Great read. Everything sounds amazing. Hope it plays out the same with the controller in hand.

Re: NBA 2K11 Developer Insight "Making a Smarter Game"

I don't know how you could not be excited after reading that. I have been begging sports devs to separate casual/standard/simulation settings out of the box for years. Finally it looks like they have implemented that.

The new tendencies sound outstanding. They just need to make sure they work as intended... it seemed like some of the tendencies in 2K10 (fadeaway, for example) didn't really do much.

Sounds like fast breaks were given some attention to, which is good to see.

The stuff that really has me excited is the work put into defense. If they can nail that aspect of the game, it would really launch this series into new heights. It always seems like b-ball games put all of the innovation and effort into offense, and defense is just an afterthought.

Of course, I've learned not to go insane over these hype-type pieces, so I'm going to temper my expectations. But it sounds like their focusing on all the right things so far, which is encouraging.

Casual: This is the setting you want if you like up and down play with lots of dunks and highlight moments. There won’t be a whole lot of stoppages and you’ll see higher scoring across the board. Arcade-style play is probably the best way to describe it.
oh boy i can see those IGN vids now....lol

this was a great read!

If the next blog is titled "Our Online Servers Actually Work This Year (No really,they do)", I will wait outside Gamestop for the next two months.
