Welcome!

Beware of stolen guides!
Please Support our game writers!

Be vigilant when buying game e-guides from eBay or any auction site. Most of the time, these are blatantly stolen works of hardworking authors that contribute their faqs/ guide for FREE to several gaming sites. I have a friend and fellow game writer that has her walkthrough stolen, plagiarized and sold in Ebay for $5.99. Please report any similar incidents to the authors and site admins. We writers dedicate countless hours of our lives, energy and resources just to deliver you quality content and help for the games you love. It is infuriating to have some opportunist take advantage of someone else's hard work and make profit out of it.


'Vhayste'is a Filipino video game walkthrough, faq and reviews contributor/ writer. Most of his contributions can be found in major gaming sites such as IGN, Chapter Cheats, Neoseeker, Gamefaqs, Cheathappens, and Supercheats to name a few. He started out gaming since the NES days, in the early 1990s. His walkthroughs are mostly for the PS2, PSP, NDS and Xbox 360. Since then, he actively contributed reviews, cheat codes and faqs to help other gamers and non-gamers alike. After his first work was posted, several other gaming sites has taken notice and later published his works on their sites as well. He also accommodates his readers' questions through email.

He is also featured as IGN's "Faq Writer of the Month" for March 2007, recognizing his hard work and the quality of the contributions he submitted. He received the same award last October 2009. He also works as the editor for the technical section of their local company magazine, and also a contributor for another online magazine. Also in the same month, Gamepro's Gamerhelp.com awarded him for the 'Highest Ranked Faq' for March for his comprehensive guide for the PS2 RPG, Rogue Galaxy. He also received the same award for the month of June 2007.

He has written PDF guides, as well as creating TXT format versions of those guides to be accessible to other readers as well. His PDF guides are user friendly, as well as being comprehensive and illustrated. So far, IGN.com, Cheathappens.com, ChapterCheats.com and Gamerhelp.com are the only gaming sites that hosts his PDF guides. All of his exclusive PDF guides are also located in IGN and Supercheats.

His game preferences include flight combat simulators, racing, strategy, RPG, FPS, 3PS, and action/adventure games. Some of his favorite games include the Ace Combat Series, Medal of Honor, Call of Duty, Gears of War, God of War, certain Tales titles, Shin Megami Tensei/ Persona titles, Star Ocean and Valkyrie Profile games. He describes himself as a mix of liking anime, mechs, cars, fighter planes and girls.


== Published Faqs and Walkthroughs ==

Vhayste has written both long, in depth, comprehensive faqs and short, specific guides for different games. He also started creating PDF guides for better viewing and readability. One gamesite even stated that it is 'like an official guide for free'.

Normally, only certain game sites allow PDF submissions. First is IGN.com, then Cheathappens.com, Gamerhelp.com and finally Chaptercheats.com. He is actually one of the few that uses PDF as the main medium of sharing user-created guides and distributed freely. Recently, he also started making game maps and gameplay videos. These are distributed individually or compiled alongside a guide. This year, a other popular gamesite, Supercheats.com have acquired his services to write unofficial guides for major game titles. These guides are embedded to the site and features screenshots and gameplay videos to further help readers.

== How can you help? ==

Writing walkthroughs is never been easy. Writers like me dedicate countless hours of our lives to play the games and write walkthroughs to help fellow gamers get the most out of their game; not to mention the shortened sleeping hours, frustrations, personal expenses and sometimes, sacrificing social times with friends and families. Our dedication and motivation comes from you, our readers. With the increasing costs in expenses, I will have to resort to request assistance from you, kind-hearted readers. You may support my work in many ways:


1. Paypal Donations
If you can spare me a dollar or two, that will go a long way in helping buy new games to write walkthroughs for. Or even use the funds to pay for my electric bills. You may send your Paypal donations to: vhayste@gmail.com

2. Visiting/Ordering via my Play-Asia affiliate link
Yes, just by ordering stuff from them, I get a small commission - no matter what item it is. They have a variety of items, games, game/anime soundtracks, toys/ anime figures, guides and collectibles. Just simply visit the site by using my affiliate link. Don't worry if you can't order; Play-Asia is generous enough to pay for the clicks/ visits to their site based on my affiliate link.

3. Downloading this text file from here or this link.
This is just another way for me to earn a bit of cash. Please don't mind the Linkbucks ad; the text file I'm asking you to download is a non-malicious, thank you message for your support. It only takes a few seconds of your time :)

4. "Like" my Facebook Page

This is where I put most of my updates since it is linked directly to my Twitter account. This is probably where I'll post often since I don't want people that subscribed for newsletters in my blog to be spammed by my random ramblings.

5. Showing your appreciation
This is probably the simplest, and cheapest thing to do. A simple "Thank you" email means a lot to me, since it tells me that there are people out there that appreciate my hard work. Though it won't help financially, it is still a big deal by giving me "moral support". :)
