Are you ready for a trip to Dead Island?

By: DragonKiss83 Sep 19, 2011 | 3 Comments

As a fan of most things zombie I had high hopes for the game, but was nervous. But now that I've played it I want more.

Welcome to DragonKiss83's review for Dead Island.

Thanks to Redbox I was able to pick this up for the PS3 and give it a try on the cheap.  Maybe you guys here at gouki.com can get hooked up with them. Okay onto the game.

The opening video starts with what must be GoukiJones having a beer and stumbling around the island.  It ends with a shot of Jack straight from the bottle.  Just incase you have never played a zombie game before be warned there will be tons of violence, blood, and foul language.  I do not suggest playing this one around the little ones.

When you start the game you get to choose between four different characters.  Logan the throwing expert, Purna the firearms expert, Xian the sharp weapon expert, and Sam B the blunt weapon expert.  I went with Xian.  When you select your character they tell you their story.  For her the short version sound a lot like Chun Li, dad was a cop, dad dies, she becomes a cop.

As you make your way out of the hotel you can loot most of the luggage that you see.  I make it to the balcony just in time to see the first bodies fall past.  As you gather items you start finding some odd stuff, a belt, some glue, I'm assuming you'll need this stuff later (you do, you use it to upgrade weapons).  When you make it down stairs be sure to check the dead bodies, that's where I found my first health kit.  Still no weapon yet though.  And then my first encounter with the undead.  Followed very shortly by my first death.  When I reloaded the last checkpoint I was surprised to see that I didn't have to re-loot the stuff on the way back to the zombies.  But you do lose some money.  Run fucker run.  And you get introduced to your first group of survivors.  And finally a weapon, even if it is just a boat paddle.  Works great for bashing in some zombie heads.  Now the fun starts.

You will earn XP and level up as you play.  This allows you to spend skill points to build your character.  The story tells you that there is a monsoon coming and you are immune to the zombie virus.  Time to go save the wold. lol.  But now you get your first quest and really start the game.  I end up finding a pair of brass knuckles to beat the hell out of zombies with, this shit is crazy.  Feel free to nut punch a zombie to death.  You will find all kinds of weapons and you can also punch and kick.  But be sure to take a few seconds and checkout the great scenery they put in for you.  Some of the views make you wonder how the hell we were all happy to be trapped in a house for pretty much the entire game.

The soundtrack is more about the creepy zombie sounds you get as a warning and ambient sounds like waves on the beach or birds in the jungle.  But the music they do through in is pretty decent.  Once you get into the lifeguard station you find your first workbench ( I missed one on the beach somewhere).  Repairing or upgrading will cost you some of the cash you have collected.  But to create weapons you need the blueprint for it, the parts, and some cash.

After you secure that base the survivors show up in a truck.  Thanks for the ride assholes.  And I almost forgot to mention you can skip the cut scenes.  I know that makes a difference to some of you.

Like any good anything/rpg you can talk to NPCs with decent voice acting and pick up new missions and items.  You'll earn XP, money, items, and weapons.

Eventually you can also get behind the wheel of a truck when you find one that runs and drive it right over the zombies.  The steering is alright but could be better.  Plus you drive from the wrong side of the car so I keep getting it the wrong door.  As the vehicle takes damage it begins to show.  You end up busting out the windshield and eventually the engine starts to smoke.  I haven't had one breakdown yet though.

You get a mini-map you can set locations on and find your way around.  I know it's helped me a ton already.  For an island you have a fairly open world to explore.  Some doors can be battered down even.  And multiple paths are everywhere you look.

I haven't got to try out the multi-player yet, but plan on a trip to my brother's tonight.  You can also do this online, but I don't want to be the noob who gets everyone killed so I'll wait a bit before going online.

I say Buy It.  If you are a zombie fan you will love this game.  I'm going to turn it back on right now as a matter of fact.  Don't be a jimmy!

Review: Dead Rising

By: blazemanx Jun 25, 2011 | 5 Comments

Resident evil is capcoms flagship zombies series but dead rising is the new king of zombie action!

Dead rising is one of those games that won't seem that great until you truly get into the meat of the game. When i first bought it i didn't like it but i saw potential in it so i bought it again one day to give it another chance. As of now it is one of my all time favorites read the review and find out why this is the ULTIMATE zombie experience.


Frank controls like most other game characters, you run around using the left thumb stick and use X to attack things, you can also press the right trigger to enter an over-the-shoulder mode (like RE4) and use the weapons you have in different ways, some you just throw away when in this mode (melee weapons mostly), but then there are the guns which of course aim much better in this mode, and there are also some things (like hockey clubs, golf clubs, bowling balls, etc) that will allow you to use them as you would normally use them (in a non-zombies situation that is).

The other thing about the gameplay is that in the beginning you will probably feel kind of weak, you start out with no real abilities except the ability to jump and use weapons, and then as you progress and beat bosses, complete missions, kill zombies and escort survivors to safety, you gain levels and with this gain more attack power, speed, health slots and new cool attacks that you can use to get the zombies out of your way. This makes you feel like you really are getting better at what you are doing as you progress through the game.

Another thing that has been talked a lot about is the save system. The thing about the save system is that you only have one slot per profile so you can only save over your previous saved game when you want to save the next time, this can cause problems sometimes since the game uses a time mechanic which gives you deadlines to get from mission to mission, so sometimes when you've been doing a couple of side missions and need to get to the next mission you realize that you are at the exact opposite side of the mall and that you really need to boot it to the next mission if you want to get there in time, then all of a sudden you realize the truth, no matter what you do you'll never make it, you have to reboot your last save. But wait, you just saved in one of the mall's bathrooms a couple of minutes ago! You then realize that no matter what you do, you CAN'T make it  you have to restart the entire game from the very beginning!

