This is Dumb Mondays, tipping off the workweek with silly facts, opinions, or predictions that you may or may not find interesting. This was originally JaoSming’s feature, but since he’s now at Visual Concepts and hard at work on 2KTV, I’ll be writing a few articles in his place. A new Monday feature may also be coming soon, so stay tuned!
Did you know? The PC versions of NBA Live 2003, NBA Live 2004, and a few other games in the series featured a developer console that was disabled by default. It’s true; with a quick modification of a configuration file, the console can be re-enabled and used to mess around with the game. It has limited uses compared to, say, a first person shooter, and to that end, some people might be inclined to call the whole thing dumb. But hey, this is Dumb Mondays, so let’s have some fun!
HAWK23 and company have released V25 of the Ultimate Base Roster for NBA 2K14 PC, containing up to date 2014/2015 season rosters and other enhancements. An overview of the key features of the latest release is as follows:
An article discussing some of the key changes in the December 6th roster update for NBA Live 15 has been posted over on the game’s official website. Kobe Bryant is in the spotlight this week, as the Black Mamba has been bumped up to a 92 overall, tying him with James Harden as the top rated shooting guard in the game.
Once again, you can check out a full overview of all the changes that have been made in this Excel file, from ratings changes to accessory updates. If you’ve got any feedback on the NBA Live 15 rosters that you’d like to send in to the development team, producer Fernando Rodriguez is keeping tabs on this thread in the NLSC Forum, so be sure to post any suggestions or corrections there!
Dc311 has uploaded a couple more 2014/2015 Headshot Packs, this time featuring players who are currently free agents. Check them out at the links below, and don’t forget that you can find other patching resources here in our Downloads section.
We certainly love our basketball games here at the NLSC, so when it comes to modes like Dynasty, Association, and MyCAREER, some of us like to share the experience with our fellow gamers. In the Basketball Video Game Stories section of the NLSC Forum, several gamers maintain story threads chronicling their adventures and achievements in the virtual NBA. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be running a series of interviews with some of our most prominent storytellers, to get an insight into their experiences and discover why they enjoy maintaining story threads.
This time, I’m talking to myself…well, not really, but as someone who’s maintained a few story threads over the years, I thought that I’d offer my own answers to the questions that I’ve been posing to other story thread enthusiasts. I hope that you enjoy the insight into my experiences creating story threads for some of my favourite basketball video games!
With the progress currently being made on tools for NBA 2K15, a wave of new mods hopefully isn’t too far away. In the meantime, I’ve packaged up the game manuals from the official site and uploaded them to our Downloads section for easy access and safekeeping. Pick them up at the links below!
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.
From the moment that basketball video games began getting deeper and more sophisticated, properly representing a player’s abilities, skill level, and playing style through their ratings and other attributes became an important area of focus. Both EA and 2K invest a lot of time and effort – and in the case of EA’s partnership with Synergy Sports, money – in making sure that their official updates are detailed, and that player ratings are kept up to date and accurate throughout the entire league.
In years gone by however, and especially before regular official roster updates became a thing, it wasn’t uncommon to see some unusual ratings in the default rosters. Even games like NBA Jam, with its simplified and boosted player ratings, produced some noteworthy oddities. So, for this week’s Friday Five, I’m taking a look at some of the weirdest player ratings that I can recall in various basketball video games.
This week’s Spotlight Players in NBA Live 15’s LIVE Ultimate Team are Blake Griffin and Jimmy Butler. Zach LaVine and Miles Plumlee have also been singled out as Future Stars.
BLAKE GRIFFIN, LOS ANGELES CLIPPERS F
Griffin led the Clippers to four straight wins last week to close out an impressive 6-1 roadtrip. His best performance came in Charlotte, where he put up a near triple-double with 22 points, 16 rebounds, and nine assists.
JIMMY BUTLER, CHICAGO BULLS F
Butler continued his breakout season with four straight games of 20+ points, including a career-high 32 at Denver. He’s averaging 22 PPG, 5.9 RPG, and 3.4 APG on the year.
ZACH LAVINE, MINNESOTA TIMBERWOLVES G
The athletic LaVine had the best game of his young career last friday in Los Angeles, scoring 28 points and dishing out five assists in a one-point win over the Lakers.
MILES PLUMLEE, PHOENIX SUNS C
Plumlee continues to impress in Jeff Hornacek’s uptempo, small-ball system. He scored 12 points and grabbed five rebounds in a close loss to the Magic on Sunday, November 30.
Eight-item Signature Packs are also currently available, containing a Signature Edition player, one Gold or better player, and one Silver player. Feel free to discuss the latest Ultimate Team content and your experiences with the mode here in the NBA Live 15 section of the Forum!
Hall of Famer Chris Mullin and former All-Star Anfernee “Penny” Hardaway will be the next two NBA Legends to be made available in NBA Live 15’s LIVE Ultimate Team. Both players will be available in random packs beginning this weekend, and in the meantime, you can take them both on in a new Solo Challenge.
ANFERNEE “PENNY” HARDAWAY
Penny was one of the NBA’s brightest young stars before injuries impacted the prime of his career. He was a four-time All-Star that helped lead the Magic to their first NBA Finals appearance in 1994-95.
One of the game’s all-time great shooters, Mullin made five All-Star teams while averaging more than 18 PPG over his career. He helped form Golden State’s uptempo “Run TMC” trio with fellow LUT Legends Tim Hardaway and Mitch Richmond.
