Details on Latest NBA Live 14 Content Update

NBA Live 14: Damian Lillard vs. Kyrie Irving

If you played NBA Live 14 the past couple of days, you may have noticed a system-level patch download and install, as well as an in-game download. Sean O’Brien has just posted an update on what was changed in this latest update, as well as reaffirming the promise for additional updates coming soon.

Of note, Sean mentioned that shot timing has been adjusted both offline and online, with tweaks being made to limit mid and long range shot blocking. The crowd noise and camera issues in BIG Moments and LIVE Season modes have also been fixed.

Feel free to share your impressions of the latest patch in the comments below and in our NBA Live 14 Forum.

The Friday Five: My 5 Favourite Friday Fives (2013 Edition)

Scottie Pippen on the Utah Jazz in NBA Live 2002

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.

As 2013 swiftly draws to a close, there are just a couple of Fridays left in the year and thus only a couple of editions of The Friday Five before we find ourselves in 2014. I’ve definitely enjoyed using this column to express my opinions throughout the year and hopefully, it’s given you all something fun and interesting to read every Friday. I’m looking forward to bringing you more editorials and Top 5 countdowns in the new year.

This week, I thought I’d take a look back at some of my favourite editions of The Friday Five so far. These aren’t in any particular order, but they’re all features that were either fun to write or stand out as some of my favourite topics to discuss. If you can forgive the shameless plug, read on to find out my five favourite Friday Fives from 2013.
