Videos: Extreme Gundam Excellia Added To Gundam EXVS Maxi Boost On Roster

Bandai Namco have added a brand new original unit to the Maxi Boost On roster, Extreme Gundam Excellia. This unit is comes from the Gundam EXA universe and piloted by Sthesia, who you might know as the main navigator of the series. Excellia looks to be a pretty solid long range unit with gerobis, funnel-like beams, and AoE blasts. Considering its variety of attacks and health, it looks to be at least a 2500 cost unit. And if you aren’t lucky enough to play this in Japanese arcades but have Extreme VS Force, this unit will also be appearing in the 1.04 update coming some time in the near future. Until then, check out some Excellia gameplay in the video below!

News: Gundam Mobile Suit Sounds for Fallout 4’s Power Armor

fallout4_gundam

If like me you saw Fallout 4’s power armour, and began to imagine the Gundam or mecha related possibilities in that through modding. Then like me you’re probably pretty disappointed, and a little confused at the lack of such mods. Even after almost 6 months since release, and more than a week since the G.E.C.K was released… Nadda, zip, zilch, and boy have I looked.

It’s not all bad news however, as mod author Artesia58 came up with a sound effects replacement mod named Ultimate Robot Sound that replaces the standard power armor sounds with ones from Mobile Suit Gundam. Not only that but an optional file also replaces the laser rifle’s stock sfx with that of the Gundam’s famous beam rifle, the V.A.T.S noise with the Newtype flash, AND replaces the “flames” paint scheme for the T-45 power armour with a Char’s Custom scheme instead. Over all I’m pretty impressed, and it works really well in game. It’s just tons of fun.

I went ahead and made a small video to demo the mod, which you can view below. So if you’ve got Fallout 4 and you really want a little more Gundam in it. I can’t recommend this mod highly enough.

Videos: AGE-FX Added to Gundam Extreme VS Maxi Boost On Roster

agefx

While previously teased on banners before the game’s official release last month, it looks like AGE-FX is finally joining the rest of the cast in Gundam EXVS Maxi Boost On. As a 3000 cost unit, AGE-FX will definitely lay on the hurt with its arsenal of flying bits and porcupine-esque melee action. To help give it a bit more variety, AGE-FX can call on AGE-2 Dark Hound and the AGE-1 Full Glansa for various types of defensive and offensive assists. It also looks like it has somewhat of a mobile armor movement with AGE-FX hanging onto AGE-2 Dark Hound. There are also the C-Funnels for funnel hounding and the FX-Burst mode that improves your melee and movement capabilities. If you’re lucky enough to live in Japan and next to a game center, definitely give it a whirl and let us know how it stacks up to the rest of the cast. If not, you’ll just have to check out the video below!

Videos: Rigs Continues To Look Promising

rigs_vr_new

While we’re still not fans of the mecha design in the upcoming game game Rigs, it does look like it will be functionally good. Considering all the hype surrounding VR, much of it down to visuals rather than functionality, we’ve been pretty skeptical about how much traction it will have with gamers. From a mecha standpoint, it could really help to make you feel that you are a pilot but much of that is also down to how the game controls. The good news here is that Rigs looks like it really understand the latter as well. With PlayStation VR out at the end of the year and for a decent price at that, we will definitely be picking Rigs up come its release.

News: Dual Gear Could Be A Great Mecha Strategy Game

dualgear_game

We’ve been keeping an eye on Dual Gear since its Indiegogo campaign was announced a while back. Using Unreal Engine 4 it looks to be an interesting blend of turn based strategy coupled with a more action based approach. While it’s sad to see the crowdfunding campaign not supported as fully as it could be, the game now has a demo on Steam. Visually it looks good too and we really appreciate the mecha design as well. Developed by a small team in Thailand, we hope this game gets the support and recognition it so clearly deserves.

Videos: Course Battle and New Units Added to Gundam Extreme VS Force in Version 1.03

Version 1.03 for Gundam Extreme VS Force has been released, bringing in lots of new content. This new patch adds six playable Mobile Suits to the fray, Course Battle mode, and other quality of life additions. Some of the new mobile suits include the brand new Mack Knife, GP02A, and Turn X Gundam. The inclusion of Course Battle mode was one of the many modes fans were clamoring to be added when the game first released in December of last year. It brings in the usual multi-stage courses that have been in previous Gundam Extreme VS games with varying difficulties. In the quality of life updates, Free Battle 1.01 adds the VS screen prior to a match starting and you can now change locked mobile suits in the Extreme Force mode once you’ve completed the mission. There’s also a custom button configuration for those of you who don’t like the default controls.

As for Version 1.04, Gundam Virsago Chest Break and Tallgeese II are joining the roster on top of more Free Battle updates. There’s also another addition to the roster that is currently unknown. Hopefully we’ll see more additions to the next update list, but until then check out the video of the Version 1.03 below!

Looks like we have our first individual mobile suit gameplay trailer for Gundam Extreme VS Maxi Boost ON! It features the Mack Knife from G no Reconguista. As a 2000 cost mobile suit, it looks to have many tools with mid-range stuns, a mobile armor mode, and grappling hooks to pull enemies in for some close range shenanigans. The unit will also be released on Gundam Extreme VS Force as part of the co-collaboration between the two games on March 9th. Perhaps we’ll see more units from ON come to Force in the near future as well. Until then, check out the gameplay video below!

For those of you lucky enough to be living in Japan, the month of March will be exciting for Gundam VS fans over there. At the recent JAEPO expo, Bandai Namco have officially announced that Gundam Extreme VS Maxi Boost On will be released on March 9, 2016. As the latest version of the Extreme VS series, there will be the usual new suit additions, move changes, and game mechanic changes from the previous version. New to the fray are the G-Self, AGE-FX, Akatsuki Gundam, and Gundam Barbatos. There also appears to be a pink Gundam with a peacock smasher-like in the opening movie, which is probably from Gundam EXA. There are also three new bursts to choose from which replace the Drive system from Maxi Boost. Fighting Burst improves your melee capabilities, Shooting Burst improves reload speeds and allows you to cancel shooting attacks into each other, and Extend Burst allows you to escape attacks at half meter. There are over 160 units in the game as well!

As for everyone else that doesn’t have access to an arcade in Japan or Asia, we can only hope they announce Maxi Boost for the consoles soon after Maxi Boost On is released. Until then, check out the opening video and first PV below!

Bandai Namco have recently released the second PV to Gundam Breaker 3. This time it’s an 11 minute video showcasing the new variations of customization you can have on your mobile suits, how SD Gundams are implemented, and other game modes such as Story mode, Bounty Hunter and Challenger mode. Visually, the game is looking very nice running on the Playstation 4, especially when adding the weathering options to your mobile suit. While we still have more than a month until release, check out the video below!

News: Super Robot Wars OG The Moon Dwellers Announced

moondwellers_new

To commemorate the series’ 25th Anniversary we will be getting a new Super Robot Wars game on both PS4 and PS3 later this year. However, this won’t be a mainline release and instead will be an OG (or Original Generation) game called The Moon Dwellers. In the latest promo video (shown below) the game looks very nice indeed but after winkysoft’s recent demise, this announcement is somewhat bittersweet as they were the original developer behind these games and helped out on recent OG titles as well. The other big takeaway from this is that the game will not have a Vita version, unlike the last two Z3 games (both of which were great fun). The good news here though is that the series is finally changing up to PS4 and that means a mainline release should not be far off, as these games share a lot of tech. In the meantime, we have a new Super Robot Wars game to look forward to sometime this year.
