With the NBA lockout threatening to shut down basketball how can NBA 2K12 continue to be the dominate basketball sim if there isn't an NBA season.
Just like Im still playing NBA2K11, in the off season
3 pages for 3 points? get fucked
I love NBA 2K11,the best basket game.
I'm so sick of lockouts. Why do we even need them?
We DON'T!!! However, there is a delicate balance between players and owners (on the business side) that must be reached. Unfortunately, in the end, sports and entertainment are STILL businesses and those matters have to be addressed FAIRLY in order for business to continue. It sucks for us (especially saying as though they are arguing about money that we will NEVER see in our lifetimes).
Question... when there's a lockout, the athletes don't get to sit at home and collect a check, do they? I mean they already get paid too much as it is...
No, the athletes only get paid if they play. Once the owners locked out the players they stopped getting any of their NBA pay or benefits.
I say, and just my opinion, keep bringing the old school. If they were to keep adding those "classic" teams to NBA 2K you would have a game that can be played despite the lockout. Make challenges, like the Jordan challenges, for each of those series based on the iconic players of that time. For that matter, even creating challenges based on the recent series. This should keep things interesting until the lockout ends...even if it goes the entire season.
That was actually my first point, create a compelling campaign. I was thinking like a great NBA moments thing. You could play as the Pacers in Game 1 of the 1995 Eastern Conference Semis (where Reggie Miller scores 8 points in 9 seconds late to seal the game) at the start of the 2nd half and lead the Pacers to victory. I then said you could do some alternate history stuff such as the 2002 Western Conference Finals where the refs gave the game to the Lakers. Players could play as the Kings and win the game and series.
Exactly what I was thinking. Maybe even have a Create-a-Campaign mode. Seriously, you could create your own scenario and upload it so that others might be able to take on the challenge. This would definitely create longevity for the game. BUT, it might be TOO much longevity. This is why features like this are purposely left out of games like this. The devs still need you to buy the game next year!!!
2K11 (and the others if I remember) already have a scenario maker where you can pick teams, score, quarter, time left and that kind of stuff. But nothing as elaborate as what you are talking about.
i love nba 2k11 but they really need to step up the Graphics for 2k12, the way some of the ball player faces looked it just ugly. but still i will be buying nba 2k12 on ps3. 1 LOVE OKC THUNDER!!! psn: cedaridge / xbl: cedaridge
NBA 2k games have always looked terrible on the ps3. If you have a xbox why don't you buy it there? At least that version will be a step up on graphics for your case.
