    Do any of the Gundam shows hold up for adults? I've been playing Dynasty Warriors Gundam and I'm kind of interested in watching some of the earlier series from the 70s and 80s.

    I think so yes. Gundam 0080 and 0083 were both really solid. Char's Counterattack was pretty awesome as well.

    I missed Char's Counterattack when I was a kid, that's one of the ones I'm thinking about checking out.

    I hope you like filler.

    I think most iterations of Gundam have a similar overarching plot with different characters/details/set in different worlds each with giant robots. I didn't think any of them were really long enough to have filler.

    Yeah. A decent number of them are movies, too. The ones I'm familiar with are a few dozen episodes each, enough for some filler, but it's nothing like Naruto.

    I may also not notice it because I have an innate liking for filler since it was the only good part of Evangelion.

    I just can't believe Gainax is still milking that cow after all these years.

    Evangelion wasn't nearly as good as people told me it was

    The fights and animation and montages of "nation cooperative effort" were great. The plot was crazy religion salad, the dialogue was stupid, and there was a weird fetish for 14 year old girls

    I think the one with wings you're referring to is Wing Zero from Endless Waltz?

    http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_m3gwz3j5WT1qd2mgto1_500.jpg

    It was apparantly "modified" in between the series and the movie for whatever angst-filled reason.

    The old Super Robot Wars games were great as well. Bonus for Tranzor Z + Gundam team ups. I hate that I don't have a modern system to play them any more. I think all the recent SRWs are on portables now :(

    I'm cleaning this place the fuck up. Bathroom mirror and shelf clean and orderly. Chipping away at Mt. Laundry.

    Now attacking the stove top. Then, the rest of the kitchen area. Then tidy up tables. And then I'm well on my way.

    Gonna get this place presentable.

    To be honest, I don't like DWG as much as the other Dynasty Warriors games. It felt incomplete, closer to Dynasty Warriors 2 than Dynasty Warriors 3 and 4 or Samurai Warriors 1 (the best games of the series).

    The storyline in Original Mode is hilarious because of how nonsensical it is.

    I don't actually have the guts to post in AC... My art is just, in no way, up to snuff.

    You're a guy who's got the right attitude. The AC guys are fantastic at criticism. Which is anathema to people coming from places where everything will get positive feedback but is fantastic for actually bettering oneself.

    There's one guy who's basically gone from 7th grade crayons to being comissioned to decorate airports and such with his super cool art.

    @Evil Multifarious on my second run through of dishonored, standing in front of the vice that has a bone charm in it, saving and reloading until I get a bone charm I like

    thinking of you

    :lol:

    while this is hilarious, I think it isn't too bad because you aren't really undermining the weight of your own decisions. plus some of those bone charms are hella useless and I don't blame you for wanting a good one.

    I only did it because the first three charms I found were utterly useless and I was pretty pissed by that. The one in the vice is the only charm that is "set" when you pick it up, the rest are all determined as soon as the level loads, so this was really the one chance to ensure that my run of bad luck didn't stretch into a game-spanning annoyance.

    And it possibly would have, the first dozen or so saves and reloads I was getting shit like "your crossbow bolts have a slightly increased chance of being recoverable" and "eating food heals slightly more health".

    Because yeah, that's totally on par with the stuff like "swing your sword faster" "choke people out faster" and "move at normal speed with a drawn weapon" mmm hmm.

    Man, everyone hates Gundam Wing, but it had far and away the best mech designs.

    Even the throwaway bad guys looked great.

    In particular I remember one pair of bad guy mechs - one with a powerful gun, one with a shield, and they'd work as a pair and be nearly unstoppable. That is such a cool concept.

    But the characters are aaaaaAAAAAA

    Oh brilliant

    Disagree. I like Zeta's suits way more. And the story isn't bad, but the last five episodes came about 30 episodes too late.

    As far as undermining the decisions I make, I never re-load for stuff like that, that's cheating myself out of the value of repeated playthroughs. But if I'm going for 100% undetected and I get detected, I'm not going to punish myself by restarting the game, or even the level, from scratch. That would decrease my enjoyment of the game, not increase it.

    Also, since I'm going for a ghost playthrough this time (100% undetected through the whole game) I occasionally have to save my game, throw an unconscious body in front of a patrol, and follow it with a grenade, before reloading.

    It relives stress.

    I thought it peaked on ps1, project phantasma was great IMO, really the best developed one before they started going to crazy with the designs and mechanics.

    I've seen a couple of his Q & A's from cons that he does. It is really frickin' funny. He's started branching out a bit more too. He had a cameo in Supernatural and he guest starred on an ep of the new Primeval sseries. Hard to believe he's done so much VA work though. Especially when you see what he did on Beast Wars.

    i really want to like the gundam series, because at its heart it's space opera with a rich vein of consistent science fiction underpinning all the tech, with both sides of the conflict usually being pretty morally suspect. and the mech designs can be pretty fly.

    those are some great ingredients to make a series from. it's just...really too bad none of them are ever really executed on well. I think War in the Pocket is probably the one most beyond reproach, but 08th MS Team is pretty fun.

    Armored Core 2 and AC2: Another Age were also pretty great. You had good variety of parts. My favorite was when I built a mech that locked onto another mech in like 1/2 a second and then fired at missles at it.
