These auctions start at a penny because we want you guys to decide what these items are worth to you. We just need the money. lol. All the profits from these auctions help Gouki.com pay the bills. Thank you very much.
Check it out, it's an inflatable Mass Effect 3 OmniBlade. That's the coolest thing IMO. The DLC code is for nubfarm and the medal is okay. But the OmniBlade, you blow it up and wear it on your wrist and PWN your closest friend. Both actual items are great for any Mass Effect cosplayer too.Read full story...
Here's a look at what we'll be doing at PAX this year. Some great opportunities with Valve for CS:GO. TERA presentation & demo at En Masse Entertainment. I Got Next Screening, a Street Fighter Documentary. Very excited, we have never been to PAX. Jimah!
The major thing for us is Borderlands 2 and I've send 2K like 50+ emails and they have never responded. Steve Gibson from Gearbox has forwarded emails to them. The @2kgames Twitter account gave me her email, but says she has never received an email from me. #straightface So we're going there first thing Friday morning. I had to cancel my Bethesda appointment for this, so no matter what happens with the PR Jimmys of 2k, We're getting Borderlands 2 first and we're getting it good. Don't be a Jimmy!
**Some of these games I have no idea what I'm getting into. The most I could go off on some were just YouTube videos I've found. Tera sounds cool and yes I will come to your studio, to check it out. That sounds like fun. Skulls of Shogun is a RTS. SOLExodus, I don't know what that is. Hi-rez studios, cool. Prey 2 I saw at E3 and I'm interested to see the progress of this game. XCOM would be the last game that I'd really want to see where they are with it. Very exciting, but 2KNubfarm.

In case you missed it. I gave that chopper my most devestating move. I had to choose between my regular fireball or my normal dragon punch. Whatch what happens.

IGN shows off a trailer at PAX demonstrating and explaining several new game mechanics and changes.
I'm definitely looking forward to this reboot of Counter Strike. I think I'd rather play it on PC though because, if you didn't catch it, console players won't be able to set-up custom games.

Team Gouki paid a visit to En Masse Entertainment's Seattle HQ and got a first-hand look at TERA for the PC.
TERA, or The Exiled Realm of Arborea, is an MMORPG and En Masse wants you to put an "A" in front of that for Action. Team Gouki took a break from the madness of the PAX show floor to head over to En Masse Entertainment's HQ for a glimpse into what that means. First, let's get this out of the way, TERA has already been released in South Korea (home of developer Bluehole Studio) and is being localised for the N.A. and Euro markets.
As we arrived at En Masse, we were shown into the conference room and seated at computers with different class names labeled on each. As we were the first group in, we were given a choice as to what we wanted to play as. I chose the sorcerer, a high damage but low health "glass cannon" type. FnJimmy chose the archer, a ranged damage class. One of the guys from En Masse would play as the Mystic (healer) class to keep all of us n00bs alive for the demo. Typically, one of their staff would play as the tank as well, but we had a full room, so to maximize the available PCs another member of the gaming press was seated at the tank station.
There are a total of eight classes (to start) for TERA; two healers, two tanks, and four damage classes. You probably need at least one tank and one healer in your party if you want to do well against the tougher enemies or raids.
After we were given a brief overview of the game mechanics and story, we jumped right in to the game. What makes TERA an "Action" MMORPG is that you have to aim and move (and dodge) in real time. The fights are more Mass-Effect like, just with a bunch more options. I had opened up the menu to look at what my spells did, since the icons were unfamiliar, most of the others in the group had done the same or were playing around with the dodge mechanic in the empty hallway leading into the room full of monsters. Not FnJimmy. No, he had to go all LEEEROY JENKINNNNS!!! on us and rush into the action where he agro a bunch of monsters and drew them back into the narrow hallway where we were all standing. Actual quote from the En Masse staff: "That's not good, I'd be surprised if you survived this." Fuckin' Jimmy!
I stood rear guard and killed some of the monsters that were chasing FnJimmy down the hall while the rest of the group cleared the door so we could get into the large room we were supposed to be fighting in. We made it, barely. Now it was time for a boss fight, TERA allows you to combo chain your attacks together when they connect, I quickly learned that my standard attack (a fireball) could be chained off of the #4 spell on my keyboard (an electrical ball attack that was slow) and allow a follow-up ice bomb. These follow up combos were done by simply pressing the spacebar after your first move connected (provided your cross hairs were still on target) and increased in damage massively. I was taking off 11,000+ points of damage on the boss every time. Our tank player was good at keeping the boss's attention away from us weaker characters and the healer kept him alive and the rest of us buffed up. We dropped the boss without anyone dying. Sweet.
GoukiJones then subbed in for FnJimmy to get a taste of the archer, I kept playing. We went to fight another boss who had minions he would summon periodically. It was a fierce battle that took the remainder of our time, but we came out on top, again with zero deaths. First group to do that according to the En Masse staff, and we did it without their tank!
Honestly, TERA was a big surprise for me at PAX, because I'm not a huge MMO fan. Adding the "Action" to it made a huge difference, and I liked what I saw of this more than I did of SW:TOR (although this was the third show where I've seen TOR, I played it over 15 months ago at E3 2010, so maybe I'm just tired of looking at it, seriously release that shit already).
The folks at En Masse are putting a lot into the end-game of TERA as well, there will be elections and cross-server invasions (or defense depending on what side you're on I guess). I don't know how much of that I'll be into, PvP was never my thing on RPGs.
TERA is scheduled to be released in North America and Europe in Spring 2012.
Gameinformer has revealed their cover for September and it's great news. They will have 12 pages about the game.
My head just exploded.
" Gearbox is introducing new and more diverse environments, smarter and more powerful enemies, and an improved mission system capable of delivering a better story." Gameinformer
I picked up the first game thanks to the hype here on Gouki.com and I've loved it. It is one of the best shooters I've played. Getting to upgrade your character and collect loot brought in the rpg feel. And the story was delivered with comedy so it kept you going. I am so hyped to get info about the next game that I'll be looking for the issue and the websites to drop whatever they can.
What do you jimmies think? Hyped for this? Did you like the first one? What do you hope they add? Anything you want removed? Don't be a Jimmy let's here what you think.
Edit - here is the official link http://www.borderlands2.com/ They say we'll get a look at PAX Rrime 2011 and Gamescon this month.
"New York, NY – August 3, 2011 – 2K Games and Gearbox Software announced today that the sequel to the extravasplosive breakout hit, Borderlands™, is currently in development at world-renowned developer Gearbox Software.

