"If you miss the target too far to the left or right, your shot will miss in that direction. And as I mentioned above with the new slider sets, even the slightest degree might be the difference between a make and an airball on Hall of Fame, while itís quite a bit more forgiving on the easier difficulties."

This gives me major pause and instant concern. Does this mean that no shot will A) go in using the stick unless it is properly centered, B) that the difference between a shot being drained and completely missing the basket (which is a fairly rare NBA occurrence in the first place) is a literal centimeter, or C) that this mechanic will be out-and-out broken and make it too easy to guarantee a make (which also is not "true to life." At any rate, this change in particular is very concerning.

So whether itís your first time playing against the CPU in Quick Play, messing around with your buddies in the Park, or battling in a high stakes Ante Up or competitive Pro-Am match, thereís a wide range of gameplay experiences and definitely something for everyone in NBA 2K18, NBA 2K19, NBA 2K20 and*NBA 2K21. I'm Just Saying.

We all are going to buy the game regardless and I dont understand why...nevermind.

I can't wait to check the new shooting mechanic and standing layups.

optimistic that the changes to the right stick will actually improved the latency in dribble moves/shooting animations

gone are the days where videos were coupled with the blogs, cause this is clearly an instance where a video would alleviate much ambiguity and confusions with the new shot stick aiming for both shooting and layups

unfortunately it's always a bit worrying when a gameplay blog mentions of majority offensive changes and on the defensive side it just come off as "TRUST ME BRO ITS GOOD"..I just hope defense is parallel with the offensive upgrades to keep the game balance and not too overpowering

All I see is shiny new objects for cheesers to play with. Nothing in here even waves at trying to build sim basketball.


I wish I was surprised.

so you mean because you aim 1į too far to the left, your player will perform a fancy dribbling instead of just going up for the shot?
