2012 Jimmy Gems - The nominees

By: BatRastered Jan 2, 2013 | 11 Comments

Who will win the coveted Jimmy seal of approval? Here are the nominees...

Worst Game:

The Witcher 2

GoukiJones - I hated this game, by the time I made it to the second area, I just couldn't take it anymore. I know there was a big PC following for the first 1, but the combat didn't work too well on the XBOX. The story was bleh & the level designs weren't that great, because it's not long into playing that you realize the areas are no bigger that a large Halo map with only so many enemies.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown

GoukiJones - I hate this game. Even tho I played it for 56 hours, I just wanted to see how far I could push myself. I wanted to see just how terrible it can get. A spaceship strong enough to crash to the earth, but isn't strong enough to take a round from a human pistol is not good game design. Huge disappointment.

Dragon's Dogma

GoukiJones - I might catch some slack for this 1. I only played this game for 8 hours or so & hated every second of it. While going online & trying to figure out what I was doing wrong, I came across so many reviews about why this game sucks & why you shouldn't play. Well I didn't, thanks Raychul & Angry Joe

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning

GoukiJones - First of all the colors, I hated them. Jimmy don’t like World of Warcraft colors. The combat was dull & the questing was a lot of fetching & backtracking. Not something I was interested in after just playing Fallout New Vegas & other RPG’s around that time. I remember loving the KoA at E3 when I saw, but when I actually sat down to play I realized it was all lies.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon city

GoukiJones - 1 of the worst games of all time easy. Whenever I see video of us playing this game I really wonder WTF was it about & I can’t believe we wasted anytime playing. Capcom just don’t give a fuck about the RE franchise anymore. Fuck this game.

BatRastered - just throwing bullets at enemies who don’t seem to take any damage and have no health bars, then running out of ammo, finally just rushing down the objectives in a suicide run that turns out was the way you were supposed to do it (what?). This game was a confusing mess.

 

Best Arcade:

Mark of the Ninja

GoukiJones - 1 of the most clever games I played this & probably 1 of the best Ninja games of all time. Fun to play, there’s multiple way to take down each enemy or you can try to sneak by everyone. There are some great line of sight gameplay elements that make MotN a big time winner with me.

Double Dragon Neon

GoukiJones - As a remake of an old arcade DDN adds new levels & better action. There’s also an RPG element where you can switch out special abilities as you collect them thru the game. This is great for 2 players.

 

Best Game Not Released in 2012:

Final Fantasy XII

GoukiJones - Another 80 hours on this game, no problem. Great combat, great characters & voice acting, this might be my favorite Final Fantasy of all time.

Halo Wars

GoukiJones - 810 hours. 1 of the best strategy games on XBOX. Please make a Halo Wars 2. Thank you.

Super Street Fighter IV AE

GoukiJones - I’m opposite of BatRastered on this. Even tho I’m not playing SSF4 that much, I’m still playing it now & focusing on it more than ever.

BatRastered - I’m not playing this as much as in the past, but the 2012 patch really evened things out. At the grand finals for the 25th anniversary tournament, there were 6 different characters represented in the top 8. Balance!

Final Fantasy Tactics
BatRastered - I played this on PSN this year for $10. I played the hell out of this and enjoyed every second of it. The job system is still my favorite FF mechanic ever.

 

Glitchiest Game: (aka the Q&ehhh award)

XCOM: Enemy Unknown

GoukiJones - This game was so broken, I was just playing to see WTF would go wrong next. Aliens could shoot thru walls, that was the worst & totally unfair.
BatRastered - Seriously, just watching GoukiJones play this for 5 minutes produced no fewer than 3 actual laugh-out-loud moments.

Borderlands 2
BatRastered - The sequel to the game with the most invisible walls doesn’t disappoint. There were some serious problems this time though, people had their bad ass ranks reset and certain characters would freeze when nearing a save point. Much of this has been patched, but the latest patch broke all the damage bonuses for shotguns. There’s even a glitch to allow you to store unlimited items in the bank.

 

Milk Carton Award:

Agent

GoukiJones - Yeah WTF happened here? Is this still a real game?
BatRastered - I don’t even remember what this was about.

XCOM (the other one)

GoukiJones - Please tell me this version is still coming out. I was looking forward to this Mass Effect style alien hunter shooter.
BatRastered - I was never impressed by what I saw of this at E3, but the silence about this game after Enemy Unknown was announced is deafening.

