it's hard to get a feel for exactly how much things have change

  • The shot-stick NBA 2K Coins mechanic feels like a direct answer to issues with latency online. Even though the demo does not feature the ability to play online games, it's easy to see a future where most online players will use the aimed shot meter rather than the old timed meter (that remains accessible via the square or X button). Rather than trying to guess how much latency there'll be with each jump shot, it needs to be a lot more efficient to pull back on the analog stick and aim the shot rather.

    Still, aiming shots is unquestionably the harder of both choices as matters currently stand. I'm excited to have a brand-new skill to master, but it is good to have both options available.

    In only five matches (the max the demo allows), it's hard to get a feel for exactly how much things have changed. It does seem clear to me that the new aim-meter mechanic will be divisive and could possibly alter the internet experience in important ways. A few smaller problems have seen any improvement, but most of the heritage gameplay issues stay present. It's apparent that this is nowhere near the franchise's biggest step forward, but the shot-stick alone is enough to open the doorway for tons of chances.
