Playing some of the VC-earning modes

В теме 1 сообщение

Last year's game featured 38 episodes of 2KTV. Every one of these episodes gives players a chance to earn NBA 2K19 MT for answering questions and engaging in surveys. You can usually earn near 400 VC in the show, and it's pretty enlightening overall.


The series runs once a week. In case you used all three of these strategies in concert, then it is possible to realistically make 13,000 VC a week without playing a single game. That is not even counting what it is possible to make from picking up the controller and really playing some of the VC-earning modes.


NBA 2K19 could play brilliantly, but its own off-the-court problems get in the way of its success. The game provides a tremendous simulation of the sport, with sparkling presentation to match along with a renewed attention on the inner-city origins that lots of NBA athletes share. Subsequently developer Visual Concepts takes this otherwise stellar game on a detour toward microtransactions.


The NBA 2K series was on this path for years, but its emphasis on microtransactions reaches a new peak in NBA 2K19. Often it feels like the better bits of the game -- of which there are lots -- get lost in its own obsession with squeezing more money out of its own players.


The rise of microtransactions in the NBA 2K series parallels the rising tumult of this real-life NBA offseason. This season, 2K Sports needed to alter NBA 2K19's cover after having a blockbuster trade put its cover athlete at a different uniform. To better catch that expanding disarray in the league's offices, NBA 2K19 presents a narrative to its franchise mode, MyGM. A participant -- your established MyPlayer, especially -- suffers a career-ending knee accident and afterwards takes up the reins as overall manager. Trade Kyrie Irving away or put him at a different place; that is the crux of a team GM gig, with a sign of occasional internal team play involved. It's a stretch to call it a story mode since the menu does, but small expansions to MyGM contain dialogue exchanges and participant interactions fresh to NBA 2K19.


Not only is there a story in MyGM, there is nevertheless a bevy of MyPlayer options. As opposed to invite Spike Lee to direct MyCareer (as he did back in NBA 2K16), NBA 2K19's approach settles down, focusing on the tumultuous rookie year of former road baller DJ. It's largely satirical toward locker room culture, a reprieve from the thick drama of Madden NFL 18's Longshot as well as previous years of NBA 2K. For instance, DJ's representative is not a lot of one, but he does possess a catchphrase: "Eat what you kill" The characters do not seem to comprehend what that means (and they say so), but NBA 2K19 runs with it for the humor.
