Judgment of the Light

Whats up Yugioh fans today is the release of the brand new set called Judgment of the light.

I’ll give some of my thoughts later on when I’m able to experience it more but until then enjoy the new set.

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.

Legendary Collection 4: Joey`s World Announced

tumblr_luq57qWVJJ1r6bwzpo1_400After the massively popular Legendary Collection 3: Yugi`s World, Konami decided to move forward with the Orichalcos saga. 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. Who knows maybe next year Konami will release Kaiba`s World… Here’s hoping.joey_wheeler_face_by_yugiohart-d5ceput

FBG Music Throwback: The Eerie Sounds of Silent Hill

silent_hill_sounds_akira_yamaoka

If you have played Silent Hill games before then you know the atmosphere of the whole saga largely comes from its ambient music, which is normally hard to explain without just describing weird sound effects. If you are a fan of video games music, check this out.

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.

CommenTerry: Cheat Codes and Today

Konamicode

Cheat codes have been one of the most cherished secrets of the gaming age. Since one of the first incarnations of the “Konami Code” on Konami’s ‘Contra,’ cheat codes have gone through many different iterations and uses, some for making the game easier, like providing god mode or weapons and power-ups; to adding challenges like instant enemy spawns or other punishments for players attempting to “cheat.” Today, cheat codes have started fading into the era of yesteryear, and it is a very sad departure that I’ve noticed.

Yugioh Card of the Week

Yu-Gi-Oh_TCG_new_logoWhat up everybody Super Patches here bringing you another card of the week, but this time im gonna do Yugioh. Now to start off this catigory, i have to pick an amazing card that can reak havoc on its own and i thought well theres only one card that can do that, and thats none other then Black Luster Soldier – Envoy of the Beginning.
BlackLusterSoldierEnvoyoftheBeginning-GLD4-EN-GUR-LE
This card sets the standerd for being amazing and unstopable. With an attack going to 3000 and a def at 2500 this card can not be taken down head on from attacks easily. But what make s this card great is not just the attack, but the amazing effect that comes with it. The first part of his effect is that he can only be special summond from your hand by removing from play one light and one dark type monster from your graveyard. Yup so no trying to save your monsters to sacrifice you can just get rid of the ones that were already used in your graveyard to bring out this beast. The second part of the effect is even cooler and you can choose between two options at this part. the first part is that once per turn you can remove one monster from play no matter what position, but if you do you cannot attack with him. The second part is that if he attacks and destroys a monster as a result he can attack once again in a row. Yup a remove from play and a double attack effect all in one card. not to mention that he can be special summond. Like i said this card is a beast, so you need to find some copies before he gets banned again.
