Modders on Halo Reach. I have not seen anything like this since Halo 2. The Jimmy is jumping super high and killing us with 1 shot, using the AR. Running super fast and jumping the length of the map. Edited for time.
Last week Bungie banned like 15,000 Jimmys. Hackers, boosters, modders, alleged cheaters. Whatever, Bungie is on top of the situation. I was just having a conversation with BatRastered this afternoon, that Bungie was doing an excellent job Banning the cheaters. The Banhammer has come down twice since launch and soon will become self aware, like Skynet.
"With each Banhammer swing the mass proclamations of profound innocence become more and more entertaining, and with each subsequent smack down the Banhammer becomes more and more addicted to the delectable taste of booster blood. Soon we will unleash it in its fully automated, self-aware form. You have been warned. " from Bungie.net
The video below shows some Jimmys that haven't been effected by the BanHammer yet. That shouldn't take long though, you'll understand after you see the video. All the guns on the map were one shot kills. For red and blue teams. One guy on the red team had a super high jump and could run really fast. I haven't seen stuff like this since Halo 2. So what's going on here? Something in Reach is like Halo 2 and the hacker and modders can mess with the settings like that. My take is Halo Reach looks like Halo 3 and shoots like Halo CE. I never had a comparison for Halo 2 really. I guess it mods like Halo 2. Yeah that's a good one. Watch the video below. It's edited for time and you can see the entire game if you download it from my file share on Halo Reach.

Bungie.net: Forum post
This shouldn't be taken as a fanboy rant or a blame it all on Bungie type thing. I know, no matter what Bungie does, there are always gonna be some Jimmys ruining the game for us. Halo is my favorite shooter and I know that people want to see videos like this. For me, it was like seeing a UFO tonight. I had no idea this could even happen anymore on Halo, or even Xbox 360 at all. Thanks for reading.

Killzone 3 changes the industry. Here's a look at a few high profile gun peripherals for the Sony Playstation Move. The official Sony Sharpshooter and the CTA Assault rifle. Play an FPS like never before.
There's a few excellent options if you want to use your Playstation 3 Move controller and play an FPS like you have never played before. Killzone 3 has gun peripherals galore. We got to try one out recently at CES and FnJimmy really liked it. From what I observed, I like what I saw and would definitely give it a try. Sony has a quality product here with the Move FPS.
The peripheral we got hands-on with at CES was the official Sony PlayStation Move SharpShooter.
This gun requires both Move controllers for it work. You can see in the picture that the PlayStation Move Navigation Controller is in the front. There are different options with the guns below. The PlayStation Move Controller fits in the front and is right down the line of site. This is also different in the guns below. This is the Sony branded gun, so maybe Sony knows something about the line of site that they are not sharing. I always recommend the official product. PlayStation Move Sharp Shooter on Amazon for $39
The CTADigital models give you two more options on how you want to play the game.
First we have the Assault Rifle Controller for PlayStation Move. This is unique because the Move Navigation is already built in, so you don't need that part of the Move to play. But this controller also retails for $20 more. So you save $10. The thumbstick is also in the back of this gun. Can you walk and shoot at the same time? Here's a quick demo video from CTA.
The second model from CTADigital is a submachine gun.
This gun as you can see, requires both Move controllers for it work. The PlayStation Move Submachine Gun retails for around $20, but now you need a PlayStation Move Navigation Controller too, if you don't have one, that's an extra $30.
Personal play style is going be a huge factor. Each of these guns are different sizes and different weights. There are a few Jimmy Ass models online, like the PS3 Move Battle Rifle, which transforms into a pistol. But the individual has options; where do you want the thumbstick, how do you feel about the line of site for the Move, the price, the size, the style. Make your choice carefully.
I'm excited to see what happens in the future with peripherals. These are all pretty cool and seem very tangible. However, I still don't know how an FPS is going to work without buttons. Sony Move definitely has the advatange over Microsoft Kinect in the FPS market. Thanks for reading.

