The Most Hilarious Sports Game Glitches, Now In Motion

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, » 2/26/13 8:00pm 2/26/13 8:00pm

China is Linsane. It's Trying To Claim Jeremy Lin.

If you're a basketball fan, or a New Yorker, you've definitely heard about Linsanity. It's the underdog story of a Chinese American Harvard graduate being undrafted and cut from NBA teams before exploding in, well, "Linsanity". And for the past two weeks, it has been the talk of the sports world. No one saw Jeremy Lin… » 2/20/12 6:45am 2/20/12 6:45am

If This is the Only NBA on Your TV All Year, NBA 2K12 Supplies the…

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… » 10/26/11 8:30pm 10/26/11 8:30pm

Every Night is Basketball Appreciation Night in NBA 2K12

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 Mister … » 10/04/11 5:00pm 10/04/11 5:00pm

I Could Never Stay Mad at You, NBA 2K12

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 willing … » 9/29/11 11:20pm 9/29/11 11:20pm

NBA 2K12's Legendary Teams Are Pay-to-Play for Online Multiplayer

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… » 9/28/11 7:30pm 9/28/11 7:30pm

NBA 2K12 Offers In-Game Ads You May Actually Enjoy Watching

That's because you'll star in them. In the "My Player" career mode, if you become a superstar you'll be pitched to appear in official league advertisements, including the league's well known "Where Amazing Happens," campaign, with you as the amazing happening. » 9/08/11 10:00pm 9/08/11 10:00pm

Peter Moore: EA Sports' NBA Game "Will Take a Few Years" Before It…

Though recently promoted to Electronic Arts' chief operating officer, EA Sports' old boss, Peter Moore, still is involved with products coming out of that division. And in an interview with IndustryGamers, he said he doesn't expect their next NBA simulation, due in 2012 after a two-year hiatus, to compete with NBA 2K » 9/04/11 2:00pm 9/04/11 2:00pm

Sure, It's Hype, but NBA 2K12's Latest Trailer is Still Pretty Badass

This is all marketing, OK? This is a sizzle trailer, even if it is two-and-a-half minutes long and packed with gameplay (and one outstanding choice of music). But in addition to hyping the living hell out of NBA 2K12 it does offer a few things of value: One, a look at the presentation of old-time games within the… » 8/31/11 11:30pm 8/31/11 11:30pm

Achievement List Hints at New Features, Including "Online Association,"…

In my preview on Wednesday all I got to look at was "NBA's Greatest" and the play-now mode of NBA 2K12. So I can't tell you anything about an "Online Association" mode, other than the fact the game's achievement list hints it will have one. » 8/28/11 4:00pm 8/28/11 4:00pm
