Merry Xmas and Happy New year to all!

Holiday greetings to you all :)

More walkthroughs and games next year so stay safe and enjoy the holidays!


Thursday, December 3, 2009

Update at last?

Hi guys,

How are ye? Well the holidays are coming and there are hell lot of games released and choose from. I've been on a long hiatus from writing guides because of my dragging contractual projects (which is still UNFINISHED) so to avoid getting bored, I have accepted a long due exclusive project from IGN. Thanks to our notoriously fast postal service, I received the game that was sent last 10/29 just a few days ago. In any case, let me wrap up a few stuff that happened while I was gone.

  • Remember my 360 that got 3RL'd for the second time? Well its alive again. Had to pay $24 for a local technician to defrib it back to life. Suck that MS, looks like I won't be buying a new 360 anytime soon.
  • I am getting a PS3 this afternoon so I'll get the chance that I can play online (free) with my friends through the PSN network. Its a used 320GB, Japan model.
  • Magna Carta 2 is my next exclusive and even if it garnered a not-so-appreciative review scores, I am willing to try it out. I've been a few hours in the game and I haven't found any major turnoffs... yet. Well I hope its not as lame and boring as The Last Remnant.
That's it for now and I hope you're all well as you read this. Ciao!

FAQ Writer of the Month: VHayste

Sup guys,

Sorry for not being able to update anything. I am terribly busy and absorbed with Aion, not just by playing it but by writing 3, full-length guides for it. It's been a month now that I've been only sleeping 2-4 hours a day to play, write, go to work and other stuff.

And for the meantime, I was lucky enough to be selected as IGN's faq writer of the month for October. The prize for having such honor is any item from my game/movie wishlist. My choice? Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. Here's the link for the interview.

Oh yeah. You won't see me online in XBL but you can catch me as an Elyos Chanter in Aion, Nezekan Server (Legion: Republika) or as an Asmodian Templar in Ariel. (Legion: Archons of Asmodae)

I'm planning to get my normal life back as soon as I finish those guides in Aion :) Thanks guys, and to all those who drop by my page.

Dissidia Final Fantasy PDF Walkthrough Updated!

Howdy-ho friends! The latest version of the FF Dissidia Walkthrough has been released. It covers up to Destiny Odyssey VIII (Squall). You may download it here.

We've been pretty much hit hard by typhoon Ketsana but fortunately, my community only suffered power failures, water shortage and internet downtime. I want to dedicate this humble post to pay respects to the unfortunate victims of this calamity.

And as we are still recuperating from the effects of Ketsana, there is another storm brewing and possibly hit us again. Our country enters the Rainy Season starting from July to December and typhoons are just normal for us. However, for the past few years, more typhoons start to show up and with varying intensity. Ketsana is just a minor typhoon (by our standards) - something that normally won't bother us except for minor annoyances. But what it left in its wake is truly devastating and unbelievable. There are no strong winds - just an insane amount of rainfall. Imagine, even the elevated areas that never experienced flooding before went underwater in a few hours of continuous rainfall. Small creeks turned into wild rivers. Rivers turned into torrents of debris, mud, bodies, trees and even whole houses. They even overflowed over bridges - something that never happened before.

This is just the beginning and I am truly convinced that this is one obvious and horrifying proof of global warming. These freak weather behaviors are something that we can't control nor prevent. And of course, no one is safe... its generally our fault anyway.

Take care guys.

Aion starting next week!

Guys, since Aion will be released next week, I just want to say that I'll be playing as myself in the Oceanic server Nezekan. I'll be an Elyos Chanter there.

In the other hand, I'll also play as an Asmodian Templar probably on any of the US servers so if you're playing the game and if you want to hang out, you can just give me a ping.

In any case, I will also get a new laptop next week. I am expecting it to help me expedite my guide writing for here on, eliminating the pen-paper-encode routine.

I will be releasing an update for Final Fantasy Dissidia by Monday. Crimson Gem Saga is currently on temporary hold since I need to prioritize contractual and exclusive projects before my indie works.

That's it for this week... stay tuned :)

Final Fantasy Dissidia Walkthrough released


Erm, sorry. Just finished watching Rosario Vampire Capu 2 while writing this blog and I can't get that bewbilicious Kurumu out of my head. Anyway, this is a rush job release so the content is fairly limited. You can download this guide exclusively from IGN. It covers Destiny Odysseys I and II (Warrior of Light and Firion's stories), including a quickstart section.

