Anyone know when we can expect details to come out on 2K13 and the NBA Live 13?

2K12.

My Player. Just played the Sac Kings and the guy I guarded could NOT miss a *****ing 3. My 11pt lead turned into an 11pt deficit real quick. You simply cannot offer any help defense cause this game let's anyone and everyone shoot a 3. Really stuck to my guy in the second half and went on to win by 2pts.

Stat line: 25pts, 13boards, 15dimes, 3steals, 1block for my 6'6" point guard. :dance:

I'm not very good at Halo either. I'm good in the solo campaigns, but not when it comes to multiplayer. These 8 years have too much time to get good, and I only have time to play a couple times a week if that. No thanks to mulitplayer. Just single player or coop for me.

I really love the original Halo. I want the Anniversary to go down in price so I can buy it. I'm just not paying $39 for such an old that and all they did was update the graphics a bit.

I disagree with everything in this post. It's a very deep story, there's plenty of other interaction if you actually try. The graphics are CLEARLY better than GTA4 and RDR.

I actually wrote a review on the game and I stated that it's one of the best titles I've played in YEARS. I gave it a 9.8 out of 10, because it's a carefully written story, the environment isn't rendered the same like every other game out there. I've completed the game, and I'm currently patching a Hard mode run through it (It's tough to do so when your playing a title as great as Lord of the Rings: War in the North).

Not trying to start an argument at all buddy,I'm just pointing out some strong opinions on the game.

No problem at all. In retrospect my stating that it is not a deep story was poorly chosen. The story is very deep. I just prefer more interaction with characters myself and not have all of the dialoge be done between action scenes.

Other than clues and picking up golden gun parts am I missing out on something? Let me know if I am because it wouldn't be the first time I played a game and missed an entire storyline I was supposed to do.

Also the action scenes are good and the graphics are what you come to expect from Rockstar games but honestly it's just not my favorite. Don't get me wrong I like it & am going to finish it but I just prefer RDR.

2K12

Played the Lakers without a Kobe Bryant and beat them by 20. Would have been 30+, but when I went out the game, the Lakers would make a run every time.

Career high 36pts, 8boards, 14dimes, 2steals, 2blocks.

For the season I'm avg 18.3pts, 6.5boards, 11.2dimes, 3.7steals (most of my steals come from playing the lanes), 1.5blocks.

Not too shabby!

If the Show came out for the 360, I might actually get a baseball game. But as much as I love baseball, I never enjoy the games. Basketball, hockey, soccer and football games are all a lot more fun for me.

MLB the Show is far and away the best series I have ever played, trailed closely on by GTA. The physics are awesome, the commentary rocks, the little things are what make the game, like shown in this thread (http://www.operationsports.com/forums/mlb-show/539338-mlb12-show-little-things-thread.html) at OS. Some of the creative directors monitor the Operation Sports forums and try to implement people's suggestions if they can, and they even recorded a commentary piece about young pitchers hitting corners to strike players out, saying something like "This kid is doing all of the little things right" by the first guy and "That sounds familiar, maybe a thread title or something" by another guy in response. Hell, in last years game, if you missed a corner with Roy Halladay and it is close but called a ball, one announcer will say "Maybe he would have gotten that call if he wasn't on the cover of the wrong game". That is why I love the Show. They do so much to keep the players happy that they can goof around with that kind of thing and it works. If I had to pick between MLB 2K12 and MLB 06 TS, I would probably pick '06.

Gosh Video games are so time consuming, about the only thing I play now days is Battlefield 3 on PS3. Just because I can quickly get my fix and then put it down. I bought final fantasy 13 months ago for like $15.00 and haven't even opened it yet. I used to be really into the RPG's.
Last one i got close to finishing was X-2. They let you breeze through the game unlocking all the story, but then make the final boss impossibly hard. I just wasn't strong enough yet. So i got fed up and youtubed the ending.

I will pick up the new GTA whenever it comes out though.

Assassin's Creed Revelations, really liked it though Jupiter's voice at the end was really hard to follow, though I got the gist. Ezio's romance and ending were very satisfying. Some of the best character moments in a video game I've ever played and not something I really expected from a game series that has Desmond/What'sherfaceKristenBellnopersonality as it's central relationship.

Saw the Microsoft conference.

Halo 4 looks interesting. New enemy look like robots. Not sure why the Covenant are still enemies, but I guess the humans didn't befriend them all.

Just please don't make me play as someone other than Master Chief. The new Splinter Cell does look very good.

Kinect sports looks cool, but I doubt I drop money for a kinect. Didn't see anything for a baskeball game from EA/2k. Wonder if there is going to be anything.

