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.

Why Do I Love Fighters? Part II

By: ariscool24 Feb 2, 2011 | 9 Comments

This is a short story of why I should win the Marvel VS Capcom 3 Ultra Combo Giveaway. Well I think its short enjoy! ^_^

First of all, if you have not read my first story I suggest you click on the link below. 

http://gouki.com/Story/Details/why-do-i-love-fighters

  In my first story I told you guys I have a lot of reasons why I love fighters. Well only a clip and a few words can only do so much to tell this community how much I really feel about fighting games. So let me explain more of why I love fighters. Like most gamers out there I started gaming when I was about four years old. I really didn’t care for it at the time because all I had on my mind was a dream of becoming a Power ranger. And like all other four year olds, I played with lots of toys of course. I had friends but most of them lived to far, so staying at home was a no brainer for me. Now I do not remember how my older brother got his hands on a Sega Genesis so I’m just going to say it magically appeared to give this story some spice. The game I started off with on the Sega was Sonic the Hedgehog. Sonic really made me happy for how no one else in my family was able to get so far on the game. And by my brother being eight years older than me it felt that much sweeter. I could never beat the dang video game, which leads me to forget about game. Until one day my brother bought the most amazing, electrifying game, Street Fighter II. When I first saw Street Fighter II I was blown away by the graphics, sound, & music. But with all of that said, that’s not what attracted me to the game. What really caught my attention was that versus screen. The fact that someone instead of the computer was playing against me just gave me goose bumps that were thick and solid as a basketball. I was in my sanctuary playing SF2 on the Sega Genesis with a smile so big the Joker would be jealous. I remember crying because M. Bison was beating me every time I’d reach the last stage. But one day I managed to beat him and during that whole year I never stopped smiling. A few years past by and If I remember correctly the Playstation system released. I got the Playstation the same year of its release with demos and all. Now I was into other games like Crash Bandicoot and more demos because for some odd reason fighting games like to take a few years off. Whatever the case that didn’t keep me from running into one of the greatest collaborations of all time. My mother works in the school system, so she had a really good relationship with the principle who owned the school. One night we were invited to the principle house or should I say mansion. And as the lady showed us around her lovely house she thought I felt bored. So she told me to go on the other side of the house and walk up stairs and I’ll be pleased to what her son was doing. When I finally got to the room I saw the game that almost made my head explode, Marvel VS Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes. When I saw Wolverine fighting Ryu I was literally screaming out loud “Hey that’s Ryu from Street Fighter, that’s Wolverine from X-Men!” Everyone who were sitting down playing the game didn’t even get mad because they were just as hype as me. With the battle system moving so fast, I was blown away once again by gameplay. I wanted to spend the night but my mother had other plans. Seeing MvC for the first time reminded me how great fighting games are again. I started buying every fighting game I could get my hands on and also played at the local restaurants that had arcade cabinets. More years past as my love for fighters grew with games like Mvc2, Guilty Gear series, Capcom vs SNK series, Street Fighter Alpha series, and Bloody Roar series. Now remember these are fighting games so once again the hiatus for the genre hit big time which lasted for almost a decade. The Playstation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii were the new babies. Games like Call of Duty and Halo was all we heard. Soul Caliber released and at the time felt really fresh, but it still didn’t feel that void. I hear some fighting game fans called it the dark ages and the feeling was just that “dark”.

 

  Street Fighter IV released and it put a smile back on my face bringing back the technicality of fighters to the so called dead genre. Other game companies started to catch on to the revival of fighting games like Blazeblue and Tekken 6. Even upgraded versions of the heavy popular SFIV A.K.A vanilla noticed the trend it set and decided to make Super Street Fighter 4. The funny thing about all this was the fact that my friends doubted me on how well fighting games would do on the next gen consoles. Now most of my friends play fighters more than any other video game genre. In the middle of all this and after a decade of demand Capcom announces Marvel VS Capcom 3 Fate of Two Worlds. I was so excited for this game simply because I already knew one of my favorite Capcom character was going to make it on there. Dante was all I wanted when it came to this sequel. Heck, Capcom could have said Marvel VS Devil May Cry and that would have sold me there. With the internet blowing up with pictures and videos it was only a matter of time before I get my hands on the game. I never knew I it would be as soon as October, 28 2010. I was lucky enough to live in one of the cities where Capcom would be hosting Fight Club. Fight Club is basically a get together like a night club but with a preview of a video game they’re promoting. I was dead set on going to that event no matter what. I’m currently in college and I had a test early that same day. I made sure I studied up and was ready to go that same day right after class. I met up with my friends and we drove straight downtown to the Atlanta metro area. When we got there we couldn’t find the location or at least the spot where it was being hosted because a train was oddly blocking the parking space. We quickly found a parking space and climbed over the train to find our place in line for the event. To be honest, I felt like a rebel climbing over the train which made the hype meter for this event rise. When we finally got into the event I couldn’t believe my eyes. I was thinking here I am a guy who grew up playing this game and now I’m at a night event that’s promoting it, Godlike! I didn’t just play the game at the event ether I also made the most of my night there using my other talent dancing. I also took some pictures as proof of this Fight Club event. My love for fighters after that night just blew the top off. I’m so happy to see how much fighters have evolved yet stay true to the fans that’s been with them from day one. I hope I win this contest to show other people who are not into fighting games show how strong this community is. Heck, I hope this inspires people who are not into video games at all. The gaming community is growing very fast and I believe the whole world should witness this.

In this video you might catch me dancing at the Capcom Fight Club I attended in Atlanta, Georgia.

