  1. ...Now, waiting for the new NFS. The news of a 1992 Ford Escort RS Cosworth appearing in the game was surprising, to say at least, since EA generally overlooked cars from Ford Europe in the past.
  2. F.A.I.T.H and me would have said Clannad. And episode 4 was made of lol and combos. According to a Japanese site for something about love matches with anime characters, Kotomi is my sister. Bad thing? [Y/N]
  3. Hinako continued to keep herself on her toes, since the delegation is already meeting up with the representatives from the Equatorial Union. She knows she got an uphill task of giving a sense of confidence to the female Privates that is currently being with the delegation, but it seems that things are far more troubling than keeping their tempers in check, especially after the altercation earlier. And the huge fuss that one of the Privates started. If she was aware of what happened much, much earlier, the Privates would be at the mercy of the sword. Or probably give them a piece of her mind or two, being higher-ranked than the female Privates, something in which she hoped she would not resort to using, since abusing ranks is not her thing. On the physical side, she would be no match for the Privates, both of them are taller than her. But she probably knows the fighting side better. Maybe it was her soft side that let it slide, or maybe it was something else. But she knew it would be better to leave it to the Privates to settle it for themselves; after all, one of them are of the same age with her, and the other was more older, Hinako knew they are old enough to know what is the best course of action for themselves. She was hoping the incident is not marring relationships within the delegation. Generally being serious, she generally saluted back when she was introduced to Minister Yuan by Lieutenant Amherst, as a sign of respect for the man. It is probably something usual for military figures to meet up with the politicians in trips like this, but in Orb's case, the military figureheads are the politicians, at times when they are required to, being the very people that represent Orb in the most crucial times. After all, she know of someone who comes from the Equatorial Union. As expected, the Astray divers were being unloaded on time, now she is only waiting for the cue for her to move away... And the loud thud from behind the delegation distracted her.
  4. A look at wiki's page about mobile weapon sensors does say that mobile suits in the later times have back up sensors. There were other types of sensors (not just the visuals), but they are more prevalent in mobile suits dealing with special operations.
  5. You can still work with half of the head (that is the reason the Gundam-style dual eyes exist) if it was a mobile suit with dual head-sensors. However, in UC, placement of sensors have moved beyond having only the sensors in the head by the time panoramic cockpits are introduced (about 0080); these need sensors all over the mobile suit to capture the display.
  6. Kotomi is just another TEH MAMIKO character, so yeah. I got a good grasp of it thanks to the Internets.
  7. DiRT. But it is a freaking pain in the @$$ just to get the game running at even normal speeds, so I gave up and wait for the next NFS instead.

    Well, I was hoping that someone else could join in, but probably for other details.
  16. The first thing that went on Hinako's mind is that this is the first time she spent so many days on the Takemikazuchi-class mobile suit carrier. She have seen the carrier from afar during when she was passing by the naval docks during missions and other similar important matters which required attention from the military. However, seeing it on person - and that did not count being on it - is something which words could not be used to describe the sheer humongous scale of the ship alone. Sometimes she wonder where the ship got such a capacity to store that many mobile suit at a single time. Of course, walking around a ship and doing nothing is obviously not part of the daily schedule, so Hinako got some opportunities to try her hand on the Astray Diver. Of course, having a dad that works in the company that manufactures mobile suits for the military might be an advantage, but it took her some time to getting used to an underwater mobile suit in which the only thing she was told from her father was that 'it feels different compared to normal Astrays...don't imagine that you are merely scuba diving in a mobile suit'. At times she was observing First Lieutenant having a go at the Astray Diver, and it was probably safe to say that it took them some time getting used to the underwater mobile suit. Since she was not assigned to flight patrol duties, she was drilled in diplomatic stuff together with the rest...although she would rather not listen to the whole thing about 'the art of hospitality'. Of course, what worried her the most is that she was afraid of crating a huge mess on the big day itself, something which would be an embarrassment for everyone involved. At times she reassured herself that everything will go perfectly fine, although things can only get so far at this moment. The journey ashore with the VTOL did not help at all. There are times when she was excited about being on a rather foreign land, not to mention with curious eyes fixed on them, but there is a fact that she is still a 'normal 17-year old teenage girl'. She have no role in all the politics that happened around, nor she has the power to change them, but she know that there is a reason for everything, and this trip is no exception. Hinako gulped as she followed the First Lieutenant, who made his way out, seeing that she is probably one of the more feminine ones around the Orb delegation...