So for the thanksgiving I visited with family and friends. I also brought along Gran Turismo 5 and Need for Speed Hot Pursuit. Of course my friend grabbed the Gran Turismo 5 first, but what happened next is unbelievable.
I guess you can say this was an intended experiment to see what my friend thought of these two brand new racing games. Gran Turismo 5 was still in the shrink wrap when I brought it over. I had already played the crap out of Need for Speed Hot Pursuit and it's no secret that I love it. They writin' stories about my record times on the internet.
My friend immediately grabbed for the Gran Turismo 5, unwrapped it and put it in his Playstation 3. Of course we had to do a system update and an install. It's the Playstation what did you expect I told him. Reports on the internet was that there is a 45+ minute install time for GT5. Luckily we were distracted by family, football, alcohol and turkey. After the install I grabbed the remote and started to look through the menus. I just wanted a quick race so I can see it. I've been waiting for such a long time for this game and the internet has been an unstoppable buzz machine about everything GT5. Well I couldn't just race, I had to do a license test first. First license braking challenge. Ok seems simple enough. The countdown begins and then I'm off down the straight away. There is a giant checkered board at the end of the track, I guess gotta stop there. No problem. Perfect. Wait what? Failed? Aw fuck. I was called for the official turkey dinner start and left the game running right where I failed to brake. I was in shock that I failed the braking test.
After the meal I headed back into the game room and found my friend all up in the Gran Turismo 5. He was still trying to get a license so we could get into a real race. After each attempt at a challenge he handed me the remote and asked if I'd like to play. I respectfully declined. Watching was more than enough for me. 30 minutes later we had a license and entered a race. I still haven't seen anything really special, the game appears to be extremely in-depth and that kind of interests me. I watched my friend do one race and then it was my turn. After playing so much Need for Speed Hot Pursuit there was nothing special about driving a shit car in GT5 at 55 MPH. I was extremely bored with that type of racing. I imagine it would get better with more gameplay and more cars unlocked, but we didn't have time for that and I really wanted him to see the other game I brought at this point.
Finally we put in the Need for Speed Hot Pursuit into his Xbox 360. Within 3 minutes he was already racing. Then as the map began to open up and he unlocked more cop and racer events, it was clear to me we had a winner. He dropped subtle hints to his wife that he needed this game asap or a divorce was imminent. The funny thing about all of this to me is that my friend never asked me once if I wanted to play the Need for Speed, like he did in-between every GT5 load screen.
Gran Turismo 5 is a simulation. A serious simulation of a race car driver who must buy his own car collection, earn his own licenses and level up like an RPG. Need for Speed Hot Pursuit is a straight up arcade racer that puts you into high speed racing action right away. I don't have an official opinion on Gran Turismo 5, but I'm sure I'll play it eventually ... if I can ever get off of Need for Speed and trying to beat all of my friends times on the speed wall. Thanks for reading.

Buy Darksiders from Best Buy and receive a free action figure. My Darksiders action figure came in the mail today and you're not going to believe these pictures.
Dear Best Buy and THQ,
You should be ashamed of yourselves. First of all there was never any clear information about the Darksiders Action figure bonus when the game first came out. There was no information, if you had to fill out an online form to get the action figure and when you called or spoke to a Best Buy employee they didn't have a clue. Finally after digging through all types of forums, I came to the conclusion that the figure would just be mailed to me in a couple of weeks. This is what came in the mail today, this is exactly how I took it from the mail person this morning.
This is what came in the mail today.
As you can see this is exactly how it was mailed. No extra box for protection or anything. I'm a collector this is the reason I did buy the game at Best Buy.
There's a hole in the side of the box.
In this picture you can clearly see the plastic strap that is wrapped around the box completely destroying it.
The bottom of the picture here just shows how smashed up this box actually is . This is just completely unacceptable. I've been a gamer for a very long time and I have never been this disappointed with a bonus item for a game. (Including the Batman Arkham Asylum Collector's Edition) I'm also a collector and this is not fair.
It really seems that nobody ever gave a shit about this bonus item. Best Buy never had any answers about it in the first place and now it comes on the mail utterly destroyed. If you read this story and you are pissed off about this as well, message me I smell a class action lawsuit here. lol.
*Darksiders is a great game. Read my review?

Brink is a highly anticipated shooter. Made by some crazy English chaps that love to do what they do. Brink is going to set a new standard for shooters when it's released sometime this year. Also Exclusive DLC information, where you purchase matters.
It's been 6 Months since the last developer diary from Splash Damage. Don't worry about that. It's time to get a lesson on Sonic Space. Something that the developers are taking very serious over at Splash Damage. This type of attention to detail and dedication really gets me hype to see what comes next with Brink.
BRINK DEVELOPER DIARY #5 - CHRIS SWEETMAN was just released today. Chris Sweetman is the Audio Diretor at Splash Damage. Chris also did sound design on the BLACK video game. In his latest blog he talks about Sonic Space and what it means for Brink.
"We wanted every sound in Brink to be heard perfectly, whether it was a Molotov cocktail exploding, a mini gun winding up, or a heavy body-type player coming round the corner to stomp on your face." Chris says in the blog.
All of the audio was originally recorded for the game and there has been extensive work in creating the perfect sound effects for Brink. So when you are doing Parkour and jump on to some shanty roof top, it's gonna sound like a shanty roof top.
The Choir of Guns idea is great. Whether you are Resistence or Security in the game you will have different sounding weapons. The Security will have the cleaner, more well maintained sounding guns. The Resistence will have the beat up/been in a fight version of guns. Look closely when you watch the video, almost every gun looks and sounds different. A little bit of that Borderlands style right there.
Halo always stands out for me when I think about the sound of gun fire. I don't know too much about what gun fire sounds like in real life, so I can't discuss that. I do know when I shoot off a sniper rifle on Hemorrhage, it echoes off the canyon walls and then fades away. In Brink, Chris explains that the sound is totally natural in the game. There's no BS background weird war noises going on. If you hear gun fire, you should be able to tell how far away it is and perhaps who is shooting at who.
"Then on top of that, we gave each weapon three distinct stages of distance:
A close-up third person sound - what you would hear if another player was right next to you.
A mid-range sample - which would be played about 15 to 20 ft away from the firing player.
A far sample - which would be played above and beyond 20 ft from the firing player."
If that's still not enough, Splash Damage took it one step further programing begginng, middle and end firing sounds for each weapon. What this means is a more true to life sound, not just a looped audio track that goes off depending on how you push the trigger.
"We came up with a granular system that breaks up our recorded weapon burst of roughly 15 rounds into three main groups: Start, Middles, and Ends.
The Start is the initial attack; it’s the first shot fired and this sample always stays the same.
The Middles are the tiny sections of each shot firing, broken up into pieces.
The Ends are the tails of the final shot in a burst; like the Starts, these samples always stay the same."
If you want to read the entire blog, well then you got to go to the Official Brink Website. I enjoyed it thoroughly.
When you watch the video, watch with your ears. Look at the guns and the characters, there are tons of character skins and weapon mods running around. I'm very exciting about this.

