As a Demon hunter I think Dante has every right to be as a**hole and every right to do as he pleases. I mean come on, he is the pretty much the only one truly giving a damn about society and the brain washing that is indeed going on. The funny thing is that we all know that corporations are evil, but in DMC they kick up the evil through the roof by having it all run by demons. In my book that is not going to fly right on my soul, especially when my soul is indeed on the line. This is my first impression of the remake or revamp which ever you prefer to title it of Devil May Cry, which is slated to be release in January of 2013. I hope you enjoy the show.

It comes to that one question and it is, “Would you battle forces solo or with a partner?” I’ve been experiencing this sort of gaming starting from the 80’s till present. There has been a big transition from playing two player on one screen to now which almost every game can be played privately together in different rooms. I believe it is a lot safer now because when your player 2 or 1 does something really stupid you can just knock them over the head with the controller or tell them to leave! That time is still there, but on a rare occasion. I am here to talk about those few times where it was good, it at times turned bad and other times made me go what the f**k you doing?

The great developers at Neocore Games had a contest to pick the new look of their upcoming title, The Adventures of Van Helsing. The contest is finally over and the mysterious stranger design is now complete which I had to say looks pretty impressive. The design of the Mysterious Stranger gives it a darker and gothic feel as you play through this action RPG which is slated to release on PC, as well as Xbox 360. The video below will show you the sketch done for the winning piece.
Side Information on the character:
“And who is this mysterious man? He is the son of the legendary monster hunter Abraham Van Helsing, and although he might be young, he is far from inexperienced. But fate has different plans for him than for his father. To defeat the new threat, he has to side with the ancient monsters of Borgovia and reconsider everything he learned to believe…”
The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing is set to be released in 2013 as a digital download. Be sure to check back for more information as it develops and I hope you enjoyed this quick preview. Congrats to the Neocore development team for making such an amazing character design. Stay frosty!
The world of COD begins a new as tonight is the midnight release of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 and this time around we have a more futuristic story plot that takes place with the previous protagonist son. I know everyone is excited to get on tonight and rank up to get their prestige before the end of the week, but before that the nice people Treyarch want you to know about some polices that will get your account permanently banned and unable to play the game online. Now certain individuals of the gaming community are already in an uproar about these policies because they feel it is putting a leash on their “Fun Game Nights” and not realizing their actions are turning people away from online gaming. I have talked to certain few that responded to my question on this matter of Trash Talk vs Verbal Abuse in the online gaming world. So without further delay, let’s get this started.

This is Kuma and we have a special review today which I am very happy about since it is from my writing mentor. I was pretty much raised by this man when he first took me to his job at a particular comic book store in the city. That opened my eyes to a different world of story telling from what I was accustom to in regular literature. I went on to getting into fictional story writing, but Dx tended to table in all aspects of writing. This gentlemen right here is part of the gene pool that crafted the writer you all enjoy today and I am honored to have him as a guest writer for the latest release of James Bond Skyfall. In that without further hesitation please give a warm welcome to Dx Harris.
I always enjoy a good behind the scenes videos on upcoming titles. I am just wondering if this new version of Devil May Cry will live up to the fans expectations, because I am enjoying the revamp and more grounded storyline. They are keeping the silly intact, but it is more morbid humor and they down played the anime style giving this a more western look. I hope you enjoyed this preview and stay tuned as the game shall be released in January, but for now check out the Kuma’s aStore to put down your pre-order now. Stay frosty demon hunters.

The world of video games has been a part of my life since I was a little cub rocking out on the Nintendo Entertainment system back in the 80′s. My history goes from Mario Bros. all the way to Halo series. The evolution in games has been amazing, but as we all know that classic’s will always be in our hearts and for some us still in our collection. The great minds at Disney decided to touch base on the genre and make a movie based on a retro villain trying to re-write his program. There have been many video game movies out there, but this one actually touches base on what happens when the arcade closes and video games getting a rest, I kind of feel bad for home entertainment consoles when you think about it. I took it upon myself to sit through two hours in a crowd of children just to enjoy a movie that I am glad they waited to make for a long time. This is my review of Wreck It Ralph.