Oh, well, that's what I've heard has happened to loads of people who have played this game, let me assure you it has never happened to me... If you pay attention to the clock at least the first time you play through the game you should be able to avoid these problems pretty much all together.

Then there is one small thing that also needs to be mentioned is the fact that if you are playing on a standard definition television (like I was at first) the game will sometimes take a frustrating turn when it comes to it's text size. Sometimes it is just impossible to see what someone is saying and even though it doesn't really hurt the overall value of the game since you can almost always simply choose the mission from your mission list and get a nice little arrow to point you in the direction of the next mission, it would still be nice to get to hear all the dialog that's going on around you. Because sometimes it can be quite mood setting or funny since all the characters have different backgrounds and stories to tell.


The characters in general look very good  I was surprised, even though I had low expectations of this game because of its release date I still didn't imagine that the cast of characters would be so well done both physically and psychologically. Of course some characters aren't as well done as the most important ones, many of the survivors are pretty plainly done, but that is to be expected in a game with so many characters in it.

Dead Rising also has some of the most memorable bosses in the history of video games. They are all extreme versions of stereotypes that we all know and love. There's Steve, the store owner who will do anything to stop shoplifter's, Cletus the hick who owns the rifle shop in the mall who speaks with a southern accent and drinks all the time and then of course there's Adam, a clown that wields two chainsaws and complains over the fact that no one laughs at him since the zombies came and scared all the people away.

Then last but certainly not least is the mall itself, full of colors and all kinds of weird stores. The mall basically looks like you're dream place for a game like this, there are different plazas that all have different themes and color schemes. For example in the North Plaza, which is under construction there are things such as a camera store, garden store, and a super market where you can find loads of health items. In Wonderland Plaza there is an overall childish theme, with a roller coaster and big bunnies and playground all around, basically the game does it's best to make it feel like you really have different reasons to go to different parts of the mall and in most cases it succeeds in this aspect.


Don't really have much to say here, because quite frankly, the audio is great. All the sounds of stuff hitting other stuff is great, axes, shower heads, lawn mowers, bowling balls and chainsaws make the sounds you expect them to so in that aspect the game is pretty much complete.

Then there's the voice acting, which also, is really superb. All the characters have good voice actors that make the dialog sound like it's taken directly from a zombie movie, I especially like the voice actor that plays Frank, and he makes a really good effort and definitely comes off as the best of the otherwise still really good cast of actors.


The story starts out quite simple, you are Frank West a photojournalist that has spent his life covering wars and other horrible things. So Frank gets a tip that something weird is going on in the little mountain town of Willamette, Colorado. Frank sets off to find out what this is all about arrives in town by helicopter only to find the whole town in chaos. So Frank tells the pilot to let him off on the roof of the mall and come back for him in 72 hours. So at this point to take control of Frank and you start to meet people in the mall that have survived the outbreak thus far and as you help these people you slowly but surely uncover the truth behind the outbreak, and all I'm going to say is that there is more going on behind the scenes than one might think.

Final Verdict: BUY IT!

I completely love Dead Rising It does everything right mostly and if you are a fan of zombies movies you will most certainly notice it. The game also does like most zombie movies in showing that during a zombie outbreak it's not the zombies that are the real threat it's the people that are dangerous since they often take an unstable turn when put under pressure. So to sum it all up, Dead Rising manages to combine an engaging story with brilliant characters with great level design, good gameplay mechanics, great audio presentation and good old violence and gore. Anyone with a 360 should definitely check it out.

This game may be kind of old now and has had a sequel made but it can stand the test of time. Are there any of you out there who have not tried it? Let us know and don't be a jimmy.

New Dead Island Trailer shows In-Game Footage

By: iorilamia May 17, 2011 | 8 Comments

Another beautiful yet sad Dead Island video.

Great music, depressing video (like last time). New Dead Island trailer shows some in-game stuff, but it isn't much. Glad we finally get something besides pictures though.

Uploaded by http://www.youtube.com/user/pixelenemy


So how was the trailer? They do a good job making you feel bummed out for these vacationed families and couples. The pictures, music and slow-motion really comes together well.  The game is looking really good and detailed, can't wait for more footage. Anyone interested in this game? Seems pretty cool, especially since it will be sand-box style. Leave a comment on what you think,  don't be a jimmy.

I was ready to pass on the next DLC until I saw the Zombie level..

Let's get right to what you want to see.

I could have done with out the extra DLC for Call of Duty: Black Ops, then I saw what they had planned for the zombie mode.  To be able to play as Robert Englund had me sold, but then you add Sarah Michelle Gellar, and Danny Trejo.   It'll be out for Xbox 360 May 3, and PS3 will see it about a month later, and again it'll be $15.  So now if you have both DLC packs you're looking at around $100 put into this game. Hopefully we'll have PSN back by then.

I know most of you are done with Call of Duty, but does this make you want to play it any?  Let's Hear what you think.

Here are the Achievements







So far these look like better new levels than what we got for first strike.  But 360 users are playing it now and for us waiting for the PS3 release and for PSN even.

But I think the rest of you are waiting for the good stuff.

Call of the Dead

Robert Englund had me sold.

Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City Trailer !

By: iorilamia Mar 30, 2011 | 3 Comments

Our first look at the upcoming co-op Resident Evil game, Operation Raccoon City.

Trailer finally released, and it doesn't show much. Honestly a bit bland but, what else could you do in a Zombie trailer? Front kick into headstomp followed by gas station explosion is cool though. Looks like alot of special forces running around owning shit but the graphics are a bit lacking. On the upside I do like all the mahem going down in the crowded streets, looks like sh*t went reaaaaaal bad. Check it out and leave a comment on what you think about this little reveal.
