WAA - NBA Street: Homecourt

This week's edition of WAA is NBA Street: Homecourt. It's a 3 on 3 arcade-style basketball game in a similar vein to NBA Jam and Arch Rivals. For basketball fans, it's a fun little title.

The "One With Combat"Award: "Online Showdown"
For this one, you just need to play 10 online matches. Wins and losses don't matter, so it's as simple as jumping into the lobby, choosing quick match, and repeating the process a few times.

The "Mile High Club" Award: "King of the Court"
Most of the Achievements are pretty easy, but this one can be tough. You have to win 10 online games in a row. The online community is fairly dead, and there's always the risk that you run into a great player who breaks your streak. The good news is that this can be done in private matches against a friend, so just pick one who stinks at basketball games and goad him/her into repeated play sessions until you grab this award.

The "Seriously..." Award: "Seeing Double"
The story mode has you create a player and work your way up in level until you can challenge for a Street Basketball Championship. This Achievement tasks you with going most of the way through the career mode a second time (Level 10), which is a pointless waste of time.

The "Little Rocket Man" Award: "Dunkalicious"
This one is fun. You need to do five "jumpoff" dunks, which is when one of your teammates kneels on the ground and you jump off his back to do a thunderous dunk.

The Scientist Gone Gamer Award: "Ultimate Finish"
Win a game with a special "Gamebreaker" move. Oh Snap!

Achievement Set Rating - 4
The icons are mediocre, though I guess the award titles are "street". Mostly the list is just plowing through the career mode and a little bit of online play.

Achievement Difficulty Rating - 2
None of the special dunks are hard to do, and the career mode is ridiculously easy (especially if you create a 3-point specialist). If you can dominate a buddy for the 10 straight online wins, you can wrap up the whole set in a weekend.
