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.

Eleventh Official NBA 2K12 Roster Update Released

The eleventh official roster update for NBA 2K12 is now available and can be obtained automatically as long as your PC, Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 is connected to the Internet. You can access the latest roster update by using the Reset Roster function under the Options menu; please note that you may have to reset the rosters a couple of times before the latest update shows up. As always, I recommend saving a copy of the new rosters once they’ve been loaded.

Glancing at the new update, it does not appear as though any new players have been added, however injury status has now been cleared for all players. This has presumably been done for the benefit of Online Association, which has also received the roster update and according to Ronnie, will be in line with future updates moving forward. Although no players are flagged as injured in the latest update, the roster does include updated rotations with players who are currently out of action appearing on the inactive list for their respective teams.

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.

New NBA 2K12 Roster Update Out This Week

Ronnie has posted a Tweet regarding the next official roster update for NBA 2K12, which will apparently be available before the weekend is through.

There will be another roster update before the end of weekend & it will reflect in OA. OA rosters should be inline w/ regular going forward

In response to a question, he also suggested that the roster updates will be likely be coming out once a week from here on out, barring a big move. Remember that you can also follow the NBA 2K Insider here on Twitter and provide constructive feedback for future roster updates.

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.

NBA 2K12 Jersey Codes

2K Sports have revealed some new jersey unlock codes for NBA 2K12 via the official Facebook page. These must be entered on the Codes screen, which can be found under Extras in the Features menu.

Hcsilapadatu -Secondary Road Unis (76ers/Jazz/Kings/Mavericks)
Ibyasmliancbhlald – Christmas Unis (Bulls/Celtics/Heat/Knicks/Lakers/Mavericks)
Albkbinkcca – Heat: Back in Black
Liyrimta – Raptors: Military Night

It seems the codes are only for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of NBA 2K12 however, as they do not appear to work for the PC version of the game.

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.

Small Update on NBA 2K12 PC Patch

Ronnie has answered a question on Twitter regarding the official patch for NBA 2K12 PC. Although he does not provide an ETA, he notably mentions that the patch is currently with QA.

PC Patch is with QA. The roster update his last night on PC as well, just have to manually click Refresh Roster

Hopefully, this means the PC patch is not too far away. In previous years, delays have arisen with the PC patch due to a lack of coordination with digital distributors, resulting in an inability to push the patch through for fear of causing problems with online play. The patch for NBA 2K11 PC was ultimately released in early February and it seems we’re looking at a similar timeframe this year.
