    That's probably why Live is next gen only. I bet they feel if they win on the next gen, then everyone will see them as the clear winner. Smart strategy, and really banking on the short term memories of Americans.
    It's also a big gamble for a franchise that has had two botched titles in three years.

    PG is an 88 in 2K14. About what I expected.

    I think I saw that Roy is an 81.

    If they are keeping Brook Lopez at an 81, it kinda makes sense. If Hibbert plays like he did toward the end of the season and playoffs, he'll get a boost for sure.

    For me, it'll be Lance and Hill. Hill doesn't get much respect. He's not great at any one thing, but he's above average in a lot of areas. As for Lance, he finally got a nice boost just before the playoffs, but 2K is stingy with those Sig Skills. Lance better have a couple Sig Skills. The Coast to Coast one that is new, that is totally Lance and Lance should have ankle breaker and space creator...probably dimer too. Dude is a gifted passer.

    But allowing to make a 17 year old player and play in euroleague for a few seasons until being draft eligible would move the needle IMO.
    That would move the needle with me as well

    Reviews are coming through for 2K14.

    IGN: 9.3
    http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/09/26/nba-2k14-review

    Bleacher Report: 9.2
    Gamespot: 8
    Metacritic: 88 out 100

    I'm a bit upset that the most played mode My Player is largely untouched. Boo!!

    Liking 2K14. They removed a lot of exploits.

    Some observations:

    1. The dribble modifier is gone. The left trigger is now the pass modifier. Going to take some getting used to.

    2. Players move much, much more fluidly. It's easier to go by someone, but it's also easier to lose you handle on the ball (especially if you're a big man).

    3. Recklessly mashing the steal and block buttons is no longer a substitute for good defense. A missed steal will lure you out of position, and every time you leave your feet to block a shot and you land on a player, it will be a foul regardless of whether or not he attempts a shot.

    4. The CPU is much, much better deflecting passes in the lane, but at the same time it does not hug the perimeter like last year. Dunks are much harder to come by against the CPU, threes much easier.

    5. They finally fixed the atmosphere. Much, much livelier and responsive crowd. They get excited and get on their feet when they're supposed to.

    6. Shot releases are much more forgiving. Instead of the four boxes, you're simply given a late/early/perfect grade on your release and a letter grade on shot selection. They've dialed back many of the late releases, so they don't vary as much on timing.

    7. So much easier to block shots at the rim. Shot blockers can go up and get a floater or layup at its peak rather than right out of a shooter's hand or from behind. And again, dunks are very blockable.

    8. The Euroleague feature is an empty husk. That said, it does provide you access to dozens of familiar NBA has-beens and never-was guys, if you feel so inclined to bring them back over. PS, Cabbage is on FC Barcelona

    I like the additions to the game but threes are way too easy to come by OB this game.

    Seems good to me, although I'm not a power user. Played a couple of games and accidentally passed out of a lot of layups using the left trigger.

    Brought in Berlin for an exhibition game. Lance had the play of the game on a break over a hapless defender.....

    2K14 is definitely harder. Having a hard time driving by people, but I've only played the Rookie Showcase, so I figure it's just my guy is too low a level. Like that some of the exploits are gone.

    Is no one else having a lag issue in jumping or trying to steal? I'll press a button and it seems to take a while to see my guy jump or go for the steal.

    Just played my first pickup game. I am in awe.

    This is the team-up mode I've always wanted. Punishes one-on-one play, rewards teamwork and passing.

    I will give a "F" grade for "Realism" in the game if Cabbage is able to dribble the ball up court without turning the ball over while being pressured on the defensive end.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    After 5 attempts, I finally got drafted by the Pacers. Woot! Pacers new pg is here to stay!


    I was adding some points to My Player and noticed my top speed right now is 92, max 3 is 90, mid range max is 75, etc. What's up with that? Is this to keep people from maxing guys out so fast or did they limit our players more than ever?

    I'm a 6'4" pg listed at 199lbs. My weight doesn't affect some stats does it?

    So upset by all the awesome things I am reading about 2K14 next gen.

    New engine, so the game won't have the same issues.
    MyGM replaces Association
    My Player gets revamped. You'll have a rival! Agent, buddies, etc.

    I'm still going to be guarded with my expectations because it's still the first edition on a new console, which will mean new problems and less features, but this is a good start. Big question mark remains regarding online features, though. Digging the enhanced visuals, animations, details, though. And I'm intrigued by finally having wingspans accurately represented and how that affects defense, and I'm glad they're upping the AI for at least the coaching.

    Cautiously optimistic.

    I predicted they would do a whole new game on next gen. They have no competition on current gen so why waste so much time on upgrading the modes in that? I am really happy with this mode the visuals in this video are amazing as well.


    Now there is a reason not to make marginal trades and what not. I am glad with where this MyGM mode is heading.

    Yeah, in my case I already decided long ago to dive in with both feet to next gen and hope for the best, but it's nice to see encouraging signs. I kind of expected worse.
