Makoto Vs Ryu at Super vs Battle in London

By: Cinderkin Aug 26, 2010 | 8 Comments

V-Ryu (Makoto)vs Kusanagi94 (Ryu)

A very impressive showing of skill with Makoto from V-Ryu at Super vs Battle this year. His opponent an 11 year old Ryu player named Kusanagi94. Kusanagi94 is not a Ryu to take lightly, as he beat Diago once at the tournament held in London this year.

Makoto is still considered very unfamiliar for most players, so it nice to see some high level play with her.

Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds Review

By: Cinderkin Feb 14, 2011 | 21 Comments

It's been 11 years and Marvel vs Capcom 3 is finally here... too bad it's terrible. After all these years this is what Capcom has to offer? An unpolished game, broken game play, and and uninspired storyline. MvC3 is a complete disappointment. Find out why!

Now that I’ve got your attention, I just wanted to say that everyone on the Gouki.com crew loves Marvel vs Capcom 3.

Summary:

Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds is finally upon us. After 11 years of waiting since the release of the well-known and still played Marvel vs Capcom 2, Capcom and Marvel Comics unite once again. The 3 on 3 brawler is back and better than ever with 36+ characters, 100+ hyper combos, and dream match-ups galore. After spending well over 12 hours of straight Marvel vs Capcom 3 action the Gouki.com crew is still itching for more. Capcom and Marvel favorites such as Ryu, Chun Li, Captain America and Spider-Man return as well as adding some new faces to the games franchise like Dante, Arthur, M.O.D.O.K and Deadpool. Marvel vs Capcom 3 is something to be remembered.

Story:

Marvel vs Capcom 3 has an impressive storyline this time around. A great threat is upon the two worlds of Marvel and Capcom. Dr. Doom has gathered all the most evil villains of the Marvel universe, such as Super Skrull, Magneto, and Dormammu and joined forces with Albert Wesker in a plot to join their worlds in order to conquer them. That is until Galactus from the Fantastic 4 is awakened and threatens the entire earth. It is up to all of the heroes and villains to stop Galactus before he destroys both worlds and rules the galaxy.

Here is a video of a full Arcade run through, but check out Galalctus at 12:36!

Gameplay:

The gameplay of MvC3 is unlike the other vs series where the button configurations are of 4 buttons instead of your classic 6 button set up. What has returned from MvC2 is the 3 vs 3 2D action. Choose up to 3 characters from Marvel, Capcom, or a mix between and battle it out against a team of 3. Character assists return as well as hyper combos. What is new in MvC3 is the X-Factor, which is what you would call your desperation or clutch card. Activating X-Factor not only heals your fighter during battle, but also makes them stronger and gives them better defense. X-Factor lasts longer and is more effective when only 1 fighter of a team remains, but using it earlier has its advantages as well. Also new to the series is tagging out fighters within combos. Launch your opponent into the air to continue a combo and you can tag out to your next fighter making the combo even greater. Capcom has made MvC3 more accessible than ever with the new Simple Mode. Simple Mode allows those new to the vs series to be able to jump in with a simplified control scheme and still pull off insane combos, making Marvel vs Capcom 3 fun and accessible for beginners, advanced or any skill level.

Game Modes:

MvC3 has a good amount of modes this time around, and will suit everyone. There is your classic Arcade mode where you pick a team of 3 and fight through 6 stages before reaching the final boss fight. Arcade mode is your story mode for MvC3. Then you have Versus mode, which if you have friends over this will take up most of your time. 2 players each choose a team of 3 and battle it out for bragging rights among friends or each other. The Gouki.com crew played this mode the most and we still can’t get enough. New to the Marvel vs Capcom series is Mission mode. Mission mode is a list of moves and combos that must be completed for each character. There are 10 missions per character and they each get increasingly more difficult. Training mode has returned from MvC2, but is better than ever. Training mode is one of the best features in the game, because it allows you to not only mess around, but learn combos, tricks, and more.

Check out this video of me going through some of the trials with a few characters

Visuals:

MvC3 runs on the MT Framework in full 3D and is the most impressive vs game to date. It simply looks amazing. The colors, the lighting, the character models, even the stages are impressive. Capcom has really outdone themselves with MvC3. The game just looks too good. Each character is done is full 3D, with defining characteristics that truly sets them apart from anyone else in the cast. From The Hulk’s veins, to Wesker’s Jacket, every character has something that brings out their personalities; sprites are a thing of the past. The stages are wonderful with how each has things that make them stand out from the rest. Capcom and Marvel fans will notice little cameos and easter eggs in the backgrounds of the stages. MvC3 looks stunning.