More content to be released this coming days. Thanks!

Crimson Gem Saga PDF walkthrough released

Hi Guys,

Its been a while since I've released a free guide so here's a treat for you all. You can download the PDF guide for Crimson Gem Saga from the following links:


It is still not yet finished but I am hoping to complete it before the month ends.

IGN has also assigned me to cover Final Fantasy Dissidia so I'll probably work on it during the weekends and release a draft early next week.

For the meantime, I am currently working heavily on the Kinah and Chanter guides for the most anticipated MMORPG of this year... Aion. Due to the some major name changes, the Kinah guide will undergo a major facelift while the Chanter guide is... well an guaranteed, extensive guide for building and powerleveling your Chanter.

Unfortunately these guides are contract projects of, which means I have no right to distribute it free. You may purchase it from them though.


Monday, August 31, 2009


Hi guys,

I know its been a while so I'll just be posting to give you some new updates. First of all, I just want to be thankful that I am still alive right now after my motorcycle crashed into a Toyota Corolla when I was going home from work. Fortunately, my speed and angle of impact isn't that severe to cause too much damage to myself, my mc and the other car. I won't get into the details but at least it proves how important wearing a helmet and protective jacket or armor can do for you. I suffered no scratches nor wounds just minor beatings to certain parts of my body, particularly my left shoulder, foot, side and arm. I was thrown six feet away from my mc after the impact and my armor and helmet took most of the beating. My injuries won't be that minor if it weren't for my protective gear. This is my first accident and it is really an eye-opener for me.

And so there you have it. My advise to my fellow bikers/ riders? Don't underestimate the benefits of wearing helmets and protective gears can do for you. Even if you're just traveling a short distance, it pays to be cautious. As you can see, even if you're a safe driver, accidents happen to everybody - no exemptions.

- Just finished the kinah guide for Aion for Levels 1-20. I am now waiting for the game's full release in late September to work on the remaining levels... which will surely take a hell lot of time.

- Currently working on a free PDF guide for the PSP game "Crimson Gem Saga". I may release the first draft later this week.

- I won't be working on a Persona PSP guide for Double Jump books anymore because of the several complications:
  • The pre-release copy of the game requires OFW (official firmware) 5.55. As you know, my PSP has CFW (custom firmware) and it won't play the pre-release iso DJBooks sent me. Remember that all new games released will require OFW 5.55 as an anti-piracy move by Sony.
  • CFW 5.55 is still currently being developed by a professional team of PSP hackers and it may be inbound next week.
  • In order to play the game, I need an unmodded PSP Slim. Why? The screenshot plugins I use to take in-game screenshots require CFWs. To take screenshots in unmodded PSPs, you'll need the video out function of the PSP Slim and connect it to a video capture card on your PC. (Which I have, Gamebridge used originally for the PS2)
  • The deadline for the Persona PSP guide should be today. However, due to time constraints they're assigning the project to another author.
So there you go... I am really an unlucky guy this month. I've lost a project, got myself a broken MC, haven't paid my debts yet, need to pay my brother's college tuition and handle the monthly expenses.

Thanks to Darren B for his recent donation :)

Take care guys. Be thankful of little things... like being alive. It's priceless!

Wednesday, August 19, 2009

Some news... that at least made my day.

Hi guys,

Im almost done with the 1-month long Kinah Guide for the MMO Aion. The last closed beta has finished last Monday and expect to see me when the game has been fully released. You'll know me as the generous Chanter or Cleric that will help your sorry ass in danger in case I'm around.
And so I'll just update this blog to let you guys know that I'm still alive. I am planning to go on hiatus maybe after I win our national lottery. If I win.

As for Persona PSP, the original plan was to work on it early this month. However, things didn't go as smoothly as expected so me and my publisher (Doublejump Books) have requested Atlus for a pre-release UMD of the game. No news of it yet.

Also, as I posted on my last blog, my Xbox 360 died because of the recent XBL update. It seems that it may happen on very remote occasions only and it just happened that I am that lucky guy. Now the money I saved to buy a new laptop or PS3 will be used to buy a replacement 360. Damn it.

Here are some of the news I've seen that at the least, made my day:

Persona 3 coming to PSP with new female character

Persona/ Shin Megami Tensei is probably the series I really loved the most. The details are slim but I really hope that they incorporate some of Persona 4's features. Is there any chance that we can also play as a nameless, female lead? I wonder. In any case, one thing is for sure. Since this is a port, expect added features and extras.

