We’re a little late to the party but don’t forget to download your FREE gamer pic and avatar item today!
XBox LIVE turned 10 years old officially on November 15th. This is a pretty big deal so Microsoft has several awesome (and some random) games available for 50% OFF for two days. That means tonight is it! Peggle, Castle Crashers, and other great games are up for grabs on the cheap now.
We’re disappointed that they’re no celebrating for longer but there is an opportunity to enter the sweepstakes/giveaway and possibly win one of the VERY limited edition XBox 360 console bundles. We reckon they may be similar to the bundles we saw in Europe back in February 2012.
For me, this is a positive social signal that Microsoft is not abandoning the XBox 360 just yet. Really, I’m not ready to commit to new hardware unless it’s new upgrades for my gaming PC.. Or a new laptop. LOL
In any case, here is a link to help ya out:
BTW, I met Major Nelson at the Halo 3 launch in NYC a few years back. Really cool guy and as down-to-earth as they come! Keep an eye on his blog and podcast. I’m sure more goodies are bound to come!
Yogizilla signing out for now!

Yu-Gi-Oh! still rocks my socks!
I have been uber busy (and distracted) but the past few months have been so much fun. I’ve had the opportunity to jam with my kids and Yu-Gi-Oh! Fans of all ages, thanks in part to the Augusta Book Exchange and their Sunday Yu-Gi-Oh! Tournaments.
Box busters are still in the plans but what I am looking to do is buy a few boxes of current-gen Yu-Gi-Oh! cards and share some of our personal favorites. We are looking at Order of Chaos, Generation Force, and Hidden Arsenal booster packs, amongst others. That will be in the more distant future, though.
For a look at some of my more recent Yu-Gi-Oh! faves and “mini busters”, check out these posts:
Yu-Gi-Oh! deck building is still one of my favorite things but it’s tons of fun to try out new recipes too!
If you happen to be in the Augusta, Georgia or CSRA (Central Savannah River Area), I invite you to come check out the Augusta Book Exchange in Martinez, near the Bobby Jones Expressway Wal-Mart (which we like to call Wally World since it’s like a amusement park for some of us locals LOL).
This place reminds me of my favorite geek shop in my hometown of NYC: The Compleat Strategist. InsiderPages describes TCS as a place where it’s cozy and easily to lose oneself for hours. I agree and the Augusta Book Exchange is the same experience.

Guardian Heroes FTW!
Looking for a Guardian Heroes co-op pard? Add Yogizilla on XBox LIVE! We can help each other out and squash tons of baddies together!! I’ll be removing some friends, especially those that think “Guardian Heroes is wack”. *wink*
Samuel Han of Guardian Heroes HD
When I saw Sega re-releasing classic games from the Dreamcast and Saturn eras, I got excited.. But I never expected Guardian Heroes to come back. After the initial announcement (and being teased by the undownloadable game in the marketplace), I waited patiently for Guardian Heroes HD to drop.
Guardian Heroes HD is now officially out on the XBox LIVE Marketplace – REJOICE!
Guardian Heroes For Newbies
If you’re new to the game, think of it as Castle Crashers with more epic battles, arena combat (hordes of enemies provided for your power leveling needs), deeper RPG elements, an insane combo system rivaling the Street Fighter and Marvel Vs. Capcom series, and multi-branching storylines. This game is multiplayer bliss, whether you play locally or online. What the game foregoes in terms of a deep story it makes up for with a fluid battle system, unlockable characters, and tons of replay value.
What makes Guardian Heroes special is gameplay, not story.. Though I find the story suitable for this type of game (it’s worth getting the seven different endings). When people ask what the game’s about, I ask them if they’re looking for a story or tons of fun. Guardian Heroes is in the latter camp.
I’d put this game ahead of the Streets of Rage, Gauntlet, and Golden Axe series (each of which I loved greatly – I particularly loved Guantlet IV on the Sega Genesis/Mega Drive), mainly because there are so many more moves and combos to unleash, adding much more depth to go alongside the rich co-op gameplay and arcade feel. Guardian Heroes may appear to be a mere button masher but the battle system is quite refined. In the remix, they’ve added air dashes to make aerial assaults even easier to chain.

