An NBA Jam without hidden characters? Nonsense! The Wii version of NBA Jam, which hits stores today, continues the tradition Midway started back in 90s, with a number of familiar faces.

I've been playing the game for review, and I've already found three unlockable characters -- MCA, Mike D, and Ad Rock of the Beastie Boys, who are playable as part of the NY Knicks. But ESPN has gotten the scoop on some political unlockables including: President Obama, Joe Biden, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Al Gore, George W. Bush, Sarah Palin, John McCain, and Dick Cheney.

Characters can be unlocked by entering certain initials into the game before selecting your team, or entering a secret code at the game's title screen. Want to know how to unlock the Beastie Boys? Follow the jump for what I guess you can consider a minor spoiler. (ESPN couldn't get the details on how to unlock the Democrats and Republicans; let us know if you find out.)

NBA Jam is out in stores today; we'll have our full review up later today.

Unlock the Beastie Boys:

On the game's title screen, input the following code on your Wii Remote. You'll hear a sound to know that it worked. When you go to select a team, press the "+" button for "More Teams."

I haven't sat down to willingly play a sports game since me and my brother found NHL Face Off '98 on a demo disk during one VERY boring summer vacation. But every time I read one of Jon Bois' amazing Breaking Madden articles ...more

NHL 15 predicts entire hockey season, probably gets it horribly wrong

EA Sports used NHL 15 to simulate and predict the upcoming NHL season which begins next week. The results are most likely terribly wrong because nowhere does it anticipate that the Colorado Avalanche will be crowned Sta...more

Turn-around jumpers, one-handed dunks, pull up treys -- this new NBA 2K15 trailer has it all for anyone that cares about defense as much as James Harden does. All that silky smooth rock-handling is even easier to digest...more
