Can You Play With These Gamer Girls?

Many people have sexual fantasies with sexy and beautiful women in the world including models, actresses, singers and even fictional characters. It is believed that gamers can not refuse the sexual attraction when consoles combine a girl with little clothing.

Blade & Soul: 'The Soul Party' Feedback

Following the great surprise that Blade & Soul brought to players at this year's G-Star, NCsoft held a non-public game test party called "The Soul Party" last week for their high-level members, and surprisingly made public a brand-new game version different from the one at G-Star 2010. The version presented in the Party features more gorgeous and saturated graphics when compared to the early one, and makes players no more restricted to starting areas but able to adventure around a wider gaming world.

Cabal Monster Defense List

Important note:

Something important to know before you read is that this is a list for defenses at level 180. For each level you are below 180, the monster will gain +1 defense. Thus if you are a 160 looking at this, you must add 20 defense to each name on the list to determine how it will be against your char.

How To Top Up Your Aika Global Account

A lot of Filipino Aika Global players still do not know how to top up their Aika Global accounts. Most of us are accustomed to buying game cards or purchasing the required game cash through Load Central. Aika Global uses a similar system, except that it takes a lot of getting used to.

Hopefully we'll see Aika Global top-up cards when the game goes commercial.

Sorry Eminem, But Life is A Nintendo Game

Life is a video game. Unfortunately, this one doesn't have any walkthroughs.

It's an RPG and you're the hero. There are a variety of skills for you to learn, but since you only have a limited number of slots, you have to choose carefully which ones you're going to get. All of those skills are essential but whichever you pick, they will all be useful to you. It will depend on how, when and where you will apply those skills in order to win your every battle.

Cabal Episode 5: Mercenaries Discussed

The update takes its title from their existence, and it is clear that EST sees them as an important addition to the game. Mercenaries come in three basic types: Covenant, Faith, and Dazzlement. Each of those three types have different Mercenaries in them, and each specific Mercenary can come in 4 levels, from Basic, Rare, Epic and Unique, and each higher grade improves the abilities of the Mercenary.

Cabal Episode 5 Mercenaries First Impression

These are all first impressions, of course, so expect more blogs in the near future with much more detailed information. Let us start with the Mercenaries. Handling and obtaining them seems more complex than I first expected, although I have not spent too much time with the various different Mercenaries yet. I suspect that there might be a fair amount of questions about them once the update goes live, so I would recommend that the Advisors, and more civic-minded members of the community, try to get as much information as possible to help those who has no idea that we even have a forum to find help.

Aika Repeatable Quests

One good thing to take advantage of when you reach the grinding level of 49 in Aika Online is the Repeatable Quests. These quests have a level cap as to when you can continue repeat the quests. These quests usually offer less exp than normal and main quests. However you should take advantage of repeatable quests by doing them at the same time as normal and main quests because the quests usually overlap.

Aika Grinding Guide

So have to train all the way from lv 49 to lv 51?!

Unfortunately, yes. There are no more quests when you reach Level 49 until 51. To save yourself from the misery, here's a few tips and tricks.

Important Notes:

# Many of these solo locations are great places for parties if soloing isn't your thing.
# I avoided ranged mobs as much as possible because I felt they took too long to gather for my Area of Effect skill.
# I added after each level where quests appear in case you don't wish to grind at certain locations till you get quests there.
# I used a double exp mark from levels 53 to 60 over fifty percent of the time played.
# I leveled mostly in Alethius from 50-52 (5 Exp Relics = 50% More Experience).
# Quests give around 15-20% (including kills) of your exp every level till level 58. After level 58, there are no more quests. From levels 58-60, it's a complete grind.
# I didn't do any of the guild quests because I felt they were a waste of money and time.

Aika Mirza Air Garden Guide

“In the uppermost reaches of the sky lies a floating island once inhabited by the oldest and wisest of the Mirzas. It was said that only Mirzas who live to be 120 years or older were allowed to reside in the beautiful city built atop that mystic land. There, the inhabitants were to live the rest of their lives in peace and serenity.

Eventually though, the new Sahrar Ungor struck a deal with the Zereca in order to invade the once peaceful and heavenly island. With their ruthlessness, the evil forces of the Zereca were able to overtake the Air Garden and slaughter its former inhabitants. Thus, the ancient paradise of the wise Mirza has been turned into just another blood-soaked fortress of war.”

~Ancient Mirzan History

Woes of A Healer

It's strange how, despite knowing the trials and tribulations of rolling a healer or a healing capable class, I constantly do so in many of the MMORPGs that I play. Though I enjoy playing a healer class, I nearly always have an equal amount of QQ while playing, sometimes to the point of just giving up playing that character altogether. It's as if I never learn my lesson. I've tried a few times to get my head around why this is the case, and I'd like to think that I'm not the only person who's encountered this. Why do we roll healers even though we know the troubles we'll be going through?

