  1. NEW VIDEO "First Look and New Features" of Out of the Park Baseball 24 ️ w/ Aaron Shelan
  2. Hi there. I’m going to dispose of my normal two-page intro, mainly because the First Four kicks off tomorrow night, and I’d rather this be out before the NCAA Tournament kicks off on Thursday. That said, if you’re like me, you’re in the middle of the best few weeks of the sports calendar year. From Conference Tourney Week last week, to THE BEST FOUR DAYS OF THE SPORTS YEAR (ie, Thursday-Sunday), to DOING THE SAME THING NEXT WEEK…the NCAA Tournament is, far and away, my favorite singular event of the year. So, it’s fitting that this review is for Draft Day Sports: College Basketball 23, the newest installment of the franchise by Gary Gorski and Wolverine Studios. This year’s version has a bunch new under-the-hood, while giving you a lot of the strong program-building experience you have grown to expect from this product. --- To read the full review, head to:

  5. (Author’s Note: This review is long overdue. In full disclosure, I started writing this in December. It is now February 21. These reviews are all labors of love for me; it is likely not a surprise, especially given the second sentence of this paragraph, that the only payment I receive for writing these is a free game. I don’t say that looking for a handout, but to say this: Unfortunately, life offline, where I am an introverted Social Studies instructor at a first-year high school in a year that is terrible to be a first-year high school (because many realized how difficult and defeating it is to be a teacher in America and decided to leave…ha ha, jokes on you, more jobs for me!), and the burnout that comes from the energy expended from doing that have made getting this done extremely difficult. Seriously, after this review, I may be done for a while…I don’t like half-assing things, and the amount of time and energy I pour into these make it way more difficult for me to commit to doing these in the future. Compound that with a two-week illness that overtook me in January, from which I am still trying to recover my physical health and some of my mental stamina) has completely sabotaged my attempts to finish this in a timely fashion. To Gary Gorski and Wolverine Studios, as well as those who were waiting for a review on this game, I wholeheartedly apologize for the delay. Hopefully, it does the game justice. -JCiv) I have one question for anyone who opens this review. Even if you click this by accident, you’re at GM Games. I’m not even sure what Rule 34 thing you could consult the Google on that causes you to arrive at GM Games by accident. (Nor do I want to know.) So you’re at GM Games by choice, then. That should mean that you’re into sports games, at the very least. And it likely means that you’re also into the sim management genre. So, fellow enthusiast, this question is for you: Why haven’t we gotten the Football Manager of other sports already? Seriously, why hasn’t anyone even attempted it? Is Football Manager really that far advanced that nobody dares to make an attempt? --- To read the full review, head to

    Hi everyone, my name is Chris and I co-ordinate General Manager Games (the sports manager game database). It's been a pleasure working with Slybelle to get the mods that bring that NBA immersion. I have an update for this season on recent photography for players, draft picks, and of course all decent NBA players into free agency. We ask that you have a username at the GM Games forums and have two 2 posts to unlock unlimited downloads. The installer is also an exe file and you'll know it's safe. This is all we ask for the number of hours put in, no asks for donations or money, just 2 minutes of your time and for free. Where to get Draft Day Sports Pro Basketball 2023? (PC): What's Not Included: - SLYBELLE's ESSENTIAL DDSPB22 NBA MOD of Team Names, Logos, G-League Teams, Jerseys. You need to use that in conjunction with this mod for full performance. You will find that here What photography IS Included: - ALL NBA PLAYERS, images with 2022 Portraits - STAFF, Coaches, Owners images with 2021 Photography from around the web How to Install: 1) Extract the file to a folder or somewhere in your downloads folder. 2) Extract either the STEAM version or Non Steam depending which game you have. 3) Run the DDSPB23 GM Games Pro Photo Pack.exe file (allow this with security warnings, as it is the auto-installer) 4) Select the path where you installed the game. 5) Reload your existing save and the images will pull up without having to start a new save!
