Quick search brought me a bunch of 00/Seed Astray-level mechs, which is pretty good, but with a few too many random pointy bits that serve no purpose other than to fuck with my eyes when I'm tired. =P

Hence why I said 'pretty good' and not 'Grrrreat!'. And 'pretty good' is a fair assessment compared to some of the blockier giant robots out there like Might Gain or Godmars (although Branpresto actually got some good mileage out of the plastic bricks that comprised Godmars).

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.


(not from either Godmars nor Godsigma)

...I stand corrected. Also, where the heck is that gloriously goofy thing from?

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.

ok so I got SRW V asian version from my friend and I thought hey, time to stream it. Turns out its got the Persona 5 the entire game is a blocked scene thing, I was in despair. 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.

Its even better for SRWV, given that its not their first go at it (it still has its issues, but nothing like "Einst!" "Zwei!" "Dry!").

Also, you'll be happy to know that you can pick your OG's gender and ride again with V.

Activating my Post Again skill to bring you: http://gematsu.com/2017/10/full-metal-panic-fight-dares-wins-announced-ps4

SRW: FMP! Edition.

I was wondering what they were up to given their radio silence. Its kind of amusing given how much love Branpesto has been giving the FMP! series lately.

Is SRW V the only English title on PS4, or is there another?
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

There's OG Moon Dwellers but calling it 'English' would be giving it too much credit. Moar liek Singlish.

There's also G Generation Genesis, but that's Gundam only and a rather altogether different beast.

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.

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.

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...

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.

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 (or perhaps Dog Drugs?), while the second could be described as (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).
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.
