The more I look at it, the more I think that Live looks better, but it's all about seeing it in motion. If 2K could take the small things, like the net, accessories, jerseys (and definitely how they fit), the lighting, and shoes, then 2K would have Live in a landslide. I'm still thinking that I'll get both though, just to keep the games fresher for longer, and again to support competition.

Some players in 2k still look weird.The screenshots for Live have looked better. I think 2k messes up because they always try to get player reactions in the game.

I felt the same way the other week; but then I thought about it for a minute; I have a bunch of other games I can play until they (EA) actually release something noteworthy about NBA LIVE 15. wait and see I guess! I am too old for this bleep! lol

Looking at this screenshot, it makes me wonder if this is the same team that worked on Live 14, and if it is, why does this year's game look so much better? How do you make the jump from last gen looking graphics to next gen in only a year?

My friend your pleas are falling on deaf ears. What did you say? Ha.

Yes Sir totally agree. Although I have lost my faith with EA, like many others, but you sir, still remain hopeful. Love it. EA see you still have some believers, but your following is running very thin.....

I think Live has 2k beat in different body types such as fat players & etc. But 2k has surpassed them in everything else lately. The pic of Live Lebron vs 2k Lebron was a total joke. And Live has been looking cartoonish. This year Live looks well but idk if they have graphics as good as 2k tho. They are good at some amall things but overall graphically 2k has passed them.

Neither looks bad, but Live definitely has 2k beat when it comes to little aesthetic things(which is actually been consistent through the years). They also seem to have a more believable lighting engine(isn't that different but it gives off a more photo-realistic look vs the plasticy look) Accessories & shoes has always been Live's thing and that hasn't changed. Not to mention they took it up a notch by scanning shoes in this year. They also use way more player models compared to 2k. That's why I fell in love with 2k on pc because I could fix all that was wrong. You can't even imagine how excited I am. about having a next-gen pc port.

I was thinking the same thing, because in the past, when you look at how the players move, 2K has been the better looking game, even in screenshots it's obviously top notch. EA to me though has always had the better representation of jerseys and how they fit, accessories, and definitely shoes. Both deserve a look, I may end up getting both (2K being the preference) but just to support competition.
bxphenom7 on August 28, 2014 at 02:15 PM.
I thought the bodies were fine in the 2k trailer. I think we should wait until we can compare models of the same player. Live deserves a look, I think every game does, even if I'm an EA skeptic. Competition is always a good thing.

Eh...it should be: "Although on the other hand it's the first such game on next-gen so I think I'll give it a try". Sorry
tss on August 28, 2014 at 06:18 AM.
Well, I think the same. To be honest, I feel a little disappointed by this demo. Graphics aren't everything, and you are right that after a longer time no one pays attention to it. It may be a good game but apparently I expected something else. Although on the other hand it's the first such game on next-gen so I think I'll give it. But I'll wait until the price drops.

Great points made here and I agree 100% it has become very hard to find reviews for games for last gen and next gen separately. It appears as though the reviewers don't want to waste to much time reviewing games for different versions almost as equally as they don't want to review games for different systems of any generation. This can cause the customers to buy the games thinking they are getting a game with the same features with slightly less graphics and they encounter a big surprise. The companies should have more courtesy to make things clear on that end.
Good write-up and you raise a lot of fair, balanced questions. With Madden 15, the little I had read led me to believe the new rear-defensive camera (similar to NCAA's player-lock) was in the 360/PS3 version. It wasn't until someone purchased the game and played it that I learned the camera, in fact, was not in the game.
Great post and I agree fully. It's nearly impossible to find which features apply to next gen or current gen. So with this upcoming 2k I have read that some new settings such as shot fatigue and the new shooting meter will be in the current gen versions. In reality, they should just put out a fact sheet on both versions of the game saying what will be in each version and what modes are touched.

OPFL stands for the Official Professional Football League. That doesn't exist either.
Also, AESN SPORTS is a fake company too.
I'd like to state that this blog is intended to be a joke. The before mentioned images, products, and companies are created to not promote any game or company. It was created to make a few laughs on an otherwise uneventful day.
The fake game consoles include: YBOX ONE, YBOX 360, MayStation 3, MayStation 4, Mintendi Miii, and the MayStation Nita. The corporations include: Mintendi, NicroSoft, and MiPhonic.
Here's the promotional poster for this game. For the YBOX and Maystation 4 game consoles. AESN SPORTS, its not in the game. In stores, today.
Here is a mock game cover art I made this morning. I figured you guys could laugh. Its called "OPFL FOOTBALL 15: Special Edition". AESN SPORTS its not in the game.

you did not close out the app properly I am sure.

