E3 2010 Premature!

By: reipuerto May 29, 2010 | 1 Comments

Let’s start coming up!

With the Electronic Entertainment Expo, E3, right around the corner, let’s start speculating about what we’re going to hear about our favorite developers from the press conference.

Sony Now, if Sony lets Kevin Butler and Jack Tretton talk on stage, it would be insane! I enjoy Sony for being the middle man in this. They want motion control with Move, and support the gaming community, but they always slip at the last minute. If you can recall from last year, they were going to announce the PSP Go with Gran Turismo, and Little Big Planet PSP but was leaked via their Core episode four days prior their showing! That wasn’t the best move on my behalf, and the screen shots that they are releasing for KillZone 3 are, in my opinion, dumb. Why not wait for E3 and reveal your games and show of to the other companies?! Maybe I don’t see the business side to it. What I hope to see at this year’s E3 is The Last Guaridan, Gran Turismo 5, Infamous 2 or Sly Cooper 4, Final Fantasy XIV, Metal Gear Solid; Raiden/Peace Walker, SOCOM 4, Little Big Planet 2, Kingdom Hearts 3/Birth by Sleep, and God of War; Ghost of Sparta. If they demonstrate like they did two years ago with Little Big Planet, and bring the same style with Little Big Planet 2, they’ll win for creativity. I’m also expecting some strong partnerships with their only rental service like cable, or maybe the PSP2!



Microsoft One of the heavy hitters at the last few E3s. With everyone jumping on the motion controls band wagon, Project Natal will be no exception. Natal will have half of the conference, right after they tell you how much their online blows everyone out of the water. Natal will be interesting. Maybe they’ll release a PSP/DS style handled. You can dream right? Come on, don’t you want to play Gears 3 standing? Waving your hands in the air? Which leads me to the games! Let’s see if they show some trailer/gameplay to Gears of War 3, Fable 3, Halo Reach, Natal and…. Wait, what else do they have?!? Naw, but I’m sure they’re going to gave a mention to the Zune, all three of you, and more Natal features. Zzzz…

P.S. Watch this video to see Kevin Butler, KB, make fun of Project Natal.

Nintendo Last but not least, Nintendo. Let’s hear that they have games this year too. Last year was a fantastic year, compared to the previous years, so this year, they better whip it out. With the new hardware already out of the bag, the DS3D will be the talk of the show. I would honestly like to see some software for Nintendo than anything else. Golden Sun DS, Kirby(for any Wii or DSi/3D), Zelda, Metriod: Other M, Pikmn 3, F-Zero, Kid Icarus, Pokemon Black & White, Sonic Colors, Star Fox, Epic Mickey and any crazy secret game they always do. I just hope that it won’t be a sleeper from two years ago.


Third Parties These developers whore themselves out and they make money on the games we will, and, buy. Not going to the specifics on which developers I want to see show off their junk, but more important the games. Call of Duty; Black Ops, Marvel Vs. CAPCOM 3, Batman; Arkham Asylum 2, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon; Future Solider, King of Fighter XIII, Dead Space 2, Crysis 2, Castlevania; Lord of Shadow, Star Wars(All 30 of them) Naruto; Ultimate Ninja Storm 2, and Rock Band 3.

I’m sure the games, demonstration and events will be a year to remember. After all, it’s the year to stroke your hands for real gameplay. Motion control style!

And KB once again.

Final Fantasy XIV Drunken hands on

By: goukijones Jun 26, 2010 | 5 Comments

FNJimmy and I got a little private time with Final Fantasy XIV in 3D, with my best friend Jack Daniels.

FNJimmy and I got into the private hands on room of Final Fantasy XIV. I played it in 3D and let me just say it looks absolutely amazing. The problem with 3D gaming of course (and this isn’t the only time you’re going to hear me say this) I don’t want to have a $5000 dollar set up to play it. The glasses and 3D on screen were not abrasive at all. Although I don’t know how I would feel after playing Final Fantasy for XIV umpteen hours.

As far as the actual gameplay of Final Fantasy XIV it was just like Final Fantasy XI, I’m afraid that this game may just be a graphical update. I ran through the town and saw the shops and few NPC’s all very familiar to anyone that has played FFXI. When I got out into the field with a group to fight some enemies, again felt just like FFXI.

Final Fantasy XIV or Star Wars The Old Republic? The variables here would be release dates, friends online, monthly pricing, and system. I don’t know when either game is coming out for sure, but I’ll be giving both a try when they are released. I think my friends online are gonna be split. Whoever has the cheaper service is just gonna receive bonus points.  As far as systems go, I know I’ll be starting either one on the PC so I guess that does matter. Here’s a short clip of FNJimmy and myself hands on with Jack Daniels errrrrrrr Final Fantasy XIV.

This is a video that has been circulating the net about the difference between the alpha and beta versions of Final Fantasy XIV. Hello?! WTF? When the game is actually released,  we won’t be playing either version, so who cares? The graphics are nice though.

