Well, there hasn’t been much news or any new developments around these here parts, but there is a new Gundam online game that all you rabid and non-rabid fans could try out.
It goes by Mobile Suit Gundam Online
MSGO is a large scale multiplayer third-person shooter set in the universe of Mobile Suit Gundam Specifically, it’s set during the One Year War, but I think there will be expansion of the mobile suit lineup so we have a better selection of mechs to pilot. At the moment, gameplay is a 50v50 battle of Earth Federation Special Forces vs. the Principality of Zeon with match outcome being determined by combination of capture-and-hold objectives combined with base destruction. It’s in the same vein as Mechwarrior online and Hawken, but with a different setting and an interesting commander role similar to the alien commander in Natural Selection.
The open beta launched just in December (2012) and there are plenty of mobile suits you can play as including MSV’s. Head on over to wiki and get yourself acquainted so you can start shooting down some Feddies or Zeeks (or whatever floats your boat).
Era of Chaos: Mekton is still going strong with its latest “patch” going online just last week to add new factions, re-create fleets, approve new mobile suits for use, applying the new Mek Repair System, Full Boost System, redesigning the Luck System and all manner of improvements just in time for the American Union civil war. So make sure to familiarize yourself with the Era of Chaos: Mekton Epicness if you haven’t already.
Oh, and all you Ghost in the Shell fans…
That, my friends, is the trailer for Ghost in the Shell: Arise. It’s a new four-part 50 minute series slated for release in June.
Over and out.
