NBA 2K13

January 21st Official Roster Update for NBA 2K13; BHM 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

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

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.

We hope you enjoy the show and as always, we invite you to give us your thoughts and feedback in the comments below, as well as in this thread in the NLSC Hub section of the Forum.

January 12th Official Roster Update for NBA 2K13 Out Now

A new official roster update for NBA 2K13 featuring lineups updated through January 12th is now available for the PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U versions of the game. The new rosters will come through automatically as long as your computer or console is connected to the Internet, though PC users may also update their game manually using this pack, which contains the latest rosters and online data files.

The new roster contains a couple of ratings boosts for Kobe Bryant and Serge Ibaka, though the roster primarily updates injured status for players such as Dwight Howard, Pau Gasol, Jordan Hill and Kevin Love, as well as returning players including John Wall, Tyreke Evans and Marcus Camby. Avery Johnson has also been replaced by P.J. Carlisemo as coach of the Brooklyn Nets, while Jim Boylan appears on the sidelines for the Milwaukee Bucks in place of Scott Skiles. You can check out a video overview of the roster update here, courtesy of Operation Sports.

The Friday Five: 5 Improvements Needed for MyCAREER

Welcome to this week’s edition of The Friday Five! For the uninitiated, this is a new weekly feature appearing every Friday, discussing five items of interest in list/countdown format. Topics you can expect to see covered include issues related to basketball video games, goings on in the real NBA and other subjects of interest to our community.

This week, I’m counting down the five improvements that I believe are needed in NBA 2K’s MyCAREER mode. Although I’m traditionally more of a Dynasty and Association enthusiast, over the past couple of years I’ve been drawn in by My Player/MyCAREER and enjoyed it immensely. However, there are a couple of bothersome issues that detract from the experience, so these are the things that I’d most like to see addressed for MyCAREER in NBA 2K14 and beyond.

NBA 2K13 All-Star Weekend DLC Out Today

The All-Star Weekend DLC for NBA 2K13 that was originally only available to gamers who pre-ordered the game or purchased the Dynasty Edition pack is being made available to all Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 users today. The content is already available for 400 Microsoft Points in the Xbox Live Marketplace and will be available in the PlayStation Network Store by the end of the day at a cost of $4.99.

Although 2K Sports shied away from confirming it at the time, it had been speculated that the All-Star Weekend content would eventually be made available as DLC for all users from the moment it was announced. As previously noted, the content will not be made available for the PC version.

Will you be picking up the All-Star Weekend DLC? Let us know in the comments below and join in the discussion here in the Forum.

NBA 2K13 All-Star Weekend to be released as DLC

The All-Star Weekend add-on content for NBA 2K13 that was a pre-order bonus will be released as DLC tomorrow for $4.99 or 400 Microsoft Points. Available for the Xbox 360 via Xbox LIVE and PlayStation 3 via the PlayStation Network, it includes events such as the Dunk Contest and the 3-Point Shootout, which will also be playable in MyCAREER and Association.

We’re all really excited about this. At least I know I am.
