Innovation that really changes the experience of games is something that a lot of developers can't get right. Here's a list of Gouki.com's most innovative things in video games from 2010.

Super Street Fighter IV - Replay channel

Watch random fights online while you cook breakfast. Sometimes even fights you've been in pop up or fights from people on you friends list. The SSF4 was a great way to learn street fighter as well. 

Need for Speed Hot Pursuit - The Autolog

Nothing else released this year made me want to play a game more than the Autolog. The competition of getting the fastest time on racing, or playing a cop intrigued me to no end. I'd stay up all night trying to figure out how this Jimmy (ThaBrad) got 10 seconds on some random interceptor challenge.

Fable III - Friend stats and updates

I have 0 STD's, Creasemonkey has 6. Erik Estrada has 27 kids. Man of Ponage has 22,000,000 gold. These stats would pop up constantly while you were playing. They were also in real time. 

Smackdown VS Raw 2011 - Create a superstar

Where this feature has it woes, the outcome of what you can create is still amazing.

Halo Reach - menu

People do not realize how brilliant the Halo Reach menu is, that you can go through the entire menu. Check friends online, see friends armor sets, change your armor, buy armor, change your buttons, view the stats from the game, save a copy of the game. It's ridiculous. Every game should be like this. 

Winners will be announced December 29th. Did we leave anything out? What's your favorite? Leave a comment below! AND don't forget to vote for your favorites in our Video Game Catalog.

Hardcore Gamer Holiday buyer's guide 2010

By: goukijones Nov 18, 2010 | 14 Comments

The lowest prices on video games and accessories any hardcore gamer may want or need this holiday season. Game suggestions, the coolest collector editions, inexpensive accessories and pre-order gift ideas. Save money on video games this holiday season.

2010 Hardcore Gamer Holiday buyer's guide

I am a hardcore gamer. So I have put together a list of things that I would gladly accept or give away as a holiday gifts. Starting with some of my favorite games from this year. Also some games I haven't played, but my friends can't seem to stop talking about. You're going to find some of the best gift ideas below for somebody you know is a serious gamer. Just do a little research first and make sure they haven't played the games already. 

Every gamer needs accessories, I could probably use a new controller. Mine makes funny noises in two different places. My wireless headsets are losing their charge times because I use them so much. If you don't have HDMI cables I got you covered. Also if you have a PS3, you know the controller charge cable is real short and you can get a universal USB extension cable that will work with your PS3 and Xbox 360. Perfect for keyboard extensions and stuuuuuf.

For the serious gamer that wanted the collector's edition, but didn't get it, I have a few suggestions there as well. You can always sell or trade-in that extra copy of the game. I just want the DLC, statues, booklets, soundtracks and goodies found in some collector's edition.

It's time to save money this holiday season and I hope my guide below saves you some money and time. Most of the options come with free shipping and that's great for the holidays, just make sure you don't wait until the last minute to order online. If there's something you think I missed or just want to make a suggestion, please leave a comment below. Thank you for reading. Now go start saving money!

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
1:14 Joe says not for this demo
2:08 Doesn't seem to be a smooth transisition here
2:13 goukijones asks about inFAMOUS 2 release date
2:17 Official Sony Release Date repsonse
2:21 goukijones asks about multiplayer and/or co-op
2:51 Nubfarm!
3:21 Unskippable cut scene
3:53 Chopper down
4:06 Ionic Vortex free roam
4:20 People and cars flying away in a giant tornado
4:40 Cinderkin asks about the Demo Release Date
5:08 Demo railed

Dragon Age II is nothing like the original

By: goukijones Jan 15, 2011 | 6 Comments

Dragon age II has a unique lead character, new combat and magic systems and a completely different story telling style from the original. What does this mean? Dragon Age II is more like an original game.

Dragon age II has a unique lead character, new combat and magic systems and a completely different story telling style from the original. What does this mean? Dragon Age II is more like an original game.

