In other giant robot news, there is a new Macross game out for the PSP. You that you want it.
And yes, my name is Ebrahim and I have an unhealthy love of giant robots.

When the marketing machine goes mad there really is only one response .
The release deluge is gearing up for the holiday season and though I agree with the sentiment I can't say that I'm a fan of the genre choice .
I have avoided delving too deeply into Dead Space. My first impression is that it may be like Doom 3 which would be a pity. I hope it's more like Event Horizon rather than anything else.
In giant robot news, there is a new Macross game for the PSP. And it's true that most Macross games have been dreadful, I still can't resist hoping that this one is different. The PSP controls do not lend themselves to quick response action games but then again they did a decent job with God of War, so maybe there is hope. The catch of course is that it's only available in Japan.

My love for giant robots started with watching Robotech after school. From that time I wanted to control a giant robot. So it was a natural progression to go from Robotech to MechWarrior . I can recall watching the MechWarrior 2 trailer over and over on my buddy's Pentium 1, my 486 was not up to the task. We marvelled over the action sequence even though the trailer was only about 1 minute long.
When I played MechWarrior 2 it was not at all like Robotech, I was not in control of a high speed Mech, it was more like controlling a tank which was able to do rocket jumps. Since I first started playing the MechWarrior games I have been on the lookout for a Mech game that would fill the gap.
Even the Robotech licensed games were not up to the task because they were generally very poorly executed.
I had a look at Armored Core on the Xbox and was not impressed. Armored Core 4 is out on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and I am keen to take a look at it. Although I don't hold much hope that it can fulfill the massive expectations created in my Mech fantasy world.
