I'm excited for the release but still contemplating pre-ordering with just over two weeks left before the release. The games sounds as if it will be a solid current gen release but I will be playing strictly pc version. If I can not use mods day 1 then I can deal with waiting until the game is 50% off or some other kind of deal.

I think this is the year to try to really combat the pirated version and report stuff like that because I would love for 2K to have a successful pc release so that they will be motivated about continuing the series on pc

Solid insight. I like that they emphasised the improvements in NBA 2K14 without completely trashing NBA 2K13. As noted many times before, the game doesn't look remarkably different from last year, though the clips do show off what appear to be some of the new animations here and there. Sounds like they've put some good work in, hopefully the results are pleasing and the new right stick controls work out alright.

They should've have made more changes to the presentation and icons because people see that before they even try to notice the gameplay. Even if the gameplay really is much different or better than last year they make themselves look bad by having the same overall look to the game.

To me it is a bit disrespectful to the customers to not change the presentation of a yearly release game. Your customer already played the game for a whole year so atleast make the new one look a bit fresh to him.

Well, they did get rid of the swirls and other Jay-Z inspired designs that a lot of people disliked. What I'd really like to see them to do is form a partnership with TNT as EA Sports has done with ESPN, to really enhance the authenticity of the presentation.

I agree forming a partnership with TNT would be awesome. I would love to see them showing something after the game or highlights. The highlights would be discussed by Shaquille O Neal, Ernie Johnson, Kenny The Jet Smith and Charles Barkley. I also think they should show a mock draft during the season just like NBA Live does and not just during the offseason.

All the post game highlights in the world don't matter, if the game play isn't solid. Czar's video showed solid pick and roll for only half a play, then the AI descended into chaos.

Wonder what the reason is for them not teaming up with TNT. It's definitely not money, I'm sure it can't cost more than what they dished out to Jay-Z. I think it's marketing, they don't think a partnership with TNT will sell as much as having some random Celeb.

It could come down to money or the terms of the deal being unappealing. They'd also have to throw out some assets, including all of Doris Burke's lines as she's ESPN.

I think it was the other way around, Jay-Z throwing buckets of money at 2K to have him on board as executive producer. Probably one of his plans to make noise for the newly moved Brooklyn Nets since his affiliation with the team made him synonymous with it even though he's a minority owner and his shares were probably just gas or whore money (money used to buy ho's!) for Prokhorov.

I also imagine having Jordan on a long term deal is expensive. Then LeBron as cover player.

Maybe 2K used that Jay-Z money to finally snag LeBron.

If you’re about realism in NBA games, but you lack the experience in this type of game mode, I’d suggest starting with a player like Kwame; it really does feel like an authentic experience straight off the bat.

Yes, one department EA is always ahead at is the $$$ one. Weird how they didn't choose Kobe, Melo or any other superstars for cover. But still, I'm sure it would have been a good deal for both 2K and TNT. Maybe the 2K guys are not just giving that much attention to the presentation section for now. They are just focusing on the gameplay & next gen stuff.

I have never liked the idea of having TNT presentation unless it is only used like it is in real life (Thursday nights best two games and then the playoffs).

NCAA Basketball 10 was great with the two different presentation types (ESPN and CBS) too bad the game was pretty much awful to play.

I love everything I have seen from the gameplay. More contact. Realistic CPU decisions depending on how the defense is playing (CPU looks fluid not scripted).

I can't wait until I ge the game next week.
2013 is the year?
Thanks to Vl@d, Leftos and all the other patchers for their hard work.
