Grimshade Gouki.com Review

By: goukijones Apr 29, 2019 | 1 Comments

What I had the most trouble with was reading the map. I couldn’t make it out of the first zone or past the quest “Stashes of Brann.”

Grimshade is a tactical turn-based game.  During battle the teams are separated by a line down the middle of the battle field.  You have a small grid to move your characters around on.  It’s not free roaming like Final Fantasy Tactics, you can’t walk to the side of an enemy or get behind them.  Some of the characters have moves that get behind the enemies, but every fight takes place with this virtual line in the sand. 

I started the game on the hardest difficulty setting.  The combat early felt more like I was just memorizing the sequence of attacks from the enemy to be ready to counter.  I didn’t mind this and felt the combat getting more challenging with each fight, especially when I started adding more party members.

What I had the most trouble with was reading the map.  I couldn’t make it out of the first zone or past the quest “Stashes of Brann.”  I have played many games in my lifetime and spent two 90 minute sessions running around this map looking for this one missing item. I had collected two of the three items and the map showed me the general area they were located, but not exactly where.  You can walk right into different areas of the map without any indication that it is happening. So I had the idea of just going around the outside and inside walls to search for the missing item.  When I found the second item it was hidden underneath a floor tile.  At this point I knew for sure which area one of the three items came from. The second item in my inventory I did not know what area I had picked it up in so that meant I had to search both areas again.   This is when the back and forth started for like two hours.  I knew it was one of two areas and I felt like I had completely combed both areas and clicked on everything possible.  This is when I began to think that I may have glitched the game.

Wheatly that fits in the palm of your hand!

Youtube user http://www.youtube.com/user/ammnra is a crafty dude. He is the same guy who made the Rubix Companion cube last year, and replicates weapons from many other games. Today he brings us something a bit more relevant. Mini fan-made versions of Wheatly, Adventure Sphere, Fact Sphere and Space Sphere! They look like they came straight from Portal 2! Unfortunately he is not marketing/ selling them, so we can only watch in awe over the internet.

And his picture gallery http://www.flickr.com/photos/ammnra/sets/72157626669964230/with/5722889210/

Most played games on Xbox live in 2011

By: BatRastered Jan 7, 2012 | 2 Comments

A list of the most played games last year on Xbox live.

Major Nelson posted this list on his blog yesterday. It's not too surprising that Black Ops beat MW3 and BF3 since those came out in November and Black Ops had all year. What is surprising is the continued strength of MW2. Seriously? Who's still playing that? I highly recommend you Jimmy-asses to pick up Battlefield 3.

Xbox 360 Top LIVE Titles (based on UU’s)

  1. Call of Duty: Black Ops
  2. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3
  3. Modern Warfare 2
  4. Halo: Reach
  5. Battlefield 3
  6. Skyrim
  7. Gears of War 3
  8. FIFA 12
  9. FIFA Soccer 11
  10. Madden NFL 12
  11. GTA IV
  12. NBA 2K11
  13. Battlefield: Bad Co. 2 
  14. Call of Duty 4
  15. Battlefield 3 Beta 
  16. Halo 3

Demon’s Souls Review

By: reipuerto Aug 25, 2010 | 5 Comments

You will get beat. A lot. And then some. Until you learned your lesson. And still come back for more.

Demon’s Souls is one of the MOST UNDERAPPRECIATED game of last year. Once this game was praised for unorthodox reasons, it kicked off and reminded us, the gamers, that games aren’t only meant to be enjoyed, but to be challenged in them too. Making the experience worth the purchase. The makes of Demon’s Souls, From Software, know how to make a game. They also published the Tenchu and Armored Core series too. And Atlus made a great investment of taking the publishing rights and releasing it here in North America. So let’s get started shall we?

[copyrighted image removed]

Story- You are in a corrupted Kingdom called Boletaria and the King is a selfish bastard and uses dark ritual to gain power. So heroes try to service the people but get destroyed in the process. There is a fantastic story behind this but the game’s narrative is lost. A shame because some the character you meet SEEM to have a bigger story than the main character! Seriously! It makes you think that you are really there to help them and finish their. But you also get your own place in the world. There is a character that helps you instead of killing you. Referred to as the Maiden in Black, and your source of leveling up, she helps you with your quest. And there are even some secrets of the story, you’ll wondering for a WHILE.


