My very own

Xbox 360 Dynasty

Well I got this game on wednesday when it finally was relelased and oh my god, what a game! I'll write a review for the rest of the aussies within the week, but I have already started a franchise for it.

Some basic details of the franchise:
I'm using the lakers
Its on pro diffculty (only the third hardest, ill move it upto legendary soon)
8 minute quarters
sliders unchanged
and no trades.

A brief rundown


I started this franchise yesterday, and didn't think i'd be continuing it so i didnt write any detailed reports, so i'll apologise for the lack of detail.

Lakers @ Nuggets
I was tempted to put the starting lineup the lakers used in the playoffs (parker, kobe, odom, walton, brown) but i kept the default (mihm instead walton, odom at the sf and brown at pf). I did this to allow Odom to be in more of a playmaking role. In the game the nuggets came out strong behind kenyon martin and miller. Kobe was in foul trouble all game and odom was fantastic in distributing the ball and using his height to get the better off melo. In the fourth quarter, Kobe took over and hit a 3 with 2.7 seconds remaining to tie the game, but Earl Boykins hit a runner on the buzzer to win and start my season 0-1.

Suns @ Lakers
Oh yeah, this is what I wanted :). The suns played very similar to how they do in real life, they'd give up 10 or 11 straight points, but then make up 9 points within a minute. They were up by 3 at haltime before Kobe simply took over in the 3rd and 4th quarter and would finish with 53 points and an impresive victory, 130-110.

Nuggets @ Lakers
This game I accdently simmed, and the nuggets won 85-74. I was filthy about this becuase I wanted revenge on Denver, and I was actually thinking about restarting the franchise, but I didnt. It makes for a great storyline for the next game against denver. Final score was 85-74

Lakers @ Hawks
After the stupidity of simming the Nuggets game, I was pretty focused in this game and Atlanta never stood a chance. Kobe had 37 first half points but only finished with 44 as I made sure to distribute the ball. The final score was 139-108.

Lakers @ twolves
KG was injured and I was lucky he was. This game was late at night so I wasn't really into this one. I was used to the scoring fest in the Hawks game, and Minnesota is actually decent without KG. Maybe twolve fans should get used to that :crazy:. Kobe and Odom kept things close, but Minnesota held a 10 point lead just after half time. I was able to cut that down to 5 before the start of the fourth, and Kobe won the game for me down the strecth. Final Score 104-94 Lakers.

Lakers @ Philly

This was the first game on espn this season, and I wanted to get this win. Iverson and Webber came out strong for Philly, But Kobe was spectacular in this one, scoring 68 points, getting 10 assists, 5 rebounds and 3 steals. And the Lakers won 131-104. Yes, I know, time to adjust sliders and move upto legendary mode :P

Injuries
Kevin Garnett
Danny Fortson
Olowkandi
Mashburn (i wonder why he's in the game? i thought he retired and this is the updated roster.)
Rafer Alston

Signings
Spree to Philly (wow, him and webber reunited alongside Iverson :crazy:)
Glenn Robinson to Portland
Kittles to Milwaulkee
Penny to Chicago
Doug Christie to Cleveland
Googs to the Hornets
Elden Campbell to Dallas
Rodney Rogers to Detroti
Wesley Person to Chicago
Jon Barry to Cleveland
G. Lynch to the Clippers
Keon Clark to the Hornets
Travis best to Seattle

Trades
Larry Hughes (on the trading block) traded to Atlanta for Joe Johnson.
Interesting deal from Atlanta's point of view, but makes Cleveland a contender with a shooter and scorer in Johnson, and the signing of Christie means they wont miss a beat defensively.

Josh Childrees (on the trading block) dealt to the suns to R. Bell
I'm cut this deal went down. I loved playing against Bell with Kobe, but it makes perfect sense for the suns as Childress adds size, athleticism and skill to the suns, somthing Bell was never able to do.

Looking good. (Y) Do you plan on continuing to use Kobe like that or will you pull back a bit and distribute the scoring a little more, or going for some records?

In some games I've been able to go for records becuase it's been a bit easy. I'll be experimenting with sliders and legendary mode to make it so i cant decide who i want to score with before i inbound the ball. I'm really enjoying the presentation of this game though, very reminiscant of TNT broadcasts.

I want to keep this fairly realistic, although I'm considering maybe trading mihm and a few others for alonzo.