Audio:

The audio in MvC3 is wonderful. The voice work for each character is done exactly how you would expect them. When you hear Captain America say “Avengers Assemble” it will put a smile on your face. The characters each have close to 60+ sounds and quotes that completely define them. Deadpool breaks the fourth wall with some of his quotes, and Ryu says things that you would expect from him. MvC3 also has quotes just based on character match-ups or team choices; it adds a nice touch to the voice work. The music is fantastic in MvC3 with character specific themes, as well as great menu themes. They even brought back the famous “Take You for a Ride” with a few remixes as well.

Online:

MvC3 has an online component that will please a lot of people, but also disappoint others. While MvC3 has Ranked, Player, and Lobby Battles which you would expect they dropped the ball on the 8-player lobby system. In games like Super Street Fighter 4 and Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo HD Remix, lobby play allows those not playing to be able to spectate the matches while they wait for their turn. MvC3 is missing this option as of right now, and hopefully will be rectified in a patch soon. Other than that the online is great. You can enjoy player matches to test your skills against others for fun, or you can jump in a ranked match and battle against the best for points. With online play MvC3 is going to give you a ton of replay value.

Marvel vs Capcom 3: Fate of Two worlds is one of the best fighting games ever made, and will give you a fun experience for years to come. With the possibility for DLC the roster could reach into the 50’s and we could see new modes, new stages, and plenty more. If you like fighting games, super heroes, or just having fun in general then Marvel vs Capcom 3 is the game for you. Don’t be a Jimmy and go out and get yourself a copy. Tell your friends to get it, you won’t be disappointed.

Bottom Line: BUY IT!

BiffOTasty posted a video showing Desk going through all of Ryu's most challenging trials with one hand.

Found this Video over at http://www.eventhubs.com/

Here's what he had to say about it.

"I had the idea, spent about an hour going through the trials to see if it was doable. Then recorded this the next day in about half an hour (including the time spent starting and stopping my [crappy] camera). 21 and 24 were the hardest, almost made me reconsider trying to do it, but then I realized that I was hardcore."

Can you do this? Tell us in the Comments.

Ever had trouble doing a standing 720 ultra move? Do you even know what it is? Well Desk has a very good tutorial showing off how its done. Check it out!

Here is the description:

This is a new technique and entirely different from the method used by Vangief and other Zangief players. The existing method requires the player to hide or 'buffer' half of the motion in a normal or jump. This does not.

Its practicality is exactly parallel to how hardcore a player you are. So, if you're not hardcore, then it won't be practical.

Although technically, you only need 4 inputs after initiating your jump animation(up, right, down and left). You will most likely be going past diagonals. This will mean you have 7 frames to hit 7 inputs.

Dead Island Review

By: cinderkin Sep 18, 2011 | 6 Comments

Dead Island has recently been released and with all sorts of choices for zombie games, does Dead Island have what it takes to keep your interest. Is it worth your money? I tell you straight in the Gouki.com Official Review. Don’t be a Jimmy! Check it out.

Zombie games have become quite popular in the last few years, with successes such as Dead Rising, Left 4 Dead, and Dead Nation (see a trend here?). Techland and Deep Silver have gotten on board with a Zombie game of their own with Dead Island. Does this 5 year plus developed game show a fine polish or is it another Techland disaster? Find out in the Gouki.com Review.

 

 

Story:

The story of Dead Island is by far one of the most uninspired pieces of garbage I have seen in a game in a long time. The game starts with giving you a short character bio for each of the four cast members, detailing why they are on the island of Banoi and a little insight into who they are. None of these things matter as the game quickly removes any real story aspect from the game. The game starts with you in your hotel room after a zombie outbreak has occurred, leaving you helpless to fend off zombies. You quickly here a voice that tells you to grab a weapon and head for safety. You’ll soon find yourself incapacitated by the undead, but find out that you are immune to becoming a zombie (how convenient).  Meaning that every surviving person on the island makes you their personal errand boy/girl because you can’t become infected by the undead and they all can; making for some pretty cheesy story arcs.  You’ll soon find yourself ignoring any sense of story here, which is probably the only bad thing about Dead Island.

