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...

Well my prize made it today and I just wanted to say thanks.
Well the week is over time to get on PSN.... nope. What else can I do? Hmm a package for me. Who the hell is Erik Schmidt? wait Las Vegas. Hell Yeah it's here. BlazBlue Calamity Trigger Limited Edition, thanks Gouki.com .
Of course I have to start with Story mode, and it starts with a video. Some scientists talking, experiment going wrong, then something badass in space shoots a blazer. So far story looks good. I go for Taokaka first and lots more story. She is amusing in a clueless way. Her story is centered on saving her village of cat people. But as far as her fighting style I'm not to impressed. I end up being shot home in a cannon. But story mode gives you choices and different endings so I'll try her again later.
Who should I play as next? There is a guy named Bang, decision made. To start he is trying to help out some villagers as the place burns. After a lot of story I get to the first fight, not to impressed here either. Even without knowing much about the game these fights are pretty easy. And I get my first distortion Finish against Jin. And I finish his story running away.
I guess I'll try Ragna since everyone is looking for him. His story starts with fire then he loses his arm. So far I've been more into the stories than the fighting. And he meets a vampire girl, I know who I want to play as next. His fighting style seems a lot more fun. There is still hope for this to be a good game. 1 out of 3 with 12 total characters, chances are good I'll like a few more. I meet Hakumen again, and hope that I can play as him. And I take my first loss. Take a second shot at it and I get by. And then he dine and dashes? yeah looks like I'll need to do some time in story mode to see what else is going on. I think it's great to get into a fighter with story, but time to try Arcade mode now.
Hakumen is selectable here, so that's where I'll start. And just a few matches in I get my first perfect. I do fine all the way to the 9th fight with V-13 then I get my ass handed to me. Second time around i scrape by with a win though. Then Ragna goes down easy enough and I get a little story at the end. Not bad. Another character that's worth playing, but I can tell I need to hit training to really get the most out of the game.
The artwork is well done for the characters and stages, the voice acting is a little cheesy, and the music was pretty good. Overall it seems like the game is worth putting some time into. And I suspect I'll pick up the other BlazBlue once I finish this. I don't think it's as fun as Guilty Gear, but it's still a good game. Thanks again Gouki.com

Adding some new faces helps but half the roster?
Just one of the new faces you'll be seeing this time around. Patroclus is the son of Sophitia. His sister Pyrrha will also be in the game. The roster will be 20 - 30 characters, plus there will be a create a charachter option of some sort.
I made mention of a lot of new faces before but here they have confirmed half of the roster will be new. How do the fans of the series feel about that? And with 10 - 15 returning characters who do you want to see? Any characters you hope are getting cut? Plus we have had some talk about bonus characters, who are you hoping for? I'll try the game no matter what because of the history I have with it, but I might not be pre-ordering this. There is still a ways to go before we see the real game and the version they let people play at E3 was barely built. And with all these new characters being brought in what can we expect? If you aren't a fan of the series what would it take for you to give the game a chance?
E3 is so close and with all the hype going in where would you start?
I know that there are games like Twisted Metal, the Dragon Ball Z project, Ninja Gaiden 3, the Darkness 2, Elder Scrolls V Skyrim, Dead Island, Battlfeild 3, Need for Speed the Run, Soul Calibur 5, and Hitman Absolution, my first choice is X-Men Destiny. And fair warning everytime I think I'm done another games pops in my head.
I'm a die hard X-men fan so Destiny is a game I want deatils on the most.
I'ld follow it up with Ninja Gaiden 3 since it will no doubt be bad ass.
I wish that Dead or Alive 5 was going to show up, but doubt it very much. So the number three spot would go to Soul Calibur 5.
After that it starts getting harder to put them in order. Twisted Metal has me really hyped, but so does Skyrim. How do you compare car combat to a massive RPG? Street Fighter vs Tekken has to be pretty high on list also, so it would work it's way in. And the Need for Speed game could be a lot of fun or total crap, so it's a gamble. the Darkness 2 probably won't be worth waiting in line to play but it would be worth a look for a fan of the comics. Hitman isn't going to be that different than the other ones, just shinier and with some new places to hunt your targets. Dead Island looks like it will take more than a quick hands on session to really get into it. The Dragon Ball Z game is going to get swamped by fanboys so it would be a must see, but since the wait might take awhile I'ld try to get to some of the other games first. And I'm curious about Skull Girls, but waiting to see more won't kill me. I almost forgot about the new Tranformers game, but that is due to low expectaions and high hope. And that leaves Battlefeild 3. This game already looks so good I'm dying to play it. So it is a must play.
And if there was time I'ld look for the Bleach, Dynasty Warriors Gundam, and Disgaea booths if they are there. But since they are already out in Japan they might not even make a showing. And Cars 2 would make my personal list because my son is dying to play it, but I have it pre-ordered from Amazon with release day delivery so it will be here just before his and my birthdays.
Are there games that I forgot? Maybe a few that you just would love to see, but have no hope for (Darkstalkers 4)? I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of you put up your wishlists so I can see some more great choices. Don't be a jimmy.
