IT'S SHOWTIME!

I'm not feeling that spoiler design at all either . I'm hoping the OG characters are interesting because I think the mech in general looks awful, not to mention the male character looks like Durandel from Destiny.

If it shows up in Stage 14 it proooobably isn't the final upgrade even for this game.

I'm just writing it off more as an special attack moreso then upgrade. Similar to how the Brasta got the VFX things.

How tall is regular Genion? Because Genion GAI is 45m tall, which is firmly in Super Robot territory. So much for "another lovely real!"

Even in that case Brasta got that around stage 35~, the usual upgrade area. Stage 14 of 60+ is way way too early for a final powerup.

It also has some cool kung-fu action, especially with regular Genion's Storm Bringer attack.

Storm Bringer is shown in an /m/ webm video, in the #101 General Thread.

Genion gets upgrades at:

Stage 4: Suzune as a copilot and Stormbringer
Stage 14: GAI Mode which is limited like NTD/Gravion/Dancougar Nova were at some point

I think the next logical upgrade is a permanent GAI mode and not a whole different unit.

Edit: The branched upgrade is a lie. No one who has the game has gotten past stage 20 so far.

I like to imagine they're hyper sensitive to people complaining about how boring Crowe ended up being and are pulling out all the stops this time to make the original crazy.

Crazy rear end cockpit design aside, Storm Bringer is awesome and I'm cautiously optimistic for Chunky Legs Super Mode.

I liked the Giganscudo in OGs, but that may have been because it stood out so much versus all those Reals, plus it was stupidly strong when it got into range.

In the Neo system you do not begin with full SP as a stage starts. Instead it gains naturally ala Will/Morale gains, with increased gains in combat...

Neo and OE also had leveled spells where instead of Focus you had Focus Lv1/Lv2/Lv3 where each had a different effect and SP cost, but Z3 appears to have replaced this with "plus" versions of the spell on certain characters instead.
Z3's version seems to be tweaked as follows
- Half SP + 5 SP per turn, instead of being combat-based. Which I guess they learned from OE that the system as it is in NEO kind of screws over Reals.
- No leveled Spirits as mentioned. The "+" version of Spirits such as Focus+ casts it on both members of a squad instead.

I actually don't mind that cockpit too much. I mean yeah it's stupid and badly designed for something that moves like that, but I was expecting something much worse from everyone's reactions to it.

Now, Suzume's piloting outfit, on the other hand... I mean, I've played Selena's route, so I'm not really surprised. Just kinda disappointed.

How does Z3 fit into the Z continuum anyway? I have a friend who was mildly interested in playing but would have to start with the PS3 title because of system limitations. This is a Japanese fluent friend, as a random aside.

It's a sequel, after the world from Z1 and Z2 have merged.

Isn't Z1 a PS2 classic that's downloadable from the PSN? Have him download that, Z is awesome.

Okay, my JP PSN account is all "charged" (still dunno why they use that word for when you put money INTO it) and if its like previous times I have done this, it will show up sometime after work tomorrow, but NOT early enough that it will finish downloading/installing before I have to go to sleep. Oh well.

Whatever 1-2pm or so Japan time is in EST.

edit: it would finish in time if PS3 downloading was as fast as Steam, but alas, it's like a cocktail straw in comparison. And then installing takes another million years too.

I think that looks FANTASTIC. I'm almost getting a GGG feel from it based on the wing on its back. Love the coloring too. Its attacks are loving awesome, already way more badass than Li-Brasta's.

Also there is a Z3 stream up right now - http://www.twitch.tv/natsuyatamashii

Just from early stages....this original is already competing with the hot blooded manliness of RaiOh, and RaiOh is basically my favorite original ever...

I honestly like this original more than the Brasta so far from what little I've seen. It feels like this one has a bit more articulation to it. Also no 30 second long sniper sequence.

Yeah, the attacks are short and sweet and seem to have lots of impact. The little contact flourishes on its kung fu combo or whatever are really sharp.

I agree. Color me wrong on my initial "Welp good job on another generico mcrealrobot BP" because this one feels pretty decent. The finisher has a lot of oomph to it without taking 40 seconds to animate(and reminds me a lot of Valhawk).
