    ^The suit already dampens shitloads of pain. Most gantzers we know of have taken massive hits, then stand right back up as if nothing happened - one of the more blatant example is Reika when she got chewed and spat out by that dinosaur. Usually, when they start screaming is where they lose a limb, and if you are so high on drugs that you can't feel something that big... at any rate, it wouldn't be a good thing on Katou. We all know he get x2-x3 juice every time he loses a limb. I expect him to pawn the last boss of this mission with just one hand - and next mission, he'll pull the trigger with his teeth.

    Pretty sure that the swords still work, they probably just have to hit head on. One of the aliens on page 6-7 turns up split in half on page 14 (still seems to be alive though).

    It's still just ridiculous though, the Buddha statues were never this hard.

    Thats because of the H Gun (Gravity gun, 100 pointer gun), not because of the sword.

    As I pointed out, the use of drugs on battlefields is common and tolerated by the high ranks if not even pushed by them. During the first world war alcohol was shared to the soldiers before a battle, on the following wars drugs have been used in large quantity. They can even low down the performance of a fighter but it's better a bad soldier than a soldier that doesn't shot or run away. This shows also the hypocrisy of any army: soldiers found with drugs on normal duty/training are heavily punished but when the shit really hit the fan the troops are used like cannon fodders.

    Gantzers + amphetamines/benzedrine ("speed" if you watched "Vanishing Point") + suits during a mission would just increase the performance and the lack of fear and pain. In the pants of a Gantzer (I'm already dead and if I survive the mission I'll be transferred back fresh as a daisy) I would carry with me some pills or some white powder with a syringe. What Osakans did before start fighting was so common sense incomparison with the jibber jabber/cold sweat of the Tokio team, at least they lost because they were a bunch of individuals and not a group but it's only (or probably...) a peculiar case of (our) Tokio team to have practiced together out of the missions, the Osakans looked to me like a competing group of survivors from individuals battles. Pure fun. I loved them...

    I wonder what steroids would do for a Gantzer. I mean you'd already be amped up. If someone just looked at you sideways you'd be ready to rip their head off.

    It's a shame that there will never be a Finnish team in Gantz. It would be rather funny to see a team of drunk finnish guys ganking one 1-point alien and kicking the shit out of it.

    (In Finland, that's how we roll =D)

    In my defunct Gantz rpg book, I had rules in the Phase 2 adaption book about Gantzers and substances. The best in games terms after playtesting turned out to be speed and coke, however, like all stuff like that, its not all pros. Team-work become a real issue for one (much like the Osaka team).
