E3 2011 quick take: Resistance 3 in 3D

By: BatRastered Jun 21, 2011 | 5 Comments

I got a chance to play Resistance 3 at Sony's E3 2011 booth, here's my take.

FnJimmy and I were waiting in line to play some Resistance 3 at Sony's booth. We thought we were going to play some multiplayer. Turns out we were playing the campaign even though they had the TVs set up side by side like the do for all their MP demos (like Uncharted and Starhawk). The Sony rep points me at the second TV in the row, lucky me, I got the one with 3D enabled. I put the goggles on over my glasses, not particularly comfortable, but not too bad until I also try to put the headphones on, now I've got three things on my ears.

Anyway the game controlled and felt like I expected, complete with the Sony R1 instead of trigger to fire that I've come to hate and expect in every exclusive PS3 game. (Seriously, WTF?) 

I don't know if something was wrong with the 3D goggles (low battery?) or if all the E3 lights and flashes were interfering with the signal, but I had a bunch of cross talk, to the point that I had two reticules to aim through which obviously made targeting a bit of a trick. I wasn't sure if I should aim at the left, right, or split the difference. By the end of the demo... well I didn't stay for the end of the demo, I just quit after about 5 minutes as I did not want to spend the rest of my day at E3 with a splitting (see what I did there) headache.

Resistance seems like an above-average FPS in a market flooded with them, so I'm not super hyped about it (especially given the PS3 exclusive controls, I like my FPS on the 360).  I'm totally not excited for 3D to come to my house any time soon.

Resistance 3 ships September 6, 2011 for the PS3.

Sentinel May Not Be in Marvel vs. Capcom 3?

By: Cinderkin Jan 22, 2011 | 22 Comments

It appears that Ryota Niitsuma, Marvel vs. Capcom 3's producer, has disconfirmed Sentinel in an interview conducted with Eurogamer Espana (Google Translate link), which was originally written in Spanish.

This normally wouldn't be too big of a deal, but someone posting under the name Lupinko has been leaking information about MvC3 for some time, and has been extremely accurate to date, revealing numerous characters in advance. He claimed Sentinel and Hsien-Ko would be announced, but Niitsuma's statement today goes directly against one of his predictions.



Here's a translated version of the relevant paragraph from RyanCE.

Ryota Niitsuma: Indeed, we could not choose characters that were not on [Marvel's] list, and if there were some we wanted to use Marvel told us "do not pick that, take this one instead." In this sense, we wanted to bring back a couple of characters from MvC2, such as Juggernaut and Sentinel, but we could not.

Many people are currently split over who to believe on this since Lupinko has been so accurate to date, but Niitsuma is the title's producer.



Other things of note from the article include:

• The first DLC package won't be expensive. When asked about the schedule for DLC, Niitsuma said they haven't already planned this, but, "Potentially we could release a DLC [package] every two weeks..."

• Niitsuma talks about the possibility of releasing a balance patch once the game has launched, although Capcom has made other statements like this in the past for the Street Fighter 4 series, saying they can patch the game after wards, if needed.

• There's at least one character to be revealed besides the 36 member roster. This might be Galactus, as an unplayable boss.

What do you Jimmys think? Let us know in the comments. 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.

6. Ryu

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.

25 WTF Fight Sticks

By: derkasan Oct 15, 2012 | 3 Comments

We've all seen pictures of awesome fight sticks; now it's time to see some of the worst.

The Internet is home to some of the most awesome fightstick mods out there. However, there are a number of downright goofy sticks out there as well. Some are official, some are homemade, but all of these monstrosities are bound to make to make you say "WTF?!"

Read full story...

Have your questions been answered? Ensuring that everyone is always having fun with the game seems to be something they are extremely focused on. That’s a great thing! I’m even more excited after watching this video.

*Pro-tip the video starts 38Mins in.

The Perks Video was the only new video shown during the Q&A.

There was no mention of selling these packs.  I don’t believe there will be any microtransactions, the game won’t need anything like that.  If it does… all I can say is… Don’t be an EA.

Thanks for reading!
 

A recap of my 2 days at the Las Vegas 2012 AniMegaCon. The Universe's Largest Anime Convention. Featuring: Vampy aka Linda Le, a Maid Cafe, an exclusive cosplay picture slideshow, exclusive video and a Street Fighter Tournament.

FnJimmy and Myself attended day 1. Special thanks to Jimmy for calling in sick that day to go with me. I know everybody at his work follows him on Twitter, but he was there with me, Tweeting anyway. PWN. It was all good with FnJimmy until I showed him Dragon Ball Hoshi. He lost his shit.

