Thumbs up The Official RF NBA 2K13 Thread

This sounds good

Quote:
Last year, gamers and basketball fans alike went absolutely nuts recreating and reliving the most exciting moments of Michael Jordan's career (at least, virtually) in the groundbreaking "NBA 2K11." How do you top it? How about recreating the best moments in the careers of 15 of the NBA's greatest players, then giving gamers the ability to test the current crop of ballers out in a battle of say, DR. J's Sixers versus LeBron and the Heat.



That's the concept behind "NBA 2K12's" new NBA's Greatest mode. In the feature, gamers will play through some of the most memorable moments of 15 legends and their teams, including Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Larry Bird, Dr. J, and Kareem Abdul Jabbar. As you play through the mode, you will then be able to unlock these teams and legends in order to match them up against current greats like Kobe's Lakers and Dirk's Mavs.

"One of the things we're really proud of as a franchise is that we've transcended video games and have become part of the talk about basketball and the NBA," says Jason Argent, 2K's vice president of marketing. "So we're going to leverage that with 'NBA 2K12' as every person who loves to debate sports, every person in every barber shop and bar and everywhere else always wonders: What would happen if today's Lakers played one of the Jordan teams?



"We're playing into that with NBA's Greatest. It's really the next evolution of what everyone loved about The Jordan Challenge."



And while 2K has only announced five of the legends who will be appearing in the mode so far, they say part of the fun will be to hear the debate on who the remaining ten players should be.



"We want to get people talking," says Argent. "We want to get fans engaged in the next couple of weeks before we announce the rest of the roster."



Maybe that means I'll finally get a Chris Mullin, Run TMC team. Talk about a squad made for video games.

Doubt they'll go as far back as those guys, but it would be pretty sweet if they were included. I'm predicting Wilkins, Drexler, Barkley, Miller... basically anyone who was on the Dream Team.

If not then i'd say it'll be from a list of...

Hakeem Olajuwon, Isiah Thomas, Charles Barkley, John Stockton, Karl Malone, Reggie Miller, David Robinson, Clyde Drexler, Domonique Wilkins, Denis Rodman, Moses Malone

Graphics look similar to 2k11 which is great because I didn't think they needed to upgrade that aspect of the game. What they do need to fix are 3 things (in my order):

1. Online - Way too much lag online and shooting because much harder as a result. All shooting forms including jumpshots have a later release online than offline.

2. Gameplay - The gameplay is this game is the best it's ever been but there are still lot's of cheesing tactics in the game such as the spin dunk, the pump fake glitch, the hopstep standing dunk, the power dribble dunk, the up and under move, just to name a few. If these were fixed this game would be near perfect.

3. My Player - Not that I really care because I don't ever play that feature of the game, but I hear lots of people complain about it.

I still say Isiah Thomas will be in the game. Also, isn't this the "legends" of the game. I'm under the impression that it likely doesn't include Bryant since he's already going to be in the game anyway and is still a force in the NBA. I have a feeling that Shaq might also not be on the list when all is said and done, since he's been retired all of only a couple months. I would say take Kobe/Shaq off and add Thomas + one of Malone/Stockton/Drexler.

I would love to see Rodman be one of them, that would be fun. But either way i think we'll be happy with the list of players included.

Nothing really blows me away on the soundtrack. I'd love it if 2K gave me the option to upload my own songs.

I think they do, at least for Xbox I think. They allow you to customize arena sounds, so I don't see why you can't customize the soundtrack as well.

Looks good.


On a side note, anyone that complains about the movement of the players in NBA 2K should play MLB 11 The show..... It's way worse and it's not even close. I just bought it and can't believe how awkward the player movement is at times.

It doesn't look like 2K changed a lot. The graphics don't look that upgraded, and the players still look emotionless.

The 15 featured legends for 2K12:

Quote:
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Wilt Chamberlain, Julius "Dr. J" Erving, Patrick Ewing, Karl Malone, Hakeem Olajuwon, Scottie Pippen, Michael Jordan (again), Oscar Robertson, Bill Russell, John Stockton, Isiah Thomas, and Jerry West
NBA 2K12 unveils list of 15 in-game legends - Ball Don't Lie - NBABlog - Yahoo! Sports

And read the rest of the article, it's really funny.

Quote:
Patrick Ewing: Employing your best skills of stealth, dip the Knicks' envelope at the 1985 draft lottery in maple syrup with no one noticing.

John Stockton: Elbow players in the face at least 20 times without getting called for a single foul.

Jerry West: Average at least 40 points over the course of the NBA Finals without winning.
LOL!

Hmmm, Jerry West, Oscar Robertson, Bill Russell, Wilt Chamberlain and DR. J should be interesting. I think i made a couple of those suggestions but someone said they won't go that far back which made sense. But i'm curious to see how they will look and how this game will look overall. I'm getting excited for this.

Are we going to be able to play in black and white when playing with Russell. If so that's sick!
