The Friday Five: 5 Non-Sim Elements in Sim Basketball Games

The Friday Five

Welcome to this week’s edition of The Friday Five! This is a feature that I post every Friday in which I give my thoughts on a topic that’s related to basketball video games, the real NBA or another area of interest to our community, either as a list of five items or in the form of a Top 5 countdown.

After offering up a few opinions on the real NBA in last week’s edition of the Friday Five, this week I’m back to talking about basketball video games. Being a basketball gamer that prefers to see a healthy amount of realism in the annual titles, I thought I’d reflect on some of the non-sim elements that have found their way into sim basketball games over the years.

For the sim-oriented gamer, these elements can range from pet peeves and minor irritations to major distractions and issues that can severely affect one’s enjoyment of a game. However, as you’ll find out, at least one of the items on this list isn’t such an unwelcome idea. Without any further ado, here are 5 Non-Sim Elements in Sim Basketball Games.

NLSC Podcast – Episode #73

NLSC Podcast Logo

With JaoSming hitting the books this week, Episode #73 of the NLSC Podcast is a two man show featuring Arcane and myself. Tune in for a discussion of legends in NBA Live, the latest news and results from around the NBA, and some other gaming topics.

  • We open the show by recounting some of our favourite April Fools’ Day gags from around the web this year.
  • A new BIG Moment in NBA Live 14 goes old school with Magic Johnson. Could we see legends having a bigger presence in NBA Live 15?
  • Some news and notes from the latest installment of Coach’s Corner are also discussed.
  • The NBA 2K13 servers have now been shut down. This sets us thinking: will next year’s server shutdowns render NBA Live 14 and NBA 2K14 next gen unplayable?
  • We mention a couple of housekeeping matters, including details on some forthcoming features.
  • The Miami Heat are on top of the East for the first time this season, while the San Antonio Spurs set a team record with their current winning streak. Will we see a rematch in this year’s NBA Finals?
  • Brooklyn has won fourteen straight at home and seem to be in good form at the right time. Can the Nets make some noise in the Playoffs?
  • We discuss an interesting comparison between Kwame Brown and Roy Hibbert.
  • Kyrie Irving may possibly return to action for the final few games of the season, which prompts another discussion about Aussies in the NBA.
  • The Philadelphia 76ers’ losing streak is over at 26. Our condolences to the Detroit Pistons and their fans.
  • Who’s making the eighth and final seed in both Conferences?
  • We wrap up the show with some talk about other video games.

Dumb Fact Monday: Playable Jay-Z

This is Dumb Fact Monday, serving up random facts about basketball video games that you may or may not find interesting.

It seems like only recently that we were all complaining about the gold swirls and menu equalizers in NBA 2K13, probably because it was only last year. Executively produced by Jay-Z, NBA 2K13 gained criticism for the presentation elements that were supposedly designed by the man himself. 2K themselves claimed that Jay-Z had his fingerprints all over the game, and articles came out about Jay-Z using his star power to get Scottie Pippen and Charles Barkley in last year’s game for the Team USA vs Dream Team hype. Aside from the presentation elements and his name on the box, Jay-Z was not included in the game’s celebrity team and was only shown in videogame form in the crowd of Net games.
