I talked yesterday about some of my misgivings…. of which there were many, so the game started off on negative footing before I even entered.

First and foremost I feel like I should start this video off with the latest news surrounding Bless as it is the most hyped MMORPG release at this point. Next up we have Soul Worker’s latest update – bringing with it Jin Seipatsu – another male character that the game desperately needed utilizing my favorite fighting style in action games: Fisting. Blade and Soul is going down a new route with their new Eternal Night update coming May 9.
