Thanks Beluba!

Looks like we have new control mechanics for both the fake pass and give and go.

Not sure what to think about the fake pass change, but I'm intrigued about the give and go. Sounds pretty intuitive.

EDIT: Didn't see that we can now fake pass off the dribble! Yes! That mechanic makes more sense now.

When doing a moving fake pass, you have to pass or shoot before the animation ends or you'll lose the ball.

this is good news. Do we have any video footage of this move being executed? As far as fake passing on the drive in momentum and not a canned animation?

With the drive and kick game looking good this year, that fake pass will make for some nice highlights

Maybe next year we'll be able to click in the right analog stick to push the ball forward to split the defense off of the pick and roll.

Re: NBA 2K14 Advanced Controls (PS3, X360)

Another thing I want to call your attention to that we haven't talked about at all is the Escape Cross and Hes.

One glaring omission from 2K13 was the ability to do standing sizeup moves that created any space. All of the sizeup moves last year were literally standing in place. When you hold Turbo and tap the RS left, right, or back, you'll do crosses, hesis, and stepbacks that actually take you a step or two in the direction you're pushing the stick. It's really nice to be able to throw these moves into the mix when you're breaking down your defender. You can also break out of them at any time so you can create your own rhythm and explode to the hoop when you see an opening.

When I got these moves in, that's when I decided to kill off the 1-step pullups. Rather than having canned shot animations with built in dribble moves, you now have full control to create those types of sequences on the fly. Allows you to be much more creative on offense and also allows you to keep your dribble live until a shot or drive opportunity opens up.
