E3 2011 Exclusive: Team Gouki checked out Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon. While BatRastered grills the PR Jimmy, GoukiJones raips on screen. Later FnJimmy offers his take as well. Don't be a Jimmy!
Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon is a cheap game Jimmy, $40 bucks out the gate. We might have a serious deal of fun here. 3 player online co-op, 4 different suits to use and upgrade, tons of bugs and aliens to shoot and destructible environments. Developed by Vicious Cycle Software out of North Carolina, EDF could be their best game yet. Of course "could be" is the key word there since I haven't actually played the final product. I am hype.
I had fun while playing the demo. You can check out my killin' bugs and dropping buildings in the video below, while BatRastered asks as many questions as he can.
E3 2011 Exclusive Interview and Gameplay
Dragon's Dogma looks amazing, but how does it play? Team Gouki got hands-on with this new Capcom RPG at E3 2011. 7 Minutes of gameplay featuring the Chimera battle and FnJimmy's exclusive take.
Before I get into the FnJimmy take and the 7 minutes video let me just tell you, I am hype for this game. This was the first game I played at E3 this year and I was terrible at it. I fought the Griffin, like you've seen from the video. I had no idea what was going on, later I figured out that I was supposed to coordinate with my party to take down the giant flying Jimmy bird. The load screen that shows you the button is hilarious. I've never seen so many commands for one game.
I got my butt kicked by that Griffin, I'm sure if I had a little more experience with the game, I would have raiped it. I don't know how I feel about the party system just yet. You can see in the video below that graphics -especially when the Chimera finally dies- needs a little work. I guess we'll have to wait and see when the game is released sometime in 2012. Sad face.
7 Minutes of Gameplay and FnJimmy's Exclusive Take

A quick visit to the Majesco booth at E3 2011. BloodRayne Betrayal is for XBLA and PSN.
While at E3 -now almost a month ago, I can't believe it- I stopped by the Majesco booth to see BloodRayne Betrayal. I met with Michael Herbster who also worked on last years Batman: The Brave and the Bold video games. Mike was cool and I was in a rush to another appointment and only had a few minutes with Majesco. Mike explained the game to me and showed me some of his moves in the game.
BloodRayne Betrayal is a hack and slash XBLA/PSN game. It's $15 and honestly that's a little steep. There's only a few levels and even less boss fights. The game tries to give you replay value with a scoring system for each map, but still $15? Check out the video, wait hold on, let me show you something more interesting.
E3 2011 Exclusive Video
Here's some pictures I selected to show you guys what E3 looks like as you're running from meeting to meeting. Check the Jimmy laying down in the middle of the walk way. Nubfarm.
Enjoy the pictures. Leave me some comments please. Thanks.

FnJimmy and BatRastered wrap-up E3 2011 from the show floor. FnJimmy has over 200 friends!
Another E3 is officialy behind us. We'll be back next year for more June 5-7, 2012! (Assuming, of course, the world doesn't end before then.) Here's FnJimmy and BatRastered blithering and blathering about what was hot and what was not at this year's E3:
Be sure to check out all of our E3 2011 coverage there are over 80 stories, plenty of exclusive pics and vids, a ton of nonsense, but never any bullshit...
Let us know in the comments what you liked and hated about this year's E3.

FnJimmy and BatRastered go head to head on UC3 multiplayer at the Sony booth at E3 2011.
FnJimmy and I were walking through the Sony booth when we noticed they were giving away UC3 t-shirts for playing the multiplayer demo. We got our chance, but they ran out of shirts before we were done. Instead, they gave us some DLC codes for the game! Stay tuned to G, as we'll be giving those out when Uncharted 3 is released. Mystery skin weapon #4 FTW!
Here's some Jimmy (who, I swear, is not actually FnJimmy) playing just like FnJimmy.
FnJimmy says the controls were "loose". I guess. I thought they worked, okay. My problem, like all PS3 games was the layout. R1 is not a trigger... FFS! The controller diagram posted under the TV said down on the d-pad to reload... WTF? I never reloaded manually, just let it happen when I ran out.
Here's FnJimmy's official take:
Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception will be available exclusively for the Playstation 3 on November 1, 2011.
FnJimmy's favorite game (based on time spent playing) of E3.
From Dust allows you to mold the landscape by moving sand, water, lava and more around the map to help the people survive. FnJimmy would not stop playing this game, we must have been there for a good half an hour. I think he railed the first two levels before we left. I think it had something to do with the Ubisoft booth babe who was giving him the demo.
Here's his official take afterwards...
From Dust will be available exclusively on XBOX Live Arcade July 27, 2011 for 1200 MSP.

FnJimmy gets a demo with ITSP and Michel Gagne in the Microsoft booth at E3 2011.
If you like Metroid-vania style gaming, but don't like the platform jumping aspect of it, I've got a game for you. Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet takes the single world, upgrade yourself to reach new areas and back track to explore old areas in further detail concept and applies it to a spaceship flying around this world. With a Limbo-esque art style and an arcade price tag, this one is looking like a winner.
FnJimmy got some hands on time with the game and, right in front of designer Michel Gagne, proceeded to crash it. Unfortunately we weren't filming when that happened. :( Here's FnJimmy's offical take to soften the blow.
Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet will be released exclusively for the XBOX Live Arcade on August 3, 2011 for 1200 MSP.
FnJimmy goes hands on with the new Toy Soldiers game at the Microsoft booth E3 2011
Toy Soldiers: Cold War is an action strategy game that occasionaly has you jumping in to first person mode to aid your units. FnJimmy got some hands on time with the developers from Signal Studios. There are co-op and compettive multiplayer modes and, of course leaderboards to rail.
Here's FnJimmy's official take:
Toy Soldiers: Cold War will be released exclusively on XBOX Live Arcade August 17, 2011 for 1200 MSP.
