Well, at least I could import this...Ugh, keeping up with this series is expensive. I might hold out for a localization.

Altus, or Xseed, or someone I can't remember localized Arcana Heart 3, and put it on PSN rather than a full retail release. It's possible someone could do that with this. If so I'd be willing to check it out.

And I want some full sized better daughter mickey, but I dont see that happening any time soon!!

No it is a bit strange though, still I dont entirely mind it.  So far every installment that ive played of this series (the two GBA and the DS ones) were awesome fun, especially the GBA ones, and anything more like that I would love.  Giant Robots make me a happy Alex.

Dammit. And here I was hoping for an OG3 announcement.

Also WHAT THE FUCK is Flickerei Geist doing outside of Real Robot Regiment!?! Or that Branpesto even remembered Real Robot Regiment to begin with!? Also also is that Ing Egret in that pic with that Hucky put together with Duct Tape and Super Glue? What....?

On the plus side Katina and Russel finally get some personalized Gespies (also Kai but he's always Gespy Kicking things anyways), and it looks like we'll be seeing some Alpha 2 Ibis and Tsugumi as well.

That said, it'd be awesome if it could come out here. (Also if they manage to include one of those Huckebein's in a hat from the anime.)


Edit:
http://www.siliconera.com/2011/05/17/the-2nd-super-robot-taisen-og-will-land-on-playstation-3/

Holy shit, it is Ing! Also SRW D represent! Plus it's not a rehash of OG2 but something else.

Post by: Alisha on May 18, 2011, 04:41:07 AM
yeah that collectors edition costs more than a new ps3. also for all intents and purposes this is OG3 since OGS retconned OG1 and 2. and so this is OGS2 or dai 2 ji OGS.

Welp. This confirms that yes D, MX, RRR, and that manga with Ing in it are contributing to plot for the game.

Also, a THIRD Dynamic Guardian General!? How the fuck is it going to join the other two's combo attack? Does the horse really need wings or something? Or is it just going to provide their equivalent of the R-Gun or an even bigger and more ridiculous sword? Or perhaps both. (Ten Thousand Feet of Steel getting all Pegasus on all their asses!)

Jinrai is an AI controled robot created as a failsafe to destroy DGG1 and 2.
fun fact in Alpha 3 dairaioh's final attack is called Jinrai. Dairaioh is also sporting a scarf that could be a ripped piece of Jinrai's cape.

Yeah, that kinda happens when drawing from the depths of a 20 year old series that's seen dozens of games across a dozen systems that, with but three exceptions, has never seen the light of day outside of Japan. Also this game is the continuation of the OG series, not a rehash (i.e. Lee already took that drill to the face). The only old ground that's being covered are the OG plots from @2, A, D, and a bunch of other stuffs, while also adding a bit of content on it's own (Katrina and Russel getting their own specialized Gespies for instance (and Kai gets a new one too aside from the Gespy-S)).

Title: Re: super robot wars original generations 2 for ps3
Post by: Aeolus on June 20, 2011, 07:32:42 PM
That's what I meant by them covering SRW A. If you look closely enough you'll see not only the Angelg but also the Soulgain. Those are the two primary mechs of the original protagonists of SRW A, Lamia Loveless and Axel Almer. The plot of A had Axel lose his memory before the events of the game, hence his protag status in A, OGSaga EF Exceed, and now most likely this game OGs2.

Although if I'm remembering A correctly, they've already covered those events in OG2, so they may just be there as part of OGs2's contributions to the plot instead.

you made a typo you meant to say R not D. also the anime is not cannon. the game follows the events of OGS version of OG2 and OGG. most of OG2 gba is still relevant however in OGS OG2 lee did not die. expect him to be in the not titans. aka GS.

I don't know about that. 2:12 and 2:39 in that trailer seems to suggest otherwise.

As for Lee, I did not know that. I was aware that there were changes made to some of the plot and characters to accommodate the new characters as well as to improve some of the battles and events from OG1 & 2 like Wodan helping out with the Machine Children after getting his shit kicked in by Sanger.

^And the pics apparently.


Anyways... http://www.siliconera.com/2012/09/11/learn-new-abilities-from-fallen-robots-in-the-2nd-super-robot-taisen-og/

What!? I mean this sounds suspiciously like the same 'down baddies; get PP' system that's been in place since at least SRW4, but I guess it could be similar to SRWW's system of enemies holding onto consumables that permanently confers an extra level &| skills like In-fight/Gunfight/Prevail/SP Up/ect.... to the pilot of your choice.

Either way, hopefully it won't be too needlessly complicated.
Title: Re: super robot wars original generations 2 for ps3
Post by: Mickeymac92 on September 14, 2012, 10:49:02 AM
That's the only thing that's got me worried about this game now...
Title: Re: super robot wars original generations 2 for ps3
Post by: mjrpgfan on September 15, 2012, 03:30:21 AM
It does seem a bit overly complicated. Here's a better description of it (http://www.saint-ism.com/2012/09/a-closer-look-at-original-generations-2s-ability-slot-system/). It doesn't make sense to me why an ability only activates if you have 3 of the same type of part equipped. There should still be some kind of bonus for equipping 1 or 2 parts. Otherwise, since there's no point to equipping 1 or 2 parts, they might as well give each pilot/robot one slot to equip one part, since it's technically the same thing as having 3 slots that require 3 parts to have any effect. Might be missing something but that's how I understand it right now.
Title: Re: super robot wars original generations 2 for ps3
Post by: Aeolus on September 15, 2012, 06:06:18 AM
Great. So not only have they made it more needlessly complicated than necessary but that Katina and Russel aren't actually getting new machines but frames for the old ones.

Actually I'm sort of okay with these. I can just about wrap my head around the 'why' of those multiple skill slots and sticking with frames will at least help stem the power level creep going on (since OGs1 and OGG were pretty bad about that).

Anyways, my take on the multiple skill slots is mostly to encourage splitting up and reforming Twin formations during battle. Say that you have a particular ace that you want to fully take out the boss but of course you'll need to build some Will to use your huge combination attack. However your other high damage dealing ace burns through ammo too quickly or can't dodge for shit (or doesn't want to get hit to avoid Will penalties/ect...) but you still need to build Will for that combination attack. So you start by pairing the two with different partners with skills that compliment their Will building goals (or maybe movement's the issue/ect...), then once you've achieved your desired state you split those two groups apart and reform as one new group (and a dedicated support group with the leftovers) to achieve MAXIMUM DAKKA!!!! Since you only have a limited number of slots you can stick one or two copies of whatever you plan on needing with the aces and have your support carry the rest of the necessary loadout for the Will building ritual (or whatever/ect...) as well as support boosting options for later so that they don't become deadweight afterwards.

In other words its trying to avoid what FE11 did with its Double mechanic where you received bonuses based upon a combination of stats, class, and support level. In effect you're grooming half your active team into support bots for the other half over the course of the entire main game (although with all the grinding you can do in that game and the unlimited A level supports you can make (only one S ranked support though for marriage/breeding reasons) you can easily build a bunch of support options into anybody as well as converting your support bots into frontliners that you can switch back and forth with to abuse things like Lightning Speed or Cry skills).

In the end I think that the three required skills is just for flexibility purposes given that you could either give two units up to four bonuses or one unit up to three out of six bonuses spread across six different partners (provided there are enough skills to go around). Won't know how it goes until we can play it (without importing or resorting to illicit means which I suspect will be between a cold day in hell to never given all the bullshit and general lack of interest that surrounds this series).
Title: Re: super robot wars original generations 2 for ps3
Post by: mjrpgfan on September 15, 2012, 07:13:52 AM
Do we know if they're allowing units to break up into singles and regroup? That would make sense but I must have missed that info.

Do we know if they're allowing units to break up into singles and regroup? That would make sense but I must have missed that info.

I think I saw it go by somewhere, and even then it was like that in OGs1 anyways since you had to assemble them on the map to begin with (which made the feature relatively worthless outside of MAXIMUM DAKKA!!! since you were diminishing your allotted manpower for a moderate boost to a single attack's damage output).

Either way, if they don't, then this system is really fucking retarded.
Title: Re: super robot wars original generations 2 for ps3
Post by: mjrpgfan on September 17, 2012, 10:35:14 AM
These were the reasons I was given on srwg: "Because the pilot and the mech have built-in skill parts, too. Like how Latouni has 2 shooting up part, and all you need is to give her another one."

"The point is to make the twin pilot thing more appealing. Using only a single unit, you can have at best 2 skills activated to a single character. Using the Twin System, you can now double that to 4 skills for activated on that character, and another character because they are in a twin setup and sharing the burden of the three parts spread across them."

I've finished my 2nd z2-2 no upgrade/pp playthrough. Working on editing, encoding, and uploading the remaining videos. Until then I've got a playthrough log on gfaqs (http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/657877-dai-2-ji-super-robot-taisen-z-saisei-hen/63848827).

On the other hand it could mean a Cybuster/Valsione upgrade (or at least open up the Prana option for them).

Of course you can't really have The Lord of Elemental without Shu and last I checked he kind of died during OG1 (not like this ever stopped alternate versions from taking over the bad guy spot).

I suppose the question is just how much of the game is dedicated to EX/La Gaias stuff. I'm not big into SRW plots, but if I have to fight in the same area against the same enemies for most of the game, it'll get boring. I like variety.
Title: Re: super robot wars original generations 2 for ps3
Post by: Aeolus on October 30, 2012, 07:14:41 PM
If its anything like other OG games then they'll probably dedicate an arc to it like they're going to probably do with every other new game's plot before turning the whole thing into a massive clusterfuck of villains, upgrades, and plots.

To be fair though, Z2-2's prologue was a bunch of series' season 1's finales playing out one after the other. You'd be hard pressed to find anything that isn't underwhelming compared to that.

I don't know much about the plot but they could have done more gameplay wise. I was expecting a bit more than totally flat terrain and the scenario auto-ending after firing at grunts for a few turns. The z2-2 prologue was cool because it was immediately interesting to me gameplay wise.

