Every year for my whole gaming life I have pre-ordered and purchased the new 2K game (Live before that) without an ounce of hesitation. It has been the one game that is an absolutely lock for me every year no matter what.
The last few months of 2K20 i barely played and had pretty much decided i wasn’t going to buy 2K21, as it’s most likely going to be the megacunt money-grabbing shitstorm it has been for the last few years. I haven’t read any reviews about it, havent looked at gameplay footage, screenshots, nothing, nada, zip. I felt completely done with this franchise and that this abusive relationship was now over.
But now I’m sitting here on the fucking pre-order screen wondering if I should pull the trigger on this mamba edition…
What should I do?
Anyone wanna talk me off the ledge?
just don’t spend money and think of building your team without spending as a game within the game.
if you feel stuck then allow urself to buy some MT every month, but have a budget and stick to it. Say $20 or 200K MT max every month. Your max would be $240 assuming you play every month for a year and you buy MT every month, which if your NMS endeavor has success that number would be way lower.
IMO if there’s a year to skip 2k this would be it… next gen coming and literally the same roster in the game for the next few months, obviously that imo means the first promo will prolly be a free agent promo or something like that, but historically every game that gets a yearly release and a new system is coming doesn’t get much attention added to it, that’s how I feel this 2k will be
Yeah historically the next gen version usually gets stuck with a lite version of the game, while current gen gets the copy n paste treatment. I won’t be jumping onto next gen for about a year so I’d have to accept that they’ll start to prioritise updating the PS5 game from about the midway point of the cycle
I think that I will buy it since I can’t play basketball outside because of the pandemic.
myteam is addictive and requires much time & energy just like a job. Its good only if you have much spare time or if you are able to find a way to play without it slowing you down on whatever you doing IRL. If you can’t, then just play park.
