Monday Tip-Off: MyCAREER’s Funniest Text Message

Checking the phone in NBA 2K17's MyCAREER

We’re at midcourt, and the ball is about to go up…it’s Monday Tip-Off! Start your week here at the NLSC with a feature that’s dedicated to opinions, commentary, and other fun stuff related to NBA Live, NBA 2K, and other basketball video games.

I realise that not everyone is fan of the virtual Twitter and text messaging in NBA 2K17’s MyCAREER. For some people, it’s a pointless annoyance, an unnecessary addition that has nothing to do with gameplay or replicating the experience of being an NBA player. I can certainly understand that point of view, but I have to admit, I kind of like it. For me, it contributes to the immersive nature and world building aspects of MyCAREER, making the mode seem more alive with something that’s very prominent in the real world. Beyond that, of course, some of the messages and Tweets are actually pretty funny…though not always for the right reasons.

There’s unquestionably a lot of intentional humour in MyCAREER’s text messages and Tweets. Certain Tweets represent (with painful accuracy) some of the less intelligent things that we basketball fans are prone to putting out there on social media. There’s in-jokes, banter with other players, and texts that add minor plot points to the background storyline. There are supportive Tweets from Leftos, which I always enjoy. And then, there are the text messages that are just plain weird, and most likely glitched. That’s the type of message I’m sharing with you today.

NLSC Podcast – Episode #195

NLSC Podcast Logo

Episode #195 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Join Arcane, Kenny, and I as we discuss the latest controversy with Locker Codes in NBA 2K17, recap a tough week in 2K Pro-Am, and look ahead to the 2017 NBA All-Star Weekend.

On this week’s show…

  • NBA 2K17 celebrated Valentine’s Day with a Locker Code for a Kevin Love MyTEAM card, but the limited quantity didn’t exactly leave gamers swooning. We react to the controversy, and discuss what 2K could have done instead.
  • In Our Week in Basketball Gaming: NLSC THRILLHO enjoyed an exciting overtime win in 2K Pro-Am, but also weathered some tough, tough losses. Also, a milestone performance in MyCAREER, and expanding collections in MyTEAM.
  • A couple more significant trades have taken place, and it sounds as though a few more are in the works. We give our thoughts on the Toronto Raptors acquiring Serge Ibaka, and the Denver Nuggets trading away Jusuf Nurkic.
  • With the 2017 NBA All-Star Weekend just about ready to get underway, we offer up our predictions for all of the events.
  • We wrap up Episode #195 of the NLSC Podcast with a quick discussion of Ben Simmons. Will he make his debut this season, or shut it down until next year?

Patch 1.11 Now Available for NBA 2K17 PC & Xbox One

Cover player Paul George dunks the basketball in NBA 2K17

Patch 1.11 has come through for the PC and Xbox One versions of NBA 2K17, after being pushed through on PlayStation 4 last week. The PC patch weighs in at 39.5 MB, while the Xbox One patch is 2.7 GB in size. It should come through automatically, but if you encounter any difficulties, try restarting your Steam client or console.

Despite the patch’s size on the consoles, it’s intended to be a quick fix to resolve matchmaking issues. Having played several 2K Pro-Am games since the release of Patch 1.11 for the PS4 version of NBA 2K17, it certainly appears to have been successful in addressing those problems.

Incidentally, the discrepancy in the size of the updates is something that’s been discussed at length by gamers, and we’ve also touched upon it in the NLSC Podcast. According to LD2K, the patches are accumulative, meaning that every patch must contain the fixes from the previous title updates, as well as the new ones that are being pushed through. These restrictions are reportedly enforced by Microsoft and Sony, which is why the console patches are much larger than the updates that come through on PC, since Steam does not enforce the same condition. As yet, there’s been no clarification as to why the PS4 and X1 updates differ in size from each other, given that they contain the same content.

In any case, Patch 1.11 is now available on all three of NBA 2K17’s primary platforms. Feel free to share any thoughts on the latest update in the comments section below, as well as in this thread in the Forum. You can also find a complete update history for the game here in our Wiki.