I don't know. I thought it demonstrated supports well by having a support bot/spirit battery/Gundam Hucklebein duct taped to a battleship hanging around patching up Ibis after her failures to dodge the weakest of grunts in the seat of what is probably one of the more dodgy Reals of the prior games.

Either way it's at least better than Ryusei's route in OG1 where its just Elzam soloing less than a handful of Aerogater bugs out in space in his Trombe.

Well I mostly play SRW for gameplay, as I do most tactics games, so that's what I base my opinions off of. I like games like Fallout: New Vegas if I want to get involved in plot and characters as I get to take a direct role in altering how things play out. I thought the Z2-1 and Z2-2 first scenarios were ok. Pretty sad that someone gets attacked for basing their opinion on different aspects of a game than its plot or characters.

I'd like to see another gameplay trailer showing a later scenario.

Stand by for ridiculous voice acting.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nnxHgxB2VJw

The second stage gameplay is up. The mooks continue to be a joke, Cybuster's still ridiculous, and the player flubs the Skill Point by sending a low willed, unpaired Rein Weisritter up against the boss instead of the maxed willed Cybuster with Cosmo Nova at the ready.

I liked the 2nd gameplay trailer more than the first. There was more going on (reinforcements, enemy counts, terrain).

But I think it does show that 2nd OG will likely be an easy/casual game like Z2-2 was. Oh well.. I'll still have fun with it.

if its anything like L wich also had pair system. enemy counts will be huge by stage 10 due to every non boss enemy unit being twinned.
anyways my order is on preparing so i may recieve it before the 29th.

I say go for it. There will be plenty of info available at the Akurasu Wiki (http://akurasu.net/wiki/Super_Robot_Wars). You can go there right now and get familiar with some of the skills and seishins that will likely return. If you need help ask here or gamefaqs.. plenty of people will be playing it that can help.

Impressions I've been hearing thus far include....
- 61 chapters long.
- 2 route splits.
- Secret weapons for the Masoukishin crew.
- Roar and Axel are mutually exclusive.
- Which likely means that Afimi is only going to show up with Axel around.
- And this supposedly means that Roar gets Banchobot in compensation.
- This is like watching the OG Enterprise light up the night sky in Star Trek III (http://i.imgur.com/rGwop.jpg) (spoilers obviously).
- Also I like how they handled some of the 'chieveos.

As for some of the new gameplay mechanics....
- It seems that I called it in regards to those equipable skills that require having three of a kind to get their effect requiring a high level of sperg to manage on more than one person.
- The twin twins attack (or whatever the hell its called) has a mess of requirements including the leading attacker having the Leadership skill (unbuyable), requires at least 140 will for every participant, costs 10 will to each participant to use, and can only use attacks with an F symbol next to it, which obviously means that everybody needs at least one attack with an F symbol.
Title: Re: super robot wars original generations 2 for ps3
Post by: mjrpgfan on December 01, 2012, 02:39:47 PM
I'm on scenario 16 and almost every scenario has been easy, boring filler. Move forward, slap around some grunts, then kick an easy bosses ass. I dunno what they're doing with the plot but the gameplay isn't up to par. I'm hoping the game heats up soon because 16 scenarios of grunt filler is not cool. The animations are amazing but can't carry the game on their own.

On the ability slot system, I've kept it simple and stuck with 3 of the same on one pilot or robot. I haven't bothered trying to mix and match as it doesn't seem like there's much benefit so far, and as you noted it can get complicated. I'm not too hot on the system.. overall it's pretty ignorable so far.

I haven't managed to pull off a "maximum break", partly because the scenarios so far end too quickly, partly because I haven't had the need to set one up yet. Fleeing bosses retreat at very low (7-8k) HP values so it's rarely a struggle to do enough damage.

I've got a playthrough log up on gamefaqs (http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/929920-dai-2-ji-super-robot-taisen-og/64790429). It's a pretty easy SRW/tactics game overall, although it's difficult to fully grasp the game mechanics without Japanese/SRW knowledge. I really doubt it will see an English release.

After the first 16 filler stages, things heat up a bit, but it doesn't get going until halfway through. Too many filler stages imo. The animations are amazing though.

That said, I'm curious to see how Branpresto handles Trailblazer.


Edit: http://gematsu.com/2012/12/super-robot-wars-ux-announced-for-3ds

Hatsumi Miku Virtua-On and Linebarrels of Smug as well. Just depresses me more that Heroman is debuting in this one instead of a good SRW.

Sangoku Gundam and Trailblazer in the same one? wut

Those are like polar opposites in setting, tone, and...like, everything. I know that applies to a lot of SRW, but still. Wat.

I'm pretty much always more of a handheld guy so I really hope they have voices in this one.
Title: Re: super robot wars original generations 2 for ps3

At least Setsuna will have some other fellow Gundams to talk to at least. But yeah, when your best Gundam is an SD Gundam you're officially scraping the bottom of the barrel. At least Dunbine and Tobikage are getting back into a new SRW (been at least a decade since Impact).

Also: http://www.siliconera.com/2012/12/12/super-robot-taisen-ux-trailer-shows-off-demonbane-macross-f-and-more/

At this point, I almost want that confirmed series list to be correct and feature Kishin Houkou Demonbane instead of Zamna Taisei Demonbane just to see how they'll handle the shenanigans that is Crisis of Infinite Demonbanes.

UX looks interesting.. I might get a JP 3DS to play it. I love puzzle robo and the animation quality looks fine to me. Only problem is they still cost $229 at play-asia.

I'm doing a video playthrough of 2nd OG Ex-hard mode. Check the playlist here. (http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLi40GY1ofTAegOqJ1n6To-_o7CJHjJ902) Animations are occasionally turned on.

I don't recognize too many series in UX, but at least mazinkaiser's in it. Was hoping for full metal panic or tekkaman blade again. As for OG2, I just got Sanger and up to stage 16. Just curious if the skills do anything while not equipping 3 of the same on a person.

Yeah, I would've loved Tekkaman and/or FMP in a voiced SRW. I'm more a fan of the old school mecha shows so the more recent SRW games have been less appealing to me. I guess I should get around to actually watching some of them.

Looking forward to UX along with my new imported Japanese 3DS. It cost $330 US after shipping, but if the 3DS gets more good import games it will be worth it. I wanted to import a 3DS XL but that cost about $80 more so I had to settle with the cheaper one.

I finished 2nd OG ex-hard, and finished the video playthrough log as well.

Details of the game's double system. Looks like they're trying to balance partners by giving all single units 'attack again'. Sounds potentially gamebreaking right there.

Also goddamn, it looks like the Macross Quarter didn't receive so much as a touch up compared to what was used in L. Talk about phoning it in.

Wait, has MKR ever been in SRW? I picked up SRT PS3 on a whim thanks to a present and it's enjoyable. Very relieved how import-friendly it is(in that the gameplay is very simple). No clue what's going on, but that applied to the official localizations of OG1&2 as well, so no loss.

Nope, and neither has Escaflowne nor Sakura Taisen or Xenoglossia. Of course I say this because, as of this game, Hatsume Miku has been included (piloting a Hatsume Miku robot no less), and between that and a visual novel inclusion, all bets are effectively off. Of course, who the hell wants to see Hatsume Miku in an SRW? The other ones sure, but Vocaloids?

The best casting choice made so far for UX has been the inclusion of an SD Gundam series alongside SeeD Destiny and that awful Trailblazer movie for maximum Gundam becomings and Seed Destiny trolling (that and the possibility of a "Crisis of infinite Demonbanes" scenario).

I can understand Sakura Taisen, that would be directly competing with Sega's franchise(well, kind of irrelevant now), but sad about MKR. Mechs were a pretty small part of the series though. All you get out of the Saturn RPG is a shmup final level.

Goddamn did that cut-in for Dancouga suck.
In fact, there are an awful lot of cut-ins.
The Gundams suck.
Apparently AWotTB isn't the only 00Gundam thing they're throwing into this (that or they were the Origi....goddammit Branpresto's B-Team).
It's a travesty that this is Heroman's first and probably only outing.

Adding this for completionist sake.

Calling it now, the Bargain Bin Gundam Pilot Original's mid season game upgrade is going to be getting the Least Uninteresting Original's mech after he disappointingly kicks the bucket. A far more interesting development would've involve the Old Man Original taking over the leading Original role while the BBGPO goes on to become Lockon's second identical twin brother.

But that would require an SRW game that doesn't suck.

Drat DLC only.

Aside from that though, this has my interest. They're reusing the SRW Neo engine again for a brand new SRW game. Fuck yes!

Also, lol at all those Real series. Its not quite like the complete inverse of Neo's roster of nothing but Supers as far as the eye can see with the OG characters bringing the only thing that could be classified as a Real, but it still feels like a near complete inverse never the less.

Finally getting around to posting a UX trip report to state that I fucking called it. Old guy goes away, for blue neon lights gundam to get handed down the boring protagonist with its upgrade being the OG chick's bird mech backpack. The bola attack is the only thing worth a damn about the whole mess and even that feels a bit silly/cheap.

The rest of UX is mostly a wash given the excessive use of cutins, the occasionally butchered theme song, the lackluster UI, the boring stage design, and the even more boring DLC (have a stage where you play as nothing but female pilots which means maybe Dancouga Nova, Klan-Klan, a bunch of support lackeys, and the 00 Baseship or a stage where you play the badguys). That said the Linebarrel guys did alright, Heroman got almost entirely screwed over (although I will give them props for this (http://i.imgur.com/4JJd1uf.jpg) which is probably the best thing out of the game), they couldn't get Vocaloid Miku to play Hatsumi Miku, Demonsbane managed to get its "Crisis of Infinite Demonsbane" attack (unless it didn't (I am unfortunately not familiar enough to know for sure) in which case, holy crap, Branpresto, quick, make an SRW including this alongside, Ideon, Great Zeromyer, the ending of Gurran Lagann, the Getter Emperor, and whatever other giant robot series that culminate with powerlevels in the "Screw the universe! I've got a giant motherfucking robot!!!" area), and everybody else did worse here than normal (still need to check out how SD Sengoku Gundam did).

