Dragon Nest NA Open Beta on July 26

It's the time for Dragon Nest to recruit more warriors into the dangerous instances! Revealed at the Dragon Nest(NA) official site, the game will enter open beta on July 26. If you haven't got an account, what are you waiting for, just head over the Dragon Nest website and register for the upcoming adventure.

Latest Cabal 2 Screenshots

Those who are waiting for new revelation of Cabal 2 finally get something new today. Although no gameplay details or beta news, 3 new screenshots is still a nice update from the developer ESTSoft.

Using CryEngine3, Cabal 2 features eye-catching graphics and cutting-edge stylish action. Cabal 2 is a story-based MMORPG and offers gamers rich scenarios and what's more, according to the official introduction, the game has an actual scenario ending.

Cabal 2 evolutionizes the original game's combat system with better actions, combos, and monster AI. Besides, different character classes boast their own storyline and unique development route, and you will experience more interesting gameplay when leveling up, instead of doing typical hunting and rooting.

Cabal Maquinas Outpost

This place is hard. Very hard. You are going to get a nasty surprise if you go in there unprepared. I have seen several people make some very confident claims on the forum, about how quickly they will finish it, and I am very curious indeed to see if anyone has what it will take to back those claims up (no problem in the cheat-infested Cabal PH, I suppose).

The last dungeon that this one can be compared to is the Forgotten Temple B2F. The Forbidden Island, Altar of Siena, Radiant Hall... They have nothing on this place. You might think that I am exaggerating now, but you will see. You enter behind the now non-aggressive Pluma, and that’s about the last non-aggressive part of the dungeon.

Ohs no! The Kiss Controller!

If you're one of those fellas who likes (a lot) of tongue exercise, then Hye Yeon Nam just did you a great favor! She probably made this device for couples going through a rough patch because the other plays too much console games. Through the Kiss controller, you can play games and bond with your girl at the same time (of course if you don't mind having magnets between your tongues).

The Kiss controller is a game instrument that allows you to use your mouth (and your tongue) instead of using thine lovely hands. The mechanics are quite simple. As the user moves his/her tongues with magnets attached, this creates varying magnetic fields that are used to control games. There is a viral video demonstration of a bowling game online, wherein the players increased the speed of the ball by moving the tongue faster. Quite interesting, eh?

The Chosen goes on CBT

Ola! Since mhauck is busy with med school, I'd be updating this blog for the meantime. So expect random posts from me from time to time. For today, we'll start with the launch of a new game in an ancient oriental setting.

Snail Games USA announced the start of The Chosen's CBT phase for the North American release. The Chosen is a mythical MMORPG set in ancient war-torn China. The CBT started on June 23, 2011, beta key holders would have exclusive early access, leading the heroic march into battle before The Chosen officially launches to the public on July 5, 2011.

Cabal Legacy of Darkness: Force Core Upgrading System

I will be discussing the improved upgrading system. Or, to be more specific, the new Force Core Upgrading system, seeing as the general upgrade system was improved a while ago with the possibility to upgrade all the way to +15.

As most of you reading this will be aware of the fact that the force core upgrading system will change with the Legacy Of Darkness update I will simply try to clear up some rumours surrounding it. Random Option Scrolls, Defined Option Scrolls, etc, as well as go through some minor changes to the system. For the most part it is a visual change and some options to give you more control while enchanting slots.

Because classes here in the Philippines has already resumed, I will not be able to update this as often as before. Third Year Medicine demands a lot of time due to extensive reading assignments and cases that as much as it upsets me, this will have to be at the bottom of my to-do list.

Hopefully Princess Cow will take over for me.

Study hard.

Cabal Legacy of Darkness Developers' Notes

We are pleased to release the Developers' Notes for the next CABAL update: Legacy of Darkness

These are only Developers' Notes. This means that while the information contained here is accurate it might also change, and some features might be added or removed before the update goes live on our servers.

Also, there is NO RELEASE DATE YET. There is no point in asking when it will go live, since as soon as we know we will inform you about it. Please do not create numerous posts and threads asking when the update will go live (not that asking this has stopped anyone in the past, but hope dies last).

Please remember that these notes are LIABLE TO CHANGE. They still have to go through a number of tests (during which it is almost guaranteed that some parts will change).

A quick run-through of the major additions though, in no particular order:

SP dice and Dungeon Points (DP): Good, solid additions.
New Armour and Epaulet: The epaulet is better than an +8 one. Enough said.
New Dungeon: Excellent dungeon, for sure. Hard as well, and with a brand-new game mechanic in place. I like it.
Fade-step to cursor: I do not think it has been mentioned, but it is fun, and I think it will have a big impact for so small a change.
Resizing the UI: You can now pick from different sizes for the entire UI.
Re-entering a solo dungeon after DC: I do not think anyone can object to this.
New force core upgrade system: This one will need some explanation later, I think.
Class-restricted armour: Same as the above.
New names for Epic items: I am not a fan of the names (yet) but I guess they will grow on me.
New ‘Named’ Mobs on the lower maps: These are loads of fun, and will be great for the lowest level players. They have an interesting drop system in place for these. I might dedicate a paragraph or two to them in a later blog.
Bike upgrades: Not bad either. Especially since the bike upgrade kits go up to Highest, and you only need Medium upgrades kits for an RW3... Some promise for the future ;-)

Grand Epic Online: An Epic Gaming Experience

Ever since there came the concept of browser game, editorialists have been exclaiming over the new dimension of computer gaming. But as for browser-based MMORPGs, most we get in past years are only disappointments that are more of a texting game with very limited, if none at all, visual or action elements. Good thing is we now see real progress.

We finally see a browser game that lives up to the category of MMORPG and mark as an epic in the industry as its name implies. Its name is Grand Epic Online PH. Grand Epic Online (GEO) PH is an innovative 2.5D browser MMORPG presented by RUNUP Information Technology Corp. With an accurate depiction of Chinese fairyland, Grand Epic Online PH is able to deliver the best gaming experience via its interactive story quests where Chinese beliefs such as natural harmony, true love, personal sacrifice & collective interest were told.