This is the North American E3 2010 Trailer. Makes my nipples hard Jimmy.

Kmart has the Deal of the week again when you purchase Red Dead Redemption or Mafia II ... there's a catch though.

Deal of the Week

In-store only. 

Red Dead Redemption with a $20 coupon at Kmart.  Red Dead is going to be the game of the year. Unless you are a Jimmy and would rather play a Ninja Gaiden from 2 years ago.

Mafia II with a $20 coupon at Kmart.  While you're picking up Red Dead, might as well get Mafia II too. The next game you buy at Kmart will be like $22 with tax. Stolen! All my receipts from Kmart are less than retail. I have two that are less than $25. I am saving money there. 

Want to shop online? 

You can save the same amount of money if you shop for games online. Amazon does free shipping which is a bonus, if you don't like to leave the house like me. I'm pwnn all day everyday, I ain't got time to drive a million miles to the store. Amazon also offers release day shipping, which works very well. I have never missed a release day shipping delivery. It's only one dollar more than the regular shipping, usually. 

Red Dead Redemption as low as $44.99. Always get free shipping. So for an extra $5 here, you don't have to leave the house. Wink face.

Starcraft II PRICE CUT!! If you want to play this and don't have it yet, you are a Jimmy.

Read full story...

You get a white elite. 2 controllers and Final Fantasy XIII. Now you may not want to play Final Fantasy XIII, but you can sell it. New it's still worth $40-$50, which means that's a real easy sale or trade for you for about $20 or so.

Final Fantasy XIII Limited Edition Xbox 360 price drop and a free faceplate

You get a white elite. 2 controllers and Final Fantasy XIII. Now you may not want to play Final Fantasy XIII, but you can sell it. New it's still worth $40-$50, which means that's a real easy sale or trade for you for about $20 or so. The faceplate is alledgy worth $50, maybe you can get $10 for it. Do you need 2 controllers? You can easily sell that extra controller for $25 bucks.

The Final Fantasy XIII Limited edtion is on sale now for $299.99 250 gig HD 2 Wireless controllers Final Fantsy XIII game A Headset A Faceplate (must click add to cart on Amazon.) So if you sold off the extra Controller ($25) the Final Fantasy XIII game ($30) and the faceplate ($10) you could get back at least $65. That knocks the total down to $235 for a 250 gig HD White Xbox 360 Elite. Stolen!

Gouki Guild in Final Fantasy XIV

By: goukijones Sep 11, 2010 | 6 Comments

I’m looking for some serious people to get down and destroy this Final Fantasy XIV. Team up with the Gouki Guild.

Gouki Guild in Final Fantasy XIV. Number 1 in the Eorzea!

Final Fantasy XIV world map

I haven’t decided what town and or Job or craft I will do just yet. I will tell you I will not start in the castle town of Ul’dah. That is nubfarm. So lets talk about Gridania, it’s in the woods. The Bontanist, carpenters, and archer’s guild are all in Gridinia. Also the lancer's and Conjurrer's guilds as well. Those are all classes I’ve considered really focusing on. Bontanist for sure. I will be doing bontany, for a few reasons. One, it gets you out of the town. Chopping down trees and hacking away at flowers and other foliage. 

I don’t think it will matter about which city we start in. The other option is Limsa Lominsa. My only issue is with this place is that it’s an island. That probably won’t make a difference once we unlock all of the travel routes. I like the water town because it’s open, blue and green. Gridania is just dark green and seems like it’s in the shade everywhere. 

As a guild we will focus on working together throughout the world. Choose any class or profession you like. It’s more important to have fun than anything else. We’ll combine whatever we choose and work from there. I’m sure there will be plenty of things we will be able to take advantage of early one. Especially with my experience with the beta at this point. I got one Jimmy maxed out for the beta. Tons of items, maxed gear and a ton of money. What I need is some partners in crime and to take our Jimmys out and level them up. 

So if you want to join the Gouki Guild sign up for Gouki.com and leave a comment on this story. On September 22, 2010 when Final Fantasy XIV is released we’ll meet and figure out what planet we’re gonna be on and go from there. Don’t be a Jimmy!

Holyshit new content for Final Fantasy XIV! Nevermind, there isn't 1 second of actual gameplay. Not much is actually explained at all. The computer graphics look beautiful. Square Enix, really just wants to make movies.

Read full story...

The world is full! Now you can get a 1017 error when trying to purchase the game.

Straight from Square-Enix:

"Due to the overwhelmingly positive response to FINAL FANTASY XIV: A Realm Reborn, we are currently experiencing extremely long wait times for users to be able to log in and play. As a temporary measure, we will halt sales of FINAL FANTASY XIV: A REALM REBORN’s digital download products so we can accommodate all of those wishing to play. We are working to expand our server capacity in the coming days."

Well, that's interesting... looks like they've sold more copies than they can handle on the server side. I'm glad they're doing this so all of the pre-orders can hopefully get in and play until they work this out enough to continue selling.

