There's this weird game tucked into the bottom right corner of the imports page.

It's like Virtua Fighter AND Cyber Sled?

The Veef Files
Origins of the VF-25

Written by Andrew (VF5SS)

On the eve of Macross’s twenty-fifth anniversary, there was much trepidation as to how the series would progress in terms of Valkyrie designs after the side-story, Macross Zero. The titular VF-0 was essentially another take on the classic VF-1 design so there did not appear to be much progress. The VF-0’s antagonist, the more visually striking Sv-51, garnered a fair bit of interest on its own and is features some unconventional touches that seemed to usher in Macross’s move to using computer generated imagery to render robots and other vehicles. Despite many prominent scenes in Zero utilizing hand drawn robots, the talk of the community was how CG had allowed for more complexity in Valkyrie designs.

This is what I do when the Bruins are disappointing me.

Not bad for a first try, wouldn't you say?

I wouldn't put any of these jackasses in charge of anything!

Especially you, Docker!

So the note from Shoji Kawamori for this design sketch for a custom VF-11 calls it a "Vocaloid Valkyrie"

He knew

He always knew

Nothing out of the ordinary.

I'm sure we'll still be playing You Don't Know Jack and Ultimate 8-ball years later.

I originally posted this on in a thread about what makes a good combat scene. Since I was recently mulling over Gundam 08th MS Team, I felt the need to show how obviously smart I am and debunk the idea of the infamous Gouf Custom fight as a "good combat scene."

I'm putting this post on my blog for posterity. It's probably easier to reference this than tell people to listen to the matching Veef Show. I will also update this post with new information as it becomes available.


I feel I can speak with some certainty with regards to Macross that the reason there is no large modern Regult is because it's not seen as being terribly important or even iconic. Yeah, it's kind of a neat walking egg design, but even in Japan those are common. It never had any specific character tied to it and was effectively only created for the big reveal (in the second episode) that hey, we've got space giants. Later in the show it was supplanted with arguably cooler and more traditional humanoid power suits like the Queadluun Rau that Milia uses, which is great because it's tied to a specific character. When it came time to do Macross Do You Remember Love, the Regult was relegated to a cameo where it gets blowed up real good.
