A recap of my 2 days at the Las Vegas 2012 AniMegaCon. The Universe's Largest Anime Convention. Featuring: Vampy aka Linda Le, a Maid Cafe, an exclusive cosplay picture slideshow, exclusive video and a Street Fighter Tournament.
FnJimmy and Myself attended day 1. Special thanks to Jimmy for calling in sick that day to go with me. I know everybody at his work follows him on Twitter, but he was there with me, Tweeting anyway. PWN. It was all good with FnJimmy until I showed him Dragon Ball Hoshi. He lost his shit.
Here's the gist of it.
We watched the Lolita Fashion show.
Let me know if this is getting weird. While waiting for this to start, Japanese pop music played over the sound system. There was a buff chick sitting in front of us. Full on Jimmy style, he loves broad shoulders. She looked very nice though, I was checking her out. At 1 point she turns to us and asked if we knew the name of the song that was playing. Sorry lady, FnJimmy and I never heard dis shit. Some Jimmy 2 rows in front us turns around a few seconds later and shows her the title on his iPhone. FnJimmy has an iPhone, he could of pulled that info and he would have been the 1 to score the back stage pass.
FnJimmy had been complaining about food ever since we arrived. I was complaining about him stinking. The Hilton, now known has the Las Vegas Hotel, didn't have the greatest looking dining establishments. I wasn't hungry, I woke early, exercised, took a shower and ate breakfast before I left. FnJimmy did none of those things. So we went into the Paradise Cafe, it seemed I had no choice. I ordered the French Dip, I figured that was the safest thing for me to try and eat. What came to me was a soggy bun and the most dried out, alleged roast beef I ben hads ever seen. I took about 2 bites and was done. I ate the fries, they weren't great either, but at least edible. I'd stay away from the restaurant if I were you.
What about the Animegacon Jimmy? Well there were 2 anime viewing rooms, 1 put on by Cruchyroll and the other was FUNimation. We chilled in there for a few, took some shots of that Jack Dizzle! The exhibitor hall was no San Diego Comic-con, but you could walk through a couple of times. Of course there was an Artist Alley and you can always find some great artwork in there. Plus tons of panels, tons.
Here's some clips from the opening ceremonies, Featuring Ani from the Maid Cafe, Vampy, and Kirby?
The first panel we sat in was for Linda Le aka VampyBitMe. It was billed as a cosplay Q&A. In line was a bunch of dudes, I Twat this picture.
FnJimmy wasn't even watching Vampy. After I told him about the Hoshi he was pulling up episodes on his iPhone and watching DragonBall while Vampy was standing right in front of us. Fuckin' Jimmy!
FnJimmy and I got snuck into the maid cafe to look inside. I was too cheap to pay for it. When we peaked in all I saw was 2 dudes with their shirts off. Didn't look like it was for me at that time. The maids were cute though.
We couldn't make it to the AniMegaCon on Saturday because we attended an IGL tournament. My plan WAS to get back to the AniMegaCon by 9-10 for the cosplay burlesque, that sounded like a hot ticket, but I didn't make it because of the IGL debacle. That's a whole 'nother story though.
I did make it back there on Sunday with Choke. I convinced Choke to come and enter the Street Fighter tournament with me. FnJimmy backed out at the last minute. I'm sure he was afraid to get railed in public. I had it all fucked up from the beginning tho, we both brought fight sticks for Xbox and the tournament was on PS3. We both got there at 11, but the tournament didn't start until 1. :| My bad.
While we waited we had 3 beers and watched Vampy on stage again. This time she was talking about photographers. I learned something new. When you take pictures of Cosplayers, get the shoes Jimmy! Don't cut off the shoes. The girls don't like that. Heard.
1 o'clock. Time for the Street Fighter tournament. 8 entrants! C'mon!
PS3? Aw fuck! We're screwed we both thought. No way we could win with those Jimmys ass arcade fighter sticks. Luckily there were a few friendly Jimmys there, that allowed us to play with their sticks. Sounds exciting doesn't it? Choke and I tore through the crowd. I put Choke into losers. John, a Bison player, put me into losers where I had to face Choke in losers finals. Choke defeated me.
Since John had the only PS3 fight stick, Choke had to use that arcade fighter. Just like I did when Choke eliminated me and just like Choke did when I put him into losers. So yeah, there's a streak going on here. Shout out to John, thanks for sharing your equipment. Damn anyway I write that it sounds gay. GG's.
