NBA 2K12 Official Roster & Online Data Pack Updated

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.

Brooklyn Nets 2012/2013 Logos Released (NBA Live 2005-08)

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.

Kotaku: NBA Live Moves with a Purpose to Make You a Better Baller

Kotaku’s Owen Good has posted another piece on NBA Live 13, “NBA Live Moves with a Purpose to Make You a Better Baller”. It begins by talking about the basketball pedigree of several people involved with the game and reflects on the way many people play basketball video games, as observed by several key members of the Dev Team.

The main focus of the article however is the aim of improving teammate AI in NBA Live 13, encouraging the player to pay attention to the way their teammates are moving without the ball. It includes quotes from executive producer Nick Wlodyka, who explains the “Move With a Purpose” mantra the team has adopted and notes that they have “invested significantly in (the) off-the-ball AI” in this year’s game, shedding some light on one of their goals with gameplay in NBA Live 13.
