    Not only is the loading time ridiculous, I've had numerous issues with freezing and getting kicked from multiplayer. It is BY FAR one of the most frustrating games I've ever had to deal with. Fortunately for 2K, when things are going good it is fun as hell, and worth buying when it comes out.

    Yea the last NBA live game was 16 and it was okay, but they are hyping NBA live 18 up but I def agree with you. 2k is light years better. I think NBA live 18 is suppose to have WNBA on it, which I think is pretty cool! Some may not care about that though. Lol

    2k actually used to make a pro football and college basketball game as well. College Hoops 2k7 is the last college basketball game I ever bought. I used to enjoy Madden but now it just pisses me off.

    I think 2K has always made the superior basketball games. A lot of people liked ESPN/2K football but those games were never able to convert me from Madden. 2K had the graphics edge in football, but gameplay was Madden's strength, imo. That said, I haven't played Madden in at least two years.

    Yea, Madden used to be my favorite game. I don't think I've played the game in 3 or 4 years now. It just made me furious whenever I played someone. I feel like the opposing team would make every interception/catch/play possible. But whenever I got the ball I found some crazy way to turn it over. Agree about 2K having better graphics.

    Lol! I'm actually playing Madden 18 right now. I loved Colleg hoops 2k8. By far the best college basketball game ever made. 2k needs to bring back college hoops and ea sports needs to bring back NCAA football!! I miss those games.

    dang right it's a hassle bking. saved for a long time and got a ps4 today. got gta5 and fallout 4 used and a new ps4 that comes with 2 call of duty games, though now I realize I'll have to get dish out here to hook it up to the internet. hdmi cord wouldn't go into my newest tv. It's a flat screen SONY!! it should work. Then spent another hour trying to put the hdmi cord into the dish box and run it into the big screen that way. bout to throw it out in the weeds. don't want to look at it no more. Them fools at the store that kept trying to get me to buy a used ps4 for the exact same price as a new one with games could have mentioned this hdmi business

    @npreston you see where The Crew 2 is slated for mid year '18?

    I'm probably not getting COD this time. Torn between Gran Turismo and NFS. Both look awesome.

    I'm about to grab that new FIFA today.

    2k is fine, but I just prefer not to play online when, for whatever reason, the game speed slows down.

    I play with a buddy on the same console all the time and we usually turn the speed up to 60.

    The crew 2 looks great. My kids will definitely want to get it. I've already preordered Gran Turismo. Got the limited edition at GameStop. I'm going to build a racing cockpit out of PVC and get the steering wheel.

    Im also calling around to local junk yards for a driver seat. Nothing reasonable yet. The game is going to be amazing, and I love the franchise. Been looking forward to it for a long time, and my kids will have a blast with it, and it's my birthday soon... So eff it. I'm going big.

    Wait, what is that? Nintendo Switch? I don't know anything about it. Tell me more.

    And Preston, if you were REALLY smart you'd have 2k18 for the One, and play with me and Jimbo. We hit the court usually at least five nights a week, with the regular crew... we usually run two squads of three. Its good times.

    I have 2k18, but it's for the Four. PlayStation > Xbox. I thought for sure you'd know that. Winking

    This little console has been a lot of fun so far. Sucks I have to pack it back up in a couple of hours.

    Booooo... no, PS4 is NOT better, because we aren't on it:)

    Wait, tell me about the switch (That's what it is?) Is it like a preloaded game system with all the old school games on it?

    I really wish they would let Sony and Microsoft just merge their online networks. That way everyone can play with everyone.

    Me and @TheDude1 were talking about this last night. Cannot fugging wait, man. The map looks to be about twice the size of the first one. Hoping 2k can hold me over until then if I don't end up getting COD.

    I'd never knock anybody for liking that game, but it just wasn't for me. I liked the campaign part of it, but I got bored as hell with the multiplayer facet. I once found a dude just sitting on his horse in the desert. I guess the user was just inactive. I killed him repeatedly for about 2 hours. Not sure what the point was. It wasn't even fun. Sniping was also hard on that game.

    PS4

    This is the first Madden I've played since like..... Madden '08 on PS3. I went about 8 years without owning a gaming system in between. Just got Madden '18 for Christmas two weeks ago. I'm average I'd say. Playing primarily MUT but I don't feel like paying for players.

    Let me know when you get it.
