With the NBA season opening tonight, what better time to look at the latest entry in the NBA 2K series, NBA 2K15. This is the 2nd current gen NBA 2K, and the first current gen build to make its way to the PC, where we are reviewing it today. Is it as great as 2K Sports claims it is, or are we looking at a regression year for the perennial champs?
For those who like their world organized and their time managed, we have set up a tentative streaming schedule for our Extra Life marathon. After taking the results of our game poll into consideration, we have organized a selection of 45+ games as best we saw fit. We’re fairly flexible – and things are liable to go awry at some point – but now you know when you can tune in to watch us play the games that you would like to see.
UPDATE: We have moved our stream from it’s original scheduled start at 8 AM October 25th to 8 PM October 24th. We are still going for 24 hours, we’re just starting earlier. This post has been edited to reflect that.
On October 24th we will be participating in the Extra Life marathon for children’s hospitals and Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. You can catch our live stream starting 8 PM Friday, October 24th on our Twitch.tv channel. As we did last year, we’re requesting input for what we should play, and you can cast your vote here .
NBA 2K15 is here, and with it the promise of a new, competitive mode called MyPARK. MyPARK takes your custom player you develop in MyCAREER mode and tosses them out onto the blacktop to play other players in 3-on-3 matches. At least, that’s the idea. In my experience so far, on PC at least, there’s room for improvement.
UPDATE: Stream delayed about half an hour due to technical issues
If you’re a morning person, or someone who has to be up early regardless and wants some entertainment, we’re here for you. Announcing our Twin Bill Tuesday live stream from AAGH, starring myself (Budaniel) and Floata (of Chaos is Gaming). Starting tomorrow you can catch us live on Twitch at 10 AM every Tuesday morning, playing two games over two hours.
I was never that big on Gauntlet back in the ’80s and early ’90s, being more of a Ninja Turtles/X-Men player in the arcades of my youth. My first serious encounter with Gauntlet was Gauntlet Legends for Nintendo 64, which I loved. Now, almost a decade and a half after wasting days with that N64 classic, Gauntlet is back for PC. The question is, is it as memorable and addictive as the series’ history would suggest, or should Gauntlet have stayed just a good memory?
When I started playing The Sims 4, I wasn’t expecting to be impressed. The playable areas were condensed from The Sims 3 from an open world to your house and its surrounding neighborhood, the emotions that EA touted as a big feature seemed like rebranded moodlets from The Sims 3, and the graphics didn’t look like any major step forward. Is The Sims 4 better than the sum of its parts, or is this the fall of a franchise?
Today could be the day of a significant shift for the gaming landscape as Microsoft has agreed to buy Mojang and therefore its landmark title, Minecraft for $2.5 billion. Let’s look at what it means for Minecraft’s immediate and long-term prospects, and why it happened.
