NLSC Podcast #298: So, What Did We Miss?

NLSC Podcast Logo

Episode #298 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! We’re back on the air after a longer than expected hiatus, and man, do we have some news to catch up on! Join guest co-host Dee4Three and I as we chat about NBA Live 20 being cancelled, the future of NBA Live, and the latest updates for NBA 2K20 and NBA 2K Playgrounds 2.

NBA 2K20 has been out for around nine weeks now, and has already received several patches. Although the updates have been controversial due to their size, quantity, and lack of detailed patch notes, we are pleased with some of the changes. This leads to a discussion about transparency, toxicity, and overall, our current impressions of the game. We also talk about the latest update for NBA 2K Playgrounds 2, and how the game has turned out. After that, we turn our attention to this week’s main topic: NBA Live 20’s cancellation. Was it the right call? How does it affect the brand’s image? What needs to happen with NBA Live 21? Is it time for another Wishlist? And finally, what happens to basketball gaming as we enter a new generation?

Tune in below!

What are your thoughts on NBA Live 20’s cancellation? How do you feel about the latest updates for NBA 2K20 and NBA 2K Playgrounds 2? Sound off in the comments section below, or join in the discussion here in the Forum! Additionally, feel free to hit us up with any feedback on the episode, as well as suggestions for topics that you’d like to hear us discuss in future episodes.

Hi there, Andrew! Just got some time to start to catch up on your pod a week ago (there are so many pods I’m subscribed to, so I have a problem to reduce the back-catalogue even at my 1,5x speed (tried 2x, I would be acceptable for some podcast but requires 110% concentration)). Listened to the episode, recognized how EAGERLY you talk to Dee4Three after a long hiatus) The co-host has a good mic, lively speech, and spent dozens years actively playing NBA games (as I got it by finishing a few new episodes in the feed today), so he is a perfect fit. (*´︶`*) Got to know him via NLVC a bit, where he has been on air lately too.
