Ah good, another one to add to the modest list. Thanks, Poseidal!

Man, SRW does seem to be a haven for paired pistols, doesn't it?

Woof woof! Probably because if you have dual handguns, you limit yourself in combat. Sure, you get twice the amout of shots off, but who said those shots would be accurate? Also, you can't block with a shield-- that left hand is holding a blaster. You can't engage close range, you don't have an arm ...

Yeah, I know what you mean... but Im not counting dual rifles or bazookas or shotguns or cannons or whatever. Those don't fill the same niche as John Woo-style paired-pistol action, and besides, there's tons of examples of dual rifles. (Wing Gundam Zero anyone?)

Excellence Cosmo Diver frame. (SRW R) Can't remember which ones these are. My SRW books are in a box right now... (sob) R-1...

Woof woof! From a "realistic rationale" POV it doesn't require a large, powerful mech to carry a small handgun. (grinds teeth) Didn't I say, just above, that "Im NOT talking about from a 'realistic rationale' POV"...? That sometimes looked strange in gundam. Based on weapons loadout the GM should be...

Mecha with dual handguns... a rarity.

So I was watching Power Rangers SPD this morning. Not great, but not super-scuky either. Anyway, in it the rangers do a fair amount of John Woo-style gunplay. You know, pistols in both hands, firing them at once while leaping sideways through the air, all that. And that got me thinking... Paired-pis...

Thank God they cleaned up the character designs a bit. I have to say, Ive never liked the character designs for SRW... they all look the same, and they also all look a little... I dunno... fake?

Anyway, yeah, the site's lookin' sweet!

Hey...!

G-Gundam was a good show. It just wasn't a good GUNDAM show. Taken on its own, as a kind of "fighting game with mecha," it was pretty darn rockin'. Directed by Yasuhiro Imagawa (GaoGaiGar, Giant Robo) after all...

Actually, I wouldn't worry too much about the "ZZ Effect" for L-Gaim. ZZ was *inappropriately* humorous, and it was also really poorly written -- well, more accurately, poorly plotted. L-Gaim doesn't suffer from these problems. It was a way cool show (and there would have been no Zeta Gundam without...
