I've recently had a chance to try out BlueMoon Online and I must say the game looks really impressive in terms of graphics quality. Even with very nice looking graphics and smooth gameplay, I fear that this game may be doomed if it continues to be cash shop heavy. I was actually frustrated playing this game even when we were given a bunch of free cash points to use up during the closed beta phase. You're probably wondering why right? Then come find out after the cut, in my first look preview of BlueMoon Online!

RaiderZ Online the upcoming MMORPG from the creators of GunZ the Duel has gone through major changes compared to the previous closed beta builds. They added a new skill combo system, graphical changes, faster gameplay, improved character animations, and etc. I have been following this game on and off and the graphics does look a lot better compared to last year. MAEIT Entertainment will also be adding the Assassin and Sorcerer class, so expect a lot more variety in the next beta. The upcoming Closed Beta Test is scheduled to start some time next month, though you'll have to be really lucky to get in because they are only picking 200 users.
We all know that I don't like taking the weekends off every time there is a big game going on! With that said, the 2nd Phantasy Star Online 2 Alpha 2 Test Preview is now online for your viewing pleasure. To switch things up a little bit, I decided to create and play a new character. In today's preview, I will be playing as a Newman Ranger! The second test session was a lot popular compared to previous one, probably because it is the weekend. The amount of players playing seemed to have doubled and SEGA of Japan had to close off new character creation in one of the servers!
SEGA JAPAN officially launched the 2nd Alpha Test for Phantasy Star Online 2 yesterday! As for now PSO2 Alpha2 does not have an NDA, just as long as users indicate that the game is still in it's early phases. With that said, all of the information and media you find on this game may turn out to be irrelevant in the future. The servers were a little bit laggy due to the overwhelming amount of players participating in the alpha test. I would say my first day of testing went rather well, I managed to beat the last dungeon of the test and hit close to the level 20 cap. I've recorded over an hours worth of 1080p HD gameplay videos for those of you who missed my livestream session last night.
