NBA 2K14 News Post


2K Sports and Machinima streamed NBA 2K14 at 4:00 PM EST this afternoon. You can watch the stream now archived at the following link: Click here to open stream in a new tab.

We saw Oklahoma City and Houston played on sim settings as Chris Manning (@LD2K) talking through different features in the game.

After watching the game played on the stream, it definitely appears NBA 2K14 is a step forward for the franchise in a good way. The defenses are much better this year, but not so much so that they overpower the offenses. If you play good offense you will still score plenty of points. Blocks were nowhere near overdone from what I could tell, and the new play in the lane was a subtle improvement. There were some passes which were a bit crazy/odd -- but that's one of those things I'm very willing to forgive.

The shot percentages look much better, and the overall look of the game looks definitely improved. This isn't a complete overhaul, but there are subtle improvements across the board and the gameplay appeared much more balanced overall. My biggest gripe was the lack of fouls called in the game -- I'm hoping that's not a typical thing. Regardless, the game looked very impressive overall.

NBA 2K14 releases October 1 for current gen consoles.

Nice block there on Lin. Looked like something that would actually happen.

Late release, late release, late release, late release, brick, brick, brick, brick, late release, late release....brick. Otherwise looks quite a bit smoother, especially dribbling and finishing at the rim.

Not much of an answer between PC version and console....

That ball is a lot more live than it is in the past...

2k14 Asik would've put back dunked that instead of rebounding....nice!

The guy playing as Houston need to release the shot a bit quicker....

LOL, they're rushing the paint and getting their **** blocked consistently.

I bet he though he was slick. Everyone knows the PC version got shafted again. Wish they would be honest about it.

LOL at the Lin dunk...

Dude using the rockets is cheesy spammy as heck. "Let me run around with one person and not worry about fatigue" Guy..Hes probably never played bball in his life..
 
# 11 rockchisler @ 09/23/13 04:28 PM
Hey Harden, Why are you jumping for the block after the ball is in the hoop???
 
# 12 Sinner @ 09/23/13 04:29 PM
Nice little animation there for Lin receiving the pass and looking like he wasn't expecting it...nice little touch. Something about the animation for some of the passes out of the post look a little off to me. Defense looks nice especially on some of these blocks of players driving to the basket

Wonder what level they're playing on. From what I saw, seemed like the guys had problems playing; scoring was at a minimum/looked ugly. If the game is over the top defense because of people complaining about online play, could turn off a number of people off.

ANybody on here asking questions? ASK LD ABOUT THE DEMO!
 
# 15 thedream2k13 @ 09/23/13 04:37 PM
success rate of fullcourt passes is way to high wow. Nice to see durant not shoot 90% though
 
# 16 noshun @ 09/23/13 04:39 PM

# 17 rockchisler @ 09/23/13 04:42 PM

At the start of the vid he said they are on Superstar Sim. He wanted them to play on that difficulty because he said every online game mode will be on Superstar Sim. I believe he said that would include My Team and online ranked quick matches.

Defense looks on point. I like what I see with the paint contact.
 
# 20 sniapeko @ 09/23/13 04:52 PM
No wonder Gators used to play Lakers/Clippers. He's the classic cheeser.
The game looks good. I'm still unsure if it's worthy to buy.
And I think they're skipping the questions about the demo release date
