NLSC Podcast #462: NBA Live 09 PS2 & Algorithm Blues

NLSC Podcast Logo

From courtside of the virtual hardwood, it’s Episode #462 of the NLSC Podcast!

As promised on last week’s show, this week we’re discussing some of the problems with the influencer movement, as well as our frustrations with algorithms. Before we get into that though, we’re taking a deep dive into NBA Live 09 for PlayStation 2. For all its faults, this rather overlooked game (at least in our community) did have some strong points! We also recap our recent sessions with NBA 2K Playgrounds 2 and NBA 2K19, and provide some updates on a couple of our modding projects for NBA 2K. In this week’s mailbag, we asked the community how many hours per week they spend on the virtual hardwood; or, for that matter, modding games.

To get involved with the mailbag or to provide any feedback on the show, hit us up in the comments, reach out on social media, or post here in the NLSC Forum!

As always, thanks for tuning in, and go get buckets!

NLSC Podcast #461: NBA 2K24 Gameplay Wishlist

From courtside of the virtual hardwood, it’s Episode #461 of the NLSC Podcast!

Wishlist season is upon us once again, so we’re talking about the gameplay improvements that both we and the community want to see in NBA 2K24. It would appear that many of us are on the same page as far as what we want to see this year! Meanwhile, a Parsec session saw us resume our Road Trip in NBA Jam: On Fire Edition, and have some fun with Hoops for NES. A recent YouTube comment regarding NBA Live 99 also inspires us to discuss the importance of context when evaluating graphics in classic basketball video games. In this week’s mailbag, we’re quizzing the community on the top three-point shooters in NBA Live 06.

NLSC Podcast #460: The Community Compares NBA 2K14 & NBA 2K23

NLSC Podcast Logo

From courtside of the virtual hardwood, it’s Episode #460 of the NLSC Podcast!

Comparisons of NBA 2K14 and NBA 2K23 have been gaining traction on social media as of late. We discuss the observations that the community has been making,  and why more people are (rightfully) beginning to look back on NBA 2K14 so fondly. Speaking of NBA 2K23, we share our thoughts on MyNBA Eras rosters being available in Play Now once again, albeit with limitations. We also catch up on some recent modding developments, including a forthcoming Fantasy Draft roster for NBA 2K19, Murat’s MyNBA Eras project for NBA Live 06, and new resources for NBA 2K16. After circling back to a couple of responses to last week’s mailbag that came in after we ‘d finished recording, we quiz the community on the top-rated classic players in NBA 2K11.

NBA 2K23 MyTEAM Southwest Domination Highlights

NBA 2K23 MyTEAM Southwest Domination Highlights

As you may have seen in recent posts, and heard discussed on the NLSC Podcast, Dee4Three is working his way through Domination in NBA 2K23 MyTEAM. Most recently, he’s been taking on the teams of the Southwest Division, and it’s been another triumphant conquest!

To that end, Dee has put together a highlight reel of his best plays against the Southwest teams. There are fifteen games worth of highlights, ranging from deadeye shooting and crafty post moves to the jaw-dropping jams and poster dunks that we love to see on the virtual hardwood. Sporting Phoenix Suns branding for this portion of NBA 2K23 MyTEAM Domination, Dee’s squad features the likes of Michael Jordan, Dee Brown, Clyde Drexler, Larry Bird, Jason Williams, Kobe Bryant, Julius Erving, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Damian Lillard, Magic Johnson, Stephen Curry, Shaquille O’Neal, Vince Carter, and Darryl Dawkins, among other stars and personal favourites. Check out all of the spectacular moments below!

There’ll be plenty more basketball gaming highlights coming your way throughout 2023 from a variety of titles both recent and classic, so be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel! As always, feel free to hit us up with any suggestions of games that you’d like to see us play, whether solo or over Parsec.

NBA 2K23 MyTEAM & NBA 2K14 MyCAREER Videos

NBA 2K23 MyTEAM & NBA 2K14 MyCAREER Videos

Even as the year draws to a close, we’re eagerly sharing our basketball gaming highlights over on the NLSC YouTube channel! Our latest videos feature highlights from NBA 2K23 MyTEAM Domination, and NBA 2K14 MyCAREER.

