Shadows of the Damned isn't the only one with digital CD's...
Alice: Madness Returns is coming out next month and the pre-order deal has already shown up on the Gamestop website. Unfortunately, it is another digital downlaod CD. (Same as Shadow of the Damned, see story here http://gouki.com/Story/Details/shadows-of-the-damned-pre-order-isnt-as-crazy-as-you-may-think).
The Alice music download is 9 songs from the soundtrack featuring new music from Chris Verenna (used to be in Nine Inch Fails) It says a code will be sent to you within 2 business days to download it. But here is what confuses me a bit:
It says "9 songs from the soundtrack" , is it not the whole soundtrack? Not too sure, hopefully something from the official site will come up soon. A second game going with the digital CD, I hope this isn't becoming a "thing". Catherine and Disgea 4 are still coming out with actual CD'S and art, which is awesome. What do you think of this and what do you prefer? What are some ups an downs of digital CD's in your opinion? Leave a comment below.

GET EM WHILE YOU CAN JIMMY
In my previous story I told you about the Shick and Gel promotion for PS3. Buy a product and get DLC for the games Gran Turismo 5, Killzone 3 or inFamous 2. Well, someone fucked up MAJORLY! If you go to the redeem site, you can add in ANY amount of fake information, and they give you a redeem code. To confirm this, I just used it for Killzone 3. Hey, even if you don't have these games , it isn't too bad of an idea to get the DLC for future preferences. You basically go to the Edge/Shick site and input either these 2 codes 841058005209 / 841058005261.

On Dorkly.com they came up with a funny "6 Rejected Characters" list of MvC3. They include Morph from X-men, Tofu from Resident Evil 2, Aunt May Spiderman, Dustman from Megaman, Stanlee and Scrooge McDUCK! What makes it so hilarious are the movelists and character description, Aunt May is priceless. Take a peak at a couple of the pics below and follow the source for more :D

US commercial for SSF4 3DS released, with a very familiar voice to the fighting game community...
RedRapper is featured in the comercial spotlifght for 3D ssf4. This may not be exciting to some (specially if you are not a fan of his work) but it is pretty cool. He has done a lot of songs for the fighting game community, most known for his Evo 2010 finals rap. Congrats to him. I like it, the song fits well with the commercial, short and sweet. Check it out and leave your comments below.

