The newest trailer for the upcoming x-men title.
I recently saw some gameplay from x-men destiny and its looking pretty sweet. Originally i thought this was going to be like x-men legends/ MUA but i was wrong. You seem to only control one character at a time. I wonder if this is one big story with a few characters to choose from or if each of these new character will have their own story? This game drops at the end of september will you be picking it up?

2 on 2 battles?
IGN got their hands on some really cool footage of Street Fighter X Tekken. It looks similar to the dramtic battles from street fighter alpha 3 except its 2 on 2 instead of 2 on 1. I wonder if this is a special mode or is this a regular game mechanic? Either way it looks awesome i would love to know what you guys think. Let us know and don't be a jimmy.

Your worst nightmare has come true!
For months, folks have been wondering who the fourth and final downloadable fighter would be in Mortal Kombat. Today, we know, and it's friggin insane. Freddy Krueger the dream-invading, claw-wearing murder from the A Nightmare on Elm Street film franchise is coming to Mortal Kombat on Aug. 9, 2011
This Freddy rocks two claws and appears to be based more on the 2010 Freddy reboot than the classic Robert Englund look. If previous downloadable characters are any indication, Freddy Krueger in Mortal Kombat will set you back 400 Microsoft points or $4.99 on the PlayStation Network.
I wonder if jason will be added at some point? Anyway i think this is awesome and i STILL don't have the game DAMMIT. Let us know what you think and don't be a jimmy.

Here is what i think about the new characters of Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3!
First off lets start with the capcom side.
Out of the capcom bunch he is the golden goose. If you read my topic about my top 5 characters i wanted you would know he was on it and that makes me a happy man. He looks awesome and looks like he will be a combo machine. Thank god for the japanese voice option because his english voice sucks!
Out of the capcom bunch he is the worst to me. Gameplay wise he looks interesting but i have no love for him at all. I don't really see why people wanted him, he is bland and boring with no personality at least in my opinion.
Vergil was never a must have for me but im glad he made it. i liked him in DMC3 and i hope he has the same voice actor (quantam rager FTW). I hope he is not the ken version of dante i hope his move set is unique and shows people why he is just as badass as his twin brother.
Frank was not one of my top 5 but i do love him. He is from one of my all time favorite games dead rising. I never really had a chance to play TVC so so playing as frank will be a thrilling new experience for me. I just wish they added the mall stage dead rising FTW!
I have never played the phoenix games but i do know of him. I know he was highly requested and really popular. I kind of wanted him just to see how he would pan out. Im hoping he will be made into a formidable fighter and make me want to go check out his games.
Nemesis is one big bad mofo and those who are familiar with RE3 will know him well. He never even crossed my mind when thinking about characaters but he was one scary ass monster and now im intrigued to see how he will be. Although i think if any other resident evil character should have got in it should have been sheva.
Now we move on to the marvel side.
I did want ghost rider but he wasn't one of my top picks. Im glad to see him get some love and make his vs debut. He looks like a real power house with OTGs and his death stare hyper looks awesome i expect to see a lot of him in the first couple of weeks after release.
I always knew of hawkeye but never really KNEW him. I didn't think we needed him mainly because we have a arrow based fighter in taskmaster. After seeing him in action he is pretty different from taskmaster and should carve out his own niche. The best thing about hawkeye is that his theme is AMAZING i just love it i hope to see him a lot just to hear his theme.
I don't know a whole lot about iron fist but i do like him. I liked his appearance in marvel ultimate alliance 2. I expect him to be a good close range melee fighter with devastating combos and a chi like healing hyper. I don't really know how popular he is but he made the cut so that has to mean something.
Dr.strange was another highly requested character from the marvel universe. I think it makes sense to include him because why would you have a hero's villain (shuma, dormammu) and not the hero? I expect him to have a lot of long rang moves including some sort of levitation moves. I think strange will be one of those characters that seems bad until you see him in the right hands, similar to thor.
