So, I was following some of the news links, and was reading the ***** Attack article. Like an *****, I decided to look at the comments, wholly expecting griping about "PAY2WIN" and "MECHWARRIOR SUX," but instead found a number of positive comments, as well as one which simply read:

"YOU DIG GIANT ROBOTS! I DIG GIANT ROBOTS! WE DIG GIANT ROBOTS! CHICKS DIG GIANT ROBOTS!"
Eh, and it was a link. Since I lack the basic skills to make a link, here it is:
EDIT: Right, doesn't show up until you post. Duh. So, for those too lazy to follow the link, here's the video:

Nice.

Yes, it's a bunch of anime, but the song brought manly tears. MANLY TEARS. Plus, I was laughing so hard that I was crying. AND, it fits this perfectly with the sort of "giant robot" stomping we're going to be doing. And yes, "robot" is incorrect when referring to our beloved BattleMechs, I'll be the first to say, but it's a fun song, with some crazy animation.

Have fun guys, and post more of this sort of thing is you have/find it.

Song in the vid is the theme tune from an American cartoon called Megas XLR.

Right. I mentioned that in the post, but it got lost with editing. And I ended up staying up late and watching the first episode again. Good times, man...

This whole forum has been like that. Running into Megas again just added to it.

Aye, same here. Used a nice internet tool to rip the audio, so it's on my iPod now. And constantly running through my head...

Darn you, Alistair Steiner! Now that you've made me miss Megas XLR, I miss Toonami as well!
Now I have to go sit in a corner and pretend not to cry about it.....

I miss Toonami too, but there's an interesting site you may be interested in. I'm loving it so far. If you're okay with low quality episodes (but all in one place so you can watch them at your leisure), check here.

Hey, I've heard of that! If you're interested, some hardcore fans are busy making this.
