The Suikoden franchise, for me, is one of the best RPG franchises of all time. Suikoden 2 will always be the best for me but other Suikoden titles are also worth looking into.

Today, I am going to talk about Suikoden 4. This game has a lot of sea battles and it has its own unique mechanics as well.

The story starts with an unnamed hero and his friend, Snowe. After their training, they were knighted by their commanders, Glen and Katarina.

After the knighting ceremony, the hero was then assigned his first sea mission. During the course of their expedition, they came across some pirates headed by the pirate, Brandeau.

Snowe cowardly escapes the ship after Brandeau’s pirates fired some Rune cannons. But, the hero was brave and never abandoned ship.

Brandeau hopped aboard and confronted the hero and challenged him to a duel. The hero wins and in a last-ditch effort, Brandeau used the power of the Rune of Punishment to destroy the hero’s ship. Unbeknownst to anyone in the scene, the hero was shielded by an unknown force.

Glen arrives at the scene and then, Brandeau’s Rune of Punishment was passed on to Glen. Shortly thereafter, the group went back to Razril.

After some sea skirmishes, Glen and his team were severely outnumbered. He wants to use the Rune of Punishment to turn the tide of battle but upon doing so, his body slowly evaporates.

The Rune of Punishment then finally transfers to the hero. But upon Glen’s gradual evaporation, Snowe was able to arrive at the scene and he blames the hero for Glen’s death.

Katarina, who then assumed Glen’s position, cast out the Hero because she believed in what Snowe has said.

Adrift in the sea, the Hero was eventually found by a ship from the Kingdom of Obel. Upon inspecting the hero, they’ve found the Rune of Punishment and they immediately brought him to the king of Obel known as Lino En Kuldes.

The King then implored the aid of Hero as he puts him in charge to bolster the kingdom’s defenses because of a threat by the Kooluk empire.

Apparently, Graham Cray was the leader of the Kooluk Empire who wants every island nation for himself.

The story then revolves around the hero recruiting more and more people to aid him in his fight to liberate the island nations from the Kooluk empire.

The Suikoden 4, just like any Suikoden game, has its 108 Stars of Destiny. Should you recruit all of them, you will unlock the best ending of the game.

The Suikoden 4 is the only game in the Suikoden franchise where most interaction happens by sea (or on the island nations).

The Hero wields one of the 27 True Runes, the Rune of Punishment. It is the same as the Soul Eater rune in that it also takes the life force of the bearer every time they use this rune.

There are some differences in Suikoden 4 from other Suikoden games. In Suikoden 4, you will only have 4 characters in your party at a time. The game also has a rune combination feature that combines 2 or more party members to do a runic combo attack.

The naval strategy mini-game mostly stems from side quests but there are certain portions of the game where naval battles are a part of the main quest.

In all of the Suikoden games, Suikoden 4 didn’t quite live up to the Suikoden name. This is not to undermine the game, no; what I am saying is that it didn’t have the allure much like Suikoden 2 had.

Still, the Suikoden 4 game for the Playstation 2 game console is still worth playing.

Protein is considered to be the building blocks of muscles. Without them, there is no room for optimal muscle development.

If you’re lifting weights, the main macronutrient you should be adding to your diet is Protein.

Now, protein can be acquired from a variety of different sources. You can eat meats, fish, and other foods that contain the said macronutrient.

But, we live in a fast-paced world where even the preparation and cooking of meals is a luxury.

There are many different ways you can get protein and that is from protein supplements. But, even though they have protein content, it is not a good substitute from a real meal; you still need to eat food.

In this article, I will talk about the different types of protein and why you should care.

