Final boss, 999 Hits, 1 million damage in Project X Zone 2. Also a mini review of the game while we're at it. This is an experimental piece we did for New Game Plus a while back. Let us know how we did and if you'd like to see more content like this.

Only just found this little gem. Yoshiyuki Tomino's own Gundam concept design, brought to life by veteran toy designer and illustrator Tsuyoshi Nonaka.

Musou Stars just got a website update and release date. 2nd March 2017 will see Tecmo Koei's new Warriors series game featuring characters from a bunch of their franchises. The new info on the site mentions that you can assemble a team of up to 5 characters in-game, and each character will have 3 Hero Skills, which will make use of game mechanics from the series they are from. Also confirmed are some furry original characters. Click here

So there are a lot of images regarding Marvel vs Capcom 4 going around and while the general consensus is that they are fake there is still a lot of anticipation in the air and a very confident contingent of the community who believe it will be announced soon regardless. Obviously we here at TOG have always had a fondness for the game even if none of us ever got above casual scrub shenanigans. We'd love to see which DMC character they make broken next.

So a proper trailer and it seems that more than the 'whitewashing' concern that I suppose really does have a pretty good case to be argued on this project [I mean, they even change the colour of her body suit] I think the very clear shift away from the basic idea of the Major being an active shell towards a more Robocop style 'gotta get muh memories back' sort of thing could be enough alone to really make you question the point of the movie if you haven't yet. Then again, determining what the actual point of the GitS manga was is... tricky. It's probably somewhere there in the footnotes.

So after steaming the game on TOG, Trey decided to buy it and play it too much. After finally laming out the end bosses over and over he got the platinum. As a HD remake I find it a kind of interesting mix. Not only does it include the full original format of the game, albeit with updated graphics, it also has a whole new mode that is basically just a wacky remix mechanically of the original. The changes made really revolutionise the game, making it feel completely new and changing the genre in a lot of senses. It is no longer an occasionally agonising conservation exercise about maximising stamina usage, it is now a hack and slash combo exhibition especially when on the first playthrough. Unfortunately the game takes far too long to curve its difficult to match this more fluid battle style, meaning that as you power up your characters you become increasingly more overpowered as the moves just aren't scaled to the ease you can now exploit them and as such even on Hard the game just isn't ever a challenge and in a lot of senses becomes a chore. What limited exposure I had to the xtra mode or whatever really did seem interesting but I'm so far in I sort of lost interest entirely in the game. That said considering the game is frequently down to as low as $30 or $40AUD in sales I really can't see a reason not to get it when you do find it cheap because there is just so much charm to the game and so long as you aren't stupid like me and pace your playthrough, maybe use it to break up games where you put in more effort and want to dial it back a little, it should prove an overall positive experience. It's also an easy Platinum, like sort of silly easy, you'll almost accidentally get it just beating the game. I know that doesn't matter to everyone but I need all the e-peen I can get, obviously. Good experience overall, sort of burned me out a little but don't regret it at all. Also Mercedes got rekt, holy shit. Secret ending don't take the sting out of that.

After a long hiatus from streaming, we've decided to have a little reunion. So it's going to be King of Fighters XIV tomorrow, and whatever other games we feel like putting on since we all suck at KOF. However, you'll see why this latest installment in the series strikes a chord with so many older gamers. It's truly a game made for its fans.

Crossbone Gundam DUST, the next title in the Crossbone Gundam manga series will start running in September issue of Gundam Ace. It will be set 16 years after Crossbone Gundam Ghost. After the failure of Zanscare and weakening of the Federation, UC goes into a warring states period. Expect a lot of Sengoku references. The key MS designs of this era are mostly "Restore units" utlising parts based on previous designs through the ages.(*cough* UC build fighters *cough*) The main character, Ash King uses a unit called the Anchor, a custom unit created with a "mixing build".(Romanisations may not be accurate) In the tradition of Crossbone, Gundam Ace will also hold yet another original mech design competition, with winners to be showcased in the new series. To be honest, I'm not really that hyped for it, because despite having a couple of really cool ideas, Crossbone's story hasn't really been that great since Tomino stopped being involved. Hasegawa sensei's fight scenes are always very creative though, which will be one of the strong points of this series. Source: Click here
