Do you like DoA? Have a PS3? Is it hooked to a 3D tv? If so I have some good news for you.
It's been a while since the last Dead or Alive Beach Volleyball gave you jimmys carpal tunnel, but this summer you'll get another chance.
Team Ninja has decided it was time to get the hype machine going for what might be this summers hottest biggest release. They have teamed up with Sony to put this on the PS3 and make the most of the 3D possibility. They already put out a DoA game on the 3DS so you can just consider that a beta test.
As you play you can again build relationships with your favorite players by giving them gifts and hanging out.
And with a little research I was able to find a Japanese sight that had a screen shot of the Collector's Edition bonus. At around $100 you can have your very own set of figures from the game. As well as a code for an unreleased DLC pack.
They have promised to have the most complete 3D experience you've had in a game yet. So real in fact that they have a new control for you to get your hands on.
So what do you think jimmy? Are you hyped? Will you drop the extra cash for the collectors edition? Are you pissed that it's April Fools Day and I made it up?
I'm guessing you feel kind of like that.

After a while being away from Gouki.com I have returned to find a challenge, I must somehow choose a team from a roster of the stars of Street Fighter and Tekken. Wish me luck.
The death of my pc has kept me from being able to post on here since November, but with a Laptop ready to go I return to the site to do some catching up, and what do I find? Gouki.com has another kickass giveaway going on. And this time it was for Street Fighter X Tekken. All it takes is write a story about the team you want to play as, easy right. Wrong. As I look over the roster I realize that a team of two characters just isn't big enough.
The truth is from the Tekken side I have a few favorites, Jin and Kazuya are at the top of the list but you can't overlook Yoshimitsu or King.
If they had the right Jin He'ld be on the team for sure.
I just couldn't decide. So I decided to check out the Street Fighter side. And it just made things worse. Ibuki felt like a sure thing, at first.
But as I looked at the list there were just to many great characters to choose from. Akuma (Gouki) is always high on the list
And you just can't over look Cammy...
This just keeps getting more complicated. I'm sure all use them all in various combinations until I find the right mix, but I still have to start somewhere. So I just keep watching videos and reminiscing about all the fun I've had with them in the past. And then it hit me. What better team could I start with? How was it not obvious from the start?
Poison and Juri! Juri is one of the craziest female characters to ever put the digital beatdown on anyone. And Poison can throw down with the best of them with the added bonus of distracting your opponent as the wonder if she's packing heat. The quest was over! For now at least. Until I have a chance to try the characters out and really get into the mechanics of the game (including how much I suck with various characters) I can't be sure what my final team will be, but I do have a place to start.
Best of luck to all of you who enter. And remember don't be a Jimmy!
And just for the Jimmys...
It's nice to know I'm not the only one who wants Darkstalkers 4.
I remember the first time I saw the Darkstalkers select screen as a pre-teen boy.
I had to try it. A fighting game with monsters and it played like Street Fighter. My quarters were gone and I couldn't wait to play again.
So of course I had to have it when it hit the Playstaion. Demitri Maximoff, Jon Talbain, Victor von Gerdenheim, Lord Raptor, Morrigan Aensland, Anakaris, Felicia, Oboro Bishamon, Rikuo and Sasquatch were now at the house.
And the countless blisters that followed were no suprise.
And then the Saturn got round two, but this time I had a pair of joysticks and finally had the arcade feel at home. And the roster grew, we got Donovan Baine and Hsien-Ko plus this time around Huitzil and Pyron were playable.
Enter four more new characters. Jedah, Lilith, Q-Bee and B. B. Hood were brought in now we had 18 playable characters.
Then with the exception of of PSP port we had nothing for the main series. The Vs Capcom games kept hope alive that we would see a new game but it never hapened. And now rumors start about a possible follow up. But "I would like to make," and "we are making," aren't the same.
I'ld love to see a new game and with fighters making a comeback I don't think it's out of the question, but Capcom needs to see the support from the fans. But instead of whining and pleading lets give it some real thought.
What would you like to see in number 4? Some new charactes? Great idea, what kind? On-line play? To keep up with all the rest of the competion they almost have to. Anything else? Let's hear it.
Don't be a Jimmy! You want it? Hate the idea? Speak your mind (even if you're wrong) what are you waiting for?

There are so many great series that are worth replaying or trying out if you've somehow missed them, Breath of Fire has a spot on that list.
If you were a fan of the series you'll be hyped to see it showing up on PSN August 16th. If not read on and you might decide to give it a try.
Your main character it Ryu, a badass who can transform into dragons. He is out to stop this immortal evil emperor from destroying the world.
Like any good jrpg you will collect a team that brings their own flavor to the fight. And these characters are more than just canon fodder. You also get a great soundtrack that is more than just background music. The score is epic and helps you get into the story as it builds. The graphics are pretty dated so maybe if we are lucky they'll clean them up a bit. But this game is a must buy and hopefully they will put a fair price on it.
I hate that the computer I'm using now has so many issues because I really want to get more into the story, but it's crashed on me twice already.
So if you are a fan of rpgs and have that chance buy it Jimmy!
