Aaron Holbert @aholbert32 35s #NBA2K14 talking graphics now. Details are crazy. Even the rim has scuffs. Looks like 2k took each arena and really upgrades them.
Aaron Holbert @aholbert32 3m#NBA2K14 Redid the scoreboards in each arena and the lighting in each arena. Def noticeable.
Ronnie 2K 2K14 @Ronnie2K 1m "LEDs in score clock and jumbotron act like how LED is supposed to. Measured in Kelvin and reflected against other surfaces."
Ronnie 2K 2K14 @Ronnie2K 1m
"Reproduce amount of lights in every arena"
Aaron Holbert @aholbert32 2m#NBA2K14 watching Lebron face map. Asking him to make intense faces. Can’t lie the game has his and Kobe’s face down.
Aaron Holbert @aholbert32 3m#NBA2K14 face mapped Kobe Bryant. KB helped with his player model. He loved the model.
Now showcasing LeBron getting head scanned. Showcasing the different faces players make. Screams, smiles, smug looks, focused faces etc...
Now showcasing Kobe Bryant getting head scanned. Kobe hung around while they built his model and his reaction was "GTFO here"
Aaron Holbert @aholbert32 51s #NBA2K14 KD’s and Iguodala face maps. Both look great. Even have Kd’s bad skin. 2nd look at curry. Not as bad as I thought originally.

Aaron Holbert @aholbert32 now #NBA2K14 new animation system. Guys will have real life wingspans. New KD shoes look great.
Ronnie 2K 2K14 @Ronnie2K 12s Animations: motion capture used to be 1 to 1 on game. Now animation synthesis creates a framework and animation changes...
Chris Manning 2K14 @LD2K 16s Mike speaks about animation synthesis, Eco Motion - based on physics and situation, animations will change.
Aaron Holbert @aholbert32 18s #NBA2K14 animation synthesis. Animation will change based on circumstances. If KD takes a shot and D is guarding him tight, anim will change
Chris Manning 2K14 @LD2K 3s The game feels alive. For example, a shooter won't land the same way two times. Animation will adapt to the situation. Truly incredible.
Aaron Holbert @aholbert32 13s Rob talks about points of emphasis. Every coach will have its own ai and strategize based on how the game is going. #NBA2K14
