Given the ass-kicking that former Thunder star Kevin Durant suffered in his first game with the Warriors, it’s not unreasonable for reporters to be curious about what Durant’s former teammates thought of the game. Unfortunately for them, Steven Adams was too busy watching anime to cook up any juicy anti-Warriors…
Hot off one of the worst seasons in NBA history, the Philadelphia 76ers invests in a different sport entirely. The team has purchased controlling stakes in Team Dignitas and Apex, merging them into a single esports team managed and maintained by the professional sports organization.
This week in Japan, a new pro basketball league is getting underway, and tonight’s game between Alvark Tokyo and the Ryukyu Golden Kings is being played on an LED court. It’s nuts.
NBA Live 17 will not arrive this fall, but early next year under the more generic title NBA Live. The series hasn’t been so hot for a while but try try again? On an investor call, EA said more details are coming soon, and a mobile game is coming later this year. The NBA All-Star game takes place in February.
If you’ve been playing Overwatch’s beta, you’re probably familiar with basketballs in starter areas. Usually people just shoot at them until the match starts, and then they’re left behind, forlorn and forgotten. A couple players, though, figured out how to weaponize them.
Well, that’s certainly a skin that wouldn’t work in Diablo III, but is completely fine in the casual environment of Heroes of the Storm. Act III’s “Lord of Sin” from Diablo III now has a slam dunk-ready alternate, called... Azmodunk!
Who are you?
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, …
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…
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…