According to him, the current business model is the biggest reason for online games' stagnation.

10 Kinds of People You Meet in XBox Live

A couple of decades ago, video games were much more solitary pursuits than they are today. Home console units meant you played by yourself or with a few friends as you passed a controller around or joined forces for a two-player game. Even with the original incarnation of the Xbox, the only way to link a large group of players was with a LAN party in someone's dorm. But thanks to Xbox Live and other online services, you can play with people anywhere in the world. This does, though, have some downsides: some of these people are among the most obnoxious humans you could hope to meet, and their anonymity only makes them bolder. Consider this list a guide to the various players you'll meet online. Forewarned is forearmed.

Blade and Soul: No Grind, Different Storyline for Each Server

Aion's always complained by players about its repetitive quests and heavy grind. What about Blade & Soul? In the G-Star 2010 premiere Q&A with the game's Producer Bae Jae-Hyun and Lead Designer Hwang Sung-Jin, Korean media put forward this concern to the developers. Bae Jae Hyun promises that Blade & Soul isn't that kind of game that asks you to kill 10 monsters and then 15 another kind of monsters, instead, there will be lots of stories from the very beginning. Besides, he mentions that different servers and continents will enjoy different scenarios. Well, that's a nice idea.

Cabal 2 Showcased in G-Star 2010

Last month ESTsoft teased their new project Cabal 2 which will be powered by CryEngine 3. Today the Korea-based company showcased the game to public in G-Star 2010. The developer only shows two Cabal 2 videos, a promotional trailer and a terrain video. That's to say, the game is still in early stage.

Blade and Soul Gameplay Trailer

At the press conference held on Nov. 16, Korea-based game tycoon NCsoft released a G-Star-2010-orietned promotional video for its next-gen blockbuster Blade & Soul, and demonstrated the gameplay on the spot as well. Only two videos related to Blade & Soul have been released since the game was made public two and a half years ago, but this still couldn't stop players from showing great enthusiasm in it. In this respect, the development team expressed their sincere apologies for those waiting for the game eagerly and faithfully, and wished to show their thanks for players' permanent support through the promotional video and gameplay demonstration.

Blade and Soul Adds Assassin Class

Prior to G-Star 2010, NCsoft released the exciting game info for its fourth MMO blockbuster Blade & Soul at 'NCsoft G-Star Premiere', with the basic gaming controls and the new class "Assassin" unveiled.

Blade and Soul: Featured Systems

With the 3 eye-catching videos unveiled, NCsoft's next-gen MMO Blade & Soul has started its G-Star 2010 journey officially. It is easy to see many new achievement of Blade & Soul from the videos.

Cardmon Hero CBT Review

CardMon Hero is a 3D Fantasy MMORPG with TCG (trading card game) elements. Players command their primary character in battle but are aided by magical cards. CardMon Hero is still an action packed game, the card system just adds an original twist to traditional MMORPG combat.

Pet systems have been popular in MMOs, particularly free-to-play MMORPGs, for a long time. They let players fight alongside a faithful companion that they can control, and that will never ditch them in the middle of a battle or fight over loot. CardMon Hero – a game initially to be published by Uforia as Camon Hero, and now being published globally by Redbana/T3Fun as CardMon Hero – appeals to that sense of having constant companions with a unique summoning system, utilizing cards for both summoning a friend to join you in combat and in managing skills. This unique take on a classic MMORPG combat system has its quirks, making it stand out from similar MMOs like Soul Master.

Porta Inferno: In A Nutshell

Porta Inferno itself is a dark, gloomy map, reminiscent of the Volcanic Citadel. There is a lot of what appears to be once-grand architecture, fallen into ruin, and the map switches between rough rock and smooth walkways towards the center, before winding through narrow paths towards the last two bosses. In terms of the lore of CABAL Porta Inferno is one version of Hell itself, and the mobs reflect this. Demons, fallen souls, and other horrors lurk in shadows, while skeletal dragons soar overhead. The bosses are... interesting, especially the really big last boss. Best to take a couple of friends with you if you feel like going for a couple of rounds with Minisha.

Journeying through Porta Inferno Map

Cabal PH only has two weeks more to go to brace themselves for the new patch, Episode IV: Porta Inferno. The latest patch features what many believe is the best addition to the game in a long time, the Porta Inferno Map.

A new map serves as every player's new playground, where their skills, armors and weapons will be tested against the brash monsters always ready to pounce on them. Now let's take a trip to the dark side of Hell.

