NLSC Podcast – Episode #252

NLSC Podcast Logo

Episode #252 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Join Arcane and I as we recap all of the NBA Live 19 news coming out of EA Play, give our thoughts on the pre-order announcement for NBA 2K19, and discuss the end of the 2018 NBA Finals.

On this week’s show…

  • EA Play 2018 is upon us! Before the event tipped off, a teaser screenshot gave us a few clues about what to expect from NBA Live 19.
  • During the press conference, we got our first glimpse of NBA Live 19 via the official reveal trailer. We liked what we saw, and noticed several improvements over NBA Live 18.
  • In addition to the official reveal trailer, a ton of information was also posted, including the release dates for the demo and full game. We discuss what we know so far about expansions to The One, the new player progression system, some key gameplay improvements, and more.
  • The 20th Anniversary Edition of NBA 2K19 has been announced, along with its cover player, LeBron James. Unfortunately, there’s a distinct lack of goodwill in the approach this year.
  • NBA 2K18 has received one last official patch. However, in lieu of any patch notes, it seems that all it’s done is add a pre-order link for NBA 2K19.
  • We wrap up Episode #252 of the NLSC Podcast with our thoughts on the conclusion of the 2018 NBA Finals, and a look ahead to what may be another interesting offseason. Will LeBron make another controversial decision, or will he remain with the Cavaliers?

NLSC Podcast – Episode #237

NLSC Podcast Logo

Episode #237 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Join guest host The X and myself as we discuss the All-Star updates for NBA Live 18, the latest controversies involving NBA 2K18, and the first two days of the 2018 NBA All-Star Weekend.

On this week’s show…

  • Since it’s The X’s first time on the NLSC Podcast, we talk a little about his history with basketball video games, as well as his tenure in the community.
  • NBA Live 18 has received some new updates, specifically accurate All-Star jerseys and trade deadline rosters. We’re glad to see the updates coming through a little more quickly.
  • New All-Star Fantasy Challenges have also been added to NBA Live 18 Ultimate Team. We’re liking the latest content, though there’s more we’d like to see added to the mode.
  • An Australian-exclusive Virtual Currency sale has accidentally been advertised worldwide, leading to some unhappy US gamers who weren’t aware of the restrictions on the promotion. 2K’s response to the issue left something to be desired.
  • In honour of the All-Star Weekend, NBA 2K18 offered Double Rep in MyCAREER and the connected modes, but the length of the event, not to mention the timing, could’ve been better.
  • Our Week in Basketball Gaming consisted of a couple of 2K Pro-Am sessions in NBA 2K18 that yielded mixed results, and Fantasy Challenges in NBA Live 18 Ultimate Team.
  • We wrap up Episode #237 of the NLSC Podcast with a recap of the first two days of the 2018 NBA All-Star Weekend. We have our gripes, but at the end of the day, we can certainly agree that it is what it is!

NBA Live 18 Patch 1.11: All-Star & Trade Deadline Content

All-Star Stephen Curry (NBA Live 18)

Patch 1.11 has been released for NBA Live 18. The update will come through automatically as long as your PlayStation 4 or Xbox One is connected to the Internet. If you encounter any difficulties, try restarting your console.

The patch includes rosters updated as of the trade deadline, as well as the 2018 All-Star jerseys and court. As with the All-Star art updates for NBA 2K18, all of the players are wearing unique jerseys with their respective team logos, as the members of Team LeBron and Team Stephen will be doing in this year’s All-Star Game. The teams will still be referred to as the East and West All-Stars, to avoid inaccuracies in Franchise mode. All-Star content has also been added to NBA Live 18 Ultimate Team.

Several gameplay tweaks have also been made in Patch 1.11. Inside shots have been tuned for a lower success rate on contested attempts, anklebreakers have been adjusted, and various changes have been made to Playstyles and Traits. New faces have also come through for several players, including LeBron James, Kyrie Irving, and Lonzo Ball. All in all, it’s quite a substantial update.

Please see below for the full patch notes; you can also find a complete update history here in our Wiki. Feel free to add your thoughts in the comments below, as well as in this topic in the NBA Live 18 section of the NLSC Forum.

