New propaganda for Halo Reach, makes my pants wet and excited other parts of my body as well.
Get introduced to Noble Team bitch! This squad is bad ass. Can you pick out who is going to be the Master Chief at the end of Reach? I think its going to be you/me[the player] in the end. The overall cinematics for Reach look way more serious than any other Halo before. Looks like there is going to be a serious focus on a high quality script this time. Irrelevant, I'll beat the campaign in less than a day, forget it in half the time and play the multiplayer for the next 3 years.
Gouki.com has tons of exclusive Halo Reach videos from San Diego Comic-con.
Check out our official Halo Reach montage.

Honestly I probably spent more hours this year playing older games than new releases. Here's our nominees of Best Game Still Playing Not Released in 2011.
GoukiJones says: This year BatRastered got hooked on the Halo Wars. I have put over 500 hours in the game myself. Where the FUCK is Halo Wars 2?!
BatRastered says: Halo Wars has tons of staying power... mostly because there isn't a sequel and there's nothing else like it on the Xbox. The studio that made it has closed and several of the old employees created several new companies (none of which own the Halo IP of course) so we're probably screwed.
GoukiJones says: I played through Mass Effect 1 & 2 again this year. Both on HARD difficulty. Mass Effect 1 is clearly a better game. Don't get me started on the bullets being added to ME2.
BatRastered says: I played through ME1 again this year too, and yes ME1 is a better game IMO. I hope they have more of the RPG style inventory and upgrades in ME3, but I'm not holding my breath.
GoukiJones says: I also played through both Uncharted games again this year. And even though I think the shooting was better in the first game. Uncharted 2 was just so well put together from beginning to end. Although this second playthrough for me, I played on hard, ran though in less than 3 days and the final boss Jimmy didn't touch me once.
BatRastered says: I didn't replay this in 2011, but I did play UC3, and if you read my review you'd know that I didn't find it "better" than UC2.Read full story...

For 3 days only. October 15 - 16, 2010 You can buy 2 used and get 1 free from EBGames or Gamestop on ANY merchandise
Look at the picture above Jimmy. Seems simple enough. That page lists Halo Reach for $49.99. You can also buy memory cards. Wait, who uses memory cards anymore? Well controllers and stuff, that would be nice. Used? It's up to you. But there are certainly enough games from the past year if you have played, that you can scoop up now and get one for free! Check out the store.
Are you ready for swift and merciful justice?
6 days until the release of L.A Noir. Check out the launch trailer below. It isn't too special, seems just like all the other trailers they have been showing. Any of you jimmy's buying Noire or excited about it? I'm still on the ropes. Tell us what you think in the comments below, is this gonna be good game from what you've seen?
Exclusive Pictures from behind closed doors. Gouki.com got the world famous treatment from 2K Games at E3 2011 and one of the games I saw demod live right in my face was XCOM. Completely different from last year. This is my new Brink!
I certainly had the privilege to see XCOM in the 2K booth this year at E3. Last year XCOM was a FPS action game, that looked like it didn't have much to offer. This year, what I saw was a completely different game. My session was hosted by a developer or producer of the game, I can't remember his name, I nubbed it up and didn't write it down or get a card from him. He reminded of Kramer, from Seinfeld. He was great. I understand that knowing his name would have helped out a lot more with this next quote.
"The game is now a lot more like Final Fantasy Tactics" He explained in reference to the party system.
I spoke to -again I can't find his name, I apologize- He told me the game may even let you send out your party to do side missions and they will level up and bring back stuff like in Final Fantasy Tactics. My mind was blown.
During the actual playable demo, that a developer was playing behind him on the Xbox 360. They showed a lot combat and explained how the looting of the aliens worked. XCOM is squad based now and very strategic, this aspect shown, reminded me of Mass Effect. You could hack alien tech and use it against them. Some alien tech completely blew buildings apart while playing. If you don't use alien tech right away in combat, you can take it back to the lab for more long term benefits. These were all very cool ideas that I was hearing. The game now has a release date of March 6th 2012, so this is the new official GoukiJones hype game. Don't worry XCOM will not be another Brink.
These are my actual notes while I watched the live demo:
- Different demo from last year
- RPG agent elements added
- Similar to FFTactics party
- Team setup and choose the mission
- Aliens look way cooler. Humanoid
- Squad controls
- Capture enemies and use the powers now or later
- Xbox Demo
- All Aliens can be tech
- Complete 180
This is your base, where you suit your guys up and level up their gear.

