NBA Live Demo is available now for PS4 and XBone

I have written off NBA Live for years but decided to try the latest demo since it is free and 2K isn't out until Friday. It appears to me that Live is catching up but is still far behind. The controls are very similar to 2K and the animations are good but they still seem sticky to me. For instance, when I sprint up the court with John Wall he always dribbles behind his back even when a defender is no where near him and he slows down as a result.

I only logged two 20 minute games on the demo but I got a good enough feel that I am going to be staying the course as a 2K fan. As the the Live demo stands now it is pretty and a decent basketball sim but inferior to 2k15. Unless 2K16 takes a big step backward there is no reason to go Live this year.

Just my two cents as basketball season nears - WOOT!

EDIT - Played on PS4

A thought on 9/11.

We were presented with a coloring book page of the events of 9/11. The outline was there but the image wasn't shaded in. There were no colors, just an outline. Many of us colored in that image, we chose greys and reds and shades of purple. Some of us were taken by the image so strongly that we painstakingly took our time, using what we thought were the best colors and shades that fit. Frame by frame, cell by cell until we had a full color representation.

Some colored with bias and others with objectivity. I am among those people.

Unfortunately, others skipped the page entirely, or found it ripped out by a controlling force. They were told it would help them sleep better at night and in that, they were told correctly.

A Citizens United Conundrum.

In order to get rid of money in politics you must gather as much cash as you can to win.

In order to get nicotine out of your system you must smoke as many cigarettes as you can.

Someone help me out here.

Grandpaw for Sanders!

I awoke to find my Grandpaw gearing up for some canvasing.

I thought we could all use some levity and more cat photos.

MGS 5 - The Phantom Pain.

Imminent release. 12AM EST. Gamespot will be selling at the equivalent in your timezone. I will be picking it up at 9PM out west.

I look forward to sharing thoughts on this one.
