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

NBA 2K13 - Dwight Howard

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 Avery Johnson has also been replaced by P.J. Carlisemo as coach of the Brooklyn Nets, while Jim Boylan appears on the sidelines for the Milwaukee Bucks in place of Scott Skiles.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

Although lacking in a few areas, MyCAREER is still a deep and fun mode in NBA 2K13 PC.

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

NBA 2K13 - Kevin Durant

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

NBA 2K13 - Derrick Rose

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.

NLSC Podcast – Episode #12

NLSC Podcast Logo

The NLSC Podcast is back with episode number twelve! Leftos and I are your hosts once again and after a brief catch-up following the holiday season, we get down to discussing the latest news and rumours surrounding NBA Live and NBA 2K, some community news and notes and the latest goings on in the real NBA. A quick overview of Episode #12 is as follows:

  • We’re back! We both had a nice holiday break, we hope you did too.
  • Arcane has stepped down from the NLSC Team and his post as a moderator on the official forums; we thank him for his contributions and wish him well.
  • Leftos provides an update on his latest tools for NBA 2K13 and the Stats Tracker for NBA 2K12.
  • NBA 2K13 received two new rosters last week, opinion is still generally lukewarm at best.
  • EA Sports are ending online support for NBA Live 10 and the 2010 reboot of NBA Jam. We ponder whether it means anything for NBA Live 14 and once again speculate a little on the next game.
  • We move on to this week’s feature discussion, the Royce White saga in Houston.
  • A few other NBA related topics are discussed.
  • I close the show by forgetting our Twitter handle. (Hey, it’s not like I maintain it or anything…)

Click the Play button below to listen to this week’s episode!

We’re glad to be back and looking forward to continuing to bring you a new episode each week throughout 2013. We hope you enjoy the latest episode, please feel free to add your comments below or in this thread in the Forum. You can also continue to discuss the situation with Royce White here in our NBA & Basketball Talk section.

NCAA 2K13 v1.0 Released for NBA 2K13 PC

NCAA 2K13 Mod for NBA 2K13 PC

Only a couple months after the initial release, version 1.0 of the NCAA 2K13 total conversion mod for NBA 2K13 PC has been released! The mod still has the same 30 NCAA teams as before, but this version has all the courts previously released in quiet updates, basic appearances for all players by basketball110 and ratings & tendencies done by johnbuckeyefan.

This will probably be the final update from myself with the NCAA/College Hoops mod for NBA 2K13. With the REDitor releasing soon, Behindshadows will take over leadership and development of the mod while he and the rest of the College Hoops 2K11/2K12 crew use this mod as a base for a more accurate representation of the NCAA. Be sure to keep an eye out for that.

For now, you can check out the released version of the NCAA 2K13 mod in the NLSC Downloads Database, as well as the official Release Forum Thread if you want to say thanks to the guys for their hard work or if you have any issues or questions.  If you click Read More, you can check out my Video Review of the mod. Enjoy!

NBA 2K13 Now Available on Xbox Live Games on Demand

NBA 2K13 - Kevin Durant

If you’re interested in picking up NBA 2K13 for the Xbox 360 but don’t feel like heading out to the store to pick up a physical copy, good news! The game is now available on Xbox Live Games on Demand at a cost of $59.99, with a download size of 7.76 GB. More info on the On Demand version and other NBA 2K13 content available through Xbox Live can be found here.

While the Xbox 360 version does not offer the same modding capabilities as the PC version, it utilises Virtual Currency, includes features that were ultimately stripped from the PC version and has already received the official patch with gameplay and game mode fixes. You won’t get the All-Star Weekend DLC unless you pre-ordered the game or pick up the Dynasty Edition, however it remains to be seen whether or not the content will be released as a standalone purchase through Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network, possibly around the time of the actual 2013 All-Star Weekend in Houston.
