Q: How do I write a story on Gouki.com?
A: Rule number 1: Don't be a Jimmy - Don't write a story with a title people won't understand. Don't write a story that starts with a bullet point and ends with a comma. When you write a story on Gouki.com it must be about video games. Otherwise BatRastered is going to be quick to delete it. Video game stories can be about anything though. Your story must be tagged with one of the following:
Blog. Fuck it. Blog it, write about whatever you want, however you want. As long as it's video game related.
Review. Write a review that follows our rating system. It's real easy. Reviews can be for hardware or software, new releases or old ass games, including demos and beta tests.
Preview. You can post a video with a short description of a game. You could also write a story about a recent press release. These stories work best with a source attached. Remember BatRastered is watching.
News. We most certainly encourage our readers to post the news, but what we want to hear are your versions of it, your opinions. So don't just post a press release cut and paste job. Explain why you are interested in this game and why you want to share your interests with the Goukimunity.
Pictures. Want to share pictures, the best way to do that is to use any of the image sharing sites. I prefer photobucket.
Video. You only need to cut and paste the "watch url" from youtube into the body of your story. Do not paste the url into the source. After you save your story the video will appear. [See image below if nubfarm.] If you want to post a video - write a short explanation why you are posting this video and what it is about.

Axton has quickly moved up my list of favorite characters in BL2, his turret action skill is quite good on its own, but with the right skills and weapons you can do the work of two players by yourself.
First the Survival Tree, I'm not a big fan of this.
You can see the relative offensive weakness of this build at about 4:45 in the video I throw a turret on each side of a basic loader, and I still have to kill it myself. I don't recommend the turret without the rocket pods. :) If you had 3 more points you could get the Scorched Earth rocket pods too. So with the 11 levels coming April 2, that's what I'd suggest first. If I did this over, I'd probably go with the rockets over the longbow just for the damage boost, but mag-lock without longbow is not very useful and Battlefront (extra damage when the turret is out for all your guns and grenades) is just so damn useful that I can't really recommend either version of this build unless you get the level cap DLC and get all 3 this build falls apart.
Now the Guerilla tree, the fun starts to pick up.
This is a good damage build with decent survivability. It allows the turret to slag, which is useful and will be even better in the upcoming third play through. The turret also has rocket pods and a shield. As far as Axton himself, he gets to carry 5 extra grenades and his shield will be recharging quickly most of the time. This is a good build that will only get better with the 11 new levels, allowing you to either add longbow and battlefront or get the twin Gemini turrets. Very versatile.
Finally we get to Gunpowder. NUKE!
This build is a great all around build as well, you still get the rocket pods from Guerilla and a good amount of defense, but you get a ton of DPS both from your nuke turret (basically an awesome, rechargeable grenade) and the use of the Battlefront skill. You'll note the Kerblaster assault rifle in the video shoots a projectile that explodes, drops a grenade and explodes again. This works with all the grenade damage boost skills too so this is my current favorite high DPS build. With 11 more skill points you can reach the slag turret too (double up, at the bottom of Guerilla tree) which will make this build very useful for the third play through. Also, nuking things is fun. :)

I recently purchased a limited edition EVO fightstick from MadCatz and decided to get it dual modded and blinged out with some LED buttons. Check out the results here!
Check out my new fightstick. I bought the limited EVO edition of the MadCatz PRO fightstick for the XBox 360. I'm a fan of the Pro model for it's shape and lack of screws on the top plate, but I didn't want a SFxT stick, so I jumped on that EVO stick when it went up for sale on line! Here it is before it was modded:
Not a bad looking stick, I dig the clear case and clean artwork. The PS3 version looks better though with its all white buttons on the face. I can't believe MS forces the rainbow colors on the manufacturers. I wanted my new fightstick to work with both the XBox and PS3, so I had the stick modded by local Vegas pro Vicko, check out his site at VickoMods.com. He also talked me into getting a fancy LED board. Well, at the very least I wanted to get rid of those rainbow buttons and have them all the same color, so might as well replace them with the clear buttons. But, yeah let's do the LED too! The stick works great on both systems now, no switches either, it auto-detects and just works!
