Weekly PC download charts: ‘The Scroll of Taiwu’, ‘Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’, ‘Thronebreaker’

The next slice of action adventure from "The Witcher" franchise arrives in the form of a card game; historical epic "Assassin's Creed" prepares to dive into Ancient Greece; and Chinese-language dynastic strategy game "The Scroll of Taiwu" rises to the top of the Steam charts. "The Scroll of Taiwu" may only be available in Chinese, and available for a quarter of the price of a big publisher's top-tier release, but that's not prevented it from vaulting up the Steam charts from last week's seventh place. Speaking of big releases, "Assassin's Creed: Odyssey" can be found atop the Humble Store's bestseller list and a similar trajectory could be expected on Steam, where it sits in ei...Keep on reading: Weekly PC download charts: ‘The Scroll of Taiwu’, ‘Assassin’s Creed Odyssey’, ‘Thronebreaker’.....»»

NBA 2K League holds first expansion draft

NBA 2K League press release SECAUCUS – The NBA 2K League held its first expansion draft today at the NBA office in Secaucus, New Jersey. The league’s four expansion teams, affiliates of the Atlanta Hawks, Brooklyn Nets, Los Angeles Lakers and Minnesota Timberwolves, recently announced their NBA 2K League names as Hawks Talon GC, NetsGC, Lakers Gaming and T-Wolves Gaming, respectively. Each of the four expansion teams selected two players from a pool of 68 players who participated in the inaugural season and were not protected by their original team. All expansion draftees will join their new teams for the 2019 season. The expansion draft was a two-round snake draft, meaning that the second round had the inverse order of the first round.  With the first pick, Hawks Talon GC selected Connor “Dat Boy Shotz” Rodrigues, who spent his first season in Portland with Blazer5 Gaming.  NetsGC selected second, T-Wolves Gaming selected third and Lakers Gaming selected fourth. The complete list of round-by-round selections and team-by-team selections can be found below. The draft order was determined by a draft lottery earlier this month, which was conducted by drawing ping-pong balls in random order from the official ball machine that is used for the NBA Draft Lottery. From Sept. 27 to Oct. 10, all 21 teams will have the opportunity to make trades, and the original 17 teams can retain additional players from their 2018 rosters in exchange for 2019 draft picks. For more information on offseason player protection, additional player retainment, and trade rules, click here. The date of the 2019 NBA 2K League Draft will be announced in the coming months. The 2019 NBA 2K League Draft order is subject to change based on trades and additional player retainment.  For more information about the NBA 2K League, visit and follow @NBA2KLeague on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram......»»

NBA press release NEW YORK, MIES, MUMBAI – The National Basketball Association (NBA), the International Basketball Federation (FIBA) and the Basketball Federation of India (BFI) today announced the top 66 boys and girls from 16 countries and territories who will participate in the 10th edition of Basketball Without Borders (BWB) Asia. BWB Asia 2018 will be held May 30 – June 2 at The NBA Academy India in Delhi National Capital Region (NCR), marking the second time that the NBA and FIBA’s global basketball development and community outreach program will be held in India. Nike will serve as the official partner. Corey Brewer (Oklahoma City Thunder; U.S.), Caris LeVert (Brooklyn Nets; U.S.), Kelly Olynyk (Miami Heat; Canada; BWB Americas 2009), Dwight Powell (Dallas Mavericks; Canada), two-time WNBA Champion Ruth Riley, and former WNBA player Ebony Hoffman will coach the top high school age campers from throughout the Asia-Pacific region. BWB Asia 2018 will feature two current prospects from NBA Academies, the league’s signature elite player development initiative that consists of a network of elite basketball training centers around the world for top male and female prospects from outside the U.S. Since October 2016, NBA Academies have been launched in Canberra, Australia; Jinan, Urumqi and Zhuji, China; Delhi NCR, India; Mexico City, Mexico; and Thies, Senegal. Players and coaches will lead the campers through a variety of activities on and off the court, including movement efficiency, positional skill development, shooting and skills competitions, 5-on-5 games, and daily life skills seminars focusing on health, leadership and communication. One boy and one girl will be named BWB Asia 2018 MVPs at the conclusion of the four-day camp. BWB Asia 2018 will be preceded by a basketball development camp May 27 – 29 for the 18 female prospects from throughout India as part of The NBA Academies Women’s Program. 1996 Olympic Gold Medalist and Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame member Jennifer Azzi, Riley and former college coach Blair Hardiek – the global technical directors for women’s programming across the league’s seven academies – will oversee the camp.
