The NFL just kicked off for 2018 and the new NBA season is right around the corner, but it’s streaming giant Ninja who is on the cover of next month’s ESPN The Magazine.
Steelers reveiver JuJu Smith-Schuster scored a TD earlier today against the Chiefs, and to celebrate went all Naruto on teammate Jesse James, hitting the TE with a football-themed Rasengan.
Let’s start with the good news: NBA 2K19 is not as egregious with its nickel-and-diming as NBA 2K18 was. But that being the good news is also what makes this the worst news.
NBA 2K18 had a lot of problems, the biggest being the fact it was riddled with microtransactions. I’ve been playing 2K19 all weekend and while some of the same issues persist at least there’s one difference: haircuts are now free, and the new barber is very aware of it.

Mario Tennis Aces is slamming into Switches everywhere this weekend, so I think it’s time for us to get video games ready for summer sports.
DeAndre Ayton is projected to be the #1 pick in this year’s NBA draft. He’s going to have all summer to get ready for the 2018-19 season, but he (or his social media person) might also take that time to put in some work on their video game marketing skills.
Around 15 years ago, there was a Half-Life mod released called International Online Soccer, which turned Valve’s classic shooter into a football game. Now, just in time for the 2018 World Cup, it’s back.
The kind of person reading this website probably thinks E3 is for you, the F5ing obsessive keen for Cyberpunk and The Last Of Us Part II, but for millions of fans around the world it’s about little more than the first good look at the only game they’ll be playing seriously for the next 12 months.
