You heard it right. Tournament to be held on the 7th of November.
Normally I'm not a Call of Duty person. but for those of you interested, Wal-Mart is going to host a tournament for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 on November 7th, starting at 8PM. Based on my sources (both internet and personal sources withing the store), the tournament is going to be consisting of Solo SpecOps Survival rounds, in which it pretty much makes the tournament be determined by time.
Follow the link to see if your wal-mart is hosting the tournament:
So, what are you waiting for? go to your local wal-mart (if it's listed here), and sign-up. I already signed up myself at my store.

Is this cult classic game from Treasure worth your 800 points? Find out in this review.
Praised for being one of the best game on the Sega Saturn, Guardian Heroes has been brought over to the Xbox Live Marketplace on October 12, 2011. Is this game worth the 800 Microsoft points ($10)? Let's find out in this review.
This game has a total of four different modes:
- Story Mode: In this mode, you could play alone, or with a friend to form a two-man group. Depending on what choices you make throughout the story, the game's stages, story, and ending will change. Also, in the case of two people playing, they will both share the same pool of credits.
- Versus Mode: You can have up to 4 players locally, or a total of 12 people on Xbox Live can battle each other in this mode using any of the characters that have been unlocked in the Story Mode. Players can choose to fight in teams, or in a free-for-all in death matches or Point Matches.
- Training Mode: This mode is your general mode to practice your skills in the game.
- Arcade Mode: This mode serves as an endurance challenge, as you are pitted against wave after wave of endless opponents. As you level up in this mode, your stats will improve randomly, allowing you to survive longer until you are defeated.
The game can be played with it's original gameplay mechanic, or a more, refined mechanic which they called "remix". both has their own unique purposes. when it comes to the fighting, you are able to switch between three plains (or as I should say, lines). That way, if you were getting ambushed by a group of enemies, you can switch to another line to avoid being attacked. Each character also has a unique set of skills and spells that they could use. of course, using spells will cost MP. You'll be able to gain experience by attacking, using spells, making decisions in the Story mode, etc... to level up. As you clear levels in story mode, you can add attribute points to any stats based on how many levels you gained. Of course, the levels will reset after you beat the game, or if you were to get a game over.
When it comes to the sounds for the game, it remains unchanged. Composed by Hideki Matsutake and Nazo Suzuki, the music in the game is a combination of electronically composed tracks with electric guitar and saxophones, which is in my opinion, rather unique. Here's a track from the game for you to hear (and by far one of my favorite tracks in the game):
In terms of graphics, They did a really great job. the game has been reformatted from it's original scale to a 16:9 aspect ratio, thus expanding the playing field. The game offers both the classic and "remix" graphics mode, both of which runs in high definition with an updated user interface in both. With the remix graphics, they apply a hqx-like upscaling filter along with a pencil-shade effect on the sprites (which I think it's cool), true alpha blending, applies to the backgrounds bilinear filtering, and spells effects and character portraits are redrawn.
All in all, I feel that this is definitely worth the money. It's a fun game to play with a friend locally, and also a blast if you can find a lot of people online to go into a 12-person battle to the death. Other that that, I give this game a verdict of BUY IT!!!
Final Verdict: BUY IT!

Capcom has decided on Ono's replacement
With Yoshinori Ono temporary leaving his position as Street Fighter Producer due to his current health condition, Capcom was working hard to find a replacement while Ono recovers. Today, they announced that Katsuhiro Harada will be taking over as the new producer of the Street Fighter series. He'll be doing this position while keeping his current position as Tekken's Producer. Expect him go to Capcom wearing his signature karate Gi from time to time.
What will his first decision be for the Series? to make the next big Street Fighter game feel more like a Tekken game, he said in an interview. He hopes to bring out a game in the Street Fighter series that both fans and veterans will appreciate in the coming future. He also want to let everyone know that until Ono has recovered and takes his position back, He'll has his Zaibatsu men take control of the day-to-day operations of the company.
Will this move make Street Fighter better, or will Katsuhiro cause the doom of the Street Fighter franchise?

