New Gundam Breaker
HWM Singapore|September 2018

New Gundam Breaker is supposedly a fresh start for the series, an overhaul that would improve the decent, albeit repetitive, gameplay of Gundam Breaker 3.

There is a new campaign mode for those (like me) who felt that Gundam Breaker 3 needed a more cohesive plot. Set in Gunbre High School, the story revolves around Kyosuke and team’s efforts to stop a corrupt student council.

The story is told like a visual novel, mainly to set-up flights at the end of the chapter. These flights are arranged as a duo or a 3-on-3. However, New Gundam Breaker isn’t made up of death matches. Rather, it’s a race to complete missions while scoring the most points.

Points are earned for completing sub-quests that randomly pop-up during a fight. One may involve killing a certain number of AI mechs, while some pit you against a special boss Gundam. The difficulty of the quest dictates how many points you’ll get.

To make things harder, the opposing team will also be vying for the same objectives. That makes it a hectic three-way with you, the enemy, and the quest mobs all fighting in the same space. It’s a radical departure from the stage-by-stage gameplay of previous Gundam Breaker games, and it’s much more fun for it. While the AI are pushovers in the beginning, they start putting up more of a flight as you progress further into the story.

What Should You Know About Cloud Security Solutions?

First, let’s explain exactly what the cloud is, and how it relates to digital security. Intuitively, some people believe that “cloud” storage means your data is being held in the air somehow, but this isn’t really the case. Instead, most cloud applications store data on physical servers, in datacentres around the globe. Your data is stored remotely, and provided to you upon request.
