Pro gamer FnJimmy goes hands-on with Skyward Sword in the Nintendo booth. Watch as he destroys the first demo and has time for another.
FnJimmy and I headed to the Nintendo booth to play some Zelda Skyward Sword. You can choose the bird riding level, a dungeon level, or a boss battle. They only give you a 10 minute demo to keep the lines moving and FnJimmy had played a little bit of the combat last year, so I encouraged him to take on the bird riding.
Most of the people in front of us had tried the bird riding too, none of them seemed able to beat it in the 10 minutes allowed. Noobs... give that Wii mote to FnJimmy and watch him do his best Fred Savage from that one movie from the 80's...
Uhhh... No, the other one...
Yeah, he may be a n00b at FPS games, but FnJimmy was born with a Nintendo controller in his hand. Okay... back to reality... Watch FnJimmy rail the birds so fast he still has time to do the dungeon level. "Good job, Jimmy!"
FnJimmy had a huge grin on his face after that and wouldn't let us leave the Nintendo booth until I had recorded his takes. So here is the offical FnJimmy hands-on impressions of The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword.
The Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword releases this holiday season for the Nintendo Wii.

E3 2011 Exclusive: Team Gouki checked out Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon. While BatRastered grills the PR Jimmy, GoukiJones raips on screen. Later FnJimmy offers his take as well. Don't be a Jimmy!
Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon is a cheap game Jimmy, $40 bucks out the gate. We might have a serious deal of fun here. 3 player online co-op, 4 different suits to use and upgrade, tons of bugs and aliens to shoot and destructible environments. Developed by Vicious Cycle Software out of North Carolina, EDF could be their best game yet. Of course "could be" is the key word there since I haven't actually played the final product. I am hype.
I had fun while playing the demo. You can check out my killin' bugs and dropping buildings in the video below, while BatRastered asks as many questions as he can.
E3 2011 Exclusive Interview and Gameplay
Where has Jack, from MadWorld, gone to?
He's kicking some ass and taking some names! This time, he's not alone!
Are you going to get in the way of a man with TWO chainsaws for a hand?
Just watched the Nintendo press conference for the wii u. I love the wii u but hate that they are still using the Nintendo wii as the console it runs off of. Or is the wii-u a totally new console with improved graphics and 1080p outputs?
- Appearantly I was hasty with my take on the video from the conference. My brother-in-law pointed out this tech spec list that claims to be from Nintendo. I hope our guys at the conference got a copy of this spec sheet to confirm it. But it shows that the wii u is actually a NEW CONSOLE with updated graphics and 1080p outputs. Here is the list of specs
- It also seems there are some games that are displaying PS3 game play visual levels. I'm not 100% sure just how well they compare at this point since I'm going by what I see on the videos. Actual game play could be less pretty if these early builds turn out to be final builds. I am completely blown away by the Aliens trailer, the new wii-u UI and controller will make that game jump off the screen and completely freak you out like the movie did.
Nintendo has released a specs sheet for its upcoming system, Wii U.
Text direct from Nintendo:
Size: Approximately 1.8 inches tall, 6.8 inches wide and 10.5 inches long.
New Controller: The new controller incorporates a 6.2-inch, 16:9 touch screen and traditional button controls, including two analog Circle Pads. This combination removes the traditional barriers between games, players and the TV by creating a second window into the video game world. The rechargeable controller includes a Power button, Home button, +Control Pad, A/B/X/Y buttons, L/R buttons and ZL/ZR buttons. It includes a built-in accelerometer and gyroscope, rumble feature, camera, a microphone, stereo speakers, a sensor strip and a stylus.
Other Controls: Up to four Wii Remote (or Wii Remote Plus) controllers can be connected at once.
The new console supports all Wii controllers and input devices, including the
Nunchuk controller, Classic Controller, Classic Controller Pro and Wii Balance
Media: A single self-loading media bay will play 12-centimeter proprietary high-density
optical discs for the new console, as well as 12-centimeter Wii optical discs.
Video Output: Supports 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 480p and 480i. Compatible cables include HDMI,
component, S-video and composite.
Audio Output: Uses AV Multi Out connector. Six-channel PCM linear output through HDMI.
Storage: The console will have internal flash memory, as well as the option to expand its
memory using either an SD memory card or an external USB hard disk drive.
CPU: IBM Power-based multi-core microprocessor.
Other: Four USB 2.0 connector slots are included. The new console is backward compatible
with Wii games and Wii accessories.
Here's some pictures I selected to show you guys what E3 looks like as you're running from meeting to meeting. Check the Jimmy laying down in the middle of the walk way. Nubfarm.
Enjoy the pictures. Leave me some comments please. Thanks.

