Like a Good Neighbour, Jake from State Farm Is in NBA 2K22

Deseret News 11 September, 2021 - 02:11pm

Like a good neighbour, State Farm is there – including in NBA 2K22. The American insurance firm is a huge advertiser during primetime sports events in the United States, including the NFL and NBA, so it’s perhaps no surprise to see 2K Sports sign a partnership with the organisation and inject some ads within the game.

A quest in the PlayStation 5 version of MyCareer sees you head to a mall to meet up with Jake, where he’ll welcome you to the neighbourhood and issue you with a State Farm shirt and a bunch of MVP Points. You can then head inside the State Farm shop to buy more branded goods, like this ridiculous tee with Jake emblazoned on it:

The clothes cost 15,000 VC, which roughly works out at £3.99/$4.99 in real money. The game is actually jam-packed with advertising this year – more than ever before – with daily quests requiring you to reach milestones in Adidas and Nike clothing, for example. There are also billboards for AT&T 5G everywhere – even your in-game phone is powered by the network.

@Th3solution I was just going to say the same thing. No reason this game should cost so much every year with all the advertising in the game.

Might as well make these sports titles a GaaS and do large game updates at every new season.

Oh wait..then the publisher can't milk money from people every season with nothing more than a large update to the previous game.

I liked the original “Jake from State Farm” better

@WolfyTn the original guy did one ad for a 10 second clip and all he did was just sit there. You must really hate this new guy to want that Oscar-worthy work that 1st Jake did.

Yea this is normal. ADS IN A $60 GAME

Screw this stuff. I hate what sports games have become now.

Free to play xeperience for 80 bucks right there.

I think this game is horrible, like most sports game Ill only play franchise. However my complaint is the camera its horrible and Ive tried them all. Glad my son purchased it and not myself. LOL jokes on me still my money

This site's coverage of this game is telling: It's an RPG game now; no meaningful improvements to what used to be this game's purpose, i.e., the on-court basketball experience ...

NBA 2K22: MyCAREER decision: Go to College, G-League, or NBA?

ClutchPoints 11 September, 2021 - 04:05am

NBA 2K22 MyCAREER mode is a completely upgraded experience this year thanks to new features introduced on PS5 and Xbox Series X. When starting out, you’re going to be googling, “NBA 2K22: Should I go to college, G-League, or go straight up declare for the NBA Draft?” We’re going to help you make your decision here, letting you know what’s going to give you the best experience.

Going to College may delay your NBA signing, but it’s the best route towards your NBA career. First off, going to College will make sure you have a sizable social media following before you enter NBA, which means you’ll get better endorsements right off the bat. Going to College will also let you play a couple of matches before going to the NBA, which means you’ll have the opportunity to improve your attributes and grab a couple of badges. This may also lead to an opportunity to join the NBA G-League, where you can gain even more bonuses for your MyPLAYER.

Going G-League will give you a permanent 5% MyPoints accelerator. This applies whether or not you went to College. While in the G-League, you’ll have the opportunity to sign endorsements, building up your brand even before entering the NBA. There really isn’t any reason to skip College and go straight to G-League, unless if you really don’t have the time to burn.

Declaring for the NBA Draft will get you to the NBA the fastest way possible. However, you might have a hard time if you didn’t pre-order the game, as you’d be lacking in VC to upgrade your stats. This will make you very weak compared to other NBA players, and you’ll spend most of your time on the bench. So, just go declare for the NBA Draft if and only if you have enough VC to upgrade, or if you’re willing to spend extra cash to purchase VC as microtransactions.

NBA 2K22 is out now since September 10, 2021, on PC, Nintendo Switch, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X. Read our NBA 2K22 PS5 Review here.
