"SRW 30 - you know shit's going to get weird ..."
 
   ... but not this weird ...

I mean, on one hand, I was expecting weirdness, having played OG and OG2 before. Glorious bunches of oddity and ham, they were.

But this is my first mainline Super Robot Wars game, and ... well, it's mashing the UC timeline, GaoGaiGar, Code Geass and a bunch of other things into a mess that somehow manages to make sense and make you laugh your ass off more often than not.

Case in point, for UC the timeline is after the Laplace Box incident. And my squad of well meaning mechjock murderhobos currently includes not only Pic Above, but also Amuro and Kamille ...

... yeah, Imma have fun with this one.

That's the norm for SRW. The games often do a better job telling the stories than the original material whether its due to lack of time (Char's Counterattack), bad writing (Cross Ange), or the director went off his meds half way through the production (Evangelion).

Also, dusting off my fanfic writing because of this game, and the catalyst is Literally The Eggiest Thing I Ever Imagined Happening To My OC, during the cusp of Third Impact.

   But not for me, at least not for a while.

Because I looked at the price, and I think I'll wait until they offer a sale on it.

Of COURSE you wernt
expecting it!

   I blew SO much money on this, because I preordered it on PS4, meaning I had to get it off Asian PSN store and needed to buy horribly overpriced cards. Ended up costing me 200 bucks Canadian instead of the 120 it would have been if I could have paid directly. (I bought the SUPER EXTRA SPECIAL version!)

I haven’t played it yet because I want to stream it for my friends, and BandaiNamco has made the decision to block all streaming direct from PS4. So I need a computer to play it through with remote play so I can OBS. Mines been dead for years, leaving me with just my iPad(s), but I have a new laptop coming! SOON!

Soooooooooonnnnnnnnnn

   Desperately want to play it, but it disagrees with my computer and resets on, say, F1. When playing from keyboard. If anyone has any ideas...

   Well, it's ok with old XBox 360 controller. Will try with PS5 one later. Don't like key assignment.

   With mentors like that...

Meanwhile, influence goes both ways

Based on real events in the SRW 30

   I am playing this, very slowly. 74 hours and 46 missions in. Loving it.

My favorite plot moment so far is in little blurbs when you run combat animations. Fuu said something in the ballpark of "I will end nightmares that plagued my childhood with my own two hands"
And then you remember, that in the universe, ten years ago, in Previous Big War, there was previous Dr. Hell Uprising and that wasn't nice for anyone in Japan. And Fuu is 14 years old schoolgirl and mech pilot. Yeah...

Generally, the nods to Previous Big War are very interesting. We know that there was One Year War, Dr. Hell, Dinosaurs, Voltres Aliens, GaoGaiGar and something else mashed together, possibly Zeta too, and Amuro, Getter Team, Mazingers, Voltes, Braves and some other people who I don't remember right now were on Argama, flying around and smashing problems right in the face, and half of the younger cast of your current team was there, grew on their exploits and was inspired.
