When Eastern Anime and Western Cartoons Mix

Imagine when Anime for the east get mixed up with cartoons of the west, what would be the outcome?

It's gonna be one weird What-If scenario, so let's begin
Imagine when the famous Death Note anime series becomes a cartoon show (meaning it have the cartoonish artwork) in America, and we'll use The Simpsons art style, curious on how it looks like? just take a look at the picture below

Now this is the biggest LOL moment ever...
Now what if it goes the other way, instead of the Death Note going the Simpons style, why not make the Simpsons go the Death Note way?

A really bizarre combination eh? well I hope you enjoy this funny post
Kudos to Space Coyote for his really cool and funny artwork

Till next time fellow gamers...

and have a Merry Christmas!!!

Your Own Dream Match: Video Game Crossovers

If you were given a chance to pick characters for your dream match, who would it be? you know what I mean, picking two of your favorite comics, anime, movie or video game characters to duke it out to the death to see who's the best of the best
Well all of us have our own wish list of dream matches, from the simple to the exaggerating matches, then we asked ourselves; when will we ever see this kind of matches?

Thank God for video games, they make the best things possible
now we can relive all of our dream matches over and over again
so without further adieu, let me introduce you to the world of Video Game Crossovers

So what's a Video Game Crossover?

Video Game Crossover (or Xover) is a gaming crossover that occurs when fictional characters, stories, settings, universes, or media in a video game meet and interact with each other(may it be a guest cameo or a playable character). These may exist as a gimmick if two separate games in question are developed by the same company. Otherwise, they may exist as a gag from a rival company.

Many types of genres are being used on gaming crossovers, this include RPGs (from the traditional to the turn based tactical),the action/platform ones and the most common and most popular of them all: fighting genres

Video game crossovers have several kinds of crossovers that have spawn thru the years and they are:

1st party (Interfranchise) video game crossovers - games in which the crossovers are within the same company.
Examples: Dissidia: Final Fantasy(Square-Enix), Super Smash Bros. series (Nintendo), Warriors Orochi (Toei), Marel Ultimate Alliance (Marvel Comics/Activision), Justice League Heroes (DC Comics/Warner Bros. Interactive)

3rd party (Intrafranchise) video game crossovers - games which have crossovers from two or more separate companies.
Examples: Namco x Capcom, SNK vs. Capcom

Comic book/video games crossovers - Video games that have comic book franchise characters encountering or facing off against other comic book franchise characters or third-party video game characters in a crossover video game or as a guest character in a third-party video game.
Examples: Marvel vs. Capcom, Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe

Cartoon/video game crossovers - Video games that have cartoon franchise characters encountering or facing off against other cartoon franchise characters or video game characters in a crossover video game or as a guest character in a third-party video game.
Examples: Kingdom Hearts series

Manga/anime crossovers - Video games that have manga franchise characters or anime franchise characters encountering or facing off against other manga or anime franchise characters in a crossover video game.
Examples: Jump Superstars, Super Robot Wars series

Why make a Video Game Crossover?

There's two reasons for it: as a gift for the fans and to make a truce with rival companies.

A gift for the fans

Companies like Capcom and Square-Enix knows how to show their love to their fans, by making a game where their favorite characters beat the hell out of each other till one of them screams uncle. This is also another cheap and easy way for game developers to cash in from the fans when they're running out of ideas for a new game.

There are also chances that the developers will add characters from their previous games, where some of them are not that famous, to give them a chance to be spotlighted once more.

To make a truce with rival companies

The greatest thing that a crossover game can do is to promote good will with game developers, especially on rival companies and developers, some good examples are Capcom/SNK and Nintendo/Sega. Ninetendo and Sega were arch rivals for the past decade in the gaming industry, while Mario (Nintendo) is gaining the upper hand, Sonic (Sega) is quickly losing its touch in the console wars. But they managed to join forces for an Olympic video game in multiple consoles. In the realm of fighting games, Capcom and SNK are the two companies that reign supreme, they've also been at each other's throat for quite some time. They finally settled their differences when they merged to create Capcom Vs. SNK.

Does this really made an impact on gamers?

Yes, It really made an impact on gamers, as this gave them a chance to pick for their favorite characters in a battle against or alongside another of their favorites. And not just characters, new mechanics and gameplay has been added (like the now famous "Tag" system of the Capcom Vs. series) to make the game more interesting.

So what's next for the Gaming Crossover?

Well more games are being released as of now, like the Castlevania fighting game; Castlevnia Judgement for the Nintendo Wii from Konami where you can relive the classic Castlevania characters again and again.

