okay okay

what if we strap more rockets onto the mech
but all of those rockets have a warhead on them too
>>

The Armored Core V op got me so hyped and then the game was shit.

Implying that a universe that has mechs hasn't developed a more efficient thrust system.

>>259611896

Because it's hard to design a map when people are blowing is up. You can't funnel people in certain directions or give them a break to load the map.

The mech can almost fly that fast without the boosters. They're just added on for extended rapid deployment so the mech doesn't have to stop and recharge its engines every half a minute.

The AC4 universe's tech levels are ridiculous.

Biggest disappointment to me was the removal of back weaponry.
Having only hand weapons really took out a lot of the variety in the game. The fact that shoulder missiles had very little ammo and was easy as fuck to resist also didnt help save its case.
>>
>>259613059
And dont get me started with the fucking over weapons.
Crappy screen bullshit, inability to be purged and one use only made it the stupidest weapon to date.
>>
>>259609626
Unit-01 could use REX as a football.
>>
>>259612482
It was aight, better than 4 and 4A. I missed the parts for weight distribution tuning but that was about it.
>>
>>259612436
More rockets just make it go faster, not further.
>>
Who the fuck designed this? A woman?

It is so unefficient and stupid it hurts. Toxic volatile expensive heavy rocket fuel just to fly few machine guns 20 metres over the ground? We have copters for 60 years now doing same shit on gasoline.
>>
>>259613059

If it was on PC, the online only part could have made it worth it, and mods would have probably saved it as well. It was console only and the game is dead now
>>
>>259613339

That's because the Eva's range between 40-200 meters tall, depending on the animation.
>>
>>259613383
It would have played a helluva lot differently on PC.

I suspect a massive amount of bitching to come from turning speeds being based on the leg part rather than on mouse sensitivity.

On the other hand, manual aim weaponry like sniper cannons and rockets would probably be super dominant if they ever made a pc port.

Did the Ace Combat Horizons port handle better than the PS3 version?

I've never gotten into Macross. Where do I start?

I watched the one with the pop-star though
>>
>>259615418
I'm pretty much in your shoes. Been semi-marathoning Macross Frontier recently, taking it in as another random yearly mecha series. Been thinking of picking up the original TV series and filling in the gaps
>>
>>259615418

Everything, starting from Production Order.

DYRL has the best animation of all time, but the plot is pretty weird and different than the show, so watch the show first.

Macross II has a ton of issues and is technically non-cannon.

Other than that, you're good to go.
>>
>>259615418
>I watched the one with the pop-star though
That describes pretty much every Macross that I know of.

>>259615998

Macross Frontier is basically built around homages to the original show, so it will be fun to gob back to the original.

Giant robots are the shit, I've loved them since I was very small.

But Armored Core has never done anything for me. The controls never felt good to me, and the robots never looked cool to me. I'm not sure why I feel this way, I'm not saying the game is shit or anything, because I haven't played one that held my interest long enough.

I just want a really good/cool giant robot game where I feel like a giant robot.

Preferably one where I defend the city from monsters. Is that so much to ask?

Where is Big o in this? Also what do you mean depending on the animation they've always been the exact same size.

Heard great things about it. Fast gameplay, lots of loadouts, space maps.

Sometimes, it's bigger than a building, other times it is not. Lazy animation. Evangelion was made on a shoestring budget.
>>
>>259618714
Yeah this is true, I remember meeting some people from gainex at a convention and they told me that it all started going to shit near the end of the series run. No communication between Nips and Merica and other bullshit.
didn't help that the show was popular, the death threats and shit really got to the creator and his team 185
>>
>>259619536

Oh, that's fucking awesome.

Did they say anything about Anno going all grimdark in End of Evangelion?

