NBA 2K13

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. As always, the Play of the Day series is well worth checking out if you’d like to get the most out of playcalling in this year’s game, running plays like a pro and making use of real NBA strategy.

Check out the latest episode below or watch it here on YouTube if you can’t see the embedded video. If you’re new to playcalling and would like more help understanding play diagrams, be sure to check out this video from Czar’s Strategy Sessions series, which is also definitely worth checking out in its entirety. You can also read more of Czar’s thoughts and insights over on the Sim Citi blog.

January 24th Official Roster Update for NBA 2K13 Out Now

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.

NBA 2K13 Roster Update - Black History Month Shoes

2K Sports pushed through a new official roster update for NBA 2K13 yesterday, containing updated starters for the East and West All-Stars and Black History Month colourways for the Kobe 8, LeBron X and KD V shoes. It does not appear to include any ratings or injury status updates, only the updated All-Star teams and shoe assignments for Kobe Bryant, LeBron James and Kevin Durant.

As always, the updates will come through automatically as long as your PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 or Wii U is connected to the Internet. If you’re playing on PC and would like to manually update your game instead, you can pick up our manual update pack here.

NLSC Podcast – Episode #14

NLSC Podcast Logo

The fourteenth episode of the NLSC Podcast is now online for your listening enjoyment! Leftos, Ben and I are your hosts once again and despite it being a slow news week, we find a few things to talk about including the selections of the All-Star starters, what we’ve been watching recently and a few other odds and ends. If you’re after a quick synopsis:

  • In honour of the Manti Te’o saga, we welcome everyone and their fake girlfriends to this week’s show!
  • It’s been a slow news week, but we give a quick rundown of some stories of note.
  • Leftos has a message for Lance Armstrong.
  • The NBA All-Star starters have been announced. True to form, I momentarily forget who was voted in on the East.
  • We talk a little about fan voting, All-Star games in years gone by and the Rising Stars Challenge.
  • Which reserves do we think should be selected by the coaches for the All-Star game?
  • Some gaming rumours are briefly discussed.
  • Which TV shows have we all been enjoying (or at least watching) as of late?

This week’s episode is actually shorter than recent podcasts as we’ve been taking some feedback on board and are looking to put out a tighter show with a more compressed news segment and fewer “monologues”. We hope you enjoy the latest episode, if you have any constructive feedback about the format and current approach we’re taking, or any thoughts on what we discussed in this week’s show, please feel free to have your say in the comments below or here in the Forum.

NLSC Podcast – Episode #13

NLSC Podcast Logo

The lucky thirteenth episode of the NLSC Podcast is out now for your listening enjoyment. This week, Leftos and I are joined by Ben (aka Arcane), following reports of his resignation that were greatly exaggerated, as we catch up on the week in basketball video gaming news and the latest goings on in the real NBA. A synopsis of this week’s show is as follows:

  • Ben is welcomed back to the NLSC Team after never actually stepping down, so we spend some time getting to know him.
  • NBA 2K13’s All-Star Weekend content is now available as DLC for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 users. We offer a few thoughts on that.
  • We briefly recap a couple of news items from the past week, which include a new official roster for NBA 2K13 and the shutdown of online services for NBA Live 10 and NBA Jam.
  • The Sacramento Kings may be moving to Seattle to become the new Supersonics, tipping off our NBA discussion for the week.
  • The Lakers broke their six game losing streak and we ponder how far they can actually go this season.
  • Rookie of the Year talk prompts us to mention Damian Lillard and of course, Andre Drummond.
  • Dunks and the Dunk Contest are discussed. With no JaoSming around, I rail against throw-ins, at least in the Contest.
  • Leftos tells us about the joys of running from zombies.
  • I manage to remember all our social media addresses in closing the show, a marked improvement from last week.
