NBA Jam: On Fire Edition for PSN/XBLA in action

When Electronic Arts released NBA Jam as a full retail title for Wii and then later Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, it seemed like a bit of a marketing mistake. The game itself was good and fun in spurts, but its dated gameplay didn't really hold up to the expectations of a full retail experience.

With NBA Jam: On Fire Edition, EA seems to be doing it right. That game it tried to sell folks for $49.99 in a box is coming back as a digital title for PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Arcade. It also seems like it may be a more full-featured, better game than the original. There's all new team-based "on fire," a new online co-op campaign, roster updates, enhanced AI, and more.

It's not going to cost an arm and a leg this time around -- it's only $14.99 or 1200 MS Points. Sounds good to me.

NBA Jam: Balls, nets and honey badgers

I confess that I don't know much about basketball, but if I had known that honey badgers played it I would have been all over it. For obvious and logical reasons honey badgers will feature in NBA Jam: On Fire Edition. It will be available on PSN and Xbox Live on October 5th. If you can't wait that long feel free to risk your life by challenging a real honey badger to a game or two.more

EA spent tons of money on this 'kooky' 'viral' Madden trailer

I bet the people involved had a lot of fun shooting this offbeat Madden 15 commercial. It's also an obviously expensive production (beyond the celebrity costs) meant to be "weird" and, hopefully, shared (viral) over the Net....more