Depression, he was under a lot of preassure and he honestly didn't want to do those movies because of how he felt the fans had treated him.
>>259620848
Original Series then Death and Rebirth from there comes End of Eva then if you want feel free to start 1.11 and move up from there.
Honestly I think the Original is the best and i feel that the new remake is way to cliche
>>
>>259620848
eva, directors 21-24, end of eva, take a break

rebuilds
>>
>>259621121

Well, he can skip Death and Rebirth.
Original series + EoE for starters.
>>
>>259621668
I really liked Death and Rebirth even if you watched the series i really liked the way the smashed everything together and layed it out in front of you.
>>
Also, Gunbuster, because why the fuck not. That shit is rad and is basically proto Eva/GL.
>>
>>259620848

Series, read about the making, EoE, read about the making. Then watch Rebuild if you want eye candy but ignore story.
>>
>>259622201
3.33's ending was nice and all but it wasn't worth all the wait from 1.11 and 2.22
>>
>>259616941
Armored core is more the military otaku style mecha versus the hot blooded mecha style, so maybe that's why.
>>
>see mech thread on /v/
>yes, finally
>becomes an evangelion discussion

god dammit
>>
>>259623694

Its just one guy asking what order he should watch it in.
>>
>>259609626
well that was enjoyable, thanks op. Now off to video games.
>>
>>259620848
Neon Genesis Evangelion
The End of Evangelion
Rebuild movies

In that order (release)
>>
>>259621932

Gunbuster is the top. It has great plot.

Evangelion is a good show, the fanbase is cancerous. Like another entry level mecha series.

And old school Gainax is really sadly neglected compared to FLCL and Eva.
>>
>>259628557
hey i watched this movie for the first time recently

it was bretty good but i was expecting something completely different based on the descriptions of it
>>
>>259628117

Sure
fucking
has
>>
Watched all of Knights of Sidonia during finals week of college
That shit was awesome and hit all sorts of spots I had. That deep space shit, images coming in blurry due to huge distances, lancers, neat stuff and XCOM shit. How was it regarded by people that aren't dumb like me?
>>
>>259630268

Didnt watch past the first episode, really didnt dig the cg.
Atmosphere and settings really cool tho, maybe ill read the manga.
>>
>>259631068
I thought I'd hate the CG too but it grew on me
>>
>>259612862
nobody gives a shit about that

the devs fucked up - hard - with armageddon

they went from something unique to a soulless shooter that barely utilized its destruction elements at all
>>
>>259630268
Read the manga, the best stuff is yet to come. Manga Gauna also look way scarier.
>>
>>259630268
I skipped Attack on Titan because it seemed faggy but apparently this is AoT in space - and apparently also the main inspiration for AoT, if I'm to believe what I that one time

so yeah

it wasn't particularly bad and the short season kept it from overstaying its welcome. Only the first ep was a chore to watch until my eyes adjusted to its style. The space battle in ep2 hooked me in until its end
>>
>>259630268

Manga is better but the show is good,too. Bio mega and Blame are great reads as well.
>>
>>259629553

COACHUUUUUUI!
>>
>>259632029
>>259633650
Yeah I've seen the manga, considering reading it and waiting for season 2.
>>
>>259620352
He was trying to ruin the series and the characters as a cheeky response to all the death threats he got, the joke was on him though because they just loved it even more. He fucking hates evangelion post-original series, but nobody will ever pay him to do anything else.
>>
Is Zone Of The Enders good?
I've never played a mech game before in my life and just received a $10 reward today from best buy and was thinking about picking up the HD Collection right now after work.
I've been meaning to get into the mech games and flying games like Ace Combat lately, would those be a good start?
>>
>>259634986
It would be a nice start, yes.

ZoE is great. Just keep in mind that the first game is pretty bad compared to the second one, but in order to appreciate the second one you have to complete the first. You only need to play through it once though, then you can just run through 2 over and over again.
>>
>>259611693
I supported it years ago but it's probably going to end up being vapourware
>>
>>259635436
>vapourware
It's already on steam and has a playable early access build I think. I'm not sure how far development is, I stopped keeping up with it since I can't run the game on my toaster.
>>
>>259635307
>>259635385
Thanks guys, I appreciate it. And don't worry I always play and finish every series in release order.