And now you guys know why I didn't just make a new thread for SRW UX.

This is like 4 months late, but Escaflowne actually was in an SRW on the Wonderswan or something. Hasn't been seen since then. I don't think the show was particularly popular in Japan so that probably contributes to it. We'll be seeing SEED, 00, Code Geass and Gurren Lagaan for a long time to come I'm guessing.

Cuz we just got OGs2 and I want to see how Branpresto will handle Gurren Lagann's ending (i.e. will the TTGL have a Final Izuma Special combo attack between itself, Gunbuster, and Diebuster, or will Chirco's Scopedog and Jiron's Xabungle be rollerblading/stomping across galaxies alongside other low-tech, gas-powered, rust-buckets?).

They just announced it and already the cast list is what the hell inducing. Higurashi? What the fuck!? Di Gi Charat and Super Sonico are pretty lame as well. Dream Hunter Rem is pretty much by far and away the best series on that list. That and the male lead means that unless this has armor break mechanics used in the Queen's Blade games I'm ready to give this a pass despite the Satoshi Urushihara designed character.

Also; number of confirmed Rie Kugimiya voiced character count thus far: 3 (With a bit more discretion, this game could've been renamed Super Riekugimiya Wars or SRW for short.)

I'm glad they're reusing the systems they made in NEO. Felt like it was one of the few times they were trying some interesting things with the gameplay, but they went and stuck it in a game few people payed attention to.

L Gaim, 08th MS and 0080...haven't seen those guys in a while. Only thing missing I can think of is Victory. I like that there's a good mix of both old and new stuff. Feels like they tend to lean towards remakes in recent years (Jeeg/Mazinger/Zeta/etc). OYW is cool too, it's always kinda weird to see them beside later UC though.

Given that's it's episodic, dunno how importing it is going to work.
Title: Re: super robot wars topic
Post by: mjrpgfan on July 20, 2013, 10:02:11 PM
Quick Super Robot Wars OE impressions:

It's decent, promising, but needs a lot of work. Missions are mostly filler with few interesting scripted events. It's passable, but I'm sure they can do better, and I'd rather have quality not quantity. I hope the missions going forward are better than Ch 1.

Map size and unit counts are too small imo. I suspect the unit count and map size is hindered by the PSP's hardware. It's easy to get slowdown even with a few units on screen. I would really love to see this on Vita instead of PSP with larger maps, more units, less slowdown, etc.

The UI is missing features found in 2nd OG and Z2-2, which slows down combat speed. Menus have transition effects and load times that further slow things down. Some of this can be disabled in the options screen, but it doesn't help much. This is  disappointing after the better UI/combat speed of 2nd OG and Z2-2.

The microtransactions and repetable missions do encourage grinding, but the game still keeps track of your turn counts. It also keeps track of both your # of unique missions cleared and your total # cleared, allowing you to tell if the player has repeated a mission. With those three stats you can tell how many missions were repeated and the average turncount, which is a bit better than no stat tracking at all.

+interesting NEO mechanics
+better stats tracking
+best animations of any 3D SRW
+lots of series represented

-far too many easy/boring filler missions
-slow combat speed, too many menu transition effects and load times
-missing UI features that were in 2nd OG and Z2-2
-small levels and unit counts, low difficulty, combat can feel repetitive
-microtransactions and grinding encouraged

Finished all 35 missions of Chapter 1 (including 3 skirmishes).

Conditions: No upgrades/parts equipped, low turn counts, no allies defeated
Results: 114 turns/35 out of 35 missions

I'm about 15 missions in and I have basically the same impressions as you. I really want to like the game mechanics that NEO introduced, but the slow gameplay really gets on my nerves. And while they've improved their 3D graphics, they're still pretty bad.

Also I don't know if this changes later on, but agile units are really bad in this game. Unless you stack Focus and Flash all the time you'll basically always be sitting at a 80% dodge rate or something around that. It helps that SP recharges the way it does, but I don't feel there's much of a difference in the dodging abilities of supers anyway.

Also they're keeping the tradition of giving Dancouga lame music. I want Burning Love again.

Lots of love for 08th MS in this game. Shiro does crazy damage to ground units, Sanders has that map attack, and they even have Eledore's hovertruck be a very useful support unit. The only weak unit from them is Karen, who does alright as a backline artillery. Sucks that they made them useless for space battles though.

Knew I should've made a proper post instead of editing my old one (didn't want to triple post though).

Anyways, I'm not unless they do something crazy like bring in Valzacard as that motherfucker is HUGE (granted it is mostly made of a carrier). This is like those Gundam Arcade 3rd person battlers that plays like Virtua-On meets Armored Core.

Also, lol at a Fairloin and Russel getting confirmed already.

I played UX, MK3, and OE and thought they were all mediocre or bad compared to classics like the Alpha and Z series.

That heroine wars gameplay looks rather bland. Seems like it's safe to skip unless you really like the cast.

Looking forward to the next "epic" SRW like Z3.

Z3 announced. For both PS3 and PSVita. A lot of returners from the previous Z titles announced so far with the most notable inclusions being Gundam Unicorn (not surprising being recent and showing up alongside Char's Counterattack), Gunbuster (first time since Alpha 3), Full Metal Panic (not sure if Fumoffu! or Second Raid will make it), Aquarion EVOL (since its a debut, they'll probably play orz straight), and one of the Rebuild of Evagelion movies (not exactly sure which one; hell, I'm not even sure the final movie is out yet).

Notable absences: Gundam AGE (ha!), Gundam SEED (although I wouldn't put it past them for a latter announcement), and Eureka Seven AO (again, ha!).
Title: Re: super robot wars topic
Post by: Hathen on December 24, 2013, 09:55:57 AM
Good thing they left out that garbage that was AO. I actually don't think AGE would be that bad in an SRW since it had lots of fun mechs to play with (and crazy Grandpa Flit), but it probably wouldn't fit that well into Z at this point given the backstory. But goddamn that lineup already has me sold- FMP voiced in an SRW, Gunbuster again, and Unicorn? Take my money.

So much for not having SEED representation (then again, having Code Geass R2's Jesus Kururugi hanging out with SEED Destiny's Jesus Yamato should make for some entertaining interplay, nevermind the people who are actually worth watching like Chirico, Heero, Sousuke, and Setsuna getting together to play poker, even Roger Smith wouldn't stand a chance against that must stoic, especially if R-Dorothy jumps in....oh goddammit).

Either way, Oh Hell YES!!! Having Tetsujin 28 (even 80s Gigantor is still incredibly oldskool), the VOTOMs' trashcans on wheels (i.e. Scopedogs), FMP's walkers (which invariably means Bonta-kun), Dai-Guard (the 9 to 5 everyday salaryman's giant robot of choice), Big O (the negotiator's clod hopper of choice), and Godmars (featuring the best of low budget animation) along side Rebuild of Eva (fuck the world, we have giant robots), Gunbuster (fuck the galaxy, we have giant robots), and at least up to Arc Gurren Lagann (fuck the universe, we have giant robots), not to mention everything in between. This just needs Xabungle (diesel powered robots) and something like Braiger (space car) plus squads like Z1 again (so that I can stick Gunbuster and somebody like Arc Gurren Lagann or Aquarion on any flight enabled unit as squad leader to get those two behemoths up in the air).

Of course, if Siliconera is to be believed, then this is just part 1 of Z3. So we probably wont get the 30 Armageddon Pileup that Alpha 3 had (at least until Z3-2).

A bunch of reasons, namely, stuff like licenses expiring or suddenly becoming prohibitively expensive (Giant Robo being the most infamous case), or because new shows come out between games and thus need to recycle roster space instead of turning the game into an Alpha 3 roster bloat situation.

Additionally it might just not work for the plot in cases of post apocalyptic series like Xabungle, Turn A/X Gundams, or Gurren Lagann when you have shows like Code Geass, the umpteen million other Gundams, and FMP among others running around (unless you want to imagine the Tuatha de Danaan pulling a play out of Xenogears' playbook and become a sand submarine (or would that be referred to as a subterrain, or should we all just agree that sand seas are geological clusterfucks and call it a day?) while the highschool the series takes place in is sitting in the middle of a dome city along with the Britannia Empire and the Federation's base at Jaburo (which is situated in the middle of a dense jungle)(and granted they could be separate dome cities but its still pretty stupid and cumbersome)).

And on that note, so far, I'm digging the new FMP unit animations. This is gonna be a great game.

So, I went to GameFAQs, and asked the nice people over there about 2ndOG for the PS3. See, I'm interested in the game, but I wasn't sure if I should play the other games before playing this one. I'd like to just play this one, but I just wasn't sure. Unfortunately, I didn't get much of an answer. At the least, they just said, 'If you don't want to play the previous games, then don't play them', to... well, the point is, I asked there to get some real advice on just what to do in this situation, and I wasn't getting it, so I'm asking it here. Should I play the previous OG games, or is it alright to just start with this one? I'm just not sure if it's designed for both oldtimers, and people new to the OG subseries. That's what's got me.

I'd say just start with 2nd OG unless you really care about the plot stuff. I've actually played some of older ones in the series recently and the lack of some of the mechanics annoyed me, 2nd OG's a lot more newb friendly. As for Z3, pretty hype now that we almost certainly get hd bonta kun. Wish they'd put in tekkaman blade and g gundam in a future installment. AGE would've been nice too, mebbe do a rebuild of evangelion once the last movie comes out.

It depends. As mentioned before, if you don't mind missing out on earlier plot developments then just skip to OG2nd. That said, the one advantage to playing OG 1 and OG 2 is that they're available in English which makes getting used to the general structure and controls of the games and the series much easier. That said, if you're looking towards playing OG2nd then I might suggest OGS instead since its OG1 and OG2 in one game but with more modern mechanics and much better graphics, and you'll either make due without the plot since its in Japanese or you'll be able to read up on it from the same source. Another alternative is to play one of the other translated SRW games to get a feel for the main series mechanics instead like Alpha Gaiden or J (I would highly recommend avoiding SRW3 or anything earlier as those games are highly antiquated).

