So what universe does Geed take place in exactly? It's implied to be the classic M78 Showa Universe but a wiki has it listed in a different universe entirely. So which is it?

For that matter, is there a concrete guide to the Ultraman multiverse?

>Seriously, why aren't there good Iron Man vidya?

The guy is one of the most anime motherfuckers in all of the western world despite what people want to believe, he's a guy that basically builds his own power armours that as time goes on take on more and more a slicker, more japanese and Metal Heroes-ish style, heck even adapting some of other famous japanese power armour design ques, like Samus' Varia Suit. And he even builds his own "Buster" suits in comics that are either Power Ranger styled Battlizer or a Megazord if the situation needs it.

So I ask this : why oh why, is it so darn difficult to make a good Iron Man game? Especially when the japanese already have multiple playstyles ready for the guy. You could pick from FROMSOFT's Armored Core titles to be adapt Iron Man or Artdink's Macross Ultimate Frontier specifically to make something with the character or even if all those fail, why not give it to the Lost Planet - EX Troopers team at Capcom to make a game fitting the character?


Because there are no good western games period?

If some jap studio was licensed to make ironman game then maybe, but it's mahvel's call, and mahvel is retarded SJW company that will never do anything sensible ever.

>Devil Man

The hell? I get that he was created by Go Nagai but I was under the impression that he's not a robot, or even giant sized for that matter.



I think the anime version has him go giant sized Ultraman style for the fights.



Well…there was that crossover with Getter…and that other crossover with Mazinger..multiple times. Still pissed that the one manga where Devilman was forced to work under Hades to get his girlfriend back had him basically destroy Great Mazinger..

About 45 kits, most of the collection pictured above. Most of them are just snap built with some panel lining.


File: 9057f636b715b3d⋯.jpg (39.4 KB, 458x458, 1:1, blue-stuff-mold-8-bars.jpg)

So I've been wondering. Is there a way to mold clear pieces like you do with regular pieces using bluestuff? My problem is that almost all kits have this colored visor sith them and rarely do they have a uncolored see through visor. I don't like having to paint my visors another color.

An example is the Jegan, if I want to scratch build the ECOAS version while keeping the transparent visor transparent, it would look way off. It pisses me off so much.



I dont see why you couldn't use clear resin to make the piece.



Clear resin using bluestuff? Wont that spill everywhere?



Use a piece of runner to make a pour channel. You can use oyumaru to do pour molds, its watertight.

I can't quite put my finger on it, but I agree.

I tried all of them, and only found FM3 to be fun to play through.

I dunno what is it - music? Story? Characters? Other games just aren't fun compared to the 3rd one.



The splitting paths, maybe? And for me…I like it because aside from Death Machine Ryogo (Zoom1 and ROFUp1 all day, everyday), I also like reading all the stuff on the in-game internet.

Gotta wait for the BD release, huh.

It was a fun movie.


It's a fun movie…shame that it only like follows the 70's anime up to Great Mazinger only. Grendizer just flat out ignored as are the other 70's Dynamic Pro mechas.

I know that there is a SNES gundam fighting game, though I can't say much regarding gameplay quality. Not my genre, and I don't know what makes a "quality" fighting game.

Beyond that, I enjoyed the spritework and music, one particular track was really good..



it's pretty good for a fighting game of that era



yeah Endless Duel (the Wing one) is pretty good, especially handicapping for "licensed Super Famicom fighter"

the G Gundam SFC one isn't so hot, even handicapping for licensed fighter

Tech Romancer is really good.


Well, there was Super Robot Spirits for the N64. You got the R-1, Daitarn 3, Dunbine, Dancouga, God Gundam, Master Gundam, Walker Gallia, Voltes V and the Juddeca as the final boss.

It was whole lot of nothing really.

Hathaways Flash movies which we already knew about

Gundam Live Action again we already knew about.

Movie adaptation of G Reco which seems like a bad idea if you ask me, take an already incomprehensible series and speed it up.

