Princess Luna goes to EVO2k in Las Pegasus

By: Daisymare Jul 8, 2012 | 2 Comments

So our Goddess of the night Princess Luna was at EVO 2012 to check out the fighting demos and matches.

More than just 1 interesting game will be shown off in the EVO 2012 indie games showcase. Aztec, Super Comboman, Nidhogg, DiveKick and more. You Jimmys know I really want to play the DiveKick

DiveKick at EVO 2012!!! This game was first unveiled at UFGT8 earlier this year and I can't believe nobody has published this game on the iPhone. Looking for an exclusive with Keits, shout out to my boy Keits, WHAT UP JIMMY?! :)

DIVEKICK distils the essence of the fighting genre into its most simple form, using parody and humor to make players comfortable in a fast-paced, rage-inducing game.

Just a few days after Seth Killian's departure from Capcom, word comes that he will be working with Sony Santa Monica studios and representing Playstation All-Stars Battle Royal at EVO later this week.

Just a few days ago we wrote about Seth Killian's departure from Capcom and speculated about what he might be up to at EVO this year. Well wonder no more!

Seth has been hired as "the lead game designer for the external group at the Sony’s Santa Monica Studio". What is the external group? In Seth's own words:

"The external group works with Sony’s outside studios — teams like Queasy Games (Sound Shapes), Fun Bits Interactive (Escape Plan), thatgamecompany (Flower, Journey), and… SuperBot Entertainment, makers of PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale!"

Seth seems plenty excited about PS All-Stars and still being part of EVO:

"You don’t have to take my word for it, however–we’ll be taking All-Stars on the road and making sure you guys have plenty of opportunities to go hands-on, starting with PlayStation’s first official presence at EVO this weekend. More details soon."

Yeah Seth, "details soon"... EVO is only 4 days away ya Jimmy! (I know, I couldn't believe that either.) We'll be sure to catch up with Seth when the Gouki.com crew visits EVO 2012 in Las Vegas this weekend.

MarkMan from Mad Catz drops an EPIC instagram

By: goukijones Jun 21, 2012 | 2 Comments

New fight stick to debut at EVO 2012. Exclusive EVO graphics. More info coming to an FGC event near you!

Well it looks like you might have a reason to spend 200 bucks on a new fight stick at EVO. No word on how limited this stick will be. In fact no word at all, MarkMan just dangling this in front of us on the Twitter. I'm hoping it's one of those VS sticks like the Street Fighter X Tekken stick. I really want one of those, but I don't want the SFxT graphics on it. This EVO limited edition version sounds pimpin'!

The video ends with a hand shake and bow from Champ. Keeping it classy!

Champ was on a tear all night and was feeling himself way early on as seen in this video above.

I was lucky enough to get this match on tape. I bumped into SpeedBrkr and he let me know he had Marn in the first round.

More Grand Championship Fights from EVO 2012

More Awesomeness from EVO 2012 Grand Finals.

In case you missed these Fights in the Grand Finals, here's  your chance to see four of them (Genexsis83 put up 3 of the remaining fights in an earlier story.):

EVO's Mr. Wizard announces infinite combos will be allowed in Ultimate Marvel VS Capcom 3 at the big tournament. Videos show more than 1 character has one. Will there be more to come?

TAC = Team Ariel Combo.

TAC Infinite combos will be legal at EVO according to this Tweet from EVO director Mr. Wizard. 

Here's what it looks like.

Can you even see it? I certainly don't have a clue what is happening. Phoenix tags Magneto back in and Magneto can start his infinite. Apparently there's a moment where you can escape if you have the right character.

This is something that isn't a glitch. This is something that requires technique and specific characters to do. 

Justin Wong said: "That is cheap cause Magneto has one too, so lots of characters might have it." - That quote is from EventHubs

Low and behold ...

Marvel is the Touch of Death. Shout out to UltraChenTV for that one liner. The winner of EVO could be the Jimmy who has something like this mastered with whatever else they've already mastered in the realm of cheese with Ultimate. Marvel is so full of cheese. FnJimmy had a great line last night while were playing and Hsien-ko kinda froze up for a second and he said "See the computer can't even handle your cheesy bullshit anymore." We're going to see a lot of attempts at this infinite thing, only the best will move forward. If an Infinite Combo wins the tournament and if the winner of the tournament is Japanese, they will probably riot. U.S.A.! U.S.A.! 

Where is Filipino Champs take on this?

Marvel is a lot of the same, even though all of the characters are very different and have unique styles. Core gameplay features like TACs, Supers, Launching are all the same for all the characters. Now some might be completely different features, like not all characters can fly. I think this TAC infinite thing falls under most characters in the game can do something like this. Whether or not the human player can execute it or not, we'll see at EVO.

Well what do you think? Ban or not ban? Ban glitches, not skill, that's my take. Vote, Comment and Share. Don't be a Jimmy!

EVO 2012 Grand Finals will NOT BE FREE to watch live. *UPDATED*

By: goukijones May 9, 2012 | 5 Comments | Updated: May 10, 2012

For the first time ever, EVO will charge a fee to get into the main ballroom on the last day for grand finals.

