The first NBA JAM Wii screenshot?

Looks to capture the feel of NBA JAM but in 3D. Hype +1.

Don't pussy out, EA, with unlockables and shit. All the crazy stuff needs to be accessed through cheat codes.

Yay, NBA Jam, by new (and pretty good) people! I have faith.

It'd be funny if they include people from SSX, like Zoe and Kaori... Especially since they're probably not going to give us another one. :(

Umm...where'd you get that from? Only amazingly it looks similar to...


/Edit. Ahh, Edge's website. Ha.
Hence the question mark. Wasn't sure but looked like a Wii game.

Logo gives me hope, as does the three players from each team (as long as on-court gameplay is two-on-two).

I was excited until until I heard it was for the Wii. :( Oh well I'll but it anyways. But they lost great opportunity for some awesome sounding achievements. :((

Should I assume that licensing issues will prevent retired players from appearing in the game?

I remember writing a letter to Charles Barkley about him fucking up a free-throw when I was playing this once. An actual letter to him because he messed up the free-throw. It wasn't a game losing throw, and it wasn't a particularly important moment... but we wrote a letter and mailed it off to his estate. Oh to be 19 again (21 now).

Also, Sonic Youth return or bust.

That was kinda amusing, and I could easily believe that a little kid of about 8 or 9 doing it... then you mentioned that you were 19 at the time. :(

Hey GAF! Jam is the cover story in our upcoming issue of Nintendo Power, which subscribers should start receiving any day now. I think everyone will be pleased with how the game is shaping up. In the meantime, you can check out our Howard-tastic cover on the website.

I don't get this...so basically EA dumps their NBA Street games and tries to revive NBA Jam?

As others have mentioned though, NBA Street Vol. 2 was a very fun game...good times.

=/

Yeah, it's gone now.

Either that was a placeholder because of an NDA from EA, or this game involves digitized photos of heads floating on 3D bodies. :lol

You gotta admit that'd be pretty fuckin hilarious. They take images of every NBA player's face, digitize them for as many different reactions as possible, and use it in game when appropriate.

Something interesting I found in the ESPN article: http://sports.espn.go.com/videogames/news/story?id=4795625

Did Scottie Pippen's ratings really drop when he played certain teams or was I just the least clutch shooter every time I played Detroit? "It's true, but only when the Bulls played the Pistons," explained Turmell. "If there was a close game and anyone on the Bulls took a last-second shot, we wrote special code in the game so that they would average out to be bricks. There was the big competition back in the day between the Pistons and the Bulls, and since I was always a big Pistons fan, that was my opportunity to level the playing field.

Hey, I see Sin & Punishment 2. North Americas rejoice.
Well, they have to announce its cancellation somehow.

Looking forward to the Glory of Heracles review myself to see if I need to cancel that and reorder Sands of Destruction.

Dwight Howard. This pleases me.

If he isn't the best player in the game I will rage. His playstyle is absolutely BUILT for this game.
