With news on NBA Live 13 and NBA 2K13 likely right around the corner, speculating on the possible cover players for each game has been a popular topic in the NLSC Forum. Does the choice of cover player influence your decision to buy a game, though? Cast your vote in our new poll!
Our previous poll asked “Do you mostly play basketball video games online or offline?” It seems an overwhelming number of gamers in the community still favour offline modes such as Dynasty, Association and My Player, as “Mostly offline” garnered 83% of the vote. In contrast, just 9% indicated that they mostly play basketball video games online, while a final 8% spend an equal amount of time playing online and offline modes.
The SportsGaming blog is starting an initiative to encourage 2K Sports to adopt a similar approach to EA’s Game Changers and the NBA Live Advisory Council, with a view to improving 2K’s NBA sim games beginning with NBA 2K13. Essentially, it is a grass roots movement to open a dialogue with the NBA 2K development team and provide them with quality feedback, similar to what we’ve been able to do in the past with EA Sports and our NBA Live Wishlists.

Not many details on NBA 2K13 have been revealed or hinted at as yet aside from community manager Ronnie 2K looking to recruit various celebrities for an as yet unnamed NBA 2K related initiative, as well as Justin Bieber’s inclusion in the game. As with NBA Live 13, we probably won’t be getting a whole lot of information until E3 next month.
However, yesterday Ronnie Tweeted an interesting tidbit, revealing that Dion Waiters and Austin Rivers (son of former NBA player and current Celtics head coach Doc Rivers) have provided motion capture for NBA 2K13.

With NBA 2K13 news likely to start coming out in the near future and plenty of fun to be had speculating on the game and discussing what we’d like to see, we’ve gone ahead and added an NBA 2K13 section to the NLSC Forum. Join in the discussion today!
Another official roster update for NBA 2K12 has gone live today, with rosters accurate as of May 9th 2012. The update will come through automatically as long as your PC, Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 is connected to the Internet and your game is up to date with the official patch. The new rosters can then be accessed by using the Reset Roster function under the Options menu.
PC users who would like to update their game manually can download this pack, which I’ve updated with the latest roster and online data files. As previously noted by the NBA 2K Insider, the Playoff roster updates do not contain any ratings adjustments, just updated rotations to reflect the latest injuries and lineups.
The Dynasty Five Fantasy League has restarted using the latest NLSC rosters and is currently looking for enthusiastic GMs to sign up. The new season will begin shortly, after all vacant teams have been claimed.
If you’re interested in joining the league, check out this section to see a list of the available teams and register to claim one before somebody else does. You can also check out a listing of Dynasty Five’s rules and procedures here.
EA Sports have posted a behind the scenes video of Kyrie Irving and Ricky Rubio’s visits to the EA Tiburon studios during the 2012 All-Star Weekend in Orlando, where they met with the NBA Live 13 development team and had some hands-on time with the game. While the video doesn’t contain any gameplay footage, you can catch a quick glimpse of one of the developers working on Kyrie Irving’s cyberface.
Watch it below or catch it here on the NLSC YouTube channel if you can’t see the embedded video. Feel free to add your thoughts in the comments below and join in the discussion here in the NLSC Forum.
A new official roster update for NBA 2K12 has gone live this weekend after all, containing rosters accurate as of May 5th 2012. As always, you should receive the update automatically as long as your PC, Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3 is connected to the Internet and your game is up to date with the official patch, however you must use the Reset Roster function under the Options menu to load the new rosters after the game starts up. PC users who would like to update their game manually may use this pack, which includes the latest roster and online data files.
As per the NBA 2K Insider, roster updates during the Playoffs will only include changes to lineups, so it seems there will be no more adjustments to player ratings this season. Anyone unsatisfied with any player ratings will have to make changes themselves or download an unofficial roster update.
Check out the latest file additions for NBA Live 08, which include a some great jersey updates, a custom sleeve for Jason Collins and a couple of portrait packs.
It doesn’t appear as though a new official roster update for NBA 2K12 has gone live as yet today, however earlier in the week a few new shoes came through via the online updates. As such, I’ve updated the offline update pack for PC users with a copy of the most recent roster and online data files, accurate as of May 1st. If a new roster does come out this weekend, I’ll be sure to update the pack again as soon as possible.
Remember that you can receive the updates automatically on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 as long as you are connected to the Internet and your game is up to date with the latest official patch.
With the unveiling of the new Brooklyn Nets logos, I’ve decided to get a jump on updates for next season. While these won’t be included in the next set of roster patches that I anticipate releasing early next week, seeing as how those will still be 2012 season updates, I’m releasing the new Nets logos separately for anyone who’d like to update their game early.
Make sure that you download the correct pack for the game you’re playing.
