The NBA 2K Debate: Which is the greatest team of all-time?

To further promote all the legends and classic teams in NBA 2K12, 2K Sports have launched the NBA 2K Debate which invites fans to pick one of the teams in the game, create a video explaining why you believe it’s the greatest team of all-time, upload it to YouTube and submit it via the NBA 2K Debate website. 2K themselves tip the debate off with none other than Michael Jordan.

Talk about the video and your pick in the debate in this thread. For anyone creating videos for the debate, feel free to share them as well.

NBA 2K12 Demo Notes, Tomorrow’s Insight

Ronnie 2K has Tweeted some information about the NBA 2K12 demo, as well as a couple of notes on the My Player content that will be coming tomorrow.

Before my 10 AM My Player post, a couple admin things. Online Insight will be post demo, demo will be like last year, 7-14 days prelaunch

Last My Player screen tomorrow at 8 AM PST. Insight at 12 PM PST.

So it seems we can expect the demo to come out from mid-September onwards, though probably no earlier than the 22nd. Tomorrow’s Developer Insight should give us a detailed rundown of what to expect in My Player, with the screenshot likely being another glimpse at Ronnie’s career to date.

NLSC Wiki Updates

Our Wiki has once again been hit hard by spambots recently, so I’ve put a few new measures in place that should hopefully prevent them from creating pages with spam links and inappropriate content. Additionally, we currently do not allow anonymous users to create pages and accounts must now be at least four days old for registered users to create pages. However, anonymous and registers users alike can edit a majority of the pages in the Wiki, with only a few select pages being locked to preserve resources and deter would-be vandals. As I’ve mentioned before, our aim is to create the ultimate resource for basketball video games, so we invite you to jump in and help us expand our articles! Be sure to check out the Help section if you’re new to Wiki formatting.

NBA 2K12 My Player Week – Day 1 – Mock Drafts

Day 1 of My Player Week continues with some info and a screenshot of the mock draft in NBA 2K12’s My Player mode. As you can see, some of the scout’s comments address the fallout of Ronnie’s pre-Draft interview, in which he noted he displayed a bit of an attitude.

Ronnie notes that the results of the mock draft are not absolute and that players may end up going higher or lower than projected, just as in real life. Join in the discussion here in the Forum or leave a comment below with your thoughts.

New Downloads Section Reminder; Upload your files!

I’d just like to remind everyone once again about our recently relaunched Downloads section, which is integrated with the NLSC Forum. In relaunching the new section, we have weeded out all broken links and can now offer everyone the ability to upload files up to 100 MB in size for both NBA Live and NBA 2K, while immediately submitting them for inclusion in the database. Our aim is to provide the community with free file hosting without fear of work getting lost after a period of inactivity, which has been an issue in the past with patchers using various free hosting services around the Internet.

We’re keen to help out the modding communities for NBA Live and NBA 2K with tutorials, resources and file hosting, so please feel free to begin using the facilities; all you need is an NLSC Forum account to start uploading! If you have any questions or run into any problems, please drop us a line. If you have a file larger than 100 MB, by all means shoot me an email or PM so that we can make alternative arrangements.

EA Sports NBA Initiatives: Wishlist, Survey & PC Petition

As Peter Moore mentioned earlier this week, it may take a while before EA’s future NBA sim games are able to compete with the NBA 2K series. However, here at the NLSC we’re looking to do our part by compiling a comprehensive Wishlist with detailed feedback for the new dev team at EA Tiburon. We’re also collecting additional feedback via our Wishlist Survey and attempting to stress the desire for a PC release with our PC Petition. We greatly appreciate everyone’s support with these initiatives so far, there’s still time to sign the Petition if you haven’t already and send in your feedback for the developers. Hopefully we can have a positive impact on the game!
