State of Decay Gameplay Video Released.

By: Cinderkin Apr 15, 2013 | 3 Comments

Undead Labs has released a gameplay video of State of Decay! Check it out!

Undead Labs upcoming zombie filled survival third person action game State of Decay has finally got a nice new gameplay video to check out. This time we have a release date of June, but no price has been confirmed for this XBLA title.

This game looks 10x better than the recent Walking Dead FPS title that came out last month. I am actually interested in seeing if this game can do well enough to become a full retail franchise. Who knows?

What do you think of State of Decay? Is this something you'd play? Tell us what you think in the comments. Don't be a Jimmy!

Arcadecraft or priapism for Goukijones.

By: dragonkiss83 Sep 3, 2012 | 1 Comments

I may have just found the best building sim yet.

Arvadecraft is being developed by Firebase Industries an indie company I've never heard of.  The idea that drives the game is the chance to build your own arcade.  You'll be dealing with machines breaking and your customers getting tired of games.

I couldn't find any release date for it, just that it is being made for the PC and XBLA download.  

Will any of you be interested in this?

Capcom has announced a release date for the somewhat highly anticipated Marvel vs Capcom Origins.

Marvel vs Capcom: Origins is a new title for PS3 and Xbox 360 which features two games; Marvel Super Heroes and Marvel vs Capcom. Today Capcom has announced the official release date for September 25th and 26th on PSN and XBLA respectiivly. They also released some new screen shots to check out.

 

The game will offer GGPO for its online netcode with 8 player lobbies and spectator support. Comes loaded with HD filters, replay functions and a challenge system similar to Street Fighter 3: 3rd Strike Online Edition.

Marvel vs Capcom: Origins will cost $14.99 or 1200 MSP. Are you looking forward to this game? Have any favorite MvC moments? Tell us what you think in the comments. Don't be a Jimmy!

Arthvader Reviews: Dungeon Fighter Live

By: Arthvader Jul 26, 2012 | 3 Comments

Is this xbla port of the popular PC MMO arcade-style beat-em'-up worth getting? Find out in this review.

I'm back with another review. This time around, I'm going to be reviewing an XBLA game that recently arrived in the Marketplace. Will this game be worth the 800 MSP? Let's find out in this review.

But first, here's the trailer for the game:

Read full story...

An overall good puzzler with creative use of physics, marred by one major, glaring flaw.

Quantum Conundrum is a puzzle game available on Xbox Live, PSN, and Steam for $15. The game has an impressive pedigree with former Portal 2 creator, Kim Swift on board. The basic mechanics involve swapping the current dimension for one that is "fluffy" allowing the child protagonist to pick up formerly heavy objects, like safes. You can also swap to the "heavy" dimension to make things heavier (to weigh down a switch for instance), the "slow" dimension which allows you to slow down time, and finally the "reverse gravity" dimension, which does exactly what its name implies. The combination of these abilities allows you to pull off some cool tricks and creative solutions, for instance you can turn a safe fluffy, throw it across a gap, slow motion it so you can jump on top of it, then turn reverse gravity on and off as you ride the safe up and down in a wave like motion across a huge gap.

This all sounds like fun, but where the game breaks down is the "jumping on top of it" part. Most of the items you have to jump on are either small, like the safes, or irregularly shaped like a couch and the jumping is fairly imprecise, as it tends to be in all first person games. When the game first gives you the slow-mo ability, it asks you to jump across a gap filled with slowly moving, falling, furniture. I must've died 20-30 times doing this, not because there was a puzzle to solve, but because I just couldn't nail the sequence of jumps.

The puzzles themselves are pretty easy, I only had one stump me for any period of time, as I needed to disable slo-mo mid jump to get the platform where I needed it and then re-enable. A technique that wasn't really ever introduced.

Overall, the game was a good time but too often frustrating. It's worth checking out the demo to see if jumping really frustrates you or not before buying. If you can handle it and you like puzzles, you will enjoy Quantum Conundrum.

Naughty Bear 2 Panic in Paradise coming soon.

By: dragonkiss83 Jul 22, 2012 | 3 Comments

Naughty Bear didn't have the biggest audience but if you were one of the few who enjoyed it I have good news.

In case you missed it the original Naughty Bear let you control a homicidal teddy bear.  You were able to find various weapons and could also use a lot of environmental objects as weapons, such as a grill.  They even had special costumes of everything from a pirate to a superhero, with pre-order only costumes of Jason and Freddy that I've still never got :( .  The story kicked off with this teddy bear being left out of a party and the announcer sends him on a killing spree.  Now you need to have a special sort of twisted sense of humor to really enjoy this game.  The graphics weren't close to cutting edge, the voice acting was cheesy, and the controls weren't perfect.  But the game was more about getting a laugh than being game of the year.

It was announced that a sequel was in the works and then it kind of dropped off the map.  Many of us assumed the game had been dropped and information on the sequel was nowhere to be found.  And then today I was reading through a copy of Game Informer that I got signed up to again by shopping at Gamestop and I randomly found details about Naughty Bear 2.

The sequel is called Naughty Bear Panic in Paradise and will be a digital download for both PSN and XBLA.  It will be here in September so it will be lost in the shuffle with big name titles coming out, but as a downloadable game it should have a reasonable price.  Maybe the jimmys here at Gouki.com will even set FnJimmy up for a Golden Review.  I know I'll be playing it either way.

And they even dropped an announcement trailer for any of you interested.

And some gameplay footage,

So will any of you be playing?  Ever even hear of the first one?
