Campus Dynasty Review – A powerful simulation in the palm of your hand

In my first season coaching the Daytona Beach Wildcats, my season expectations were low. I was expected to win only 6 games and bow out ingloriously at the end of the season. I managed to win 7 games and blew out the #3 seed in my conference tournament before taking the inglorious bow that I was expected to all along. Seeing a glimmer of hope I rushed into recruiting season hoping to land a new gu...[Read More]

John Comey pays a visit to DDSCB20 and shares his impressions

Normally, I review games from Wolverine Studios for GM Games. This year, I got a new job, which involved me taking over a second grade classroom for a teacher on maternity leave. In March. As you could expect, this cut into my time significantly, to the point that I could not write a preview for this year’s game. That was upsetting, but such is life. Then, well, everything that has happened since ...[Read More]

Review of Draft Day Sports College Basketball 2020: A deep dive into a college basketball universe all your own

I went into reviewing Wolverine Studios’ latest release, Draft Day Sports College Basketball 2020, with at least some idea what I would find there. I had played previous WS releases more than a decade ago before real life intervened and my time for such pastimes waned. Full disclosure: I’ve been playing the sports management simulation genre for a very long time, as in back in the time...[Read More]

It is finally here. We have talked endlessly about getting an NBA roster update on #dynasty-manager chat. And now, amazingly, a major roster update for Basketball Dynasty Manager 16. Don’t ask us if there will be a new version of the game, we have no clue. We do know that InczeTigate is busy working on another sports project (ssshhh… Patrick Mahomes, Touchdown!) This is a reminder that...[Read More]

Review of Basketball GM – So many features packed in to one game

Basketball GM is a free single-player browser-based basketball simulation game by Dumbmatter / Jeremy Scheff. I have been playing it daily for around two years now and the amount of depth, yet simplicity of it, keeps me coming back for more. The work the developer has put into this game really shines through and the constant update and additions truly make it one of the premier games of this genre...[Read More]

First Access of Draft Day Sports: Pro Basketball 2020 (PC)

With the advent of Wolverine Studios’ latest pro basketball effort, Draft Day Sports: Pro Basketball ’20, now currently in the public beta First Access phase, I thought I should take it for a bit of a test drive.

Review of DDS Pro Basketball 2018 – For a basketball franchise, no game does it better

I have been a member of the sim gaming community for about twenty years now. In that time, I have been fortunate to see several games, most notably Out of the Park, where I have been a member of the beta team for several years, grow from a smaller game with several good ideas into a global game that, at some points, tries to do too much for a broad audience. (This is not a knock on OOTP, nor on th...[Read More]

Review – An immersive, intuitive basketball game in DDSCB18

It’s been awhile since I reviewed a game. Often, life gets in the way. Adulting happens. If you’re like me, your ability to play games becomes somewhat scarce. As a result, your collection of games may shrink as well. Therefore, you may become more critical about the games you choose. This is true of any genre. In the last decade, the prevailing thought in the sim gaming community was that this wo...[Read More]
