NBA Jam: On Fire Edition Post-Launch Q&A

We recently had the opportunity to chat to NBA Jam: On Fire Edition producer Cody Sawatsky about this year’s game. We asked him about the reaction to On Fire Edition so far and his favourite addition, as well as a few questions about Road Trip, the Online Arena and Real AI. Cody also provided us with a few tips for success in NBA Jam: On Fire Edition and we’ve been provided with a few exclusive screens for the occasion. Read on to get the full scoop!

Please note that this Q&A was conducted closer to the release of the game last month but it’s been held up slightly due to a couple of questions we asked requiring clarification and approval before we could post it. Thanks again Cody for chatting with us and for community manager John C for setting everything up!

Andrew’s NBA Jam: On Fire Edition Review (Xbox 360)

Having spent almost two weeks playing NBA Jam: On Fire Edition and posting some preliminary impressions in the NLSC Forum, I’m ready to give my full review of the game. Being a fan of NBA Jam from back in the day, I was intrigued by the idea of Real AI from the very first time it was mentioned in previews, wondering just what impact it could have on the game. I was also keen to see what the game had to offer in terms of its new modes, Road Trip and the Online Arena. With enhanced gameplay, new game modes, more legends, more special teams and players and better online functionality, the question is: does NBA Jam: On Fire Edition live up to the hype?

The short answer…yes. The long answer…well, read on.

NBA Jam: On Fire Edition Video: Boom SHAQA Montage

NBA cancels first two weeks of regular season

Following the latest round of talks between the NBA player’s union and the owners, the league has officially cancelled the first two weeks of the 2011/2012 regular season. Despite meeting for more than seven hours, both sides reportedly remain “very far apart on virtually all issues”, which obviously does not bode well for a speedy resolution to the lockout. Have your say on the lockout and other topics concerning real basketball in the NBA & Basketball Talk section of the NLSC Forum.

As far as the lockout’s impact on virtual basketball, the current state of negotiations would suggest that an official patch to add rookies to NBA 2K12 and the planned roster updates for NBA Jam: On Fire Edition will not be happening anytime soon. Rookie data is present in NBA 2K12’s game files so it’s possible that we’ll be able to add this year’s rookie crop to the game and utilise faces, speech and so forth through our own unofficial updates. The feasibility and exact methods of doing this are still being explored at this time.

NBA Jam: On Fire Edition – Unlocking the Unlocks

There was a blog posted on Wednesday by the NBA Jam: On Fire Edition crew talking about how we will be unlocking everything in the game.

But how do I get all this awesome stuff? Lemme tell ya, it ain’t secret codes kid. 2 words: JAM Bucks… Every game you complete you’ll get some. You get them for completing JAM Challenges, picking up doubles, and literally dozens of other in-game actions. These are both XP and Cash. That means you earn them to level up, which will unlock stuff, and then use the same points to buy stuff from the JAM Store so you can use it in-game.

You can unlock over 40 legends, over 25 teams, privileges (filters, custom rules, different balls), and custom JAM Card titles, backgrounds, and icons.  Read the entire blog here and discuss it in the Forum here.
