great video...thanks guys!  Completely agree with Alex's point that these games are incredibly enjoyable until they get oppressively difficult but this looks very promising.

for you guys who haven't understood, this story speaks of this alien race called filune who threatens humanity, it seems this race is able to build better machines than the humanity is capable of, the small team from before went on a non official mission to try get into the core of the enemy territory, meanwhile it seems the enemy kidnapped the "dad" daughters and used them as living core for those 2 machines, but the dad can't bring back both so one stays back and it's used by the enemy to fight against humanity and that's where the story starts more less, the good sister who was brought back by "dad" fights the aliens as she is being piloted by that young boy, while the other sister is piloted by the enemy, and this is the core of the drama, as those 2 prototype is the key to win the war for both sides, as for the legs, it was probably added later by human techs after having studied the machine technology even if probably unable to reproduce it. by the way I've never seen any anime or story related to this I just sort of figured this out, and the game looks enjoyable
