Id Software has brought us a decent horror FPS, but the timing could have been better.
If you are a fan of horror based first person shooters Rage is a game you should check out, when you get the time. FPS games have flooded the market all year long but right now we have Battlefield 3 and Call of Duty Modern Warfare 4 right around the corner it's hard to justify buying another shooter at the moment. And if you look at the pile of recent releases there is a good chance you have picked up a few other fps recently. I personally could wait until Borderlands 2 comes out to buy another shooter.
The driving bits are kind of fun and if you are on the four wheeler you can get launched off by running into something, that was great for a laugh. But you do have some races you must do to get through the story and some give you weapons. This is also available for some multiplayer action online.
I only played for a few hours but the weapons didn't seem to have much variety (Borderlands has spoiled me) you start with a pistol, later you pick up a shotgun, a sniper rifle, an assault rifle you can buy, and this wicked crossbow. You can upgrade the weapons a little, but from the looks of it they are just minor tweaks. With the pistol you also get a couple choices of ammo, so later in the game you could get more choices.
Overall the game was pretty fun, the story feel a little generic, you are a survivor that was lost in time who wakes up to a world in turmoil. It's not bad, just not original. But in most cases if you are playing a fps it's because you want to shoot shit and there is plenty of that. You do get some boss fights mixed in to give you some variety.
So my official verdict is Rent It, but if they could have slipped it into a gap between games it could have got a buy it.

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...

I was ready to pass on the next DLC until I saw the Zombie level..
Let's get right to what you want to see.
I could have done with out the extra DLC for Call of Duty: Black Ops, then I saw what they had planned for the zombie mode. To be able to play as Robert Englund had me sold, but then you add Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Danny Trejo. It'll be out for Xbox 360 May 3, and PS3 will see it about a month later, and again it'll be $15. So now if you have both DLC packs you're looking at around $100 put into this game. Hopefully we'll have PSN back by then.
I know most of you are done with Call of Duty, but does this make you want to play it any? Let's Hear what you think.
Here are the Achievements
So far these look like better new levels than what we got for first strike. But 360 users are playing it now and for us waiting for the PS3 release and for PSN even.
But I think the rest of you are waiting for the good stuff.
Call of the Dead
Robert Englund had me sold.
And if you want more shots http://www.joystiq.com/screenshots/call-of-duty-black-ops-call-of-the-dead/4089550/#/8
- Stand-in (35 Points, Everyone): In Call of the Dead, send the crew to Paradise in solo or co-op.
- Ensemble Cast (45 Points, Everyone): In Call of the Dead, send the crew to Paradise in co-op.
- Stuntman (20 Points, User of the Weapon): In Call of the Dead, make a zombie explode using the V-R11.
- Shooting on Location (20 Points, User of the Weapon): In Call of the Dead, kill 10 zombies with one Scavenger shot from over 100 feet away.
- Quiet on the Set (30 Points, Everyone): In Call of the Dead, cut the lights on the Director.
Skullgirls has been generating a ton of hype in the fighting community, are you ready for some more?
Today Playstation Blog has brought us Ms Fortune, the newest Skullgirl to be revealed.
Her story involves a heist gone wrong that ends with her being chopped into bits. But a special artifact let her live through it so now she can use her detachable body parts for weapons. And she is looking like the first character that I want to play as. Although the "mummy/nurse girl they have shown in some fan art could give her some competition.
The all female roster will start with 8 characters. 5 have official reveals and another shows up on the blog a lot. But in the source story they also confirm future DLC and that there will be a male presence. With Konami on board this is looking like a must download gave if I've ever seen one. Still no release date yet though, so we will have to wait for the chance to get it on PSN and Xbox Marketplace. But they are still putting major work into the game to be sure it lives up to the dreams that were brought together to make the game.
So who is hype for the game? Anyone try it yet? I've watched streams and videos as they pop up and so far I'm impressed. Be sure to check out some of the other great stories here on gouki.com including an exclusive interview.
