Have you ever wanted to battle it out as some of the biggest names in the Square Enix roster?
Final Fantasy has been an icon for many gamers world wide, we have put countless hours into the games, and we still come back for more. Dissidia 012 is a prequel to the previous PSP game, and it will let you fight as your favorite characters.
Need I say more?
Ok how about this.
and I guess this wouldn't hurt..
The game will be here March 22, so what do you need to know?
The roster? Ok. The Original cast, Warrior of Light (Final Fantasy), Firion (FF2), Onion Knight (FF3), Cecil Harvey (FF4), Bartz Klauser (FF5), Terra Branford (FF6), Cloud Strife (FF7), Squall Leonhart (FF8), Zidane Tribal (FF9), Tidus (FF10), Shantotto (FF11), Cosmos (Dissidia), Garland (Final Fantasy), The Emporer (FF2), Cloud of Darkness (FF3), Golbez (FF4), Exdeath (FF5), Kefka Palazzo (FF6), Sephiroth (FF7), Ultimecia (FF8), Kuja (FF9), Jecht (FF10), Gabranth (FF12), Chaos (Final Fantasy). Pretty good right?
But then you add a few new ones, Kain Highwind (FF4), Gilgamesh (FF5), Tifa Lockhart (FF7), Laguna Loire (FF8), Yuna (FF10), Prishe (FF11), Vaan (FF12), Lighning (FF13) and how about add Aerith as a support character if you play the demo.
You get a Fighter an a Single Player Story mode, so it's got plenty to offer.
I wish it was on the PS3, but the PSP will do just fine.
Will you be picking it up? Who will you play as first? Don't be a Jimmy.

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...
Everyone with a smart phone, tablet, of kinect has played Angry Birds at least once, now you can do it as your favorite Star Wars characters.
The app actually came out yesterday, but I forgot. So this morning when I saw it I rushed to download it before I started my day. Normally I play with the sound off but I had to hear the sound affects. And they are good enough I will leave them on as I play later.
You get a few short little Star Wars vidoes then you are off on your first adventure to Tatooine, as Luke.
Then comes a real Jedi Obi Wan using a little force push.
Play a little and you get your first bonus mission, as R2D2 using his little shock and C3PO blowing apart.
And the last level I played before shutting it off has you facing Stormtrooper pigs, one even fires a blaster.
There is a lot more to do and my inner geek is screaming to play more, but unfortunately I have stuff to do.
There is an ad free version that only costs .99 on Amazon or a free version. I played 6 levels and a bonus mission and have only seen 2 ads so far. So what are you waiting for?

I won the game back in June from here and have played enough for my review.
I've got to start by saying thanks again to Gouki.com for making me Jimmy of the Month back in June and hooking me up with another great game. This time around was even better. Not only did I get the copy of Final Fantasy Tactics A2 Grimoire of the Rift for this review, but I also have a copy of Dead or Alive 5 coming.
This review has taken me forever for a few reasons. The first is that I'm not that big of a fan of the Nintendo DS, so it's my son's system I played it on. If it was on a real system this would have been done a long time ago.
If you have ever played any of the Final Fantasy Tactics games you know that they are incredible. You can spend countless hours building a clan and doing all kinds of side quests. You have a few characters that have to join your team and and endless supply of others that you can recruit if you want.
The story is that you are a kid who ends up sucked into Ivalice through a magic book. Sounds pretty familiar. He crash lands in the middle of a battle so you are forced to join the clan to survive. You have to battle your way around to fill the magic book (grimoire) to find your way back home. You encounter some odd characters as you play and there is a ton of time put on they main story. And even after you finish it you can keep going. You actually have to if you want to collect all the unique characters, such as Vann and Penelo. And in the above picture you see the Seeq from Final Fantasy 12 I think and they are playable for the first time. The Gria are entirely new.
And if you have never played any of the Tactics games I should tell you it's a turn based RPG and you move across grids, think checkers. The stages you play in aren't exactly ground breaking but the are rendered pretty nicely. The music is also pretty standard and repetitive. There is no voice acting so be ready for a lot of reading, or skipping text if that's your thing. I've put in over 40 hours at this point and am still running around doing side quests so I'm not let down at all by the game.
And my son loved the bonus.
