Super Spaceship Wars

Funnily enough, it could be argued that the visual format used by Super Robot Wars games is better suited to ship battles; although the following video isn't especially graphically sophisticated, it still amuses me a fair bit.

Why? Because one of the "attacks" in the video (which is not from an actual game but a mockup of one, using designs and characters from the anime Legend of the Galactic Heroes, which I hear is very good but not licensed for English distribution) is based on a one-time event where a character destroyed an orbital defense network by ordering engines attached to a bunch of comets and bombarding them from a distance, and presenting one-time special events as a regular attack is something that is extremely common in Super Robot Wars games. Whoever did this video knows their stuff.

-Signing off.
