    And lo & behold, the age of mech combat has arrived. Can't wait to see who wins.

    Told my friend who isn't into Gundam or mecha about it, and his reaction was "Wow who Challenges Japan at their own game?"

    Speaking of robot fights, has anyone else been watching the latest Battlebots tournament that's been airing on ABC?

    When we can do mecha like these

    from the PC and Table-Top RPG Heavy Gear we can truly challenge the Japanese!!!!

    By the way if anyone out there still owns the Original Heavy Gear 2 Game you might want to try this fix out for running it on Windows - 7. So far (and I have only gotten the training missions redone) it works. Here is the Link; http://forums.heavygear.com/index.ph...g-on-windows-7

    Re: MegaBots Challenges Japanto A Real Life Gundam Fight

    i gotta go with Japan because two people piloting a MS is not a good thing. with tanks you have a commander who is running the show. i dont see one of those two being able to take charge. one of them would have to take command and the other would have to follow orders immediately. these two will come up with a battle plan then it will fall to shit and they will sit there and bitch at each other and get shot up. thats how i see this going. and if the Japaneses targeting system is a real on and not just a gimmick then the US team is screwed. i actually like the US MSes weapons more if a paint gun fight is what they do. you can only aim in one direction as a time. spaying and praying is rarely a good thing. only for cover fire.

    I disagree with the dual pilot set up, if one focuses on just moving and the other just on firing that would make the mech alot more efficient, of course teamwork and communication is paramount.

    No Drift = no two-pilot setup.
