File Additions for NBA Live 08

NBA Live 08 Cover Art

Here are the latest file additions for NBA Live 08, which include player and team updates for the 2012/2013 season and a new version of Cpt(K)’s Dynasty Rosters. The player and team updates will also be included in the upcoming rosters for NBA Live 2005 through NBA Live 08, though if you’ve been downloading them as they’ve been released and have the previous version of the rosters installed, you may be able to save yourself some time and download the “roster only” version when it’s available. In any case, enjoy the latest additions and stay tuned for the rosters, coming as soon as I can possibly get them done.

January 21st Official Roster Update for NBA 2K13; BHM Shoes

2K Sports pushed through a new official roster update for NBA 2K13 yesterday, containing updated starters for the East and West All-Stars and Black History Month colourways for the Kobe 8, LeBron X and KD V shoes. It does not appear to include any ratings or injury status updates, only the updated All-Star teams and shoe assignments for Kobe Bryant, LeBron James and Kevin Durant.

As always, the updates will come through automatically as long as your PC, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 or Wii U is connected to the Internet. If you’re playing on PC and would like to manually update your game instead, you can pick up our manual update pack here.

NLSC Podcast – Episode #14

The fourteenth episode of the NLSC Podcast is now online for your listening enjoyment! Leftos, Ben and I are your hosts once again and despite it being a slow news week, we find a few things to talk about including the selections of the All-Star starters, what we’ve been watching recently and a few other odds and ends. If you’re after a quick synopsis:

  • In honour of the Manti Te’o saga, we welcome everyone and their fake girlfriends to this week’s show!
  • It’s been a slow news week, but we give a quick rundown of some stories of note.
  • Leftos has a message for Lance Armstrong.
  • The NBA All-Star starters have been announced. True to form, I momentarily forget who was voted in on the East.
  • We talk a little about fan voting, All-Star games in years gone by and the Rising Stars Challenge.
  • Which reserves do we think should be selected by the coaches for the All-Star game?
  • Some gaming rumours are briefly discussed.
  • Which TV shows have we all been enjoying (or at least watching) as of late?

This week’s episode is actually shorter than recent podcasts as we’ve been taking some feedback on board and are looking to put out a tighter show with a more compressed news segment and fewer “monologues”. We hope you enjoy the latest episode, if you have any constructive feedback about the format and current approach we’re taking, or any thoughts on what we discussed in this week’s show, please feel free to have your say in the comments below or here in the Forum.

Ultimate Base Roster V38 for NBA 2K12 PC Released

HAWK23 has released another new version of one of the most successful mods we’ve ever seen, the Ultimate Base Roster for NBA 2K12 PC. The new update, V38, includes a couple of new retro seasons, more fixes and tweaks, some new art updates including faces and portraits and current season rosters accurate as of January 20th, 2013. A full list of the latest release’s key features is as follows:

  • Added the 2011-2012 Season Mod and 1981-1982 Season Mod
  • Includes a “UBRV38 Association.ros” roster file which strips out all of the retro teams for those of you who just want the updated roster with flawless Season/Franchise mode. Don’t worry the normal Ultimate Base Roster V38 with all the retros is still there too.
  • All players on current teams have real portraits
  • Added 30+ new and year-specific cyberfaces for players throughout the Season Mods
  • Other minor tweaks made (all players now wear white socks through the 94-95 seasons)
  • Tweaked ALL Season Mods for updates. We now have 25 full season mods, the ABA mod, the All-Legends mod, the 60s and 70s Ultimate Basketball mods, and the Ultimate Base Roster (UBR) all compatible without affecting regular NBA2K12 files and they all work in season/association.
  • Current NBA Teams Rosters/Rotations up to date as of Sunday, January 20th, 2013.

The Friday Five: 5 Arguments in Defense of Fan Voting

Welcome to another edition of The Friday Five! This is a new feature that comes your way every Friday, discussing five items of interest in list or countdown format, with topics covering basketball video games, the real NBA and other subjects that are relevant to our community.

With the NBA’s announcement of the starters for the 2013 NBA All-Star Game in Houston, reactions to the selections naturally raise questions about the concept of fan voting. Some fans don’t see a problem with it, while others don’t think it’s the right approach at all. For my part, I’m still in favour of fans being able to select the starting lineups and as such, here are five arguments in defense of fan voting for the All-Star Game.
