2K Games have announced the final cover athlete for NBA 2K21 and it is none other than the Black Mamba himself, Kobe Bryant.

NBA legend Kobe Bryant’s lifetime achievement of basketball excellence is celebrated in the Mamba Forever Edition, and you can check out the chilling tribute video below:

For NBA 2K21, Legend Edition is replaced by the Mamba Forever Edition, celebrating Kobe Bryant’s lifelong pursuit of victory and legacy in the sport of basketball. For many fans, Kobe’s achievements on the court and love for the game had tremendous impact around the world and his list of awards and accolades is intensive: five-time NBA champion, 18-time NBA All-Star, two-time NBA Finals Most Valuable Player, 2008 NBA MVP, 11-time All-NBA First Team, 9-time NBA All-Defensive First Team, two-time NBA Scoring Champion, 2008 and 2012 Olympic Gold Medalist, the all-time leading scorer for the Los Angeles Lakers and much more.

Kobe was the cover athlete for NBA 2K10, the Legend Edition of NBA 2K17 and is immortalized in the NBA 2K21 Mamba Forever Edition with unique custom covers for both current generation and next-generation versions of the game that honor the span of his career, from his days wearing No. 8 and scoring 81 points to scoring 60 points wearing No. 24 the night of his final NBA game.

NBA 2K21 will be available worldwide on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Windows PC and Google Stadia on September 4, 2020. NBA 2K21 will also be available on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X as a launch title this holiday.

2K games have unveiled the full roster of cover athletes for NBA 2K21 and with it, various details like pre-order and special edition specs.

For the current generation platforms, NBA 2K21 will be available on September 4, 2020 and will be available for pre-order from local retailers soon. Damian Lillard will take the spotlight for the standard edition while Kobe Bryant and his #8 jersey graces the cover for the special Mamba Forever edition.

The standard edition will set you back for PHP3,190 while the Mamba Forever edition will retail for PHP5,390.

NBA 2K21 will also be available for the next generation consoles, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X, as a launch title this holiday. Zion Williamson will take flight on the standard version and Kobe Bryant, donning his #24 jersey, takes it home for the Mamba Forever edition.

The standard edition will cost PHP3,690 and the Mamba Forever Edition will go for PHP5,390. Notice that the next gen prices are around $10, or PHP500, higher. Could this be a sign of pricing for next gen titles?

NBA 2K21 will feature MyTEAM Cross-Progression and a Shared VC Wallet within the same console family (PS4 to PS5, Xbox One to Xbox Series X) and to sweeten the deal, purchasing the Mamba Forever Edition, whether for the current or next generation consoles, will provide you with a copy of the standard edition on the other generation at no additional cost.

2K Games will be releasing more announcements like a first look at gameplay as well as details on features for the game soon.

Just before the official trailer debut, the Crytek team have decided to delay the release of Crysis Remastered in favor of more polish.

An announcement from the Crysis Twitter account gave an update, saying that ‘This extra time until release will allow us to get Crysis Remastered up to the PC- and console-breaking standard you’ve come to expect from Crysis games’.

Check out the announcement below:

There was speculation that the trailer leak was negatively received by the public, pointing out graphics and gameplay that did not live up to the expectation, given how Crysis has a history of pushing the hardware to its limits. The developers have acknowledged this by saying ‘we’ve seen all the reactions – the good and the bad – and we’re listening!’

Whatever the case, the did mention that ‘you’ll have the game you love shortly’, so the delay may just be a few weeks to a month or two. We’ll keep our eyes out for the next update from the team!

2K Games have revealed the second of three cover athletes for NBA 2K21 and it is none other than the 2019 #1 Overall Pick, consensus 2019 National College Player of the Year, Zion Williamson.

Williamson is set to lead the cover for the game that will debut when the PlayStation 5 and the Xbox Series X launch in the Holiday of 2020.

Check out the reveal trailer below:

“Being on the cover of NBA 2K has been a dream since I was a kid and to be the first NBA 2K21 cover athlete for the next-generation of gaming is really special,” said Zion Williamson. “Since the day I joined Team 2K, I’ve wanted to make an impact on basketball culture both on and off the court, and being the cover athlete for NBA 2K21 on next-gen consoles lets me do that. I can’t wait to be part of this global phenomenon and hoop with all the ballers out there on NBA 2K21.”

“For the cover of the next-generation version of NBA 2K21, we wanted to find someone who could represent the next-generation of NBA superstar,” stated Alfie Brody, VP of Marketing at NBA 2K. “Zion is one of the few young players who has met the hype and can be considered a standard bearer for the next generation. We’re thrilled that he is representing the 2K21.” 

NBA 2K and Zion’s partnership also extends off the court. 2K Foundations, 2K’s program to support underserved communities by revitalizing basketball courts and community centers across the nation, will work directly with Zion to renovate a site in New Orleans for the local community.

NBA 2K21 is scheduled to launch on for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, and Google Stadia, with PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X versions to follow.

Pre-orders go live on July 2, the same day that the third and final cover athlete will be revealed.

June was quite the exciting month in gaming as The Last of Us 2 finally hit retail along with other notable entries like The Isle of Armor for Pokemon Sword & Shield and Valrorant, among others.

July is shaping to be another month to look forward on account of a diverse lineup of games. It’s all here: VR, returning IPs, new IPs, remakes… You name it, July has got it!

Here are our picks for games to look out for this month!

Marvel’s Iron Man VR (Playstation VR) – July 3, 2020

It’s been a long time since the MCU’s Infinity Saga concluded but the memorable cast of Marvel’s heroes and villains are still fresh in the minds of everyone, especially MCU poster boy Iron Man. PS VR owners are in for a treat as they become the one and only Iron Man in this VR adventure that’s sure to give you the ride of your life.

