So Pacific Rim has me hyped as shit. Monsters, giant robots, international figting team, and a big dose of humanity, FUCK YEAH. Are there any games or systems that would let me pull off some kind of cross of XCOM and Pacific Rim? A team of soldiers and/or mecha pilots must fight the giant monsters and their alien overlords?Also, just check out the kill count for the Australian mech, holy fuck. The Japanese one has 2. How do you out-mecha Japan?
By bein' a rough cunt.Fuckin' kay-jews ain't worth piss in a tin.
>>23990654I imagine when you live in a place that wants to murder you with literally everything in its being, you become quite good at adapting and conquering the things nature throws at you.
>>23990637Japan built the first jaeger. Australia's is the newest. Also, Australians have always been fighting monsters so it's understandable.I really like Japan's Guncannon though.
>>23990637If the question is Giant Robots, the answer is BattleTech.Always.
>>23990688from my understanding, Battletech is pretty lore intensive, right? I tried getting into it once and the feel of it was rather dour, like a 40K mecha game. Nothing wrong with that, but not exactly what I'm looking for.Or I could be entirely wrong and a faggot
>>23990683so wait wait wait.are you really going to sit there and tell me that a giant robot prototype ISN'T better than the ones that come after it?
>>23990728Battletech lore is kinda all over the place.
>>23990800Nah, don't worry man. The whole premise of the movie is that a grizzled veteran about to retire, and the brand new guy have to pilot the legendary but outdated mecha to victory.
>>23990728You don't really need to know the lore to have giant robot battles. The rules are also pretty great in that while you can do fucking anything you want with them, you can still have a very entertaining and fulfilling game at even the most basic level.I also wouldn't describe BT as very "dour", or at least not in the same way as 40k. It's mostly just... fucking huge, and there's always a war (or 20) going on.
Jesus Christ 11 fucking kaiju when Japan has 2?how the hell do they get there so fast? or are kaiju just inclined to go to Australia or something?
>>23990849The Australians had to use the robot on some of the native wildlife. They then proceeded to count this as legit kills.
>>23990800That's a fair point. Prototypes are ALWAYS better. so even though>>23990823 is correct it doesn't explain why Japan is doing so bad.I am now of the belief that Japan has been beating the shit out of the kaiju and Australia, purely on virtue of their speed, has been stealing their kills. It seems like something Australia would do towards Japan.
>>23990844I'm probably just remembering wrong because its late and it was years ago when I looked into it. Battletech is the wargame version and MechWarrior is the RPG, right?
>>23990849Kaiju have predators in Australia. No way they're inclined to go there. >>23990858I like this idea.
>>23990858so long as they don't fight emus them aussies aint afraid of nuthin
>>23990888Perhaps the monsters are afraid of Japan's mechs and just keep headed to other places. The other places just so happen to pass by Australia.
>>23990849these are not all the jaeger, giant mech, that have existed, the few images that have been leaked about the pacific prequel graphic novel show jaeger that are neither Coyote Tango nor Gipsy Danger (or any of the newer ones)probably both CT and GD came late to the party before the next gen was launched (Cherno Alpha, Crimson Typhoon)then the world decided Russel Crowe cannot hold the tide of kaiju alone with just tugga by his side, and build Striker Eureka as his new partner
>>23990800Your picture is kind of a special example, the guys that made the Tallgeese were told make the best fucking thing you can, here's all the money, get to work. They came back with something so overpowered that no ordinary person could pilot the damn thing without killing themselves. So OZ took the design, revised it, and made the much less powerful as well as far easier to mass produce Leo. Most Gundam series have valid excuses for why they follow the super prototype trope, that being that most of the said super prototypes are crash programs utilizing experimental technology that is not duplicated in the mass produced models because it would too expensive to do so.
>>23990924>Cherno AlphaCHERNO BILL FOREVER
>>23990888The monsters are afraid of Japan. They've seen the hentai.
>>23990906Yep. MechWarrior is also the computer games, and the newest iteration of BT RPG is actually known as A Time of War.Actually, you know what? If you are just in this for monster-fitan in a giant mech, maybe something else would be better. I remember how overwhelming BT was at first, and it was basically just my love of the fluff (and the concept of giant robots shooting and beating the shit out of each other) that made me power through it all. I mean, it's still an option, it's just I don't want you to think it's the only one.I heard Mekton Zeta was a good system.
