These are the three games in Level-5's Guild02

6:30 PM on 02.21.2013 // Tony Ponce

Will be broken apart as eShop releases throughout March

Three of the four titles from Level-5's 3DS game jam Guild01 made it to the eShop out West. Liberation Maiden, Aero Porter, and Crimson Shroud were all bizarre but solid experiences, and I'm extremely grateful that they were given a chance on our shores. I hope the same arrangement is made for the the games of Guild02, due next month.

Though the original received a retail release in Japan, Level-5 is going to take the Western route and break Guild02's mini-games apart into eShop downloads. And instead of four games, there are only three: Uchuusen Damurei-go ("Spaceship Damurei"), Mushikera Sensha ("Insect Tank"), and Kaiju ga Deru Kinyoubi ("Monsters Come Out on Friday").

Spaceship Damurei is suspense adventure by Kazuya Asano and Takemaru Abiko. Suffering amnesia, you wander a spaceship seeking an escape, but you, the player, are as much in the dark as your avatar, given no instructions on what to do or where to go. Insect Tank is a survival action game by Keiji Inafune in which you customize a super tiny tank to battle swarms of insects. But the most interesting game of the lot is Kazu Ayabe's Monsters Come Out on Friday, a heartwarming tale of a boy who happens to live in a town where giant Toho-like beasts fight on a regular basis.

Monsters Come Out on Friday releases first on March 13, Insect Tank on March 19, and Spaceship Damurei on March 27. They'll each cost ¥800 (~$8.59).

MGS Online Day 3. I have 3 character up to level 10 now, one in each class. They're all pretty handy, but I do miss the scout's mark speed the most on other classes.

The SW: Battlefront is pretty and has great sound design, but the gameplay is so shallow and has seemingly no depth! If the full game is like this I will be disappointed.

Dear Playboy: Love your video game coverage, but how about you start making some topless unboxing videos? Seeing someone unwrap a copy of Call of Duty is boring. Seeing a topless Playmate unwrap a copy of anything is awesome!

In happier news, Level-5 is already talking Yo-Kai Watch 2's Western release, and better/worse yet, they're considering amiibo support for the series! And hey, if they can't get Jibanyan into Smash, that'd be one way to get the West's attention.

I drank a glass of Ovaltine for the first time in years today. It was nice. Like drinking a glass of my childhood, complete with ignorance, embarrassing angst, tears (so many tears) and night terrors. Ah, the good 'ol days.

[img][/img] This is just depressing. Digital classics on consoles are such a great idea, but it's like not a single company wants to really go through with it.

I recently beat Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow again, but this time I played on Hard mode from scratch. Outside of dying a few times due to me being an idiot, and enemies hitting harder, it was actually easy. Like really easy.

Today I replated bacteria that I made take up a plamid hopefully stitched onto the genes generatlight. Taken from other dead bacteria and put into a non glowing species, to make it glow. Fucking microbiology is the best.

It seems fairy farts are a fragrance, a soap, incense, a vaping liquid and a kind of nail polish. I'm clearly in the wrong line of work and need to eat more chili.

"You gave the Lost Soul a big smile, like you remember she likes to do... For some reason she sort of wants to smile back..." I'm not crying. Not one bit.

Just tried 'The Last Of Us' on PSNow Trial, only to be told... 'Something went wrong. Try again.' Game-appropriate error message or quickie plot-summary?

I hate when people say crap like "I admit that [thing] in games is problematic, but I still enjoy it" because it's an underhanded way of contradicting your own views while convincing yourself that you aren't a hypocrite.

Well shit. I knew I was more than likely going to enjoy Star Wars Battlefront (cause you know, giant Star Wars nerd and all) but holy cow, the beta is fucking great! I need the full game like, now.

Yay, I got off of work early and may have Friday off! I have a sinking feeling I'm going to work 10 hours on Saturday as a result, though :/ We ran out of stuff to make stuff with so they must ship us stuff so we can ship stuff.
