I was replaying Robotech: Invasion the other day, and you know what part I really hate? That bit with where you're on the back of the truck and firing that turret at the oncoming Invid hordes. I always have trouble with that bit. And what's really annoying is that every time you lose, you start right where that stupid soft-focus flashback bit starts playing, the one where it's obvious that both the soldier and the commander making the speech are Greg Snegoff, only for the commander he's doing a bad "character" voice. I wish you could skip those soft-focus flashback bits. Yes, yes -- the REF's counter-invasion failed. We know. He's hearing Invid voices. We know. Drop it and let me get back to the running and the riding and the shooting, OK?
Also: JHC was right-on in the comments. Not being able to ride your Cyclone through the tunnels is REALLY stupid, especially when most of them have clearly marked lanes.
JONATHAN L. SWITZER has written an awful lot about the 1985 animated series ROBOTECH, its sequels and spin-offs. Some of this writing has appeared in THE ART OF ROBOTECH: THE SHADOW CHRONICLES (Stone Bridge Press); other examples appear in the Appendices to the most recent editions of the ROBOTECH MASTERS and NEW GENERATION novels (Del Rey). He draws girls and cartoon dogs at WWW.SCWONKEY.COM, and spends his days selling electronical goods at RadioShack and sleeping a lot less than he used to.
