    Two words..."face scan"

    I am so psyched for the release of this game, even though I am in that weird place as a Pacers fan going into a season hard to get psyched about. In case you don't know about this "face-scan" business, it was released yesterday that, using the PS4/Kinect(Xbox) cameras, you will be able to digitalize your face and upload it onto your My Player for Career Mode. This will take the level of addiction and immersion of the game to a whole new level. Here is a vid of the news released by 2k yesterday:



    Now, on to a conundrum I have as a Pacers fan: I only play these games for MyGM and MyCareer, and put most time to MyGM. What sucks for Pacers fans this year is that the MyGM experience, if following previous games, will start the 14-15' season with Paul George at full health. Now, while this may seem fun for some fans, I would much rather simulate the real experience of the season, that of trying to develop players and figure out a system to work with the glorious return of Paul George a season later (maybe after a decent lottery pick as well!). So, in actuality, I am even more psyched for NBA 2k15, IF in fact there is a way to legitimately start MyGM/MyLeague mode with current NBA injuries accounted for. I would love to fight for a playoff seed or develop Hibbert as a force over the 14'-15' season, while increasing the opportunities for guys like Solomon Hill. This would be an awesome feature to the game and one I hope they consider. The cheap and annoying way to get around this is to just bench Paul George, but this will lower his morale over time, taking away from the overall experience. Any suggestions or tricks I am not aware of? I would be very annoyed if I was playing Paul George to a certain MVP season in the game, while in real life he was rehabbing. Something about that bothers me, since I enjoy the "simulation/realism" aspect of the game.

    What are everyone's thoughts on NBA 2k15 this year? Face-scan hype'd?

    Also, I'd be really upset if, for another year, they didn't feature a Classic late 90's Pacers team.

    They don't. There's a partial video of teams scrolled starting with the 1995 magic, and there were no changes. If there's a new classic team it'll be 1994 or earlier.

    If you're going to be upset at anyone, be upset at Reggie. He's the one choosing not to be involved with the game.

    Confirmed new classic players this year are Bernard King, Tom Chambers, Kevin Johnson, Bob Cousey, Tiny Archibald and Rick Barry.

    Also confirmed is that they will be putting out classic versions of current players, which is an option they really dropped the ball on last season. So we'll likely see 2005 Duncan, 2006 Nash, 2007 Kobe, 2004 Garnett, 2003 Ray Allen, etc.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    STG also did the face scan and his avatar looks just like him. Crazy how good the facial scan is.

    Not sure if you've found out by now, but I'm pretty sure they have infact made it to where you can set injuries before starting a MyGM or MyLeague. MyLeague is their new version of Association mode btw.

    Pretty corny video, but they just announced 2KTV. Seems like they're really going all out this year.

    Pacers ratings thus far:

    Ian Mahinmi- 75
    Rodney Stuckey- 75
    CJ Watson- 75
    CJ Miles- 73
    Chris Copeland 71
    LaVoy Allen 68
    Solomon Hill 66
    Donald Sloan 65

    They have released to rank 151 so far. Im expecting Solomon Hill to make a major jump after the first update if he is in fact our starting SF. I am pleasantly surprised by the ratings for CJ Watson and Mahinmi. I know this year the system is different for ratings, but I think a 75 for a center is pretty good. Youngish players with decent ratings like that will make the 2014 PG-less season more fun in a development sense.

    An update about the injury system, as suggested already, they released information about manually managing injuries in MyLeague. I am very happy about this. The scouting updates and in-season training sound insanely in-depth. With full player creation, and the insane amount of material and depth of this game, 2k might just have lost some perennial customers, as in I might not need to buy 2k16,17,18...

    also, either they really overestimated Damjan Rudez, or they forgot to add him to the game. Did I overlook something?

    I remember face scanning in Rainbow Six Vegas, this should be interesting.

    I think they said there are a few guys they still need to add in an update or something, I'm assuming he's one of them.

    Hmmm, they seem to be putting faith in Hill having a career season. He certainly will have his opportunities. Scola's rating is a bit higher than I expected as well. Not complaining though. I think it reflects the increase in touches they are both expected to receive.

    Every badge explained...pure gold. Check out the "Pat My Back" badge. Is that specifically made for Roy? Who else in the league has become synonymous with "responds best when coddled".

    On Court Coach - MyCareer specific. A player with this badge can get the ball, call plays and tell teammates to shoot whenever he wants
    I really hope this actually works this time.

    ipodkingcarter on YouTube has some really good 2K15 videos out.



    He explains the new Signature Skills --> Skill Badges

    You have to break a few ankles before unlocking the badge. It's like an RPG! I love this idea! You can't just be good at things buy buying it. You have to actually do them. If you want to be a good thief, you have to practice lockpicking to get better at it.

    Love it!!

    Hibbert will likely be an 80 and West an 83.

    Damjan - 90 or probably a 65 when they add him.

    Not sure about this addition. Coaches gameplan. You have a rating with your coach and by not following the coaches direction, then rating will take a hit. If it gets too low, I'm sure you'll lose minutes if you aren't very good, but ultimately, it could get you traded.

    I'm hoping after you get star status, then these will be centered around you or give you more flexibility.

    As long as these aren't every game, then I'll be ok with this, but if this happens too often, it could get very very annoying.

    I too am concerned about these. Hopefully they can be skipped or simplified via text instead as an option. Or, they could be worth watching if gameplans get more complex. The two shown by Smoove seem really intuitive. I hope there is material that long time basketball fans can find interesting and useful.

    It would be great for the CPU to finally take advantage of mismatches. Like double teaming Durant, taking advantage of size advantages, etc. Game has seriously been lacking in these areas.

    Or even ask me who I'd like to guard. I'd prefer to guard the best player on the court, kinda like how PG guards the best player, even if it's a pg like Rose.

    West at an 80? Boo that crap. Dude should be an 83/84.

    Guess I'll be editing ratings to be more realistic for some players. They always have PG as pretty slow. They had Lance as being faster, which is complete crap.

    Yeah, I think West should at least be on par with David Lee.