Nothing a little determination won't over come. After trying multiple programs and testing out tons of configurations. GoukiJones finally achieved greatness, by killing the skeleton king with an Xbox 360 Controller. Here's how:
Everybody has seen the story about the Xpadder. That Jimmy has posted that same story all over the internet. Well the Xpadder is $10. I'm cheap. Plus I just paid full price for Diablo 3 that has been in development for years and should have come with a simple feature, such as controller support. Never mind all that, Xpadder is $10 and I wasn't having that. I did find a free version of Xpadder, but it wouldn't even install and giving me pc safety warnings. I searched the internets and came across a few different FREE options. Free options are always scary, but I was willing to risk it.
First up - Pinnacle Game Profiler
Let me be clear. I have know idea what I'm doing with computers and random software. I installed this and set up the best I could. When I tried Diablo, it was a cluster bomb. Some of the commands worked, but I still couldn't get certain buttons to do what I wanted. And the analog sticks were all over the place.
There is no simple set up for anything like this in the Diablo 3 game itself. In fact you can change all of the key and mouse commands in the Diablo 3 menu, but you CAN NOT change the two main actions, which are left click and right click. That totally screws with these controller set ups.
Second program - Joystick 2 Mouse
This has a slight learning curve, but I watched some Jimmy on YouTube and figured out from there. This program has a lot of trial and error on just trying to figure out what button is what on the controller, according this program. Again, not impossible, just time consuming.
This is a great program. Remember, I'm running both these at the same time. For some reason if I turn off the Pinnacle Game Profiler, I can't even use the controller in Diablo 3. I have all my favorite buttons mapped to the controller in conventional methods, like select will bring up the map, start will pause the game. A is left click and B is right. Sweet stuff. I played and I made a video so you can see.
You need to download this special profile for Diablo 3 for Pinnacle Game Profiler. Found on THIS THREAD on the Pinnacle Game Profiler Forums.
You can download both programs from different sites like, tucows and stuff. Google it Jimmy! Let me know if any of you try this out. Let me know what's up on the Diablo 3. Vote, Comment and Share. Thanks!

Yakuza 4 just got way more interesting. This story was originally for a new video from Sega about the Hostess Clubs in the game. It's turned into a monster about these beautiful Japanese girls, who are the stars of Yakuza 4 Hostess Clubs.
I saw this video this morning on YouTube and of course Japanese girls catch my attention in real life and virtually. So I have to check it out. First of all, the Yakuza game series is one I have yet to experience. I don't know why, maybe just never had the right feeling for it. The new version is looking more and more interesting to me. And not just because I can now go hang out in a Authentic -albeit virtual- Japanese Hostess Club. Yakuza 4 is seriously trying to be a Japanese style GTA.
This first video is from the American Sega YouTube channel.

Haven't you heard ... it's the Halo RPG you've been waiting for.
Well not exactly an RPG, but you get EXP which is now called Credits (cR for short? Reh-tard for long.) Anyway you get credits now for multiplayer and playing the campaign. Is the campaign going to be that different each time you play through? I can't imagine going through any campaign more than three times, unless you are the Original Jimmy.
News also came out today about the armor customization. When I first saw the trailer for the Halo Reach multiplayer I was guessing that different combinations of armor would give you different abilities that would act like "equipment" from Halo 3. I am incorrect. The armor customization doesn't do anything in Halo Reach except change your appearance. This is for all the Jimmys that needed the Recon armor bullshit. I don't care what the armor looks like, I use an Elite in Halo 3. Jimmy!
Bungie says this is a way for everyone to play a lot or a little and get the same experience. So next time you look at a players Spartan you will be able to tell his play style. I can't wait to see what the Raipist looks like.
