Thursday Stream: The Gateway Guide to Super Robot Wars at 5pm PT/8pm ET

Kat plays the newest entry while explaining the basics of Bandai Namco's long-running mecha mashup.

Over the past few years, I've had a lot of people ask me, "Where should I start if I want to get into Super Robot Wars?" Well, this is your opportunity to find out, as I'll be using today's stream to discuss the basics of the series while playing Super Robot Wars Z3 Tengoku Hen.

Bandai Namco released Tengoku Hen last Thursday, ostensibly bringing the Super Robot Wars Z subseries to a close. The newest game features such notable mecha series as Rebuild of Evangelion, Gundam Unicorn, Full Metal Panic, and Gurren Lagann, as well as various protagonists and antagonists from the previous five games in the Z series. It'll be in Japanese, but that's okay because I'll be there to talk you all through the menus, the strategy, and the various mech series.

If you want more information about Super Robot Wars, you can find my other articles about the series here and here. Tomorrow I'll be posting a more extensive Gateway Guide to the series, which will include an archived version of this stream.
