That's the design from SRW Alpha, as you can see in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xKV09ntGCdc at about 25 secs

Thank you! I didn't except alpha to have its own version of the design so i never thought to check. Glad I don't have to wonder any longer.

An Umasugi Wave original character called Moimoi I guess.

X Omega sure has turned into a dumping ground for all kinds of weird stuff. I heard Godzilla is going to be in it too.

From what I can see (on the phone), he's an original character that was created for an Umasugi Wave segment (Robot Academy, where Moimoi, the Rookie Robot, studies). The radio show has broken 500 episodes, so they're adding him into X-O as part of a limited event.

At this point, I half-expect something silly like Mecha-Obari or Robo-Terada to show up.

When you first meet her she says her name is Titty (Tytty or however you want to spell it) and then later she's Tempty of whatever emotion she's meant to be.

I just got Moon Dwellers in the mail today and I have some questions.

1. Singaporean PSN thing is just for DLC right? Otherwise I can just pop it in my PS4 and it'll work? I know the PS4 is region unlocked but is there any additional DRM I need to deal with?

2. Is there any DLC worth getting a Singaporean PSN over?

Yes, you can pop it into your console without trouble. There is no DLC at all.

I just got my copy too, and I guess there's the PS4 theme.

I don't know if it's a good theme or not, but I'll probably make an account just to grab it. I still can't get over actually owning a physical english (ostensibly) SRW game.

Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.

I can't speak for others, but this is going to be my first SRW since OG2, anything worth knowing before I jump is as far as mechanics? I'm especially curious as to how you determine what units are good to pair up and what I should be aiming for as far as upgrades.

General tips:

Accuracy should be the very first thing you upgrade on any unit. You'll want to give accuracy boosts as soon as you hit Hard mode or else you're going to be in for a very bad time. From there you'll want to upgrade Armor (for Supers) and Mobility (for anything dodgy), EN and weapons. Weapons are super-expensive to upgrade so consider only upgrading a boss killer or two until you get later into the game.

When picking what to upgrade consider if it is something you're going to use. The MP Gespensts for example are genuinely not worth upgrading as you CAN find a better unit for those pilots. Anything that is pilot-locked is usually a safe bet to upgrade without worrying about it getting replaced by a new unit.

When pairing up, making sure to keep the following in mind:

A) Both units need to be able to fly for the combined pair to fly.
B) Accelerate ("Quicken" in the English translation) is a very useful ability and you should try to spread it out.
C) Don't pair up units with combo attack. Combo attacks take up both actions and this also can hurt Maximum Breaks. Try to spread them out if you can.

It helps to try to match the ranges of ranged attacks, (P) attacks, and ALL attacks across the twin. It's tempting to pair e.g. Arado and Seolla, or Dygenguar and Aussenseiter, for reasons other than combinations, but practically it generally means any given combat action is not working for somebody.

Arado/Seolla and Kyosuke/Excellen pairs actually work out decently if you give Arado and Kyosuke equippable long range weapons. Rectangular launcher etc. But in practice if you're using both it's probably better to have Arado/Kyosuke and Seolla/Excellen and just always keep them together.

My current arrangement is Kyosuke+Arriere, Excellen+Seolla, and Arado+Latooni (Wildraubtier). I'm trying to find either another machine or another position for Lat though because Schnabel Assault doesn't really work with the setup that well, even though I love Stagbeetle Crusher + Blade Sai. It's a real struggle.

I do need to dig up a Rectangle Launcher for Kyosuke though. I keep forgetting.

I think the APT-LINK works on Fang Slasher but don't you still need TK for G Sword Diver and maybe Catapult Kick? I'm not entirely clear what no longer needs an actual psychic. I kind of feel like most of it is just to unlock the EX Exbein.

The Exbeins have a psuedo-TK system which allows anyone to use the attacks but not the built-in TK Field.

The ExEx is locked to TK still though.

Another pairing tip: Characters that are couples get a small damage bonus (8% to 16%) when paired together and people from the same team (SRX team, ATX team, Aggressors, etc.) get a hit/dodge bonus instead (10% to 20%). The bonuses aren't worth pairing a sniper with a melee unit but this is good to keep in mind for pilot switching shenanigans. There is also a spirit command that lets both pilots in the same pair copy each other's better stats for the whole mission, it is amazing.

Notably, Excellen has this command, and it lets Kyosuke not be poo poo with ranged weapons

Is there a list of relationship bonuses for MD yet? A lot of them are kind of...random. And several huge bonuses are for pairs you would probably never use, like Shine's level 3 (!!!) love bonus with Rai.

Found one.

Basically it says that the unit needs to be adjacent, and the relationship level gets an effective +1 bonus if the units are twinned.

There may be character spoilers (not sure what Masaki and Lune are doing in there).

EDIT: Shine's crush on Rai is actually pretty good, because last I checked, OG let subpilots count for relationship bonuses. All you have to do is put Shine next to the SRX for a nice little damage boost.

No, no, Shine loves Rai and not the other way around. The Fairlion gets a boost from being next to the SRX.
