Do you own a FightStick, but have trouble storing it or traveling with it? Then you’re in luck as a quick release JLF shaft called The Link by PhreakMods has been re-released and is better than ever.
Do you own a FightStick, but have trouble storing it or traveling with it? Then you’re in luck as a quick release JLF shaft called The Link by PhreakMods has been re-released and is better than ever. What exactly is The Link? The Link is a redesign of the Sanwa JLF shaft, which is the standard in a good majority of FightSticks on the market. It’s been designed so that once you stop gaming and need to store or travel with your FightStick you can remove the shaft that is sticking out and in the way.
Why this device is such a good product is because of how easy it is to install and use. The Link comes in three parts: the base, the top and the collar operation piece. All you need to do to use it after installation is to simply pull up on the spring loaded collar to release the shaft from the base. The same is done when putting it back on. Included with The Link is a 3mm hex key which allows you to tighten or loosen the ball top if need be without the need to open up the entire FightStick.
Installation of The Link is a breeze if you’ve got the tools to open up your FightStick. All you do is open up the FightStick to access the JLF assembly, remove the e-clip over original JLF base and swap it for The Link base, then replace the e-clip. It’s really that easy and only takes 10 to 15 minutes.
I’ve use The Link now for 2 weeks and have had absolutely no issues while using it. This device is amazingly simple and practical. I used to travel for work and it was always a hassle to bring my FightStick with me due to not having room for the stick with shaft and ball top connected. I’ve also had the unfortunate mishap of my FightStick dropping ball top down and breaking. The Link alleviates those issues and I love it.
Another thing to note is that The Link doesn’t come off during normal play unless you absolutely want it off. It’s designed so well that it feels like using the basic Sanwa JLF shaft and doesn’t affect play at all. It took less than 10 minutes to get used to it and most users won’t even notice a difference while using it. It’s also worth noting that when The Link isn’t in the FightStick there is a hole where it was. I highly advice purchasing the extra dust washer and black cover cap to keep everything protected.
The link is available for purchase at FocusAttack.com for $35 RRP. I highly recommend this product to anyone and everyone that owns a FightStick, you won’t regret owning one!
It's here, another dose of Skyrim DLC for you Jimmys to get your hands on.
Centered around making you a domesticated hero of Skyrim, the Heartfire DLC adds the ability to purchase land, build a home, raise children, and other nonsense. You can even build gardens and fish while some lady takes care of it all as you go off killing dragons.
This doesn't seem like much fun to me considering how awesome Skyrim is. If you dig it though it's out now for $5.

11 bit studios are back with a sequel to last years’ “Anomaly Warzone Earth” simply titled “Anomaly 2”. Is this tower offense game an improvement over the original or is it a sequel that could have stayed buried? Find out in the Gouki.com Review
Earth has been hit hard by mechanical alien like creatures and now is a frozen wasteland. Humanity is struggling to survive and all hope is left on a few convoys searching for supplies to recover and rebuild the lost super weapon “Project Shockwave”. The campaign is 14 missions that recap a lot of the first game while easing new players in so that nothing is missed. It’s roughly 5-6 hours which is short for a game like this. Although short it’s a game that doesn’t feel too stale with little recycling of any kind during the campaign.Read full story...

