Originally released back in 1998 in the Arcades, JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is a hardcore fighting game based on the original manga Stardust Crusaders. It’s finally being re-released for everyone’s enjoyment on the PS3 and Xbox 360. Is it worth your money?
If you were a fighting game fan back in the late 90’s going to the Arcades you may have heard of and played JoJo’s Venture or the later renamed JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. Although if you were like me then you never got a chance to play it because either your arcade didn’t have it or you were hooked on Street Fighter III and Marvel vs Capcom games. Unfortunately the latter was the case for many of us and we missed out on JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure. Even after the game was ported to the PS1 and Dreamcast many gamers had no clue this game existed. Capcom has given us the opportunity to play this golden gem from the CPS-3 era on the PS3 and Xbox 360 with JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure HD.
The story of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure HD (JoJo HD) is based on the 3rd story arc of the original Manga commonly known as Stardust Crusaders. Following a teenager named Jotaro Kujo who develops “Bizarre” supernatural powers known as the “Stand”. Jotaro learns from his grandfather Joseph Joestar of the relation of the “Stand” with their bloodline and of the ancestral enemy of his family, a vampire by the name Dio Brando. Jotaro then embarks on a quest to save his mother and to defeat the evil Dio. JoJo’s HD explains the story of all 22 characters through the games story mode (Arcade).Read full story...

My battery isn't holding a charge anymore, so I need a new one... Don't they exist anymore?
Like all rechargeable batteries, the one that comes with your play and charge kit will eventually fail to hold a charge for very long. Mine currently lasts about 20 minutes. I thought I'd just buy a replacement... They used to sell just the battery pack for $9.99. I know, because I bought one. I had two battery packs and one charge cable. The thing is, I can't find it anywhere anymore.
It looks like the only way to replace the battery is to buy a whole new play and charge kit. This sucks... It's not just the price that pisses me off, it's that I have a perfectly good charge cable that doesn't need replacing. Happy Earth day everyone, have some extra waste!
I decided to buy a charge station (comes with a battery pack), so now I have 3 batteries (only one that works), one charge station and a play & charge cable. If I want to replace one of the other batteries I'll end up with another cable... and so on until the XBox 420 comes out I should have 18 cables by then. Thanks MS.
I've seen some third party ones, but they have contacts on the back for charging while still on the controller, doesn't seem these would work with my charging station.
Coming in January!
from the description:
What obstacles will our heroes face within the 3 story arcs? Will Android 21 find out how tasty the FighterZ will be? All this and more will be revealed when DRAGON BALL FighterZ launches January 26th, 2018!
So there it is, the release date is January 26! Pre-order now!
Making fighters a bit more "realistic".
Sony's NGP has some badassnice ideas for a fighting game. Using the built-in camera you can take a picture of your face and map it to the character. Another cool trick with the camera is taking a pic of the place where you want to battle. The game also have 12 different fighting styles, a bunch of costumes and around 200 weapon-types.
Ballet style FOR THE WIN! The game apparently has a Tekken feel (not nearly as deep) and will be launched with the NGP. How does this sound to you jimmy's? Looks nifty to mess around with. Leave your thoughts in a comment.

New characters, iPhone Touch Street Fighter 4 and the National Tournament.
Hello everyone! Today, I have three huge announcements for you all - new characters, iPhone/iPod Touch Street Fighter 4, and details about the National Tournament!
I think many of you may already know about this from this week's Weekly Famitsu, but we have characters from the Street Fighter 3 series joining the fight!
Her rival opponent is Sakura!
Her rival opponent is Fei Long!
(Azrael's Note: The text in the picture says "What an incredibly rude thing to say.")
His rival is Balrog!
Maaaan, it took some courage to get these characters in the game. Mostly because they come from a game system that featured parries. They are very popular with everyone, and our development staff also wanted to give them a spin in the world of Street Fighter 4! I don't have to tell you though that adjusting them... yeah, vomiting blood levels.