Monday Tip-Off: Pro Stick vs. Shoot Button in NBA 2K (Part 2)

Shooting a jumpshot with the Pro Stick in NBA 2K17

We’re at midcourt, and the ball is about to go up…it’s Monday Tip-Off! Start your week here at the NLSC with a feature that’s dedicated to opinions, commentary, and other fun stuff related to NBA Live, NBA 2K, and other basketball video games.

A few months back, I discussed the pros and cons of the Pro Stick and Shoot Button in NBA 2K, and my preference for using the button. Since the changes to the shooting mechanics in NBA 2K17 had just been announced, I noted that I’d be open to changing my approach, depending on the precision that was required when using the Pro Stick, and whether or not it offered a noticeable advantage. I also mentioned that I was more inclined to use the Pro Stick for shots in the paint, because of the ability to perform floaters and other elusive shots on cue, as well as have more control over dunk and layup animations.

NBA 2K17 has been out for about five months now, and has received eleven official patches, as well as several tuning updates. With all the gameplay tweaks, and having tried out more than a couple of different jumpshot animations for my MyPLAYER, there have been plenty of variables as I’ve experimented with both methods of shooting the basketball. I expect to be playing NBA 2K17 for several months yet, so the experiment is ongoing. As I look ahead to future NBA 2K releases, I must admit that my mind isn’t completely made up about which method I favour, and the direction that the controls and shooting mechanics should take.

NBA 2K17 Patch 1.11 Released; Features Matchmaking Fixes

NBA 2K17: Searching for an Opponent in 2K Pro-Am

Patch 1.11 has come through for the PlayStation 4 version of NBA 2K17, and should begin downloading automatically as long as your console is connected to the Internet. The PC and Xbox One versions of the game are expected to receive the same title update soon.

Despite weighing in at the usual 7.6 GB, Patch 1.11 is basically a hotfix for some of the matchmaking issues that users have experienced recently. Arcane and I discussed those issues in Episode #194 of the NLSC Podcast, though we did actually manage to play a couple of games on Friday night (Australian time), before the patch was actually released.

For a full update history for NBA 2K17, check out this article in the Wiki. Are you still experiencing matchmaking issues, or has Patch 1.11 resolved the problem? Have your say in the comments section below, as well as in this thread in the Forum.

NLSC Podcast – Episode #194

NLSC Podcast Logo

Episode #194 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Join Arcane and I as we discuss this week’s news and events, including the newly announced NBA 2K eSports league, problems in 2K Pro-Am, and an unfortunate incident involving Charles Oakley.

On this week’s show…

  • 2K Sports is partnering with the NBA for an official eSports league. It’s a cool concept, but will it ultimately benefit a majority of the userbase?
  • In Our Week in Basketball Gaming: We’ve had very little success getting matched up for games in 2K Pro-Am following Patch 1.10, though we did hit up MyPARK and a couple of Walk-On games. Also, Playoff success in MyCAREER, and the early stages of building a powerful MyTEAM squad.
  • New York Knicks legend Charles Oakley was thrown out of Madison Square Garden in controversial fashion. Seems most observers are on Oak’s side, and we find it hard to disagree there.

Latest NBA 2K17 Patch Now Available on PC

LeBron James vs. Carmelo Anthony in NBA 2K17

The PC version of NBA 2K17 has received the latest official patch. It should come through automatically as long as you have an active Internet connection, but if it isn’t showing up, restart your Steam client. The patch weighs in at around 114 MB.

As yet, there’s been no announcement regarding the latest PC patch, so it’s unclear which version it is. Over the past week or so, three patches have been released for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of NBA 2K17: Patch 1.08, Patch 1.09 (reportedly identical to Patch 1.08), and Patch 1.10. At this time, it’s unclear whether the PC received a combined update, and what its version number is.