I appreciate the advice, but for starters, I do have experience with the series, as I've played Z2. (Well, Hakai-Hen; my PSP got busted beyond repair before I could play Sasai-hen, so I'll probably have to read the storyguide for Sasai-hen before Z3 comes out.:P I have a PS3, so I can play that one.) And I don't have a region-modified PS2, so no OGS for me. Anyway, I think I'll just get the game, but I'm going to look into something either way. I've heard there's an OG anime, one for each of the first two games, and I'll see if those are worth checking out. But to be honest, I'm not that thrilled; I've heard that they were directed by the same guy who Gravion, which I did not like. But I guess I'll just have to see. Either way, thanks for the advice guys. :)

So I just got the game (2ndOG) for 30 bucks. It might take a while to get here, but for that price, and for how much mileage I'm likely to get out of it, (I got over 200 hours out of Hakai-Hen, no joke,) I definitely think it'll be worth it. ;) I'm also reading the 'Record of ATX' manga, which is supposed to cover the first game from Kysouke's point of view. I've read the first volume, and it's no masterpiece, but still pretty enjoyable. I'll keep reading and see how it goes. :)

I would highly recommend against playing OE. They screwed the pooch over on that one in a large variety of ways, not the least of which involved releasing the game in "Chapters" and balancing the game's progression curve on repetitious grinding in between "Chapter" releases.

Impressions and details about Z3-1 are coming in.

My initial impressions were slightly off the mark on this one. This is very much Supra Robo Gakuken (minus the CCG bullshit). Chapter 18 and your team is still crowding around in school with most of the characters in the same classroom.

As for the original, three things have stood out to change my impression of it. A) It's nowhere near as long-winded or clumsy as Z2's Brasta as it sports much more quicker and stylish attacks. B) It seems to have a much nicer looking Super Robot alt mode, though outside of a brief cameo in Chapter 19 it hasn't shown up as of Chapter 32. And C) it's cockpit looks to have been lifted wholesale from Godannar.

That said, the second original unit is just a goddamn walking pile of spikes and looks unimpressive as hell for now.

Chapter 32? The game's only been out for two days; are you speedrunning? (Seriously, it takes me anywhere from 40 minutes to over 2 hours just to beat a single mission in these games. I don't really understand how you could get that far in such a short amount of time.)

Code: [Select]
I've been sporadically watching someone livestream it. So far he's made it up to chapter 54.(http://i.somethingawful.com/forumsystem/emoticons/emot-ssh.gif)

So the bad news is that all that Gunbuster has going for it is Noriko, the bugs, and the Gunbuster itself, which is a shame because a sizable chunk of this game was spent in a classroom setting which Gunbuster could've easily been fitted into alongside FMP, EVA, Endless Waltz, Code Geass, and so on instead of being dropped into your lap half way through the game and kinda just there for the rest of it. On the plus side, barring any route shenanigans that I may have missed, SEED Destiny got an even shorter stick which is hilarious since the one stage that was set in ORB ended up getting hijacked by the Originals and some of the OO goobers.

I really can't post impressions on the handling of the plot or the cast interactions due to the whole "Japanese illiteracy". At least I can guess based upon series familiarity and its been fairly entertaining for the most part (although a large part of the this is hiding in the D-Trader section which is nigh unto incomprehensible for me; except for the Bonta-kun sketch).

We've got some conformation of the new roster. Gundam X and Turn A are back as well as Daitarn/Zambot 3 and Aquarion.

We're also getting Diebuster (come on Final Inazuna Kick), EVA 3.00, more Votoms and the (more interesting?) FMP stuff, while Gargantua is the left-field newbie pick (would've preferred Rinne no Lagrange, but I suppose I should just be thankful for getting a couple of stages where Getter 3 will have a chance to shine instead).

Also disappointed in the lack of Xabungle (would've liked to have seen a cosmic scale ICBM Toss, but that ship has probably sailed at this point). Thankfully, we're also not getting that awful Eureka Seven AO or any Gundam AGE horseshit. Don't know how I feel about not getting Valvarave since while it was totally batshit crazy in a really bad way (and then mellowed out by the second season for the most part which only made things worse), I feel like I could trust Banpresto to make that batshit crazy work in a good way. I suppose that given that this is the last game in the Z-series, I wouldn't be surprised if they simply couldn't make larger additions work at this juncture (without doing to Z3-2ish what they did to Alpha 3 and turn it halfway into a Gundam SEED-fest).

I know someone who will be very happy to hear they're adapting the FMP novels into this.

Gundam X is a personal favorite for me. Other returning works are nice but I guess E7 fans will be disappointed. Surprised it took so long for Diebuster to make it into one of these.

Honestly I didn't like E7AO or AGE but I think they'd do fine in Super Robot Wars. It's not like Banpresto themselves are good at anything other than hot blood.

Same here, except that Turn A boots out the original for my personal favorite. Turn A isn't just my favorite Gundam show; it's one of my favorite anime of all time. So you can guess how I felt upon it's return. :D

AGE will probably only ever include the Second Gen stuff since its the part of the show that sucked the least (and didn't turn into a massive clusterfuck of Shamaylan-esque twists and rampant stupidity like 3rd Gen did; even Sunrise likes to pretend that particular part didn't exist).

AO will be entertaining just to see how they'd handle the Retcon Gun.

Even if Gundam X wasn't a full series. :v


Another thing I forgot to be disappoint in was the lack of Gundam ZZ or Hartaway's Flash. Especially when Z1 went and hung that Chekhov's Gun for all to see. Also no Gravion or Original Dancouga for a Final Obari Special (to go with the Final Inazuma Special *crosses fingers*).

But otherwise, I'm not too disappointed in the current roster. This will at least avoid the massive clusterfuck that was Alpha 3's roster additions. Plus, Gargantua means one more for the Stoic Veteran Band of Brothers (though I highly suspect that Gargantua will be handled by having the FMP class take a field trip to Waterworld).
Title: Re: super robot wars topic
Post by: Hathen on December 14, 2014, 11:24:05 PM
I know some people who would like for AGE to be adapted just so they can "fix" the show, like how in Z you had a bunch of characters basically calling Kira and co. a bunch of narcissists.

Honestly now that its been a while since AGE I don't really have any strong feelings about the show anymore, whereas I still think AO is a piece of crap and I still don't like SEED Destiny. I find it hard to hate AGE anymore because it didn't really aim to be anymore more than what it was, being nothing more than a dumb kid's show was the mission statement from day one (the whole generation aspect was a wasted opportunity though).

At any rate if I ever see AGE in SRW I'd actually like to see all the generations, if only to see the hilarity of crazy grandpa Flit.

Minor update. The most important detail is the fact that you can now set BGMs to individual weapons in addition to individual robots.

Finally! Now I can stick to HEATS for Getter Robo's regular attacks and Stoner Sunshine for Getter Robo's Stoner Sunshine attack, and I can regulate that Char's Counterattack theme for Amuro's Nu Gundam to just his Fin Funnels attack and pick the one he actually uses during the movie for the rest of his attacks.

I'm also going to give every fucking Gundam Head Vulcan peashooter attack Boss Borot's attack theme for maximum trollage (unless I can find something goofier like that A-Team knock off theme from FMP:FUMOFFU), because anything that gets brought down by those dumpy PoSes must be made to suffa.
Title: Re: super robot wars topic
Post by: Alisha on February 04, 2015, 01:05:40 PM
to me Z 3.1 was the worst SRW since K no coincidence they both have a shitty squad system.


Z-Crystal

A new menu has been added to the D-Trader, which allows the buying and selling of upgrade parts. By spending Z-Chips, which are earned through shooting down enemy units and such, you can strengthen your Z-Crystal, which will give your unit various effects, such as “Scout Out All Enemy Units” and “Combo Gauge+1 at Ally Phase Start.”

New Tag Command: “Boost Dash”

Increase your movement power by five, and move without being affected by the terrain. You can use this command even when surrounded by enemy units.

Buster Machine No. 7 Reappearance

When Nono from Diebuster‘s Morale reaches 120, you can execute a command called “Combat Mode,” which enables her and her machine to transform into Buster Machine No. 7. This transformation cannot be reverted for the duration of the stage.

Set Background Music for Each Weapon

Not only can you set background music for each mecha, but you can also set music for each weapon.

Link Bonus

If you have clear data for 3rd Super Robot Wars Rengoku Hen (included with first-print copies of the game) and 3rd Super Robot Wars Z Jigoku Hen, you’ll receive special link bonuses:

Jigoku Hen Cleared Once: Pilot Initial PP +150, Initial Kills +5, Initial Funds +50,000, Z-Chips +1,000, and upgrade parts.
Jigoku Hen Cleared More Than Once: Pilot Initial PP +10, Initial Kills +1, Initial Funds +10,000, and Z-Chips +200.
Jigoku Hen Scenario Complete: Pilot Initial PP +50, Initial Kills +5, Initial Funds +50,000, Z-Chips +1,000, and upgrade parts.
Rengoku Hen Cleared Once: Initial Funds +50,000, Z-Chips +500, and upgrade parts.

was deciding one whether to get tengoku hen for vita or ps3 since though I'm too lazy to plug my ps3 back in anymore but there's the clear bonuses. Well, it doesn't seem like the bonuses are that big so I guess I'll just get it for Vita. I really want them to bring back the Z1 squad system, it let them have that huge cast of characters and the formations thing was cool.

Also also also, Gundam Double X finally has its other pilot (after 4 other games of not having her). Also also also also, Zambot 3 finally has its Ideon Zambot Gun (oh shit).

Nono? She's the lead character from Diebuster.

Feels like a lot of people forgot about that show after it aired.

Great to see the Laevateinn in action since we'll probably never get an actual anime. If we do we'll be like in our 80s when it happens.

I know about Diebuster. I just figure that since it's, well, a mecha show, everyone would be in a mecha. Especially the lead character. I mean, taking on mechs bare-handed is cool and all; it just wasn't what I was expecting.

