Time for a Title Change

The Community Crew guys held a forum event a few weeks ago (23rd October 2008 - 6th November 2008) for a new forum title

the winner will recieve an Item of the Month and his/her very own unique forum title

many joined the contest, including me

below is my suggested title names

0 Posts - Cadet of the New World
10 Posts - New Recruit
50 Posts - Pioneer Settler
100 Posts - Town Guard
250 Posts - Monster Slayer
500 Posts - Dungeon Raider
750 Posts - Treasure Hunter
1,000 Posts - Veteran Pioneer
1,500 Posts - The Colony Leader
2,000 Posts - The Baron
4,000 Posts - Expert Pioneer
5,000 Posts - Hero of Uncharted Lands
7,500 Posts - The Grand Noble
10,000 Posts - The Great Legacy of Granado Espada

I noticed alot of forumers really lol'ed (laughing out loud) on town guard title, it may not fit right on the list, but it still give some bit of a funny twist to the list.

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

like this one

and after awhile i have my very own title

you may wonder why I prefer "The Legendary Noise Maker"
well since I always make quite a lot of noise on the Player-Organized Real Life Gatherings thread of the forums because of E-Games being stupid for sometimes ignoring the GE-PH community

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...

Welcome to the new Reimaru Files


before anything else, I would like to thank everyone for visiting and enjoying my blog for this past year.

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

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....
