I'm going to make this short and sweet tonight, because in all honestly, I have been fighting a really nasty flu bug and I feel like death. In between full-body shakes, constant pain, headaches and some great naps, I still managed to play a little games. And tonight, due mainly in part to the fact I've been watching NBA games all night, I felt compelled to try out another fee offering from PS Plus, NBA Jam: On Fire Edition.
Now, the rosters are set for before last season started, so there have been quite a few player moves in the league since the game, and while it would be cool if they updated the game to reflect the current rosters, the game is still fun.
NBA Jam and I go way back to my youth, when I used to play it in every arcade I was in, and then play it at home for hours, typing in all the cheat codes and what not. The fact that EA Sports was smart enough to bring this franchise back is awesome, however I feel that it probably only is truly appreciated by my generation of gamers.
The voice acting, the catch phrases, the dunks, everything is still as fun as I always remember it to be. Oh, and the computer still cheats badly, especially when you go up by a few buckets. Glad to see the developers brought that back as well ... not.
Ok, that's it for tonight. Sorry for the short, mostly uninteresting post. I just need to go lie down again. Ugggghhhhh....

Agree entirely about this game being generational. I played this with my girlfriend's younger brother (8 years my junior) on the 360, and he just couldn't get into it. He thought it was ridiculous and over-the-top. I promptly explained that was the point, but it didn't help. He opted to continue playing League of Legends and I was left to "heat up" on my own...and I still had a great time!
