This is a list of every video game Gouki.com purchased in 2010. Have a look of exactly how much we spent on gaming.
We recently did the taxes and thought it would be a good idea to share with you all of our video game receipts from last year. Below you will find the date of purchase, where we purchased the game and the price we paid. Followed by a monthly total and a grand total at the end of the page. How much did we spend on video games last year?
Almost every game we purchased from Kmart was less that $45. That's a great average and we saved a ton at Kmart last year. You could save a lot of money at Best Buy if you are part of their Reward Zone Gamers Club. We got Gran Turismo there for less than $15. Not that it was worth $10. We also prefer Amazon, with features like $0.99 Release Day Delivery and New Releases being less than retail, you can't go wrong with those savings.

Is Splash Damage going to change everything with Brink and their new engine called "SMART" ???
I first heard of Brink about a year ago. I saw the teaser for it and thought the concept of the island and the to factions feuding sounded cool. The teaser said it was coming out in Spring 2010. LOL. It's cool, good games take time. I always say delay it until it's perfect. Unless you're Gran Turismo 5, which I don't even know what the fuck they are doing anymore. Now there are karts ... wait getting off target.
Brink has had me juiced ever since I saw this video late last year. I told BatRastered that this is "the video that has me totally into this game." At this point last year we were Borderlands fiends. BatRastered way more than me. It was kind of hard for me to talk about a game that was so similar to Borderlands at first glance. I didn't think that, at all. When I saw the SMART engine working, I thought that we could do some really cool stuff with that. Check it out, Paul Wedgwood the Game Director playing in this video.
Now the first time a lot of people saw Brink was the CG trailer they released. I knew what was behind that trailer and if they were trying to say that is what it's going to be like when it comes out. Cool. Of course people were like "Yeah right, there's no way it'll be anything like that." Well I hope after watching the first video you understand why I think it will play like that. It's Hardcore Parkour FPS = HPFPS. WOW!
Finally it was time for E3 and I knew Brink was going to be there. It was one my E3 most wanted list top 10. Getting to play would really set my opinion straight. When E3 came around and I was on the floor talking with Ed Stern and actually playing Brink. I forgot about the Parkour stuff. I didn't get to see it all in the E3 Demo. I realzed this when I came home later that week. I didn't even see the jumping and sliding stuff. I thought. That was the gameplay element I was most interested about. Bongoboy had me going so fast through the demo; changin' classes, accepting missions, shooting Jimmys. It was cool though.
These next 3 videos are just straight forward gameplay and they are incredible. Warning God mode activated. First video = Zzzzz. The second video shows off some more slick jumping in combat and what some of the specific chracters classes do. The third video shows planting a bomb and defending an area the developer was trying to breach. To create a shortcut for his teammates. Awesome stuff there. Looks very exciting.
By now you understand where I'm going with the combat and "Moving and shooting" concept that, Technical Game Designer, Aubrey Hesselgren speaks of in this next video. Brink is do out in January, right before my birthday. I hope it's going to be a good one. With videos like these coming out as we get closer, I am constantly walking around with a stiffy thinking about the SMART engine! C'mon! Sticky baum to ya garill!

Just surfing through video game channels on youtube and I found this video from SouthPeak Interactive. Two Worlds II Sordahon's Journey - #4.
I found this video on the SouthPeak Games youtube channel where you can also see the rest of the series. I have not played either of the Two Worlds games, but I'm familiar with them and the concept. This video has a couple of quick cuts that are funny and is willing to make fun of itself. At 2:15 "Sordahon" just starts swinging his "club" wildly. Hilarious. SouthPeak Games also referred to as SouthPeak Interactive publishes Two Worlds II.

Mad Catz has released parts to change your FightStick so it is compatible for Mortal Kombat. The Top Panel includes a new button layout and new artwork. A separate bundle includes new buttons. Opening your FightStick will void your warranty.
MadCatz just announced the Combat FightStick Top Panel. Obviously there are some licensing issues, because MadCatz is really trying to tell you this panel is for use with Mortal Kombat, without actually saying Mortal Kombat. That's cool right? Check out the new lay out:Read full story...

