Star Wars The Old Republic Release Date Official Announcement

By: goukijones Sep 24, 2011 | 2 Comments | Updated: Sep 24, 2011

Finally the street date for the US & UK release for Star Wars The Old Republic. Could it be perfect timing considering all the great releases these next couple of months?

Finally after what seems like SWTOR has been in development longer than Duke Nukem Forever, we have a solid release date.

12/20/2011

It's official. Now I already pre-ordered because I'm not a Jimmy. Allegedly, I will get earlier access then the rest of you nuabs. So this is a perfect release date, I think. It's long after after all of the major release come out and right at the start of the Winter dead zone. From about the 20th of December until everyone goes back to work and school that first week in January, nothing happens in the world of video games. 

Expect to see me on The Old Republic. Leave a comment on this story, if you want to party up. We can rule the galaxy, Gouki Guild style. 

You can PRE-ORDER from amazon, get early access and get some colored stone or something for your lightsaber. lol. Irrelevant!

Ubisoft Booth E3 2013 GJ vs FNJ Exclusive Video

By: goukijones Jun 30, 2013 | 1 Comments

GoukiJones & FnJimmy talk about Ubisoft & some random Jimmy walks thru the shot. E3 2013. Some fuckin' nuab walking thru the shot.

Shout out to Ubisoft, thank you for allowing us to raid your booth & check out all of the games. Well we didn't see Watch Dogs, but I don't need to waste time at E3 on a game that is coming out in the next couple of months. We saw it during the press conference & it pretty much looked the same last year & was still on schedule. That demo was going to be basically more of the same. 

We saw the Stick of Truth, now everybody remember this was a THQ game last year & was actually supposed to be released in March. Well THQ crashed & Ubisoft got the rights to this game. So I was interested to see how/if any of the game was changed. The last time I saw it was at SDCC. Now you can fight on the outside of instanced fights. Oh man, what am I trying to say. Say you're walking around in the over world, well in South Park you have the option to use a sling shot or whatever they had & take out 1 of the baddies, then run up to the guy next to him, touch him & then go into battle. I don't really know how well that is going to work in the game overall, but it seemed pretty smooth during the demo. BTW this game looks just like the show, it's amazing. Super hype!

AC17, skipped it. Don't care.

The car racing game where you're taking down money trucks. Looks cool. But it's cars, it's bullshit.

We saw the Guitar game. People will never play anything like Guitar Hero again, when you can play with a real guitar & actually learn a skill. It's expensive yeah, but just do what BatRastered says, go to the Pawn Shop & get some Jimmy ass guitar for like $40 bucks & start playing. 

The Division was the only really unique thing we saw. Unfortunately it was the same exact demo as the press conference. Maybe there was a little more explained to us, but basically the same shit. This game looks dope, we of course had tons of questions about how the open world & VS stuff works, but they weren't talking about any of that right now. Classic E3. Got some cool swag tho.

PhysX on Borderlands 2 with an NVIDIA GeForce

By: BatRastered Sep 18, 2012 | 3 Comments

We played a couple hours of Borderlands 2 on PC while waiting for our Loot Chest editions to show up. We checked it out with PhysX turned on to see the difference. How does it compare to the console experience? Exclusive video.

We first saw the PhysX demo that NVIDIA released on youtube about a month ago. I have to say, we were blown away with that video, but needed to see it for ourselves.

PhysX with and without

When building GoukiJones' rendering machine last year, we included a GeForce GTX 560ti (then $249). The good news is that card is still up to date enough to play Borderlands 2 on high detail with PhysX enabled (on GoukiJones' 16x10 monitor). The better news is you can now get a GTX 660 for about $230 that will outperform the 560ti while using less power.

We were given a steam code by NVIDIA for a copy of Borderlands 2 so we could test the PhysX engine vs the console versions we usually play here at the Gouki.com offices. Thanks guys!

Seeing the extra elemental sparks fly looks really cool and the bodies fall to the ground realistically while bits and pieces of their armor pop off and wheel away in all directions. Though what really changes are the various cloth awnings, tarps, banners, and flags that inhabit the world of Pandora. Instead of being solid objects that don't move at all, they now come to life, blowing in the wind, reacting to your movements and gunshots, and generally behaving like you'd expect in the real world. It's not vital to game play, but it certainly makes the environment feel more alive.

