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: Official game stats
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.
** I used the Hauppauge 1212 HD-PVR to capture the video.

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 are 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.

It's been 12 years since Gouki.com first stumbled drunkingly onto the internet. Check out our stats from the last year to the most recent 30 days. And thank you for visiting Gouki.com.
First off, Gouki.com would like to thank all of the users that have been visiting the site for the past 12 years. We would also like to welcome and thank all of the new users that have joined us since our massive relaunch in 2009. Yes, that even includes Kof2012.
Since Gouki.com was a birthday gift to me so many years ago from my excellent friend and co-founder of the new Gouki.com, BatRastered, The 27th of January will always be the anniversary. Over the years the site has been many things. At one point I wrote and uploaded all of the code myself, I didn't have a clue what I was doing. The site showed it too. lol. I tried to cover, movies, tv, video games, comics, local Las Vegas hot spots. None of that worked, I could never keep every section looking mint. At that time, I also had the wise idea to advertise on television. Boy did I have internet marketing all bass ackwards.
A few years later, I moved away from Las Vegas in search of my lost soul and the site drifted into oblivion. Not the game, the void of the internet. Then Xbox Live and Halo 2 came out and changed my world forever, yeah one of those moments. Online FPS with friends from all around the world? Sounds awesome right. The term Jimmy also came from this. Based on one of my best friends Jimmy Roman, you all know him as the incredible FnJimmy. When I played Halo 2, I was killing people that sucked or was being partied up with nuabs, I just started calling everybody Jimmy. It didn't matter, I might as well been playing with Jimmy at that point. Just nameless random pick-up Jimmys.
Then everybody I was playing with started to call me Jimmy and everybody else Jimmy. It quickly became a worldwide phenomenon. I know you saw that Scottish Jimmy running around in the oil commercials screaming "Think with your dipstick Jimmy!" Yeah, they had to ask for the rights to call those Jimmys a Jimmy.
Ok enough nonsense. Here's a look at our growth over the last month.
30,000 Visits. Thank you very much! That's up over 55% since December.

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.

Gouki.com got to play Marvel VS Capcom 3 all day. Check out our thoughts and these exclusive gameplay videos.
After playing Marverl VS Capcom 3 all day long yesterday. I sit here today only wanting to play more. MvC3 is one of the most spectacular looking video games I've seen in years. The colors and effects on screen are simply amazing. Capcom, Marvel have out done themselves. Marvel VS Capcom 3 is the sequel fans have wanted for over 10 years.
The character selection is great, there's a ton of classic characters you can use like Magneto and Captain America. The new characters are strange, but I'm really glad that both companies did some reaching. For example The Dog and the Bionic Commando Jimmy from Capcom and M.O.D.O.K. and TaskMaster from the depths of Marvels character catalog. Really cool stuff.
DLC characters in the future also have tons of potential, unless Shuma and Jill are the disc. If they are on the disc we could be screwed, but if not well then that opens the door for more characters to be downloadable content. There was rumor of M. Bison being in the game, but that could have been Photoshoped right? MvC2 had over 50 characters, I expect this roster to grow too.
Something I didn't like for instance were the stages, there's only like 6-7 stages to do battle on. You can't do versus on Galactus' stage, which doesn't make sense to me. No spectator mode is a really bad idea. I think that not haveing a spectator mode turns the game into more of a party game with friends in house, other than playing online. I'm not gonna sit on a blank screen while I wait for others to fight. Why does Capcom go backwards with some of these designs. It's odd to me that you can't do versus against the computer, practicing in training mode and doing the trials will only take you so far. Although the best experience you're probably going to get is online. Get ready for that Dante, Wolverine and Deadpool match up every time. Don't be a Jimmy!
Finally we were lucky enough to capture a few matches:
Cinderkin VS goukijones
Cinderkin VS BatRastered
