Personally, I find his MS resigns' skinny t-rex arms off-putting. I love what he did with most of the vehicles, though.
I'm just surprise that rightstuf or vertical haven't picked up the license.
To me the arms look proportionate to the head. Its just how Konda gives his mecha big wide chest/torsos
iirc there was one chapter translated a thousand years ago alongside that one chapter of the Ural Terpsichorie story that was a Bebop prequel?
I think it was something about somebody looking around their surroundings? Looking back I remember an isness similar to the end of the First novels on the beach?
Maybe I'm misremembering a synopsis.
I thought Kondo was niche even among the Gundam fanbase, though. Seems more like the kind of stuff that might pick up a following at American hobby stores rather than having widespread appeal.

I suppose they could argue a lot of surplus equipment hasn't been repainted either, because it hasn't seen much action, and since they show up too briefly it's not a priority. I'd expect that in a TV series set further down the time line tho
still feel we should of gotten more of a back history of these machines.

This remains the best version of Zeta, for obvious reasons.
Even Monster Hunter has mecha now.

That's what I am talking about. They never gave it an official kit.
Does it look like a zanscare unit?
I think so, I think it was the Thai dude?
Oh I see what you mean about "made the" derp I was sorta skimming and thought it was "made a"
The Abigorbine. A beetle looking custom of the Abigor model kit. Piloted by Luang Dallara from Thailand.

First game has an official localization, but the other two are never-ever due to Nickelodeon slaughtering the IP.

Would love to have W and Wars in English, but 3DS encryption is cursed.

This game?
Senritsu no Stratus:

The PS1 game just got translated so they could happen in the future.
no, the one on GBA
That was different.
TL;DR because the games aren't made with localization in mind so they'd have to be handled directly by Rocket Company because they'd need their coders and programmers but Rocket Company doesn't have the time, and by the time they had time to work on it the 3DS was already pretty much dead so there was no reason to try.


You can read about it more in depth here.

If the Gundam’s beam rifle beam powerful enough to blow up a mobile suit just by grazing it, how come the Sinanju got away with just a scratch when it got hit by it?

Consistency is not a synonym to Gundam. Even as someone that hates Unicorn I can acknowledge that.
are you sure, stupid random quotes are par for the course with gundam
The original Gundam survived a lot of damage since most of the weapons used against it were lower end projectile weapons. Beams will go through luna titanium and its gundarium variants. The Sinanju doesn't have that excuse since it's going up against higher power beams.
That's a Tomino hallmark and it's pretty obvious Unicorn isn't trying to emulate it

We're seriously almost there edition.

I finished translating all the story cutscene dialogue and did a second pass for corrections.
Menus and stuff seem to be all done.
AI is doing a quality pass on the battle dialogue and fixing some graphics and other technical things.
I'm on pace to finish the character library in maybe a bit more than a week. If I keep this up I should be able to have robot library done in about a month after that, so they might both be complete for the release.

Stay tuned, we're close.

Anyone remember that GaoGaiGar AMV from 10 years ago called "Over Skill"? Wondering if any of you guys on /m/ have the original file of it somewhere.

Here's a potato quality version of it on nicovideo but I'm sure there was a higher quality version of it somewhere.

Also GaoGaiGar thread since there doesn't seem to be on the catalog already

The Famicom game is pretty good.
Yeah, it's pretty much Ninja Gaiden Lite, story cutscenes and all. Also seems like it was a fairly popular bootleg in the areas where that was common. That one Russian guy on Youtube who talks about what it was like growing up with pirated NES games mentions it a couple times in his videos.
To Be Yourself (the credits theme) is my personal favorite. It's so cheerful.
Love his character song.

Did they find the Major's old tweets?
She had some very interesting opinions on Israel.
It was looking to be a decent replacement for Blacklight Retribution, but the developers killed the game in a single update. The game had a healthy 1000-1200 concurrent players daily, but that single fucking shit update killed the game in less than a month. Only after a week it went down to 100 players, and a month or two later they announced that they were getting shut down. The gameplay was pretty solid for a free to play fps. There were some balancing issues, but it wasn't anything that bad before the shitty update. All people wanted was a cooperative PvE gamemode and loadouts that would let players switch between operators in the middle of a match. And so the developers just ruined the game. I'm still mad.
I just wanted to play the game offline, I fucking love hacking tanks while trying to not get caught
And they just imported seburo weapons too before the fuck up. I just want to have nice things, why does everything I like have to fail.
