  • Diablo 3 – A bit disappointed with the Auction ...
    By on June 17th, 2012 | No Comments Comments

    So it has been a month since the release of Diablo 3 and the game is still going strong for me and my friends. Though the game is still highly addictive but it is not without any problems. One major problem would be the annoying error code/messages that we used to get during the first week or so and the randomly getting kick out of games. That was fixed after doing some port forwarding on the router.

    This next one has been annoying me since day 1, the Auction House, or simply AH in short. I KNow some people are going to bash me and say AH is one of the best things ever added to the game. In my opinion, again I’m not speaking for anyone else but myself here, that the AH actually makes the game less enjoyable. The first time I checked out what others had to offer in the Auction House I was impressed. The items available for purchase with game money Consoldiate at Bridge Payday (gold) or real money were simply amazing and the stats the items give were godly. Then I realized that wasn’t really a good thing wasn’t it? Now whenever you get stuck because your gears and/or level are not strong enough, you just head to the Auction House, grab some uber gears and your character has now turned into this godly monster killing machine. What is the fun in that being able to “one shot” anything you see?

    I think a lot of people rely heavily on purchasing good items from the Auction House just to eliminate the challenge they are facing (specially kids with no patience?). I personally prefer finding my own “drops” or “loot” from killing monsters as oppose to getting the them the much easier way (you still have to have enough gold to buy them, unless you buy them outright with real money). To me the series its all about finding items, sort of like treasure hunting. The level of satisfaction when buying items in the Auction House is no match to when finding them yourself.

    That is the reason why I have never bought anything on AH, I still sell unused items though. I have also stopped receiving items from my friends as well a long time ago. A bit overboard? Perhaps. But I would rather enjoy this game to its fullest (minus the AH).

    I will stop here and get back to my item hunting in Inferno.

  • Yuusha 30 – Speed leveling JRPG for your PSP!
    By on March 4th, 2009 | No Comments Comments

    Normally when you play any RPG games, it will take more than 10 hours assuming you do some level grinding as well as some side missions. Yuusha 30, a JRPG that will be released in May in Japanese is basically a JRPG that will last only 30 seconds before you have to head back to any village to heal up, purchase items etc. You might think, what the hell? I don’t blame you but after watching this trailer, I just fell in love with it right away.

    I mean I have never seen such crazy level grinding before, leveling up multiple times within 30 seconds is insanely fast! I guess I should call it speed leveling instead of level grinding. And that’s exactly why I’m so drawn to this game, CRAZY FAST style game play. Also the classic heavy old-school pixelated graphics brings a lot of memories back.

    I’m getting the Japanese version when it comes out since the game is so simple, in a good way, there is no need to wait for the North American version. Its simple enough for me to play and navigate through different menus.

    Boy, I can’t wait to do some speed level grinding!

    Also check out this hilarious Japanese commercial, its the real life version of the game, it ran over 30 seconds, oh times up! I can’t get enough of all these crazy and hilarious Japanese commercials!

  • Final Fantasy XIII – New cinematics and game pl...

    Finally, a new trailer released on Gametrailers that includes new cinematics as well as actual game play. Unfortunately this game won’t be released until end of this year or early next year. After watching this trailer, my desire for this game has reached the roof, I have been drooling for too long. Hopefully when the Blu-ray version of Final Fantasy 7: AC Complete, I will finally get a taste of the game.

    Until then, I will keep playing this trailer over and over again until another teaser is released.
