  1. There was no footage of the Raptors, the 2019 NBA Champs, and only a 2 second clip of Kawhi dunking on them lmao the disrespect continues even after winning the title.
    Man that looks a lot better to me overall.. But I'm a bit worried the shots will still be a bit clunky looking.. The video was kinda choppy during all the shooting motions so it made it hard to tell, but that Jimmy Butler shot looked a bit off. 2K, IMO, has really missed the mark on fluid looking/feeling shooting forms on the last couple of games now.
    Most impressive part for me was the off ball movement from Curry. Perhaps we finally have some off ball movement fakes like we seen there on our mycareer players.
    I remain generally unmoved.
    Wasn't there a time when the Momentous Trailer used to be the first actual look at the new 2K? Guessing it takes him until well past the beginning of August to compile all the necessary footage.
    I came away from this one feeling the same way after watching the 2K19 trailer last year. Just kind of... yep, it's 2K, and players are making faces a lot.
    First thing I noticed was that Kawhi looks awful. His shoulders specifically are just super generic looking and not even close to the size of them in real life. His face is also too rounded.
    Uniforms are still super baggy, especially the shorts. Graphically, it was just meh for me. It looks like 2K19 in all the places I had complaints.
    There were a few nice things. I liked KD getting off the bus; maybe some updated pregame presentation? That also gives me a minuscule amount of hope for a better halftime/postgame show.
    Like someone else said, seeing Curry do some fake cuts off the ball is promising. Hopefully all offball movement will be improved.
    Other than that, pretty much looks like 2K19. Gotta see some actual gameplay.
    Agree for Leonard who appears tiny and looks odd. His shoulders are completely wrong and the face needs to be rescanned. For me the worst superstar looking in game.

    Yeah his shoulders definitely should be wider. Also KD's arm are too short. Dude had a 7'6 wingspan... That said, I'm not gonna be too picky about graphics & player models being that Next Gen will be here next year.

    Just spotted the updated Russ. Looks pretty good.

    im one of the very few people on earth who cares about it this much , but they didn't really update russ they just basically gave him a new hairstyle on the face he's had since 2k15
    glad they gave beal a new scan tho that was wayyyyy overdue

    Only Bulls highlight was the new jumbo-tron aka cash considerations :)

    lmaooo so you're saying they traded jordan bell for a new scoreboard . hope it was worth it:lol:
    Trailer looks like a Trailer...I'm starting to see some LIVE forum members in here, so I bet that influx of, "LIVE isn't releasing until God Knows when so I'm going to Nitpick 2K to death" crowd will be in the 2K forums until release. Oh Joy.

    We'll have the scoreboard for years to come, Jordan Bell signed w/ Minny this offseason if I'm not mistaken.
    GarPax was playing 4D chess. No, I don't really believe that.

    The courts are larger too, look at the size of the post that A.D. ran into.

    Seems like you've convinced yourself that the courts are bigger. :santa:
    I recommend watching this at .25 speed to see all the details. Things I noticed:
    AD interacting with the post during the game
    KD interacting with opposing bench during the game
    VanFleet updated
    Blake Griffin updated
    Beal updated
    Aaron Gordon updated
    Westbrook hair updated(not certain on face though)
    Dame Dolla looks photo realistic!
    Deandre Jordan, KD, Curry look untouched
    2k please adjust Kawhi and Westbrook body types as they aren't malnourished children
    Still excited as I enjoyed 2k19 alot

    Still the same engine and graphics from previous versions. I didn't really see anything noteworthy to be honest with myself.

    Did you really think they'd change the graphics and engine a year away from a new console generation?
    Because if you did I have a deal on some oceanfront property in Kansas I'd love to talk to you about.

    Why try and start something lol?
    Anyways I appreciate both games played a crazy amount of both last year and one thing I noticed that I did like that Live did and it looks like 2k has worked on is the interaction with the stanchion and the front row of the crowd. There was a lot of clipping that happened in 2K19.

    This. No respect at all from 2K. Where was Siakim, Lowry, Ibaka? One of the more exciting players in the league and in the playoffs.
    Ah well. **** em!
    All that counts is that "We The North" and "We The Champions" BABY!!! :caflag:
    I want chips and dip!
    Let all of them hate on us.
    There's only one way to deal with disrespect like this.

    "Gameplay" Trailer :lol::lol::lol:
    With no competition, this is all they have to do but just call things what they are. It was a nice Updated Rosters trailer but that was not actual gameplay and like an abusive relationship, we're coming back for more regardless.