>>23990950Post the poland one.
Its possible Japan's kill count is so low because its other "residents" keep taking care of any others.>>23990858>"Your telling me the Kaiju actually showed up at some point? I thought we were still cleaning up wildlife.">"We have records of 11 successful kill of stuff, which ones were the kaiju?...">"SCREW IT! put em all down, I don't want to go over the footage again!"
>>23990967I'm confused. Did seeing monsters having sex with tons of women offend them?
>>23990969I'd ideally like to play and/or run a game for someone that has an overarching story and character interaction, just with tons of mech violence, maybe with some ground troop stuff mixed in. As I said in the initial post, I really dig XCOM as well.
Wouldn't Adeptus Evangelion count towards this?I mean, yeah, you could run it like the series, but you could easily run it as a monster-of-the-week giant robot kaijuu fighter with little modification.
>>23991057Those are CHRISTIAN monsters, dammit. They won't stand for your deviant tendencies.
>>23991063You could use CthulhuTech since you have giant mech and aliens and shit.
>>23991067It would totally work. Case in point>RahXephon
>>23990992I like how in the trailer Gypsy Danger has a punch enhanced by rocket burners. It's like a Big O homage, which I can dig.
>>23991078I only just found out that existed this saturday, actually. How is it?
>>23991067Also the more I check out this premise the more I'm convinced Adeptus Evangelion is what the OP wants.>>23991072How about Kabbalah monsters?
>>23991063You can very easily do that in A Time of War, in fact, I would put character creation as one of its strong suits, with life paths and shit. And the RPG manages to be deep enough that you can have a fun-as-hell campaign without even touching a mech.
>>23991114I have no clue. I've never actually played a game of it.

>Australia, purely on virtue of their speed, has been stealing their kills.No, they just had a second mech they didn't tell anyone about.
Hrm, some of these Jaegers are equipped with missiles and cannons. I thought there was some official text floating around that said you can't kill Kaijus with such weaponry because they'd explode and release deadly fallout everywhere; hence, they have to build Jaegers to go in and beat the Kaijus into submission with their fists? Or am I remembering wrong and remembering some other mecha fiction?Also, the names for these Jaegers are fantastic. Gipsy Danger, Striker Eureka, Crimson Typhoon, Coyote Tango, Cherno Alpha? How did they come up with these? I DEMAND PACIFIC RIM MULTIMEDIA.
>>23991461>Super secret Nazi mech
>>23991523I'm guessing it's something along the lines of ranged weaponry to soften them up so you can go in and fist them pleasantly.Also I love how the russian one has a nuclear reactor on its shoulders.
>>23991523there's an unofficial webpage, google pacific rim, should be third,fourth, or fifth hitthe jaeger name sound mostly like wrestler names, and since they duke it out with the monsters mostly mano a mano it seems fitting
>>23990888>Australia, purely on virtue of their speed, has been stealing their kills.I can see it happening, Japanees mecha punching and damaging Kaiju until it's nearly dead, then sunddenly, out of the sea, come Australia - which then kill the extreamly weakened Kaiju in just one hit and claim all the glory.
>>23991523I want a video game or RPG based off it. How fucking awesome would that be.
>>23991544Europe will always be safe from the kaiju under the Third Reich.
>>23991585they have confirmed a toy line, a videogame is not entirely out of question

>>23990637Isn't that what all of the DoW 2's were about?

>>23990637Japan was hit the hardest by the monsters. Half the country was wiped out. They had to for the longest survive on conventional combat then they built the first mech. Everyone and their mother copied Japan.

>>23991802North Atlantic, where else?

I can't believe nobody has mentioned Giant Guardian Generation yet. it's a /tg/ associated homebrew, built to emulate the Super Robot Wars games but is capable of covering a very broad set of mecha cliches. it'd be my first pick for a Pacific Rim game.

