The latest game in the NBA 2K series is frustrating to play if you don’t want to spend any additional money on top of the $60 you have to shell out to get the game.
Didn’t we only just go through this with PES? Now it’s NBA 2K’s turn to have its already-anointed cover athlete screw things up by changing teams before the game is even out.
Ronnie Singh, aka Ronnie2K, is the social media face of 2K’s NBA series. Because he deals with players a lot, he’s become friends with many of them, to the point where he was at a wedding recently and found himself up in front of the whole gathering explaining how the game’s player ratings work.
It started with 2K Sports tweeting out screenshots from NBA 2K18 that included the overall ratings of the players depicted. Here is our man John Wall’s edition:
Today the NBA and Take-Two Interactive announced the 17 NBA teams that have agreed to participate in the inaugural NBA 2K league. The NBA teams that will let their virtual logos and jerseys appear in the esports league are:
Today, the National Basketball Association announced plans to partner with publisher Take-Two Interactive for an official NBA 2K esports league, which led NBA commissioner Adam Silver to deliver this fantastic quote to the Wall Street Journal: “Think of eBulls against the eKnicks.”
The curtain comes down on Kobe Bryant’s 20-year NBA career tonight, and nothing makes you realise just how old this guy is like seeing the gulf between the first and last video games he made an appearance in.
Sport video game modders, you’ve finally gone too far.
There are few better sports stories than the rise of Stephen Curry, a breathtaking human cheat code who may go down as the best shooter in NBA history. He’s so good, in fact, that NBA 2K doesn’t know how to capture him.
NBA2K16 is a mainstream sports video game, meaning its full of things like stats, complex controls and painstaking licensing. But it’s also home to something a lot more adventurous and potentially important: a role-playing game where you take a kid from high school to the NBA.
Welcome to 2015, everyone.
Hassan Whiteside went for 14 points, 13 boards, and 12 blocks today in a 24-minute frenetic performance that led the Heat to a 96-84 win over the Bulls today. What sparked his career day? "I'm just trying to win every game... I'm just trying to get my NBA2K rating up."
You haven't really seen video game basketball until you've seen this Space Jam-themed NBA 2k14 mod by YouTuber MkEliteWorksX.
Earlier this afternoon, 2K Sports' Ronnie Singh—Ronnie2K on Twitter—gave everyone playing NBA 2K14 a code for a special pre-game player animation as a make-good for the online troubles that paralyzed the game this weekend. Naturally, when I went to enter the code on my PlayStation 4, 2K's servers were down.
To a video gamer, the pairing was so natural that I didn't recognize how unusual it really was. On Oct. 12, ESPN broke up its top two announcing teams to put Brad Nessler and Kirk Herbstreit in the booth for the network's Texas A&M-Ole Miss nightcap. The two have, virtually anyway, worked millions of games together in…
Chris Paul tore up the Blazers last night. And while Portland pulled out the win, CP3 went off hard enough that Kevin Harlan broke out the NBA2k routine.
Heading into this console transition my opinion was that, of all the genres that could possibly sell a new Xbox or PlayStation, sports would come in last. Despite the richer visuals and refined experiences I've seen so far, that opinion still stands.
NBA 2K14 will add Euroleague teams to the series for the first time, reintroducing international basketball to console gaming after a three-year hiatus brought on by NBA Live's absence.
Reading between the lines of an open letter by NBA Live's new executive producer, one understands that whatever comes next in that franchise is really no continuation of last year's effort, which, like its 2010 predecessor, was aborted a few weeks before its assumed date of release.
Solidly established as professional basketball's best player and a mortal lock for the hall of fame, LeBron James, after 10 years as an A-list superstar, will finally appear on the cover of a video game when NBA 2K14 hits shelves this autumn.