Here's the gist of it.

We watched the Lolita Fashion show.

Let me know if this is getting weird. While waiting for this to start, Japanese pop music played over the sound system. There was a buff chick sitting in front of us. Full on Jimmy style, he loves broad shoulders. She looked very nice though, I was checking her out. At 1 point she turns to us and asked if we knew the name of the song that was playing. Sorry lady, FnJimmy and I never heard dis shit. Some Jimmy 2 rows in front us turns around a few seconds later and shows her the title on his iPhone. FnJimmy has an iPhone, he could of pulled that info and he would have been the 1 to score the back stage pass.

FnJimmy had been complaining about food ever since we arrived. I was complaining about him stinking. The Hilton, now known has the Las Vegas Hotel, didn't have the greatest looking dining establishments. I wasn't hungry, I woke early, exercised, took a shower and ate breakfast before I left. FnJimmy did none of those things. So we went into the Paradise Cafe, it seemed I had no choice. I ordered the French Dip, I figured that was the safest thing for me to try and eat. What came to me was a soggy bun and the most dried out, alleged roast beef I ben hads ever seen. I took about 2 bites and was done. I ate the fries, they weren't great either, but at least edible. I'd stay away from the restaurant if I were you.

What about the Animegacon Jimmy? Well there were 2 anime viewing rooms, 1 put on by Cruchyroll and the other was FUNimation. We chilled in there for a few, took some shots of that Jack Dizzle! The exhibitor hall was no San Diego Comic-con, but you could walk through a couple of times. Of course there was an Artist Alley and you can always find some great artwork in there. Plus tons of panels, tons.

Here's some clips from the opening ceremonies, Featuring Ani from the Maid Cafe, Vampy, and Kirby?

The first panel we sat in was for Linda Le aka VampyBitMe. It was billed as a cosplay Q&A. In line was a bunch of dudes, I Twat this picture. 

FnJimmy wasn't even watching Vampy. After I told him about the Hoshi he was pulling up episodes on his iPhone and watching DragonBall while Vampy was standing right in front of us. Fuckin' Jimmy!

FnJimmy and I got snuck into the maid cafe to look inside. I was too cheap to pay for it. When we peaked in all I saw was 2 dudes with their shirts off. Didn't look like it was for me at that time. The maids were cute though.

We couldn't make it to the AniMegaCon on Saturday because we attended an IGL tournament. My plan WAS to get back to the AniMegaCon by 9-10 for the cosplay burlesque, that sounded like a hot ticket, but I didn't make it because of the IGL debacle. That's a whole 'nother story though.

I did make it back there on Sunday with Choke. I convinced Choke to come and enter the Street Fighter tournament with me. FnJimmy backed out at the last minute. I'm sure he was afraid to get railed in public. I had it all fucked up from the beginning tho, we both brought fight sticks for Xbox and the tournament was on PS3. We both got there at 11, but the tournament didn't start until 1. :| My bad.
While we waited we had 3 beers and watched Vampy on stage again. This time she was talking about photographers. I learned something new. When you take pictures of Cosplayers, get the shoes Jimmy! Don't cut off the shoes. The girls don't like that. Heard.

1 o'clock. Time for the Street Fighter tournament. 8 entrants! C'mon!

PS3? Aw fuck! We're screwed we both thought. No way we could win with those Jimmys ass arcade fighter sticks. Luckily there were a few friendly Jimmys there, that allowed us to play with their sticks. Sounds exciting doesn't it? Choke and I tore through the crowd. I put Choke into losers. John, a Bison player, put me into losers where I had to face Choke in losers finals. Choke defeated me.

Since John had the only PS3 fight stick, Choke had to use that arcade fighter. Just like I did when Choke eliminated me and just like Choke did when I put him into losers. So yeah, there's a streak going on here. Shout out to John, thanks for sharing your equipment. Damn anyway I write that it sounds gay. GG's.

The tournament was over and we had a little while before we had to be home for SummerSlam. Actually, I remember this clearly, because it was a cluster fuck. It was exactly 3pm and on the schedule, the Maid Cafe graduation should have been starting in the main room. We went in there and the 1:30 panel was still going. So we went back out and took some more pictures of cosplayers. I thought, okay, they're a few minutes behind. No big deal. About 15 minutes later we went back inside and it looked like the maids were getting ready. We sat there for another 20 minutes and nothing happened. It didn't look like anyone was in a hurry or concerned that they were 40 minutes behind. We finally got up and left when we saw the maids sit back down in the crowd as if they were waiting for something too. After such a great weekend, that was the only let down.

