Examiner.com Interview with NBA Live 16 Executive Producer Sean O’Brien

Examiner.com recently conducted an interview with NBA Live 16 Executive Producer, Sean O’Brien. It doesn’t provide much in the way of new information about this year’s game, but it does offer some insights into the creative process, and the development team’s aims with NBA Live 16.

Notably, Sean speaks highly of the feedback that the development team receives from basketball gamers, from members of the EA GameChangers program to one on one feedback with the NBA Live community. He once again stresses that NBA Live 16 is being made “for (their) fans”.

Sean also discusses LIVE Pro-Am, describing an aim of not only making a game that is a solid basketball simulation, but also a social and competitive online experience. He also touts the RPG-style elements in LIVE Pro-Am, given its integration with Rising Star.

NLSC Podcast – Episode #125

NLSC Podcast Logo

We’re back…again! And with any luck, there won’t be any further interruptions for some time. Tune in to Episode #125 of the NLSC Podcast, where Arcane and I discuss the latest NBA Live 16 and NBA 2K16 news and previews, a couple of recent events in the NBA, and my trip to the EA Tiburon studio in Orlando back in July.

On this week’s show…

  • Andrew tips off the show with some thanks for the key folks who got him to Orlando to take part in the NBA Live 16 community event back in July. Lots of impressions and information coming, once clearance is granted!
  • One aspect of NBA Live 16 that can be discussed at this time is the recently announced LIVE Pro-Am. Andrew follows up on his hands-on impressions with further thoughts, while Arcane has some hands-off impressions.
  • A few screenshots and quick video clips have also been released, in addition to the trailer for LIVE Pro-Am. We talk about how well NBA Live 16 is shaping up, visually speaking.
  • On a less positive note, we react to the absence of custom rosters and roster editing in NBA Live 16. Might it be patched in?
  • 2K has also announced Pro-Am for NBA 2K16. We give our thoughts on 2K’s take on the concept, and the unfortunate situation of both modes having the same name.
  • We’ve also had a glimpse of NBA 2K16 by way of some video clips on social media, screenshots, and the digital shorts narrated by Spike Lee.
  • What do we make of the criticism that NBA 2K16’s graphics haven’t shown enough improvement?
  • We discuss the latest retro teams to be announced for NBA 2K16, and make a couple of predictions as to which teams might be announced next.
  • Speaking of retro basketball, Andrew has picked up a few more old school games. This leads to a comparison of collections.
  • This week’s NBA discussion includes a few more thoughts on the new jersey designs, Tristan Thompson’s continued free agency, and some very bad news for Dante Exum.
  • We wrap up Episode #125 of the NLSC Podcast with a bold prediction from Charles Barkley.

More Impressions of LIVE Pro-Am in NBA Live 16; Q&A Reminders

TicoisTocory, who also attended the NBA Live 16 community event that I was at back in July, has posted some of his impressions of LIVE Pro-Am in this year’s game. Tocory will have even more impressions coming soon, including a breakdown of all the courts in Summer Circuit and LIVE Run. Check it out below, or catch it here on YouTube if you can’t see the embedded video.

For those who may have missed it, I’ve posted my hands-on impressions of LIVE Pro-Am in NBA Live 16 here. If you have any follow up questions about Summer Circuit or LIVE Run, feel free to hit me up in the comments here on the main page, or in this thread in the NBA Live 16 section of the Forum.

We’re also still lining up some NBA Live 16 developer interviews, and we’d like to give everyone the opportunity to submit some questions of their own. If you haven’t already hit us up with some questions, be sure to post them in this thread ASAP. We’ll be looking to get some insight into the situation with the lack of custom rosters, clarification on some of the finer details of NBA Live 16, and much more, so be on the lookout for those interviews in the not too distant future!

More LIVE Pro-Am Impressions, Other NBA Live 16 News & Notes

Corey Andress and Marc Price, who I had the pleasure of meeting at the NBA Live 16 community event back in July, have posted a new episode of the Post-Game Podcast, in which they give their impressions of LIVE Pro-Am. Corey and Marc detail the specific features of Summer Circuit and LIVE Run, and answer some Twitter questions from basketball gamers. They also make comparisons between Pro-Am in NBA Live 16 and NBA 2K16, discuss the similar name, and much more. It’s definitely worth a listen, so check it out!

Speaking of the Post-Game Podcast, while the three of us were in Orlando for the NBA Live 16 event, the guys had me on the show to discuss how I got into basketball video games, how I came to run the NLSC, and some other fun topics. You can listen to that episode here.

Moving on to some other news and notes, while we have had some very good news to report about NBA Live 16 lately, we do have a disappointing tidbit to share today. EA has publicly confirmed via the official NBA Live Facebook page that NBA Live 16 will not feature custom rosters or roster editing, but they are working on it.

