Yu-Gi-Oh Legendary Collection Joeys World Review


I have been waiting for a new legendary collection ever since Yugis World was released last year and what a great set to follow it up with. Joeys World brings some great cards from a whole bunch of opponents that Joey had faced in the past. This set includes cards from Rex Raptor, Mai Valentine, Bandit Keith, Bones, Espa Roba, Weevil Underwood, and of course Marik Ishtar. All were very powerful duelist that pushed Joey passed his own limits to become a better duelist and ended up becoming one of the greatest of all time in my book. Like I said this set includes the key cards of his opponents and a lot of Joeys cards that have been reprinted into different rarities. So my friends from Konami sent over a set so I can tell you what I think of them.

Yugioh Number Hunters Review

numberhuntersbooster1eHello fellow gamers on FBG and welcome to the first of hopefully many TCG reviews. This week my friends from Konami sent over some packs to check out and give you guys a review of what I think about them. This week they sent me over some packs of the recently released Number Hunters. This a 60 card set containing 20 secret rates and 40 super rates. These packs are very similar to the Hidden Arsenal sets in the way of 5 cards per pack, 4 super and 1 secret rare , and most cards in the set can be used in todays decks. This set follows the number cards which is based on the tv show Yu-Gi-Oh Zexal, where the main character Yuma Tsukumo is trying to find these number cards for his alien friend Astral, as each number card holds part of his memory, the crew need to find them all and get them back to Astral before they wind up in the wrong hands.

This set will bring cards from all of joeys past from duelist kingdom, battle city, and waking the dragons story lines. This set will contain almost 300 cards from the past duelists such as joey, Mai, Marik, and Rex. Each box will contain 3 brand new cards never released yet in the Yugioh card game series. Joey`s Blue Flame Swordsman, Mai`s Harpie Lady Phoenix Formation, and Marik`s Cards of Last Will will all be included in each box, no word yet about the release of the dragon cards from waking the dragons storyline yet. (Side note) due to the awesome power of the card, Cards of Last Will, it will not be tournament legal but it will still be good to use in a Marik Theme deck against your friends. If the set is packaged the same way as the previous set, they will most likely include more promo cards, a game mat, and 5 Legendary Collection 4: Joey`s World Mega Pack. Each pack should have 5 commons 1 rare, 1 super rare, 1 ultra rare, and 1 secret rare. No set release date was confirmed yet, but Konami Said sometime in October 2013.

Akira Yamaoka, was the composer/sound-director of the Silent Hill saga for a decade -excluding Silent Hill: Downpour-. He strived to render an atmosphere, to emphasize every single discomforting factor and induce suspense, fear, or disgust.