The Last Guardian

GoukiJones - LOL this game. Canceled, not canceled. Secretly in development in some underground bunker by a now NEW set of Jimmys. The third set.
BatRastered - The creator of the game left the company, but is still “consulting” on this project. LOL.

FF vs XIII

GoukiJones - Here’s a game we saw game play from 2 years ago. Square Enix hasn’t said shit since, but claims it’s still in development.

DiveKick

GoukiJones - You could have made a ton of money on this game month ago if you had just released 2 characters, 2 buttons like you originally stated that was about. Now WTF is it & what are you doing to it?
BatRastered - This was hilarious when the trailer dropped and the demo at UFGT. It was still pretty funny at EVO, but then they started to add characters and moves and now it’s gonna be a real fighting game with balance and moves and … WTF? I don’t care anymore. Could’ve made thousands of dollars as an iPhone/android/indie Xbox game.

Twitch.tv Xbox app

GoukiJones - I need this. Why is this so hard.
BatRastered - The IE on Xbox doesn’t do flash, so no way to watch Twitch. I still have to connect my laptop to the TV. What year is this?

 

What Physics?

Sleeping Dogs

GoukiJones - When you get banned at E3 because in the demo you show me the guy steering the car isn’t turning the wheel or even touching the wheel to be clear, I’m not going to play.
BatRastered - When you shoot out a tire on a care it launches like a rocket. We LOL’ed. Then it landed and continued on it’s way like nothing happened. We almost got thrown out of the room.

XCOM: Enemy Unknown

GoukiJones - Read any of my other comments about this game on this page. Read my review & watch my gameplay videos. Seriously, this game is a mess.

 

Rubber Bullet Award:

Halo 4

BatRastered: Sure, if you had a DMR or sniper, you could kill the Prometheans in 4 or 5 shots, but if you got stuck with a suppressor (basically an SMG) or AR, you will be unloading full clips into their face before they teleport away and make you do it again to kill them. And that was on normal difficulty.

RE: ORC

GoukiJones - On the hardest difficulty level there isn’t more enemies or even smarter enemies. They just take more bullets to shoot. We were playing with 4 people & still shooting the same nuab with entire clips. Terrible.
BatRastered - From my review: “On the highest difficulty setting, the unarmored heads of the military foes can take a half a dozen shots from an assault rifle before finally blowing up in a shower of blood. Many of the boss battles feature big baddies (such as the Nemesis and Tyrants) but you can't really tell if you're doing any damage to them (there's no life meters and they don't really react to the bullet hits) which makes the encounters feel tedious. Worse, there are encounters where you are not able to injure your opponent, you are simply supposed to advance on them until a cut scene triggers, but you don't know that so you sit there and fire at them for half an hour before someone in your party gets tired of it and goes all LEROY JENKINS and charges them. Ugh.”

 

Best Character:

Ultimate Badass God-liath Goon (Bordlerands 2)

GoukiJones - Nothing excited me more about Borderlands 2 than hunting this monster. 1 he is hilarious when he gets pissed off & starts chasing. Special bonus it’s the same voice actor from Dragon Ball Z, Mr Satan. So it’s pretty funny to hear Hercule behind you screaming he’s gonna gouge your eyeballs out.

BatRastered - this goes for any raging Goliath variant (once you pop the helmet off of a goliath, they go crazy). Some of the best dialog in the game just being screamed at you as he chases you down, pummelling all other enemies who dare get in his way. Awesome!

Death (Darksiders II)

GoukiJones - Death is funnier than he looks although I’m not sure he’s trying to be. This character has great 1 liners & he looks dope. Perfect brother for War.

Handsome Jack (Borderlands 2)

BatRastered - Jack is a villain that both fits in with the Borderlands style humor and is evil enough to make you want to kill him. That’s a tough trick to pull off, but Jack does it with style.

 

Best Game:

Halo 4

GoukiJones - By far the best Halo shooting experience in years. Something else about this Halo is that it has brought back a lot of old players from the serious & my friends list always has somebody who want to play. I've logged over 180 on Halo 4 so far. Unfortunately the story was garbage, the last level was probably the worst level in Halo history & there is no final boss fight. WTF?

Borderlands 2

GoukiJones - Great cam to play with friends & compete on who has the best gear. It's also nice to share & trade gear Jimmy. I already have over 200 hours into Borderlands 2 & when the level cap is increased I'm sure I'll go up closer to 300.

Mass Effect 3

GoukiJones - Any game I play thru 2-3 times back to back is going to get a nod from me. Mass Effect is great fun. The multiplayer isn't bad either, especially since you can play on 2 XBOXs with 1 copy of ME3. Stolen!

