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...

This is a game that was on a lot of radars, then it got some bad reviews. For those of you who are undecided read before buying.
I have been a fan of the series since way back on the original NES. When Team Ninja decided to bring the franchise back I had high hopes. They pulled Ryu Hayabusa straight from their Dead or Alive series and made him shine. They even threw in a few other characters to tie things together. You got a game that hardcore gamers had been hoping for. When they followed it up with a sequel they delivered again. But for part three they lost Tomonobu Itagaki and Tecmo Koei joined in making the game. Reviews go from praising the game to saying it was reduced to a Dynasty Warriors hack and slash game. I've had fun with the Dynasty Warriors games but I hoped that Ninja Gaiden 3 hadn't been changed that much.
When my copy showed up in the mail it was open before I made it back into the house. It went immediately into my PS3 (I can feel the dirty looks) and I had a few hours to play before I had to cook dinner. Opening the game with a quick time event did not fill me with confidence. When the game actually gets started the let you glide down to the stage (guess someone liked Rocksteady's Batman) and you fight your way through a group of soldiers. Pure numbers, but that's is the case with low levels on most games. Seconds later a big ass mech pops up and I have already been given like 4 trophies. The game is feeling watered down, but it's to soon to believe the bad reviews. You scale a wall, L1, R1, L1, R1, ..... yeah that's not going to get old. And another trophy. Yeah they are trying to make the jimmys feel like they really did something instead of letting us get that feeling from actually playing. I guess that is how they made it more mainstream friendly.
When a soldier decides they are in over their head they beg for mercy, don't worry you don't have to show any. I did start to feel guilty eventually though. But not all enemies go so easy.
The first save point comes in the form of a falcon that makes noise and has a golden glow. No more looking for those damn statues. But it takes making it to the guy in red from the special edition statue before you get to a real fight. The learning curve felt like a major spike. But compared to the hack and slash pace that is a great thing. And the game finally feel normal. You also finally see the curse from the Dragon Blade show up. Some red smoke and you move slow, not what I expected.
Once you hit day two in the story you finally see some enemies that can put up a fight. My hopes for the game picked back up, for a while. You still see piles of enemies, but nothing like Dynasty Warriors. And you do get some battles to show you Hayabusa is a badass. Sadly unlike the other games you learn no new attacks or ninpo the one you have looks pretty nice though.
There is also only the sword and the bow, unlike the option we had last time around. That felt like a major step back. I almost forgot to mention that you no longer have items to bring your health back, it just happens after you clear the combat area. More watering down.
The game is also fairly short. Two days and I was done. The story wasn't bad, but I was far from being blown away. There is a multiplayer option, but I decided not to use the online pass and sell my game to try and get back part of my money.
As much as I hate to say it I give the game just a rent it. If it wasn't Ninja Gainden I'ld probably say flush it.

I could have swore they said 3 was the end....
So the story is that in Gears of War: Judgment the survivors of Team Kilo (Baird, Cole, Garron, and Sofia) are being tried for treason. WTF? Apparently saving the world was a bad decision. They stole and didn't follow orders and their choice could kill millions.
Before you lose you shit (for the wrong reason) this is a prequel. Now you can be pissed if you are anything like me. They could add to the story, but in most cases prequels just wreck the story.
They also say there will be two new characters introduced.
So here is that big surprise I was hoping for. I'll try it just because I enjoyed the series. Hell I won #3 from here on Gouki.com http://gouki.com/Story/Details/my-take-on-gears-of-war-3
So what do you think? Are you hype? Pissed? Do you give a crap at all? Lets hear it.

A very weird cartoon will probably mean a very weird game.
The game Ugly Americans: Apocalysegeddon is based on a TV show on Comedy Central. If you never watched it I can explain real quick. The main character is a social worker for monsters. He helps them adapt and find a place in the world. They go though some really weird shit. His roomate and friend is a sex obsesed zombie. His co-worker is a drunk wizard. His girlfriend is a sucubus. And his boss is a demon trying to bring the world to it's end. There is also a human cop who is always trying to arrest or kill his monster clients. So yeah it's pretty strange. I'm not sure how they are planning to turn it into a game though. On gamasutra they say it will be a four player side scrolling shooter that you can download for $10. There are supposed to be more details given at E3.
