2011 Jimmy Gems: and the winners are...

By: BatRastered Jan 5, 2012 | 4 Comments

Gouki.com gives you its favorite games of 2011, plus your votes.

Best PS3 Exclusive

inFAMOUS 2

BatRastered says: I played the first inFAMOUS because I got it for free on the PSN when they came back from the hacking debacle. It was probably the most fun I've had on the PS3 since I've owned one. Naturally when inFAMOUS 2 was released I had to play it. While it didn't leave the same impression on me that the original did, I still loved it. It's too bad the user generated content didn't live up to the hype.

GoukiJones says: I didn't play it. Well I actually I did, I beat the shit out of it at CES 2010. Exclusive! After that I wasn't really interested. I watched Batty play it a little and I still wasn't interested.

User's Choice: DC Universe Online

Most Disappointing

Brink

GoukiJones says: Wow! I couldn't have been more disappointed in myself after playing this game. I said it 2 years ago at E3 when I first played this game. "It felt stiff." Oh and it certainly was. 

BatRastered says: A game that goes from one of GoukiJones' most hyped games to us returning un-opened copies to Amazon in the space of a few hours has to be nominated. The movement was supposed to differentiate this game, I knew it was in trouble when the Crysis 2 came out and did the same thing (vaulting, etc).

User's Choice: Brink

Best Multiplayer

Battlefield 3

BatRastered says: The maps are huge, the shooting is spot on, and the environments are destructible. What a FPS multiplayer experience should be. I just wish they'd dumb down the helicopter flight controls so a Jimmy like me could fly them.

GoukiJones says: This is probably the best shooting experience I've ever played. The threat of realism in the game is amazing. Just last night I was standing on some stairs and a tank shot out the floor below me, the stairs and myself collapsed. Also the water tower fell on me last night. Vintage. Platoon up Jimmy!

User's Choice: Battlefield 3

Best Xbox 360 Exclusive

Gears of War 3

GoukiJones says: For the same reasons mentioned in the best multiplayer category, I love the Gears Campaign. Gears also has a fun story, great graphics and the shooting mechanics are spot on. But I didn't play the Multiplayer too much. Xbox needs more exclusive.

BatRastered says: This series is second only to Halo for the Xbox console. Read what I said in best multiplayer, it still holds here, plus a great campaign, great graphics and sound, not to mention a game that "just works" which unfortunately is actually a feature these days.

User's Choice: Gears of War 3

Best DLC

Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand expansion pack

BatRastered says: New maps, new game modes, new guns (and new ways to earn them) makes an already excellent MP shooter even better. Not to mention the fact that most of the issues present at launch are now history. Better yet, if you pre-ordered BF3, this expansion was free!

GoukiJones says: Harrier Jets! Are they Harriers? They float. The game modes are always welcome. Four new maps is great. Especially when I can remember these maps on old Battlefield games.

User's Choice: Battlefiled 3: Back to Karkand

Best Original Game

Anomaly Warzone Earth

GoukiJones says: I'm a big strategy gamer dude and when I heard the premise of Anomaly Warzone Earth, I knew I had to have a go. I played the shit out of this game for 3 days straight. Anomaly is a reverse tower defense game, so you control and upgrade the vehicles trying to get through the maze.

BatRastered says: Reverse tower defense... something new I guess. It looked cool from what I saw on GoukiJones' screen. Not my type of game, but original, yes.

User's Choice: Bastion

Best Game Not Released in 2011

Halo Wars

GoukiJones says: This year BatRastered got hooked on the Halo Wars. I have put over 500 hours in the game myself. Where the FUCK is Halo Wars 2?!

BatRastered says: Halo Wars has tons of staying power... mostly because there isn't a sequel and there's nothing else like it on the Xbox. The studio that made it has closed and several of the old employees created several new companies (none of which own the Halo IP of course) so we're probably screwed.

User's Choice: Halo Wars

Game of the Year

Batman: Arkham City

BatRastered says: Easily my most anticipated game of the year. Arkham Asylum was so good that its sequel couldn't possibly live up to the hype, and yet it did. I played through Arkham City twice (once on new game+) and enjoyed every minute of it. If anything, the combat was better than the original. The story was awesome and the voice acting top notch. This Batman had everything you could want in a single player experience. If they could only make it so you and your friends could go through as Batman, Robin, Catwoman, and Nightwing in a 4-player co-op, it'd probably be the best multiplayer too.

GoukiJones says: Played it on hard. Batman Arkham City was the best experience from start to finish for a complete game. It didn't break. There weren't any bugs. Batman AA also had spot on gameplay and controls. A great story. I only played through this once, but I know for sure it will be revisited in 2012. 

User's choice: Well, it's a 3-way tie right now, so why don't you go vote? In the meantime, you can see what FnJimmy has to say about Arkham City.

FnJimmy says: Watch my Golden Video Review...

2011 Jimmy Gems: Best DLC Nominees

By: BatRastered Dec 17, 2011 | 6 Comments

Some games get better with age, especially when new characters or maps are added. These are the nominees for best DLC in 2011

Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand expansion pack

BatRastered says: New maps, new game modes, new guns (and new ways to earn them) makes an already excellent MP shooter even better. Not to mention the fact that most of the issues present at launch are now history. Better yet, if you pre-ordered BF3, this expansion was free!

