Gouki.com got a hands on demonstration of the new Limited Edition Mortal Kombat Klassic Fight Stick at the $21,000 Tournament in Las Vegas. Based off the vintage arcade style, this fight stick is priced to sell and comes with 3 Mortal Kombat Games.

Gouki.com was at the $21,000 Mortal Kombat tournament this weekend in Las Vegas and we got some hands on time with the new Mortal Kombat Klassic Fight Stick. Developed by PDP and designed to take you back to the golden age of arcades, this fight stick looks like it was ripped right out of an arcade cabinet from the 90's. Original tweet.

Mortal Kombat Klassic Fight Stick

This Fight Stick has a memory foam underside, how cool is that? It feels great, the buttons click away just like your Mad Catz FightSticks, but what I really like about this stick is the actual joystick. Old school arcade favorite for me. This is an exclusive fight stick and is limited to only 6000 units. You also get Mortal Kombat 1, 2 and 3 DLC codes. Only 6000 made, $130, a fight stick and 3 Mortal Kombat games. If you're planning on being a tournament player or you just don't have a fight stick yet, this is Deals Jimmy! Pre-order now.

Sleeping Dogs Review

By: Cinderkin Aug 14, 2012 | 1 Comments

Started out as Black Lotus starring a female protagonist, then becoming the next gen True Crime, and later named True Crime: Hong Kong has found its home in Sleeping Dogs. Is this identity complex game worth your money? Find out in this Gouki.com Review.

Sleeping Dogs has had its ups and downs in its fairly long development cycle. Originally starting off as a new IP called Black Lotus; then being turned into the latest in the True Crime franchise and then ultimately scrapped and cancelled by its former publisher Activision back in 2010. There wasn’t much to be excited about once Square Enix decided to pick up United Front’s latest game and change the name to Sleeping Dogs. Was this a smart move for Square Enix or should Sleeping Dogs do as its name implies and be put down.

Story:

The story in Sleeping Dogs follows a man named Wei Shen who was born in Hong Kong, but grew up in the United States after his mother decided to give him and his late sister Mimi a better life in America. Wei now back in Hong Kong as an undercover cop is sent in to infiltrate a well known triad group known as the Sun On Yee (a reference to a real group known as the Sun Yee On).  Wei’s main goal is to follow triad members and ultimately cripple the organization from the inside out. Wei grew up with most of the lower class triad members, and has a personal stake in the undercover operation, which leads his handler Raymond questioning his motives. Throughout the story Wei has to remember who he is and what his true goal is, as he fights with himself mentally to break from becoming too involved with the triads.

Gameplay:

The gameplay in Sleeping Dogs is not what you would normally expect from open world sandbox games. Where most in the genre focus on gunplay more than hand to hand combat, Sleeping Dogs takes what Batman Arkham Asylum brought us and expands on it. Combat is fun and fluid with the controls being easy to pick up and understand. The game has a huge emphasis on hand to hand combat and environmental attacks, such as throwing enemies into walls or dumpsters. The game also features some of the most brutal environmental attacks like throwing enemies on fish hooks, crushing them under car engines, or slicing their faces off in a bench saw. There is also gunplay in the game, but not to what most would expect from the genre. Rarely do you have a gun or weapon in your inventory, as most times you will obtain weapons by disarming enemies and using it against them. Once a knife breaks or you run out of bullets Wei will just toss it keeping the gameplay fresh and interesting. The game uses what is called an aggressive cover system, where Wei will get destroyed by gunfire if he sits behind cover too long. What the game wants you to do is vault over cover and either disarm an enemy or take him out with a slow motion gunshot while vaulting.

Sleeping Dogs offers a ton of side missions, collectibles, and other activities to keep you entertained. Ranging from doing favors for the locals, singing bad karaoke, betting on cock fighting, or racing events. The player can even shop and purchase new clothing or vehicles. There is always something to do in Hong Kong. Driving in open world games are usually hit or miss, but Sleeping Dogs does a wonderful job making the driving accessible. Cars turn how they should, motorcycles are fast and handle great, and the boats are what you would expect. Unfortunately there are no aircrafts Sleeping Dogs, but it does offer cab rides for those that want to get around the large recreation of Hong Kong easily.