The tournament was over and we had a little while before we had to be home for SummerSlam. Actually, I remember this clearly, because it was a cluster fuck. It was exactly 3pm and on the schedule, the Maid Cafe graduation should have been starting in the main room. We went in there and the 1:30 panel was still going. So we went back out and took some more pictures of cosplayers. I thought, okay, they're a few minutes behind. No big deal. About 15 minutes later we went back inside and it looked like the maids were getting ready. We sat there for another 20 minutes and nothing happened. It didn't look like anyone was in a hurry or concerned that they were 40 minutes behind. We finally got up and left when we saw the maids sit back down in the crowd as if they were waiting for something too. After such a great weekend, that was the only let down.
Overall this is great for Las Vegas. We had a lot of fun. It reminded me a lot of the anime cons I went to in Florida. I can't wait to be a part of AniMegaCon again next year. I wish a lot of success for AniMegaCon. Kick ass!

Two iconic players of the fighting game community Gootecks & Mike Ross play the latest Marvel vs Capcom 3 build at the recent CES 2011.
This game is going to be crazy!
Dead Island has recently been released and with all sorts of choices for zombie games, does Dead Island have what it takes to keep your interest. Is it worth your money? I tell you straight in the Gouki.com Official Review. Don’t be a Jimmy! Check it out.
Zombie games have become quite popular in the last few years, with successes such as Dead Rising, Left 4 Dead, and Dead Nation (see a trend here?). Techland and Deep Silver have gotten on board with a Zombie game of their own with Dead Island. Does this 5 year plus developed game show a fine polish or is it another Techland disaster? Find out in the Gouki.com Review.
The story of Dead Island is by far one of the most uninspired pieces of garbage I have seen in a game in a long time. The game starts with giving you a short character bio for each of the four cast members, detailing why they are on the island of Banoi and a little insight into who they are. None of these things matter as the game quickly removes any real story aspect from the game. The game starts with you in your hotel room after a zombie outbreak has occurred, leaving you helpless to fend off zombies. You quickly here a voice that tells you to grab a weapon and head for safety. You’ll soon find yourself incapacitated by the undead, but find out that you are immune to becoming a zombie (how convenient). Meaning that every surviving person on the island makes you their personal errand boy/girl because you can’t become infected by the undead and they all can; making for some pretty cheesy story arcs. You’ll soon find yourself ignoring any sense of story here, which is probably the only bad thing about Dead Island.
The gameplay mechanics in Dead Island are what you would expect from your average first person shooter, but this is no shooter. While there are guns, they are very hard to come by. Your only real source for survival is relying heavily on melee combat, and team work. Dead Island is a 4-player co-op experience and this is where the game shines very well. It reminds me a lot of Borderlands with all of the weapons and how there are hundreds of different customization options for them. Dead Island also uses a very unique way of melee combat, with the right analog stick you can slash and swing in whichever direction you feel. It makes aiming for the head or limbs that much easier, and as we all know cut or bash a zombie in the head and they’re dead. This takes a bit of time to get used to but once you do it is a lot of fun slicing the heads of zombies with perfect precision. There are times when there are a ton of zombies attacking you at once without any frame rate issues. Also there are a bunch of different zombie types, ranging from Walkers, Infected, Thugs, and more. My only gripe with the online multiplayer is that the game doesn’t force character selection like in Left 4 Dead, which sounds like a good thing, but when you have 3 out of 4 players using the same character it’s impossible to differentiate between them as each character looks exactly the same. This also doesn’t help with team unity, because in Dead Island each of the 4 characters has special abilities and skills that benefit one another for the best survival. When all 4 players are the same guy it tends to become mute point. Another great thing about co-op is that you aren’t really tied to a leash with your partners, you are basically free to explore the island however you like, but there are some missions that require all players there to start. Exploring the island is essential for finding new weapons and mods, plus also secret missions. The driving mechanics in the game aren’t bad but there aren’t great either. I do have a problem with driving in first person only and with the steering wheel being on the right side, but I’m just being picky here. Overall the game plays much like Borderlands and Left 4 Dead and that is a good thing.
