BlogShift: Gaming

Objectives: To explore all genres or categories of blogging.

As you know my blog offers random topic which makes it more like a personal blog but then I wonder what of I shift into other blog categories, that's when I came up with this idea and I hope you guys like it:). 

Okay we are now on my third blog shift posts I hope you have enjoyed my recent literature and fashion genre themed post :P.
This tine I will be trying the genre of GAMING, yeah I know it was something most of you might find unlikable haha.
I've been quite a gamer over the years I started playing online and lan games after my high school years in which MMORPG( Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games) was such a huge hit. The first games I tried playing were FLYFF( FLY For Fun) which is a great 3D RPG game and DOTA (Defense Of The Ancient) an interactive kind of  game. But just last year I tried a new game which seems to be like FLYFF but more on the complex way and today this is what I feel like to review and share.

This game was entitled DRAGON NEST, a 3D MMORPG develop by Eyedentity that were franchised by Shanda and Cherry credits for the south east Asian gamers.

Dragon Nest is not like any other MMORPG because It uses a non-targeting combat system which means full control of your character's movements. This game requires teaming up and travelling into dungeon your your character to progress and also the fact that the entire game has a story to tell which each character will have to deal with throughout the gaming process. A girl named Rose was kidnapped by Velskud a evil warrior who desires for the power of the ancients which only Rose can activate. You would have to talk at various NPC( Non-Player Characters) and enter several dungeons to be able to progress in your quest to save rose. There are movie like clips that will be showed in the entire quest progress which will vary defending of your choice of characters such as the following:

I must admit I'm no good at this game haha my hands were a bit slow haha anyways you can download this game at Cherry credit's official web site click here to view.

Well that's it for now:) stay tuned for the next category of my Blog shift special series.

Refference: and



  1. Sorry Mecoy, but I can't relate that much to these games. I played one of these games once but I find it boring..hehehe..I'm more of an outdoor person doing sports activities and other outside stuff. hehehe! But nice info btw!

    1. I "second the motion" from Jay's comment! Hindi ako maka-relate and so do with doing outdoor activities instead. When Farmville was new and everyone goes gaga sending invites, I replied

      "If I have spare time I'll work on a real farm and plant real crops and all, than to waste my time on a virtual farm"

      No offense to Farmville lovers but for me it's a waste of time, energy and money (electricity, etc).

      But thanks for sharing the info MEcoy. Online gaming is one good leisure as long you know your limits and it will not cause you to be unproductive with life like those people who died while gaming :( Jeez!

  2. di ako nakarelate kasi di ako gamers hehehe pero naaliw ako kasi nagka idea ako...

    Buti naka post ka nito ^^

  3. ay gusto ko yung DOTA, pero hindi game, yung books. hahaha. mas maganda sa book mecoy kesa sa games ;-)

  4. never heard of it before, the game must be big in Asia, but didn't make much of a splash in America.


  5. the last game that I played was RAN Online. Tried all the classes: swordsman, brawler, shaman, gunner and archer

  6. Sorry pero di ako makarelate. pero ang cute ng mga character ah. hehe. Di ako mahilig maglaro online. Last game na nilaro ko ay counter strike. haha. loser ko! dyuk!

  7. natry ko din yan. pero di ko feel ang controls. gusto ko yung typical lang na click-click tapos press-press sa keyboard for shortcuts. hahaah.

    Ragnarok-Gunbound-Tantra-Ran-yan ang mga fave ko.

  8. PC games are for all ages. I knew someone way back in Phils, highschool teacher and was competing with his students to win over a certain prize haha, sounds gambling huh!?

  9. oh, so you are having this BlogShift theme in every post now?? hahaha, luckily there is an F in your BlogShift huh, else guess what it becomes?? kekeke, just kidding~~

    1. hmmm, games and anime!! this is really something that i am not good at.. i don't know any of those characters that you have featured here, so ignorant about them and so sorry about that.. :p

    2. i don't usually play this kind of games.. those that i play are more of puzzle games, words games and with cute cute characters.. i find these games more relaxing and light compared to those strategic war games..

  10. wow, it's friday again!! hope you have a great weekend and take good care melvin.. :)

  11. Last OL game i played is O2Jam :)

  12. Ooppss. gaming... dito hindi ako gaanong maka-relate.. Sa Farmville at Zombies lang yata ako na-addict then the other games, I'm not really familiar... But then, I really appreciate the images.. the characters, the cartoons. Dyan, na-aapreciate ko talaga ang creativity ng mga artists sa ganyan! Have a great weekend MeCoy!

  13. Ok ang mga dungeon ng game na ito because you can set the difficulty to easy, normal, hard, master and the abyss kung ang avatar mo ay malupet at malakas na. Medyo expensive ang mga armor at costume pero maganda naman dahil 3D sya kaya astig. Halos walang pinagkaiba ang graphics nya sa RAN OL yun nga lang dito ay para kang naglalaro ng PS na keyboard ang gamit mo. Dapat ay magaling kang mga taggle ng skill bar para sa mga moves ng avatar mo at dapat ay mabilis din ang kamay mo para magawa mo ang mga combo skills or move ng mga avatar. Di ko na nalalaro ang Acrobat ko nahihirapan kasi ako gamitin ang mga combo. Mababa pa rin yung level ng elemental lord ko at balak ko din gumawa ng destroyer ehehe. Mejo may pagka gamer din ako. I like this post ehehehe.

  14. Very nice, and thanks for adding their stats to your blog :]

  15. Dragon Nest? I use to play XD then I quit because the game set up is kind of dizzy and not suitable for me XD

  16. sometime i do wish i can gaming all day ~

  17. The sorceress is so pretty! <3 I always have this thing of playing mmorpg online but I never did. just offline.

  18. I used to play online games, they are really fascinating, esp these games including magic and stuff, though I always remain as an underdog lol.