Many other, smaller things stood out to me as well... from the snow melting on the screen to the goop (for lack of a better word) that sticks around after the exploding barrels are dealt with to the blood that pours from your own body after your shield is gone and you take a hit, PhysX makes for a more believable experience. I love how the little bits and pieces stick around in the environment during the gunfight. It littered the ground after one boss battle.

I used a Razer Onza tournament edition to control the game, it worked really well and just as I expected coming from the Xbox. This made the transition pretty smooth and I felt right at home on Pandora. One of the big differences from the consoles is just the huge amount of customizations you can do to the video settings, changing the FOV and customizing the level of detail and hud and just about anything else you could want.

This test proved one thing to me at least, the consoles are really overdue for a refresh. At this rate, last year's GPUs are doing some amazing things that I would consider "next-gen" if I saw it on my TV... and with Valve's announcement of "Big Picture" mode for Steam, and the rapid decline in prices of last year's GPU tech, putting together a gaming PC for the living room for less than the launch price of typical console ($350-450) seems within reach. Hopefully more and more games support the controller out of the box too, as I'm horrible with a keyboard/mouse when it comes to gaming.

DragonKiss83

Call of Duty: Black Ops First Strike DLC

By: DragonKiss83 Mar 3, 2011 | 7 Comments

So the wait is over, the PS3 now has the new pack

The Xbox 360 had it first but now we do too.  For 14.99 you get 4 new multi-player maps and a zombie map.  Some jimmy's are super hyped about this and I'm enjoying some new levels, but I think the price was high for no more than we got.

The new Zombie Board for Ascension is fun, but anytime you can put a bullet in a Zombies dome is fun.

Stadium is just what it sounds like, and it gets a bit crazy with losts of spots for the campers to hide.

Kowloon is a fairly small map (the one you try to help the doctor escape on in main story) it is pretty decent.  Oh yeah and a Zipline.

Discovery is a pretty big level with options for all play styles and I think this is the one with the bridge you can blow up but I haven't seen it yet.

Berlin Wall has turrets that are waiting for you and they are vicous, they even have the no mans land marked in red on you map.  This may be my favorite map in the pack.

The new maps aren't game changers so if you didn't like it before you won't like it now.  You can find me on PSN at dragonkiss83 if you want, but I'm not great.

My biggest problem right now is that after playing Borderlands I keep throwing grenades when it try to scope in or shoot.

 

Overall I'ld say I could live without the maps so I'ld say flush it until it goes on sale unless you are a hardcore Black Ops Jimmy.

Madden 10 Review

By: hoho23 Sep 24, 2009 | 5 Comments

Madden's back. Is it just more of the same or did the big boys come out to play this year?

Football season has officially begun! So that only means Cheerleaders, booze, bbqs, tailgates, and of course the next installment in the latest Madden 10 by EA Sports.

I know a lot of people say the same thing every year about EA and the Madden franchise, that its the same game with a new coat of paint or roster shuffles or what ever the case. I'm here to tell you why  Madden 10 is the best EA has offered in years and possibly the best football sim ever (yes NFL 2k5 included).

The theme for this year is fight for every yard and rightfully so as all die hard fans know its a game of inches just ask the 1999 Titans loosing by just a yard. Of course a lot of the new additions are the usual new roster better graphics and animations as they should be every year. Its always great to play a match and see a new tackle or new catch animation that you've never seen. But back to the theme, with this theme they introduced the new Pro-Tak feature which simply is a "gang tackle" that up to 9 other AI offensive or defensive can join in on and either push the pile forward or back. But this new feature is great when going up against those tough to tackle Power-backs such as Brandon Jacobs and of course Adrian Peterson just to name a couple. This can be can extremely crucial if used right which can either stop the ball carrier in their tracks instead of letting them scamper for a TD. Don't think that this will make the "D" over powerd against the "O" some backs like the two mentioned previously or elite players can every once in a while break free of a two or maybe even 3 player gang-tackle and can lead to Huge plays!

Now to the gameplay where I think Madden has done a great job in making it feel more true to life than previous years is the gamespeed and feel of how players run and break in and out of their cuts. The game has been slowed down from previous versions and I think its one of the best things they could've done. The game now feels as if you were actually watching a game on a Sunday afternoon. I think the best thing that can be said is it play's more like a sim and less like a "arcadey" football game.

Now to the online portion of Madden. This year they've finally decided to go all out with the online franchise with up to 32 teams playing a season head to head for a chance to get to the Super Bowl. The differnce from this years and last years Madden online franchise is you know have a more robust options menu its as if you were playing a single player franchise will all the options trades, free agents, highlights, full stats you name it its there its the complete online franchise.

