[DFO] Dungeon Fighter Online Open Beta Launched!

Dungeon Fighter Online

The long awaited open beta for the Neople self-published global English service of Dungeon Fighter Online was launched on March 24 and will run until April 13. This launch of a global service of the game has been long anticipated, especially so following the shutdown of the game’s North American branch by Nexon America in 2013. Neople has however admitted that the game’s performance in the West has been underwhelming but has committed to pushing forward due in large part to the passion being expressed by the game’s fans. Dungeon Fighter Online is one of the biggest grossing online games ever globally with billions of dollars in lifetime revenue and has logged a global total of over 3 million concurrent users, including over 400 million cumulative registered accounts.

Head over to the official website for more information.

Happy New Year

Happy 2015 one and all. I wish everyone all the best for 2015 and hope that the new year will be better than the last. For those of you who, like myself, feel that due to our own shortcomings 2014 did not end up being as great as it could have been, think of this as a chance to change your approach and attitude and make the most of 2015.

On a blogging note, it’s been over two months since my last post. Even before my last post I had hardly been putting anything out. This is really for two reasons: 1. If you look back through the years at my nearly 1,250 posts you’d notice that there really is hardly anything to blog about anymore in line with what I like to blog and what this blog was created for; 2. It’s been an “interesting” last six months so life really got me in a bit of a tailspin. How will things look in 2015? Hopefully better considering that there should be a bit of a pick up in topics which I am willing to blog about and my own life is getting back firmly on track.
