GG INFINITE: Our New Website 'GG Infinite News' Is Now Live! [STICKY POST]

Our new GG Infinite News website is now live and in service.  There are still functions & services yet to be implemented, but all the mission critical functions are ready.  We will continue to modify our website as we go, so please bear with us in the meantime.  Please come check us out and bookmark us at @ GG INFINITE NEWS!
What is this new website?
GG Infinite News is the official sister website for our GG Infinite Store.  The purpose in to create a clean & easy to use interface for our readers to access their daily hobby fix.  We will be revamping our main store site next. =)

What kind of contents can we expect?
- Consolidated updates from Gundam Guy, Mecha Guy & Kamen Rider GG. All in one location.
- Simple to use interface to access just the content you want to see.
- Team GG's gunpla & figure reviews (work in progress)
- Regular GG Infinite Store updates & promotions (work in progress)
- Members' Gunpla Gallery w/ rating system (work in progress)
....and more exciting stuff to come!

Are you going to close down Gundam Guy?
No, or at least not yet.  We will run all our current blogs (Gundam Guy, Mecha Guy & Kamen Rider GG) in parallel with our new website.  Isn't that redundant?  Yes, but redundancy is actually a good practice when implementing a new website, as we need more time to observe it's performance.  We will maintain all the bloggers sites until the beginning of 2012, when we would review if there is any need for change.  So in the meantime, feel free to continue reading our current blogs and try out our new website. =)

Who's doing the 'Team GG's Gunpla & Figure Reviews'?
Our current Team GG (review contributors) comprise of members: Falldog, PatrickGrade, JosieBeara & Figure Guy.  Our goal is to provide reviews with a bit more substance and most importantly...the reviews will be in english. They will be doing a variety of written & video reviews for the recent releases of Gunplas & Figures.

What type of Special Promotion can we expect?
From time to time, we will be placing info on sales & special coupons under the website 'Store' tab.

What are some exciting stuff to come?
Well, we are currently working on partnering up with another great source to further expand our love for Gundams & hobbies! (A bit vague for now, more on this later).  And also, Mecha Guy (the guy who created Mecha Guy blog, but hardly update it) & I are currently working on something that we hope would please our readers, is still in conceptual phase, so more about that later.  We are also working on building a page on this website, where registered members can submit / post their gunpla works, and we would have a rating system & comment box for folks to show their appreciations.

More updates will follow as our website matures... but for now please take a look around the new site!  If there are any hiccups here & there, it only means that we are still working on it.  =)  And your comments/feedbacks are always welcome.  Thanks everyone!

Gundam Manga by Blame's Nihei, Gundam AGE Manga to Launch

Manga by Biomega/Shidonia no Kishi's Tsutomu Nihei in winter; Gundam AGE in September
The October issue of Kadokawa Shoten's Gundam Ace magazine is announcing on Friday that creator Tsutomu Nihei will launch a Gundam manga series this winter. Nihei created such manga as Blame!, Biomega, and Shidonia no Kishi. Tokyopop published Nihei's 10-volume Blame! manga in North America, while Media Blasters released the net anime adaptation of Blame! in 2005. The Micott and Basara production company (Appleseed films) announced plans for a computer-animated film version of Blame! at the Tokyo International Anime Fair in 2007, but the plans did not come to fruition before Micott and Basara filed for bankruptcy this year.

The October issue of Gundam Ace is also announcing that Hiyon Katsuragi's manga adaptation of the upcoming Mobile Suit Gundam AGE anime will launch in the next issue in September. This manga adaptation is separate from the one that Shogakukan's Corocoro Comic magazine is also serializing.