BatRastered - Had a surprisingly good time in the multiplayer (yeah, partially because the 2 disk format allowed us to play together with only one copy of the game). The story was great, the ending was a little weird and abrupt, but EA/Bioware put out a patch that made more sense. All the multiplayer map packs were free. Awesome game, awesome support.

Worst Deal for Gamers Jimmy Gems nominees

By: goukijones Dec 13, 2010 | 14 Comments

Do not pay full price for video games. These are the biggest rip offs for gamers this year.

Move controllers

You realize that some of these games require 2 of the same ball controller, like the boxing. I know, so what, right? Add it up. Move basic kit that comes with a game, the controller and the eye toy. $100. The Navigation controller if you want to play whatever games need this. $30. Then you need a second Move controller. $50. And then finally if you want to play that stupid boxing game, you need the game. $50. Total = Broke ass.


Bioshock 2 DLC

This is when every gamer knew we were totally being lied to by our publishers.


Kinect $50 extension cord

Wow really Microsoft?! That's just wrong. I hate cables. They are a Rip-off.


Super Street Fighter IV costumes

I like the costumes. Releasing a bunch of packs slowly and then a final pack at the end with all of them in it for a cheaper price is just wrong. Let me pay that price up front and as they release just let me DL them. Jimmy ass!


Online play codes

This bullshit is alienated the other half of the gaming community. The part of the community that buys games used or gets them from friends long after the game comes out. The part of the community that is excited to play with me, a game that I'm still playing because I enjoy it so much. Online play codes are the biggest bullshit.


Xbox Live price increase

Xbox Live annual cost was raised from $50 to $60. Unbelievable. I never thought we would see an increase. Most titles run on dedicated servers. And don't get me started on Online play codes fucking gamers in the ass.

Microsoft says it's for Kinect and that we'll have access to ESPN 3. I don't have a kinect and I don't have ANY need to watch ESPN 3. There should be an option for gamers who strictly just want to play online. ie Halo, COD, NFSHP. I don't need access to anything else on Xbox Live except my friends.

There were some classic disappointments this year. Never a good thing.

Brink

GoukiJones says: Wow! I couldn't have been more disappointed in myself after playing this game. I said it 2 years ago at E3 when I first played this game. "It felt stiff." Oh and it certainly was. 

BatRastered says: A game that goes from one of GoukiJones' most hyped games to us returning un-opened copies to Amazon in the space of a few hours has to be nominated. The movement was supposed to differentiate this game, I knew it was in trouble when the Crysis 2 came out and did the same thing (vaulting, etc).

Halo CE

GoukiJones says: WTF? Are you trying to kill off the series? First of all the co-op should have been 4 players. Second, why couldn't a multiplayer disc be included like with ODST. I wasn't interested in this at all and this is coming from a guy who has over 185 hours of gameplay in the first 2 months.

BatRastered says: The HD remastering of the main game was good, but fracturing the multiplayer by not including the full-on multiplayer experience was a bad idea. Still, playing with the old pistol again was a blast, so I don't feel too strongly about this one.

Rage

GoukiJones says: Yeah I knew this was a bust when I played this at E3 this year. Not falling for the Brink relapse here Jimmy. 

BatRastered says: Oh, Bethesda... WTF? Can we ever trust you with a shooter again? Nope.

L.A. Noire

GoukiJones says: I seen enough here...
FnJimmy L.A. Noire GVR

BatRastered says: This game practically plays itself. Sure you can get a better score or a better reaction from the other characters if you do things right, but doing things wrong doesn't really impede your progress in anyway, you still move on to the next case. Better than your average point and click style mystery solver, but not anywhere near what we were expecting from a Rockstar game.

Mortal Kombat

GoukiJones says: Played this 1 time. There was nothing exciting about it or anything that kept me interesting right aasawzzzzzzzzzzzz

BatRastered says: The players at EVO don't even bother with the fatalities and such, making this game just as boring to watch as to play. Also, I don't want to buy an MK stick.

Best Deal for Gamers Jimmy Gems nominees

By: goukijones Dec 13, 2010 | 11 Comments

Save that money Jimmy! Best coupons, shipping rates and free dlc.

Free Halo Reach forge maps added to matchmaking

I did not believe my eyes when I saw to free user created maps on the playlist that first night. Unfortunately they will all be the same color as that Forge World. Who cares, it's free and actually enjoy one of those maps.


