College basketball as a video game died long before the lawsuits that killed NCAA Football could do the job. A little more than a year ago, 2K Sports finally pulled the plug on the servers for College Hoops 2K8, the means through which most folks shared rosters reflecting the current year. But there still are ways to…
Last year at this time we got surprise news that MLB 2K was returning for one more year. Don't count on it this year. The series' Facebook page and official forums were wiped from existence, and all PC versions are gone from Steam, notes Pasta Padre. A statement from 2K Sports confirms the series' widely anticipated…
Once again, 2K Sports says it knows what the problem is with NBA 2K14. Ronnie Singh said yesterday developers are fixing crashes in the MyCareer/MyGM modes and the online "ThePark" mode. "We're getting back to normal everywhere else." Singh said. He's indicated he'll do a Reddit AMA "after a couple more things…
Earlier this afternoon, 2K Sports' Ronnie Singh—Ronnie2K on Twitter—gave everyone playing NBA 2K14 a code for a special pre-game player animation as a make-good for the online troubles that paralyzed the game this weekend. Naturally, when I went to enter the code on my PlayStation 4, 2K's servers were down.
Microtransactions don't work exactly like this in NBA 2K14, but this parody video by GoodGameBro clearly communicates how ridiculous some find the practice when it intrudes on their favorite sports game. Actually, you can purchase dunks, they're just signature animations for your created MyPlayer.
A recently released patch for the Xbox One version of NBA 2K14 appears to have done little to solve the repeated crashes occurring in the game's MyCareer mode. While 2K Sports says it knows what the problem is, it has no timetable on when a solution may arrive.
Heading into this console transition my opinion was that, of all the genres that could possibly sell a new Xbox or PlayStation, sports would come in last. Despite the richer visuals and refined experiences I've seen so far, that opinion still stands.
Whatcha gonna do when Glitchemania runs wild all ove… oh, God, no! NO! What's happened to Yokozuna's spine?!
Twenty-five years ago my best friend and I set up a wrestling ring in my basement—four barstools for the turnbuckles, some old mattresses for the canvas. The actual wrestling we did was hesitant, unplanned and uncompelling. But man, the stuff we did out of the ring makes me smile to this day.
One of the most confounding things about the NBA 2K series over the last two years is why two special modes—"The Jordan Challenge" from NBA 2K11 and "NBA's Greatest" from NBA 2K12—have neither carried forward nor, at least, been re-released as DLC. But a curious domain name registered to 2K Sports may change that.
Eight years ago I convinced myself I needed a new video gaming experience. I'd been dragging a canvas deck chair into the living room, sitting three feet from the screen just so I could make out the receivers from defensive backs in Madden, or tell a curveball from a fastball in MVP Baseball. I finally said enough in…
The good news is there's going to be a lot of extra stuff in WWE 2K14. The bad news is they want you to buy a $20 season pass for it. Three packs contain extra wrestlers—including the NWO—and others will have customization options and loads of extra wrestling moves. Details here and in this video.
Maybe people aren't cooing over it the way they are the NBA 2K14 hype reel released Thursday, but NBA Live 14's gameplay trailer does have its virtues.
Yesterday, 2K Sports and EA Sports released looks at NBA 2K14 and Madden NFL 25 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. At best, both are whelming—maybe not under-, certainly not over- . Madden, however did show a little more.
The third of three sports titles releasing on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 at launch arrived on shelves today—NBA 2K14—but if reviews and sales figures for its peers are any indication, fans appear to be waiting for the next console generation before they buy the sports titles closing out this one. If at all.
For the third straight year, 2K Sports' NBA 2K series has remade its control set, which imposes a learning curve on everyone—even the series' most dedicated players. The game's lead gameplay designer called the repeated changes "kind of regrettable," and "something that I'm a little embarrassed of" in a podcast today.
It's possible that basketball fans have been spoiled by the NBA 2K series, which over the preceding four titles has churned out some of the most conspicuous year-to-year improvements from the brutal treadmill of annual sports video games development. Looking back, the highly polished gameplay and presentation that…
There's always a little bit of a Where's Waldo game when NBA 2K releases its first big trailer in the summer. New inclusions are featured without being highlighted or called out with text. So what can you spot in this reel?
When it announced a special campaign mode this week, WWE 2K14 hinted the game's roster would be the largest ever by virtue of the fact more than 45 classic bouts would be featured in "30 Years of Wrestlemania." The question was how many wrestlers would be making repeat appearances to fill out that card.
