NBA Jam for Android Review

Having recently upgraded to a Samsung Galaxy S-II, I decided to pick up the Android version of NBA Jam, which was released back in March. After playing a few exhibition and Campaign mode games, I thought I’d share a quick review for anyone else who may be considering picking it up for their Android device.

Being a fan of the original NBA Jam series, as well as the 2010 reboot and last year’s On Fire Edition, I anticipated that the mobile version would be a solid, enjoyable incarnation of the classic arcade basketball game, something that would be fun to play on-the-go. Just how good is it, and how does it stack up to its console brethren? Read on to find out!

EA Sports Resurrects NBA Live 13 (GamerLiveTV)

Here’s another interview with NBA Live 13 executive producer Nick Wlodyka that we overlooked back in June, conducted by GamerLiveTV at E3 2012. Once again, a lot of the information in the video is stuff that we already know, however it does make mention of signature animations (including jumpshots, leaners, fadeaways and dunks), as well as signature emotions (such as LeBron puffing out his cheeks when driving to the basket).

Check it out below for a concise summary of everything that’s been revealed about NBA Live 13 so far, or watch it here over on YouTube if you can’t see the embedded video. Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments below and jump into the discussion in the NBA Live 13 section of the NLSC Forum. Thanks to our own Arcane for the heads up!

NBA Live 13 Interview (Gamechurch.com)

Here is an interview that Gamechurch.com conducted with NBA Live 13 producer Nick Wlodyka back at E3 2012, which we somehow missed posting back in June. The interview provides a good rundown of the info we know so far from their approach to the game, their main goals with NBA Live 13 and the sharing of ANT animation technology with the NHL and FIFA series.

It also reveals a couple of interesting tidbits that haven’t been talked about much, including updates to player faces throughout the season, the inclusion of different body models and wingspans and hot and cold streaks based on both real NBA data and the user’s experience. It’s a solid interview and definitely worth checking out, so watch it below or here over on YouTube if you can’t see the embedded video. As always, we invite you to leave a comment below with your thoughts, as well as take part in the latest discussion that’s going on in the NBA Live 13 section of the NLSC Forum.

Countdown to NBA Live 13 & NBA 2K13

NLSC Logo - Stitching

It’s just over a couple of months until the release of NBA Live 13 and NBA 2K13, so we’re starting our countdown game in the NLSC Forum! For those who are unfamiliar with it, the game involves posting pictures of players wearing the jersey number that corresponds to the number of days left until the games are released. Since quite a few jersey numbers above #55 have not been worn by any NBA players, creativity is encouraged!

We’ve got a countdown thread for each game this year, so if you miss out on posting your favourite player in one countdown you’ve got a chance to post them in the other one.

Join in the fun today and be a part of the latest discussion in the NBA Live 13 and NBA 2K13 sections of the Forum!
