Wanna play a game of MSG Senjou no Kizuna Portable (機動戦士ガンダム 戦場の絆) on the internet?

Ever since I'd purchased MSG Senjou no Kizuna Portable, I've been itching to play a 4 vs. 4 game with players around the world? And now I can with Xlink Kai.

Xlink Kai is a global gaming network being able to bridge together gamers on Xbox, PS2, PSP, etc..into one integrated community. Xlink Kai is a software running on your PC or Mac that allows gamers to play system-link games online for free.

So here are the requirement in order to play PSP - Senjou no Kizuna Portable online:

- MSG Senjou no Kizuna Portable game

(Check Xlink Kai offical website for compatibility check)

Once you have everything installed. All you need is to get your PSP connected to your home internet. Of course I am simplifying the steps here, but you can check out all the details at
Start up your Xlink Kai user interface, click on PSP arena. As you can see in the image below, there's a lot of gamers at the PSP arena.

Then select the genre of game you want to play.... Senjou no Kizuna Portable is listed as an Action Game. As you can see below, there are 24 players currently in the game arena.

The ZZ Gundam Masterpiece (book) went on sale this past March, and is a publication that belongs to the Masterpiece series. Although I have no idea how long the series has been running, but it is designed to immerse fans into the Gundam world, to describe in great details about the technical aspect of the mobile suit design & weaponry as if they were real.

Although details are sparse, but it seems the book is quite popular in Japan. The ZZ Gundam Masterpiece went on sale late March at a price of $2,500 Yen.

The MG Sinanju's Rocket Bazooka was delivered to my home today.

I had purchased this item from a fellow Gundam blogger "An American Salaryman in Tokyo" (from Japan). I was so excited when I saw the package on the front step of my home this morning.

To celebrate the occasion, I put on my favorite T-shirt... SIEG ZEON!!!!

The package came with both the 8th edition of the Gundam UC novel, as well as the rocket bazooka kit.
The bazooka has now been placed into queue in the order of gunpla(s) that I plan to build soon.
