Reacting to The Neighborhood and What It Means for NBA 2K18 Yesterday we got our first glance at 2K Sports’ master plan with NBA 2K18, as they introduced us to The Neighborhood. In what is basically an attempt to combine all of the elements of MyPlayer into one open-world mode, 2K seems to have really tried something ambitious here. Despite the ambition, it seems the community reaction was one of excitement and worry that virtual currency is going to be a forced buy this season. But don’t take this introduction writer’s word for it, let’s see what OS Staffers have to say about The Neighborhood in NBA 2K18. Brandon Kosal At first glance, The Neighborhood concept is really cool. MyCareer has felt fairly closed off in past years. The openness this year should feel refreshing. The details were scarce, but I suspect you’ll work your way up from pick-up games in your neighborhood until you make it to the NBA. By itself, that isn’t all that intriguing. But within the construct of a living, breathing neighborhood, it could become addicting. 2K clearly put a lot of effort into MyCarer this year, which I suspect is likely their most popular and profitable game mode. The key word here is profitable because I can already see and hear the VC coins going cha-ching! Far be it from me to count someone else’s money. VC works and will continue to work for years to come. But for all the excitement I have for the changes this year, nothing let’s the air out of the balloon like a screenshot that appears to indicate I’ll need...

PES 2018 Demo Impressions: What's Good and What's Still Unknown Fresh off a successful beta and positive hype from Gamescom 2017, the folks over at Konami have released an updated build of PES 2018 for our gaming enjoyment. With no further delay, let’s dive right in. What I Like Dribbling – Dribbling is finally fun again. Yes, it might be a tad overpowered at times, but the responsiveness you feel when you have the ball at your feet with guys like Neymar is a revelation compared to prior versions of PES. Reliance on skills or tricks isn’t even required this year as quick flicks of the left stick coupled with a few acute taps of the sprint button can leave defenders flat footed. In a sport where 1-on-1 matchups out wide often make or break matches, it’s nice to not only put your defender on the back foot but to feel the anxiousness of trying to defend in these situations. In general, it feels as if Konami spent the majority of this development cycle enhancing the “on-the-ball” aspect of PES 2018. Free Kick Controls – In the rare instances that you are fouled (more on this later) in the opposition’s half, it’s great to see that the corner kick instructions (dash, near post, etc.) have carried over to free kicks. For too long free kicks were stagnant resulting in instances where only one attacker would make a run. Not only is this cleaned up in attack, but defensively it puts you under the gun as you now have to decide whether to man up or keep a high line in an attempt to draw the opposition offside. AI Is Dangerous On The Ball – For years, players such as Messi and Neymar were “just another guy” when controlled by the CPU. Far too easy to dispossess, these megastars were easily taken out of the game and a mere shell of themselves. In the demo (mainly on Superstar level though), these players are finally...

Top 50 Players in NHL 18 This week, EA Sports revealed plenty of NHL 18 player ratings. Cover star, Connor McDavid, took the top spot in both the young stars and the top 50 players with a 93 overall rating – up five points from his ranking last year, and blowing past many of the top stars and veterans of the NHL. EA Sports recently detailed the new ratings methodology in place for NHL 18 in a blog post. Most important to the young stars is that they are rated so they can step right out of the NHL Entry Draft and into the NHL directly. NHL 18 hits the ice on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on September 15. Check out the top 50 rated players in NHL 18 below, along with links to the top 10 at each position. 1.
