A sneak peak into the mind of a Marvel vs Capcom competitor.
Oh hi there. My name is Damien Rodwell Jenkins aka dancegrenade, I play Marvel vs Capcom 3 professionaly and Team Tentacle Rape is who i run with. LMFAO i wanna say that in a interview in the future or something. For real though i plan to put a lot of energy to Marvel and see how far it can take me, while still having fun and enjoying life in the process.
I love all fighters, but the only ones i ever really tried to learn and get good at were, Third Strike, Blazeblu, Garou Mark of the Wolves, Super Smash Brothers Brawl (only cause of Solid Snake i promise you this D:) and Vanilla Street Fighter IV. I played Marvel vs Capcom 2 and loved it but i got really intimated watching all the higher level players do shit i couldnt even comprehend. So i chose to sit back and watch and learned pretty much all i needed to know to understand what the heck was going on screen. Third Strike is probably my favorite out of all the games i mentioned. I just really loved Urien as a character and the way he was played. Aegis Reflector has to be coolest fucking thing in the Street Fighter universe. You get to be really creative with it and do really fancy and also viable bullshit all freaking day! I really love evil characters as well, who say really bad ass things that would just be out of control to say to anybody.
I could go on and on of why i love Marvel so much. Crossovers are always pretty fucking dope, and mixing these crazy epic individuals to form teams to fight amongst each other is just over the top and possibly one of the greatest ideas ever thought of. The hype this game generates when you see players do epic shit is on a whole new level of euphoria, and needs to be appreciated and recognized. I plan to make people say "Dude this guy is really fucking good" when they see me rape with Team Tentacle Rape! Well i am still not sure of the team name, but i do know who the team will consist of. Jill Valentine, Sentinel, and Shuma Gorath.
Jill Valentine has always been sick to me since Resident Evil 3. Anyone who survives a zombie apocalypse is pretty dope in my book. On top of that, she is a part of S.T.A.R.S which is tight as fuck. She is pretty hott as well so that kinda works too. Nah but really i love humans with no super powers that kick ass, especially those that are experts at survival.
Sentinel has always just been an awesome character and i really love the idea of like controlling a giant robot that specializes in killing people who were born with super natural abilities and such. Also i like the idea of having a tank on my team who can absorb some damage while dealing some.
Shuma Gorath is just pure awesome. Anyone who wants to know his orgins and what not should wiki him or something i can't explain in words how awesome i think he is. Just the idea that this super powerful being is just a big eye ball with tentacles and can shape shift and do all these other unimaginable things just makes me graviate to learning such a unique character.
I plan to use each of these characters at max potential, and given that each of these characters are really unique and have lots to bring to the table, i shall have some awesome results. Getting in the lab with these 3 characters is all i dream about. I don't know how exactly these characters will compliment each other, but i have such a strong a feeling i will be satisfied and make it work. Jills speed, Sentinels Defense, and Shumas Power will take me to victory.
Too bad i have to wait till March to try out Shuma and Jill. That's okay cause that gives me time to learn a little about th e rest of the cast so i won't be as surprised with certain matchups and i can use this knowledge to greatly increase my teams strength.
Anyone who doesnt have a clue what I am talking about should check out this video
Well goodluck to everyone who is buying this game and plans on competing. Hope to see you at future tournaments!
P.S Leave some comments on what teams you will be using and why! Always nice to hear thoughts from other people.
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.

Gouki.com caught up with Justin Wong and EG MaRN at CES this past Friday in a exclusive interview. They were asked about their dream characters, who they are using in MvC3 and what went down at the secret fight club from Thursday night.
Big thanks to Justin Wong and EG MaRN for giving us their time at CES over the weekend. The Gouki.com seven footer Cinderkin spotted Justin and Marn, chased them down and backed them up against the wall for an exclusive interview. Both Justin and Marn were super cool and answered questions about who they are using in Marvel VS Capcom 3. How the game played at Thursday nights secret fight club. Both gave a really cool quick promo for the Gouki.com Marvel Vs Capcom 3 giveaway. Thanks a lot for the interview guys.

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!

