Gaming Easter Eggs

By: Zero2990 Oct 28, 2012 | 3 Comments

What's your favourite gaming Easter eggs?

I'm not really a fan of Easter Eggs in games, I find it pointless hunting for a subtle hint of a Star Trek episode I don't watch or a prologue to Halo 4. I've been playing through Skyrim a lot recently and I have found a few that made me chuckle, 1. A fist fight in the Silver Blood Inn at Markarth when an onlooker shouted 'Remember, Hit the one in the middle' a cool reference to Rocky 4 when Rocky is talking to Duke in the corner 2. Possible Link from Zelda? A pit near Whiterun with an impaled elf wearing Links famous green tunic and hat. 3. Star Wars TESB, I can't exactly remember the cave but one where a Skeleton is hanging upside down from the ceiling pointing towards a sword stuck in a snow pile and also a lot of Snow trolls around. 4. The Hangover, one quest in the game seems to be the exact same plot as the movie, 3 groomsmen have lost their friend and have to retrace their steps to find him before he marries the next day. While retracing their steps they found out they had been up to no good the night before like stealing a goat.. There was a few more but I couldn't be bothered to write things out So Skyrim is full of funny little references to Bethesdas favourite games/Movies What does everyone else think of Easter eggs, does it add quirkiness to a game or take away the fun in moments?

The Conduit 2 Review

By: reipuerto Jun 30, 2011 | 10 Comments

Will Michael Ford stop the alien invasion or be destroyed?

The sequel to one of the Wii's under-appreciated games gets a great update, story and gameplay. Published by SEGA and developed by High Voltage Software, if you own a Wii, check this out!

Story- You play as Michael Ford, who's voiced by the talented Jon St. John(Duke Nukem Jimmy!!), and it's your duty to save the world and stop John Adams from an alien invasion. This story continues right after the first one. You followed Adams through the conduit and the story unfolds with amusing and interesting twists! You land inside Atlantis and use it's conduit to travel and stop Adams, with the help of Andromeda and the new The Destroyer suit. It's a fun experience that changes the way you look at Prometheus and his “good” intentions. I won't spoil anything here but it's a fun experience that'll take you to different location form China and their Jade Warriors to the arctic tundra of Siberia! You'll travel from place to place all over the world.

Gameplay- “BOOM!! Head shot!!” Tight, fluid and fast, with it's own special sauce from High Voltage Games. It's a first person shooter that you point to the screen and destroy baddy for lunch and dinner. Each weapon has a secondary fire and can really make you feel like a super agent from the future. What I love about this series is their choices of weapons and how they implement their special fire. The regular human weapons have iron site, which works well with the tight controls. The alien's weapons have such a diverse use of fire, it makes you appreciate High Voltage Games choice of weapons and experimentation of them. One gun doesn't use ammo, so your shoots are unlimited and you can charge it to become invisible for a short while, but it'll freeze up your gun if you say in that mode. How do you fix that? Start shooting. The gun heats up when shot but cools when charged. Great balance and it's just one of the many weapons that you'll encounter, like a gun that shoots through walls. Grenades are still there and they can really help you in pressuring fights. The use of WiiMotin Plus is only used for on screen cursor if moved TOO far, which I didn't have a problem to begin with. You can even upgrade your armor suit and use those power ups to make the fight more enjoyable as the game progresses. Now, online!

Online- The game supports a whooping 14 game modes across 12 different maps and nice ranking, WITH the support of the new microphone headset, and 12 players going wild, you're truly missing out on one of the Wii's most enjoyable online experience! They even include an online mode called “Invasion Mode” which is fight to survive ways of enemies. With the addition of individual perks and team perks, you'll be surprised on how divers each match could be.

Sound- Great audio work from Jon St. John giving Ford's character more personality. It makes me feel like I'm playing as Duke Nukem at some points! But sound effects from the weapon sound great. Head shots are crunchy, and voice work from everyone else is not bad. The sound track does give some heart pounding music and tension in every boss fight, and the levels themselves are not too shabby! Bright and detailed design and color make is easy on the eyes.

Graphics- High Voltage Software know how to use the Wii. With more color pallet and distinctive level design, each stage is a new experience and sight. Granted, this is not a PS3 or Xbox360 game, so the game does look good in it's own merits. Minor graphical detail in some places but that's just nitpicking.

Overall- BUT IT! With an exciting single player experience and online one of the best, you'll be playing this with friends for hours! I'm now stroked what SEGA and High Voltage Software will have in store for the next game~

Personal opinion here, so skip to the Jimmy notes for a gist of my review.

Reviewers have stated that there is a bug in the save feature and that's NOT true. What turns me away from other editors is the lack of gameplay skills and knowledge they have. The glitch are save points that save when you die. Nope. Only if you run PAST the enemies or jump off a cliff into the next area, the game is programed to autosave in new areas, but you're suppose to defeat the enemies which contradicts the nature of the game, and go down the given path. Seriously! These reviewers, in my opinion, are lazy and just want to get their review out “FIRST”, like every comment on every page, to get more hits! Rather than enjoy a game and what it has to offer in their years of development process and be late on a review, to give a full detail on what they're trying to accomplish and deliver.

