I hope they release an OST for Z3.

I also hope they have good music.

So I take it that the new PS3/Vita game would be the best jumping on point if I've never played one of these games before (apart from like a translated ROM of one of the SNES ones)?

If you don't care about the story, it'll probably be as good a point as any other SRW.

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.'

BlitzBlast posted:

Did Z3 change EVOL's plot at all? Considering how Z1 used Aquarion, it'd be really awkward if it didn't.

From what I can tell:

The plot of Z1 Aquarion and its relation to EVOL is quickly shoved into a corner by way of Time Prisons and no one remembering Z1 Aquarion anyway.

As for changing EVOL's plot:

Kagura and Zessica get more interaction so their hookup at the end doesn't appear to come totally out of left field. Jin survives and is not stuffed into a frog. That's about it.

Looks like it, except Kei from Orguss. When people see something that reminds them of the way the world used to be they seem to get headaches.

To expand on this:

When Kei first runs into the group, everyone at first comments that the Orguss looks familiar before they remember him. Kei, meanwhile, looks at the Aquarion from EVOL and is about to greet Apollo when he gets a headache. After that headache passes he doesn't recognize the Aquarion anymore.

Several people, like Char, appear to realize that there is something deeply wrong with the world as is, even if they don't remember specifics.

Speaking of Kei, I loving love this guy to death, but did they need to add that girl and her shrill voice to the mix to almost every single attack ahhhhhhhh

The ultimate kicker was doing his ALL attack and she's in the cut-in for the dynamic kill so I know she's never going away.

At least it's not as bad as Mokyuun.

There are some animations that are definitely off, and it's not just the FMP units. (Off the top of my head, both Dancouga and Mazinger Z have some questionable work.)

But that's par for the course with so many people working on these games; not everything is going to be Nu Gundam.

Can someone explain why CCA even happens in this?

Big spoilers:

Char realizes something is wrong with the world as-is and wants to purposefully engineer an Axis Shock in order to free the world from the illusion/Time Prison deal.

Haman and Full Frontal don't know anything about this and genuinely think ramming a giant asteroid into earth is a good idea, because souls bound by gravity blah blah blah, so Char is basically conning them to get what he wants.

Was that just original Z? I read there was something else that happened in Z3, and due to being in week two of learning Japanese, I can understand a thing.

Based on what I saw, Big O in Z3 is supposed to represent what happens when you end up Time Prison'd or along those lines.

Note that my Japanese isn't so hot so I might have misinterpreted things rather badly.

SRWZ3-1 sold 270K across both versions in its first week in Japan (Breakdown is 142K for PS3 and 128K for Vita).

For comparison SRWZ2-1 sold 307K in its first week and SRWZ2-2 sold 265K in its first week.

None of these numbers take digital sales into account.

Kanos posted:

They really should have if only because the first half of the game suffers from a horrific drought of non-poo poo mobile suits to spread among your pilots. The Delta Plus is really good and the ReGZ is competent enough in a support role but the ReZELs are the best of what you've got left and man they're not very good.

Well you get the Destiny (without it's best attack or Shinn's SEED mode) and a gimped Unicorn pretty early too!

... Yeah, the Gundam route is probably the hardest of the three earlygame route splits.

Haha, what? Do they give any justification for that or does he just not have it when you get him and they act like he's getting it for the first time later?

I would've liked to see that ominous remix they did once, though. I think it was called Aimo O.C.
