NLSC Podcast – Episode #155

NLSC Podcast Logo

Episode #155 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Join Arcane, Kenny, and I as we overcome a couple of annoying technical issues to discuss some issues facing PC basketball gaming, the quality of content updates for NBA Live, the first week of the 2016 NBA Playoffs, and more.

On this week’s show…

  • We open Episode #155 with a look at some of the challenges that face PC basketball gaming. Of course, we’d still like to see NBA Live return to the PC, and a more modder-friendly NBA 2K.
  • For some reason, NBA 2K16 on Steam has been tagged as a “Psychological Horror” title. Go figure.
  • Is it currently too much of a grind to level up players in NBA Live and NBA 2K?
  • There hasn’t been much in the way of gear, shoe, and accessory updates in LIVE Pro-Am. Do we expect the content updates to improve in NBA Live 17?
  • In Our Week in Basketball Gaming: Ultimate Team, MyTEAM, MyCAREER, and one annoying crash.
  • Week 1 of the 2016 NBA Playoffs is in the books, and we have to admit, we’re not as excited for the postseason as we’d like to be.
  • Tom Thibodeau has joined the Minnesota Timberwolves as their new coach and president. Also, a fantastic old school photo of him has emerged.
  • The first NBA award winners for 2016 have been announced. No arguments so far.
  • We manage to mention the NBL, but only because it looks like Anthony Bennett is headed Down Under.
  • This week’s Bold Predictions feature a very bold prediction indeed.
  • We wrap up Episode #155 with a chilling tale of deception. And by chilling, we actually mean kind of amusing.

NLSC Podcast – Episode #154

NLSC Podcast Logo

Welcome to Episode #154 of the NLSC Podcast! Arcane and I certainly have a bit to talk about this week with the end of the 2016 regular season, the Playoffs looming, and both Kobe Bryant and the Golden State Warriors making history. Also, some very early news about the NBA 2K17 cover and pre-order bonuses.

On this week’s show…

  • 2K have announced that Kobe Bryant will appear on the cover of a special Legend Edition of NBA 2K17. Have they also hinted at another possible cover player for this year?
  • We discuss a reel of NBA Live 16 player faces that a graphic designer posted on YouTube.
  • In Our Week in Basketball Gaming: Arcane’s MyPLAYER gets onto 2K TV in MyCAREER, while Andrew wonders what to play next.
  • Kobe Bryant has gone out in style, scoring 60 points in his final game. We reflect a little on the Black Mamba’s legendary career.
  • The Golden State Warriors become the first team to win 73 games, beating the Chicago Bulls’ twenty year old record. We congratulate them, but grumble a little about some vocal (and hypocritical) fanboys.
  • With the 2016 regular season in the books, we look ahead to the Playoffs and make our first round predictions.
  • Speaking of which, we end Episode #154 of the NLSC Podcast with this week’s Bold Predictions. After getting our picks right last week, can we both get a streak going as we head into the postseason?

NLSC Podcast – Episode #153

NLSC Podcast Logo

Episode #153 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Arcane and I are your hosts this week, as Kenny was unavailable to join us, but hopefully we’ll have him back on the show soon. In the meantime, we have a variety of topics to talk about this week, including what we’ve been playing, recent content updates for NBA Live 16 and NBA 2K17, and the latest news and results as the 2016 NBA season winds down.

