Nintendo stood it's grow again for another year!
Nintendo's press conference 2010 was something to look forward to.
With some nintendo news under rap, what can you expect for the company?
Well, Golden Sun: Dark Dawn, Kirby: Epic Yarn, Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Metriod: Other M, Donkey Kong Country: Returns, GoldenEye 007, Kid Icarus: UpRising and Epic Mickey!
Nintendo started the key note with a demo of Zelda and finished with the NEW 3DS! The Wii is maintaining its speed with games, and with it's handheld.
I was hoping that they would talk about the Wii HD/2, but I can only dream.
The new Zelda was demoed and it was a great start. They talked about bring back classics and that's what they did! All the game showed at the conference were unique and different! From the Kirby game to the Zelda one, they stand out like the hall mark of Nintendo.
The 3DS seems a bit bigger and the top screen to. I'm wondering if that will pixalate the original games being played with the 3DS. Even so, Nintendo did not mention the Vitallity sensor... Oh well.
With majority of these game being released this hoilday season and a few next year, Nintendo plans to bank on us. SOLD!!
A couple of jimmys got a behind closed doors demo of 2K's new squad based 3rd person shooter...
Spec Ops: The Line was demoed for us today, here's some initial thoughts.
The game takes place in near-future Dubai that has been covered meters deep in sand and nearly abandoned. The unique setting provides some great opportunities for spectacular level design. We only saw half a level, so I can't say if the game will live up to that promise, but the visuals I did see were quite good especially considering that this was a very early build (The Line is scheduled for a 2011 release). With the arterial spatter and the corpses being devoured by crows, this is an M-rated title for sure.
The sand plays an important role, as it allows you to use the environment to your advantage, either by destroying a wall and dumping tons of sand (tons!) on your enemies or blowing up a window allowing sand into the building you are trying to find a way out of and using said sand as stairs.
You play as the captain and roll with two jimmys beside you that you can issue commands to, but the AI seems to do pretty well on its own already. This is where the biggest dissapointment came in; even though this is a squad based shooter, there will be no co-op in the campaign. (Though there will be a separate co-op "experience" that the developers were not ready to take the wraps off of yet.) Seriously though, I know not every game can be co-op through the story, but a squad based shooter is just such a natural fit for that, I guess I just expect it now and am dissapointed when I don't see it.
Stay tuned as this game gets closer to release, I see some potential here if the multiplayer comes through.

If it’s not one thing it’s another. Gouki.com is very excited for attending E3 as a member of the media for the very first time.
12:15am Day 0 of E3 2010. Today I woke up with an extremely heavy head. I rolled downstairs and got into a taxi and explained to the driver that I must get to the convention center as soon as possible. I just poured a little/lot of Jack into a can of coke I’m drinking. I watched the Microsoft press conference today from the E3 media lounge. The signal was really hard to get a hold of and I actually saw less than half of it. What I got from what I saw is … Cut anything will pwn!. Half of the Microsoft press conference involved games that require me to stand up and not hold anything, just flail myself in different ways at the screen. The animal one (Kenictmals) does look interesting to me. If I could just turn on a rhino to hang out on my TV and if I waived my hands at it to have in ram the screen or do some flips. I still say a real tiger should have come out and attacked the little girl. Halo Reach, again. Yes yes, I want to play I will be at the store, in line, before midnight waiting for it to be released. Don’t be a Jimmy.
Did I tell you about how fnjimmy pissed himself. I throw my hand up. Because telling this story is so absurd to me. The story is all facts and I have a hard time telling it truthfully. Have another drink. At dinner we ate a Irish bar on Figueroa St. in downtown L.A. Jimmy had two beers. Jimmy pissed right before we left the bar. Two blocks later the man is bent over in what he exclaims is excruciating pain.
Real time break. Jimmy was just bent over in my room picking his feet. I kicked the man out. Stay tuned for the continuation of the pee pants story. I apologize.
Let’s talk about games. Have another drink walk around. 12:39 in the hotel room. Wtf. More CG for The Old Republic. New Need for Speed is Burnout 3. Ubisoft’s press conference sounded terrible. I was watching the A-Team. Sounds like I made the right decision. Looked at the Activsion pwnfest that was taking place inside the Staples center and shook my fist! I said to myself I’m gonna get shit faced when they let me in there. Day 1! Very excited to play some new games. What is up with Marvel vs Capcom 3 Jimmy?!