I can't get excited for Halo 4 at all.

Halo had a good story.

Halo 2 had an OK story, but passed because of it's revelations to multiplayer.

Halo 3 had an awful story, combined with a multiplayer system that wasn't all that special.

I really doubt I'll pick up Halo 4 because of this.

Any details on 2K13 or Live 13?

I read a short article on IGN about Live 13...and it didn't have much in the way of details. You'd think 2 years in development that they'd be gushing with details. The only take away is that they don't have canned animations. While good, that couldn't have taken 2 years to do and be the most exciting thing they've done.

There were a couple of screenshots that looked pretty bad too. I hope those screenshots were really old. This does not bode well for EA. 2 years...come away with nothing? Yikes. It was a short article, so hopefully IGN just left off stuff, cause to me, it comes across as really bad for EA.

:box: I would have thought EA and 2K would be taking competition more seriously. I'm not blindly spending $60 on a game full of bugs or that looks/plays terrible. One of them better step up. 2K12 was just a travesty...and the lack of support makes me question whether 2K13 will be anything better.

At least Madden actually looks good so far! Pleasantly surprised. There better be an online Franchise mode that I can play with a buddy.

E3 was pretty much a disaster imo as far as looking forward into the future of gaming. The Wii U had no info as far as a release date or pricing, and they didn't show many games for it. And of course there was nothing on the Microsoft or Sony front on their new systems, and their conferences were very boring. (Sony showing Wonderbooks for 20 minutes almost put me to sleep)

It's clear that these companies just want to milk additional money for at least another year before announcing their systems, especially Microsoft, the 360 came out in 2005, that's a long time.

I just finished up Saints Row 3. I am kind of disappointed in it. I had a lot of fun with the game, but I think I had more fun with Saints Row 2. I think SR3 was just way to short and I did not like the activities being part of the story mode. I always had a good laugh with the cut scenes in SR2 that went along with activities. Graphically and gameplay wise it was really good.

I started up SR2 and RDR again as well. I am getting a divorce so I will have plenty of time to play games again.

Same here. I farm festering woods and all the other wide open woodsy-type area elites for an hour or so before hitting the hay. Last night I found a legendary and a set item within like five minutes of each other!

I haven't touched the rmah yet, aside for two 1.25 items I sold for kicks. I might try selling whatever gold I don't need if they ever enable that feature, but other than that meh . . . I find the whole rmah pretty fascinating as an idea and I hooe more online games head this way, I just don't feel any strong urge to participate in it.

In my 2nd season in the bigs, about June, last night I threw a no hitter vs the Jays in Pittsburgh. My only blunder was a HBP (damn knuckleball!) in the 6th. I did draw a double play so I finished at the minimum.

Honestly I've just played only the first chapter as I'm lacking time right now - but from what I've played so far - it was great. Loved the movie style story telling and the bullet time gameplay is still awesome. Felt the cinematics was a bit much though compared to the amount of gameplay - but maybe that changes in the later stages...

Yeah, I just really want a new basketball game. 2k/EA...one of them had better make a good game. I'll pull my hair out if both suck. I don't have any hope for it, but if Madden is good, I'd probably pick that up too.

I still have Assassin's Creed games to play and ME3. For some reason, I just want to play sports games right now though.

It does look awesome, but I hate one vs one fighter games. They are just so dull to me, and I hate memorizing button sequences. Just want them to make something kickass like this but in a action-rpg style game. That would be really awesome.

I downloaded an updated roster on 2K12 for all the rookies and trades through the weekend.

Then started Creating a Legend with Lance Stephenson making him the backup point guard. I traded Augustin to the Nets for Brooks (did that before I started the game).

Through 2 games I'm only getting about 13min/game so far and averaging 7pts, 5boards, 4dimes - 2TOs

All I can say is that Gerald Green is a beast off the bench!

Granger, PG and Hibbs are averaging about the same amount of points at 16/gm.

Beat Det easily. Had the lead against OKC as I ended the 2nd quarter. Didn't get back in the game till 2min left in the 4th and we were down 12. Only lost by 7pts thanks to a quick dime and a last second 3 by Lance(me!). The shot was even reviewed...first time I'd seen that...and my shot counted!

Lance has been a struggle cause his on ball defense is terrible right now. I'm trying to get my consistency up first, pushed it from almost nothing to around 55 now. Once I get that up to 75-80, I'll focus putting some points in shooting. Defense will have to wait right now.

