Yeah, the transporters in ZX should have refilled BME as well as LE.  Advent's wasn't too bad, but I agree that ZX using it for charge shots was kinda awkward after 4 Zero games and 1 ZX game of having it free.  The auto-refill was nice, but it hurts the Giga Crush.  There should have been a chip that increased the recharge time of the gauge, would've made things a bit easier.
When I tried for Medals...
Oh God...
...When Larry the reploid accountant goes maverick of his own accord, he's certainly formidable during tax season, but he isn't going to provide X the challenge needed to make him grow as a warrior and reach his potential.

BTW, how come Atlas has a male voice in the US version?
I always considered Atlas a bulldyke.

Yeah pretty much.
Unless She's drawn by Sigehiro, in which case she is somewhat Tsundere.

You don't like anything, don't you?

What happens in Vegas stays on Youtube. I also stream on Twitch from time to time.

(Roughly) As many buttons as western keyboards, but each press sort of forks out into several options, is what I heard.

Acting like: "What a jerk you are!" "[tornado fang]ing moron." Get lost [parasitic bomb]-for-brains!"
But actually feeling: "oh I actually love him/her so much! But I can't let him know so I'll act like an ass!"
