cant wait to hear more about the association. hopefully we can either create a draft class or import draft classes from ch2k8. is the dna stuff the same thing nba live is doing?

Ohhhhhh hell yeah!

5 on 5? done!

New depth to Franchise! Uber done!

Mid air changes with shot stick! Done! (hopefully well)

Now we just need a career mode. Hopefully that comes out but I doubt it at this point.

To be honest..nothing MIND BLOWING..but liking the shot stick advancement and the online features, want to hear more about those...I think there should be a way where playing in leagues shows on your VIP and such, cause like I said, the best 2k ballers play mostly in leagues

Player DNA?

Sounds great! I'm happy for you, guys (next-gen owners).

Right, and im guessing the above poster wouldn't have said nothing mind blowing had they went into depth about that..

Im curious about it though what they mean

Let me find out it is the same as Live's. Well I wont say it as if 2K stole it from Live but I wonder if it is the same thing
 
# 8 Mintsa @ 07/18/08 12:24 PM
5 on 5 was takin right out of live 08, but it should be really sweet to play it with 2k.

cant wait.

Hmmmm... lemme know DC. Im sure they have some kind of twist on it because I doubt they paid a company like synergy to do this

Adaptive A.I. always has the potential to be mind blowing if its implemented well.

Player Personalities, Player Roles, Ambitions can do a lot for the Association mode as well.

I am calling it now. Whoever is on my team, I don't have en ego. I will controll DeSegana Diop, Dampier, Turiaf, Maxiell, or any non scoring player. I will rebound ansd hustle and set screens. I don't need the ball. I am a team player.

Competition.

You gotta love it!

These two development teams are battling it out with these feature lists...

The 2K basketball team is the one set of sports developers who I give the benefit of the doubt to. I've got to image that some of the guys who worked on CHOOPS 2K8 moved over to the NBA game during this game cycle.

If they were able make even incremental improvements from what we saw from post patch CHOOPS 2K8 in terms of A.I., then I'm expecting it to be it to be quite nice.

i will always pick the point guard unless playing with the cavs...im a pass first player and all i do is try to get assists, even when playing with lebron...i basically will play how i do in real life, be the floor general...

you're only assuming jf.
 
# 17 orrkl2002 @ 07/18/08 12:59 PM
Well EA said they were going to have a feature that would change sports games as we know it, and this is a sports game too so it probably is the same Dna feature but with a few tweaks. Just the same as hotspots were last year, the same but tweaked by the competition. Im pretty sure Ea doesnt have exclusive rights to synergy(at least not yet).
 
# 18 B-Wills @ 07/18/08 01:15 PM
Nice! Man I can't wait for this one.
Can't wait to see more stuff on Association mode.

^^

I'm gonna guess that player DNA is sort of like NBA Street's create-a-player but probably more indepth. In NBA Street you took a couple NBA Players and morphed their heads together to create a new player, sort of like T-Mac and Kobe had a baby together or something.

But I'm gonna guess that they're gonna give us the ability to take different characteristics of each players face/body and make our own with it, finally. (I see you DC!)