2k12 My Player

Ok, so this was by far the worst game of my career. The computer was doing everything possible to make me have a bad game and have my team lose a game. So much computer cheesing going on...mostly the shot clock cheese. God, that better be fixed for 2k13.

24pts, 5boards, 7dimes - 5TOs! Most of those TO were complete BS. I'd have a guy open, throw them the ball, but it's one of those slow motion lobs that was easily picked off. Or, I'd have a guy open, I start to pass and then all the sudden, the guy moves...but moves in a way that he goes behind the defender which means I just threw the ball right to the defender. WTF!? Most of my points came in garbage time, as I said ***** it and just started chucking up shots. I think I shot like 40% in that game. Missed 2 wide open, not a defender even remotely close to me, A+ shots. So damn frustrating. Seriously, I have not made an A+ shot in a long time. Not even joking. Probably have missed 20 straight A+ shots. Hell, I was on fire a couple games ago and the first shot I missed was a wide open A+ shot. That better be another thing fixed for 2K13. I should be making that shot more than 50% of the time. Shouldn't make it all the time, but I should be making that way more than I should be missing.

Still won the game you farking computer AI ******** cheesing-cheater.

Played the Madden 13 demo. Played pretty nice. Still had some flaws from last season like the kicker/punter constantly kicking it out of bounds.

The online play has me intrigued as well as the legends. Only wish 2K would have done this with 2K11 and 2K12. They have so many legends in the game, but they don't offer then as rookies. So disappointing. I'd love to play with Julius Irving or Wilt.

My favorite player of all time is Barry Sanders. I would love to put him on the Colts and start playing!

I told myself I would never buy another Madden until they improved the Fanchise mode (although they call it something else now) and improve online play. Seems like they've done both. I like the sound of Online play, but I still don't know if you can start a franchise with a buddy...coop style. Anyone else know? I know you can start a league with two or more, but the talk I've heard makes it sound like you have to be on separate teams.

I'll probably pre-order the game today.

Picked up Madden yesterday. A bit disappointed in that you can only choose a legend player or coach when you start your Franchise in Connected Careers. You pick a player or coach. I tried picking a player first and then quickly resigning to be a coach, but I you might only be able to resign at the end of the season.

Only was able to play around for a short while. Might have to wait till the weekend till I am really able to dive in. I was hoping you'd just be able to assign a player to a team. Really want Barry Sanders dammit.

Madden 13. Anyone here playing it?

Ok, so it's nearly impossible to pull off trades. I've been reading and the developers acknowledge it. They said the first patch should help, but they will only tweak it a little.

Here are some tips that I've found while fiddling with the game:
1. Trade to a team that has positional depth. I was able to trade for Dontari Poe and Dre Kirkpatrick cause those teams had plenty of depth at those positions. I also signed Hayneworth (yeah, I know he's a dick, but he's cheap and better than anyone I currently have), so my top 2 DT are pretty large guys. :) I'm hoping Poe will be a beast in the game since he's very fast for a big guy and strong.

However, I can't seem to trade one high rated player for another high rated player even if the player I'm trading fits one of their "team needs".

2. This is an exploit that I found. Since the Colts have plenty of cap space, you can easily sign the best FA and then trade them. I've been trading for 4 and 5th round picks. That's also how I was able to trade for Poe and Kirckpatrick.

Here's how difficult EA made trading. I offered my first rounder and next years first rounder along with Freeney to try and get Revis. The Jets kept saying no. Freeney even has a higher rating than Revis. That's just crazy. The 2 first rounders was more than over kill and they still turned those down.

The only trades I've pulled off are the two guys above. I mean, I've been trying to trade for players with a high 70's ratings and teams continue to turn me down, and each time it's for a position of their team needs and a higher rated guy. Holy ***** snacks.

I plan to put Freeney on the trade block and see what kind of offers I get. I'm trying to start completely fresh with the Colts. No old players...although I'll probably keep Wayne since he's been one of my fav players for a long time. But I'm trying to ship out any expensive vet.

Colts OLine is beyond awful in real life and in the game. Even Castanzo is only rated an 80. Thought he'd be higher.

So I have just played a little bit with Madden 2013 and it was literally just enough to start my Colts franchise. I plan on getting more into it tonight and actually play more then just one half.

My first reaction is when did Madden 2013 turn into a RPG? Why in the world are developers taking RPG elements and putting them in every single game even if it does not need it? I understand the progression of players, but that should be a behind the scene thing. I do not need to apply 1200 XP to my QB. YAY I have a level 44 QB. I just hate that. If I wanted to play a RPG I would pop in Skyrim.

I actually like it. Seems in sports games, no matter how much you kick *** with players, they never really get that much better in terms of ratings. I don't know if Madden does the XP right, I haven't played any games just yet, but we'll see.

