The Tuesday Triple x3: More NBA Video Game Commercials

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.

Andrew featured his favorite non-gameplay NBA video game commercials in his latest Friday Five, I was a bit disappointed. I liked three of the seven he linked in his article, specifically the 2K14 next gen commercial with LeBron, and 2K11’s MJ’s Greatest Moments and Signature Moves. The rest, including Jordan showing off his many rings, just, I don’t know, didn’t resonate with me. So in response, I am going to triple the content of this Tuesday Triple with the following 9 great NBA video game commercials.

Further Update on NBA Live 14 Rosters

NBA Live Developer Fernando has posted an update on the status of the rosters for NBA Live 14 here in the Forum. It appears as though further issues have arisen, which have prevented the previously mentioned update from being pushed through. Although there is currently no timetable for a new roster update, the team is apparently working on those issues and are hoping to get a new update pushed through as soon as they possibly can.

In the meantime, NBA Live 14 has still been receiving other content updates, including new BIG Moments and LIVE Season games, as well as new packs and player cards in Ultimate Team. According to Fernando, the update system will be configured differently for NBA Live 15, so they don’t anticipate having similar issues with the game when it is released later this year.

Dumb Mondays: Free to Wait in NBA Games?

This is Dumb Mondays, starting the workweek off with silly facts or some of my opinions and predictions that you may or may not find interesting. This week I am sharing a dumb opinion and will be looking for and responding to your comments throughout the week.

If you haven’t heard of Jim Sterling’s webshow the Jimquisition, I would highly recommend checking it out for his comments on the video game industry. A few months ago he covered the topic of what he dubbed ‘Free to Wait‘ games. These are the games we see a lot of on mobile platforms, where gameplay is halted due to a timer that you can pay real or virtual currencies to speed up. These mechanics have been legitimized simply because the base game is free, but what if this terrible thing started showing up in our annual NBA games?

New Poll: Who will win the 2014 NBA Finals?

It’s that time of the year again. The Eastern and Western Conference Champions have been decided, and for the second year in a row, it’s the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs meeting in the NBA Finals. Who will win the Larry O’Brien trophy this year? Cast your vote in our latest poll, and be sure to join in the discussion here in the NBA & Basketball Talk section of the NLSC Forum!

Our previous poll asked How important is it to you that basketball video games feature historical content? Not surprisingly, most basketball gamers are very much in favour of historical content, as 39% said it was “vital” while a further 22% felt it was “very” important. 23% of voters felt that historical content is moderately important, 10% don’t feel that it’s very important, and a final 6% opined that it isn’t important at all.

June 1st Official Roster Update for NBA 2K14

I haven’t been keeping up with the official roster updates for NBA 2K14 for the past month or so, so I felt a bulletin and an update to our offline pack was overdue. The official roster updates have indeed continued throughout the 2014 NBA Playoffs, and new rosters are available featuring lineups that are current as of June 1st.

As always, you’ll get the latest rosters 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. Once again, I have updated our offline pack for PC users who wish to update their game manually for whatever reason.

The Friday Five: My 5 Favourite Basketball Video Game Commercials

The Friday Five

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.

I’m going with a lighter topic for The Friday Five this week, as I list my top five favourite basketball video game commercials. No doubt I’ll be back to covering topics with a little more substance sooner rather than later, but I thought it would be fun to take a look back at some memorable advertisements for NBA Live, NBA 2K and NBA Jam that got us talking about the games, or at the very least were entertaining to watch.

Just to clarify before I begin the countdown, I’m picking commercials and promotional spots here, as opposed to pure gameplay trailers. Including both in the one countdown would make for a long list and some very difficult choices, so picking my five favourite gameplay trailers is a topic for another day. With that said, here are my 5 Favourite Basketball Video Game Commercials!

Free NBA 2K14 on PS3 for PlayStation Plus Subscribers

The official PlayStation Blog has announced June’s lineup of free games for PlayStation Plus subscribers. NBA 2K14 on PlayStation 3 is a part of this and will be available for free from June 3rd until July 1st (as a part of the new setup for PS+ free games). The NBA Finals begin on the same day.

For those unfamiliar with PlayStation Plus, it is Sony’s version of Xbox Live. You need to have it to play multiplayer on PlayStation 4, but it also comes with exclusive discounts and free games each month. If you download (or ‘claim’ on the online store) a free game, it is yours to play as long as you have an active PS+ subscription. If it lapses, you lose access to any free games you downloaded, but keep any purchased with discounts.

It is worth mentioning that Vlad’s RED MC does support editing the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 roster files for NBA 2K14.

File Additions for NBA 2K10
