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.
