Goukijones, Batrasterd, and I take on Pete the Invincible using a glitch to our advantage.
On Wednesday, January 16, Goukijones, Batrasterd, and I went and took on the raid boss of Mr. Tourge's Campaign of Carnage, Pete the Invincible. During the course of this particular fight, though, we ended up getting Pete into a spot where he essentially got stuck, allowing us to defeat him without much issue.Read full story...
Yep, that's Right. read this for info for the upcoming DLC for Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.
Okay, So I recently found out that Scott Pilgrim vs. The Wold will be coming out sometime next month. the DLC involve around two bonus mini-games, and a new playable character.
Okay, Bonus Mini-Game #1: Dodgeball
In this mode, There will be a large Volleyball on the field. The obejet of this game is to knock everyone out with the ball, and no, i don't mean one hit and they're out.
Next, Bonus Mini-Game #2: Battle Royale
You can treat this mode similar to a wrestling match. the object of this game is to win by either 1 of 2 methods: either knock you opponent out, or your opponent says out of the center ring for more that ten counts. of course, it wouldn't really be a battle royale without there being weapons outside the ring.
Finally, New Playable Character: Knives Chau
And yes, the one character that was one of the support characters you can use during the game (in fact, she's your first support character in the first place), actually becomes a playable character. Seeing as who she won't have herself as a support character, the developers decided that her support character would be none other than her very own mother.
As for the Price of the DLC, they say it'll be $1.99 on the PSN store, and 160 MSP in the Marketplace.

My[Arthvader] preview for The King of Fighters XIII. An in-depth look at the most important reasons why Arthvader is hype for KOF13.
With The King of Fighters XIII coming this November, I'm soo hyped up for this game. I've been a fan of the series since 94, and from the looks of it, I'm sure it'll be one of the best one yet. Here's the trailer:
The story takes place after the event's of KoF XI. Ash Crimson has just recently managed to claim two of the three power held by the decedents of those who sealed the Orochi 1,800 years ago (Chizuru Kagura and Iori Yagami), while leaving Kyo Kusanagai to be his final victim. As Elisabeth Blanctorche, a former comrade of Ash, prepares to stop him, fighters from around the world received a letter with an invitation to another King of Fighters tournament tournament, in which it's be hosted by a person being simply labeled as "R". This person is Rose, the sponsor of the tournament, who is currently being controlled by "Those from the Past", the organization behind the two previously held tournaments that has been trying to break the seal of the Orochi.
Let's talk modes first. The game will have the following modes: Story, Practice, Challenge, Customize, Tutorial, Replay, Gallery, and Online.
In the Story mode, you can view events from the perspective of multiple characters, and it will be influenced by the decisions you make, as well as your battle results. when it comes to battling the CPU in the story mode, you'll be given random objectives, or Target Actions, which when completed, will give you bonus points, as well as some bonuses for the next round. Also, pre-battle dialog will be shown during the single player mode.
With the Tutorial mode, newcomers will be able to learn the basics of the game. the tournament sponsor Rose will explain the basic controls of each character, as well as the importance of each gauge.
The Challenge mode will consist of three modes within itself: Survival, where you fight for as long as you can, Time Attack, Where you pretty much just play through the game for the fastest time, and Trial, which you perform various combos with each character.
The Replay mode is where you can view replays of matches you saved after battles. I don't know yet if you can watch replays with friends yet.
The Gallery is, well, it's self explanatory. in this mode, you can view various pieces of art done by the staff.
Another neat feature for this game is the fact that you can customize the character's colors to whatever you want. Sure, at first, there won't be as many colors available at first, but as you keep playing the game, more colors will be available, allowing for unlimited customizations. the best part is, you can use those customizations in online play.
The next thing I'll mention is gameplay changes. First of all, the following gameplay mechanics from the previous game were removed for this game: the Critical Counter system, the the Clash system, and the dynamic, zooming camera. In the place of these mechanics, the following systems and changes has been added:
- The EX Mode: Players will be able to use powerful version if their moves for the cost of one meter for EX Desperation Moves, and two meters for EX Super Desperation Moves.
- The Triple Cancel: this mechanic allows players to unlimitedly cancel their character's moves. the Triple Cancel is dependent on the Hyper Drive Gauge.
- The Hyper Drive Gauge: A three-tier gauge which will gradually drain as player cancel the moves. Whenever the the gauge reaches the max, the player will then go into a state called "Hyper Drive Mode" in which players will be able to cancel unlimitedly for a short amount of time.
- Neo Max Desperation Move: whenever the player is in the "Hyper Drive Mode" while having at least three power stocks, they'll be able to pull off this powerful technique. Players can also link this move into a combo, in which you'll do a "Max Cancel".
All I have to say is this, the songs in this game are soo totally badass. Instead of having generic songs for the stages, we get back songs for each team. Not only that, each team's theme, in my opinion, sounds like it belongs with them. Listen to Team Japan's theme here, and see for yourself:
As you can see from the image above, you can tell that the game improves on the graphics. The game will feature a total of at least 8 new hand-drawn stages, while returning stages from the previous game will get a visual upgrade. each characters themselves will have at least 20 different colors to choose from, all of which looks really nice, while some characters might have head swaps (Raiden & Takuma, I'm looking at you), and if the twenty colors aren't enough, you can use your own customized colors (I explained customization mode in the gameplay section of the preview.)
Final Verdict: HYPED!!!
Even though the game won't be out just yet, I'd say BUY IT!!!!!
Also, pre-order this game to get a special 4-disk set consisting of KoF music spanning the whole franchise.
Before I go, here's some videoes of high level KoF XIII players (I found these on iplaywinner's youtube page):