I played it! At that point though I had no idea what was going on with the story really. Mike Laidlaw was trying to explain it to me, but I was probably a little drunk. It was late in the afternoon that day at the San Diego comic-con and we just stumbled out of this half strip club, half steak house somewhere smack dab in the middle of the Gaslamp district. While walking back to the convention center FnJimmy gets smacked in the side of the dome with what looked like a giant condom package at first. I picked it up and read Dragon Age II, some chicks where just chucking these things into the crowd. Then I realized some reh-tard dressed as Goku run by with a giant inflatable sword. That's what the chick hit FnJimmy in the side of the face with. So we headed up stairs to check out Dragon Age II, what happens next is amazing. Dragon Age II Hands-on SDCC 2011.

But that's not why we are here today. Dragon Age II is coming out in a few weeks. By the way it's Dragon Age II, roman numerals Jimmy. EA even spells it Dragon Age 2 sometimes, Sorry, maybe that's my problem. I pre-ordered my Bioware Signature Edition. If you didn't, don't worry, you're still gonna get some cool DLC when the game is released. But for those of you who did pre-order the Bioware Signature Edition here's a look at some of the DLC you will be getting.

Dragon Age 2 : Exiled Prince



Also in another video released this week. Gouki.com's old drinking buddy Mike Liadlaw returns to explain the unique story telling in Dragon Age II. This time everybody is sober. When you watch this video and listen to what they are saying, you know, if you played the first game that this going to be a completely different experience. Personally I think a lot about Mass Effect, when Mike explains it. I'll control the one main guy and he will develop a personality depending on my actions in the game, just like Mass Effect. Which is fine, but in the original Dragon Age you got to choose from an elf, a human, or a dwarf. Then on top of that you got to choose if you were high class or low class. That is completely out in Dragon Age II and I hope it works. So check out the latest developer diary from Mike Laidlaw and his team.

Borderlands 2! oh wait it's just Rage ...

By: goukijones Feb 17, 2011 | 6 Comments

It's just the new Rage trailer no big deal. Stop giving yourself awards from E3 like you just won game of the year.

At E3 2010, we were not allowed inside the private booth showing Rage. It could have been the alcohol on my breath or that I hit on the PR girl like 5 times while trying to convince her to let us in. We didn't miss much from what I understand. Although aparently Rage won like 500 E3 awards. WTF is an E3 award? Developers barely show playable demos at the show. I'm all for saying, I'm most hyped for this game or this game looks like it's going to be a lot of fun when it comes out. Guess what it's not out. Rage especially, it's going to be at E3 again this year. So what does that mean? Another 500 E3 awards. sad face. 

From YouTube: We've released a new trailer for RAGE, the highly anticipated shooter from id Software. The trailer features an original track, Burning Jacob's Ladder, by singer Mark Lanegan (Screaming Trees, Queens of the Stone Age, Gutter Twins).

RAGE features intense first-person shooter action, breakneck vehicle combat, an expansive world to explore and jaw-dropping graphics powered by id's revolutionary id Tech™ 5 technology. Set in the not-too-distant future after an asteroid impacts Earth, you emerge into a vast wasteland to discover humanity working to rebuild itself against such forces as bandit gangs, mutants, and more. From the pioneers of first-person shooter gameplay, RAGE promises an experience like no other.

RAGE is slated for release on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC in North America on September 13th and across Europe on September 16th. For more information on RAGE visit www.RAGE.com.

User Stories Per Day Updated

By: goukijones Feb 10, 2011 | 14 Comments

The number of stories a user can write per day has been increased.

The number of stories a user can write per day has been increased to encourage users to write more. Also this will help your chances with all of our giveaways.

Previously users could only write 1 story per day. I know a lot of people want to write more, just not for the giveaways, but because they are enjoying the site and want to contribute. You can now write up to 2 stories per day. As the site grows and we move further away from our beta phases we will increase the number again.

So now Don't be a Jimmy. You still gotta get them approved. Write quality reviews, previews, blogs, share videos ... Keep it classy. 

Thank you for reading and writing on Gouki.com.

In an unprecedented move for the video game industry, DC Universe Online announcers an earlier relese date than had previously been expected. Now read my take about DCuo and get ready to play. Playstation 3 users got a hot game early on in the year.

This game has one of the best pre-rendered cut scenes we have ever scene. Even with out the Batman and Superman ass whoopin's that take place. The official youtube channel for DC Universe Online doesn't allow embeding of that video because they are nubfarm. Buuuut you can watch this sweet video of Jim Les and some other nuab telling you, how they put everything together. It a great video so check it out.