Kmart gaming coupons

As long as you were buying your games from Kmart every week you were only paying about $42 for each game. With almost every new release purchase you got a $20 coupon on a future game. Deals Jimmy.


Amazon $0.99 release date delivery

If don't like to leave the house like we do then this is the best deal for you. Imagine the gas you would save not driving to the closet ghetto errrrrr Kmart to buy your games every week. Let the Jimmy ass UPS man bring it to your door. Amazon also rivaled Kmart with $20 coupons with every new release you buy.

Summer of Arcade rebates

Bought all 5 you got 1200 points back.

Bought 3 of them you got 400 points back.

In the house we had 4 of the five. We did not have Hydro Thunder, because we are not nubfarm. Any type of rebate in this situation is good. I wish I hadn't bought MNC or the Castlevania, would have saved me 2400 points!

What are the best games to play with friends? The nominees are...

Battlefield 3

BatRastered says: The maps are huge, the shooting is spot on, and the environments are destructible. What a FPS multiplayer experience should be. I just wish they'd dumb down the helicopter flight controls so a Jimmy like me could fly them.

GoukiJones says: This is probably the best shooting experience I've ever played. The threat of realism in the game is amazing. Just last night I was standing on some stairs and a tank shot out the floor below me, the stairs and myself collapsed. Also the water tower fell on me last night. Vintage. Platoon up Jimmy!

Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3

BatRastered says: I don't like this game, don't vote for it.

GoukiJones says: Just because BatRastered doesn't understand how to play it for whatever reason doesn't mean you should hate too. I've spent a ton of hours in Marvel 3 and Ultimate and I love it. Plus I destroy Jimmy every time. Great fun, passes the time away quickly. 

Gears of War 3

BatRastered says: An awesome co-op campaign experience, an improved horde mode that allows you to build defenses, and a new "beast mode" that allows you to play as the other side of the horde mode battle. There's also the standard death match and objective modes. FnJimmy sucks at all of the above. Proof:

GoukiJones says: Yes, this is exactly what it was like for three nights trying to beat the Gears of War 3 with FnJimmy. He had no clue how to perimeter check during the final boss and it took us 2 nights. But I loved every second of it. 

Portal 2

BatRastered says: The addition of a co-op campaign was a pleasant surprise for Portal 2. They even included a way to communicate your intentions with gestures if you didn't have a mic. Good times.

GoukiJones says: I barely remember this. BatRastered and I railed this in like 2 nights. Puzzle games are no good for me because once I solve the puzzle all challenges are gone. Now if this turned into some portal death match against Batty then I'm all for it.

By: BatRastered Dec 13, 2010 | 11 Comments

What game had the best music in 2010? Our nominees are here, voice your opinion below.

Halo Reach

I think the music from the Halo games is up there with the Star Wars movie sound tracks. Reach continues this tradition. Here's the menu theme... This is just the fuckin menu...

   

Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2  

It's Star Wars music... What do you expect? Of course it's good.

Red Dead Redemption  

It's like I'm playing a Sergio Leone movie.

Fable III  

Another game with a cinematic soundtrack. You gotta love the orchestra Jimmy!

Mass Effect 2  

The map screen music still gives chills.

 

Winners will be announced December 29th. Don't forget to vote for your favorite games in our catalog and leave a comment below!

Gran Turismo 5

2011 Jimmy Gems: and the winners are...

By: BatRastered Jan 5, 2012 | 4 Comments

Gouki.com gives you its favorite games of 2011, plus your votes.

Best PS3 Exclusive

inFAMOUS 2

BatRastered says: I played the first inFAMOUS because I got it for free on the PSN when they came back from the hacking debacle. It was probably the most fun I've had on the PS3 since I've owned one. Naturally when inFAMOUS 2 was released I had to play it. While it didn't leave the same impression on me that the original did, I still loved it. It's too bad the user generated content didn't live up to the hype.

GoukiJones says: I didn't play it. Well I actually I did, I beat the shit out of it at CES 2010. Exclusive! After that I wasn't really interested. I watched Batty play it a little and I still wasn't interested.

User's Choice: DC Universe Online

Most Disappointing

Brink

GoukiJones says: Wow! I couldn't have been more disappointed in myself after playing this game. I said it 2 years ago at E3 when I first played this game. "It felt stiff." Oh and it certainly was. 

BatRastered says: A game that goes from one of GoukiJones' most hyped games to us returning un-opened copies to Amazon in the space of a few hours has to be nominated.
