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...
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!
And just for the Jimmys...

Have you ever wanted to battle it out as some of the biggest names in the Square Enix roster?
Final Fantasy has been an icon for many gamers world wide, we have put countless hours into the games, and we still come back for more. Dissidia 012 is a prequel to the previous PSP game, and it will let you fight as your favorite characters.
Need I say more?
Ok how about this.
and I guess this wouldn't hurt..
The game will be here March 22, so what do you need to know?
The roster? Ok. The Original cast, Warrior of Light (Final Fantasy), Firion (FF2), Onion Knight (FF3), Cecil Harvey (FF4), Bartz Klauser (FF5), Terra Branford (FF6), Cloud Strife (FF7), Squall Leonhart (FF8), Zidane Tribal (FF9), Tidus (FF10), Shantotto (FF11), Cosmos (Dissidia), Garland (Final Fantasy), The Emporer (FF2), Cloud of Darkness (FF3), Golbez (FF4), Exdeath (FF5), Kefka Palazzo (FF6), Sephiroth (FF7), Ultimecia (FF8), Kuja (FF9), Jecht (FF10), Gabranth (FF12), Chaos (Final Fantasy). Pretty good right?
But then you add a few new ones, Kain Highwind (FF4), Gilgamesh (FF5), Tifa Lockhart (FF7), Laguna Loire (FF8), Yuna (FF10), Prishe (FF11), Vaan (FF12), Lighning (FF13) and how about add Aerith as a support character if you play the demo.
You get a Fighter an a Single Player Story mode, so it's got plenty to offer.
I wish it was on the PS3, but the PSP will do just fine.
Will you be picking it up? Who will you play as first? Don't be a Jimmy.

Time to get in the ring
Round one I tried out the Ultimate Warrior and he felt a little clunky, but it could just be me. The power was there and getting my first KO by finisher was pretty cool. But the control seems pretty simple and I'm seeing no reason to get the Fight Pad unless you just want one for the hell of it.
But there are two sides to this fight.
When I switch over to rey Mysterio for the second match I could see a difference. He's fast, fluid, and gets some air. His grapples are true to his style with them looking more like counters. I'm impressed.
But as much fun as I'm having and looking forward to playing as other legends and trying all the match types, I've got to say rent it. Unless you are a real wrestling fan, then get off your candy ass and get the game.
It's nice to know I'm not the only one who wants Darkstalkers 4.
I remember the first time I saw the Darkstalkers select screen as a pre-teen boy.
I had to try it. A fighting game with monsters and it played like Street Fighter. My quarters were gone and I couldn't wait to play again.
So of course I had to have it when it hit the Playstaion. Demitri Maximoff, Jon Talbain, Victor von Gerdenheim, Lord Raptor, Morrigan Aensland, Anakaris, Felicia, Oboro Bishamon, Rikuo and Sasquatch were now at the house.
And the countless blisters that followed were no suprise.
And then the Saturn got round two, but this time I had a pair of joysticks and finally had the arcade feel at home. And the roster grew, we got Donovan Baine and Hsien-Ko plus this time around Huitzil and Pyron were playable.
Enter four more new characters. Jedah, Lilith, Q-Bee and B. B. Hood were brought in now we had 18 playable characters.
Then with the exception of of PSP port we had nothing for the main series. The Vs Capcom games kept hope alive that we would see a new game but it never hapened. And now rumors start about a possible follow up. But "I would like to make," and "we are making," aren't the same.
I'ld love to see a new game and with fighters making a comeback I don't think it's out of the question, but Capcom needs to see the support from the fans. But instead of whining and pleading lets give it some real thought.
What would you like to see in number 4? Some new charactes? Great idea, what kind? On-line play? To keep up with all the rest of the competion they almost have to. Anything else? Let's hear it.
Don't be a Jimmy! You want it? Hate the idea? Speak your mind (even if you're wrong) what are you waiting for?
Ever want to play with the developers?
Playstation 3 owners will have the chance to play with the developers Saturday the 12th (tomorrow) from 12pm until 3pm Pacific Time or 3pm to 6pm on the East Coast. It will be in Anarchy Mode so this is your chance to see how you compare.
Also for all you FPS fans Call of Duty Black Ops in now the greatest selling game in U.S. history with 13.7 million copies in 4 months. That is on all systems and PC combined.
Don't be a Jimmy! Are you playing? Did you contribute to COD making history? Do you just flat out hate FPS? Speak your mind.

