Team Gouki hit up the Bastion at E3. Check out my hands on time with the co-founder of Super Giant Games, Davin Simon. He destroys the demo right on front of me and I got some of on video. Plus FnJimmy's official take.
I just learned of Bastion while at E3. I love hunting, gathering, leveling up type games. FnJimmy says "It's like Final Fantasy Tactics." I think he means, because of the squares. Bastion is a Summer of Arcade XBLA Exclusive. I stopped by the booth at a different time from FnJimmy and BatRastered. I met Gavin Simon, co-founder of Super Giant Games.
The first question I asked was if his gear changed when he got new armor and leveled up. He does not and Gavin was surprised by that question he told me. Nobody else had asked that. Okay, so maybe it's just me then, but I like seeing the gear change. Irrelevant.
Bastion looks sweet and it looks like it's going to be a hell of a value. Check out this video below, it starts off with a little FnJimmy gameplay to warm you up. Then in the third clip 0:47, Gavin shows me how to PWN with Bastion. Badass Nice.

I understand that it is E3 time and people want to show what they play to do with games. Remember Deus Ex, that had a similar trailer. Months later it's like the same thing Dragon Age 1 did. Beautiful trailer, in-game stick figures. WTF.
Who is at fault here? I don't suspect the developers are at fault, their actually building the game and I would think they would want to show it off. Publishers want to show these pretty little videos to board members. Gamers have to be smarter than this.
This trailer looks amazing and if game play is exactly like this, Prey 2 could be awesome. But actually game play will not look like this trailer. Enjoy it for what it's worth. Just remember in 6 months when you see more actual game play, you'll be thinking ... wtf?

E3 2011 Exclusive: Team Gouki checked out Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon. While BatRastered grills the PR Jimmy, GoukiJones raips on screen. Later FnJimmy offers his take as well. Don't be a Jimmy!
Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon is a cheap game Jimmy, $40 bucks out the gate. We might have a serious deal of fun here. 3 player online co-op, 4 different suits to use and upgrade, tons of bugs and aliens to shoot and destructible environments. Developed by Vicious Cycle Software out of North Carolina, EDF could be their best game yet. Of course "could be" is the key word there since I haven't actually played the final product. I am hype.
I had fun while playing the demo. You can check out my killin' bugs and dropping buildings in the video below, while BatRastered asks as many questions as he can.

Street Fighter X Tekken is some really fun fighting. I love it. We have exclusive show floor footage and my take right after I played it. Official. Also the latest character trailer.
Last Tuesday at E3 2011 the first game I played was this. Street Fighter X Tekken. We played the game on the brand new Mad Catz FightStick. Here's a picture I snizapped.
It was the exact same for me.
Here is the gameplay video. You can see the big screen setup and the station set Capcom had in their booth. Everybody got a chance to play.
My official take after I had just played.
The E3 2011 trailer
By: goukijones Jun 20, 2011 | 5 Comments
Exclusive audio of Hitman Absolution at the E3 2011 Behind Closed Doors Demo. Including actual demo screen shots. Also my take on the gameplay and exclusive pictures from inside the private room. Nothing you haven't seen before.
The demo starts out with Agent 47 hiding in a corner of a "derelict Library." The room was crawling with about 10-15 cops. Get ready for this comparison a lot, it looked like Batman Arkham Asylum. Agent 47 sneaks around for a bit, the cover system locked onto the walls real well and hugged corners as he snuck away from cops. He also has "Detective Vision" where he can see kind of an outline where the cops are about to patrol. A line of fire draws along the ground where the cop is about to patrol.
You can listen to the actual demo I saw, in the video below. The video includes some screen shots of what I actually saw. Then as you read on, I'll describe my thoughts on the gameplay and you can check out my actual notes from the E3 2011 Hitman Absolution demonstration.
Actual Audio from the Hitman Absolution E3 2011 Private Demo
Agent 47 sneaks around killing the cops of one by one -all of their backs are conveniently turned- and nobody in the room is the wiser. Nothing you haven't seen before. In this room the developers manage to show you a lot of the moves and stuff that's in the game. Certainly a demonstration level. I'm a real gamer though, I know what's up. A lot of BS. The sequence ends with Agent 47 taking a rookie cop hostage and I might have blanked out a little at this part, that or my flask was blocking the screen while a took another drink. He grabs the rookie and then he's surrounded by all of the cops in the room. I thought the Detective in charge shot the rookie, just to get to Agent 47. I don't know, that would be crazy right? Do you know any cops that would just shoot another cop that easily when there are 40 cops in the room and 1 bad guy. Sorry, back to the demo.
A chase ensues up there stairs and there's a little shoot out. God mode heard. Agent 47 takes no damage and escapes. He conveniently walks into another room where a helicopter is waiting outside ready to shoot the place up. Nothing you haven't seen before. This was to demonstrates the destructible environments of the game, the loud sounds and Agent 47 sneaking around some more. When he makes it to the end of the hallway/building there's a cop there. No trouble here though, the cop is facing the opposite way and doesn't see Agent 47(or give a shit about the huge helicopter attack that just went down.) Agent 47 sneaks up on cop and chokes the shit out of him. Then he puts on the cops uniform as a disguise. He then walks right out onto the ledge where the chopper is like no problem. A little ridiculous if you ask me.
No cause for alarm from the helicopter, he must not have known there was a fellow officer on that top floor. Agent 47 causally walks across the roof top as the helicopter hovers over head. He sneaks into this stoners apartment where they are growing massive amounts of weed. One of the pot heads is so stoned he Agent 47 is just hilarious, just like this demo. Then some real cops bust into the room and Agent 47 takes them out with some hand to hand combat. Nothing you haven't seen before.
He walks out into the hallway and takes the elevator downstairs right into a mini police command center set up in this hotel lobby. The room was full of cops. The game slows down as you walk pass people and they seem to notice something about you. But nothing happened in this demo, just slow down. There's all these guns and grenades on the table and it looks like he can pick them up. I'm thinking okay big shoot out coming here. Nope. He picks up a donut instead just as another cop calls him out. Agent 47 has his back is to the cop and the cop thinks Agent 47 is somebody else and is just talking to him. Agent 47 never turns around and the cop eventually gets distracted and leaves. This entire time the screen said "Push X to put the donut down." I can only imagine that if he did put the donut down and turned around the cop would have realized Agent 47 was not who he thought he was and a big shoot out would have occurred. But nothing I saw in this entire demo led me to really believe something that cool would happen.
The demo ended and according to my actual notes while watching the play through below, I found it interesting. Although I believe this entire Demo was just set up for press, the game looked like it has potential. Hitman Absolution came off to me as a Batman Arkham Asylum clone. Nothing you haven't seen before.
My actual notes while I watched the demo live.
- There's a big slice in the middle of the demo TV
- Sweet cover and trail system
- Cops can't see him right in front of them
- Cover hangs on and turns corners
- Detective Vision
- Drakes action sequence
- Disguise system - cop
- Walks into crowd of a 100 people
Let me know if you are hype for Hitman Absolution. Hype it up in the catalog and then leave a comment on this story. Oh and Don't be a Jimmy ....
A new fighter has entered the ring of Mortal Kombat
No release date yet, but the trailer looks pretty sweet. It says E3 2011 too so maybe that's when we'll know how much she'll be and when she's coming out.
Video is a little laggy, because I don't know how to embed the original from IGN.
Try not to laugh. I played the first FF13 all the way to disc 3 and I got to the "open world" part. Then I put it on the shelf and eventually mailed it to Blazemanx.
I couldn't help, but laugh a little bit when this trailer ended. I haven an appointment to see this game at E3 2011. Hopefuly I don't get banned from the Square Enix booth. Again, I'll try any Final Fantasy once.