Lakers @ Memphis
I made the mistake of playing on Pro for the first few games, and put it upto all star. It made a difference for a little while, as I couldn't just do whatever I wanted. Kobe could still get into the lane but I couldn't really dominate on the perimeter. I was still able to shut the grizzlies down in the first quarter and took a 25-18 lead into the second quarter after Devaen George hit a buzzer beater. In the second, George continued his good shooting and touch around the basket and prevented the Grizzlies from swarming Kobe, and I put 31 points up in the 2nd to take a 56-36 lead into half time.

2nd half.

In the second, Kobe finally started to knock down jumpers and once again I held Memphis to only 18 points in the quarter, and the quarter finished with a 82- 54 lead. In fourth I rested all of my starters and won the game 113-82. The game was good to play only becuase I felt Memphis had a run in them. If the next game is a similar blowout, I'll move upto Legendary.

Player of the game

Kobe
33 points, 7 rebounds, 8 assists

Odom had 20 points and 14 rebounds, smush had 11 points and 8 assists and george had 18 points, 14 in the first half.

Knicks @ Lakers

This was the first game back home since the sim debacle which cost me a loss against the nuggets, and it was good to see staples again. 2k6 always does a great job with the stadiums and crowds. In the first quarter Kobe got into some cheap foul trouble and Marbury was playing like he did in 2003; smart, patient and ruthless. Lamar struggled a abit without kobe but soon found his groove and I was able to tie the game up at 29 on a kwame turnaround just before the buzzer. In the second period though, the threat of the Knicks was still there and even with Kobe returning, it wasn't enough to cool down the francis and crawford express, and they led 59-54 at halftime.

2nd half

Despite being down 5 points, I was completely confident that I could play the way I wanted to and get back the lead and control. How wrong I was. Crawford and Richardson continued their stella play and within 90 seconds I was down by double digits for the first time this season. Smush and Kobe sparked a run which brought the lead down to 85- 79 at the start of the fourth, but what was worrying was I was actually playing focused basketball and unable to really chip away. The start of the fourth had a feeling of dejavue as the Knicks reelled off a 10-0 run to give them a 16 point lead before Kobe began to take over and bring the lead down to 3 with 2 minutes remaining. Curry made that a 4 point lead with a put back jam, which kobe responded to with a clutch 3 point play, and then lamar picked richardsons pocket and assisted on a kobe dunk which gave me the lead. Smush would hit on an 8 footer to give me a 3 point lead before Crawford hit another 3 inside the final minute, but Kobe kept attacking, kept getting inside and I was able to pull out a 119-115 win. The Lakers scored 39 points in the final quarter to get the win.

Player of the Game
Kobe
42 points, 11 assists, 3 rebounds, 2 steals

Other notables:
Odom 27 points, 12 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal
Smush 21 points, 7 assists, 1 steal

Knicks:
Crawford 29 points and 5 steals, Marbury 24 points and 16 assists, Richardson had 16 points 4 rebounds and 5 assists, and Curry had 13 points and 2 (just like in real life! :crazy:) rebounds.

Some of you guys are asking for screens, I hope this is sort of what you are after:

Wow very nice screenshot of the Xbob 360 version of 2k6. I was considering doing a 2k6 dynasty but the previous one was made by ShAuN and we all know about ShAuN and bandwagoning....

Good to see Kobe dominate AND make 11 assists.

Clippers @ Lakers

What can I say for this game? Kobe came out and hit his first 8 shots, and scored 22 first quarter points! The score after one was 37-25. Kwame was injured when he fouled Brand, but despite that I took a 70 to 54 lead into half time. The second half was much more of the same. The final score was 144-107. After the game I immediately jacked up the difficulty to superstar, and I found there is in fact a fith level! I'm happy about that, becuase I want a challenge this season. Thats why I didnt make any trades.

Player of the Game
Kobe
55 points (23-30 fg!), 4 rebounds, 6 assists, 2 steals, 1 block

Odom 22 points, 6 rebounds, 5 assists, 3 steals, 1 block
Mihm 16 points, 6 rebounds, 3 assists, 1 steal, 1 block
George 15 points, 5 rebounds, 4 assists, 1 steal
Smush 14 points, 3 rebounds, 11 assists

For all you readers with a lack of imagination, here's some screens.

Image
Image
Image

The only bad thing was Kwames injury. He broke his wrist and is out for 35 days. I have a few proposed starting lineups to use instead.

