    NBA Jam

    Anybody else buy NBA Jam lately?

    When the announcer said "boomshakalaka", I knew I made the right decision.

    Wait, what? Where/how can you buy NBA Jam? Is it just a download on the Wii?

    Re: NBA Jam

    Bought it for Wii last night. I'm playing as the Thunder (since the Sonics moved).

    Well worth the $50. I got the last copy from Wal-Mart on 73rd in Des Moines. I was up until midnight last night playing.

    Re: NBA Jam

    It was fun on the arcade but I never was good enough to make any particular move on purpose. Mostly a lot of movement in hopes that I would score or block a shot by accident. Still enjoyed it though.

    I don't think there were any moves to be done were there? Turbo, turbo, turbo, SUPER DUNK. Turbo, turbo, turbo, forearm shiver, Turbo, pass, 3 pointer from half court.

    One of the best games of all time. I love it on Super Nintendo to this day.

    Agree, used to have some NBA jam battles after the bar closed, fun to this day. It also led to one of my friend's getting Chris Mullin's face tattoed on his shoulder.

    You may be right but I still always felt like it was just hammering on the joystick randomly as opposed to making particular moves. Kind of like when I play fighting games like mortal kombat. I'm not much of a gamer
