For the past few weeks we’ve been splitting our time between the player experience revamp and Issue #11.

The revamped experience has expanded slightly in scope by improving the tutorials in the beginning and smoothing out the difficulty curve. When we go back and change things, we also find other ways of improving the early game experience.

There is a fairly long laundry list of changes, but I will attempt to summarize most of the important ones here.”

ejetjestjToday we successfully moved from our old EU server to a newer one in the US. This server has newer hardware, better tools, and was actually cheaper! We will now only need $40 every month to keep it up instead of $50.

In other news, the New York Raid walkthrough is being worked on and will be released soon(tm).

We have also just begun work on revamping the backend system for builds, which will make it a lot easier for us to post new builds on the site! It will also be the basis for our future Deck Builder when we get to that. You can see an unfinished list of abilities here.

If you have any suggestions for content or features, let us know on our forums!

gdl_jan2015“Hello all!

Firstly, notice the snappy title. In the interest of my sanity, I am renaming the GD letters to the name of the month that they are most commonly released in. It makes more sense, it (hopefully) stops people begging for them every month and it satisfies my innermost compulsive being.

Welcome to the new year, and thanks for the old year! I hope everybody had a safe and enjoyable break – I’m still recovering from too much juleøl and pinnekjøtt.

Before we launch into the year that is, I want to take a quick peek at the year that was.”

The Road Ahead

theroadahead2015As 2015 comes around, it’s time to briefly look at what we’ve managed to achieve over the course of this year and what we have in store for the next year.

We opened the website on January 17th earlier this year, about 6 months after work began on the project. We had prepared a decent batch of guides for the site, but the project was still lacking extensivity. Since then we have added hundreds upon hundreds of new walkthoughs, builds, lore lists, rare spawn guides, weapon skin lists and more.

It will be hard to topple this achievement for the year to come, but some of the things we have in store is our very own Gear Calculator, Deck Builder, a monster database and continued work on the other sections. Happy new year everyone!

rsaejrtskjrkHi everybody,
Hectic is the only word I have to describe the past few months. With one hand we’ve been pushing through our Halloween event and the scenario weekend, whilst the other hand has been steadily been making the Issue #10 content.

It gives me a great deal of pleasure to announce that Issue #10 – Nightmares in the Dream Palace will be hitting the live servers very soon (in the first half of December).

Issue #10 is everything that we hope you have come to expect from our Issue content – a chain of new missions that provides a new perspective on the events in Tokyo, a new system and form of progression in the new AEGIS shields, (…)