The first is the obvious insertion of Cook at pf:
C: Mihm
PF: Cook
SF: Odom
SG: Byrant
PG: Smush

Then theres a playoff style lineup:
C: Mihm
PF: Odom
SF: Walton
SG: Byrant
PG: Smush

But the one I'm leaning towards is putting george in, with Odom at pf:
C: Mihm
PF: Odom
SF: George
SG: Byrant
PG: Smush

Any suggestions? :)

Nice screenshots!! Too bad Kwame is out for a month. I actually put Walton at PF in my dynasty, Odom at SF. This creates more mismatches for Odom, but a bad thing is Walton gets into foul trouble easily..

Go with the George line up, with Walton in the line up, you do have another passer, but I think Odom is doing a fairly good job of distributing the ball. (Not to mention Kobe's MVP-esque assists.) George's three point shot could help spread the floor.

Nice screens, the way you & Jae talk about the 2K series, I'm seriously contemplating on buying it. Nice dynasty to read, the screens help aswell.

Best o'luck.

Some small transactions

Lakers trade Arron Mckie and Sasha Vujacic to Atlanta for Tyronne Lue, Donta Smith and a 2nd round pick.

Lakers also signed Jason Caffey for $500,000 for the rest of the season.

A few reasons for these moves: The caffey signing was simple, I needed another big man who could defend and get rebounds. Odom is a great asset, but if he gets into foul trouble too much pressure is on Brian Cook. The hawks deal was basically to unload Mckies contract and I consider Lue an upgrade over Vujacic. Plus its good to see Kobe, George and Lue reunited with Phil Jackson. Ah, another reason for the Caffey signing, Phil Jackson! :proud:.

The Lineup I went with:

C: Mihm
PF: Lamar
SF: George
SG: Kobe
PG: Smush

I haven't really gotten a handle on how to use Walton in this game just yet, so I went with George.

Image

Chicago @ L.A.

This was my first game on superstar (or whatever its called, the fourth hardest setting :)) and immediately you could tell the differences. No fastbreaks on every possesions, no hitting 20 footers with Mihm. The Bulls came out strong as the Lakers were unable to really find their groove with the new lineup, and Kobe picked up 2 quick fouls which didnt help either. Odom scored 11 1st quarter points but the bulls led 30-27. In the second Chicago continued to play well and I continued to just make stupid play after stupid play, and Chicago led by 10 before a 12-2 run capped by a kobe 3 point play tied the game, but the Bulls finished the quarter with a floater by gordon on the buzzer to give them a 60-58 lead.

2nd half

The lakers came out fired up in the second half, with odom scoring on a bank shot, then george getting a steal and dishing to kobe for a dunk and a foul on gordon (which was his fourth) to give the lakers a 3 point lead. With Gordon on the bench, the bulls suprised everyone by going to piatkowski rather than Penny (i forgot to upload his screenshot, ill do so later). Kobe would simply explode for 18 3rd quarter points, and when the bulls resorted to double teaming him, he found players like brian cook and lamar for easy shots around the rim. The lakers outscored the bulls 35-19 in that quarter and took a very healthy 93-79 into the fourth quarter. The Bulls started by scoring the first 4 points of the quarter, so I put kobe back in and Gordon picked up two fouls, one over the back, and another attempting to block a kobe jumper which saw his exit. Once he left the game was essentially over and the final score was L.A. 118, the Bulls 100.

Player of the game
Kobe
52 points (20-25 shooting, 10 assists, 1 rebound, 1 block, amazing.)

Other key players:
Lamar 17 points, 8 rebounds, 5 assists, 4 steals
Devean George 9 points, 1 rebound, 2 steals
Smush 8 points, 1 rebound, 5 assists, 3 steals

Some of the bulls best:
Deng 22 points4 rebounds 5 assists, Hinrich 20 points and 8 assists, and Gordon with 18 points and 2 steals.

I'll post that screenshot of Penny later, but heres a couple from the game that i did upload:

Amazing is right. Looks like it's going to be one hell of a season for Kobe.

Nice move bringing in a former Phil Jackson player in Caffey, too. (Y)

Sonics @ Lakers
Before the game I was tempted to start Tyronne Lue instead of smush just to help contain Ridnour, but I stayed with Smush. Rashard Lewis came out on fire in the first quarter, dropping 14 points and Kobe responded with 12, but the sonics had the lead after 1, 30-26. In the second Lewis continued to pile up points, and at one stage the Sonics led by 15! Kobe and Jim Jackson (i had lamar at pg, kobe at sf, jackson at the 2, and on defense kobe and lamar switched). The gamble worked until Jim Jackson sprained his ankle, and Seattle finished the half up 60 to 48. Kobe had 28 in the first half, and lewis had 31.

