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?

NLSC Podcast – Episode #15

NLSC Podcast Logo

It’s that time of the week again: a new NLSC Podcast is coming your way, hosted by Leftos, Ben and myself. As always, we talk about the latest basketball video game and NBA news, before moving on to some other areas of interest and even getting a little nostalgic. If you’re looking for a quick overview of this week’s episode, here you go:

  • We open with some chatter that includes the weather and in the process, get a great idea for a new theme park…patent pending.
  • The conversation turns a little dark, so we move on to a recap of the week in news.
  • NBA 2K13 and NBA Jam: On Fire Edition received roster updates last week, the latter prompting a little more discussion than the former.
  • A couple of potentially interesting notes about NBA Live are touched upon very briefly.
  • The Hornets will officially become the Pelicans effective as of next season and we know what their logo will look like. Has it changed our minds about the new name?
  • The reserves for the 2013 All-Star game have been announced. We react and talk about a couple of noteworthy snubs.
  • Leftos has no interest in discussing the Bulls/Pistons game, but I do get to express some enthusiasm for Jimmy Butler’s recent play.
  • Changing things up, we talk about some of our favourite web series, including the returning Nostalgia Critic.
  • Mention of the Critic leads us to reminisce about a few things we’re nostalgic for.

A fair warning, at times the language in this week’s podcast is coarser than usual and not what you’ll see in news posts and feature articles here on the NLSC. It’s something we can tone down (or simply bleep) if it becomes a problem for you, our listeners, so let us know your feelings on that as well as your thoughts on this week’s topics and the show overall, either in the comments below or here in the Forum.

NBA 2K13 PC Shadows

Da_Czar has released the next video in his NBA 2K13 Play of the Day series, which is part two of his look at the Horns 1 “super set” play.

Showing off the SSAO effects, by Like A Boss.

A new official roster update for NBA 2K13 has come through today, with lineups updated through January 24th, 2013. It doesn’t include any ratings updates but does notably remove the Acrobat signature skill for all players who had it previously. It also updates the injury status for various players who are either out of action or returning to action, such as Lou Williams and Manu Ginobili, and includes the recent Cavaliers/Grizzlies trade. You can check out a detailed analysis of the latest roster here.

As always, the new roster will be pushed through automatically as long as your PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 or Wii U is connected to the Internet. I’ve also added the latest roster and online data files for the PC version to our manual update pack, for users who would prefer to update their game manually.
