Are Giant Robots making a comeback?
Most of us here at the lab are excited about the movie, Pacific Rim, which is coming out this summer. Giant robots fighting giant monsters!!!! It is the next best thing to someone creating a live action Neon Genesis Evangelion movie. *dreams* I grew up watching TV shows like Robotech, Voltron, Transformers and Tranzor Z (originally known as Mazinger Z.) Needless to say, MechQuest was highly inspired by my love of those shows. Not to mention all of the anime series that I got into: Gundam, Eva, Code Geass, Gurren Lagann, Full Metal Panic, Eureka Seven, Big O, Escaflowne (OMG I LOVED ESCAFLOWNE.... Giant Robots with Swords and Capes!) and a lot of obscure ones like Nadesco, Rahxephon, Fafner and for some reason my most favorite spoof series, "Dual! Parallel." I really do hope giant robots are making a comeback... if so, the end of MechQuest's main storyline is coming at a perfect time. An upsurge in robofatuation would let us build MechQuest 2 as an Omni game! *dreams more*
