NLSC Podcast – Episode #60

NLSC Podcast Logo

We’re not wasting any time getting back into our digital broadcasting duties, as Episode #60 of the NLSC Podcast is out now. Join Arcane, JaoSming and myself as we discuss the latest events in the community, our recent basketball gaming experiences and more.

  • Issues with Virtual Currency and server downtime have been causing quite a bit of outrage for NBA 2K14 gamers. We weigh in on the situation.
  • Online issues aside, have we been enjoying NBA 2K14 next gen as of late?
  • Recent updates and more hands-on time with the game have served to make NBA Live 14 more enjoyable for JaoSming. It seems he’s not alone there.
  • The community has an opportunity to provide quality, constructive feedback to the NBA Live 14 development team. We intend to take advantage of it.
  • We provide a rundown of some our recent modding projects and plans for the near future.
  • 2014 marks the 20th anniversary of the NBA Live series. We’ll be doing a thing or two to celebrate the occasion as the year goes on.
  • Our NBA discussion for the week includes struggling teams, a rash of injuries and an idea that would make for the most exciting trade deadline in league history.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year, everyone! Hopefully, you’ve all made it safely through New Year’s Eve and had a great time with friends and family. I’d like to welcome you to a brand new year here at the NLSC, where as I’ve said before, we’re looking forward to more good stuff and fun times with basketball video games in 2014.

In last week’s Friday Five, I mentioned a few of the things that I’m looking forward to this year, including a couple of NLSC related projects. To briefly recap, we’ll have a new design coming in the near future, our modding community will be producing some excellent projects and we should have some other fun features and content coming your way for both NBA Live and NBA 2K. Stay tuned!

New Year’s Eve 2013

New Year's Eve

Another year gone, already? It certainly seems that way, as we find ourselves at the end of another eventful twelve months here at the NLSC. On behalf of the NLSC Team, I’d like to thank you all for your continued support of the website throughout 2013. It’s certainly been an interesting year for the community with the launch of the new consoles and the return of NBA Live; we’re looking forward to more fun and good stuff coming in 2014, so be sure to stick around!

If you’re partying your way into the new year, have fun but don’t forget to be safe. Be responsible, don’t drink and drive, and keep in mind Lutz’s words of wisdom for the occasion:

Remember the safest order of things on New Year’s Eve: 1. Fireworks, 2. Drink, and not vice versa!

See you in 2014!

Another new official roster has come through for NBA 2K14 today on all platforms, featuring lineups that have been updated through December 30th, 2013. At a glance, it appears to be a fairly minor update, with a few players still missing from the roster.

The latest update will come through automatically as long as your PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 or Xbox One is connected to the Internet. I’ve also added the latest roster and online data files to our offline pack, for PC users who wish to update their game manually.

The Friday Five: 5 Things I’m Looking Forward To In 2014

NBA Live 14: Kyrie Irving makes the pass

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.

We’ve come to the final edition of The Friday Five for 2013, as we find ourselves a mere four days away from a brand new year. Last week, I took a look back as I picked my five favourite Friday Fives from the first year of the column. This week, I’m looking ahead to the future, listing five things that I’m looking forward to in the coming year.

2013 was certainly an interesting year for our community, with several large modding projects, the launch of a new generation of consoles, the return of NBA Live after four years on the sideline and a very memorable NBA Finals series between the Miami Heat and San Antonio Spurs. Having said that, I believe that 2014 will have its fair share of interesting events, great games, highlights and moments from the NBA and of course, fun times with basketball video games. So, without any further ado and in no particular order, here are 5 Things I’m Looking Forward To In 2014.
