Did I miss something?

Postby maddenftbl on Mon Jan 29, 2018 12:21 pm

I apologize to everyone if I put this in the wrong place, I also listed this in Bugs.

I was just wondering if I missed something or not? I no longer get the post game reports with Shaq, Ernie and Kenny. Every game shoes the half time, but at the end of the game there is none!

Verify your game cache through Steam, that should fix it.

wait? there are post game reports with shaq, ernie, and kenny on 2k18? I've never seen one. I just play myleague and play now. do myleague and play now not have postgame reports? I get the half time report with shaq and kenny and ernie, but at the end of a myleague game it goes straight to the quit menu. I guess i'll try veryifing game cache through steam.

There should be a post-game show, yes.

Wait.... how do you guys not know that there is a post game show? The only time a post game show doesn't exist is when you are using the classic teams. Literally every other game in MyLeague and play now has a post game show.

Not trying to be a dink, just have no idea how you guys didn't know that.

Thanks for responding! I have always had post game reports. In every game, regular season and playoffs in Myleague. I have tried several times to verify files, no luck. Is there a way to remove an update or patch?

If you've backed up the .exe file, you can restore it. You'll run into issues connecting to the server for further updates/content, but you can play with the older version of the game that way.

Have the updates been going through on Steam?

And the only way to remove a patch is by placing an old .exe in the main 2K17 directory.

Postby bongo88 on Thu Feb 08, 2018 8:42 pm

still confused. considering this is the 2k18 board. 2k18 has a few game clips post-game, and sometimes a post game interview. i've never seen a show with shaq, ernie, post game. maybe somebody post a clip of 2k18 post game show.
2k17 has a post game show: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F-u4YeRA8qs .
so, once again, does 2k18 have a post game show? maybe i need to verify again with steam. yes, i've seen the post game interviews with myplayer.

Yes, that is it! I used to get it every single game. All I get is the pre-game and half-time ones now. Yes, this is on 2k18. No interviews, just the shows I am saying.

Is there a for sure a way to verify that I have the latest patch?

Sorry for not responding sooner guys, been away for the last couple of weeks.

There is no post-game show with Ernie, Kenny, & Shaq in 2K18 for any of the 5v5 game modes. Only pre-game and halftime.

There are cutscenes with them in post-game shows for MyCAREER.


Hope that clears it up.

I am not mistaken at all. For Years, all I play is myleague with the Los Angeles Lakers. NBA 2K17 AND 2K18 has had the post game with Shaq, Kenny and Ernie. Every single game! Unless, it was removed with a patch or because of modded files I have added over the months, I have no idea what happened!

Once again, NBA 2K18 has delivered. Everything from the pre, halftime and postgame shows with Shaq, Kenny and Ernie to courtside interviews with David Aldridge fits in here. Yes, we’ve seen this from NBA 2K in previous versions, but the improvement that the team has put in graphically and with the scripting is noticeable. In games where the home team goes on a run or might need a defensive stop and the momentum is high (think playoffs or key games), the screen shakes feverishly. This subtle but awesome touch shows the level of detail that the development team over at 2K really put into the game this year. There are different pregame introductions ranging from the game clip and soundtrack montages that we saw last year to lineup introductions and the singing of the national anthem. Of course audio detail has improved this year as well.

In the various modes of the game, the presentation adds little touches; MyCareer, in tandem with the story, has scenarios where you can get interviewed by the aforementioned David Aldridge if you have a good first half in a game. Playing well and having a standout game will earn you a postgame interview with either Shaq or Kenny. The pregame shootaround, where you’re a participant along with your teammates, is new to the game and is a neat addition.

The screen shaking is not realistic in any way shape or form, and its flat out annoying when you are playing. The "shaking" doesn't happen when you are watching a game on TV, it doesn't happen when you are at a game live, neither does balloons falling into the crowd.

Both are absolutley silly additions to the game.

I'm with Dee on that one. The screen shaking is an annoying gameplay mechanic, not a realistic presentation element.

I agree with the screen shaking, it is annoying! I apologize to whoever if I cut and pasted too much. I was just trying to show people that there is and should be a post game report.

Oh, that was from a review. Not surprising that a reviewer for that game would compliment that aspect of the game. After all, what are paid reviews for? If not paid reviews, that's what they get when they have people who don't know a lick about basketball writing reviews for a basketball game.

If you ever notice, all reviews from every source before a game is released is just about word-for-word the same. This shows me that they are probably given talking points, or even a pre-written review from the game company. I get my reviews from users who actually play the games.

Exactly.

It's really sad how the review system totally preys on people as well, if you think about it. It takes an independent mind that thinks outside the box to be able to research actual user reviews, and not buy into the bunk.

The reviews hardly ever actually talk about any of the issues with the 2k games. They completely skip all the relevant gameplay/art issues, just to talk it up. This makes 2K A LOT of money. Because as you know, the person who doesn't do outside research and just buys into these reviews, buys it and says to their buddies "Well dude, every site is giving it over an 8.5"

Publications don't want to risk their access and invitations to exclusive events. Nothing new about that (nor is it exclusive to 2K) when it comes to gaming journalism, unfortunately.

Of course, it's rampant among all titles/companies. Just hits be harder because I'm a basketball video game guy.

Can anyone else please confirm if the post game reports show up anymore in a myleague game? I would like to know if it was removed, or a mod I used did it, or I have a brain tumor, lol!
