    One of the bigger complaints with the design of NBA Playgrounds relates to the manner in which players are obtained. Playing the game leads to earning new card packs, but it's completely luck of the draw and at a certain point duplicates end up taking over the openings and frustration sets in if seeking one or more specific players. Some people may have received the player/s they wanted most right away and others may still be waiting for them to fall into their laps. Saber Interactive has...

    There's no doubt that 2K Sports has admirably invested in its franchise modes in recent years but the experiences between MyGM and MyLeague were not dramatically different besides the customization freedom given by the latter. With NBA 2K18 the MyGM mode is becoming more narrative-driven, making it more along the lines of the MyCareer player story mode but playing the role of general manager instead.  (more…)...

    While soundtracks in sports video games have taken on reduced importance in recent years, 2K Sports has continued to put considerable effort into using them to create additional buzz for upcoming NBA 2K games.

After years of headliners that supposedly helped to put together the playlists such as Jay-Z, Pharrell, Imagine Dragons and LeBron James, this year there's no big name fronting it. There are 50 songs on the NBA 2K18 soundtrack wi...