  1. Whey Protein. This type of protein is prevalent in protein supplements. Why is that so? That is because Whey Protein has a profound effect on a weight-lifters performance in the long term. Whey Protein helps improve your weight-lifting efforts by reducing the production of the stress hormone, cortisol. This also means that your body will repair itself at a much-improved rate as opposed to those people who do not take Whey Protein. Whey Protein is also rapidly absorbed by the body which is why a lot of bodybuilders love Whey Protein for its effectiveness and fast-absorption.
  2. Egg Protein. Egg is a cheap source of protein. I am not talking about it in a derogatory sense; I am talking about it in the sense of affordability. Egg Protein, unlike Whey Protein, is a much-slower releasing protein. Eggs are best consumed after working out as the slow-releasing protein present in the eggs can help with muscle development.
  3. Soy Protein. Soy protein is another popular source of protein. You can get this by drinking those soy milk drinks found on the supermarket. Soy protein is released at a much-faster rate than the Egg protein but it is a little bit slower than the Whey Protein. This can be safely consumed before and after working out. Furthermore, drinking Soy Milk actually has a lot more benefits than providing protein to your body. It can also help prevent a lot of diseases such as prostate cancer, breast cancer, just to name a few.
  4. Casein Protein. Casein protein is also predominantly found in protein supplements. This type of protein can be used in conjunction with egg protein because Casein has been known to be slow-releasing as well. Casein protein drinks are usually consumed just before hitting the sack to improve your muscle growth while you sleep.

Now that you know of the different proteins out there, why should you care? Well, if you’re a bodybuilder, protein is your best friend as it is the single macronutrient that will help you build those big muscles.

By knowing which protein to consume for best results, you will now have the edge over the competition.

This is just a suggestion but drink Whey protein supplements immediately after working out and then consume eggs afterwards. Just before bedtime, drink Casein protein drinks to ensure that the slow-releasing protein will help you with your muscle development.

When you want to lose weight, you wish that you will eat foods that not only contains a few calories but also delicious.

Sometimes, people are led to believe that the only way to truly lose weight is to eat dull and boring foods. In other words, you are only limited to eating foods that do not have so much flavor.

But, that is just a misconception and you should stop thinking about that. That is just a myth and you should start creating meals that are not only delicious but also healthy as well.

In this article, I want to share with you a recipe that I’ve found that is quick and easy to do. But before anything else, let me talk a little bit about the dish.

Today, we are going to cook the Turkey and Balsamic Onion Quesadillas. Turkey is one of America’s favorite meats because of its nutritional value. Plus, it is widely used especially during Thanksgiving.

This dish only contains 315 calories per serving and this recipe makes 4 of them. You can even store the other 3 for later consumption if you wish.

Now, without further ado, here are the ingredients that you will need in order to cook this Turkey and Balsamic Onion Quesadillas dish:

  • 1 thinly sliced Small Red Onion
  • 1/4 Cup Balsamic Vinegar
  • (4) 10-inch whole wheat Tortillas
  • 1 Cup of Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • 8 Slices of Deli Turkey (smoked)


  1. Get a bowl and combine both the onion and the vinegar. Let the onions marinate for a good 5 minutes.
  2. Drain the vinegar from the onion but make sure to save the vinegar as it can be used in the future.
  3. Get a large non-stick pan or skillet and cook the tortillas over medium-high heat for 45 seconds per side.
  4. After cooking the tortillas, sprinkle the cheese on one side of the tortilla. You can occupy 1/4 of the entire Tortilla with cheese if you want.
  5. After sprinkling the tortilla with cheese, put the Turkey slices on top of the cheese.
  6. Lastly, put the balsamic onions on top of the turkey slices.
  7. Roll the tortilla up and gently flatten it with a spatula.
  8. Cook it in the non-stick skillet for about 2 minutes each side or until the cheese begins to melt.
  9. Slice the tortilla up in two and serve!

The recipe is amazingly good! It contains only 315 calories and it also contains a little bit of fat and carbs for your macronutrient requirement for the day.

Furthermore, this dish can be prepared and cooked in more or less 15 minutes, so there is no excuse when making this amazing recipe.

This dish can be eaten as a snack or a main meal as the Turkey and Balsamic Onion Quesadillas contains all of the nutrition you need in one sitting.

Now, why would you want to make this dish when you’re trying to lose weight? The answer is simple: this dish can fill you up for hours and this dish is absolutely delicious.

Have you heard of Solid Snake? If you do, you’re probably familiar with Metal Gear. Metal Gear is a solid gaming franchise that was created by Hideo Kojima. There are a lot of version of the Metal Gear games but the first ones were released in Nintendo consoles.

Today, we are going to talk about the Metal Gear Ghost Babel Game for the Nintendo Gameboy Color. This is the second game of the franchise and it takes on the story of Solid Snake as he investigates the matter behind the new Metal Gear.

