For those new to gunpla/plamo or even just new to this thread; please read the guide. Please read it before asking questions, as there is a chance it has already been answered there.

For those unfamiliar, "plamo" is a shortened form of "plastic model". If it's made of plastic, someone can probably help you here!
If you're new, you're gonna fuck up. Don't worry! If you're experienced, don't make the new people worry!

>Why won't anyone answer my question?
Try being specific, especially about your materials and process. Post pictures whenever possible; even if the kit/part looks bad, you are more likely to get help posting pictures.

I'm here.
tfw only choices for me are:
>Military veterans who literally buy out local hobbyshop every month to build tanks and planes with motors inside and take hobby seriously
>literal mouthbreathing autistic snapshitters who carry gunpla in pencil cases PENCIL CASES and don't even properly trim the nubs (none of this is a joke or exaggeration.)
I just like the hobby for slowly working on stuff at my really slow pace, but someone who is into similar stuff as me would be nice. Maybe when I am more confident in my skills I might see about the first hobby group, but that second one is just a red flag.
How else are they supposed to carry the things around to do GP battles?

Kira > Athrun > Shinn.

Strike Freedom > Infinite Justice > Destiny.

TV Destiny = TV SEED > Movie trash.
These are the popular pleb opinions, yes.
Even after they get their upgrades, Kira in SF never seemed to have much of an edge over Shinn in the Destiny.
There is the scene at Orb where SF catches Destiny's sword, and Kira uses the railguns instead of landing a definite kill via the chest cannon, but outside of that, SF spent the whole fight on the defensive until IJ and Legend show up.
Then again, Kira couldn't use Dragoons in the atmosphere, so he probably would've stomped Shinn in space.

Got a question. So I don't have any current gen consoles and so can't play any of the most recent entries in the series but if I'm a newcomer to this game series where should I start? Is it worth playing all the games or are there specific ones I should hit? I read through the OP and didn't see anything related to "where should I start" questions so figured I'd ask.
OG1 GBA, OG2 GBA, SRW J are in English, gives you an idea of what the games are like but are older games without newer games quality of life improvements

Best to try first before spending money
The original is the only one that counts. It's for the Gameboy. Play that. Don't actuall. The anon above me has a good list.
Dracodeus just makes me think of how impossible to animate it'd be if they did an anime with it. Literally could only see that design working with CGI
Let's riot and terminate gachashit together, once and for all, so we can finally get good series in real SRWs.

>Lacus and her Intel agency chance upon something so incriminating as the Destiny plan details in a completely abandoned and unrelated colony?
She went to space specifically to investigate Durandal and that colony was where he worked when he was still a geneticist. Before notRommel's gofer returns with the journal she already has an idea of what Durandal is maneuvering towards and what his next move would be.

>Or how in Seed managed to get away with stealing a two top secret Military Mobile Suits and their main state of the art battleship?
She only stole Freedom, Athrun was given Justice then fucked off to join the TSA on Earth.
You literally see how she steals the Freedom. They emplace their own troops as the guards who then watch their boss hand it to Kira.
The Eternal was notRommel's ship and he decides to fuck off with it after kicking the non Clyne faction crew off.

Siegel talked to Kira too, though it mostly happened off screen because god forbid Seed be interesting. With that and their undercover guy Waldfeld having also met and vouched for him, and he seemed like a solid option and also probably their best one at the time.

They needed someone to bust up Spitbreak and also to get the Freedom out of Zala's hands before he gave it to some psycho racist who started shooting up cities on earth with it. And an ace pilot who was disasified with the war just dropped into their lap to do that.
That's still her stealing both the Eternal and Justice though
Yes she stole the Freedom and Eternal, but how is it a question of how she managed to get away with it?
There was nobody in position to stop her during the events. They weren't even done under contrived conditions or under extraordinary circumstances.
On the plus side she died of cancer.

Hey, /vg/ might be better for this but im more concerned about the mechs. You guys looking forward to mechwarrior 5?
172 replies and 31 images omitted. Click here to view.
and I am saying that mechwarrior games don't have enough depth to justify that slowness so they end up just being bad arcade games. you say that you have to think about what you're doing but there's barely anything to think about. without realistic damage models or anything similar your only strategy is aiming for legs or whatever spot already has sparkly damage textures.
>where everyone just runs slowly in circles shooting each other with every gun until they run out of hp
>but there's barely anything to think about
I get that you don't think about anything in these games, but that doesn't mean there isn't anything to think about.

