    With NBA 2K15 out next week naturally a lot of the recent news has been concentrated on the game. In today’s Daily Dish the focus centers on the player ratings for NBA 2K15 now known for the entire league and the odd marketing strategy that has left several modes shrouded in mystery even still. There’s also a look ahead to the next Madden NFL 15 roster update and a reminder to get entries in for the NBA 2K15 giveaway.

  • All NBA 2K15 Overall Player Ratings
    Posted September 30th, 2014 at 11:30 am 5 Comments


    It took over three weeks to do so but 2K Sports has finally finished revealing all the overall player ratings for NBA 2K15. Only one of the four players to be rated 90+ wasn’t confirmed until now and as expected it’s Chris Paul who comes in at 91. He joins LeBron James (98), Kevin Durant (95), and Tim Duncan (90) in that elite group.

    Six players follow at 89 overall including Kobe Bryant, Carmelo Anthony and Kevin Love. Continue on to check out all the overall ratings in the base roster of NBA 2K15!  Read more

  • Madden NFL 15 Week Four Upcoming Roster Update Discussion
    Posted September 30th, 2014 at 10:15 am 23 Comments


    EA Sports should really just name J.J. Watt as the Madden NFL 16 cover athlete. No need to go through a charade like the voting process was for Richard Sherman on Madden 15. No one is impacting the NFL like Watt is right now.

    One change at QB coming this week as the Bills sit E.J. Manuel in favor of Kyle Orton. We’re almost now to the point in the season where teams should get some upgrade or downgrade consideration as entire units based on performance compared to expectations rather than just singling out a few players here and there.

    In this week’s Madden NFL 15 roster update look for Philip Rivers, Teddy Bridgewater, Blake Bortles, Eli Manning, DeMarco Murray, Larry Donnell, Martellus Bennett, Travis Kelce, Steve Smith, Jarius Wright, Robert Ayers, C.J. Mosley, and Malcolm Jenkins to rise. Names likely to fall include Kirk Cousins, E.J. Manuel, Nick Foles, Tom Brady, Geno Smith, LeSean McCoy, Riley Cooper, Sammy Watkins, Kenny Vaccaro, and Jairus Byrd.

    For the first time in a very long time there was nothing newsworthy to write about today (that shouldn’t be the case throughout this week with NBA 2K15 still to announce features) so I tackle a few different topics with The Daily Dish. NBA 2K15 won’t have its servers turned on until next Tuesday and that’s reason for some concern, discussion has again been raised over how to best implement penalties in Madden, more top player ratings are out for NBA Live 15, and a reminder to enter in the NBA 2K15 giveaway!

    Closing out the third week with The Daily Dish is an examination of the first Online League details for NBA 2K15 and one scripted element of the game’s MyCareer mode that isn’t going over very well, the FIFA 15 mobile Companion App for Ultimate Team is available to download, and there’s a deal worth considering on the Xbox One version of Madden NFL 15.

  • First NBA 2K15 Online League Info
    Posted September 26th, 2014 at 10:45 am 25 Comments


    In the transition to the new generation of consoles the NBA 2K series lost its Online Association mode which was replaced with basic Online Leagues. The leagues in 2K14 lacked the necessary admin options and tools for any to be successful and server issues sealed the deal on a mangled and virtually useless mode. Even simple settings like quarter length and difficulty levels couldn’t be adjusted! An online-based MyGM or MyLeague mode appears unlikely to materialize in the near future but instead 2K Sports did work on making the Online Leagues at least somewhat more viable for NBA 2K15.

    Online Leagues will now allow for adjustable season length, number of teams (including CPU controlled teams), difficulty levels, quarter length, and number of games in the playoff series and NBA Finals. Remember leagues are just a single season – unlike Online Franchise there is no draft, free agency, player progression/regression and so on. The ability to import a custom roster to start with in a league remains and hopefully it works this year because it didn’t in 2K14 as there is no Fantasy Draft option. Commissioners can also reset the results of games.

    It was inexcusable to release an Online League structure last year that was so poorly designed and then no attempts were made to improve on it through post-release support. While some of the required options for a league to potentially do well are now in hand with 2K15 a lot will again depend on whether the online servers can finally prove to be reliable. Various issues with Online Franchise in Madden NFL 15 and MLB 14: The Show have damaged those modes immensely and the NBA 2K franchise has a history of being unable to provide a stable online experience.
