Updates and stuffs...

Well, this past few weeks, I played plenty of games, web-based, MMORPG and single-player game :) Here's some very short reviews:

1. Elder Scrolls IV : Oblivion ( - Single Player RPG
Who doesn't know the awesomeness which is Oblivion ? Don't you dare call yourself Role Playing Gamers if you haven't tried this game !!! This game is just...awesome. Some people says that Oblivion feels too ..."console"-like. But i find it to my liking :) First, the game offers the freedom to do almost anything and to go anywhere you want. Second, the game offers a more simplified gameplay features (some may call this "dumbed-down" features), like Fast-Travel and the simplified HUD. There may be disagreement about these things, but "to each their own" , eh ?
Oblivion's graphic are just gorgeous !!! breathtaking landscapes fill the horizon and just waiting for you to explore them :) For those of you who like RPGs, you should try this game out..seriously ! I also found an interesting podcast you shoult check out and listen, over HERE.

2. RAN Online Indonesia ( - F2P MMORPG
I've spoke about this game on my last post. Tried the game until lvl 20 and my opinion is...Interesting, for awhile. At first, the idea of you being a high-school student and fight with students from other schools and level up by beating up hostile AI-Lowlifes is kind of interesting. But after a few hours of hitting and killing and hitting and killing and eating tons of bread, I got kind of bored. It's good that the game's free to play though, so I'm not protestin' :)

3. X-Kings (
Well, I already talk about this game before, but now that i'm much higher in the ranks I like this game even more. Plenty of technology to research, balancing Offense and Defense and choosing the right player to attack :) Try it out :) it's fun ^^

4. World of Dungeons (
A new web-based RPG game. The whole idea of the game is to create a dungeon exploring party and get some loot from dungeons. Plenty of Class and Races to choose from(if you pay) and forcing you to group is actually a nice idea (for a web-based game) so that you could (and should) interact with other players to create a party.

5. Star Wars Combine (
A simulation RPG for Star Wars fans :) This game is quite different from other web-based RPGs, because the gameplay is very complex. You play this game as if you're really living inside the Star Wars universe. The game is quite slow-paced so you don't have to check it out every hour or so. It's fun for those who likes to role-play.

Well, that's all the game i've played until now, let's go to the next random stuff :)
For those of you who like School Rumble, the second session dubbed "School Rumble Second Term" is released !!! for more info, check out (you can also download the movie there and check out their Wiki :) )

I guess that's all for now :)
cya ^^

The force is strong in this one :P

Well i got bored playing SEAL Online after 2-3 weeks and i got back to play Guild Wars casually. After a while I installed Star Wars : Knights of the Old Republic 2 again :) and this time, i'll finish it for sure (didn't finished the game the first time I bored somehow...).
Here's my character: Alina Valm, currently a Jedi Sentinel 15/Sith Lord 1 :)

And here's screenshot from the game:

On another note, i'm going to play Star Wars Role Play (d20 rule) with some friends :)
here's my character Avinash Raad Shankar, a Kaleesh Jedi Guardian: (what's with the name you say ? well, since Grievous' real name is Qymaen Jai Sheelal, i might as well use some hybrid Arabic-Indian names too right :P ? )
The pic is created by my friend Rosenkreuz (that's the link to her DeviantArt site up there)

Well that's all for now :P
cya later (most likely on 28-30 April, when Guild Wars : Factions came out)

Guild Wars Invitation contest winners and some random stuff

Okay, i received plenty of e-mails and 3 of the first e-mails are the winners :) I'll send the invitation immediately. Have fun at the preview event :)
For those of you who want to meet me in-game, my IGN is Katrina Bloodsteel. But most likely I'll be playing a new character (maybe a Ritualist), I'll name that character Rylia Bloodsteel (whisper this one if you can't contact my other char :) ).

Okay, now on to the next news. There's 2 new MMORPG coming to Indonesia and 1 "Big Thing" rumored to be coming later this year.

The first MMORPG that came out is SEAL Online, a "cute & cuddly"-type MMORPG. I test-play it with some of my friends, and if you guys could get pass the "cute & cuddly" part (or if you like "cute & cuddly" games) SEAL is a good game to play, it'll get somewhat repetitive at times, but still a nice game.

