Delayed just five days before it was set to release back in May, NBA Playgrounds 2 became NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 when 2K Sports jumped on as publisher. That was followed by almost two months of silence as promotional focus shifted to NBA 2K19. Today though the new official release date of October 16 (Xbox One, PlayStation 4) ...

    "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...

    The last few years has seen EA Sports attempt to attract consumers with cover athletes that would go on to win league MVP in James Harden and Russell Westbrook, but the NBA Live series is going back to its traditional roots of selecting a young player still very much on the rise as Joel Embiid will appear on the cover of NBA Live 19. Embiid would seem to be the ideal representative for the series given his social media reach, likable and scrappy personality, and his place on a team that r...
