The Japanese version of Dungeon Fighter has an interesting collaboration going on with Sword Art Online. The event started last month, I totally forgot about it! If you're interested enough to roleplay some SAO in Arad Senki (DnF) then go on ahead and try out the JP version. However, I should let you know that Japanese version has an IP block. Perhaps some of you are already playing the other versions of the game since the English version just poofed away.
Blade & Soul China continues to grow every day that they are now totalling 165 servers. Tencent had to disable character creation on certain servers to prevent players from experiencing five to six hour long login queues. The Chinese version proved to be very successful. There would be a lot more servers than 165 if there wasn't compatibility issue with the Windows 8 users.
Hello friends! I have made some serious changes to my site today, even though most of you may not notice. I did a lot of Ninja'ing and optimized it by deleting a lot of content. You can find out most of the details below. I was actually thinking of taking a break due to the stress of my site going down often lately among other things, but I figured I would burn some features and keep walking forward instead of sleeping!
Square-Enix just released Occult Maiden for the iOS today, which offers an Anime like story with voice overs and dice rolling features for exploration. The game also contains some TCG mechanics for equipment and boss battles. I guess, it's not that unique when you have played so many TCG's. The game is somewhat fully voiced or close to it. I played a little bit of the game, added some of my own screenshots below. As you can see, it doesn't fully support retina display which makes resolution geeks cranky. The game is soso, the girls will often call you "Onii~chan" despite your gender, obviously awkward if you're a girl. Anyway, I added the trailers and info below so enjoy!
Blade & Soul Korea finally got a new content update today featuring a new end game dungeon! The latest content looks a bit similar to the Argon theme of Tera Online or more simply more Tron'ish? Oddly enough, the outfits look very good that I might re-subscribe another month just to experience the new content. It's been a couple of years now and I always find myself coming back to playing this game. Check out the new looking area and black leather tights outfit below.
The first English version of Kindom Under Fire II has now been confirmed to be published by MMOGAsia of Malaysia and & Singapore. I will try to squeeze out the first closed beta release date and poke around asking if it has an IP block. Meanwhile kill sometime with the official press release below, latest trailers, and a couple images of the translated client right after the cut.
Knights of Glory was just released on the popular Japanese Mobage platform. This was one of those Mobage titles that I was really looking forward to sinking a lot of time in, but after finding out that it's not on a separate Mobage application. I ended up losing hope, I still played and tried the game out for a little bit. The graphics look really good and very cute! The game is currently having some sound issues or just like most Mobage games, it will have limited music and sound. It's such a shame, this game would have been really good. I've added a short guide on how to play on your browser or phone, but you will need to understand a bit of Japanese.
Blade & Soul Online China just increased their server count from 19 to 33! The Chinese version seems to be extremely popular. Do keep in mind, that Blade & Soul China is still in a Closed Beta testing phase where data carries over to launch. Even as of today, a lot of players are still trying to get their hands on the Chinese version. I wonder how many servers will they add once it hits Open Beta? According to Aspenache, the Open Beta test is scheduled to start during the 1st or 2nd week of December. Just wait a little bit longer.
The 3rd Lightning Strikes FATE event reminded me of previous adventures in The Binding Coil of Bahamut, we had to defeat a notorious Dreadnought for this FATE battle. After successfully defeating the boss, I headed back town to collect my boots and to my surprise, I met Lightning herself in a cutscene shown below. The final chapter will be available in a few days and I am hoping that it will be a lot more challenging than this one. Looking back at the trailer shown below, the boss looks really cool. I'm definitely looking forward to Chapter 4 of Light Strikes.