    Yeah, this definitely was not a gameplay trailer.
    It should have been called the end of the play replay camera trailer.
    There was no actual gameplay.
    They should just call the screenshots with overalls on them, in-depth player details, to be consistent.

    Talk about respect. Didn't you see Kawhi straight dunking on the Raps?:lol: I'm sure one of their next trailers will be something with more Raptors love.
    The sweat is completely unrealistic it looks like they have Crisco all over their face.
    KD looks like he's an alien, everything we saw we know that's not in the game, the game will never look like that.
    I would like to see a real camera real footage but that will probably come next week.
    I already pre-ordered it still love 2K hopefully they tone down the VC crap.
    People are saying oh they're probably going to eliminate VC well sorry if you look at the packages that you can buy the more you spend the more VC you get.
    Hopefully, they don't cater to the silly neighborhood crap, we need to simulate basketball on the court, not people's personal lives.
    If we can get back to 2K 14 level of gameplay and Innovation we'll be good.

    Well there's a whole community working on fixing this very thing all the time, it's just that 2K doesn't really care about that lol. If they did, all they would have to do is use the community's work :nocomprende: ...

    Things I seen in the trailer.
    Good, bad, and questions.
    :09 Kawhi looks really off. His shoulders aren’t broad enough and his face seems round or fat.
    :13 and :44 Diving loose ball animations still slide. In 2k19 most of these would take you straight out of bounds. Let’s hope there’s a good medium found. Plus if you have control of the ball and are moving and sliding, isn’t it a travel?
    :16 New (returning) off ball offensive moves. Welcome back!
    :17 Behind the back into shamgod. More OP dribble moves? It also looks like you will still be moved on defense by the dribble moves regardless if you make any controller inputs.
    :20 I hope this contest on the Kawhi layup is called a foul. The defender makes all kinds of contact.
    :24 The Kylie carry move makes its return and this time in an NBA game. Again it looks like the defender will be moved because of the dribble move and not stick input.
    :28 The trailing defender seems oblivious to what’s happening right in front of him as Zion dunks. And the defender that should have helped, instead turns to face the opposite end of the court.
    :30-35 Contested shots/right stick hands up defense seems to still be delayed.
    :38 AI defense is again very late to defend the dunk.
    :41 The defender appears to still be moved out of the way to allow the animation to play out. And again slow to react to the dunk.
    :48-49 Landing against the stanchion seems odd from that dunk angle. Will this and the KD in the bench (:51-52)be a problem taking you out of the play as in previous 2k’s?
    :59 Will hook shots be a viable offensive option in 2k20?
    1:03-1:05 Will blocks be better and more realistic this year?
    1:07 I hope that dunks and layups that draw contact will actually get a whistle this year. At least some times.
    1:09 Another very late shot contest. The defender doesn’t even react until the ball is released.
    1:12 The defense is lost again. There are 3 defenders within the restricted area, 2 with their backs to the dunker and the other doesn’t even react until the ball is dunked. I also hope they fixed that only one person can contest a shot at a time. If you go up on 3 people you should have nearly a ZERO % chance to make the shot.
    1:14 I’m pretty sure that this block should be a foul. AD sticks his off hand right into Greens chest to block the shot. That’s an NBA foul nearly 100% of the time.

    Jesus this place has gone off the deep end. How could anybody tell that much from that trailer.
    I’m not saying there will be no legacy issues but man, why watch again if it makes you feel that negative. Didn’t seem constructive just a guy having a moan on a message board.
    At this point we kind of know what we are getting until next gen. I have fun with the game but I’m an offline player. Nice to know people at 2k cafe with guys like the Czar.
    Hmmm I wonder if takeover is coming back. Because you know how much I love that elbow to the face offensive foul from a post scorer with takeover activated.

    It's that time of the year again. Not sure if it's like this with other sports games but when it comes to 2K these fans go deep when it comes to analyzing every bit of info released. Not judging anyone that is critical it just not my thing. I have other things to worry about and more enjoyable things to do than to deconstruct a trailer for a game.
    But in regards to the trailer, it looked good but it's hard for me to really get hyped by these trailers anymore. I'm excited that it's that time of the year when info is trickling out, trailers are releasing, and the game is just around the corner but I feel like these highlight reels are kind of the same thing every year. Unless there is a huge graphical upgrade, like 2k14's trailer (I could not stop rewatching those trailers), or a noticeable gameplay improvement it's hard to get hyped just by seeing 2k highlights. Even old 2k trailers still look good.
    Hopefully we'll get insight into gameplay soon. For me that's what's important and most interesting each year.

