Dynasty Warriors 8 confirmed!

October 30, 2012 Leave a comment

A magazine  page scan from a popular japanese magazine, Jump Magazine, revealed today the confirmation of the next series of Koei’s famous video game, Dynasty Warriors…. With the reveal of the 8th series, Dynasty Warriors 8

Even though Dynasty Warriors 7 Empires has yet to be released Koei have apparently gone on ahead and announced the next series of Dynasty Warriors early to shock us all, even though we knew it was coming, the news this soon has taken me by surprise!

Now I can’t translate japanese unfortunately but a friend of mine did and what we have here is the popular Dynasty Warriors character, Zhao Yun from the kingdom of Shu and a brand new character coming to the 8th series, this character in blue has been translated to as Yue Jin, a warrior from the kingdom of Wei, pretty exciting stuff!

Dynasty Warriors 8 has been set for release in Japan for 2013, although nothing as of yet for a overseas release but it is VERY early to tell anything yet, watch this space!

EDIT:: A second character has been announced in more magazine scans!



This guy is Li Dian from the kingdom of Wei, with him and Yue Jin, if anyone remembers the battle of He Fei, these will make that level much more epic!

Ziedrich’s Diary – Forum Life part 2

April 22, 2012 Leave a comment

During late  2003/2004 in Neoseeker, I was switching between Dynasty Warriors and Devil May Cry forums since they were the major games I was playing at the time and then started playing a game called Kingdom Hearts which I thought was a very unique RPG action game, I joined it’s forum section in Neoseeker and didn’t realise how crammed the place was, so many people with an average posts per day rating of about 120 to 150!

The Kingdom Hearts forum did have a moderator at the time, can’t fully remember his name, think it was around the lines of  FenriZ  666, Not completely sure since that was like the last time I met the guy, not long after I started in the place, he left his mod job and just a few weeks later, a new mod took his place, called DragonFang, nice guy but he didn’t really last long as the mod since he had some family issues or something and asked the admins to demote him.

This sparked a mass overhaul of moderation requests for the KH forum, during 2004, I was the most helpful member of that forum, with wave after wave of solving people’s questions on the game and where to go and such, after DragonFang demoted from there, I was announced as the Kingdom Hearts Master due to me fully completing the game and one of the few people who made a FAQ to all the big bosses such as Sephiroth and the Ice Titan.

I started gaining quite a few loyal fans, people such as Devil Link and Mount, and I thought that I might aswell send my invite off to the admins to become moderator of Kingdom Hearts, when I announced that I have done so on the KH’s general discussion thread, the rest of the members kinda lost hope of them gaining the mod place, I felt bad but was also laughing at the humour side of it

At first, I didn’t want to send the invite for mod place since I didn’t think I could take the responsibilities of a moderator, I mean I was a mod before, for about 6 months, I was mod of the Yu-Gi-Oh! Duellist Of The Roses, I haven’t talked about it since my job there only lasted 6 months and that section was dying down when I got the position anyway so it’s not important….

Anyway, before I sent the invite, I was given a PM by one of the website’s Super Moderators, his name was called BloodSin, a very nice guy that I talk to everynow and again over at the Vagrant Story forum. He sent me a personal message pretty much saying that he was studying certain people after the last mod retired, he told me that I was one of the best guys for the job of moderation of KH forum, I was quite moved but such confidence that this upper class mod has on me and so with this in mind, I sent out my invite and had to wait for the answer

The waiting would last about 2 weeks, it was quite an agonizing 2 weeks, just waiting for a reply, then when the time came, I received a PM from the special member, Moderator Requests, who focuses just on the mod invites, hence the username. He said to me that after some serious competition of the place of mod of Kingdom Hearts, I was the one their choose, my heart almost stopped at what was in the PM and just a few days later, my username, Martinwalker8, was on the top of the forum, “Moderator – Martinwalker8”, I really couldn’t have been any happier!

In part 3, I will talk about some of the things I have done in the Kingdom Hearts forum of Neoseeker and that my season as mod of the forum lasted about a massive 18 months!

Konami announces Metal Gear Online termination

February 15, 2012 1 comment

Konami have announced today on their Facebook page that the Metal Gear Online game, after 4 years since it started, is to be terminated during the summer this year, here is what Konami said in their recent post on Facebook:

“To start off, we would like to first thank anyone who participated in Metal Gear Online for their four years of dedicated loyalty and support. It was because of your support that this project was extended an additional year longer than initially planned.

We are going to be rolling out a series of small closures starting March 21st and ending with theshutdown of the central servers June 12th on the 4th anniversary of the game’s release.

On March 21st the MGO Online Shop will be closed.

The following month, on April 24th, the Expansion Packs, Preset Codec Message Appeal Packs and Reward Shop Equipment will become available for download for free. New character registration will be unavailable after this date.

Finally, on June 12th at 11:59PM JST (4:59AM PST, 7:59AM EST), the servers will be shut down. 

You’ve snuck, shot, CQC’d, won, and lost against fellow operatives all around the world creating friendships and rivalries we hope you’ll cherish long after the servers end, and from the entire staff at Konami and Kojima Productions, we thank you, and hope that we will have the opportunity to serve you again in the future.

Taken from the official transcript at the MGO website:

“METAL GEAR ONLINE” was included with “METAL GEAR SOLID 4” and launched on June 12th 2008.However, we regret to announce that online service will draw to a close on June 12th 2012 after four years of service.

Thank you to everyone for your loyal support of METAL GEAR ONLINE.”

It is sad to hear about that, many people loved Meat Gear Online almost as much as the actual Metal Gear Solid 4 game but after 4 years.

I am surprised it lasted this long, Konami even said that the game was extended by a year and now they are slowly closing the curtains on this game, so if you are still playing the game, try to make the most of it as come summer time it will be closed down for good!

Assassin’s Creed III release date already confirmed!

February 15, 2012 Leave a comment


I was just looking through some gaming websites, just for some usual intel and I found this interesting piece of evidence for the upcoming UbiSoft game, Assassin’s Creed III.

I found this information just today on the vg247’s website and it says about the release date of the game and the scenario for a possible story plot, below is what is said on the website:

“Ubisoft has announced Assassin’s Creed III will be released on October 30.

The date was given in a financial call to investors today. Details regarding the game are minute at this point, but it will star a new protagonist. Various locations have been rumored over recent months, with Egypt, China, and America during the Revolutionary period the running favorites. The French Revolution has also been mentioned.”

The information on the game’s release (Alongside Far Cry 3) is actually supposed to be released tomorrow in Europe but this was leaked sooner than Ubisoft expected.

So far from what I’ve read up, Assassin’s Creed III is set for release on PC, PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U and possibly PS Vita, so everyone will get a chance to play this, I’m very curious on what it will actually be about….