The look of Dead Island feels a little outdated with some bad textures here and there, and the character models look a little flushed out and not as refined, but the undead look great. The environments also look pretty good considering how there are so many places to go and zombies on screen. The game rarely loads either unless you are leaving or entering certain areas of the game. Seeing a zombie get his head bashed in by a spiked bat never gets old, the way the blood splatters and how pieces of flesh fly everywhere are great touches. For the most part the game looks good and you can really immerse yourself in the island of Banoi quite easily. Weapons look like you would expect them too; it’s also nice to see the wear and tear the more you use them. Bats start cracking, knifes look rusted, sickles start to bend its great. Also seeing your weapons change as you upgrade them and customize them are a nice touch as well. The fire effects from Molotov cocktails and exploding canister look great as well. Overall the visual aspect of the game isn’t the best, but it doesn’t take away from the experience.
The audio department can be a bit of a hit or miss in some areas. While the voice acting is done rather well, the cheesy one liners and pleas from some of the other survivors are sometimes quite laughable. The zombies sound great and the ambiences make you really feel like you’re stuck on an island that is infested with the undead. You can literally hear a zombie around the corner moaning and groaning while they wait to attack. The character you play as don’t sound bad at all, but can get cheesy too with how they are feeling about the current situation. Unfortunately the cheesy one liners get repeated quite often as you explore the island. For the most part the audio in Dead Island does a good job immersing you into the game.
Dead Island is a pretty good game with a lot going for it. The 4 player co-op is a lot of fun, and the single player is just as good. The RPG elements that of Boarderlands with skill trees, weapon customization, and leveling up are all represented well here in Dead Island. The game clocks in at well over 40 hours, and the each character plays so differently that you can essentially play through 4 different times. This game remains fun from chapter 1 until the very end. Dead Island is a huge success over Techland’s latest Call of Juarez: The Cartel. Anyone thinking about playing Dead Island will be happy to know that you can enjoy it solo or with friends and there is a character for every play style.
Besides Valkenhayn R. Helsing, another character has been confirmed.
Platnium the Trinity has been confirmed as a new DLC character. follow the link below to learn about this character:
in their second episode of Death Battle, Akuma (Gouki) is Pitted against Shang Tsung. Who will win, the master of the dark hadou, or the soul stealing sorcerer? It's going to be one awesome battle. Be sure to watch this.

It's not a finished build of the 3DS version, but it's looking pretty good so far. There's also a trailer in here showing off some of the new 3DS exclusive features.
This video shows part of the opening sequence to Snake Eater on the 3DS and the ps2 side by side. It's pretty neat to see how the 3DS version is coming along. A lot of stuff looks better on it, but certain things still look better on the ps2. This isn't a finished version so that might end up changing, but it'll give you an idea of what the finished product will be.
And here's the new 3DS trailer showing off some of the new features for snake eater. The camouflage system seems neat, but I'm really hoping the gyro scope can be turned off.
What do you think? Is this version going to live up to your expectations, or will you just get the remade version on 360? Or maybe even both.
We've all seen pictures of awesome fight sticks; now it's time to see some of the worst.
The Internet is home to some of the most awesome fightstick mods out there. However, there are a number of downright goofy sticks out there as well. Some are official, some are homemade, but all of these monstrosities are bound to make to make you say "WTF?!"Read full story...

Sometimes I get drunk, play some old ass game and then try to write about it. Spelling might be correct, but grammar and subject matter has no bounds. Read with caution. Today's game - Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.
Star Wars: Knight of the Old Republic
First of all, why is the screen square? And WTF is a black and white button? The initial character set up is streamlined perfectly and is lusting with excellent game design. I named my girl NubnubDaRere, that name sounds just like a Star Wars name, if you say it real fast. Then Combat is introduced right away, I choose melee style and solider class. It is my destiny to become the ultimate Jedi warrior. I WILL become a dual lightsaber master.
I skip through every conversation as fast as I can, consistently being as cruel and evil as possible. I keep my inventory list very tight, I know exactly what I have and what I need. Armor, lightsabers and all of my tech is maxed out constantly. I have the maximum amount of grenades(all types) with me at all times. And you fuckin' better believe my Medpacs are stacked up as well. I'm not talking about the Jimmy ass Medpacs either.
Does anyone know how to fix this square ass screen? The graphics are amazing still to this day. The game looks great and there's tons of detail throughout. The cut-scenes are all rendered in-game. Knights of the Old Republic is an industry changer and became bigger than the name of Star Wars itself. Something that eventually evolved into Mass Effect and hopefully one day The Old Republic MMO. If you have never played KOTOR, then you fucked up big time some where in your life.
