Backlog Episode 01: Mobile Suit Gundam

First Impressions: Valvrave the Liberator

Gundam Breaker to get a PS3/Vita demo

Namco Bandai's upcoming PS3/Vita action game, Gundam Breaker, is looking pretty damn neat. Rather than just recycle the same Gundam formula for the nth time, the developers are mixing it up a bit. Literally. Instead of actually controlling...

Vocaloid music invades Super Robot Wars UX's new promo

Not to sound like a broken record again, but Super Robot Wars UX's visuals have yet to impress me. And yet, I always enjoy the comfort of viewing these flashy trailers that Banpresto uses to show off more of the game's roster and...

Let Super Robot Wars UX show you its main characters

Well, most of us can all agree that Super Robot Wars UX has a roster that's both random and a bit underwhelming, but the main deal breaker in most SRW games is the role of the game's original characters. Coming as a slight surpris...

Face Open: CG Gaiking remake gets some overseas support

Kyoryu Change: Kyoryuger transforms into better images

Yes! My theory about the early images of the Kyoryugers were right on the mark. After seeing a better image of them, they don't look as bad as I thought they did. While I am a bit sad that they are going back to spandex suits, I do like the...
