The Friday Five: 5 Best Things in NBA Live 14’s Dynasty Mode

Draft Lottery in NBA Live 14's Dynasty Mode

Welcome to this week’s edition of The Friday Five! This 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.

As I’ve mentioned several times before, I’m a huge fan of Dynasty Mode, as it’s been my game mode of choice in NBA Live since it was implemented as Franchise Mode way back in NBA Live 2000. Before the game came out last year, I talked about the things that I wanted to see in NBA Live 14’s Dynasty Mode, though I did temper my expectations somewhat as I knew there was much to focus on as the development team looked to relaunch the series.

As it turns out however, I’ve actually been pleasantly surprised by what Dynasty Mode has on offer in NBA Live 14. While there are still improvements to be made, features to be added and elements to be tweaked, the mode has returned fairly well-rounded and with some pleasing additions. As such, this week I’m listing the five best things in NBA Live 14’s Dynasty Mode.

NLSC Podcast – Episode #68

NLSC Podcast Logo

It’s that time of the week again. Join Arcane, JaoSming and myself for Episode #68 of the NLSC Podcast, where we recap the 2014 NBA trade deadline, discuss its impact on this year’s video games, talk about a new(ish) modding breakthrough and more.

  • The trade deadline has come and gone. NBA 2K14’s rosters have been updated, but NBA Live 14’s have not. We talk about the issues with NBA Live 14’s roster updates and reflect on EA’s good track record with NBA Live 09 and NBA Live 10.
  • What are some of the  features that we miss from previous NBA Live and NBA 2K titles? When do we think we’ll see some of them again, if ever?
  • On a similar note, today’s games are fully featured, but are they truly deep, well-rounded and varied experiences?
  • JaoSming talks a little about a new update for NBA 2K14 that actually modifies the game’s animations.
  • We run down all of the deadline trades and commiserate our ill-fated predictions. Also, is being bought out the new “dealt at the deadline”?
  • Raymond Felton adds to the New York Knicks’ embarrassment this season.
  • Bill Simmons was allowed to call last week’s Boston Celtics/Los Angeles Lakers game. It was far more entertaining than the game itself.
  • We wrap up the episode with a couple of other news items from around the NBA.

Damian Lillard takes on the Nuggets in NBA 2K14 PC

New official rosters are now available for NBA 2K14 on all platforms, featuring lineups that have been updated through February 25th, 2014. The latest update accounts for the injuries to Nene, Paul Millsap and Jason Terry, as well as the signings of Glen Davis and Jason Collins.

As always, the latest roster will come through automatically as long as your PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 or Xbox One is connected to the Internet when you fire up NBA 2K14. However, if you’re playing the PC version and would like to update your game manually for whatever reason, you can do so by using our offline pack which contains the latest roster and online data files.

The Tuesday Triple: Favorite MomentousCeltic Mixes

MomentousCeltic NBA 2K7 Tribute

This is The Tuesday Triple, where I attempt to break down random topics into three points, and maybe an “and one” if I need it. Similar to the established Friday Five by Andrew, the topics will be related to basketball video games and their communities as a whole.

If I had to create my own Mount Rushmore of those who influenced me in this community, it would probably be DahlpdubLeftos, and MomentousCeltic (a.k.a. IsoAchieved a.k.a. eDotd). The first three got me into modding and expanded my abilities throughout my years at the NLSC. MC’s influence was broader. MC’s mixes marked the first time I was able to appreciate what NBA 2K offered in their game. Call it EA or PC fanboyism, but before MC made mixes with NBA 2K7 I simply didn’t get what all the fuss was about with the 2K series. Seeing a skilled player continually showcase the game in such an awe-inspiring way changed that for me, well before the series hit PC. So kick back and enjoy the following mixes created by the master himself, MomentousCeltic.

Dumb Fact Monday: Playing Under the Moon

Moon in Target Center NBA Live 14

This is Dumb Fact Monday, serving up random facts about basketball video games that you may or may not find interesting.

While I am talking about playing underneath the Moon in a basketball videogame, for once I am not talking about anything Street related. This may or may not have affected me, because this week’s Dumb Fact Monday has completely confused me. I have no idea why this is in the game or if it is even on purpose. After researching it, I don’t believe this is grounded in any sort of reality or included for accuracy purposes. So please share in my confusion.

NLSC Bloopers: Take 1

NLSC Top 10 Plays of the Week

In addition to compiling countdowns of the community’s best plays in the NLSC Top 10 Plays of the Week, Arcane has also been collecting some of our strangest and funniest moments in order to create a blooper reel. Defensive lapses, layups and jumpshots that are missed rather embarrassingly, passes gone awry, players fumbling the ball over and over…it happens in the real NBA, so it’s fun to see it happen in NBA Live 14 and NBA 2K14 as well.

Check out NLSC Bloopers: Take 1 below, or watch it here over on YouTube if you can’t see the embedded video. Don’t forget to share your best plays and bloopers in this thread in The Virtual Hardwood section of the Forum, and be sure to catch the latest Top 10 Plays if you missed it last week.

Linear Street Career Mod Released for NBA 2K14 PC

Midnight Ballers 2K13 Mod - Street Court

I have released a beta version of a ‘linear’ street career mod for NBA 2K14 PC. Rather than simply reskinning the NBA game, this mod goes a bit further by trying to replicate the career or story modes seen in the NBA Street console games. When loaded, you are given a 29 game season against generic and NBA players that progressively become more difficult. When you win a game, you can trade away one of your players for someone on the team you just beat. For an added challenge, you can trade away your best player for the winning team’s worst player after a loss. This is all dependent on an honor system of course.

The mod features the Street Uniforms created by our own bigh0rt, and uses many of the Street Courts I have created the past few years. You can try the mod yourself by heading over to the Forum Thread, and for more information, as well as a glimpse of the mod’s gameplay, check out the Mod Review video below. I hope you enjoy!
