NBA 2K14 News Post


Dime Magazine has posted their NBA 2K14 hands-on preview.

Quote:
The block system has been completely revamped for NBA 2K14 with improved ball targeting and awareness, more realistic physics, and more responsive control. At one point, we were playing Andrea Bargnani, who recovered towards the rim and blocked LeBron James. That might be the only time you read a sentence like that, so savor it Knicks fans.

I REALLY hope this is player introductions!

"Jadakiss blared for the New Orleans Pelicans introductions at the beginning of the second game we tried. Those introductions are pretty cool, and definitely make you feel like you’re about to watch a spectacle despite it being on quick game mode without some of the more advanced features."

i feel like this is a stupid question but i couldn't find the answer:

did 2k say when ps4/xbone 2k14 will be released? is it a console release title? because if ps4 drops nov 15th then i might possibly be able to wait a month.

other than that, i am excited. bummed i'm not hearing much about myplayer/association changes but i'm hoping next gen will have those since

i will always be in favor of more solid gameplay enhancements vs new features/modes. take my money!

I know 2k14 will be a release title on ps4, so I assume it will be for Xbone as well

Yes, 2K14 will be launch day titles for both consoles.

i've really been trying to not be excited about ps4/2k14 but it's just not looking like i can unhype myself now.

Could be nothing more than what you get now except you get some too short song or some Jay Z song

Is it just me or is it really hard to see what they are talking about (in this hands on preview) in the Gamescom gameplay vids?

There may be a reason why (Gamescom is an early build etc) - if that's the case, great..... if not, I must be missing something when I watch them....

The hands on impressions are all terrific reads, very encouraging. Then I watch the vids and we get Danny Green driving without a worry or any sort of contact, no pick and roll rotating defenses, the same spacing as 2K13 at a quick glance.....

Again, if those vids are early builds, I hope someone corrects me....haha..... then I can sleep at night again.....

While attempting to split double-team off a pick-and-roll, Jrue Holiday got tripped up, and it looked incredibly authentic as he stumbled forward before the whistle blew.
Not going to lie when I saw "split" and "pick and roll" in the same sentence, I got excited, then I saw "double team"

I dont trust hands-ons. I only believe in my eyes and in what they saw in the vids

This is most probably the case, I'm just hoping, as I do every year

In that case I'd just ignore all the previews and just wait for the reviews.

I suppose I get what you're saying.... I like to read the impressions and then look for the point outs in the vids....

The impressions were quite encouraging in this Dime Mag preview.... but I just want to see examples....

DaWolf's impressions were very interesting - I found he gave it to us real without any "over excited sugar coating"......

Does anyone know what the Gamescom build is? I don't know a lot about development etc. Would the game have to be finished by now with a month til launch? If so, would they still send an incomplete build to Gamescom to keep certain additions in the back pocket?
