The Dungeon Striker stress test seems to be progressing very smoothly. Hangame Korea added a cash shop preview yesterday and I decided to make a short mini video of it. If you thought characters in this game were cute, then you'll be in for a real treat because you can pimp out characters to make her/him look even cuter than before. I actually did some leveling during the stress test and the EXP rates is still the same as the previous Closed Betas. Which is a good thing for players who want to fully take advantage of Dungeon Striker's unique job system.
Netmarble Korea just disbanded LADA Studio due to a dispute between the company and the team. LADA Studio which is Netmarbles MMORPG gaming studio was founded last year around November 2012 and it was one of the hottest topics in South Korea, mainly because they scouted Park Yonghyeon who was the developer of Lineage 2 and Tera Online. According to Netmarble, they want to postpone on developing MMORPG's and focus more on the mobile gaming market. Netmarble Korea asked LADA Studio to work on mobile titles instead, but they refused.
LivePlex Korea officially announced that they are planning on releasing a mobile version of Queen's Blade aka Scarlet Blade Online. The mobile version titled Queen's Blade Prelude of War is a turn-based RPG. The game will feature nine different areas, three unique dungeons, transformation system, and three playable characters. With the mobile version coming out some time this month, players can take their Scarlet Blade experience everywhere on the go, even their bed.
NCSoft Korea just released their official videos of the upcoming new areas for the big Blade & Soul update scheduled to be released sometime this month or the next. It's pretty much the same videos that I released yesterday, except this one doesn't have any voice overs and is a little bit more HD. I'm still looking forward to the other areas since the upcoming update is supposedly going to feature a lot of snow areas. Honestly, all the upcoming areas shown below doesn't look all that great with the exception of the Snow Giants Cave.
Action MMORPG Red Blood Online launched its Grand Opening Test just yesterday and it has been receiving positive reviews so far. Red Blood is a Multi Targeting Action MMORPG. Meaning the game mainly focuses on you training a bunch of monsters together and using your auto attacks or skills to mow down everything at once. Sounds interesting enough for you? Then go on ahead and check out some of my gameplay videos below. If you're still having trouble deciding on whether to play this game or not, then perhaps you can read up on my Red Blood Online Closed Beta Review.
The live service test for Sword Girls S launched yesterday and received a lot of attention. Unfortunately, Sword Girls S was short-lived and had to be terminated 11 hours in the launch due to a critical bug and exploit with the cash system. Being a card maniac, there was no way that I would have missed this opportunity on testing out Sword Girls S, so I have prepared a really awesome mini review for you guys to enjoy. This review is going to be image heavy so you might want to pre load the page before hand.
