DC Universe Online Lightning Strikes DLC is now Live and you may now purchase the DLC for $9.99 or have it free if you have the Legendary Account access. You may now start creating your new character with Electricity Power Set and it may be inspired by Black Lightning for the Heroes or Livewire for the Villains. The electricity power set is mostly focused on healing support skills. Here's a short early game footage of my character inspired by Flash with Super Speed ability and Electricity Power set.

Some thoughts about Entropia Universe

First of all, Happy New 2011 Year everyone!!!

Right on the first day of this year I remembered about this awesome community and decided to finally start developing here. As such, I got an idea about starting making blog entries    In my first (and therefore the most official) entry I'd like to talk about Entropia Universe.


Although it doesn't have a separate forum for it, Entropia Universe is also a MMORPG. So why did I choose it and not some other game? Because it's different from all others that exist and are popular these days. The one thing that makes it so popular and so different is its "real economy". The game currency, PED, is basically bound to real American Dollar. To get PED, you have to buy it for real money. The trade rate is 10:1 (for 1$ you g

  Vendetta Online: Player Conquerable Station Added 

The new player conquerable station that was recently added to the space MMO Vendetta Online, has definitely added a new element of conquest and warfare into the universe. Guild Software implemented this large update initially on January 23, a day for the Vendetta Online (or “VO”) history books. This addition to the game is quite impressive considering the development team consists of only four individuals. Since it's implementation on January 23, the game has had four patches that have gone on to add new features, such as the unique manufacturing mission, to the new conquerable station. Guild software is planning on releasing even more conquerable stations in the near future throughout gray space as all bugs and balance issues are dealt with. 

The station itself can be conquered once all of its defensive turrets are destroyed. After the turrets are destroyed, the first person to dock can generate or selec

NOTES: PC/PS2 notes that I mention are based on the statistics of the English version, NOT the Japanese version. The Xbox 360 servers are global, that means the US/EU play with the Japanese unlike the PC/PS2 version. However, the information I have on PC/PS2 is dated because I haven't played it in 3 months or so. Also, traditionally, only special events such as Maximum Attack G (MAG) and rare missions give out higher exp and drop rates.

This is one of the recent updates posted at Sega's official Japanese Phantasy Star Universe website


This is a graph showing the number of players on Phantasy Star Universe for the last year. The US PC/PS2 servers has about 300 active players during peak hours down from around 500-600 during its peak hours just a bit over a year ago.

In the last year, the population has dropped significantly even with the release of Phantasy Star Portable. One of the reasons behind this is Sega's constant screw ups within the last year. In December of 2007, a few hackers were allowed to run rampant on the PC/PS2 servers and even crashed many players. This continued for about 2 weeks before Sega employees came back from their

Phantasy Star Universe Review

Phantasy Star Universe (PSU) is the follow up to SEGA's last popular action MMORPG dungeon crawler thing called Phantasy Star Online (PSO) and Phantasy Star Online: Blue Burst (PSO:BB). The game is basically broken down into dungeon crawling with a small group of people who are either Warriors, Gunners, or Mages. PSU was released a few years back and through elaborate schemes has managed to provide weekly updates and remained quite popular. Most of the files necessary in their "updates" are contained in the installation already. They just make a small patch to unlock some of the content each week to seem like there are updates every week.  If you play on Xbox, you have voice chat but are on separate servers from the PC and PS2 versions. Normal PSU and the Ambition of the Illuminous (AoTI) expansion play on the same servers but normal PSU players are capped at level 100 and can't access any of the new missions or content which remain AoTI exclusive. All AoTI exclusive content is displayed in yellow letters instead of white.

The story is broken down into 3 parts. Phantasy Star Portable fits in as Episode 1.5. Ambition of the Illuminous takes place in Episode 2 a

I'm shur yu guys have heard of the Phantasy Star series right? RIGHT?? o.o;;
Well, there's been news and everything lately spread across the reaches of the interwebs but since I just started up blogging here, I might as well rant about this.
Yepp, the PSP is getting it's own Phantasy Star game and it's no remake, oh boy. >.>
The only thing that disappoints is the lack of online game play. (only ad-hoc and infrastructure) So you need to know someone with the game.
One of the coolest things I think is the option to use your character from PSU! (Phantasy Star Universe)
I've played PSO from the Dreamcast to the Gamecube and also Blue Burst and I've always wanted to try PSU. I might start it sometime this summer if I get the chance.. And the money. =.= haha
Here's the box art and it looks quite spiffy I do say so myself. Trailer and Intro is out there too, look it up on YouTube or GameTrailers.
If your PSP has been lonely, pick this up when it comes stateside (if it does, let's cross our fingers).

It's set for release in Japan on July 31st 2008. Import if you wish, or wait for a USA release to be announced.
