  • NBA Live 16 E3 Trailer; Gameplay Details and Release Date Set
    Posted June 15th, 2015 at 1:45 pm 18 Comments »
    EA Sports today rolled out the debut trailer for NBA Live 16. Included is the official release date of September 29. That matches the NBA 2K16 release date, somewhat at least, considering 2K16 truly releases on the 25th. On Xbox One anyway Live will beat it by a few hours for anyone who has EA Access. (more…)...
  • NBA Live 16 Announced: Russell Westbrook on Cover, Some Features Teased
    Posted June 9th, 2015 at 11:30 am 56 Comments »
    EA Sports today made NBA Live 16 official by announcing Russell Westbrook as the cover athlete. Considering how poor sales have been for Live 14 and Live 15 there has been legitimate concern that the series would be cancelled. The former was a disaster and the latter provided some stability but failed to do anything more. The series is getting at least one more go at it and it'll need to show considerable growth to justify it continuing beyond this year.  (more…)...
  • The Situation with College Sports Video Games Examined
    Posted June 9th, 2015 at 9:45 am 15 Comments »
    Though the developments related to college-based video games have been covered extensively here over the years, the reasoning for their disappearance and the potential of their return remain the most inquired about subject from readers. It's difficult to summarize everything that led to their downfall or the chances of another being made without going through the entire history behind it all and how we got to where we are now. With that in mind, one of the launch articles I put together a...
  • The NBA 2K15 Finals Sim Was Eerily Close to Having an Identical Game One Ending
    Posted June 5th, 2015 at 9:45 am 2 Comments »
    Earlier this week I posted a comprehensive simulation of the NBA Finals with NBA 2K15 at Hit the Pass. It included game summaries with highlight clips, stats, and analysis. When publishers complete and hype their own simulations they typically just hit a button and provide the result. Actually watching the games leads to the emergence of storylines and the ability to identify drama that takes place within them. As Game One played out last night - the Warriors outlasting the Cavaliers i...
  • Spike Lee’s NBA 2K16 MyCareer Mode is More Story-Focused and Less About You
    Posted June 4th, 2015 at 8:30 am 33 Comments »
    We've known about Spike Lee's involvement with NBA 2K16 since April but today 2K Sports finally confirmed his presence with the game and explained the role he's had in shaping the popular story mode first introduced in 2K14. Lee has written and directed the mode for NBA 2K16 and it appears it'll no longer feature your created MyPlayer, at the very least in name. Instead the story focuses on a player named Frequency Vibrations - and no that's not a joke - whose "personal exploits off the c...
  • Detailed Breakdown of the 2015 NBA Finals as Simulated by NBA 2K15
    Posted June 3rd, 2015 at 12:15 pm 3 Comments »
    After a week's wait for the 2015 NBA Finals to begin, they'll finally tip-off tomorrow night. The Golden State Warriors take on the Cleveland Cavaliers in a series heavily favored to go the Warriors' way. Over at Hit The Pass, the new website headed by myself and Rich Grisham that launched today, is a run-through of the entire series as simulated in NBA 2K15. Every single minute of every game was watched and noted and then highlights were pulled along with statistics and analysis. Roster...
