    Hopefully some NBA live 18 five on five videos leak out but I doubt it.

    Like I said it really doesn’t matter to me but I just wanna quench my boner with some NBA live gameplay.

    whether the game is good or not is your opinion

    it’s a day one buy if it does get released and for the first time I won’t purchase NBA 2k unless beluba chills with the Shot meter changes seemingly every fucking week. again like this year. I’ve really grown out of nba 2k gameplay it’s the same and 2k is only catering to it’s E league My park my player crowd at this point. blacktop was my favorite mode since NBA 2k3 when it was called streed mode and they don’t even let you pick your court anymore it’s just the same generic court over and over again I miss when 2k actually cared about gameplay but they just wanna cater to the My team my park eleague crowd. if beluba had chilled with the shot tweaks cause NBA 2k17 at launch shot was perfect the step back Jumper was great even though it was cheese if not I’ll probably play Madden more with frostbite since Pasta loves that game.

    Also pasta can you talk about why the xbox one patch for NBA Playgrounds and I think the Switch hasn’t gone live yet? it’s been a week and a half since it released on PS4.

    • There’s really no info on those beyond the certification process dragging along on both. The patch has been submitted to MS & Nintendo but it’s probably just seen as low priority, while Sony tends to turn the testing around quickly.
