Cancels, delays & PSN problems due to the disasters in Japan

By: iorilamia Mar 14, 2011 | 13 Comments

As expected, some games will have complications after the Tsunami and Earthquake. - UPDATED-

Most of you may know what happened in Japan, it was truly horrifying and continues to leave many of problems. Ofcourse this leads to news about what happens to some games.

DISASTER REPORT 4 by Irem for the PS3 was cancelled after the events in Japan. The game actually starts with a massive earthquake and you must help people out. Ofcourse this would be a extremely touchy subject to anyone ; too soon. With that being said, the company simply cancelled the game without reason and apologized to fans awaiting.

 

MOTORSTORM 3 Japan release has gone from the 17nth of this month to TBA. "Various Circumstances" are the reason of delay. But ontop of that, Sony's repair and information center has been halted because some services work from Miyagi Prefecture which was damaged in the Earthquake. PSN will still work, but minor issues may occur like content updates not showing or problems connecting.

FINAL FANTASY XI AND XIV are unavailable this week. Square Enix shut the services down to reduce power consumption due to many energy shortages. Because of the stop, April service for final Fantasy XI will be FREE. After the first week of suspension, more info will be posted on whether they will continue having it offline or not for XXXXX ammount of time.

METAL GEAR SOLID ONLINE is also being suspended, by Konami. This is another attempt to cut back on power. The restart date is still not known for the servers.

YAKUZA 4 was supposed to be released March 17. Sega announced that it is now TBA for " various reasons"

Many wishes to Japan on getting back on their feet, it's going to take a lot, but it will happen :) Leave your comments and thoughts below.

Final Fantasy XIV Gouki Guild beta day 1

By: goukijones Sep 3, 2010 | 4 Comments

Finally got a beta code and got onto a server today before they all filled up. Apparently I chose the wrong job class. Good thing this is a beta TEST. Jimmy!

Pre-order now and become a part of the Gouki Guild.

I played the Final Fantasy XIV beta today for 3-4 hours. So there definitely isn't a time like of an hour or two like I had read earlier this week. Unfortunately, I may have started off with the wrong job class. I choose to be an alchemist. That sounds cool right. I figured I can just get a sword or a bow and go out to fight things. I'll just weak in those areas of fighting since my main skill was alchemy. Well, my only offensive weapon I has was "throw stone."

So the plan now is to try again, this time specifically choosing disciple of war and picking an archer. I don't want to do magic right away. I really enjoy crafting, that why I choose alchemy first. That and I figured potions would be good turn over for making money. The leve system is no big deal at all, I was partied with Estrada and were doing all of his leve. Again my only issue is that I did 1 damage and would get railed by the fungi.

Final Fantasy XIV DOES run on my pc. I turned the shadows off and a few other things to see what the effects are. Didn't seem to make much of a difference. My fan was maxed out and the screen seemed to be dropping frame rates. Oh and I couldn't figure out how to play full screen. 

I can tell though, even screwing up and not really doing anything for the last couple of hours in Final Fantasy XIV, I will be addicted. Without a doubt.

Gouki Guild beta

Hodrum planet.

Gradania City. *Will change with second character tomorrow.

Every thing you need to know about your pre-order.

Square thinks we'll be creating our characters for hours. I just wanna start beating little bunnies over the head ASAP!

So in this video Square-enix shows off how in-depth the character columniation is in Final Fantasy XIV. I don't really care too much for what my character LOOKS like. I'm pretty sure, no matter what he will be feared by all. Ha ha ha!

PC version first and the Playstation 3 later on. Don't miss out on this FF Fans!!!

No time to screw around here. Well actually the site is down for me at the time of writing this. You gotta jump through a few hoops to get a log in, but it's easy. I don't care I wanna play I'm crazy for this shit Jimmy!

Here's the link ...

2010 video games I want blog

By: goukijones Jan 3, 2010 | 9 Comments

Here's a list of video games I want and don't want to play in 2010. It's going to be an amazing year. Number 1 in the world baby King of Jimmys!

