    With EA Sports taking some time away from the NBA Live series on consoles in its place this year is NBA Live Mobile. The game first released in February with a Canadian soft launch. Reception from players was generally very positive and my review expressed a similar sentiment towards the free-to-play game based off the Ultimate Team model. A recent update however changed the way lineups are handled angering those who had invested in playing beforehand. A lot of time and possibly money ...

    Did you think the 73-9 Golden State Warriors were a powerhouse in NBA 2K16? Well, prepare yourself for 2K17, as Kevin Durant is coming to make them even more unstoppable and basically the only team you'll ever see used online. The Warriors now have four All-Stars in Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green. The last three MVPs reside on the team (Curry and Durant). The closest thing to what has been formed with the Warriors would probably be the 2003-04 Los Angeles...

    When it initially launched I called NBA Live Mobile the best thing NBA Live since 2009 and gave it a positive review on Sporting News. Many agreed considering the game had fantastic user-scores. It was averaging well over 4 stars on iOS and sat at an impressive 4.6 on Android. That's all changed with a recent update that was made to the game that has resulted in a wave of 1 star reviews rolling in instead. The current updated version has a horrendous average rating of 2 stars on iTunes....

    Even without a basketball competitor on the market, and an array of other sports games releasing from the end of August through September, the NBA 2K series continues to push its release date forward and put distance between itself and the start of the actual season - the opposite of what every other sports gaming franchise has done in recent years. Just two years ago the standard for NBA games as mandated by the licensing agreement was to go out on the first Tuesday in October, and now ...

    In April it was announced that the special "Legend Edition" of NBA 2K17 would celebrate the career of Kobe Bryant. The standard edition of the game however will feature a current player - Paul George of the Indiana Pacers. It's no surprise that George was the choice considering his relationship with 2K Sports. George most recently fronted the NBA 2K16 mobile app and appeared in the special edition Kobe commerical. With the number of premier players essentially eliminated from contention (...