    I’m not sure if you know this, but there’s a pause button, a rewind and fast forward feature, and even a feature to slow down the play speed.
    I watched the video exactly 1 time before making my post using those options and all of those thing are easily noticeable if you watch the trailer.
    So if you think that my comments were negative, that’s on you. I simply stated what was shown in the trailer, you’re welcome to refute any of my statements.
    Instead, you complain about my post because you think that I’m complaining and then talk about being constructive.
    Most of my post was me asking questions because we don’t really know, pointing out things that “appear” to be returning serious issues from 2k19 and previous years, and things that I hope are changed. ✌️

    Offline players are living in a different world than most of the community, they don't get the gripes because they can just edit the hell out of their CPU bots until the gameplay is smooth (easy) enough for them.
    So that was the gameplay video everyone was waiting for? Lol and ppl tho it was a trailer for the real gameplay video lol. Ppl will always lie to themselves and hype it up to convince it is a must buy every year.

    Come on 2k vets you know when marketing says game-play they mean "sizzle" trailer. It is the same every year. Game-play will almost never mean what you want it to mean on Aug 1st.
    Like they really going to release some 5v5 raw game-play for you guys to analyze to death this early? Y'all will have all the casuals running for the hills before anyone can even play the thing. :cheers444:cheers444
    If you scour the earth for anything related to 2k news I'm fairly certain marketing is not targeting you with anything they put out. LOL.
    Also just an FYI and you didn't hear this from me:splat: but I heard that marketing only wanted high level overviews so don't panic if you don't get a bunch of nuts and bolts info from marketing this year. We did all the same work we always do but I don't think you guys will hear about all the stuff we did that pertains to your audience.
    I of course will stream and talk about some of my stuff as soon as all the game-play info is released.
    Hope you all enjoy the game this year if you decide to pick it up.

    Would be so cool to have a gameplay blog :baby:
    Still no excuse not to feature the NBA Champions at all, and no, Kawhi and a tiny bit of Norm don't count. How weird would it be to have a 'sizzle' trailer the last few years and not feature GSW or the Cavs?

    Right? Dudes already deduced fake v-cuts from a 2 second clip so any subtle but important additions are gonna be child's play. "Whoah you guys see the 5-out motion" casuals that just wanna AndOne are gonna be like and get all scared to buy the game lol.

    God 17 looked HORRENDOUS lol. I know one of the devs (I think Czar) said they had a rough development cycle that year, but that dropoff in graphics from 16 was just insane.

    You know people are still going to buy it, I'll get it on PC as I've done since it's been on PC.
    And will never buy another console version. lol
    But I still own them all since NBA Action 95 to Now!!! Even the arcade 2K game I know you remember that Visual Concepts Arcade Basketball!

    Body types are still a mess imo. And although, it looks better than NBA 2K17, doesn't mean it looks good. Currently, it has a cartoonish look to it.

    I would be surprised if they keep that. You know what? No I wouldn’t because I thought after awhile they’d remove it from 2K19. Just amazing to me how they left in those animations that were blatant offensive fouls.

    Did the game live up to the trailer though? Never bought it but I know I was disappointed once I saw gameplay videos. Lighting and reflections seemed overdone, the courts were very low resolutions and the animations were a bit clunky.
    I expect to get the Gameplay deep dive blog tomorrow or sometime this week. Most likely will get MyCareer next week since the demo is in 2 weeks. And will probably get MyTeam info within the next 2 weeks .

    I thought 2k14 met expectations seeing the trailer. Both on the court and graphics and still has the best soundtrack. Gameplay was not as good as the graphics obviously.
    Also it was pretty bare boned for sure tho and you had limited replayability and the coaching features were again,. Limited.
    14 Also only let you save one custom roster? Really? One roster??
    It was definitely a show piece to show off the PS4 specs at launch. Gameplay is good. But 16 imo is still the best 2k this generation for gameplay .
    I just picked up 14 for my Xbox one. I found it used on Amazon for 5.00. Brings me back for sure.

    I just posted them because it seems like they're extra excited to share their stuff with us this year and we might be in for a big blog tomorrow. Not trying to cause any confusion.

    2k11 got me back into sports video games in general after like a near decade of not playing them. I'd say the trailers in the modern era (2011-2020) have all been good cinematic previews, though.
