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…

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 things...in 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…