The next MMORPG which will be released is RAN Online. The international version of this game has been out for quite awhile. I've played on the international server for a few minutes (it's lagging like hell over there) and i think it might (can't decide with just 5 minutes of play time) be a good game, we should just wait and see :P (well anyway, i've signed for the closed beta). Click this link if you guys wanna check it out:

Now we get to the main info. There's a rumor (or fact ?) that one of the greatest MMORPG will be imported to Indonesia. You wanna know what it is ? yep, World of Warcraft !!! I was very shocked when i read about it in one of the local Online Game magazine. Some of my friends (including myself) are skeptical about this, but we shall wait and see.

That's all for now
see ya :P

Guild Wars : Factions Preview Event and Invitation Giveaway

Another Preview Event ? you betcha !
This time there'll be PvE !!! 4 missions will be available to play.
But there's one downside to this new event, you can't just make a new account and play like the last Weekend event.
For those who want to play in this Preview Event you must have a Guild Wars account, that means for those of you who already created an account at the last event can play and for those who already own a full retail Guild Wars account (like myself) can also play.

But what about those who doesn't have an account ?
Don't worry, Guild Wars players who owns a full account can send up to 3 invitations to other peoples.

So now let's get to the main part :)
I'm going to give away 3 invitations for free. But there's a catch, it's quite easy actually ^^
Just go to both of these links:
Fame Link
Referral Link

For the Fame Link, just click yes and it's finished :) (remember to make a screenshot as proof)
For the referral link, you just have to register under my ID, activate your account and login (i'll automatically know if you've done this).

Now, after you've done both of the tasks, send me an e-mail ( containing the screenshot from the clicked fame link and your username which u have registered under my ID.
Use "GW Invitation" as the subject or i'll ignore your e-mail :)
3 People who sent first will be rewarded an Invitation for the 14 day Preview Event :)

This contest ends 1 day before the Preview Event(March 24th) and i'll immediately send the invitation to the winners at that day.

Note: For more info on the event check out

Browser Based Games :)

Well, almost nothing to report :3
It's holiday and i'm just wasting time everyday :D
You know, the usual stuff, game mechanics design. Oh, i designed a new setting btw... it's unfinished right now, i'll post it here when it's done.
This new setting will be used for other "projects". A TCG(Trading Card Game), Browser Based RPG and a PnP RPG. (All of those projects are'nt commercial projects or anything, it's just my personal hobby).

On another note, i'm currently playing some pretty interesting Browser Based games. You should try these games if you're looking for something to play in your spare time.
Here's the list, in no particular order :
1. Imperia Online (
A great browser based strategy game, reminds me of Age of Empires (not exactly the same, but it's quite similar).

2. X-Kings (
For those of you who played Kings of Chaos, you'll like this game. It's a strategy game where you can research technology, train units and attack other players. You generate units from Support Points which you could get from other players, having a commander or from recruiting officers. This game is not as complex as Imperia Online, but it's still good :). Clink on the link up there to register as my officer. Don't worry, it's a win-win situation. Everyone gets SP :)

3. Phantasy RPG (
This Browser based RPG reminds me a bit of classic RPGs. You got an explorable world, turn-based RPG combat, pets, and plenty more. The only downside is that it take quite a while to load the site (with my connection :P ). Click the link up there to register as my follower. Or if you're not interested in playing/registering as my follower, at least click this link
to give my character some exp and crowne(gold) :)

4. The Crims (
A browser based game with n interesting setting, be a bad guy and rob someone, build a drug empire, act as a pimp or whatever you want. You could even win an X-Box 360 if you're good. Try it out :)

5. Mech Crusaders (
An RPG with a futuristic setting, be a commender of a mech army and fight to gain fame and fortune. I played this game since 1-2 years ago but stopped playing it for about a year, now i'm back, not because i'm bored but because this game is great :) (well ok, partly because i have nothing else to do :P)

6. Men & Dragons
For those of you who wanted a browser based game which doesn't take too much of your time, this is the game. This game is quite new and you play with 2 characters. Your first character is your knight, you use this character to attack other people's dragons, or hunt wild dragons for gold and items. Your second character, the dragon guards your treasury from other people's knight. Try it out, it's quite fun.

Well that's it for now, see ya later :)
