What We Learned About NBA Live 18 At EA PlayAfter a year-plus hiatus, EA showed off the return of the NBA Live franchise. This basketball series, which has been riddled with poor releases on the current and past generation of consoles, showed off a little bit of gameplay and a new mode called “The One” at this year’s E3. So what do we know about the game so far? The answer: not much. What we do know is that NBA Live seems to be going to great lengths to separate itself from its competitor. The...

Gaming News NASCAR '15 Review (360/PS3)
NASCAR '15 Review (360/PS3)
For a game representing one of the more popular sports in North America, the release of NASCAR 15 has been relatively quiet. NASCAR used to command the same attention as other annual racing games and sports titles. This year, the Gamestop where I purchased my copy had only received two copies for each platform. Worse, the game comes with a large share of the usual warning signs: last-gen only, later than usual release date, exclusive retailer, budget price, etc. The biggest issue, however with NASCAR 15, is that it's really just a rescind NASCAR 14.

MLB 15 The Show: Diamond Dynasty Ratings Boost Predictions (5/24/15)
We may or may not get a roster update tomorrow as it's Memorial Day weekend in the States. But whether the update comes Monday or Tuesday, it's time to predict who may be on the rise in the next roster update. I'll be breaking the predictions into tiers based on my own confidence level.
Ratings Boost Probability: HighJason Kipnis - He got a plus-one boost last week, but he's done nothing but continue to hit. Ryan Braun - He was stripped of Gold status earlier in the year, but not many players have hit the ball better than Braun the past month. Kris Bryant - Bryant got a plus-two boost last week, but I still feel confident projecting him to get another upgrade. Prince Fielder - Fielder is back and healthy and he's been annihilating the ball as of late. Brandon Crawford - This is probably a little overdue as Crawford is hitting .350 the last month. Dexter Fowler - Fowler just has a good mix of power and speed going this year. Brandon Belt - Belt is crushing the ball in May, and it seems maybe he's putting it together. Shelby Miller - Miller had the near no-hitter and has just been really good. Based on his price in the marketplace, most others think he's getting a boost as well. A.J. Burnett - Burnett is another one people in the marketplace are already expecting to get a ratings boost. It's fair at this point, his numbers are silly. Jason Hammel - Hammel has just been really good this year, and even better over the past month. Mike Bolsinger - Bolsinger is rolling. He's 27 and not a hot-shot prospect, but I would still be a little surprised if he doesn't get a boost. James Paxton - Paxton is having just a solid year. This is maybe the one I feel least confident about in...

Jeremy Lin Not Loving His End of Year NBA 2K15 Ratings
A lot of 2K fans out there were probably just happy to get everybody back and healthy in the end-of-year NBA 2K15 roster update, but Jeremy Lin is not too psyched his ratings dipped from 78 at the start of the season to a 75 overall at the end of the year. "This game is rigged," said Jeremy Lin in the accompanying YouTube video on his friend AJ Rafael's YouTube channel. Once he got past looking at the grades and looked at the ratings by the numbers, he softened his stance a bit. Still, Jeremy Lin was left in shock when his Strength rating was revealed to be a 35. After showing the camera his bicep, he recovered long enough to be in agreement with his high quickness and speed ratings. But at the end of the day, it's another athlete not in love with his video game ratings. Lin's scoring efficiency did dip a bit this season, but between Byron Scott shying away from three-pointers and the Lakers not having the same type of floor spacing as the Rockets, that's not a real surprise. His defense continued to be underrated, and overall while some will call his season in LA a disappointment, I think Lin showed he will have no problem continuing to be a solid contributor in the NBA. In the meantime, he's put his fans to work by telling them to tell the NBA 2K development team to boost his ratings. ChaseB http://www.operationsports.com/newspost.php?id=843140
Programmer KingJavo has uploaded an early, incomplete version of his homemade PC editor, which allows gamers to alter all the teams and players on the Xbox 360 edition of All-Pro Football 2K8 in more ways than ever before. Version 0.1.3.0 of the editor, which can be downloaded for free from Mediafire, will only work on Windows computers. KingJavo's latest software offers several improvements over All-Pro Football 2K8's previous PC editing program, which was released in April of 2011, and was coded by fellow Operation Sports community member, FlyingFinn. Here are some of the new features:
- Can change any player name or team name in the game
- Can switch any player's announced play-by-play name
- Can place any of the retired legends' faces onto other players
- Can choose every player's attended college
- Can select any signature player animation, such as Deacon Jones' head slap, Walter Payton's high step, Lester Hayes' low defensive stance, or Dan Marino's throwing/playaction motions
- Adds hidden "Bullet Time" and "Helmet High Tackles" player abilities
- Can swap out any of the 24 CPU-controlled teams and make them one of the 8 user-controlled teams (or vice versa)
- Improved roster sorter that shows a separate page for each team
- Can change a team's home stadium without having to reset their roster of generic players
