Take Two and WWE Finalize Publishing Deal, New Talent To Oversee Future WWE Games

Take Two and the WWE have officially finalized their deal which will see all future WWE games published under the 2K Sports banner for the next five years.  As reported last week, the deal reached between Take Two and the WWE will not only see core developers from THQ return to the project, but the team at Yuke’s as well.  Such news led wrestling fans into a tale-spin of depression that would only be rivaled by John Cena being the WWE champ again for thr

Is 2K Sports Developing A New Arcade/Xtreme Sports Game?

I’m not too fond of video games based on sports, but I always find myself playing a few titles like EA’s FIFA offerings and stuff like the slightly underrated American football game Backbreaker.  My main calling in the world of sports video games has always been with either arcade centric sports or those in the “extreme” sports genre like skateboarding titles.  The only problem with my chosen appreciation of arcade and extreme sports video games is that there aren’t a lot left these days as franchises such as NBA Street and even Skate have been put to pasture.

NBA 2K11 [Review]

Overall Feeling: 

NBA 2K11 is basically the best basketball game to be released in the past 10 years. The game boasts incredible production values, amazing gameplay and one of the best modes ever in the form of the Jordan Challenge mode. Lots of the lingering issues from past NBA 2K games have been cleared up and few issues that are present in the game are minor. With an accurate depiction of the NBA, its players and the sport of basketball, NBA 2K11 is the crowned Champion of basketball video games.

The Pros: 

The gameplay is just stunning, even if it takes a while to get used to. The feeling the game gives from an aural and visual perspective is just unparalleled. NBA fans should be satisfied with the deep Association Mode and the soon to be legendary Michael Jordan mode. The options for online play are good and the stability is terrific. Even when it’s on Easy mode the game still puts up a nice challenge.

The Cons: 

Passing can be a bit hit and miss sometimes. The Dunk Challenge mode left a bit to be desired. Starting out as an upstart in the My Player mode may be a bit too tough for folks. A few small glitches/issues are still present. Ref calls can be a bit odd at times. Rating : 

Seeing someone travel from both ends on the wood tiles of a NBA court is almost like poetry in motion. While NBA players like LeBron James or past legends like Karl Malone and Michael Jordan weren’t spitting out poetic verses like Robert Frost, they were showing us their true selves with how they played on the court.

NBA 2K11 looks to give gamers the ultimate NBA experience [Preview]

With the recent news of EA delaying NBA Elite 11, which was to be a reboot of the series, basketball gamers may be looking at what possible options are available to them.  Well there are only three options really: 1. Wait for NBA Elite 11 and hope that EA fixes the issues 2. Go out on a limb and buy NBA Jam, which is far from a sim basketball experience or 3. Try out NBA 2K11, a game which just so happens to include this little known player named Michael Jordan.  I think with the void of NBA Elite 11, a lot of gamers are going to go with option 3, and rightfully so.
