NBA Live 16 demo impressions
Last year with NBA Live 15, EA Sports was able to get the series back to a level of respectability. It still lagged far behind the competition in just about every aspect however and question remained on its viability in today's marketplace.
For NBA Live 16 the company is going all-in with two new online modes, both of which fall under Live Pro-Am, and continued improvement to gameplay. Will that be enough when the rest of the game is essentially unchanged?Ā (more…)...

The NBA Live 16 demo is out now
The demo for NBA Live 16 is now available to download on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. It's a unique oneĀ in that it includes an online component and the ability to create a character that will carry over to the full game should it be purchased.
FeaturedĀ are six teams to use in standard exhibition games (Bulls, Cavaliers, Clippers, Thunder, Warriors, Wizards) along with tutorial drills, shootaround, and scrimmage. But it's the Live Pro-Am that takes center stage.

NBA 2K16 Gameplay Videos
It's somewhat disconcertingĀ when any game holds back from showing gameplay footage leading up to release, but in the case of NBA 2K16 there wasn't much concern over what that meant. The series' track record and where it was coming from with 2K15 left little reason to doubt that 2K16 would be in excellent shape.Ā Still, it took until just 11 days remained for any footageĀ to go out, with today a huge wave of videos being let loose from a variety of sources.
It's noteworthy that these vide...

MyCareer Mode in NBA 2K16 is written and directed by Spike Lee, and the more adult-nature moved the game's rating to E10+ as it includes objectionable dialogue, references to suicide, and the death of characters. Today 2K Sports released a trailer for the popular story mode which now is being likened more to a movie than those from the past two editions of the series.
Lengthy NBA Live 16 gameplay videos from live stream
Following footage recorded off-screen at E3, NBA Live 16 went somewhat into hiding and since then has avoided the release of any gameplay footage, knowing that a great deal would ride on the demo anyway. However EA Sports gave out copies of the game at a party on Saturday night - many of which have since ended up on Ebay - and that means footage of the game would inevitably get out no matter whatever efforts EA would take to prevent that from happening.
Already there has been a live strea...
