We recently had an opportunity to interview Jeff Thomas, vice president of sports development at Visual Concepts to discuss some more details about the new 2K Pro-Am mode in NBA 2K16. While we had many questions from the OS community, most of them could not be answered at this time, due to details on other modes yet to be announced. With that said, enjoy the quick interview and let us know what you think.

IGN has posted some WWE 2K16 gameplay and entrance videos, along with some gameplay details. Chain grappling returns, with more transitions and moves, they will also have more impact with the different attribute values each wrestler has. So you will see ties, resulting in cheap shots or breakups. Working grapples are new this year, if you initiate the grapple, you can rest to gain more stamina, while your opponent loses some.

Quote:
You start each match with a limited stock of reversals. Once you use one, it will slowly regenerate over time, meaning that if you try to counter every move thrown your way, you'll be out in no time flat, leaving you completely vulnerable until one regenerates. What's more, you can now pass on your initial chance to reverse a move at its startup, and instead attempt a mosre difficult to time "major" reversal mid-move. It will cost you two reversal stocks, but the effects can be match-changing, debuffing your opponent in a variety of possible ways and giving you time to really turn things around.

Below are a few more WWE 2K16 details:
  • MyCareer is back, and this time it goes a lot further, all the way to you gaining admission to the WWE Hall of Fame.
  • Create a Diva, Create a Show, Create an Arena, and Create a Championship are back in!
  • WWE Universe: Wrestlers can now be booked to multiple shows
  • Online has been "overhauled."
  • Three-man commentary team, with John "Bradshaw" Layfield joining King and Cole.
  • Ladder, handicap, and tornado tag match types added back in.
  • No loading screens between entrances, and you can assault opponents during their entrance!
  • Improved ref and manager AI.

J.B.L. just announced prior to Monday Night Raw that he will be joining Michael Cole and Jerry 'The King' Lawler in WWE 2K16 as an announcer. This means that WWE 2K16 will feature a three-man commentary team, which could be an effort to boost the series' particular weak point.

Commentary has not been a strong suit of the series ever, and this attempt at a three man booth with additional banter could liven up the TV style presentation. This same approach worked well in the NCAA Football series, so it'd be great if the results were similar in WWE 2K. We're hoping to have more information on the presentation in WWE 2K16 in the coming weeks as future news updates arrive.

With the EASHL Beta program continuing, we managed to get Jayson Young away from his PS4 to talk to us about what he thinks of EASHL so far in a new video.

In the video, Jayson talks about what he likes about the mode, what he's worried about, and gives an outlook on what you can expect. Also, in case you missed it -- we posted additional impressions on the NHL 16 EASHL Beta earlier today from our own Glenn Wigmore as well.

We here at Operation Sports really like Rocket League (like 9 out of 10 like it). We think it's dope, ill and, yes, even fresh. So we want to remind you that today is the final day you can get Rocket League for free via PlayStation Plus.

We think the game is worth the download either way, but hey, you pay for that PS Plus subscription so you should probably just get this really good game for free -- and then play it with all of our other awesome community members.

And if playing with cool Operation Sports folks is not for you, well then you still should not have a problem finding games because Rocket League has already been downloaded over 5 million times, according to the developers at Psyonix.

If you are jumping into the game, you should probably also know that a new patch just came out last Friday. Oh, and we have a new sub-forum for Rocket League that you can check out if you're looking to get tips or just want to chat about one of the best sports games that's been released in the last five years.

The Madden NFL 16 EA Access trial is scheduled to arrive on August 20 and give subscribers 10 hours of gameplay.

With Rory McIlroy PGA TOUR and Battlefield Hardline setting the pace, it looks like 10 hour trials for EA Access subscribers will be the new standard.

If you are looking to get an Xbox One, Microsoft and EA Sports announced their Madden NFL 16 Xbox One bundle, a couple of weeks ago. It includes an Xbox One console with a 1TB hard drive, a full download of Madden NFL 16 and a one-year subscription to EA Access. You can pre-order on Amazon for $399.99, with a scheduled release date of August 18.

In the original review for DriveClub, I cautioned users to either wait until the kinks had been worked out or until the free version was released for PS+.

Since then, both conditions have been met. Most of the online issues and driving quirks have been fixed or tuned. And, if you are a PS+ member, a pretty packed edition is available to you, free of charge.
