Tips for new Lost Odyssey players: How to beat Grilgan and Bogimoray

Seeing that many people are already getting the game, some might be having trouble with the first and second real boss (the first machine you face doesn't really 'count' as a boss):

To the ones who have made it through, post your best tips for those two bosses here.

My first, major tip: Don't power-level or grind. You'll ruin the game for yourself and there's no strategy there....you won't learn how to play the game.

Other tips:

1. Water kills Fire, Fire kills Wind, Wind kills Earth, Earth kills Water. I forgot the element of the griffin boss....use the appropriate magic against it.

2. For Grilgan, be aggressive with the HEALING. Play defensively and protect your characters as much as you can.

3. If you have a flare bomb, ground bomb or any other type of bomb, use it now. Don't worry, you'll find others in the game.

4. If you have an instant heal potion of some kind, use it. Again, don't worry, you'll get more later in the game.

5. For Bogimoray: Look for the YELLOW BAND and the KNIGHT'S CODE. Train your immortals with the skills in those items. Yellow band = protects you from Anti-paralysis. Knight's Code = heals your GC. The only bit of 'grinding' that you need is to teach Kaim and Seth these skills. It doesn't take that much time....don't focus on leveling up, focus on learning the skills.

6. For Bogimoray: WATCH your GC bar. It's on the upper right corner of the screen. Don't play this game like Final Fantasy or Eternal Sonata and mash the 'ATTACK' option all the time. That won't work for Lost Odyssey. Think. Use your head. Play defensively. Protect your characters. If your GC is down, start healing it with the skill of Knight's Code, called 'Stand Ready'. To use this, select the DEFEND option during your turn.

7. Remember, for Bogimoray, there are two of them. So use your items wisely so that you have enough for the second fight.

8. After Bogimoray, you'll fight a bunch of soldiers. They're easy, don't worry....again, if you watch your GC bar you should make it through.

I think these two boss fights are really just 'training levels' for the later battles, which do get even more challenging. If you understand the turn-based combat system, you shouldn't have problems in getting through these enemies.

See this screenshot? Check out my HP/MP. Note how I didn't grind at all. This boss is beatable even at this level. So don't power-level, and play the game as it's meant to be played.

Most of the enemies and bosses in the game are beatable at low level, in fact, my wife was able to beat the game at a level much lower than most other players. She beat the game at Level 48. So there's no doubt that this game is well balanced, you just have to play it strategically.

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

Microsoft:

- 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…