With that said I think this is the best Madden ever and the best Football sim ever as well. The game has been out for almost 2 months, if you love football and don't have this go get it it's awesome!

Z.O.E.: Zone of the Enders to return on the 3DS?

By: neiogeo Aug 16, 2011 | 4 Comments

Hideo Kojima's at it again! An image posted on his Twitter page recently has fans buzzing with excitement...is there another Z.O.E. on the way?

Titled "Z.O.E.: 3DZ" behind the series' protagonist orbital frame "Jehuty" , the picture was posted on Hideo Kojima's twitter page, citing that this was sitting on Takahiro Omori's desk at Konami Headquarters.

Takahiro Omori's work can be seen throughout the "Metal Gear Solid" franchise and the first "Zone of the Enders".

Speculation has run rampant throughout the Konami Community that Mr. Omori's onboard for some kind of adaptation of the original ZOE, or an entirely new outing, exclusively for the 3DS.

The last time ZOE entered the handheld arena was with 2002's "Zone of the Enders: The Fist of Mars", a neo-strategy/RPG set years after the events of the first two games. The title received mixed reviews for its' story and visuals and its' unique FPS-esque battle interface. The franchise has been on hiatus since then, only appearing in anime form as "Zone of the Enders:IDOLO" and the OVA "Zone of the Enders: Dolores".

Playing Diablo 3 with an Xbox 360 Controller

By: goukijones May 17, 2012 | 7 Comments

Nothing a little determination won't over come. After trying multiple programs and testing out tons of configurations. GoukiJones finally achieved greatness, by killing the skeleton king with an Xbox 360 Controller. Here's how:

Everybody has seen the story about the Xpadder. That Jimmy has posted that same story all over the internet. Well the Xpadder is $10. I'm cheap. Plus I just paid full price for Diablo 3 that has been in development for years and should have come with a simple feature, such as controller support. Never mind all that, Xpadder is $10 and I wasn't having that. I did find a free version of Xpadder, but it wouldn't even install and giving me pc safety warnings. I searched the internets and came across a few different FREE options. Free options are always scary, but I was willing to risk it.

Monster Hunter Tri(3) First Love?

By: reipuerto Apr 20, 2010 | 4 Comments

CAPCOM moved this in to what?! (First impression)

Capcom, you sexy, lying, penny pinching, re-releasing games and putting out you. You sure out did yourself on this one! Monster Hunter Tri for the Nintendo Wii is a great addition to the series and it delivers!

While the story isn’t in par with those of Bayonetta, Devil May Cry, Megaman, and Dead Rising, but it’s all about questing. You start the game as a traveler from a far land that arrivals when an earthquake strikes and it’s up the “the lone hero” to investigate and make the villagers happy at the same time. While the story might not catch your attention, the quest style with friends will!

The premise of the game is to hunt monster, use their parts, to hunt bigger and badder beast! It’s a vicious cycle since each piece of amour and weapon increase quality, slots and attributes. The game supports Wii Speak , Wi-Fi, friend code/ with or without actual friends, and two player offline area style split screen. CAPCOM has even bundled the game with Nintendo’s new Classic Pro Controller.

So far, my experience has been pleasant. The controls are great with the Pro and the learning curve isn’t hard, just be patient and you’ll feel great taking down a massive monster.

Buy it Jimmy! A game that’s FREE online, weekly quests that are added, and a soon to be growing online community. It’s a steal. BUY IT!

Borderlands 2 improved on the original in many areas: story, graphics, depth of skill trees to name a few. But overall it doesn't have that super fun looting hook that the original had. Here's 10 things we hate about the sequel.

Borderlands 2 improved on the original in many areas: story, graphics, depth of skill trees to name a few. But overall it doesn't have that super fun looting hook that the original had. Here's 10 things we hate about the sequel. 

10. Follow Randy Pitchford on Twitter if you want gold keys, no way to earn them in-game.

There's a big gold treasure chest in Sanctuary (the main city) that can only be opened with a golden key. It's guaranteed to have purple rarity items in it every time you open it. Quest reward? Nah... just follow Gearbox CEO Randy Pitchford's twitter and you'll have more keys than you know what to do with. There's no other way to get them. Kinda lame.

