Innovation that really changes the experience of games is something that a lot of developers can't get right. Here's a list of Gouki.com's most innovative things in video games from 2010.
Super Street Fighter IV - Replay channel
Watch random fights online while you cook breakfast. Sometimes even fights you've been in pop up or fights from people on you friends list. The SSF4 was a great way to learn street fighter as well.
Need for Speed Hot Pursuit - The Autolog
Nothing else released this year made me want to play a game more than the Autolog. The competition of getting the fastest time on racing, or playing a cop intrigued me to no end. I'd stay up all night trying to figure out how this Jimmy (ThaBrad) got 10 seconds on some random interceptor challenge.
Fable III - Friend stats and updates
I have 0 STD's, Creasemonkey has 6. Erik Estrada has 27 kids. Man of Ponage has 22,000,000 gold. These stats would pop up constantly while you were playing. They were also in real time.
Smackdown VS Raw 2011 - Create a superstar
Where this feature has it woes, the outcome of what you can create is still amazing.
Halo Reach - menu
People do not realize how brilliant the Halo Reach menu is, that you can go through the entire menu. Check friends online, see friends armor sets, change your armor, buy armor, change your buttons, view the stats from the game, save a copy of the game. It's ridiculous. Every game should be like this.
Winners will be announced December 29th. Did we leave anything out? What's your favorite? Leave a comment below! AND don't forget to vote for your favorites in our Video Game Catalog.Read full story...

Square Enix is still in business, regardless of the bankruptcy talk and a 13 billion dollar over estimate on their earnings. Final Fantasy Versus XIII and XIII-2 coming soon. Official announcements and random YouTube videos, but no official release dates.
Gameplay videos and a press conference semi-confirm that Square Enix is still hard at work on trying to maintain the honor of the Final Fantasy franchise. The story originated from the Sony Blog. The official Square Enix American website has no official press release. The American FF13-2 site says "Coming Next Winter." Then there is the preview on YouTube, posted by some random Jimmy who just opened an account TODAY. This is all coming after a press event early this morning in Japan with Square Enix.
Until there is an OFFICIAL RELEASE DATE, I don't think there's anything to be excited about. Perhaps Square Enix should focus on fixing their broken games and getting the games currently on the slate, released. Like Deus EX Human Revolution, does anyone think this game is going to make it's next release date? My money is on the NO. Mindjack just came out today, you still don't even know what this is, do you? Final Fantasy XIV on the PS3? lol.
Final Fantasy XIII-2
Roman numerals get numbered sequels. I love the Japanese. There is no information about the Final Fantasy XIII-2. Unless you count this as news "FINAL FANTASY XIII-2, is coming next winter. We have a new story in store that stems from the previous title, a battle system that is evolved from “XIII”" Coming next winter? That's great, let me go add that to the catalog right now. New battle system and story? That's what you[Square Enix] announced last January, when they first started to talk about FF13-2. Final Fantasy XIII-2 will not be playable at E3, I'll be surprised if anything other than a trailer is shown. Speaking of video, below is the video posted on YouTube by the random Jimmy. It's not gonna be up there forever.

Do not pay full price for video games. These are the biggest rip offs for gamers this year.
You realize that some of these games require 2 of the same ball controller, like the boxing. I know, so what, right? Add it up. Move basic kit that comes with a game, the controller and the eye toy. $100. The Navigation controller if you want to play whatever games need this. $30. Then you need a second Move controller. $50. And then finally if you want to play that stupid boxing game, you need the game. $50. Total = Broke ass.
Bioshock 2 DLC
This is when every gamer knew we were totally being lied to by our publishers.
Kinect $50 extension cord
Wow really Microsoft?! That's just wrong. I hate cables. They are a Rip-off.
Super Street Fighter IV costumes
I like the costumes. Releasing a bunch of packs slowly and then a final pack at the end with all of them in it for a cheaper price is just wrong. Let me pay that price up front and as they release just let me DL them. Jimmy ass!
Online play codes
This bullshit is alienated the other half of the gaming community. The part of the community that buys games used or gets them from friends long after the game comes out. The part of the community that is excited to play with me, a game that I'm still playing because I enjoy it so much. Online play codes are the biggest bullshit.
Xbox Live price increase
Xbox Live annual cost was raised from $50 to $60. Unbelievable. I never thought we would see an increase. Most titles run on dedicated servers. And don't get me started on Online play codes fucking gamers in the ass.
Microsoft says it's for Kinect and that we'll have access to ESPN 3. I don't have a kinect and I don't have ANY need to watch ESPN 3. There should be an option for gamers who strictly just want to play online. ie Halo, COD, NFSHP. I don't need access to anything else on Xbox Live except my friends.Read full story...

