Duel Pass ONLINE Returns – Yu-Gi-Oh! Still Going Strong!

Posted by Yogizilla on March 18, 2011

Some of you may have already noticed that DPO is officially BACK!  It’s been hard to keep up with this site as a solo gig sooooo…  If you’re interested in becoming a contributor on Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Pass Online, reply to this message (I’ll repeat this again at the end in the “Game On! Wrap-Up”).

We’ve been lining up some new stuff for DPO for a few months now.  Now is as good as time to catch you all up on what’s going on!  First and foremost, we’re under new management here at DPO.  John is no longer with us so the retail component of our Yu-Gi-Oh! network is no more.

Fortunately, we at DPO and NoF as a whole love to game  so we’ve kept DPO going as part of our blog network and, ultimately, the NoF Network (affectionately called RoNoF for “Realm of NoF”).  We want to meet more gamers and geeks like us and keep the Yu-Gi-Oh! goodness coming.  As such, DPO will be providing more of what you already love and…

  • Anime and Manga news and recommendations.
  • Video game reviews and industry news.
  • Competitive events for gamers, locally and globally.

Don’t worry: we’ll be focusing on Yu-Gi-Oh! but we’ve noticed that some of our other content here has been quite popular as well.  In fact, our Anime pieces have been amongst our top searches.  We still remain a pretty underground so we hope to make our community more tightly-knit and interactive than ever!

Like I said, there’s lots of stuff in the pipelines so bare with us.  We’ll be linking to our top fan sites, friends, and affiliates.  If your web site and/or blog aligns well with our content, YOU may be the next featured site.  With around 50 new visitors each day, we have some good traffic to the site and hope to draw in some new fans soon.

SIDEBAR:  Can you believe it’s been over ten years now and Yu-Gi-Oh! is STILL going strong?  That’s pretty awesome, if you ask me.  The 5D’s series has been a big hit, in no small part thanks to the folks at Shonen Jump (be sure to follow ShonenJump, NipplesOfFate, and Yogizilla on Twitter) – w00t w00t!!

I’m particularly excited about sharing some of my recent Yu-Gi-Oh! purchases.  We’ll be doing some pack/box busters and sharing our favorite cards from different pack releases/series.  We’ll also discuss our favorite Yu-Gi-Oh! video games, movies, and MORE!

Game On! Wrap-Up

In our effort to increase our following and meet fellow geeks/gamers, we will be wrapping up major blog entries with your very own “Call To Action”.  Every good blog should drive action and encourage reader participation so we hope this sets up more opportunities for us to have good times together.  Here we go!

  • Help us reach 500K views.  We’re over 400K views which is pretty impressive for a site with minimal promotional effort behind it.  We need more folks to put us on their blogrolls, reviews, favorites, bookmarks, and all that good stuff.  Sharing is caring!
  • Like a topic?  Leave your mark.  No matter how long or short, we love reading comments from our fans.  Keep it friendly and specific.  If it sounds like spam, we may just unapprove your comments (sorry, no free links from us).  While you’re at it, be sure to Like, Share, Rate, and all that good stuff.
  • Let’s UNITE!  If you have a web site or blog, link to us and we’ll return the love.  While we run away from salespitchy, spammy messages, if you naturally introduce yourself and have something particularly interesting to share, we’ll be sure to check it out and pass the word along, as appropriate.  Together, we can reach new audiences..  EZ.
  • Want more?  Tell us.  We have lots of things lined up for DPO but, to stay focused, we need your help.  If there is anything in particular you like on our site, let us know.  All it takes is a quick comment.  What’s more is that your comments help us find your web sites and return the favor.  It’s a win-win situation!
  • Get friendly and support DPO Friends.  DPO Friends is a new page where we feature our favorite and affiliated sites.  Be sure to check out what our friends are up to.  If you’re savvy with social media, plug our friends away – a little extra exposure never hurts!
Over a decade later, Yu-Gi-Oh! is still going strong!!

