I'm optimistic that it'll be a good game in its own right. I'm still tempering my expectations, and I think the key will be not to make too many direct comparisons to Street and Jam.

I havn't played any games like this since NBA Street Vol 2.... But... for $20 on Steam, I will be buying it.

And I am sure we will be able to mod it. Could be fun.

The closed beta that's been going on for a while now got accidentally put up as a free download on the PlayStation store. I wasn't able to pick it up before it got fixed but a good amount of people did. It's pretty limited in what you can do. Basically a demo that has online play.

From all of the gameplay, It looks like shooting 3's is pretty difficult.

I think I'll double dip with PS4 and PC. PS4 will probably be what I play on the most and PC will be in case modding.

Gotcha, just hoping PC will have players on it, so i could dual stack etc. Way more fun to play it that way.

Really hoping there will be PC players. The price and style might intrigue more people, I hope I'm right

Definitely ps4. Will double dip with PC if there's modding, since the price point is low

Just got it on steam, it has one huge file + two opening movies(both open) + splash.bmp file (So you can pretty much change the intro, haven't tried yet)
Don't really have too much time to do anything, before work, so i'll be back in like 2-3 hours.
Image
Also you get 3 starter packs, not too bad for a start i guess lol.

I will get it in the morning. My only hope is that the PC has a fanbase and has no stupid kids trying to tinker with Cheat Engine to ruin any fun. I know there's offline modes, but that's really only half the fun..

Austin Creed plays the game for like 40 mins.
phpBB [video]

Watched the first game he played and LeBron's stl and blk ratings too low but he would be too good for the game
Also Kemp is on both cavs and sonics.
Game has a Jam feel for sure, but in an outdoor setting.
I like the packs, challenges, and collectibles, as it adds to the replayability factor.

Just got the first textures to open up
My exporter died in the middle of exporting, so i have no more players to show, but will see what i can find in the cluster of files it did export.

Have no clue about the importing back part, files are made with Unreal Engine 4 tho, which was already mentioned before.

Wow, this is sweet already.

I hope Rodman makes an appearance in this game later on, obviously his shooting won't be his strength.. but imagine the rebounds and dunks and blocks

The only way I've found is importing the assets into unreal engine and recreating a .pak from there. Not even sure if the pak would work when modified though.

Legend packs though...
