Yu-Gi-Oh! Online Version 2 – Duel Evolution – Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Generation
Yu-Gi-Oh! Online (YGOO) for the PC is still one of the biggest and most active communities for hardcore and casual Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG duelists alike. If you’re serious about improving your Yu-Gi-Oh! skills, YGOO is the way to go. As you can see here on DPO, some have a love-hate relationship with Konami’s flagship Yu-Gi-Oh! Game but, love it or hate it, there are few other ways to duel on a global scale. I miss taking part in the Yu-Gi-Oh! events myself so, if you play, let me know. I’m hoping to take a break from project work and catch up with fellow Yu-Gi-Oh! fans, online gamers, and duelists alike. w00t! Read the rest of this entry »

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)

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 )

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!
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.

Hello all! I have a few assorted updates so get ready…
First and foremost, I have to say that I like the crazy programming Cartoon Network has been doing lately. They followed up Miyazaki’s Spirited Away with a marathon of Perfect Hair Forever, one of the most pointless yet strangely entertaining shows EVER! For our older viewers out there, it features lots of adult inuendo to keep even the biggest deviants happy. LOL… Anywho, what’s up with the new Tom on Toonami? I see lots of people out there searching for information about the recent changes. I can’t say I am a fan personally but it’s cool that he has a whole crew now; I mean, life in outer space would be lonely otherwise!
In other news, we are moving our web site to new servers so there may be some interruption and delay in product delivery. Those that ordered anything this week should be more affected than those that placed orders in previous weeks. We’re working around the clock to get things fixed up so be patient, folks! If you can’t reach us via e-mail, I check our blog much more often now so feel free to use this.
So it seems illiteracy is spreading like wildfire, as the above cartoon depicts. We have received a few checks that are not made out to the right people and, as such, we cannot do anything with them. Please read instructions carefully as it’ll save you time in the long run. If you pay by check or money order, please be sure to make it out to:
P.O. Box 994
New York, NY 10018

It took a little while longer than I had hoped but I finally completed the Duel School page, which will be a great resource for new (yes, learn how to play Yu-Gi-Oh! on this new page) and casual duelists alike. Heck, this approach to dueling may give even old school Yu-Gi-Oh! players a fresh, new perspective. I personally hope it helps debunk some of the myths of the game while showing people that the game is easy to learn, fun to play, and good for anyone that likes TCG’s or strategic games in general. I always say this: Yu-Gi-Oh! is a game that can be easily learned yet offers enough complexity for even the most advanced gaming strategists.
I enjoyed putting together this information though, I must admit, WordPress was being very naughty. I almost lost all my work somehow and then the formatting was stripped out of everything. I will be polishing up the page a bit and hopefully citing more external resources to help you with your homework. Speaking of homework, I will also be finding ways to tie in the Duel Challenges page to give all of you out there a fresh new way to learn and re-learn the game. I think everyone could stand to learn more by returning to the basics, really!
As part of the launch of this major new section, I am asking folks in the gaming community to guest blog for us, help us collect Yu-Gi-Oh! resources, and share any feedback you may have. Promoting our efforts definitely goes a long way! Perhaps if we all work a little bit here and there, on a consistent basis, we can hit the 25K mark by the end of this month and set a more aggressive goal for next month. At this rate, I think we can very well do it.
All I know is that all this fun stuff has caught my partner-in-crime’s eye so hopefully Ugocean will grace us with his presence. He’s been terribly busy with back-end stuff and some other projects we have going on. We’ve pretty much decided that anything that is PR, customer service, or content-related is my department. He’s enjoying his time with servers, analytics, PHP, and a guy named Jobi. We love you Ugocean!
Thanks to all of you that have sent me e-mail messages and comments here on WordPress, MySpace, and other places. Some of you have requested training so I hope our duel school gives you a good place to start. If you want to set up an online meetup, your best bet is e-mailing me or using our challenges area. Don’t be shy: I love receiving and responding to messages, so long as they are nice and not mere spam! I am looking forward to your response on this initiative and the other goodies we are working on. Good times, good times… =o)

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!

We recently received several messages at YDP regarding people promising free duelpasses and free duels. Some folks have also asked me where to buy Yu-Gi-Oh! Online Duelpasses. The response to Konami’s free duel lobby initiative has been tremendous as well. I have tackled a lot of the issues thereof but, just to revisit the core issues here, I’d like to issue a general scam warning and myth debunker.
First and foremost, Yu-Gi-Oh! Online no longer features a free duel lobby at the current point in time. This was a promotion and was meant to be temporary. We do not know if they have plans to bring it back as a seasonal feature or something available to new or low-level players only but, when we do get confirmation on this, we’ll let you all know. For now, the Yu-Gi-Oh! Online Duelpass system has been made much more accessible and affordable so we hope it encourages more new players!
Some sites have promised free duelpasses or unrealistically-good discounts. I have scoured the Net myself both as a customer (before I became a Yu-Gi-Oh! reseller) and a business owner. I have yet to find huge price drops and steady supplies from a reliable business. All the sites promise freebies have been scams aimed at stealing passwords, installing spyware, or doing other malicious things to the systems of their visitors. Be wary of any promises of free duelpasses and the like – those are all SCAMS!
