Yugioh Decade Duels could possibly the worst Yugioh video game ever created. Yugioh World Championships 2011 is a very good game though and I greatly recommend it.
Episode 154 of Yugioh 5Ds marked the last 5Ds episode and it was possibly one of the best episodes of the series. In episode 154, also known as Shining Forth to the Future, the main characters all part ways and it shows how they are all doing in the future. It emphasizes friendship and bondage so it was a very sentimental yet feel-good episode. Now that Yugioh 5Ds is over, Konami is making a new series, Yugio Zexal. The first episode was released a few days ago and to tell you the truth, it didn’t look very good.
Yugioh Zexal revolves around a boy named Yuma who unlocks some sort of spirit from his dream world that helps him duel, similar to Yubel who later acts as an aid to Jaden. The show also introduces a new type of monsters known as exceed monsters; all of them are pretty easy to summon and some of them have stellar effects. Despite this introduction, Zexal looks pretty boring and the storyline is kind of repeating that of Yugioh and Yugioh 5Ds, where the duelists duel with some sort of spirit.
Though I criticized Yugioh 5Ds, which I enjoyed later or, when it was released, Yugioh Zexal just looks stupid. The characters look very hollow and there doesn’t seem to be an intense rivalry. Yes, there is a boy named Shark that Yuma forms a rivalry with but it just doesn’t seem nearly as intense as the rivalry between Yugi-Kaiba, Jaden-Zane, or Yusei-Jack.
The new Yugioh booster pack, Storm of Ragnarok, was released four days ago. The Storm of Ragnarok features cards in the distorted timeline arc such as Stardust Shimmer, Zero Force, and the cover card of the pack; Odin, Father of the Aesir. The fierce ruler of Asgard has the ability to revive itself by removing a ‘Nordic Ascendant’ monster from play when destroyed. For the turn that it’s special summoned, Odin is unaffected by spell trap cards. Along with Odin, the other two (powerful) Nordic legends, Loki and Thor, are available in the pack as well!
The Storm of Ragnarok looks like an awesome booster pack, not only because of the release of the Nordic Gods, but of the loads of support it brings for new archetypes as well. The Legendary Samurai archetype gets a lot of support, as a semi-archetype known as the Legendary Six Samurai debut in this booster pack. Blackwings also get some good support and there as a powerful new addition to the Elemental Hero archetype as well (Elemental Hero Ice Edge)! Storm of Ragnarok will also be featured in the upcoming Yugioh video game, World Championships 2011: Over the Nexus.
I was reading the spoilers of the upcoming Yugioh 5Ds episodes, and when I reached Yugioh 5Ds episode 149: The Revived Hero, I was shocked at what I read. That spoiler says that ZONE tells Yusei, “I am Yusei Fudo.” What? This somewhat surprises me, somewhat doesn’t because in Yugioh 5Ds episode 144 when Aporia recounts his days in the destroyed world, he is encountered by someone who (coincidentally) looks exactly like Yusei. That turns out to be ZONE. What do you guys take out of this, is ZONE really Yusei, or is this all part of ZONE’s plan to destroy Yusei and restart the world? Or, if ZONE really is the future-version of Yusei, what spurned him to become mechanical and plan the destruction of the world?
In my last post, I talked about the strongest monster from the first set of Yugioh monster types. Part two will include the monsters from the second set of Yugioh monster types. If there is any disagreement my choice or choices, feel free to comment on what you would have picked differently and why it is better than my choice. (Note: The decisions were made based solely on stats, effect, and how much it would help in its type deck.)
Though I have written about Yugioh monster types in the past, I wanted to write a post about the strongest from each of the monster types. I think that though we all talk about the strongest monsters in Yugioh, overall, I thought writing about the strongest monster per type is important because it can be a pathway for people to build their decks out of. I want to thank nader for giving me the idea. (Note: The decisions were made based on stats, effect, and how much it would help in its type deck). Let me know if you agree or disagree with my decisions.
When I wrote this post last year, Yubel the Ultimate Nightmare was in my opinion, the strongest monster in Yugioh. I still think Yubel the Ultimate Nightmare is the strongest monster in Yugioh in terms of effect and efficiency, however, it isn’t the strongest in terms of stats. 0 attack and defense points? Those are the weakest stats a monster can have. So what monster is the best in terms of high attack, high defense, and has an adequate effect? What is the strongest Yugioh monster card? In some recent comments I have gotten, Armityle, the Chaos Phantom and Dragon Master Knight are supposedly the strongest Yugioh monster cards (with the criteria above). However, I don’t agree.
This post features a card contest, and it also talks about the upcoming events of the third arc on Yugioh 5Ds. The third arc seems very cool; Yussei will be dueling a bandit turbo duelist in order to get back duel runner parts the bandit took from others. The third arc will also be the introduction to the Turbo Duel Grand Prix.
One of the biggest asked questions in Yugioh5Ds: Who is the fifth Signer?” and I think it is soooo Crow! He has beast Winged Beast monsters!
