Your basketball gaming habits

Postby cavs4872 on Sun Sep 23, 2018 3:04 pm

Do we have a thread for this? I know we have a general "Games you're playing right now" thread, but that hardly includes NBA.

What are you guys playing now that the new games have dropped, and what modes?

Myself, I'm still getting light work with NBA Live 10 for my franchise story; I haven't yet felt the Live 19 bug, so other than that, I'm splitting time in 2K19 between Triple Threat online, Park and the Under Armour Cages.

Pretty simple for me :
- Quick games on all 2k since 2k9
- Myleague on last version

I've made a start on MyCAREER, just in case the NLSC squad does get into Pro-Am this year. I'm still deciding which team to start a MyLEAGUE game with. I've also played a few Challenges in Ultimate Team, and made it through to getting drafted in The One.

I never change. Still enjoying my Live 06 dynasty.

I've tried playing 2K18 on the Switch, but the movements feel... sticky? Feels like there's input delay, so I can't properly react on the court. I've pretty much given up on it.

I got 2K18 on Switch so I could play Playground games on the toilet (don't judge). It's definitely a trip. I actually use my Switch, so the fact that everything automatically downloads to that SD card and you can't change that unless you remove it is frustrating; I've already ran out of space, but have plenty of internal memory, so I have to remove the SD card anytime I want to install something.

So I actually went back to 2K18 this morning to test out some old builds I had dumped VC into and took a peak into my MyTEAM (which I had put considerable effort into) and had the oddest experience: I didn't recognize any of the players I had, the menus looked super weird... it looked like a game I had never played; bizarre to say the least. It freaked me out. I had to get out of there. :lol:

Oddly enough, I'm spending more time with MyTEAM in 2K19 than any other mode; I had initially set out to run a dynasty story (which I really don't know what is going on with) primarily and then just play park secondary, but instead I'm nearly exclusively playing MyTEAM because in a way it's kind of the best of both worlds. First of all, they are overly generous with the locker codes, but it has the MyLEAGUE aspect of managing a team, and then Triple Threat is just like playing Park (but you don't have annoying teammates).

I actually went back and played some MyCAREER in NBA 2K18 on PC this evening (basically just to get some Steam Achievements) and yeah, it felt a bit strange. If nothing else, it reinforced how they've improved the approach to shooting mechanics in NBA 2K19.

Yes. The shooting in 2K18 felt much quicker.

There was also the issue of Good releases basically being nerfed Greens. Overall, I like shooting in NBA 2K19 a lot more.
