    0. FAQ version
    --------------
    
    - Initial version : 1.0
      Starting FAQ, doing it from the Japanese version so things might be missing..:)
      Help will be greatly appreciated, especially on the story part. Finished the game
      but haven't really put the walkthrough part properly (Sorry..;). Almost get the Chara/
      VA section complete, just missing some minor stuff and their bio-datas. Oh, and the 
      arms section. Haven't describe all the specials. I'll get this done in the next 
      update...^_^...
    
    
    1. Introduction
    ---------------
    
    Hi all!!! Welcome to my FAQ on this great Capcom beat-em-up game called Powered Gear 
    (also known as Armored Warriors in the west). This is my first faq ever so please forgive 
    me if there is a lot of errors here and there.
    
    I decided to do this FAQ since no one has done it yet ;). Also, this is one of the greatest 
    Capcom games that I've ever played (heh, a bit of a robot freak ;). If you played Cyberbots, 
    you must have recognised all (well almost) the VA (Variant Armor) in the game. This is becauce 
    Cyberbots is based on this game (thats my theory since this game came out first). I remembered 
    playing it with my friends in the local arcade and was amazed when the VA joined together..:) 
    I played this game twice on the arcade before they replace it with Double Dragons (SNK one). 
    Now, thanks to the wonderful world of emulation, we all can enjoy this classic game once more.
    
    Well anyway, enough of my rambling and hope you find this faq to be useful and 
    if you have any suggestion or info, please don't hesitate to mail me.

    6. Walkthrough *under construction*
    --------------
    
    Stage 1: Deserted Town
    ----------------------
    This stage is just plain easy. Just keep on moving and whacking the enemies.
    Don't forget to get the D.Drill for Boss Fight at the end.
    
    Boss: Warlock
    -------------
    I found using the drill is very useful. Just keep on drilling and dodging 
    his attacks and you'll toast him in no time. add a bit of Mega Special if 
    you like. After you beat it, He'll run away.
