Technically, it’s a Super Robot Game, but MY SUPER ROBOTS DIE T_T

As you all know, Super Robot Wars Original Generation has been released in English.

But just what is a super robot? Well, it’s actually a huge robot that defeats its enemies by humiliation via flaming breas- Wait, that description applies to Maizinger Z. Whoops. My bad.

Okay, again… … …

A super robot is actually any mecha that is able to defeat a large number of enemies with or without sustaining fatal damage and being able to survive said fatal damage. Oh, and they’re very costly to repair. And no, A Gundam is not a super robot by virtue of them being able to asplode. Super robots don’t asplode, unless you suck at piloting one of them. And as you all know, even the suckiest of mecha pilots can pilot a Gundam. We’re still considering if the ARX-7 Arbalest can be considered a Super Robot.

And why am I raving about super robots, even though I express only the slightest of interests in most mecha series? Well, I have gotten my hands on a copy of Super Robot Wars Original Generation. Doi.

But what is the Super Robot Wars series all about? Well, as far as I can tell, it’s about super robots fighting other super robots. Connected by a story straight out of a soap opera. OK, so the story is better than a soap. And from what I’ve sampled (not knowing enough Japanese to understand SRW J and being a cheapass), it seems to be well-written.

However, SRW OG is not about your Maizinger Zs and Ideons and Getta Robos, it’s about slightly extraordinary people piloting super robots, mass-production models and their brothers and sisters to fight off a human war first, then some dirty aliens. I think them aliens were bored. Oh, and there are some rather sleazy characters, not to mention a character who can’t tell the difference between a game and real life. I think you all get the message here.

Oh, and you get to play two sides of the story,one from the view of a civvie-turned-pilot, and another from a hardened vet. OH well, who cares about them anyway. The game is filled with hawt ladies. No I’m not kidding, and I wish I were. And if you don’t agree that Zengar Zomvolt is the coolest mecha pilot in the series, I’ll grab a Gespent MKII and beat you in the head over and over until you agree.

The game itself starts off relatively easy, and becomes progressively harder, but with your pilots’ mad skils and your brilliant tactical manuevers, I believe you can take on the Alien menance. And handle a war. Protip: The Cybuster is very fragile. And your super robots can die. Very Slowly.

So much for telling you lot about the game. Go play it yourself and see what I mean. (And yes, there was an SRW OG OVA made. So technically, it can be classified as anime, too.)

    Sadlly, Drm… Super Robots tend to take some rather horrible beatings in their own series compared to their RR counterparts.

    *goes to Gespenst Kick some aliens to the music of Let’s Go ! Rider Kick !*

    Harry. It’s MAZINGER. And for that little yet oh so important mistake, you should go die.

    And one more thing, UC Gundams have been a staple of SRW games until J.

    If 1 single misspelling means my death, then it proves one thing: You need help. A lot of help.
