The NBA season has just ended and we’re in the middle of an World Cup, but I can’t stop thinking about what promise this new game holds for us. The “improvements” to this re-booted NBA Live franchise makes it seem like the gameplay will be more fluid than ever, promising 1:1 player response. Also, shooting the ball will be more skill-oriented, and less of a pre-programmed dice roll. To me, this sounds a lot like how EA Sports’ FIFA franchise handles itself. If that’s the case, our crew will be extremely busy this Fall/Winter taking our newly-mediocre Atlanta Hawks to the Finals.
