Video: Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Operation (PS3)

Today: my first full video! While Isstvan82 and AngeliqueDaemon have been doing the video thing for a while now, and I've posted a few things without narration, this is my first go at it: some menu explanations and gameplay for Gundam Battle Operation, the Free-to-play Gundam game just released on Japanese PSN!

Ogre Battle 80: One Less Deva, One More Artifact, One Less...

Good news is, we don't have to use Tristan to finish the stage. I appreciate this because Tristan is freakin' expensive. Previa's weak against lightning, so a bunch of that will do a nice job. I'm going to send Rauny since it's been a while since she took the stage. She's only a few hundred Goth cheaper than Tristan, but what can I say? I like the idea of using Thundershock until Team Previa Blasts Off Again. Some boots and a Hikari later, and we're on our way there.
I use my Love and Peace on this unit, primarly because Rauny doesn't have any kind of anti-undead abilities. So we recruit some Phantoms and plow through the Necromancer.

Ogre Battle 79: It's Always Three.

The Demons here are high level- they even know Meteor Strike. But Canopus holds them off by virtue of the holy-element weapons his crew's packing. (Also an occasional World card.)

At a hidden Roshifellian Temple in the middle of the map, Gilbert finds Fafnir, a high-power sword of the Lightning element. Handy!

Ogre Battle 78: Holding Down the Fort

...actually I spoke too soon by saying I had everything for the best ending. There's two more things to get, and one of them is an heirloom of the royal family of Zenobia. Fortunately I already snagged the heir, Tristan. Now I just have to find his mother to pick up the loom.

They say she's being held here. Fort Shulamana: last outpost before the Empire proper.

Self-Promotion Mondays: Emergency Backup Podcasters & Last-Minute Schedule Changes

This week on Radio Free Cybertron, JD Church, ExVee, ladywreck and I hold down the fort as our usual host Brian Kilby is off to SavCon, the unofficial Transformers con in Georgia! Seems like all the best TF stuff's unofficial lately...

And in case you missed it over the weekend, AngeliqueDaemon, Isstvan82 and I all had a great time showing off Castlevania: Harmony of Despair instead of starting the next weekend Flail. Marvel at our uncoordinated entry-level play!

Flailthroughs Filler! Castlevania: Harmony of Despair

 Isstvan82 wasn't quite ready to launch into his next weekend Flail, so instead we all sat down for a game of Castlevania: Harmony of Despair. Fun game which I recommend wholeheartedly- especially if my gut feeling turns out to be true and it's the last 2D Castlevania for a while.
