You know a game looks good when you’ve said “holy shit that looks amazing” before anything happens.
That was me watching this new NBA 2K14 trailer, rocking out to the smooth sounds of Phil Collins as LeBron James blocks shots, LeBron James taunts opposing players and LeBron James dunks. Also, James Harden sweats a lot and Kobe Bryant annoys the rest of his team. It’s exactly like the real NBA, and I can’t wait to play it.
Check it out (and make sure you watch it in 1080p for ultimate sweaty realism):
I hope there’s a bonus mini-game set to ‘Sussudio’ where Steve Nash murders everybody with a hatchet.
This year has been a great swan song for current-gen systems with games like Grand Theft Auto V, Bioshock Infinite, The Last Of Us, a new Batman game and more, but it’s nice to see a clip from the next generation that looks like it belongs in the next generation, and not just a flashy explodey thing from a cut scene. The Anthony Davis animations alone are mind-blowing. GO PELS.