I have been concerned about that as well. I have been turning off the console after each game. Going out of town this week, so I won't get my retail game until Friday. Cannot wait to open my MUT pro packs!

The game looks tight. Loving the offensive run outs and smooth transitions to O. And this is probably only Beta, can't wait *In my Bart Scott voice*

Even if you had a different view most people wouldn't watch the receivers anyways. The action is where the ball is. That is what people want to see. I understand if you moved the camera to like an endzone view or something you could see it all, but people for the most part would still just watch the ball.

thanks for sharing your sliders. I also have seen wimpy CPU offense. I am all about quick counts too.
I mean disrepect when I say this but please be quite.

I personally think the broadcasts do an excellent job of following the action. Broadcast views do illustrate how holes open up, how screens develop etc. the only plays where there is an issue is maybe with the deep pass. and even then there is enough time for the cameras to follow the action.
Maybe the NFL can offer more camera views for replays on deep passes. they could incorporate the traditional Madden view for some replays.or have helmet cams and make than an interactive feature in an online, on demand, live streaming type of feature.
I believe that the NFL network did experiment with this a few years ago.
ManiacMatt1782 on August 15, 2014 at 11:11 AM.
Thanks. But my reasoning isn't because I am tired of a view. My reasoning is because the viewer can see more in real time from this view. It just shows much more of the game.

Haven't there been 15+ games Kobe Brynat and Tim Duncan as younger players?

Thanks for the feedback, MA. I do look forward to doing more.

I have both consoles and prefer third party on the PS4. However, I wonder if there will be a shift for those that own both consoles to purchase the X1 version since, with Access, it saves your progress?

Also, with the PS Share I can but the X1 version for single player but can still play my PS friends without having to own a copy for the PS4. Interesting dynamic.
It is just you.

I see what you're saying & yea I remember those days in NCAA. Being a freshman qb & trying to win in Tuscaloosa with that crowd will rattle your composure immensely. And this sounds like, the idea you're proposing, something from the old superstar days when they implement roles for your player. Evidently, leadership was one of the roles & everyone one offense (depending your position) gets a boost in all of their offensive stats. This would benefit well & then the defense will obviously have a strong role too: such as tougher coverage & being able to disguise the coverage better.

All of that would be awesome.

^^ act as if the spelling was correct

Or, like what we are seeing now in the NBA with children of Legends in the league:
Klay Thompson
Tim Hardaway Jr.
Glen Rice Jr.

What about a player that is later drafted into the league as Kobe Bryant Jr., which has his game and physical likeness.

The same as now you have current players migrating towards coaching, the dna of these stars can evolve even further in their kids.

mp3 playback is essential for features like Sounds of the Show or custom music in NBA, Madden lots of games that had it last gen. I get that lots of people never utilizied these features but those of us that do, let me tell you it adds so much realism. I had the real walk up music for every player in the majors last gen. all real entrance, penalty, everything in NHl. every entrance in WWE was the real music. none of that is possible without mp3 playback.

I, as well as most people arent arguing that they shouldnt charge for PSPlus. I think its an incredible program and worth the money. I was simply saying how far Sonys mentality has changed. It was free for PS3 and now they are not only charging money for it (which I clearly agree they should) but they are also stiffling any competion to their programs. Thats a huge shift in Sonys game plan and honestly one that scares me.
Yea, why not? I mean they should just take EAs idea about that postponing retirement. I think it was in 09 & 10 where you able to use a power save or something like that & the player won't retire til after a year or two. The option will pop up before they retire & you get to use that option to keep them on the team of let them go. If someone remembers they can elaborate more on it.
Good read, good point, enjoyed the blog!
MAGboyswifT27 on August 13, 2014 at 09:16 AM.
At first it bugged me but I can see why EA would do it. Either way I'll still pick it up on the first day and I'm anxious for the game since I didn't have NCAA this year to keep me busy.
Lol, gone after one season? in my GM that fool kobe stuck around till like 40, guess it was all the rings he was winning. just like his number 1 over jordan. then i brought him in as an assistant coach.