Darksiders II has been announced finally. The original is a Gouki.com editors choice and we're thrilled to hear about the sequel or are we?
The original Darksiders was like a grown up Zelda I always wanted. It's one of my favorite games. Excellent story, graphics and most importanly gameplay. Check out my Darksiders review and FnJimmy's first ever Golden Video Review Darksiders.
When the first game ended, I swear there was a shot of War's brothers coming to earth. This was the lead in for the sequel. Going back to my take on this game being like a grown up Zelda I was really hoping to see something like that gameboy game, The 4 Links. Where you have to team up and do the puzzles in the dungeons. Darksiders set this up perfectly. However the nubs over at DToid are talkin' this nonsense.
"Darksiders II is aiming to be a deeper experience, with NPC interaction and a detailed loot system. Seems they'll be bringing in a lot more RPG elements this time around, which I certainly won't say no to."
That's not what I wanted to hear, but it DToid, those Jimmys probrably talking out of their ass. I don't mind loot systems and weapon and armor upgrades, but I was happy with the way Darksiders was set up. Either, this game is totally on my list to check out next week at E3.Read full story...

seriously it's a game? Where the fuck is the game play then?
The video looks good and I've enjoyed the character class reveals they have given us. But are we buying a movie or a game? Why at E3 would you not show how good the game plays? The pre E3 videos were better. But it is a Star Wars game so it would sell like crazy with a black box without a picture because of the army of fanboys out there. But not even a release date, what a load of crap. Come on guys.
Not the E3 video
I'll add the E3 video when they upload it.
Here it is, not the official one yet.
How much longer do you think they will drag this out? Will we be seeing it again at E3 next year? I want it to hurry up and get on the PC so they can port it to a console for me.

A video taken from E3, showing Hwo, Sagat and character select screen. Also other videos from Capcom Unity.
Hwoarang is my favorite Tekken character so when they did his teaser reveal, my hype exploded (also since Juri is my main, the possibility of having both of them is delightful!). http://www.youtube.com/user/GamingTrendVideos2 has been awesome enough to get a vid of him in action a long with Sagat, enjoy.
So what do you think? It's cool that they implemented his Flamingo Stance. Unfortunately the guy playing just got...destroyed and didn'[t do much of anything cool. But Hwo looks like hes having really good pokes in this game and his jump properties look just like Juri's , lol.
Sagat on the other hand is looking like Sagat. The King lives on ;)
(Yea I know there are 2 videos. At my friend's house, no matter what browser I choose this keeps happening)
UPDATE: http://www.youtube.com/user/CapcomUnityVideos Uploaded 2 new videos with awesome team combos, inlcuding Sagat, Julia, Cammy and Hwo.
Exclusive Pictures from behind closed doors. Gouki.com got the world famous treatment from 2K Games at E3 2011 and one of the games I saw demod live right in my face was XCOM. Completely different from last year. This is my new Brink!
I certainly had the privilege to see XCOM in the 2K booth this year at E3. Last year XCOM was a FPS action game, that looked like it didn't have much to offer. This year, what I saw was a completely different game. My session was hosted by a developer or producer of the game, I can't remember his name, I nubbed it up and didn't write it down or get a card from him. He reminded of Kramer, from Seinfeld. He was great. I understand that knowing his name would have helped out a lot more with this next quote.
"The game is now a lot more like Final Fantasy Tactics" He explained in reference to the party system.
I spoke to -again I can't find his name, I apologize- He told me the game may even let you send out your party to do side missions and they will level up and bring back stuff like in Final Fantasy Tactics. My mind was blown.
During the actual playable demo, that a developer was playing behind him on the Xbox 360. They showed a lot combat and explained how the looting of the aliens worked. XCOM is squad based now and very strategic, this aspect shown, reminded me of Mass Effect. You could hack alien tech and use it against them. Some alien tech completely blew buildings apart while playing. If you don't use alien tech right away in combat, you can take it back to the lab for more long term benefits. These were all very cool ideas that I was hearing. The game now has a release date of March 6th 2012, so this is the new official GoukiJones hype game. Don't worry XCOM will not be another Brink.
These are my actual notes while I watched the live demo:
- Different demo from last year
- RPG agent elements added
- Similar to FFTactics party
- Team setup and choose the mission
- Aliens look way cooler. Humanoid
- Squad controls
- Capture enemies and use the powers now or later
- Xbox Demo
- All Aliens can be tech
- Complete 180
This is your base, where you suit your guys up and level up their gear.

Demon's Souls was a huge success by From Software. Looking to capitalize on this new "Extreme Difficulty Genre" Dark Souls is a spiritual successor. Now you can hunt down other people online as the Black Knight with a new gameplay feature. E3 2011
Well I hated Demon's Souls Jimmy there's no denying that. Back then though I had no idea exactly what the game was. I played it, shit I reviewed it. (Demon’s Souls is Stupid’s Shits) Rei Puerto talks it up all the time, not sure if he ever beat it though. One guy I saw beat it, had that famous speed run on YouTube. I'm calling tool assisted, but it is unconfirmed.
This video is from E3 2011, some nubfarm is playing the Dark Knight. The first parts are just to get you warmed up. The game looks and sounds amazing. Now that I know what Dark Souls is and how it's supposed to be played, I still don't want to play it. But for you Jimmys who are into this stuff, check out this Exclusive E3 2011 Dark Souls Black Kinight Gameplay Off Screen Video.
Try not to laugh. I played the first FF13 all the way to disc 3 and I got to the "open world" part. Then I put it on the shelf and eventually mailed it to Blazemanx.
I couldn't help, but laugh a little bit when this trailer ended. I haven an appointment to see this game at E3 2011. Hopefuly I don't get banned from the Square Enix booth. Again, I'll try any Final Fantasy once.
