My favorites new team on this list are the Nets, Nuggets, Chicago Bulls, and Knicks. While I do enjoy to majority of these new classic team, there are complaints I have with this list. My first complaint is why is there two historic Grizzlies teams in the game. I don’t know who ask of these teams or one of the developers is a huge Memphis fan but none of these teams are not worthy to be in the game. These teams have the same worth as ’00 Portland Trail Blazers. My second complaint is the Golden State Warriors and Indiana Pacers are in the time too soon. Don’t get wrong, these two teams are classic teams and should be in the game. However, I feel that it’s too soon to put them in NBA 2k18.  There are better teams that could take their spot such as the 2009 Orlando Magic. My last complaint is there is no ’09 or ’10 Lakers in the game. This is most requested team of all teams by fans. I feel that there is a reason of why they don’t have it. On Ronnie2k’s twitter, he discussed about how they weren’t able to get everyone’s rights for the game (Rasheed Wallace and Gilbert Arenas) due to either players asked for too much money or they don’t their likeness in the game at all. This could be explain why Lamar Odom and Andrew Bynum are not in the game. Overall, I like majority of these new teams and all-time teams for every franchise. As long the gameplay is way better than NBA 2K17, this could be a good for 2K.

NBA Live 18 Demo Impressions: (Can it Compete with NBA 2K18?)

After a year hiatus, NBA Live returns with a demo of NBA Live 18. Now, the big question is: Can it beat NBA 2K18? Despite of not playing NBA 2k18, I would NBA Live cannot beat 2K. However, I can say this is good alternative from NBA 2K. NBA Live team did a good job with this year despite some flaws. But first, let’s talk about the positives.

Positives:

“The One” is better than MyCareer

I will admit, “The One” storyline and gameplay is way better than NBA 2K’s MyCareer. With the storyline being about coming back from ACL injury by playing in street games and the draft combine, I enjoy it. Also, they have the crew from “First Take” discussing about your player which is pretty cool. The customization in the game is greater than 2K’s by having different hairstyles, better face scan, and more clothing options. Last thing I will praise about this mode is the upgrading system. I really love this system in NBA Live because it requires you to play and be good at the game to earn upgrades instead of spending money to get quick upgrades.

Dribble Moves

I know some people are going differ with this but I like the dribble moves in NBA Live 18. At first, I didn’t like at all because I was used to 2K’s dribbling control. Once I got the handle of it, I started to have with it.

Negatives

Inside Shooting needs tuning

For the gameplay, inside game is a major problem in the game. For every great layup animation, there is an atrocious animation. It usually frustrating for the defense side. I seen multiple times where guards would make a contested layup with four guys surrounding him. Unless he’s Michael Jordan, that should not happen regularly. EA Sports needs to tune this before the release date.

Servers

The servers in the demo are pretty inconsistent. In one game, it works really good. On the next few games, it get pretty terrible where I get kicked out. There are plenty of players complaining about this. I found usually because EA always have good servers compared to 2k. This needs to be fix so EA can have an advantage on NBA 2k.

All in all, I think NBA Live 18 is pretty  decent game and I would recommend it to pre order it to get it for $40. If I give a rating, it would be a 6 or 7 out of 10.

What you think about NBA Live 18 Demo?

Madden NFL 18: Gameplay Impressions

Finally, we have got gameplay from Madden NFL 18 yesterday. Multiple youtubers who went to EA Studios captured footage of the game and released it. Here’s some footage from iMaveriq, CookieBoy, KayKayEs, and Sport Gamers Online:

Aftrr watching these videos, I can say that the presentation improved a lot. Some player models look good, thw grass is more detailed. However, I was disappointed that there wasn’t huge weather effects such as wear and tear during rain and snow games. Other than that, I can’t really judge the gane until I play it on the 17th but this left me excited to play it.

Top 10 Worst NFL Uniforms

Hello, my name is Anthony Payton and today I’m here to discuss to my top ten worst uniforms in the NFL.  Here, we going to see some of the ugliest, oddly-choice uniforms I ever seen.

10. Miami Dolphins Dark Blue Jersey (2004)

This uniform was never worn on the field but was sold in stores and in ESPN NFL 2K5. Despite that, this jersey is bad because it doesn’t match the Dolphins color scheme.

9. New Orleans Saints Gold Jersey

Also, this is also called the Brown Mustard Jersey from fans and critics. This jersey with the black pants is really an eyesore to look at.

8. Seattle Seahawks Lime Green Jersey

Before the last year’s Color Rush uniform, Seattle released this jersey in 2009 and never came back. This uniform was ridiculed by fans and analysts across the country. However, I have a soft spot for this jersey and only like it during night games.

7. Minnesota Vikings Yellow Jersey (2003) (2011)

6. Jacksonville Jaguars Color Rush Jersey

When the Color Rush uniforms was revealed from all teams, the Jaguars was deemed as the ugliest of all of them. the loud gold jersey with the half-gold helmet makes it a monstrosity to look at.

5. Green Bay Packers Throwback Jersey

GreenBayPackersThrowbacks

The rest of list is going to consist of throwback jerseys. Throwback jerseys are the worst because the designs is only fitting for that time when they were available. Green Bay’s uniform is one of them by having navy-blue jersey with tan colored pants.

4. Pittsburgh Steelers Throwback Jersey (2009-2016)

The “Bumblebee” jersey is an infamous jersey in NFL history. The black-and -yellow stripes  on the jersey is a big eye opener for everybody. Sadly, this uniform was discontinued in 2016.

3. Denver Broncos AFL Throwback Jersey (2009)

In 2009, we had the 50th anniversary of AFL, where we saw the retro uniforms from teams such as the Titans and the Patriots. Then was saw the Broncos’ retro jersey and this is the definition of ugly. The uniform looks like a rotten banana with stripes.

2. Philadelphia Eagles Throwback (2007)

All I want to know is who’s idea was to bring back this jersey. I remember when I was ten years old watching football. When I saw these uniforms, I was confused on who was this team. The Eagles color scheme is Green and grey but they decided to go back when the Eagle were bright yellow and baby blue. This is one of the ugliest uniforms I ever seen.

1. Chicago Bears NFL 75th Anniversary (1994)

Similar to the Broncos’ uniform, this jersey was brought back during 75th anniversary of NFL. Of all uniforms throughout the Bears’ long history, the organization chose these jerseys. Not only the stripes are louder than loud, but they have the number on the upper-right corner of the jersey. Also, you really can’ tell who they are.
