Beating the Lost Odyssey 1st Boss - Grilgan

While my husband is still exploring the world of Lost Odyssey in Disk 4, he asked me if I could make a video of my fight with the first two bosses of the game: Grilgan and Bogimoray. The video shows that I didn't really grind/power-level in order to beat Grilgan. Practically all the items that I have are items I obtained from exploring the map. And last I checked, exploring the map for the first time doesn't exactly count as grinding. Note that my characters levels are the following: Kaim (13), Seth (13) and Jansen (12). The video also contains the skill and equipment that I have equipped.

Please note that our video capture card doesn't belong to the high end variety. The text may be unreadable.

I started the offense with Grilgan by throwing a Flare Bomb at his direction. The Flare Bomb was obtained while walking through the world and not through an NPC. Other than that I made sure that Jansen had 'Shield' cast on him. The 'Shield' spell should increase your defense against Grilgan's attacks are mostly physical but he also has a very strong magical wind attack.

Notice that he didn't exactly use his super attack on my party. Perhaps he was too busy trying to stop the offense since I made sure that I get to hit him with every turn. But if he did use the super attack, I put the item which gave Jansen the enhancement 'Crisis Attack Boost', which should help him once his HP goes below favorable levels. Both Kaim and Seth have learned 'Crisis Attack Boost' and that skill is present in their skill slot. Kaim and Seth also have White Magic Lvl 1, just in case I actually run out of potions.

Basically, the fight is very strong on defense but I made sure that I keep the offensive going. That's how most of the fights go in Lost Odyssey. And don't forget to use your items, they might just save your characters. In the fight with Grilgan the essential items are the Flare Bomb (you only get 1 but that's ok), Healing Potions and the Antidote.

While both Kaim and Seth are capable to cast the magic 'Heal', note that they are both very slow spell casters. By the time they would have finished casting 'Heal', Grilgan would have taken an offensive strike against the team. It's better for them to throw items around than cast it. And just in case there may be some 'people' from the game industry who will complain that there was no prior knowledge with regarding to the casting abilities of Kaim and Seth...well remember those super long and absolutely horrible (just horrible! *sarcasm*) loading screens? Well the character attributes are displayed there and shows the strength of each character. Of course, prior knowledge of the English Alphabet is necessary.

Gamers based in the Philippines: How to get in Xbox Live

NOTE: This article has recently been updated (as of August 12, 2006). Singapore no longer lets you input '00000' as your zip code. Please see below for alternate zip codes.

So you're a Filipino living in the Philippines with a brand-spanking new Xbox 360. You've heard about all the wonderful stories on Xbox Live. You happen to have a pretty good broadband connection. One day, you try out the Xbox Live sign-up options on your 360, and you find out to your dismay that your country is NOT listed. What do you do?

Now, you can probably enjoy your 360 without live at all, but I have to tell you: YOU ARE MISSING OUT. As Peter Moore said in the recent MS Press Conference: "Having your 360 connected to Xbox Live is as vital as having your computer connected to the Internet".

He is so damned right.

I've been playing on Xbox Live for almost a year now (both on my original Xbox and the Xbox 360). Essentially I found out all of this with a little bit of research, a little…

Xbox One - System / Games general review

We picked up a [kinect-less] Xbox One a few weeks ago and have been putting it through its paces. Overall, right now I feel pretty good about this console. But I have to admit, the first experience of buying it is not very good. I'll go with the BAD news first. But do note that it isn't all bad news....

- The first time you bring it home, the console can't work without Internet. That's because it needs an absolutely-unoverrideable mandatory update. Basically, if you get this for your birthday and it's 7PM, expect to actually play games on it around a day or so later, depending on your internet speed.

- The first patch I got for it was around 800MB. This number might have changed by the time of this writing.

- All the launch games now have accumulated patches/updates over 16+ GB in size. Not just Dead Rising 3, which has been reported widely in the media. Even Forza 5.

- My internet at home is PLDT 3Mbps; managed to get all the updates pretty quickly....that's a…

E3 2015 Conferences from the Big Three - My thoughts


- They get a lot of points from me for actually announcing games that will be out in 2015.
- The Backwards Compatibility update is a huge surprise that I absolutely did not expect. Having BC is difficult and expensive to do, but somehow MS managed to do it, which leads me to believe the solution they found is an inexpensive one if they've decided it's practical to do QA work for the Xbox 360s gigantic library of games and make them all work on the Xbox One. If it was too complicated or expensive they probably wouldn't have bothered. But since they did, I think we're going to see full BC some time soon for all games. It's only a matter of time.
- Halo 5 looked fantastic, but 343 has a lot of work to do to restore faith, after the horrific launch of the Halo Master Chief Collection. I think they can do it, and I'd imagine they're certainly motivated now. If they screw this one up....MS might reconsider forming a new team to handle the Halo franchis…
