We’ve recorded Episode #74 of the NLSC Podcast and it’s out now for your listening enjoyment (sorry, Leftos). Join Arcane, JaoSming and myself as we discuss our favourite basketball video games, ideas for future releases from EA and 2K, modding, the race to the 2014 NBA Playoffs, and more…even wrasslin’!
- We tip things off with a couple of housekeeping matters, specifically the forthcoming mobile design for the Forum and the future of the NLSC Top 10 Plays of the Week.
- Once again, we remind everyone to add their feedback to the NBA Live 15 Wishlist ASAP. We also speculate on when we think we’ll start seeing information and previews for NBA Live 15 and NBA 2K15. Spoiler: Probably not next week.
- 2K Sports partnered with the Make-a-Wish Foundation to do something pretty cool for a young man who loves NBA 2K.
- JaoSming takes us through some exciting developments in modding…exciting enough to get him out of bed in the middle of the night, in fact.
- The subject of highlight plays in basketball video games is brought up. How can they be implemented without being gamebreakers?
- We also discuss the feasibility and likelihood of career games being carried over to the next year’s release. Could it be done without cheapening the experience?
- Kevin Durant has surpassed a scoring mark set by Michael Jordan, leading us to once again quickly revisit this year’s MVP race.
- Speaking of milestones, Dirk Nowitzki and Steve Nash moved up on the career leaderboards. We comment on their place in NBA history.
- Joe Dumars is reportedly on his way out in Detroit, but is Isiah Thomas on the way in? Meanwhile, Mitch Kupchak looks to remain with the Lakers.
- We make a few more predictions as the NBA regular season winds down, as well as weigh in on the Nets’ season sweep of the defending champion Heat. Foul or not a foul by Plums?
- You’ll never guess what recent gaming announcement has Arcane excited! (A new Fallout game?)
- Wrasslin’ fans JaoSming and Andrew reflect on Wrestlemania 30, the Undertaker and other events from the world of the squared circle.
