New Poll: Playing basketball video games online and offline

We now have a new poll up which asks: “Do you mostly play basketball video games online or offline?” Cast your vote now and feel free to post your thoughts in the comments below!

Our previous poll asked “Do you consider yourself a sim or arcade player when it comes to basketball video games?” It appears as though most folks around these parts seek realism from their virtual basketball experience, with 67% of voters identifying themselves as sim players compared to only 8% who consider themselves arcade players. A further 25% saw themselves as being somewhere in between.

Top 5 Things EA’s NBA 13 Title Needs (Stick Skills)

Stick Skills have posted an article which examines the top five things that the next NBA sim title from EA Sports needs to have, from a deep Dynasty Mode to player individuality and a quality gameplay experience.

For my part, I certainly agree that those five items are among the essentials required for EA’s game to make a strong comeback this year. Have your say on the article in this thread in the NLSC Forum or in the comments below and be sure to check out our Wishlist and supplementary Wishlist materials, which we submitted to the new Dev Team at EA Tiburon last November.

Fifteenth Official NBA 2K12 Roster Update Released

2K Sports have released the third official roster update for NBA 2K12 in the past week and the fifteenth overall. To get the latest update automatically, simply ensure that your PC, Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 is connected to the Internet. Remember you will need to use the Reset Roster function under the Options menu to access the new rosters.

The latest update adds J.R. Smith to the New York Knicks’ roster, though his jersey number is incorrect (#5 instead of #8). If you’re playing the PC version and would like to download the update manually for whatever reason, I’ve uploaded a copy of the latest roster and online data folder here. Discuss the latest roster here in the NLSC Forum and Tweet feedback for future roster updates to the NBA 2K Insider @NBA2KInsider.

NBA 2K12 YouTube Videos of the Week

Another week gone and plenty of NBA 2K12 videos uploaded to YouTube to search through. This week in mixes we have another mix by shady00018, a look at Kobe playing in the 60s, 70s, and 80s, and a first time mix by forum user mg2prime. My daily uploads are still being uploaded consistently, although this week I only showcased the Retro and Hoop It Up mods again. And finally in direct uploads, I decided to focus on amazing plays rather than slick editing in 2K12’s Reel Maker, so check out those six videos as well.

As a reminder, you should check out the official NLSC YouTube channel for basketball video game trailers and other videos, and feel free to share your own mixes in this forum thread.