On this week’s show…

  • A new roster came through for NBA Live 16 last week. We recap some of the recent ratings changes, including the top five players in the game as of the latest roster.
  • After a breakdown of some forthcoming Throwback Thursday content in NBA 2K16’s MyTEAM, we give some more thoughts on the mode, and compare it to NBA Live 16’s Ultimate Team.
  • Do we expect face scanning to be available in NBA Live 17?
  • Following on from this week’s Monday Tip-Off column, we discuss whether or not basketball video games should have downloadable content, outside of the regular roster/art updates.
  • If you’re looking for a new basketball game to try out, Dr B has released a beta version of his Slam Dunk Contest game exclusively at the NLSC.
  • In Our Week in Basketball Gaming: More retro gaming, and a few games of MyCAREER.
  • Moving on to this week’s NBA discussion, Sam Hinkie appears to have grown weary of the Process, as he’s stepping down from the Philadelphia 76ers’ front office.
  • Jerry Sloan has announced that he has Parkinson’s Disease. We wish him good health, and all the best.
  • As the 2016 NBA season draws to a close, so too does Kobe Bryant’s career. We offer up some further thoughts on the Black Mamba’s farewell tour, as his final game looms.
  • Shaquille O’Neal, Allen Iverson, and Yao Ming are heading to Springfield, but at least one former player doesn’t believe Yao is a deserving Hall of Famer.
  • Tim Duncan is now the third player to amass 1000 career wins in the regular season.
  • The Golden State Warriors need four straight wins to top 72-10. As comparisons continue, a recent article about Michael Jordan has one of us a tad riled up.
  • Episode #153 of the NLSC Podcast ends with this week’s Bold Predictions, featuring predictions that are lofty enough to truly justify the reverb effect.

NLSC Podcast Logo

It’s April 1st, but no fooling: we have a new episode of the NLSC Podcast out today! Episode #152 sees us return to a three man booth for the first time in a long while, as Kenny joins Arcane and I to discuss NBA Live, NBA 2K, and recent events in the real NBA.

On this week’s show…

  • We open the show with another reminder about our NBA Live 17 and NBA 2K17 Wishlists. Get your feedback in ASAP!
  • Since it’s Kenny’s first time on the NLSC Podcast, he provides some thoughts on what he’d like to see get better in NBA 2K, what he’s been enjoying in NBA 2K16, and what would draw him back to NBA Live.
  • When should NBA Live 17 be released? Should it be before, after, or at the same time as NBA 2K17?
  • Recently, there’s been talk of cross-platform play between the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. We discuss what that would mean for basketball gaming, should it ever come to fruition.
  • Rocket League’s basketball-themed add-on Hoops is set to arrive some time in April, free of charge.
  • In Our Week in Basketball Gaming: modding, MyCAREER, MyTEAM, and 2K Pro-Am.
  • Turning our attention to real basketball, we chat about the Golden State Warriors closing in on the Chicago Bulls’ record, the drama with D’Angelo Russell, and the retirement of one of Australia’s best players.
  • We wrap up Episode #152 of the NLSC Podcast with this week’s Bold Predictions, as Andrew seeks a second point, Arcane seeks to stay above .500, and Kenny seeks to get on the board out of the gate.

The Friday Five: 5 Popular NBA Jerseys (I Actually Dislike)

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.

Last week I listed five unpopular NBA jerseys that I personally like, so this week I’m going the other way and looking at five popular jerseys which I’m not that keen on. I’ve seen these jerseys make a few “best NBA uniforms” lists and be talked about favourably by my fellow NBA fans, so for the purposes of this feature, I think it’s fair enough to call them popular. For the record, I certainly don’t dislike them just because they’re popular, but regardless, I’m in the minority as far as my opinion of them is concerned.

Please note that there are no sleeved jerseys on this list – remember, I did say “popular”! – but rest assured that those designs still rank among my least favourites, well ahead of the uniforms I’ve listed below. I should also make it clear that I don’t necessarily think that these are all bad designs from an objective point of view; they simply don’t appeal to me. With that said, here are five popular NBA jerseys that I dislike, for one reason or another.

NLSC Podcast – Episode #151

NLSC Podcast Logo

Here is Episode #151 of the NLSC Podcast, right on schedule! In this week’s show, Arcane and I discuss some new content in Ultimate Team, reflect on the NBA Live 17 and NBA 2K17 Wishlists so far, talk about some controversy with NBA 2K on Twitter, and look back on the past week in the NBA.

