If you like baseball video games, chances are you’re doing one of two things right now.  You’re either heavily investing yourself in Sony’s dominating simulator MLB 12: The Show on PlayStation Vita or PS3, or you’re playing 2K Sports’ Major League Baseball 2K12, which actually fared pretty well considering how the series has been in a bit of a (pardon the pun) slide here.  But it looks like the competition may be whittled down, as 2K is considering letting its deal with MLB expire in 2013, though that wasn’t officially announced.

After a fiscal report that questioned the future of the Major League Baseball 2K franchise, we were wondering if 2K Sports had gotten a little soft, concerned about how they could compete with their main rival, EA Sports.  Well, we got our answer today with a nice tomahawk jam to the face, in the form of an announcement for NBA 2K13.

NBA 2K12 continues to run at a fever pitch in the second half of the shortened NBA season.  The Game of the Year edition is set to hit Best Buy store shelves next week, at a decent price of $49.99; and to help further celebrate the basketball season, Microsoft has added a new jersey to its Xbox Live Avatar line-up that New York Knicks fans in particular will take interest in.  Nope, it's not Carmelo Anthony.  It's Jeremy Lin!

For the past couple of years, 2K Sports has literally dominated the paint with its NBA 2K series, starting with teaming up with Michael Jordan for NBA 2K11 and eventually other legends in NBA 2K12.  But now, EA Sports, a company that’s been out of the simulation basketball game since it scuttled its NBA Elite 11 project, is about to hit the hard court once again with the recently announced NBA Live 13.  The real question is, does it stand a chance?

02.17.12

Well, it seems 2K Sports is very pro-active to what NBA 2K12 gamers want and they wanted a better Jeremy Lin to create Linsanity magic in their NBA 2K12 games with their virtual Lins.  Just two days after 2K Sports upgraded Lin to 69 from 56 in the NBA 2K12 "Living Rosters" update, they upgraded him again to 75 today in another update, which is closer to where Lin should probably be even after he cools down from his Linsane pace, which he inevitably will.

NBA 2K12 has been roaring up the basketball charts over the past few months, mainly due to the lack of a (direct) competitor.  But it's still one hell of a sim, and players everywhere have been dunking and raining three's, even if it's without New York Knicks superstar Jeremy Lin.  (But, yeah, we know you play as him sometime.  Admit it.)  Now the madness is set to continue next month, as Best Buy has announced a new edition that will be sold exclusively through them.

With Linsanity fever taken up another notch with Jeremy Lin's last second, tie-breaking three point shot heroics to beat the Toronto Raptors yesterday 90-87, NBA 2K12 has just come out with its latest "Living Roster" update and Lin has gone up from 56 to 69 in his NBA 2K12 ratings. While that's not bad for a kid that wasn't even on the radar six games ago let alone on the New York Knicks roster two months ago, many NBA 2K12 gamers are wondering, is the new rating too low?

02.14.12

Carmelo who?  A year or so ago, the New York Knicks thought that Carmelo Anthony would be the answer to their problems, making a big blockbuster trade to the Denver Nuggets in order to get him.  But since that time, they haven't really been able to really succeed, despite Melo trying to hustle to the hoop.  However, it's not that guy who's shining for the team right now, as he's currently out on injury (and possibly set to return this weekend).  No, the real star is a guy that was once cut by the Warriors and the Rockets, Justlin Lin.  Ever since he was added to the Knicks roster a little while back, he's been on fire.

Combinations are hard to resist.  Why else do you think we go to fast food restaurants and seek out a package that includes burgers, fries AND a drink?  It's because they offer something of value at a somewhat cheaper rate.  (We're still kicking ourselves for buying that Taco Bell Big Box -- too much food!)  But very rarely do you see a worthwhile combo in video games.  Well, 2K Sports is offering one anyway starting at the beginning of next month...

Up until about late last year, basketball fans were worried that the NBA lockout, which lasted about half a year, was going to doom the forthcoming season.  However, following a last second meeting, both sides eventually came to an agreement, and though we've got a shorter season than expected, NBA games have finally returned.  And 2K Sports is tributing the return of the players, coaches and everyone else with their own special video, comprised of clips from its hit basketball game NBA 2K12.

2011 brought a lot of sequels our way.  Some were necessary improvements to formula, while others had us scratching our heads wondering what was up.  (NOTE: Resistance 3.)  Anyway, we've decided to count down our top ten favorite retail games (a downloadable list is coming very soon), along with a few honorable mentions for good measure.  You might be shocked to see what takes number one.

The NBA season is rapidly approaching, as we're six days from its kick-off on Christmas day.  With that, 2K Sports has been pushing into overdrive to update its excellent sim NBA 2K12 with all the necessary changes and trades.  The company has informed us today that its latest roster update has gone live, and we've got all the changes right here for you.

It’s a little annoying to see sports games get downloadable content added on a couple of months after their release, mainly because folks already spent so much money for the main product and now have to plunk down a few extra bucks for some more good stuff.  But that’s how business rolls for other games these days, so it’s not a big deal.  Plus, when it’s as good as NBA 2K12’s new Legends Showcase, you really see where the value adds up.

2K Sports is running full speed on updates for NBA 2K12, in order to prep for the upcoming season, which kicks off in less than two weeks on Christmas day.  And to start things off, it's already uploaded its first roster update, which does feature the addition of a few rookies, as well as some noteable trades.  But not everything is perfect with it...

When developers put some effort into making an iPad game, some try to pull out all the stops and replicate the same kind of experience you’d get from a game console.  The Apple tablet is a respectable game machine, after all, especially if you’re playing something along the lines of Dead Space or the awesome Infinity Blade.  But sometimes you can try to pile on too much, and as a result, it mars the experience.  That’s exactly what happens with 2K Sports’ NBA 2K12.  The company shoots for a quality simulation, right up there with the console versions, but it comes up short in key areas.  It’s like the thrill of seeing someone go for a fast break and then miff the dunk at the end.
