    "The Neighborhood" was introduced in NBA 2K18 and arguably represented the worst of what the game had to offer. Not only was it built around virtual currency and advertisements but it was a major culprit of time wasting. What was likely good in concept despite being overhyped was not in execution, as it took what could be accomplished in simple fashion through menus and instead made basic tasks take minutes to complete. 2K Sports has just debuted a trailer for the second year of The Neigh...

    When NBA Playgrounds 2 was delayed just five days before it was set to release back in May, one of the most plausible theories was that developer Saber Interactive was being acquired by Take Two/2K Sports. Two months passed without a single word from the team behind the game which made it likely that the silence was due to some form of private discussions taking place. Today we found out that the reality is along those lines as the arcade series is now going to be published by 2K Sports and ...