Square-Enix is also releasing a fighting game based on the Final Fantasy seires called Dissidia: Final Fantasy for the Playstaion Portable, with a mix of fighting and RPG gameplay.

Midway also joined the crossover craze with their latest game: Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe.
This is the first crossover game that Midway created a with DC Comics,it may be similar that to Capcom Vs. Marvel, but this time with Fatalities. Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe is available in the Playstation 3 and the Xbox 360.

And finally Capcom just released the spiritual successor to the famous Capcom Vs. series called Tatsunoko Vs. Capcom for the arcades and Nintendo Wii where legendary anime characters of Tatsunoko (Gatchaman and Tekkaman) duke it out against the elites of Capcom (Ryu (Street fighter) and Batsu (Rival Schools) .

And more and more crossover games will come out in the future, the question is...
what kind of crossover can the developers will offer to us?
hmmm a Sony vs. Nintendo vs. Microsoft fighting game would be nice ^^

Till next time gamers...

The GE ph Community Outing Aftermath

Last monday, December 1,2008 at the Redbox in Trinoma held the GE ph Community Outing which was organize by Artaxerxes and Blacksword (yours truly)
orginally the usual gathering was attend by the GE bloggers, but now cosplayers and ordinary GE gamers are now joining the outing

*pictures courtesy of NineMoons

All are serious in the discussion

To my surprise, a lot of players really showed up for the Community Outing, this proves that there are still a lot of GE players in the Philippines.
And for the first time, players from both servers (Rembrandt and Bach) showed up to meet and greet in the said outing
where they share in-game experience and also discussed about how to improve the GE community

One of them is the lack of promotional gimmicks of E-Games for GE (like game installers and poster distribution), because of this problem, there are very few new players playing the game. Another is the problem with the 70k gpoints, the epoints to gpoints don't have the 70k gpoint denomination. since the new CM of GE; CM Aethirn, handles 3 games at the same time (Granado Espada, Supreme Destiny and the upcoming game, NosTale) he's having a hard time managing GE.

Many ideas have been discussed on how to promote GE in the Philippines, one them include the creation of the GE Cosplay Group (you can check their thread here) and some promotional gimmicks like creating postcards with the picture of the cosplayers

During the trivia contest

All are waiting for the next question

After the discussion, we held a trivia contest to the players who attended the gathering
we given out difficult trivia question, the prize for the contest is an Item of The Month code
and congratulations to the winners

Bach Server
First Row, from left to right: Dyosabelle, Kulangot, WellingX, needblabla, WaxMurderer (real owner), Crymetime, Riskbreaker, OfAndreus, LinkShot
Back, from left to right: WaxMurderer (second user), Panfilicious

Rembrandt Server

First Row, from left to right: Clairemont, Serpentes, EldeonRose, Fiksdotter, Artaxerxes, Mitchin, Blacksword, Rivendel, Kincaid, Flihight

The venue may be crowded but we all still enjoyed in this gathering

Thanks to all who participated in the GE Community Outing
Don't worry, there will be more gatherings in the future

Special thanks to CM Hrin for the codes and support and also to CM Aethrin
and also to IAH Games for bringing this wonderful game into Southeast Asia

Until next time, fellow gamers...

many joined the contest, including me

below is my suggested title names

0 Posts - Cadet of the New World

and to my surprise, my entry was chosen as the winner of the contest

now you'll see you new titles as of this moment

you can check the contest thread here

I'd like to thank the Community Crews and Lorenza for the contest
and also to the contestants for their creative and funny title ideas

Giant Controllers!!!

Ahhh gotta love those classic controllers, those simple curve design, those two or sometimes four buttons just for playing those timeless classic games

and now some players are making their own controllers, and the difference is....

it's gotten alot bigger than before

if I mean bigger....I really mean BIGGER

just check out this SNES controller from coolest-gadgets.com

As their tribute to Nintendo's greatest gaming console, they decided to create a giant-sized controller, and the best of all, it works as a real SNES controller
now you relieve the Super Mario World, Supe Metroid and other SNES greats with this humongous controller

Another controller is from ultra-awesome.blogspot.com

This time it's for Nintendo's very first gaming console: the Nintendo Entertainment System or NES for short

and this controller is not only used as a coffee table, it's also a storage space for your gaming stuffs and... it's also works as a controller

Now that's what I call "Hardcore Gamers"

more cool stuff next week
see yah...