Special Package from Gouki.com. What could be inside...?
First of all, I have to say thank you, goukijones, for sending me this sweet package from PAX 2012. This package arrived about a week ago.
When I opened the package, at first, What I saw was a Magic the Gathering bag. when I open the bag to start taking the stuff out, I saw yet another bag (same one, mind you), and was able to get the swag out of that bag. First of all, I definitely like the borderlands 2 shirt. now i have 3 different types of them (Crimson Raider, Skag crossing, and this new one). I also like the Injustice headband, which goes well with the Injustice T-Shirt that I got from the E3 swag bag. The Batman Arkham City concept art book was a nice adition to my collection (liked the game, of course). One of the more interesting things I saw within the package were some Magic the Gathering items, such as a coloring book w/ crayons for it, as well as a 30-card Red Planeswalker deck (I was kinda hoping for the blue deck, but after looking at the cards in the red deck, and learned how to play it, I was satisfied with the Red Deck). I've also noticed that I got some things that i already got from the E3 swag (mainly, the Ninteno Power issue). Among the rest of the swag (Halo Patch, Skullgirls Tattoo, PAX '12 Guide, Lanyards), laid a hidden game within the package. That game was Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen for the Xbox 360. I was surprised when I saw this game. I remembered playing the demo to it and had alot of fun in the multiplayer, destroying the opposition with Iron Hide in the train yard map. I was still surprised to see that there are some people who to this day, still play the multiplayer in it. I can expect to see this as a game I would go play around from time to time, destroying everyone for the fun of it. I will also at some point start playing the single player campaign, just so i could get more characters for multiplayer.
Once again, thank you, Gouki.com, for sending me this sweet package.

I'm back with more matches from Third Strike. Today's Character Feature: Chun-Li.
Welcome once again to another installment of Arthvader Fights. As you may all know, this is where I put up some of my more recent ranked matches that I have fought on. This time around, I've decided to go ahead and use Chun-Li again. Just like Remy, I've been using Chun-Li for a long time now. In fact, I've been using her since back in the SFII days, and I'm still rocking with her. I do hope you enjoy watching these matches as I had in fighting in them.
