News: Armored Core V Live Stream “Full Burst” Announced

Following on from their various summary videos for Armored Core V, From Software will be hosting yet another live stream of the game on 16th December. Entitled “Full Burst” the stream will be 3 hours long and be suitably thorough by the sounds of it, though we’re not sure what exactly will be covered as From Software are being a tad vague on specifics. You can also follow the stream here on the day.

News: Gundam Extreme Versus Arcade Stick Announced

Considering the arcade heritage behind Gundam Extreme Versus you would have thought that there would a dedicated stick for it. Well, Bandai Namco are going to do just that. Via their Lalabit Market, for the rather large sum of 14,800 yen, you’ll be able to have your very own Gundam styled stick in March of next year. What’s not entirely clear at the moment is who the stick is made by, though it looks like it could be HORI. It’s also a bit odd considering that this will only be available four months after the release of the game itself. We’re already blitzing the game with our Real Arcade Pro. 3 and whilst the Gundam styling of this stick looks pretty nifty we’re not sure what else it really offers to the discerning gamer. As four our review of the game itself, stay tuned for that as we’re writing it now.

Videos: Lord of Elemental II 2nd Promo

Over at the official Lord of Elemental II: Revelation of Evil God site, there’s now a second promo video available. Unlike other sites, Banpresto have finally decided to stream their footage via YouTube. This means we no longer have to put up with crappy laggy footage hosted on an antiquated server in Japan somewhere. The promo itself is also rather lovely too obviously and the animation is still looking insanely good. The game is still set for its January 12th release and you can pre-order the box set (of both games) here. Thanks to Spyrle for the heads-up.

News: Gundam Unicorn Game Update

There’s a nice update over at 4Gamer for the forthcoming Gundam Unicorn game. Whilst the information and shots are pretty much the same as those shown at Famitsu originally, these are now at HD resolution so you can really see the detail. Though this piece does talk more about the weight of the mobile suits and that they’ll feel “heavy”. Still no word on a price or specific release date as yet, bar sometime next year. We still really want to see some game footage before we get too excited though.

News: Mospeada at Gears Online

Those wonderful people at Gears Online have finally created a lovely section dedicated to Genesis Climber Mospeada. This was a classic 80’s real robot mecha show that was later folded into the Borg-like entity known as Robotech. What’s notable about this show though is that it was created and contained the mecha designs of one Shinji Aramaki. Featuring awesome transforming power armor, this talent would later be used to great effect in direct the Halo Legends anime as well as designing the prototype Mjolinir armor (which we think looks so much cooler than the vanilla armor used by Master Chief). As with all their sections on classic anime at Gears Online, this is no different as it is rife with lush line art and other wonderful production insights.

News: Gundam Extreme Versus First DLC

The first set of DLC for Gundam Extreme Versus has been fully revealed finally. Apart from the GNW-20000 Arche Gundam, which we already new about, we also now have the RX-79BD-1 GM Blue Destiny Unit 1 and its beastly EXAM system in full effect. The latter is probably one of the greater gaming heirlooms in terms of the Gundam mythos, as the Blue Destiny Trilogy on the Saturn was truly wonderful. In addition to the mobile suits, priced at 500 yen each, there will be 8 additional trial missions available for free. All of this DLC will be released on December 22nd.

Update: 4Gamer also has a really nice update about the upcoming DLC.

Following on from the summary breakdown, there’s now a singleplayer video for Armored Core V over at From Software’s YouTube channel, as well as another live recording from Frequency (suitably Armored Core V themed to boot). There’s only one more video breakdown to go before the end of December.

News: Mobile Suit Gundam Online Announced

4Gamer has a nice new piece on a forthcoming online Gundam multiplayer game that will feature brawls with over 100 mobile suits. Entitled Mobile Suit Gundam Online, the game will be released on PC and players will have to pick between either Federation or Zeon units. This alone means that the game will be set resolutely within the UC timeline. Whilst this sounds to be more combat orientated, we’ve already been down this road before (in the form of the ill-fated Universal Century Gundam Online) so we’re a little worried this may not do all that well. What is encouraging, apart from the non-crazy specs, is that a large alpha test is planned with at least 3,000 players in the next week or two. Hopefully this help to assuage many of the issues that are inevitable with games like these prior to its release.

News: MechWarrior Tactical Command Announced

What with the a PC freemium game on the way, it seems that MechWarrior license needs to be violated further. This time in the form of an iOS game called MechWarrior Tactical Command that sounds to partially hark back to the halcyon days of MechCommander. Whilst the trailer below is probably not in-game footage, it looks more “classic” in terms of the designs at least. We’re not sure about the cock rock soundtrack on the trailer though, sounds awfully compensatory. In any case, no word on a specific release date as yet but it will be sometime next year.

News: Gundam Extreme Versus Mobile Suit DLC Revealed

Along with the free DLC in the form of various new Trial Missions, some mobile suits have also been revealed for the PS3 port of Gundam Extreme Versus. Whilst Bandai Namco have attempted to hide the mobile suits in silhouette, it’s not a particularly good tactic. If only for the fact that they are pretty much obviously recognizable. From left to right we have the ZMT-S33S Gottrlatan, GNW-20000 Arche Gundam, PMX-003 The O and ZGMF-X10A Freedom Gundam. There’s no word on whether these will also be free, though this is unlikely. The date listed is December 22nd for their release but these will also been seen as enemies in matches too apparently. If you haven’t bought the game already, you can do so here. We’ll also be reviewing the game soon so keep an eye out for that.
