The world of warcraft is hitting Xbox, virgins across the world rejoice!
Well my friends the day has come, storm clouds gather over Xbox Live as the fabled land of untouched virgins decends upon all unsurspecting paitrains of Xbox Live. This news sent chills down my spine. To think soon millions of dweebs will flood our ranks and with them will enter the many fanatics who punch holes in their walls when things dont go their way. Kids who run away from home and die from starvation.
Well friends this is the end of days, Ragnarok, 2012 times 1 million. life as we know it is about to change. When you want to sit down and enjoy some casual shooting with your closest friends, they however will be chasing the green dragons of Averoth. Soon they will stop talking, bairthing, eating, and finaly, they will just die from the addiction. The only ray of light this brings is the kick ass episode of intervention it will spawn.

The achievements for MvC3 are out and rumor a third darkstalkers rep.
"Make a team composed of those who dwell in the darkness, and win a match. (Arcade/Xbox LIVE only)"
Will we be seeing another Darkstalkers rep? What do you guys think?
Also what do you guys think of the Achievements in general? They seem pretty solid. Not too challenging though. I guess we'll have to wait and see when the game comes out though.
You only need one thing to be a part of the action this May! Don't be a Jimmy! Get on the Halo Reach multiplayer beta
Jimmy this does look excited! There's tons of new guns and modes. Flying Spartans, running, rolling, melee combos and so much more. Check out the video below. You can't play the Halo Reach multiplayer beta if you don't have a copy of Halo 3: ODST JIMAH!
last time was just a tease, now Yosuke Hayashi has some info for us
Nerd Reactor has a short interview with Yosuke Hayashi the project lead on Ninja Gaiden 3. He says there will be multiplayer online. Not sure what that's going to be, but I'm excited. They also say it'll be on both PS3 and Xbox 360. No new characters, that sucks and makes multi player harder to speculate on. They also want the game to be more brutal, big smile. They have all been gore-fests but they want you to feel what it's like to gut someone. But they say that it'll be a game for everyone that hardcore fans will still enjoy.
Thank you Nerd Reactor for making today even better http://nerdreactor.com/2011/04/04/ninja-gaiden-3-to-be-darker-and-more-user-friendly/

Time to see what cool bonuses you get for pre-ordering the highly awaited Uncharted 3! Also info on the collectors edition.
Everyone game has pre-order deals from several places and expensive Collector Editions. Being one of PS3's most hyped exclusives, Uncharted 3 is not left out.
As you see above, you get a working Traveling Chest replica, that holds everything within the Collectors Edition. That is a stee-lbook case with the ring on it that holds the game, a full-size replica of Drake's belt and necklace (with Sir Frances Drake's Ring) and a statue of Nathan Drake. This will ocst you $99.99 Here are the pre-order bonuses from a few retailers:
GAMESTOP: Creepy Crawler Kickback.
When you score a certain amount of medals you can turn into a swarm of deadly creatures to overwhelm your opponents as long as you’ve got time left on the Kickback countdown timer. Looks like something from the mummy, godlike!
BestBuy: Regeneration Booster Unlocked Early: Speeds up healing in multiplayer.
Amazon: 1 Kickback and 2 Weapon mods
Amazon going bro-status with 3 items when you pre-order. The Carpet Bomb Kickback lets you throw out three grenades with one throw! The two gun mods allow you to increase the clip size of the guns.
Wal-Mart: Laser Sight and Weapon Mod
You get Callout Weapon Mod, which allows you to equip the AK-47 with laser sight that allows your ENTIRE TEAM to see the location of the target you are targeting. Insane?
Other places including Target, Buy.com and JR.com will award you with exclusive Uncharted 3 PSN avatar and XMB theme for pre-orders.
How does all of that sound? Out of all the pre-order deals which ones are most appealing to you? The Laser sight allowing the entire team to see an enemy from Wal-mart is CRAZY. Also the Creepy Crawler from Gamestop seems the most fun and visually scary, not sure how game-breaking it is though. It is interesting being in this era of gaming where Collectors Editions have become so popular with figurines and steel cases. Don't be a jimmy, let us know what you think.