9. DLC that doesn't give you any rewards for your maxed out characters.

In the original Borderlands, the DLC would give you bonus backpack space, additional skill points, and a giant bank. BL2's DLC doesn't give you any of this. Once you hit the max level and have used all your eridum upgrades for ammo/backpack space, there's nothing for your character to get in the DLC save for some unique weapons. Most of those suck too (see point 3).

8. Umpteen currencies

Borderlands 1 had money... the economy was way off though as you'd often be displayed at $9999999 and not be able to see how much money you actually had. Many guns showed this price too. Instead of just fixing this in the sequel Gearbox added Eridium as a secondary currency to buy ammo and backpack upgrades. Then, in the DLC, they introduced Seraph Crystals and Torgue Tokens. This plus the golden keys, gave us 5 numbers to track that only worked in certain areas.

7. Anemic backpack space

Before DLC, the original BL maxed out at 42 backpack slots. BL2 maxed out at 27. Wait, what? The bank introduced in Borderlands' second DLC (Moxxi) also stored up to 42 items while the BL2 bank (included in the main game) only stored 16, it has since been upped to 20, while the backpack has gone to 33. Meanwhile, in the original, you could get up to a 60 item backpack if you got all the DLC and lucked out in some of the second quests.

6. Ammo collection mini-game

Do you like opening ammo crates and picking up ammo? Well if you do, you'll love BL2. Due to many guns firing more than one bullet per trigger pull, lowered ammo capacities, and the lack of guns/mods that regen ammo, you'll be scrounging for ammo constantly. God help you if you use a rocket launcher. In a game about guns, I don't know why Gearbox felt it necessary to make the ammo feel so limited.

5. Slag

Borderlands 2 introduced Slag, a debuff element that makes enemies take more damage when you switch to another element type. It's pretty useless in normal mode, but kinda useful in the second playthrough. In the later released 3rd playthrough (UVHM) slag is absolutely necessary. You can't win without it as you'll just burn through all your ammo trying to kill anything that's not slagged. This reduces the types of play styles that you can use and obviously requires you dedicate some of your gear to slag. Bye bye diversity... everyone's the same now.

4. Rabid stalkers

Have you fought these? Ugh... the move faster than you, can down you in two hits, can turn invisible and strike out of nowhere, have a ton of health and don't get distracted by anything. Most annoying ememy in both games and DLC. Runner up is the Rabid skags. They seem completely unbalanced and fighting multiple badasses is easier than dealing with one of these baddies.

3. Terrible guns

For a game about having bazillion-er guns there certainly don't seem to be that many. In fact, it feels like there's less than the first game. If you only count guns that are actually useful, then the number drops even further, eliminating whole manufacturerers of guns. With one or two exceptions (dat kerblaster!) the orange guns in BL2 don't seem as fun to me as the original either. I miss my Maliwan shotties!

2. Orange weapons useless 2 levels later (gets worse the higher the level)

I feel more powerful at level 69 in the original Borderlands while carrying a level 53 gun, than I do at (current max) level 61 in BL2 carrying a level 60 orange weapon. Every level you go higher, the difference one level makes gets bigger too. You need at level gear at all times, and to get some good ones you'll use a golden key that you can only get out of game on twitter. 

1. No rewards (drops are awful, chests are worse, vendors LOL)

In Borderlands, a bandit would be shooting you with an epic weapon and upon his death he would drop that weapon. That doesn't happen in BL2, they just drop shit. The chests are full of shit, and the vendors are just laughably filled with white shit. You can play for hours and hours and never see an orange weapon. You probably won't even get an at-level purple unless you have a golden key either. It just feels like you don't get rewarded for playing this game the way you did in the first Borderlands. The only thing that drops anything good are the legendary loot midgets that randomly pop out of ammo crates in the third playthrough (UVHM) and they most often will drop a relic.

 

The jimmy asses who run Mad Catz put out a press release, but didn't update their site.

Mad Catz today announced via a press release that the previously announced BrawlStick and BrawlPad are now shipping. Allegedly. See, the website still says pre-order.

They also announced some new designs for the BrawlPad featuring John "Jimmy" Cena and Hulk Hogan.

To celebrate the launch of the new range, Mad Catz also announced today a new BrawlPad design depicting all-time great Hulk Hogan and WWE Superstar John Cena® with official artwork from the videogame. The new design joins the previously announced BrawlPad featuring The People’s ChampionTM, The Rock® and WWE Superstar Triple H®.

I wish I could see what the new designs looked like, but again, these Jimmies have not updated their site.
