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…

Possible Solution for PS3 NAT TYPE 3 on Globe Telecom PROLINK Modems!

Long time no post...been busy with work but still gaming on the side when I have the time. One thing I have been trying to fix for practically months now is getting NAT TYPE 3 on my Playstation 3 when connected wirelessly via a Linksys WRT120N Router connected to Globe Telecom's PROLINK Modem/Router.

NAT TYPE 2 is the ideal set up to find games online easily and to connect to more players.

I'll probably update this post some time later today to clarify some a rush because I'm also working...

Here was my setup before:

Linksys WRT120N
- Has DHCP Server On
- Getting an IP address from the Globe modem of 192.168.254.x

Prolink Modem from Globe
- Apparently also a router of some kind
- The public/dynamic(?) IP address from Globe was in this device and not in the WRT120N device, as evidenced by an address that was not 192.168.x.x
- Username and password was in the Prolink device.

After reading a LOT of information online, including this one:…

The CD-R King USB Arcade Stick on the Playstation 3 - An Honest (But Not Cynical) Opinion

(*Pictures included below. I also have a picture of the BUTTON CONFIGURATION Screen for Street Fighter IV for the Playstation 3, configured for use with the CDR-King USB Arcade Stick. This will surely be useful for anyone considering to buy the CD-R King USB Arcade Stick. Mapping the buttons on the CD-R King stick can be quite tedious, with the way SFIV is set up for button mapping.)

I spent a (relatively) small amount of money on one of those generic USB Arcade Sticks that they're selling over in CD-R King (the stick cost PHP 550). The thing is, arcade sticks for the Playstation 3 have become extremely rare now that Street Fighter IV is out. Playing on the PS3 controller is workable, but gives me a sore left thumb.

It's one of the hassles of living in an 'unsupported' country that I haven't got any easy access to peripherals for game consoles. Even before SFIV came out, arcade sticks for any console here in the Philippines is extremely rare, and even if they do come…
