Okay, so i just loaded up Castlevania: Harmony of Despair today and an update has appeared. this update changes quite a bit of balance to the gameplay. After experiencing the changes, I've decided to write down here what changes i noticed. Here's what to expect in this update:
- Strength increase
- Damage increase for multiple weapons
- Yasutsuna (or should I say, Alucard's broken spamable weapon) has a slower hit rate
- Spirit magic does more damage
- Decreased MP cost for Hellfire and Dark Metamorphisis?
- Increased the cost of heal to 50MP
- Heal doesn't heal as much, making the astral + skull ring combo not as effective as it used to be
- Charlotte can no longer pass through flames when heal is used
- Decreased MP cost for all magic
- Slightly faster MP regen
- Increased Hymn damage
- Hymm deals holy damage
- Increased Guardian Knuckle damage
- Damage increase for some weapons such as the Muramasa
- Beserker Mail no longer increases the amount of damage dealt from offensive souls
Whip Users (Johnathan, Julius, Richter)
- Decreased the MP cost of all sub weapons
- Holy Water damage increased
- Decreased MP cost for all magic
- Slightly faster MP regen?
- Holy Flames and Holy Lightning now also deal holy damage
- Skeletons (dead players) can now backdash and slide
- Skeletons can receive loot from boss chests
- You can self fail a run by holding LB+RB+A+B+X+Y together for 2 or 3 seconds
- Players can join a room any time while in the lobby
- When searching for custom games you can now also search for the difficulty and chapter
- Robe Decollete had a stats increase and also grants faster MP regen, making it superior to Death's Robe
- Enemies deal more damage than before
- Miser Ring can now be found on Chapter 7
- Latency bar in the lobby actually works now
- Dual Crushes deal more damage
What do you guys think about this update? leave your comments below, and please, don't be a jimmy.
Yep, that's Right. read this for info for the upcoming DLC for Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.
Okay, So I recently found out that Scott Pilgrim vs. The Wold will be coming out sometime next month. the DLC involve around two bonus mini-games, and a new playable character.
Okay, Bonus Mini-Game #1: Dodgeball
In this mode, There will be a large Volleyball on the field. The obejet of this game is to knock everyone out with the ball, and no, i don't mean one hit and they're out.
Next, Bonus Mini-Game #2: Battle Royale
You can treat this mode similar to a wrestling match. the object of this game is to win by either 1 of 2 methods: either knock you opponent out, or your opponent says out of the center ring for more that ten counts. of course, it wouldn't really be a battle royale without there being weapons outside the ring.
Finally, New Playable Character: Knives Chau
And yes, the one character that was one of the support characters you can use during the game (in fact, she's your first support character in the first place), actually becomes a playable character. Seeing as who she won't have herself as a support character, the developers decided that her support character would be none other than her very own mother.
As for the Price of the DLC, they say it'll be $1.99 on the PSN store, and 160 MSP in the Marketplace.

Rumors states two characters to join roster, (or just leftover code)
It seems that a hacker decided to look into the code for Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, and managed to find the names of one Frank West and Doctor Octopus. What could this mean? were Frank West and Doc Oc suppose to be in the overall roster, or will they appear as DLC in the future, or they simply wern't supposed to be there? I'll leave this story with an image of the screenshot of the code, as well as my sources.

Back with a few old vintage matches in third strike through the anniversary edition before the close of the original xbox live
With SFIITSOE coming in a few months, I've decided to bring up a few old vids that i had with fellow xbox live friend and youtube user Mixer Productions. in these vids (which were uploaded back in 2009, before Microsoft canceled the online services for the original xbox), I was player 1, and Mixer was player 2. We had some good times in these battles. Remember, as with all vids i show on this site, I did not upload these onto youtube. And now, on to the matches:

Apparently there are going to be a couple of Wal-Marts around the US that's going to be holding a special MvC3 Tournament soon.
Okay, So I went to my local Wal-Mart a couple of days ago, and I learned from an employee at the electronics department area that there will be a special tournament for Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 the day before release. anyone who enters will have a chance to score a special tournament editition of Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 (It's just the standard Ver., only with a much Cooler cover page, in my opinion.) people who also enters the tournament will also gain capcom community points (trying to remember how much per entree), as well as a bigger amount going for the grand prize winner. So, if you want to have a look, go to your local Wal-Mart (most likely supercenter), and see if they are doing it (I know the one I go to is hosting one of these tournaments. After all, I live right next to it.) hopefully I could get a photo of the special cover in the coming days.

