For a lot of people we were just playing games. But for me... For Me It Was Tuesday!
As of today Gouki.com will no longer be hosting For Me It Was Tuesday (#FMIWT) at GameWorks in Las Vegas, NV. We would like to thank everyone from the Las Vegas community who supported us in keeping our weekly gaming meetup going. Thank you to Scott, Daysha & Greg for their hospitality at GameWorks.
When we started #FMIWT in 2014, it was just a few people in the back of the eSports lounge. We grew to over 100 people every Tuesday. Our very first Saturday tournament at GameWorks last year peaked at over 90 entries. Vegas Violence II had the most out-of-state players than any other tournament in Las Vegas. (Except EVO) We then moved to the front of GameWorks in the restaurant, but were quickly shuffled into the party rooms because of the pace that we were growing. We ran over 40 tournaments at GameWorks. We hosted the official EVO party in 2015. Participated & helped run multiple community events, including Hunniecon.
We are leaving because we want to do larger scale events. Something we can not do at GameWorks. There is no room for us to grow at GameWorks.
In the coming days we will have more announcements. We will continue to partner with Anime Revolution & we will announce another new partnership soon. Thank you to the Melee crowd that brought the largest group most of the time. Thank you to the Smash 4 community, you guys are crazy, but you are awesome. Thank you to the old school boys. We appreciate the care you take of your collections & when you brought them to #FMIWT it was an honor.
Details on the first DLC pack.
The price is set to be 400MS points or 5.00 on PSN, not but but what are they offering? Some new costumes (I know what a surprise), Shadow Mode will be there, Jill and Shuma are in (sorry if that was the only reason you picked up the S.E.).
If this will be how they roll out the DLC it should add value to getting it, but it feels like stuff that should have been in game. I know plenty of you have bought the costumes for SFIV but what happened to that stuff being unlockable in the game? Am I the only one who was proud of dumping in Hours just to be the only person you knew with Zack's Alien costume in DOA 3? I know that there is a group of people who want it all just handed to them, but that was part of the fun in beating the game. Who's getting the hook-up with pack 1? Thor, Captain America and Iron Man on the Marvel side, and Dante, Chris Redfield and Ryu on the Capcom side, not a ton, but hey they need the money right. But the Patriot skin for Iron Man, now they are mixing characters. Maybe we should expect an Iceman / Silver Surfer after all.
To say I have mixed feelings would be an understatement, but in this case I think Shadow Mode alone is worth the $5.00. We'll just have to wait for round 2 to see if they are going to milk it or really have something to add to the game.
Don't be a jimmy. You going to buy it, pissed, or really just don't care? Let's hear it.
I love Doujin fighters and not too many people talk about them. Here's my review of a game I've been playing for a couple of years; BigBangBeat. Maybe it will get some of you interested in doujin fighters.
If you aren't familiar with Doujin fighters, they are fan-made fighting games that for the most part you can download for free online. A lot of them are actually pretty good and some are turned into official games (Like Melty Blood). Unfortunately many doujin's don't work well or have sketchy fighting systems. I bring you my review of one of my favorites: BigBangBeat- 1st Impression. A PC game.