>your only strategy is aiming for legs or whatever spot already has sparkly damage textures
That is obviously what the players of many of these games do, but there are far more options that depend very much on the individual situation you find yourself in. I say this for both of the modern MW games, MWLL and MWO. Can't speak for MW5 because I haven't played it.
Way back in MW2mercs you actually wanted to kill the mech while minimizing how many limbs you shot off, for the purposes of salvage.

But as a tradeoff you have to really whittle down the enemy's most heavily armored region, which is often also the smallest one. It's actually easier at times to lop off arms and a leg, but that means salvage takes a massive hit.

Since salvage can greatly contribute to your options in between missions, there's a strategic balance to strike between safe easy and cost efficient engagements vs trying to loot the corpses of your foes.
This was posted last week as an example of wolfhound play.
That looks pretty fun.

Pretty sad that despite all the problems, Evolved is more Front Mission than Left Alive.

Just peeking at it now and Im not sure it really looks all that hot itself, sort of looks more like they're trying to cash in on Xcom
I keep forgetting that it exists.
It looks bad but I'm kinda hoping it's another Binary Domain where, yeah the game is a cluncky crappy mess but it redeems itself by being incredibly enjoyable to play through.
There's barely any info out and the demo clearly shows it, but and even then I'm more hyped about that even more than this thing, or any new Squeenix-developed title for that matter, Nabeshima involvement be damned.

>Caring about having philosophical conversations with women
I'd say some of us are able to watch Code Geass for multiple reasons. Liking the mecha does not mean having no other interest.

Honestly, I've never cared for gags.

>C.C. pilots too, and you can actually have an intelligent/philosophical conversation with her. Kallen, especially in S2, is kind of a brick head.

I think that's rather harsh and also missing the point. Most robot pilots, male or female would not be interested in having a "philosophical conversation either". I do not expect Kallen to do that.
There seem to be a couple of unnamed and undiscussed mecha in the recent PV, but we probably won't get specs nor any info for a while.

So what do you guys prefer, Be Invoked or the TV ending?
12 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
I think it boils down to the fact that because from the producers point of view all that matters is selling the toys. The plot essentially doesn't matter, because that isn't the selling point, so creators had a ton of freedom to just do whatever so as long as there were lots of robot fights. Some limitations would apply, but it was a pretty loose leash in comparison to other anime at the time, and it is certainly different from today were Gundam's domination of the toy market means that shows have to include what ever is trendy and can't just be creative, like with all the cringey highschool teen drama in Darling in the Franxx.

Do not bitch out of watching the TV series.

The following is the definitive Ideon experience. Anything less, and you pretty much haven't really watched it:

TV show (all 39 episodes) -> Be Invoked

Don't bother watching A Contact. If you're curious, do it after you're done with TV->BI.

Be Invoked, like everyone already said, is just the extended (uncut) version of the final episode(s), this isn't the Evangelion case where the TV ending =/= Movie ending.

Thanks for the thread since it gave me an excuse to rewatch it.
The TV ending is literally just "and then they all died". There is nothing in the TV version that is not in Be Invoked. I would say there is not much in terms of competition.
Unless you feel that the TV ending is more glum and happen to prefer that.

Name a more mary sue character than this
121 replies and 39 images omitted. Click here to view.

That's pretty much the only time something like that happened to her though, and we only find out about it in a flash back halfway through StrikerS. It wasn't like they set up a problem in the first two seasons and had it catch her there.

But I meant more the fact everyone she meets likes her unless they're a bad guy or someone who's supposed to be wrong, she's smart and gets the better of people pretty often, stuff like that.

That's not a bad thing necessarily since all the seasons focus on other characters even if she's the protagonist, and they even basically acknowledged that at the end of Reflections.
The best way to identify a Mary Sue is to ask yourself if the character is both an unofficial creation and has parasitized the host story such that they displace the existing official main characters as the driving agents of the narrative.

Simply put, Mary Sue is an outsider for whom the universe inexplicably revolves around. The latter is why Mary Sue is a subset of badly written character, but the former distinguishes the Sue for what it is: escapist fanfiction.

Half of morons in this thread don't even know what Mary Sue even is and other half apparently had Votoms entire story go over their head.
