NBA 2K14

Nice Kicks hint at involvement with NBA 2K14

Nice Kicks, a Texas-based shoe store and online source of sneaker news, release dates and history, posted a Tweet mentioning a meeting with 2K Sports and encouraging fans to prepare for “something major” in NBA 2K14, with 2K’s Social Media Coordinator Chris “LD2k” Manning subsequently re-Tweeting them.

Stating the obvious, their involvement with NBA 2K14 will have something to do with shoes, perhaps in the form of in-game reviews or the ability to source and purchase shoes that appear in the game. We probably won’t find out what’s going on for a little while yet as the preview season is still a few months away, but feel free to speculate on what a partnership between Nice Kicks and 2K Sports might entail in the comments below, as well as take the discussion to the Forum.

The Friday Five: 5 Ways We Give Bad Feedback

Welcome to this week’s edition of The Friday Five! For those of you who haven’t read any of my previous Friday Five columns, this is a relatively new feature where I discuss a range of topics related to basketball video games, the real NBA and other subjects that are relevant to our community, either in list or Top 5 countdown format.

To say that the Internet has had a major impact on video gaming is a grand understatement. One of the ways it has changed gaming is its ability to put developers in direct contact with their customers, giving gamers the opportunity to provide feedback that shapes future releases and aids in post-release support. We basketball gamers have been doing that for some time now, but we don’t always make the best use of the opportunity. These are the things we should avoid doing, the five ways we give bad feedback to basketball video game developers.

The Friday Five: 5 Improvements Needed for MyCAREER

Welcome to this week’s edition of The Friday Five! For the uninitiated, this is a new weekly feature appearing every Friday, discussing five items of interest in list/countdown format. Topics you can expect to see covered include issues related to basketball video games, goings on in the real NBA and other subjects of interest to our community.

This week, I’m counting down the five improvements that I believe are needed in NBA 2K’s MyCAREER mode. Although I’m traditionally more of a Dynasty and Association enthusiast, over the past couple of years I’ve been drawn in by My Player/MyCAREER and enjoyed it immensely. However, there are a couple of bothersome issues that detract from the experience, so these are the things that I’d most like to see addressed for MyCAREER in NBA 2K14 and beyond.

The Friday Five: 5 Things Basketball Video Games Should Avoid

Welcome to The Friday Five, a new weekly feature here at the NLSC! As the name suggests, this is a feature that will be appearing on Fridays, discussing five items in list/countdown format. Topics will naturally cover issues related to basketball video games, as well as the real NBA and other subjects that are relevant to our community.

For this first edition of The Friday Five, I’m counting down the five things I believe that basketball video games should look to avoid in future releases. Please note that I’m focusing on specific gameplay-related items that I feel are still an issue even in the best basketball games, rather than making general statements such as “sucking”, “being cancelled” or anything else that obviously goes without saying.
