Posted in Video Games with tags , , , , on February 5, 2011 by Pirate

Namco Bandai announced on their Facebook page that Gundam Musou 3 (Known in America as Dynasty Warriors: Gundam 3) will be heading to North America. Gundam Musou 3 is the third game in the Gundam Musou beat ’em uo video game series.

The first game was released in Japan on March 2007 for the PS3, PS2, and Xbox 360. The second game was released in Japan on December 18, 2008 for the PS2, PS3, and Xbox 360. Both games were later released in North America.

This game was released in Japan on December 16, 2010 for the PS3 and Xbox 360, and will be released in North America this summer.

As a fan of the game series, I am pretty pleased by this turn of events. I will be buying!

Nintendo 3DS video games that I plan on buying

Posted in Video Games with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 14, 2011 by Pirate

With the Nintendo 3DS supposedly being released in North America around March or April, I figured that I would tell you guys the games announced for the console that I want and why.

Batman 3DS. Yes, there is a Batman game announced for the 3DS. Don’t believe me? Search around the web, and you should find it. I heard that the Batman games for the PS3 are really good, so I think that a Batman game for the 3DS may just have potential.

BlazBlue: Continuum Shift II. I have always admired the BlazBlue series for its fast, anime-style gameplay. I never got this game, but as a fan of both fighting games and anime, this is a must-buy title for me when it is released in 2011.

Dead or Alive: Dimensions. I am addmittedly not a fan of the DoA series (although I am planning on buying one for the PS2) but this game’s trailer looked really awesome, and the 3D really helps the game. Also, it has a guest star from Ninja Gaiden. Cool.

Dynasty Warriors: Chronicle. Well, I am a fan of the Dynasty series, and so far, there seems no reason for me not to buy the game, so i’ll probably at least give it a rent.

Dragon Ball. So far, there is nothing known about this game at all, but like above, so far there is no reason for me NOT to get the game. So…

Gundam: The 3D Battle. I hope this game is licensed. I am a fan of all Gundam video games, but none for the DS were licensed. If this one is licensed, I’ll have to get it. All that sweet, 3D mecha action. In space. With politics. OH YEAH!

Kid Icarus: Uprising. Okay, the gameplay looks sweet, the graphics look extraordinary for a small console, you can fly and fight againts hordes of demons, and more than one person has called this game the best 3DS game yet. Of course I am getting this!

Kingdom Hearts 3D. Kingdom Hearts has become one of my favorite video game series ever, so this game is automaticlly a must-buy. Also, no one seems to know when this game takes place, adding mystery to it.

The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. I loved Wind Waker. I really, really enjoyed that game. And this game inspired it. Also, its a classic and everyone calls it the best Legend of Zelda game ever. So, I need to get it.

Mega Man Legends 3. I never played the first two, but I heard they were great. Besides, I always enjoy Mega Man games, and this being a 3D platformer Mega Man game helps it all the more.

Mario Kart 3DS. This is only a maybe. I was never crazy about the Mario Kart series, ut if this one gets good reviews, than I guess I may get it.

Naruto 3DS. I love the Naruto franchise. ’nuff said, I think. Also, in 3D.

Marvel Super Hero Squad: The Infinity Gauntlet. This game is also for normal DS, but yeah, I think I’ll wait for 3DS. Plus, I enjoyed Marvel Ultimate Alliance, and fans call this game MUA junior, so…

Paper Mario 3DS. Well, I enjoyed games 2 and 3 of Paper Mario, so if this a remake of the first one, I’ll get it. Even if it isn’t, I’ll get it.

Samurai Warriors: Chronicle. This game is the latest in another beat ’em up series that I like, so I’ll get it, if not just cause its a beat ’em up.

Star Fox 64 3DS. As a fan of Star Fox who has never played 64, I owe it to myself to get this flight/sci-fi remake of a classic game.

Yu-Gi-Oh 3DS. Yes, they announced a 3DS Yu-Gi-Oh game. I may get it, may not.

Anyway, that is my list. Thoughts?

Today, Bandai announced that they had licensed two more anime: Turn A Gundam and Tales of the Abyss. This announcement made many fans happy.

Turn A Gundam is yet another anime in the Gundam franchise. In Japan, it aired from April 1999 to April 2000 with 50 episodes. It was animted by Sunrise, who has animated pretty much every single Gundam anime. It spawned three manga series, two of them in 1999, and the third in 2004. It also made two anime films, both in 2002.

As of today, no one has licensed any of the manga or anime films. No one had licensed the anime before Bandai.

Tales of the Abyss is a fantasy anime based is based on the Namco Bandai video game for the PS2. The game came out in Japan on 2005, and in the US the next year. The anime series ran in Japan from October 2008 to March 2009 with 26 episodes. It was also animated by Sunrise. It also spawned three manga.

The game has been released in North America, but none of the manga have been licensed yet.
