Have a Merry LU! Christmas!

As a way of saying thanks for all the support our loyal community has given Level Up!, we’re launching our very first Christmas online show, LIVE! The Show: Merry LU! Christmas! on Dec. 15-19.

Time sure flies. We launched our very first Level Up! Live Blog on Oct. 4 during the Road to LIVE/Ragnarok Philippine Championships 2008 at the SM Mall of Asia.

Then, for the very first time, we had an official Live Blog and live video stream for Level Up! LIVE 2008, the country’s biggest online gaming event, which we held on Oct. 18 and 19 at the World Trade Center. LIVE 2008 drew a crowd of over 20, 000 at the WTC, while the live video stream was seen by 55, 000 viewers from 27 countries and the Live Blog was read by more than 12, 000 unique users.

It’s this kind of online success and overwhelming support of the LU! community that led us to launching another milestone — our very first online show, Reliving LIVE: The LIVE 2008 Experience. This time, we were creating an online project even in the absence of a major offline event, combining video footage from LIVE 2008 with live video segments in our studio, tying all this together with a Live Blog. Again, we were touched by the support of the community, who urged us to launch another online show this Christmas and in fact make online shows and video chat sessions with our GMs and other guests a regular offering.

We aim to please, and so here we are with LIVE! The Show: Merry LU! Christmas! This is our Christmas gift to the LU! community, so you can be sure we have a lot of fun segments, cool giveaways and exciting surprises in store for our viewers. So tell all your friends about it and make sure you watch our online show, which starts on Dec. 15 at 10 am, Philippine Standard Time.

In fact, you can use this e-mail reminder, so you won’t forget the date 🙂

Thanks again to the members of our Multimedia team — Online Platforms Manager Kevin Codamon, Producer Niel Caruncho, Editorial Assistant Mel Villanueva, and Video Specialist Gelo Obosa — for all the hard work, passion and creativity they’ve poured into our portal and our online shows.

We’ll have segments for our different games — Ragnarok, RF Online, FlyFF, FreeStyle, Perfect World, Crazy Kart, and Grand Chase — plus find out more about the two new games Level Up! is bringing to the Philippines, Rohan Online and Hello Kitty Online.

Even if you’ve yet to play one of our games, I’m sure you’ll find the show entertaining and it will give you an idea of how fun online gaming is and how much it has become part of the lives of many Filipinos, particularly among the youth.

So keep visiting the Merry LU! Christmas! page to find out the complete sked and confirmed guests.

Sama na kayo, and have yourself a Merry LU! Christmas! 🙂

Have a Merry LU! Christmas!

Ragnarok ‘n’ roll music

Here’s an excerpt from my latest Play to Win blog post.

Aminin na natin, di ba mas masarap kung habang naglalaro tayo e nakikinig din tayo ng music?

Obviously, not all music lovers are gamers, but it’s almost a sure bet that if you’re a gamer, mahilig ka sa music. Music plays an important role in your game experience. How much more satisfying is it to slay monsters if you’re all pumped up by the stirring soundtrack? What would survival horror games be without the mood-setting creepy music and sound effects?

Don’t believe me? Then try playing the game na naka-mute yung PC, TV or handheld mo. Di ba boring? 🙂