If you're coming to Las Vegas for EVO just to watch, you're gonna need an extra $50 to watch the grand finals on Sunday. Don't worry there's a free room with the live stream on a big screen. It's not that big of a deal right? You get a free t-shirt too. Plus if you're entered into any of the tournaments, you will get a badge, so that's cool. 

Here are the main changes to the registration.

  • On Sunday, the day of all the tournament finals, we will require an attendee badge to enter the main ballroom. To purchase an attendee badge, head to evo.shoryuken.com.  If you’re already registered to compete at Evo, you will get a badge, so don’t worry.
  • If you’re not playing in any of the tournaments and want to get into the main ballroom on Sunday, you still need to buy an attendee pass.  With your pass you’ll also get an Evo T-Shirt.
  • We are selling only enough badges to meet the capacity of the ballroom.  Once we are sold out, that’s it.
  • Since this is new information, we are extending the early-bird registration price for one week, until May 15th.
  • We’re requiring sponsors with booths to pack it up Saturday night so we can make as much space as possible for spectators, and to give the finalists the respect and focus their skills deserve.
  • On Sunday we will book an extra room for those in attendance without badges, where they can watch the stream together on a big screen, for free.  But if you want to watch in the main room, we need you to purchase a badge

More of me just rambling about EVO from day 2. Hope you enjoy my nonsense.

I'm sitting down to write this a day later, I was there until almost 1am last night. Yesterday was another epic day at EVO.

We arrived around 11:30am and met up with Vicko, who was doing his mods in the Mad Catz booth. This Jimmy is pro status in the modding community. I'd let him touch my stick anytime. He was chillin' with Fanatiq back there probably fixing his paid, rumor is Fanatiq pounds one of the bumpers and is always wrecking the sensor. Shout out to pad players, I love it!

Vicko's pool play was at 12 Noon and he was going to represent for Gouki.com and wear our shirt while he played. Much love for that, I really appreciate that kind of support. We filmed all of his matches and I will post them on Gouki later this week. Unfortunately he didn't make it out of his pool, but he put up a helluva a fight and was very exciting to watch. I want to scream and cheer for him, but I was extremely focused on capturing his matches. I shot it off-screen and I tried my best to keep the screen in frame.

Just as Vicko finished his match, another Las Vegas local Ruin was on the main stage fighting Mame Spider. I captured this on film as well, but I'm not sure if Ruin would like me to share it. Probably not. Ruin was defeated by Mame spider in a great match. I was really proud to see Las Vegas on the main stage.

Lunch time. Trying to stand perfectly still and capture these matches was taking a toll on my frail white ass. We trekked over the Imperial Palace and ate a place called Quesadilla. They served Mexican food, if you couldn't figure that out. They also had $3 Coronas, which was way better than the $7 we were paying for beers the the day before. I had 3 chicken tacos for lunch, they were excellent. I wish I remembered the name of the hot sauce, that was the best part.

When we got back to EVO I had to pee like 3 times. Fuck me. At least my ass was dripping or even worse, bleeding. Speaking of a bleeding ass, I got to finally see My Little Pony - Fighting is Magic. For the longest time I didn't even this think this game was real. Well I finally saw it yesterday and I got some off-screen footage which I'll be posting later this week. The game was running in a 4x3 screen on a PC. It looked a little dated graphically, but from what I can tell the fighting seem to have combos and wall bounces like fighting games. I didn't get a change to play it because the Bronies playing would not share the stick. The most disgusting one of the bunch was explaining to me how the game worked. He had long dirty fingernails. That is an instant classification of disgusting. Unacceptable don't be a Jimmy! Anyway, the buttons are l, m, h, and Magic. That's about all the info I got out of it, since I couldn't play and there was nobody there to talk to about the game.

Right now live in the Gouki.com offices we're watching the Mortal Kombat top 8. I'm going to have a shot in accompany to my beer.

Fuck yeah! Feeling good now, back to my half assed memory of yesterday. So we split with BatRastered and I stayed at EVO with PrettyMiwa and Guano. I had no idea where Guano was so I was just snapping shot of the venue. I spoke to Keits for a moment, introduced myself, asked for any advice for getting a mjor tournament organized here in Las Vegas and we spoke briefly about DiveKick. Keits was super awesome. Ran over and talked to Markman realy quick. Markman is the guy in charge of getting the EVO fightsticks lost in customs. lol. Shout out to Markman.

EVO was really packed at this point and Ultmiate was coming down the quarterfinals and a lot of people were already packing into the fron to watch. Not long before it was standing room only. I got to see a match on SFxT with Mike Ross and Combofiend. Mike Ross looked awesome with his Marduk, but the girl in front of us couldn't stand still and I was bobbing and weeving just trying to watch the match.

Then I hear Guano shouting from a distance to come and sit down to watch the Marvel quarter finals. Yo we sat there for like 5 hours watching the best players in the country in some of the most exciting matches and unique teams I've ever seen. Filipino Champ is on a tear right now and I'd loved to see that Modok in the finals against his Phoenix. We got out of there around 12:30. Another great day at EVO. Now I'm gonna chill and watch the finals from home. Watching Mortal Kombat now, this game is really good, watching high level play.
