Call of Duty

Ahhh, it’s a great time to be a gamer. Batman: Arkham City dropped a few weeks ago, Battlefield and Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception came out last week. And now Skyrim and Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 are out (And there are still hardcore Madden and NBA 2K12 gamers out there). There are plenty of great games to keep one’s attention throughout the fall and winter months. Just make sure the power bill stays paid. LOL. Click the comic to enlarge.

The hit video game Batman: Arkham City, the follow up to Batman:Arkham Asylum has already sold more than double what the original did, and quickly closing in on five million units sold. The game, produced by London based Rocksteady Studios, released last week for the Playstation 3 and XBox 360 platforms. 5 million units in seven days? I don’t know about you, but I think the real money in entertainment has shifted from music to video games. Check out the Batman: Arkham City trailer below if you haven’t gotten a chance to play the game yet.

New NBA 2K12 Commercial-Mark Cuban vs. Drake

NBA 2K12

In the latest NBA 2K12 commercial, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and rapper Drake debate who the all-time best team in the NBA is. Drake, apparently the #1 stan for the Miami Heat, boasts that the Heat are the best and will take multiple titles. Cuban counters by showing off the spoils of the 2011 NBA Finals. Check out the funny commercial below.

Greatest Team Ever

NBA 2K12 video game commercial

In anticipation of 2k Sports new NBA 2K12 video game, a new commercial recently was released in which Michael Jordan, Drake, Mark Cuban and several fans voiced their opinions on what team was the NBA’s greatest ever. In the commercial, the Larry Bird Boston Celtics, the Magic Johnson Showtime Lakers and of course MJ’s Chicago Bulls are mentioned . But, whats interesting is the inclusion is last season’s Miami Heat (included by Drake). While I am a huge fan of both LeBron and D-Wade, I can’t put that team in the conversation (mainly, because they didn’t win it all). However, at 100% full strength, I think they could take the Celtics and maybe even beat the Showtime Lakers; but the Bulls….MJ’s Bulls? Sorry Drake, I don’t believe for a second that anybody on Miami’s team could slow down MJ or Scottie Pippen. MJ’s mental toughness would cancel out LeBron’s freakish natural talent and I’m sure Dennis Rodman would have gotten all in Chris Bosh’s head.The 1995-96 Bulls would get my vote for best ever team ever. Your thoughts? Check out the commercial below.
