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.
I used to throw my controller across the room when I got frustrated. These days, with touch screens and gyroscopes and motion sensors, that's probably not such a good idea. I'm well out of the video game loop by this point, but I can tell you this: I damn sure wouldn't want my console enforcing its puritan morality on…
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 2K has long been the best basketball video game franchise on the market. This year's version is just as good as past installments, but as Kotaku's review points out, nothing much has been added. Maybe 2K is holding something back for next-gen consoles?
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.