PS3 SLim to be released in the first week of September

It's been a long rumor that came true. Actually, its one of the worst kept secrets that are easily leaked and smuggled. Heck, the first PS3 slim I've seen on the market is sold here in the Philippines since early June. I just don't know if its the real deal though. In any case, I personally liked the slim design, as well as the lesser amount of power it consumes and the lesser space it needs.

PS3 Price Drop Confirmed
For me that waited for a price drop since the console's launch, this is really great news. The only bad thing is that the money I saved to buy a PS3 will be used to get a replacement 360.

At that's all for the meantime folks. I promise to post something up once I've recollected my splattered thoughts because of grinding and lack of sleep. Ciao.

Note to would be critics

Note to would be critics: We writers play and write what we have experienced in the game, so we may have our own tactics and approach to various situations. That means you may have your own style of playing the game. Walkthroughs are not meant to dictate your entire gameplay but to provide insights that may help you devise your own tactics or give your directions.

That said, it would be unfair to lambast our work just because you think that your style is better or superior than ours. If you have something to say, email it to us authors; not badmouth us in forums. Our walkthroughs may not be as “great” as some of the guides from certain sites but that doesn't change the fact that you, “critics”, can't dedicate hours of labor to play and write walkthroughs as we do. If you have time to criticize somebody's work from being incomplete or for having “inferior” tactics, then why don't you write your own walkthroughs and prove that you're better?

We don't have problems if you guys cite something missing or incorrect about the walkthroughs we write; it even gives us the opportunity to improve our work. What we can't accept however are those who love to reproach other's people's work mindlessly, without consideration.

Friday, July 24, 2009

Just a quick update!

Hi guys,

I've received emails from some caring readers that were quite worried that I'll be stopping from releasing free guides for good. Well, I am just going to clarify today that I won't quit from writing free walkthroughs and quality PDF guides you loved. It's just that I won't be able to release them as frequent as before since I will be prioritizing my contractual projects.

Thanks again for the emails and comments!

~ Paul

New offer

Guys, I know you're not that many reading this humble blog post of mine but just to let you know, I got another amazing offer to become a contractual author for one of the major game guide publishers: Doublejump Books. If you haven't heard of them yet, they are the ones that sells official game guides from major titles. Also, if you can remember that last two months, I've also signed a contract with another website selling online unofficial guides. The projects they would want me to work on are Persona (PSP) and A Witch's Tale (DS). As you may know, I am really a Persona and Shin Megami Tensei fan and I am really planning to work on Persona in the first place so this is really good timing.

The good thing about this is that the pay is really good. The bad thing however is that I won't be able to work on free/ independent projects anymore. Oh well, everybody needs money right?

If you have wasted a minute of your life reading this... thank you. VERY MUCH.

Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor (DS) PDF walkthrough, released!

Ahoy guys, long time no post. The IGN-exclusive PDF walkthrough for Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor (DS) is online. You can download it only here. I am currently working on an illustrated PDF guide for Crimson Gem Saga for the PSP; first draft is expected to be released next week.

That's all for now.


Tuesday, July 7, 2009

Just a minor update

Sorry for having no updates this week guys. Rest assured I am already working on SMT: Devil Survivor for the DS. It's an imageless PDF guide (like what I have been releasing recently) but at least the formatting are retained, making stuff easier to read and arrange.

I have asked to do some research and write some articles about the classes in the upcoming online game called Aion. If you are interested, you can view the articles here. It looks mighty good and might be a good WoW competitor. I am still undecided if I'll conquer the online gaming world. I'll release Devil Survivor once the content is good enough already.

Also, I have released a walkthrough for Fallout 3 DLC: Point Lookout. It will be added to the exclusive walkthrough I have written for so previous costumers that purchased the guide will receive it as a free update. I may release a free version of the walkthrough but for now, I'll just keep it as an exclusive.

Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia (PDF) walkthrough released!

You may download the PDF walkthrough here. You may also download the high-resolution version of the maps featured in this guide individually here.

Luminous Arc 2 Walkthrough Updated!

Yep, the walkthrough has been completed. You may download it here. You can also find them in Chaptercheats and IGN. And I'm off to my next project. And NO... this is not a wedding-sim game. It is an Strategy-RPG game for the Nintendo DS. Mind you.

Currently working on...