I'm playing as a coach, so hopefully I get enough xp to be able to progress several guys. Seems it would be easier to be just one player and use all the xp. Coach has to spread it out. Hope it's weighted accordingly.

The menus system really sucks. It's impossible to make trades. Game keeps freezing on me...even though it's installed to the harddrive. Never understood that one. Just not a fan of the gameplay either.

Trading in today towards my preorder of Borderlands 2. Just 2 weeks away!

And then 2K13 will be that much closer too.

2K13 keeps sounding like it's gonna be badass.

http://www.facebook.com/NBA2K to keep up on the details.

-Looks like you get a wardrobe/closet for your my player.
-My Player can meet with the GM whenever to discuss the direction of the team, suggest roster changes, minutes, demand a trade.
-You CAN be drafted as high as #1.

I just hope that if you truly can suggest players to trade for, that the AI actually goes out of it's way to make it happen. I don't plan on making major changes, but I think I'll request DJ Augustin be traded for a different backup point. Not sure you can suggest players to be traded, so I'll probably just suggest a point that is close in overall rating. Hopefully I can get Hans traded too. hahaha

I'm hoping to be a top 5 pick, and get traded to the Pacers. If it costs the Pacers trading someone like PG for me, then I'll probably start over and kinda suck to get drafted later in the draft.

Can't wait! Just a month away fellas!

And for God's sake, let us skip to when we get picked in the draft. So obnoxious.

Here's what I would like to see.

-Sliders in My Player
-Be able to sim one game at a time instead of simming to the next big game. Sometimes I just want to skip a game or two, even some "important" games. I don't like simming a big chunk of games at once though.
-Less press conferences. Don't need this after every game unless you break a team record or hit a milestone or just have a really bad game. Half time interviews would be sweet!
-If you don't want your team broken up, you should be able to say these players I want to stay on the team no matter what. I don't want to get into year 2 of My Player and PG is traded for some guy I don't care about. I want Lance to stay, Hibbs, Green, Hill (even though I'll be the starting pg ;) ), etc.
-Don't make me have to play 5 games in order to make a trade request. If I get drafted by a team I don't even want to be on, then I should have the right to request a trade immediately.

And for God's sake, can I please hit one or two A+ shots?? I have a 95 3pt rating, yet I miss 90% A+ 3pt shot. Last game, I was on fire, and my first miss was an A+ 3pt shot that was wiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiide open. FUUUUUUUUUUUUU game! Been shooting about 32% from 3. I decided to lower my 3pt rating to 90 and see how that works out. I don't expect to hit them all, but damn, I miss just about every wide open 3. It's incredibly frustrating.

Oh, and while it would be nice to get drafted #1, I will probably purposely do bad, so I can get drafted by the Pacers. Tee-hee. In 2K11 and 2K12, it was a huuuuuuuuuuuge pain getting traded to the Pacers for some reason.

I found it ridiculously easy in 2k12. Put up about 8 to 10 points, maybe a couple of assists and steals, make some mistakes and boom, you getting interviewed by the Pacers. Be positive with them and negative or indifferent to the other two teams and viola!

Oh, it's easy to get drafted by the Pacers, yes. I meant, if another team drafts me. It's a pain requesting a trade to the Pacers. It takes several more games of waiting, and then the trade might not ever happen or you get traded to another team not on your list. That's why I would try to play just well enough that the Pacers interview you, so you don't have to go through that frustration.

If they haven't fixed the computers ability to steal a pass every time without even looking for the ball I'm going to be pissed. That is just lazy. And it was what ended up eventually killing NBA live and Madden, EA got too focused on adding shinies. I hope 2k doesn't do the same thing.

I never played 2K before 2K11. 2K11 was just amazing. 2K12 was plagued by poor gameplay & bugs.

I've preordered, and I'm hoping for the best. There's no way it can be worse than 2K12...right?

I truly hope in My Player that my teammates don't become dumb as a box of rocks, and not play to their tendencies. I remember being on the Lakers and Kobe rarely drove to the basket. He'd just shoot 3s. He was pretty much worthless as a teammate. And Granger, he'd drive to the basket just about every time for me. And he'd dunk over people. lol

Yeah, the shiny stuff is nice and adds some depth to the game, but if they didn't fix the gameplay then what's the point? Still, hoping for the best!

Not much. I think I bumped him up from a 64 to a 67. Felt his quickness and passing were a bit low. After the season he went up to a 72.

