Confession: I’ve Spent Real Money For #NBA2K15 VC (Virtual Currency)

Confession: I’ve Spent Real Money For NBA2K15 VC (Virtual Currency)

I thought I’d never be one of those shmoes that spends real $$$ for in-game currency/purchases. But now… I am. But here is my defense. I am not proud of it but literally, the MyTeam mode is impossible without doing so…

–The CPU difficulty is such that if your players aren’t top notch, you’re screwed.

–The NBA2K15 online community is based around “pack openings.” Similar to traditional baseball cards, they’ve implemented purchasable packs, which cost VC (Virtual currency). You can play the game regularly, but getting enough for a pack almost takes a week. Every time you play a game, you have to purchase ‘contracts’ for your players which eats away at your earnings. Your players get injured, so you either have to play without them, our go on the auction house and buy an Injury Heal card. Everything is geared towards buying more packs and often times that means spending real $$$ for in-game currency. It’s really lame and not consumer friendly and I have found myself caught up in it.

You think gambling is addicting, these pack openings are too. Then going on the auction house and ‘sniping’ players… that’s exciting, too. Setting up a new lineup and tackling ‘challenges’ are exciting. It’s an addicting game, and I’m clearly addicted. I just wanna admit I’ve spent a hefty sum and it’s lame of me, but this game is unplayable and unenjoyable otherwise. Oh, and every time I play online vs. a human opponent they have LeBron James. You think that’s an accident? No, they’ve probably used real $$$ to get in-game currency to get packs and ultimately, buy LeBron James on the auction house. There’s no point to this post other than to fill you guys in. Above and below are videos of pack openings. These guys are youtube famous because of it! Brothers are even dating white chicks with speech impediments off this fame, dogg!

Oh, another thing I think 2k does is when they release a new special edition/limited edition pack, the people who buy them first, they come out with a ton of special (Ruby -or other Gem players), and then people make youtube videos and hype them up. By the time you get home and want to buy some, they’ve nerfed the packs and you get swindled. This shit happens.

Okay, I gotta run and get back to some 2K! Oh, and if you think I’m some nerd, even NBA players themselves are obsessed:

SHOCK VIDEO: Some Americans Think Martin Luther King Just Died…

Mark Dice stays clowning people. I feel like if you live in a warm weather climate it makes you fit+dumb. Meaning you’re actually out and about, catching vitamin D, but you’re dumb as a rock. Us folks in the eastern seaboard with harsh winters–all we can do is stay at home and Google shit and learn a thing or two.

Artie Lange Podcast: Artie Finally Spills The Beans on Howard Stern! [AUDIO]

Artie Lange Podcast: Artie Finally Spills The Beans on Howard Stern! [AUDIO]

I guess his therapy is working. And he admitted Howard and him only have spoken a few times in 5 years. So that’s pretty much where that friendship stands… in oblivion. And of course he’s only going to say nice things about Howard. Nothing he really said was surprising or new to me on any level. Nevertheless it was a fun listen.

And when all of that racist Artie on Twitter stuff went down, how much do you want to bet Howard was so thankful he had already distanced himself from Artie w/ a million-foot-pole. Lol.

I admit this graphically looks amazing, but fighting games just don’t do it for me anymore. The charm of fighting games were when you played them standing up in the arcade! I’ll prolly still get it though eventually, as Mortal Kombat 3 Arcade is historically my fav. fighting game growing up!
