  1. Oh lord, I have performed a thread necro, but for maybe a good reason. I've begun playing this again a bit in my spare time, and so I'm making a full playthrough video of the game as I go through it. Probably a very boring playthrough, but for those who simply want the story bits, I suppose it fits the mark. Currently, only the first mission and the briefing for the second are up, but the rest will follow in good time. As for why the second mission gameplay isn't up yet... No idea. Having some complications uploading right now, so I'll try again later.

  2. I agree about the polygons but we should remember that this IS a TV series as opposed to a movie or OVA. I know that doesn't help but it may be the reason for the lackluster CGI. :( WE WANT BETTER!!!!!!


    All things considered, Frontier's CGI isn't all that bad. I mean, it could be worse. Look at the SRWOG: Divine Wars anime. The CGI on that doesn't even look half as good as Zoids, IMO.

  3. I would think Grade and then Score would be it. I mean, I haven't played the game for a while(2 years about), but doesn't your grade go down in cases where the objective is to defend the Macross (or some other thing) but you let it take obscene amounts of damage? Personally, I find the best way to get S-ranks on a lot of the stages is simply to kill everything that moves before it can get anywhere near the objective, if its a "Defend X" mission. Otherwise, try not to get hit and pretty much rush everything that moves like there's no tomorrow.

  4. The bio-neural chip used in the Ghost X-9's AI systems is banned, thus the use of it made the development of the Ghost X-9 illegal in turn. Also, in Isamu's case, he has more or less two witnesses, Yang and Myung, the former of which found out that Sharon was controlling the rogue Ghost X-9 prior to mind control and the latter aware that Sharon was mind-controlling people. Also, investigation on Sharon would have given them enough leverage to see that something went down, since they have testimony from three people as well as material evidence from both the Ghost X-9 and Sharon's remains.

    Also, Millard probably wouldn't even know what Sharon was going to do, as he has little information pointing to it. He knew one thing though, that Isamu was going to destroy the Ghost X-9. When he said he'd cover him, its because he understands what Isamu's going through, because at one point, he was in Isamu's shoes too. That he probably didn't like the idea of the Ghost X-9 might also help that too.

  5. Everything feels easier on the easier settings. >_> But the ships are easy regardless of the attacks. Just camp just outside of their range and mow away with your gunpod~

    edit: The FA-11's XS-06 Heavy Gunpod does WONDERS.

  6. The ships were easy. Armored Valkyrie and Armored Thunderbolt are easily the most broken units in the game. If its not the rapid-fire reloading missiles, it is the nuke, in the Armored Thunderbolt's case, though the gunpod is insanely strong as well. The enemy in Singing in the Rain was NOT fun this last playthrough. Especially since the Koenig Monster is the least maneuverable thing in the game... =_= And then I discovered you could shoot through buildings with the Koenig Monster's Railgun if you hugged the building in front of you. Victoly~ XD

  7. Torii I have a strange request if you can. Though I have the game and played and beat it believe it or not I have never seen the ending after the in game scene showing the fleet firing on Macross 13 after your VF attacks it and the fight with your wingman is over. Though I have read what the ending shows and have a save completed file thanks to a friend who no longer has the game. My game locks up there everytime after that ingame scene even though it has no scratches on the disc and its in mint condition. I think it is due to the method I use to play it is a psXchange 2 disc swap. Could you possibly record the ending in a video?

    And to Mr March I like both the pics and the synopsis. Thanks for your efforts for the community.

    To tell you the truth, that's pretty close to my situation as well. Never seen the ending since it locks up right after Aegis returns to the ship. XD

    edit: I've uploaded the first part to my FTP, and here's the second section as well, up to the mission Singing in the Rain.

    Part 1

    Part 2

  8. Here's what I could get from the first level on a second playthrough. The Armored Battroid, Armored Thunderbolt, and Koenig Monster are only available on certain stages, so they'll be put in when I can get to those stages. I'll try and screencap the stuff Sorata did with his camera later.

    So in short, what this has:

    - At least 9 pictures for each VF (selection screen + gameplay)

    - Prologue pictures

    - VFX-2 OP and Macross 13 Cinematic
