    Well, let’s see. I knew about MAV a long time ago, back when it was something of a fever dream and had like, 20 parts total or something. Rediscovered it a few days ago and fell in love with how it seems like it’s developing. The nostalgia I feel when building hounds- erm, MAVs is certainly enough to bring a single manly tear to my eye.

    Chromehounds was a blast but gone too soon, and MAV will hopefully fill that void. Armored Core and MWO just don’t quite do it (both are hella fun though).

    Personally, I’m a freshly-graduated engineer with my sights set on building walking tanks for a living. Guess I’m playing the right game. With a lean diet of giant robot games, anime, and an engineering degree, what could go wrong?

    I also have a deviantart, if anyone wants to check that junk out: kojimastorm.deviantart.com

    Aaand I’m looking forward to nursing my slowly-growing relapse into the wonderful addiction that is hexagonal hard-point construction :3

    First off, good to have you. Second, do you know about Megabots? There’s people developing Mecha for international sporting bouts, ala G Gundam- Currently we’ve got America vs. Japan going on, but hopefully it’ll grow into a more popular thing. They might be looking for a Walking Tank engineer- or maybe you might be able to start up your own!

    That and Battlebots. If you can make a viable walker in Battlebots, you can make one for anything.

    Megabots, talk about unf. I remember finding the KURATAS machine years ago when it first debuted, and when Suidobashi agreed to Megabots’ challenge last year, I hit the freaking roof. I’d love to maybe start my own company like that someday, but for now, I’ll stick to giant robit walking simulators :3

    Top 5? Eh, I dunno. In no particular order I’d have to say Nichijou, Samurai Champloo, Code Geass, any given Gundam arc, and of course DBZ, though I guess most peple don’t consider that one anime
    Oh, and FLCL was pretty dope

    Blegh. Gundam. I understand that the story is good, and it’s great that such a heavy sci-fi is so popular, but I just can’t stand the Mecha portions of it- the sound effects are horrible and super out of date, and I’ve never liked the super-humanoid bots that they use.

    I was just thinking that, once the Large Melee Mass Driver weapons come in, all we need is a fancy art deco pointy bit, and we could make Big Os.

    We’re waiting for piles, I’d totally convert all the bots on my servers to pile karts and do team arena with bots vs humans.

    Yaaaas, jousting tournaments galore. Maybe we could have heat piles too, for damaging and heat-spiking opponents at the same time.

    Screw it, lemme just affix a crane boom with a wrecking ball to my MAV. Or a mining drill. Let’s get some industrialmechs up in this bitch
