PSP - SD Gundam G Generation World (Released Today, Price: 6090 Yen)
So I got the PSP's version of the latest SD Gundam G Generation World video game. I didn't get the collector edition....because it is just not worth it. And the main point of getting this game is to play it, not the special box art or booklet.
So I fired up my PSP and just do a quick gamplay just to see how it fairs against the previous G Generation game for the PSP. Hugh difference.... it is graphically superior to it's prodecessor in every way, which is a good thing. I remembered the last time around, each unit on the game map was represented by ugly blue image of the mobile suit (now it is fully colored & easy to identity). I didn't get very far with my first game, since I really don't have time for it right now... but so far my short experience with the game is not bad.
With Famitsu giving this game a score of 32 (Wii version: 33)... which is not bad at all, I look forward to playing further this weekend.....that is if I am not distracted with my other current favs... PS3 Marvel vs. Capcom & PSP Tactics Orge. =P
Looking forward to playing MS from the SD Gundam Sangokuden series & scenarios from the Gundam UC sereis. =)
Pre-Orders will be fulfilled next week, and item will be instock on Mar.4th
My early impression is that the finsihed kit look smaller than I had imagined it to be, but still it is one heck of a nice desktop display.
Another little thing that I noticed was that the hand holding the beam scythe comes in two pieces to allow easy access to attach/detach the beam scythe from the hand. This is very useful for those who plan to paint the kit and don't have to worry about too much paint scratch on the hand when swapping in & out the beam scythe. However, the beam scythe is quite heavy, so the hand piece does come off (falls off) a bit too easily. It came off 3 times when I try to pose the arm.
The wings are quite sturdy, and can stay in open and close position quite well. Not as flimsy as I had previously thought. An awesome kit all around.
