The Ultimate Moster MMORPG From Japan

Hello im back! And just like the servers of Japans "Monster Rancher Online" which shut down last October 2008 they returned to bring back an even better game just this January 2010. Introducing"Monster Farm Lagoon Online" with new avatar features and better graphics and of course new monsters. Sadly I wasn't able to get ahead of the IP block that they recently implemented :(
I was such a fan of this game when It was first released on the Playstation I probably stuck a gazillion discs inside just to find out what kind of monsters are hiding in my discs. The online game seems to have this feature also which is great and from the looks of it the monster trainer is going to be part of fights. One element of monster rancher that I really hated was the short lifespan of the pets it seem that this will be eliminated in the online version too *sigh* such a great game by the looks of it but sadly only in Japan. The monster rancher servers have been up since quite some time why don’t we get any of them heck we get the Playstation versions :( *sigh*

Sadly I can no longer do daily updates but ill still be doing them I want to focus more time on gameing since I recently started Pandora Saga on the Malaysian servers my characters name is “Aliciah” if your interested check out the old entries see you there it’s a grindfest but people are nice and the population is low and peaceful

"Aki of the Kingdom Faction"

Anything more Japanese than a Gundam MMO?

"SD-Gundam capsul fighter online" how cool would it be to be able to use your favorite Gundam from all centuries to battle out online. Well if you love Gundam well then it would be SUPER COOL!!!. Browsing around on my free time (which obviously have a lot of) and looking for those great exclusive games we all want to play I found this game.
The game is very simple really. You are given a Mobile Suite at the start and you battle it out with your basic MS to earn gold to "Gacha" for more suits (Similar to Gachapon or Yujin where you put money in and turn the knob to get a random toy in a round capsule I collect these XD) for more MS, and eventually you can also build your own MS using special plans
The games interface is similar to a MMOFPS with 3 battle modes
Individual training mode: For the Nubs
Group Mission Mode: Yup the game isn’t restricted to battles there’s like armored core missions 2-4 players may be in a group.
PVP mode: This is obviously where you fight other players 7 players may battle it out on free for all or as a team there are also three other modes in PVP the standard mode where you just respawn and kill till the time limit the death match mode where you have a set number of life and the most fun mode the battle ship mode where you can store 2-4 of your MS in your battle ship and use them sort of like a tag battle you can switch Gundams like King of Fighters or Marvel vs. Capcom each Gundam is worth 10 point if there are still MS battling on the time limit the one with the highest points win. this is the mode that requires more strategy and is most fun
The game controls are simple and easy to learn it’s just like a MMOFPS but there is an auto aim function which you can switch on and off since some weapons are better to use with the manual aim
The only thing I really don’t like in the game is the SD "Meaning super deformed" or if you prefer the chibi-Gundam models this game would be perfect if they used the regular sized ones but this game is worth a try ill post a link teaching you how to register if your interested and it also includes a few guides.
and here they are:

Have fun!!!

My Pandora Saga Weekend

Well today, I’m going off topic and not showing a game but I want to talk about a game I’ve shown previously "Pandora Saga" it’s sort of like a review since I got a lot of views on that topic
I downloaded the client which was about 900+Mb so almost a Gig there was a manual patch for only 5Mb while the game still had to patch it wasn’t so bad just a few min about 10min well that depends on your net mine sucks so it should be ok
I then proceeded to login and created my first character "Aliciah" so if you want to pm me in game sure! Character creation was very simple you just get to choose the hair, hair color, and face I made a fighter since it’s the basic class on most MMORPGs
The graphics of the game weren’t so bad really and I kind of liked it though most of the character models look the same it seem that the most dominant race in the game player wise is the Ekidnu those hell boy looking giants and nobody seems to like using the dwarves
The start was very simple it’s like the early quests are tutorials. yes I knew that there will be little quests in the game and honestly they are very unrewarding they give so little XP and gold your just better of grinding it’s like talk to the NPC when you’re in town and grind you’ll eventually accomplish the quest unintendedly
The in game community isn’t so bad people will approach you to chat i really hate it when your just starting and the noobs are asking for money from you well I didn’t encounter it in the game
Though there was, a low population to where I was seems like it’s the noob town. Yes the low level population is very low and I occasionally see the high level guys just zoom past you. so I guess you’ll see the other people only when you get to a higher level which I kinda like so the map isn’t congested
Well I started to leave town and just swatted some monsters I was doing this while watching season 5 of the office :) so yup i was on anti-social mode and what can I say its a grinding game the Japs do love the traditional RPG theme where you grind go back to town sell your loots grind again well I don’t have a problem with this theme I actually enjoyed it and I will play this game till the game I’m waiting for comes out I haven’t joined a faction yet and haven’t really done much so i guess there’s more stuff to do in the game I just haven’t made it yet but I’m enjoying myself and I haven’t watched season 6 of the office I’ll watch it while playing this :)
I'll do a game tomorrow

