Wait, if Zero gives free PP, does Watta still give free PP? Because if so I'm just gonna toss them both in the same squad and call it the moral support brigade.

Zero gives you PP when you use Tactical Command, Watta gives PP at the end of the stage.

It does take a crapload of Will to activate, but that's okay because it's Ryouma and he's going to get a lot of will anyway.

Also, I'm a fan of the Nightengale purely because it's a mix of the Zeong, The O, and the Qubeley in Char Custom colors. That thing is the final boss for the classic UC timeline.

It shouldn't need to be fixed in the first place, god drat it. The Raphael didn't have a chance to do anything in the movie besides fly in and blow itself up instantly, SRW is supposed to be where dreams come true.

You want units that got completely shafted, look at the Mordred and Tristan in Z2.2. Anya's animations are bland as gently caress and Gino's are actively terrible, and they each have 2 attacks total. The Sutherland Sieg and Vincent weren't exactly awe-inspiring either.

At least you can get Gino up to like 20 move for shits.

I'm kinda disappointed that Mazinger doesn't have Kanjite Knight for its BGM, so I ended up just using the Z2 version until I can find a better instrumental version I guess. Was kinda tempted to use the SRW OE version for maximum trumpets. Will probably use Yuusou for Shin Getter once I get that. Otherwise, I'm gonna have to try out different tracks for the Zeta units because I'm not that big a fan of Senkou no Naka no MS.

I never watched the movie but I was surprised to see Lockon isn't even a sniper anymore. His mech is just guns guns guns and more guns. And two haros.

That's weird. Unlike Youtube, Vimeo has a rule right up front about stuff you upload being your own product. It should be there even less than it should be on Youtube.

Anyway, lots of flowers and boobs and stuff. About what I expected.

Kanjite Knight is in the game IIRC.

Eh, Gino and Anya join the fight against Lelouch in the canonical show. It makes sense for them to be on your side if you go up against Emperor Lelouch.

One thing I've wondered ever since I learned of Gundam Unicorn is, why is the Nu-Gundam's symbol a unicorn? What connection to they have? Or is it just completely accidental (from the writing point of view)?

The Nu Gundam's symbol is a unicorn because that is Amuro's insignia. It is Amuro's insignia because if you shorten Unicorn you get UC.

Also the Unicorn is essentially the successor to the Nu in that it further utilizes pscyhoframe, but beyond that they just named it that because reasons.

The unicorn could be a reference to Amuro's emblem, I wouldn't be surprised. As for why Amuro has it? it just looks swell

It's an A, for Amuro.

Edit: Oh I see, the unicorn is shown on the shield, the shoulder is just the A.

The emblem on the Nu's shield has always been more stylized since they have more room for flashy stuff.

Amuro's custom Zeta Gundam was also the White Unicorn. (Amuro's name while piloting it was "White Unicorn.")

It's probably not a coincidence but it is probably just following the usual trend of OYW references in Unicorn. Just like Full Frontal is made of Char references, Unicorn is made of Amuro references.

Of course Full Frontal is made of Char, but that's talked about plenty in the story. What's the connection between Unicorn and Amuro specifically? It was created as part of a plan started long before Amuro was born, right?

Of course not. Amuro's been around for 35 years, Unicorn only started like 5 years ago!

The Unicorn was the final part of said plan. It was made after CCA because psychoframe hadn't been invented yet.

There is no real connection between the Unicorn and Amuro beyond the name. Banagher and the Unicorn are pretty much just references to Gundam leads and lead suits as a whole.

There's no intentional in-universe connection. It's just unintentional, like how Banagher will drop an Amuro quote because of course he will.

The only super tenuous connection between Amuro and the Unicorn is that the Unicorn's psycoframe was made the same way the Nu Gundam's was.

It isn't really worth it. There's another item you can get later on which gives you money based on the damage you deal which is way more effective.

I'd just hold off unless you have a really good item unlocked. It isn't worth spending Z-Chips right away. The "1.2 damage at 130 morale" or the "Afterimage/Jammer/D-Fault" items are both great. The latter basically makes any auto-deploys worth using if nothing else.

I have both of those available, so I guess I'll choose the defensive one, for when a unit of mine just absolutely positively can't be destroyed.

edit: drat it, it didn't keep Aquarion from being destroyed in that last mission and causing a game over.

Hah just realized that I never have to see the zero system activation ever again because Heero already hits the stage with it activated. I'll probably get the Chimera's Membership Card for him just to see how far I can push it, considering that I've already fallen into the trap of making him the best pilot.