  12. All new for Franchise Hockey Manager 9 College hockey is here! American college teams are now playable, allowing you to run one of over 60 Division I teams. Since college hockey has some unique challenges, we've added a number of special mechanics to college team management, including a unique player recruitment system, details like managing scholarships and academic eligibility, qualification for the postseason tournament, and more. Injury Deferral: you can now choose to defer injury treatment for some types of injuries until after the season ends. That will let you keep the injured player in the lineup with reduced performance and a risk of making the injury worse. That will allow you to keep the player in the lineup for key games at the end of the year or in the playoffs, but you'll need to balance that against the possibility of getting the player healthy as soon as possible. And the impact of serious injuries on a player's ratings has been beefed up, so major injuries now have a bigger chance of derailing a player's career. The team harmony system has been completely redesigned: "problem" players will now potentially create many more headaches for their General Manager, who'll have to keep a careful eye on their team as off-ice incidents can lead to player conflicts and the formation of divisive factions that can send player morale plummeting. New All-Star Games: we've added all-star games (in multiple formats) to leagues outside the NHL, as well as older formats (like the defending champion playing the rest of the league's all-stars) for the NHL in historical mode. International play in historical mode has been expanded with the addition of the World Junior Championships tournaments, allowing you to replay all the historical tournaments going back to 1974. --- To see the full profile head to:
  13. Coaching is not just asking a player to setup a specific play at a specific time. A successful coach has a set of unique plays that can decide the fate of a game when it matters the most, when the game is on the line! In PBM23 you can create your own plays and call them during the games to take your opponent off-guard. Don’t call the same plays too often though, as your opponent will adapt and try to outsmart you. STATISTICS Be it individual players or teams, you have a whole range of statistics at your fingertips which allow you to manage your progress. You can thus check on your players’ performances (past and present), evaluate your own career, or even look back through the archives of the games of any team featured in PBM23. SCOUTING, TRAINING, FINANCES Through our in-depth scouting system, you can send your scouts around the world to be on the lookout for the next best players to make it to the top. Train your players collectively, but also individually to get the best results. Improve your club's finances by improving your arena to generate extra revenue. GAME SIMULATION 3D mode: Follow the on-court action, making tactical changes on the fly and assigning your own plays to a player. 2D mode: If you prefer, you can also follow the game in 2D. Text mode: You can also follow the game through a series of text messages that will detail the action on the court. If you cannot wait any longer for the result, you can skip a quarter or even the entire game for an immediate result. --- To see the full profile head to:
  14. Squad Planner The Squad Planner will allow players to rank members of their squad to help visualize strengths and weaknesses, but it also includes players on your shortlist. This offers a new resource where players can plan the immediate future of their club across short-term recruitment as well as current lineups. As a private list, it will also mean ranking your players won't hurt their feelings but will allow staff to work around your priorities as you plan them. Match AI Match AI and its animations are the means through which FM players experience the games they manage. With that, it's one of the most important parts of the series. New Licenses FM 23 will have new licenses for all UEFA Club Competitions. This will change things on a deeper level in the game for things like club walkouts heading into the match, trophy celebrations, music, sleeve patches, and more to match the real things. Supporters A club is nothing without its supporters, and in FM 23, supporters will have more of a say with some unique improvements. This, of course, looks to better match reality where the right kind of negative feedback can lead to some massive renovations for a club in short order. In FM 23, supporters will have more say over job security for managers and will have flexible levels of patience and passion around a manager's choices (whether tactical or recruitment related). They will also have new feedback fields so it's crystal clear the consensus at any given time. New Agent Interactions Agents have an important role in recruitment, at times helping you capture that needed star and other times being the sole barrier to them. In FM 23, agents will have some new interaction options to better flesh out the recruitment process. For instance, this year, when asking an agent about their represented players, there will be an option to further negotiate that salary demands are simply out of range for the club. This, among other new options, will let players push back on agent demands and give the process more of a push-and-pull feeling. Further, this will help players to convert more often when working with favourable agents. --- To see the full profile head to:
