In 2005, I likely would've looked at myself mad for saying that announcement. Especially after the release of NFL 2K5 but the NBA 2K series now is NBA 2K21 MT for sale so bothersome as a basketball enthusiast. Here is to hoping that some competition comes around. I dunno, unpopular opinion but as somebody who only plays with MyGM for countless hours, it's still fairly fantastic. The MyPlayer and I've never jumped online after rather than played.
I agree with that but additionally NBA 2Kplay feels really stagnant/getting worse. I'd had a good break and coming back it was a small jolt. They need to work on the gameplay in a way that they haven't really since 2K11.
Yeah I gotId disagree w you guy. I've played 2K from 2K6-2K20 (and stopped buying them later 2K16). They have removed amazing features through time, become extremely exploitative with VC/MT, and have not notably enhanced the atrocious AI and role-playing game in years. They shore off of their chokehold on the market and dedicate their resources to superficial nonsense like Spike Lee directing unskippable cutscenes or even Idris Elba being your coach. Unacceptable shit happens every time I play a 2K game. The CPU competition might dribble beyond the 3pt line for 23 seconds then receive their shit packed on a greatly contested 3.
My CPU teammates have inexplicable breakdowns on defense or can not fill lanes. No one can make a pass to half court or more with no flying out of bounds, like they're not professional athletes. While it just safely dropped at the hoop random 360 windmills in traffic blocked. I can't even create the MyPlayer I want because they imposed these bs limits on stats and made NBA 2K far more grindy. They are the worst programmers possible.
As a big NBA fan I like that they put Kobe in to the covers, though I am conflicted on using him for this season's legend variant. Obviously Kobe is Kobe, he's been the legend variant cover athlete before, but now that he has passed away I do not know if I like them using his likeness to sell the 100 expensive special variant. Additionally, I hope there is feature parity between current gen and next gen models. Afaik the model coming to PC is your gen, and I'm not likely to get a PS5 for a little while yet.
Individuals really mad the a LEGEND is about the legend edition. People who purchase the variant do so because they take pleasure in the bonuses and can manage it. If not they'll settle with edition. I doubt somebody is gonna break their bank just to receive a cover picture if it is Kobe. Kobe was of course expected and just fitting. Covers are stunning. Current to next gen transition is causing a great deal of confusion but is far better than expected. Remember NBA 2K is published by precisely the exact same company that is about to buy 2K21 MT re-release GTA V for another time.