Overall this is great for Las Vegas. We had a lot of fun. It reminded me a lot of the anime cons I went to in Florida. I can't wait to be a part of AniMegaCon again next year. I wish a lot of success for AniMegaCon. Kick ass!

Evil Ryu vs Gouken

By: starlordtitus Jun 15, 2011 | 4 Comments

The Satsui No Hado has taken full form. Ryu's life was spared in the battle with Akuma and as a result, has fully engulfed Ryu with it's dark influence. Now all thirsts for is blood and a fight to the death worthy of his new found power.

Reader's Note: The following story can be played with Evil Ryu's Theme video and Gouken vs Ryu Theme video when prompted to.

After the battle with Oni, Gouken has taken some peace in the immediate area and has decided to go into the closest town to observe fighters of today's generation. As we he walks through, he notices the town is mostly empty at first glance. He see's posters plastered everywhere of a wanted man. Upon closer inspection, Gouken is surprised to see Ryu on the posters! Taken over by the dark hado, Gouken decides to stop Ryu from ravaging the town and re-seal the Satsui No Hado. He hears some yelling and screaming in the distance as he approaches the middle of the town. Behind him, he hears a voice, "Master?? Hey! Wait up!" (Gouken) "Ken? What brings you to this town?". Ken catches his breath and explains. (Ken) "Master, it's Ryu! He's in trouble! He fought against Akuma and was struck with the Shun Goku Satsu[Raging Demon]! The finishing blow nearly killed Ryu but in that moment the Satsui No Hado was released and Ryu embraced it's power!" (Gouken) "Hmm...I see." Gouken took a few seconds for thought. Akuma had already given him too much trouble as it was for him to have turned Ryu into a killer, it must have been before his battle with the villian Gouken thought, for Ken seemed to possess no knowledge that Akuma had become Oni. For now however, Gouken needed to focus on bringing Ryu's humanity back. (Gouken) "Ken, listen closely, go to Ryu  and tell him a powerful warrior awaits him for a fight to the death." (Ken) "Master?". (Gouken) "He will not be able to resist....now GO!" (Ken) I'm on it!!" Ken takes off to find Ryu, a look of determination is left on Gouken's face. What if he had killed Akuma all those years ago, would he have thwarted all this chaos.....but now was not the time, Gouken took off for the forest.

Ken finds Ryu with a civilian being choked and  risen off the ground. (Ken) "PUT HIM DOWN RYU!!" The dark warrior slowly looks upon Ken, a devious smile on his face. (Ken) "You a real fight?? There's a more powerful warrior than you waiting in the forest for a fight to the death!!" Evil Ryu looks upon Ken, he's caught his attention. He drops the man, discarding him like common trash. (Evil Ryu) "More powerful you say......heh heh heh ah ha ha ha! I HIGHLY DOUBT THAT! I will kill him as well as you!!!" Evil Ryu fires a dark Hadouken at Ken, but Ken dodges out of the way. Ken takes off through the town, Evil Ryu following closely behind. As Ken is running through the town, destruction is left behind in Evil Ryu's wake as he fires dark fireballs towards Ken. The chase brings them to the entrance edge of the forest. Ken quickly hides in the tress. (Evil Ryu) "WHERE ARE YOU!!?". Ken waits for his master in anticipation. Gouken prepares to step forward. A voice speaks to Evil Ryu, "You disappoint me Ryu." The dark warrior looks towards the shadowy trees, a tall fighter steps from the shadows. (Sagat) "I expected more integrity from you". To Gouken's and Ken's surprise, Sagat has surfaced and is apparently challenging Evil Ryu!!!

(Evil Ryu) "HA HA HA! THIS IS THE POWERFUL WARRIOR!? Tell me Sagat....does it still hurt? DOES THE SCAR I GAVE YOU STILL THRIVE WITH AGONY??". (Sagat) "My scar only reminds me of how far I've come as a warrior. I would think of all people.....you would be the one to understand a fighter's spirit is greater than any pain a punch can inflict. You've given in to the Satsui No Hado, your integrity is lost, your fists will have no honor......BUT I, RYU, WILL HELP YOU TO RECOVER THAT HONOR!" (Evil Ryu) "I CRAVE TO YOU SEE YOU TRY!!". Sagat runs forward to Evil Ryu and attacks with a Tiger Knee! Evil Ryu blocks it and counters with a Hurricane Kick! Sagat blocks the barrages of kicks then grabs the dark warrior to throw him but Evil Ryu counters by headbutting Sagat in the face! Sagat staggers but quickly regains composure! Evil Ryu dashes in and attacks with a right and left hook, Sagat blocks left to right then counters with a thrusting kick to Evil Ryu's chest! Evil Ryu blocks with both arms and the two warriors disband.

