NLSC Podcast – Episode #162

NLSC Podcast Logo

Episode #162 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! It’s been a quiet week for basketball video game news, but Arcane, Kenny, and I do have a couple of tidbits to talk about, as well as our latest experiences in 2K Pro-Am, and the 2016 NBA Finals. Also, a new segment makes its debut!

On this week’s show…

  • We tip off the show with another discussion on the lack of updates for NBA Live 16 through the end of the regular season and Playoffs, and what we’d like to see EA do during the offseason in the lead up to NBA Live 17.
  • 2K Sports are unveiling Team 2K, their talent lineup for NBA 2K17 which includes cover player Paul George. We speculate on the silhouettes in the teaser image.
  • In Our Week in Basketball Gaming, we reflect on last week’s 2K Pro-Am session, where we discovered that contrary to what Homer Simpson once said, there are actually sweeter and more satisfying things than winning by default.
  • Turning our attention to the 2016 NBA Finals, we reflect on the first two games, and make our predictions for the rest of the series. Sorry, Cleveland Cavaliers fans.
  • As it stands right now, who is the Finals MVP? What does it mean for Stephen Curry’s legacy – and the Michael Jordan comparisons – if he doesn’t have a big series?
  • With the season winding down, we tally our final scores for Bold Predictions. We’re hoping to do better next year.
  • Episode #162 of the NLSC Podcast wraps up with a brand new segment: Trivia Time! Andrew is the quizmaster, as Arcane and Kenny square off in answering three trivia questions. This week, the questions cover NBA Live and NBA Jam.

NLSC Podcast Episode #162 Mailbag Call

NLSC Podcast

This is a last call for any and all topic suggestions and mailbag questions for Episode #162 of the NLSC Podcast! We’ll be recording the show a day earlier this week, so if there’s anything specific that you’d like us to talk about in the next episode, please let us know ASAP!

As usual, we ask that you try to keep suggestions along the lines of our core content and other subjects that are relevant to our community: NBA Live, NBA 2K, and basketball gaming in general, the real NBA, modding, and site history. We will give consideration to other topics, but we figure that most people come here for basketball gaming content, and those other related topics tend to be the most common interests that we all share. We’d also like to avoid covering the same topics too often – unless there’s a new and interesting development, of course – so you might want to glance back in the archives if you’ve missed some recent shows.

With that said…do you have any suggestions? If so, please let us know in the comments section below, or in this thread in the NLSC Hub section of the Forum. You can also submit topics and questions via our Facebook and Twitter; be sure to connect with us on social media if you haven’t already.

As always, a huge thank you to everyone who continues to tune in every week, and show interest in the NLSC Podcast through feedback and topic suggestions. It seems a few more of you are tuning in as of late, so we hope that you’re enjoying listening to the shows as much as we enjoy recording them! If you haven’t caught Episode #161 yet, tune in here. Don’t forget that you can also subscribe to the NLSC Podcast on iTunes, as well as find us on Stitcher if you’d like to listen to the shows on your mobile or tablet devices. Stay tuned for Episode #162!

NLSC Podcast – Episode #161

NLSC Podcast Logo

Episode #161 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Join Arcane, Kenny, and myself as we discuss the reveal of the NBA 2K17 cover, a promising tidbit regarding NBA Live 17, the upcoming 2016 NBA Finals, and our week in basketball gaming.

On this week’s show…

  • Paul George has been officially revealed as the cover player for NBA 2K17. A good choice, but was he our pick? We also discuss the pre-order bonuses.
  • It seems that former NBA player Jamario Moon is providing motion capture for NBA Live 17, suggesting that a fully featured console release is definitely still in development.
  • Speaking of NBA Live 17, a recent report by GameInformer has revealed that all EA Sports titles will apparently be making the transition from the Ignite engine to the Frostbite engine. We discuss what this might mean for the NBA Live series moving forward.
  • We remind PlayStation Plus subscribers to pick up the PlayStation 4 version of NBA 2K16 via June’s Instant Game Collection, if they don’t already own it, or would like to double-dip.
  • In Our Week in Basketball Gaming: 2K Pro-Am frustration, Stephen Curry in NBA Live 95, and more MyLEAGUE plans.
  • Moving on to the real NBA, we recap the end of the Golden State Warriors/Oklahoma City Thunder clash, and look ahead to the NBA Finals.
  • Do we think that Kevin Durant will be moving on from the Thunder, following their collapse and disappointing elimination in the Western Conference Finals?
  • We briefly touch on the fatal shooting of Bryce Dejean-Jones.
  • Episode #161 of the NLSC Podcast ends with this week’s Bold Predictions.