NLSC Podcast – Episode #236

NLSC Podcast Logo

Episode #236 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Join Arcane and I as we discuss this week’s updates for NBA Live 18 and NBA 2K18, wonder about the future direction of the NBA 2K series, react to the trade deadline deals, and preview the 2018 All-Star Weekend.

On this week’s show…

  • Fortunately, EA Sports corrected the issue with last week’s roster update for NBA Live 18 fairly quickly, pushing through a new roster without duplicate players. NBA 2K18’s rosters, meanwhile, have already been updated as of the trade deadline.
  • Patch 1.10 has been released for NBA 2K18, but it’s another fix centred around the NBA 2K League Combine, with no updates that affect a majority of users.
  • We discuss the future direction of the NBA 2K series, from the modes of focus to the intrusiveness of microtransactions. Will the success of NBA 2K18 lead the series down a bad path?
  • Our Week in Basketball Gaming included a return to MyCAREER, missed opportunities in Ultimate Team, and another session of 2K Pro-Am.
  • We wrap up Episode #236 of the NLSC Podcast with a look at the real NBA, including a devastating injury for Kristaps Porzingas, the trade deadline, and predictions for the 2018 All-Star Weekend.

NBA 2K18 Patch 1.10 Optimises NBA 2K League Combine

NBA 2K League Logo (NBA 2K18)

PlayStation 4 and Xbox One users may have noticed a new patch come through for NBA 2K18. As per this Tweet from the official NBA 2K League Twitter account, the update provides optimisation for the League Combine, which is currently getting underway.

Unfortunately, there are no other fixes or enhancements for the base game included in the latest patch. It would seem that 2K’s sole focus right now is on launching the NBA 2K League; understandable given the magnitude of the venture, but also frustrating for a majority of the user base. It remains to be seen whether any more patches of substance and relevance will come through.

As always, feel free to share any thoughts in the comments below, as well as in this topic in the Forum. You can also find a complete update history for NBA 2K18 here in our Wiki.

NBA 2K18 Patch 1.09 Released; NBA 2K League Combine Support

NLSC GrindTime in 2K Pro-Am (NBA 2K18)

I’m a little behind in posting a bulletin as I’ve had issues with my connection the past few days, but Patch 1.09 has been released for NBA 2K18. It’s currently available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, and will be downloaded automatically as long as you have an active Internet connection. If you run into any issues, try restarting your Steam client or console.

The patch itself simply adds support for the NBA 2K League Combine, which is taking place during February. As discussed in the latest episode of the NLSC Podcast, the Combine is the next step in choosing players to take part in the upcoming NBA 2K League. No gameplay adjustments or other technical fixes have been included in Patch 1.09.

New rosters have also come through NBA 2K18, featuring the recent Blake Griffin trade. The All-Star teams have not been updated yet, but I assume they will be in time for the 2018 All-Star Weekend. In the meantime, feel free to share your thoughts on the latest title update in the comments below, as well as this topic in the NBA 2K18 section of the NLSC Forum.

NBA Live 18 Patch 1.10 Available Now; New Rosters

Lauri Markkanen in NBA Live 18

Patch 1.10 is now available for NBA Live 18. The latest title update includes various technical fixes for the online experiences, and also addresses an issue when changing lineups in Play Now. Please see below for the full patch notes.

New rosters have also been pushed through. A couple of recent transactions are unaccounted for, though in some cases that’s a result of NBA Live 18 not reflecting the new expanded rosters with Two-Way players. Of course, with the roster editing capabilities we now have in the game, players like DeAndre Liggins and Trey Burke can be signed to their new teams.

As always, the latest patch will come through automatically as long as your PlayStation 4 or Xbox One has an active Internet connection. If you encounter any difficulties, try restarting your console.

On the heels of Patch 1.07’s release, Patch 1.08 has been pushed through for NBA 2K18. There aren’t any patch notes as yet, but it can be assumed that the update is a hotfix for a couple of issues caused by 1.07. The update is currently only available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and should come through automatically as long as your console is connected to the Internet. If you encounter any issues, try restarting. As of this post, the PC and Switch are still awaiting Patches 1.07 and 1.08.

UPDATE: The latest patch is now available for the PC version as well.