This is a piece I designed for the Jimmy Gouki.com mascot.
I am now officially the first to enter my art on redesigning the Jimmy mascot. I may or may not do some revision, if time should allow me to.
But hopefully I will be able to make some more of the Jimmy mascot designs throughout this month. -smiles-
ENJOY EVERYONE! Wish me luck. <3

I'm really excited for this game (which I seriously cannot wait to play!). I would love to give out my opinion about the game like I did for Dead Or Alive: Dimensions, but I can't since I've taken notice that some people had snagged a copy before it's release (don't know HOW they managed to find it, unless they had some contact from CAPCOM themselves. @[email protected]). Well all I can do is pray, have faith and wait with pure luck to win the MVC3 special edition giveaway hosted by goukijones. Once I get myself that game, I will give in my opinion/review on it on my next blog. ^_^
And so... I came across my sister's status on Facebook yesterday, titled "Marvel VS Capcom 3? :)" The comments I saw by guy A (will not mention any names) that he posted for her status just left me appalled. Already he got a chance to play it and he's already giving a rather bad review about it. Then, guy B defended the game in the argument saying something along the lines "perhaps you haven't gotten through much of the game so you gave up." But then, Guy A said simply: "It's just like Marvel 2, it's horrible & unbalanced. To put it simply, it just plain sucks." Well I guess some people enjoy spitting out negativity all across the planet. And he also ended it with "Don't play Phoenix, she's someone a noob would pick. She's just that cheap."
Well I don't know about him, but I wonder what you guys think. Is he telling the truth? Is MVC3 just like MVC2? I don't want to believe that. And is Phoenix that powerful like Seth from SF4/SSF4 crazy?
Some how TopTierGaming has a copy of Marvel vs Capcom 3. They showed the case and comic book and now they are doing a live stream of the game. Check it out!

Yakuza 4 just got way more interesting. This story was originally for a new video from Sega about the Hostess Clubs in the game. It's turned into a monster about these beautiful Japanese girls, who are the stars of Yakuza 4 Hostess Clubs.
I saw this video this morning on YouTube and of course Japanese girls catch my attention in real life and virtually. So I have to check it out. First of all, the Yakuza game series is one I have yet to experience. I don't know why, maybe just never had the right feeling for it. The new version is looking more and more interesting to me. And not just because I can now go hang out in a Authentic -albeit virtual- Japanese Hostess Club. Yakuza 4 is seriously trying to be a Japanese style GTA.
This first video is from the American Sega YouTube channel.

The 3DS is a beast!!
What up you Jimmies? Rei here with your Nintendo news! Any news! So listen, read, up!
First thing first, this will change the way we handheld games(both better and worse lol)! The 3DS will have eight games at the launch, in Japan, and here they are with their yen value and my assumtion value of it;
Nintendogs & Cats ¥4,800 (+$50)
Winning Eleven Soccer 3D ¥5,800 (+$60)
Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition ¥4,800 (+$50)
Samurai Warriors: Chronicle ¥6,090 (+$65)
Puzzle Bobble 3D ¥4,980 (+$55)
Ridge Racer 3D ¥6,090 (+$65)
Battle of the Giants: Dinosaurs 3D ¥5,040 (+$52)
Professor Layton and the Mask of Miracle ¥5,980 (+$62)
And what a line up! Ridge Racer 3D and Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition will be my pick. So you might be asking, "Jimmy! How much ya nub?!" Well, with no pinpoint price, I'm calling it at $250. Yup.
But let's be realistic. The Yen is stronger than the dollar, so those games would really cost between $30 and $40. And with the system at your hands, you can play a max of 8hrs with no 3D on and low light.... But it's "3D" so around 4hrs max. Not bad but could've been WWWAAAYYYY better. Just take a look at both Resident Evil: The Mercenaries and Dead or Alive Dimension respectfully;
With graphic that look GREAT on a handheld, this little monster will be a force to be dealt with! Just watch this small preview of their expected line up!
The 3DS will also have eight, 8, gigs of cartridge! That's more than SIX, 6, times the amount of umd from the PSP(1.8gigs)! Oh yeah! Graphics and gameplay in the palm of your hand!
But if you don't like those choices of games, you can download old classic game too! Just like that dusty Wii you have being used as a night stand, it can download games from the Gameboy and Gameboy Color catalog! That way, you can see how far we have came....
Take a look at some sexy pictures too!
So, are you guys excited too? Let us know, down below!
The next XBOX won't be showing up for a while, but that hasn't stopped people from guessing what it might be called.
6. XBOX 362 (or 360-2)
Why it's believed: It's a sequel so it's got a two after it (or added to it)
Why it won't happen: Technically it would be the third XBOX, but 363 would be really confusing. Also, this is a terrible name for a product either way you write it.
