An art update arrived today for NBA 2K15 that delivered new uniforms to the game. The “Pride” jerseys for the Celtics and Magic and a new alternate for the Cavs are included, but it’s the Christmas jerseys that will get most of the attention. Those have been added for the 10 teams that are set to play that day.
The main draw (or drawback in theÂ opinion of many) to this year’s Christmas jerseys is that they feature the player’s first name instead of their last name. However 2K15’s representation includes the last name and even the box framing the name is absent. The NBA logo is also too small. On the front of the jerseys the team logos are too small – they should be the same size or larger than the number below – and the adidas logo is missing.
It’s unclear why 2K Sports would release the jerseys in this state and they have yet to comment on whether a fix for them will be made.
Super Mega Baseball enters the marketplace without the support of a major publisher and with it the normal marketing push and fanfare those games get. It lacks the licensing, rich feature sets, and revenue-driven modes that have become the norm. The sports genre’s alternatives, games that acted as bridges to the highly-detailed and increasingly complicated sim offerings, have gone practically extinct in recent years.
Despite all that Super Mega has every right to be considered a legitimate release and in terms of fun factor and value arguably could stand toe-to-toe with those massive sports games. No you aren’t going to find the same level of content but in some ways that’s not a necessity for the product. It’s $20, not $60, and has a completely different directive to achieve. Simply to be fun, accessible to everyone, provide a nostalgic feeling, and to be an enjoyable local multiplayer experience. It succeeds in all those areas.Â Read more
Sony’s digital round of sales this week includes The Golf Club on PlayStation 4 for $20.99 (PS Plus subscribers) and $24.49 (Non-subscribers). It’s the first opportunity to get the game at a discount since releasing in August for $40. The deal is available through December 22.
The Golf Club has generated mostly positive reception from those who have bought it. The game has been well supported post-release with a new free update expected out in a matter of days that will add a Handicap system and another planned for springÂ that will deliver a Career mode.
