Leave your comments and in the bottom, and don't be a Jimmy.
Try not to laugh. I played the first FF13 all the way to disc 3 and I got to the "open world" part. Then I put it on the shelf and eventually mailed it to Blazemanx.
I couldn't help, but laugh a little bit when this trailer ended. I haven an appointment to see this game at E3 2011. Hopefuly I don't get banned from the Square Enix booth. Again, I'll try any Final Fantasy once.

Exclusive: I spent about an hour hanging out with the HalfBrick crew at E3. I ate a lot of their sandwiches and played 3 of their newest games. Fruit Ninja PC, Kinect Fruit Ninja and Machine Gun Jetpack. E3 2011.
This is what Fruit Ninja for PC looks like. (Gouki logo not included.)
This is going to be huge on Facebook. The leader board resets weekly so Jimmys is gonna be passing out some 2:00 in the mornings on a Sunday trying to catch Duncan Curtis. That guy in first place, I played him. Cheatin'! God mode.
The game is Fruit Ninja, fruit flies up into the air and you cut it with your mouse. It's simple, it's fun, it should addict with no problem.Read full story...

Team Gouki hit up the Bastion at E3. Check out my hands on time with the co-founder of Super Giant Games, Davin Simon. He destroys the demo right on front of me and I got some of on video. Plus FnJimmy's official take.
I just learned of Bastion while at E3. I love hunting, gathering, leveling up type games. FnJimmy says "It's like Final Fantasy Tactics." I think he means, because of the squares. Bastion is a Summer of Arcade XBLA Exclusive. I stopped by the booth at a different time from FnJimmy and BatRastered. I met Gavin Simon, co-founder of Super Giant Games.
The first question I asked was if his gear changed when he got new armor and leveled up. He does not and Gavin was surprised by that question he told me. Nobody else had asked that. Okay, so maybe it's just me then, but I like seeing the gear change. Irrelevant.
Bastion looks sweet and it looks like it's going to be a hell of a value. Check out this video below, it starts off with a little FnJimmy gameplay to warm you up. Then in the third clip 0:47, Gavin shows me how to PWN with Bastion. Badass Nice.

Team Gouki visited with Reverge Labs/Autumn Games at E3 2011 to see Skullgirls. An independent 2D fighter with great ambition. Now picked up by Konami - A new challenger has entered! Check out our exlcusive coverage.
Skullgirls was on my schedule as the last thing on the final day of E3. I knew I had one of the best things saved for last and I couldn't wait to actually see this game in person. But a whole 28 hour period before I stopped by this little corner in the Konami booth, FnJimmy and BatRastered played Skullgirls. Here's FnJimmy's official take, moments after playing Skullgirls for the very first time ever.
FnJimmy's Official Take from E3 2011
Then I finally rolled up the following day a little early for my last appointment. Also spending all that time before hand in the Square booth, depleted my flask and totally had me in the mood for a fighting game. I was greeted by Alex and he was cool. He knew about the game enough and was constantly taking notes. I was then introduced to Ian Cox a designer at Reverge Labs. He interrupted two Jimmys that were playing on 1 of the 2 Skullgirls set ups in the Konami booth, kicked them off. Then Ian and I stepped up to play. You notice badass nice custom fight sticks, completely decked out with the Skullgirls. They were from Arcade in a box. Check out this picture I snapped while they we're packing up.
So we began to play. We did 3V3. First cool thing about Skullgirls is you can do 3V3 2V2 1V1 OR 1V2 1V3 2V3 and the scales adjust your health and damage, depending on how many are on your team. The game looks amazing, I'm not going to even talk about that. Check out this Off Screen footage I captured while FnJimmy and BatRastered played again.

Skullgirls has a classic Street Fighter 6 button control setup and fighting style. Add in the MvC style swapping plus super chains and you got some craziness on your hands. Only 3 characters were playable at the show. I played with Cerebella most of the time, she's a grappler, like Zangief. Like how FnJimmy likes his women. Another cool innovation in Skullgirls is the non jumping 360. Ian explained, if you hit bottom 5 points of the fight stick while circling for a 360 motion, the character will lock to the ground and not jump. I thought that was very smart. There's tech throws and something like a alpha counter/snap back, but more on that later. Skullgirls has a ton of depth to it.
Ian would show me chain combos and it reminded me a lot of Street Fighter 3 style button chains. Nothing crazy and out of control fast like MvC3. The pace of the game looked well balanced, but I didn't really get to see any of the mixed size team matches. That's also an interesting idea.
All in all this is something to get hype for. It's coming to XBLA and PSN, so it's not going to be more than $20 hopefully around $15. At $15 I strongly encourage fighting game fans to give this game a try. This is gonna be in competition at EVO 2012. Don't be a Jimmy!
Now this trailer starts off saying "Actual Gameplay footage" Bethesda knows to show off the goods. The only problem is ...
The only problem is there doesn't look like there is anything special about this game except the graphics. And I don't give a fuck about graphics. Standard guns, you got a boomerang rail tool for your left hand and that's it. The city and the environments look cool and that will probably be enough for me to play Rage. Otherwise it just looks like another FPS still.
RAGE - The Well Official Gameplay Trailer
A very weird cartoon will probably mean a very weird game.
The game Ugly Americans: Apocalysegeddon is based on a TV show on Comedy Central. If you never watched it I can explain real quick. The main character is a social worker for monsters. He helps them adapt and find a place in the world. They go though some really weird shit. His roomate and friend is a sex obsesed zombie. His co-worker is a drunk wizard. His girlfriend is a sucubus. And his boss is a demon trying to bring the world to it's end. There is also a human cop who is always trying to arrest or kill his monster clients. So yeah it's pretty strange. I'm not sure how they are planning to turn it into a game though. On gamasutra they say it will be a four player side scrolling shooter that you can download for $10. There are supposed to be more details given at E3.

