The eleventh episode of the NLSC Podcast has been recorded and is now available for your listening enjoyment! Leftos and I are your hosts and this week, we discuss our recent experiences playing NBA 2K13, the latest happenings in our community and for a change of pace, talk about some of the other games that we’ve been playing this past year. A rundown of this week’s topics is as follows:

  • What have we been playing in NBA 2K13 in the past week? Association and MyCAREER! We recap our recent experiences.
  • Certain elements of the commentary and presentation continue to impress us, though we talk about some of the improvements that could be made next year.
  • We provide a roundup of some recent happenings in the community and discuss ways that everyone can be a good citizen and get the most out of their time here.
  • Since news is a little slow this time of the year, we turn our attention to some other games that we’ve been playing, including our picks for Game of the Year.

December 8th Official Roster for NBA 2K13 Now Available

NBA 2K13 - Brandon Jennings

2K Sports have pushed through another official roster update for NBA 2K13, with lineups updated through December 8th, 2012. The update is available for the PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii U versions of the game, and will come through automatically as long as your computer or console is connected to the Internet. PC users may also opt to download our manual update pack, which is available here.

Please note that the PC version does not include the textures for the Christmas jerseys or the Heat’s White Hot alternates, however entries for them have been added to the roster which means modders can create updates for those jerseys without having to overwrite any of the existing uniforms. A few players are still missing in the latest roster, but it does include updated injury status for several players while making further ratings changes. You can check out an overview of the latest update, along with a video rundown, here over on Operation Sports.

Update on Official Rosters for NBA 2K13 PC

NBA 2K13 - Knicks vs Heat

2K Sports’s Chris “LD2k” Manning responded to our inquiry regarding future official roster updates for the PC version of NBA 2K13, with the latest word being that updates for the PC should be resuming with the next roster update that is pushed through (whenever that may be). While JaoSming’s earlier inquiries suggest that the PC updates will not be getting textures for the newly added jerseys, having the new roster updates will at least add entries for the new jerseys, which our community can then utilise when creating jersey updates.

While this means we won’t be getting the roster that came out yesterday, it at least appears as though the PC version hasn’t been forgotten completely. When the official updates do resume, I will of course be updating our manual update pack but until then, be sure to check out the NBA 2K13 Rosters section in our Downloads database and the NBA 2K13 Releases & Previews section of the NLSC Forum for the latest community-made current roster updates.
