Fun fact: The only robot in the entire SRW franchise that has a perfect attendance record (outside of the OG games) is Boss Borot. Unless you consider the two Z2 chapters separate stories.

No, apparently Boss Borot was absent from the first SRW, but he's been in every single one since.

Holy cow, it didn't even occur to me that this was a path split. And yeah, for those of you who vote, that means 9 units won't get to deploy. We jumped into the meat of the game quite fast.

And it's only going to get worse by far in regards to unit deployment. There's a reason why the Squad system was a thing, and by god I wish it'd stayed around for Z2.

Oh Dancougar, I've missed you so.

Also yeah, an intermission sounds good right now. We've got so many people at this point we probably need a moment to sort through them.

Clearly we should send the Ptolemy off to farm kills every chance we get.

The Ptolomaios has no weapons at the moment, however, since this is a New Game + run, and we can see Sumeragi has kills, we can probably infer it picks a weapon up at some point.

That's one hell of a stage, that you actually overcome all these odds (when the heroes of Gundam 00 failed at it, no less!)

Admittedly, you have a lot more dudes than Celestial Being did during that fight. It's not literally 4 vs. 120 anymore, and that changes a lot of that fight.

If you don't like God Mars killing things with the power of 80s animation, you have no soul.

Also the opening cinematics for Z2 show everything in 3D but all of the actual animations are 2D. Why must Banpresto tease us like this?!

And even there Godmars had no real animation to speak of. It's amazing how thoroughly they stuck to the joke.

'Wasn't really great' is about the only way to describe Orguss, as someone who regularly watches all the shows that get into SRW. It certainly wasn't boring-- it managed to keep my attention throughout the whole series, which is more than I can say for God Mars-- but it was really only barely above average. But to my knowledge (which really just means I don't want to look it up, but I'm pretty sure) Orguss was never in a SRW game before Z.

Orguss indeed was never in an SRW game before (or aside from) Z.

Yes, well, kind of, but it's hard to play Z1 and Z2 without having Orguss spoiled. I've only watched a few episodes of Orguss but I have a vague idea of what's going to happen already.

The same could be said of any anime in this game. This is probably not a good game series to follow if you care about remaining unspoiled.

Speaking of Lunamaria, I wish she was a better unit, because her name is Lunamaria loving Hawke. Someone with a name like that should be piloting a super robot, not the Sloppy Seconds Gundam.

It sorta sucks that the SEED guys' asses are glued to their seats, because Lunamaria's a good enough pilot that you want to give her a try in one of the other mechs. At least, she was good enough for me in Regeneration that she got screen time for at least two-thirds of the game.

Oh, Aquarion. All I did with it was give it a couple of Morale boosting gear to get it up to 130 will at the start of a mission, Hit and Away, and all the range boosting items I could get a hold of.

1-17 range Mugen Punch every single turn. It was amazing.

Apollo was basically my go-to guy for blasting guys I really didn't want in a formation out of it. It's ridiculous how much range and power the Mugen Punch has at times. My only problem with him is that he kinda-sorta zones all the other snipers if you play him that way.

The only reason she probably got the short end of the stick in Z was because they couldn't get her voice actress back.

This is literally the exact reason, by the by. It's also why Dearka didn't make an appearance: the two washed their hands of the roles.

Big O is a pretty massive game-changer if you're used to money hoarding, because you don't have to worry about repair costs so long as he's deployed and alive by the end of the map. You don't really think about it either until you see it because it's a tactical RPG, usually zero sacrifices is the way to go. Big O basically frees you to zerg maps with a minimum of caution and it's pretty amazing for that.

A thing that seems to have been glossed over is that the specV only has two attacks. And they're both garbage. It takes skill to gently caress up your upgrade so bad it's worse than what you used to have.

Did they seriously foreshadow Jigoku-Hen with Marin and Jiron's dialogue there? Z3 series inclusion spoiler: I'm assuming that the mention of the ice caps is about Evangelion. I like how they've made the dialogue retroactively more amusing.

Part of me wonders just how far they've been planning ahead with this series.
