Just a follow-up to the first post in this thread -- the two most recent Super Robot Wars games include an English translation, although for legal reasons neither is officially available in North America. (The translation is apparently targeted at English speakers in Singapore.) "Let's Plays" of both games are up on YouTube, if you're interested in following the plot and being introduced to some fairly obscure anime. As yet, though, there's never been one that has any of the Macross series mixed with Superdimensional Cavalry Southern Cross and Genesis Climber Mospeada. Maybe next year. ;)

Super Robot Wars V Playthrough -- Last year's game, and as it features the remade Space Battleship Yamato as a central part of its storyline, I'm inclined to view this as the more awesome of the two.

Super Robot Wars X Playthrough -- This is most recent game, released in March of this year, and on t'other hand, this one has Nadia: The Secret of Blue Water. Still in progress.

The poster has a decided tendency to take forever to make up their mind to figure out what they're going to do on any given action, so I find myself fast-forwarding over the actual battles to get to the story. Your mileage may vary.

In relevant news, just a couple days ago, Super Smash Bros. Ultimate was announced. claiming to be the biggest video game crossover. And given that it includes every single playable character in Smash history (Everyone is here!), plus a few new ones, and most of the stages return..yeah. It's pretty amazing. 66 (!!) playable fighters in total according to the website, but the number gets a bit confusing when you include the "echo fighters", which is what they're calling clone fighters now. Oh yeah, and Ridley from Metroid is finally included as a playable character.

Be awesome if they included a Sub-Space Emissary-style Story Mode. Said story wasn't groundbreaking, but they did have some awesome moment, and you got to see things like iconic characters taking on iconic minions of other iconic characters, like Donkey Kong punching Goombas and Koopa Troopas.
