Of course it can work. It just needs to be true to what its inspirations are. But it's also niche, and needs something of an auteur touch and dedication to truly work IMO.

There's no such thing. You're either a cyborg or you're not. Even a mechanical finger technically defines someone as a cyborg.

Granzort should have had a sequel. Also to milk the series into Super Robot Wars. Hopefully also bring in the Gundam Build series, particularly Build Divers Re:RISE, to make Rabi mellow Hiroto out just like Wataru to Ange.
I love how it's evolving in each series to reflect the tech of current times(PHS in Chou and smartphone in 2020).
Honestly I think this is mostly an experiment in different media channels to see how web novel and short web episodes perform with fans.

It's nice that the anime at least was simulcast. But, I do wish the webnovels and stuff were translated too. I mean, that's par for the course. It's not like they insta-translated any of the Gundam manga or anything recently either.

Still. Feels weird to explicitly do a multimedia project and only partly make the stuff readily available.

Something about language drift because UC is supposed to be way, way in the future.

Either way, I love how Sleggar's portrayed in The Origin, his squad of redshirts aside. The panel where he reaches for Cameron's glasses is a meme in itself; he spraypaints an "S" on his second GM after his custom got CHAR'd; and he even makes the fucking Guntank look kinda cool after how many volumes of it being dead weight.

I MUST share them? I don't have to share shit nlike I said, they were widely available back in the day period it's not my fault no one paid attention and grabbed them at the time period but uploading Chinese versions to a website that is predominantly supposed to be JAPANESE BASED MATERIAL IS REALLY FREAKING STUPID AND S***** FOR MOST PEOPLE THAT WANT THE ORIGINAL

I hoped that we could come here and reason together. And as a reasonable man I'm willing to do whatever is necessary to find a peaceful solution to these problems.

No one gives a shit about if they were "widely available" back in the day (which is questionable at best since you are probably lying or exaggerating). Either share what you have, or stop complaining. No one really cares all that much that you have Japanese version of the art books. You are the kind of guy who goes out to a Chinese restaurant, then complains that you could make better Japanese food at home. Go home then. No one is stopping you.

Same thing here. No one is stopping you from sharing. Bragging that you have them means very little to us. The Chinese edition is a "good enough" substitute for most. We have the art, and the information (which we can translate to english). You coming on here and hating on everyone trying to make an effort to share ....only makes you look like a jackass. You aren't some awesome collector we should all bow down to. Share what you have or GTFO because we don't care since you aren't contributing.

People who don't CONTRIBUTE have NO right to complain about things are done. Go back to bed grandpa. No you aren't even worthy of the title grandpa. You are just a useless bum.
Are you seriously insulting us because we are working with what have available which is the Chinese versions.... but then bragging about how you have the Japanese versions of the artbooks.... And then refusing to share or help out? Wow.

How the fuck come there aren't any two-seater MSes or hell, there aren't many two-seater mecha in general besides? Why is this the case? IRL fighter jets and shit sometimes have double seating for division of labour, which would definitely help in a giant robot. Surely a guy to help the pilot look out for enemies would be a benefit?

well being in same universe not an absolute requirement for series, I mean mentioned EDF has 3 different ones mainline wise.
But overall thinking about control methods and overall gameplay loop I can agree that they may be too different to count as one series. If anything Mecha MG is a spinoff title.
>You've got a whole new game for a completely different market.
I think the problem is that said market is small, therefore it's a risk taking.
With current HD trends, people won't accept half assed 3D models of giant robots, considering scale. They can joke about latest EDF games looking like "ps2/ps3" titles, but let's not kid ourselves that those assets are not made for HD screens.
So for full game you'll need like 10-20 huge detailed models like Balam or Barga. Or even more detailed considering next gen. It won't take just a few months to model and make sure they work, that's for sure. (Keep in mind - making working model for a game is very different than just making 3D model in general, way more restrictions apply)
And that their movements are not just few combo attacks which are in EDF. Which further increases workload just on mecha part.

So while reused enviroment and some destruction would help, I feel like it would be really small portion of assets they can reuse. Things were easier in PS2 era. You could hide shit behind lowres screens and don't bother with textures all that much. Things were basic.
Now you can't hide shit, and it really costs a penny.
I bet we would jave chance of seeing new RAD if EDF wasn't such safe investment.
After all, like we or not, giant robots are not that popular anymore. Market is there, but probably just don't worth the risk when they can work on safe series instead.
So while I share sentiment of having more giant robot games - the better, I don't see RAD coming back for now, at least as cheap reused asset flip. Maybe if they decide to take a break after 6?
Oh no. They'd never bother resurrecting a franchise that has been dead since 2002 or 2006 at the latest at this point. Especially with Mecha as a genre doing as poorly as it does. They're the EDF company now. Been that way since Zangeki no Reginleiv.