So, that kunai I've been teasing you with all along... of course that was Ibuki's!
This is her Ultra II, where she showers you in a rain of kunai.
And for all of you who used Dudley in Street Fighter 3, I gotta tell you - you can throw the rose in Super Street Fighter 4 as well!
The move's name is "Rose of Victory". While it doesn't do any damage, when it hits it causes the opponent to pause briefly, giving you a change to get in there and attack.
And last we have a little bit about Makoto. While this has nothing to do with her moves... for her voice recording and her alternate costume, Makoto was the hardest out of all the characters, by far.
Especially her voice recording. From Third Strike, Makoto has used a very country dialect. So this time around, we got a professional in country dialect to help us, and it took us an unprecedented number of takes, but we got it done. Also, her voice actor is the same from Third Strike, Ms. Makoto Tsumura! She did great work for us without complaining even once.
These guy's Ultra I, Ultra II, and sample voices are all on the official site under Characters, so go check em out and have fun training with them in your head!
Well then, let's get to today's second news point. I think there are a lot of people who already know about this as well! Our development staff has secretly worked on a version of Street Fighter 4 for the iPhone/iPod Touch, and we're finally pulling the curtains back on it!
Unfortunately, there will be no arcade stick for this, but with Capcom's virtual pad, once you get used to it you'll be pulling off commands in no time!
And of course, you'll be able to enjoy random battles! With Bluetooth, you can take on those stronger than you at any time!
For those who know SFII but are unfamiliar with Street Fighter 4, we have an original mode The Dojo to help you become stronger!
This is the Trial Menu for the iPhone/iPod Touch version. Use this dojo to perfect your skills!
Sale date is planned for March. While you won't be able to use all characters from Street Fighter 4, we will have more detailed info about the available characters released in the coming days, so stay tuned for that!
So everyone, put Street Fighter 4 on your iPhone/iPod Touch and enjoy heated battles around town, at work, or at school!
And for today's last announcement, with the Qualifiers entering into the final half, I'd like to announce details about the Street Fighter 4 National Tournament!
First up is the brackets. This time, we have 9 regional qualifiers, 2 spots for the dream team, and 2 spots for last-chance qualifiers. That leaves one mystery spot, for a total of 14 finalists to challenge for the title of strongest in Japan!
Yep, 2 last-chance spots. This won't be a lottery, we'll have a tournament for it. So if you want to participate, get a team together and wait for further details. Right now we are still deciding on the meeting time and what not!
And now, about the next stage. At last year's tournament, we had as special guests Ryu's voice actor Hiroki Takahashi, Ken's voice actor Yuji Kishi, and Sakura's voice actor Misato Fukuen. This time around, our special guests will be Guile's voice actor Hiroki Yasumoto, Viper's voice actor Mie Sonozaki, and Juri's voice actor Eri Kitamura!
And we'll also have Lil Ono up there as well... just what kind of crazy stories will they share?! Its a special stage that's sure to be a lot of fun. To enjoy it together with us, please come to the tournament!
Yep, come out to the tournament! And for those of you who want to see high-level fighting with your own eyes, we have extra-special seats prepared just for you! This is a special seat that gives you a great view of both the fighting, as well as the special stage. And there's only 100 of them.
Those 100 seats aren't first-come, first-serve. If they were... we'd have some real fights on our hands! So! We are taking applicants for them on our Official Site's National Tournament Page! After a strict lottery, 100 lucky fans will be chosen!
The application period is from now until March 3rd (Wednesday). Read the Rules of Entry, get pumped up and please enter! We're waiting for your entry!
Even if you don't get the special seats, of course we have standing room available for you to view the action.
We also have other important information about the National Tournament Event on the information page, so be sure to read it at least once.
Well, that's about it for today's news announcements, right?
... Whoops, got one more! The Collectors Package is currently under development!
This is the character soundtrack collection plus all-promotional video collection! The Chun-Li and Juri label is pretty nice, isn't it?