GoukiJones says: Harrier Jets! Are they Harriers? They float. The game modes are always welcome. Four new maps is great. Especially when I can remember these maps on old Battlefield games.

Portal 2: Peer Review DLC

BatRastered says: Another free DLC. We like free. This DLC adds the challenge leaderboards for the single player maps that were strangely missing from the initial release (strange because the original portal included them). The co-op mode was the surprise star of this game though, and the Peer Review DLC includes a bunch of new levels for the co-op mode... again, for free! Passing weighted storage cubes back and forth over a wall to your partner is great fun. Catching a thrown cube while you're flying through the air is always a delight. 

GoukiJones says: I love free DLC. I love Portal. After we figure out all of these new rooms though, we'll probably never play it again. 

Super Street Fighter IV: Arcade Edition (and v2012 patch)

BatRastered: The Arcade Edition expansion was not free, but it did include four new playable characters and a complete re-balancing of the game. If you're a Yun or Yang user, you were thrilled with this. If not, you were just happy you could upgrade via DLC instead of having to buy a whole new game again this year. Capcom gave the fans even more though as the AE 2012 patch was released last week for free, featuring a whole new re-balancing of every character for increased competitiveness. 

GoukiJones says: Personally I haven't had a go with this update yet. I have been thinking about bringing the Cammy out from the dungeon. Perhaps get into some Hakan again as well. He starts oiled up. Slippery!

What are the best games to play with friends? The nominees are...

Battlefield 3

BatRastered says: The maps are huge, the shooting is spot on, and the environments are destructible. What a FPS multiplayer experience should be. I just wish they'd dumb down the helicopter flight controls so a Jimmy like me could fly them.

GoukiJones says: This is probably the best shooting experience I've ever played. The threat of realism in the game is amazing. Just last night I was standing on some stairs and a tank shot out the floor below me, the stairs and myself collapsed. Also the water tower fell on me last night. Vintage. Platoon up Jimmy!

Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3

BatRastered says: I don't like this game, don't vote for it.

GoukiJones says: Just because BatRastered doesn't understand how to play it for whatever reason doesn't mean you should hate too. I've spent a ton of hours in Marvel 3 and Ultimate and I love it. Plus I destroy Jimmy every time. Great fun, passes the time away quickly. 

Gears of War 3

BatRastered says: An awesome co-op campaign experience, an improved horde mode that allows you to build defenses, and a new "beast mode" that allows you to play as the other side of the horde mode battle. There's also the standard death match and objective modes. FnJimmy sucks at all of the above. Proof:

GoukiJones says: Yes, this is exactly what it was like for three nights trying to beat the Gears of War 3 with FnJimmy. He had no clue how to perimeter check during the final boss and it took us 2 nights. But I loved every second of it. 

Portal 2

BatRastered says: The addition of a co-op campaign was a pleasant surprise for Portal 2. They even included a way to communicate your intentions with gestures if you didn't have a mic. Good times.

GoukiJones says: I barely remember this. BatRastered and I railed this in like 2 nights. Puzzle games are no good for me because once I solve the puzzle all challenges are gone. Now if this turned into some portal death match against Batty then I'm all for it.

2011 Jimmy Gems: Best PS3 Exclusive nominees

By: BatRastered Dec 13, 2011 | 6 Comments

The best of the best for the Playstation 3. And the nominees are...

inFAMOUS 2

BatRastered says: I played the first inFAMOUS because I got it for free on the PSN when they came back from the hacking debacle. It was probably the most fun I've had on the PS3 since I've owned one. Naturally when inFAMOUS 2 was released I had to play it. While it didn't leave the same impression on me that the original did, I still loved it. It's too bad the user generated content didn't live up to the hype.

GoukiJones says: I didn't play it. Well I actually I did, I beat the shit out of it at CES 2010. Exclusive! After that I wasn't really interested. I watched Batty play it a little and I still wasn't interested.

Uncharted 3

BatRastered says: I never played the first, but I loved the second game. Uncharted 3 is more of the same... much more of the same... and while that means more good stuff, it was hard for me to shake the feeling that I've played this before. Having said that, the cruise ship level stands as a shining example of both level and graphical design. Just for that it would be nominated, but it also has an interesting multiplayer... if you like third person jumping and climbing in your deathmatches.

GoukiJones says: I'm about halfway through playing that right now. Why does the blonde chick look completely different in this game? Way less attractive if you ask me. Other than that it seems like more walking and talking and less adventuring. It looks great and plays good, the multiplayer is cool, but I've only got a few hours in that. No friends. Sad face.

DC Universe Online

BatRastered says: Honestly this game probably wouldn't have got a shot if it wasn't now free to play.  That's because we gave a copy to FnJimmy to review. He never did anything with it  (he kept saying he was waiting for the "full on version") and when he brought the disk back so we could try it, we were disappointed to find out that you couldn't use a used disk and create a new account. Yup they straight up refused our $15 per month. Now that it's free to play we've given it a chance and it turns out it is pretty fun.

GoukiJones says: Free to play sign me up. Too bad this went free to play right before Ultimate, Skyrim, Battlefield were all released or about to be released and I just couldn't find time to play. Plus no friends on the DCUO. Sad face x2.