Some kind of Beyond project for Zeta and Wing, not sure what those were about.

New SD Gundam series and games in the works.

New Build Fighters series coming as well.

They are going to re build the 1/1 RX-78-2 and have it have some form of movement this time.

I didn't like it. I cant really place what about it I didn't like though. Maybe I'm just getting too old for bandai's toy commercials. Dropped it after about half the first season.

The grunt designs are fantastic, the whole graze series is very nice. Main suit is boring and edgy, and the whole demon naming thing is chuuni af.

The HG line is amazing though. Even if the source material is trash I'm happy it exists just for that.



They should have given carta a happy end too. To hell with Super gayboy and his issues.



>Do you think it's bad?

Right - Graze

Wrong - everything else

Thanks for exposing your ADHD, fag.

>All in all IBO is the best realization of "children of war" concept in gundam franchise so far.

Apart for cheap melodrama, no.

>It's far less idealistic and abstract than Zeta with its magic newhalf shenanigans and black and white characters.

Because gay joker and his pig pirate captain in Season 1 were so grey, right? '

I think you became so numb as the show didn't stop hammering Jellyhorn = bad muh orphan private military family = good, your adhd just got worse.

>Not only that but it also doesn't fuck around with teenagers' sexuality aspect, and delivers it honest and upfront.

Because Atra's thirst Mika's cum wasn't a joke already. And that fag whose lover was kept alive just to be offed for a cheap melodramtic death.

>Something that Zeta does not.

Actually watch Zeta instead of skimming thorough Wike pages.

>I think IBO is the best Gundam entry ever from both narrative and characterization stand points.

Reserve an appointment with emergency ward cuz you are numb and suffering from ADHD.

File: f16983717f12e83⋯.jpg (34 KB, 360x360, 1:1, 41937.jpg)


Seriously, why? Was it due to the Arcade machines costing so much? Was it due to the battle system? The 3DS game's an OK RPG by SE standards and the animu was good…the mecha's were pretty rad. Is it because they opted for Super versions of the mechas instead of gattais and not using Eurobeat?

At least now SE knows how to do arcade mechas with Starwing Paradox, so hopefully we get a continuation of this. Would be ultra cool to see some more of this franchise.

I must say, that Eureka Seven was a fantastic show! The world-building is top notch with a definite focus on "show, don't tell." The main characters punk/hip hop vibe contrasting against a militaristic society work incredibly well. Despite being a "love conquers all" story, it really hits the themes of a coming of age story hard and precise. I'm not sure why everyone feels so blasé about it, it certainly deserves a top spot.

No, an opinion that is clearly put forth just to stir a pot is bait.



I agree, but my post was not like that.

If anything, I wanted someone explain to me why I could be wrong and what is actually good about the show.



One of the strongest aspects of the show is his growth. He is supposed to be an irritating kid. The world shape him and help him become more mature.



I'm not sure what you mean by the Naruto content. The mecha were secondary and were not used much so that special modes and attacks didn't have time to wear the audience out. Naruto did not have an endpoint it was gunning for, whereas this felt from about episode 5 like it had a definite end point it was going for. It had a very positive feeling about it even at its darkest times.



>I'm not sure what you mean by the Naruto content

It's about the main character. A simply bland and uninteresting butt-monkey. Renton's even worse, though. He is annoying and not enjoyable to watch at all. Maybe that is the point and I don't understand something? Though it's not like you can't make an annoying AND interesting character. He barely felt like a character, it's like whenever he has done something significant it was because the plot demanded so, and not because doing so could be a part of his actual character.

>The mecha were secondary and were not used much so that special modes and attacks didn't have time to wear the audience out.

Instead the show worn me out with poorly written interactions and meaningless episodes that don't even expand the lore or the characters properly.

>It had a very positive feeling about it even at its darkest times.

It would be good if these weren't feeling so forced.