Gameplay- This game is at your control. Like InFamous, the controls are spot on. The only mistake is the player. You can block, roll, back step, put up your shield, swing weapon, swing weapon with two hands, light and heavy strikes with single and cast magic/miracles. You also have to watch your stamina bar. To “level up”, you use the game’s currency, demon’s souls, to increase your personal style of preference. On the out skirts of the game, you get to pick you class, not race, and ride with it. But after that, you can make a magicians with strong attack, and soldiers with strong magic. Weigh and inertia of your equipment do matter. Carry all that junk and you’re as slow as a cow. Pack light and you can use less stamina and maneuver much faster. The game is yours. The control is yours. It’s like more Zelda sword play. And you’ll die. More times than you can count too. Why? Because you’re reckless and you play too much Halo and Call of Duty. Those game hold your hand. Demon’s Souls will look at you fail and kick you while you are down too. Because not only dying means to reset the level from the beginning with EVERY enemy you killed, RESPAWN, but you lose your all-in-one currency too. Demon’s Souls takes you back to the old days. No training wheels here folks. You die because you are rash. You die because you got cocky. You die because you are careless. Slow and a steady wins the race here. There is a REAL tension here.
The gameplay also has “online” play offline play. What that means Jimmy is, you are always connected to PSN. And you will see ghost or Souls wondering around doing something in your world. Those are real players living in your game, doing something in that area. If you see blood stains on the floor, get ready for a blast. You get to view the last few seconds of that poor bastard that made the wrong move. They are your help. And you can leave writing on the wall and people will read it. If they “like” it, your health gets replenish because of your helpful deed. Else, nothing. You can even trick people into their own death…
Souls can also INVADE your game and try to kill you, if you‘re in human form. They are known as Black Phantom, and they crash your adventure and try to take your life so they can be revived in their world. But as human, you can summon White Phantom to help you fight back. As human form, you have full health, you can summon others but your footsteps are loud, yes, that matter! In Soul form, you health is reduced to half, you can invade/assist others games, and are quite!
If you progress the game while doing good deeds, in a sense of banishing the demons and not dying, the World’s Tendency will get brighter, making the game SLIGHTY easy. But if you die and invade others, the World gets darker and game get harder.

Sound- The game has an amazing orcastrated sound. The sounds of real drums and instruments make it better. The clash of swords and bow guns launching, arrows bouncing of your shield, fire, beast, and blood spatter, all sound superb!


Graphics- The game has a beautiful scenery. It will capture your attention, when you’re not looking at the game over screen time and time again. It is unfortunate that the came comes off as generic. The detail in deforming your ugly human is humorous. But hey, that’s what armor is for.

Over all- Buy it! It is an adventure WORTH taking. Not many games can deliver this kind of intensity and the sense of defeating a foe, is on par with beating a game. The DEEP mechanics are insane! Just to beat Demon’s Souls will require a talent that we as gamers lost, patience and perseverance! BUY IT twice because it’s a rare jewel.
 


Just listen to the beauty...

Have you ever wondered if the top ranked player on the Xbox Live Leaderboard for Super Street Fighter 4 was legit? Well I've always suspected cheating, and now there is video proof. Check it out!

I'm a huge fan of Super Street Fighter 4. It is one of the most well balanced fighting games to date. No character (maybe Hakan) is worthless in this game. Which is why I play it so much, and never get tired of it. I've checked out the leaderboards before to find replays of some of the best players in the world. Players such as Diago, Gamerbee, Gootecks, Mike Ross, Justin Wong, Sako, Marn, Tokido, and YHC Mochi among others. But I've always noticed a few players with exceptionally high PP, over 7k to be precise. Anyway aMasahitolkeda6 has been exposed for cheating (boosting) PP to become number 1 on the leaderboard.


Now why would you upload your replays to the SSF4 channel if you've been cheating? Sad really. Check it out!

 

Don't be a Jimmy like aMasahitolkeda6!

9 different game modes, online play, 7 locations and 30 unique courses.

It looks like a total crashfest!

It's absolutely the stupidest shit on the internet.

First of all the VGX - which was once called the Video Game Awards with this elaborate production similar to a typical award show, with presenters & musical acts - has been reduced to internet spam with no fast forward button. Whatever, it only happens once a year & I kinda don't mind sitting there for a couple of hours watching this nonsense.

Who were those black guys they would cut to? Why did they have all of the price tags still on their clothes? Is that the new style? I am getting old. :(

There was a video posted on YouTube about the best cringe moments from the show. Viacom, shut that shit down straight away. You can still check it out in this Trendolizer site

Honestly if it wasn't for Joel Mchale, this would have been super dreadful. It definitely didn't need to be 3 hours. 

Now do you understand why Bethesda & many other companies pulled out from this years show. 

Then we have the final "Musical Performance" at the end of the night. Hope you aren't watching with any children in the room because there as a ton of uncensored rap music. Which was fine for me, I'm an adult, but c'mon Geoff Keighley, WTF is going on?

Go watch that video if you haven't seen it already. I've watched it like 10 times.