BatRastered quote of the day: Network fail.
a quick outline of the plan for E3 2010
We will arrive in Los Angeles June 13th and set up command base alpha. Staff members attending E3 2010 are goukijones batrastered reipuerto and of course fnjimmy as Gouki. The Microsoft press conference will be taking place on Monday June 14th. Project Natal is certain to be the talk of the show. Remember last year? Nintendo's press conference ran long and there was nobody in the Sony auditorium, classic. Well same plan this year. Nintendo 9am and Sony 11am on June 15th. Is Nintendo over saturated for the hardcore gamers or will Metroid Other M and the new Zelda keep me interested? What about Sony and the Move? I don't want to say anything negative in this story ...
Also new this year, Staff picks. Each gouki.com staff member will select their own best of's ...
Best Booth Babe
Pictures of the event will be done by reipuerto . Daily mini-vlogs from goukijones. batrastered with behind closed doors audio files. Exclusive satellite reporting from crimsonrelic. fnjimmy will bring to life his mystery meat.[secret content]
We're going to be checking out some of the arcades in Los Angeles that I've been hearing about and see if I can't get my ass kicked in Super Street Fighter IV by some pros.
Gouki.com Fan Festival Thursday June 17th.
More information on the way ...
GoukiJones and I paid a visit to Valve’s meeting room at E3 to take a peek at Portal 2
Goukijones and I paid a visit to Valve’s meeting room at E3 to take a peek at Portal 2. The game was not playable, it was demoed as a Blu-ray video, so don't expect this to be released anytime soon. Valve has only said "some time in 2011".
Valve showed us several new pieces of Aperture Science equipment:
- Excursion Funnels are liquid tunnels that can carry you or any cubes you may need either horizontally or vertically and can be redirected through a portal.
- Aerial Fiath Plates are sections that launch you (or a storage cube) across the room in a certain direction.
- The Thermal Discouragement Beam is a laser that can either take out a turret or activate certain switches, it can be redirected through a portal or with a Weighted Pivot Cube (basically a mirrored storage cube).
- Pneumatic Diversity Vent is a tube that sucks up anything underneath it, you can as expected drop a portal underneath and use the other end of the portal to remove any obstacles in your way.
- Propulsion Gel is an orange goo that, when spread on the floor, allows you to travel much faster than usual.
- Repulsion Gel is a blue goo that you will bounce off of (much higher than a jump).
There were some funny notes in the instructional slides shown before the demos of the different equipment. You can see that the humor of the original game is very much present in the sequel, even at this early stage. Here's the text in case you can't read it in the youtube video.
Excursion Funnels – are part of an investigation into how well test subjects can solve problems while travelling through a churning funnel of liquid asbestos. Results so far have been highly informative: They cannot.
Aerial Faith Plate – are part of a larger trust experiment designed to help the enrichment center discover whether the capacity for trust is effected by being catapulted into space.
Propulsion Gel – Designed as a diet aid and marketed under the name “Propulsion Pudding”, this sweet, largely non-toxic liquid form of fiberglass insulation increased the velocity of any food that followed it through the digestive tract, leaving the body no time to absorb calories. Propulsion Pudding was pulled from the shelves when it was discovered that digestion plays several crucial roles in the eating process, such as breaking down food into small, manageable chunks before it is violently expelled from the human body.
Repulsion Gel – Apeture’s second attempt at a dietetic pudding substitute resulted in Repulsion Gel, a much sweeter, slightly less non-toxic form of fiberglass insulation that caused subsequently ingested food items to bounce off the lining of the dieter’s distended stomach and out his or her mouth. For various reasons, this was also pulled from the shelves.
My top 10 games I'm hoping to play... well, at least see at this year's E3 convention.