Are You Ready? Then Let's Get It On!
It’s time to bring the pain with some MMA.
It’s hard not to compare EA Sports MMA to the UFC games, but it’s inevitable. They are both good games in their own right, but how good is MMA? EA has out done themselves with MMA, great gameplay, great game modes, great features, and an online system that actually works. Is this game perfect? MMA is a great game, but there are still things that hold it back from being the number 1 contender of the Mixed Martial Arts genre. Find out why down below.
EA MMA has a career mode that is almost the exact opposite of UFC’s game. There are a few similarities, such as creating a fighter, choosing their gear, and celebration victories. MMA, however, has a ton of options that UFC didn’t have. Things like photo game face, which allows you to put your face into the game, character entrances, the ability to have your full name called out instead of just hearing a nickname. Speaking of nicknames EA MMA has well over 100 nicknames to choose from, including my new personal favorite “Too Lazy to Pick a Name”. It is pretty sweet hearing the announcer call out my full name when I dominate my opponent. It’s something that I would have liked to see in the UFC game. When it comes to actually playing through career mode, MMA stands out. Instead of feeling like you’re grinding to make your fighter better, with a boring schedule of train, rest, train, rest, fight. MMA legend Bas Rutten has you on an eight week training schedule, that doesn’t have you micro managing your fighter’s stats. Instead what you are given is the ability to choose what you want to train, and then you actually perform the training regimen in real time. Not only does this help keep the career from feeling like a chore, it also helps teach the games fundamentals.
When it comes to learning new moves for your fighter, you have the ability to travel around the world to train with some of the best gyms in the world. All Ranging from gyms in Brazil, Japan, Thailand, England, and even Randy Coture’s gym Extreme Couture, and more. Each fight is chosen for you by Bas Rutten, which at first seems a little boring, but each fight really tests your skills that you’ve learned during training. You chose which leagues you want to start in, and as you climb up the ladder to earn a title shot. Once you acquire the belt, you then have a choice between two more leagues to fight in. The beauty of this is that you’re not just fighting in the same league with the same rules. EA MMA gives you the chance to travel the world and experience mixed martial arts in a whole new way.
EA Sports MMA offers gameplay similar to EA’s Fight Night series, where you control your fighter’s strikes with the right analog stick. MMA calls this Total Strike Control, where your punches and kicks are all tailored to the right stick. At first it may seem confusing to most people, but with a little practice the controls become easy and fluid. Every strike feels like the real thing, every slam, takedown, and submission has a realistic feel to it. For those who prefer to use buttons to strike and grapple, the game has a button configuration for you. Speaking of buttons, with the default control setup you achieve takedowns, submissions, clinches, and reversals with the face buttons. It sounds simple, but EA Sports has managed to take the button mashing out of the game, and give you gameplay that takes having an actual strategy.
When it comes to applying submissions in this game, you have to press a button while making sure you don’t drain your stamina. What this gives you is a sort of chess match style play with your opponent, rather than seeing who can mash the buttons or spin the stick faster. At the end of the day, you won’t have blisters and bruises in your hands. Which is a great thing because the clock in this game isn’t accelerated, you are in the ring for the full 15 minutes.
Another big thing that I enjoyed with this game is that you don’t just fight with the same rules every time. EA MMA has delved further into the sport of mixed martial arts with rules from Japan, Brazil, and even Europe. What you get is a whole new appreciation for the sport. It’s also fun to go to Japan and have the right to soccer kick your opponent in the face while he is down, which is against the rules here in the US.
Overall the gameplay is solid, but it may be difficult to pick up at first. Making the UFC game a better choice for the casual gamer.
The audio work in MMA is pretty good. With your rock, metal, and hip-hop tunes that complement the sport itself. The commentary is done by the legend Mauro Ranallo and Frank Shamrock, which is pretty good for the most part. The major problem with it is that sometimes they state the obvious way too much. “He went for a kick. He threw a hard punch.” Not as bad as that, but you get the picture. Bas Rutten on the other hand offers a great voice over performance, and actually gets you into the sport of MMA.
The game looks great, but suffers from some bland looking fighters at certain moments. What is done well is that with every strike, every block, and even grapple you can see the muscles in the fighters tense up. A big problem though is that while there is blood in the game, you can go a full 15 minutes of a fight and barely see any of it. Whether the blood is on the mat or on the fighter. To be honest I find that a little disappointing. Not to mention there is no between the rounds corner cam to even see if you’ve damaged your opponent. Not too sure about the decision to do that. What I did find weird though is that during the replays I when the fighters look their best. It’s odd that the fighters don’t look as good throughout the entire fight.
This is where MMA really shines. Online play in the last UFC game wasn’t good at all. It barely worked and when it did the match would disconnect before they really got started. In MMA you don’t have to worry about that. The best mode so far would be the EA Sports Live Broadcast, where you get to watch real fights streamed live with actual commentary. What makes Live Broadcast so cool is that it’s allows the users to make their own hype videos and post them online. If they make a video that is cool enough or gets enough votes, EA will choose that person to participate in a Live Broadcast where they will fight real people in front of a real audience and win real prizes. It’s a really cool feature and I’m looking forward to seeing if it can take off.
With its great online play, good variety of modes, fun gameplay, and innovative methods of presentation EA Sports MMA is a sure fire pick for the hardcore fans. If you didn’t pick up the last UFC game and are looking for a fun mixed martial arts title with a lot of potential, MMA is for you. I usually don’t recommend buying EA Sports titles as they will have a new one every year, but MMA gets the job done for its first time in the Cage.
BOTTOM LINE: BUY IT!