Britain is not a country situated on the Pacific. Nothing else is relevant. And this is coming from a Brit. In a movie called 'Pacific Rim', I'd raise an eyebrow at a britbot being shoehorned in for no reason. As the fellow Anon said, let the Aussies carry the flag, at one remove.The rest of the world, most likely, is providing logistical support for the pacific nations anyway. After all, if they fall, the Kaiju attacks could spread further putting everyone else in danger.

>>23992990Australia is racist because it has an open job market promoting immigrationNZ isn't racist because it has a job market with relatively few open positions.It's also why so many NZ nationals live in Australia. It's just easier to get a job here.
>>23993010Except they couldn't pursue independent foreign policies. Hell, they couldn't even federate without the British Parliament's consent. They may be called states now, but before federation they were just administrative units within the British Empire, though ones which due to their distance had a fair amount of autonomy
>>23993021>racists fucks.What do Aussies think of us the Italians?
>>23992986Technically that is correct. However, the American Revolution prompted a rather hands-off management style in the Australian colonies, so they were for all intents and purposes independent (but small) nations.

>>23993045Muricans, Brits, and Aussies are like the protagonists in every soldier/cop buddy movie ever. Throwing insults and dismissals at each other all day erry day, but you'd better believe when the shit hits the fan there's no better friends and no better team.
>>23993068Japan is honorubu lone samurai.He doesn't need anybody ;_;
>>23993075>mfw giant jaeger sized sombrero
>>23993070Like, if Elizabeth, Charles and William all abdicated the Australian Crown, we'd have King William and from then on the Australian and British crowns would be seperate.
>>23993075I think Gypsy Danger covers all of NA.
I can only imagine the French Jaeger..
>>23993075A bunch of contra members with AKs.
>>23992801and America, they're a colony of ours. I mean there was a little war but we let them have their tantrum and allowed them to look after themselves, but Britfaggia is still their motherland.
>>23993081The path of war is for us honorubru bother. T_T
>>23993087GD is ONE of the yanks jaegers, and an old one at that being one of the first made
>The japanese jaeger has such a low kill count because it waits motionless in the water. Rain pouring over its hull. Hand on its katana hilt. Waiting for its enemy to draw near then>STRIKE COYOTE TANGO STRIKE!
>>23993054but the whole boat people thing is just a political scapegoat for our problems both parties have adopted
>>23993119It has a low kill count, because monsters are afraid to go to Japan, they know its suicide.e
>>23993132I meant off the boat as in has only been here for 5 minutes. You fool.
>>23993119It has a low kill count, because when the kaiju get to japan, they are welcomed with open arms/tentacles, then raped mercilesslyCoyote Tango only kills them when they escape
>>23993145Does that mean that Japan is using the offspring to make Evas?
>>23993075Giant cocaine powered contrabot.
>>23993150I'm still laughing.
>>23990637I was hyped about it but then I read that the story is same old shit. Something attacks, we fight, we get new shit, oh noes - new shit is shitty, we send some guys we don't like with oldest shit we have, the win. the end.Guillermo I'm not impressed.
>>23990728Battletech, dour? What on earth?Do you remember the BattleTech saturday morning cartoon? That's in-universe canon. It gets treated as anti-Clan propaganda, and even Clanners watch it and get their roffles from classic moments such as "CURSE YOU ADAM STEINER".There's a canonical mech unit called Ace Darwin's WhipIts, it's led by a guy named Ace, he pilots a Panther which is a generally crumpy old light mech, and wears a completely pink paintjob on it. The whole unit gets promptly Darwinized when ambushed by a whacked-out rage frothing Jesushead mercenary unit called the Waco Rangers.There's a mercenary unit named Reed's Brew, whose mainstay is brewing beer, and derping around combat areas in APC's converted into "party boxes", consisting of a heavy beer payload, an expandable dancefloor with loudspeakers and discoballs, a pizza oven, and other stuff.Cameo personages in the lore of BattleTech include Seymour Skinner, Char Aznable (reportedly killed in action, but suspiciously served in the Zeta battallion), Madoka Kasuga, Benton Frasier, a planet named after Captain Harloc, the entirety of the cast from Buckaroo Banzai, Hardy HarHar, and an entire mercenary unit named Canned Heat.Also, kaiju. There's a mercenary unit that specializes in making a side job of propping their mechs up as giant monsters and then rampaging in life-sized props for kaiju movies.
