I expect weirdness from the sequel to Barkley Shut Up And Jam: Gaiden, but even I was taken aback by the discovery of a turn-based basketball mini-game.
A teaser trailer for Barkley 2, a sequel to the hilarious Barkley, Shut Up And Jam: Gaiden, has arrived. It’s promoting the game being at PAX later this week—I can’t wait to check it out—and teases a release in...2023. (The developers tell us it’s actually early next year.)
Two scientists get their hands on an Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device. Do they try to unlock its secrets? Eventually, maybe. But, first, there's an epic game of hoops to be had.
Yeah, one of them is a bit more dramatic. Inspired by Kuroko no Basket, squishguin's video is really spot on with all the talking and small details. This could work with any kind of sport.
The constant progression of annual sport titles has another advantage besides the games getting more and more realistic every year. It creates moments where the players go nuts—suddenly, our ordinary game turns itself into Dragon Ball Z or Super Smash TV. We selected below a few of these from the last few years' FIFA…
This dude takes arcade basketball to the next level. He went through the effort of hijacking all of the extra basketballs in the arcade, and then proceeds to hurl rocks like a champion.
Baseball parks' larger, varying dimensions and nonstandard playing areas make for unique camera angles, familiar for fans who watch the local broadcasts but markedly different to others. MLB 2K11 (and MLB The Show 11) sought to replicate this in this year's game. But just because the court dimensions are uniform and…
With the first two weeks of the NBA season canceled thanks to the lockout, some players have gone looking for alternative employment. Gordon Hayward of the Utah Jazz, for example, was in a Starcraft pro gaming tournament this past weekend, just barely finishing out of the money.
Midway through an early season Hornets-Heat contest the screen cuts to a promotion telling me Friday night, Kobe Bryant and the Lakers take on the Denver Nuggets at Staples Center. Sounds like a good game, I think to myself. What time is that on? 7:30 p.m., the screen tells me.
The inability to switch off between players was one of the few drawbacks of an otherwise rollicking NBA Jam revival last year. It required some clunky manipulation of your starting lineup and defense, for those who actually played it, often left a man open as you instinctively swarmed to the guy your CPU partner was…
It is 2 a.m. and I'm going to score 60 points with Dell Curry. Having unlocked the 1992-1993 Charlotte Hornets—you had better believe it was the first thing I did in NBA 2K12—I've started Dell in place of Kendall Gill and he is, well, he's beating his son. Stephen Curry's Golden State Warriors have no answer for…
NBA 2K12 has had a rough couple of weeks. A lot of the goodwill built up in August for the game's nostalgic "NBA's Greatest" mode was washed out by news of lockout-frozen rosters and repackaged premium DLC. And then Kurtis Blow comes up over the speakers, and Dikembe wags his finger at you, and you find yourself…
2K Sports' award-winning NBA 2K series will debut on iOS mobile devices next week with NBA 2K12 the same day the title releases on consoles and PC. The game will include the popular "Jordan Challenge" that made last year's NBA 2K11 such a hit.
Earlier this month Kotaku reported, per 2K Sports itself, that the historic teams featured in NBA 2K12's "NBA's Greatest" mode would not be available for online play. That turns out not to be the case. A Twitter photo from someone with the game already shows that gamers can take the 1993 Chicago Bulls or 1986 Boston…
Roster update. In sports video games, it's not a selling point as much as it is a term of abuse, one that implies that accurate rosters in annual titles have almost no value to a discerning video gamer. Well, in a couple of weeks, we may find out how important this baseline expectation really is.
2K Sports just announced on the Facebook page for NBA 2K12 that the game's demo will arrive on Tuesday, for both PS3 and Xbox 360, two weeks before its Oct. 4 release.
Some ramped-up role-playing sequences in NBA 2K12's "My Player" career mode have delivered an unlikely first: David Stern, the NBA commissioner, is the first league officer—to anyone's recollection—to appear, both in voice and in motion capture, in a video game.
