Cha-ching

Edit: LOL. Maybe not. Meh, I already have the quest anyway

Posted by yinstarrunner

So excited. I still have no IDEA what this game even is.

No NBA Ballers no buy

FREE* BASKETBALL!!!

[Edit] If you cant get a song past the fucking ESRB don't licence it. Anyone who censors Freddie Mercury deserves to be force fed that free $60 basketball.

holy crap they got wireless mics!

Who the fuck picked that thumbnail? Ryan drenched with sweat seemingly pre-activity, and Jeff has Ace Ventura hair.

how do they expect people to play this game? Did they do any research on what percentage of people have their Kinect set up in a place that would accommodate this?

The exploding bullshit has got to fucking stop.

Look at those crazy lights go with the beat. Wonder if that's some arduino setup going on there.

Vinny. You're the best. :D

Basketball Hero? Or maybe Basketball Central is more accurate.

Posted by DoctorSage

Ryan looks exhausted.

Also, this game has way more going on than I expected. If I had a compatible Kinect setup, I might give it a shot.

Whoever decided to take "the bullets rip" out of Another One Bites the Dust is a terrible human being.

"Oh, this is so stupid." There's your back of the box quote.

Posted by Levio

I like how, of the 3 Kinect games featured today, the one that tries the hardest to be a game is by far the worst.

Edited by csl316

Guitar Hero made me a better guitar player (seriously, I used a pick and got more accurate). Will this help my game??

And this looks kind of cool. Plus "I need to look at the ball when I dribble, so this is impossible" is now one of my favorite Jeff-isms.

And then they close out with the theme song to Farming Simulator 2011 . Compelling purple box quicklooks 10/10 .

Seems like the timing would be thrown off by taller people like Jeff. He had to hunch down to do it better which probably gets tiring.

And I'd be pissed if I lived downstairs from someone with this game.

The folly of this game is not including the Space Jam theme song.

Posted by davo

Developers are really trying to keep this genre alive.

HOW DID THAT NOT MAKE THE GAME!?!

Posted by TooWalrus

@Jeff Yeah, they totally spelled 'dribble' like 'drible.'

Posted by CJduke

"I need to look at the ball when I dribble, so this is impossible" hahahahah had me laughing so hard

Posted by ikusaba

Wow, this looks a lot more functional than I would have imagined. If I had any room at all to actually play this I may have considered it. Then again I like Basketball so that could be why it looks more appealing.

Posted by SgtSphynx

A kinect quick look without vinny in front of the camera is unfortunate, but his hijinks behind the camera almost make up for it.

Diggin' Jeff's new Heihachi look

They should've changed the lyric to "the wizards rip". NBA JOKES!

Finally my dreams have been brought to fruition :D

Posted by Nudelwudel

This is blocked on Youtube in Germany due to licensing bullshit. Awesome!

Posted by I_Stay_Puft

I bet if Jeff wanted to he could totally pull off the Wolverine look.

Edited by Godlyawesomeguy

Respect points for the awesome, awesome Interpol song.

EDIT: Points taken away for the dumb censorship.

Yeah... this game should've shipped with a shotgun to defend yourself from your downstairs neighbor.

Sports game quick looks are the best! Probably my favorite variety of quick look on the site.

Posted by Derangel

Gotta admit, this game looks cool. However like millions (?) of other people I can't play it. I have room for a Kinect, but I live in an upstairs apartment and well it's all carpet. If I had the correct set up I wouldn't play it because I'd feel the urge to hurt anyone that dribbled a basketball on any theoretical hardwood floor I owned.

Posted by Helios1337

Signing in.... NOT SIGNED IN! Ughhh, wtf Kinect.

Posted by mustachioeugene

who is the market for this game?

Edited by SgtSphynx
If I had a Kinect, I could perhaps play this in my garage, but that would require me to move my big ass TV to my garage and that ain't fucking happening. I will say that this looks like a decent game, but like Ryan said, not $60 worth.

People who own a living room that doubles as a hardwood basketball court and have no desire to play actual real life basketball on it.

Posted by Oginam

Much better looking and playing than I expected.

Edited by NTM

When Ryan said who will you be, I was thinking "Seattle Super Sonics", and then I thought... "Oh, wait. Damn." Also, wow, this game is absolutely terrible, just the idea of it, although I will say that the fact that the basketball is detectable is nice. I would never play this.
