Dynasty Warriors Gundam 2

I always read that this was a pretty bad game: repetitive (as all Dynasty Warrior games are), bad presentation (graphics and voice actors), and just not a whole lot of unique content. Well, I was too curious to just try it out so I found a cheap PS3 copy on Ebay.

If I didn't love Gundam, then yeah, this game would kind of suck. But, since I do, it's amazing to see 60+ different mobile suits in action with lot's of different special attacks/animations. The gameplay is pretty grindy, just keep on attacking hordes of Zakus or other grunt mobile suits until you win. There's a pretty wide range of mobile suits, ending at the Seed Destiny series (really hope they make a third game just to have Unicorn mobile suits). Haven't tried too many different characters yet, but Nu Gundam is my favorite so far (might just have to get the MG, bad proportions and all!) as it has crazy funnel attacks, i.e. funnel pyramid.

I can see this game getting old quickly, but it was definitely worth the $20. Anyone else play it? Seems like a perfect game for a Gundam fan (except for the horrible English voice acting)

New Page: Ma Tools

Haven't updated in a while! Well, I've been working on a "My Tools" page (which you can now check out from the row of links up there). Occasionally people have asked about some of the paints or methods I use, so I thought I would just dedicate a page to that stuff. Probably went overboard, not sure if anyones quite interested in it, but check it out if you'd like! I put a table of contents with links to jump down to their respective parts for easy access.

I also updated my Future Projects page with a couple of photos, nothing big. Sinanju's still coming along, but I might take a break to finish up decals on my Stamen kit, we'll see! Haven't done much Gunpla in the past couple of days as I've been playing Heavy Rain (on PS3). Highly recommended, play it if you have a chance! It's probably one of my favorite games (although I suppose it's actually an interactive drama).
