Videos: Zone of the Enders HD Collection Anubis Opening

With the Zone of the Enders HD Collection set for release next month, Konami are beginning to start their endgame PR push. Part of this is the release of the HD version of Anubis’ opening (linked below). This is the exact same opening that was on the 2003 PS2 game, so they’ve basically re-done the exact same game capture footage from the new HD version. Whilst that may sound trivial, it’s really very not. That aside, it did make us feel that this generation hasn’t really done very much when a game from 2003, that we didn’t overly enjoy in the first place, made us feel excited just from its opening movie.

Following on from Macross Last Frontier, Bandai decided to fund yet another mini-game for the suitably epic Macross Do You Remember Love BluRay release. Entitled My Boyfriend is a Pilot 2012, the game covers the events in the film and takes Artdink’s PS3 tech forward a bit further. What follows is our hands-on impressions with the new game.

News: Gunhound EX Announced

Whilst we meant to review the awesome PC version of Gunhound we never got around to it (it is awesome though). However, we now know that there will also be a PSP version released in December of this year called Gunhound EX. Sort of a remake(ish), it’s being co-developed with G.Rev this time. In addition, it will still feature music by the lovely Kinuyo Yamashita as well as new tracks from the pretty mad Hyakutaro Tsukumo. The game will also be released on PSN but a limited edition box set will also come packaged with cels and an all important soundtrack CD. We’ll be picking this up though and definitely reviewing it this time.

Toys: Play Arts Kai Sam Gideon

Our good friends at HobbyLink Japan have sent us the Play Arts Kai Sam Gideon from the suitably brilliant game Vanquish. Whilst we have talked about the game on the site before we haven’t reviewed it, as it’s not really a full on mecha title. However, its mecha heritage in terms of the design is pretty interesting. In addition, we’ve also included some game footage at the end of the review.

Videos: 2nd Super Robot Wars OG Extended Promo

As promised, we now have a new and longer promo for 2nd Super Robot Wars OG. It’s very shiny indeed and shows that Banpresto have taken their time with this game for good reason. Much of the new animations use far more depth and three dimensional movement compared to previous games and the technical (as well as art/animation) aspect of that is by no means trivial. Plus, all the new jingling boobage is also something that clearly needed time to perfect. In any case, our body is very ready for this one.

News: Gundam Spiegel added to Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost

On the 28th August the mighty GF13-021NG Gundam Spiegel will be added to Gundam Extreme Versus Full Boost. In addition, the African desert stage from the previous game will also be incorporated into Full Boost. Anyway, we’re looking forward to breaking out some Sturm Und Drang in matches again. For those that don’t know, “spiegel” is the German word for mirror. So if you know anything about G Gundam and its story, then that should be something moderately interesting.

Kits: Metal Gear Rex Announced

Whilst it was recently revealed at this year’s Wonder Festival, Kotobukiya have officially announced the release of a truly gorgeous 1/100 scale Metal Gear Rex kit in December of this year. This is not to be confused with the huge and hugely expensive threeA toy, as this kit is smaller and costs a lot less (as well as needing to be assembled and painted obviously). The sculpt also looks spot on and for the money this is something I’d rather have over the threeA toy, as the latter has no diecast to speak of (which at that price is fucking disgraceful). As always, you can pre-order the kit here for a very reasonable 6,240 yen.

News: 2nd Super Robot Wars OG Maximum Break and Combination Attacks

Over at 4Gamer they have details on the Maximum Break and Combination Attacks for 2nd Super Robot Wars OG. Specifically that the Maximum Break uses the combined manpower of two Twin Units, for a total of four units bringing their firepower to bear. Whereas the Combination Attacks are when a unit attacks its main target and then also attacks other enemies in the nearby vicinity. There are lots of nice new screenshots in the update too and the game is looking very nice indeed.

News: Transformers Fall of Cybertron Released Today

Despite not covering the game all that much, Transformers Fall of Cybertron is released in the US today (and Europe at the end of the week). We actually quite enjoyed the first game and this looks at least as good. As a nice touch there will also be a G1 Retro Pack DLC too, which is a cool nod to the fact that this game effectively sets up the narrative arc for the G1 series anyway.

Videos: Lost Planet 3 GamesCom Trailer

What with GamesCom underway, we now have a new Lost Planet 3 trailer to see (linked below). It hints more of the story and shows that this could be a prequel of sorts but the characterisation shown is horribly trite and typically parochial. The mecha combat looks like it might be interesting but overall we’re pretty skeptical about this new entry into the Lost Planet series.
