The cockpit is probably one of the most comical things I've seen in a mech in a very loooooong time. This is Gintama levels of mecha parody to me, unfortunately it's not a parody!!!!

While it's certainly in poor taste, it's not really much different from a Godannar cockpit. Suzune's pilot suit isn't much different from a Godannar one either, come to think of it.

It's stupid as hell but so are cut-ins of gigantic swaying breasts and poo poo so

Listen, I liked Godannar. It wasn't like MuvLuv where all the dumb fanservice was there, yet you were expected to take it super serious. Godannar was dumb and fun as hell, but the cockpits and pilot suits it had need to stay in Godannar.

I actually agree with you wholeheartedly, but it's hard to feel legitimately outraged over a super robot wars female lead having stupid fanservice attached to her at this point. We crossed over that line around Alpha 3 with Kusuha and Selena's pendulum boobs and Selena's BDSM ninja outfit.

It's the sad fact that the venn diagram of "people who like mecha games" and "people who are likely to buy anime girl hug pillows" has a non-zero overlap.

Yeah, at this point the breast bounce cut it in pretty well tied with SRW at this point and people would complain about it being toned down. It's just a darn shame is all.

I just want it known that the fact this game uses Pride for SEED Destiny is probably one of my favorite details.

There's an image posted on /m/ with someone called Chocola actually asking "Isn't that a girl's name?" to you-know-who, with the usual rebuttal.

Is this Chocola an original or just a new series that I'm not aware of?

Bigger plot spoilers:

Sphere based on Gemini is 'The Quarreling Twins' which implies that whoever uses that sphere (or both halves of the sphere?) is doomed to forever fight each other.

Supporting that idea, there's a hobo-looking dude pilotign a machine called the 'Gemina.'

So the final upgrade will be a combination? Hope they don't skimp out and go the SRW L route then.

Also the massive influx of unsourced rumors is so great. If you ace every single Zeta and Unicorn pilot, Amuro will get the Hi-Nu!

The Beastmen didn't go extinct or anything. Yoko was fighting random Beastman mooks in G-L canon near the end of the series.

To add on to this, one of Viral's most iconic scenes is fighting his last stand in the Enkidu post-timeskip several years after Lord Genome's defeat. The entire big prison complex under Kamina City Simon gets thrown into is mostly for beastmen malcontents who don't want to integrate and want to keep fighting the old war.

Basically beastmen still being kicking is at least as plausible as OG games featuring DC remnants four games after Bian Zoldark's death.

I keep seeing the "Tag Tension" Meter on the screen when you receive experience for defeating a unit. It has 2 stars next to it, is this like a relationship between the two units gauge?

Pretty sure that's just the meter for a Maximum Break.

This is incorrect.

The Tag system is actually a twofold system.

You can spend those Tag Points to perform special Tag Commands. They include giving you Continious movement (i.e: move again if killing an enemy), increasing your PP or Z-Chip gain, or restoring 15 SP to both members of the tag.

You can also spend the Tag Points to perform Maximum Break.

Tag seems to go up every 2-3 kills or when you gain a level. I may be misunderstanding this since I've only seen a little of it so far.

The other system so far is the Combo System:
Every time you kill an enemy team you gain +5% to damage and rewards (Money/Z-Chips) for your next attack. If that attack also kills an enemy team you gain another +5% up to a maximum of 25% (I think?) However failing to kill an enemy resets the combo.

Isamu showed up in UX but only as part of an attack.

Also not unless Max Jenius died offscreen he ain't.

As you should be. UX has great series interaction but awful animations, cutsin aside.

Also a small Z2/Z3 spoiler: Lelouch is still Lelouch so that confirms Trust Zero as the canon Z2 route.

As much as I like SRW music I am probably going to replace all the synth versions with their actual instrumental versions. Mobile suit definitely sounds like they slowed the tempo too, I didn't quite want to believe it until I compared the two versions closer. I wonder why they tinker with the BGMs like that.
