Zero2990's Dead Island character build (Sam B)

By: Zero2990 Aug 20, 2012 | 5 Comments

I decided to start creating character builds because I see to many newbs online

So some of us was excited for Dead Island before release, No? Well I was and it turned out to be a pretty shitty game, that was before I looked at character builds that make this game actual fun.. Yes Dead Island is actually fun, can you imagine? 

So the last week I've been playing as the top hat sporting power house/rapper Sam B. Some people online have no idea how Sam should be played and opt for the machine gun approach, not in this build. I'll have you cracking undead skulls in no time.. From Lv1 as a matter of fact. This build looks at Combat and Survival skills only, Sams Fury tree may seem fun but it's about as useful as ...

The Top 6 Most Powerful Characters In Street Fighter Canon

By: starlordtitus Jan 29, 2013 | 6 Comments

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

12 sfxtekken20.jpg

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.

Borderlands 2 improved on the original in many areas: story, graphics, depth of skill trees to name a few. But overall it doesn't have that super fun looting hook that the original had. Here's 10 things we hate about the sequel.

Borderlands 2 improved on the original in many areas: story, graphics, depth of skill trees to name a few. But overall it doesn't have that super fun looting hook that the original had. Here's 10 things we hate about the sequel. 

10. Follow Randy Pitchford on Twitter if you want gold keys, no way to earn them in-game.

There's a big gold treasure chest in Sanctuary (the main city) that can only be opened with a golden key. It's guaranteed to have purple rarity items in it every time you open it. Quest reward? Nah... just follow Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford's twitter and you'll have more keys than you know what to do with. There's no other way to get them. Kinda lame.

9. DLC that doesn't give you any rewards for your maxed out characters.

In the original Borderlands, the DLC would give you bonus backpack space, additional skill points, and a giant bank. BL2's DLC doesn't give you any of this. Once you hit the max level and have used all your eridum upgrades for ammo/backpack space, there's nothing for your character to get in the DLC save for some unique weapons. Most of those suck too (see point 3).

8. Umpteen currencies

Borderlands 1 had money... the economy was way off though as you'd often be displayed at $9999999 and not be able to see how much money you actually had. Many guns showed this price too. Instead of just fixing this in the sequel Gearbox added Eridium as a secondary currency to buy ammo and backpack upgrades. Then, in the DLC, they introduced Seraph Crystals and Torgue Tokens. This plus the golden keys, gave us 5 numbers to track that only worked in certain areas.

7. Anemic backpack space

Before DLC, the original BL maxed out at 42 backpack slots. BL2 maxed out at 27. Wait, what? The bank introduced in Borderlands' second DLC (Moxxi) also stored up to 42 items while the BL2 bank (included in the main game) only stored 16, it has since been upped to 20, while the backpack has gone to 33. Meanwhile, in the original, you could get up to a 60 item backpack if you got all the DLC and lucked out in some of the second quests.

6. Ammo collection mini-game

Do you like opening ammo crates and picking up ammo? Well if you do, you'll love BL2. Due to many guns firing more than one bullet per trigger pull, lowered ammo capacities, and the lack of guns/mods that regen ammo, you'll be scrounging for ammo constantly. God help you if you use a rocket launcher. In a game about guns, I don't know why Gearbox felt it necessary to make the ammo feel so limited.

5. Slag

Borderlands 2 introduced Slag, a debuff element that makes enemies take more damage when you switch to another element type. It's pretty useless in normal mode, but kinda useful in the second playthrough. In the later released 3rd playthrough (UVHM) slag is absolutely necessary. You can't win without it as you'll just burn through all your ammo trying to kill anything that's not slagged. This reduces the types of play styles that you can use and obviously requires you dedicate some of your gear to slag. Bye bye diversity... everyone's the same now.

4. Rabid stalkers

Have you fought these? Ugh... the move faster than you, can down you in two hits, can turn invisible and strike out of nowhere, have a ton of health and don't get distracted by anything. Most annoying ememy in both games and DLC. Runner up is the Rabid skags. They seem completely unbalanced and fighting multiple badasses is easier than dealing with one of these baddies.

3. Terrible guns

For a game about having bazillion-er guns there certainly don't seem to be that many. In fact, it feels like there's less than the first game. If you only count guns that are actually useful, then the number drops even further, eliminating whole manufacturerers of guns. With one or two exceptions (dat kerblaster!) the orange guns in BL2 don't seem as fun to me as the original either. I miss my Maliwan shotties!

2. Orange weapons useless 2 levels later (gets worse the higher the level)

I feel more powerful at level 69 in the original Borderlands while carrying a level 53 gun, than I do at (current max) level 61 in BL2 carrying a level 60 orange weapon. Every level you go higher, the difference one level makes gets bigger too. You need at level gear at all times, and to get some good ones you'll use a golden key that you can only get out of game on twitter. 

1. No rewards (drops are awful, chests are worse, vendors LOL)

In Borderlands, a bandit would be shooting you with an epic weapon and upon his death he would drop that weapon. That doesn't happen in BL2, they just drop shit. The chests are full of shit, and the vendors are just laughably filled with white shit. You can play for hours and hours and never see an orange weapon. You probably won't even get an at-level purple unless you have a golden key either. It just feels like you don't get rewarded for playing this game the way you did in the first Borderlands. The only thing that drops anything good are the legendary loot midgets that randomly pop out of ammo crates in the third playthrough (UVHM) and they most often will drop a relic.

Razer Onza hands-on CES 2011 with goukijones

By: goukijones Jan 10, 2011 | 10 Comments

Quick there's a scruffy white dude looking at the xbox controller, send out the cute little Asian girl. Heard. goukijones literally gets a hand all over experience with the new Razer Onza controller for Xbox 360.