The first ever SFW PG-13 Vlog! Rick "Papabear" Velazquez stops by again for the new vlog with a couple more surprises. This is on of my favorite vlogs of all time Jimmy!
Please share this with your friends on Facebook and Twitter with the share button on top right of this page. Don't be a Jimmy! Number 1 in the World Gouki.com!!!
And now I present to you ... Vlog #11
Oh wow! The new Windows Phone is here. I hate cell phones. Bing.com hating on Gouki.com caught on tape!
So some of you may not know this, but I hate cell phones. Yes, yes, I'm glad to have mine and I use it a lot. Sometimes though, I could just be sitting on the couch and constantly checking it every two seconds. Then I catch myself doing this and I get very angry. I feel way to attached to it. Then when your girlfriend is constantly texting you and geting angrier and angrier because you aren't responding. You don't know, you left the phone in another room so you would be sucked into it's unholy control over your mind.
Anyway, I think I'm way off topic here. I could do with out cell phones that's for sure. But everything around me would fall apart. Check out me trying to get on Gouki.com with the new Windows Phone at CES 2011.

Cliffy B just couldn't resist putting his face in one of those cool Bulletstorm videos. Demo date confirmed through Twitter. And finally the word on multiplayer and it's not what you would expect.
Bulletstorm demo date confirmed via @danacowley on twitter yesterday. January 25, 2011. We're gonna get the Echoes mode which is, campaign levels that you play solo and compete for high scores against your friends. I'm a little disappointed if I won't be able to experience some of the co-op. Either way though, I will be playing the demo and playing the shit out of it hopefully. Bulletstorm looks like a TON of fun.
In a new Bulletstorm video posted, not included in the Bulletstorm preview I just wrote two days ago.
Bulletstorm Weapons and Anarchy mode - Cliffy B jumps in to take up Tanya Jessen screen time. Sad face. So Cliffy B is all up this video talking about the weapons. I'm exciting about the weapons. I'd be more excited if Tanya Jessen was telling me about them more. Remember that feeling you got throwing the Perfect Dark suitcase gun up against the wall as a turret? Bulletstorm has me interesting in seeing what I can do with their weapons. They all have some very cool concepts and secondary functionalities. The main premise of the game is to just fuck up as much shit as possible at a time and see who can score the most points.
So now we know, there is nothing traditional about the Bulletstorm multiplayer. There's PvP, but it's only for points. I don't think you will even be playing at the same time. Something similar to racing against your friends times on NFSHP. This is great, for that you can compete with your friends and you don't have to be online at the same time. I just don't think it will have much replay value. The hardcore Gears Jimmys are gonna be screaming that there isn't traditional multiplayer, but that is just not the style of Bulletstorm. Wait for Gears of War 3 ya Jimmy.
And finally I leave you with yet another video about Bulletstorm. Epic has been blowing it out with the promotions and they are all great. Make sure you check out and subscribe to the Epic Games YouTube Channel.