This is why I don't want to leave the house to buy video games. Best Buy is stingy with the pre-order bullshit now, a video game specialty store doesn't even know what Tactics Orge is and GameStop? Really? Really? lol.
I woke up early this morning hoping to beat whatever crowd might be at the Best Buy trying to get MvC3. I already pre-ordered one from Amazon for the Contest winner. You can only get one coupon per order, so my plan was to go to Best Buy and use some coupons I had and just buy the Special Edition straight up.
Well big shocker, Best Buy didn't have any Marvel Vs Capcom 3 Special Editions, in fact they barely had any regular versions. When I asked an employee if they have any SE's in the back she told me they were only for pre-order. Another costumer was standing there while another employee was calling Best Buy's all over town to see if they had any extra. I was intrigued, I said: "Hey if the Best Buy down the street has one, I'll go over there and get it."
This other guy wanted two for some reason, he also said he wanted it for Frank West. What a Jimmy. While standing there and listening to this guy call the other Best Buy's, at least 10 people came into the video game section asking for the Special Edition.
One guy even questioned: "How can you be sold out, you opened 10 minutes ago."
In which the employee responded that Best Buy only took pre-orders for the Special Edition. I watched Best Buy lose at least 10 sales while I stood there for 20 minutes, including mine. So fuck it I left, there is a private game shop, a Walmart and a GameStop still in this plaza. BTW I also wanted to pick up Tactics Ogre today and when I asked the Best Buy employee for that, he pulled up a computer screen that showed not 1 Best Buy in town ordered that game. Nubfarm.
The adventure continues. I went over the privately owned store to see if they had the Tactics or the MvC3 SE. The Jimmy behind the counter didn't even know what Tactics Ogre is and told me they don't usually order games like that. Like what? A Square Enix RPG? Jimmy? I asked him about the MvC3 SE and he told me that the SE is a Walmart, Best Buy and GameStop exclusive. More false information. The name of this store is Game Haven in Las Vegas and it should be renamed to the Palace of n00bs.
Ok fuck it then, I'll go to the GameStop. Of course GameStop won't sell me the SE, I can't believe this pre-order bullshit still happens. Especially on a major release with bonus content that is only $10 more on top of the regular edition. Order a extra few for the Jimmys that stumble in who don't have a pre-order. I then inquired about the Tactics Ogre and the GameStop employee told me that he hadn't received the shipment and that I should come back around 1pm. Ok I'm out. Walmart time.
At Walmart I couldn't find the Tactics Ogre either. They had the Marvel Vs Capcom 3 SE, but it was for the PS3 and I want the Xbox version. Foiled again! I asked the cross eyed Jimmy working in the department about the Tactics Ogre and he walked me back over the wall of games. Now I searched it thoroughly before I asked him, but I guess he just wanted to make sure.
"Well it's not on the wall, let me check the computer." He says. "Online only."
I just don't get it. Order some more games. Is it really that bad that you can't sell a minimum order so you can have a few extra copies at least on launch day. And who the fuck doesn't have Square Enix RPG PSP titles available. Today was a reminder why I have fallen in love with ordering games online and getting release day delivery. I don't have to look for shit, I don't have to drive to shit and I don't have to deal with nub-ass-cross-eyed-don't-give-a-shit-non-gaming-retail-employees.
Wait, it's not over yet. I have one more juicy tidbit for you. Driving out of the parking lot I saw the UPS man at the GameStop. Sweet I thought, I won't have to order Tactics Ogre online and possible miss out on having it for my trip. So I flipped a bitch and parked that muthafucka sideways.
Of course I walked back into the GameStop like we just had a conversation about the Tactics Ogre, but the Jimmy looked like he didn't recognize me. I asked him the Tactics was in those boxes.
"Probably, but it's gonna take me an hour to open them." The GameStop employee replied.
"An hour? Really? I'll wait a few minutes for you to open them." I replied.
"Well I don't know what box it's in." He said.
I told him: "It's probably in that long skinny box that looks like it's full of PSP games." Two minutes later he had it out and I was paying. I didn't have my GameStop card with me so I had to use my phone number. Spoiler alert! My card expired last month, would I like to renew for $14.95? No thank you, but what about my points that were on my card.
"You lose your points if you don't reactivate the card." The GameStop employee told me.
So GameStop has a rewards program for shopping there, but you have to pay for it. WTF. And instead of sending me any coupons or notifications in the mail about the card expiring, I get nothing and lose what little points I probably did have. GameStop fail. It amazes me even more that these stores continue to pop up. People gotta get hip and order online. Save gas, Save time and it's stress free. Just hope there isn't a blizzard somewhere holding up your package.
Thanks for reading my blithering blathering blog/rant. Don't be a Jimmy!
