Gaming Startup Nabs Top Philippine Gaming Blogger

JC Cuneta

Congratulations to casual gaming startup EagleGame on hiring top Philippine gaming blogger JC Cuneta, previously of Lineage II Southeast Asia publisher AMDG. JC started work yesterday.

JC serves as Community Manager for EagleGame’s first release, online dancing game HighStreet 5. True to form, JC’s putting the game all over the Web — from Blogspot to Jaiku to Twitter to MyBlogLog to Ning to Flickr to YouTube.

Wonder how a top Philippine gaming blogger can be coaxed from something as epic as Lineage II to something as casual as HighStreet 5. EagleGame, a subsidiary of a Singaporean game developer Netelusion, must’ve made a pretty attractive offer.

Australian Gamers Want Lineage II SEA?

I’m giving away invitations to AsianMedia’s Lineage II Southeast Asia closed beta test, for gamers in Singapore, Malaysia, and the Philippines. That’s why Australian gamer Nathan Tills surprised me with this comment:

Hey guys I’ve been playing L2 since open beta NA. That was like 4 years ago now, or maybe 3, I can’t remember. I’ve played every MMO on the market and nothing comes close to L2! It still is number 1 and still has better graphics then some of the newer mmo’s! I’m from Australia and I know a lot of aussies are hoping we can come and play on these servers as we play the same times and NO LAG!!!!….. Please let Australians play on these servers. We are very friendly 🙂 CYA IN GAME!!!!!!!!!!!!1

Australia’s a large, affluent market. Any chance AsianMedia can serve them, too?
