futurama final fantasy vii

21-Nov-08

a marvelous combination of two of my favorite plots players:

fired up over mega man 9 on xbox live

29-Sep-08

two days until the nostalgic platformer blast fest commenses. I most enjoyed mega man games 2 through 6 with another go at it sometime in the X series though which I can’t recall. it is already out on wii and playstation network and coming to xbox live 10/2/08.

officially enlisted the xbox 360 army

07-Aug-08

taken by the news about final fantasy xiii coming to xbox 360 – I am definitely a FF fanatic – and this timely slickdeal for a black xbox 360 elite bundle ($300+tax, that’s ~$150 off) I just couldn’t resist. bye bye free time and extraneous bike trips… hmm… hope I didn’t make a mistake! :)

diablo three cometh

28-Jun-08

the diablo 3 trailer: a gameplay / narrative vid: My estimate D3 release date — Q4 2010*. * based on nothing scientific. More info and eye candy over at the official blizzard diablo III page.

“I Wanna Be The Guy” – old school platformer of insane difficulty

21-Feb-08

I Wanna Be The Guy is the most macochistic 2d sidescrolley-platformery-adventure game I’ve ever seen or heard of. it doesn’t appeal to me really, but I’m still fairly impressed by people who are great at these things. respect. like this guy, he has crazy mad platformer skill: as seen from the vid, iwbtg is inspired […]

Outspark makers of Fiesta – company & store update

17-Jan-08

I’ve blahogged previously many times about this Fiesta thing. it’s going to be big – already at a claimed one million users. nevermind the fact that I haven’t played in weeks, I have some friends that are as hardcore dedicated to it as those WoW’ing fanatical friends most everyone knows at least one. according to […]

on fiesta, and getting burned out…

30-Nov-07

I haven’t played in over a week! maybe it’s that my guild is on avg, nearly 10 lvls higher than I (the elven archer of yore), and not all that in a hurry to help me out (they have a pretty consistent group of ppl… I’m not one of them) and my other char (27 […]

ridiculous amont of Fiesta “botting” and the cure

27-Oct-07

found this over at fiestafan.com … badly drawn but very true to the point! I’ve done this a couple times with great joy as the outcome. it’s time we take back Moonlight Tomb from the bots! fight!!!

Fiesta Guild Action

20-Oct-07

as an archer, soloing is not my forte. therefore, I am somewhat use to going days on end without a group so basically no progression. yesterday I was fortunate enough to find some cool people to group with. as we went along, I was even more fortuate to receive a whisper from a guild leader […]

Fiesta level 30 … money woes continue

06-Oct-07

when you reach 30, you are thrown into a realm of uber spending, especially if your skills are backlogged. I’m up to ~25s, and basically need another 10s to buy everything I need to catch up to my level. the main disadvantage of the Fiesta economy over WoW’s is the lack of an offline ability […]

outspark fiesta gold farming update

25-Sep-07

I have noticed a somewhat steady increase on cracking down on the annoyance these groups poise to the players of Fiesta. it is also likely an unnecessary draw on outspark’s server resources. anyway, it seems like the GM’s are being more vigilant in banning the people as they are seen/reported. just today I saw a […]

outspark ‘investigating gold spammers’ in fiesta

16-Sep-07

it was bound to happen, a somewhat “official” statement. they offer little info but who’s to blame them. I’m still suspicious of their involvement in the gold selling. the message reads as follows: Attention Fiesta Players, The Game Master team has been doing some investigations on the issue of “Gold Spammers” running rampantly in our […]

enhancement woes

11-Sep-07

outspark’s fiesta draws you in by displaying cutesy animey pretty 3d worlds and characters along with many shiney weapons and armors. but as for the latter-est, do not try if you are prone to depression. I earned the clever title “Unlucky enhancer” after losing my 4th piece of equipment.. OK, that’s fine, most of those […]

outspark “new” revenue model is gold farming?

10-Sep-07

outspark may be making money afterall. after skimming threads such as this, basically identical to most the floods of complaints, it makes me go hmm as there is no offical statement on the matter (afaik.) it is known that: outspark has numerous foreign offices – at least one other “official” in Seoul, KR (source). or, […]

apolino? uh, new fiesta server and junk

06-Sep-07

so, I blew most of an otherwise unproductive day playing, oh yes, fiesta. of notable, uh, note: – my main reached Hawk Archer level… (the level up quest was much easier as Mage for some reason) – outspark opened a new server, finally. – the patch that came with the new server, occasionally sends you […]