(Sagat) "Your fighting prowess has increased, Ryu. But you communicate with anger and hatred. Such lust for power will only be your ultimate downfall." (Evil Ryu) "I COULD NOT EXPECT A WEAKLING LIKE YOU TO UNDERSTAND OR BEGIN TO EVEN COMPREHEND THE POWER I NOW WEILD!.....BUT I WILL KILL YOU AND SHOW YOU FIRST HAND WHAT I CAN DO!" Evil Ryu begins to rush in. Sagat stays focused. He stands and closes his eye. Sagat thinks to himself "Ryu, were it not for you, I would have found myself an immature and selfish fighter, fueled by only the will to win. Now, I see the greatness of becoming a a true fighter, one not only with the goal to surpass his limitations, but with the goal to find an inner peace and joy through the art of communicating with one's fist. Ryu.....I WILL BRING YOU BACK FOR WHAT YOU HAVE DONE FOR ME!" Sagat opens his eye right as Evil Ryu descends upon him and Sagat then unleashes his Tiget Cannon! A powerfully focused energy blast!! He fires it point blank on Evil Ryu and a huge explosion erupts from the impact! Clouds of dust and debree cover the area, Sagat seperates himslef from the area and observes the cloud of smoke. Gouken and Ken watch from a distance. An serious look on both of their faces. Ken's eyes show concern for his friend Ryu. The clouds of smoke and debree begin to disappear and a shadowy figure is positioned at it's center. Immense energy begins to be drawn into it's center, dark energy accumilating into sphere begins to glow brightly. Evil Ryu has survived and is ready to counter with his Metsu Hadouken!!! (Sagat) "Damn, not even a scratch..." (Evil Ryu) "AH HA HA HA HA! YOU ARE NOTHING! NOW, HAAA DIEEEE!!!" The powerful energy sphere speeds over to Sagat , Sagat stands as if to face his fate, closes his eye.

[Activate Gouken vs Ryu Theme]

 

Out from the distance and blinding speed, Gouken appears before Sagat! (Gouken) "Not today!" Gouken uses the Power Of Nothingness to manipulate and transfer it's power to his own, a technique he discoverd in the fight with Oni. (Evil Ryu) "What?" (Gouken) "Ryu."...(Evil Ryu) "Old man....errrr.....ugh.....YOU WILL NOT STAND IN MY WAY!" (Gouken) Ryu, it is not too late to turn your back on this madness. I know you are still in there and I will help you see it." (Evil Ryu) "NO! This hadou......IT GRANTS ME POWER, INCREDIBLE POWER! AND I WILL KILL ANY AND ALL WHO STAND IN MY WAY!!!" Gouken's face displays intent determination to silence the dark hado from his former student. (Gouken) "Sagat, allow me to fight in your stead, I must teach my student one final lesson" Sagat looks at Gouken with a sudden stare of awe....(Sagat) ".....I understand". Gouken knods as Sagat joins Ken on the battlefield's side. (Evil Ryu) " I AM TIRED OF WAITING!" Evil Ryu fires a dark hadouken at Gouken, but Gouken uses his Dashing Palm to bypass and dodge the fireball, striking Evil Ryu in his stomach with great speed! (Evil Ryu) "Ugh! OLD MAN YOU WILL NOT LEAVE THIS FIGHT ALIVE!" Evil Ryu rushes in and begins barrage Gouken with punches and kicks. Gouken blocks and dodges the blows hit per hit. Evil Ryu fakes a right kick and 360's into a lunging right punch! Gouken blocks the blow but the fist spirals throught his arms barely touching his chest! The light touch feels like a bee sting to Gouken. Evil Ryu has developed a fighting style that incorporates a burining sensation upon each hit to maximize pain inflicted on his opponents! Gouken looks at Evil Ryu. A malicious grin on his face. (Evil Ryu) "WHAT'S THE MATTER OLD MAN!!?"  Evil Ryu lunges forward again with his left fist but Gouken catches his wrist and directs Evil Ryu's body to his Gouken's left elbow, landing a blow to Evil Ryu's side! (Evil Ryu) "RRRRGGHH I WILL KILL YOU!" Evil Ryu's red aura blazes and the Satsui No Hado begins pouring out of the hole in his chest! Gouken see's the source of it's power and sees the opening to end the fight!