You got just a couple seconds of it in the video they showed at the Sony press conference, but that was enough to make me want to know more.
Yet another game where your character starts with amnesia. She goes by the name Kat and you'll get plenty of comic book styled cut scenes that you flip through on the touch screen. And she is into some hand to hand combat, giving you combos and special moves you can use to fight through this world in. You also get to defy gravity and control where you land by tilting the Vita.
As a new IP with a heavy anime influence the game has my attention. I'm really looking forward to learning more about this game as the details surface. And if I find a way to get myself a Vita this game has a great chance at joining my collection.
And here is a short video of the game.
He says he got the yellow light of doom, but with PSN down I'm sure a few of you can enjoy this.
I suggest hitting mute as this guy is going to offend some of you possibly.
Desert Eagle tears the guts out of the PS3, but when he goes for an automatic you can tell he plays Call of Duty online.
Looks like Playstation Plus gets a head start
PS3 users with playstation plus will be able to save 150 megabytes to the Sony servers.

This is just another step forward for our current sytems and may be a preview of what to expect on the next generation. By itself this isn't that big of a deal, but it just shows how fast the companies are implementing new technology as it presents itself. What would you like to see make it on the systems next? We already have web browsing, netflix, and countless other things.
Don't be a Jimmy, let's hear some ideas.
But it's glitchy as hell. An error has occurred (80710D36) get used to seeing it for now.
Source 2 I'm on it right now
Sony has got the store back up and running (like crap though) and I'm not seeing anyone else talking about it yet. For once insomnia turned out to be a good thing. The page above says that out thanks for putting up with this shit pack isn't in effect yet, "it's in the final stages of testing". WTF? As you go through the store expect a lot of error messages, but backing out once or twice will fix it, yes Sony is still screwing you. The money I added to my wallet was there and ready so hopefully this will be the case for the rest of you. There are a few demos up, and some wallpapers, plus some other crap. It's all listed on that site up there. And on a quick look through Sonic 2 and Abe's Exodus are both free for Playstation Plus members, I'm hoping I can still get these when they activate our free month of the service. It would be nice to play through them again, and I'ld be done way before the trial is done.
So there you have it Jimmys, the PSN store has been resurected and it like any other zombie has some issues. Are you glad it's back? Ready to give Sony your hard earned money again? Pissed that you have to wait longer to get you welcome back stuff? Will you be able to trust Sony again?

BlazBlue character set to get dirty?
Noel Vermillion may be getting ready to show some skin.
Mai Shiranui will be there also.
It's a special kind of strategy RPG being brought to Japan by Namco Bandai, for some reason I don't see it making it to the US. If you notice that the game has a panic button you might understand why we won't get it over here.
This is another game adaptation of the anime Queen's Blade. http://fierceanime.com/Story/Details/queens-blade--swords--ta
And here is a video for the game.

Id Software has brought us a decent horror FPS, but the timing could have been better.
If you are a fan of horror based first person shooters Rage is a game you should check out, when you get the time. FPS games have flooded the market all year long but right now we have Battlefield 3 and Call of Duty Modern Warfare 4 right around the corner it's hard to justify buying another shooter at the moment. And if you look at the pile of recent releases there is a good chance you have picked up a few other fps recently. I personally could wait until Borderlands 2 comes out to buy another shooter.
The driving bits are kind of fun and if you are on the four wheeler you can get launched off by running into something, that was great for a laugh. But you do have some races you must do to get through the story and some give you weapons. This is also available for some multiplayer action online.
I only played for a few hours but the weapons didn't seem to have much variety (Borderlands has spoiled me) you start with a pistol, later you pick up a shotgun, a sniper rifle, an assault rifle you can buy, and this wicked crossbow. You can upgrade the weapons a little, but from the looks of it they are just minor tweaks. With the pistol you also get a couple choices of ammo, so later in the game you could get more choices.
Overall the game was pretty fun, the story feel a little generic, you are a survivor that was lost in time who wakes up to a world in turmoil. It's not bad, just not original. But in most cases if you are playing a fps it's because you want to shoot shit and there is plenty of that. You do get some boss fights mixed in to give you some variety.
So my official verdict is Rent It, but if they could have slipped it into a gap between games it could have got a buy it.
