What do we want from our NBA games? We want a heaping helping of mothereffin’ basketball in our faces, that’s what we want. The National Basketball Association, after all, don’t play soccer or cricket or some other BS like that.
So when a new trailer for NBA Live 15 strides lankily into view, some good ol’ fashioned b-ball is what we want to see. But nuts to that, says EA Sports. When you’re a renegade badass speeding into the gates of hell on grandma’s mobility scooter, you don’t need to be conventional. You can instead bring us… a ‘visuals trailer.’
We didn’t know that was a thing, but here it is. We’re seeing a little of the graphics engine and gameplay, but this is mainly just drama. It’s all supercuts, and extreme zooms, and checking out the players’ perfectly-coiffered facial hair/the detail on their tattoos which surely mean something highly significant in Chinese.
This, gentlemen, is the next-gen difference. Never have shit beards looked shittier or beardier.
