NBA Live 14 News Post


EA Sports has posted an NBA Live 14 blog detailing BounceTek, their dribbling mechanic. The videos show that they have eliminated some of the flaws seen in the dribbling animations that were seen in NBA Live 10. They are looking to squash all of the canned animations and bring you more responsiveness.

Quote:
  • The dev team recaptured all of our dribble animations in order to give players the responsiveness they were looking for.
  • Our technology allows us to ensure that movement is as fluid as it should be in order to deliver authentic gameplay.
  • Our dribbling has something called "Authentic Responsiveness," which means the ball is controllable when it touches the player’s hands, ensuring that control is responsive when it should be and unresponsive when it should be. While that sounds counterintuitive, it's important to create the depth required in a top-notch dribbling system.
  • Depth is created through decision-making and risk-reward options that forces users to think about what they want to do with the ball in their hands.

NBA Live 14 will only release for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 consoles, later this year.

They seem to only be focusing on bounceTek. I like the idea of it but I hope they start focusing on other areas of the game.

They are only focusing on BounceTek for this specific blog. Other details will be released in due time.

I liked how the videos detailed flaws from NBA Live 10 and showed how they will be corrected in NBA Live 14.

One of the core fundamentals of Basketball is dribbling.

I thought the blog was informative. I would have liked to have seen a player loosing his dribble to further demonstrate that indeed the ball and the player are separate.

I also liked that they showed past issues and how they seem to be addressed, then again, I think that the blog could (and should) have been much more informative.

I mean, they should have definitively showed us a player loosing his dribble to further demonstrate that indeed the ball and the player are separate, as you stated ... they should have also showed us players dribbling trough traffic and how the ball reacts in those situations or how it interacts with other players contact or how the ball responds to contact with the rim.

In sum, IMHO, we should have been showed more of the main feature we have heard/seen the most, yet, weirdly, not enough ... I have liked what I have been reading so far but, for further blog entries, I expect no holdbacks.

EA owe us to show much more if they expect me (us) to materialize my open mind and kind of current afinity into a buy ... and this blog didnt met my expectations, let alone, raise the "hype" (yet cautious) that I was building up.

If NBA Live focuses on getting gameplay right, they have a fighting chance.

As much as I love the 2K series, there are some chinks in the armor once you get past the beautiful graphics and animations.

I was expecting more. I guess it's cool but why can't they show us digital Kyrie dribbling the ball?

2K let's u wiggle the stick to easily get past defenders smh if the ball is independent of the players it should take timing to pull off dribble moves which is something 2k suffers

based on what...lol...on what they just showed..how can you judge off a tek demo?
 
# 16 juicey79 @ 07/18/13 05:26 PM
I can't believe they showed us about 26 secs of NBA Live 10 dribble animation and then about 13 secs of a WIP dribble animation. I'm about to read the blog hopefully there is more detail in the blog than what was visually presented.

So nobody mentioned the Lebron siloette.

I hope this game is good, I would love to have 2 good basketball games to choose from.

Cool although I was hoping NOT to see a bunch of tech demos...

Anyway, the problem I have with the demos is the dude's hand dribbling the ball doesn't seem naturally connecting with and controlling the ball. Maybe it's just me. Seems like that old school Live paddle like effect dribbling.
There needs to be more carry in the dribble, as well, because most NBAers carry like a muuuggg but usually get a way with it.
