wow...wonder how it will look with the camera pulled back during gameplay....up close they look absolutely awesome.....lets hope there is more consistency and throughout all the players, not just some looking awesome and the rest looking pretty average

Hibachi!


Kind of ironic Gilbert is on the cover, since he trashed the live franchise and said he preferred the 2K series more. Money has a way of changing ones opinion I guess :p

In NBA Lives case, graphics are about the only thing it has going for it :p

And they go as soon as you zoom out, they did this for all their previous 360 games if you hadn't noticed.

Yeah yeah this game always looks superb and detailed but they always fail to deliver on gameplay compared to 2KSports titles.

I don't really like basketball at all, but characters design looks cool!

ah sure... this screens look incredible, but the final game will suck in gameplay and animations, like every ea sports game.
2k now is the best in this sector.
I'm waiting to have nba2k7 on ps3!!!

EA always has very nice graphics when they announce a game but later the game looks not even half that good.

Twice as many players, waaaaaaay more animations and a far larger play area/stadium means that won't happen.

Plus Konami put gameplay ahead of presentation and graphical splendor anyways.

What I find interesting is that texture resolutions are getting high enough to where you can see flaws in the way the images were captured and generated. Just look at the posterization all over the first guy's skin.

About the game


What's up?
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane I am sorry nostalgia or not, those shenmues characters look like shot... This is truly embarrassing (5 minutes ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus locations, and not really a game in development. So much time hiding a game, and this is wath the well known perfections Yu Suzuki shows with a straith face? Fucking kikckstarter strikes again! (1 Hour ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus game, and it just had some dead eyes faces plasted to the mocaped bodies, it was trully bad. And the deserted city streets. This seems like a talented modder modeling of a "2000's type" of shenmue (1 Hour ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @AndreasZ94: too low? this is the 2007 where a fraction of AAA games had a facial mo-cap rig. The main characters are the low bar of what we expect of decent facial expressions and lip-sync in this (1 Hour ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus dreamcast faces are like 2 or 3 generations ahead. (2 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @AndreasZ94: it looks like they took a dreamcast game, made all the assets look pretty. And that's it...i'm ok with this. Lol. (6 Hours ago)
  • AndreasZ94
    AndreasZ94 Im not expecting top of the line stuff because the budget is very low by AAA standards but they need to do better when it comes to facial expressions (7 Hours ago)