- Portal 2, Multiplatform
- Star Wars: The Old Republic, PC
- Batman: Arkham Asylum 2, Multiplatform
- Halo: Reach, XBox 360
- MvC3, Multiplatform
- Fallout: New Vegas, Multiplatform
- Star Wars: The Force Unleashed 2, Multiplatform
- Metroid: Other M, Wii
- Fable 3, XBox 360
- Medal of Honor, Multiplatform
Are there any big PS3 exclusives? Don't give me that Grand Turismo 5 shit either, first of all I've seen that at the last 5 E3s and secondly it's bullshit, it's cars.
Of course, I should mention the true number 1 game I really want to see is any game that hasn't been announced yet, as that's kinda the point of E3.
...there isn't anything I want to say right now...
Well here is what I am looking forward to E3. This story will be short for the fact that there isn't anything I want to say right now but I hope to see alot of surprices over there one in my mind is Kindom Hearts 3, I think now is a good time for Sony to pull this one out of their hats, I don't really care about this new magic wand type controller, they need to start thinking more original ideals. Nintendo got the Other M which is made by the people who made the Ninja Gaiden series. That's all I'm going to say so hopfully my story after E3 will be one or two Holy Shitballs this is going to be a great game, but will see after next week peace.

Seriously, giant enemy crab!!
Hey you know me. I'm much better talking into the camera with a giant grin on my face after I just played one of my most highlt exciting for games. Better this than me trying to write what I remember a week later.
GoldenEye007 is a game developed by Eurocom and published by Activision and is a Wii exclusive that is scheduled to be released this holiday season
With the classic gameplay, all these first person shooters are trying to replicate, GoldenEye for the N64 will always imitated but never be duplicated. The story line, that wasn't afraid to deviate from the movie, single player gameplay and most importantly, the multi-player experience, will never be retold, until now!
The build I was able to play, was in the multi-player mode. Eight character you can choose from including Odd Job, the smug bastard that would throw his top hat and kill you. Yeah, he's here and that's his grenade skills! With the Will in mind, they used the classic controller on this.
Check out Jimmy playing it!
The gameplay, while it may have taken a while to get use to, and the dude that was in there that played the crap out of it, is FUN! You can aim and shoot. Just put your cross hair on the guy and kill him. The level I played was a great remake of the classic, just updated to feel fresh! And they did. The new feature that is now standard in today's games, are a sprint button and aim using your iron sight. Once you get the hang of it, that guy is GONE! It's such a fun and nostalgic experience that left me wanting more.
It featured four player split screen and eight player online and features a brand new story mode It will be a must buy for the Wii and classic N64 owner.
My impressions of Sony's E3 2010 press conference inside.
Sony, Sony, Sony...whatever would we do without you?
Okay, so I'm going to jump right into it: Killzone 3. There was a demo of Killzone 3 that literally blew my mind. I enjoyed Killzone 2 immensely, and Killzone 3 just looks so much better - amazing. Sony was also really pushing the fact that Killzone 3 would have native 3D support and native Move support. Rather or not I care about either is still up in the air, but you can't deny that it's a great incentive and great features for the people that are demanding it. Killzone 3 will be released in February of 2011.
Sony talked about a few other games that would have native 3D support, including Mortal Kombat, Sly Collection, and Gran Turismo 5. Sony is really spending a lot of energy to push the 3D support on people, and I really believe that 3D is part of the future of Sony's business strategy.
Sony talked about the Move, including the release date and pricing. Sony Move will officially be released in the US on September 19, 2010. The controllers alone will retail for $49.99 for the controller plus $29.99 for the navigator controller. There will also be a bundle including a Move-based sports game for $99.99; the hundred dollar bundle will be packed in with a PS3 for $399.99.
Sony showed off a few Move-based games, but it wasn't as much of a focus as I expected. The first game they showed was Sorcery, which looked like it could be quite an interesting premise if it's executed as well as it looked on the stage. The move controller functionality looked really good and responsive. The game had sort of a darker Harry Potter feel to it, but at the same time it really did look like it could be a lot of fun to play. Sorcery will come out in the spring of 2011.
Next up EA showed off Tiger Woods 2011 using the Move. It looks like a more accurate version of the Wii, which I guess is good if you're in the mood for that sort of thing. The thing that I noticed that I thought was a big deal was that there was a lot of lag between the swing and the game responding to it. I wasn't quite impressed by the technology here, but it's still early, and I'm sure it'll be fixed. The Move support will be released via a downloadable update in the fall of 2010.
