NBA 2K: Jerk Kobe, teammates smacking each other, and the best dance moves

NBA 2K16's been out for a while now and since both baseball season and football season are already over and there's nothing to watch, here is a collection of things people have shared from NBA 2K16 that have amused me over the past two week...

NBA 2K16's main character is named Frequency Vibrations

Robert Summa just covered the news that Spike Lee (Do the Right Thing) is directing the campaign mode in the upcoming NBA 2K16. As some commenters pointed out, though, his story lacked a key fact that, really, deserves its own article. Lee'...

Latest NBA 2K16 news is everything that is wrong with the NBA 2K series

The 2K sports franchises used to have a stellar reputation. NFL 2K and NBA 2K long-served as safe havens from the inconsistency and frustration that EA's counterparts offered. While NFL 2K was put aside due to licensing deals, NBA 2K has be...

These are the nominees for Spike's VGX awards

I wasn't so sure about the Spike VGAs being rebranded as VGX, but then I came to my senses and realized such things really don't matter. Some of you will argue that the show's awards don't matter, either. At any rate, this stuff is not goin...

Spike VGAs renamed 'VGX', happening December 7

The annual Spike Video Game Awards are set to take place this year, but they're undergoing a bit of a facelift. Instead of the moniker "VGAs" that we've known the awards show as for years, it's being rebranded as "VGX" this time 'round. The...

999 on iOS lacks any actual gameplay

999: Nine Hours, Nine Persons, Nine Doors was without question my favorite game of 2010. The sequel, Virtue's Last Reward, was pretty great as well, but the original was simply without equal. I recommend it to anyone I can, holding it as an...

Conception: Please Have My Baby sequel has waifus aplenty

Despite Spike Chunsoft showing some interest in bringing Conception 2 to western shores, it seems doubtful this Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita game will ever manage to escape from Japan. A bizarre dungeon crawler with a conceit...

Remember Conception? Yeah, that PSP dungeon crawler where the protagonist must save the world by having magical children with a dozen celestial maidens. Well, it's getting a sequel and publisher Spike Chunsoft seems keen on b...   read

Aksys selling VLR watches for Hurricane Sandy relief

It seemed like a good idea at the time: Take the popular Dragon Ball Z fighting games and put them in first person perspective with Kinect controls, allowing players to punch, kick, and Kamehameha their way through the series' popular battles, allowing players to be immersed in the Dragon Ball world like never before. Wait... Kinect? No, I was wrong. That doesn't seem like a good idea at all.   read