Nova is the first of two characters i know NOTHING about. Apparently he made IGN's top 100 comic book heroes of all time. In order to make that list i guess he must have something going for him. With that being said i still feel like his spot could have been givin to someone more deserving. I don't know much about him but im looking forward to his reveal i hope he was a good choice.
As soon as i saw his pic i facepalmed. Even though i knew nothing about him i was furious. I yelled we get THIS instead of cyclops, ms. marvel, venom, gambit, jubilee, blade, silver surfer, thanos ect. I shouldn't be so quick to hate someone i know nothing about be i truly feel they could have chose a more heroic and iconic character.
Well that is what i think of the new cast its got some flavor and variety. Although it could have been MUCH better i would love to know what you guys think. Let us know and don't be a jimmy.
the life of a gamer on a budget :(
Never ever have i been in such a bind. I find myself facing four big games coming out each month after the other. Usually when big games come out i have a lot of time to try to save up money. I usually NEED all that time just to scrape up enough to get to my next game. I just realized today i have to make a IMPOSSIBLE choice. So let me walk you through the four games that have me crying out in pain.
Street fighter 3rd strike online edition.
I have always loved the third strike look and feel to this day it is one of my favorites. I never got a chance to test my self against others in this game because i was never able to play online. That is no longer a issue now that capcom is bringing this amazing game to us with INCREDIBLE features. Such as GGOP net code and the ability to upload replays directly to youtube. Out of the four this one will be the cheapest and the first to be released.
Gears of war 3
For me this is the holy grail of shooters. It is my absolute favorite shooter and i have already poured 100s of hours of my life into the franchise. With awesome new features such as four player campaign mode and new beast mode and a charged up online experience its just so hard to turn it down. This is a MUST buy for me but the question is when? On release day or later down the line?
King of fighters XIII
As you all know i have been covering KOF XIII and thats because i crave it. It truly looks like a contender among the high profile fighting games of today. With a total of 32 characters to choose from there should be no shortage of variety. With amazing 2D HD graphics and silky smooth gameplay and a better online experience than the previous one who wouldn't want it.
Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3
As we all just found out, this was officially confirmed. Already being a huge fan of MVC3 naturally i want this. With 12 new characters and new stages and SPECTATOR MODE its just pure win. There is also a lot of other changes that seems like a dream come true. I never thought that it would be released in the same year as MVC3 thats just weird.
So with all that said i am in a HUGE bind. All these amazing games are coming out one after the other and its hurting my soul. As of this writing i have 15 bucks which is the same amount i had a month ago lol. So if everything happens right for me i should have enough money to get at lease one of these games. By choosing one i will leave the others. Seeing my friends playing the ones i decided not to buy will be heart breaking. So i ask my fellow jimmies which one would you choose?
Final Fantasy XIII stands out from the pack!
I have been wondering for a while why there is such a mix of reviews for this game and I honestly believe that with Final Fantasy being a long established series, there are those that will get angry with any changes that may happen. So i took it upon myself to give this game a try. I am not a die hard FF fan but i have played a few including the critically acclaimed FF7. With that said this is one of if not THE best in the series and here is why.
Ah yes, what jrpgs and this series is known for and this installment delivers on story. Without giving too much away, on Cocoon, a small floating planet in the sky, the main characters gain powers from a god-like beast called a F'alcie that happens to originate from the world below: Pulse. Years ago both Pulse and Cocoon were in a great war trying to destroy one another.
As the main characters powers stem from Pulse, the Cocoon government fears they will unleash their powers and destroy their home. People fear Pulse and for the greater good, the Cocoon government wants you dead.
What unfolds is a brilliant story that is very obvious was not thought of overnight. Enhancing the story is the "Datalog" which leads you read some back-story or get further information on current events.
Furthermore, all dialogue is voice acted. And yes they delivered. Each characters voice matches wonderfully with their characters and the acting is superb
(minus one villains voice actor in a scene figuring out what color code means what - Code red? no wait or is it code purple? What about blue?).
The story unfolds very much like a soap opera and an extremely entertaining and enthralling one at that. It is definitely geared more toward mature gamers, so those who have no emotions or are extremely childish or immature may not like it as much, but what has been written is truly amazing. The character development in this game is really good, rarely have i liked a cast this much Lighting and Sazh are just awesome.