Nope, I'm not gonna quit blogging
But yes, I may be quitting Granado Espada early next year
but fret not, I'll still be making some features and updates on GE
and best of all, I'm now posting more on gaming and not just on GE

I've been itching to post something interesting on other games, but since my blog is a GE fanblog, It have to be more on GE generally.

Now I'm about to leave the GE world in a few weeks (well of course I need to promote my main team to expert rank first before I formally retire), I can now focus more on games outside GE

New articles
New games to try
and New layout ^_^

so stay tuned for more better and more wider coverage of the gaming world and some crappy to awesome stuff in the internet and the real world

right here in the Reimaru Files...Files straight form an avid gamer

Granado Espada featured in a School Publication

Last Saturday, November 15,2008, while grinding my main team to expert, one of my classmate just told me that Granado Espada was featured in latest issue of The Cursor, the official student publication of FEU-East Asia College (which is my school)

After that, I managed to grab a copy from our school to check it out,
it turns out that the writer played in the US version of GE (which is Sword of The New World)
where he also mentioned in the article, there is also some corrections in the said article.
K2 Network is not a Korean developer, it's the publisher of Sword of the New World (US GE)
IMC Games is the Korean developer that created GE and IAH games is the publisher of the South East Asia GE ( IAH is in charge of the SEA server which includes the Philippines, E-Games' job is to promote GE in our country)

Article from The Cursor

Kudos to the writer for featuring this very unique and amazing game, I hope this will help promote GE to my school ^_^

The Ups and Downs of Granado Espada

After the release of Granado Espada V2.9

there are many things that causes some violent responses in the sudden change on the game

one of them is the removal of the 15 days and 30 days Combat Manual (which gives players +25%, 50% and 100% experience points increase) and left only the one day Combat Manual

and even the Pioneer Kits which includes the 15/30 days CMs was also removed from the Item Mall
now many players complain because of the sudden removal since it's very expensive to buy a single day CMs than buying the 15/30 days CMs

and because of this, many complain threads are sprouting in the GE forums, and now the admins have posted their reason on the removal of the CM

*Thread posted by Mordial

cGE has 15 days and 30 days CM/TM.
kGE has 15 days and 30 days CM/TM.

However, if you realized, all of them are running at 5%, 10%, 15%, 20% EXP increase only.

Here's the proof.

If you recall, sGE is running at 50%, 80% and 100% EXP increase.

Here's the proof again.

Now, tell me, if you were IMC, and sGE was running that EXP event in addition with this CM/TM that were different from the other regions, what would you do?

The point is, we fought for the EXP event to be permanent coz we felt that the SEA gamers are more casual and that the increased EXP will help many SEA gamers get to the end-game content easier.

We managed to fight for it, but the backlash was that they wanted to remove ALL the CM/TM and replace them with the 5%, 10%, 15% and 20% version like the other regions.

Of course, we didn't want that bcoz that would definitely make things difficult for many of our SEA gamers. So we had a truce with IMC, and that was to let us keep the 50%, 80% and 100% version in a shorter period.

Another problem is the lack of update in the Item of the Month,
the current IotM is still the 40 pcs. Enhancement Boosters (which increases the success rate to enhance your weapons and armors) which was implemented last July

and yet it's already four months and still there's no poll thread (which is posted every month to vote on which item will be implemented on the upcoming month) for the Item of the Month

Well of course this doesn't mean that it's all bad news,
GE SEA/ANZ is still giving us some good news

and one of them is the Epoints to Gpoints conversion.
This means that you can purchase E-Games' Epoints card and turn it into Granado Espada Gpoints, no need to look for hard to reach GE cards just to top up your gpoints

*you can visit the GE thread of the epoints to gpoints discussion here

and also there's an announcement from CM Aethrin that Filipino GE players can purhcase the 70k gpoints in the future (so let's cross our fingers for that)

*sources from NineMoons' Post

Another good news is that the Adelina's Booty Search just made an update,
and surprisingly, the loots are really worth the wait

lots of players are overwhelmed with the recent update on the loots

forum discussion on the Adelina's Booty Search

so what's the future for GE?

well aside from the latest V3.1 patch in Korea GE, NineMoons posted about the beta test of GEMOCON; which is a GE web controller where you can access your characters remotely, KGE and JGE will be the first to try this new program. For more info you can visit NineMoons' post

I'll give more updates on GE in the future

till next time....

The Art of AFK

I know that playing a game for very long period of time can be very tiring especially in MMOs where you have to grind grind grind for eternity till you reach the highest level or obtain the rarest weapon.

But some games like Granado Espada can let players grind their characters without having to control them all the time.

