Re: The Official Gundam Thunderbolt Mecha Thread Mk I

Why rain on the guy's parade? If that is what the guy is looking forward to seeing in Thunderbolt, that's his business. The Thunderbolt manga does a good job taking mundane designs like the Columbus class and making them look visually interesting, and if that translates to animation then that is wor...

Re: Female Final Boss

GLADoS from Portal

The Boss from Metal Gear Solid 3

Technically Peace Walker from MGS Peace Walker since it is an AI based on The Boss's data, though Paz more likely qualifies

Zhao Yun Ru from Deus Ex Human Revolution

Re: Mobile Suit Gundam Watching Guide by ANN.

Being an elitist gatekeeper was never my intention, so I will apologize for giving that impression I have no more love for that type of fan than you do. I was speaking out of emotion rather than reason otherwise I would have been more diplomatic, that's what I get for posting first thing on the morn...

Re: Mobile Suit Gundam Watching Guide by ANN.

A prime example of why I try to stay away from ANN. Thank you Deacon Blues for pointing out in the comments the main reason to dismiss the whole article. If the writer doesn't even know what F91 was about how can they recommend what Gundam series to watch? What other facts about the series mentione...

Re: Mobile Suit Gundam Watching Guide by ANN.

ANN? Into the trash it goes. Personally, I'd ignore that list altogether and just watch this guy's videos, https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCht6ZW ... LCXmZK9Rpg he knows what's up.

Re: The Forum Time Date Policy

Not speaking as a member of the moderation staff but generally, on most discussion forums if a thread is inactive for a month or more then it's considered dead. Some people don't mind discussing an old topic so long as it was interesting to begin with, however bringing back old discussions no one is...

Re: UV applications and future weaponry

Radiation cannot cause an explosion, it is released as a byproduct of another high energy material such as nuclear fuel. Solar radiation is mostly heat and visible light, which doesn't impart enough energy itself to destroy a target and generally considered wasted energy in an explosion, which is wh...

Re: Mars Rays- erred, mistranslated, or yet to be explanied?

You could keep things simple by saying Mars Rays is just ionizing radiation bombarding the surface and the initial settlement lacked adequate shielding to protect the colonists, perhaps due to cutting corners on the project. Diseases caused by Mars Rays are as a result of cellular damage due to long...

Re: Discrepancies in Gundam political and military formation

The Vist Foundation functions as a privately funded foundation run by a single family therefore operates under a different set of rules than a non-profit group. Most of their funding come from trading artwork between Earth and its space colonies as well as being a large shareholder in Anaheim Electr...

Re: General Fanfiction Discussion 2: Electric Boogaloo

What's wrong with Zeon being named after the guy who founded the state in the first place? There has been a precedent for naming states and governmental systems even while said persons were still alive, and why not if they put in the work to build a nation state they should have every right to name ...

Re: Personal Reviews on these sites? (Trustworthy Sites)

Gundamplanet is pretty reliable, the prices are reasonable and the selection is decent, they do carry P-Bandai stuff but expect to pay through the nose and once their stock is gone, that's it. They use to have free shipping for orders over $95 within the US, but now it is only for select areas of th...

Re: Ep. 153 - The World is Not Square

It's not just Cartoon Network that was removed from Dish, but all Turner Network programing including CNN due to a failure to come to terms on contract negotiations, so the channels will return eventually.

Re: Ep. 080: The Films of Kevin Smith

Well, I have seen Phantoms, and Ben Affleck is the bomb in it which is saying something since it also starred Peter O'Toole. The film is otherwise a mediocre sci fi film adaptation of a Dean Koontz novel that wishes it was a mediocre adaptation of a Stephen King novel as directed by John Carpenter.

Re: Ep. 052: TRON

I grew up watching Tron on VHS, I watched it enough times that I practically memorized every line. Tron Legacy felt like more of the same, but with better visuals the story could have done more to reflect modern information technology and how it relates to The Grid, but hey movies still think you us...

Re: lack of discipline in the gundam series

Filling the reports seemed to be a bureaucratic formality, they know that during practice stuff gets broken and all that, they just need to document the incident as a matter of record. Even Kamille complained about how pointless the official apology portion of the document was since the whole thing ...