CrossCode (Playstation 4, Switch, Xbox One) – July 9, 2020

Released back in 2018 for the PC, CrossCode will definitely get your attention for its 16-bit look, and there’s good reason it’ll be releasing for consoles this July on account of the praise it has been getting not only for the nostalgic retro look but also its action and puzzle elements. This blast from the past title is certainly something to look out for.

Story of Seasons: Friends of Mineral Town (Switch, PC) – July 10 (PAL) and 14, 2020 (NA)

If you can’t get enough of the farming life, then you’ll very likely want to get this entry in the game series that introduced us to the joys of farming, Harvest Moon aka Story of Seasons. It’s actually a remake of the Game Boy Advance title of the same name (just with the title change) and has already been released for the Switch in Japan back in October 17, 2019. This July 2020 though, the West will be able to now experience it with an English release for not only the Switch, but also on PC.

Paper Mario: The Origami King (Switch) – July 17, 2020

You can never count everyone’s favorite plumber out when it comes to a game release. Mario is back and is in a new Paper Mario title for the Nintendo Switch. Those who can’t get enough of Paper Mario’s action RPG type gameplay will have something to look forward to now with this newest entry in the series.

Ghost of Tsushima (Playstation 4) – July 17, 2020

It would be a crime to leave this out of the list. Another highly anticipated Playstation exclusive, Ghost of Tsushima, is looking to fulfill your samurai fantasy upon its release where you play as Jin Sakai, one of the last remaining samurai in Tsushima Island during the Mongol invasion of Japan. Bring out the Samurai in you using stealth or head-on sword fighting, and with the developers very hard at work to make the swordplay something worth your while, we just can’t wait.

Destroy All Humans! (Playstation 4, PC, Xbox One) – July 28, 2020

Last month, a classic Spongebob game was remastered. This month sees another well-known title get the remastered treatment. Destroy All Humans was an exciting sandbox title back when it was released back in June 21, 2005 where, as an alien named Cryto, your job is… well… to destroy all humans. It spawned a few more sequels due to its success and we’ll see if lightning strikes twice when the remake launches this July 2020

Grounded (PC, Xbox One) – July 30, 2020

Here’s something for all the Xbox owners. Developers Obsidian Entertainment, of Fallout and Outer Worlds fame, are crafting this interesting title that hits very close to home. That’s because the adventure takes place in your own backyard. Playing as a shrunken individual, you will need to survive against mundane creatures and hazards that became very dangerous at your current size. It’s definitely a quirky new idea and will be interesting to see how it fares when it is released.

2K Games have revealed the first of three cover athletes for NBA 2K21 and it is none other than five-time NBA All-Star and Portland Trail Blazer Damian Lillard.

Lillard is set to lead the cover for the game on all current generation platforms.

Check out the reveal trailer below:

“This is a special moment for me in my NBA career,” said Lillard. “I’ve been a fan of NBA 2K for years and love how they represent all aspects of basketball culture. I’ve been playing 2K my whole life and I’m honored to join the other NBA greats who have been on the cover. I’m grateful to all my fans and can’t wait for everyone to experience this game later this year.”

“There are a lot of great players in the NBA today, but Damian Lillard has done a particularly standout job of representing the current generation of NBA superstar,” stated Alfie Brody, Vice President of Marketing for NBA 2K. “From his cultural influence, musical success, off the court leadership, and on court domination, he’s the perfect fit for our cover of NBA 2K21 on current-generation platforms; we’re honored to have him.”

NBA 2K and Lillard will also partner through 2K Foundations, 2K’s program to support underserved communities by revitalizing basketball courts and community centers across the nation, to renovate a site in his hometown of Oakland, CA for the local community.

NBA 2K21 is scheduled to launch on for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, PC, and Google Stadia. Pre-orders go live on July 2.

Publisher Leoful and the talented Taipei Indie dev team Busy Toaster Games have announced first details on their upcoming platforming manipulation adventure entitled Georifters for the Nintendo Switch.

Check out the trailer below:

Georifters takes platforming to a whole new level as it gifts the player with the ability to manipulate the platforms in a platformer! Push walls, flip the ground, punch portals, spin platforms around you or your friends, and that’s just a few of the creative ways you can interact with this unique and strange world.

Georifters features a story mode with over 6 fantastical worlds for you and a friend to team up with and complete in couch co-op.  You can also enter the “Battle Arena”, a couch competitive mode, where up to 4 players on the same system can challenge each other in a variety of different levels and battle settings. Unlock heroes, mix-and-match skin parts, weapons, and upgrades as you travel through the 300+ stages the game has to offer.

Pre-orders will be available starting July and you can receive the ‘Pro Gamer Candy’ skin part if you purchase the physical version of the game. No news on local retailer stocks just yet so stay tuned.

Georifters is set to launch on the Nintendo Switch in the Summer of 2020.

There’s an new Joy-Con grip in town and it’s looking to give your Switch the punch of color it needs to brighten up the room.

Coming from PowerA, the Pokemon Joy-Con Comfort Grip is now available as a pre-order on Amazon and will set you back a measly $14.99, or roughly around PHP750. No local retailers have placed pre-orders on this item yet but given that we’ve gotten stocks of other PowerA items before, it’s not wrong to expect that this may come to our shores as well.

Clad in a two-tone yellow and black theme, this grip will firmly hold your Joy-Cons in place for those extra tense sessions but don’t expect it to charge them, this is just a grip, for those wondering. Missed opportunity there, eh?

Check out some product shots below and let us know if you’ll want to pick these up when they release on August 15!

After a couple of months of radio silence, new information on the upcoming Crysis Remastered title have surfaced in the form of a Microsoft store listing (again), saying that the game is due for release on July 23.
