With the new shoe creator feature 2K13 will add to this years game, what possible past or present (Basketball) kicks are you planning on re-making for that nostalgia ultra moment. Just the thought alone of a feature like this for a in depth gamer like myself seem to good to be true. I also hear that your works of art will be uploadable for others to judge & rank. It seems kind of silly for them not to be downloadable also for others to wear (more on that later i guess). Who knows, with a feature like this you might become the next Tinker Hatfeild (Google him) of shoe design. But really, this all could just be wishfull thinking on my part, with no real knowledge of the design limitations and functions of this at all, i guess we'll just have to wait and see. But in the mean time, don't let this stop your imagination from running wild. I even thought of a way 2k can one up themselves on the sneaker side of things, by introducing player/brand (shoe) packs for legends. Ok now, here me out.... we all know Jordan is the #1 basketball shoe brand ever 2nd maybe to only it's former parent company NIKE. So how do you expand on that, after already introducing Jordan and all of his classic history making & marking designs into the world of video gaming?
Well.......simple.......you give us more legendary kicks worn & made famous by the biggest names in basketball history. For instance the (Reebok Brand Pack) will include Shaq/Shawn Kemp/Iverson/etc. (Nike Brand Pack) will include "Penny"/Pippen/Barkley/GP/etc. With (BONUS PACKS) including shoes like the "Reebok Pump"/ "Nike Blazer" / "Nike Air Force" oldschools + the ones Rasheed Wallace rocked with the strap in the back" and others like it that were great but not made just for one player in particular. And to make it interesting, instead of just giving away the shoes in DLC or codes (although the bonus packs could be) how about making it into a Blacktop Challenge where you have to play each legend 1 on 1 or 5 on 5. For example, you could use your "My Player" to challenge them or any other player i guess. Each win unlocks only 1 pair of kicks at a time and if you win after the first game the legend player gets to call another legend up as a teammate for 2 on 2 and this goes up to 5 on 5. You cant use any legend players on your team only current players in the NBA today. If you win you get to choose what pair you want until you collect them all but if you loose the legends get the sneakers (of there choice) back. This should help keep the Blacktop mode interesting for a while and even gives it something to build upon. If you had a choice besides creating your own, what other kicks would you like to see make a comeback in 2k13?