There's only one way to GUARANTEE your access into the Gears of War 3 Beta at this point. A press release states that the beta is filling up and all requests for codes may not be filled. Leave a comment for a chance to win one of our codes. (if we get any)
Oh the goodness you are missing right now Jimmy. Don't worry, it's not like there are a million people playing Gears 3 right now. @therealcliffyb has been giving them away all day, over the Twitter and even in person. A few other employees from Epic have been passing them out, websites and I'm sure if you know somebody at a GameStop, you might even have one too.
We've been trying to get some for a few days, but we have been assured that the codes are very limited. Here's a tidbit from the email blast some press just received.
As you can imagine, we’ve received an overwhelming number of requests for beta tokens recently. Due to limited supply, unfortunately we can’t provide tokens to everyone at this time, but we’ve noted your request and will follow up closer to the beta launch on April 25 if we’re able to accommodate.
So we're keeping our fingers crossed for right now in hopes that we get some codes to share with you. Stick with Gouki.com and if you want a code, leave a comment, we'll do the best we can. I'm sure the more comments we get the better the chance we get at getting any codes at all.
With all that said and you don't believe in luck, you can buy your way in, by Pre-Ordering ANY version of Gears of War 3 from GameStop.com.
Get ready to jump back in the action with Delta Squad beginning this April by pre-ordering “Gears of
War 3” online at www.gamestop.com/gearsofwar3 or from any conveniently located GameStop store.* Fans can pre-order one of the three distinct “Gears of War 3” editions -- Standard ($59.99 USD), Limited ($79.99) and Epic ($149.99) -- and gain access to three weeks of multiplayer beta action on Xbox LIVE, beginning April 25.**
You can bet your sweet ass Gears of War 3 is going to be a lot of fun.
I have totally raiped this game at this point. I recently beat it on hard and it was an excellent challenge.
I have totally raiped this game at this point. I recently beat it on hard and it was an excellent challenge. Some of the combat scenarios had me locked up for hours! On the same fight Jimmy! It was so easy running through it a second time.
Running through the game the first time was a blast. What an excellent job with gameplay and story telling. This certainly is one of the best Batman games I've ever played. Don't forget Lego Batman, good in it's own Lego way.
There's so many styles of gameplay and challenges in the Batman Arkham Asylum I assure you, you will never be bored with it. I played through it twice in less that a week. Ok so maybe now you're thinking it's short. Don't worry about the length. The challenges provide great replay value and there's already FREE DLC on the way. Play this fuckin' game Jimmy! It's a can't miss and is one of the BEST games this year. Don't be a Jimmy!
This is a true story ...
I really thought the batarang was going to be a little bit more serious.
The game is well worth it though. Buy the regular version.
Save that money Jimmy! Best coupons, shipping rates and free dlc.
Free Halo Reach forge maps added to matchmaking
I did not believe my eyes when I saw to free user created maps on the playlist that first night. Unfortunately they will all be the same color as that Forge World. Who cares, it's free and actually enjoy one of those maps.
Kmart gaming coupons
As long as you were buying your games from Kmart every week you were only paying about $42 for each game. With almost every new release purchase you got a $20 coupon on a future game. Deals Jimmy.
Amazon $0.99 release date delivery
If don't like to leave the house like we do then this is the best deal for you. Imagine the gas you would save not driving to the closet ghetto errrrrr Kmart to buy your games every week. Let the Jimmy ass UPS man bring it to your door. Amazon also rivaled Kmart with $20 coupons with every new release you buy.
Summer of Arcade rebates
Bought all 5 you got 1200 points back.
Bought 3 of them you got 400 points back.
In the house we had 4 of the five. We did not have Hydro Thunder, because we are not nubfarm. Any type of rebate in this situation is good. I wish I hadn't bought MNC or the Castlevania, would have saved me 2400 points!Read full story...
I have played all of these games. Uhhhhh here's the list ...
I played about half way through this game.
I did play this. Gran Turismo VS Need for Speed Hot Pursuit.
Heavy Rain isn't even in the catalog. I did play this game. I do not understand what people were so excited about. The first scene: The chick comes home with the groceries and asks me to help, I just sat on the couch and ignored her for 30 mins and watched cartoons.Read full story...

Check out Gouki.com booth babe of the year 2009 in a new video from a game I'm just learning about. Combat Arms.
I've never heard of Nexon and I've heard only a few things about Combat Arms. At first I thought we were talking about Small Arms, that XBLA game from a few years ago. Needless to say, I was confused. Well thanks to Joanne Paguio, Gouki.com booth babe of the year 2009. I now know who Nexon is and that Combat Arms is a PC FPS. I only know because Joanne is in this video, so check her out at 4:20 in the women's bathroom. lol.
Nexon - BlockParty Blabber Box -- Episode 1
You can learn more about Nexon and what Combat Arms is on their official website.