She is a mecha.
Besides, we've had Master Asia, that one guy from Giant Robo (Alberto IIRC), most of Tekkaman Blade's cast, Iczer-1 from Iczer (though to be fair on that one, Iczer-1 can turn into a giant, Ultraman style), Gurren Lagann's Yoko and other oddities like J9's Space Car from Braiger.

Raijinoh, Nadesico, Dunbine and Gaogaigar are old favorites of mine. Hell I won't really mind seeing AGE in a game either, if nothing else that show had a few cool mech designs and a handful of decent characters I'd like to play with.

Of course, I still can't get excited for it since 3DSs are region locked (Thanks Nintendo).

I'm actually curious to see how they'll handle AGE myself as well due to the generational thing (and the Level 5 writing). I won't be surprised if Gorg's lead is going to get all buddy buddy on whichever AGE lead they run with.


Edit: http://gematsu.com/2015/05/first-look-super-robot-wars-bx

Of fucking course they're running AGE-3. I really hope the masteries take a solid dump on Kio's lame ass (hell, I may just want to Map his sad ass back into the garage/bench for the hell of it). I guess this also means we're getting Crazy Grandpa Filt, but he wasn't worth Kio then and he probably won't be worth it now.

The rest of the series look amazing (I completely forgot that Raijin-oh was the name of the Kindergarten operated robot), but dammit AGE (also Mazinkaizer SKL and A Wakening of the Trailblazer, you guys are lame too).

That and you'd avoid having to deal with the timeskips (not like they ever mattered in the anime, just swap out one set of protagonists for another; bam, done).

And speaking of, I can't wait to see how they're going to try to justify AGE's Vegan menace's reason for war when Akito is happily chilling on Mars and totally not worried about cosmic rays (they're probably going to have the Vegans hitch a ride with the Jovian Lizards; though if their chronic space stupidity were to be treated with a healthy dose of Gekigengar 3....profit?).

New trailer.

The graphics took a noticeable hit from the Vita/PS3 but there's enough effort in this to not make it any sort of deal breaker. The OG mech is also sufficiently Super (while not being super goofy looking), and thus is by far the best part of this game's OG contributions. The enemy OG mech is also not bad looking either (fairly generic, but not bad). I wish they had better pilots though as what's there now could be described as <Insert Giant Robot Anime Character Here>.

I'm finally able to play SRW Z2 hakai-hen. And WOW. I love it. Being able to play with both Gundam wing and Gundam 00 in the same game is awesome. (not much a fan of 00 but I like the mecha design and their theme song enough to use them).

However, having played SRW OG, its kind of funny how the original mechs feel like they outclass the gundams. Just looking at in game stats, some of the gundams are down right underwhelming compared to powered R-series or the ATX team. The animations in combat are really nice though. As others have mentioned, the MC's mecha animations are over the top and its funny to see him outclass gundam heroes.

Oh and Code Geass is included too........OMG, this is the greatest SRW game ever. I can have spinzaku, Kallen, and Ledouch on the same team. O.O

That's because they're taking those shows' story lines from the very beginning. You're currently running with the start of Wing TV and the 00 boys before they get their red glowy Trans AMs (though none are as cool as Knight Rider's Trans AM, but that goes without saying). So yeah, they haven't even begun to run at full tilt.
Title: Re: super robot wars topic
Post by: bigdeath on August 07, 2015, 12:23:41 PM
Oh I know that but the SRW OG mecha also get their own upgrades. Which is stronger seems Mecha dependent. Wing Zero is going to be more OP than Weiss for sure but the R-1 vs Exia is debatable and very close, even both pilots are similar since both have zeal.

That said, some of the gundams are clearly stronger than others. Wing + Deathscythe and Dynames + Virtue are clearly better than rest of their team.

http://www.famitsu.com/news/201601/19097462.html

looks like GC originals are coming as well

taken from a poster at srwg:
Participating Characters and Mecha

a trailer will be released on the 21st

Granteed – Touya Shiun is playable. Katia Grignard and Melua Melna Meia are support. Touya is the protagonist of the game. He throws himself into an encounter with Granteed, and Katia and Melua are two girls who appear riding Granteed.
Soul Saber FF – A prototype developed for mass production by Mogami Heavy Industries.
Akimi Akatsuki – The son of the president of Mogami Heavy Industries. He goes to the same high school as Touya.
Soul Saber GG – A prototype developed for mass production by Mogami Heavy Industries.
Akemi Akatsuki – Akimi’s twin sister. She often has to hold down her brother, who easily rushes into things.
Exploration Vine Boxer Type R
Exploration Vine Boxer Type L
G Compatible Kaiser

At the start of the game, you can select “Beginner Mode.” This lets inexperienced players play the game without worry, with more funds and upgrade parts to obtain.

Producer Interview

This is the first title as part of the Super Robot Wars 25th anniversary. There are other projects underway other than this game.
Super Robot Wars J protagonist Calvina Coulange will also appear as an ally unit.
Granteed’s setup will change in a big way, and he’ll be Touya’s personal mech.
The protagonists of Super Robot Wars GC were set up as twins. The Real Robot that wasn’t Soul Saber (maybe Soul Gunner?) won’t appear in this game.
Immediately after the game starts, it branches into two paths, one with Touya and another with Calvina. The Touya route is easier to play for new players.
The branch has no connection to the SR point.
Thanks to the hard work of the development staff, the special moves of the new mecha are a spectacular sight to see.
Development is 70 percent complete.

Yes, but given Branpresto's track record on the matter, I highly suspect that her boyfriend will be needed to rescue her or something. At best, she's going to play second fiddle to Touya like Kusha does with Bullet. At worst, she's going to function as a Tobikage like killstealer/highly vulnerable lose condition with a suicidal streak until she's rescued from her brainwashing and immediately shoved into the battery socket of one of the game's battleships where her only use is for cutins and spirits (bonus points if she spends what relevance she has getting dumped on relentlessly like Setsuko).

If anything, the (mostly likely 2 stage) routesplit is going to be centered around her boyfriend and she's just the consolation prize for going that route, before either getting forgotten in favor of Touya/the GC dude/ATX shenanigans or gets kidnapped and her mech serves as a means of netting Touya his midgame upgrade.


That being said, I see that Rio is STILL regulated to being Ryoto's still highly useless AM Module/optional SP Battery (especially since Ryoto's starting with the Boxer Frame this time lol).

At this point, there really isn't a point. We're five games in (not counting the MK stuff or weird stuff like ACE R) and these games are clusterfucky enough to make it fairly incomprehensible even if you were paying attention.

Also lol at even getting the crappy spinoffs (unless you're counting PXZ1 & 2, which only really applies to PXZ1; PXZ2 does not include anyone directly from the SRW OG games, as they made room for the better SRPG series Fire Emblem instead).


To make this post slightly less neckbeardy, http://gematsu.com/2016/01/super-robot-wars-og-moon-dwellers-teaser-trailer-series-sales-top-16-million have a trailer. E:F;b...

At least they didn't just make her into a fourth powerpuff girl for dingus.


But seriously, the Einst sucked, even for OG2, let alone the ridiculously long Impact/Compacts 1~3 or the other OG games. Do you seriously have no one else to badguy it up in this game Branpresto? Or is this just another weaksauce excuse to having Kyosuke and Excellen show up to hijack yet another plot?

I feel like in this case that it was the Granteed that was awesome, regardless of the pilot. And along those lines, the Bellzelute was the shooty Real which, assuming a female OG doesn't wind up glued to the hip of their male lead or strapped on as their jiggly SP battery, is the type of robot they commonly get regulated to. Well, so long as it has a finisher worth a damn (and Calvina has more than crap like Trust, Cheer, Luck, Mercy, Snipe and maybe an ultra expensive Focus or Strike; although her designated Powerpuff Girl should avert this by default (unless the game/devs does something incredibly stupid like take the Powerpuff Girl away from Calvina and effectively leave her in the lurch; it'd be like Rio and the AM Module all over again, or Kashua and whatever went down with her mech in OGs2)), I'll be okay with this setup.
Title: Re: super robot wars topic
Post by: bigdeath on March 12, 2016, 03:02:57 PM
Nah, Touya made Granteed fantastic by eliminating its one weakness, slow speed, by having accel. He lacks guard but Katia learns it by the time you need it. His pilot stats and will gain are more suited for a SR while Calvina has an RR pilots' stats/will gain. (Calvina actually loses a will point when hit which makes her just a bit worst as a SR pilot). Also, Touya has higher defense which is more useful in an SR which can expect to be hit.

Don't worry about the power puff girls since they have already revealed which pilot they are partnering with. Touya gets Katia and Melua while Calvina gets Festenia. Whats cool about this is that these are the mech/pilot/support pilot combinations that are most effiecent in SRW J. A nice little nod to the fans of SRW J.

So we know now what the route splits at the start of the game will be focused on. Calvina vs Al-Van and Touya vs the other 2 moon knights. Fun times. It also looks like the SRW CG male will be in calvina (becuase hes seen in space) while the female will be on earth with Touya. Could be coincidental but I'm betting not.

If I'm not mistaken, that trailer says the release date is 6/30/2016

I hate the fact that I can make a couple of jokes off of this. She was the fun/more tolerable one dammit! (And was one of the rare female SRW characters to have a role beyond being her designated husbando's SP battery/having huge SP reserves complete with SP reserves jiggle physics/kidnapped and brainwashed drama-hour bait.)

Also, doesn't she voice some other SRW-esque characters like the fox chick from the OG Saga/Project X Zone series'?

Belated response due to being under the weather/busy elsewhere/overwhelmed by two major announcements/trying to confirm that this isn't a fake list.

You know, I'll take Prince of Darkness again if it means a Nadesico/Yamato team up into deep space.

Also, holy shit! A Brave series that isn't Gogaigar!? Hell yeah!!! (While I'm not against GGG per say, its nice to get some of the other Takura Tony properties once in a while.)

Also also, lol at Cross Ange and lololololol at Cross Ange being in a game with Gundam SEED Destiny; though the lack of Victory Gundam ensaddens me. Then again we also have fucking Zambot 3 and Shin Mazinger ZERO, so while we might not hit MAXIMUM MISOGYNY!!!, we'll still get some of the more fucked up shit out of this list.