Jimmy Notes

Pros

  • Great online
  • Great design and art work
  • Tight controls
  • Awesome guns
  • Good replayability

Cons

  • Cliff hanger ending

E3 Nintendo Press Conference Review

By: reipuerto Jun 7, 2011 | 5 Comments

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!

iorilamia's E3 Wishlist

By: iorilamia May 29, 2011 | 13 Comments

Games I wish to get some / more information on from this years E3.

E3 is coming up very soon and...I can't go. But mods of Gouki.com are! My wishlist contains Tekken X Street fighter, Serious Sam 3 BFE, El Shaddai: Ascension of Metatron, DmC and Bioshock Infinite. Here is why:

 Tekken x Street Fighter

We have been getting lots of information and videos on SFxTekken but not the other way around. Recently getting into Tekken it was a bummer hearing Namco hasn't really started Tekken x Sf. Apparently Namco is showing something off about it at this years E3. Even before getting into Tekken, I was wondering  how they would treat fireball characters in Tekken (Tekken has sidestepping so....) Also Tekken characters move lists are huge. The amount of target combos they have highly exceeds SF and the specials as well. In SfxTekken they shown Tekken elements such as launchers and ground juggles. I would love to see what SF-esque mechanics will be put into the Tekken Version.

 Serious Sam 3 BFE

Am I a Duke Nukem fan? No. But I loved playing Serious Sam. Not much is known about this new Serious Sam besides it has amazing HD graphics and brings back some of the older enemies in the series in a visually glorious way. Graphics of course aren't everything, I loved Serious Sam for the gameplay, cheezy one liners and how very un-serious it was.

The loads of cheesy-ness and ridiculous weapons and enemies made the series extremely enjoyable. Apparently the game is a prequel to Serious Sam: First encounter and your in Egypt. The game will have 16 player Co-op in Campaign, holy hell. I don't know what type of in-sane campaign they will have going on but that sounds intense. I hope some sort of player vs player multiplayer game modes are announced. The older Sam games had it, this beautiful one should have it too!

El Shaddai: Ascension of Metatron

El Shaddai isn't a game many people know about, but they should. It's been released in Japan already and I've been eagerly awaiting the American release and deep info on the game. It is a third person action game with some plat-forming. The fighting looks amazing with cool fluid movements and very interesting graphics. Mainly the look and feel of the game seem very enjoyable. The closest thing I could relate this game too is Devil May Cry. If you put a Dante skin in the game, it would work just fine ;) Hopefully I can see more in-depth explanations of what Shadai has to offer because although it looks amazing, it could get old fast.

DMC Devil May Cry

I was hyped ever since the new DMC was announced. Most people are hating on Dante's new look as the young jerk teen but I like it. A new but still badass take on a game can be good after all the years. I want a good solid gameplay video, showing what truly sets this DMC a part from the others. In the TGS video they showed off his main weapon. Which was a sword that could extend but seemed like a snake? Can't wait to see what else is in store.

Bioshock Infinite

Bioshock Infinite looks infinitely fun to play! The graphics are mind blowing, and the setting is crazy. On a floating colony and people go crazy and have super powers, fighting all along the city in the sky and on rails. the powers look great too. The game looks extremely action packed and worth buying already. What seemed really cool in one of the elements was how you and the girl you are with can combine powers to trigger badass explosions and such. They have been gracious enough to show us awesome previews but they didn't differ much. I want to see something new and a real release-date.

 

Well that is my E3 2011 wish-list. Hopefully some of you are excited by these games as well, leave a comment on which ones you want.

Dragon Age II Montage

By: goukijones Mar 22, 2011 | 4 Comments

Playing Dragon Age type games, like Mass Effect or KOTOR always leads to some shenanigans. I love this genre, because I love fuckin' with every possibility. I recorded a bunch of different clips from mostly the first act. I hope you enjoy it.

The Highlights.

0:05 Female Hawke getting drunk.
0:41 Perfectly Calm.
0:53 Raipin'.
1:22 The Hard One with Isabela.
1:34 Experience the deep story ... (Actual goukijones play style)
2:05 Just strange.
2:18 All girl team. What's up with Merrill?
2:30 Giant dead spider.
2:35 Fuck you, pay me.
2:44 Don't be a Varric! (Do not bring this Jimmy into important fights. He is a nub.)
3:05 Health bar glitch. (Again for the record: Don't be a Varric! Bianca my ass. Pausing the game seemed to get me out of the glitch. Varric must have been drinking a potion when he got knocked down and it never reset.)
4:11 End game raip. (This is all about how my team was wreckin' shop on some regular nuabs omw to fight the bosses. That's right I said bosses, the game is BadAssNice.)
5:00 Fenris takes a friendly fire Bursting Arrow to the chest. Hilarious. I didn't even know friendly fire was possible that way.

And now I would like to present to you ...

My Dragon Age II Montage.
