So /tg/, would you play in a game where you were grunt Mobile Suit pilots fighting in an existing or modified gundam setting?

Pic related, it's a motherfucking Leo.

I assume that since PC's are piloting the things they'll be pretty fucking tough. In that series it wasn't really the machine that mattered, it was who was in the cockpit.

>> No.20736598

It's true. Heero piloted a Leo for, like, two episodes.

At least, I think I remember that. My memories of Wing were a blurr of needless political coups.

I was actually trying to write an 08th MS Team game. The MS on each side are evenly matched enough to make things fair, and they usually stay on the ground, too.

My other idea was for a 1 on 1 Gundam battle game based on G Gundam. You know, the exact opposite of having grunts vs grunts: super special snowflakes for EVERYONE!

pic related, it's the grunt mobile suit of the best faction in the best setting.

>> No.20737417

This sounds fucking sweet. It's basically the same thing as playing a stormtrooper in Star Wars, or a rank and file soldier in D&D.

Sure you can fight, and you might survive, but the enemy is as tough as you are, and you know that at any moment, a gundam might show up and kill you all.

>> No.20737512

I'd be for it.

Actually, I'd like to take a shot at playing what the OP in this thread ( http://archive.foolz.us/tg/thread/19100726/ ) was going for, only hopefully less... murdery.

Eventually in the clusterfuck that is post-Endless Waltz, apparently the Leo's technology is revamped until its Leo III variant.
Which is essentially a Tallgeese.

NOPE, ITS A LEO III

Series is good as hell and the sequels are still good. I'd consider the original series a classic since it's more grimdark and realistic then Gundam. Namely, laser, plasma, and beam weaponry is rare as fuck and only found on the largest of ships, life sucks in the Votoms universe, and everyone is out to kill you.

I do love me some AU Grunts. Wing and 00 both had some great grunts. Everyone loves Wing's Leo, Taurus, and Aries.

I really like 00's Tierien, Flag, and GN-X. The Tierien really looks like something the Russians would come up with, sturdy, utilitarian, and easy to maintain. The Flag looks like something the Americans would make, sleek, fast, and overly complicated (in this case it transforms). The GN-X with its four eyes and the long thruster bits is really unique.
