Oh yeah, I did do that ...

Some of you may have noticed on the sidebar the list of Upcoming Releases -- upcoming videos, toys, games, and comics from the worlds of Robotech and Macross. Among those is an import game for the PS2 called Another Century's Episode 2, which you can see videos of here. It's 3D mecha action game from the people who brought us the Armored Core series of games, featuring a whole raft of robots licensed from a broad cross-section of mecha anime series -- including, of course, the classic VF-1 Valkyries from Macross.

Mind you, it's never coming out here in the English-speaking world -- several of those mecha shows, like Metal Armor Dragonar and Blue Comet SPT Layzner haven't a chance in hell of being released in the States on account of them being too old, and sorting out the English rights to all the remaining series would be a hell of a hassle -- but if you can run import PS2 games, it's probably worth checking out. I have played the first game in the series and didn't much care for it, but then I couldn't even beat more than a single stage of Armored Core 2 after something like five hours, so it's probably not for me.

But still, boy does it look neat ...
