First 2K13 Developer Insight this Friday (Aug 10)?

Postby Leftos on Wed Aug 08, 2012 5:51 am

@LD2k: Aw, yeah! RT @Ronnie2K: HUGE next 3 weeks ahead. About to blow all #NBA2K13 fans minds like never before. #turnonhypemachine #yeahIsaidit

OH MY GOD I'M SO EXCITED!

Discuss.

On a more serious note, first developer insight for NBA 2K12 was August 12th, second Friday of August. So if 2K goes by last year's marketing plan, this Friday we're getting the first developer insight.

Seems we're getting video insights this year, rather than write-ups.

Sounds good to me, we'll get to see what they're talking about in action.

I did like the weekly updates last year, for hardcore players it's a lot more informative than just revealing the key features, usually they go in depth about areas of focus and the subtle improvements. Videos could be even better.

That said what's with the overhype of anything related to 2k13 thus far. First the Biggest Announcement Eva and now some minor updates about the game are going to BLOW OUR MINDS? I understand the purpose of getting us excited and eager for their product. But seriously, I'm not a child, putting an exclamation mark at the end of every sentence doesn't get me hard.

another tweet mentioned showing the differences between 2k12 and 2k13......I really really hate those comparisons. They make last year's game look like complete crap yet 12 months ago they were so proud of it....

SPOILER ALERT :

They will make graphics look real-life-like, taking footage out of real life games.

Also, you will have to scan your body while creating My Player, so it will read your "stats" and detect your body type with height, weight etc. Reason for this is, as they said, that too many players chose ripped muscles. Your player won't be able to run fast if you are too fat and you won't be ready for the game if you are sick.

You will be able to break the rim with Shaq and he will also appear as a commentator in some games.

Well.. Last time they said that something will blow all NBA2K13 fans minds, they said Jay-Z will be game producer. Well, in that case I`m not really excited about next 3 weeks. But let`s hope I`m wrong. :)

Since they're making it Kinect compatable, I can see a lot of good ideas that they could do, to "Blow us away".

Okay having Shaq as a commentator would be awesome. No Joke.

Finally!!! Was waiting for these for a long long time... Hopefully they'll add more to the gameplay, not just Kinnect bs... I was really excited when these insights came last year, only to be a little dissapointed with the final product, so I'm not so optimistic this year. Please, prove me wrong 2k!

Well in some areas they deserve to be proud of it, though in other areas it IS quite crap...compared to 2k11, even.

You know what would be a mind-blowing announcement for me as a fan, though (aside from them bringing back all the 2k11 tweaks that they messed up last year and Dat Blacktop Mode)?
Adjustable body types. I mean wingspan, hands size, shoulders width, hips, legs, neck length, the works.
If they're after the 'most realistic/hard core basketball fan's video game' title, it's high time they incorporate these factors which are quite significant factors in real life ball. It's one of the last elements of basketball that they haven't touched/simulated.
Buuut I don't see anything that awesome happening. Probably not even close to that level.

On the plus side, it means their time was well spent and they've lifted their game when they're able to do that.

well, I felt EA's mistake with the 09 vs 10 videos was the wording iirc, they werent saying it was bad in comparison, just that it was bad.

It's been a while since I watched those videos but that does sound vaguely familiar.
