New NBA 2K12 trailer

New NBA 2K12 trailer

NBA 2K12 is getting a brand new trailer today. Last year's edition was pretty impressive and many thought it would be hard to do much better. According to those who saw the game at GC, it could very well be the case.

I don't even care about basket ball, but damn, that's impressive. Best animation ever. It's got Gran Turismo moments were you think it's real for a second...

I'm not a hardcore basketball fan either but I do buy this game every year and have no regrets !

But I have to be honest and say I was not sure whether to get it this year too but this trailer sure left a very good impression.

I love the effort they put into improving every year. Other sports franchises still don't get it "cough" Madden.

Not a fan of basketball but that is one awesome trailer! The graphics and animation are second to none in the sports genre. These guys should make a Football game, it would be immense!

I'd go as far as to say it's got the best animation and transitions of ANY game in ANY genre- just stunning. Can you imagine a 3rd person shooter with that much attention paid to movement? Granted it's all on a flat surface, but they could just put in modifiers...

Sports games always look good tho. Like that MLB the show. Couldnt be any less interested by it, but man it looks and animates nice. The soft cloth physics helps a lot.

Yeah, that game is stunning. I'd like to see some of those graphic features used that well in other genres...

Aye. One of the first games i saw that was "next gen" was a basketball game, and even back then, as a launch title, it had soft cloth physics and i just assumed every game would have that tech. But aside from some long coats in some shooters, you dont see it outside of sports games. Maybe next gen?

Agreed, i cant for the life of me detect where the animation transitions start and stop. Everything just looks incredibly fluid and life like!

If you look hard enough you can. Especially in the slo-mo sections of the video. They are damn impressive tho.

Those vintage color filters they've used in the historic games are a nice touch too. I'm hoping that's not just an effect used for the trailer, but can actually be used in the game itself for those magic johnson, jordan matchups.

    asdfg @Moonwalker: well you asked if it would work to plug the headphones into a tv. I said that it would work. :P (2 Hours ago)
  • nostradamus
    nostradamus @droezelke: seems a tad short, but not much would be expected. If it supports powerbanks, then its on. (3 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke First test done with the Switch using Zelda. They could play for 2h 28 minutes on full battery. (13 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker constantly too. Man if only that pro controller had a 3.5mm output. Do they finally have that for Switch pro conrrller? (14 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker It should be a nomal 3.5mm output on my TV yeah. But what b0vril says could be true, sound may not be as clean. So i'll probably go with the hassle. Will be needing to keep the gamepad in the charger (14 Hours ago)
  • Ian_Nottingham
    Ian_Nottingham I've been looking for a great movie that's engaging from start to finish.Don't know which one you folks listed to start with though. (14 Hours ago)
  • asdfg
    asdfg @Moonwalker: Isn't it just a regualr 3,5mm output? Those extension cables are very affordable. If you have usb or optical output then it's another matter. (14 Hours ago)
