This series is starting to interest me, but I have -no- clue which games would be good ones to start with. I got OE for free ("free"?) a while back; would that be an acceptable starting point?

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.

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).

ok so I got my copy today with the game coming with a dlc code for a hd version of an older game I'm assuming. Not much to say, so far the team-up mechanic is interesting and so is the combo system even though that usually takes a bit of planning. Also the protagonists theme song is pretty cool.

just got to stage 23 gundam route, god the bosses hurt so much and are so accurate, time to just grind I guess.

So after 20 odd years (23 if you really want to get technical), the Masou Kishin series is coming to an end.

Hopefully this means that there won't be any MK plot arcs derailing OGs3.

yeah some of the animations obviously had way more work put into them, namely gurren lagan, nu and zeta gundams. Really disappointed with the final attacks for aquarion and shin getter.

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.

Knowing Gundam X was one of the first to be confirmed as returning made my heart leap for Joy. It's my second favorite full Gundam series after the original.
