Wow. My jaw is dropped. I don't know what to say after that.

Lots of new animations and looks like some better passing. Looks good I'm excited.

Looks like I'll finally be retiring 2K11.

CP3 has somewhat normal face... (the other dudes will say what they noticed, not that good at it )

I like that there are a lot more falls and spills to the court.

And Teague's reaction after getting up
 
# 6 KasparV @ 08/21/12 01:12 PM
I really liked how Teague got by Chandler, it was not overdone, he just was faster and Chandler was just too slow, better than in 2k11 imo where it sometimes felt a little too programmed whereas here the gameplay mechanics make it so that Teague can easily pass Chandler

After watching -insert competitior's name here- video, you're reminded it's a lot of the little things that make a huge difference in the whole experience.

Enjoy fellas.

It's the small things. I love the shoulder nudge, and holding the ball away. The dynamic collisions look impressive. Speed mattering looks so right. Just all the fine details... man. This is it WHAT...

This was mind blowingly good.

great vid and was that a new knicks uni?
 
# 13 Vni @ 08/21/12 01:15 PM
Looks brillant so far.

That push/protect the ball animation was really a great thing to add. Well done.

I wish it had been a little longer(that's what she said), it feels like as soon as it starts and you start to get in to it, it's over.

Everything just looks so smooth and natural. The contact animations, both during and after contact, add so much more realism to the game.

I think these guys really took the criticisms of 2K12 to heart and vowed to erase all of the shortcomings that game had.

Outstanding stuff.

Definitely a bit short, feels like it should have just been part of the first one but man oh man, does 2k know how to get me excited about playing a basketball video game!

I can't wait to hear more about what type of moves we can do with the right stick, both offensively and defensively. I'm still holding out hope that when we put our hands up we don't get forced out of position by a pumpfake like we did in 2k12. Or how about the ability to jump straight up to contest as opposed to jumping toward the player. I mean that would be as easy as hitting Y without moving the L stick vs Y and moving the L stick towards/away from the offensive player (think about jumping away to avoid contact on a drive).

Anyways, this video was definitely a tease but a tantalizing one.

Watch it 20 times, like me.

I love how you can protect the ball by palming it. Just wonder if there's some way of making the player's fingers spread out a bit. Only person I've ever seen palm a ball like that was Peter Parker.
 
# 19 illwill10 @ 08/21/12 01:18 PM
Will there be any written up stuff, to go along with this.

I enjoyed the whole vid. Cant wait to play

Stuff like this and the new difference in speed of bigger vs smaller players is going to make it real fun to try and exploit all the different mismatches you see during games.
