Crew Mode Officially Announced For NBA 2K14

NBA 2K14 Cover Art

If you deduced that 2K Sports’ cryptic teasers were referring to the return of Crew Mode, you have been proven correct. Crew has officially been announced for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of NBA 2K14, as gamers can take their MyPLAYER, create their own logo and face off in three-on-three and five-on-five games with other Crews online. The mode will not be featured in the PC, PlayStation 4 or Xbox One versions of the game.

2K Sports have also released a trailer hyping the return of Crew, which you can check out below or watch here on YouTube if you can’t see the embedded video. What do you think of the news? Sound off in the comments below and join in the discussion that’s taking place here in the NBA 2K14 section of the NLSC Forum.

Cryptic Teasers Continue, NBA 2K14 Developer Videos Coming Soon?

The cryptic teasers for NBA 2K14 continue as Ronnie has posted another couple of Tweets mentioning the #3R335 hashtag, as well as the numbers 35 3335. He also invites us to “break the code” in regards to 35 3335, while taunting us with the remark “when you think you have the answer, we change all the questions”. While many fans have deduced that the teasers are referring to Crew mode based on the clues so far, it seems that there’s still time for speculation.

In another Tweet, Ronnie has mentioned shooting some Developer Insight videos, which presumably means they’ll be coming in the near future. The Insight videos were generally well received last year, allowing the producers to better illustrate the features and improvements that were being talked about in developer blogs. We’ll of course be posting those videos when they do come out but in the meantime, feel free to post your thoughts and speculation in the comments below, as well as take the discussion to the NBA 2K14 section of the Forum.

Cryptic NBA 2K14 Teaser: #3R335

NBA 2K14 Cover Art

Both the official NBA 2K Facebook page and Ronnie 2K have posted a cryptic teaser for NBA 2K14. The Facebook post simply reads #3R335, while Ronnie’s Instagram post features a photograph of him wearing a 2K Sports hoodie in front of a green screen and the comment “Seems important”, along the aforementioned mysterious hashtag.

Glancing at some of the comments on those posts, so far the popular interpretation is that it’s referring to the return of Crew mode. No doubt we’ll find out exactly what it means in the not too distant future, but in the meantime feel free to offer your own guesses in the comments below, as well as in this thread in the NBA 2K14 section of the NLSC Forum.

The Friday Five: Top 5 Basketball Game Experiences

It’s Friday, already? It is indeed, so the time has come for another Friday Five! For those of you who are checking out The Friday Five for the first time and are wondering what it’s all about, this is a feature that I post every Friday in which I give my thoughts on a topic that’s related to basketball video games, the real NBA or another area of interest to our community, either as a list of five items or in the form of a Top 5 countdown.

It’s been a couple of months since I’ve done a Top 5 for The Friday Five, so this week I thought I’d give the lists a rest and compile a countdown instead. If you’ve been reading the Friday Fives for a while or have seen some of my other previous editorials, you’ll know that I’m big on game modes that offer an immersive experience and significant replay value. Today I’m taking a look back at some of the good times I’ve had in those modes, as I count down my Top 5 Basketball Game Experiences.
