Next Gen Title Screens for NBA Live 06-08

Next Gen Title Screen for NBA Live 08 PC

You may have noticed that I’ve been using a few more screenshots from the Xbox 360 versions of NBA Live in some of my recent articles. That’s because I picked up an Elgato capture card not too long ago, and I’ve been keen to put it to use to grab some media for both written articles and video features.

The thought occurred that I could take screenshots of the title screens from the Xbox 360 releases, and create some custom title screens for their PC equivalents. It’s taken some careful and creative cropping, and in the case of NBA Live 07, I’ve had to use the pre-boot screen as the main title screen didn’t really suit the 512×512 file that the PC version uses. In any case, I’ve come up with some “next gen” title screens – well, next generation for the time the games came out, anyway – for NBA Live 06-08. Download them here:

A few previews:

As I’ve said before, I don’t have as much time to mod these days, especially when it comes to committing to creating any current roster updates. However, I do still like to dabble here and there when an idea comes to mind, so whenever I can set aside the time, I’ll be sure to upload the occasional release every now and again.

Wayback Wednesday: NBA Live PC Mod

Shaquille O'Neal dunks in NBA Live PC for NBA Live 06

This is Wayback Wednesday, your midweek blast from the past! In this feature, we dig into the archives, look back at the history of basketball gaming, and indulge in some nostalgia. Check in every Wednesday for retrospectives and other features on older versions of NBA Live, NBA 2K, and old school basketball video games in general. You’ll also find old NLSC editorials re-published with added commentary, and other flashback content.

Inspired by last week’s dig through the archives, I went rummaging again to see what else I could find. My search yielded some preview screenshots for the NBA Live PC mod, which became the NLSC’s comprehensive roster update for the PC version of NBA Live 06 for several years. Since I enjoyed looking back at my 1996 season mod for NBA Live 2004 last week, I thought that I’d do the same for a current roster update that I maintained for one of my all-time favourite games in the series. With NBA Live 06 being next up in our 20th Anniversary of NBA Live retrospectives, it also seemed fitting.

So, why did the mod bear that name, and how did it come about? Let’s take a look back…way back…

Wayback Wednesday: The Temple in NBA Live 06 & 07

This is Wayback Wednesday, your midweek blast from the past! In this feature, we dig into the archives, look back at the history of basketball gaming, and indulge in some nostalgia. Check in every Wednesday for retrospectives and other features on older versions of NBA Live, NBA 2K, and old school basketball video games in general. You’ll also find old NLSC editorials re-published with added commentary, and other flashback content.

Whenever a basketball video game makes the leap to a new generation of gaming hardware, there’s usually some sort of feature or gimmick that underlines the fact that it’s a new era. The jump to the Xbox 360 marked the start of a difficult time for the NBA Live series, with the 360 version of NBA Live 06 being something of a disappointment. I’ll go into more details about the game in my forthcoming retrospective for our 20th Anniversary of NBA Live content, but one very cool feature that the game did boast was its practice gym: The Temple.

The Temple – which also appeared in NBA Live 07 – wasn’t just eye-catching in design, but also a somewhat revolutionary take on the existing practice mode. Let’s take a look back…way back…