Just so we're clear. You will find Team Gouki on Malboro server. Linkshell will be Gouki & Free Company will be with Taw.net.

Join up with Team Gouki in Final Fantasy XIV. Leave a comment for more info. 

Thanks for watching.

FFXIV ARR Titan: Lord Of Crags Battle Guide

By: Zero2990 Sep 9, 2013 | 2 Comments

My 2nd FFXIV boss guide, Titan: Lord of crags Lv34

So we've all been having fun in the last couple of weeks and apart from the odd tough dungeon nothing really poised as a real threat.. Until now!

This has easily been my favourite fight so far as its enabled me to play a real support role and oversee the battle.
I struggled with Titan for a good few hours until I found a decent party through Duty Finder. Most players will be under equipped for the battle so make sure you have all up to date gear for Lv32-34

FFXIV Resource Guide - Gouki Linkshell Approved

By: goukijones Aug 16, 2013 | 5 Comments

Here a few links that I've been using to help me get thru those tough times of FFXIV. Please add your favorites in the comments below.

Hello. As most of you know I'm super hype for this Final Fantasy & I've been going hard in the beta since about 5AM today. I'm on Malboro server. My name is Avitas Sibannac. Freind me.

Here's my list of stuff you should know.

Maps - Know your locations. This link is great he has all of the gathering points, dungeons, everything is marked. 

Materials & stuff - These guys got everything. I think the meuns are a little Jimmyfied, but once you figure it out, you'll be on your way. 

Macros - All da Jimmys need macros right? Maybe not so much early game, but you'll want to understand how they work. 

Videos - This Jimmy has it all covered. Check out all of his videos, he covers almost every subject & even your dumbass questions. 

Reddit - I love the Reddit for man than just porn. It's my number 1 source for FF info. I've been thru the SE forums & that is all a cluster fuck. Stuff is buired on there & there is a giant congragation of nubfarm there. 

I'll be adding more to this list as I move along thru the game & find out what is improtant & not. Plus I'll be working on my own leveling guide for Gathering & Crafting. 

Thanks for reading. Please leave any comments or suggestions below. 

Join the Gouki Linkshell on Malboro. Just message me & I'll add you. Avitas Sibannac.

All the gear you need to be a master crafter for level 25-29. HQ style. This gear can easily last you 10 levels. With the right Materia added you can be an HQ master, like me. Remember DoH gear is cross class. I'm leveling all crafts to 50. Save $$$!

Before I even started I check the MP to see how much it would cost me to just buy this stuff & not waste my time crafting. Well 1; I need the XP for Weaver & Goldsmith. 2; I’ve been collecting HQ Diremite & a few other mats for a week. Plus all my other crafts are at level 24 so I can make any miscellaneous piece I need on the fly.

On the MP these items HQ were costing well over 30k on Malboro server. I’m fairly certain I put this entire set together for less than 20k using HQ mats.

Head: Velveteen Wedge Cap Lv. 27
http://xivdb.com/?item/2733/Velveteen-Wedge-Cap-of-Crafting
Body: Velveteen Coatee of Crafting Lv. 26
http://xivdb.com/?item/3077/Velveteen-Coatee-of-Crafting
Hands: Velveteen Shortgloves Lv. 28
http://xivdb.com/?item/3583/Velveteen-Shortgloves
Waist: Velveteen Half Apron Lv. 28
http://xivdb.com/?item/4006/Velveteen-Half-Apron
Legs: Velveteen Bottom Lv. 28
http://xivdb.com/?item/3363/Velveteen-Bottom
Feet: Velveteen Gaiters Lv. 28
http://xivdb.com/?item/3823/Velveteen-Gaiters

Neck: Silver Choker Lv. 29
http://xivdb.com/?item/4332/Silver-Choker
Ears: Horn Earrings Lv. 25
http://xivdb.com/?item/4211/Horn-Earrings
Wrist: Silver Wristlets of Crafting Lv. 26
http://xivdb.com/?item/4105/Silver-Wristlets-of-Crafting
Rings x2: Silver Rings of Crafting Lv. 27
http://xivdb.com/?item/4440/Silver-Ring-of-Crafting

A level 26 WVR & GSM can make all of this stuff no problem. Providing HQ materials are used to make it easy on them. I highly recommend always crafting for HQ mats, if you want for sure a HQ outcome.

Total list of materials used:
Dew Thread 6
Undyed Cotton Cloth 2
Undyed Velveteen Cloth 10
Silver Ingot 9
Iron Ingot 1
Rubber 1
Mudstone Whetstone 2
Silver Rings 2
Antelope Horn 1
Aldgoat Leather 2

Give or take a few mats here & there. Maybe a couple extra, just in case there is a miss. I think you’ll be good tho.

*I'll add an update later on the Materia I used.

End stats were 172 Craftsmanship. 183 Control. 278 CP.

If you’re interested in this set & want to save $$$ contact me on Malboro server.
