10 Features We Would Have Loved in NBA 2K13

Click here for all of our coverage of NBA 2K13

The NBA 2K franchise has been the perfect supplement to the basketball fandom experience for many people for quite some time now. It’s not always perfect, but we love it nonetheless. It amps us up to see the new crop of rookies and gives us the first shot at dominating with Dwight in a Lakers uniform. This year’s edition, NBA 2K13, looks to be one of the best editions yet. Building on the success of their MyPlayer game mode with a new MyCareer mode, introducing an Ultimate Team style MyTeam mode, and continuing to incorporate basketball legends into this year’s game, is 2K poised to dominate yet another year of sports video gaming. That being said, there are always some things we’d all love to see make it into the game. Some are realistic and some are absurd. Unfortunately, none on this list are in the game.

Video: NBA 2K13 Developer Insight #6 – Sneakers

NBA 2K13

Some of the Dime crew was at the NBA 2K13 launch party last night in New York City, and apparently, the game was so attractive, a few of the guys said, “I think I’m coming out of video game retirement.” We’ve seen it all so far from 2K Sports, but in this video, we take a look at a long overlooked aspect of the game: the sneakers. Sure, you could have the greatest game in the world, but if the gear isn’t right (and seeing the same generic sneakers over and over again gets annoying), then it takes something away from the product.
