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.

Something incredible has been in the works for JoJo's Bizarre Adventure fans!

Revealed recently at a hands on demo, the company Bandai Namco showed off a playable version of their JoJo’s Battle Royale Arcade setups.  Each arcade cabinet is modular for another cabinet to hook up to it.  So you could have your very own JoJo’s Battle Royale Arcade set up for 4-30 people!  Or you can fly out to Japan and play this in their arcades.  The first video is gameplay uploaded from the event from YouTube Channel: Akiba-Ninja.  Back to back wins!  Total domination!

In the video below gameplay from the event begins and with the spectator/commentator mode you get a nice tour of what the game is like and the different characters.  The fact that so much time and effort has gone into this Arcade Machine is incredible to me.  I definitely see it getting a port to consoles and PC.  Not because it’s JoJo’s, but because it’s a battle royale, there’s enough fanbase for that genre and then you add in JoJo’s name and it’s a no brainer.

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 ...

Katherine to be voiced by Michelle Ruff in "Catherine" game

By: iorilamia Mar 24, 2011 | 4 Comments

Check out who Katherine will be voiced by in the upcoming Atlus game "Catherine"

Katherine is the sophisticated intellectual girlfriend of Vincent. Her voice actress has finally been revealed , Michelle Ruff. You may know her as Rukia from Bleach, Kaori of Akira, or C.Viper from sf4 to name a few. I'm not familiar with all of her work, but for Katherine it seems like her voice should be a bit deeper and mature. Strangely enough I think Vipers Japanese voice is perfect for Katherine cheeky Leave your commnets below about Atlus's pick on Michelle Ruff, or who do you think would be better. Don't be a jimmy.

My Favorite Street Fighter Player, Tokido

By: starlordtitus Jun 4, 2011 | 7 Comments

An in-depth view as to why Tokido reigns as my favorite Street Fighter.

Tokido is a young but exceptionally accomplished player of numerous fighting games in Japan, but he is perahps best known for his adept use of Akuma in Super Street Fighter 4 as he is honored as the best Akuma player in the world. He is known to have even taught Austrailia's best, Toxy, a few extra techniques to really improve his game. As an Akuma player myself, I naturally have respect for Tokido as well as his game. His mix ups, mind games, spacing, and precise execution, have even granted him victories over Daigo himself.

 

But aside from being a grand player, Tokid also has a well placed personality. While Daigo is quiet and rarely speaks, Tokido is more alike to most of us, knowing he has skill but he doesn't rub it in, while at the same time picking moments to really rise in status in the community. We all remember one such moment in the SoCal Regionals tournament when Tokido finished off ClackeyD's Ibuki and set forth to become godlike.

 

In addition to having  a great sense of humor as well as having a good sense of grandeur (I totally would have done the same xD) Tokido also shares a good sense of socialism with the community, a quality more commonly shared by most of us that links Tokido to us, giving us connection and familiarity to a great player. He gives input back to the community that helps players to up their game with greater confidence to play Akuma. In this 2 part interview, it shows Tokido answering questions as well as you get a good idea of who Tokido is, his personality, as well as how one would be able to get along with him. He's basically like one of the guys, but he just happens to be an extremely good player. It's also interesting to see him give his opinion on other high level players!

 

In conclusion, I see Tokido as a Grand Master,  a very great player that gives back to his fellow players and apparently seems like a good person to be around. He is seems to be a great role model as well (no smoking guys haha) But as well,  he has a great sense of humility and humbleness. He doesn't absorb attention but only accepts  it, and that is what allows him to differ from players with conceited attitudes. Among his most humble and humerous moments, is an early match with the Japanese model female player Haruna Anno. Observe and enjoy :D

 

In the end, Tokido remains my favorite player as he continues to awe and inspire us all. To Tokido, Thank You for playing Super Street Fighter 4 Arcade Edition.

ALL ABOARD THE NON-EXSISTENT HYPE TRAIN

There is an absolute frenzy for these consoles right now. Why? I don’t know. I don’t want one. For me it’s about playing the games. I don’t need a Series X to play Cyberpunk. It’ll run fine on my Xbox-whatever-amount-of-terraflops-edition I have now.

They sold out instantly online last week, mostly because bot and scalpers were in overdrive trying to capitalize on what would probably be bad security on Microsoft and Sony’s websites. The price on eBay was immediately 4 or 5 times the amount of the purchase price. Neither is worth $500 right now, let alone $2k.

Goukijones, Batrasterd, and I take on Pete the Invincible using a glitch to our advantage.

On Wednesday, January 16, Goukijones, Batrasterd, and I went and took on the raid boss of Mr. Tourge's Campaign of Carnage, Pete the Invincible. During the course of this particular fight, though, we ended up getting Pete into a spot where he essentially got stuck, allowing us to defeat him without much issue.

Akuma - The man, The myth, The legend

By: blazemanx Jun 19, 2011 | 5 Comments

a look into the man we call akuma/gouki.

