Rad Show: NBA 2K13 with Space Jam Mod

Ladies and Gents, the Gentlemans Club is away this week so I decided to fill their empty seat. With the Steam Autumn Sale going down on the mean streets of the internet, I decided to throw my money at NBA 2K13 for one reason....

C'mon and SLAM! There's an NBA2k13 Space Jam mod

I'm not sure how this eluded me for three months, but I am here to make amends. Why there's no Quad City DJs pumped over the boring in-game audio I don't know, but this is a thing of beauty all the same. Game jams are such a huge thing these days -- let's see a Space Jam game jam, please.

NBA Live lives, coming to PS4 and Xbox One photo
NBA Live lives, coming to PS4 and Xbox One
by Steven Hansen



NBA Elite 11
got cancelled once upon a time, dramatically close to its expected release. Fast forward a few years. EA tried to get back in the simulation basketball game with NBA Live 13, but it too got canned due to "quality concerns." As good as the NBA 2K basketball series has become, quality definitely should be a concern for EA.

NBA Live 14 still seems far off. The game is shooting for a PS4 and Xbox One release. EA's booth featured a little sample of the game running on the PlayStation 4 and featuring Cavaliers rookie Kyrie Irving. Irving was restricted to half of the court with a zoomed in, practice mode style camera angle that really let you appreciate the high quality assets running on next gen. Generally speaking, I'm actually rather excited to see sports developers finally get a hardware bump that will allow them to cram more tech into what are generally meant to be realistic, simulation-style games.

Preview: NBA 2K12
by Steven Hansen

As we reported earlier, NBA 2K12’s cover athletes -- yes, athletes -- have been revealed, but I’m sure some fans aren’t sold yet. After all, we want some advancement in our games, right? Well, I was able to get my hands on NBA 2K12 and guess what? The game plays great.

The team that pulled out all the stops with last year’s bold, Jordan-themed game isn’t ready to just rest on their laurels. NBA 2K12 looks to capture the authenticity of the NBA by adding a plethora of gameplay improvements that help keep the player feeling immersed in the game while simultaneously ramping up the attention to detail in order to properly recreate NBA atmosphere.