First up, Dee continues his journey through Domination in NBA 2K23 MyTEAM with the Dallas Mavericks challenges. Once again, his squad is sporting Phoenix Suns branding as he makes his way through the Southwest Division teams, and now includes several of his all-time favourite players. Dee plays through all three difficulty levels, resulting in a ton of high-flying highlights along the way.

Next up is a highlight reel from the fourth quarter of a 2018 season game from my NBA 2K14 MyCAREER. I’m trailing the Toronto Raptors 91-86 as the quarter begins, and am challenged by coach Johnny Davis to lead the Philadelphia 76ers to victory. I’ll be sharing more of my NBA 2K14 MyCAREER highlights on our channel moving forward, and this fourth quarter run in a comeback win seemed like an appropriate place to start.

A big thanks to everyone who has been supporting our video content throughout the year! As I’ve mentioned before, Dee has been spearheading an effort to produce regular videos, and now that I have a new Elgato, I’m eager to create more of that content as well. Check out both videos below, and be sure to subscribe to the NLSC YouTube channel for more basketball gaming fun!

NBA 2K23 MyTEAM, NBA Inside Drive 2004, & NBA 2K13 Videos

NBA 2K23 MyTEAM, NBA Inside Drive 2004, & NBA 2K13 Videos

As I’ve mentioned, Dee4Three has been spearheading an effort to create more content for our YouTube channel! In addition to co-hosting the NLSC Podcast with me, Dee has also been uploading gameplay videos from an assortment of titles. These range from classics and forgotten releases to his progress through NBA 2K23 MyTEAM Domination.

Dee’s reels and mixes are always great, and you’ll definitely want to check out his recent uploads. For a start, he’s spotlighting NBA Inside Drive 2004; the last game in the NBA Inside Drive series, and an underrated release in general. See what it’s all about with a clash between the Houston Rockets and Memphis Grizzlies!

Next up is a game between the Chicago Bulls and New York Knicks in NBA 2K13, using the 1992 season mod from U R Basketball. As I noted in Episode #457 of the NLSC Podcast, Dee did an incredible job portraying Michael Jordan on the virtual hardwood, with authentic highlights leading up to a dramatic finish.

Finally, Dee’s most recent upload is another highlight reel from his journey through Domination in NBA 2K23 MyTEAM. This time he’s taking on the Memphis Grizzlies challenges, with a squad that includes some fantastic pickups. Check out all of Dee’s latest videos below, and be sure to subscribe to the NLSC YouTube channel for more basketball gaming content!

NLSC Podcast #457: Back To School With College Hoops 2K7

NLSC Podcast Logo

From courtside of the virtual hardwood, it’s Episode #457 of the NLSC Podcast!

Our game of choice for a Parsec session this week was College Hoops 2K7, a release that’s often overshadowed by its very popular sequel. We discuss some of the key points of the game, from the quality of its animations, authenticity, and presentation, to experimental motion controls and minor quibbles. It’s also provided us with a new virtual hardwood legend: Jevon Bro! Referring back to a recent Reddit post and Wayback Wednesday retrospective, we reflect on how well NBA 2K13 holds up, and the recency bias that is pushing it towards becoming underrated. We also recall some exciting pickups in MyTEAM, and note how NBA 2K23 PC has changed for the worse following the most recent patch.

NLSC Podcast #456: The Truth About Sim Basketball

NLSC Podcast Logo

From courtside of the virtual hardwood, it’s Episode #456 of the NLSC Podcast!

A recent Tweet from a fellow “old head” perfectly summed up why it’s a ridiculous insult for anyone who’s been around the block and knows their stuff. It’s quite timely too, as this week we’re reflecting on what simulation basketball actually means in 2022. We discuss how changes in the real NBA have affected the virtual hardwood in terms of what gamers want and what they’re emulating, and compare it to our more traditional notion of sim hoops. Our deep dive encompasses everything from mindless playcalling to the selfishness and meta gaming that dominates the online scene. In this week’s mailbag, we’re quizzing the community on the top six current and classic players in NBA 2K17.
