Exclusive Gameplay footage and interview. Gouki.com wanted to tell THQ everything about what we do with SmackDown VS Raw 2011. We've got a helluva story to tell from inside the THQ booth at E3 2011 with Dev Talk about WWE '12.
Anybody that has checked out Gouki.com certainly knows we are big fans of SmackDown VS Raw and just huge wrestling fans over all. We've successfully recreated each WWE Pay-Per-View since Survivor Series 2010 with WWE SmackDown VS Raw 2011. We have simulated over 60 matches, something we refer to as the Madden Bowl of wrestling. We film the matches before the PPV and both wrestlers are AI controlled. We have downloaded, created and edited over 100 Superstars and Divas in the game.
We know what want in WWE '12 to make that aspect of the game for us even more enjoyable. Personally I say, watching the simulated matches are sometimes just as good as watching the actual live match.
Here's what happened. I had just finished my Konami "Booth Tour" with some Canadian chick with a bunch of FAQ sheets. More on that in another story. I believe BatRastered and FnJimmy we finishing up watching Aliens. I stormed the THQ booth looking to meet people I knew actually did shit there. Neal Pabon, I talked to that guy, what up to him. The press/media counter don't give a shit about nobody without an appointment. There were no goodies and the lady gave me a business card with an FTP for their media kit, when I had just saw her hand some Jimmy the full on disc version press kit.
I stumbled back over to the WWE '12 wall to see if BatRastered and FnJimmy had arrived yet. I took a drink out the flask while less people were looking and just started to play WWE '12. The first guy that came up to me didn't seem to know much of the game. When I told him what we did with it, he didn't seem to understand or maybe he didn't care. I fucked off and tried to talk to more Jimmys in suits. I couldn't find the nuab who I suspect does the Twitter account. He's given me a few shout outs and I just wanted to say thanks. No success.
Back to the WWE '12 section where I scouted out the other possible dev working the section. At E3 you really have to dig deep and ask questions, most of the time you could just be playing with a random PR guy hired that week to demo a product for you based on a script. I definitely did not want that to happen with WWE'12, I wanted to talk to somebody seriously and share my experiences with the game and offer 1 or 2 of my 100 plus suggestions. That's when I met Jason Vandiver, his business card is official and it says Designer on it.
Jason knew what was up with the game and understood what we did with it. [Spoiler Alert] I may say things that I wasn't supposed to talk about. I hope Jason doesn't get in trouble. [/Spoiler Alert]
Jason told me that there would be 2 new create a "Something." I know, not much to go on. SDvR2011 already has a lot of create a "something." FnJimmy says it could be the create a belt. I disagree, I believe one will be something like create a show. My thought is I would love to just program 6-7 matches in a row and then just watch them as the AI played it out. You can kinda set that up now, but an easier way is needed. Create a backstage promo or something, I don't know man, the game does a lot already.
Then we played a match, I chose Albero Del Rio and he drove out on stage in a fancy car. Just like the Eddie Guerrero intro FnJimmy has attached to him in our simulations. It all looked great. Jason chose Randy Orton. I don't know how to play the game and I don't know if he thought I was full of shit at this point, but I had no clue what to do with the actual controller. I just watch this game. So he beat the shit out of me and showed me one of the coolest new features.
Super wake ups. A super wake up for example is when your oppenet is on the ground, but needs to be standing for you to do your finisher. Jason leans forward and shouts "Watch this!" The game cuts away into a taunt animation and Randy Orton slams to the ground and throws his little temper tantrum. AlBerto Del Rio who is still knocked out cold in the center of the ring, shoots to his feet and Randy Orton stands up and RKO's him. Awesome. Very smooth, going to make the end of matches way more exciting.
Jason wasn't done, he picks Alberto Del Rio up again and starts beating on him and building his super bar again. This time he showed me Randy Orton's punt. I said "Something that I'd like to see is that when you select end a match with a finisher that the AI still pins, like in WWE All Stars." Jason said not to worry that was added.
BatRastered and FnJimmy finally had arrived. I pulled FnJimmy to the side and had him play the game while I filmed this off screen footage. Now THQ probably don't want me to play this, but I don't have any other gameplay footage. Both press kits I checked only had the live action Randy Orton trailer. You can see Vintage SDvR2011 AI in this clip where Randy Orton sets up Alberto Del Rio for an announcer table smash, but the Randy Orton can't grab on to do the move and, you know what, I'm not even sure which one FnJimmy was controlling. Just watch the clip.
You can hear the guy at the end of the video offer me some HD footage on a disc, it wasn't there sorry brotha. Send me some and I want another interview. Thanks.
After that part we busted out the official Gouki.com microphone and FnJimmy did his first ever official interview. With himself. Check it out.
We wrapped it up and got four amazing contacts. We love this game franchise, SDvR series is a game that makes sense to come out every year.
Thanks to Jason
Thanks to Narbeh
Thanks to Cory Ledesma
Thanks to Neal Pabon and thanks to everybody at THQ.

One of my personal most highly anticipated games right now, is inFAMOUS 2. I got a chance to sit down and play the recent demo. You know, that same one from the video that was released last week.
When I saw inFAMOUS 2 on display and playable at CES over the weekend I was ready to pound it. I love that gameplay video that was released last week. I've seen it like 5 times. I saw that the floor demo was the same thing, I knew I was gonna be able to PWN. Special thanks to Joe Castagno from Sony for being totally smooth while we filmed him talking about inFAMOUS 2. Joe knew everything about the game and was very informative.
Needless to say, demo railed. Here's the highlights:
0:15 Joe Castagno explains inFAMOUS 2
0:31 goukijones begins the gameplay demo
1:05 goukijones gets hit
1:10 goukijones asks if there is a Block or a Counter

2:08 Doesn't seem to be a smooth transisition here

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.
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!

FNJimmy once again proves he can do just about anything as he brings to life Wade Barrett in WWE Smackdown VS Raw 2011 superstar creator mode.
Learn how to make Wade Barrett from the WWE group Nexus from the Gouki.com WWE resident super fan. FNJimmy has been watching wrestling all of his life. So when we decided to recreate some matches for Survivor Series 2010 and Smackdown VS Raw 2011 didn't have Wade Barrett available, FNJimmy stepped up to the plate and created the superstar right before our eyes.
There is DLC for Smackdown VS Raw 2011 that includes Wade Barrett and it called Fan Axxess. This DLC is available now on Xbox live and PSN, however it will not unlock Wade Barrett until the "Holiday season." When we did this taping I searched high and low to find out what the details are of this DLC exactly are. After my research and digging arond the internet, I came to the conclusion that if you download the Fan Axxess DLC, you would get Wade Barratt right away. This was not the case and it doesn't really say that anywhere. It was confusing to me. Have a look at these links for yourself and tell me what you think in the comments below. The only thing I could guarantee is that we weren't going to unlock Bret Hart.
