Original Generations 2 came out just last year, and it is literally the best SRW game I've ever played to date. It has amazing graphics/animations, incredible music, and even somehow manages to have an engaging and entertaining plot against all possible odds. I would strongly suggest not letting OG Gaiden spoil this for you because you are seriously missing out if you skip it.

But hey, welcome to the thread! Get hype for Z3 next week.

Agreed with this. Especially after the delays and them being weirdly quiet about it, I was assuming it would be hot garbage.

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.

But what are its stats like? Is it built like a real or a super?

The Combo/Tag system honestly does a lot to make the gameplay more fun since you have valid reasons to think about your attack order and such.

Can you/someone go into detail about that stuff for us feeble non-japanese readers? Worst part about new systems is that I have no idea what to do for weeks.

Are you stuck on something? 90% of them are just "Kill everything."

Considering 2nd OGs ditches the Kurogane around the midpoint of the game, I think we can assume that they are definitely making room for the Valstork.

Especially when Z had like a dozen battleships, and Z2s had like 5 or 6. It cant kill them to give us another one.

Well I just got my copy today, much sooner than I expected. Now I need to get my custom soundtrack music actually on my PS3. Is there anything special I have to do beyond dumping it into my music folder?

Apparently it only allows 4 pages of music or something? It will just display the first 4 pages, so if youve got tons you just wont see the rest.

Based on what I read, Char joins you at the end regardless. I think it affects other secrets like whether you get the 'Fight Destiny' route or get to keep the Kshatriya.

You definitely get Char regardless. I didnt trust him and got "Accept Destiny" and Char still joined.

Anyone know the major differences in the final route split? The choice reads kind of heavy and I'm just wondering

Accepting fate vs defying your fate?

Wiki seems to indicate you get at least a few secrets on the second route I guess.

Secrets, different stages, etc, but the last 5 stages or so are still the same it seems. Not quite as drastic as the Zueth/Zero routes.

Yeah I just don't see the point of taking the accept fate route basically but I guess that's par for the course.

Its like the other end game routes, you need to meet requirements to take it.

Personality-wise Marguerite seemed generally fine (I say this knowing little to no dialogue and going off her attack line delivery only) but good lord that cheesecake design.

Not really though. There are plenty of characters, even in shows represented in SRW, that step outside that role (sometimes they have their own issues, but still), and even if there weren't going 'well that's just the way things are' isn't a good way of deflecting criticism.

I have never seen the show, but oh how the Z games have made me hate Aquarion so much. It manages to combine the weak armor of a real robot with the inability to dodge anything of a super robot all rolled into one big bag of suck. Then the bastards decided to force me to use it a over and over.

Sorry, Aquarion is amazing hth.

Prism posted:

It's really noticably not very good until stage 28, when the Element powers of the non-main pilot turn on with the Element System. For instance


those aren't on Amata, so you don't get them at the same time as Mugen Punch until then. (It also doesn't start with Mugen Punch, so if he just got it he's stuck with what, Flying Love Attack?)

It also hurts that he starts with 0 kills. His Ace bonus isnt the best but it still takes a while to get.

Well since I haven't seen a list yet for Z3 on what the pilot skills translate to (And I can't read Japanese) I haven't spent a single PP the entire game and I'm now entering mission 53 in Z3. I figure I have gone this far without them, I may as well finish it up and save that for new game+. I have been doing unit upgrades of course and have maxed out over a page of units. It's been easy going so far until I hit 52. Which took me 4 tries to get through because enemies were making a beeline at Aquarion and that jet it comes with and the boss types had extreme range and with some luck could one shot either of them, particularly the plane. On the plus side when I finally did it (By hiding both of them behind a wall of my units the entire mission and making sure I trigger enemy reinforcements at the beginning of a turn so I could toast any who appeared inside the wall) I had over 2 million credits to blow on my other units.

Since I can't read Japanese I tend to brute force everything and not use a lot of spirit powers, though I do recognize the damage up and to hit up ones so I will use those for some extra oomph on bosses.

I'll try to give Aquarion a better shot next time through but even early before everyone else's upgrade outpaced it, it seemed awfully squishy.

You know you can put units inside the battleships right?


edit: vvvvv Aquarion can fly when the Element system activates.

At the end of Z3 do they address Nia at all? Is she still dying or do they just ignore it?

Yeah, that's it in a nutshell. They've done so great in the past. Even prior games before OGs2 had generic boss themes like The Arrow of Destiny to mix it up a bit.

I also miss all the Insalaum music.

The Arrow of Destiny is still so amazing.
