Well minehappened on the PS 3 version so...

Also I forgot DWG 1 and 2 even had PS 2 versions.

2 having that version is the sole reason I'm able to play it non-emulated in the first place. Because I am not buying a piece of shit PS3 or 4 without backwards compatibility with 2. I am not giving up my Ace Combat for prettier graphics in DWG.

Why do people always talk like getting a new console means the old one self destructs or something? There's nothing stopping you from keeping that PS2 around. Unless Namco puts out a pack of HD remakes.

I also played DWG 2 on PS2 and that friendship system was a real pain in the ass. I don't think I bothered to get more than one or two characters through (almost) all the email quests.

Anyone remember MS Saga: A New Dawn? I picked up a copy years ago but never finished it. It's kinda like what you'd get if you crossed Gundam Breaker with Xenogears.

I hear a lot about MS Saga. Dunno ifit got a Europe release but if it did I might hunt down a PS 2 and get it.

M Aybe a modded one so I can play import games because I wanna check out Federation VS Zeon and Gundam VS Zeta Gundam too

All three of those games have English translations. Granted, the dub for MS Saga is atrocious.

But do they have euro releases? I know Fvs Z did, but Gvs ZG didn't for some reason. I'm hoping MS Saga did so I don'thave to break bank too much for a modded PS 2 and import copies.

Bollocks

Seriously why was Europe screwed out of so many decent Gundam games?

[up]It's not only you, I'm trying to figure out why the heck Japan's execs aren't putting two and two together and realizing how the oh-so-slight similarity between Gundam: Battle Operation II and Titanfall may potentially translate into a ton of sales!

...though, come to think of it, perhaps it's because the game has a ton of F 2 P schemes going on. Generally speaking, the Japanese aren't as vocal when it comes to getting nickel-and-dimed via premiums, and it's already been made clear that you can indeed purchase premium Gundams that cannot be unlocked through normal means.

Would you believe I never fully watched the original Indiana Jones trilogy? I gotta correct that someday.

Was listening to "Over "Quartzer"", and now I want Gundam Extreme Vs 2 to have an opening song like this. Do you guys think there's a chance of AAA doing the opening?

AC "EXVS. Maxi Boost ON" fan appreciation event "Extreme Thanksgiving Day" held on September 29! (Title translated by Google)

EDIT: Linked that page because I figured the event would have new information on Gundam Extreme Vs. 2. After doing some reading I can confirm that, yes, new info on EV2 will be featured in the event.

So apparently, New Gundam Breaker just got released on Steam.

The good news:

  • The "Her name is Super Fumina" DLC mission is free (at least for now).

But, here's the bad news:

  • Based on a video I saw of New Gundam Breaker 's mobile suit list for the PS4 version...it's far from complete. Heck, the only Tallgeese available was Treize's Tallgeese II—no sign of Zechs' Tallgeese I or Tallgeese III! I'm assuming fan-favorite mobile suits will be added in paid DLC packs, but considering how mediocre to bad the sales of the game are, it might be too late for that.
  • And yes, it has Denuvo. (I sense Mighty Kombat getting ready to give Bamco a good kick to the nuts.) That DRM alone turned me off from wanting to get Dragon Quest XI after initially getting intrigued by...*ahem*...fanservice-y pics of Martina/Jade. And now that Denuvo's also in New Gundam Breaker, I might as well "Jack Sparrow" it, since it's only a matter of time and effort before that's cracked too...

How they managed to fuck up New Gundam Breaker really is beyond me.

It's genuinely impressive.

I've heard so much bad about New gundam Breaker.

And THIS is the GB game they chose to localise?

They had a solid formula, then for NGB decided to change it. And almost every single change is objectively terrible. Seriously, in a series about getting parts to customize Gunpla, they absolutely gimp and limit your ability to get new parts. Rather than just getting the parts you grab, you can only carry like... five or so at a time? And have to go to a box and "send" them to your base if you want to keep them.

All this is done for the sake of being able to swap out parts midbattle which literally no one ever would want to do.

Plus, changing the format of fights to always be 2-on-2 with stupid (but seemingly pointless?) objectives is bizarre. I gave up on the game because the Dendrobium seemed impossible to beat in the time limit and was literally the only objective that mattered.

Not to mention the fact it just runs horribly.

Some people hate the Visual Novel story, but after Gundam Versus I was just happy to have a story at all.

From what I've heard online, I'm sorta dreading trying out NGB whenever I get my PS4 back from the friend I'm lending it out to. Pretty much every new feature sounds stupid. It really is a shame that this had to be the entry to come Stateside.

I sorta feel like the series peaked with GB2, which had a very Gundam storyline, even if it was wrapped up as another arcade game-within-a-game. The giant bosses like the Adrasteia or GP-03 were also a nice change of pace. Being able to level parts I liked instead of hoping for a drop and good stars was a great quality of Life change, as was giving almost every mobile suit ok base stats so I wasn't gimped too much by my choice of arms.

The story for 3 felt very generic Sports Story-esque and never really clicked with me even though I ran through it twice. Fighting at the Taipei 101 building was interesting, but that might've been the only high point for me.

I liked GB 3's customization options over GB 2, though yeah, the need to farm for parts rather than upgrade them was dumb.

The one thing I especially disliked was that Misa had to accompany you to the shop every damn time and there was no way to get rid of her. I do not need her commenting on every purchase I make, Bandai.

I thought about trying New Gundam Breaker just to see for myself, but when I heard about only being able to pick up 5 parts at once and having to take them back to a box to keep them, that killed it for me. That and mid-battle part swapping, which, as was stated above, was something nobody asked for.

I really hope Bandai's next installment is Gundam Breaker 4, with a return to the old style... if New's failure doesn't turn out to be a Franchise Killer (can that trope apply to a spin-off series of a larger franchise?)

[up]There is a way to make Misa leave. I think it's either the Square button or the touch pad. I don't remember off the top of my head.
