The Wizard Fox, Delphox – by KeiNhanGia

I am seriously engrossed in Pokémon X now, I find myself looking forward to continuing my journey across Kalos and capturing as many Pokémon as I can whenever I am not playing Pokémon X. There is just something completely enchanting about progress and seeing your Pokémon grow, evolve and gain new abilities through the challenges you face within your journey. It’s enjoyable, compelling and even after hours of play, the game remains shockingly fresh and full of life. Even though I have only just gotten my third gym badge (the Rumble Badge) from the gym leader Korrina, I have accumulated so many hours of game play and I feel like I can spend a lot more time in my journey in Pokémon X.

Pokémon X [3DS] (Part 1) – A New Adventure Begins

Pokemon X wallpaper

A new adventure to catch ’em all begins!

It’s been ages since I played a Pokémon game, over twelve years now since I last played it – Pokémon Blue and a bit of Pokémon Yellow. While I wasn’t able to max out my Blastoise’s level in Pokémon Blue, I was still able to defeat all the gym leaders and get most of my main Pokémon into the level 80 regions. I remember it being extremely fun and quite the adventure, but hahah, it sure did take time exploring, leveling and catching Pokémon.

Anyway I ended up getting Pokémon X for my 3DS and I am glad I did, this game is a lot of fun and I have begun to notice that exploring and catching Pokémon are only some of the features Pokémon games offer these days. Pokémon Amie, Pokémon Super Training, the Pokémon Daycare, the berry farm, Pokémon Societies, ability to change your trainers outfit, and most likely a ton of more features I haven’t even come across yet in Pokémon. There is so much more to do in Pokémon now and amusingly, more often than not, you will find yourself distracted by these features when trying to progress through the story, I know I have =P.

FFXIV: A Realm Reborn – Back Into Eorzea

FFXIV - Syphin Kuroren - wonder

And so I return to the world of Eorzea

Refreshing and engrossing, with the element of fun beckoning you into its world filled with creativity and wonder, FFXIV feels like a whole different game this time around. I made a post about the problems with version 1.0 of FFXIV back in 2011 – The Journey Into Eorzea, this post will talk about some of those problems (quoting them from my post) and how the changes in A Realm Reborn have changed those issues for the better.

Guild Wars 2 – Across The World Of Tyria

Guild Wars 2 - Syphin across the World of Tyria part 1.

And so the journey into the unknown and the start of a fantastically epic adventure begins…

I bought Guild Wars 2 over two weeks ago and have been playing a human Warrior and while Guild Wars 2 had been initial confusing, its gotten seriously addicting this past week. I never played Guild Wars 1 before and I knew nothing about Guild Wars 2 before buying it beyond there being a war and guilds. The reason I actually purchased myself a copy was because the guild I’m in (more like a community) became really active in Guild Wars 2 when the betas were ongoing (Twelve Guild Wars 2 introduction), so deciding to join in playing the game was quite easy – it’s always fun to play games together =D.

Fanart Dimension – Samus Aran

Drawing - Samus Aran - by Syphin

The galaxy’s greatest bounty hunter and one of gaming’s sexiest heroines, Samus Aran

This piece was requested by one of my guildmates (here), he wanted Samus Aran (Metroid) in her zero suit with her special gun in a sexy pose, not sure how I nailed the sexy down but regardless, Samus Aran is by default amazingly sexy and this drawing was really fun to create.

Diablo III – It Has Begun!

Diablo III - Syphin - Monk

“…attacks faster than the eye can follow…” – mmm Monk’s are badass

Got my copy of Diablo III today and hahah had to visit several stores until I could find one, the first two didn’t have them in stock =(. Fortunately Dick Smith did =D. Ended up playing Diablo II: Lord of Destruction a few days ago just to refresh my memory of the story and the gameplay, it was fun running around as a Sorceress. Anyway the installing did take some time but finally in the game! Oh so I thought…forgot I had to wait until America reached midnight of the 15th of May =(. Anyway I can log in now, but wow so many session/request time outs…
