NBA Jam: On Fire Edition Roster Update Video

With the release of the roster update for NBA Jam: On Fire Edition, I’ve put together a short video containing gameplay clips featuring players that have changed teams including Chris Paul, Richard Hamilton, Vince Carter and Lamar Odom. Watch it out below or check it out here over on the NLSC’s YouTube channel if you can’t see the embedded video.

It’s currently still unknown whether this will be the first and last roster update for the game, or whether there’ll be further updates that add this year’s rookies and any future trades that occur. As soon as any new information is made available, we’ll be sure to post it. Remember you can discuss the new roster update here in the NLSC Forum and if you haven’t yet picked up NBA Jam: On Fire Edition and are considering doing so, be sure to check out the demo and my review of the game here. You can also check out our post-release developer Q&A here.

NBA Jam: On Fire Edition Roster Updates Now Available

The long-awaited roster updates for NBA Jam: On Fire Edition are now finally available! Boot up the game and go to the Online Arena to automatically begin downloading the new rosters and the required assets.

Glancing at the rosters, it doesn’t appear as though any new players have been added, so no rookies apart from Ricky Rubio. However, existing players have been moved to their new teams with Chris Paul joining the Clippers, David West now playing for the Pacers and Lamar Odom is on the Mavericks to name just a few. This has left the rosters for some teams a little thin, such as the Cleveland Cavaliers who now only have two active players. Other teams however now find themselves with much deeper rosters, with the Dallas Mavericks now boasting six active players in addition to their legends and mascot.

It remains to be seen if any further roster updates will be released to add rookies and account for any future transactions. Post your thoughts on the roster updates in the comments below or in this thread.

JaoSming’s Predictions: Special Teams

When we buy EA or 2K’s NBA game we expect to play as the 30 current NBA teams. We expect that the rosters will be updated daily thanks to the precedent set by Living Rosters and DNA updates. And we will expect to play as the Brooklyn Nets for the ’13 games. In my opinion, the special teams in an NBA game can have a drastic effect on the game’s replayability, so that is what I will look at today.

JaoSming’s Predictions: Franchise Modes

Today I am going to lay out my predictions regarding the franchise modes in the basketball games coming out in the fall of 2012. Even though these modes are played for the longest periods of time by the most hardcore of basketball gamers, they rarely get any huge updates to make the mode more accessible. With that in mind, take a look at my predictions for Association and Dynasty modes for NBA 2K13 and EA NBA 13.

JaoSming’s Predictions: Career Modes

Writing about those online ideas I had yesterday really got me hyped for this year’s games. I really hope I am right with those predictions since the online stability and utilization in basketball games is severely lacking. Today I am looking at the core single player experience in each game, My Player and Become Legendary (or Be a Pro). Even though Become Legendary hasn’t successfully debuted yet, I am still expecting it to be featured in EA’s next NBA simulation game.

Eleventh Official NBA 2K12 Roster Update Released

The eleventh official roster update for NBA 2K12 is now available and can be obtained automatically as long as your PC, Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 is connected to the Internet. You can access the latest roster update by using the Reset Roster function under the Options menu; please note that you may have to reset the rosters a couple of times before the latest update shows up. As always, I recommend saving a copy of the new rosters once they’ve been loaded.

Glancing at the new update, it does not appear as though any new players have been added, however injury status has now been cleared for all players. This has presumably been done for the benefit of Online Association, which has also received the roster update and according to Ronnie, will be in line with future updates moving forward. Although no players are flagged as injured in the latest update, the roster does include updated rotations with players who are currently out of action appearing on the inactive list for their respective teams.

JaoSming’s Predictions: Online

One aspect that EA dominated 2K in year after year was NBA Live’s online speed and consistency. NBA 2K10 made a run at Live 10 with its My Player centric Crew mode, but simply being able to handle the amount of players online pushed Live 10’s multiplayer ahead. For the upcoming games EA will have to contend with Online Associations and new additions 2K will bring to the online table.

New NBA 2K12 Roster Update Out This Week

Ronnie has posted a Tweet regarding the next official roster update for NBA 2K12, which will apparently be available before the weekend is through.

There will be another roster update before the end of weekend & it will reflect in OA. OA rosters should be inline w/ regular going forward

In response to a question, he also suggested that the roster updates will be likely be coming out once a week from here on out, barring a big move. Remember that you can also follow the NBA 2K Insider here on Twitter and provide constructive feedback for future roster updates.

JaoSming’s Predictions: Gameplay

Graphics are important to me in a basketball video game, but what keeps me playing throughout the year is 100% gameplay. Today I am going to lay out my predictions for the gameplay changes I think each game will implement next year. Click Read More to take a look at my predictions.

JaoSming’s Predictions: Graphics

So far I have made some predictions on the cover athlete and presentation elements of NBA 2K13 and the return to simulation basketball gaming from EA. So far my predictions have been pretty safe, but graphics have always been a grey area for sports games with drastic improvements seemingly coming out of the blue. What do I think will happen this year? Click Read More and find out.