For reasons unknown inFAMOUS 2 is giving me goose bumps. I did not like inFAMOUS, but the more and more I see of this sequel the more I want to play it.
I'm not usually one to talk up sequels, with some of my favorite games being "dumb down" recently. Bioshock for example was one man against the house of Big Daddys. You had a gun in one hand and the plasmids in the other -you couldn't use both at the same time- you had to strategically play the field. In Bioshock 2, you were a Big Daddy and you could use two weapons at the same time. The hacking? I can't believe they changed the hacking in Bioshock 2, that mini-pipe-flow-game was a solid game in it's own. I really missed that. Fable is another series that seemed to have taken a serious down turn with it's most recent sequel. Although a little more deep in some areas, I did not enjoy Fable III as much as Fable II. Who takes headshots out of their game? Why were the jobs switched from a meter game to a guitar hero esque venture? I didn't do any of the jobs in Fable III.
Then we have the exclusive Sony sequels and they seem to have the opposite effect on me. Uncharted I played, but couldn't get into. I found the controls clunky and the overall experience of the game uninteresting. Uncharted 2 however, changed all that for me and I will tell you it is the best game on PS3. If you haven't played Uncharted 2 and you own a PS3, you are totally missing out on an excellent gaming experience.
When I first saw that amazing gameplay trailer for inFAMOUS 2, I watched it a until my eyes bled giant blue tornados. The on-screen action and effects and damage and chaos, looked amazing. My pants are tingling just thinking about it now. I really want to get my hands on inFAMOUS 2 ASAP. Finally at CES 2011 I got to play inFAMOUS 2 and it was the same demo from the previously released video, which I had seen plenty. I railed that demo in record time, finished it before the Jimmy in the Sony booth got through his little speech about the demo.
Now we have the Duality trailer for inFAMOUS 2 which was just premiered on GT.TV over the weekend and I must say this game continues to impress me. Very clever trailer with the Angel and Devil on the shoulder type theme. Finally showing off the good and evil look for the game. Cole's face seems to take a little damage ala Commander Shepard and he even says that he can't even recognize himself anymore. Obviously the evil route there. Here check out it, it's pretty slick.
inFAMOUS 2 Duality Trailer
Everything is looking like inFAMOUS 2 is going to kick ass over inFAMOUS and that's a good thing for all of us gamers. One downside to all of the recent inFAMOUS 2 news is the game will be released on June 7th, the very same day E3 2011 will begin and the internet will be getting trolled to death with other video game news. My take has always been, games that come out on or around the same days of E3, seem to get over shadowed by news and excitement from from the big show. So good luck to inFAMOUS 2 there.
Also if you didn't know, inFAMOUS 2 continues the new streak in gaming to have an over the top and most, most ridiculous Collector's Edition. The "Hero Edition" comes with a statue, a backpack, tons of other goodies, some exclusive DLC and of course the game. ZOMG.
This bad boy set is $99.99 inFAMOUS 2 Hero Edition.
Thanks for reading and please leave your comments.
Team Gouki had a chance to play Gotham City Impostors at the Warner Bros. booth at E3 2011.
FnJimmy and I had finished playing some Arkham City and were lured into the depths of the Warner Brothers booth by this fantastic booth babe. FnJimmy has some NSFW photos from another angle I think. She's the official BatRastered booth babe of the year for staying in character and talking smack.Read full story...
This Street Fighter IV PC Mod trailer showcases some really cool character skins and redone stages. Showing the true potential of SFIV on PC. Really Cool vid from August 2010.
Did you notice some of those characters? My favorite is the Robert and Yuri Skin for Dan and Sakura. Art of Fighting is still one of my favorite fighting games. Which ones are your favorites? Tell us in the comments. Don't be a Jimmy!
GoukiJones & FnJimmy talk about Ubisoft & some random Jimmy walks thru the shot. E3 2013. Some fuckin' nuab walking thru the shot.
Shout out to Ubisoft, thank you for allowing us to raid your booth & check out all of the games. Well we didn't see Watch Dogs, but I don't need to waste time at E3 on a game that is coming out in the next couple of months. We saw it during the press conference & it pretty much looked the same last year & was still on schedule. That demo was going to be basically more of the same.
We saw the Stick of Truth, now everybody remember this was a THQ game last year & was actually supposed to be released in March. Well THQ crashed & Ubisoft got the rights to this game. So I was interested to see how/if any of the game was changed. The last time I saw it was at SDCC. Now you can fight on the outside of instanced fights. Oh man, what am I trying to say. Say you're walking around in the over world, well in South Park you have the option to use a sling shot or whatever they had & take out 1 of the baddies, then run up to the guy next to him, touch him & then go into battle. I don't really know how well that is going to work in the game overall, but it seemed pretty smooth during the demo. BTW this game looks just like the show, it's amazing. Super hype!
AC17, skipped it. Don't care.
The car racing game where you're taking down money trucks. Looks cool. But it's cars, it's bullshit.
We saw the Guitar game. People will never play anything like Guitar Hero again, when you can play with a real guitar & actually learn a skill. It's expensive yeah, but just do what BatRastered says, go to the Pawn Shop & get some Jimmy ass guitar for like $40 bucks & start playing.
The Division was the only really unique thing we saw. Unfortunately it was the same exact demo as the press conference. Maybe there was a little more explained to us, but basically the same shit. This game looks dope, we of course had tons of questions about how the open world & VS stuff works, but they weren't talking about any of that right now. Classic E3. Got some cool swag tho.

In this episode I show off my new level 35 gear & discuss tips on how to make gil at this level.
1 of my more important tips I've discovered recently is skipping the node that doesn't do anything. Ok, you know how there is a group of 4 nodes where ever you are gathering? 1 is +5% on HQ, 1 is +10% on Gathering, 1 does bonus gathering attempts & 1 is always blank. This is at level 38 btw. Skip the 1 that is blank. That way you can get the +5% bonus to HQ every 3 turns. Pro-tips.
Thanks for watching. Don't be a Jimmy!

Strong hints and footage of SWTOR's "Super Secret Space Project."
Do you like to still play a failed MMO where you'll now be able to shoot at jimmys in space? If so this is worth a look!
Here's your first look of what actually gameplay will be like for Rage. Rage is the new shooter published by Bethesda and developed by id Software.
Borderlands fans, let me hear you. This has got to remind you of that game a little bit. However, Rage will feature actually vehicle combat. But you still have to drive out into the middle of a death storm to find an upgrade for your defibrillator. The guns don't look too original, but this trailer only shows off a few. The Jimmy playing is a complete nub with that crossbow thingy. And the left handed boomerang of death, same thing as the Bloodwing. Just sayin' ...

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.
I know most of us love fighting games and we need to suppoprt KOF and SNK. So i'll try to bring as much attention to this up coming game as i can. Let us know what you think and don't be a jimmy.