A new game that is a mash up of 2 of my favorite genres ... go figure. Sidescroll & looting. This is Edge of Space for Steam Greenlight. From some Jimmy on YouTube names Handy Man. From Reverb Games.
This trailer looks pretty cool & I'm basing my entire take on watching this trailer twice. It looks cheap, but it also looks very deep in gameplay. Epic Monsters! For sure. Tons of guns ala Borderlands & super cool looking side scroll world. Fuck me, why didn't I think of this. Somebody needs to Indiegogo, Steam Greenlight or kickstart my racing game. Trying to get dat SkullGirls money! WTF was this video about? Oh yeah, 2 of my favorite styles of gameplay smashed into each other. Hmmm, Borderlands was the same concept originally.
Vote, comment & share. Thanks for reading.

Thanks for watching.
A brief discussion on the recent price drops and what it means for us, the gamers.
Price cuts, I love price cuts!
Recently Sony announced the new PS3 slim model priced at $299. A few weeks later Microsoft reduced the price of the XBox 360 elite to $299 as well. Both represent a $100 cut off their earlier prices. So who wins this round?
For Sony, a price cut was long overdue. They had third party game developers screaming for it and threatening to stop publishing PS3 games. Now the PS3 slim represents a great value, including a Blu-Ray player and internet browser with their game system which comes fully equipped with Wi-Fi built in. The new unit does not, however, include backwards compatibility with PS2 games. This is a bit of a problem due to the lack of quality exclusive titles for the system (I count about 4).
Microsoft, on the other hand, already had a $299 system, and this "price cut" really represents nothing more than a minor hardware upgrade (from a 60GB hard drive to 120GB). The 360 runs off of standard DVDs, but has Netflix streaming to back that up. It also has backwards compatibility but doesn't really need it. The elite unit still does not have Wi-Fi built in and Microsoft wants an absurd $99 (MSRP) for the add on. This is dumb considering you have to pay a subscription for XBox live and the online features of the system are what really keeps it ahead of the PS3 in my opinion.
Wouldn't it be great if Sony and Microsoft would exchange strategies on these units? Microsoft would pack in Wi-Fi and ditch backwards compatibility, whereas Sony would cut out the Wi-Fi chip and replace it with the PS2's emotion engine for full compatibility. What a wonderful world that would be, playing to both systems strengths. (The 360's online system and Sony's huge back catalog.) Oh well, it was a thought.
I'd have to say, that if you don't own either system, the PS3 represents a better value right now. The problem for me is that I already own a 360 and there's no reason to play a game available for both systems on the PS3, whereas on the 360 I get achievements. For most people, I think the choice will come down to "what system do most of your friends have?", for the simple reason of wanting to play online with them.
Let's hear your thoughts on these price cuts in the comments you bucnh of Jimmys!
Mixed Emotions and mixed feelings is ALL Crysis 2 has to offer. One moment you're absolutely loving it and then you're saying out loud that you will never play again. Ametuers man. Poor matchmaking, terrible party system and unexplainable glitches.
You would think a publisher like EA would know how to put out a proper multiplayer experience right? They act like they don't give a shit. Crytek can only be responsible for so much. Although, Crytek could have definitely built a better party and matchmaking system. It's bad enough that a lot of these features are a copy of Call of Duty games, but to have the mulitplayer separate parties, boot players at random and straight up fatal error my Xbox is a little ridiculous. Where is the testing? What I want to see is more beta tests, longer beta tests if you're just going to let the community test it once it's released anyway. Where are the patches? The game has been out for a couple of weeks now and still nothing. The screen flips out when you zoom in at the beginning of a game on the map Liberty Island. Why is this? Can anybody explain this? At the beginning of that map, all of my team mates are reminding each other to zoom in and out a couple of times so it doesn't happen while you are in combat.
Crysis 2 Screen Glitch on Liberty Island
So that's a lot of the hate there, the matchmaking. The fact that I've been in the game for 32 hours and have actually only played in matchmaking 15 hours! Wow! That means, I've been in the menus for more than twice as long as I've actually played the game. Regardless of these issues, when you actually get into games and all of your friends are on the same team, the Crysis 2 is a lot of fun.
Crysis 2 has some of the best multiplayer maps in years. No other game comes to mind, when I really think about maps. Maybe Halo 2, but that's way old Jimmy. Liberty Island -the level I mention earlier with the glitch- is probably my favorite multiplayer map in years. The Liberty Island map is very well crafted. The two bases are spread perfectly apart, the medic tent site is great to sneak through, oh and the dead bodies laid out in body bags are hilarious when you are running over them. It got real bad real quick on this map and it is the best map in the game.
Ranking up in Crysis 2 and getting new perks is no different from what you've seen in the Call of Duty series. This is a straight up copy of COD. I'm not sure why they did it like this and I'm not saying it's bad, but I want to know why a completely different company couldn't have come up with something a little more original. Crytek is supposed to be this great game making company. And please don't say this is their first multiplayer game, that's not good enough. You can even prestige in Crysis 2, c'mon.
The last thing I want to do is start all over with my guns. I'm just now getting to level 30 and starting to like how I can build my custom classes. Early on in multiplayer, when you have no guns and no perks, you're getting railed constantly and it is ZERO fun. This was always one of my major issues with COD. You really have to put time in to Crysis 2 if you want to get to the fun stuff in the multiplayer. Look at me, it only took 32 hours of it actually being on for me to start enjoying it.
I wrote everything above a few days ago. I've continued to play the Crysis 2 and my emotions continued to rise and fall. Until finally last night. I'm terrible at the death match and they may be my fault. I'm good during flag matches and enjoy that much more. It's bad enough to lose a few matches in a row or feel like your constantly getting railed in the ass and there is nothing you can do about it. But then when it kicks you out of games or Migrates Host and ends up putting your party into to separate games and you don't even realize until you team starts talking about two different maps. Last night I vowed to never put the Crysis 2 back into my Console.
Flush it! Just like when you Jimmys try to get all Greg Luoganis and swim around the levels where you can't pull your gun out. Crysis 2 is Dead in the Water.