You see, seven years prior to the game’s incident, Solid Snake was responsible for destroying the original Metal Gear. This time around, he was contacted again by the US operatives to retrieve the stolen Metal Gear prototype.

This Metal Gear prototype was taken by the Gindra Liberation Front, an armed group that is bent on taking over America with the help of the Metal Gear.

Snake employs his partner, Chris Jenner, and both of them will traverse through different maps in order to retrieve the stolen gear.

The gameplay of the Metal Gear Ghost Babel Game for the Nintendo Gameboy Color is similar to the original game in that it follows the 2D overhead format. The only exception is that you can now move in 8 directions as opposed to the original game’s up, left, right, and down movement limitations.

Solid Snake will be your main character but Chris and other US operatives will be helping you with the use of the “Codec”, or simply just their unique communications system.

There are various difficulty settings for the game and depending on which one you will choose, there are going to be some difference. The obvious one would be that it would take more punches just to knock out an enemy. Furthermore, your rank will solely depend on the difficulty you’ve chosen. The higher the difficulty and the better the performance, the higher the rank. If you’ve got a higher rank, that means that you get a high score.

Aside from the usual Story mode, the Metal Gear Ghost Babel Game for the Nintendo Gameboy Color also has different game modes as well. These game modes are:

  1. VR Training- It is what the title says. This is a virtual training simulation that has 180 missions in total and 3 different categories (Weapon, Advanced, and Sneaking) for you to choose from.
  2. Vs. Battle- This allows you to play against another player via a Game Link Cable (they also have to have the same game). The objective is to beat the other player by destroying drones called “WISPS”. By destroying the drones, you will get a disc. Collect three discs and you will be the winner.
  3. Stage Select- This is basically a game mode where players can return to their previously completed missions in the hopes of getting a higher rank.

The Metal Gear Ghost Babel Game for the Nintendo Gameboy Color is a challenging game that incorporates many infiltrating styles. If you are a person who wants to do some espionage, this Nintendo game is for you.

Monster Hunter is an amazing gaming franchise that has spawned a lot of versions. If you’re into exploration and collecting material from different monsters, then this game is highly recommended.

In this article, we will cover the Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Game for the Nintendo 3DS. This is the first full-fledged Monster Hunter game for a portable gaming console that has the capability of connecting to the internet for online play.

The majority of the time in this game will be spent on killing various monsters. You see, in the Monster Hunter universe, whenever you kill a monster (a boss or a normal enemy), they will drop various materials that you can use to craft different armors and weapons.

These crafted weapons and armors are far more superior than what you can buy on the NPC.

The story of the game revolves around the player character. He (or she depending on your gender preference) meets up with a “Caravaneer”. This Caravaneer is actually from a prominent merchant city. He is also accompanied by a very good blacksmith called “The Man” and a guild stewardess.

Basically, your character will be employed to venture into a city to find some answers about the growing number of Elder Dragon sightings. During the course of the game, your character, along with the Caravaneer and other Hunter’s guild members, uncover the secret as to why the Elder Dragons come to be in the current timeline.

It has been found that a “Frenzy Virus” is roaming throughout the world. It inflicts monsters and it is also responsible for reviving the Elder Dragons (which was supposed to creatures of old, and thus, extinct).

Your mission is to defeat the Kushala Daora, the sacred Elder Dragon. He is the one who brought the Frenzy Virus to the world and by defeating him for good, you will also save the world by killing the vector of the virus.

The Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Game for the Nintendo 3DS is a diverse game in that there are a plethora of different monsters you can defeat. As previously mentioned, when you defeat a monster, they will leave behind materials you can use to craft different equipment.

During the course of your voyage, you will come across rare monsters that drop highly valuable materials. When you hunt them a couple of times and craft equipment based on their drops, you will have an enormously powerful character.

Consider it bragging rights as well. You see, some rare monsters are just that, rare. And you will have to hunt them down to get all of the necessary materials you need to craft some sets.

But, once you do complete a particular set, you will be happy that you did. If you go online, a lot of people will admire your dedication and they will respect you for it.

Again, this game is the first iteration of Monster Hunter that allows you to connect to the internet. I highly suggest that you play online as it will truly be one of the best gaming experience you will ever have.

The Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate Game for the Nintendo 3DS is a highly satisfying game for RPG game aficionados.
