NBA 2K18

Kyrie Irving is the standard edition cover star, DeMar DeRozan is the Canadian edition cover star and Shaq is on the standard and gold Legend editions.

MyGM and MyLeague news from Senior Producer

MyLeague is my favorite mode in the 2K games, so adding a story + G-League and new CBA stuff like supermax deals has me pretty hyped.

If Irving is traded before the game comes out, would he be the first cover athlete to change teams after being announced? Or will they just change his jersey?

Would be the first for the NBA, I believe.  It happened with Brett Favre on Madden the year he got moved to the Jets.

It sounds like they are putting a stupid amount of detail into every feature this year

I had already pre-ordered but reading that article and seeing the amount of additions to MyLeague has made me cancel my Amazon pre-order and buy it from the PS Store to make sure I get it as early as possible. Can't wait.

Does it count with Favre tho? Cause he retired, then unretired to join the Jets.

He didn't un-retire to join the Jets.  He came back from retirement to rejoin the Packers, even going into camp with them and they dealt him to the Jets.  Pretty much exactly the criteria you laid out.

I'm excited for this, I played a bunch of MyGm in 2k16 but mostly played MyLeague in 2k17 mainly due to how much was able to be customized but with story mode in MyGm I'll likely give this a try more

I got this game on PC ever since they went with next gen graphics. But I might just get it for Xbox One instead this year, now that i got that system.

I heard that the internet stuff is generally much better on console for 2K, and I'm done with the particular annoyances on the pc version. Rd. Hackers, Big lack of activity, MyTeam being dead...

Heck, might even pick it up at release after this post-season and if they can wow me with fundamental fixes. (Cyberfaces being ugly and a dime in a million, generated rookies having no rhyme or reason to their tendencies/Attributes (Top PGs with 40 speed w/ ball, 50 passing, but 85 post hook))

Are these games still really hard for casual players like me?

multiplayer, yes. But I feel playing on the lower difficulties is a good way to learn how the game works and prep you for higher difficulties. Best is to have a knowledge of the sport and how it's played, and you need to have a 'feel' for learning timings of the players on your team.

Yeah I normally suck at Basketball games but I lowered the difficulty and messed with a few sliders and found a sweet spot where it wasn't incredibly frustrating but I also had some good close games.

No chance in hell I'll ever try multiplayer though. I know better :P

I had fun with MyPlayer on 2k11. Is that still decent?

MyPlayer has gotten a 'story mode' since 2k16, which really is just some narrative here and there to fill up a year or so of your players career to make it less dry. As a whole, it's still good although with its integration with MyPark (multiplayer) you can't get a perfect player anymore. Every position + archetype has a maximum amount of points you can put into certain skills.

But in terms of gameplay, it's probably better than ever. You can do more with sliders and difficulty, and all that stuff.

I know this is a great for the 2k series, but didn't think it needed a new post...EA announced today that the WNBA teams and players will be in NBA Live 18.

Does NBA live even work? Haven't they had problems with the game actually working, and that's why it hasn't been released in a few years?

This year they've added ESPN First Take with Stephen A Smith to the game, so yes, they would absolutely have to pay me to play it.

I wouldn't even play it now if they paid me.

In 2K news, they've added an all time team for all 30 teams. I'm wondering if these are full 12 man rosters or smaller? And is the Sonics players gonna be on the all time team for the thunder?

I downloaded the NBA Live demo that's out now to play later - I'm hopeful, mostly due to me wanting a basketball game that I can play fully without a fuckton of microtransactions.

Do you need EA Access to play the NBA Live demo? I might be inclined to download it on Xbox One if I could.

As stupid as I know that would be and that it's not gonna happen, it would make more sense than trying go come up with a 12 man all time team for the Thunder. What would they do? Just use the team they went to the Finals with?

      With free agency set to begin tomorrow, I think it's time to start a new topic.
      Kemba Walker is expected to sign with the Boston Celtics. So much for giving the Hornets a homedown discount.
      Nikola Mirotic is expected to sign with Barcelona of the Euroleague. Did not see that one coming.
      Warriors are going to give Klay Thompson a max contract, while Durant is taking meetings with the Knicks, Clippers, and Warriors.
      Kawhi Leonard is also meeting with the Clippers, along with the Lakers and the Raptors.
      Kyrie Irving is trying to get something done with the Nets.
      Derrick Favors is going to open up free agency taking calls from whoever, although the Jazz have until July 6th to guarantee his contract or make him an unrestricted free agent. The Jazz are expected to meet with Bobby Portis in LA tomorrow. I'm sure the talks there will decide what we do with Favors.
      Bunch of other rumors out there too but that covers a lot of them, I think. Should be a fun summer.

      Figured since the first big move of the off season just happened and with the draft tomorrow, it would be ok to start a new season thread. 
      The Hornets have agreed to trade Dwight Howard to the Nets for Timothy Mozgov.

      Couldn't find a thread for this coming season, so.
      I need help. It appears the League Pass option where I could pay relatively little and choose any 8 games a month is gone (boooo). And I don't want to pay £25 a month. So the £15 option is to pick a single team. Thing is I've never really settled on a team to follow/support. So I need to choose a team that's going to be an entertaining watch this year, plenty of exciting/close games. I'd also rather not watch the top few teams spend half the season dominating their opponents.
      So who would people advise I consider?
      I've thought about the Thunder but not a huge fan of Westbrook, same for the Rockets and Harden. I thought about the Bucks but Giannis doesn't reason enough on his own. Hell, I've considered LAL for the freakin' circus show of it all this year but I just can't.
      So who EWB? Who? Please help. Who's going to be a fun team to watch this year?