They resigned Hibbs during the season. Another 5 year deal going from $8M to $14M. That felt more than fair to me. He's rated better than Lance and plays more minutes.

Lance makes about $900k. I wouldn't think even signing for the max would be that high in real life. It just made me laugh. Seriously, if I kept playing this game, my cap situation would be a bad state to try and resign PG.

2K13 Player Ratings

Pacers:
Hibbert - 86 (up from 76 in 2K12...some big love!)
Granger - 84 (no change)

That's all we know officially. This comes from Ronnie2k's twitter feeds.

My guesses for the rest:
PG was a 77 in 2K12. I'd imagine he'd be an 80.
West was a 74 in 2K12. <strike>I'd imagine he'd get a sizeable bump since he's 100% healthy - 85.</strike> 74-76.
GHill was a 72 in 2K12. This one is tough since he didn't come on strong till he won the starting job. I think he'll get a 75.
Lance was a 58. Might get a bump to a 60.
DJ was a 72. Probably stays the same.
Ian was a 47 (think he finished the year with a 65 though). 65 (he had numbers comparable to Robin Lopez who was a 63).
Gerald Green was a 69. might get a bump to a 71.
Hans was a 71. He'll be lucky if he doesn't get downgraded. I think he stays at a 71.
Jeff Pendergraph was a ??. Who cares, totally irrelevant. 45.
Plumlee will probably be rated a 65-69 (still think this was a terrible pick).
OJ will get a 57.

Sam Young was a 68 in 2k12. My guess is a 65 in 2K13.

Needless to say, the Pacers should be very very good in 2K13. :) :buddies:

Borderlands 2

I've tested out the Commando and the Gunzerker. Cammando is nice cause you can just drop that turret among enemies and then circle around and kill some baddies from behind. The Gunzerker is ok. Dual wielding is nice, but I'm such a low level so it takes forever and a day to reload, so he kinda sucks right now. Once I get the reload times super fast, I'm sure he'll kick much more butt.

Have some buddies that just love the Siren. He skill really comes in handy. I will probably test her out next.

I played the demo a few times (2k13) earlier. I hope the framerate is that solid in the full game; I had issues with 2k12's framerate. Looks okay, but their demos are so thin and the adjustment to the yet-again-messed-with control scheme makes it hard for me to really get a 'feel'. That won't happen until I start sinking my teeth into the full game next week.

Passing seemed a little hard to me anyways. Now for the "Holy ****!" moment. I went to ally oop DWade with Lebron. Which is X+A this year. Well instead of tossing it up to DWade. Lebron tossed it off the backboard, caught it, and threw it down. Animation is smooth. I cant say much for the servers that they so badly need to work on.

You and about 2 million others. Lol. It really is a shame. I hate Live as much as the next guy, but I do feel like competition spawns great products. After Madden got exclusive rights to the NFL. They tread water for years before putting any real effort into the game. IMO.

I used to be a huge Live fan up until 2k6 came out. I remember buying Live 2006 because it came out a week earlier, and I couldn't wait for a basketball game. Just bought my 360, and could only afford one game. Took it home, played for about 10 minutes. Hated it so much, and knowing I couldn't take it back. I was almost in tears, it was so bad. Luckily my wife used her boobs, I mean charm to talk the GameSpot manager in New Castle to exchange it for a 2k preorder. I haven't looked back since...not that there has been a reason to.

IGN gave NBA 2k13 a 9.1- Amazing. Not too shabby.

Do you know the final ratings? I'm interested in knowing if Hibbert really is an 86.

Still playing the heck out of Borderlands. Have started 3 different characters and haven't even come close to finishing the main quest with either.

2K13 is out tomorrow. Not sure when I'll start playing, but I'll probably start a My Career this weekend. See if I can try to get drafted #1.

I beat all mission in Borderlands 2 on Saturday. Only played with one character(assassin). Finished up at level 35. Got done just in time for 2k13. Which I should be playing in about 12 hours. Stoked!

Once it comes out, we'll need a 2K13 thread. I'd love to know if anyone gets drafted #1 or who at least comes the closest.

I mean I'm sure any idiot can set it to rookie difficulty and get picked number 1.

Actually I believe I read or watched something that said difficulty would not make becoming #1 easier. They didn't want to penalize more seasoned 2k players who will likely want to play on a higher difficulty.

How would it not though? Setting it to a lower difficulty makes it easier to score points, etc.

Not sure really. Maybe getting 10/6/2 on hall of fame is good enough to be a top pick. Where as it might take 21/10/5 to be a top pick on allstar. I wish I could find what i think was a developer video interview. I never really did the my player thing, so Im not super knowledgeable of it.
