Welcome back to the Victory Ship! Power up the exothermic reactors and charge the proton cannons, it’s giant robot time! Nate and Fred kick things off discussing Titanfall, which just had a sequel announced, and what they’d like to see in it. Discussion includes Transformers, Battlefield 2142, Armored Core, and plenty of others. Nate then describes his want for a real time strategy game focused on giant robots with combining effects. Power Rangers of course get discussed, as well as the integrity of the Red Ranger and some serious talk on the priority of gender, including some spot research.
Beyond this, we discuss the need for new video games to be made based off giant robot properties such as Pacific Rim – but to be good. Nate has an apparent need for the inclusion of synchronized moves and call out their attacks. Fred wants a new Robot Alchemic Drive game, or at least something that takes place in a second person perspective where the player needs to control their robot through their character’s eyes.
Do you have a favorite kind of giant robot? Let us know what it’s like on our facebook page! Have an idea for discussion? Share it, and we’d love to talk about it on the show!