    Actually, what are we waiting for in that thread?
  19. Erm, I think you can. I think. Even Cagalli wears pants, so, eh.
  20. Of course, the reason she wanted to be there earlier is to get the details, as to what is the cause of the sudden change in schedule and all the glitz having to do with the little visit to Europe. Now, seeing that it is only the three of them, that is, the First Lieutenant, a private and herself, she tried to see if there is any others out there yet, but it does not seem to indicate anything. She quickly moved to the First Lieutenant, to listen to whatever he have to say about all this. She stood there, quietly listening to the details given by the First Lieutenant Amherst on the visit to the Equatorial Union. Of course, it is not only the representatives from the Kingdom of Scandinavia, it was very clear that representatives from the United States of South America might drop in for a visit. What does this tells her is not clear, although she hope that nothing would happen during the visit, since she have heard of the situation between USSA and the Atlantic Federation regarding their 'relationship', which, according to history, was non-existent. She can take up some of the details...until the First Lieutenant mentioned something to her. "Sergeant, I know your experience with the Diver is very limited but I would request that you participate in the actual demonstration. But for extra measures, I also had the mechanics transfer our Murasames over to the carrier." "I would do my best to handle the Astray Divers, sir," Hinako saluted, and replied with a monotonous tone, and tried to use the words she have carefully, since some superiors did not like the use of 'I will try my best' in conversations. Overhearing the line the First Lieutenant passed to the private, Hinako just sighed at the prospect of having to do more than just a simple mobile suit demonstration. After everything is over, she sees that they are being gestured into the VTOL. Dragging her feet, she slowly moves to the VTOL, knowing very well that running while wearing skirts would be very 'unladylike'.
  21. [From 'Fiction and reality '] Things were obviously more hectic for Hinako, for the reason that she is basically some distance away from the base before she was being notified of the changes in location and all the other news that she was to absorb into her brain within seconds. That would mean dropping what she is doing, and immediately return to base to pack up things for the 'mission', if that word was any indication of what she will face soon. Not having any time to waste, she immediately aim her next destination to the Orb base. The trip there was short, but what she have to do next is not...without fail, she managed to slot the key in, open the door, and close it in a matter of seconds without delays or anything to go with it. Probably she have perfected the 'art of quick door opening', but it was nothing more than a way to quickly hide herself in the room if curfew was in place. She basically lives in the room alone. Without a word, she takes her shoes off, and open her wardrobe, and took out the Orb uniform, since many a question will be raised if she continued wearing the civilian attire she was wearing now. She immediately changes to the Orb uniform in the short time and put on a pair of black thigh-highs which ends up right beneath the Orb skirt, before she quickly take a short look at the mirror, before tying the hair into a ponytail. Packing everything she ever needed into the plain duffel, she checked the contents, before giving the all-clear to herself to leave. Quickly, Hinako made her way to the hangar, lugging the duffel with her left hand. She passed through the waves of technicians and mechanics who are currently preparing all they have to prepare for this, as everything is being loaded and unloaded into the carriers. She did not have any time for this, after seeing that the First Lieutenant and another female personnel are already waiting. She made her way through the human traffic, before having herself in front of the First Lieutenant. "Sergeant Shirakawa reporting for duty, sir," she put the duffel down before saluting the First Lieutenant in a no-nonsense tone.
  22. Wangan Midnight Maximum Tune 3, Japanese version. It is fun to drive a Porsche (Gemballas in the game) just to make the ones having only the English versions of the games in the arcades jealous :3 .
