What is Kabalyero.Net?
Hi there, my name is Kabalyero and welcome to my newest blog, Kabalyero.Net. This blog is about my adventures and experiences in the various virtual worlds and online games that I currently play and I will be posting pictures, stories and pictures about them here. If you like to follow my adventures then please don’t hesitate to subscribe to my RSS feed.
What kind of Computer do I use in playing all these different games?
Currently, my computer is powered by an AMD Phenom II X6 processor with 4GB of RAM. My current video card is an ATI Radeon HD 5700 which is still good for most games. I know it’s not the best video card for gaming but it’s the only thing I can afford right now. In fact, I was able to purchase my current computer by selling my original Kabalyero blog, Kabalyero.com.
Relying on revenues from Google Adsense and other methods of monetization wasn’t enough to raise the funds needed to purchase a new computer. So please, don’t hate Kabalyero.Net if you see advertisements from Google Adsense and others. I don’t make a lot of money from these advertisements but they do help a little in keeping this blog up and running.
Who is Kabalyero?
My real name is Romelo Itong and I’ve been using the handle or nick, Kabalyero, in online games since 2000. Kabalyero came from the spanish word “caballero” and one of its definition is “knight”. I chose this name as my permanent online gaming name because it perfectly describes the type of character I like to play in any online game or MMO and that is the Knight/Warrior character class.
As a gamer, I am passed the addiction stage. I am now more of a casual gamer than a hardcore gamer. Before, I would spend like 16 hours a day playing Khan Online or Ragnarok Online but not anymore. Today, I think I spend more time blogging about games and MMOs than actually playing them. LOL!
What online games or MMOs do I play today?
Currently, all of the games or MMOs I play are Free-To-Play and most of them are not local. The ones I have installed right now on my computer are:
- Champions Online
- Guild Wars
- Second Life
- Blacklight: Retribution
- Star Trek Online
- Entropia Universe
- Age of Conan: Unchained