You got just a couple seconds of it in the video they showed at the Sony press conference, but that was enough to make me want to know more.
Yet another game where your character starts with amnesia. She goes by the name Kat and you'll get plenty of comic book styled cut scenes that you flip through on the touch screen. And she is into some hand to hand combat, giving you combos and special moves you can use to fight through this world in. You also get to defy gravity and control where you land by tilting the Vita.
As a new IP with a heavy anime influence the game has my attention. I'm really looking forward to learning more about this game as the details surface. And if I find a way to get myself a Vita this game has a great chance at joining my collection.
And here is a short video of the game.
My take on Nintendo's Press Conference. With pictures! ;)
Press conference starts off with link's history through out time, done by full orchestral.
Shigiro Miyamoto gets on stage and gets a translator. eShop channel for the 3DS will have the Gameboy Color; The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awaking DX
and not the DX version , shame. The DS will also including a Legend of Zelda Four Sword for free! There's also a Zelda concert that'll be preforming in each region! Free sound track from Club Nintendo if you register your Zelda 3DS. Zelda will also receive a gold controller for Skyward Sword. Bundle? Then Miyamoto-san gives thanks for all these years of gaming!
Satouro Iwata comes and talks about Wii2. The crowd gets blue balls! It's schedule for coming next year, 2012. Titles shown are;
Mario Kart 3D, Star Fox 3D, New Super Mario Bros, Kid Icarus, Luigi's Mansion 2, and some more.
Reggie comes on stage. Shows off Mario Kart 3DS. You can now drive underwater and is schedule to be released this holiday season.
Star Fox 3DS. Uses till controls(as shown above) and 3D. Has a great feature of real face time and will be available this September and well as Mario before this year.
Kid Icarus shows of multiplayer and a Kid Icarus battle card game!
Lugi's is back in Luigi's Mansion 2! Looks funny and fun! Several new mansions!
Then some trailers are show with games to come, like: Ace combat 3D, Tetris 3D, Tekken 3D, MGS Snake Eater 3D. The eShop will also have demo's via in gamestore, and trailers, later this year. Pokemon 3D is not what we though. It's pokemon and it has spot pass so you can collect them all.
The he talks about the new name system, called WiiU, which is about you and me! The controller was only shown but it has a 6.2 screen on the controller, microphone, gyros, accelerometers, speakers, rumble, inward and outward facing cameras, and all Wii accessories work with it. Not a portable machine but an extension of the system. Has crazy possibilities. Smash Brothers was annoucced for both 3DS and WiiU!!
Official game, Lego City Story is an open ended city for both WiiU and 3DS.
EA parnership for WiiU. Reggie showing video of developers praising the Wii U, like; Peter Moore, Yves Guillemot, Danny Bilson, Ken Levine, and more.
Darksiders 2 will be at launch! Batman Arkham City! Assassin's Creed! Ghost Recon! Aliens: Colonial Marines was just shown running on Wii U at the Nintendo E3 press conference! Nintendo has Ninja Gaiden 3!
It's AMAZING! Think about it. The controller is the CONNECTION to the WiiU. The system is still separate! But this bring more questions than answers. How much will the controller be and the System be?
It's coming holiday 2012, so we still have much more to see! Let us know, down below!
Don't be a Jimmy! Lol!

I didn't get a chance to play the first Darkness, but I'm thinking of going back and trying it out. Was it as cool as this?
The Darkness II - E3 trailer
Are comic book to game transitions the same as movie to game adaptations? You tell me Jimmy.
we finally get a taste of what the next installment of the soul calibur franchise will look like.
In terms of looks it doesn't look that much different from SC4 but with a 2012 release date im sure it will be more polished and crisp. It also seems as though the characters are using some sort of special moves maybe channeling their inner street fighter?
so what do you guys think are you excited to about the 5th installment of the king of weapon based fighters?
let us know what you think and don't be a jimmy.
