  • NBA 2K19 patch addresses steals, rules, and much more
    Posted October 12th, 2018 at 2:45 pm No Comments »
    The second post-release patch of substance for NBA 2K19 went live today. While the previous one was primarily just to make critical fixes, this update reduces the success rate for steals (widely seen as problematic since release), implements the new shot clock reset rule for this season, updates of jumbotrons for two teams, and provides a number of other improvements in addition to more fixes across the various modes in the game.  (more…)...
  • Madden NFL 19 roster update details following week five of the season
    Posted October 11th, 2018 at 4:30 pm No Comments »
    The roster update for Madden NFL 19 featuring ratings changes based on regular season performance through five weeks has gone live to download all systems. After breaking the all-time passing yards record Drew Brees has been boosted all the way up to a 99 Overall.

Other notables on the move this week include Von Miller (-1 to 98), DeAndre Hopkins (+1 to 96), Tra...

    Fight Night Champion was added to the list of backwards compatible titles on Xbox One back in May. At the time it was unclear when, or even if, FNC would find itself available in the EA Access Vault for subscribers. While Skate 3 had done just that being moved into the Vault after several months had passed following its introduction to backwards compatibility, NBA Jam: On Fire Edition has never made its way to the subscription service making it seem that licensing may have led to complicatio...
  • New patch for NBA Live 19 adds features and addresses other consumer feedback
    Posted October 9th, 2018 at 3:00 pm No Comments »
    Already having been (temporarily) found at a massive discount, NBA Live 19 can now also offer a series of improvements to the game that have some real substance behind them. While they won't help Live 19 become more of an NBA game, the update does fill in some of the gaps otherwise with the addition of player editing for Franchise Mode, the ability to practice on your created court with your created player, new signature animations for a number of players, and considerable tuning having been...
