The Friday Five: 5 Pitfalls Future Basketball Games Must Avoid

NBA 2k14 Next Gen: Brooklyn Nets

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 continue to play NBA Live 14 and NBA 2K14 next gen, I’m naturally noticing aspects of the games that really impress me, as well as elements that I feel still need some work but certainly have a lot of potential. Needless to say, I’m also noticing a few things that I really hope both developers can avoid in the future.

I do actually want to start talking about some of the more positive aspects of both games in upcoming Friday Fives but this week, I’m focusing on that last category: the things I want EA Sports and 2K Sports to avoid. These include ongoing and re-emerging problems in basketball video games, as well as a few newer issues that I believe need to be nipped in the bud.

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.

If you’ve got any feedback on this week’s show or opinions about any of the topics that we discussed, we’d love to hear from you.

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!
