EA's NBA Jam Updated With Google Play Games Support For Online Multiplayer, Leaderboards, And Achievements

Listen, EA, you're one of the biggest video game publishers in the world. It's not my place to tell you what to do, and far be it from me to say that you have to support Android's standard online and social gaming featureset in your games. But it would probably be a good idea. Case in point: the over-the-top basketball game NBA Jam. The title just got updated with Google Play Games support.

Now you can take on the role of MacGyver in the official MacGyver Deadly Descent game. It is unclear if you get to build an ultralight plane out of an old outboard motor, pipes, and a tarp, but there are plenty of puzzles to solve.

Some Mobile Game Publishers Are Forcing Developers To Go Free-To-Play (And Pay-To-Win) Or Go Home

Google Has Quietly Implemented Automated Refunds For Apps After The 15 Minute Window

Google changed the policy for app refunds from 24 hours to 15 minutes a few years ago, but Android users eventually adjusted to it.