[rant]Damn you, Philpost... my package from Hong Kong hasn't arrived yet! It's been 7 weeks already! Are you still doing your jobs?! YOU GUYS FREAKIN' SUCK!!!! DAMN YOU!![/end.rant]

Whew, thanks guys. Cya.

Tuesday, June 9, 2009

New Release: Luminous Arc 2 (DS)

Yep, this is just a minor release - I am busy completing quick filler walkthroughs as I wait for my major projects and assignments. You can download the guide here. This is pretty much an ongoing project so I will be updating the download link once the update is released.

I am also working on Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia maps - and maybe a walkthrough if I finish LA2 quickly. I am planning on working on another illustrated walkthrough for Crimson Gem Sage for the PSP but I won't promise anything yet.

Resistance Retribution (PSP) PDF Walkthrough Released!

Howdy folks... Just wanna announce that my PDF guide for Resistance Retribution (PSP) has been released. Thankfully, I was able to find a working screenshot plugin for my PSP after updating its firmware. You may download the guide here. I have text version available in Gamefaqs and Chaptercheats in case you guys prefer the traditional format.

Anyways, I'll be working on my next project. See ya!


Tuesday, May 26, 2009

Latest Update!

Yep, its been a while. I have finally finished my contractual project for Fallout 3 and I am expecting it to be released online today in So if you are looking for a comprehensive walkthrough that covers all three DLCs and dedicated sections for sidequests, miscellaneous quests, etc, you may purchase the guide for around $25.99 (if Im not mistaken) Since I can't really leave the "free guides" scene, I have written separate walkthroughs for Fallout DLCs and a Unique Weapons guide that will assist you in collecting most, if not all, unique weapons in the game. You can download them using the links provided below:

Fallout 3
Operation Anchorage Walkthrough
The Pitt Walkthrough
Broken Stell Walkthrough
Unique Weapons Guide

In the other hand, Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume for the DS is already completed, though I am still inclined to update it since, like the previous VP game for the PSP, this game also has three endings, depending on how you progressed through the plot so I am in my second playthrough verifying that.


And finally, thank you to Ivar of Norway for his generous donation. (He was the *first* one that actually donated so I am quite surprised and equally thankful) - I really appreciate it. So if you guys have been stroked with a bit of kindness, your support will be greatly appreciated!

17 Sexiest Video Game MILFS

Since I don't have any new guides for the last weeks and the following weeks, I'll just be borrowing some articles which I personally find interesting. I do have reserved "free" projects but sorry, my priority right now is to finish my contractual project with

The list below is not my personal choice. However, my top 5 will be:

1. Sophitia
2. Samus
3. Tifa
4. Sarah
5. Nina


Original article can be viewed here:

#17: Sonia Belmont (Castlevania)
Mother of the entire Belmont Clan.

Sonia Belmont's had a rough history, or rather, a complete lack of one. After her adventures on the Game Boy, the series retconned her out of existence. What a change that makes, though, since Sonia was originally billed to be the first Belmont that defeated Dracula, going on to sire the Belmont Clan, starting with little Trevor. Oh yeah, and Trevor's Dad? None other than the famous Alucard himself.

#16: Jun Kazuma (Tekken)
Mother of Tekken protagonist Jin Kazama.

Hey, Jun hasn't been in a game since Tekken Tag Tournament (and she was dead after the events of Tekken 2), but she's still looking after her kid. Every series, she shows up in some spirit form or another to guide poor Jin in his quest to topple his a**hole-ish granddad. Talk about committed parenting.

#15: Tifa (Final Fantasy)
Well, she kind of adopted some kids in the FFVII movie.

Apparently, Geostigma is code word for "infertility," since Cloud and Tifa shacked up for two years and no little Avalanche Soldiers were running around. Of course, this doesn't stop Tifa, since she just decided to adopt a couple of kids anyway. Tifa's a real trooper too, since Cloud's apparently been spending his free time brooding over some dead girl.

#14: Sarah Sisulart (Lost Odyssey)
Grandmother of the irritating Cookie and Mack.

Technically, Ms. Sisulart's the oldest MILF on the entire list, although being an immortal being make this a very unfair statistic. We would've ranked her higher on the list if she wasn't responsible for those damn grandkids of hers. We HATE Cookie and Mack. HATE. Who the Hell names their kid after a snack food anyway?

#13: The Boss (Metal Gear)
Naked Snake's adoptive mother figure. (Spoiler Alert: She's also Revolver Ocelot's mom!)

