New NBA 2K17 Trailer Celebrates The Raw Emotion Of The Game

We always talk about modes and gameplay details when it comes to new sports games, but today's NBA 2K17 trailer dives into something a little more nuanced – how to convey the emotion of the sport.

The trailer highlights a lot of the ways the game is trying to ratchet up the drama on the court. The crowd reaction to a last-second buzzer beater and the players' dejection after a loss. The emotional flourishes of players as they celebrate a good shot and let everyone know who's on top.

NBA 2K17 comes out September 20, and if this trailer doesn't get you excited for it, you might want to consult your physician.

New Dragon Quest Builders Trailer Lays Out Its Constructive Premise

Dragon Quest Builders is a spinoff of the popular RPG series that lets players build and customize their own town while experiencing light action-RPG elements. It's been described as Minecraft, but with Dragon Quest, and for good reason – it's like Minecraft, but with Dragon Quest. If you need more to go on, however, Square Enix has released a new trailer that breaks down the game's various elements.

Players take on the role of the builder, a legendary figure with the ability to shape the world. The evil Dragonlord has made a mess of things, and you have to help the survivors rebuild and eventually take on the forces of evil. Also, it is completely adorable.

Expanding The Commentary Team

Presentation is a big part of sports games, and the NBA 2K series has historically had one of the best overall packages. Commentary is a huge part of that, and today's NBA 2K17 trailer not only goes behind the scenes with the principles, but also gives you a flavor of what's in store.

New for this year is an expanded booth. Ex-players Chris Webber, Steve Smith, and Brent Barry, and former sideline reporter and analyst Doris Burke join Kevin Harlan and Greg Anthony at times to give even more flavor and diversity to the game's commentary. Check out some of the new content – including an amusing clip from the studio show – in the trailer.

There are no big surprises in this new Japanese trailer for Pokémon Sun & Moon, but it does serve as a good summary of what we know for the upcoming game.

There is some speculation, however, that a tanned, "Alola form" Professor Oak appears at the 1:31 mark of the trailer. I have my doubts, but I wouldn't be surprised either way.

For more on Sun & Moon, here are all the revealed new creatures, and here are some big changes coming to the latest entry.