On this week’s show…

  • As the 2016 season winds down, new Playoff Push content has been added to Ultimate Team in NBA Live 16.
  • NBA 2K reached a million followers on Twitter and celebrated with a Locker Code. Unfortunately, the random giveaways left something to be desired.
  • How have the Wishlists for NBA Live 17 and NBA 2K17 been shaping up so far?
  • Pro-Am has been well-received by some NBA Live 16 gamers. What would we like to see done with the mode in NBA Live 17?
  • In the latest edition of Our Week in Basketball Gaming, Andrew talks a little about his recent NBA Live modding projects.
  • The San Antonio Spurs handed the Golden State Warriors their seventh loss last week, but the defending champions are otherwise still going strong.
  • Speaking of the Spurs, they now hold an impressive distinction over the rest of the NBA.
  • LeBron James has unfollowed the Cleveland Cavaliers on social media. Is everyone reading too much into it, or is it indeed newsworthy? Would we see the same thing from previous generations?
  • In sad news, NBA on TNT’s Craig Sager has announced his cancer is no longer in remission.
  • We talk about the 2016 Playoff race, and pick the teams we think will beat out their closest competitors for the eighth seed in both Conferences.
  • In this week’s Bold Predictions…Andrew is finally on the board! Will this be the beginning of a new streak?
  • We wrap up Episode #151 of the NLSC Podcast with a trivia note comparing LeBron James and Andre Miller.

The Friday Five: 5 Unpopular NBA Jerseys (I Actually Like)

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.

The 2016 NBA regular season is winding down, and we’re still a couple of months away from getting a steady stream of concrete information about NBA Live 17 and NBA 2K17. In recent weeks, I’ve been talking a lot about what I’d like to see in the upcoming games, both on the NLSC Podcast and in the Friday Five, and I will continue to do that. However, I thought I’d change things up in today’s Five, and talk a little about fashion. Well, on-court fashion in the NBA, at any rate.

This week, I’m talking about NBA jerseys that tend to be unpopular, or make a lot of “worst NBA jerseys” lists, that I actually happen to like. I can’t defend them all as outstanding or timeless designs, as some of them are definitely products of their era, but I still like them all the same. I know that I’m definitely not alone in liking some of these jerseys, but some fans might declare it to be a sign of bad taste. Nevertheless, here are five unpopular NBA jerseys that I don’t dislike the same way a lot of people do.

NLSC Podcast – Episode #150

NLSC Podcast Logo

Episode #150 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Arcane and I look to the future as we discuss a couple of recent Wishlist suggestions for NBA Live 17 and NBA 2K17, reflect on our past week of basketball gaming, and react to some recent news and rumours.

On this week’s show…

  • Tipping things off with some Wishlist talk, we ask ourselves: aside from improved gameplay, what’s the one enhancement that would keep us playing NBA Live 17?
  • We also discuss a couple of recent suggestions for NBA 2K17, regarding potential ratings and Badges.
  • Are we bothered by the NBA Live Development Team reaching out to NBA 2K gamers?
  • Rocket League is set to receive a basketball mode called Hoops, which we’re both looking forward to.
  • Our Week in Basketball Gaming has included some time with Ultimate Team, Pro-Am, MyCAREER, and a few retro titles.
  • NBA referee Joey Crawford has retired effectively immediately, due to his knee injuries.
  • Speaking of knee injuries, Jahlil Okafor is set to miss the rest of his rookie season after tearing his meniscus.
  • Could Phil Jackson return to the sidelines, only coaching the New York Knicks during home games? It seems Carmelo Anthony isn’t a fan of the idea.
  • Ben Simmons has been dethroned in the mock draft over at Draft Express. He’s also been hit with a couple of unflattering comparisons.
  • We wrap up Episode #150 of the NLSC Podcast with this week’s Bold Predictions, in which Arcane is back at .500, and Andrew is still seeking his first point. Of course…

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…

  • We discuss an unfortunate bug in the NBA Live 16 rosters that is affecting this year’s rookie crop.

  • 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.

Tune in to Episode #146 of the NLSC Podcast! This week, Arcane and I discuss some NBA Live 17 news, react to the 2016 NBA All-Star Weekend, speculate on this year’s trade deadline, and more.