Visuals:

Sleeping Dogs looks great for an open world sandbox type of game. I can’t say it’s the best looking game of this current generation, but the character models look great, as well as the environments. Cut scenes are well done with very believable moments.  Animations seem stiff sometimes, but nothing that can take away from what the rest of the game offers. The weather effects are done nicely as well, with water effects showing on the roads, the people of Hong Kong as well as cars. The city is very lively and filled with people roaming around living their day to day lives. It’s nice seeing NPC’s carrying on conversations with each other, or talking on the phone, or even buying food from a street vendor. It’s easy to get immersed into the world and it feels real.

Audio:

The audio presentation in this game is well thought out, and is done much better than a lot of games this generation. The voice acting is superb with a great amount of voice talent ranging from Will Yun Lee, Emma Stone, Lucy Liu, Tom Wilkinson and Parry Shen to name a few. Voice acting is done with a mix of English and Cantonese language, which offers a realistic touch to each character as well as being able to understand them. The music is also nicely done, ranging from Chinese hip hop, America rock, and classic music. They really give you a variety of tracks to listen to, with about 10 radio stations. The ambient sounds are well done, as well as the NPC’s who fill the city. There is some really good humor to be had by listening to NPC’s in Sleeping Dogs.  

Overall Sleeping Dogs is by far one of the most fun sandbox action games of this generation. Whether it’s fighting thugs in hand to hand combat, or shooting up rooms John Woo style; there is a ton of fun to be had here. With a compelling story, only plagued by its length and a world filled with activities that will keep you coming back for more. This game has hours of gameplay and nonstop fun. If you are a fan of this genre and can’t wait for GTA: V then Sleeping Dogs will fill your empty void for the year. It’s a blast!

Is this the SNK vs Capcom you have been looking for?

Who remembers Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo?! Hell yeah, I was a god at that game. I also played a lot of Marvel Overpower and the Dragon Ball Z CGC. I was a dope at both of those as well. Do you think I’ll be good at this Card Fighters’ Clash?! I see Darkstalkers, Rival Schools, and even Resident Evil. EVEN LEO?! WHERE IS GOUKI? Die 1000 DEATHS NOOB!

Check out Riot Girl in this new trailer!

Bayonetta looking way cleaner than the preview we saw for this game last year. Now I’m not going to try and fool you with any dialogue about whether or not I even have played Bayonetta in the past. I straight up can’t remember. I do remember playing a little bit, but nothing to remember, sadly. Look, the guy who created Bayonetta has got to be absolutely thrilled that she has become a Nintendo Princess. Nintendo even allowed a “Naive Angel Mode” so Bayonetta can stay sexy.

A brief review of a Tritton offering and a shout out to MarkMan23 for all his support!

We will let the video do all the talking on this one! Thank you Triton Technologies and MarkMan23!

 

Mad Catz has released parts to change your FightStick so it is compatible for Mortal Kombat. The Top Panel includes a new button layout and new artwork. A separate bundle includes new buttons. Opening your FightStick will void your warranty.

MadCatz just announced the Combat FightStick Top Panel. Obviously there are some licensing issues, because MadCatz is really trying to tell you this panel is for use with Mortal Kombat, without actually saying Mortal Kombat. That's cool right? Check out the new lay out:

KOF XIII character combo tutorials

By: blazemanx Jun 30, 2011 | 5 Comments

KOF XIII character specific combo videos.

I came across these awesome character specific combo videos for KOF XIII. KOF will never be as popular as street fighter and that is understandable but i really hope more people get into it. It is one of my favorite franchises and i think it would be great if KOF had a following similar to street fighter. I intend to get this when it drops this holiday season and i hope many people will pick it up so KOF can gain more exposure. Here are some awesome vids for fans and non fans to get you hype.

My Little Pony: Fighting is Magic Livestream Preview

By: Daisymare Feb 29, 2012 | 8 Comments | Updated: Feb 29, 2012

This is a three part question and answer preview of the current build of the game Fighting is Magic. New characters and moves are displayed new audio is heard and voice acting is now added. Special appearance of Fluttershy and talks of ports to Mac.

This game is building up a huge amount of hype not just in the Brony community but in other fighting communities simply because the game play is actually interesting for a basic fighting game made by an indie studio. The team ManeSix is doing things that shouldn't be able to be done with such a basic fighting engine. This game will be a great demo of what to expect when they decide to start producing their own original content. Watch the videos and keep an eye out for the accidental display of power that is Fluttershy.