some of my earliest battles from 2009 with some friends
Back in October of 2009, Me and a couple of my friends decided to have a recording session in Super Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix. It was a fun time for us, going all out with what characters we liked to use. for me, I pretty much used Chun-Li throughout the session. Also, after the second video, I pretty much was out of the set (as I had to meet up with some else during that time.) As with all the videos put here on gouki.com, I did not upload these. this set of videos were uploaded to youtube by youtube user The Legend of Renegade, who goes by the xbl gamertag MixerProductions. and now, on to the videoes:

My[Arthvader] preview for The King of Fighters XIII. An in-depth look at the most important reasons why Arthvader is hype for KOF13.
With The King of Fighters XIII coming this November, I'm soo hyped up for this game. I've been a fan of the series since 94, and from the looks of it, I'm sure it'll be one of the best one yet. Here's the trailer:
The story takes place after the event's of KoF XI. Ash Crimson has just recently managed to claim two of the three power held by the decedents of those who sealed the Orochi 1,800 years ago (Chizuru Kagura and Iori Yagami), while leaving Kyo Kusanagai to be his final victim. As Elisabeth Blanctorche, a former comrade of Ash, prepares to stop him, fighters from around the world received a letter with an invitation to another King of Fighters tournament tournament, in which it's be hosted by a person being simply labeled as "R". This person is Rose, the sponsor of the tournament, who is currently being controlled by "Those from the Past", the organization behind the two previously held tournaments that has been trying to break the seal of the Orochi.
Let's talk modes first. The game will have the following modes: Story, Practice, Challenge, Customize, Tutorial, Replay, Gallery, and Online.
In the Story mode, you can view events from the perspective of multiple characters, and it will be influenced by the decisions you make, as well as your battle results. when it comes to battling the CPU in the story mode, you'll be given random objectives, or Target Actions, which when completed, will give you bonus points, as well as some bonuses for the next round. Also, pre-battle dialog will be shown during the single player mode.
With the Tutorial mode, newcomers will be able to learn the basics of the game. the tournament sponsor Rose will explain the basic controls of each character, as well as the importance of each gauge.
The Challenge mode will consist of three modes within itself: Survival, where you fight for as long as you can, Time Attack, Where you pretty much just play through the game for the fastest time, and Trial, which you perform various combos with each character.
The Replay mode is where you can view replays of matches you saved after battles. I don't know yet if you can watch replays with friends yet.
The Gallery is, well, it's self explanatory. in this mode, you can view various pieces of art done by the staff.
Another neat feature for this game is the fact that you can customize the character's colors to whatever you want. Sure, at first, there won't be as many colors available at first, but as you keep playing the game, more colors will be available, allowing for unlimited customizations. the best part is, you can use those customizations in online play.
The next thing I'll mention is gameplay changes. First of all, the following gameplay mechanics from the previous game were removed for this game: the Critical Counter system, the the Clash system, and the dynamic, zooming camera. In the place of these mechanics, the following systems and changes has been added:
- The EX Mode: Players will be able to use powerful version if their moves for the cost of one meter for EX Desperation Moves, and two meters for EX Super Desperation Moves.
- The Triple Cancel: this mechanic allows players to unlimitedly cancel their character's moves. the Triple Cancel is dependent on the Hyper Drive Gauge.
- The Hyper Drive Gauge: A three-tier gauge which will gradually drain as player cancel the moves. Whenever the the gauge reaches the max, the player will then go into a state called "Hyper Drive Mode" in which players will be able to cancel unlimitedly for a short amount of time.
- Neo Max Desperation Move: whenever the player is in the "Hyper Drive Mode" while having at least three power stocks, they'll be able to pull off this powerful technique. Players can also link this move into a combo, in which you'll do a "Max Cancel".
All I have to say is this, the songs in this game are soo totally badass. Instead of having generic songs for the stages, we get back songs for each team. Not only that, each team's theme, in my opinion, sounds like it belongs with them. Listen to Team Japan's theme here, and see for yourself:
As you can see from the image above, you can tell that the game improves on the graphics. The game will feature a total of at least 8 new hand-drawn stages, while returning stages from the previous game will get a visual upgrade. each characters themselves will have at least 20 different colors to choose from, all of which looks really nice, while some characters might have head swaps (Raiden & Takuma, I'm looking at you), and if the twenty colors aren't enough, you can use your own customized colors (I explained customization mode in the gameplay section of the preview.)
Final Verdict: HYPED!!!
Even though the game won't be out just yet, I'd say BUY IT!!!!!
Also, pre-order this game to get a special 4-disk set consisting of KoF music spanning the whole franchise.
Before I go, here's some videoes of high level KoF XIII players (I found these on iplaywinner's youtube page):
