Wind-Up Monsters – Tier 1 Archetype?

Wind-Up monsters were used a lot in high level tournaments this year. However, are they a tier one archetype?

Yugioh Wind-Up ZenmainesRecently, I was looking at the finalists for the 2012 World Championships and a majority of those duelists used a particular archetype: Wind-Up. I had heard of Wind-Up monsters, notably the powerful Wind-Up Zenmaines, but had never seen them in action. After researching the archetype, I have come to realize that Wind-Up monsters are one-of-a-kind. They are not focused on a specific strategy; Wind-Up monsters utilize all-around tactics, from swarming to stat manipulation.

New Yugioh Video Game: World Championship 2011

A couple of weeks ago, Konami came with Over the Nexus, another installment to the renowned Yugioh World Championship video game series. Just like the two previous World Championship games, Stardust Accelerator and Reverse of Arcadia, Over the Nexus has a campaign mode following a certain storyline. Though I have not yet played the game, I have read about online and it is supposed to have (by far) the longest storyline compared to previous games and Over the Nexus apparently has some cards from the upcoming Extreme Victory pack as well!

Just like the last two World Championship games, Over the Nexus allows players to select and duel duelists from the series, friends, and people around the world not just in a regular format, but through turbo racing as well! I believe the game is also out for the Nintendo 3DS, which will make the dueling experience even more riveting! In terms of the storyline, the game follows a young duelists path form being a low-life in Crash Town, to becoming a big-shot duelist in the WGRP tournament. Along the way, the duelist encounters Team Satisfaction, saves Crash Town from being ruled by Lawton, and has to fight Team New World and ultimately ZONE to save the world. It’s a great story mode and the best part is that it is a very lengthy one!

It was recently my birthday and I got a $25 Best Buy gift card. After reading this, I guess you know how I am going to be using that card…
