Wow, what a day (Aug 10.2012) for bball gaming information. i just read the article ( http://www.gameinformer.com/games/nb...-nba-2k13.aspx )on NBA 2K13, and 25 things that are supposedly in the game now; and it was some of the most hyped up stuff i have heard in awhile. If all those things are implemented into this years game, i feel it will be the end of the LIVE series!
What will LIVE have left to hang their hats on? SERVERS?
I am pretty much an offline guy, so that wouldnt matter to me much; but there isnt much that EA can say we are going to do better (than 2K), other than copy the game script for script!
I was a big EA LIVE gamer for one reason and one reason only; the dribble stick, and shot buttons, and this was the best feeling for me and NBA LIVE 10. I played that game soo much over 2K10, and a little into 2K11, until i got used to the iso-motion in 2K and the lack of appeal for LIVE 10 and their roster update (which, "EA" provided because of NBA-delete 11).
The news of Mike Wang bringing over a tidbit of that EA dribble feeling has me on cloud NINE right now; and because of this, i dont see myself playing LIVE at all, unless they come out with something that will knock my socks off! (or cheap as hell, "$20 or less")
This news has to be ringing in EA's ears right now; as i believe they dont have much else to go on right now (actually nothing shown); with all the bad press they received from E3 2012.
EA's NBA LIVE series could be put to rest early this year!