>>23993174We knew Japan was going to win, we always knew this. Why because the Honobruru Japanese Samurai is the only way to deal this threat.
>>23993174What were you expecting? Some bizarre, edgy, oh so innovative plot?Del Toro is a fan of old school Kaiju movies. He is making Pacific Rim as a love letter to them. This is not going to be an arthouse classic or a piece of stupendous cinematographic value. It is going to be a truly awesome move of giant monsters and giant robots kicking the living shit out of one another.It is the movie he wants to make. And it is going to be fucking great.
>>23993174I'm sorry the shit was not to your liking mr shit connoisseur
>>23993179>classic momentsMY HOME PLANET!
>>23993174> oh noes - new shit is shittyAccording to one script Striker Eureka does most of the fighting, holding off a swarm of kaiju. Gipsy Danger is the only one that can survive deep in the ocean however and that's why it is needed for the victory.
>>23993183we needed quentin to be creative director.
>>23993205>Tarantino giant robot movie
>>23993211If it has things that bleed, you know he be happy to point out how much it should be exaggerated. We could have an EVangelion sea of blood.
>>23993222...oh god. Tarantino directs a EVA movie.
>>23991057>insert the "when I catch you I am going to fuck you" Battletech picture here.If you were aliens and you thought the locals raped to death anything they caught, would YOU want to go there?
>>23993236no..I would not... I guess the Kaiju are afraid of Japan.
>>23993202>Australia does most of the fighting. US comes in at the end to steal the glory.Typical just like the wars.
>>23993205Quentin tarantino is a shit director.
>>23993256You are a colossal faggot.
>>23993256You take that back!
>>23993254Not really stealing the glory when the US mech is the only one that can do it. Besides you guys have the most kills by far.
>>23993256Mr. Tarantino has contributed to the moral decay of Western civilisation, but I would hesitate to call him a 'shit director', as I have not seen any of his films.
>>23993286how have you not?
>>23993256More appropriately, Tarantino is a "I do not give a shit" director.As in "Fuck you, I do what I want" and BAM, Django Unchained.
>>23993286>Mr. Tarantino has contributed to the moral decay of Western civilisation...What? Are you fucking serious?
>>23990637You come from a nation where killing the wildlife to survive is as natural as breathing. If there'd be anyone who understands the proper methods of blowing away a scaled-up drop bear, it's Australians.
>>23993309>drop bearDont you mean Cute Koala?
>>23993309At first I wanted to refute this, but then I realised how often I murder deadly spiders on instinct. When it becomes this habitual, it's barely even a thing anymore.
>>23993321If you don't know the difference, you are already dead.
>>23993324yea, critters used to scare the shit out of me but living next to a large river means I have to deal with alot of shit, had to move a diamond python today while rearranging furniture under my house>>23993339good to see a fellow mate whos drop bear aware
>>23993339Wait you are serious? Oh god I am more afraid of Australia now.
>>23993353Don't believe their shit:A drop bear (or dropbear) is a fictitious Australian marsupial. Drop bears are commonly said to be unusually large, vicious, carnivorous koalas
>>23993300I think he might be one of those people who consider describing the decay or even making allegorical fiction of it is participating in it, and that "improper subjects" should be swept under the rug and kept behind a firm facade as in the Goode Olde Victorian Tymes when the brutality of colonialism, misogyny, nationalism, class divide and other horrors could be suppressed and hidden away for the sake of not ruining anyone's afternoon tea with unwanted bits of reality.
>>23993339Wait, how can koala kill you? And why it would want to kill you even?
>>23991389and his name is Amuro
>>23993375Koalas have extremely sharp claws and teeth, due to the whole climbing business. This here is what koalas do when they like you, and look at the dude's leg closely. I remember seeing a clip of a koala huggling a dude's leg, but accidentially tearing his jeans to shreds. Those claws are enough to cut arteries very easily.
>>23993401>it is a lie.There is no such thing as a drop bear. Its a stupid myth.
>>23993353Knowing what to look for could save your life.
>>23993375To drink the moisture from your body.
>>23993363I'm fairly sure I should be offended by this statement given the tone, but I'm finding it hard to tell exactly what you're trying to say.
