The Friday Five: 5 Problems Basketball Gamers No Longer Deal With

The Friday Five

Welcome to this week’s edition of The Friday Five! The Friday Five is a feature that I post every Friday in which I give my thoughts on a topic that’s related to NBA Live, NBA 2K, and other basketball video games, as well as the real NBA, and other areas of interest to our community. The feature is presented as either a list of five items, or in the form of a Top 5 countdown.

I’ve been playing basketball games for a long time – over twenty years, at least – and as I’ve said quite a few times before, I’m impressed when I reflect upon how far they’ve come. While it’s easy to get frustrated when we don’t see some of the most desired improvements year-to-year, when you start going back a generation or two, you can really see the leaps that basketball games have made. I’ve actually been spending a decent amount of time with older basketball titles as of late, as I continue to produce content for our ongoing 20th Anniversary of NBA Live celebrations.

Playing those older basketball games has been a fun trip down memory lane, but it’s also reminded me of some of the problems that were often present, even in the best titles from yesteryear. Needless to say, with basketball games progressing as much as they have, a few of those issues are even more glaring now. While today’s hoops games are still facing some of the same challenges, such as implementing a maximum difficulty setting that plays smarter instead of cheaper, there are some noteworthy problems that we no longer have to deal with. Let’s consider ourselves lucky that we’re not still battling the following five issues.

The Friday Five: My 5 Favourite Patches That I’ve Made

The Friday Five

Welcome to this week’s edition of The Friday Five! The Friday Five is a feature that I post every Friday in which I give my thoughts on a topic that’s related to NBA Live, NBA 2K, and other basketball video games, as well as the real NBA, and other areas of interest to our community. The feature is presented as either a list of five items, or in the form of a Top 5 countdown.

In this week’s Monday Tip-Off, I discussed our fondness for continuing to make patches for older basketball video games. As I said in that article, there’s a lot of nostalgia in going back and updating an old game, and it can also be a very rewarding experience, especially when there’s still a contingent of basketball gamers playing older releases. I certainly know a thing or two about that, as I was still releasing multiple roster patches for the last four PC versions of NBA Live up until a few years ago. As you may have noticed, I’ve also released a couple of smaller patches in recent weeks.

Since I’m still in the mood to talk about patches, I thought that for this week’s Friday Five, I’d take a look at five of my favourite patches that I’ve made for the NBA Live series. I’d talk about my work on NBA 2K, but I only have one release for that series: an open source roster with some minor edits and additions. Needless to say, when it comes to patching, I have a much longer history with NBA Live, and a much bigger catalogue of releases. So, without any further ado, here are my five favourite patches that I’ve made over the years.

We have some more file additions for NBA Live 08 coming your way today. As you may have seen in my release thread in the NBA Live 08 section of the Forum, I’ve released an adidas practice court, inspired by the one in NBA Live 15. I’m currently taking a shot at recreating NBA Live 16’s practice court as well.

Additionally, Croatico has released an all-time roster patch, giving every team the best players in franchise history, and S_Brat has uploaded a 2016 face pack for the Utah Jazz. Download all of the latest releases at the links below!

NLSC Podcast – Episode #147

NLSC Podcast Logo

It’s time for this week’s episode of the NLSC Podcast! In Episode #147, Arcane and I discuss another NBA Live 17 tidbit, reflect on our past week in basketball gaming, react to the 2016 NBA trade deadline, and more.

On this week’s show…

  • Basketball skill development coach and former Harlem Globetrotter Derick Grant revealed that he has been participating in some motion capture sessions for NBA Live 17.
  • Unfortunately we can’t play it ourselves, but NBA Live Mobile has been receiving some positive reactions from gamers.
  • We discuss an unfortunate bug in the NBA Live 16 rosters that is affecting this year’s rookie crop.
  • The NBA Live 14 and NBA Live 15 servers are still up and running. As you’d expect though, there’s not a lot of activity.
  • Mike Wang’s comments on Stephen Curry causing problems in the development of NBA 2K leads to some thoughts on realism in basketball video games.
  • More MyCAREER and Ultimate Team tales as we discuss our week in basketball gaming.
  • We talk about the reasons people go back and patch older games like NBA Live 08, and our enthusiasm for getting involved every once in a while.
  • The trade deadline did not exactly live up to our expectations…or for that matter, our predictions. We recap all the recent player movement.
  • Shockingly, the Portland Trail Blazers handed the Golden State Warriors a 32 point loss. They’re still on track to challenge 72-10, though.
  • It’s not looking promising for Chris Bosh, as he’s on the verge of being shut down for the second straight season due to health problems.
  • Sean Marks has become the first Kiwi to get an NBA GM gig. As Aussies, we ponder how we can piggyback on the achievement.
  • We wrap up Episode #147 of the NLSC Podcast with this week’s Bold Predictions.

2016 All-Star Weekend Logo Update for NBA Live 08

Since there are still gamers playing NBA Live 2005, NBA Live 06, NBA Live 07, NBA Live 08, and a handful of people still making some great updates for those games, I thought I’d whip up some quick logo updates for the All-Star Weekend. These updates add the logo for the 2016 NBA All-Star Weekend in Toronto to the menus and in-game overlays for all four games. Download them at the links below!

Wayback Wednesday: NBA Live 08’s Hidden Historical Teams

Michael Jordan vs. Joe Dumars in the Ultimate Jordan Roster for NBA Live 08

Welcome to Wayback Wednesday, your midweek blast from the past! This is a feature where we look back on yesteryear, dig into the archives, indulge in some nostalgia, and in some cases, wonder just what we were thinking. Check in every Wednesday for features and retrospectives on old basketball video games, old NLSC editorials published as-is with added commentary, and other flashback content.

Throughout the history of video games, most titles have had a secret or two to discover. Of course, for as long as gamers have been searching for hidden secrets and extra content, urban legends and hoaxes have also been making the rounds, leading to many wasted hours looking for something that isn’t there. Basketball games are no exception, and the fact that some games have featured hidden and unlockable content has naturally led to rumours of all sorts of secret players, teams, and other features, none of which were actually true.

Outside of a supposed hidden and unlockable dunk contest, one of the most popular rumours in NBA Live over the years was that by completing certain objectives, you could unlock historical teams. Of course, to include historical teams in the first place, EA Sports would need to secure the likeness rights for a lot of players. As such, retro teams didn’t become a reality until 2K Sports finally added them in NBA 2K11 via the Jordan Challenge, and they’ve managed to keep a bulk of their historical content in the game up until today. However, it appears that EA Sports was actually trying to do something similar, back in the days of NBA Live 08.

It’s arguably one of the most interesting Easter Eggs we’ve ever discovered, while poking through the files of a basketball video game. So let’s take a look back…way back…