Next Sony showed a trailer for Heroes on the Move. This game is like an amazing mash-up of Sony's best platforming properties: Sly Cooper and Bentley, Jak and Daxter, and Rathet and Clank. The trailer looks like this could be an awesome platforming experience mashing up Sony's best-known mascots. I am pretty sure - as the name seems to imply - that this game will be fully Move-optimized, although support for traditional play is apparently unknown at this point.
Next there was God of War: Ghosts of Sparta. This looks like it will be a much-improved version of Chains of Olympus - which was in itself quite a good game. I'm pretty pumped about this game for two reasons. One: because it's nice to have a PSP game I can be excited about; two: because it looks like it's pushing the PSP to its limits. I think this will be an amazing game when it comes out in fall of 2010.
*Insert break here* (I went to shower...sue me.)
I come back in time to catch Sony talking about Little Big Planet 2. As you probably know, Little Big Planet built a great foundation and then allowed the players to build most of the experience. I have a small problem with this style of game philosophy in that most of us just aren't game designers. But for those of us that are, Media Molecule is claiming that you can now create games from different genres instead of just making platforming levels. The trailer for the game looks like there is tons of creativity going into this game, and even the levels in the box appear to be varied and unique and fun.
Sony then had Electronic Arts talk about some content on a couple upcoming games that will be exclusive to the Playstation 3. Medal of Honor will come complete with a remastered, high def version of Medal of Honor Frontlines; Dead Space 2 will come with a Move-optimized version of Dead Space Extraction. Additionally Sony announced that other games like Mafia 2 and Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood will also have Playstation 3 exclusive content.
And who would come on stage? Gabe Newell. Yes, that's right; Gabe Newell - the guy that talked all kinds of trash about the Playstation 3 a while back. He came out to announce that Portal 2 will come to the Playstation 3 on top of the previously known platforms. Then they showed a trailer for Portal 2 that I thought was amazing. I really want this game to come out. The game will come out sometime in 2011.
After that we got to see a new Final Fantasy XIV (yeah, that's the one that's online - no, that was Final Fantasy XI; this is the new one that's going to be online) trailer, and it looked amazing. I mean, it might not be The Old Republic amazing - but it will definitely be interesting to anyone that cares at all about Final Fantasy (like myself!).
Next was the new Gran Turismo 5 trailer. The graphics in this game look to be ground-breaking. I mean - wow. I think that there are points where I wouldn't know the difference between Gran Turismo 5 and real life; it's that amazing. I don't even care a bit about racing games, but this is something that has me blown away. And the best part - there's a release date finally: November 2. Yes, that's November 2 of 2010.
The next announcement was Infamous 2. I was a huge fan of the original Infamous; I thought it made the sandbox experience really fun and interesting, and to make things better it gave you powers to use while running around - and it was indeed a blast to play. But the trailer for Infamous 2....wow, this really looks like Sucker Punch is one-upping themselves here. Not only are the visuals here really great for a sandbox experience, but the trailer boasts what should be some really interesting gameplay additions - like being able to charge up melee weapons with lighting. It also looks like Infamous 2 will have a much more varied and interesting level design between the different districts. Infamous 2 will be out in 2011. (Oh yeah, and if you're interested then you can learn more; Infamous 2 is the cover story of the new Game Informer magazine.)
Last but not least...something I thought I'd never see again...something that I thought had just sort of fallen off the map: Twisted Metal. And this wasn't just a trailer (well there was a trailer, but it was just sort of uninteresting), but there was also a full-fledged multiplayer demo. The gameplay here - it looks something like Twisted Metal Black; the design has that dark and gritty feel to it. I've got to admit: I'd like to see Twisted Metal come back with the campy vibe of Twisted Metal 2, but that's not to imply that this is losing anything by being like Twisted Metal Black. In fact it looks great; it just looks...sort of like it blends in to all the other brown and black games we're seeing so much of lately. Oh well, it's Twisted Metal - and Twisted Metal is awesome. It will come out sometime in 2011.
So there you go. All the conferences are over - but the expo is just beginning. We've got people on the show floor, so keep hitting F5, because we're bringing all the best from E3 here at Gouki.
