Guide to The Neighborhood

Tweeted out by the official NBA 2K Twitter. A little difficult to read even at full size, but it provides a few details on locations and features.

I don't mind cosmetic stuff being locked behind OVR, but the headphones and bicycle for OVR 90 is cringy. Am I getting too old?

I'd like to say no, but there's a distinct possibility that I'm getting too old as well, so maybe I'm not the best person to answer that. :P

Considering their primary tangible benefit of being able to get from A to B in The Neighborhood quicker, I'd agree that they should be lower level rewards. Travelling around is going to be the main drawback of this open world approach for people who want to get straight to a game. There probably is some dissonance between younger and older gamers here; if you're older and now rationing your gaming time somewhat, minutes spent manually travelling from mode to mode with an open world environment serving as a hub (and dealing with the associated loading times) all come out of the restricted amount of time you've set aside to play. If you're younger, have more free time on your hands, and have been itching to see something like this in NBA 2K, it's all part of the experience and most likely not a bother.

Haven't been able to read too much, anyone knows if wait to play is still a thing? Seems like it, and with a somewhat open world, it might get even worse.

I assume "Got Next" will still be a thing in The Playground.

Kinda lame that they would get rid of 4 v 4. It's not a favorite mode of mine but I play it once in awhile.

I'm guessing not a lot of people played it. It was almost always empty when I went into MyPARK.
