NBA 2K13

NLSC Podcast – Episode #18

NLSC Podcast Logo

After our failures predicting All-Star Weekend 2013, we try our luck with trade deadline predictions, catch up on some NBA 2K13 news and chat about all sorts of balls. Want to know what else we talk about in Episode #18 of the NLSC Podcast featuring Leftos, Ben and myself? Here’s an overview:

  • One of us has sustained an injury, but it’s not an ACL tear. What a faux pas!
  • A little bit of movie talk leads us to research the flicks with the most profanity and dish out a little innuendo.
  • We move on to basketball video game news, which has been slow. Still no news on the PC patch for NBA 2K13; we’re not jumping for joy.
  • NBA 2K13 and MLB 2K13 will be available together as a combo pack. I talk about it with all the enthusiasm I can muster.
  • As the discussion turns to All-Star Weekend 2013, we reflect on our not-so-wonderful predictions.
  • We offer our reactions to the Weekend and read out some comments from the community.
  • The latest trade rumours are discussed as the trade deadline looms. More bold predictions are made, ready to be laughed at next week.
  • We close with some chatter on Sony’s big announcement.

We’re still working on the surprise we mentioned in last week’s podcast, so stay tuned for that in the coming weeks. As always, we’re eager to hear your feedback on this week’s show and everything we discussed in the comments below, as well as in this thread in the Forum.

NLSC Podcast – Episode #16

NLSC Podcast Logo

Leftos, Ben and I are back this week with the sixteenth episode of the NLSC Podcast, where as always we discuss a couple of our favourite subjects: basketball, and basketball video games. There hasn’t been much in the way of news regarding basketball video games this week, so once again we indulge in a little speculation and “Wishlisting”, along with giving our thoughts on the most recent happenings in the NBA. Want a quick overview of this week’s episode? Here it is:

  • There isn’t a lot of noteworthy basketball video game news this week, but our modding community has continued to do excellent work, so once again we feel compelled to give some well earned recognition.
  • We offer our thoughts on the Rudy Gay trade and whether or not he’s a franchise player.
  • As Leftos is a Pistons fan, we make a point of noting that the last player from the 2004 championship team is now gone.
  • Talk about dependable franchise players leads to a conversation about players with attitude problems and whether or not longer stints in college would make a difference, as we touch on the subject of the NBA’s age restriction.
  • We discuss other recent NBA news and rumours including the announcement of the Rising Stars rosters, Brook Lopez being named a replacement for Rajon Rondo in the All-Star Game, rumoured trades and the return of Andrew Bogut.
  • As the conversation turns back to basketball video games, we talk about the things we want to see improved in Dynasty, Association and MyCAREER mode, and read out some of the community’s thoughts on the matter.
  • What else do we think is important for the future of basketball video games, especially as we approach the next generation of consoles?
