Kuma’s Preview of Call of Duty: Black Ops II Zombies Trailer

It seems that in Call of Duty: Black Ops II, there will be a different spin on characters that you will use against the Zombie horde. This new trailer will reveal all the fun and gore that will be had during your romp on Black Ops II new Zombie mode. I am particularly interested in the mechanics of mobile combat, because one of the scenes shows the four players on a moving bus fighting off the horde as you proceed to the next town. Will this be how you transition through the game? Having to fight your way to the next town as a computer transports you over? That would be pretty darn cool if that were the case. I hope you...

Kuma’s Preview Update of Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist Freedom or Power?

The question in the title is a strong question which I have asked many people ever since someone in my past asked me, "Do I want Freedom or a Government?" I stated that I would rather have power, because everyone has freedom, but with that it negates your freedoms. It negates your own freedom because many people out there have a second ability and that is power over your freedoms. I bring this up again because as Sam Fisher; you will have the power to keep those freedoms in check. I have been a Splinter Cell fan since Pandora tomorrow and frankly it had its ups and downs. The last one I played was conviction and now that Blacklist is coming out, I can't help but wonder if they are rebooting his character? It seems...

Kuma’s Honorable Mention: Male Gamer of the Month Doctor Ragelove

It is always interesting how I run into intriguing people in the geek world. I met this young kid from Connecticut. I am not going to lie, dude looked like a boy band reject from hell, but after he got over the fact that I am not going to treat him like a human punching bag. It turned into a gaming friendship. The best part is playing stereo type game and after a while he realized I rap or play basketball and he actually survived Brooklyn. We became the new Bacardi and cola Spartans for a bit in Halo Reach. The dude goes by Sean, but on xbox live he is known as Doctor Ragelove and also plays Starcraft on the side. Also...

Kuma Presents Saturday Night Battle of the Sexes 9/22/12

I have said it before and I have said many times over. If you have the right people in any multi-player, you will have the best time you ever have in any game. In this case it is Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3 and ever since I met the crew of Elite Girl Gamer and the annual female vs. male matches. All are welcome to have friendly competition to see, who is the better gender at “FPS” in Modern Warfare 3. In all honesty it is so far even combat skills. I have been a part of five battles and as of right now the men have been winning four straight victories. The ladies have been pushing us...

Kuma’s Review of Batman: Dark Knight Returns Part 1 ::Spoiler Free::

What is one thing that many people fear? The majority of people reaching that time fears when they become too old and not being useful. In Bruce Wayne's case, it is more about not keeping a promise and leaving behind unfinished duties to the city he swore to protect. The Dark Knight Returns is the story of Batman at the age of 55 retired, but with still unfinished work. Gotham has a new threat of gang members and old foes are starting to resurface. The thing that many people fail to realize is that evil is a hard working entity that never takes a break, but once good decides to take a breather... that's when evil germinates like an infectious disease. The Batman may not be what people wanted in a Hero, but when I...

Kuma’s Preview of Legend of Fat Ninja

Greetings mobile users, welcome to this preview coming straight from WGCNY and published by Zephyr Games called The Legend of Fat Ninja. This new mobile game will feature the combination game-play physics of angry birds, but with an arcade score chaining styles of pinball games. The game takes a pinball aspect once you launch Fat Ninja, you are able to direct his movements by tapping in the direction for his attacks. It resembles the bumper system of a classic pinball machine, but of course with a more groovy and ninjitsu mix for the player to humorously enjoy. The attack physics will work in your favor as each of your attacks bounce off an enemy. The trick is to keep up the momentum...

Kuma’s Review of Dredd in 3D ::Spoiler Free::

What does the law mean to you? It varies from person to person, either you respect it or you spit on it. No matter how you feel towards the law, in the end it will come down on you, one way or another! Some of you already know that I was mostly brought up in a comic book store and Dredd was one of the comics I read as a young "hero in training". When the mid 90's came around and a Judge Dredd movie was happening, I was young and excited, but that of course came with disappointment when the movie finally came out. It is now 2012 and the actually writers stepped in and said, "Let’s try and give...

Kuma’s Thought and Preview of Injustice: Gods Among Us

Greetings gamers, welcome to this Injustice: Gods Among Us preview and thoughts panel where Kuma will share with you his expectations on this upcoming title. I don't know how many of you have already played Mortal Kombat vs. DC and I am not going to get into it with you about who liked it or not. In my opinion having a Mortal Kombat style game with no fatalities for both sides is kind of weak. In going into it as a comic fan, the battles were really one sided and unbelievable. I think the developers at NetherRealms Studios, wanted to redeem themselves with this new fighter strictly based on the DC Universe. If you seen the videos and the screens, the...

Kuma’s Thought: What is a Gamer?

Greetings gamers, this is Kuma here and a few days ago talking to some intriguing ladies at "Gamer Chicks Gone Wild", who posted this question:
so who decides these guide lines that make the call if you are indeed a real gamer ... does that title come with certain rules and regulations??? does it depend what games yo play , what system you game on, or how much you actually game?? hmm I want to know what your thoughts are on this topic... -Bubblez
I am expecting a flame war to happen, but I really want this to be a good discussion on how many of you feel about...
