E3: NBA Baller Beats trailer shows first gameplay


11:45 AM on 06.05.2012



When Majesco announced NBA Baller Beats, I think some people suspected that it was some kind of dumb joke. Maybe that was just me. But, as evidenced by the above trailer released during E3 2012, it is a very real game where you bounce a basketball to the beat of music.

An interesting element of this ad is that it features an inverted color scheme. Every other trailer of this nature would put one person of African descent and surround them with whiteys. And, of course, it's the pale-skin who screws up while playing. Typical prejudice. The white man is so poorly represented in videogames, it makes me sick.

We're sending Jonathan Holmes to check out NBA Baller Beats on the show floor a little later in the week. Brace yourselves for that.

NBA Baller Beats a grim portent for home furnishings

Majesco is making an NBA licensed game for Kinect called NBA Baller Beats which uses a real ball. Above is a teaser narrated by rapper Common which promises a gameplay demonstration this June at E3.  I have just one question: Did nobody at Majesco have a mother to tell them not to bounce a ball in the house?more

Gunsport's idea of a dystopian future is cyberpunk volleyball

In the future, two teams of two people will face one another in small arenas. Guns at the ready, they will prepare their trigger fingers, take aim, and fire... at a volleyball. At least, that is what Gunsport predicts the fu...more

The woes of NBA2K15

If you're a non-sports game fan, then your only association with NBA2K is probably the image above of my boy Jeffrey. Poor Jeffrey, he's literally become the face of an entire franchise. It doesn't have to be this way. And it...more
