Hey everyone this is my review of Echo of Soul,

There isn’t really much to say because… there really isn’t much to go over in the game after 29 levels of it. I was going to stop at 30 and give an evaluation but I just couldn’t make it there for honest and obvious reasons. The story itself is forgettable but the intro cutscene is really nice. That’s… one of the few things that’s great about it. In fact I’ll go over what’s good about it first since that’ll be quick.

The Good
The world is nice and large, it’s huge. You can see many vast different environments, outposts, towns, caves, dungeons, tunnels and what have you. So you’ll have a big place to explore like a giant playground. Read More →

The soul system in Echo of Soul is used to provide players with large buffs with relatively little effort. When a player kills a monster, they receive one chaos soul. These chaos souls are collected automatically, and they are placed in the player’s Soul Satchel.

Echo of Soul

Within the Soul Satchel, the black orb shows the number of chaos souls that the player currently possesses and the max amount that they can hold. Above that, you will see the four types of purified souls: Hope, Innocence, Courage, and Peace. Players can transform their chaos souls into one of these four purified souls through two methods:

Method One – Solo Purification

Never, ever, ever use this method. Seriously. It’s half as efficient as the second method available to players. However, should you not care, you’re welcome to solo purify your chaos souls. To do this, if you are near a Soul Sanctum (you can usually find one where waypoints are located), click on the soul purification button on the bottom of the Soul Satchel. For every two chaos souls you have, this will give you one random purified soul. Read More →

Blizzard Entertainment is certainly not happy about the rampant cheating that is plaguing its online game “World of Warcraft” as it had jut disclosed on Thursday that it is banning over 100,000 gamers for a duration of six months. The massive banning is caused by duping in player versus player (PvP) battlegrounds with third party programs and interrupt-scripts.

A screenshot of a GM chat posted on Imgur says that the player suspensions will endure for six months and will affect at least 100,000 accounts. The developer and publisher of the game also posted this message on its website last Thursday. The message reads: “We’ve recently taken action against a large number of World of Warcraft accounts that were found to be using third-party programs that automate gameplay, known as ‘bots.’ We’re committed to providing an equal and fair playing field for everyone in World of Warcraft, and will continue to take action against those found in violation of our Terms of Use. Cheating of any form will not be tolerated.”

In an earlier report furnished by Daily Dot report says that the “bots” are software programs that automatically perform specific processes in the online role-playing game that will allow the cheaters to steer clear from repetitive tasks to gain fresh game content. Read More →

I wanted to pick this class up. Because I never played all the way through in Tera. This seems like a good time to start. Basically the gunner is very fun. You have a lot of movement control and burst. All of the skills seem like they were thought out. But I am a little weary how this class works with the other classes.

Also remember that right now is double Xp until early June. So why not give this game a try? It’s freetoplay and increased leveling with a new class. Tera’s combat has always been one of the better systems out there.

Other events are going on right now as well. Two events actually lead you to free mounts. You also get a free mount right now for leveling. And you get gear making life easier to help you level faster. I know some people don’t like their hands held. But this time I’m taking that help. Because I want to give the game a valid chance. So give it a whirl if you’re looking for something else to play. Main page link is the first on the top.

Square Enix has created a gameplay video for a Street Fighter-style Final Fantasy XIV fighting game called Ultimate Fight Final Fantasy XIV. But don’t get your hopes up. It’s not real.

The mock gameplay video was created by Final Fantasy XIV main scenario writer Kazutoyo Maehiro in his spare time just for fun, it seems.

Square Enix also released a benchmark trailer for Final Fantasy XIV: Heavensward. You’ll be able to download the benchmark tomorrow to see how your PC will handle the expansion when it’s released, but if you just want to see what it looks like check out the video below. Read More →

Big changes are in the works for Landmark! We recently had a chance to sit with Terry Michaels, Darrin McPherson, and Michele Cagle of Daybreak to review the upcoming changes to the game, as well as participate in an open forum for any questions that might arise from the announcements. Let’s discuss quickly what’s upcoming, so you can get an idea.
Foremost on most people’s minds is the upcoming character and claim wipe. The date is tentatively set for May 4, but may change as the developers need. There are many reasons facilitating this wipe, however, the team ensures it will be the last one required. So while your current Landmark characters will be removed, it’s an excellent chance to start anew and take a look at the changes that will be implemented.

One of the changes Daybreak is making is a complete revamp of the new player experience. They want to make it much more approachable, letting people new to Landmark ease into the game. Achievements have been completely revamped to facilitate the change, becoming clearer and easier to follow. The Daybreak crew wants players of any skill level to enjoy the game, not just the die hard.

In addition to the new player experience, ongoing combat changes are being made to make fighting much more fluid and natural. Crafting is being simplified to make it easier to find and create recipes. Material requirements for building have been changed, reduced, or reworked completely to allow players much more freedom in their imaginations. Brand new islands, biomes, props, and a new race of large humans are all being introduced as well. Read More →

Welcome to the world of Aura Kingdom Online. Published by Aeria Games this anime inspired mmorpg blends a fantasy world with anime graphics and does it very well. With a very fluid combat system, a diverse skill tree and a different take on the pet system, Aura Kingdom should satisify players who have been craving that anime type mmorpg.
Your journey in Aura Kingdom starts off as you are thrust into what seems to be a battle between humans and demons. Your first task is to defeat the boss that threatens the lives of those around you. It’s fairly easy to do so since your level is much higher than a beginner and the main character’s equipment is much better then what you would usually start off with.

After defeating the demon you wake up in the starting town feeling a bit dizzy. Was it a dream..or reality? Only time will tell as you progress through the storyline.

Character Creation
I was very surprised with not only the options in character creation but, most importantly, the amount of classes Aura Kingdom has. There’s a total of eight classes and a ninth class that has yet to be released. These classes include Guardian, Duelist, Ravagar, Wizard, Sorcerer, Bard, Grenadier and Gunslinger. After selecting your class, I choose a Duelist, you can then customize the style of your character. Aura Kingdom provides you with a bit more options then usual to help distinguish yourself from other players. While creating your character you have ten different hair options and nine different face options. I was a little surprised that we didn’t have the option to make our character taller, shorter and skinny or large as well but, to me, it’s not a huge flaw as usually there’s reasoning behind it. After picking your hair color and eye color you are then taken to the Eidolon selection screen. I’ll talk about this in greater detail later in the article. Read More →

With the Invasion: Nexus patch, WildStar is introducing a one-drop PvP Season, 1.5, allowing the development team to transition to Season 2 by gathering community feedback and data.
Season 1.5 will scale item statistics in PvP instances based on the maximum item level value set on the instance, only scaling down items higher than the level maximum. PvP rating now has a few “floors” which prevent players from dropping below certain thresholds (400, 800, 1200, 1600, and 2000).

Rewards will also be different: only 3v3 arena teams will earn titles, achievements, and items. Participators in 3v3 will get a bag of starter season 2 gear, while the top 5% will get a higher level season 2 set with a special pet. Players must participate in at least 25 rated matches in order to qualify for rewards.