In this picture its me next to the lovely cosplayer Yaya Han.

Quick Look Of My UD-CPS2 Board

By: guano Jul 16, 2014 | 0 Comments

A quick look at my consolized CPS-2 A arcade board.

Here is a a look at my consolized CPS-2 arcade board, allowing me to play old Capcom arcade games on my TV! Enjoy!

We will be playing the CPS-2 fighters on stream at twitch.tv/goukijones on Thursday, July 17th at 7:00 PM. Thanks!

First and foremost I'd like to congratulate Infinite Bits for putting together an enjoyable convention experience on the first try. The 2009 Miami Video Game Convention

First and foremost I'd like to congratulate Infinite Bits for putting together an enjoyable convention experience on the first try.  If you were one of the hundreds of gamers who took the time to go to the Doubletree Miami Airport Mart Convention Center for the event which ran from Friday Oct 23 thru Sunday Oct 25 you probably were like me and pleasantly surprised.  Hopefully you didn't arrive expecting Infinite Bits to hand you an experience akin to that of the legendary E3.  If you did ,then you were probably pissed.  The 99% of Miami area gamers who arrived with an open mind and itchy joystick thumbs however, were pleased. 

The convention had a nice structure and balance to it.  There was something there for all gamers;  old school classics for home and arcade, handhelds, table top games( think dungeon and dragons), as well as the latest home console titans.  The mix of vendors were a little thin, but considering this was the very first convention sponsored by Infinite Bits all was easily understandable.  Very hard to get adequate vendors when no one really has an idea of how successful the convention would be.I especially liked the arts and crafts that some artists presented....they were outstanding!  Some of the video game vendors had unreasonable prices though...even for companies that are local and very small. 

The convention was chock full of gamers dressed as their favorite game and anime characters.  Gave the whole convention a lively vive.  It took me and Jimmy about an hour just to walk around and guess what characters some of these folks were trying to be!  That was fun! The tournaments rocked! There were tournaments for Gears of War , Halo 1, Halo 3, Street Fighter IV, and Madden 2010 as well as a host of other games.  My only hope is next year they do a better job with scheduling the tournaments.  Too many were going on at the same time, not enough equipment to have the process go quickly,(the brackets for street fighter were crazy long!), and definetly not enough space for fans(and the press like Gouki.com) to watch.

All in all I enjoyed myself...and if you didn't bother to go you lost out!  Hopefully Infinite Bits can learn from the few mistakes they made this year and do it again next year bigger and better!  I'll be there for sure!  Check out my Iphone videos Jimmys!!!!!  Remember these videos are from my iphone on the go live at the convention Jimmy so don't expect HD..but expect me to keep it real! Enjoy!!!

It's Las Vegas so anything is possible. I'm hoping we can get a solid Arcade Scene in Vegas. I need my SSF4 Arcade Edition Fix!

Cinderkin found this game, Full House Poker tucked away in the corner of the Microsoft Booth at CES 2011. What the hell is this game?

Microsoft's booth was pretty quiet game wise. Halo Reach was there, something else I didn't really care about and can't even remember now. I just know I was extremely bored and wasn't there for really long. I couldn't wait to get out. Then I saw Cinderkin up agianst the back wall jammed between two televisions, squatting, looking through some narrow passage. A few minutes later when he caught up to me I asked him WTF?! He told me, he found this game called Full House Poker for your Xbox 360 Avatar. My reply ... Nubfarm. Here's the video.

Ghostbusters arcade style shooter is on the horizon and it's lookin' pretty sweet. Check out, Ray Parker Jr.! Smash TV style.

So that last Ghostbusters game may not gone over too well. Don't worry, the franchise can not be held in any containment unit. This new game for Xbox Live and PSN looks more like a classic Smash TV or the more recent Zombie top-down shooter styles out there. Ghostbusters is funny and if the humor and voice acting is done well, this could be fun to play. Once. Honestly ...

Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime

From YouTube:

Check out Atari's new game, Ghostbusters: Sanctum of Slime Available Mar 23 for direct download on Xbox LIVE Marketplace. Join the Ghostbusters team in the battle against paranormal activity and defend New York City.

The Nuki Story : It's all about Daigo

By: iorilamia Jan 12, 2011 | 3 Comments

Daigo...the could have been Pro Mahjong player...

We hear a lot of stories about peoples past, but not as much info as this one. Nuki tells the story about his early years in gaming, how he came across Daigo, his impresions of him , how they met in other games and became rivals (ultimately bros) and Daigos secret obsession with Player Cards. I won't spoil too much so check out the two videos below. They are originally from a nico video, but cccloner999 has been taking parts of them and fully translating it to us in english with captions, also in the description box he has left notes for some things that may not make sense, like Arcade names and such. He has part 1 and part 2 done (ending in great suspense haha) still waiting on the epic part 3. Enjoy guys. And remember to turn the CAPTIONS on ;)

BlazBlue: Chrono Phantasma Reveal Trailer

By: Arthvader Aug 17, 2012 | 4 Comments

Arc System Works reveals the next chapter in the BlazBlue saga.

I'm glad to see that they're making another Blazblue game.

I like the new characters that are going to be added. Azrel looks like a total badass. Bullet looks as if she can kick ass. As for Amane, I don't know what to say about him, other than his fighting style looks interesting.

I also like how some of the returning cast is going to have some changes in moves, as well as appearance (Noel, in Particular).

 

Currently slated for Arcades in Winter 2012, and for PS3. No word yet on the 360 ver.
