NBA 2K16 PC Impressions thread

I saw one hadn't been started so I figured I'd start one.

Still waiting on install.

Server issues out of the gate. Couldn't connect despite repeated attempts. At this point, I'm impatient and will start MyCareer without getting to use my VC.

Re: NBA 2K16 PC Impressions thread

Probably the cheesiest intro I've ever seen in a ball game.

Feels way different than last year, control wise. Of course I'm used to 15's controls now but it still felt kind of jerky to me. The animations just don't seem as fluid to me this year. Only played one game though so I can't really render any kind of final judgement.

Performance wise it's fine. Playing on max settings @1440p. Pretty much stayed at the 100FPS cap from what I noticed. I'll check again in a bit to be sure and see how much it dips during cut-scenes.

Anyone had success entering their pre-order codes? Keeps coming back as invalid for me and I've tried entering it in a number of different way.

Only played first 30 min of My Career. Gameplay is SO much better. I'm actually enjoying playing offense for first time in years where it's more than just turbo blow by. Overall much cleaner game. My only complaint so far is audio is all over place volume wise during College recruiting.

I've got a memory leak problem. The game is using above 5GB of RAM and the main menu is unplayable.

Smh, already a problem with replays. Just did a quarter and when they show you the highlights it became all stuttery.

I have SLI GTX970, i7 4790K, 16GB ram playing on Acer Gsync 27" monitor I shouldn't have any problems running this. Why do they always mess up something?

Going to try to put the game to run at 120Hz instead of 144Hz to see if it fixes it.

Might be because you are SLI. SLI setups usually have to be driver updated to work properly with games.

Game looks insanely beautiful. The post play and the paint is really physical. The AI is no joke. Even on Pro the Timberwolves torched me when I was using the Lakers. The pre-game, halftime and post game show is the best in any sports game out now currently period and it isn't even close. The between quarters clips of a player sitting down talking is cool, very cool. Hearing the ref, players and coaches talk is insane.
