NBA 2K12 Demo Notes, Tomorrow’s Insight

Ronnie 2K has Tweeted some information about the NBA 2K12 demo, as well as a couple of notes on the My Player content that will be coming tomorrow.

Before my 10 AM My Player post, a couple admin things. Online Insight will be post demo, demo will be like last year, 7-14 days prelaunch

Last My Player screen tomorrow at 8 AM PST. Insight at 12 PM PST.

So it seems we can expect the demo to come out from mid-September onwards, though probably no earlier than the 22nd. Tomorrow’s Developer Insight should give us a detailed rundown of what to expect in My Player, with the screenshot likely being another glimpse at Ronnie’s career to date.

NBA 2K12 My Player Screens from Today

Cool stuff indeed.  Check out all the My Player Week updates and discuss in the Forum, and be sure to check this space tomorrow when the My Player Insight is posted.

NBA 2K12 Preview: Any NBA Player in Creating a Legend Mode

Possibly recognizing the popularity of custom My Player saves that let you play as NBA players, USA Today revealed in today’s preview that you can take any current NBA player into the game’s Creating a Legend mode.  I’m going to assume that we can take any player in the roster into that mode considering it isn’t restricted to the Legends.

The preview also talked about My Player’s bi-weekly paychecks which can be spent on skill points, camps with legends, or bowling with teammates.  On top of that, it covers the pre-draft recruiting process as well as more redundant information on the Legends mode.

So check out the preview and be sure to drop by and discuss in the Forum.

NLSC Wiki Updates

Our Wiki has once again been hit hard by spambots recently, so I’ve put a few new measures in place that should hopefully prevent them from creating pages with spam links and inappropriate content. Additionally, we currently do not allow anonymous users to create pages and accounts must now be at least four days old for registered users to create pages. However, anonymous and registers users alike can edit a majority of the pages in the Wiki, with only a few select pages being locked to preserve resources and deter would-be vandals. As I’ve mentioned before, our aim is to create the ultimate resource for basketball video games, so we invite you to jump in and help us expand our articles! Be sure to check out the Help section if you’re new to Wiki formatting.

More details on NBA 2K12’s My Player mode have just been posted over on the official Facebook page, along with yet another screenshot.

NBA 2K12 My Player Week – Day 1 – Mock Drafts

Day 1 of My Player Week continues with some info and a screenshot of the mock draft in NBA 2K12’s My Player mode. As you can see, some of the scout’s comments address the fallout of Ronnie’s pre-Draft interview, in which he noted he displayed a bit of an attitude.

Ronnie notes that the results of the mock draft are not absolute and that players may end up going higher or lower than projected, just as in real life. Join in the discussion here in the Forum or leave a comment below with your thoughts.

NBA 2K12 My Player Week – Day 1 – Pre-Draft Interviews

The first info and screenshot release of the week leading up to the My Player Insight has been released on the NBA 2K12 Facebook. In it we learn that your My Player will have pre-draft interviews with the general managers which will affect who drafts you and indirectly, your draft position.

 In the screenshot we can see Ronnie 2K’s player getting interviewed, but we can also see a new “Elites” team and logo.  It looks like we will finally be getting rid of the generic Draft Combine teams and adding uniforms and logos with a little more personality just like the old 2K Blacktop team logos.

New Downloads Section Reminder; Upload your files!

I’d just like to remind everyone once again about our recently relaunched Downloads section, which is integrated with the NLSC Forum. In relaunching the new section, we have weeded out all broken links and can now offer everyone the ability to upload files up to 100 MB in size for both NBA Live and NBA 2K, while immediately submitting them for inclusion in the database. Our aim is to provide the community with free file hosting without fear of work getting lost after a period of inactivity, which has been an issue in the past with patchers using various free hosting services around the Internet.

We’re keen to help out the modding communities for NBA Live and NBA 2K with tutorials, resources and file hosting, so please feel free to begin using the facilities; all you need is an NLSC Forum account to start uploading! If you have any questions or run into any problems, please drop us a line. If you have a file larger than 100 MB, by all means shoot me an email or PM so that we can make alternative arrangements.
