News: Virtual On Questionnaire Translation

Posted on : 02-03-2011 | By : | In : News

A few days ago, a new online questionnaire popped up on the official Virtual On Force site. Something similar happened shortly after the XBLA release of Oratan 5.66 as well, to which we ended up with this new port of Force (so SEGA do clearly listen to what the fans want when it comes to Virtual On). However, as the questionnaire is all in Japanese some studious individuals have been good enough to do a translation of it. The main point that I think everyone is rooting for is question 3-4; “would you like a new Virtual On?”. Our answer is an emphatic “yes”. Thanks to the peeps at Oratan.com and Schooly D for the heads up, there’s even a forum post all about the questionnaire too. There’s also a thanks page for doing the questionnaire that has some sweet wallpapers.

Courtesy of our good friends at HobbyLink Japan, we’ve been sent the Robot Damashii L-Gaim Mk. 2 toy from Heavy Metal L-Gaim. To help give the toy some context we’ve also included some videos of it from the original anime and a few games it has been featured in over the years at the end of the review.

News: Gundam Musou 3 DLC to feature the Seravee Gundam

Posted on : 21-02-2011 | By : | In : News

On the 23rd of February, another mobile suit will be added to Gundam Musou 3 in the form of another DLC pack. That of the beefy GN-008 Seravee Gundam and its more lithe internal counterpart the GN-009 Seraphim Gundam, from the second season of Gundam 00. The Seravee and Seraphim were also the upgraded versions of the GN-005 Gundam Virtue and GN-004 Gundam Nadleeh respectively. 4Gamer has some good shots of each of the mecha too. In terms of pricing, the DLC will cost 600 yen (PS3) and 480 MSP (360) and will also feature an additional mission. As has been said though, the fact that each of these have been released as separate DLC packs is a bit cheeky really. Hopefully, the Western release will conglomerate the DLC a bit better.

News: Armored Core V Tank Screenshots

The official site for Armored Core V was updated yesterday with two new screenshots showing some of the game’s tank legs on display. Partly due to the reduced size of the ACs themselves, the weapon load-out looks almost disproportionately beefy. Not that we’re complaining, as it makes the new AC’s look suitably kickass. It’s just the more we see of ACV, the more it heralds back to the likes of VOTOMS but in a meaner and tougher sense perhaps. The other screenshot is shown after the jump.

GameSetWatch found a nice new promo video for the upcoming Bangai-O HD Missile Fury that’s set for an XBLA release this year. Still no word on the new online multiplayer setup, which is the main cause of the delay in release, but the game is still looking really fun.

Over at 4Gamer there’s some nice new shots of G.rev’s forthcoming shooter Seisou Kouki Strania. In addition, G.rev have released a brand new HD promo video (shown below) which apart from its awesome soundtrack does show the fact that the player will be able to choose the enemy “Vower” campaign too. Still no word on an exact release date, bar sometime this year, but it will be a global launch via XBLA so that’s something at least.

News: High Moon to develop Transformers Dark of the Moon game

To tie in with the newly announced Bayformers sequel Dark of the Moon, Activision seemed to have finally done something smart with their approach to film tie-ins. Specifically, they’ve hired High Moon back to make the game. Considering that War for Cybertron was pretty decent, especially for a Transformers game, we’re suitably upbeat that this game will actually be playable (even if the mecha designs do suck rather horribly). As expected, the game will operate in an almost identical way to that of War for Cybertron, even down to the online multiplayer setup. However, for those concerned on the turnaround in terms of development cycles on this new game, fear not. High Moon started work on this game whilst War for Cybertron was already in development, so they’ll have enough time to polish the game (something that most film tie-ins rarely get the chance to).

News: Armored Core V Site Update

Posted on : 07-02-2011 | By : | In : News

After all the hubbub of last week over the re-announced Armored Core V, the official site has been suitably renovated. Whilst the site shows the same trailer and set of screenshots revealed last week, it does cast some interesting light on a few other things. For one, on load the site offers an English language option; something that never happened with any of the previous games. This is a massive shift for the series, as it shows that right up front that both From Software and Bandai Namco are pitching this worldwide from the off. The other elements that are worth noting, bar the blog and Twitter feed, is that the coupon campaign (via the rather dire Armored Core Last Raven Portable) is still valid. So for those that bought the Japanese version of the game, the coupon still applies. This means that a week prior to the game’s release you will start receiving DLC codes for exclusive parts.

Still no word on a concrete release date but both GameWatch and 4Gamer have joined the PR fray this week, so now that the cat is out of the bag expect more regular updates.

Update: In line with the obvious global focus for ACV’s PR, there’s now an official Facebook page for the game. Apart from the screenshots, there are some lovely scans of the new AC designs too.

On the 9th February, another mobile suit will be added to the ranks of Gundam Musou 3. Specifically that of the GN-006 Cherudim Gundam from the second season of Gundam 00. The Cherdudim was also the upgraded version of the GN-002 Gundam Dynames, though with a new pilot that happened to share the same name (long story). 4Gamer has some nice shots of the new playable mecha too. In terms of pricing the DLC will cost 600 yen (PS3) and 480 MSP (360).
