Sega released a new trailer of Sonic Generations showing off a pretty memorable level, City Escape.
The music is that Nanana song from My Chemical Romance but I'm hoping it's just a promotional song and the traditional music from Sonic Adventure 2 stays intact. Plus at the last 3 seconds, you see Sonic flying through Spagonia, a level from Sonic Unleashed. But if there's any level from Unleashed I want, it would be Apotos.
And here's an interview with one of the devs that I wanted to post a while ago.
I played the Dead Island at E3 2011 and ...
GoukiJones wasn't allowed to film any of the game so thats why this video is shot the way it is.
I was all over E3 2011 chasing down developers and interviews. When I had time, I took some pictures of booth babes. Here's what I think are good enough to show you Jimmys, but you must decide. List your favorites in the comments.
There are only 19 pictures. When you talk about booth babes, include a number so we know what you're talking about. Enjoy these pictures, sorry I'm no Rei Puerto. He'll be back next year for sure. Don't be a Jimmy!

Games I wish to get some / more information on from this years E3.
E3 is coming up very soon and...I can't go. But mods of Gouki.com are! My wishlist contains Tekken X Street fighter, Serious Sam 3 BFE, El Shaddai: Ascension of Metatron, DmC and Bioshock Infinite. Here is why:
Tekken x Street Fighter
We have been getting lots of information and videos on SFxTekken but not the other way around. Recently getting into Tekken it was a bummer hearing Namco hasn't really started Tekken x Sf. Apparently Namco is showing something off about it at this years E3. Even before getting into Tekken, I was wondering how they would treat fireball characters in Tekken (Tekken has sidestepping so....) Also Tekken characters move lists are huge. The amount of target combos they have highly exceeds SF and the specials as well. In SfxTekken they shown Tekken elements such as launchers and ground juggles. I would love to see what SF-esque mechanics will be put into the Tekken Version.
Serious Sam 3 BFE
Am I a Duke Nukem fan? No. But I loved playing Serious Sam. Not much is known about this new Serious Sam besides it has amazing HD graphics and brings back some of the older enemies in the series in a visually glorious way. Graphics of course aren't everything, I loved Serious Sam for the gameplay, cheezy one liners and how very un-serious it was.
The loads of cheesy-ness and ridiculous weapons and enemies made the series extremely enjoyable. Apparently the game is a prequel to Serious Sam: First encounter and your in Egypt. The game will have 16 player Co-op in Campaign, holy hell. I don't know what type of in-sane campaign they will have going on but that sounds intense. I hope some sort of player vs player multiplayer game modes are announced. The older Sam games had it, this beautiful one should have it too!
El Shaddai: Ascension of Metatron
El Shaddai isn't a game many people know about, but they should. It's been released in Japan already and I've been eagerly awaiting the American release and deep info on the game. It is a third person action game with some plat-forming. The fighting looks amazing with cool fluid movements and very interesting graphics. Mainly the look and feel of the game seem very enjoyable. The closest thing I could relate this game too is Devil May Cry. If you put a Dante skin in the game, it would work just fine ;) Hopefully I can see more in-depth explanations of what Shadai has to offer because although it looks amazing, it could get old fast.
DMC Devil May Cry
I was hyped ever since the new DMC was announced. Most people are hating on Dante's new look as the young jerk teen but I like it. A new but still badass take on a game can be good after all the years. I want a good solid gameplay video, showing what truly sets this DMC a part from the others. In the TGS video they showed off his main weapon. Which was a sword that could extend but seemed like a snake? Can't wait to see what else is in store.
Bioshock Infinite looks infinitely fun to play! The graphics are mind blowing, and the setting is crazy. On a floating colony and people go crazy and have super powers, fighting all along the city in the sky and on rails. the powers look great too. The game looks extremely action packed and worth buying already. What seemed really cool in one of the elements was how you and the girl you are with can combine powers to trigger badass explosions and such. They have been gracious enough to show us awesome previews but they didn't differ much. I want to see something new and a real release-date.
