One Piece: Burning Blood Review - PlayStation 4 - The Gamers' Temple

One Piece: Burning Blood Review - PlayStation 4 - The Gamers' Temple

Didn't like the game much, but the anime/manga the game is based off of looks really nice.  I've heard many good things about One Piece in the past.  This game was my first experience with the franchise.

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 Review - Xbox One - The Gamers' Temple

Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 Review - Xbox One - The Gamers' Temple

Such a fantastic game. After playing this Naruto, I finally caved in and ordered the first few volumes of the anime series. It's really got some great characters.

I guess I can say that I'm an official Naruto fan now!

Resident Evil Revelations 2 Guide

Hi there! Long time no post. Yeah, I'm still alive, I've just been busy with work on Neoseeker and dealing with life in general. I'm still writing for games, but I don't spend as much time on it as I used to. And yeah, I still try to write for RE games whenever possible, so I decided to tackle Resident Evil Revelations 2 for Neoseeker. This is an exclusive Neoseeker guide since I work there now.

Unlike my past guides, this one has a bunch of HTML formatting and I'll be adding many pictures to it as well. I already have up some pics for collectible locations, but once I'm done with the writing part, I'll go back through and add screenshots for the entire walkthrough. Let me know what you think in the comments below if you're interested in commenting. I'm still getting adjusted to HTML, so I have a way to go with overall formatting.

Also, I'd like to apologize to all the readers that have emailed me or messaged me in anyway over the past year, since I haven't gotten back to many people. Many of the messages are too old to respond to by now, so I won't be replying to them. My email is a total clusterfuck of spam, newsletters and many other messages, so I don't spend much time with it as much as I used to.

If you're interested, here are other guides that I have worked on for Neoseeker since I have started:

DmC Devil May Cry Definitive Edition
Outlast (includes Whistleblower DLC)
Dead Rising 3
Batman: Arkham Origins
Far Cry 4 (incomplete guide)

Far Cry 4 is a guide that I started last year and got too bored with it to complete it. I've also got a guide set up on the site for Dying Light that I will try to come back to later this year after Revelations 2. I really want to work on Dying Light since it was a fantastic game! With the DmC guide, it's basically my guide from GameFAQs with updated collectible locations that were changed. I have only updated the changes for the Vergil's Downfall DLC. The main game has a few changes that I need to update but haven't gotten around to yet.

Poll Results - formatted FAQs vs text FAQs

Here are the final results for the poll that I put up (and nearly forgot about):

Should I try to write up formatted (HTML) FAQs on GameFAQs?

Yes, I prefer formatted FAQs compared to text FAQs.
10 (47%)

Yes, but do both text and formatted with all your guides.
3 (14%)

No, I only like text FAQs.
8 (38%)

That's good to see that more people favor HTML guides, since that is most likely what you'll be seeing from me from now on. I'll try to make a text version of many of the popular guides that I do, but HTML will always come first.

For those that don't know yet, since the time I made this poll, I've actually gotten a writing position at! I've basically finished a Batman: Arkham Origins guide for them and I'm working on Dead Rising 3 right now. I'll work on others for them in the future. I'll try to keep people informed on what I do for Neoseeker with some post about it as I work on them. I'll make up a post for the Dead Rising 3 guide in a few more days. It's still in the VERY early stages at the moment.

I have to admit, the Dead Rising 3 guide got in the way of the Arkham Origins guide and I couldn't finish up the Origins guide the way that I wanted to. I didn't get a chance to list out all the Enigma extortion files like I planned to - I'll try to get that done eventually. Dead Rising 3 takes priority though!

Formatted Guides vs Text Guides

I'm most likely going to try to write a formatted guide for my next project for GameFAQs. I'm very curious to see what people think about Formatted FAQs on GameFAQs. Here is an example of a formatted guide from a great FAQ author. I've been experimenting and I think I understand all the mark-ups for the proper formatting. It will all be new to me, but I think it will actually be easier. Since I can take pictures of games, I'll add pics to the formatted guides also.

I plan to write for Batman: Arkham Origins later this year and I want it to be my first formatted FAQ. I'm considering making up both a formatted version for GameFAQs and a text version for others sites. So that way, readers can have a choice. I think you'll like the formatted version once I'm through with it though!

I have a poll to the side about this. If you vote then be sure to comment and let me know what you think about formatted FAQs. I'd love to hear it!

Personally, I didn't like the look of the formatted FAQs from the start, but I'm starting to see the advantages that they have. They do have some disadvantages though - it just seems like you can have heavier formatting in a text FAQ. Those of you that read my work know that I go heavy on formatting at times. Haha. But I do see that formatted FAQs can be much cleaner and you can get to the point faster in them.