Seriously, everything was completely professional. I did not care for this controller at all. I don't like cords and it comes with a 15 foot cord. sad face. There is no confirmed wireless version. The two extra shoulder buttons are programable and that is a cool idea. But they are too close togther. Maybe that would take some getting used to. I was also not impressed with the d-pad. Microsoft just created the twisty d-pad, which is great. The Razer Onza has another flat surface for the d-pad. Jimmy don't like that. The highlight of the controller is the adjustable thumbsticks. I really think that will make a huge differnce in any FPS experience. Hey yo, send me a wired one for free and then maybe I'll consider buying a wireless one.

DragonKiss83's quest for a Street Fighter X Tekken team

By: dragonkiss83 Feb 12, 2012 | 12 Comments

After a while being away from Gouki.com I have returned to find a challenge, I must somehow choose a team from a roster of the stars of Street Fighter and Tekken. Wish me luck.

The death of my pc has kept me from being able to post on here since November, but with a Laptop ready to go I return to the site to do some catching up, and what do I find?  Gouki.com has another kickass giveaway going on.  And this time it was for Street Fighter X Tekken.  All it takes is write a story about the team you want to play as, easy right.  Wrong. As I look over the roster I realize that a team of two characters just isn't big enough.

The truth is from the Tekken side I have a few favorites, Jin and Kazuya are at the top of the list but you can't overlook Yoshimitsu or King.

If they had the right Jin He'ld be on the team for sure.

I just couldn't decide.  So I decided to check out the Street Fighter side.  And it just made things worse.  Ibuki felt like a sure thing, at first.

But as I looked at the list there were just to many great characters to choose from.  Akuma (Gouki) is always high on the list

.

And you just can't over look Cammy...

or Bison.

This just keeps getting more complicated.  I'm sure all use them all in various combinations until I find the right mix, but I still have to start somewhere.  So I just keep watching videos and reminiscing about all the fun I've had with them in the past.  And then it hit me.  What better team could I start with?  How was it not obvious from the start?

Poison and Juri!  Juri is one of the craziest female characters to ever put the digital beatdown on anyone.  And Poison can throw down with the best of them with the added bonus of distracting your opponent as the wonder if she's packing heat.  The quest was over! For now at least.  Until I have a chance to try the characters out and really get into the mechanics of the game (including how much I suck with various characters) I can't be sure what my final team will be, but I do have a place to start.

Best of luck to all of you who enter.   And remember don't be a Jimmy!

Gouki.com #1

 

And just for the Jimmys...

 enjoy.

Borderlands 2 Grab Your Gun

By: dragonkiss83 Aug 12, 2011 | 3 Comments

What good are a ton of guns if they are all the same? Borderlands 2 is going to make sure you know what you're packing.

In Borderlands there were countless gun that you could find and use.  Some had special powers, like the wave gun, others were kind of generic.  But they all had a brand, could you tell them apart?  This time around Gearbox wants to be sure you know who made your gun.

The Tediore guns seem to have a special style to them.  When you run out of bullets you can throw it like a grenade, or leave ammo in for a bigger explosion.  The gun will then respawn.  Now that sounds like fun to me.

The Bandits will also be in the gun business this time around.  You could be sporting a bottle instead of a scope or a  screw instead of your sight.  But they are going to offer the biggest clips.

Torque is going to bring the heavy hitters.  These guns are all about a show of force.

These are going to be the sleek guns according to Gearbox, to me that means silencers and and assasin feel.

Jakobs should be a name you remember from the first game.  This time around they will be bringing the old school guns and lots of damage.

Dahl is another familiar name.  They will be offering up more realistic guns along the lines of what you see in your average FPS.

And Hyperion brought us claptrap so you can expect that to be the style you have.

Vladof will be hooking you up with the guns that are all about the fire rate.  And as an added bonus they will sport minigun barrels.

With this much thought being put in for your guns my hopes are even higher for the rest of the game.  They are taking the time to be sure that each maker has their own look and feel.  And with any FPS your gun choice defines your play style.  Will you be the guy who picks of the enemy from a distance or do you want to blow them apart?  Borderlands 2 will let you play your way.  Are you a spray and pray player or a gunslinger? You're covered.  And of course I can't help but to hope we will see even more alien tech.  Did you have a favorite gun from the first game or did you just use whatever you could find?

Don't be a jimmy.  Let's hear what you hope they reveal next. Maybe what gun maker you are going to be looking for.  What other types of characters do you want?  We already know the Berserker will be able to do some double weilding what other perks do you want?

Borderlands 2 Axton the Commando build guide

By: BatRastered Mar 30, 2013 | 1 Comments

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.

Build here: http://talent.87bazillion.com/2/commando.php?41030000005500010000055050130151

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.

http://talent.87bazillion.com/2/commando.php?52550115115100000000015050110000

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!

http://talent.87bazillion.com/2/commando.php?51050100005500315015115010000000

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. :)

If you grew up in American arcades you know fight sticks nowadays just aren't the same. That's because back then they were different. Watch this installation video & transformation into an old school American style stick.

Installation:

  • Sanwa Octagonal Restrictor Gate
  • Sanwa Bat top

Both the items were purchased from FoucsAttack.com. Total price including shipping $17.20 USD.

Here's the video recorded during the installation. I've never done anything like this. Listen closely for some pro-tips.

I can't tell if I'm the good guys or the bad guys in this game. I have an automated steam turret that drops from a flying vehicle and murders a bunch of people. Who are probably scared to death about the giant machines falling out of the sky.
