Lost Odyssey completed at LEVEL 48!

My wife just finished LOST ODYSSEY at Level 48, with 55+ hours of play! Her goal was to FINISH THE GAME WITHOUT POWER-LEVELING / DOING ANY OF THE SIDE QUESTS!

With this accomplishment she has clearly established that IGN and GAMESPY'S reviews were DEAD WRONG about the game. It is possible to finish the game without power-leveling/grinding. The turn-based gameplay in Lost Odyssey is very strategic and a person who plays the combat right can finish the game without going through too much grind!

Now, you're probably asking, WHERE'S the PROOF? Actually, the ending is playing back in the background right now as I'm typing this. She took pictures of her menu and some ending screens. She's going to post those in a minute. I can't look at her pictures because I don't want to get spoiled! (I didn't watch the ending credits too, but I know it took quite a was a long ending!!!!) As I've posted earlier I'm just on Disc 2, and with her reactions on the ending I'm absolutely looking forward to it. If you really need more proof, check the ACHIEVEMENT list for 'Tankblitzer'; that's the gamertag that she used for her playthrough.

She says the ending is amazing, the full length of the ending is 20-30 minutes long, clearly rivaling the last best ending I remember, the ending of Final Fantasy 6.

She will post her pictures and her final impressions shortly since we have work piling up and she took a lot of spoiler pics. But for now, check out the image below. She took photos of her party's stats and equipment before finishing the game.

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…
