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.

Borderlands 2 Pro-Tip: How to glitch and beat Pete the Invincible

By: Arthvader Jan 20, 2013 | 4 Comments | Updated: Jan 21, 2013

Goukijones, Batrasterd, and I take on Pete the Invincible using a glitch to our advantage.

On Wednesday, January 16, Goukijones, Batrasterd, and I went and took on the raid boss of Mr. Tourge's Campaign of Carnage, Pete the Invincible. During the course of this particular fight, though, we ended up getting Pete into a spot where he essentially got stuck, allowing us to defeat him without much issue.

This is the most start and stop farming we've ever done in any game together.

Borderlands 2 Uranus

We've been farming Uranus for the last 3 days.  At one point we did 8 hours straight in this boss fight.  That's how we got the Pearl Rocket Launcher, Corrosive Conference Call and Corrosive Gatling Gun.  I'm also using an Explosive Fastball Grenade and Grrrty is using a Slagged Magic Missile Grenade.  I think we need to get her using the Fastball during this fight, he doesn’t seem to take slag damage.  Plus Axton’s turrets are out almost the entire time and they have the slag gun attached to it. 

Check out our Borderlands stream on GoukiTV.  We’ve streamed every moment of our gameplay from Borderlands GOTY Edition and Borderlands 2.  Next up… the Pre-Sequel.

KOF XIII Max Cancel Combo

By: blazemanx Jul 14, 2011 | 5 Comments

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.

Gran Turismo 5 VS Need for Speed Hot Pursuit

By: goukijones Nov 26, 2010 | 18 Comments

So for the thanksgiving I visited with family and friends. I also brought along Gran Turismo 5 and Need for Speed Hot Pursuit. Of course my friend grabbed the Gran Turismo 5 first, but what happened next is unbelievable.

I guess you can say this was an intended experiment to see what my friend thought of these two brand new racing games. Gran Turismo 5 was still in the shrink wrap when I brought it over. I had already played the crap out of Need for Speed Hot Pursuit and it's no secret that I love it. They writin' stories about my record times on the internet.

My friend immediately grabbed for the Gran Turismo 5, unwrapped it and put it in his Playstation 3. Of course we had to do a system update and an install. It's the Playstation what did you expect I told him. Reports on the internet was that there is a 45+ minute install time for GT5. Luckily we were distracted by family, football, alcohol and turkey. After the install I grabbed the remote and started to look through the menus. I just wanted a quick race so I can see it. I've been waiting for such a long time for this game and the internet has been an unstoppable buzz machine about everything GT5. Well I couldn't just race, I had to do a license test first. First license braking challenge. Ok seems simple enough. The countdown begins and then I'm off down the straight away. There is a giant checkered board at the end of the track, I guess gotta stop there. No problem. Perfect. Wait what? Failed? Aw fuck. I was called for the official turkey dinner start and left the game running right where I failed to brake. I was in shock that I failed the braking test.

After the meal I headed back into the game room and found my friend all up in the Gran Turismo 5. He was still trying to get a license so we could get into a real race. After each attempt at a challenge he handed me the remote and asked if I'd like to play. I respectfully declined. Watching was more than enough for me. 30 minutes later we had a license and entered a race. I still haven't seen anything really special, the game appears to be extremely in-depth and that kind of interests me. I watched my friend do one race and then it was my turn. After playing so much Need for Speed Hot Pursuit there was nothing special about driving a shit car in GT5 at 55 MPH. I was extremely bored with that type of racing. I imagine it would get better with more gameplay and more cars unlocked, but we didn't have time for that and I really wanted him to see the other game I brought at this point.

Finally we put in the Need for Speed Hot Pursuit into his Xbox 360. Within 3 minutes he was already racing. Then as the map began to open up and he unlocked more cop and racer events, it was clear to me we had a winner. He dropped subtle hints to his wife that he needed this game asap or a divorce was imminent. The funny thing about all of this to me is that my friend never asked me once if I wanted to play the Need for Speed, like he did in-between every GT5 load screen.

Gran Turismo 5 is a simulation. A serious simulation of a race car driver who must buy his own car collection, earn his own licenses and level up like an RPG. Need for Speed Hot Pursuit is a straight up arcade racer that puts you into high speed racing action right away. I don't have an official opinion on Gran Turismo 5, but I'm sure I'll play it eventually ... if I can ever get off of Need for Speed and trying to beat all of my friends times on the speed wall. Thanks for reading.

