Amazon.com has listed Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition for $40. We already know that it's coming out at the end of June, but price for the Disc version wasn't announced. Check it out.
Now before anyone freak out, look at it the way I see it. For everyone who already owns Super Street Fighter IV we get the DLC for $15 to add to our game. For those who don't own a copy of Super, can get the Arcade Edition on disc with Super included for one low price. I agree with Capcom if this is the price they are going with. I will most likely buy the disc version, because then i can take it anywhere, I don't have to worry about DLC and being online. Also this is great for the tournament scence. Disc based is the way to go in my opinion.

Since I've reached my 3rd Strike, I think it's time to express my feeling towards one of Gouki Jones' favorite Street Fighters.... Birdie (What a joke).
I love Street Fighter with its great cast of wacky characters, special moves, and one on one fighting. There have been some characters that have left quite a mark on the memories of gamers around the world. That is what you expect from a game with Fighters from around the world.
There is one character in particular that I want to talk about. That character would be Birdie. Why would anyone want to talk about this trash heap of a character? Well I've noticed that Gouki Jones here on Gouki.com has been constantly waiting for his return (why anyone would want him back is beyond me)
Lets start by taking a look at Birdie Himself
Birdie in Street Fighter
Birdie in Street Fighter Alpha, Alpha 2, Alpha 3
Do you see a problem here? What the heck happened to his Skin tone from Street Fighter to Alpha?
Here is a little back story for Birdie
Prior to his criminal career, Birdie was a professional wrestler, teaming with occasional rival Titanic Tim (from the Saturday Night Slam Masters series) as the "500 Million Trillion Powers." He turned to a life of crime when his wrestling career ended, doing some street fighting on the side to add to his income.
His notoriety got him invited to the first World Warrior tournament. He was suffering from a particularly nasty strain of flu, however, and lost his fight with Ryu.
Despite this setback, Birdie rose up the criminal ranks. He eventually became aware of an organization called Shadaloo and managed to use his criminal reputation to join them.
Sneaking into a Shadaloo data room, he learned about the Psycho Drive machine, not aware that M. Bison was watching him. Thinking he could use it to overthrow Bison and become lord of Shadoloo himself, he set out to find it. Bison sent Balrog to kill Birdie, but Birdie convinced Balrog to help him instead by telling him how the Psycho Drive could make them powerful. Hindered by Balrog's incompetence, however, Birdie couldn't find the Drive before it exploded.
It is likely that Birdie remained with Shadaloo until it finally collapsed, and is back on the streets.
Birdie's Win quote from Street Fighter Alpha 3
"Oh, what!? ... Before? I looked pale because I was sick!!"
I just wanted to briefly talk about Birdie and how I think he is trash and I'm glad he got his ass whooped by Abel in the new Street Fighter 4 comic series. The guy is a joke and is too stupid to realize that Dan is better than he is.
Don't be a Jimmy like Birdie!

Gouki.com caught up with Justin Wong and EG MaRN at CES this past Friday in a exclusive interview. They were asked about their dream characters, who they are using in MvC3 and what went down at the secret fight club from Thursday night.
Big thanks to Justin Wong and EG MaRN for giving us their time at CES over the weekend. The Gouki.com seven footer Cinderkin spotted Justin and Marn, chased them down and backed them up against the wall for an exclusive interview. Both Justin and Marn were super cool and answered questions about who they are using in Marvel VS Capcom 3. How the game played at Thursday nights secret fight club. Both gave a really cool quick promo for the Gouki.com Marvel Vs Capcom 3 giveaway. Thanks a lot for the interview guys.

A brand new editorial from yours truly: should we be tired of sequels?
I have a confession to make, if you don't mind: I'm tired of sequels. I've played a handful of them from this generation; even when the overall quality of the game is shining (Uncharted 2, for instance), I hate the sense of deja vu that I experience. And it doesn't help that it seems like half the games that come out anymore end with a number.
I mentioned Uncharted 2, so let's start there. Is it an improvement over the original? Most certainly; I think that's a fair assessment. And while I did notice those improvements when I was playing, it hardly seemed to matter much in the end. By the end of the first one, I was pretty tired of Nathan "Cocksucking" Drake's adventures (yes, I hate Nathan Drake as a character!). I wasn't very far into Uncharted 2 before I could barely take it anymore. If I hadn't spent $40 on the game and felt obligated to continue, I would have quit then and there.
Now let's look at Mass Effect 2. Again, there were great improvements made over the first Mass Effect - although admittedly, the first Mass Effect was much superior to the first Uncharted. The problem was that I felt like I could have popped in the first Mass Effect and gotten such a similar experience that it was hardly exciting. In fact, at one point I did start playing the first one, and I barely skipped a beat. And for the record, Shepherd wasn't much more interesting than Nathan Drake, so as far as I'm concerned they can both go take a flying leap together.
I think I'm starting to see the problem here: video game characters aren't typically interesting enough to span out multiple stories and remain interesting. Maybe that's why I beat Fable 2 with a smile and groaned my way through Uncharted 2, even though Fable 2 was a vastly inferior game.
And what about the gameplay? Do the gameplay "evolutions" amount to all that much? Did Bioware's changes make Mass Effect 2 feel like much more than the first one? I didn't think so. Mass Effect 1 was fresh; Mass Effect 2 was polished but basically more of the same. I don't know about anyone else, but I'm a bit concerned that we're willing to wait two years and pay full price again for refinements that really should have been there in the first place. Oh yeah, and you're also getting a sloppy-seconds story too. I guess there's that much.
So what would I have you do? Would I have you give the industry the finger until they decide to stop rehashing? No, not at all. What I would like is for gamers to demand higher-quality the first time around; I would like the gaming community to care about quality instead of what the hype machine is putting out.
Maybe if we do that, crappy refinement sequels will be weeded out, and we can be left with the sequels that really matter - and all that extra downtime would let developers give us new experiences. Talk about your win-win.

Shadows of the Damned isn't the only one with digital CD's...
Alice: Madness Returns is coming out next month and the pre-order deal has already shown up on the Gamestop website. Unfortunately, it is another digital downlaod CD. (Same as Shadow of the Damned, see story here http://gouki.com/Story/Details/shadows-of-the-damned-pre-order-isnt-as-crazy-as-you-may-think).
The Alice music download is 9 songs from the soundtrack featuring new music from Chris Verenna (used to be in Nine Inch Fails) It says a code will be sent to you within 2 business days to download it. But here is what confuses me a bit:
It says "9 songs from the soundtrack" , is it not the whole soundtrack? Not too sure, hopefully something from the official site will come up soon. A second game going with the digital CD, I hope this isn't becoming a "thing". Catherine and Disgea 4 are still coming out with actual CD'S and art, which is awesome. What do you think of this and what do you prefer? What are some ups an downs of digital CD's in your opinion? Leave a comment below.
