Yes because Live revealed a mode that 2k has had for years and has already release info about.

I'm just not moved by the visuals right now. The body types look improved definitely; Wiggins looks real good. But, the more of these low res clips that are released, the more it looks like the visual enhancements may have been limited to just that. That K-A Towns looks like a CAP...maybe its early footage and he is.

Looks like the new Stance socks are in this build.

On Wiggins, also it is looking like people's suspicions could been confirmed. Seems like leg sizes look pretty uniform... Maybe scans were not full body.

Edit: Or maybe not...looks like there are different leg sizes. Perhaps not a scan though.

Dude do not start this ****. The last Beyond Shadows thread got screwed up because of all this garbage. Go to the Other Basketball Games forum if you want to talk about this stuff. Don't start bringing that Live vs 2K garbage in this thread though.

Waiting on 23 for that ZERO tolerance mode...I expect a bunch of pinkies by the end of the week

C'mon Steve edit out the movie stuff and just get us the tiny bit of gameplay bits

I'll take the under on that sir. I will take by the end of the day.

Also, IMO, that lighting looked good.

Since no one else is gonna do it, time to analyze (btw I was wondering when Harden and AD's vids would drop-AD's will probably be next year lol).

DEANDRE JORDAN WAS SCANNED THANK THE HEAVENS!!!

Also, a lot of these clips are from an older build (Clippers old uniforms/Karl Anthony Towns and Sam Dekker scan not in the game)

Wiggins has his afro now, and Rubio has been updated.

Edit:By GAWHD! BY GAWD! IS THAT CAMERAMEN! (JR Voice)

Knew as soon as Live dropped a trailer, 2k would respond. But this feels more like Wanna Know after Back to Back. I'll wait for the good stuff to come out.

Also, I recommend checking it out in 1080p on YT.
 
# 12 swiftkid @ 08/13/15 11:24 AM
We're seeing no off court footage, only real life. These shorts are cool and all, but what does it all mean and when do we get to see footage of it....?

We also don't need to rehash this topic again. Especially since we've seen the same amount of "gameplay footage" from 2K as we've seen from the game you were about to derail the topic over. Amazing how that works.

Its classic 2k marketing been that way for years, and if it's not broken don't fix it when you sell 5 million copies of a basketball game last year. 2K will let Live have its moments to shine (and they and their fans deserve to), but they are just waiting for moment to pounce with a trailer that will make our jaws drop.
 
# 15 Mauer4MVP @ 08/13/15 11:25 AM
They just had to put that Rubio clip in there didn't they...
 
# 16 Vni @ 08/13/15 11:25 AM
Game seems to look about exactly the same as 2K15.
 
# 17 jbthegreat @ 08/13/15 11:25 AM
2k's marketing team sucks. Sorry not sorry

We didn't get gameplay footage from 2k this early last year, not until (I believe) the Yakkem Trailer on August 25.

Actual gameplay did not come until a couple of weeks before release.

Expect the same kind of schedule this year.

So they definitely have College teams in..... This is dope though btw.

Don't care what Live brings, as someone also in marketing, they NEED to do what they are doing. Think of it as a boxing match, they throwing what they have EARLY.. its not how you start, its how you finish.

2K will come out with all its might at the end, usually their marketing for th game ramps up late August, early September. Expect a trailer late August. Happens EVERY YEAR.

Its too early to complain about eyelashes not being close to scale, or how come Steph Curry nose doesn't have boogers in it, lets wait for more info to come out and enjoy what is released.

You expected different? lol

Slightly altered lighting and body scans for some guys, outside of that nothing much can/ should be done.