The Boss may be pushing her older years, but you can't deny that this tough-as-nails war heroine is hotter than most things you'll see on the battlefield. Despite kicking Naked Snake's ass up and down the Russian countryside, she was always looking out for her non-biological son. Yes, even when she cut out the poor guy's eyeball.

#12: Matriarch Benezia (Mass Effect)
Liara's T'Soni's mother. Well, technically. The Asaris are pretty much all women.

If Benezia's assets are any indication, Liara's in for one heck of a "growth spurt" come the events of Mass Effect 2. Taking her down this powerful space psychic was no joke, either, since she can easily kill an entire party with little effort. Maybe she stores her power in her giant thingies.

#11: Princess Rosalina (Super Mario Galaxy)
Adoptive mother of the Lumas, Mom of the Galaxy.

OK, so adopting a bunch of little Lumas is a bit far-fectched but it does give Princess Rosalina one of the biggest families in this galactic group. Besides, she's definitely some serious competition in the Mushroom Princess's lovelife. Just wait until Rosalina gets kidnapped by Bowser and starts sending the Mario Bros. on more fetch quests.

#10: Princess Peach (Super Mario)
Adoptive mother of the Mushroom Kingdom & the Koopa Kids.

Well, come on. She's been getting "kidnapped" by Bowser for over 20 years. Those Koopa Kids didn't from from a freakin' stork.

#9: Sorceress Edea/Ultimecia (Ultimecia)
Moonlights as a foster mom to orphanage kids (Awwwww!).

Okay, it's kind of a roundabout story, but basically, Sorceress Edea was the kind owner of a kids shelter before big bad Ultimecia came along and made her all crazy. But, that job affiliation definitely classifies her as a mom. Besides, she's undoubtedly hotter when she's evil.

#8: Lulu (Final Fantasy)
Strangely enough, mother of Wakka's child.

This is actually the biggest twist in Final Fantasy X. No, not the whole "Tidus is the dream of a lost civilization's soul" or whatever that crap was. No, she and Wakka had a kid. Which means that they got down. And DID things. Sexually.

#7: Michelle Chang (Tekken)
Foster parent of Julia Chang.

She's hasn't been in any games since Tekken Tag, but this feisty Native-Chinese-American definitely knows how to pass on her looks and style. Rowr. Who needs genetics?

#6: Sindel (Mortal Kombat)
Mother of Kitana, Bride of (ick) Shao Khan.

You've got to hand it to Sindel. Despite dying, getting forcibly revived, then brainwashed and fooled into becoming the bride of a guy with the face of a crocodile, this old queen is still fighting her ex-hubby across Outworld and back. That's one heck of a messy marriage, but at least she got more than half the house and furniture.

#5: Samus Aran (Metroid)
Adoptive mom to the famous Metroid Hatchling.

Okay, now this is really touching. Samus's die-hard mission of extermination grinds to a halt when she discovers a little baby Metroid, and as those good 'ol maternal instincts kick in, she takes the critter with her. Unfortunately, not a day passes before Ridley brings down a space station and kidnaps the 'lil guy. Like a mother enraged, Samus essentially kills a WHOLE PLANET looking for her "baby," only to get saved by her adopted kid at the most climatic moment possible. Sniff. That's a great story.

#4: Crimson Viper (Street Fighter)
Apparently has a daughter. Who knew?

Mmm, Crimson Viper, you're so much hotter than your real-life counterpart. You know that someone's been reading their parenting book when they take the time to call their kids after kicking someone's ass in a street fight. Crimson Viper's a mom on the go, but she's still never too busy to call home.

#3: Nina Williams (Tekken)
Mother of Steve Fox, thanks to SCIENCE!

Okay, so Nina's not going to win any Mother of the Year contests, especially since she spent most of Tekken 4 trying to assassinate her own kid. Still, she didn't know that Steve was her son, and most importantly, Steve's kind of annoying anyway. Why couldn't Nina have had a younger, hotter daughter like Michelle Chang did, anyway?

#2: EVA (Metal Gear)
Mother of Solid Snake and Liquid Snake (Oh, um, Spoiler!)

Snake Eater was definitely a James Bond movie built for the PlayStation, and EVA made one Hell of a Bond Girl. Even though she's pushing 70 by the time Guns of the Patriots rolled around "Big Mama" was still busting her combat suit's bra, packing serious heat and riding motorcycles like a pro. Some things just get better with age.

