Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night is 2.5D action adventure game directed and produced by IGA. He will also handle the role of scenario writer on the project. Castlevania series composer Michiru Yamane will join him along with developer Inti Creates, the same studio behind Keji Inafune's Mighty No. 9, Azure Striker Gunvolt, and Mega Man 9 and 10.
IGA decided to go with 2.5D for this project for both financial and artistic reasons. All decisions in game development involve trade-offs, and for Bloodstained a 2.5D world built on Unreal Engine 4 was the right choice to balance development time, graphical fidelity, budget, and scope.
At the same time, IGA is very excited about exploring the paths a 2.5D style opens up within the classic Igavania formula. As he begins a new chapter of his career as a developer, he's looking forward to trying things that will enhance, rather than detract from, that core gameplay.
Still, though, we would never discount the fans' love for that classic style. The development team is looking forward to working with backers every step of the way to decide on custom shaders that will give the game a distinctive, hand-crafted look. Games like Guilty Gear and Strider are proof that 2.5D can be handled in a way that honors a classic aesthetic while allowing for new possibilities; that’s what IGA hopes to achieve with this project.
And of course, since it's an Igavania game, the 2D gameplay and feel are nonnegotiable.
Remarkably, I have also set my budget to purchase the $28 Digital Copy Version of this game itself made for Steam! It'll take another two years close enough to have it released. I don't mind it as long I have pledged and supported the fifth game project in Kickstarter.

Elephone P7000 Android 5.0 4G Phablet 5.5 inch FHD Screen MTK6752 64bit 1.7GHz Octa Core Press Touch ID Function
CPU: MediaTek MT6752 64bit 1.7GHz octa-core high-speed processing platform
GPU: ARM MALI-T760
Display: 5.5inch IPS, 1920 x 1080pixels
OS :Android 5.0
Camera: Back-13MP, front-5.0MP
SIM card: Dual SIM （Micro sim and normal sim）
Positioning: GPS, A-GPS
So, here I am again with an actual flagship phablet from the newest brand called Elephone! Have you heard of it? The company started around 2006 and has been growing past these 9 years with all sorts of R&D and marketing developments at their hand. So, I kind of stumbled through various social media websites and saw Elephone as a whole.
They provide different range of smartphone series and they are generally sold at factory price! That's what caught my attention lately. Besides popular brands that popped up since 2014 like Xiaomi , Oppo , Meizu and maybe Ulefone, Elephone have taken their footstep towards the glorious smartphone competitive world and seems to put a remarkable official website for the taking.
Their line of smartphones costed around USD$119.99 by the minimum and mostly are embedded with Octa-Core chip! It's rather cheap as compared to the more expensive range of phones which similar specs. Approximately RM430.62 and you could own one of Elephone's lowest series of smartphone provided.
What I'm trying to show you though is something Elephone call it as their very own "The Annual Flagship" smartphone called P7000. The product specs I have posted above has been dazzling across tech gadget websites and also social media networking areas and it is still growing! I took my time studying the nature of Elephone and it's brand and decided to pre-order one as well. Being the 2015's flagship phone, it is using the latest MediaTek CPU processor of 64-bit while also being 4G LTE capable as a whole.
As I kept on viewing through their flash sales front page and other offers related to P7000, I then confirmed my order which consist of Champagne Gold color to be my next smartphone that I hopefully will not change within two years later. That's exceptional unless I have made significant incomes from my current upcoming job for a change.
Either way, I feel that after deciding to be part of Elephone. I start to feel the cons of Xiaomi phones in the very same price range. There's a lot to talk about it as well namely the RAM issues , CPU being Snapdragon instead of Mediatek and so much more.
But skip that through, I'm now proudly a ready-to-be Elephone P7000 owner by the end of this month! Hopefully it comes around by then or early June 2015. Their pre-order is still ongoing until 21st of May so guys better hurry up because the price will markup back again.

It's about time I announce myself as the true fans of Xiaomi brand. Let's talk brief about my preferences. I started off sawing Xiaomi promotions and advertisement through Facebook and social medias link. To amaze me, the price of their phones were very affordable. So back in 2014, I started to purchase Redmi 1S as a kickstart back in July with Redmi Note 3G in advance. I had a longer span of using them for around a year until recently. I did sold off Redmi 1S around November as I did not used it for around roughly six months. But Redmi Note 3G has been with me until then, Mi 4i will probably be my next mid-range flagship phone. I called it my own flagship but it's not to be confused with the global audiences! Enough for the talk. Let you see my 12th smartphone I am using for almost a decades plus! In future, I might just post screenshots with relevant descriptions for eyecatching tidbits.
The pricing of Rs.12999 leads to approx. RM749 in Malaysia!

Hope you enjoy this short but simple post. It will launch at South East Asia region this coming May 2015. Keep yourself ready!