Also also also, ZZ, Hathaway's Flash, Crossbone and Unicorn all in one game? My body's ready for a Ple combination attack.

Also also also also, hello Harken. If you're here then you mind me asking "KOS-MOS &| Megaman X when? Cuz I wanna punch some Titans' faces in with a Ride Armor or get all Koji Kabuto in case of ride wreckage and X-Buster a couple of fools (and I'm not specifying which X-Buster; although I don't recall any of the later models of KOS-MOS coming with it)."

Also also also also also, in the case of Moon Dwellers specifically, here's hoping we're getting this (http://i.imgur.com/gtnFQp4.jpg) to make up for the lack of Zeormyer in J's plot.

Oh, its going to BAD. But I'm gong to do it.........maybe. lol

Or I could save you some time and sum it up instead.

Code: [Select]
First half of the show is basically a Womens' Prison Sexploitation Film right down to the Alpha Bitch pecking order and the "it doesn't count as rape if its girl on girl" mentality. Second half gets hijacked by two dudes who end up in a glorified pissing contest over who gets ownership over the Harem Dimension as well as what's left of the aforementioned Womens' Prison inmates, all while the sexual fetish/humiliation conga-line continues to dance atop the former main character for the remainder of the show. Also one of the dudes is not-Kira 'Jesus' Yamato and also an utter rube who can't stop faceplanting the female lead's crotch and also the stealth protagonist because of course he is. While the other dude was the female lead's brother until he got borked by the real villain who's identical to the previous villain aside from also being a god/space baby and has no relation to the female lead beyond the desire to get him 'some pussy' (like almost literally everybody else in the series) because anything more than that would give her too much agency which is unacceptable because of course it is. Additionally, the titular [s]protagonist[/s] [s]female lead[/s] designated Alpha Waifu is identical to Gundam SEED Destiny's Stella Loussier aka Shinn's not-CyberNewType girlfriend so expect 'hilarity ensues' (for a given value of 'hilarity').

Which is why I'm disappointed that it didn't have the decency to debut in an SRW alongside 'Team [s]Red Shirt/Bra[/s] Shrike'/"master strategist Katejina's brilliant plan of defeating male pilots through scantily clad jihadists going horribly awry"/'paraphrased quote of female antagonist "I'm gonna stuff you into my womb so that I may unbirth you!"' Victory Gundam.

13 mins of Calvina's route's gameplay. Quick, someone translate this NOW! lol

Note: the Japanese release date is next friday.

I love Bellzelute, the more flashy updated attacks look awesome. Excuse me, I'm having a fanboy moment seeing all the attacks from SRW J updated. O.O I'm just happy to see Bellz has the same attacks for its game. They go through each attack just to make sure you know they are all there. Of interesting note is that spirits of the pilots don't seem the same. Tenia (the red head) didn't have accel in SRW J. I'll be interested in seeing what the powerbuff girls' spirit groups are.

So happy we got a little sneak peak at Calvina's Route. Totally going to pick her route split, just like I pick her in SRW J. Her theme songs are awesome and its nice to here the update versions of the songs.

Another small note: In SRW J Toya's first mission was on earth while the first mission of Calvina's route is in space. It seems they are sticking to that in the game as well.
Title: Re: super robot wars topic

So the Japanese version comes out this Friday and, of course, some people got the game early.

Note: this guy is uploading the attacks of a lot of mechs in the game. Check out the updated visuals for your favorite mechs and drool.

http://akurasu.net/wiki/Super_Robot_Wars/OGMD/Flow_Chart

Apparently 47 missions in total (not counting the replay value of split routes). After the first prologue mission, you get a 9 missions long route split between Touya and Calvina. So worry not, White Lynx fans, best girl is getting plenty of love. Coincidently, the first mission of her route is titled "White Lynx".

Title: Re: super robot wars topic
Post by: bigdeath on June 29, 2016, 11:14:16 PM
The game releasing Friday is an OG game so there are no mechs from animes in it. SRW V won't be released till next year.

Licensing issues prevent them from releasing SRW outside of the Asian market but the English sub version will be Asian Market only so its a none issue. Macross was likely dropped because Macross Frontier has been done to death already and they aren't ready to move on to Macross Delta (the shows not done airing yet). Also, SRW V has a lot of classic mecha like Chars Counterattack and Zeta, I feel like this is on purpose to celebrate the anniversary with some returning classic shows.

Because of those licensing issues, we are never going to see an English localization for western markets but thankfully Asian markets have become profitable enough for them to release english subs. Thank Asian mecha fans for that.

Except that she's not a subpilot for Hawken. She's just locked to the Gespy Phantom, which is manageable since it leads to shenanigans like this (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UOfR8dy6dM4).

Code: [Select]
The joke is that Aschen is OG Saga's version of Lamia, down to the W-Series call sign, and I think they even share the same voice actress. So technically she's as much of a subpilot for herself as she is for Hawken.

I don't understand, why is that Mysogynistic? SRW OG has plenty of female pilots that kickass. Also, if Aschen shares the same voice actress as Lamia then that explains why there is an achivements for having Lamia pilot Gespent Phantom.

Lately, there's been a trend of making OG characters that consist of a male pilot and a female subpilot (or in mechanical terms the guy you upgrade and has narrative importance, versus an SP Battery with occasional boob jiggle). While there are exceptions, most of those date back to either Alpha or the early GBA era SRWs when OG characters started actively having their own plot. SRW Z1 was the last time the OG series really had a female lead and her entire shtick was getting the crap beaten out of her both emotionally and physically to the point of going Tales of Symphonia's Collette while her plot macguffin was eating her alive (meanwhile, the male protagonist's issue was from his own anger backlashing on him, and he was very prone to getting angry and smashing things). And of the few earlier female leads that had existed, like Kusuha, have been mechanically nerfed/backseatted by the plot for their male counterparts/or just flat out kidnapped and brainwashed.

And I could go on but I'm belaboring the point, which is that with Moon Dwellers, the SRW series has finally given players a route with an honest to god female lead option for the first time since 2008 with Z1 (and only because its partially based upon SRW J, a game that was released in 2005).

Though to be fair, the entire Super Robot genre is heavily male dominated. There have been very few Super Robot anime/OVAs that had females in any sort of lead position that weren't also garbage fires like Cross Ange was (which unsurprisingly, got totally hijacked by one of the show's two male characters; the other being the villain), while the vast majority of the genre is lucky to even see a female character with any significance beyond 'designated love interest' and/or 'the Pink Ranger'. Which unfortunately means that SRW's tendency to copy genre tropes and whatnot also tend to copy this attitude as well.
Title: Re: super robot wars topic
Post by: bigdeath on July 05, 2016, 02:51:50 PM
To be fair to Kusuha, in the alpha games its Bullet who gets kidnapped/brainwashed. OG just reverse it.

I also hate to burst peoples hopes but the first route split of moon dwellers isn't really a choice between Touya and Calvina. Its more a choice between starting the game with newer characters or older returning characters.
Code: [Select]
The Earth route introduces Soul Saber and Compatible Kaiser, along with Touya and the new aggressors (Kia, Lamia, Seolla, Adrado (I think ). While the moon route does start with Calvina it also has the SRX team (and you can immediately form SRX) and the new PTX team (Irm, Ing, Rio, Ryoto).
Oh and Touya is most certainly the main character of the game (as much as any OG has every had a main character) though Calvina gets her development. I just don't want anyone expecting that by picking the moon route at the start they will make Calvina the main character of the game. That is not the case.

Yes, the Coustwell is a secret in the game but its unclear what the requirements for it are. Good news is that both Touya and Calvina can pilot Coustwell.

Yes, the Coustwell is a secret in the game but its unclear what the requirements for it are. Good news is that both Touya and Calvina can pilot Coustwell.

The better news is that due to the Granteed Draconis' plot mandate locking Touya to it by the late/endgame, Calvina basically gets the Coustwell all to herself.

The bad news is that the Coustwell will not be getting its finisher this game, thus making it the strictly inferior ride to Granteed (though still superior to Bellzute). It'll most likely unlock for Touya once he's forced to fork over the Granteed in OGs3.
Title: Re: super robot wars topic
Post by: bigdeath on July 08, 2016, 02:46:36 PM
Actually, the Bellzelute gets its finisher too so its still better than the Coustwell. Bellzelute is basically on pair with Exexbein so theres no need to have Calvina pilot anything else if you don't want too. I'm not sure if other pilots can use Coustwell, if so it could be a good choice for pilots that don't get their own unique advanced mech like Gilliam.

Also, Moon Dwellers IS OGs3. This isn't a gaiden game. They just dropped the number to avoid confusion with new players. Remember OG 2 and 2nd OG are different games. Technically 2nd OG is the third or even 4th game in the series (depending on how you count OG gaiden). This was addressed in interviews before the game came out.

Fine then. Whatever game they include the W folks in then (god only knows how they're gonna change the numbering scheme to by then anyways).

As for the Bellzelute/Coustwell thing, I have no idea how they really stack up to each other due to not having played J (and not having immediate access to this game). I just heard about the Coustwell lacking its powerpuff specific finishers for this game.

That said, at least I got a kick out of this: http://i.imgur.com/wuAhBFA.jpg (leaving it in a link in case of spoilers).

I love Amuro and how he says FIN FUNNEL. Why does he say this in English? lol Regardless, I love the Gundam High V.

Oh, and we get to see the original protagonists. Sweet. So it seems our original mech for this game is a Gundam-clone. lol  Not that I'm complaining. Its like a more heavily armed Gundam Buster, already one of, if not THE most heavily armed Gundams lol.

Male protag looks swag. Female protag has some huge.......assets.

So the other day, there was apparently a stream of V showing off the second mission. The bad news is that the original video with the stream has been privatized and is off limits, but the good news is that someone had the hindsight to record the second mission for themselves. So without further adue...

The only problem is that we still haven't gotten any real footage of the English version, but hey, take what you can get.