Does sex sell for Playstation Move Tennis games? Probably not.
In a youtube video uploaded by http://www.youtube.com/user/FastGoalsHD , we get a sexy commercial for Top Spin 4. Featuring the "Worlds Sexiest Tennis Player" Serena Williams and "Worlds Sexiest Tennis Gamer" random chick with sunglasses. The commercial is a little ridiculous because of the outfits they are wearing, which aren't in the game.
Check it out and leave a comment on what you think. It is hot, but don't know if that would make anyone want to buy it.
Also, check out a review of the game by Cinderkin here http://gouki.com/Story/Details/top-spin-4-review
Alright dick-tits, Bulletstorm review has arrived!
BULLETSTORM! The highly controversial and gimmicky FPS of early 2011. I took my time on the game knowing it would't last me long. Here we go!
You, Grayson Hunt and your screw crash land on a once awesome resort planet. Well things went bad and you are fighting gnarly mutated enemies. The single player is about 8 hours long, like any basic campaign. They did a great job filling the game with cutscenes that highten the action. The action ofcourse is constantly thrown at you. One explosion after the next, followed by more bad guys, explosions, someone getting called a "dick" and ducking under cover while jimmys suround you. The way the story progresses is on point. As you uncover more of what the hell happened to this planet and how to get off of it, you find different types of enemies, all who tie into the story and have their own objectives and different attributes. The AI is relentless, at times they just nonstop spam fire at you, and also are smart about using cover-fire. Your leash, was meant to grade soldiers on their performance. The more creative you get, the more points you can spend on upgrades and new weapons. The game isn't all on foot either,you get your fair share of transportation. As the story progresses, you can sort of see some things coming, but this suprisingly wasn't a bad thing, everything was still fun. What this game did very well was Boss battles, good ole ridiculous huge monster boss battles and mini-bosses. Biggest complaint is that they have tons of mini bosses, but few real bosses. Without spoiling anything, this game better have a sequal, I was left on the biggest cliffhanger of my life.
GAME MECHANICS AND CONTROLS~
Bulletstorm is all about creativity. You have ridiculous weapons, a boot that kicks people into slow-mo and a leash that carries many possibilities. At first you may feel a bit pressured to getting points and doing skillshots found in the Database, but after a while it's second nature :) Even when you find yourself out of amo , your boot and leash can solve a few problems. Taking cover in this game is simply crouching, which works fine, but you may find a aprt of your body getting nipped somehow. A big problem in control was jumping and climbing. To do this you press X button when near an object. If you are in the middle of battle or trying to run this doesn't always go so smoothly. Running works well int he game and sliding is perfect for getting the hell out when your close to death. Nukem, that being said, good job.
GRAPHICS AND SOUND ~
Magnificent for both! Bulletstorm brings beautiful lush colors a long with dark and grimmey ones in perfect harmony. In the middle of intense battles sometimes you can't help but to notice your in a beautiful garden with amazing scenary....with limbs hanging on the walls. Bulletstorm may not have as much gritty detail as Killzone 3, but I feel the graphics are much better. The sound in Bulletstorm works well. The sound of gunfire is nice and blood gargling when you throat-shot someone are satisfying. The game ofcourse is constantly filled with mahem, but with all the action going on you can still clearly hear yourself speaking and your crew.
ECHO MODE ~
I don't hate it anymore, I just dislike it. Basically Echo takes tons of the epic levels / battles in Campaign and lets you replay them. It is basically Score-Attack and you get it posted on leaderboards. If you aren't into getting high scores it is a fun game-mode to play when your bored, and just want to blow stuff up. The plus side to it is that it features many maps, and you have to unlock most of them , giving you a slight competitive feeling.
This is my favorite part of Bulletstorm. This is up to 4 people co-op play, killing as a team. Each wave has a set amount of points. Your team must kill with skill together and try to maximize your points. Ofcourse as levels progress the enemies get gnarlier, and you get to spend your points on weapons and amo. The stupid part is that they only have THREE levels (6 if you buy the upcoming DLC >_>). But what keeps you playing this mode is the unlocks. You levels up ganing new titles, gun skins, and new skins for all your armor.
Basically Bulletstorm is as follows:
Story- Very likable characters and put together story line. Plenty of action , excitement, ridiculous disalouge and blood.
Game Mechanics and Controls - The boot and leash work well with this FPS. Controls work well, but action buttons for jumping is akward at times.
Graphics and Sound- Awe inspiring. In the misdt of this over the top bloody FPS we have vibrant colors and great lookin levels. Enemies death cries and trash talk are a good touch aswell.
Echo Mode- Isn't anything new, basically a score-attack for single player missions that can be posted on leaderboards.
Anarchy Mode- Co-op side of the game that places you in decent sized arenas. Leveling up allows you to customize your character ; killing in style. Big letdown with few maps.
In the end, Bulletstorm is simply amazing. This game feels like it has the ridiculous enemies, boss battles and weapons of Serious Sam, with the foul mouth of Duke Nukem but also adding its own flare. That being said it is hard NOT to enjoy the game. Unfortunately it doesn't have much replay value. Story -mode is your basic about 8 hour length and the other game modes really don't last you that long.My final verdict is a little hard to deliver because I enjoyed this game SO MUCH! But as a whole, you might aswell
RENT IT! You can get all of your Bulletstorm fun out in a week or 2 depending on how much you play, which is sad because they did an amazing job on this game. The game does heavily hint at a sequel, if there is a sequal let's hope they add LOTS more to this beast game.
A epic MMO zombie game is in the making....
Well damn, even more reasons for me to want an Xbox360. Undead Labs is creating a zombie mmo ...let that sink in, zombie survival mmo. Its called "Class3" and so far has no information if it will be on PSN.
From the blog-
"The end is here. Human civilization has been annihilated. The few, scattered survivors must band together, rebuilding civilization in a third-person action game packed with sweet guns, fast cars, hand-to-hand combat, and copious amounts of zombie gore. Players choose where to make their stand, designing and fortifying their settlements, performing daring raids for valuable stores of food and ammunition, and rescuing other playable survivors. The open world develops in real-time, shaped by player actions, with content determined by their choices and the ever-increasing zombie threat."
In their Q&A they spoke of how they are more focused on making a fine polished game before they worry about cross platform, they did admit to PS3 being a great gaming console, but said " somehow we dont think our publisher would be too excited for a ps3 tittle..." its microsoft.
Most of my xbox friends are getting super hyped for this, what do you guys think? Please post more info if you find some. So far no release date or price.

The glimmur oh hope has exploded into a Sun of love and...well it's not confirmed but I'm still EXCITED!
Daisuke Ishiwatari answered some Q&A at a recent BlazBlue tournament held by Arc Systems. He didn't say much, but what he did say pretty much seems like " Hey we're making another guilty gear ;D" Check out the quotes.
“I’m charging the energy to make it,”
“You won’t be disappointed. If we make one it will be surprisingly good with a new look you’ve never soon before. Existing characters are going to stay and we’ll be adding new characters.”
I've been waiting so long for a new guiltygear, my idea was always to keep it exactly like Accent-Core, and add the 3D characters from guiltygear2 in. Hopefully we get some solid info on where Ishiwatari is going with this, pelase post if you find anything :D GuiltyGear is and always will be my favorite fighter. Anyone else happy about a possible new GG? Or are you done with it/ don't care because you have BB ? Leave a comment below.

Indie Stone Studios has an intriguing game in the works that me be the most in-depth zombie game you have heard of.
The game is still in works, you can pre-order it / donate for $8 or more and receive free updates forever, awesome. Anyways, heres some stuff planned/ being worked on features.
You will be able to play on browser or stand-alone game itself . A full body dmg system will be implemented, example would be jumping out of a window will break your leg....you won't get far. Different zombies are affected different ways, sight, smell, sound which also ties into the games real-time feature, which changes how you will deal with certain zombies at different times of the day. Character are effected by almost anything. Hunger, insanity, a scratch that may slowly transform you.
What really caught my eye was how zombie bodies don't just dissapear. Mounds of bodies may mentally effect you or your teamates or slowly disease you, burying them can take a long time...and burning them lets people...or zombies know where you are. Multiplayer ofcourse is neccesary . Need to keep eachother safe, barracade buildins and store your items. But you never know if one of them may "turn" And ofcourse the game has crafting and stat building! Learn to fight zombies better, build shit, and treat wounds.
A short video was uploaded by http://www.youtube.com/user/lemmy103 , it's not much since the game is still developing, but it's something!
So what do you think so far? This is only some of the many things being worked on in the game, check out the blogs below for all the info and more pics. The game seems like it could keep my attention for a while, plenty of ninfty features. Leave a comment below on your thoughts.