Gameplay:

The gameplay mechanics in Dead Island are what you would expect from your average first person shooter, but this is no shooter. While there are guns, they are very hard to come by. Your only real source for survival is relying heavily on melee combat, and team work.  Dead Island is a 4-player co-op experience and this is where the game shines very well.  It reminds me a lot of Borderlands with all of the weapons and how there are hundreds of different customization options for them.  Dead Island also uses a very unique way of melee combat, with the right analog stick you can slash and swing in whichever direction you feel. It makes aiming for the head or limbs that much easier, and as we all know cut or bash a zombie in the head and they’re dead. This takes a bit of time to get used to but once you do it is a lot of fun slicing the heads of zombies with perfect precision. There are times when there are a ton of zombies attacking you at once without any frame rate issues. Also there are a bunch of different zombie types, ranging from Walkers, Infected, Thugs, and more. My only gripe with the online multiplayer is that the game doesn’t force character selection like in Left 4 Dead, which sounds like a good thing, but when you have 3 out of 4 players using the same character it’s impossible to differentiate between them as each character looks exactly the same. This also doesn’t help with team unity, because in Dead Island each of the 4 characters has special abilities and skills that benefit one another for the best survival.  When all 4 players are the same guy it tends to become mute point. Another great thing about co-op is that you aren’t really tied to a leash with your partners, you are basically free to explore the island however you like, but there are some missions that require all players there to start. Exploring the island is essential for finding new weapons and mods, plus also secret missions. The driving mechanics in the game aren’t bad but there aren’t great either. I do have a problem with driving in first person only and with the steering wheel being on the right side, but I’m just being picky here. Overall the game plays much like Borderlands and Left 4 Dead and that is a good thing.

Visuals:

The look of Dead Island feels a little outdated with some bad textures here and there, and the character models look a little flushed out and not as refined, but the undead look great. The environments also look pretty good considering how there are so many places to go and zombies on screen. The game rarely loads either unless you are leaving or entering certain areas of the game. Seeing a zombie get his head bashed in by a spiked bat never gets old, the way the blood splatters and how pieces of flesh fly everywhere are great touches.  For the most part the game looks good and you can really immerse yourself in the island of Banoi quite easily. Weapons look like you would expect them too; it’s also nice to see the wear and tear the more you use them. Bats start cracking, knifes look rusted, sickles start to bend its great. Also seeing your weapons change as you upgrade them and customize them are a nice touch as well. The fire effects from Molotov cocktails and exploding canister look great as well. Overall the visual aspect of the game isn’t the best, but it doesn’t take away from the experience.

Audio:

The audio department can be a bit of a hit or miss in some areas. While the voice acting is done rather well, the cheesy one liners and pleas from some of the other survivors are sometimes quite laughable. The zombies sound great and the ambiences make you really feel like you’re stuck on an island that is infested with the undead. You can literally hear a zombie around the corner moaning and groaning while they wait to attack. The character you play as don’t sound bad at all, but can get cheesy too with how they are feeling about the current situation. Unfortunately the cheesy one liners get repeated quite often as you explore the island.  For the most part the audio in Dead Island does a good job immersing you into the game.

Overall:

Dead Island is a pretty good game with a lot going for it. The 4 player co-op is a lot of fun, and the single player is just as good. The RPG elements that of Boarderlands with skill trees, weapon customization, and leveling up are all represented well here in Dead Island. The game clocks in at well over 40 hours, and the each character plays so differently that you can essentially play through 4 different times. This game remains fun from chapter 1 until the very end. Dead Island is a huge success over Techland’s latest Call of Juarez:  The Cartel. Anyone thinking about playing Dead Island will be happy to know that you can enjoy it solo or with friends and there is a character for every play style.

DiRT 3 Review

By: Cinderkin May 25, 2011 | 5 Comments

DiRT 3 is here, but is it worth the money? Has Codemasters made a great game or is this another washed up sequel? Find out in the Gouki.com Exclusive Review.

It’s time to get DiRTy! Codemasters is back with the third rendition of the DiRT series. This series has been one of the best in the racing genre. Can DiRT 3 bring the fun that was in the first 2 or have we seen all that DiRT has to offer? Find out below.

 

DiRT Tour (Career):

The career mode in DiRT is called the DiRT Tour, and is a pretty impressive mode. You begin by creating your racing profile, with a name, nationality, and nickname. Then you’re thrown into your first event. This is good, but there is no beginning tutorial to help you get into things. Before each event you have the option to tweak some settings like difficulty, assists, and other options. There are a total of four seasons in the DiRT Tour, with four competitions in each season, with 6 events in each. There are a ton of events to be had here. Each event ranges from different disciplines such as Rally, Rally Cross, Land Rush, Head 2 Head, Gymkhana Events and DC Challenges. This offers a great variety and keeps the game from getting stale. DC Challenges and Gymkhana Events are new to the DiRT series, bringing a fun and challenging experience to the basic racing modes. In DC challenges you are asked to perform certain tricks to score points, these tricks range from jumps, drifts, spins, and donuts. Gymkhana Events bring all of these tricks together to in one large trick demo. These additions to the series are welcome, and I look forward to seeing more in the future. As you progress in DiRT Tour you gain Rider Rep or XP which allows for more teams to give you cars to race in events. Each car also has its own challenges to build Rep. DiRT Tour is hours of fun, and is one of the best career modes in a racing game.

