NBA2K15’s face scanning has gone hilariously wrong

HEYYOOOGUYS

Sports games have featured face scanning tech in some way for nearly two generations. Since the advent of the webcam, game developers have sought to bring players actual likenesses into games. It makes sense for a sports fan; being able to play as you is appealing. You’d imagine though, with the new, higher fidelity cameras available, that it’d be a seamless, working process by now. You’d be wrong.

NBA2K15 is the latest game to feature facial scanning tech, allowing you to be in the game. Or at least, some sort of creepy, horribly disfigured version of you.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This the stuff of nightmares.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

          Indeed, I need a healthy dose of friends who wear makeup, have no soul, has upvote OCD in my day, else it was no proper day

          • Hammersteyn

            Seems we all have our thing, isn’t that reich?

          • Admiral Chief 0

            HAI

          • Captain JJ Underleyened

            Wouldn’t have it any other way.

        • CAE9872

          Yeah – what do they expect us to do? Work? Madness!

  • Hammersteyn

    HEY YOU GUYS! – Chump

  • ReaperOfSquirrels

    lol that’s classic

  • Hammersteyn

    did they try taking the disc out and wiping it with a cloth?

  • Koko

    the header makes me want to watch Return of the King again.

    • Hammersteyn

      Not Goonies?

      • Sageville

        He doesn’t know Goonies?

        @Koko -> Dogbox

        • Koko

          should i really be sent to my bed if I don’t know Goonies?

          • Sageville

            Yes, but only after the spanking and wrist slapping.

          • Koko

            promises promises…

      • Koko

        Paint him white and send him against Minas Tirith. A lot more exciting than Goonies.

  • Sageville

    Ag they just ripped these faces from Shadow of Mordor.

  • Sgt. M

    The site is back online. WHEW!!! Almost threw the screen at my colleague. How do you guys expect me to remain sane without LG?
    As for the article, I have never used the face scan.

    • Spaffy

      Screen not big enough?
      XD

    • Hammersteyn

      I dump all my insanity in the comments, that way I appear sane at work.

      • Sgt. M

        You don’t understand. The people I work with think gaming is a waste of time and money. I’m the youngest in the department by 12 years. It’s frustrating hearing about how I should be grateful I don’t have kids. Here there’s like minded individuals (don’t know what that says about my mind ) and I couldn’t access it. Shit nearly went down

        • Hammersteyn

          Here is like minded individuals that’s probably 12 years older than you as well. Age means nothing.

          • Sgt. M

            It’s not the age I agree. They treat smartphones like s plague

        • Sageville

          I find being 6’3″ and having a face like Tank Abbott restricts the amount of criticism I recieve when I discuss being a gamer…

  • Dutch Matrix

    Isn’t number 8 Darryn’s girl friend?

    • Spaffy

      That implies Darryn has a girl friend.

      • Dutch Matrix

        Have you seen his Batsuit? Hell, even Darryn should be able to pull SOME female attention in that thing. Just as long as he leaves the cowl on.

        • Admiral Chief 0

          AND TALKS LIKE THIS

          • Spaffy

            lokl

          • Dutch Matrix

            What? Like he smoked 700 cigarettes a day? Since the age of two?

          • Dutch Matrix

            But really now. My fiance took one look at him in his Batsuit and said: That is Michael Keaton’s Batman.

  • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)

    Clearly… Game of the YEar!!

  • mannam13

    Logic: Goat Simulator worked well. Let’s give that whole ‘broken game’ thing a bash!

  • HvR