But making this label actually took quite a bit of work. Please take a look at these three images.
You may not understand well, but these three images are slightly different. Take a look at the one on the far right. Its not that its a bad picture or bad lighting. If we just put the illustration of Juri on top of the label, this is what happens. But its not very pretty, is it?
So then, we put white paper under the illustration, and the labels in the center and the left are the result. For the one in the middle, the white is at 50%. That means we put the illustration on top of semi-transparent white paper. The one on the left is 100% white - we put the illustration on top of the fully white paper.
You can see the illustration most clearly on the 100% white, but it looks too much like a toy. You won't really appreciate the hatching touch of the picture. So that's why we'll be manufacturing it on the 50% white version!
You may not care about such small details, but everyone here has put our heads together to come up with something we can, in good confidence, say is the best, even for these little things. So we hope you have high expectations for us!
Well then, that's all for today's news. I'm worried it might have been a little too much, but right now we're in the middle of getting the most pumped up for Super Street Fighter 4 we can get!
Thanks for sticking with me until you were almost out of breath! See you again next week!
A list of what's to come this week on Xbox Live.
Bare in mind, there's not much being put out this week. Now that I said that, let's look at this week's releases:Read full story...

Producer and graphic designer of famous games like SF4 series, Onimusha and many MegaMans, Keiji Inafune has been at work since his Capcom leave.
The two companies are called Intercept and Comcept. They are both very small sites with some basic info, but it's heading in th right direction. Also both companies have a capital of 10 million Yen.
Intercept is his gaming company. The front page of the site states Intercept. Inc will challenge the game market, and that they make their games by "3 keywords" http://inter-cept.co.jp/
- Originality- Cannot be imitated
- Gravity- Power to pull people in
- Beyond the Age- Goes past our era of gaming
Comcept seems to be way more broad and covers some stuff that Intercept does. http://comcept.co.jp/company.html
Under the Company Tab this is what is listed as "Business"
- Consumer game planning, development and sales
- Online game planning, sales, management and distribution
- Mobile content planning, development, management and distribution
- Other entertainment content planning, development, management and distribution
- Character goods planning, development production, sales and rights management
- Books, music and video planning, production, sales and rights management
- Event planning and consulting
Wow, thats alot. Seems as if Intercept will be designing the games where Comcept does everything else around that with the marketing and managing. Any big Inafune fans here? Beig his own boss, it's going to be very interesting to see what his company creates. Especially with the 3 Goals of Intercept, hope he stays close to that. Leave a comment on what you guys think of this, don't be a jimmy.

How do you make money gathering? Here's a few tips on leveling optimally & making dat GIL at the same time.
Leves are a great way to gain some good XP on your way to your next level, but what if you're out of leves or you just want to save them for crafting? Get your daily Grand Company gathering missions done. Only turn in HQ items for a maximum bonus. How to make GIL with this method. Gather an extra group of 10 or 20 HQ items. Put them on the MB (in groups of 10 only) to sell it to the lazy gatherers that just want to turn it in real quick.
Take left over NQ items & put them on the MB for as cheap as possible. Most items sell back to vendors for only 1 GIL, so anything more than a GIL is worth it. Just get rid of that inventory. I for 1, don't have any room to hang on to NQ nubfarm items.
Final tip here is to always check the board to see what is selling high that day you plan to level. Check what area you're going to & what items are available. Make sure you get 99 of those during your gathering. With decent gear you should pull 30-40 HQ items you can sell too. Deals Jimmy!
Bottom line here, always check your Grand Company daily quests. Know what items are peaking on the Market Board & grab some of those. It's okay to get back a few levels too because you can get extra HQs & extra HQs mean extra GIL!
Don't be a Jimmy! Thanks for watching/reading.
So You Thing You Can Gather airs every Thursday on Gouki.tv. You can find me on Malboro rolling with [FC] TAW.