Akuma is one of the most feared fighters in all of gaming and with good reason. I still remember seeing him for the first time on the 3DO (remember that system?) dashing in out of the darkness to kill bison and challange you to fight. Ever since then akuma has been quite possibly the most deadly warrior in all of fighting game history and here is a look into the man, the myth, the legend.

Akuma (known Gouki in Japan) trained under Goutetsu along with his brother, Gouken. Goutetsu taught them Ansatsuken (Assassin Fist), which is a mixture of karate, judo, and koppo. As the brothers progressed under Goutetsu's teachings, a dispute arose on the true nature of Ansatsuken and the path to master it. Gouken, unable to accept the violent nature of Ansatsuken, left Goutetsu to begin his own dojo. Akuma continued Goutetsu's teachings and vowed to use Ansatsuken as it was intended.

In order to learn Shun Goku Satsu, Akuma embraced the principle of Satsui no Hadou or (The Surge of the Intent to Murder/Murderous Intent). Through Satsui no Hadou, Akuma was forced to give up any compassion he held towards other human beings. In addition, Akuma realized his limits as a martial artist could be expanded, and left Goutetsu's guidance to train alone on an island (Gokuento).  

His return marked the end for Goutetsu... Akuma demonstrated his strength by killing his former master with Shun Goku Satsu. Goutetsu fell with an inner joy, realizing his pupil was attempting to master Ansatsuken. Akuma removed the beaded necklace from Goutetsu's neck and placed it around his own. The following day Akuma challenged and fought his brother. With Gouken gaining the upper hand, Akuma was eventually struck down. Akuma requested death in defeat, however his brother was unable to kill his own kin. Akuma, sensing weakness, mocked Gouken and struck with Shun Goku Satsu. The dojo was filled with a burst of white light and Gouken was killed. Ken saw the flash as he was returning from the U.S. Martial Arts tournament. Rushing to the dojo to find it in shambles and his master dead, an enraged Ken ran into the surrounding woods searching for the killer. Akuma easily defeated Ken and disappeared. Gouken's other student Ryu soon learned of his master's death and began to search for Akuma.

Akuma first fought Ryu at his island, Gokuento, and discovered the potential within him. He destroyed the island and told Ryu to come back when he had embraced the killing intent. However, Ryu rejected it. Akuma now practices to be prepared for a battle with Ryu. He also killed Bison during the SF2 series, the only official result of that game.  

Akuma fights only to test his strength and his opponent's. This means that he will only fight opponents that will provide a challenge, hence his refusal to fight unworthy challengers under any circumstances. Akuma will only kill opponents who are as strong as he, which is why he stopped his fight with Gen after realizing that he was ill. While Akuma killed his brother and his teacher, he did so in the confines of the code of the warrior, where the field of battle does not distinguish between friend and foe. Akuma believes he committed no transgression whatsoever. Also, with the exception of Gouken and Goutetsu, Akuma usually only fights those who challenge him instead of picking fights.

"Akuma" means "Demon" in Japanese. The kanji on the back of his uniform is called "ten." It can mean "sky," "heaven," or "beyond human." Akuma also has a few alternate, more powerful incarnations of himself including: Shin Akuma, Cyber Akuma and Oni Akuma.

Akuma is one of the first Street Fighter characters to really say "evil," besides good old M. Bison of course. Akuma's moves are of course based off of Ken's & Ryu's, which makes sense considering the storyline. In the later of the series, the manner is which he performs his moves became more and more different from Ryu & Ken... cooler maybe? Heh heh. Well, if you didn't know, Akuma adds in a certain "badass factor" to pretty much anything he does. He is an all around badass karate dude, if not THE badass karate dude.

I loved Akuma's 2nd Impact/3rd Strike appearance & fighting style, but honestly his SF4 incarnation disappointed me a bit... he's a bit too "monstrous-looking" in that game and his super moves just don't have the same pop. I think Akuma has looked his best in 2D form. In any case, he's surely one of my all time favorite fighting game characters (and I know I'm not the only one). Finally, Akuma's appearance in MVC3 looks downright epic... potentially his best... incarnation... ever. 

Here is a little video I put together in tribute to akuma i hope you enjoy it.

So what do you think of Akuma? Let us know and don't be a jimmy.

Looks like you'll be able to use Catwoman at least part of the time in this game. Co-op anyone? -UPDATED- official source for trailer.

Note: This video isn't up on the official youtube page yet, so here's some jimmy ass rip of the gamespot version. Enjoy it while it's up. I'll post the official if Rocksteady/Warner ever get around to updating their youtube page.

Get hyped!

By: goukijones Sep 21 (2 days ago) | 2 Comments

I'm not sure anyone was expecting this so soon. But here it is... Final Fantasy XVI

Gotta admit, this preview caught me a little off guard. I had no idea Square was working on another FF right now,but when I found out it was the FFXIV guys working on it, that made sense. They have been real slow with new FFXIV content this year and now we know why.