Game Modes:

There are a ton of game modes in DiRT 3, ranging from single player, local split screen, and online multi player. Other than career mode for single player there is Time Trials and Single Race events, letting you choose your favorite tracks and trying to either beat your best times or race against the AI. Local play is actually a pretty big component in DiRT 3. You have split screen options that let you set individual or team events, rounds, and all of the disciplines. There is even a Joyride option, and the ability to save settings for future races. The online component is great as well; you have options to race against other opponents in Pro Tour, and Jam Sessions. Pro Tour is your general Ranked matches where you choose a discipline and race. Jam Sessions are Player matches where you can invite your friends to play through the various disciplines. There also some Party Play options online as well. For the first time in the series players can upload 30 second clips straight to their Youtube accounts. This is a pretty cool feature, but the only problem is it takes a pretty long time to upload, and you can’t save a replay to upload later. Replays must be uploaded at the end of a race, meaning a lot of times most will just skip this feature. Overall DiRT 3 has a ton of game modes for anyone to enjoy.

Visuals:

DiRT 3 looks amazing. The landscapes look great, and each has its own distinct feel to it. From Kenya to Aspen and Finland to Michigan each track breathes life into the game. The rain effects, the snow, day, and night all have its own feel to it. The only thing missing in that aspect is the tracks showing where cars have been and wear and tear on the tracks. The cars look great as well; the details are nice with dirt covering the cars after races. The cockpit view is the most impressive in than in any other game, when the rain hits the windshield and the wipers come on it adds realism to the game. Crashing the vehicles look great as well with bits and pieces flying everywhere and cars becoming more compact with each head on collision. DiRT 3 covers the visual department very nicely.

Audio:

The audio is to be expected in DiRT 3, it’s good, but not great. The music tracks are nice, but there are so few you hear the same ones a lot. There is also the problem with music only being in the menus, and during replays. While this isn’t horrible it would have been nice to have an option to listen to music while racing. The engine sounds are a nice touch, but it’s hard to tell the difference between most vehicles. Your co-driver in Rally events get the job done, detailing when a turn or jump is coming up, but again the option to turn that off would have been nice. DiRT 3 covers the basis in the audio department, but lacks in this area where the rest of the game really shines.

Online:

The online experience will definitely keep the life and replay value of DiRT 3 alive. It’s done very well. Pro Tour mode is very easy to get into, but just like DiRT 2 there is no real matchmaking option. You just get thrown to the wolves, and new players will be turned away by racing constantly against high level players. There is however a hardcore option which forces players to the cockpit view with no assists or hud. I find this to be a ton of fun. Where online shines the most is in the Jam Sessions. Grab a group of friends and set the parameters however you like, and if you’re tired of the basic racing events then you can jump into Party Play at any time. You could easily hours in the playing online because they have added some really cool and new types of events. There is Invasion, where players have to smash into robot cardboard cutouts that randomly appear on the tracks.  Outbreak is like a zombie type mode, where one player chases down everyone and tries to ram them, added them to the infection until no one is left. The best mode by far is Transporter which is essentially Capture the Flag. Transporter becomes one of the most hectic events with cars smashing into each other to claim the flag, as well as placing the flags in places not that easy to acquire. It’s a lot of fun. The online has something for everyone, and it will keep you coming back for a long time.

DiRT 3 is a big step in the right direction for the series, as it’s one of the best racers available now. I can’t stress this enough that if you’re a fan of racing, dirt, or just fun you’ll have a great time with DiRT3

 

Bottom Line: BUY IT!

Launching today on Xbox LIVE® Marketplace is the official Divinity II: The Dragon Knight Saga demo, which offers fans a taste of the game's 100-plus hours of action RPG combat and exploration.

The demo released today takes players through the game's introduction, offering a sizeable portion of Rivellon's Broken Valley to explore. While the demo's handful of hours pale in comparison to the 100+ hours of action RPG excitement in the full game, there are plenty of quests to discover and complete, NPCs to interact with, merchants with whom to barter, and of course, monsters to slay. The demo serves as a balanced overture for curious fans and series newcomers, concluding just as it lets gamers transform into a dragon for the first time and rise into the skies of Rivellon.

Also releasing today is the game's trailer, offering a better sense of the dark cloud of conflict that looms over the realm of Rivellon, not to mention capturing the thrill of taking to the skies as an enormous dragon. 

Lastly, sample pages from The Art of Divinity II: The Dragon Knight Saga, the game's pre-order bonus art book, are now available