Music & Sound:
The Final Fantasy series always shines here and this installment is no exception. The music whether it be field music or battle music is all superb. The only complaint I really had was the main theme on the title screen is used a LOT in the game. Many different renditions of it but I wish it wasn't repeated as much. However, each rendition is beautiful and fits the story at that point so its not a terrible thing.
The battle themes are great too. The main theme is fun and upbeat with some killer violin thrown in. Later on you get a few more battle songs as well depending on the location and they are all awesome.
All I can say is WOW! The graphics are fantastic. The detail in everything is phenomenal right down to the character's locks of hair. It can be hard to tell when your watching a pre rendered scene or not. Each chapter has one basic look depending on the environment so the world around you can get boring at times, but it still looks great.
Ok so the Linearity complaint. Sure it's linear to a certain point. However, It's still an amazing game.
The Linearity complaint is overused and is only valid if this game were boring and NEEDED more freedom. But the game flows so well that this really is a non-issue.
You will have great fun. The longer you play, the better it gets. And it starts out REALLY good. You don't need to get halfway through to enjoy it.
The way this game flows from battle, to scene, to cinematic cut-scenes all flow in such a way where you will not think to yourself "OMG THIS IS TOO LINEAR I WANT TO GO WHEREVER I WANT!"
You will just continue plowing through and getting more and more into the story and game.
Combat here is done superbly. Some say with auto-battle that the fun is ruined. To those who say this.....well don't use auto-battle!
To all others....the battle system is addictive as hell even using auto-battle.
Let's look at Final Fantasy 7's battle system. You control your characters. Move the cursor up or down and hit X to select attack, magic, defend, or item. Once doing so you pick the skill you want or item.
Here you control your main character, move the cursor up or down for auto-battle, class skills to use, techniques, or items and hit X.
Oh wait....its the same......Except here you can use auto-battle which generally uses (but not always) the best attacks for an enemy if you have identified its weaknesses.
And one more thing.....you can (and must) change your classes during battle! By hitting L1, you can access up to six groups of three classes you select before battle. Each class has different skills so you must chose what classes you need at the right moment....or you are dead.
In actuality, this makes the battle system here more advanced than any previous Final Fantasy game. This is because you MUST think on your feat, and you benefit from having the right classes. So you actually have more options than Final Fantasy 7 or 8 .... or any other in the series.
The battle system here is addictive as hell and this is by far the most difficult Final Fantasy game there is. Although in later chapters you can grind and actually make the main game pretty easy, those that don't grind will see how much more difficult this is than any other in the main series.
And of course there are bosses harder than the final boss! Some secret hunts will have you ripping your hair out until you become beastly strong and most of these you can't kill until you beat the game and unlock level 10 of the crystarium.
Speaking of the crystarium.....think Sphere Grid from 10. Except you can't delete nodes. It's an alright system. Not the best but each character has their own specific skills and stats so there will be times that its best to have a certain character in your team.
Final Verdict: BUY IT!
It took me a little over 60 hours to complete this game. So in terms of length FF13 delivers and its a fun ride all the way through. As for post game features you can complete 64 missions which consist of defeating strong monsters and even some STRONG, HUGE, and HARD monsters. In my opinion this is one of the greatest Final Fantasy's out there. The battle system is the most fun of any that I have played. It is fast paced like most other games these days and keeps you on your toes. The music is beautiful and the graphics even more so. The strong characters and major character development also enriches this epic adventure.
Let us know what you think and don't be a jimmy.
A video showing off the max cancel system of KOF XIII
The max cancel system from what i can tell is similar to the MVC3 DHC. Although insted of canceling into a partners super you cancel into a more powerful super of your own. With all the SFXT and SSF4AE and MVC3 talk KOF XIII is deep under the radar. This video is a game changer and by that i mean it can sway those who are on the fence about buying it. Take a look for yourself and see why KOF XIII has the goods. Let us know what you think and don't be a jimmy.
