The talented team at 2K Sports most definitely over delivered on NBA 2K12. Man, that game does pretty much everything I've ever wanted a basketball game to do, and then does things that I didn't even know that I wanted a basketball game to do (example: the awesome My Player mode).

But now, for the price of 800 Microsoft point on Xbox Live or $9.99 on PlayStation Network, you can experience over-over delivery with the game's new Legends Showcase pack.

The Nintendo 3DS is a terrific gaming machine in a number of ways. It's powerful, portable, lets you take pictures of your dog in 3D, etc. But the machine does have one fundamental flaw. Its rechargeable battery typically loses its charge--especially if you've got the 3D slider at maximum--within 3 to 5 hours.

Enter the Hyperkin Powerplus for the 3DS.

EA Sports--particularly their Vancouver-based development team--always seems to make it look easy. While EA Tiburon--makers of Madden--sweat and labor and work their fingers to the bone to make each successive Madden better than the last Madden, EA Vancouver and their hockey sims always seem to arrive silently and elegantly, like a puck quietly sliding into a net. Year in and year out, these guys deliver an excellent approximation of the sport of professional hockey. And this year is no different.

So what's new? And do you need to buy this year's NHL if you already own last year's? Let's take a closer look.

Must-See Video of the Day: The Latest NBA 2K12 Trailer 4

The best sports game in the universe--of course I'm referring to NBA 2K11--is in grave danger of losing its crown. Which game, you might ask, has the sand to take that crown? 

The answer: NBA 2K12.

The game isn't due in stores until the first week in October, but already the Sports Gamer office is abuzz with excitement over what 2K Sports is promising this year in 2K12. Instead of shifting the franchise into cruise control and taking a well-deserved victory lap around the game industry, the development team seems to be working double-time over there, making sure that they maintain their full-court press on the competition. Keep reading to see a trailer for the game, including all of its cool new features!

Calendars list all the usual holidays--Thanksgiving, July 4th, Labor Day, etc.--but no calendar, with the exception of the one the Sports Gamer has on his desk, lists Madden Day.

Yes, Madden Day is the annual holiday when football fans and Madden fans everywhere gather together in game stores and electronics stores to pick up their copies of Madden. Then they head home and fire up the game for the first time, steeping themselves in a whole lot of football goodness.

Madden NFL 12 Takes the Sports Gamer's Annual "Madden Test" 1

My NFL team of choice is--and always has been--the New York Giants. When the Sports Gamer was younger, the Giants were terrible. I recall watching a Sunday afternoon game with my dad. The Giants were just about to wrap up a victory against their rival, the Philadelphia Eagles. On the final play of the game, instead of just kneeling on the ball, the QB attempted tried to hand the ball off and fumbled, and one of the Eagles (Trivia: It was Herman Edwards, the future NFL coach) picked up the ball and ran it in for a touchdown. The Giants lost the game that day, but they gained a life-long fan in me.
