The Voice of NBA Jam

http://multiplayerblog.mtv.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/02/nba-jam.jpg

Jamescobo: Yes, I shelled out for the PS3 version; nothing against the Wii but if you have an arcade stick, you fuckin' play it on the system you have the stick for. And really, it's everything you could want in a modern NBA Jam game: more players, more crazy characters, more dunks, more everything. Also online, but really who the fuck wants to play NBA Jam against people without them sitting right next to you, ideally while bragging about how much more fun you're having with the arcade stick vs. them on the gamepad? Sure, there's plenty of fat on this particular sacred cow - hence its relatively low position on my ballot - but at the end of the day, come on!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7bUm4_dyiI4

Mayor Jingleberries: Can we talk about how its some bullshit that this game was supposed to be like $15 DLC but once NBA Elite got flushed down the shitter it turned into a $50 release?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-EVdh90QaI4

Can you name all the players from the 1993 Arcade Edition?

ZS: Can't buy a bucket! For two! Grabs the rebound! He's heating up! He's on fire! Head fake! Hello! Is it the shoes? It's a turnover! Jams it in! Oh my! Puts up a brick! Rejected! Swish! The nail in the coffin! Boom Shaka Laka! = my personal favorite!

http://www.thetanooki.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/07/NBA-Jam-Screen.png

Forksclovetofu: Malone and Stockton was essentially unbeatable if Stockton got the rebound.

In addition, his entire dorsolateral prefrontal cortex is devoted to remembering the time he did a helicopter dunk from half-court with Shawn Kemp at the buzzer to beat the Charlotte Hornets 82-81 in NBA Jam: Tournament Edition.

I'm glad I didn't vote for Alpha Protocol in the end. I've fought the same boss about 40-50 times. I'm playing on normal difficulty but apparently because I did Moscow before the other places he is unreasonably hard and my options are to fight him another 40-50 times hoping I kill him or starting over.

#102: Qrank – iPhone/Facebook – 7 pts – 1 vote

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zm_mkDz2seE

jamescobo: I makes mah money doing social media marketing (i.e. Facebooking it up for corporate clients), so admittedly part of my infatuation with Qrank (pronounced "Crank", not "Cue-Rank" as I stupidly called it for like five straight months) stems from constantly talking about it as a bandwagon clients need to be hopping on board with both feet. Still, as an object of game design, it's pretty much the perfect example of how an iOS trivia game (or really even a mobile trivia game all-in) should work: the questions are always both new and pertinent (I still give props to the question-writers for throwing one in about Kevin Costner's Gulf-cleaning doohickey literally the day after the news broke), the power-ups are helpful without being game-breaking and the location-based applications are a stroke of genius. I actually made sure my flights home for Christmas break went into as many airports as possible just so I could pick up badges for playing in those states. It’s always fun to brag about adopting early enough to actually unlock the badge for being top-10 in the world one day... now that there's an actual userbase, I doubt that’s ever gonna happen again though.

if: While there was decent humour in Half Minute Hero’s retro-parody style, the surprise was that it actually succeeded in being an excellent 8-bit RPG (or rather 50 8-bit RPGs) with all of the boring bits taken out.

Craig G: I bought this when I had finished with all the Fallout 3 I could handle but still had a post-apocalyptic yearning, hoping that this would fill a void while I waited for the next Fallout. Despite it's shortcomings (and there are a lot; serious texture problems, weirdly Irish/American Russian accents, infuriating 'tap a button to do something', all the NPCs shouting in unison with the jibber jabber when you walk through a crowd, too many Quick Time Events), I still really enjoyed this game. The story is well told in bite size chunks around short 'missions', and kept me on the hook. A nice post-apocalyptic nine hour distraction.

Matt D: Underworld melodramatic soap opera and karaoke simulator. It's an old-fashioned action-RPG, sending you wandering around its massive world searching for some arbitrary trigger to advance the story with depressing regularity but the environment is so fantastically well rendered that you walk away from the story at any time and find something to do, and it's charm / presentation is more than enough to overcome its deliberate anachronisms. The NA version apparently has a pile of cut content and I'm hoping for more localized development in #4.