In other news, the latest roster update has added a few new players to the historical teams. Rashard Lewis joins the All-Time Thunder (owing to his tenure with the Seattle SuperSonics), as well as the All-Time Magic. Kevin Martin is now available on the All-Time Kings, while Donyell Marshall has been added to the 2007 Cleveland Cavaliers. Further details on the ratings changes in the latest roster can be found here over on Operation Sports, courtesy of Mike Stauffer.

I’ll be sure to post a bulletin if any further information on Patch 1.08 is released, as well as any updates on the PC patches. In the meantime, you can check out an update history for NBA 2K18 here in our Wiki.

NBA 2K18: Damian Lillard vs. Tony Parker

Patch 1.07 has been released for NBA 2K18. As of this post, it is available for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game, with the PC and Switch patches coming soon. The new update will be downloaded automatically as long as your system is connected to the Internet; if you encounter any issues, try restarting. I’ll update this bulletin as the other patches are released.

UPDATE: The latest patch is now available for the PC version as well.

The new patch addresses some technical problems, including an issue with the number of timeouts displayed on the scoreboard, incorrect VC earnings, glitches with Two-Way players in MyLEAGUE and MyGM, and game crashes. The custom t-shirt kiosk in The Neighborhood will also be reopening soon.

NBA Live 18 Patch 1.09 Released; LIVESTRIKE Sweepstakes

LIVESTRIKE Sweepstakes in NBA Live 18

A new patch (1.09) has come through for NBA Live 18. The relatively small update is available for both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and should download automatically as long as you have an active Internet connection. If you encounter any issues, try restarting your console.

There aren’t any official patch notes as yet, but it’s quite likely that the update simply adds compatibility for the forthcoming LIVESTRIKE Events. From December 19th-25th, gamers will have an opportunity to earn in-game gear that they may have missed during the previous LIVESTRIKE events.

Furthermore, by earning the in-game clothing from Undefeated, BAPE, and Pink Dolphin, and submitting a screenshot of your player wearing it, you can enter the Outfit of the Day Sweepstakes to win some real gear. Please note that the sweepstakes are only open to US residents. Full terms and conditions can be found here.

If any further patch notes are provided, we’ll be sure to post them as soon as possible. In the meantime, you can check out a full update history for NBA Live 18 here in our Wiki. Feel free to discuss the patch and the LIVESTRIKE events in the comments section below, as well as in our NBA Live 18 Forum.

NLSC Podcast – Episode #230

NLSC Podcast Logo

Episode #230 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Without any technical issues to keep us off the air, we’re back to talk about the latest updates for NBA Live 18 and NBA 2K18, share our latest impressions of both games, and catch up on the past couple of weeks in basketball gaming news.

On this week’s show…

  • Patch 1.08 has added comprehensive roster editing to NBA Live 18. We’re certainly surprised, and impressed at how the game has continued to improve since launch.
  • NBA 2K18’s Patch 1.06 has addressed some bugs, but also caused a few more problems. To be honest, we’re still feeling disappointed with this year’s release from Visual Concepts.
  • The qualifying round for the NBA 2K League will be taking place in January. We share our thoughts on what the League might be like, given our experiences with 2K Pro-Am.
  • Several t-shirts have been removed from the kiosk in The Neighborhood, mostly due to trademark and copyright concerns. This has led to some issues with lost VC.
  • A teenager has spent over $17,000 AUS on microtransactions across various games, leading us to once again reflect on their intrusive nature in AAA titles.
  • Our Week in Basketball Gaming has seen our frustration with 2K Pro-Am reach its boiling point, an enjoyable victory in The Playground, and possible plans to change up our habits on the virtual hardwood.
  • We wrap up Episode #230 of the NLSC Podcast with some NBA discussion, including recent streaks, and the Jahlil Okafor trade.

NBA Live 18 Patch 1.08 Released; Roster Editing, New Shoes

New Roster Management in NBA Live 18

Patch 1.08 is now available for NBA Live 18, and it’s an update that a lot of basketball gamers have been waiting for. Not only does the latest title update include a variety of new shoes, it also adds full roster editing to the game! Roster editing functionality has been absent since the series was rebooted in 2013 with NBA Live 14, and as such, it’s become a fixture on our Wishlists. It’s great to finally see it return, and in a post-release update, no less.