GoukiJones Blithering Blathering about his experience with SFxT so far. Are the stages beautiful or a just a beautiful distraction? Is it possible that the Tekken characters themselves are the best thing about this game? Will gems be banned at EVO?

SFxT The Good, The Bad, and the Gutter Trash. Review from GoukiJones.

Street Fighter X Tekken has 19 Street Fighters including Street Fighter Alpha classic Rolento, Street Fighter III's big German Hugo and his partner in crime from back in the Final Fight days, Poison. It's a man baby. Tekken has 19 characters as well, but I'm sorry I can't tell you from which Tekken game in the series they come from. I played the crap out of Tekken 2, one of my favorite games of all time, I had it memorized completely, I knew the 10 hits for every character and King was my favorite. That's all I got to say about my history with Tekken.

Let me begin with the Tekken characters in SFxT. The Tekken characters are my favorite part of the game. I wanted to try Poison of course. I didn't like using her or him. My bad. Rolento I banned personally because FGC was already saying he was top tier and over-powered. So I figured I didn't want use a character that EVERYONE else was going to be using. King was in for sure, I love the grappling. King and Hugo that was my Dream Team when I first saw the entire roster. Hugo is one of my guys in SFIII I liked to use and he is another grappler so I figured they would be cool together. I used Hugo for the first day and dropped him. I switched to Lili who I now I officially second main. Does that make sense? [smh] I tried to use Hugo again after I saw some PWNn with him at a tournament. I couldn't replicate a thing I saw in that tournament. So back to Lili.

Playing with King is super fun. Although Tekken vintage 10 hit combos are absent -I don't know why- King still has a lot grabs and his super can be modified. Remember his chain throwing? Yeah there's only one option for that during his super. He also has a rising knee, which is up-forward and medium kick. Timed properly you can chain some amazing combos. He has unblockable grabs whether your opponent is standing our crouching also a Moonsault that is super slow, but could be a good mix-up. With Lili I'm still learning her basics and what to do with her. I enjoy learning these new characters and  the "Street Fighter style" Tekken characters came out really nice.

As far as the Street Fighter characters go, it's a lot like SF4. If somebody was really good with Abel in SF4, they will be really good with Abel in SFxT. That aspect of the game doesn't thrill me at all, because I am terrible at SF4 and don't play it. Cammy is my main, but she is "free" most of the time. I tried Guile once in SFxT, but again, I don't like him in SF4 and I don't like him in SFxT. So in Street Fighter X Tekken I use two Tekken characters. King and Lili.

Playing online sucks. More so if you're a 360 user. Xbox 360 straight up does not have the same features as the PS3. Local co-op does not work on the Xbox 360. Local co-op or couch play is when you and your buddy play together online, at the same time, in the same room, on the same Xbox 360. Something we've experienced since Halo 2. Capcom has said 2 things about this.

1:

"PS3 version: It is possible to mix and match online and offline players for scramble battles and pair play battles. Two local players can play on the same PS3 using 1 PSN ID, and play against other players online.

360 version: It is NOT possible to mix and match online and offline players for scramble battles and pair play battles. So you either have to have all players be offline and local (so 4 players, 1 Xbox) or have all the players be online (4 players, 4 Xboxes)."

Source.

2:

"Unfortunately, due to time and resource issues, we weren’t able to get that feature into the Xbox 360 version and we apologize to those players who were looking forward to it. "

Source.

I don't know which of the 2 are worse. "It is NOT possible to mix and match online and offline players." Halo 2.

The second reason says they just didn't have enough time. Nothing to do with not knowing how. I'll tell you one thing, Capcom had plenty of time and the know how of how to put a bunch of extra content on the disk that they would entend to charge us for later. So the online co-op plus the 5 exclusive characters, make the PS3 version VERY different from the Xbox version. Xbox users got gaffled this time.

Okay you don't have any friends and just play online by yourself. WARNING: the sound cuts in and out during some fights online. I noticed this when I first got it out of the box and played it for 21:07 minutes. It's a bigger deal then some might think. There are plenty of sound cues in fighting games. All of the sudden a fireball is floating across the screen. Yeah yeah, you can SEE IT, but have you SEEN some of the levels in SFxT? More on that below. So the sound issue is a little frustrating. Connection otherwise seems to be fine for the most part, unless you are fighting Arthvader.

