Conspiracy! NBA Jam designer nerfed Bulls late game shots

Here's a brand new Hey Ash, Whatcha Playin'? that was revealed during PAX. It's about NBA Jam, and... ... Uhhh... know what? *wipes hands* I'm not touchin' this one. HAWP: NBA Jam [GameTrailers]


Preview: NBA JAM: On Fire Edition

I’m all for acrade-like sports games, but I only have vague memories of playing NBA Jam and I skipped last year’s franchise reboot. Getting my hands on NBA JAM: On Fire Edition at EA’s Summer Showcase was an interesting f...


New Destructoid Episode: NBAs, SDKs, and Project Cafes

Hey guys, we’re back with another embarrassing attempt at journalistic integrity with a very special Earth Day episode of The Destructoid Show. Where we uh... Save the whales or something. We discuss the week’s two big releases...


NBA Jam for iPad is on the App Store

My friend has an NBA Jam arcade machine in his garage, which is cool and all, but it smells in there. It smells like garage and gym equipment. It also gets really hot in the summer. Wouldn't you rather be in the pool, iPad in hand, looking ...

Review: NBA Jam (Wii)

With almost no desire to watch or participate in sports as a child, it was a dusty arcade machine in a low-rent video store that let me experience the rush of sinking my first three-pointer. The game was Midway’s basketball game, NBA ...


Obama, Palin, the Beastie Boys, and more in NBA Jam

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 alread...


NBA Jam on PS3 and 360 'trying to get it all in there'

This whole NBA Elite 11 debacle is certainly all over the place. Not only has it pretty much pointed towards EA not releasing a stalwart of their gaming line-up and losing a ton of money, but it's totally messed with NBA Jam on the PlayStat...


NBA Elite 11 delayed, standalone NBA Jam HD coming soon

In an unprecedented move, EA Sports has delayed indefinitely the release of NBA Elite 11, the reboot of its simulation basketball franchise formerly known as NBA Live. The game was originally scheduled to launch on October 5th, a week ...

A fiery basketball? Yep, this is NBA Jam box art

I hope you're sitting down, because we have the cover art for NBA Jam, courtesy of Twitter. This is the biggest story of the day, no question. My criteria -- "is there a basketball on fire?" -- has been met. You win this round, EA Sports. O...


German ratings board passes NBA Jam to 360, PS3

Electronic Arts is bringing back NBA Jam this holiday, and I've played it, and it's awesome. Have you played NBA Jam before? You know what you're getting yourself into. But there's been some people thumbing their noses at the fact that it's...


Tim Kitzrow might shout your catchphrase in NBA Jam

If you played NBA Jam back in the day, you have fond memories of the game's announcer, Tim Kitzrow. Spouting unforgettable lines like "he's on fire!" and "boomshakalaka," Kitzrow was a major factor in the game's brilliance, and I figu...


Larry Bird and Magic Johnson will be bosses in NBA Jam

NBA Jam is a revival of a classic game, so it stands to reason that the Wii-exclusive title will feature classic players. MTV Multiplayer confirmed this when they spoke to the game's creative director, Trey Smith, about the main gamepl...


The smile never left my face as I played the new NBA Jam

Growing up in the days of the Super Nintendo was a huge blessing for me. I love Nintendo' s second videogame console with all of my heart and still believe it to be one of the best systems ever made. Many cartridges went through my Super N...


NBA Jam debut trailer makes me giggle like a child

This is the first footage of EA Sports' Wii-exclusive (as far as we know, anyway) NBA Jam, and my goodness, is it glorious. Just as I hoped in my list of NBA Jam suggestions, developer EA Canada looks to be including a healthy dose of...


Rumor: NBA Jam coming to PS3, 360 as well as Wii (Update)

'He's heating up!' NBA Jam info and speculation

Is that a kick-ass logo, or what? This morning, EA confirmed earlier rumors of a revival of Midway’s arcade classic, NBA Jam, exclusively for the Wii. That last part -- that the game is only coming to the Wii -- seems to be tempering...
