I think Konami's boss genuinely despises Metal Gear and refuses to do anything cool with it even though it would make a ton of money. That's the only thing that makes sense.

Neat! This game takes place in the same world as the Langrisser series I think.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Langrisser_IV

>An aged wizard, Gizlof, whose 2 main goals in life: immortality and world domination, already had the wheels of his great scheme in motion. Through a pact with the dark god, Gendrasil, and the knowledge obtained, he began construction of a new piloted Guyframe unit as well as experiments on clones and modified humans.

On that note, if we're on the subject of Masaya mechs, Vixen 357 isn't well known but I always give it a shoutout where I can, it's been fantranslated and the later levels are very difficult for an early 90s SRPG.

Well I don't hate them, and I'm pleasantly surprised to see that this game has a PC version so it might actually be playable. Might give it a try.
>>
>>19280414
as far as I could tell I was facing entire games of low level bots, at least for the first few ranks.
I dunno if that's common practice for a BR or just small player base ones, but it was essentially no challenge until I started playing against what I assumed were real people.
Also I didn't like that you had to summon your mech and that it could be destroyed. I would have preferred if you were just in a mech the entire time.
But it has a nice variety of mechs in all the different staple styles, even SD. But its a gacha so you have to roll for most of them.

Yeah, don't get me wrong, I am no fan of the Chinese government, but it's only the last few years that people started freaking out like "Oh shit I can't touch any Chinese product for any reason" after using them for decades with no complaints and most likely still possessing some.

>>19282950
To me it was "that ugly looking game promoted on the N64 box" and never cared one bit about it, but then as I said I tried it many years after and I found it incredibly quirky and fun, you never knew what new way to solve a stage or crazy thing would happen next. It just felt like one of those crazy 90s animes.
Nonetheless I can totally see it not being for everyone, that's what happens with outlandish things, they either completely resonate with you ot they absolutely fail at it.

Is Another good? I vaguely remember it being one of those super popular anime back in za day but I never looked into it very much so I have no idea if it was some "so bad it's good" shitposting material or if people genuinely liked it. And it was really short so the talk about it seemed to fizzle out fast and I haven't seen anyone mention it in years.

I dunno if the clip I just watched is a huge spoiler but looking at the premise of the show it basically sounds like Final Destination in anime form with people dying constantly so I guess it's kind of whatever that I saw that.
>>
>>19282863
I'm less concerned about the chinese bit and more concerned about general gameplay. It's a battle royal, but you're fighting against bots? And there's the obvious gacha, I don't know if I'm going to end up getting boned by that.

Even Fortnite, by far the most popular battle royale, has random bots mixed in with normal players intentionally added by the devs because general interest in the genre has subsided so it's hard to find a full 100 players for a match. I'm not surprised this obscure mecha battle royale has a lot of bots.

It had multiple US releases across most platforms at the time. If you went to a pc store in the mid to late 80’s it was guaranteed to be running on a demo machine.

Mega Man itself may not be obscure, but when you talk about the series I doubt anyone's first, or even tenth thought would be Bruno.