On this week’s show…

  • NBA Live 16 received a new patch last week, including the All-Star court and jerseys, and new Ultimate Team challenges. BIG Moments have also finally been updated!
  • A few more people seem to be playing LIVE Pro-Am, which is promising.
  • NBA Live is returning to the mobile platform with a free game. Since the list of platforms is expanding, can we get a PC version, please?
  • NBA Live 17 will reportedly add venues for the Goodman League, Drew League, and Dyckman Basketball Tournament. Sounds good to us.

  • Our Week in Basketball Gaming includes more Ultimate Team stories, and some MyCAREER advice.
  • The 2016 NBA All-Star Weekend is in the books. We loved the Slam Dunk Contest; the All-Star Game, not so much.

  • Chris Bosh is reportedly facing another health scare, though the Miami Heat are insisting otherwise.

The Friday Five: Revisiting My Predictions for the 2016 NBA Season

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 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.

With the All-Star Weekend upon us, we’re essentially at the midway point of the 2016 NBA season. Normally I discuss a topic related to the NBA’s midseason classic in the Five that precedes the All-Star Weekend, but this year, I wanted to do something a little different. This time, I wanted to look back at some predictions I made at the start of the season, and see how I’m faring so far. If you’re a regular listener of the NLSC Podcast, you know how well my NBA predictions generally turn out!

That said, I’m actually not doing too badly. While there’s still quite a few games left to play, several weeks during which time a lot of things can change, a couple of my predictions aren’t too wide of the mark. One has turned out to be a jinx, and two are looking quite precarious, but the other two stand a good chance of being correct. So, without any further ado, let’s revisit the five predictions I made for the 2016 NBA season, and see how each of them are looking at the halfway mark.

  • A list of players missing from NBA 2K16’s historical teams has been posted over on Reddit, leading us to wonder about the future of retro teams.

  • How did we originally find the NLSC and get involved with it? We answer a mailbag question about our history with the site.
  • Who are some our favourite fringe NBA players? Have we ended up acquiring any of them in our franchise games?
  • Derek Fisher is the latest head coach to get the axe. The circus continues in New York.
  • ESPN has named Michael Jordan the greatest NBA player of all-time in a recent feature. We don’t disagree.
  • The NBA is considering changing the Hack-a-Whoever rules. We’re not heartbroken.
  • Blake Griffin has been suspended for his altercation with an assistant equipment manager. Meanwhile, Markieff Morris is still trying to force his way out of Phoenix.

NLSC Podcast – Episode #144

NLSC Podcast Logo

We’re a little late again this week, but our streak is alive as Episode #144 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! This week, Arcane and I discuss recent news and events in basketball gaming, bring back a couple of segments, and talk about a few NBA topics including the upcoming 2016 All-Star Weekend.

On this week’s show…

  • The NBA Live 16 rosters have been updated, but do not include this year’s All-Star teams, jerseys, or court. We also touch on the continued lack of updates to BIG Moments and NBA Rewind.
  • Following our speculation last week, the NBA 2K16 Road To The Finals Pro-Am tournament has tipped off with pre-season play. Unfortunately for PC gamers, it appears to be console only.
  • Take Two is being sued over the unauthorised use of certain players’ tattoos in NBA 2K16. Fair or foul?
  • Returning in this week’s NLSC Podcast, Our Week in Basketball Gaming! This week, it’s all about Ultimate Team, MyCAREER, and a rant about sore losers online.
  • What are some of the biggest mistakes we’ve made in franchise modes over the years?
  • Do we have any plans to get into some NBA 2K16 modding?
  • Jeff Hornacek has been fired by the Phoenix Suns, and replaced by Earl Watson. Not altogether surprising.
  • With the trade deadline looming, we look at some rumours making the rounds, and consider who might be changing teams. Will any big names be wearing new jerseys after the deadline?
  • We give our thoughts on the suggestion that Kobe Bryant will shut it down after All-Star Weekend.
  • The participants for the Slam Dunk Contest and Three-Point Shootout have been announced, so we throw out some early predictions.
  • Could Kevin Durant end up with the Golden State Warriors next season?
  • In this week’s Bold Predictions…more of the same. The slump has to end sometime, right?
  • We wrap up Episode #144 of the NLSC Podcast with the return of Trivia Question, featuring a tidbit from beyond the arc.
