Conduit 2 Golden Video Review with FnJimmy

By: fnjimmy May 28, 2011 | 8 Comments

Apparently Sega wanted me to review this game so they sent me a free copy. I'm world famous and Sega loves me. Jealous? Hopefully they get what they've paid for me. Watch my review.

When I started this game I couldn't figure out how to open the doors. Therefore the game must be glitched. I talk about it in a couple of times. I had to restart the level and then I found the actual path I was supposed to go down. Now not knowing for sure, if the game was glitch or just my brain. Leave your comments below.  BTW, I don't care.

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.

[Activate Evil Ryu's Theme]

 

 

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..."

30th Anniversary Capcom Character Encyclopedia

By: core Nov 16, 2013 | 0 Comments

The 30the Anniversary Capcom Character Encyclopedia is an interesting book with a few content issues, but it ultimately worth picking up.

30th Anniversary Capcom Character Encyclopedia is an interesting book. Artistically, it’s what you expect from Capcom. There is a history of beautiful designs and pieces of art from the company on every page. You get roughly two illustrations of each character. Sometimes these illustrations are a mix of classic and modern art, sometimes just classic. The page quality is great. They used high quality stock to print this book out. The cover is nicely designed, and the binding feels solid. Again, this is a nice book artistically. It’s lacking a bit on content though.

Every character in the book gets a couple paragraphs explaining who they are and there is a data section on each page. These little data sections list things like first appearance, last appearance, height, weight, other names, occupation, arch enemy and a few other small things. It would have been great for them to go more in-depth on each character’s information. A list of games the character has been in, which consoles the games were on, who the characters creator is or even moves lists for the fighting game characters would have been interesting. It feels like what we were given was put together in a short amount of time.

The character choices that were made for this book are interesting as well. All in all there are 207 characters from Capcom’s history. The choices are interesting because there are characters you would think they would absolutely include at the very least because they’re in games that came out recently and there are characters that haven’t been in a game for a couple decades. Characters like Dudley, C.Viper, many Mega Man robots, and many others from Street Fighter, Rival Schools, Power Stone, etc. are left out. Then there are characters most people have never heard of included. There’s Agrippa from Shadow of Rome, Baby Head from Captain Commando, Lonely Astronaut from Section Z and a few others. There are also characters that are grouped instead of given their own page. The whole cast of Battle Circuit and King of Dragons each share a single page. I can appreciate the choice to include so much history, but the amount of characters they left out makes this feel like volume 1. The book isn’t called volume 1 though.

With that said, at $16.99 this book is a great value. It’s rare that you find a book like this and of this quality for less than $25. While I would have loved to have seen a book two or three times larger that costs $50, this makes for a great book to have sitting on a coffee table. It’s fun to flip through it and read about the characters I’ve spent so much of my life playing as.

Give it a buy. You can’t beat the value. If you a Capcom fan, you shouldn’t give it a second thought.

FFXIV How to travel for cheap - Save dat GIL

By: goukijones Sep 9, 2013 | 0 Comments

Yeah you can teleport yourself anywhere in the game, if you've touch the local Artheyehe, but you can also ride a chocobo out there for next to nothing. Plus it's on auto-pilot. Go take a piss or do a stretch you Jimmy!

So whenever you get out to a new area always touch the Crystal so you can tele right? Okay, also talk to the Chocobo porter to see where he can take you & for how much. Most porters outside of town can take you BACK to town for very cheap. Later on in the game the porter in town will start to unlock more & more areas to travel to. This will save you a ton of money early on in the game. Gimmie dat GIL!

Thanks for reading.

Naughty Bear 2 Panic in Paradise coming soon.

By: dragonkiss83 Jul 22, 2012 | 3 Comments

Naughty Bear didn't have the biggest audience but if you were one of the few who enjoyed it I have good news.

In case you missed it the original Naughty Bear let you control a homicidal teddy bear.  You were able to find various weapons and could also use a lot of environmental objects as weapons, such as a grill.  They even had special costumes of everything from a pirate to a superhero, with pre-order only costumes of Jason and Freddy that I've still never got :( .  The story kicked off with this teddy bear being left out of a party and the announcer sends him on a killing spree.  Now you need to have a special sort of twisted sense of humor to really enjoy this game.  The graphics weren't close to cutting edge, the voice acting was cheesy, and the controls weren't perfect.  But the game was more about getting a laugh than being game of the year.

It was announced that a sequel was in the works and then it kind of dropped off the map.  Many of us assumed the game had been dropped and information on the sequel was nowhere to be found.  And then today I was reading through a copy of Game Informer that I got signed up to again by shopping at Gamestop and I randomly found details about Naughty Bear 2.

The sequel is called Naughty Bear Panic in Paradise and will be a digital download for both PSN and XBLA.  It will be here in September so it will be lost in the shuffle with big name titles coming out, but as a downloadable game it should have a reasonable price.  Maybe the jimmys here at Gouki.com will even set FnJimmy up for a Golden Review.  I know I'll be playing it either way.