>>23993404True enough. Doesn't mean a grumpy/overly friendly Koala can't ruin your day though.Every lie is built on a nugget of truth.
>>23993259>>23993263>>23993297No really he is a shit director. He is good at directing "tarantino" movies. He is however a hack.
>>23993363Heavens forbid not misogyny. My balls retract at the thought.
>>23993435That is true.They can fuck you up if they are not high.
>>23993363I can tell with 100% certainty you are black.
>>23993401>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J6hLIP06I_8Be nice to the koala. Or it will not be nice to you. And that's the local herbivore that hangs out eating leaves off trees, folks.
>>23993469All of Australias animal instinctively attack foreign cunts.
>>23993489Damn, it must be tough not being Aboriginal in Australia then ...
>>23993489So you're saying Striker Eureka's fantastic kill streak is because they built it to emulate the local wildlife?
>>23993529No the animals instinctively know who is not Anglo or Noonga. Just likes noongas.
>>23993534Its imbue with the spirit of Australia. It tells the monster a very simple message"FUCK OFF WE'RE FULL"
>>23993555I was wondering how long it'd take for a stop the boats joke
>>23993529Long as you're born in Australia, it's all good. Anything brought in from the outside smells like dinner.
>>23993558stop the boats, planes, students, boat hoppers etc.yes stop them all.
>>23993534its kill count is so high because it is just looking for a roight propa fight, and the kaiju it has faced so far have disappointed it
>and then you realize the Striker Eureka will probably get destroyed to let the main one save the day...
>>23990683 Australians have always been fighting monstersThis is a good point
>>23993119You should write more mech fiction
>>23994192I have no problem with the Aussie jaeger getting knocked on the head at some point. Because in the end Australians aren't typically glory hounds like other nations are(Barring sports). We're by and large team players so if we have to go down so the team can win then that's cool, you can bet though that even as our jaeger blows up we'll have 2 kaiju in a headlock saying "strewth, couple of live ones here lads!"So go on, seal the rift and save the day. We will go home happy just knowing we had a better KDR then anyone else.
>>23994309>"strewth, couple of live ones here lads!"whats the bet that the kaiju to bring eureka down is stingray shaped
>>23994352Too soon. Man not cool.
>Massive amount of Kaijus rise from the sea>All the jaegers charge, trying to contain the onslaught>One by one they are taken out, overpowered and out number>The darkest day in human history as Kaijus march towards every shore>The human race is preparing for annihilation>A single shape rises from the ocean>It looks over beasts of destruction>It starts advancing on the first one shouting, "Crikey, thats a beut.">The tides are turned.
>>23994352>implying it wont be a massive emu kaiju
>>23992887Where have I heard that before...
>>23990637>Also, just check out the kill count for the Australian mech, holy fuck. The Japanese one has 2. How do you out-mecha Japan?Because Australia. Their normal buigs and beasts already terrorize humans, imagine what their kaiju are like.Japan having a low kill count is just because Godzilla's a fucking killstealer.
>>23994442It'd never NOT be too soon. Suck it up.>yfw a grown-up Bindi revenge kills the kaiju in question
>>23994515She's 16Just two more years till she's legal
>>23994498Yeah, I suppose kaiju-on-kaiju violence around Japan really crimps the JDF's style.>fucking Mothra, flying in and ganking my ace kill for the fifth time in a rowOn the other hand, it probably has an assist line longer than can fit on the mecha.
Well, thread is in autosage. Anybody going to make a new one?
>>23994491I said it cause you know Chernobyl and it is shaped like a nuclear power plant.
>>23994559>aving a low kill count isWhenn you do link us.
>>23991022>Speed: 3>Power: Max>Armor: MaxHow Russian of them.
>>23994537dude, its Australia, at age 16 she already is legal, l2get a better country
>>23994559a herp derp>>23994718
>>23994747Oh god... i just realised Bindi is of legal age... fuck if she starts popping out little Steves I'm gonna be pissed.
>>23994747I actually bumped into her last week when i was training at a nearby mountain.She seemed cool, but her mum still comes across as a bit of a bitch.
>>23994764Also Sunny coast fags represent.
