It’s Friday and the weekend is looming, so I’ve got another edition of The Friday Five coming your way. If you haven’t checked out The Friday Five before and you’re 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.
We’re in the final countdown to the release of the current gen version of NBA 2K14, which will be available in stores on October 1st (and barring any delays, via digital distribution as well). As soon as we get our hands on the game, we’ll be checking out the new features and hoping to see all of the improvements that have been talked about, while also hoping that we don’t come across any gamebreaking issues. What’s the best way to start playing a new basketball video game? That’s what I’m investigating in this week’s Friday Five, with five suggestions for you to consider.