So has anyone else been playing this? Because it's awesome, especially with not just English, but good English. I just got to Mission 16 the other day. I'm on the Azernal route split, which is already a bit of an improvement over Cross Ange so far. (And dear God, did that show need an improvement...)

Everything's better under Okita's watch.

(Too bad the split is between Cross Ange and Might Gain. It'd been funnier if it had been between Ange and SEED Destiny (whoever wins, we lose).)

Or better yet, between SEED Destiny and the 00 Movie. The good news: You'll get plenty of Gundam action either way you go! The bad news: You'll get plenty of Gundam action either way you go! Frick the Kobayashi Maru, that's a no-win scenario.

Wait...why would anyone choose Cross Ange over Might Gain? I mean, one of them has giant robot trains. The other has...Cross Ange. It's like picking a half-eaten beagle over an all-expense-paid cross-country trip through the French Country Side. On a Mag-Lev train that also happens to have a great buffet.

IIRC Might Gain was directed by the same director as Cross Ange, which is neat and all but kinda not really much of a choice since Might Gain is both a Yusha series and aimed at a far less scummy crowd of creeps (then again, one's about trains while the other was a trainwreck, so there is a meta joke present). Meanwhile, Gundam SEED Destiny (and SEED) was also by the same director, was also pretty bad, and CA had a bunch of SEED expies (both shows feature the same protagonist hijacking both shows from both "protagonists", among many other things) the meta jokes run so much deeper (although I suppose that this wouldn't have been much of a choice either given just how into the ground SEED Destiny has been ran in SRW games at this point).

Also, who would be so cruel as to kill and eat Snoopy (and worse, only halfass the job and leave his poor remains for some sick vagrant to also nom on)?

This is true. But honestly, I just felt that the Cross Ange route was going to be more important to the overall story, and I was also hoping to see SRW use it's Fix Fic magic. And so far, it slowly but surely looks like its' doing so.

I wouldn't say they were the only redeemable thing about Cross Ange. I liked Ange and some of the other characters. The music was pretty kickass. The fights could be pretty darn entertaining. And there were some good moments peppered throughout the series.

And that was about it.

You know, I get that most giant robots are at least in part made to sell toys, but Godmars is one of the only ones I've seen that looks like an actual honest to God toy. It's like it was a children's plaything designed strictly to be sold on shelves across Japan everywhere, and then somehow blown up into the behemoth we know it as. Say what you will about Gundam, (I WANT TO SELL THIS GUNDAM) but at least the mechs look like they could possibly be somewhat feasible. Whereas Godmars might as well be an action figure come to life.

The only one I've seen come close was God Sigma. Hell, thanks to Z2's Two Earths setup, my headcanon was that it was an Earth 1/Earth 2 deal, with Godmars being the newer more refined version (one pilot, robot made by space aliens,) and Sigma being the older 'original' version. (Three pilots, robot made by human hands.) Nevermind that both of their sets of attacks had intentionally crappy animations. When you think about it, it makes a strange kind of sense.

A bit belated, but to answer your question, its from a show called Chogattai Majutsu Robot Ginguiser.

I kinda doubt anyone would want it in an SRW though since giving it a Z level treatment of its animation style would make its Dynamic Kills take longer than an OG Real's shooting animation.

But then the internet gave me the most bootlegged solution, you ps4 to pc remote play it and then stream it from your pc. The solution works and now 4 hours later I'm on stage 5. Not sure how much I like this new TacP system though. Guess it kinda streamlines upgrading your pilots as you don't need specific pilots to get kills to build their Pilot Points anymore, it's just all one currency instead.

http://www.siliconera.com/2017/12/11/super-robot-wars-x-announced-ps4-ps-vita-japan-asia/

New SRW announced.

Code Greatass R2, Gundam ZZ, Gurren Lagann, Reconguista in G and Cross Ange are the highlights.
Lost track on all these recent Mazingers and not familiar enough with Dunbine or Wataru to know how they'll interact.
More Mightgain and Crossbone is never bad.
Nadia's the 'what the crap' pick (and even more strangely is not getting paired with Gargantua).
And the rest are likely to be post plot/unit only (aside from Buddy Complex, which was so bad that Bandai canceled and replaced it with Cross Ange; I guess that makes it a highlight too, even if they've got to play it straight this time).

Here's to the Kallen x Ange power hour.
Title: Re: super robot wars topic
Post by: Hathen on December 11, 2017, 11:48:36 AM
More games for consoles I don't own! Nadia is indeed the surprise pick (while simultaneously being kind of a "huh, you'd think it would've been in sooner" like Yamato was).

It's been building for a while but I realize that since I don't watch a lot of mecha anime anymore I basically don't have a clue what the new entries are at this point. For Z I had either never watched or never heard of Orguss, Aquarion, Daiguard, or Dancougar Nova (though to be fair on that last one I've never watched the original Dancougar either).

Well, this time G in Reconguista I know, but dropped after like 4 episodes (still on the backburner), Wataru is just the obligatory new 80s entry (feels like they'll never run out of those), I've never watched Cross Ange after hearing about some of the stupid scenes in the show, and I've never even heard of Buddy Complex.

All the new Mazingers are basically manga-only since as far as I know, Mazinger Z: The Impact did really poorly (A shame since I always like the modern take on 80s designs). Last animated Getter Robo was nearly 15 years ago too.
Title: Re: super robot wars topic

Mazinger Z: The Impact did poorly? That's a shame. Explains why we never got any Getter Robo series in the same vain, I guess.

Orguss and Dancouga Nova are two I've been meaning to get to, I just keep forgetting to watch them (and I have a half-dozen other old-school mecha shows to finish first).

I'm always up for more Train robots, though. And Gundam. Always Gundam.

Not really interested in Cross Ange, and Buddy Complex blew chunks, IMO.

Oh well, I think I'm too far behind to even think of catching up on this series at this point...a shame, since they're coming out are in English now...

The newest entries for this game are Buddy Complex, Mashin Hero Wataru, Nadia and Reconguista in G. Previous game SRW V, introduced from this list: Mightgaine, Cross Ange, Mazinger ZERO and Crossbone Gundam (granted the main suit was in earlier games, but as suit only). Everything else on the list has either been in a dozen or more SRW games, featured heavily in the Z games, or is Dubine or Gundams ZZ and F91.

Orguss is fairly light but solid and has one of the most chill OPs in mecha anime (admittedly it does have a number of 80s tropes and a few hiccups on the side; I'm looking at you Sley).

First Aquarion series could be described as (http://i.somethingawful.com/forumsystem/emoticons/emot-catdrugs.gif) (or perhaps Dog Drugs?), while the second could be described as (http://fi.somethingawful.com/safs/smilies/2/4/catstare.001.gif) (because I also don't have a Dog Stare gif), and there is no third series (regardless as to what other people might pretend to believe).

Daiguard is basically its premise of Office Workers 9 to 5-ing a Giant Robot in the hopes of drumming up business until a proper Pacific Rim organization can form to actually save the world.

Dancouga Nova isn't as good as OG Dancouga because all of the MCs are unlikeable shitheels for the early parts and only get better later on (and really was only getting included into SRW for its token female MC to break up the sausagefests that SRW endgames devolve into, partnering up with OG Dancouga was just a nice plus for Z1).


As for the new shit in this game, Buddy Complex is about as Bandai the Numbers as you can get. It was practically assembled in a factory in Thailand and less exciting to watch than paint drying, which is why nobody gave a fuck when it was mercy killed instead of given a second season.

The only reason why I give a fuck about Cross Ange is due to the fact that they've already done it once before, and the first run is always played as straight as possible (Kallen x Hilda power hour perhaps? or perhaps that dragon chick might get to be relevant this time around?)

I failed to notice it before, but Zeta Gundam's in too. Which means another round of watching Kamille getting pissed off about his girly name yet again, which likely means that ZZ, CCA, F91 and Crossbone Gundams are Suits Only. At the very least there's no goddamn SEED Destiny this time around (although Cross Ange is effectively partially Gender Flipped GSD anyways).

Code Geass R2 was pretty weak, especially compared to R1, but its not as weak as its current SRW showings, so it has nowhere to go but up (although really, all you need is Lulu's ridiculous Command Aura shenanigans and Kallen being death incarnate).

Gurren Lagann though isn't likely to Tenga Toppa its Z3-1 showing (beyond not having Z3-2 following it; but that's as low of a bar as being a politician and not sexually harassing someone today).

And again, Nadia's a single Submarine. Even Yamato had fighter jets and a Reverse Homage to grandfather its way in, while Nadia doesn't even have fucking Getter 3 around for all of the inevitable water stages. Seriously, what even is this!? (And further, why haven't we gotten Sakura Taisen or Xenogears in a SRW yet (Seriously, a Submarine Robot Wars would be amazing just on concept alone; we already have FMP's Sub in Space; what's the harm in bringing a Blue Sub, a Sand Sub, and a Steampunk Sub, among others, along for the ride)?)

So in short, unless this cast list is actually being honest about which series is Mech Only, this game is going to be weak as hell (I can't wait to see the inevitable Japanese Highschool MC and Titty MacSP-Battery OCs).

Time to rename this game, the Super Fighting Robot Wars X OMega.

Too bad this is still the mobile trash title.


Because I'm the only one who still cares q_q Edit: http://www.siliconera.com/2018/01/30/super-robot-wars-x-producer-takanobu-terada-talks-fantasy-world-al-warth-masaki-appears/

Some details about the game's setting and which series will likely be the most plot heavy. Sounds like its going to be the Watari x Buddy Complex power hour on alternate Earth (hereto referenced as Earf) with Nadia on tap and Reconguista in G basically along for the ride. Gurren Lagann, True Mazinger and Code Greatass are getting pretzel'd into this and Misaki's VA demanded inclusion as usual to continue paying rent for his living space at Branpresto's office.

And now I know why they included Dubine.

I liked Reconguista in G. It wasn't that confusing. The animation style was pretty and I enjoyed the story. I've seen worst from the Gundam franchise.

But what one thinks of the animes included doesn't really matter. SRW is all about the Mecha and Code Geas R2 and Reconguista in G have awesome mecha designs

Counterargument: Nadia.


