Let’s play a game. You play as a 500 meter giant robot, and you have to defend the world from 15 invaders. Let’s increase the stakes by saying that you must defeat the enemy within 48 hours or Earth gets destroyed. Beat the enemy, and you pay with your life. Lose the fight, and the world gets destroyed, not to mention you dying in the process.
Ask any mecha fan what they think is the most prolific mecha plamo maker is and more often than not, the answer you’ll get is Bandai. Aside from various Macross and Digimon figures and toys, they are also the sole manufacturer of the entire Gundam model kit and figure lineup, which they started back in the early ’80s. The very first releases were non-graded kits of the RX-78-2 and the Zaku II, which featured very minimal detail and poseability and required paint and glue to complete.
Aside from Armored Core and mecha, the members of Raven Republic also have a deep appreciation for competitive fighting games such as Tekken. So of course, the much-awaited console release of Tekken 6 made several of us ecstatic, arch_angel in particular. Check out his passionate review below.
