NBA 2K13 has taken over my life for the past week. The release of 2K Sports' basketball title has grown to a Madden-like event, and this year's version isn't a disappointment. I have covered the game extensively here on Bleacher Report, and my YouTube channel has over 40 NBA 2K13 videos currently posted.
That said, this episode of Franchise Mode is NBA 2K-heavy.
Here is a breakdown of what to expect in this episode:
NBA 2K13 Modes Overview
From the extensive My Career mode, to My Team and the awesome Shoe Creator, I'll give you a taste of the expansive package that is NBA 2K13.
WWE 13 DLC Schedule Announced
THQ recently announced the schedule for DLC (downloadable content) for the upcoming WWE 13 release on October 30. Fan Axxess has returned this year. Find out what you have to do to partake in all of the WWE 13 extras.
Madden 13 Edited Rosters
EA has finally announced a title update that will allow gamers to enter their Connected Careers with edited rosters. Check out the details in the video.
Speaking of extras, I'm working on a draft class for NBA 2K13. With no College Hoops game to import draft classes from, creating a class is the only way to have any semblance of the real rookies in your Association mode experiences.
I'm using photos to get as close as I can to the prospects faces, tattoos and accessories. Check out the video to see my progress thus far.
The Franchiseplay YouTube channel has been heavily dedicated to all the new releases over the past three or four months. That will continue until WWE 13 is released. After THQ drops its mega-wrestling title, there won't be another major sports video game release until the baseball games (MLB the Show and MLB 2K) are released in the spring.
The original series will carry the day until then. This section will give you an idea of what to expect for the coming week.
On the Hard Drive
The top plays have a strong NBA 2K13 influence. Who says Derrick Rose is injured? D-Rose definitely contributes to this version of On the Hard Drive. Check it out.
