NBA 2K15 hits retailers Tuesday, but a hotly anticipated feature is still, well, a work in progress. Early adopters of the 15-year-old video game franchise have been riffing on its buggy face-scan option. The game’s idea is brilliant, but the macro notion hasn’t quite delivered on its promise to give you an uncanny in-game avatar in 30 seconds.
The game doesn’t take a photo, but promises to map your image using the console’s video component. Thus, the biggest buzz surrounding the game has been the #facescan campaign, wherein users post their hilarious, monstrous lab results.

On the plus side, these avatars would look great as the Monstars in Space Jam.
