XLGAMES takes hacking very serious and recently banned over 22,000 accounts in the game, most of them are probably mining bots or using illegal programs. I'm glad they are taking the extra steps on banning the cheaters of this game haha, I've had my share of hackers in the game ranging from speed hacking, mine hacking, and all that crazy stuff. I just hope they can keep up with it. There are also reports of players getting hacked, so if you're playing the Korean version, make sure you enable the "Sign On to one PC" feature.
Pearl Abyss just revealed their brand new seven minute long trailer for their upcoming non-targeting action MMORPG Black Desert Online. The game is about 80% finished and Pearl Abyss is looking forward to start their first Closed Beta Test some time this July. If all goes well, they are hoping to start their Open Beta test this December. Wow, their game progress is a little bit too fast it's kind of scaring me! The current trailer is available in 720p, perhaps I will get a 1080p one after their conference finishes. I just added the 1080p trailer below, now you can enjoy the gameplay teaser trailer in super high definition!
Netmarble Korea just released a brand new CG teaser trailer for their upcoming crazy RPS/TPS zombie game called Hounds Online. I've actually tested out this title a couple times and it's pretty fun, though it seems like the game focuses a lot more on the PvE content of the game. I was hoping their PvP would be along the lines of Left 4 Dead player controleld humans vs player controlled zombies. Unforunately, that doesn't seem to be the case and you're fighting against humans vs humans. Anyway, I've posted the latest trailer below along with a gameplay video of mine.
Ez2On Online is officially back in action and will be phasing into Open Beta starting on January 22nd, 2013. It's really hard to find a good online rhythm game now a days, most of them end up shutting down their service and stuff. It has been around 3 years since I have last heard from this game, I actually even wrote a super old school review of the game a long time ago. Anyway, if you guys are looking to try out a new music game then check it out. Registering is very easy because it does not require any personal information or numbers! Seems like they added some kind of last minute verification for Open Beta, sad thing is they don't even inform players until they have finish downloading!
NADDIC GAMES just released a multi language teaser webpage for their upcoming ultra high speed action fighting MORPG called Closers. The website can be viewed in three different languages which includes English, Japanese, and Korean. I suggest checking out the website at http://www.closers.co.kr/, Closers is actually one of the top games I am looking forward to testing out sometime this year. The website teases everyone with a lot of new stuff like gameplay videos, an English opening version of the trailer, screenshots, background story, and many more.
Final Fantasy All The Bravest just came out for the iOS today and with my internet connection being shady and down all day, I decided to write a mini preview of the game. I've always been a big fan of the Final Fantasy series, so I knew I had to get this game once it was released. As always, I have prepared a bunch of 1080p and 720p HD gameplay videos just for your viewing pleasure. Perhaps it will help you decide on whether you should purchase this game or not.