Just going to rep for Lego Harry Potter for a minute (I gave it its other vote and, like Euler's, it was really a vote on behalf of our junior household gamer).

The original lego star wars was pretty solid in 2005, and this is what, the fifth or sixth iteration now? So it's a) great that TT are even bothering to continue making improvements to the core game (they could very easily just be re-skinning the same idea over and over), and b) even more great that they're making really intelligent improvements, which are aware of and focussed on their core audience of under-10s.

Basically it seems Travellers' Tales are the only people making kids' games that don't insult kids at this point.

JimD, Saturday, 19 March 2011 13:57 (eight years ago) link

(The improvements, btw, come down to more puzzles, less fighting, smoother co-op experience. All good stuff).

JimD, Saturday, 19 March 2011 13:59 (eight years ago) link

^^^ yes; I've been watching my son play this a bunch & I agree with this take on the improvements, though I oughta try playing co-op with him.

I've read that Toy Story 3 is a pretty good kids game but I haven't picked it up yet, gonna let my boy drain the Harry Potter game first.

Euler, Saturday, 19 March 2011 15:21 (eight years ago) link

I periodically check the Ys Forum for Ys Origin (Ys Six for the pc) fan-made translation patch. Ys fans have been waiting years for that patch. If you don't feel bad about torrenting Japanese games then I say go ahead and get Ys The Oath in Felghana (Ys Five for the pc) and the translation patch for that one (some low end PCs can play it just fine).

Ys = fast smooth hack'n'slah action that isn't as simpleminded as many hack'n'slash games since there is more emphasis on dodging, memorizing boss patterns and not all enemies can be powered through with a flurry of sword strikes -- many have unique patterns and attributes that will change up the way you approach combat with them. Ys hack'and'slash is rewarding because it's fast, like I already mentioned, and there is a variety of attacks/combos. Plus the graphics are always good looking. There isn't really many puzzles or as many kinds of items as A Link to the Past but I still think that's a good game to compare Ys to.

U2 the musical by Spiderman (CaptainLorax), Saturday, 19 March 2011 20:02 (eight years ago) link

I can't believe someone else voted for ys 7! all of the town/plot/dialogue stuff is incredibly dull but the hackin' and slashin' is the heart of it and it just feels so right.

I wouldn't fault anyone for putting the game down because dull and overlong introductions to a story i don't care about/endless training tutorials RIGHT AT THE START OF A GAME are my number one pet peeves with game design. it amazes me that games still do this to people. my time is limited and I want to actually PLAY SOMETHING, people!!

but if you can soldier through, you'll be rewarded with a very fun hack n slash rpg.

playing the PSP remake of ys 1 & 2 right now. highly recommended if you've never played these games before in one of their thousands of other reincarnations.

no problem! with Wordpress it's basically just a matter of cutting everything straight from the posts & pasting it straight in; the biggest hassle is grabbing the YouTube links and that ain't no thang. at this point the tagging probably takes longer than pulling the info from the post.

james, any idea why it's so trafficked? is it getting hit on GIS?

just GIS'ed it: answer is YES. I run a SNES blog and the pages that get the most hits are accidentally SEO'd into getting mad hitz.

Was a best of the decade (2000s) poll ever done on ILG?

I think the only non-yearly one we did was the attempt at the PS2 poll but I don't think that even made it to the polling stage

the pussy/butthole addendum (jamescobo), Tuesday, 5 April 2011 22:51 (eight years ago) link

We did the poll for the PS2 one, I have the results, I was just kind of bummed by the turnout so I never published it -- I may do so when Forks is done, though! I am still sitting on the list!

Postmodern Bourbon Development (Will M.), Tuesday, 5 April 2011 22:53 (eight years ago) link

aw i wondered what happened to that, trying to choose 10 made me go back & play some of the ps2 games i missed the first time round - think my 10 would be a lot different today

c'mon forks!!!!

Nhex, Tuesday, 5 April 2011 23:08 (eight years ago) link

It may make more sense at this point for me to completely re-run the polling & maybe even the nominations for PS2, and anyone who doesn't send in another list I'll just use their old one to beef up the numbers. That's somehow unethical though I bet. Ha.