Lucent heart a zodiac based game in Japan (Best Rookie MMORPG)

"Lucent Heart" another amazing MMORPG from Japan this game has been very successful there it even won the best rookie MMORPG and they have recently started there servers full time (meaning it’s not in the beta stage anymore) and launched this game in Taiwan also
The game focuses on the Zodiac system think "Saint Seiya" or "Final Fantasy Tactics" and makes very well use of this unique feature which I will explain later on first i want to do the basics of the game and the job classes here are a list of available classes in the game each basic class can choose from two branches once they reach a certain level
Physical Attack:
Fightercan advance to either:
  • Gunner (ranged attacker)
  • Knight (melee attacker)
Knightcan advance to either:
  • Paladin (defensive melee attacker)
  • Templar Knight (offensive melee attacker)
Gunnercan advance to either:
  • Ranger (party supportive range attacker)
  • Sniper (offensive orientated range attacker)
Magical Attack:
Mage can advance to either:
  • Priest (supportive)
  • Magician (offensive)
Priestcan advance to either:
  • Prophet (enhanced buffing skills)
  • Bishop (enhanced healing skills)
Magiciancan advance to either:
  • Wizard (offensive orientated caster)
  • Sorcerer (party supportive caster)
Other Basic features of the game are the "Pet System" which is common in almost every MMOPRG but this is more complex since the pets are all unique from each other in the sense that they level up and have different skills and evolve almost like a "Pokémon" another one is the "Mount System" which you can share with your partner another feature I will explain later on since this game is very complex.
Okay now here is the unique feature of the game the "Zodiac System" or the Horoscope if you prefer you get to choose preferably your own "Constellation" this affects you characters in many ways and also affects the game play , such as daily luck, the constellation story, individuality and emotion. The daily luck is more or less your astrology forecast for players. These, in turn, will affect the combat ability, relationship, crafting luck, element and item drop rate for the player.
Not only that, different constellation elements have different set of talent skills too.
Every horoscope has different types of ability boost and special skills, which match certain classes. An example is that Leo is able gain 60% more critical damage in return for 5% less critical chances. Some of the other skills include a skill that adds 20000 defense for 30 sec at the cost of 1% HP and MP per second. Of course, judging by the name, Leo should resemble a tanker kind of role, which means that these skills will match nicely with the player’s desired constellation.
Casting a spell on the enemy or hitting him with an element is also quite complicated if you cast a water spell on the enemy it will cause an element change casting fire on him will cause reduced damage while electricity will increase damage
Another advance feature in the game is the "Cupid System" which you can see other players Zodiac and see if your compatible are not the (Japanese really are into this thing even blood type matching)
So meaning there is also a marriage system in the game and by looking at the screens it looks really well done with a ceremony and kissing XD
Having a partner also gives out unique skills and privileges such as being able to enter date dungeons and bonuses during party battles. The skills though still have to be unlocked by obtaining cupid points so expect to share a lot of time with your partner you can share a mount and hunt together all day roaming the lands XD
The graphics of the game look really good. Characters have expressions which are also affected by the day and zodiac there is also dancing and emotions you can do the game has almost everything even an auto loot system the even small map is done very well. This is definitely one game I want to play on an English server hope we get one soon
"Or if you can read and speak Japanese heres the link to register its free to play also for those who just don't care and wanna try it XD (no guide this tome :( )"

"See you after the weekends"

Tower Of Druaga From International classic to Japan only MMORPG...... Darn it!!!!