#1: Sophitia (Soul Calibur)
Competed in the Soul Calibur Tournament to protect her daughter. Nevermind about that, though. Just look at the picture.

Star Ocean Last Hope PDF walkthrough updated!

Right... just finished and uploaded the most recent version of the PDF guide. The latest addition is the complete guide to the Cave of the Seven Stars. I find completing the Wandering Dungeon as too time consuming, considering that I already invested 100+ hours in the game so I'll just add it when I have free time.

You may download it here and the high-resolution maps here.

I will be spending the next few days catching up with the deadline of my contractual project so there could be no new free guides to be released in the coming weeks. I guess.

~~ Paul

Tuesday, April 21, 2009

Star Ocean Last Hope PDF walkthrough completed!

Yep, it's almost completed. The walkthrough covers the main game. I am still working my way on the Cave of the Seven Stars so I may update the guide once I finish a section for that. You may download the guide here and the high resolution maps here.

I'll just keep this brief since I have some deadlines to catch. Ciao.

Friday, April 17, 2009

Another year older.

Yep, just turned a year older today. I will be giving away two discount coupons from Play-asia worth $5 dollars each ($50 minimum purchase). Sorry, that's only what I can afford at the moment. Kindly use my affiliate link when ordering.

The numbers below are on the first come, first serve basis. If any of these two doesn't work anymore when you use it, that means somebody already used it before you. The expiration date of these coupons will be on April 25, 2009. I will be giving away similar discount coupon numbers in the future, so watch out for those!

Thank you!


Now, to test ride my new bike. It's not your mighty beautiful and expensive big bikes... just a medium underbone to be used for medium-long travels. My Honda XRM I christened as Faragut.

Updated: Star Ocean Last Hope PDF Walkthrough

Hello gang. The updated version of the guide has just been released. It now covers everything from the start to just before the clearing the Grigori from En II's Sanctuary. You may download the guide here. Don't forget to check out the new hi-res maps as featured in the guide.

* Just signed the contract *

Yep, I just signed the contract to write gaming guides for a site. Those guides are NOT free but since I am getting paid for those, I will put extra effort to make them worth it. If I don't have any assignments, I may release free IGN exclusives or even bother making independent releases. Maybe.

Thanks to those that supported me so far; just by saying simple 'Thank you's' is enough to ease the effort, time and resources I've spent on the guides.


Tuesday, April 7, 2009

Star Ocean Last Hope PDF walkthrough updated!

Ola, kids. The updated version of the PDF walkthrough is now released. It covers the story up to before you rescue Sarah in the Purgatorium and after getting a new *hottie* party member. You may download the guide exclusively here.

Like before, you can download the high-resolution maps featured in the guide here.

End of free pdf walkthroughs/guides?

I got a very interesting offer from a third party website, specializing in writing game guides. The payment they offered for my services is really generous, compared to what I am doing right now so I am inclined on accepting their offer. Since they'll be paying for my services, that means the guide I will be writing MUST be purchased by the user. Will this be the end of the free PDF guides I distribute?

Unless there are some things that will convince to stay what I am doing now, I am afraid I have no choice but to pick the obvious. Well, let's see...

Tuesday, March 31, 2009

New Walkthroughs released!

At last folks, my first major update of the year. Please see the updates below:

Star Ocean: Last Hope PDF Walkthrough released!

The guide covers up to the entrance of the Cardianon Control Tower. A quickstart/basics section has been added as well for new players. And how about a nice cover to start it all?

You can download the PDF guide exclusively here.

Since I need to compress the images on my guide, the quality of the maps may be affected as well. They are readable but what if you can download those maps individually, in high resolution?

Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume Walkthrough Released!

The walkthrough is in the conventional text format. It covers up to Chapter 3, with all branches taken. A Character Guide section has been included as well for reference. You may download the file here.

Fallout 3: Behemoth Hunting Guide, Bobblehead Locations Guide (PDF) released!


Behemoth Hunting Guide
Bobblehead Locations Guide

Persona 4 PDF Walkthrough Updated!

And finally, *probably* the last update of the SMT: Persona 4 PDF walkthrough. I have added two new sections (Fishing and TV Shopping) and made some minor corrections pointed out by readers (thanks guys.) You may download it here.

That's it folks. Till the next update!


