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.

The most powerful Street Fighter characters made appearances throughout many games. Coming down to the Top 6 was down right close. But behold, the most prestige fighters in all of Street Fighter.
Ryu is perhaps the most famous character in the Street Fighter series. His humble beginnings to his uprising in ability to topple the giant champions of the world made him the fighter we all wished to be. The hero of Street Fighter and overall legend, he is known for usually snatching victory from the jaws of defeat.
Oro is a master of Senjutsu (Mystic Arts), a martial art practiced by the immortal mountain hermits of myths. He has full mastery of his chi giving him monstrous strength and stamina surpassing all other fighters in the world. He also has telekinesis, granting him the ability to pull in random objects for use for a limited timed. During the World Warrior 3 Tournament, during Second Impact, Oro defeated Ryu but then left in search for the young warrior, finding him to be a worthy successor of his fighting style and aided Ryu's training while remaining undetected.
Gill was the messiah of the mysterious cult-like organization, the Illuminati. When he was younger, the Illuminati genetically enhanced him, increasing his speed and power so that he could participate in an intense hand-to-hand fighting program, eventually even surpassing his jealous brother Urien. According to legend, the soul of the previous Illuminati Emperor would be reincarnated in a new body, thus the organization chose Gill at the age of 22 to lead them. He purposely resembles the look of a Greek god. In previous video game installments, Gill is much more powerful than every other character except Shin Akuma. He is fast, does heavy damage, does an extremely amount of stun and can string together very long combos. He also inflicts block damage with normal attacks which makes it very difficult to incorporate a good defense.
Gouken is Ryu's and Ken's master as well as Dan's former master and Akuma's older brother. Gouken succeeded in defeating his younger brother Akuma twice in the past before nearly dying the 3rd time and being defeated by Akuma's Shun Goku Satsu (Raging Demon) technique. Other than possibly Ryu, Gouken is the only known fighter to actually defeat Akuma who's is depicted as the world's strongest fighter due to his demon power, the Satsui No Hado, dubbing Gouken to be one of the world's most powerful fighters ever to have have walked the earth. His fighting style is more defense based so as not to kill his opponent.
Akuma and his brother Gouken were students of Goutetsu. Goutetsu taught a dangerous life-threatening martial art which incorporates elements of Karate, Judo and Kempo. He also taught the Shun Goku Satsu (literally Instant Hell Murder) a death technique which although incredibly powerful, puts the user in considerable danger. While Gouken took the path of righteousness and took this style and made it more defensive, Akuma took this style and made it more offensive based, surpassing his own limits and succumbing to the Satsui No Hado (Surge Of Killing Intent) He even killed his own master with this technique and sought forth to become stronger and stronger. Akuma has killed Bison and executed the Shun Goku Satsu successfully on him as well as Gen, and Gill as well as Gouken. Akuma has 2 even more powerful forms. The first is Shin Akuma, which is him unleashing the full force of his power. Far faster and far stronger, in this state he surpasses even Gouken himself. This in turn makes Akuma the most powerful fighter ever. However, then comes his second form...
Oni is Akuma in his most powerful form. Having surpassed his Shin Akuma form. Due to his immense godlike power, this being has transformed to a higher plane of existence and thus has dubbed himself Oni. This ascended being is now considered a different being from Akuma and thus in gameplay is a different selectable character than Akuma. In this form, Oni has discarded all humanity and has allowed himself to be completely consumed by the Satsui No Hado. In other canon, it is said that with the combined force of the Satsui No Hado and the most powerful lightning bolt that hit during a thunderstorm, Akuma was able to harness both powers in order to become Oni, thus granting his electrical power and gaining the godlike status of the sky due to his power descending from the heavens.

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. :)
