You just have a vote to choose the protagonist and their mecha. Then you let people vote on route splits and let them determine 2 or 3 of the characters you take on missions. It would be hell to make but it would be pretty simple.

Heck cheat the hell out of the main file. Its not like there are any skill points or anything. Just make it so you get all the secrets and give yourself enough money so you can upgrade whatever units people want you to use.

I have no idea what they are going to put in the next game in order to raise the stakes. Diebuster could be close but I'm not sure of another series that could take the game to such a level of insanity.

The team building screen shows every unit with or without a pilot. Just move the units that don't have pilots to the bottom of the screen out of the teams that will deploy next game.

Now I want to see a gimmick game where they change all the plots to make the usual enemies into the good guys and have you control them.

The noble army of Zeon combines forces with noted freedom fighter Dr. Hell to defeat the evil Earth Federation and free Japan from the iron fisted tyranny of Mazinger Z and Getter Robo.

Also Getter Energy is basically depicted as an Eldritch Horror most of the time. Heck one of the enemies in the manga are guys coming back in time to destroy Getter Robo before it can evolve into Getter Emperor which is usually depicted as not a very nice robot.

Oh, god, is that the project this YJ clown signed on to? Abort. Abort now.

And dear lord, don't crowdsource translation. Z is a large, coherent body of work that needs a lot of integration and context at every step, not to mention a good team of writers with a grasp of style. YJ has none of these things. I've seen his work on Z3 (what there was of it), he has basically no Japanese comprehension at all, let alone a fraction of the ability to manage a translation project of this size, scope, and complexity.

For the record, I personally would not set out to do Z3. (This is partly because I'm not done with it and I would want to play the hell out of it, and the other Z games, in preparation to understand all the plots' points and vectors before I even thought of putting words to paper.)

e: if I had to crowdsource a text-heavy RPG I really liked for some reason, I sure wouldn't choose GameFAQs as my talent pool. I remember being the kind of kid who hung out on GameFAQs. I wouldn't trust that guy within five miles of a translation project.

I don't think people want all the nuances and gritty details of the story. If they are like me they just like having a general idea of what's going and who is saying what to who.

You know what I'm thinking? Combattler V.

Rand, Setsuko, Crowe, Hibiki and Z3.2's original (or Esther) and AG as pseudo-Ropett!

I'll take that or the King of Braves GaoSphereGar. They've already got the lion.

Real talk though if they just have the GaoGaiGar Final characters be warped in from the end of their story I will not complain.

If they found some way in the story to break the no double of the same character rule we could have some pretty sweet combo attacks. Just imagine you are on a stage and all seems lost when Mazinger, Great Mazinger, and Grandizer rocket punch through the dimensional walls and team up with Shin Mazinger and Zeus to just lay waste to a boss.

Also if Dancouga doesn't come back next game so we get that sweet brofist move again this series is dead to me.

Much as I'd like to see it, I don't expect Build Fighters in Z3.2 since they just announced a second season. I doubt they'd want to include only the first half of a series in their finale, since it'd make Build Fighters hard to include in the following series.

While I agree that Build Fighters won't be in Z3 saying they won't use it because they are making a new season is a crazy thing to say when they have used the Rebuild movies twice.

Caros posted:

I did consider that, but I guess for me the difference is that they know the new Build Fighters series would be over probably some time in early 2015 so its probably easier to wait. Waiting for Rebuild to finish would mean not touching Eva until somewhere around 2062.

You must really be an optimist to think they will finish the Eva movies this century.

I wish they'd give bosses multiple themes. One that's more dramatic for when they first show up and threaten the team and a more upbeat one for when the team gets pumped up and rallies together to beat the boss.

So after watching episode 7 of Unicorn I'm expecting some pretty good crossover material between it and 00. The real question is if they let us use the Banagher Unicorn hybrid and the ELS Qan[T] for multiple stages or they just make them show up for the last stage like the Nirvash spec 3 or the Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann.

I still think Z1 beats it. Not a fan of the squad system, not having Wide formation makes enemy squads take too long to kill even if you have good ALL weapons.

Yeah the thing that killed me the most in Alpha 2 and 3 was that it took so darn long to kill things for most of the game.

Maybe I just played the game weird. I played the Alpha games after Z so part of it was probably that I really wanted some sort of Wide formation attack that let me hit the whole enemy squad.

I've heard MX was super easy, but did Dendoh have something as silly as Inertial Canceller? The drat thing feels as strong as an A.T. Field for god's sakes.

I gave the full energy every turn part to Gunbuster just so it would have energy to use attacks after blocking 10 hits a turn.

Yes but it will probably be destroyed immediately to form the Shin Ryukooh or be made into boxer parts for the Exbein.

Grungusts are the best units in the game though.

Perfectio had a ballin theme and any guy whose final attack is to pop out of his mech to attach on foot should be respected not feared. Coincidentally Chirico is the best character in Z3.

The Geminia is apparently ridiculously huge, standing at 144.7 meters.

Edit: That or someone mixed the values between weight and height.

They just wanted something to compete with the Neo Zeong.

Speaking of big robots why does the main character's robot in Z3 get so much bigger when it changes form? The whole game I thought it was just transforming but when if looked through the library it was actually getting much larger and a lot heavier.

1st Stage Midboss posted:

I dunno how it'd fit into Z3.2, but Rebuild 3.0 would work great as part of a standalone game's cast (once the last movie gives it an ending to work with). Sure, it'd only give you a couple of robots and its plot wouldn't provide many stages, but what it would perfectly frame "here's the first space stage" and "here's your first carrier", and setting-wise it'd be an easy fit for any game where the world's kind of messed up (i.e. most every SRW ever).

Which one was the GBA SRW where the whole world was horrible and you had to join forces with Axis out of necessity? I would like to see another game like that with 3.0.
