EA Showing No Urgency for What May Be Make or Break Year for NBA Live
NBA Live 15 is due out in under two weeks and in just eight days it'll be made available through EA Access on Xbox One. Most wouldn't really know it though with the lack of promotion it has received and all attention going towards the competition. EA has largely shielded Live 15 from consumer. Rather than show off gameplay they've pushed screenshots and information like player ratings, team rankings and the soundtrack.Â (more…)...

Thoughts on NBA 2K15 MyCareer Mode
MyCareer is the most popular mode in the NBA 2K series and for good reason. Starting in 2K14 it became more of a story mode than a standard career mode and has benefited greatly from that by providing a uniquely compelling experience that is unmatched in the genre. In 2K15 there's a brand new storyline which will click with some, various improvements and additions made, and some areas where it could really use some work.Â (more…)...
Soundtrack for NBA Live 15
EA Sports has released the full list of songs that are included in NBA Live 15. The soundtrack has been put together by MICK who was also involved with Live 14. No promises have been made that new songs will be added throughout the season - as was the case with Live 14 and never fulfilled - but it wouldn't be surprising if it were to happen this time around.
You can listen to the playlist through Soundcloud here.Â The soundtrack is made up of mostly unknowns and that could beÂ refreshing ...

As difficult as it may be for many to stomach the Dallas Cowboys are playing like the best team in the NFL right now.

EA Making Server Stability a Selling Point of NBA Live 15
It's certainly no coincidence that while NBA 2K15 struggles with its servers, resulting in inaccessible modes or some that have yet to function properly at all, that EA Sports has come out to proclaim their upcoming game will not experience similar problems. A few mentions from the company related to NBA Live 15 lately have raised eyebrows. It's an area where they can take advantage but the same could have been said last year and they failed to do so.Â (more…)...
What Has Your Experience Been Thus Far With NBA 2K15?
NBA 2K15 has been out for nearly a week now and there's a lot it does exceptionally well. Unfortunately it is also hampered by widespread server problems that affect nearly the whole game not just online modes and other issues like many have had with the face scanning feature.
