Poll Results from this morning of users still having server related issues in NBA 2K15.

With the release of NBA 2K15, the team at 2K Sports and Visual Concepts promised a much improved experience when connecting online. After NBA 2K14 suffered with connectivity issues throughout most of the game's life cycle, we were told that 2K's top engineers had spent the entire NBA 2K15 development cycle working on network infrastructure. What has been delivered, at least so far, is nothing short of a disaster.

Attempts to connect to the 2K servers and to other users have been met with nothing but frustration through the first two weeks of the game's release. While the experience has been fraught with frustration, it has slowly began to improve over the last week.

However, major issues still persist.

We're a couple of weeks into the NBA 2K15 experience, and while we still have some major issues going on within the game, many of you are no doubt playing several possible modes within the game.

We asked our staff which mode is their favorite and getting their most playtime up to this point, be sure to add your own response in the comments!

The NBA 2K15 servers are apparently online and working, according to the official page, but many PlayStation 4 (some Xbox One) users in the OS community and Twitter, including myself, have been having issues connecting to them, some have had this same issue since Monday.

On the PlayStation 4, you can hit the "Triangle" button to manage your files, by hovering over the MyCAREER tab. While that does resolve the issue for some users, it doesn't work for everyone. If you can't connect to the servers, you have no access to MyTEAM.

While this is a major concern for those that are affected, there are others that have lost VC and 2K Support hasn't exactly been helpful. Maybe the upcoming patch will fix these issues, maybe not. The only real details that have been revealed deal with users getting booted out of The Park.

Here are just a few comments on Twitter, please post what you are seeing.

EA Sports has finally released another NHL 15 roster update. The last update was way back on September 3rd. They also released a new tuner update, details below.
  • Overall tuning pass for goal scoring balance.
  • Goalies will be weaker when forced to move more and/or when they end up in desperation saves. (goalie reaction/awareness tuning)
  • Puck carriers are now more accountable for being in control before shooting for better accuracy. (puck control/shot accuracy tuning)
  • High percentage scoring areas will be more advantageous to shoot from than when forced to shoot from bad angles. (shot accuracy and goalie reaction tuning)
Fire up those consoles and post your thoughts.

EA Sports has posted another NBA Live 15 video today showing off the defensive improvements in the game. They also posted some additional details a new blog. It doesn't appear as though many changes were made at all to the defensive adjustments at first glance, I'd have to pull up NBA Live 14 to be sure, but the video does show improvement.

UPDATE: All of the defensive adjustments are the same as NBA Live 14, I just pulled it up to be sure. With that said, you can see some improvements from the defense in the video, just wished they would have showed some real 5 on 5 gameplay.

If you missed the offensive improvements video, you can view it here.

Watch the video, read the blog and post your thoughts.

New week, new Operation Sports FanDuel fantasy football league. It's $5 to enter again in week 7, and first place wins $75. Click here to join.

OperationSports Member Chucklesbiscotti cruised to a 7 point win in week 6, thanks to a very solid lineup that included some of the day's best picks. Matt Forte, Brandon Oliver, and Mohammed Sanu had standout performances for him. Had Chuckles entered this team into the Sunday $1.75 Million tournament, he would've finished in 630th out of 82,000 teams, good for a $300 payday.

Sweettouch finished in 2nd place, carried by a strong day by an off-the-radar selection, Cam Newton.

Here's the week 6 champ Chuckles' lineup, which was good for a cool $75 first place prize.


Here's the link for week 7's league. Good luck!

Rumors were swirling this morning and unfortunately, those rumors are true. The official Twitter account just announced Project CARS will be delayed until March 17, 2015.

Read the full press release below.

PROJECT CARS RE-SCHEDULED FOR MARCH 2015

Slightly Mad Studios and BANDAI NAMCO Games America Inc. today announced they will be moving the release of Project CARS for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC to March 17, 2015.

The move positions the title away from the competitive holiday scene dominated by household names while affording the team at Slightly Mad Studios additional time to extend and polish their ground-breaking and accomplished next-gen racing experience that’s been created alongside a community of over 85,000 racing fans and real-life professional drivers.

“Our goal has always been to deliver a landmark title that encompasses the wishes and desires of racing fans from all around the world; something with features and content powered by the community that provide a truly unforgettable and pioneering experience” said Ian Bell, Head of Studio at Slightly Mad Studios. “Whilst a tough decision to make, the change in release date allows the game the greatest chance of success and visibility, and the opportunity to polish the game even further to the high standards that both ourselves and our community demand and expect. We’re eager for you all to see what we’ve been working on in just a few months.”

Project CARS aims to deliver the most authentic, beautiful, intense, and technically-advanced racing game on the planet. Crowd-funded by a passionate community that has been involved in the development process from day-one to create their ultimate racing experience, Project CARS includes the largest track roster of any recent racing game, a huge variety of motorsports to play, a freeform and authentic career mode, world-class graphics and handling, dynamic time of day & weather, and a suite of community features and connectivity that leave the competition behind in the dust.