Announcing GosuCup SEA Hearthstone 2015, now with bigger prize pool and Blizzcon points
GosuGamers is happy to announce that the hugely successful GosuCup SEA series will make its return this April. In cooperation with Blizzard, the tournament will have not only an increased prize pool, but also award valuable World Championship points.
We started the GosuCup SEA initiative in November last year with plans to support the South-East Asian scene on a grass roots level. Over the course of four months, we held 16 tournaments, mixing “regular” and “budget” formats to give everyone with love for Hearthstone a chance to make a name for himself. Every Saturday, hundreds of enthusiast flocked to GosuCup SEA, representing not only themselves, but also their country. National rivalries but also sound friendships were created as the circuit marched towards its grand conclusion.
In late February, we collected the 32 best players in the region and after a long day of spirited card slinging we crowned Aki “AkiSera” Sera as the grand champion of the 2014 circuit. Since then, our inboxes received multiple emails with the same question: “Will there be more?”
As a matter of fact there will be. Much more. Announcing the GosuCup SEA Hearthstone 2015 circuit.
We're back, and bigger!
The 2015 season of GosuCup SEA is the continuation of the hugely successful GosuCup SEA 2014 circuit, designed to support the local scene on a grassroots level. In its new season, GosuCup SEA will be tightly connected with the 2015 World Championship campaign, awarding not only prize money but valuable World Championship points as well. The tournament will be covered on GosuCup.com, the portal that will also contain all relevant information about the circuit.
Every Saturday, players from the SEA region – including Indonesia, India, Malaysia, The Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam – will be free to sign up and compete in one of the 16 open tournaments, spanning between April and July. Compared to the previous season, however, the stakes are now higher:
- $500 in prize money for each cup, which is a five-fold increase compared to 2014. This purse will be split $300 / $100 / $50 for first, second and third/fourth
- World Championship points will be awarded to the best players as follows:
- 1st place: 20 points
- 2nd place: 10 points
- 3rd/4th place: 5 points
- 5-16th place: 1 point
- Modified “Conquest” format will be used in all cups. Players can have one deck per class and upon winning a game, the class will be locked for the remainder of the series
GosuCup SEA 2015 is officially sanctioned and partnered with Blizzard Entertainment Southeast Asia. The series provides more World Championship points especially for SEA players. Prove the strength of the region – sign up, compete and earn your spot in the global finals!
Mark your calendars – GosuCup SEA 2015 is coming soon!
The first GosuCup SEA will be held on April 4th, starting at 14:00 SGT and registrations for it will open one week before that, on March 27th. The initial maximum number of players will be set to 256. However, we’re prepared to increase that maximum should the interest in the tournament be higher.
A new cup will follow every Saturday at 14:00 SGT. Registrations for each cup will open on the Monday before the event at 07:00 SGT.
That concludes my winning records for now! Thank you to Armaggeddon Singapore , Click-Storm for this worthy gift.

At the 27th February, I clinched Top 6 out of 52 participants which isn't an easy run. But it was great winning a fake AMAZ nicknamed user from Singapore and also a good win against aKiSera, the current leading champion player in Malaysia. It proofs that ranks doesn't really matter. Only timing , strategies , deck counters and mindset would lead me this far.
It was my first and foremost best result ever concerning so many SEA players are into play. Excluding the Top 32 finishes from 128 participants back at one of the GosuCup seasons. Back to topic, I lost only to an Indonesian pro called Kev and he was praising me for my aggressive Hunter deck execution. It was a very close game to me! Despite lacking many legendary cards, I am able to put a good fight with them.
The rest of the event, I did not have a good run but at least beaten one or two players especially GosuCup event and also ZOTAC cup which will be held this coming Sunday again! There are news that the earlier stated would have new series coming up again for Hearthstone players in SEA.
I'm ready to join as many in order to put my battle experience into play! Do not mess with my mixed decks as I studied them from time to time to make the best out of it. Just some hype in my article here.

Lately, I researched around Lelong.my to Lazada in order to buy an affordable Tablet PC. It came to my findings that PiPO brand is extraordinary working fine for it's price. Just around RM529, you'll be able to play almost all games within 30FPS or maybe less. Hey? It's the price that's wonderful but to add-on with casing and such it'll cost over RM40 to RM120 based on what your ordering.
So far so good, I just received it and I find it very professionally made.

After much struggles between Rank 10 above back and forth, I have finally within 4 months time accomplished my standard of reaching even lower! Which proofs that I am capable of thwarting a lot of tough opponents.
It was 16th February 2015 where I emerged victorious against a tough Control Priest. The game was pretty stale until I went Doomhammer with my faithful Shaman deck. Of course, my Mech Mage and Aggro Hunter deck will still be around to pull some firepower.
I am glad to have reached so far and this is one of my happiest day because it shows I can cope with a lot of pro players from now on until Legend ranks! In fact, I went on tournaments such as GosuCup to face former Legends and had 1 : 2 scores before losing but overall, I was just warming up and I had by right did a lot better than I was started this game.
Such feeling of progress. I am not sure about you but I believed in never giving up per battle faced!
