    Posted April 24th, 2015 at 2:30 pm 1 Comment »
    With the news yesterday regarding Spike Lee's role with NBA 2K16 being related to the MyCareer, Rich Grisham and I got together to discuss reactions and potential ramifications. How could 2K16 benefit from Lee's influence and what might that mean for the mode? ...
  • Spike Lee Playing Big Role in Shaping NBA 2K16 MyCareer; Tagline is “Be The Story”
    Posted April 23rd, 2015 at 12:00 pm 27 Comments »
    In March the New York Post mentioned that Spike Lee was in San Francisco working on an NBA video game-related project, which obviously meant it was NBA 2K16, and now Polygon is reporting more on his involvement. The official tagline for 2K16 is "Be the Story" and "A Spike Lee Joint" apparently will appear on the cover. The latter is at least preferable to whoever put together the soundtrack being promoted there. Lee is working with 2K on MyCareer Mode which seems like a natural fit to ...

    Posted April 17th, 2015 at 1:30 pm 2 Comments »
    Though there are a number of compelling series in the first round of the NBA Playoffs not many observers are anticipating upsets to take place. To get an idea for what is to come from another angle I turned to NBA 2K15 to simulate the entirety of the first round. An extensive amount of time was spent having the CPU play the CPU for every game in each series while utilizing the latest updated rosters. Based on the sim only one series will go seven games and that's the 4v5 in the Eastern Co...
  • NBA 2K15 Week 24 Ratings Changes
    Posted April 8th, 2015 at 2:00 pm 3 Comments »
    Though the frequency of NBA 2K15 roster updates has diminished over the months significant changes are still being made. Recently, following the realization that shot percentages had become too high after the latest patch, a global change was made to compensate by reducing the mid-range and three point shooting ratings for every player in the game by eight points. Outside of the critical decision to drop the shooting ratings plenty of others have been adjusted through a handful of roster...

    2K Sports today reactivated the servers for NBA 2K14 following light being shone on the problems created in their absence. Those who had MyCareer and MyGM saves will now be able to resume playing them. The company also declared that from now on servers will remain up for 18-27 months. That will bring them more in line with EA Sports who leaves servers up for at least two years. SCEA becomes is the outlier, with plans to shut down MLB 14 servers in June - just 13 months after release of th...
