2k what if

NBA 2K15 asks you “What If?”

[y=A5AQ2RrCpuw height=400]

What if is the question posed to all of us basketball lovers in this latest NBA2K15 trailer. A question posted by the “Big Aristotle” himself, one that has been asked over and over in the roundball world. All these questions culminate in the reveal of the newest iteration of their “MyTeam” mode. Fantasy basketball at it’s finest.

With the game coming out less than a month away we can’t wait to see what is coming up for the annual hit. Take a look at the trailer and let us know what you think in the comments below.

fatal frame

Fatal Frame Still Exists. Looks Ghosty.

[y=EFVUNND1Z4E height=400]

Prepare your pants-catalog for multiple poo traumas! Well, if you own a Wii U so, like, two of you.

When the first Fatal Frame came out on PS2, it was entrancing to me. There had never been a game that actually scared me, but being placed into the role of a young woman who was beset upon by evil spirits really put me on edge. I hope this can continue the tradition.

Coming out September 27th in Japan. No known release date for the US, sadly. I would ALMOST buy a Wii U to play a new Fatal Frame game.

He and Cicero reminisce about their college glory days and their all out Tecmo Bowl battles.  Kahlief gets introduced to Madden heartache in the form of the first Battle for Brookago! Listen as he sheds a tear remembering how a last second effort to gain more yards instead of holding the ball to force overtime turned into the a nightmare inducing pick six for the loss. After much deliberation and aggravation we decide to give you our thoughts on #GAMERGATE. (Discussion starts around the 1hr 20 mark) Plus much, much more…

inFAMOUS First Light Review

[y=tLCS7frSvZY height=400]

inFAMOUS First Light gets us back into the city of Seattle, this time with the hyper-colorful Fetch. It’s fantastic to learn her origins, but will this second dose of neon be enough to light our hearts? Watch the video for the full review.

+Beautiful and vibrant art design

+Great to see Fetch’s backstory

+Game controls wonderfully

-Some missions fall flat

-The city feels unimportant

-Challenge modes get repetitive

New NBA 2K15 Gameplay Trailer

NBA-2K15-HD-Wallpapers

It looks as if the folks over at 2K Sports have done it again with an amazingly gorgeous trailer.

[y=r_cRqUP9jiU height=400]

Some quick things to notice:

  • Fidelity looks like it’s taken a significant bump up
  • Player faces had been improved
  • Atmosphere in pre-game looks awesome with more variety
  • In-between animations have been given some more love as well.

It looks like the 2K crew isn’t resting on it’s laurels on this one. Tell us what you thought of the trailer below.

Spawn On Me Episode 27: The Tech Jacket Koalition

 

The artists responsible for the amazingly good Image comic book, Tech Jacket, Khary Randolph and Emilio Lopez come to visit Brookago this week. We decided that just wasn’t enough, so we added the fiery writer from the Koalition.com, Tony Polanco. We talk about how Emilio & Khary got started in the comics industry, what they were working on before that and what the future holds. We talk EA madness and N4G foolishness. Tony goes OFF and we even have a visit from Morgan Freeman? Plus much more!