First off this info is not posted on any American Capcom sites as of right now. Some of these items may change for American or Japanese fans.
What's up Capcom? Is this how we get news now? I'm told to only use the stuff available on the Capcom Press site and of course none of this info is. It'll probably come out today and this story won't make any sense. Amazon doesn't have it listed in America, but I'm sure they would love to post this information as soon as possible.
A sweater? Cool, I guess. I love having wearable stuff or something I can use. I still use my GTA IV lock box and duffle bag. It's actually one of the sweetest duffel bags I've ever had.
The Collector’s Edition contains the following:
- Resident Evil 6 game
- Zombie Steel Book
- Exclusive Resident Evil 6 hardback artbook showing concept art from the game
- Resident Evil 6 Avatar DLC code for 360 owners OR an RE6 Dynamic Theme for PS3 owners
- Ivy University, Tall Oaks hooded sweatshirt (one size)
- ‘The RE6 forces emblems’ – High quality enamelled zinc alloy emblems of the three main protagonists squad insignias, mounted and set in a limited numbered frame authenticated with signatures from Senior producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi, Producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi and RE6 Director Eiichiro Sasaki. A must have piece for any fan of Resident Evil!
- All of the above amazing goodies are bundled together in the lenticular ‘Needle Bomb’ collectors box (as seen in the RE6 announce trailer)
Something that could also be rare a couple years down the road -and this doesn't matter which region you get it from- is the Resident Evil 6 "Steel Book Version"
Never mind, that's not a book. The book is the case and the case is for the game. So never mind about that region free rare shit. This is pretty much just as worthless as the Collector's Edition stuff. So stay in your region no matter which version you order.
Do gamers need shit like this? I like the sweater idea, but that logo is terrible. I don't know WTF it is. The Steel Book is cool if you're a serious RE fan and can't swing the Collector's Edition. Resident Evil 6 will be lucky to get a bare minimum version in the Gouki.com offices and this is straight up a Jimmy Ass game. Vote, Comment and Share. Don't be a Jimmy!
