Priced at USD 49.90, the game will be on a 10% discount for the first week until the 31st.

Unfortunately, all DLC costumes will be sold separately unlike Switch’s free-for-all. All costumes will be on 20% discount as well.


Delay of an Animated Phantasy

Announced just not so long ago, apparently the anime of the popular MMORPG Phantasy Star Online 2 has been pushed forward to next year, instead of the scheduled October later the year…

However, the main visual and the anime production staff has been revealed during the TBS Anime Fiesta 2015 held earlier today.

From the roster, it looks like this anime will probably won’t end up a flop, as per the worry of many anticipated fans…  (more…)


Animating an Online Phantasy

As you may all know, I’ve played the MMORPG Phantasy Star Online 2 ever since its open beta.

Celebrating a Phantastic Valentine’s

It’s been a trio of years since I’ve started my immersive play on the MMORPG Phantasy Star Online 2.

I’m surprised I’m still in this game, logging in religiously, daily… despite my usual insistent solo/single play tendencies in my gaming habits, rejecting many online games all this while.

Anyway since the regular update from latter half of last month, the game lobby has been filled with giant bears, hearts and frilly decorations in celebration of Saint Valentine’s Day.

The Hood of an Assassin

I have always been a follower of the Assassin’s Creed series ever since its début, fascinated by its parody use of historical facts to combine with the open-end free-running/parkour game-play as well as its colourful casts of real and fictional historical figures…

We get to explore the rich culture of each period in the guise of each protagonist of the numbered games, from the enigmatic pre-Mentor Altaïr Ibn-La’Ahad of the Middle Age Crusades (Assassin’s Creed), to the charm of Ezio Auditore da Firenze of the Renaissance (Assassin’s Creed II, Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood, Assassin’s Creed: Revelations), to the conflicted Connor of the American Revolution (Assassin’s Creed III), and finally to the brutal Captain Edward Kenway of the Golden Age of Piracy (Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag)…

There are several more main and sub games in the series spreading across various platforms like Assassin’s Creed Liberation HD, the live action short Assassin’s Creed Lineage, 3DCG Assassin’s Creed Embers or even Assassin’s Creed The Fall comic series…

In short, the world of Assassin’s Creed is ever-expanding, with more games and others to come.