Well that is my E3 2011 wish-list. Hopefully some of you are excited by these games as well, leave a comment on which ones you want.

Fnjimmy's preview video http://gouki.com/Story/Details/pro-gamer-fnjimmys-e3-2011-preview-special
Team Gouki had a chance to play Gotham City Impostors at the Warner Bros. booth at E3 2011.
FnJimmy and I had finished playing some Arkham City and were lured into the depths of the Warner Brothers booth by this fantastic booth babe. FnJimmy has some NSFW photos from another angle I think. She's the official BatRastered booth babe of the year for staying in character and talking smack.Read full story...

Gouki.com was hand-on with Street Fighter 3 online Edition. Live gameplay from the E3 2011 show floor. My official take on the game after just playing it. Also the trailer if you have seen it. Third Strike is back bahby!
That's right I officially played the game. First watch the video of the gameplay from the show floor. You will get to see a Jimmy working his way through the different screen settings. Widescreen, classic arcade cab, HD, SD. Pay attention and you will notice the different. This is exclusive access for you to E3. See it from the eyes of a PWNr. Me.
Here's my official take.
Official trailer for SF3O - Get hype!

Exclusive audio of Hitman Absolution at the E3 2011 Behind Closed Doors Demo. Including actual demo screen shots. Also my take on the gameplay and exclusive pictures from inside the private room. Nothing you haven't seen before.
The demo starts out with Agent 47 hiding in a corner of a "derelict Library." The room was crawling with about 10-15 cops. Get ready for this comparison a lot, it looked like Batman Arkham Asylum. Agent 47 sneaks around for a bit, the cover system locked onto the walls real well and hugged corners as he snuck away from cops. He also has "Detective Vision" where he can see kind of an outline where the cops are about to patrol. A line of fire draws along the ground where the cop is about to patrol.
You can listen to the actual demo I saw, in the video below. The video includes some screen shots of what I actually saw. Then as you read on, I'll describe my thoughts on the gameplay and you can check out my actual notes from the E3 2011 Hitman Absolution demonstration.
Actual Audio from the Hitman Absolution E3 2011 Private Demo
Agent 47 sneaks around killing the cops of one by one -all of their backs are conveniently turned- and nobody in the room is the wiser. Nothing you haven't seen before. In this room the developers manage to show you a lot of the moves and stuff that's in the game. Certainly a demonstration level. I'm a real gamer though, I know what's up. A lot of BS. The sequence ends with Agent 47 taking a rookie cop hostage and I might have blanked out a little at this part, that or my flask was blocking the screen while a took another drink. He grabs the rookie and then he's surrounded by all of the cops in the room. I thought the Detective in charge shot the rookie, just to get to Agent 47. I don't know, that would be crazy right? Do you know any cops that would just shoot another cop that easily when there are 40 cops in the room and 1 bad guy. Sorry, back to the demo.
A chase ensues up there stairs and there's a little shoot out. God mode heard. Agent 47 takes no damage and escapes. He conveniently walks into another room where a helicopter is waiting outside ready to shoot the place up. Nothing you haven't seen before. This was to demonstrates the destructible environments of the game, the loud sounds and Agent 47 sneaking around some more. When he makes it to the end of the hallway/building there's a cop there. No trouble here though, the cop is facing the opposite way and doesn't see Agent 47(or give a shit about the huge helicopter attack that just went down.) Agent 47 sneaks up on cop and chokes the shit out of him. Then he puts on the cops uniform as a disguise. He then walks right out onto the ledge where the chopper is like no problem. A little ridiculous if you ask me.
No cause for alarm from the helicopter, he must not have known there was a fellow officer on that top floor. Agent 47 causally walks across the roof top as the helicopter hovers over head. He sneaks into this stoners apartment where they are growing massive amounts of weed. One of the pot heads is so stoned he Agent 47 is just hilarious, just like this demo. Then some real cops bust into the room and Agent 47 takes them out with some hand to hand combat. Nothing you haven't seen before.
