The Dark Knight hype is real in South Korea at the moment and continues to grow strong until the official release this week. Meanwhile, you can watch the new gameplay trailer that was just released a few hours ago to satiate your thirst! Hmmm, I'll be playing it since I already made the character and all though I'm wondering if I should explore the new areas or grind Dark Knight right away? I believe my account is also qualified for a free +15 of something as a returning player. Her attacks look decent, but that 100% skill looks a bit underwhelming. I wonder if her awakening will let her transform into a real Dark Knight Mabinogi style~!
Ar:piel Online is going to get a new playable character this week named L'Vine who belongs to a family of legendary Armadillos. If this is your first time hearing about this game, Ar:piel Beastia Institute is a cutesy Anime MMORPG featuring students with special animal like traits. This character kind of reminds me of Captain America shota edition! I might try him out depending on my schedule this week. If you like K-Pop, you can listen to his theme song here, currently listening to it on repeat.
I test a lot of games and they all come and go, but Hyper Universe is still remains installed and I often login for a game or two. I've even supported the developers by purchasing a handful of skins. The game has a ton of playable characters so you're likely to find one that suits your style. There was this one interesting ugly looking character that I wanted to play, but didn't really like his monster look. I noticed he had a cute yellow bear skin, dunked some Nexon cash and played him all day, lol. I gave everyone hugs and body slammed em in my latest gameplay below! Now that I think about it, all of my character skins below is sporting out the yellow color.
As promised, here are a couple gameplay videos featuring the new playable character in the Japanese version of SoulWorker Online. I spent my weekend testing her out and she seems really strong! I've also noticed that they made the game much more challenging and it's actually possible to die during the early chapters. The SoulWorker team made some changes with the monsters having less HP in exchange for a great damage boost. I like the new changes so far, but I wonder how new players would react to em. I'm thinking of casually leveling up this character, seems pretty cool so far, I should craft some unique weapons as they're good for ten or so levels. This just leaves one more character left from the early alpha previews, which is Chain Blade!
Dragon Nest for PC was one of the first few games that actually got me in the whole Korean gaming thing many years ago so I had to try out the mobile version that's currently in Closed Beta. The game looks pretty good for a mobile game and didn't seem to lag at all. I did a quick test on the four playable characters in my short gameplay video below. Archer and Sorcerer seemed really fun! Dragon Nest Awakening's targeting system is a bit different compared to the PC version and much more user-friendly. I would probably played the heck out of this game if it came out years ago, but I'm all Dragon Nested out. I find it strange that they used both Korean and Chinese voice overs.
I've been skipping out on testing Durango for quite awhile now because it didn't really look all that interesting from a viewers point of view. After finally picking the game up and trying it out, I shortly became addicted! Just doing a quick write-up before the English beta starts next week, you can still sign-up if you think this game is right up your alley.