And they even dropped an announcement trailer for any of you interested.

And some gameplay footage,

So will any of you be playing?  Ever even hear of the first one?

After teasing us with Catwoman gameplay trailers and demos at E3, did Rocksteady and WB deliver on the hype?

Given that this is a rant, you can probably guess my answer to that question is "no". First of all you only get 4 Catwoman missions that take place during the campaign. You aren't allowed to switch out dynamically like they showed us at the E3 demo until after the main story is complete and you're in "free roam" mode to finish up any remaining side-quests. That was a huge disappointment to me.

Catwoman gameplay trailer

I'm not even going to complain about the fact that you don't even get the Catwoman missions on the disc, they are instead a DLC code included in the retail package to make some money off of used game sales. That has been covered by numerous other Jimmies already. That and the game works just fine without it.

Actually that's one of my biggest problems with the Catwoman pack, its optional nature makes it feel really tacked-on when you're thrown into a Catwoman mission. Batman is in a precarious position and the game just switches over to Catwoman for a little while doing something completely unrelated (like fighting through Poison Ivy's hideout). There is one interesting point, at the end of the third Catwoman mission, where you're given the option to go out one door to help Batman or the other to leave him on his own. You should check out what happens if you leave the Bat on his own if you have the cat-pack, but it's not worth buying because of it.

Another issue, is you are given the option to upgrade Catwoman's abilities in addition to Batman's. I shouldn't have to tell you what a waste of XP that is given there are only 4 missions. Pro Tip: Upgrade Batman first, only spend upgrades on Catwoman after Batman is maxed. The first two Catwoman missions take place very early in the game (the first, in fact, before you even see Batman) and the last two take place very late in the game (the last after the main story is complete) so there is a very long time in the middle where you will not hear from Catwoman. Save those upgrades!

The Riddler's puzzles for Catwoman are also a bit of a joke. Most of the trophies are simply acquired by using her "cling to the mesh ceiling" ability to collect a trophy that is in plain sight, but seemingly out of reach. Half of those you'd have to walk over anyway to progress through the room. Then there are the ones behind locked doors, these are simply picked up after Batman has unlocked the door earlier in the story. Huge sad face.

I'm playing through the "new game plus" mode right now, and I can't say I'm looking forward to any of the Catwoman scenes, which is disappointing to say the least. You can also use her in the challenge rooms, but they are the exact same rooms as Batman, do you really care to beat-em-up with the Cat instead of the Bat? I don't.

I still love this game, and give it a Buy rating, in fact it is probably my GOTY so far... but don't be afraid to buy it used or borrow from a friend, you won't be missing anything important in the Catwoman DLC. That, at least, you can flush.

Outland Co-op Trailer

By: goukijones Apr 13, 2011 | 6 Comments

Gotta love quality looking XBLA/PSN Co-op games. This is Outland, published by Ubisoft.

I think making games where half of it is played in the shadows, is kind of a cop-out by developers. Outland still looks like a lot of fun. I'm gonna need a friend to play. Sad face.

From YouTube: Watch now the co-op trailer of Outland! Coming April 27th on Xbox Live Arcade!

Cave Johnson's Combustible Lemons

By: grey walrus May 27, 2011 | 6 Comments

Keeping with the theme of showing off all awesome portal 2 replicas, here are cave johnson's exploding lemons.

They're made from fake lemons from a craft store, but still look really freakin cool if you ask me.

The guy who made them said he rigged it so that Cave johnson's exploding lemon rant goes off after you pull the pin, and that's pretty awesome.

Razer reveals the Blade gaming laptop at PAX

By: BatRastered Aug 30, 2011 | 8 Comments

You want to play PC games on a laptop, but don't want to sacrifice true portability? Razer has the answer, but it will cost you...

Yeah, $2,800 is a little steep for a laptop these days. It is made of milled aluminum like a Mac Book Pro and has some insane specs:

  • 2.8GHz Intel® Core™ i7 2640M Processor
  • 8GB 1333MHz DDR3 Memory
  • 17.3" LED Backlit Display (1920x1080)
  • NVIDIA GeForce® GT 555M with NVIDIA® Optimus™ Technology
  • 2GB Dedicated GDDR5 Video Memory
  • Built-in HD Webcam
  • Integrated 60Wh Battery
  • 320GB 7200rpm SATA HDD
  • Wireless Network 802.11 b/g/n Compatible
  • 16.81" (Width) x 10.9" (Depth) x 0.88" (Height); 6.97lbs (Weight)

No word on how long that battery will last with all that power hungry hardware, but dang that's a sweet setup. The custom "switchblade" buttons that change based on the game your playing and the touchscreen/touchpad mouse are not really available anywhere else, so there's that. I still can't help but think that I could buy a Mac Book Pro plus a super high powered desktop for that much money though.