The new roster editing functionality includes the ability to change heights, weights, years pro, numbers, ratings, gear, traits, and playstyles; basically, all player bio data. Players can also be traded or assigned to other teams, as well as cut and signed from the Free Agent Pool. There are also 135 slots for created players, which is a pleasant surprise. Once you customise the roster, you’re able to take it into Franchise mode, just as in years past.

As always, the latest patch will come through automatically as long as your PlayStation 4 or Xbox One is connected to the Internet. If you encounter any issues, try restarting your console.

This is obviously excellent news, and as we’ve mentioned on the NLSC Podcast, something we didn’t expect to see happen until NBA Live 19. We’ll have more reactions in Episode #230, but in the meantime, feel free to add your thoughts in the comments section below, as well as here in the NBA Live 18 section of the NLSC Forum. If any additional patch notes are released, we’ll be sure to follow up and post them. You can also find an update history for NBA Live 18 here in our Wiki.

NBA 2K18: Paul George

Patch 1.06 has been released for NBA 2K18. The update is currently available for the Xbox One, and will be released on PC, PlayStation 4, and Nintendo Switch soon. I’ll update this post as the patch comes through on those platforms.

UPDATE: The PC and PlayStation 4 patches are now available.

The patch addresses various bugs, primarily in MyCAREER and The Neighborhood, as well as the connected modes. The full patch notes are as follows:

  • Trivia will be re-enabled in the 2K Zone in MyCAREER once all consoles have received this update. If you have not yet tried it out, 2K Zone Trivia provides 25 VC for every question you answer correctly!
  • Users will no longer experience a hang when attempting to read texts from Bryan in MyCAREER.
  • Fixed an issue where Bryan would stop sending users texts to pick up their endorsement VC cheques in MyCAREER.
  • Addressed a hang that could occur in the Gatorade Training Facility right before starting an activity.
  • Addressed a case where some users were seeing their custom created shoes appearing differently in-game than how they looked in the editor.
  • The camera will no longer focus on the crowd when play resumes when called right before a free throw in Pro-Am and Play Now Online games.
  • Fixed a case where the playoffs would fail to advance after completing a round during an offline MyCAREER.
  • Squads will now remain intact when choosing to Play Game after completing a Ruffles Tournament game.
  • Michael Jordan’s tongue should now look a little more Mike-like

  • A handful of new players have been added to the All-Time teams and historical squads in NBA 2K18. Unfortunately, some of the biggest names are still absent.
  • Our Week in Basketball Gaming was full and eventful! Although we had some rough sessions of 2K Pro-Am, we did pick up a few victories (including some in The Playground), continued our respective MyCAREERs, and had fun with NBA Live 18 online and offline. We also discuss shooting mechanics in NBA 2K18.
  • We wrap up Episode #229 of the NLSC Podcast with some NBA talk, including the Celtics’ winning streak coming to an end, the Thunder/Warriors clash, and Derrick Rose’s future.

NBA Live 18 Patch 1.07 Released; 3v3, Updated Rosters

Eric Bledsoe on the Milwaukee Bucks (NBA Live 18)

A new patch (1.07) has come through for NBA Live 18. It will be downloaded automatically as long as your PlayStation 4 or Xbox One is connected to the Internet; if it’s not showing up, try restarting your console.

Patch 1.07 is a substantial content update, as it not only provides an overdue roster update, but also adds a 3v3 option to Live Run. 3v3 had previously been teased by the official social media accounts, and was more or less officially confirmed yesterday.

The latest rosters are accurate as of November 15th. While this date is obviously a week behind, no significant transactions have occurred since then, so the rosters should be more or less accurate. A handful of incorrect jersey numbers have also been corrected.

Other key issues addressed by Patch 1.07 include problems with Carmelo Anthony’s jumpshot not unlocking, Reward Crates forcing players to exit online lobbies, and disconnections while navigating The One Store. The patch notes, which you can check out below in their entirety, also mention the usual “general stability fixes and improvements”.

As always, feel free to discuss the latest patch in the comments section below, as well as in this topic in the NBA Live 18 section of our Forum. You can also find a full update history for NBA Live 18 here in our Wiki.