While I was at the event, I made sure to stress the importance of custom rosters and roster editing, and the developers were definitely receptive to the feedback. Hopefully, we’ll be able to get some more details on the situation in our upcoming developer interviews, but that is the situation as it stands today.

Finally, in case you missed it, I was given the green light to post my hands-on impressions of LIVE Pro-Am, LIVE Run, and Summer Circuit in NBA Live 16, which you can check out here. Feel free to hit me up with any questions in the comments or in this thread in the Forum, and look out for more of my NBA Live 16 impressions once I’m able to talk about other aspects of the game!

NBA Live 16 Pro-Am: Hands-On Impressions

I’ve been waiting until I got the green light to make “official” mention it, but last month, I had the opportunity to visit the EA Tiburon studio to attend an NBA Live 16 community event. During this event, I got to spend a lot of time playing NBA Live 16, and give feedback directly to the development team. In turn, the team was very receptive of the feedback that I and the other attendees had to offer, and it felt like a very productive and constructive few days.

Needless to say, I do have a lot of impressions to share about the game – and there’s certainly good news! – but there’s a lot of stuff I haven’t been given the all-clear to discuss just yet. However, with the announcement of LIVE Pro-Am, featuring the Summer Circuit and LIVE Run, I have been given clearance to give you my thoughts on those modes, and take some questions from the community as well. Some questions I may have to run by my contacts at EA before I answer them, just to ensure that I’m not breaking the NDA I signed, but I’ll do my best to get you the info you’re after.

Without any further ado, let’s take a look at LIVE Pro-Am in NBA Live 16!

Pro-Am Announced for NBA Live 16, Featuring LIVE Run & Summer Circuit

NBA Live 16: LIVE Pro-Am

EA Sports has officially announced the new online mode in NBA Live 16: LIVE Pro-Am. The mode is comprised of LIVE Run, a traditional multiplayer online team play mode, and Summer Circuit, an online mode that pits up to five human users against a squad of CPU opponents.

The announcement also confirms a demo of NBA Live 16, which will offer the ability for gamers to try out Summer Circuit and LIVE Run, and start levelling up their player. While the demo caps players at 80 overall, users will be able to carry their progress over into the full version. The demo, which will also include six playable teams, support for GameFace HD, and the Learn LIVE tutorials, will be available on September 15th. For those who are unaware, the full version drops on September 29th.

In addition to announcing Pro-Am, some new NBA Live 16 deep-dive developer blogs have also been posted, providing more information on Summer Circuit and LIVE Run. Both modes provide a pick-up style atmosphere featuring your Rising Star player, with games to 21 points, and streetball rules. Depending on how you perform, you’ll earn Skill Points to upgrade ratings, along with Reward Points which can be spent on gear, accessories, and shoes. The games take place in famous venues across the USA and Canada, from the HoopDome in Toronto to Rucker Parker in New York.

Another developer blog details the type of customisation that will be available in Pro-Am, as well as the player creation process. It also describes the player progression system and the GameFaceHD app, which will be available on September 8th.

Finally, a trailer for Pro-Am has been released. Check it out below, or catch it here on YouTube if you can’t see the embedded video.

Having had hands-on time with NBA Live 16 back in July, I’ll be posting some impressions of the Summer Circuit and LIVE Run very soon, as well as answering some questions about the modes. In the meantime, be sure to check out all the blogs on the official website for the full scoop!

Reveal of New Online Mode in NBA Live 16 Coming Tomorrow

The new online mode in NBA Live 16 is set to be revealed tomorrow. Posts by the official NBA Live Facebook and Twitter accounts confirm that the announcement is coming, and tease that the community will finally learn what the #RiseTogether hashtag is all about.

The announcement of the new online mode was previously expected to come during Gamescom 2015, but NBA Live 16 was conspicuously absent from EA’s demonstration at the event. Nevertheless, details on the mode will finally be coming our way tomorrow.

I’m also excited to mention that we’ll be able to provide a little extra coverage of the new mode here at the NLSC, in the form of some hands-on impressions and answering a few questions about the mode. So, stay tuned for that, and in the meantime, feel free to speculate in the comments section, as well as join in the discussion in our NBA Live 16 Forum!

NBA Live 16 Screenshots Featuring Raptors’ New Jerseys

Following the reveal of the Toronto Raptors’ new jerseys with the first official NBA 2K16 screenshots, EA Sports has now posted some NBA Live 16 screenshots spotlighting the team’s newly unveiled uniforms.

The first screenshot features DeMar DeRozan sporting the new black and gold alternate jersey, while the second spotlights all four jerseys that the Raptors will debut this season, as worn by DeRozan, Kyle Lowry, DeMarre Carroll, and Terrence Ross. You can check them both out below, as well as in our NBA Live 16 screenshots gallery.

In other NBA Live 16 news, the game was not featured during EA Sports’ presentation at Gamescom yestersday, despite previous reports that the new online mode would be announced during the event. Of course, the event is not yet over, so those details could very well still be forthcoming.