Got my hands the new DLC for Dishonored last week. I beat it. I found some weird glitches happening. You can check out my thots here & take a look at this weird screen glitching. Prolly just the XBOX being from the nubfarm.
It’s no secret at this point. This Jimmy right here -this Jimmy trying to write out this story- is a BIG FAN of Dishonored. I got the Witches of Brigmore last week from Bethesda, shout out Bethesda. They love the FnJimmy Golden Video Review, they tell me. Sure. I had know idea what this DLC was about, I don’t have any of the other DLC & I can’t tell you too many DLC’s that I’ve liked in the past.
Swerve! This 1 is tight. You play a completely different character, one you -as the main character- actually killed in the Main Story. He was a boss. Daud. So you start out as Daud & you have to fight off the attack from the Main Story. Really sweet stuff. I think it’s a great idea & this DLC was off to a good start.
Daud has a bunch of different moves. He can summon assassin’s to fight alongside of him. (That was the first 1 I upgraded fully.) You can also improve his running, jumping, stealth just like the main character, Corvo. Daud seemed to move WAY faster than Corvo when I maxed him out. He was at least twice as fast as any guard running after him & I had him crouched! But he is the assassin class in the game. The DLC definitely gives you a nice feeling of something different & new with the differences in this playable character.
I got 2 days of gameplay out of this. Prolly a total of 8 hours. That was only playing thru once & not on the maximum difficult. So there is definitely some replay value. And I am almost fairly certain that there are multiple endings.
There are tons of new enemies as well & the DLC takes you to a new Location. BUUUUUUUUUUT the graphics aren’t that great already in Dishonored, but these weird glitches don’t help. Sometimes I would stop to look around the room cuz I thot hidden shit was flashing at me. Check out this clip.
Regardless that little glitching -like I said, it’s prolly just the Xbox- this DLC is worth it & it’s fun! Dishonored is fun! Check out my full review with Bullet Points.
Thanks for reading.
Brutal Legend and Uncharted 2: Among Thieves ZOMG!
I didn't think that the two lead off games would ever be Brutal Legend or Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. I would like to say though ... I'm kind of getting into the Brutal Legend. It's totally not a music genre I'm excited about, but I like a little rock and roll. The game is like an album cover of old metal rock bands record covers. The music is authentic. First Impressions coming later. Check out the Brutal Legend giveaway.
I haven't started the Uncharted 2 as of yet, but I'm going in soon Jimmy! Gorilla Warbear wants to get the final Vidmaster Acheivements on the ODST so I'll probably mix some of that in. Here's the lineup for today!
Playing today ...
Uncharted 2: Among Thieves

Don't get killed by the moving booth walls...
So there's a long countdown nearing completion in the Activision booth as FnJimmy and myself are walking by. The crowd seems excited so we stop to check it out as there's only a minute and a half left. Once the timer hits zero, the lights dim and a screen that wraps around the inside of the booth starts to lower.
This is where the idiots show themselves, as they think they are going to be trapped out of the booth and not see the super awesome MW3 trailer. Look, a lot of stupid shit happens at E3, but Activision isn't about to drop a wall on your heads if you're not looking. The screens lowered to about 8 feet off the floor. And then, speaking of stupid shit, another countdown starts. Five minutes this time. As it counts down, you can see the timeline of events from previous MW games on the wrap around screen. This is all bullshit, and I don't even start recording until the timer is at a minute.
Now the trailer starts being shown, different shit is happening all around you, I tried to get as much of it as I could, but I don't have a 360 degree camera. Most of the footage had already been seen in previous trailers anyway. In the end, nothing earth shattering. MW3 = World War 3... yup.
