Is it easier to time jumpshots now?

Since there's a practice, you can go in and learn each guys shots. Practice mode works really well for that type of issue.

Here's a lighting pic of Paul George, posted in spoilers to not clog the thread:

Pretty nice difference after all. I need to hook it back up on the projector instead of this Plasma, it over saturates the pic.

Maybe it is something that is more noticeable when your playing, but the looks a little washed out to me in comparison...less detailed...

any thoughts on passing\catching?

Downloading the patch now. Can't wait to try it out after class. Also I will most likely live stream once downloaded

What Raptors jersey did they add ? The 90's dino ones ?

If so, link up a pic or two (home/away). Id love to see them in next gen.

I want to say it's improved but not lag free. Let me know what you think after you try it out

Unless I'm missing an option somewhere, it looks like you are stuck using the over-the-shoulder "My Player" camera for Shootaround mode.

There also does not seem to be any way to change players without exiting out of the mode entirely and starting over.

More gameplay impressions please. Game speed seem a bit more fluidity ( i was hoping) ? I was hoping it would have been a little bit faster too. Any new options like game speed adjustments or sliders maybe? Any roster edits?
 
# 19 WTF @ 02/10/14 01:49 PM
That's right jyoung. Stuck with that camera angle. Stuck with the same player unless you exit and reenter Practice.

That said, I'm seeing a lot of different things during gameplay. Tim Duncan drew a double team in the paint, jumped and dropped off a "different" pass to Splitter for the easy finish.







Paul George Free Dunking in Practice mode.

Gameplay seems speed up a bit. I've seen fast breaks and passing be a bit more snappy thus far. I've played a few quarters with different teams, just checking out lighting and stuff.

I've not ventured into the settings to check on the sliders, but if they were there, I'm sure we would have been told about it. Game speed definitely feels good.
