JaoSming’s Predictions: Special Teams

When we buy EA or 2K’s NBA game we expect to play as the 30 current NBA teams. We expect that the rosters will be updated daily thanks to the precedent set by Living Rosters and DNA updates. And we will expect to play as the Brooklyn Nets for the ’13 games. In my opinion, the special teams in an NBA game can have a drastic effect on the game’s replayability, so that is what I will look at today.

JaoSming’s Predictions: Franchise Modes

Today I am going to lay out my predictions regarding the franchise modes in the basketball games coming out in the fall of 2012. Even though these modes are played for the longest periods of time by the most hardcore of basketball gamers, they rarely get any huge updates to make the mode more accessible. With that in mind, take a look at my predictions for Association and Dynasty modes for NBA 2K13 and EA NBA 13.

JaoSming’s Predictions: Career Modes

Writing about those online ideas I had yesterday really got me hyped for this year’s games. I really hope I am right with those predictions since the online stability and utilization in basketball games is severely lacking. Today I am looking at the core single player experience in each game, My Player and Become Legendary (or Be a Pro). Even though Become Legendary hasn’t successfully debuted yet, I am still expecting it to be featured in EA’s next NBA simulation game.

JaoSming’s Predictions: Online

One aspect that EA dominated 2K in year after year was NBA Live’s online speed and consistency. NBA 2K10 made a run at Live 10 with its My Player centric Crew mode, but simply being able to handle the amount of players online pushed Live 10’s multiplayer ahead. For the upcoming games EA will have to contend with Online Associations and new additions 2K will bring to the online table.

JaoSming’s Predictions: Gameplay

Graphics are important to me in a basketball video game, but what keeps me playing throughout the year is 100% gameplay. Today I am going to lay out my predictions for the gameplay changes I think each game will implement next year. Click Read More to take a look at my predictions.

JaoSming’s Predictions: Graphics

So far I have made some predictions on the cover athlete and presentation elements of NBA 2K13 and the return to simulation basketball gaming from EA. So far my predictions have been pretty safe, but graphics have always been a grey area for sports games with drastic improvements seemingly coming out of the blue. What do I think will happen this year? Click Read More and find out.

JaoSming’s Predictions: Presentation

Yesterday I attempted to predict which NBA players will show up on the covers of EA’s simulation NBA game coming out this fall and NBA 2K13. Today I am looking at each games’ presentation, making some ill-advised predictions, and sharing some of my wishlist items. Read on to check them out.

JaoSming’s Predictions: Cover Athlete

As previously outlined by Andrew, basketball gamers have a lot to look forward to in the coming fall of 2012. The return of EA’s NBA simulation game and yet another iteration of NBA 2K should destroy our free time and cause many sick days for working and student gamers.

Following my “successful” predictions about NBA 2K12 last year, I thought I would make another run at predicting what features the upcoming basketball games will have this coming fall. Although this year I plan on adding in some personal wishlist ideas as well.

Just to get it out of the way, I will first attempt to predict who the cover athlete will be for both games. I still feel that some basketball gamers put too much emphasis on the cover athlete to decide which game they buy. But if I could look past NBA 2K10’s Kobe Bryant cover, then I hope everyone else will decide by the game itself instead of the cover.

What basketball gamers can look forward to in 2012

2012 is upon us and before we know it, we’ll be entering a new season of previews for this year’s basketball video games. However, before those previews begin to come out and the games themselves eventually drop in October, there’ll be official updates for NBA 2K12 and NBA Jam: On Fire Edition, along with plenty of community-made mods released for the PC versions of NBA 2K and NBA Live.

Join me as I take a look at some of the things basketball gamers have to look forward to in 2012!
