The world has ended.
« on: March 29, 2004, 01:41:37 PM »
Spriggan and I have found something to agree on. Mekton Zeta!
A great game from a company that sadly makes more games for the Xbox now than for roleplaying.
Mekton Zeta and its sister book of advanced Mecha creation (mekton Zeta plus) rock serious erm... rocks!

The line was surprisingly big, with two setting books, a whole campaign and a cool GM screen with cinematic battle rules...

Its an automated robot. Based on Science!

hehe

Well the company that makes Mekton dosen't make Xbox games.  The guy that owns the publishing company (R talason) is a game designer for Microsoft.  Sadly, but expected, the guy got tired of makeing pen and paper RPGs so now he makes videogames.  But he wasn't one of the main writers for mekton Z (ie third edition).
Screw it, I'm buying crayons and paper. I can imagineer my own adventures! Wheeee!

Chuck Norris is the reason Waldo is hiding.

Yes and who makes the Xbox? Microsoft. The Rtalsorian website talks in depth about working on Xbox games.

umm again Jeffe, Rtalsorian is not a Videogame company they only do pen and paper stuff.  The man that Ownes Rtalsorian works for microsoft (and in a article a year and a half old talks about xbox games).  That dosen't mean microsoft owns Rtalsorian.  Rtalsorian is his hobby and doing Xbox stuff is what pays the bills.

Its good that we could disagree and misunderstand each other so quickly, restores my faith that the world still has a few good years left.

Im talking about Mike and not the company and responding to your statement that he doesnt make Xbox games (which he claims he does).

wow somebody's a little edgy right now.  This is just me and Jeffe's standered discussion format.  Think of it as a bit we do.

It is sad they don't support the game anymore beyond publishing the core rules.  I think if they took this around to anime cons they would get some good sales.

I'm just tired of the even mentioning you don't understand each other and being "in your face" about it.

Think of it as pre-emptive anti-flaming.
