NBA Jam: On Fire Edition Sixth Best XBLA Game of 2011 (Planet Xbox 360)

Planet Xbox 360’s Robert Workman has posted his Top 20 Xbox Live Arcade games for 2011, with NBA Jam: On Fire Edition coming in at sixth. Of the game, he said:

I will be honest, I loved NBA Jam when it came out last year. But On Fire Edition addresses many of the criticisms of that game, with a lower price point, improved gameplay mechanics, more features and online play. Plus, Honey Badgers and Isaac from Dead Space make appearances. Gotta love that.

Check out the complete Top 20 here. You can pick up NBA Jam: On Fire Edition for 1200 Microsoft Points on Xbox Live or for $15 on the PlayStation Network.

Sixth Official NBA 2K12 Roster Update Released

The sixth official roster update for NBA 2K12 is now available and should be downloaded automatically so long as your PC, Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 is connected to the Internet. The new update contains the latest cuts, trades, and free agent and rookie signings through December 19th, with the exception of a couple of players who are returning after more than a year away from the league. According to Ronnie 2K, those players will be added in time along with new art files.

Remember to use the Reset Roster function in the Options menu to load the new rosters; as I’ve mentioned before, I’ve had to reset the rosters twice to get the new ones to show up and I highly recommend saving the rosters after they’ve loaded. See below for an updated list of transactions included in the latest roster and if you’re playing on PC, make sure you also downloaded JaoSming’s Rookie Arm Fix to correct problems with the rookies’ arm textures.

NBA Today Will Have 66 Game Season In NBA 2K12

Ronnie 2K has posted a couple of Tweets here and here answering questions about the 66 game schedule being patched into NBA 2K12. Ronnie has confirmed that NBA Today will reflect the lockout shortened 66 game schedule, while mentioning that it is impossible to implement for My Player, Association and Online Association. NBA Today games are currently following the original 2011/2012 season schedule.

For what it’s worth, EA Sports patched the abbreviated 50 game schedule for the lockout shortened 1998/1999 season into NBA Live 99’s Season Mode, which led to speculation that 2K Sports might be able to do the same with NBA 2K12. It is understandable that they cannot, however; beyond any technical limitations there’s also the tricky situation with multiseason play in Association and My Player, which would need to revert to 82 games from year two onwards. Selecting the 50 game schedule in NBA Live 99’s basic multiseason mode – the precursor of Franchise and Dynasty Mode – locked the user to playing 50 games for each of the ten years. Such a situation would likely be unappealing to most NBA 2K12 players, ultimately detracting from the realism in the long run.

Fourth Official NBA 2K12 Roster Update Released

The official roster updates for NBA 2K12 continue to come daily in the lead up to the 2011/2012 season, which is set to tip off just a little over a week away on Christmas Day. The latest update includes the blockbuster trade that sent Chris Paul to the Clippers and a few more rookies, though Richard Hamilton is still a free agent rather than being on the Bulls’ roster. Gilbert Arenas is back in the free agent pool after appearing on the Magic’s roster in the last update.

Please see below for an updated list of transactions and included rookies through the latest update. Remember that you may have to use the Reset Roster function under the Options menu to access the updated rosters. In my experience, I’ve usually had to reset the rosters twice to get the new rosters to show up. I would also recommend saving the new rosters once they’ve loaded.