Readers will find many game details inside the issue, including the first reveal of one of the several new character classes being introduced in Borderlands 2."
Believe it or not, I did not play this game at E3 or EVO. What is wrong with me? There's something about it I just don't like. Nnnnnnnnnnuab!
Of course I chose Kuma and Poison. A perfect Menage a trois in my humble opinion. I would have rather played this demo with 1 hand and my pants around my ankles. Double tap heavy to chain a tag out? Ok. I understood, but still perhaps made a mistake with that once or twice, but what a weird button config for that.
Kuma is slow and awkward has hell, I didn't like him. And of course BatRastered gives me no chance, he's at least played the game before. Spitting all over me with that stupid Yoshimitsu green spit. Poison is weird as well with her fireball whip thingy. I had no idea what was going. No idea how to do supers and I kept wasting my meter swapping out and doing EX type moves.
Just watch the video. Are you hype?
Then we all had the honor to watch FnJimmy go to work on some random nuab who challenged him at PAX. FnJimmy chose Michelle and Chun Li. What the fuck? The other guy has Ryu and some Tekken Jimmy I'm unaware of. FnJimmy finishes the match the only way he knows how, by turtling his ass off. What a Jimmy!

The room goes crazy as everybody gets a free copy of Borderlands 2... and also pizza.
We didn't think we were going to get into this panel as it started right after our interview with Jeramy Cooke. By the time we got to the theater, we had to wait in the standby line. We managed to get in though when they called for a group of three we were the first in the overflow line to jump for that!
Watch as Randy Pitchford does his best Oprah and gives everyone a great prize then makes the crowd recite an oath of thanks for the free gift. Everybody pulls the same "I state your name" joke too. Awesome...
Special Thanks to 2K Games, Jeramy Cooke, Steve Gibson, Gearbox Software & Randy Pitchford.

Halo: Reach to be patched with new balance, and an old friend!!
At PAX's Halo-Fest, 343 Industries announced that a title update will be heading to Halo: Reach, changing some of the balance of the games's weapons and armor abilities.
First up, Armor Lock:
It looks as if the Armor lock ability will be nerfed quite a bit. first of all, plasma grenades will no longer detach from the player if they use armor lock. This I feel should be necessary because This is one of the abilities that I hated to deal with the most. Also, The duration of armor lock will now be based on how much energy a player has instead of a set time, effectively diminishing it's usefulness.
Next up on the list: Active Camo:
All they are going to do is shorten the amount of time you are in Active Camo mode. I don't know if this could be a good thing, or a bad thing.
and now, other balance changes:
Players will no longer block another players sword with any other weapons except for another sword. To me, this makes if feel more like classic Halo mechanic, seeing as how in Halo 2 and Halo 3, you couldn't block the sword with anything but the sword.
Players will also be able to change their reticule's "bloom", allowing for increased accuracy during rapid firing. To be honest, I could welcome this inclusion.
A shield bleed-through effect will be included in the update, meaning that any damage that takes out the last portion of your shield can be carried over to your health.
The last update is for those who like the magnum in Combat Evolved. the magnum will get a boost in it's power, being one step closer to it's original power. This is one of the best things I've heard for reach in a long time. Sure, the magnum is good as it is now in Reach, but with this upcoming update, It's probably going to be the go to gun, perhaps more than the DMR.
The update will kick in starting in October.
Leave your comments in the bottom, and don't be a Jimmy!!
You want to play PC games on a laptop, but don't want to sacrifice true portability? Razer has the answer, but it will cost you...
Yeah, $2,800 is a little steep for a laptop these days. It is made of milled aluminum like a Mac Book Pro and has some insane specs:
- 2.8GHz Intel® Core™ i7 2640M Processor
- 8GB 1333MHz DDR3 Memory
- 17.3" LED Backlit Display (1920x1080)
- NVIDIA GeForce® GT 555M with NVIDIA® Optimus™ Technology
- 2GB Dedicated GDDR5 Video Memory
- Built-in HD Webcam
- Integrated 60Wh Battery
- 320GB 7200rpm SATA HDD
- Wireless Network 802.11 b/g/n Compatible
- 16.81" (Width) x 10.9" (Depth) x 0.88" (Height); 6.97lbs (Weight)
No word on how long that battery will last with all that power hungry hardware, but dang that's a sweet setup. The custom "switchblade" buttons that change based on the game your playing and the touchscreen/touchpad mouse are not really available anywhere else, so there's that. I still can't help but think that I could buy a Mac Book Pro plus a super high powered desktop for that much money though.
