- Here's an interview with Billy Palmer from Airborne Entertainment, the folks who crafted the Robotech: The New Generation cell phone game that Tommy Yune hypes at every available opportunity. He only very briefly talks about the game, but it's worth a glance.
- From the "where are they now?" files, if you scroll down here you'll find an interview with one Adam Cogan, who was the game designer on Robotech: Battlecry and apparently is now co-writing a psuedo-historical comic series called The Black Coat.

- These folks made a 2 3/4 meter tall SDF-1 Macross out of wood. That's what I call crazy dedication.
- Anime News Network reports that the website for the Megazone 23 adventure game is now open.

Apparently this is setting up an alternate timeline spinning off from Megazone 23 Part 1 -- twenty years pass, and Yui gives her son Hiroto the key to the "Blue Garland" of the game's title after she is attacked (killed in a tearful goodbye, it looks like). B.D.'s still around as the bad guy.