Pro Gamer FnJimmy's 2011 E3 Preview Special
Ha ha suckers!
Games I wish to get some / more information on from this years E3.
E3 is coming up very soon and...I can't go. But mods of Gouki.com are! My wishlist contains Tekken X Street fighter, Serious Sam 3 BFE, El Shaddai: Ascension of Metatron, DmC and Bioshock Infinite. Here is why:
Tekken x Street Fighter
We have been getting lots of information and videos on SFxTekken but not the other way around. Recently getting into Tekken it was a bummer hearing Namco hasn't really started Tekken x Sf. Apparently Namco is showing something off about it at this years E3. Even before getting into Tekken, I was wondering how they would treat fireball characters in Tekken (Tekken has sidestepping so....) Also Tekken characters move lists are huge. The amount of target combos they have highly exceeds SF and the specials as well. In SfxTekken they shown Tekken elements such as launchers and ground juggles. I would love to see what SF-esque mechanics will be put into the Tekken Version.
Serious Sam 3 BFE
Am I a Duke Nukem fan? No. But I loved playing Serious Sam. Not much is known about this new Serious Sam besides it has amazing HD graphics and brings back some of the older enemies in the series in a visually glorious way. Graphics of course aren't everything, I loved Serious Sam for the gameplay, cheezy one liners and how very un-serious it was.
The loads of cheesy-ness and ridiculous weapons and enemies made the series extremely enjoyable. Apparently the game is a prequel to Serious Sam: First encounter and your in Egypt. The game will have 16 player Co-op in Campaign, holy hell. I don't know what type of in-sane campaign they will have going on but that sounds intense. I hope some sort of player vs player multiplayer game modes are announced. The older Sam games had it, this beautiful one should have it too!
El Shaddai: Ascension of Metatron
El Shaddai isn't a game many people know about, but they should. It's been released in Japan already and I've been eagerly awaiting the American release and deep info on the game. It is a third person action game with some plat-forming. The fighting looks amazing with cool fluid movements and very interesting graphics. Mainly the look and feel of the game seem very enjoyable. The closest thing I could relate this game too is Devil May Cry. If you put a Dante skin in the game, it would work just fine ;) Hopefully I can see more in-depth explanations of what Shadai has to offer because although it looks amazing, it could get old fast.
DMC Devil May Cry
I was hyped ever since the new DMC was announced. Most people are hating on Dante's new look as the young jerk teen but I like it. A new but still badass take on a game can be good after all the years. I want a good solid gameplay video, showing what truly sets this DMC a part from the others. In the TGS video they showed off his main weapon. Which was a sword that could extend but seemed like a snake? Can't wait to see what else is in store.
Bioshock Infinite looks infinitely fun to play! The graphics are mind blowing, and the setting is crazy. On a floating colony and people go crazy and have super powers, fighting all along the city in the sky and on rails. the powers look great too. The game looks extremely action packed and worth buying already. What seemed really cool in one of the elements was how you and the girl you are with can combine powers to trigger badass explosions and such. They have been gracious enough to show us awesome previews but they didn't differ much. I want to see something new and a real release-date.
Well that is my E3 2011 wish-list. Hopefully some of you are excited by these games as well, leave a comment on which ones you want.
