was going to sell my DWG2 since I now have DWG...

Re: The look of the Macross Zentradi

But I'm sure you'd agree that speaking simply aesthetically, the Zentradi are a visually very definable race of aliens; a case couldn't occur where you'd mistake one for being human. In Frontier however, not so much. Also, I'm focusing more on the look here, not much personality. If you're focusing...

Re: The look of the Macross Zentradi

Even in SDF I'd hesitate to call all Zentraedi "brooding, debatably hideous creatures;" that would seem to describe only a couple of the Zentraedi, and specifically the ones who reject human culture. The ones who embrace it are shown as fairly happy, sympathetic characters. Guld is pretty clearly p...

I'll start off by saying I've only seen SDF Macross, DYRL, Plus, Zero, 1st ep of 7, 1st 20 mins of Macross 2(LOL) and am currently on the 1st few episodes of Frontier. Forgive me if this has already been answered in supplementary material but how exactly did the aesthetics of the Zentradi transcend ...