Get ready for the next battle, Tekken Tag Tournament 2 is finally here. Is it worth your money? Find out in the Gouki.com Review. Don’t be a Jimmy!
The time has come to pull out all the stops and do battle in the latest Tekken Tag Tournament. This time it’s bigger, better, and all around more badass than ever before. Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (TTT 2) is filled with over 50 fighters, new stages, new combos, and more. The latest 3D fighting game has made it to consoles, but is it worth your money though? Read on below.
TTT 2 offers a ton of game modes for you to spend hours upon hours in. Arcade mode returns as well as Ghost Battle which pits you against and unlimited amount of opponents’ ghost data as you rank up your fighter from Beginner to Tekken Lord. Time Attack, Survival, Versus, Practice, and for the first time in a fighting game Fight Lab. If you’ve ever felt like a fighting game was just too hard to get into because the moves look to complex or you just don’t understand the game mechanics, well then you have nothing to worry about with TTT 2. Fight Lab is a fleshed out tutorial system which allows you to learn the basics as well as the advanced mechanics of the game. It teaches you the ins and outs of the game, from high and low attacks, defense, tagging, launchers and ground bounces, and side stepping, as well as allowing you to fully customize your own fighter named Combot. Fight Lab truly is a groundbreaking feature that more fighting games need to implement.
Although TTT 2 has a ton of offline modes to choose from, online is where it thrives. Tekken 6 suffered with a really bad and unplayable online experience. Namco Bandai has put a ton of effort into making sure TTT 2 has the online longevity and I say that it truly nails it in every way. There are two game modes right now which are Ranked and 8 slot lobby Player matches. The flow of the menus are amazing, rarely can you find a game which allows for match after match without being kicked back to a menu. While you wait for an opponent the game allows you to practice your moves while you wait. When an opponent is found the game shows you the players’ connection to you and gives you the option to opt in or out, this is a great addition because everyone hates having matches in lag. Speaking of lag TTT 2 doesn’t have any, with the ability to set your search options to only connect to players with great ping you won’t have to worry about lag at all. I even did 20 matches with a friend who lives on the other side of the US and is known for having a really poor connection (unplayable) with zero lag. Whichever netcode is being used here is by far the best in the genre.
The gameplay is so smooth and the animations are clean. This game is filled with thousands of moves with no slow down whatsoever. Although a Tag fighting game TTT 2 allows you to pick between either 1 vs 1, 2 vs 2, or 2 vs 1 including pair play for online. I’ve noticed that solo play is much stronger than tag play, although I see this being possibly changed in an update. Every character can be partnered up with another and some have special tag combos and tag throws when properly paired. With over 50 fighters including almost every single fighter from the Tekken franchise you have a ton of tag team options to choose from.
TTT 2 is an absolutely beautiful game in every sense of the word, fighters looked detailed as well as the stages. These aren’t your ordinary stages either, with stages from all over the world. Some have crazy backgrounds like the festival parade with floats, or the high school with all the students cheering you on. Fighters actually get dirty during matches as well. The details behind this game are phenomenal. Each fighter can also be fully customized with clothing, weapons, and special effects. There are hundreds of costumes to choose from all included without costing extra. The game even lets you save up to 10 different costumes for each fighter.
The games audio shines as well. Every fighter speaks in their native tongue which is a nice touch for authenticity. Each stage has music that really gets you in the mood to kick someone’s ass, including the newly implemented Tekken Tunes which allows you to fully customize the games soundtrack to your liking. Not only does this allow you to choose the music from the game to edit, but you can even take tracks from your favorite albums and put them into the game. Feel like fighting to Rock, Rap, Country, or the theme song to Pokémon you now have that option. Tekken Tunes is an awesome feature and more games should implement it.
Tekken Tag Tournament 2 damn near has everything a fighting game should have. No game of the genre has come close to what TTT 2 has done. They really nailed this game and even if you aren’t familiar with the 3D fighting game style, with modes like Fight Lab you can’t go wrong. Although not my favorite fighting game series, I can’t deny that this game is the best in the genre. Namco Bandai has raised the bar for all other companies to follow. If you love fighting games you’ll love this game. If you like fighting games you’ll love this game. If you hate fighting games you’ll love this game. It has so much content and should be awarded for offering this much. We Are Tekken!

Capcom nabbed the rights to the recently unveiled IP Remember me. Developer Dontnod stated the game was originally exclusive for the PS3.
Previously a Sony Exclusive under the title Adrift is now a multiplatform game newly titled Remember Me. Set for a release date of May 2013 Dontnod has been working on this title for the last 4 years.
According to Co-Founder of Dontnod Oskar Guilbert the team originally started out as a five man team and has now grown to over 100.
"We didn't show the game last year, but we showed concept artwork. This project is not exactly the same, it is an evolution. The concept of what we had with Sony was different," stated Guilbert.
He also added "Sony wanted to focus on a different type of game and we don't really fit with that. But we're in a very good relationship with them. They stopped a number of games last year at Sony and we took back the IP rights and were able to continue to develop it thanks to the support of the investors. We were then able to sign the game to a publisher whose portfolio is a better fit for the game,"
With the rumors of the next generation of titles hitting next year, most developers have been content with just releasing sequels. I’ve noticed this with that being very evident with the high amount of HD Collections and such as of recently this generation. Most are waiting until the next generation to release new IPs.
Dontnod has other ideas. "New IP on the current generation is a good thing because the installed base is huge. And with not so many new IP titles we have much more space on the market, especially as we're not waiting to launch in a new platform. It's a challenge but we feel it can work.”Guilbert mentions.
"It's the right time for us. We've announced the release date and now we've got nine months of communication to work on."
“Remember Me” will be releasing next year on the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. Check back at Gouki.com for more info on the game as it comes.

Capcom has released a new trailer for the upcoming HD remake of Okami. Looks like it's only on the Playstation.
This is looking pretty sweet. I never got to play Okami back in the day, and this would be a perfect game to put on the PS Vita. The Vita so far has a pretty lackluster set of games in my opinion. I want to support the hardware, but I've got no games to play on it. Capcom do me a solid and release this for the Vita please!

In what could be the most offensive collectors editions I've seen in a while and priced at nearly $170 Capcom is releasing only in the UK. Here is the unboxing video.
You've got to be kidding me here. This Jimmy has got his hands all over the thing and continually states that it's going back in the box to be shipped out to someone. This is probably how all those Jimmys lost their bobble heads for Borderlands 2. You're telling me that you couldn't get a collectors edition for promo purposes? I would lose my mind if someone opened up my stuff put there hands all over it and sent it out. FnJimmys!

Resident Evil 6 is only a week away and Capcom has uploaded the newest trailer from the Tokyo Game Show 2012.
I am well known for my love of the Resident Evil franchise and I am extremely excited for Resident Evil 6. I've been a fan since I first played through Resident Evil Directors Cut on the original Playstation. Chris was always my favorite character, up until Resident Evil 5 when he started juicing. Leon I was never a fan of, and I am really hoping that Claire, Jill or any of the remaining survivors makes an appearance in RE6.
Are you going to be picking up Resident Evil 6 next week? Tell us what you think in the comments. Don't be a Jimmy!