We’ll approach this DPO update as a FAQ (here is the official DPO – Duel Pass Online – FAQ) because I feel I owe you all some answers!
- Where is the fabled DPO Yu-Gi-Oh! Box Buster Extravaganza? I hope to get to this next week. I still have all the packs and boxes sealed. Believe me, I can’t wait to see what cards I got. I may very well release the content as rich text and add image-enhanced reviews to the article and the DPO Card Showcase.
- Where and what are the scantily-clad wimminz? Barring any setbacks with my other creative and project work, I should have two major site updates this week, including an Anime-style “Bad Apple” tribute and a look at why Mass Effect is one of the sexiest (or seksiest) video games of all time. We like Anime women too (light clothing optional) so we’ll definitely provide sufficient content to that end. In fact, my good friend and fellow NoF, KiNgDeeM, found High School of the Dead and that seems promising. I’ve also enjoyed Rin recently (highly recommend it if you can’t deny the guilty pleasure of Anime wimminz).
- Why won’t you duel me? I love you guys but I don’t do webcam duels. Find me on XBox LIVE. I’ll even clean up my friends list if you’re enough of a video game geek or Anime geek.
- Where have you been? I’ve been busy tweaking Y3B
and preparing to not only migrate the blog but also syndicate content and create off-page content to promote my creative works, branding, and geeky endeavors. I have to pay the bills eventually, after all.
In a few words, I have an abundance of ideas and inspiration but a lack of “free time”. NoF social gaming activity has always kept me busy as well, which is why we’re trying to recruit and expand aggressively to spread the balance of power and leadership. I love this blog. I love you guys. I LOVE you’re quirky and sometimes insightful comments! Weaving DPO into the NoF Network (RoNoF) is definitely part of my master plan so be patient, DPO fans!
Now, if you’re interested in geeky guest blogging on DPO or syndicating select content here, the qualifiers are as follows:
- Content must focus on the following geeky topics: video games, Anime, Manga/comics, fantasy and sci-fi TV shows, TCG/CCG tips and strategies, card reviews, and the like.
- I’ll gladly feature unique geeky stuff on here and link back to you!
- Each entry should have at least one nice image embedded in it as our readers LOVE eye candy.
- Gallery-style entries such as card showcases and box busters are VERY much welcomed!
- Speaking of galleries, I always find it fun to search for cosplay and gamer photos since it gives a face to the online game community. If you can build upon that, even better!
- Videos are good but keep load times, RSS readers, and mobile browsers in mind!
- Scantily-clad wimminz are allowed but no nudity (kids find this site quite easily and I don’t want parental flames).
- You must have a WordPress OpenID to get set up with editor access.
- You should become a fan and link, share, and comment away.
- Replying to comments is optional but strongly encouraged – let’s get conversations going!
- A comfort level with creating links on-page and off-page is a MUST to increase our audience participation.
As part of the perks, you’ll become part of our mastermind group and get to be involved in some cool projects. You’ll also have the opportunity to increase your own audience and meet cool like-minded geeks. DPO currently gets an adverage of 100 hits per day, with a good balance of new and old visitors. Right now, our goal is to minimize bounce rate by providing great content for a wider audience, not just Yu-Gi-Oh! fans, though that is still our core.
To apply, simply comment on this article and share it using our handy-dandy buttons. I look forward to working with the New DPO Team! More importantly, I hope to keep DPO fresh and fun for our returning supporters!

Don’t forget that this coming Saturday, May 7th 2011n is Free Comic Book Day. Naturally, you can’t get your favorite Manga since only select comics will be free but the official web site can give you all the details about local shops and comics supporting this yearly event. If you’re like me and you’re out of touch with comic books and graphic novels, this may be your chance to catch up and meet fellow Anime and comic/Manga geeks. It’s also a great opportunity to support small shops near YOU!
FCBD, Every 1st Saturday in May
Since 2002, millions, if not billions, if comics have been given away. Who doesn’t like free stuff? This is a great way for lesser-known geek content to be discovered so who knows what you’ll find. If you support this awesome event, please leave a comment and share your favorite comics with us!
The Tick Supports Free Comic Book Day
Don’t forget to blog this and share with friends (we wouldn’t mind some backlinks, likes, and blogroll adds, either)!

I’ve noticed a lot of comments that are either copy-and-paste self-promoting junk or full of foul language. Let’s keep things relevant. Post about Anime, Pokemon, Yu-Gi-Oh!, and/or video games. If I didn’t approve your comments, it’s probably cause it seemed spammy or inappropriate.
That said, I appreciate all the cool comments and I’m trying hard to reply to everyone. Just a heads-up: I don’t do Skype or webcam duels. If you want to duel, challenge me via Yu-Gi-Oh! Online (PC) or Yu-Gi-Oh! Decade Duels (XBox 360). I’m always up for a friendly duel if work is not keeping me busy or I’m not distracted by XBox LIVE or the massive Netflix Anime Instant Play Collection.
I’ve said it before but I promise to expand the Card Showcase and do a HUGE Yu-Gi-Oh! Box Buster so be patient. I’m a very busy bear-lizard. Please leave a good comment and maybe you’ll win some Yu-Gi-Oh! Or Pokemon goodies.
Speaking of which, I still got some Pokemon goodies for interested parties. It’s pretty rare stuff so these won’t be freebies. Tweet me if interested. Add Yogizilla and NipplesOfFate, my gaming clan, on Twitter then message me to qualify! Be sure to share DPO with friends and like/link your favorite content on here! 8)