I just don't know, man. I know mecha aren't the easiest things to design and model; but Mecha MG had dozens, and the original RAD got by with only 3. I find it hard to imagine that with a period of maybe 18 months that they couldn't produce a product that is functional and satisfying.
Mecha MG was DS game
DS had lowres screens.
Lowres screens - means less resources used. Not to mention lowpoly.
With 3DS being officially dead since recently, lowres screens are gone from the market. Meaning low-risk experimental games by experienced companies mostly gone too.
Sure, there is a case like Octopath, but despite it success - doesn't seem a lot of companies following suit. Experimenting with restricted visual style is more of indie game scene.
And still, it's 18 months of paying people salary with good chance of never getting out of red with game not paying for itself. In today's shitfest of economy that's even more unlikely.

Ressurecting wise, well, as you could notice - that's quite common trend nowadays. So digging up old franchise is not that uncommon. I think one of realistic situations is if they'd tried to port original RAD on modern platforms and see how it goes.
I fucking loved this game and I'm most disappointed that none of my friends would play the multiplayer with me because I played the game more and thus had an advantage

Going back and watching the 81 OVA and Igloo, its insane that Zeon stayed defending.
154 replies and 22 images omitted. Click here to view.
>Like how does Zeon move a colony to the earth to drop it and the Federation just sits and watches?
They don't sit and watch. At that point, the Feds have already taken a severe beating and are reorganizing their remaining fleets to take the colony and the Zeon fleet escorting it head on.

>How fast can they move them? These things aren't just sitting 100 miles off earth orbit, shouldn't it take weeks to arrive?
Not sure, but operation British takes about a week's time, from when the colony first moves to the confirmation that the colony has impacted earth. Most of the colonies are -roughly- the same distance away from the Earth as the moon is, depending on the lagrange point.

>And then, why haven't they built some kind of orbital defense grid like macro cannons or some shit to defend against a future attack?
The feds did have superweapons at least twice. In 0083's operation stardust, the Federation deploys a "solar system" focused mirror weapon but the firing sequence was disrupted and prematurely shut down when the control ship was destroyed by a state of the art mobile armor that the enemy wasn't supposed to have. In CCA, Bright complains that laser cannon support from one of the nearby Sides to help stop 5th Luna's drop never arrived, we see in a scene that Char had some Neo Zeon fanatics blow up the laser's control room in some kind of suicide attack. IIRC in the Beltorchika's Children novel, the Hi-Nu Gundam has some kind of massive beam launcher weapon that needed power cables from the Ra Cailum hooked up to it for use, no idea how well that worked against Axis. Other somewhat suitably powerful weapons existed but were somehow unavailable - the Gryps colony laser still existed at the time of CCA but no idea what it's status was, and the Nahel Argama and its hyper mega particle cannon were unavailable due to the ship probably being in the middle of renovations.
Fun fact, Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan sent out peace offers repeatedly. The Allies rebuffed them wanting nothing but unconditional surrender. Zeon's attempt to put out a peace offer got fried by Gihren. They didn't even get that far. It's not a matter of Zeon being insane for defending, it's that it came to that and aside from a tiny amount of its high command, the thought hadn't even entered ther minds that you could just give up.
White Base in itself does not resemble a Corps. A corps remember is two fucking divisions, a division is at least two brigades and a brigade is at least two regiments. White Base doesn't even have a full fucking flight on board or troop if you want to go for cav terminology. Maybe one understrength flight. Maybe you could even bump it up to an understrength squadron if you take it's utmost strength as per origin. I don't even know what you call it organisation wise if we apply what it hasin the film to any real world orgtable.. It's basically just a ship on its own with a smattering of random craft.
>And then, why haven't they built some kind of orbital defense grid like macro cannons or some shit to defend against a future attack? How did retards like these even win?

Minovsky particles are all over the place which disrupts long range communications. This makes long range weapons like missiles (that rely on constant data and communications) hopelessly inaccurate, useless, and even potentially dangerous since they can veer of course and hit the wrong target. Imagine a long range nuclear missile getting confused, losing it's GPS connection, then crashing down onto Earth, and nuking a city.

And any communications are spotty (at best). So weapon satellites, and unmanned orbital defenses are out of the question. You wouldn't be able to reliably control, or communicate with them. So everything has to be done the "old fashioned" way. With a fleet of ships, or with a weapon that is supervised by a full time crew. There isn't much automation because it isn't reliable. Everything useful must be manned, and operated by people for it to be dependable.
Reminder that the Gundam had little impact on the final battle's outcome and Amuro ended up having zero kills against the Zabi aside from Dozle Zabi.