Evil Ryu rushes towards Gouken at blinding speed and Gouken readies himself. Evil Ryu undleashes his Messatsu Goshoryu!!! But Gouken applies an EX Kongoshin, a counter to disable and attack Evil Ryu, stopping his attack full force! Evil Ryu is knocked away spinning in the air. Gouken, with inhuman speed, rushes in to the spinning Evil Ryu. While in Evil Ryu is spinning in mid air, Gouken quickly uses The Power Of Nothingness to seal in the Satsui No Hado, applying multiple key points to act as seals. The act displays almost a dance in magnificence. In the next moment, Evil Ryu crashes to the ground. The red aura disappears. Ken and Sagat walk over to Gouken. (Ken) "Is he...going to be okay?" (Gouken) "Attend to him, he will be fine" Ken rushes over to Ryu, his appearance now back to normal. A scar on his chest of the former gaping whole is visible. Gouken begins to take leave. (Sagat) "Gouken!". Gouken stops but doesn't turn around. (Sagat) "Thank You." Gouken then begins to move forward disappears into distance, a setting sun obscuring his figure. Sagat turns to Ken. (Sagat) "Ken, I will take my leave, but Ryu wakes up, tell him I wish to challenge him when he's at full stregnth." Ken pauses, and then smiles. (Ken) "You got it!" Sagat then leaves. Ryu's eyes begin to open. (Ken) "Ryu!" (Ryu) "What happened..." (Ken) "Ryu.....hahaha! You've been given a second chance man, you've been given a second chance..."

Cosplay Girls

By: starlordtitus Jul 2, 2011 | 12 Comments

It was time to take the gloves off and add a bit of personal taste to what I like in cosplay girls. Keeping the class of course is important so there's just enough to to leave to the imagination.

I added some girls that I know to this, with their permission of course and some I thought I'd share in general. Some are very good, others, just plain sexy xD. Cosplay has always been a cool subject to get into, but it wasn't till girls started getting involved that it was taking to a new level. That point where you say "damn I suddenly like that character more.." LOL XD What I personally like about some of these girls is the accuracy. The closer to the character, the better. Any girl can do things to look sexy, but it's another ball park when you get the character's look down as well as look great in the outfit. Some actually improvised and made their own outfits which is additional props to them. Here are just some photos of girls who know how to rock cosplay.

 

This is probably the hottest Pikachu I've ever seen LOL

 

As Superman fan I have to appreciate this bombshell.

 

Isn't that the truth XD

 

This one is just funny, ah black men and their obsessions with big white girl booties xD GO AKUMA!

 

This is probablly one of the top picks.

 

In conclusion, hot damn. I think I'm going to find a girlfriend who cosplay for me LOL just saying xD

 

 

The future -or the end of the FPS depending on how you look at it- could possible be Brink. A game long in development over seas in the UK is finally about to grace our consoles. Learn about the gameplay of Brink with these 2 new videos.

You Jimmys know I'm excited for this game. If you're on Xbox 360 and planing on getting Brink make sure you hit me up so we can get the Team Gouki Brink Clan, the TGBC PWNn on Tuesday. And for those of you wondering, no, FnJimmy will not be on our team. We can't be looking like nuabs online.

Megacon 2010 Exclusive video

By: reipuerto Apr 5, 2010 | 3 Comments

Mega full of what?

Hello everyone. Rei here with my first Megacon event in Orlando, Florida at the Orange County Convention Center.


This convention is MASSIVE due to its style. It caters to anime, sci-fi, comic book, video games, and many more. The lines were long and massive in length, because to see a line just for the tickets takes about 47mins just to get in, it’s an achievement on its own.
With cosplayers not only limited to those of anime, sci-fi, and gaming, fans from T.V. shows were there too. Star Terk’s trekkies and Star Wars’ storm troopers too. A distinct style or theme was introduced to me called; Steam Punk. INCREDIBLE!! Cos-players ranged from ALL shapes and sizes, young and old, tall and small, normal to the very strange.
This convention is so huge, I honestly didn’t believe the whole ”You only see one person once, and you don’t see them again.” deal. But I was wrong. With the exception of the parents that sat in the corner, I didn’t get a chance to see the first group of cosplayers I ran into. I even looked through my friend’s pictures from Megacon and said, “ I never saw THAT person!!”. To me, it was like I was in a different convention altogether! Lol! The cosplayers were great, the attendees were nice, vendors making deals like crazy and the day flew on by.

I hope you enjoyed the video and my experience to a convention out side of Miami, peace!
