2020 NBA Roster Update for Dynasty Manager 16 (DM16)

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. I have long championed Gary Gorski’s Michigan-based company and his development over the years has been fantastic to witness. In full disclosure, I need note two things: I have been a par...[Read More]

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]

Several of the major players in the market have offered strong games this year, with a bounty of games coming out within the last two months. Wolverine Studios have been at the forefront, releasing several games (and with a couple of more in the pipeline, rumors say). Gary Gorski has positioned his company well as a one-stop shop for sports games going into 2017. But his bread and butter, both for...[Read More]

Review of DDS Pro Basketball 2016 – Beginning to shine under the hood

Gary Gorski, the man behind the Draft Day Sports series, may have unlocked the secret to an immersive, successful basketball simulation. When it comes to the genre, there are two main divides: Draft Day Sports, delivered by Wolverine Studios, and the Fast Break series, published by GreyDog. I have rather extensive playing experience with both, and both have their pros and cons. FBPB offers more of...[Read More]

Review of Pro Basketball Manager 2016 – Promising though not fully polished

Reviewer’s Note: This game was reviewed using a pre-release copy up to version 1.0.0.7 Pro Basketball Manager 2016 (PBM2016) reminds me of a pro prospect whose raw abilities are promising, but still are not fully polished. It certainly has flashes of brilliance, and its future could be really bright, but the question is: Do you want to take a chance on it now? But before we get ahead of ourselves,...[Read More]


Review of Fast Break Pro Basketball 3 (PC) – One of the deepest pro basketball simulators on the market

FastBreak Pro Basketball 3 (FBPB3) reminds you that a sports-text sim doesn’t have to be able to do everything in order to provide a good gaming experience. Like a dependable, gritty power forward in basketball, FBPB3 may not be flashy or even revolutionary, but what it does, it does well. Released in 2013, FBPB3 is the latest from Brian Nichols, the creator of FastBreak Pro Basketball and FastBre...[Read More]