2nd Half
The quarter started in slow fashion, with Kobe having to carry everything as per usual. Odom was really struggling from the feild. Lewis was on fire still and kep the sonics afloat. I was able to mount a few solid runs to get the lead down to 3, but Rashard Lewis continued to pile on the points. At the end of the third it was 91 - 79 sonics. Early in the fourth Ray Allen fouled out, which allowed me to put Kobe on Lewis and that slowed him down and I was able to chip away, slowly but surely, as Kobe kept attacking, kept getting to the line. But in the end the offensive rebounding killed any chances I had, and seattle walked away with the win, 123 to 111.


Player of the Game
Rashard Lewis
56 points (including 10 of 15 3 pointers), 9 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal.

Kobe deserves a huge mention here as well.
66 points, 3 rebounds, 5 assists

What a duel! I can't wait for the next seattle game.

Other Notable stats:
Ridnour 25 points, 17 assists, 3 steals
Allen 20 points, 2 rebounds, 2 assists
Lamar Odom 18 points, 15 rebounds, 2 assists, 1 steal
Jim Jackson 8 points, 1 rebound, 1 steal, 1 block

And to pay homage to Jim Jacksons first notable game, he gets a screenshot of him:

Sounds like an awesome shootout, sorry you had to be on the losing side. No shame in it though when you have someone drop 10/15 from downtown on you though. Sure makes Allen's 20 look tame. What was Kobe's FG% on his 66 points?

Kobe shot around 22 of 38 from what i remember.

Transactions
Lakers sign Eddie Robinson to a one year deal at the minimum. I got him becuase he is somewhat young, at the minimum wont cost me anything, and he could turn out to be insurance for devean george if he leaves at the end of the season.

Nets @ Lakers
Entering the game the lineups now showed the current season stats, and with it it showed kobes 45 ppg average! I'm sure if its coincidence, but to start to quarter, the nets swarmed kobe in a way the cpu only does when ive run 10 or so straight points with him. As a result, he started 1 of 5 from the feild and only had 5 points at the end of one. New jersey dominated with Jefferson but it didnt take me long to exploit Lamar inside against Cliff robinson. With the quarter running down, Walton threw up a 65 footer that went in (i have attempted to upload a video, not sure how it will play though). The score after one was 31 all. Continueing with that surge walton played brilliantly to start the second, until Mihm injured his hip on a dunk. Lamar was playing fanatastic and kobe was playing well as a distributer. At half time I was up 62- 53. Odom was 7 from 7 from the feild and had 17 points to be the first non kobe palyer to get a player of the half award for the lakers.

2nd Half
To start the half the lakers were in cruise control, with Smush and kobe distributing, and cook and odom finishing strong against a very week interior defense. Jefferson was keeping the Nets close but that didnt stop the lakers taking a 91 to 79 lead into the final quater. In the final quarter though, the nets showed why they are so good. I rested Kobe and Lamar a little too early and Kidd and Jefferson came storming back by causing turnover after turnover on Lue. Due to my Phil Jackson esque stubborness, it wasnt until the lead had dwindled down to 3 did i call a timeout. Thankfully though, kobe was ready to dominate.He started by finding cook for a dunk, and odom for a 3 point play, but new jersey continued to stay close behind carter and jefferson. They actually tied the game up before i went into complete kobe mode. Kobe finished with 18 in the fourth to bail me out, and the lakers won 121-115


Player of the Game
Despite kobes heroics, it has to be:

Lamar Odom
34 points, 10 rebounds, 3 assists

Other Laker standouts:
Kobe, 34 points 3 rebounds 10 assists and a steal and a block
Brian Cook, 16 points 3 rebounds 2 assists
Luke Walton 11 points (all in the first half) 5 rebounds
Smush 4 points, 2 rebounds 9 assists 2 steals
George 10 points 1 rebound 2 assists

Net Standouts:
Jefferson 31 points 5 rebound 7 assists
Carter 21 points 2 rebounds 10 assists 3 steals 1 block
Kidd 17 points 2 rebounds 10 assists 1 steal 1 block

Walton buzzer beater
Another video! This is the end of the 3rd quarter.

These videos are in mp4, lets hope they work :).
