Top NBA 2K 19 Secrets from Sletrry's blog


However, The Neighborhood can be sullied by corporate sponsors. A little gentrification in the old neighborhood? Maybe. Nevertheless, NBA 2K19 MT is not just a Foot Locker location sitting on a corner or Gatorade-sponsored gyms. The owners of the barbershop present DJ with a present, JBL headphones, of which DJ chimes in, "Are the newest JBLs?" Gatorade is a central piece of the story, called out by the broadcast team during games as far as it is advertised during gym training sessions (purchasing virtual bottles of Gatorade for endurance includes a spiel about electrolytes).

Selling a bit of advertisement space -- even overdone advertisement space -- is not inherently problematic. It is emblematic of an online-connected era. There is an authenticity in rotating courtside banners and between-play chatter from the announcers, changing as the year goes on with new sponsors cycling in. The insistence on using Virtual Currency (VC) for all of compounds the matter, though. NBA 2K19 wants you to drink Gatorade, but it's also considering getting you to invest more real money in the sport.

VC has exploded into an infestation over the years, and it's a potent lure. Buying special editions of NBA 2K19 grants bonus VC, an appealing proposition considering that player updates, new hairstyles, clothing and shoes require money. Spending VC on sneakers signifies less VC to upgrade DJ, and less opportunity to hold your own in pickup or Pro-Am modes against real-world competition.

The slog to earn money without spending real money is money; shoes run 1,500 VC and one player category upgrade asks for 1,200 VC, but you just earn about 600 VC from the typical game. The poking and prodding from VC-related pop-up provides when booting up a brand new 2K19 session irritates additional. The microtransactions could be ignored, at least, when in franchise mode, one of those few components of NBA 2K19 where VC isn't available.
