epyon

On October 22nd, Gundam Epyon will join the current roster of Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost. Teased during the TGS 2013 show when promoting the upcoming PS3 version of the game, Gundam Epyon returns from its last appearance in Gundam vs Gundam Next Plus. Obviously boasting its melee attack style, its patented heat whip and mobile armor mode are all intact in this new iteration. This will be a nice addition to the current roster which can always use more melee mobile suits. Check out the teaser vid for Epyon below!

Reviews: Armored Core Verdict Day (10/10)

Posted on : 10-10-2013 | By : | In : Reviews

acvd_cover1In the case of Armored Core’s history as a series, each major shift in functionality has met with a follow on title that polishes and improves the original setup. Sometimes these are just general changes but occasionally they coalesce into something truly great. These games have also normally been the best of that era. Titles like Master of Arena and Silent Line for instance marked the pinnacle of the previous two console generations.

Verdict day is a direct continuation of the previous game and utilises much of the same inherent structure, both for the expansive multiplayer but also the campaign. What’s different are all the substantial low level changes as well as all new systems that sit atop them. It’s quite frankly the best mecha game we’ve played this console generation.

The eight and final episode for Super Robot Wars Operation Extend is now out. If you’ve already bought the combined pack then you can download it for free, otherwise you’ll pay 1000 yen.

News: Super Robot Wars OG Infinite Battle Unit and Gameplay Update

Over at 4Gamer they have a new piece on Super Robot Wars OG Infinite Battle, specifically regarding new units and gameplay details. In terms of the latter, it seems that the game will support 3v3 battles (as shown above). This is an interesting choice, especially as 2v2 is already quite difficult to manage in an arcade based situation. That aside, it also looks like we’ll be getting to play with R-2 Powered. This is something we’re quite happy about. Don’t forget that you can still pre-order the game here.

We now finally have a promo for the upcoming Shin Gundam Musou. This shows off both official and ultimate modes as well as what appears to be playable mobile armors (the latter being somewhat comical). Unlike previous entries in the Gundam Musou series this will not have a 360 release. This is hardly surprising as 360 sales in Japan are pretty much non-existent. The game will be released on both PS3 and Vita on the 19th December. Don’t forget you can pre-order both versions here (PS3) and here (Vita).

Over at 4Gamer they have a nice piece showing off a variety of units in the forthcoming Super Robot Wars OG Infinite Battle. These are all noteworthy units, with mecha like the Valsione (above) appealing to the more classic Original Generation fanbase. We’re hoping that the Raioh from Alpha 3 will make an appearance too, as that’s one of our favourite Original Generations mecha. Apart from that, the game is still looking pretty bland but hopefully it won’t matter so much once we get to play it come its release this November. Don’t forget that you can still pre-order the game here.

There are some really great photos of the upcoming 1/60 scale YF-19 by Arcadia. Despite the new sculpt and missile hardpoints on the wings, the interesting addition is the new swept back wing setup. The gunpod looks a lot beefier and cooler too. Whilst this will cost 32,800 yen come its release in April of next year, there’s a lot of new engineering here to make that price seem somewhat justifiable. You can pre-order the toy here.

News: Armored Core Verdict Day Regioning Update

Following on from this post, we now know that the EU and US 360 versions of Armored Core Verdict Day are indeed region free and share the same server. However, the Japanese 360 version is region locked and is on a separate server. Both PS3 versions are region free, like pretty much every PS3 game, but again the Japanese release is on a separate server, with the EU and US games again sharing one server. The reason for this, we’re guessing, is that Bandai Namco publish the game outside of Japan with From Software handling that region directly. So the releases are handled by separate publishers and consequently locked out from one another.

Separately, for those that have been following the game’s release it’s also clear that Bandai Namco are up to something pretty dodgy. As the game has had no marketing whatsoever, with no-one knowing the game is even out. The release window, being so close to Grand Theft Auto V, also seems a bit strange too as it would be obvious to any marketing department that you’d steer clear of that. Otherwise your game will just get buried. This has begged the question as to whether Bandai Namco are trying to kill the series off entirely. The latter wouldn’t be overly surprising as they’re clearly only really interested in Dark Souls at this point.

Anyway, we’ve already finished the campaign and been playing the game online a fair bit and our review will be forthcoming hopefully this week. In the meantime, you can read a decent review of the game here. There are also some nice new trailers out too, so have a look at them below.

Update: The international ACVD Link is now up.

Toys: Robot Damashii Hi-Nu Gundam Details

As we previously covered, Bandai are finally releasing a Robot Damashii Hi-Nu Gundam. We now know that it will cost a very reasonable 5,775 yen and will be released in January of next year. The really good news though is that this will be a regular release and not a webshop exclusive. This toy won’t come with the Hyper Mega Bazooka Launcher though but apart from that omission it’s weapon compliment is pretty thorough.
