NBA Live 19, launching in September, will allow users to create women players for the first time in series history. Female or male, players will have the same experiences in the game’s single-player career suite, “The One,” EA Sports announced today.

Female players will also be able to scan themselves into the game (using a companion app on iOS or Android mobile devices) to embark on their virtual careers. NBA Live 19 will also offer abilities and perks modeled on stars from the women’s game, such as Candace Parker, the five-time all-star for the WNBA’s Los Angeles Sparks.

Destiny’s Grimoire will be printed in book form this fall

The original Destiny received no shortage of criticism for its story, namely that some of the most interesting parts of its narrative weren’t actually in the game itself, but tucked away in unlockable lore dumps called the Grimoire. Those Grimoire entries could be read online, but for many players, that wasn’t the ideal delivery mechanism for Destiny’s expansive lore.

Now, Destiny’s Grimoire is coming in book form, an anthology series that will kick off this fall.

WarioWare Gold makes the best use of your amiibo collection

WarioWare Gold is coming to Nintendo 3DS on Aug. 3, marking the first time the beloved troublemaker’s minigames have made it onto the handheld. While the game boasts over 300 microgames and a story mode, one of the game’s most interesting features will breathe new life into your amiibo collection.

Throughout your time with the game, you’ll earn coins that you can spend to randomly unlock a series of interactive toys, minigames, pieces of Nintendo history and more. One of those “toys” is a mode called “Wario’s amiibo Sketch” and it’s an absolutely wonderful and silly use for amiibo.

The best parts of the new No Man’s Sky outweigh the bad ones

Polygon’s Tara Long put more than 250 hours into No Man’s Sky before the Next update launched this Tuesday. Here, she breaks down what it is in the new game that really caught her attention. And it’s much more than just the new third-person perspective or multiplayer features.

Some might differ on the changes — refining resources, for example, adds another layer to crafting and resource management in the gameplay that some might find more time consuming than worthwhile. The new guide feature, for example, catalogs all of the items you can acquire in No Man’s Sky and is a huge assist for a game with such a big crafting component.

No Man’s Sky save glitch is already fixed, but learn how to protect yourself today

Some No Man’s Sky players are having issues with their saved games after the latest update, but it looks like the problem has already been fixed. In the short term, however, be careful if you run into this bug.

“A whole bunch of people, including myself, have run into a bug in Next that prevents you from loading an existing save file. Instead of putting you back into the game at the point you saved, the game simply restarts you on a new planet with the ‘Initializing’ white screen,” a player wrote on Reddit.
