Wait which one? There's the AD one with the stupid name for that government thing, & then there's the UC wannabe with Gundam designs only beaten in gayness by 00's.

Siarnaq is okay. Everything else is awkward as hell.

I don't remember if Grey shouts GO!!!1 in my version as well, though that's only half the problem. Why is it that the Zero series is the ONLY MM series that got the combat yelling right? Omega sounds like he's spitting when he shoots those hueg blaster shots, and it still sounds 500 billion times better than anything ZX or X did.

Because it had Japanese "combat yelling"
ZX Advent had X7 combat yelling.

I like the ZXA voices. I mean, except for Grey, but he's lame to boot anyway. Who the [tornado fang] does he think he is, being built with scars?

At least it's better than that crap X screams when he uses the Z-Saber on a wall.

Grey was voiced by X7's X actor. who was terrible.
then theres Aile... she was butchered. for a little bit, her voice was fine, then suddenly, it sucked.

I never really minded lame voice acting in ZXA because I've always found the ZX games lame on everything except some character designs. Even the gameplay's way too easy.

ZXA on hard mode was annoying. since Model A sucks when it has no BME upgrades.

ZXA's stupid because of the WE being all wonky. Charge shots using WE? What the [tornado fang] is that [parasitic bomb]?

at least it recharges on its own.

And its not like ZX didnt have that either. the only difference was that X and ZX didnt use BME.

Not if use Giga Crush a lot. Upgrading BME actually made using that worse.

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

Sato is right. >.< It drained the weapon energy and you had to wait a long time to fill it.

It was useful against Argoyle and Ugoyle, when you were hunting for medals.

No [tornado fang]ing kidding, it made Condorock's medal such a pain in the ass >_<

That's no excuse. The WE in both ZX games is retarded.

"STOP IT!"

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.

Sounds female to me. :\  Not all girls sound all pretty and high pitched.