Don't mess with these guys.. They're the real-deal-Holyfield of the Yu-Gi-Oh! duelist kingdom, y0.

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!

Cross Promotion: Oreo Cookies FTW!

Posted by Yogizilla on March 16, 2007

If you like oreo cookies or just want to help us draw more traffic, thus making Yu-Gi-Oh! online even more popular, please read on to find out how you can help with our 25K Click Campaign and a NEW Oreo Promotion. Here is the info straight from http://yogizilla.wordpress.com:

Vote for my bro, Antonio (a.k.a ToNy4MVP) of St. John’s University, at (or after) 3:00pm EST at http://www.cwtv.com/thecw/oreo – he is one of 15 finalist out of thousands upon thousands of entries. Very excited for him… Los Oreo’s SON MUY DELICIOSOS!!!!

Now for the perks, the stuff that’s in it for YOU. Those that take an active role in promoting this can send me their stories to be featured on my personal blog. If you’d like, I’ll also duel you and/or give you some Yu-Gi-Oh! training – FREE of charge! If that is no enough, you will receive a sort of spotlight in my duelist journal, where I will shout out all participants and show the world just how active our community is.

VROOM VROOM - Vote for your favorite Oreo - Oreo FTW!!!

This is a chance to show people that Yu-Gi-Oh! players and gamers as a whole are very much generous, aware of world issues, and involved in things that really matter. Why do I say this? Well, the grand prize winner of this promo has the option of donating $30,000 to the charity of his choice. Currently, my brother is in the lead and we are thinking of donating it to a major cancer charity since many of our own family members have died or suffered due to cancer (R.I.P. Buddy).

Back to happy news, please help out. I’d appreciate it greatly, all silliness aside, and it really is a good effort to get involved in. The more limelight this contest sees, the more they can do things like this in the future and give back to the community. That is how I look at it. Whether or not my brother wins, at least we are helping a good cause! ^_^

This promotion ends March 20th at 3:00pm EST so get in your votes now and re-vote as many times as you want – spread the w3rd!

The 25K Campaign: Now You Can Make Yu-Gi-Oh! More Popular

Posted by Yogizilla on March 14, 2007

The other day I decided it had been a while since I ran some extensive web analytics and I must say that I am pleased to see that sites I maintain, contribute to, and support all dominate the top of the search results.  Looking at the numbers and seeing the interest in the game grow right before my eyes (the truth is in the pudding, after all) really inspired me. Aside from making me want to duel more, it makes me want to continue my work as a sort of Yu-Gi-Oh! Online evangelist. Spread the good news of Yu-Gi-Oh, my brothers and sisters – spread it far and wide!

I know this sounds like a journal entry and, for the most part it is, but it is also a call to duty. Your call to duty is this: spread the word about this blog to everyone you know and everyone they know. Our blog does not have ads and is completely pure (the way a blog should be, IMHO). The only profit we stand to make is just making the Yu-Gi-Oh! community that much stronger. Sure, it’ll help if people click through to partner sites but sales conversions over blogs is hardly a viable strategy. I can sincerely say that we are campaigning for the good of Yu-Gi-Oh! here, not mere personal profit; the more traffic we get, the more exposure the game gets.  A major portion of our traffic comes from keyword searches that aren’t even specific to Yu-Gi-Oh! sometimes.  As a result, I am adding more tags here as we speak!

It’s funny but, when we first started this blog, it was meant to be a sales support channel for DPO then, when YDP and DPO merged, it evolved naturally. People started to give us great response about our unique perspective on the game and they liked our friendly approach to things. If you go to sites like TCGplayer.com, they have more of the typical elitist writers. If you aren’t winning well-known tournaments, you can’t even be their friends (good luck getting an e-mail response from them too). We’re trying to keep the snobbery out of the game and making the Yu-Gi-Oh! community more inviting because, to the non-dueling world, we are mostly disgruntled, anti-social nerds yet it is VERY much about the social interaction, the gathering, to us at YDP-DPO and many people we know!
