  Never thought of it that way before, but now that you said this though,
this is why I like Japanese mecha as well. Although, the Heavy Gear mecha
aren't too bad. The Jovian Chronclies mecha are very similar to Mobile Suits.
I haven't played those two RPG's, just look at the designs at the DP9

I did play the first HG PC game, but it was two Mechwarriorish for me. Is HG
2 any better?
