  • Details on all that’s coming to MyGM and MyLeague with NBA 2K16
    Posted August 19th, 2015 at 12:15 pm 17 Comments »
    Up until now, most of what has been learned about NBA 2K16 have come from leaks, and with just over a month now until the game releases 2K Sports is reaching the point where they'll be announcing and expanding on details related to those previously discovered features. First up was the info on the 2K Pro-Am and now attention turns to franchise modes with MyGM and the introduction of MyLeague Online. MyLeague Online takes what was a highly customizable offline franchise that debuted in...
  • Which Pro-Am from the upcoming NBA games is the most intriguing?
    Posted August 18th, 2015 at 11:15 am 8 Comments »
    NBA 2K16 and NBA Live 16 don't share a lot in common in terms of the modes they'll be offering up, but they do have one that is not just similar in nature but share the same name: Pro-Am. The 2K Pro-Am takes the place of last year's Jordan Rec Center, and continues with 5-on-5 (every player can be controlled by a different user or some spots taken by CPU) and NBA rules. Leaderboards and matchmaking have been added - no more time wasted waiting in "Got Next" spots! However the biggest new...
  • Live Pro-Am announced for NBA Live 16; Part of mid-September demo
    Posted August 13th, 2015 at 8:30 am 29 Comments »
    It may be coming one year too late to take full advantage of an opening presented by the competition, which will now be offering up a similar mode by the very same name late next month, but the announcement of Live Pro-Am for NBA Live 16 is a significant one. The Pro-Am encompasses two different modes: Live Run and Summer Circuit. EA Sports had been hinting at Live Run making a comeback since June. It returns six years after it was a popular mode of play in NBA Live 10. Unlike adidas Live...

The '99 B...
  • First look at the 2K Pro-Am for NBA 2K16
    Posted July 30th, 2015 at 5:45 pm 18 Comments »
    If it weren't for the unprecedented leaks regarding the feature set of NBA 2K16, virtually nothing about the upcoming game would have been known even with August quickly approaching. There hasn't been much of anything official, not even a screenshot. Finally 2K Sports announced something today to do with the game, and its the Pro Am mode which had its description leaked last week, and will act as a replacement for the online Jordan Rec Center mode. Pro Am will, like the Rec Center, involv...
  • More NBA 2K16 feature information leaks
    Posted July 23rd, 2015 at 9:00 am 40 Comments »
    It's rare to have any game information leak prior to the planned marketing schedule for the annual sports games. That's especially true of 2K Sports who has always been very protective of their traditional cycle. NBA 2K16 releases in two months, and the company hasn't even put out a single screenshot or shown any gameplay footage yet, while revealing very little about the feature set and hinting any news would still be several weeks away. That makes what's going on with NBA 2K16 outside o...
  • Settling the debate with NBA 2K15: All-Time Lakers vs All-Time Bulls
    Posted July 23rd, 2015 at 8:00 am 3 Comments »
    The highly publicized back-and-forth between Shaquille O'Neal and Scottie Pippen over the last week, concerning which team of all-time greats would win between the Lakers and Bulls, can't go much further than trash talk (their preferred method) and well-reasoned lineup analysis and speculation. However with NBA 2K15 we can see an actual game play out with rosters containing all the legends, both current and past, that make up the storied franchises. With that in mind I ran a simulation ...
  • Discussing the role college teams will play in NBA 2K16
    Posted July 21st, 2015 at 9:30 am 3 Comments »
    Last week it was discovered, through a leaked achievements list, that MyCareer Mode in NBA 2K16 will include some form of college implementation in the early stages of the player's career path. That news, combined with there being at least 11 schools that have been licensed by 2K Sports through the Collegiate Licensing Company for use in video games, makes it appear likely that some actual universities are going to appear in NBA 2K16. It would be the first time in years that any represe...
