NLSC Podcast – Episode #251

NLSC Podcast Logo

Episode #251 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Join Arcane and I as we follow up on some more snippets about NBA Live’s future, and discuss a couple of topics suggested by listeners. We also catch up on what we’ve been doing on the virtual hardwood, and talk about the 2018 NBA Finals.

On this week’s show…

  • A recent Polygon article has gone into a little more detail about the future of NBA Live, with additional quotes from Seann Graddy. We discuss what he might have meant when talking about the goal of appealing to a “new, younger demographic”.
  • What are our expectations in terms of demos for NBA Live 19 and NBA 2K19? Are they likely to be any different to recent demos and The Prelude DLC?
  • Is it likely that we’ll ever see a Free-to-Play basketball game, similar to Fortnite?
  • Our Week in Basketball Gaming included a couple of tough but satisfying victories in Ultimate Team, as well as success in LIVE Events. We also spent time with The One, checked out the community uploads in MyLEAGUE, and played with the All-Time Teams.
  • We wrap up Episode #251 of the NLSC Podcast with a quick recap of the Conference Finals, and our thoughts on the 2018 NBA Finals so far.

Speaking of a F2P basketball game, NBA Live Mobile delivers, even though like 2K and EA at heart, it’s very P2W targeted

Thank you for covering the topics I’ve suggested! It was a pleasure to listen to that during my weekend constitutional. \(•◡•)/
I’ve found myself playing more NBA Live Mobile than Live 18 recently – I was good on sticks with Live 16 I’ve enjoyed so much, what I cannot say about Live 18 – I’m struggling to win at a Pro difficulty I’ve used to set since Live 14 (and earlier). 🙁 This is my second season run with NBA Live Mobile – I’m having 2 squads (actual + legend) leveled at 79/80, but did’t pay EA yet. ¯\_(°ヮ°)_/¯
