Re: NBA 2K22 - All versions

I really hope they fix the shooting mechanics for this one. It was such a horrendous downgrade on 2K21. I only got a digital version of 2K21 when it was on sale really cheap. I kind of got used to it, but it was still very frustrating.

The Kareem/Dirk and KD cover is cool, but that's probably going to be the $100 version with all the BS DLC crap.

didn't they introduce an option a little after release to remove that tilt mechanic? Did that not revert it back?

I don't know. I haven't played it since maybe March. I thought you had the game too or did you pass on it?

Maybe if I get 2K22, I'll get the Candace Parker version. I really like her and what she's done for women's basketball. Plus, she's a good analyst on TNT.

I hated the extra 10 bucks they tacked on to the next gen version and they didn't do enough to change the switch version so I avoided it for a while until the PS5 version finally went on sale (at which point I had no time to play it other than a few exhibition games).

I think I'm going to do the same for this one unless reviews are just stellar.

Candace is a great analyst (that segment where she basically calls Shaq out is awesome) but she betrayed LA.

Kareem, Dirk, and KD is such an odd selections of players to share a cover.

I have sworn to myself up and down that there was no fucking way I was buying this game again, but I kind of want to just to get that Candace Parker version and show support for the female athletes.

The "gamer" uproar over a woman on the cover has been... as expected.

It's listed as the "WNBA 25th Anniversary Special Edition" but I haven't seen anything different about it other than the cover and availability (US and CA only).

I didn't understand that either. Why have KD on the cover with two retired players?

It feels like they wrote down the names of the 25 Greatest NBA Players and then drew three names out of a hat.

Re: NBA 2K22 - All versions

So the WNBA cover is going to be a Gamestop exclusive.

I mean, I like the WNBA and especially Parker but good luck with that. Look at all these skus:

If you really want that cover, just get it when it's like 10 bucks on clearance.

I'm curious, what is your issues with the franchise since you mentioned earlier you had sworn off buying it anymore? Game play, DLC crap, or that 2K has done very little to make the game better each year?

My issue is the only mode I am really interested in is the Park/City which is a VC fest, but mainly I am sick of watching EVERY other player for the other teams hits 3 balls at an 80% clip, while I miss shots constantly even when I am right on the white line (as close as you can be to a green release).

Is that lag or issues with your build? I know most players make it so even their power forwards get near max 3 point shooting.

Re: NBA 2K22 - All versions

I don't lag and my build is fine (over 90 3pt rating), I often wonder if there is some secret to shooting that I just don't know about.

Re: NBA 2K22 - All versions

I'm playing through 2k21 next gen. They really put a multiplayer requirement before you're able to bring your myplayer to the general city (where there's the training facility and stuff)? Or am I missing something? Ugh. Each version is worse than the last. Maybe this one bucks the trend but man they're going to have to show me something for me not to just wait it out like I did this year.
