    With fewer sports games than ever before there's an opening for independent developers to have success with creative unlicensed takes on different sports. Dangerous Golf is the latest to enter that space and it comes from the creators of the Burnout series, and borrows the concept behind its popular Crash Mode. Replacing cars with golf balls and hitting into destructive environments sounds like a recipe for success but unfortunately the fun wears off quickly. Whether it's frustrating te...

    While basketball fans may be excited that NBA 2K17 will be out earlier than ever before with its move up to mid-September, it only further compresses the window where the majority of the sports games for the year are released. Within a four week span, six major sports games will go out, and there may be even others still yet to be announced.

    While there are unfortunately no new Flashback cards being introduced this week, the latest limited-time Diamond Dynasty card pack in MLB The Show 16 includes six players - three of which come from a pool comprised of the best performers from the month of May.

    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 ...