Cat on guard

This is what we call "AFK gaming"
AFK is the acronym for Away from Keyboard where in gaming the player is letting his/her game unattended for a period of time and then he/she just check his/her avatar's status once in a while, the player is still using the computer but he/she is attending to some tasks like surfing the net, typing some documents, or even playing another game

Hardcore players tends to AFK overnight to continue the level progress of their avatars while
other players just do it to ease the boredom of grinding their avatars for a very long time.

One of the benefits when AFKing is that you can do other things aside from grinding all day (like taking a bath or even go to school or work ^_^) and still your avatars are gaining experience, the down side is that they can't loot items

For the players who want to AFK in their games should take note of some of the dos and don'ts:

  • AFK in a Internet Cafe unattended, ask someone you knew to check on your avatars once in a while
  • Let anyone you don't know use the computer while your AFKing at the Internet Cafe, ask someone you know to check your avatars just in case someone's messing with your PC
  • Download a large number of files, it can cause lag on your game
  • Open alot of applications in your computer (unless your PC has alot of memory and very fast processor), not just it causes lag to the game, it could crash your game client
  • Let your PC be on for a very long time, it can reduce the life span of your computers
  • AFK on high spawned areas unless your avatars can really survive on those areas, so you don't have to worry on finding a spot when your avatars got killed

  • Let your PC take a rest after using it for a long time, especially if you let in afk for around 12-24 hours
  • Put your game into window mode, it'll be easier for you to monitor your game while your using a different application in your computer
  • Check your avatars once in a while, you'll never know if your avatars was already disconnected or dead for a long time
  • Stock up your avatar's supplies (ammos, pots, etc.), so they won't be sitting there doing nothing for a very long time
  • Set your video settings to minimum while you AFKing, this to lessen the lag on your game when you are multitasking in your PC

Let the screwdriver do the work

Now you know the dos and don'ts, it's time to check on what things you can do while your AFKing on your PC

Surf the net
You can visit different forums like Granado Espada's Official Forum
while reading the forums, you can get additional info, tips and guides for your characters and get a chance to discuss with other gamers.

or you can visit some of GE's fan blogs like mine for example or even from Ninemoons, Desanggria and many others.

Play other games
Yes you can play another game as long as your PC has good specs to run two games at a time, some of my faction mates used to play Diablo II while they were AFKing at topolo durga, others try to play emulator games and if you have a really good PC, you can even play Warcraft 3 games like the famous DotA (Defense of the Ancients).

Or if your PC can't run another game, why not try playing web browsing games, some good games like miniclip.com, armorgames.com and newgrounds.com and help you waste some time while your in AFK mode, or if you want to play rpg games in the internet, try Dragon Fable, Adventure Quest and Mech Quest.

Watch videos or listen to music
If your tired of surfing the net and playing flash games, how about watching some cool videos
from YouTube to watch some GE videos and machinimas or view the latest video game trailers at GameTrailers.

You can just listen to music while you just sit there and relax and watching your avatars kill monsters, visit imeem.com or use your Yahoo! Messenger music player.

There you have it, now you know all the important things when AFKing, off course AFKing does not only be effective in Granado Espada, this can be used in other online games

and don't forget to let your computer take a break once in a while since your computer is taking all the beating.

Till next time... happy gaming

Gate Keeper Down @ Carracci + Chaos Requiem Info

At around 4pm last Saturday,September 13, The Gate Keeper that's residing at the Underground Cave in Bahamas has finally been taken down in Carracci Server.

The person who took the last blow on the Gate Keeper was no other than Nostradamus, Faction Leader of the Eminence Faction. Along with the members of Eminence, they defeated the Gate Keeper in around 20 minutes with 3 squads.

If you're wondering how strong the Gate Keeper is, my factionmate dinsly manage to take a screenshot of the Gate Keeper's stats

This is the second time a Gate Keeper was defeated in GE SEA/ANZ (the first was at the Caravaggio server), and with the downfall of the enormous giant, the players of Carracci can now access the levels of Tierra Putrafecta and Chaos Requiem.

As the gate opens at Tierra Putrafecta, we ventured further inside the map to check on what's lurking inside the forgotten area, this is what we have encountered...

The hard part in Chaos Requiem is that all of the monster's AR and DR are around 60 above,
so Veterans going solo in this map have no chance if they don't have at least 60 AR and DR,it's also recommended that Veterans should should bring along some more players to join the hunt on Chaos Requiem to increase your chance to survive, as for the Experts, they can survive in this map as long as they bring along a tanker on their team if they have less than 60 AR and DR.