Friday, March 20, 2009

Coming soon *updated* 3/26

Update 3/26:

Yep, I just got Star Ocean: Last Hope yesterday and I am already working nonstop to get it posted by the end of the week. Yes, it's a rush job but don't worry; I assure you the quality of the guide won't be affected. You guys know how I work, right? :)

I am targeting to post a release announcement early next week, so keep your fingers crossed kiddos. Thank you for visiting :)

Coming soon:

~~ Vhayste
Sorry guys for not updating anything for the past weeks. Sadly, Star Ocean 4 hasn't arrived yet even if it was shipped last Feb.26. I will posting something on Monday or Tuesday, since I will be doing some projects during the weekends. I am glad to announce that I have acquired MOST of the games listed on my wishlist, primarily for the DS so watch out for that. I've spend the past few weeks playing Fallout3 and after 3 playthroughs, I was able to get the full score (1000 pts) for the core game.

I'll keep you posted guys. See ya.

Persona 4 PDF Walkthrough completed

EDIT (03/03/09):

The link should working now. Somehow when I submitted my guide last Friday, it didn't make it to their weekly deadline. Sorry for the inconvenience.


Whew at last! This is as complete as it gets. The "True Ending" has been completed. Post-game Notes section is also added. You may download the walkthrough here. Also, as a bonus, I have uploaded a compilation of the raw scans from the P4 artbook. You may download it here.

The guide has 171 pages and 9.5MB large. Pretty compact, eh?

Also... I can't believe most of you guys have the same taste as mine... I love Yukiko. Though I would take home Margaret if ever Yukiko is not around. *smirk*

Please support me with my future projects and walkthroughs.

Writing walkthroughs is never been easy. Writers like me dedicate countless hours of our lives to play the games and write walkthroughs for them. Not to mention sleepless nights, frustrations, personal expenses and sometimes, sacrificing social times with friends and families. Our dedication and motivation comes from you, our readers. With the increasing cost in expenses (and the global financial crisis), I will have to resort to request assistance from you, kind-hearted readers. You may support my work in many ways:

1. Donations via Paypal

If you can spare me a dollar or two, that will go a long way in helping buy new games to write walkthroughs for. Or even use the funds to pay for my electric bills.

You can send your donations to: or simply click the donate button in the top right of this page.

2. Ordering stuff from Play-Asia

Yes, just by ordering stuff from them, I get a smallcomission - no matter what item it is. They have a variety of items, games, toys, guides and collectibles. Just simply visit the site by using my affiliate link below:

3. Viewing my posted guides/walkthroughs @

This is probably the easiest thing you can do to help :) Just visit the site and view/ download the walkthroughs there. I earn a little percentage for all the total views to my guides so just by spending a few seconds, you are actually helping me in your own way.

4. Showing your appreciation

This is probably the simplest, and cheapest thing to do. A simple "Thank you" email means a lot to me, since it tells me that there are people out there that appreciate my hard work. Though it won't help financially, it is still a big deal by giving me "moral support". :)

Persona 4 Walkthrough updated!

The main walkthrough is finished. The Quests and Social Link sections has been completed as well. I am still finishing the guide for the optional dungeon, as well as the post-game notes. Sorry if I haven't updated the Star Ocean guide since I dedicated my entire week to finish P4.

You may download the guide here. If you can't view the updated version, try again a little later since I just uploaded the guide a few hours ago.

Walkthrough updates

Here's another update guys. I'll be going on vacation for the next few days. It doesn't mean that the updates will be delayed; its just that the quantity of the content that will be added may be lessened. Anyway, even after I finish these games, I'll still do a second playthrough for both. See yah.


The guide now covers all events up to 9/10. The Quest and Social Link sections has been updated as well. You may download the guide here.

The guide's coverage is right after defeating the 3 wise men in Phynal. It also contains additional info on how to get the following characters:

1. Noel
2. Chisato
Expect more updates in a few days' time. You may download the guide here. If you can't see the updated versions, please try again a little later since I just uploaded them after a few hours ago.

Don't ever, ever buy game e-guides from Ebay or any auction site. Most of the time, these are blatantly stolen works of hardworking authors that contribute to several gaming sites. These guides should be free, regardless of format. I have a friend and fellow game writer that has her walkthrough stolen, plagiarized and sold in Ebay for $5.99. Please report any similar incidents to the authors. We writers dedicate countless hours of our lives, energy and resources just to deliver you quality content and help for the games you love. It is infuriating to have some gutless idiot to take advantage of someone else's hard work.
