We'll more or less have Battletech in once Dougram finally gets the mainline call-up.

That demo gives some insight to how animations might be this game, there's a couple attacks that have odd jump cuts (V-Dash's shoulder cannons for example) which could take some getting used to if it's common.
And then there's things like this:

There are a fair few characters who would argue that Spiral Power isn't that much less evil than Getter Rays.

Getter is one of the inspirations, yeah. But Getter Rays generally aren't evil, per se. (Unless you're reading Getter Robo Darkness, in which case, well, that kind of fuckup is on you, buddy.) They're just... the Getter. Sometimes appearing good (like in the end of Go), sometimes terrifying and monstrous (like with the destruction of the Saotome labs in Shin). And even the characters seem unsure about where they come down on this whole Getter issue.

Similarly, spiral power isn't good or evil, but left unchecked it could destroy the universe. It's like assigning a moral value to fire.

Yes!
I finally understand everything there is to know about axes!


Personally I never thought that Spiral Power ever seemed to have any kind of will or agency. It was an emergent property of life and while if unchecked and unmanaged would cause the world to end it never had the ability to make that happen itself. Getter Rays on the other hand seem to have some kind of will or agenda in many of the Getter media that I have seen which makes the catastrophic potential of it feel more sinister to me. Getter actively seems to want things to happen, and those desires often seem to be existentially horrifying or antagonistic to living a peaceful human life. Or non-human life given that Getter has a lot of non-human sapient peoples.

Also the fact that Getter seems to have chosen humanity, or prefers it over other races makes it inherently hosed up.

Spiral Energy feels like something inherent to humans with strong wills (or living creatures, i should say, given viral and bonta) while Getter Rays seem entirely separate from humanity.

Yeah, that's straight from the manga.

Seeing a preview of that future made Ryoma swear off piloting the Getter for years, only returning when human extinction was on the line.

I'm really curious how the anime's going to end this plot this month, because the manga never did. Ended on a cliffhanger.

Then definitely don't play the games back from the classic and alpha series (and surrounding standalone games). They licensed the SD Gundam series, rather than the actual series (I believe because it's cheaper), and the SD Gundams all had pupils.

When the Mazin Emperor was revealed to be a combination of Photon Energy and Getter Rays the eyes on the thing made a whole lot more sense.

They should bring back the SD Gundams next game. I wanna play with the Pirate crew from the latest SD Gundam series.

The only time SD Gundams are acceptable are with other Gundams for contrast.

Preferably season 1 of 00, but that may just be because I want season 1 of 00 back.

Nu HWS has been in a zillion games by now so it's probably a safe bet.
