  1. Anybody know of a master translation list for the Mecha and Songstress support options? Or an ordered one?
  2. Two more screens. First the Fighter Stats and second the Walkure Stats (anybody know why you have 3 lineup options and how to change them during battle?) Thanks. Fighter stats screen
  3. I'm just wishing for the Armored odder/rarer 1/55's, and joke machines. The Joke machines were suitable for children and had great playability at a reasonable price. I'd love to see every fighter made into a joke machine. Would be nice if they could make the durability of a 1/55 Chunky Monkey into the frontier and delta series fighters.
  4. Found this menu translation http://www.play-asia.com/macross-delta-scramble-menu-translations/5f/748n5?ref=twitter
  5. Anyone figure out how to adjust the y axis for both camera and flight controls?

    Macross 30

    Which DYRL PS1 game was it and how'd you get it (which movie). So want those old games playable on PS3.
  8. The PS4 so far is a huge disappointment. 1. Sorry...I don't want to stream games....here let me pay extra and use up my monthly 200gb of bandwidth through my service provider. I'm already using double what I'm supposed to. 2. Sony doesn't realize that the most boring thing in the world is watching someone else play a game. No I don't want to see your streamed videos of your play. Social aspects be damned. 3. I don't want a slimmed down counsel prone to overheating. Give me big with extra cooling capacity. Would love it if it were the size of my Denon Receivers. 4. No imcluded motion controlled gaming....not that I use it much myself but its great for the kiddies. grrrrr
  9. they definitely did an outstanding job with the character designs. Watched the first 7 episodes last night. Probably will watch another 4-5 tonight. The mecha are different but cool. Kind of remind me of full metal panic mecha or maybe armored core. You can definitely see some macross inflences in the show.
  10. Just started watching Muv-Luv Total eclipse on crunchyroll. Are there any more Muv-Luv anime? The wife and I are liking the series. Porsche made an suv. So do Mercedes, and I want to say Lamborghini has one in development. http://www.smartplanet.com/blog/thinking-tech/lamborghini-suv-supercar-may-be-a-game-changer/11306
  11. Not necessarily saying arcadia should. I'm simply saying that macross needs an infusion and those companies that have chosen to make toys have unfortunately let most people who want the toys behind. I highly doubt that re-releasing Joke machines wouldn't be profitable for bandai or matchbox. Simply because they are a cool toy. If you have an anime that kids will watch it makes it even better since now the social aspect comes in. Back in the 80's in my school (rural Minnesota) almost every boy watched Robotech...and almost all of them wanted to be one of the characters. Its popularity was about equal to transformers in my school. GI Joe probably had it beat simply because there were more toys.
  12. Thankfully I have a frugal Neuroscientist hottie wife who doesn't spend much money on clothes and shoes. Macross 7 was a fair attempt at getting a younger fan base. I didn't mind the story as ADHD as it was. What they would have to look at is what's going to hook kids today: -Young Pilots who are better than adults...empowered kids. -cool music (like frontier) -love interests (kids are into this now believe it or not) -Transformable mecha I imagine a simple show similar to that rescue heroes. Brilliant kid are formed into a team piloting transformable mecha to help save earth from disasters caused by anything from zentradi to natural disasters. Cause the adults are off fighting the bigger battles against protodevlin, zentran fleet....whatever. Another possibility is a program set in a pilot academy for 10 year olds. Their adventures through flight training, maintenance, and massive tournament piloting transformable mecha. Could even do it similar to busou shinki or Angelic Layer where kids have little mini transformable mecha they control and fight in a tournament against kids from all over the world. Winner get their own Fanjet. While shows like this are probably lame to us as adults I could see kids wanting to experience such a thing and collect the small scale toys that would go with them. What we out to do is have a contest to see who in 200 words or less could create the best original macross series pitch. who knows...maybe the his holiness decides to make it or use some of it.
  13. Windmill Gundam....Closes all arguments about G-Gundam true awfulness.
  14. No need to take this in a nasty way. I've said my piece for what it is and don't feel it necessary to argue since the others make valid points as well. Nice discussion guys. Hopefully its food for thought. I think we're all in agreement though that we'd like to see more macross stuff made and new series and games. Its discussions like these that may spark an interest for a certain company to broaden its horizons. Thanks.
  15. Most of us saw robotech when we were under 10. Hell the best most played with toy I had as a kid was probably my Joke machine VF1. That's what I'm talking about a cheap ($6) transformable toy. Yeah it wouldn't be $6 but probably $20-30 but its doable. Is it anime correct hell no...but to be honest I think it was more fun than the 1/55 takatoku I had and I played the hell out of that too. yes there were changes to robotech to make it more kid friendly. But I can't believe that if a creative, action filled story were presented to kids that they wouldn't watch or want the toys. The impact of Gundam AGE is yet to be really seen but take, gundam wing, and that god awful G-gundam. It introduced kids to gundam which revitalized Zeta, 0079 which paved the way for newer shows like 00. To be honest, I've always felt that Yamato has just been content with their niche market and fails to have the vision to put a good effort into a lower priced toy. Which is fine...but as a customer that turns me off which is why i haven't purchased a Yamato in 5 years. Swore them off because they just were a disappointment. Like someone mentioned above...at one point I realized i spent about 7k or so in a year on toys and decided to quit cold turkey. While I still get toys, now since my daughter was born I think about what she might like to Play with when she gets older. Things like figmas. I've also started picking up old joke machines for when I introduce her to Macross.
