2008 Address – New Year, New Fun!

Posted by Yogizilla on January 1, 2008

Hello all!

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone for the continued support and love! We love getting the cool content, links, and other ideas from you guys. Going into 2008, we all seem to have the same ideas and concerns about the direction of Yu-Gi-Oh! Online. Believe me: I am with you guys and gals – something needs to change! While we still have our shop open and love the entire Yu-Gi-Oh! universe (especially the unique community), I know that my Yu-Gi-Oh! dueling has declined in recent months. Hopefully 2008 will be different…

Adam, David, Moko, Yali, Taiyo, Lola_Girl, KiNgDeeM, and all our returning visitors… This one is dedicated to you! ^_^

( BTW,  why is it that some people say they duel only for money yet they won’t pay to duel online?  Seems like they may not be all that good if they’re not willing to put any money on the line.  Everyone knows that the most competitive tournaments are all in pay leagues with high stakes! =oP )

Yu-Gi-Oh! Online Duel Challenges – Get Ready!!!

Posted by Yogizilla on May 15, 2007

The stage for a great new era for Yu-Gi-Oh! has been set in 2007. With Yu-Gi-Oh! Online Duel Evolution providing new content every month and the recent release of Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2007, we can see a deliberate effort to bring the game to different types of gamers, not just the hardcore TCG players and Neutral Ground hobbits. I love how the online community for YGOO is evolving. There’s something for everyone. If you want free, cheesy duels, you can find one of many interest groups out there that do webcam duels but, if you want the complete events and community, there is no better choice than Yu-Gi-Oh! Online; yeah, I may be a bit biased because I just so happen to play the game and love every last bit of it!

With the coming Gunslinger events on Yu-Gi-Oh! Online May 18th and 19th it’s time to prepare! Tricky’s Magic and The Tricky are the cards to be awarded for 6-win and 7-win streaks, accordingly. If you are unfamiliar with how Duelist Trial and Gunslinger work, it’s simple: Duelist Trial awards you a rank depending on how many wins you get whereas Gunslinger is all about survival, or how long you can win without losing. In Gunslinger, the longer you last, the better the cards you get after each battle. If you lose lots of battle during the Gunslinger event, expect to get many copies of the same card. No worries – chances are you can trade them with some newbie later on!

Yugi VS. Kaiba: Who Wins??

Shonen Jump features the original unstoppable duelists of the Yu-Gi-Oh! universe. Years later, who would come out on top? We vote for Yugi.

 

Oh shizzle, Gunslinger is around the corner… It’s time to duel!

NDS Goodness: Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2007, Pokemon Diamond & Pearl

Posted by Yogizilla on May 13, 2007

Well, I couldn’t keep it up any longer. My Nintendo DS beckoned and I heeded it’s call. If you read my last blog entry, you know that I purchased a few awesome games after trying really hard not to budge. I simply must to discuss two in particular: Pokemon Pearl/Diamond and Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship 2007. Before I say anything, I want to let you guys know that these games are both good entries for new players so don’t be shy. If you like strategic gaming, role-playing games, TCGs, or anything of the sort, give these games a try. Hey – that rhymes!

Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2007

From the start, even the most casual Yu-Gi-Oh! fans may notice that this game is totally about the new wave of Yu-Gi-Oh! cards – the GX Series! While this is very much true, the beauty of this game is that, with over 1600 cards to collect, it is the most complete Yu-Gi-Oh! game to date, hence why it is the platform of choice for the World Championship coming up in June 2007! Duelists of all types can find something that appeals to them in this installment. I admit that there have been some lousy, lackluster installments in the series but this game returns to the grass roots of portable/handheld system Yu-Gi-Oh!: a focus on dueling, strategizing, and deck building. No worrying about exploring vast areas, going through many drawn-out cinematics, and having countless “gimme” battles – Yu-Gi-Oh! World Championship 2007 is a challenge from start to finish, packed with lots of dueling action!

Now, before I proceed, I will let you in on a little secret: I am a very picky gamer. As a game designer and writer, I tend to analyze games and judge them on a different scale. For me, a great game has to have high replay value, fluid gameplay, variety, and, wherever possible, a strong human element (even good AI gets boring and predictable after a while). Both the latest Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh! games for the Nintendo DS meet this criteria.

Coming Attractions: Spellcaster Deck, Pokemon Pearl, Yu-Gi-Oh Championship, and YDP-DPO Customer Perks

Posted by Yogizilla on May 12, 2007

If you haven’t been very active on Yu-Gi-Oh! Online you may have missed the release of yet another awesome themed duelpass. The Spellcasters Union Deck seems to be yet another response to the growing demand of the community. The E-Hero Deck was a huge success and I can see this deck being an even bigger success. While the previous duelpass deck provided an experience for the newer duelists and Yu-Gi-Oh! GX fans, this deck promises to offer more old-school flavors, fused with some newer cards.

Dark Magician and the girl of similar title.. Now THAT'S kicking it old-school!

If you are a big fan of Yami Yugi’s style of dueling, this new theme deck will definitely be a nice addition to your trunk. Like the previous E-Hero Deck, this duelpass gives you an entire deck (in much the same manner Structure Decks offer duelists vital cores for their recipes) upon first use. Each additional duelpass, if you can get your hands on more than one, gives you additional cards in the series…

Can I Has Cheezburger? Yu-Gi-Oh Championship 2007?? We hit 25K hits!!

Posted by Yogizilla on May 3, 2007

!!  ...   =^o^=

Does the image show my excitement? I would hope so! I figured we were due for a nice little update. First and foremost, we hit and exceeded the 25K hits mark last month on this blog, thanks to you guys. I appreciate all your recent comments and support. We’re still looking for reliable vendors to help us keep steady supply chains going and serve our customers as we always have: in a timely, down-to-earth manner! With the added exposure, we’re beginning to develop new affiliations and partnerships, which is always fun stuff! I think our next milestone will be trying to double that.

If you would like me to guest blog on your site, drop me a line. I am big on the geek underground, cult gaming, indy projects, consumer advocacy, and all sorts of random stuff, as you can see by visiting my work at The Smooth DJ and my personal blog, right here on WordPress. We’ll gladly cross-promote sites that have natural segways with our happy little Yu-Gi-Oh community.

So, who here has played the new Nintendo DS Yu-Gi-Oh game? I got a chance to play and, I tell you, the only reason I have not purchased a copy for myself is because it is quite addicting and I think Yu-Gi-Oh! Online is enough for me right now. The features are definitely worth buying it. The game has 3D graphics, full character/avatar customization, and over 1600 new cards, including your favorite GX Series cards! Yu-Gi-Oh World Championship 2007 is probably the most complete and worthwhile installment for those of you out there that, like me, have purchased every Yu-Gi-Oh game under the sun, including the “stand-alone” PC versions.

If not for any other reason, you should get the new Yu-Gi-Oh! for Nintendo DS for the Wi-Fi play, allowing you to duel anyone in the world for FREE. The dynamics of the DS game versus Yu-Gi-Oh! Online are definitely different so it’s worth it playing both side-by-side, especially if you consider yourself a hardcore duelists and true fan. If you guys get the game, reply to this thread with your friend codes. I will probably get a Nintendo DS Friend Code List page going too for other games so let me know if that interests you guys!