Mass Effect 2 Its so close I can't believe it. I love Mass Effect 1. The guns the music the flying the ship through the space and being a fuckin' asshole to everyone in the galaxy. Can't wait to play part 2! Mass Effect 2 giveaway

Bioshock 2 is right behind ME2. If you got vacation days coming, use them! Fuck the multiplayer Jimmy whining about multiplayer suck. Bioshock was so much fun just by itself. I will play the multiplayer though, carrying the kicking and screaming little sister around as "the flag" is cool and looks awesome.

Final Fantasy XIII Fuck yeah Jimmy. I loved XII. I spent more than 365 total days in real life playing Final Fantasy XI and that's just ridiculous. So I will at least try XIII. XIV?!? GET THE FUCK OUT OF HERE. A new online Final Fantasy will come out this year too. I'm done with everything.

ModNation Racers I'm playing with the Beta now and absolutely loving it. It's a kart racer with the exact same controls of Mario Kart 64. Every race gives you that same exact feeling of fast-paced close finishes racing. Oh yeah!

Final Fantasy XIV Drunken hands on

By: goukijones Jun 26, 2010 | 5 Comments

FNJimmy and I got a little private time with Final Fantasy XIV in 3D, with my best friend Jack Daniels.

FNJimmy and I got into the private hands on room of Final Fantasy XIV. I played it in 3D and let me just say it looks absolutely amazing. The problem with 3D gaming of course (and this isn’t the only time you’re going to hear me say this) I don’t want to have a $5000 dollar set up to play it. The glasses and 3D on screen were not abrasive at all. Although I don’t know how I would feel after playing Final Fantasy for XIV umpteen hours.

As far as the actual gameplay of Final Fantasy XIV it was just like Final Fantasy XI, I’m afraid that this game may just be a graphical update. I ran through the town and saw the shops and few NPC’s all very familiar to anyone that has played FFXI. When I got out into the field with a group to fight some enemies, again felt just like FFXI.

Final Fantasy XIV or Star Wars The Old Republic? The variables here would be release dates, friends online, monthly pricing, and system. I don’t know when either game is coming out for sure, but I’ll be giving both a try when they are released. I think my friends online are gonna be split. Whoever has the cheaper service is just gonna receive bonus points.  As far as systems go, I know I’ll be starting either one on the PC so I guess that does matter. Here’s a short clip of FNJimmy and myself hands on with Jack Daniels errrrrrrr Final Fantasy XIV.

This is a video that has been circulating the net about the difference between the alpha and beta versions of Final Fantasy XIV. Hello?! WTF? When the game is actually released,  we won’t be playing either version, so who cares? The graphics are nice though.

This is the North American E3 2010 Trailer. Makes my nipples hard Jimmy.

FFXIV ARR Titan: Lord Of Crags Battle Guide

By: Zero2990 Sep 9, 2013 | 2 Comments

My 2nd FFXIV boss guide, Titan: Lord of crags Lv34

So we've all been having fun in the last couple of weeks and apart from the odd tough dungeon nothing really poised as a real threat.. Until now!

This has easily been my favourite fight so far as its enabled me to play a real support role and oversee the battle.
I struggled with Titan for a good few hours until I found a decent party through Duty Finder. Most players will be under equipped for the battle so make sure you have all up to date gear for Lv32-34

FFXIV ARR Ifrit: Lord Of Inferno Battle Guide

By: Zero2990 Sep 7, 2013 | 1 Comments | Updated: Sep 12, 2013

A short Ifrit guide describing all of his moves and how to deal with them.

If you're new to MMO's or Final Fantasy this guide will breakdown the first boss you take on in game, Ifrit. Although he is the first major battle he does prove quite a challenge for beginners and will easily punish you if your party is reckless.

After a lengthy cut scene you will be thrown into the arena to take on the fire demon himself.
Bare in mind that as he is the first boss and your team mates may not understand the mechanics of the battles yet and may make the odd mistake, its always good to go over the battle plan before the fight, people will thank you for it.