At home with a group of friends is another story. Street Fighter X Tekken shines with 4 people in the same room, teamed up and fighting against each other. Minus the 100+ timeout endings, just waiting to be tagged in is extremely thrilling. We've played quite a few hours like this. During our most recent session we tried the scramble battle. What the fuck is happening during this? It's super fun and I could only hope that all Capcom fighting games in the future have a similar mode. Scramble mode is 2v2, everybody in at the same time. Just like a Tornado Tag Team match for my WWE marks. Or if you're old (also like me) like Ryu & Ken VS Bison from the alpha days, but Bison has a partner too. This a great group/party fighting game.

There are still a few things I don't like about SFxT. A lot of this game comes off as experimental. Like Capcom just wanted to try out a bunch of different things to see how the FGC would react. The stages for example are extravagant. A little too extravagant. If you thought UMvC3 backgrounds were flashy and have too much going on, the SFxT stages are far more out of control. In Ultimate I feel some sort of separation from the stages and my characters. In SFxT, the graphics, lighting and 3D characters in a 2D/3D environment blend perfectly. A little too perfectly. (winkface) There are some stages that we have already completely banned. The Pandora stage, with the colliding mammoths in the background -Which makes a noise when they hit, remember I mentioned noise cues earlier? You can't hear the jets flying by on Shield heli-carrier.- in round 3 on the Pandora level, Jacks and armored trucks and T-Rex's is flying around all through the background. It's bananaz. Yeah, I can't deal with that. Pit Stop 69 is also banned. By round 3 on that stage it's so dark you can't even see some characters. BatRastered says "All I see is black."

Some of our favorite levels are the Half Pipe. Can anyone tell me who the four Bison girls are on that bill board? That's a pretty simple level, the colors are normal and there isn't a bunch shit distracting you in the background. Mishima Estate makes noise, but this is because your character is stepping on roof tiles. This is actually pretty cool, stepping sound effects on different types of flooring is a cool feature for fighting games. Quick shout out to the Mad Gear Hideout. So I can stop talking about the stages, I'd like to just say to Capcom that we need more options for more laid back levels. Nothing happens on the training stage I know, but what happened to the grass fields or the sky scrapper roof tops? Keep some of them simple.

Gems what the fuck? Seriously? I didn't know what the FGC was going to think of this. My rule is, if you make something for your game and it's banned at EVO and other FGC tournaments, then you fail. It's a waste and nobody will care. It will kill your game. Like Mortal Kombat. Which I'm surprised enough people are still playing it for it to get a nod at EVO. Back to the gems deal and EVO. If the gems aren't allowed at EVO then they will have failed. The least I can see EVO doing is allowing people to choose gems from the default list. All the special edition and DLC gems will not be allowed. Which will still fall under my category of FAIL.

The gems are cool and I like the idea of having a little strategy there. Ono said this also brings to the table that Ryu VS Ryu could be completely different because of gem selection. Yeah that's a great idea ... for Darkstalkers. J/K. I mentioned earlier, SFxT could be full of experiments. The gems just aren't practical.

Now that I've blithered and blathered for some time about my experience with SFxT this last couple of weeks, lets get down to brass tacks.

  • Street Fighter X Tekken looks amazing.
  • Plays a lot like Street Fighter IV.
  • Has something very unique with the Tekken characters fighting styles in Street Fighter type gameplay.
  • Great features such as 4 people playing at the same time in a 2v2 tag situation or a 2v2 4 characters on the screen at once.
  • Tons of great characters and even more to come with DLC.

So don't be a mad when I give Street Fighter X Tekken Rent it! Especially if your only option is to get it for Xbox 360. Playstation has 5 more characters and you can play locally with your son, friend or for some of you extremely lucky Jimmys, your girlfriend/wife. So it could possibly be a Buy it! on PS3. But still, hard to tell if this game will be around next year errr what I want to say is EVO 2013. Ultimate will, SFIV will.

Try it before you buy it.

Dead or Alive Beach Volleyball 3 announced for PS3

By: dragonkiss83 Apr 1, 2012 | 1 Comments

Do you like DoA? Have a PS3? Is it hooked to a 3D tv? If so I have some good news for you.

It's been a while since the last Dead or Alive Beach Volleyball gave you jimmys carpal tunnel, but this summer you'll get another chance.

Read full story...

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.

 

Watch the #1 Fortnite PvE Duo in the WORLD!

I really wish they had spawned at the top.  I built this huge shaft/building for them to come down through and they didn't even spawn up there.  Oh well, maybe next time.  Otherwise, this defense is looking solid.

In this video, we again have trouble with them spawning in the South West corner. We didn't make a sniper tower up there and that will be the first improvement we make.

More on our Fortnite adventures to come.  We stream randomly on Gouki.tv, but I'll cut and upload the cool stuff out and put it here, on Gouki.com.