Special Package from Gouki.com. What could be inside...?
First of all, I have to say thank you, goukijones, for sending me this sweet package from PAX 2012. This package arrived about a week ago.
When I opened the package, at first, What I saw was a Magic the Gathering bag. when I open the bag to start taking the stuff out, I saw yet another bag (same one, mind you), and was able to get the swag out of that bag. First of all, I definitely like the borderlands 2 shirt. now i have 3 different types of them (Crimson Raider, Skag crossing, and this new one). I also like the Injustice headband, which goes well with the Injustice T-Shirt that I got from the E3 swag bag. The Batman Arkham City concept art book was a nice adition to my collection (liked the game, of course). One of the more interesting things I saw within the package were some Magic the Gathering items, such as a coloring book w/ crayons for it, as well as a 30-card Red Planeswalker deck (I was kinda hoping for the blue deck, but after looking at the cards in the red deck, and learned how to play it, I was satisfied with the Red Deck). I've also noticed that I got some things that i already got from the E3 swag (mainly, the Ninteno Power issue). Among the rest of the swag (Halo Patch, Skullgirls Tattoo, PAX '12 Guide, Lanyards), laid a hidden game within the package. That game was Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen for the Xbox 360. I was surprised when I saw this game. I remembered playing the demo to it and had alot of fun in the multiplayer, destroying the opposition with Iron Hide in the train yard map. I was still surprised to see that there are some people who to this day, still play the multiplayer in it. I can expect to see this as a game I would go play around from time to time, destroying everyone for the fun of it. I will also at some point start playing the single player campaign, just so i could get more characters for multiplayer.
Once again, thank you, Gouki.com, for sending me this sweet package.

In what will be the first of a new set of stories I will do, I will discus my most recent import game in my library of Xbox 360 games.
So, I recently managed to get my hands on Mushihime-sama Futari, a maniac shooting game from CAVE, a company known for making some of the more crazier shooters we might or might not know, such as Guwange (available in the XBL Marketplace in the Arcade area), Deathsmiles (Published here by Aksys games), . Could this game be worth your money? Let's find out, shall we.
First off, you may be wondering, why am I talking about a game that is only in Japan? Simple, and the first reason why I would recommend it. Truth is, This is one of the few Japanese xbox 360 games that just so happens to be Region-Free, meaning that this game could be played on any xbox 360 unit.
When you boot up the game, you are given a choice between Ver. 1.5 or Arrange, both of which offers the players a different type of challenge. there is also a DLC pack in which will enable the player to play the Black Label version, which is even more challenging.
When it comes to the actual gameplay, you will need to take into consideration that this is a vertical shump (shoot em' up). in most of the modes in the game, you pretty much use two buttons: a fire button, and a bomb button. there are two types of firing: rapid-fire firing, and auto firing. you do the rapid-fire shooting by spamming on the firing button, while with auto firing, you simply hold the button down. Do note that these two shots are different from each other. you normally have 3 bombs on you, and when you die, if you have used any bombs, it will restock to 3. the bombs can be used in many ways, especially if you think you can't dodge a series of bullets on the screen that looks impossible to dodge.
As far as the music and graphics goes, it's really amazing. the soundtrack makes it feel so satisfying as you dodge tons of bullets and wreaking havoc upon your enemies. when it comes to the graphics, the art style just simply looks awesome, from the smallest details of the levels, to the many enemies, to even the smallest of bullets that spread all over the field. the cool thing is that you can even change your wallpaper to i think around 14 different varieties.
So, in the end, is this game worth getting? If you're the type of person who likes Old-School shump's, but at the same time want a real hard, and maybe painful challenge, then I would definitely recommend it. the best chance for you to probably find this game would be on Ebay, Amazon, or any import gaming sites.
Before I go, here's some gameplay footage:
