Welcome to Super Robot Wars: Alpha Gaiden!

Super Robot Wars? What's that?
Super Robot Wars is a turn based Strategy RPG series that pits various Giant Mecha from different games and anime, and let them beat each other into scrap metal. Sadly the series has been mainly Japanese only, but they localized Original Generations 1 and 2 for the GBA, and the RPG spinoff Endless Frontier for most English speaking countries.

Luckily, AGTP has translated a few of the other games, so instead of sticking with Banpresto's original characters, we get to play as Mazinger, Getter, Gundams of all shapes and sizes, and many others.

So what's Alpha Gaiden about?
Alpha Gaiden takes place between Alpha 1 and Alpha 2, where everyone is trying to save the Earth from a massive shockwave that resulted from the final battle of Alpha 1

Things turns out to be much, much more complicated than it sounds.

I've never even heard about half of these series!
Worry not! For I other giant robot enthusiasts shall do my their best to give a summery of both the series in question, and their relative usefulness in the game.

How are you going to be doing this? Any Viewer participation?
I will be going through the Hard route, doing my best to get every single Skill Point in the game. In regards to Viewer participation, if you want me to show off a certain mech or pilot, go ahead and say so.

I will also be using a New Game+ save file, which allows me to start off with a shitload of money, but nothing else.

Special thanks to Hokuto for giving me the translated script files for Alpha Gaiden.