Tower of Druaga or "Druaga no Tou" in Japanese the game first appeared in the arcades in 1984 a game created by NAMCO it use to run on the old Super Pac Man engine and was a grat classic for its time I had this game for the Super Famicom since in asia we mostly got this console instead of the NES games of this series were also realeased for the Super NES, Game boy Colored, Playstation, Playstation 2, Nintendo DS, and the XBOX 360 the concepts of the games were all the same navigate the maze tower and reach the top of the 60 floor tower beat the evil lord druaga and rescue the preistess Ki
An anime series was also released on 2008 Tower of Druaga: Aegis Of Uruk and Tower Of Druaga: Sword Of Uruk (Season 2) which upon watching them became one of my favorite anime series of all time
And one game stands out in the series released on 2009 in Japan The "Tower Of Druaga: Recovery Of Babylim" was released it’s an MMORPG based on the series much of the concept is still the same but since the recent popularity of the Anime series and the news spreading of no IP blocks it’s got everybody jumping in the game
The objective is still to reach the 60 Floor and beat Druaga there are four job classes the Soldier, Scout, Druid, and Mage each job class has a second class and the third class has not yet been implemented
And for the players who are fans of the Anime and want to play the game I will be giving a link below for the guide on how to play In Japan servers but be warned it's going to be a big download and a long patching process but don’t worry since there seems to be quite a number of English speaking players from all over the world playing the guide also contains help/translations with the menus and skill interface
And here it is

A new "Amazing!" one from Japan

This one is fresh from Japan and still in close beta but it’s very interesting and has lots of innovative stuff I’m looking forward to playing this even in the Japan servers I hope they don’t put an IP block
"Arcadia Saga" by Gonzo Rosso the guys who also made and released "Pandora Saga" which I did a few days back though I can't say much about the job classes from what i've seen (since Im only half Japanese and grew up elsewhere) i can tell that there’s a Warrior/ Fighter class, Archer and Mage but what really sets the game apart and got people talking are the things in game that you can do and believe me there are a lot of extras of the same old and the really innovative.
Here are some of them
- Mobs in the map are all tamable: Just like imagine online any bad guy can become your pet
- You can build a house anywhere you want: Yup that’s something new you build a house or something like a small farm there is an actual production system since towns are far apart. you design both the interior and exterior of your humble abode by buying stuff or producing them. Asides from the normal character stat and skill level up it seems you have also building skills you can level up. Its gonna be a land rush since you can own a region XD
Yeah so I have a house so what? Monsters will try to raid your house and destroy it. The game reminds me of one of my favorite classic games for the P.C and 3DO the horde where you have to protect your farm from the monsters that want to destroy your farm. I loved that game XD
- Crafting and lots of it: ranging from cooking, furniture, armor, weapon(all in game armor weapon potion can be craft) jewelry, tailoring, beverage, and other stuff. Weapon/armor forging and customizing( you can add an apple to your weapon which will give xx attribute)
- Ride able horses: Well the only mount in the game so far at least its realistic
- The music is composed by "Sakimoto Hitoshi" don’t know him? he did "Final Fantasy XII"
- and supervised by "Ryo Mizuno" don’t know him also? He created "Record of Lodoss War"
I was so excited to tell you about the unique stuff I forgot to tell you the story. Well its simple really the human world was destroyed and people are trying to survive in the harsh new world thus the title "Arcadia Saga Rebuild the Utopia" yup its like build your own town with other players MMORPG
Well this is one game that’s 100% on my wish list I really am hoping to be able to play this on the International servers with everybody but for now I’ll settle with the Japan servers and try to play as much as possible when the open beta comes out hope to
See you there Its lonely around the none English speaking crowd