That said, the other thing SRW does well is crossover jokes. Recently seeing Fafnir alongside SEED Destiny makes me want them both in a game with Majestic Prince stat (bonus points if they don't make GSD post series, so when Durandal unveils his master plan and Shinn turns/calls bullshit, either the Fafnir or the MJP Hirarifaces will get pissed off at him for being for/against human engineering respectfully).

The post-plots need to go, especially since in GSD there's not even any new mecha to add. Char's Counterattack needs to go too, since it prevents 0079 from coming back ever again. How about that Frozen Teardrop?  Katoki Wing, Proto-Zero?

Oh well, at least there's Sirbine.

on the fence whether to get X, its like $62 on yesasia but their shipping is notoriously slow. Also, it does seem like there are less series in this one, no Getter Robo is crazy. But Gundam Wing is in it...
Title: Re: super robot wars topic
Post by: bigdeath on June 04, 2018, 04:58:41 PM
SRW X has the debut of Reconguista in G (it follows the key plot points and makes the story more clear but doesn't change anything from the show) , Code Geass R2, and Gundam Wing endless waltz. You can also gain Char himself on your team (Rather than full frontal in SRW V). I'd suggest getting these English sub SRW games now because I doubt these games are getting reprints. After a while they are going to become rare and expensive to find.

I'm surprised more people aren't talking about these games. At long last we are able to play SRW with English subs and its SO sweet. SRW V and X are rather easy SRW games though. I think the plot in V is more interesting but it follows Battleship Yamato's storyline and I liked that show. SRW X also has a dearth of super robots (if that matters to you) but at least the MC mecha is a magical super robot.

OG Moondwellers has some serious Singlish issues with it ("Einst!, Zwei!, Dry!", "Use Organite Buster here!" and many more), and the game's plot follows what's-his-face over Calvina; which in effect means that he's stuck in a gimped mech for about 90% of the game for plot reasons, whereas Calvina despite being treated as mostly 'just there' can effectively solo about 90% of the game.

V is interesting because of Yamato since unlike your typical SRW carrier, this fucker is treated like the floating Super Space Battleship that it is in both versions of the show. It also has everyone (and I mean everyone) taking a collective dump on Embryo, and the OGs are mostly window dressing since its the sudo shopkeeper AI OG character that's the real OG MC (that being said, the female OG is superior to the male one in this as well (also this is the first non-OG SRW since Z1 where you get to pick your protagonist).

X is less interesting because despite the setting, the various shows don't mix terribly well, with everything being divided between Gundam/Gundam-esque Reals and everything else. The localization is the best of the three, which is nice, but again, the writing itself doesn't really stand out as much as with better SRW games (this is sadly no MX boy, no MX). Its the male OG who gets the better deal this time around since he actually has interactions with Butler Bird versus getting creeped on 24/7 like the female OG, but Wataru is the true MC this time around. At least Nadia has a fun debut.

That FMP game. On the one hand, its nice seeing the SRW Neo team continue to get work. On the other hand, it follows the plot of the novels pretty religiously so expect Sousuke in the ARX-9/Leviathan and nothing else for long stretches.

Yeah, but they more than likely had to jettison the Third Bridge (also any posts made before the year 2014 or thereabouts), and it still isn't fixed.

And those are fair opinions to have on OGs. Frankly the real stars of those shows are Nine and Butler Bird.

Fair warning, SRW A protable is an old school SRW game. That means horrible hit rates, high energy costs, terrible spirit lists, and a reliance on the few actually good units you have to carry the rest of the team.

On the bright side, if you want to experience what an actually challenging SRW game is like then enjoy.

It should also be noted as the last appearance of the RX-78 Gundam, for those of you really olde skool giant robot anime fans.

OG fans might care that this (or at least the original GBA version) is where Lamia and Axel originally hail from. The latter is especially noteworthy if your only exposure to the guy is from OG2 GBA (since they completely rewrote his character into "BEOWULF!!!" :black101:).

No Cross Ange or Gundam SEED Destiny? Yes!

Yes Prince of Darkness? No!

TWO Yushas in one SRW!? HELL YEAH!!!

Cool that they got Harlock to replace Yamato (and fair enough as 2202 isn't all the way out yet and doesn't get the mulligan that Rebuild of EVA got). (To answer your question about Harlock, it could be best described as 'What if Yamato, but Space Pirates'; also some prime crossover material between it and Crossbone Gundam.)

Also, now that we've have Harlock and Yamato in subsequent games, here's hoping the next one can also get Macross for this:
(https://i.imgur.com/rtAdhT3.jpg)

No idea what they're going to do with Rayearth beyond just handing out the robots and going "There you go, now shut the hell up nerds!". At least they've got GunXSword to hang off of (would've liked Escaflowne better; but this is serviceable and, truth be told, a fairly good alternative). Also they're in a game with motherfucking VOTOMs (https://fi.somethingawful.com/safs/smilies/f/0/getin.001.gif)

Cowboy Bebop doesn't have any proper mechs per se, but there's enough variety within the casts' jets, plus the Swordfish and soundtrack could easily carry the entry.

I also see that Xenoblade 2 got in (unofficially and on a technicality (and not really, but at least more people can finally get the joke about Mythra == Angela Ballsack (or whatever her last name was))).

Hopefully Dunbine gets more than a few mechs and/or Wings of Rean again.

And last but not least, Gunbuster, G Gundam AND GaoGaiGar (also Getter Armageddon, but it doesn't have 4Gs in its title; also also GunXSword and its Retired Mexican Sentai GaoGaiGar team) all in the same game. (https://i.somethingawful.com/forumsystem/emoticons/emot-unsmigghh.gif)


There's also something something mobage gatcha something....


Edit: Btw, just for reference, here's what the usual pre-announcement fake leak list looked like this time:
(https://i.imgur.com/9cJvFEe.png)

(translated names: Zambot 3, Daitarn 3, Aura Battler Dunbine, Gundam ZZ, Char's Counterattack, Victory Gundam , Gundam Wing EW, Gundam SEED Destiny, Gundam Unicorn, Gundam IBO, Cross Ange, New Getter Robo, Mazinger Z Infinity, Gaogaigar and Gaogaigar FINAL, Sakura Taisen, Saber Marionette J, Chouja Raideen, and Macross Delta)

Now compare and contrast to what we actually got this time and be amazed.
Title: Re: super robot wars topic
Post by: Hathen on November 19, 2018, 08:22:15 PM
Yeah, Escaflowne would've been pretty nice to go alongside Rayearth (plus like 5 people owned a Wonderswan so nobody played the one it was in). That being said, they're really continuing their trend of adding some rather odd choices to SRW. I guess once they decided Yamato was in it made sense to start putting in other series only containing ships but no actual robots. Though Saber Marionette J being on that fake list probably should've been a red flag regardless, human-sized units are even rarer in the series (though with this game I suppose we might get to use Cyborg Guy again).

Also it looks like this game will be another one recycling a ton of animations- to be fair after a certain point there's really no point in trying to one-up your Fin Funnel and Breast Fire animations anymore, but it does make me wonder if they're going to start another serialized SRW soon, time seems to be about right for that.

You mean one mainline game and one piece of shit mobage (I mean sure, its a better stab at it than XO ever was or will be, but its still worthless to me).

At any rate, I'm hoping it'll be available out here on the Switch without jumping through too many hoops, since I can live with the increasingly improved Singlish and it'd be a great piece of software to have on the go.

Cyborg Guy!? You mean Cyborg Gai?

But yeah, Saber Marionette J and Sakura Taisen are this particular "leaker's" MO as they have found their way onto the last several pre-stream 'leaks' without fail (I guess I could see the latter happening these days due to the rumors of Sakura Wars VI possibly being in the works, but both of them together is a dead giveaway). As for footies, hell, we got fucking Rayearth, which is 90% on foot action (its pretty much a Shoujo JRPG Adventure until the 'suddenly, giant robots' at the end), nevermind Spike Spegal's Bruce Lee style kung fu or his occasional arsenal for dealing with Vicious, or SUPER ASIA!.

And while it'll be unfortunate to have so many recycled animations, I'm hoping that they'll at least redo GGG and Gun X Sword as neither have seen the series since W and K respectfully.

Hopefully, regardless as to the visual quality, we could at least have a setting that isn't just "Oops! All multiverse." again. I want to see Judau and the Crossbone folks actually deal with the Jovians, STMU/Buster Machine 3, and possibly some of the GGG villains (since we aren't getting GaoGaiGar Final) among other shenanigans.

You guys do realize that its guaranteed that GaoGaiGar and G Gundam will have brand new animations since they have not been in a modern SRW game yet. That means there are no old animations to recycle so everything will be new. Thats why this SRW has fewer new shows because those two need a full animation suite.

Iczer 1 getting in without Iczer 3 is pretty bold though (although I could see it getting conjoined to SPT Lazner instead).

The one issue is that we don't know what else will be in that DLC. The T series will probably show up, but I'm not holding my breath until we get other cast confirmations (it'd be great if we got some Yamato 2202).

Although, now that I think on it, beyond oddities like Nadia, what even would there be from V and X that aren't also in T (like there's Buddy Complex but who gives a fuck about Buddy Complex? maybe Cross Ange but beyond having more chaos dunking on that one villain, there really isn't anything T could add that V and X haven't already covered; the 'ten years later' crowd are already the best we're gonna get out of UC Gundam, Getter and Mazinger)?

Edit: Forgot about FMP, Eva, Code Gaeas, Gundam SeeD Destiny, Gundam Unicorn, Daitarn 3, Zambot 3, Wataru, Recoginusta in G and Guren Lagann. I guess the Eva crew and Simonne could find their way into the Ten Year Later club, while Eldora V could hang out with some Daitarn/Zambot, and Wataru gets to either join the magic mech club of Rayearth and Dubine or hang out with Might Gain and GGG (assuming they rebake some of those animations, woof), among other options.

Hopefully we'll get some of the above and not have to face 20 missions of the same three enemy types, as that would be pretty dire.
