Sports games with historical patterns are relatively a new occurrence, assuming of course that you do not expect things like franchise modes and season blending, after all, you can not tell me to go through a nine sets of crises in early September In an MLB match is not catching the drama, although not necessarily so nice. The original NBA Ballers was one of the first to present a story and Midway developers are certainly taking advantage of their game with the upcoming game series, NBA Ballers: Phenom.
While Phenom’s story mode, with its RPG-Lite elements, seems to be a natural progression for the series, I’m very curious to see how the game has been involved by commissioner David Stern dropped the hammer on the dress code players Of the NBA. Gone are the days of Mr. T’s chains and NBA players spinning ice the size of small stones on their fingers. Instead they are business suits, silk ties, and possibly a V-neck sweater or two. NBA policy does not only apply to the real world, however, it is clear that the league is meant to protect its new image in the virtual world. As such Ballers, and next year the inevitable NBA Street followed by EA, will be forced to change with the times.
Although Midway producers have wanted to play their cards close to the vest during yesterday’s press tour for the game, they can not tell me for a second that the new NBA policy did not cause ballers havoc in the bling, . What’s more surprising is not that Ballers changes over time – that’s for sure, you still have your share of glow in the game – but the game was not met with delays while the ‘treatise development team to deal with the Whims of David Stern.
