Greetings! I just wanted to let you guys know that I'm still alive! I was gone during my extended holiday mostly gaming and sleeping. The cold weather makes me super tired so I went off and hibernated for awhile. I've got nothing special planned for this year so expect more of the same random news and stuff! I'm probably going to start doing more blog related gaming posts. I'm looking forward to testing out new games and going on new adventures this year, but as many of you know, the Eastern Online PC game industry has been at a slow crawl, while the mobile gaming market is still blooming and milking players.
Hero Entertainment's Phantom Blade 2 came out last month for the iOS and it seems like there is an Android version now, so I went ahead and downloaded it! You start the game off with one main character and you'll get two more characters by the time you finish the tutorial. I'm digging the whole artwork and style of the game so far. The super flashy combo combat system is nice and it seems to have some kind of super saiyan mode or perhaps that was just for the starting prologue, lol. I might test it a bit more to see if I can unlock the other characters.
The Tree of Savior clone from China titled Tale of the Lost City Online is going to be coming out in South Korea published by Nextmove and branded as Lost Tale. There is a big controversy revolving around this title and the current localization due to the stolen assets from Tree of Savior. If you've played a lot of TOS in the past like me, you will notice a lot of similarities! I've posted a gameplay video of the Chinese adventures below. I might try out the Korean version just for kicks, lol.
Neople and Nexon just released gameplay trailers showing off all twelve playable jobs for Dungeon & Fighter: Spirit. As I wrote a few days ago, the Pre-Registration has begun, but only available to Korean users. However, once the game is released, you should be able to play the game just fine, as long as you don't mind it being in Korean. There should be a couple more teasers after this, I wonder if the game is coming out soon, like this month or the next? They sure are building hype momentum!
Closers Online still continues to grow strong with another new playable female character added just today. Violet the Valkyrie is the daughter of one of the co-founders of Vulture and she's out on an important mission. She's also got a pretty cool handy butler that randomly pops up during certain skills and actions. I would like to see some more synchronize attacks with her butler later on or perhaps a complexed tag-team dual character mode.
There was one particular area that I really liked in the latest Black Desert Online update, so I went ahead and made a short tour video of the Naban Grasslands of Kamasilvia. Explorers should be on high alert when exploring the new regions as some of the monsters are able to one shot players! Check out some of the new monsters below along with some Chocobo-like creatures going Kweh!
