Again, sounds great, and looks good in an isolated setting, but show us how it effects a 5 on 5 game of basketball.

As soon as he said, "We dont want you to be sucked into anything" I immediately decided to buy this game. 2k is the guiltiest sports game ever in that regard.

Or he could've meant Live 10 since that was EA's last game and thats exactly what happened there since they had the defensive recovery ratings WAY too high.

Yea, he could've meant Live 10, but I was talking about 2k. Too many times in 2k they strip you of control with animations. Not saying that it wasn't prevalent in Live 10, but its a huge issue in 2k also.

I fixed that in my edits.. I remember Derek Fisher being like a high 80's almost in the 90s on recovery. Was ridiculous

True, I honestly dont think he was taking shots at anyone. He just pointed that out, and it made me think of the issues I face everyday playing 2k.

Yeah I understand... Id go into defense but I dont want to derail this thread or forum...

All remains to be seen for now

EA focusing to much on 1 on 1 for my tastes. More of Live's arcade feel?

I wish EA would focus more on the core of basketball than the showmanship and glamour of the game. Bouncetek I sounds good, but basketball is won by ball movement not 20 dribbles...dribbling is for the purpose to get from point a to b...dribbling is cool but that's how turnovers happen...that said I hope they put out a more than oh this is our 1st attempt at 4G...they had more than 2 years to deliver...then again maybe this is karma for having the NFL liscense.

What are you 65, dribbling is how turnovers happen lol. I am pretty sure turnovers happen because of bad basketball plays or errant mistakes such as poor passes, mishandeling the ball, offensive fouls, 3 seconds in the key. Having the ability to control the basketball does not mean it is focusing on showmanship, it is giving you an arsenal at your disposal. I remember in live 10 the handles were decent but the pick and roll scheme was even better. If anything 2k degenerates to star player 1 on 1 spam.

I still need to see actual 5-on-5 gameplay footage before I comment on NBA Live 14. Sure, the things discussed in the interview sound good, but I have to see how they work in the context of an actual game.

Totally agree. And it was because of the overbearing animations that 2K13 was the first NBA 2K game I didn't purchase since I first started buying games in the series with 2K3. And unless things change with the controls and animation, 2K14 will be the second.

At this point in time, I dont care about 2k. Im in the NBA Live forum and the last NBA Live that was released had this issue in a MAJOR way.

EA needs to worry about NBA Live not 2k..sheesh man

it's June, of course they won't be talking about 5 on 5 gameplay. The finals isn't even over yet. Don't gimme me that excuse of saying it was cancelled three years straight and we deserve info. They are testing and finalizing everything. Impatient ppl.

As long as the game looks better than that CGI video I think it has promise. It's way too early and I've seen and heard far too little about this game to make a decision. I was completely turned off by the CGI clip, so as long as the models and graphics aren't that poor of quality I'll continue to check in on Live 14.

^^^

I read an article that said Live looked better than 2k on next gen.