Cabal's New Transcender Skills

Today's update is all about the new skills, and I have included every level of every skill, not including the 4 new buff skills (If needed I can provide these as well, but I am fairly sure these 4 skills will either be on level 20 or not trained at all). So, as you might imagine, the blog update is a bit image-heavy and it might take a while to scroll all the way to the bottom. To compensate for that there will not be too much text - just for today, of course.

So, let us get started.

September 21, 2010

Cabal's New Upgrading System

Upgrading simply by clicking on a core, then clicking on the item you wish to upgrade, is now a thing of the past. Upgrading items via any Core Alchemist has likewise gone the way of the dinosaurs, visible only in the museum of old screenshots. (Well, I am not talking about force core upgrades, now - only the +8 to +12 item level upgrades can be done anywhere. To fill the item slot you still need to visit your friendly local Alchemist.) The upgrading process now has a completely new, separate interface, that is accessible either via right-clicking on a core, or by clicking on the small button on the lower left side of your personal inventory screen.

Aika Castle Siege

Castle Siege is a PvP (player versus player) feature unique to Aika where the guilds and guild alliances within a nation compete in a bloody campaign to secure the Lakian Fortress — the ultimate national seat of power. Every week, all five nations will each be host to a potential military revolution, where the Lord Marshal and his ruling regime must defend the Fortress against an onslaught of would-be usurper guilds and guild alliances. As the Fortress is very heavily fortified and the incumbent administration is given large status and damage bonuses, it is no simple task for the invaders to achieve victory within the designated time limit.

Aika Sniper Skill Guide

The rifleman is a long ranged class in Aika that has one of the higher defense rating, and hp amounts. This lets you take more damage than average, and lets you get out of some sticky situations. It also has remarkable range which is useful since it gets you outside AOE range for bosses, and lets you attack from farther range in PvP. The damage is also very respectable in single target fights. Personally I have not lost a single one on one fight as long as I kept my head on straight. The one time I did lose I tried to be cute and let a warrior in to close while at half health. That said your only real enemies are warriors. Everything else is a free kill one on one. Just get the first attack in on a warrior and you will always win.

Radiant Hall Dungeon Guide

The newest Cabal dungeon, Radiant Hall, already made it's way to the game servers yesterday with the implementation of the Secrets of the Radiant Hall patch.

Falling In Love With Aika Online

AIKA Online is a MMORPG that is set in the past. Boasting awesome graphics for a MMORPG, AIKA Online features some of the most innovative game play elements that I’ve ever see in any MMORPG that I’ve ever played.

Featuring some intensive PvP and even a daughter system, what more can be wanted from such a game?

Of course, most seasoned MMORPG player would know that AIKA Online hails from the GREAT SOUTH KOREA, where most of the MMORPGs we play today started off from there. Most seasoned MMORPG player would also know that any MMO games from Korea would probably mean hours of mindless grinding just to get the level you want.

Cabal Daily Quests

Right, now that we have that out of the way let's get down to the good stuff, for those of you still with me. As you should know by this point in time you will have the opportunity to complete Daily Quests with the next update. These are quests that you will be able to take only once per day, and they reset on midnight server time. They come in several different categories, and you are able to take only one quest from each category per day.

New UI and Party System for Cabal

With the Radiant Hall patch about to go live in a couple of weeks, GM Viral of Cabal EU has once again released vital information regarding the changes that we can expect from the game.

Although still in the Test Server phase, Cabal Kr has again released another update regarding upcoming changes that will be made to the game. The recent update talks about the addition of Transcender skills to the amazingly unique roster of character skills available in the game.

Is Neo Steam Hot Enough?

Neo Steam: The Shattered Continent is a steampunk MMO. It takes place on a continent called Chrysalis, in which magic and science worked together, in harmony. Eventually, a powerful substance called "Neo Steam" is found by a subset of the Pom race known as the Maestros. Join either the Republic of Rogwel or the Elerd Kingdom and explore the world of Chrysalis. While each faction is made up of the same seven races and four base classes, they wage constant war with one another for control of the precious neosteam resources.

Here’s a guide on how to complete the Steamer Crazy DX Dungeon. This dungeon is fairly easy to solo depending on the difficulty you choose. As difficulty increases, so does attack power, hit points and defense of the mobs and bosses increases. Higher difficulty also means nicer drops.

New GUI and Party System for Cabal

Illusion Castle brings a lot of changes for the Philippines' top MMORPG. Along with new dungeons and weapons is the complete facelift of the User Interface and an easier to use Party System.

New Cabal Items and Weapons

To start out there were some particular situations when you are joining or rejoining a dungeon that needs a bit more explanation. The first one is where for example two people went to a dungeon, and then a third friend logs in and wants to join their dungeon run as well. Yes, it is completely possible for one of the two inside the dungeon to log out, then let the third person join the party before re-entering. The third person will now be able to join the first two inside, with no problems.