This obviously makes it a little difficult to maintain an accurate record of the game’s update history on PC, but I’ve done the best I can in our Forum and Wiki resources, at least until further information is released. In the meantime, the good news is that the PC version of NBA 2K17 has received the latest update, which contained some key bug fixes and a couple of gameplay tweaks. The bad news is that it likely doesn’t address any PC-specific problems, such as performance issues and crashes.

In any case, feel free to add any impressions in the comments section below, as well as in this thread in the NLSC Forum. For an update history of NBA 2K17 complete with all the patch notes, check out this article in our Wiki.

Monday Tip-Off: Is the Future of Modding In-Game?

Team Designs, an example of in-game modding in NBA 2K17

We’re at midcourt, and the ball is about to go up…it’s Monday Tip-Off! Start your week here at the NLSC with a feature that’s dedicated to opinions, commentary, and other fun stuff related to NBA Live, NBA 2K, and other basketball video games.

TGsoGood offered up an interesting question in the Forum a couple of weeks ago, concerning the current state of modding. He noted that while modding has always had its ups and downs, the hobby is not quite what it used to be, at least for the most recent releases. While modders have been a little more active so far this year, and the tools and resources at their disposal are the best they’ve been since the PC started receiving the same version of NBA 2K as the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, as TGsoGood alluded to, we’re not finding ourselves in a new golden era of modding.

With that being said, there are plenty of users who are customising NBA 2K17. As TGsoGood also pointed out, gamers are making great use of the team rebranding and roster customisation options to create a variety of modifications that are distributed through the in-game sharing facilities. Therefore, the question before us is this: is the future of modding in-game? Since Arcane and Kenny aren’t involved with the modding scene, I decided that I’d tackle the issue in this week’s Monday Tip-Off, rather than on the NLSC Podcast.

NBA 2K17 Patch 1.10 Released

LeBron James with the layup in NBA 2K17

Yet another patch (1.10) has come through for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of NBA 2K17. As usual, it should come through as long as your console is connected to the Internet, but if it isn’t showing up, a restart may be required.

Patch 1.10 is a minor update, adding 2K All-Star Tournament functionality, and addressing an exploit with the hop step move. Patch 1.08/1.09 addressed a handful of technical problems and a couple of gameplay issues; for more information, check out the patch notes here.

This is the third update that the console versions of NBA 2K17 have received this week. As Pastapadre noted, with the PlayStation 4 patches weighing in at over 7 GB, PS4 users have had to download over 22 GB of new data over the past three days alone.

As it stands, the PC version has yet to receive any of the latest patches. The PC version is generally excluded from eSports tournaments, so it’s unlikely that 2K All-Star Tournament functionality will be added on that platform. Other issues addressed in the latest patches are obviously applicable to the PC version of NBA 2K17 however, so hopefully the updates will come through soon.

In the meantime, feel free to share your impressions of the patch in the comments section below, as well as in this thread in the NLSC Forum. Don’t forget that you can also find a complete update history for NBA 2K17 here in our Wiki.

NLSC Podcast – Episode #193

NLSC Podcast Logo

Episode #193 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! We’re back after taking last week off due to Australia Day, and we have some interesting topics to discuss, including the future of NBA Live, a new patch for NBA 2K17, All-Star Weekend 2017, and more.

On this week’s show…

  • It appears as though The Drive to NBA Live has been cancelled, and EA Sports will instead be focusing on developing a fully featured NBA Live 18, coming in the Fall. We give our thoughts on the situation.
  • A new patch has come through for NBA 2K17, addressing a few key problems gamers have been having. Aside from that, have we noticed any remarkable differences?
  • In Our Week in Basketball Gaming: an update on our MyCAREER games, including some All-Star Weekend disappointment, and the latest highs and lows of NLSC THRILLHO in 2K Pro-Am.
  • The 2017 All-Stars have been announced. Unfortunately for Zaza Pachulia, the league stepped in and squashed his All-Star hopes.
  • Dysfunction and drama are the common themes in the NBA right now, from the Chicago Bulls’ struggles to a war of words between LeBron James and Charles Barkley.