He walks out into the hallway and takes the elevator downstairs right into a mini police command center set up in this hotel lobby. The room was full of cops. The game slows down as you walk pass people and they seem to notice something about you. But nothing happened in this demo, just slow down. There's all these guns and grenades on the table and it looks like he can pick them up. I'm thinking okay big shoot out coming here. Nope. He picks up a donut instead just as another cop calls him out. Agent 47 has his back is to the cop and the cop thinks Agent 47 is somebody else and is just talking to him. Agent 47 never turns around and the cop eventually gets distracted and leaves. This entire time the screen said "Push X to put the donut down." I can only imagine that if he did put the donut down and turned around the cop would have realized Agent 47 was not who he thought he was and a big shoot out would have occurred. But nothing I saw in this entire demo led me to really believe something that cool would happen.
The demo ended and according to my actual notes while watching the play through below, I found it interesting. Although I believe this entire Demo was just set up for press, the game looked like it has potential. Hitman Absolution came off to me as a Batman Arkham Asylum clone. Nothing you haven't seen before.
My actual notes while I watched the demo live.
- There's a big slice in the middle of the demo TV
- Sweet cover and trail system
- Cops can't see him right in front of them
- Cover hangs on and turns corners
- Detective Vision
- Drakes action sequence
- Disguise system - cop
- Walks into crowd of a 100 people
Let me know if you are hype for Hitman Absolution. Hype it up in the catalog and then leave a comment on this story. Oh and Don't be a Jimmy ....
E3 is so close and with all the hype going in where would you start?
I know that there are games like Twisted Metal, the Dragon Ball Z project, Ninja Gaiden 3, the Darkness 2, Elder Scrolls V Skyrim, Dead Island, Battlfeild 3, Need for Speed the Run, Soul Calibur 5, and Hitman Absolution, my first choice is X-Men Destiny. And fair warning everytime I think I'm done another games pops in my head.
I'm a die hard X-men fan so Destiny is a game I want deatils on the most.
I'ld follow it up with Ninja Gaiden 3 since it will no doubt be bad ass.
I wish that Dead or Alive 5 was going to show up, but doubt it very much. So the number three spot would go to Soul Calibur 5.
After that it starts getting harder to put them in order. Twisted Metal has me really hyped, but so does Skyrim. How do you compare car combat to a massive RPG? Street Fighter vs Tekken has to be pretty high on list also, so it would work it's way in. And the Need for Speed game could be a lot of fun or total crap, so it's a gamble. the Darkness 2 probably won't be worth waiting in line to play but it would be worth a look for a fan of the comics. Hitman isn't going to be that different than the other ones, just shinier and with some new places to hunt your targets. Dead Island looks like it will take more than a quick hands on session to really get into it. The Dragon Ball Z game is going to get swamped by fanboys so it would be a must see, but since the wait might take awhile I'ld try to get to some of the other games first. And I'm curious about Skull Girls, but waiting to see more won't kill me. I almost forgot about the new Tranformers game, but that is due to low expectaions and high hope. And that leaves Battlefeild 3. This game already looks so good I'm dying to play it. So it is a must play.
And if there was time I'ld look for the Bleach, Dynasty Warriors Gundam, and Disgaea booths if they are there. But since they are already out in Japan they might not even make a showing. And Cars 2 would make my personal list because my son is dying to play it, but I have it pre-ordered from Amazon with release day delivery so it will be here just before his and my birthdays.
Are there games that I forgot? Maybe a few that you just would love to see, but have no hope for (Darkstalkers 4)? I'm looking forward to seeing the rest of you put up your wishlists so I can see some more great choices. Don't be a jimmy. And if you need help comming up with some games for you list check out this link. http://www.gameinformer.com/b/features/archive/2011/05/18/the-games-of-e3-2011.aspx
Here's a game we got to see privately last year at E3. There is a release date attached. XCOM is looking promising.
Gouki.com saw XCOM first hand last year at E3 2010. They game appears to have a major makeover, but it is still just another FPS. Will XCOM show something new off this year. Either way the E3 2011 hype machine rolls on.
