NBA Live 18 Soundtrack Revealed; Listen on Spotify

NBA Live 18 Soundtrack

EA Sports has officially announced the NBA Live 18 soundtrack. The track list for this year’s game includes artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Rick Ross, Nas, Kid Cudi, and Machine Gun Kelly. Changing things up from the “underground” vibe of the past few games, this year’s soundtrack features a combination of big names and up-and-coming artists.

Check out the full track list below. If you’d like to preview the NBA Live 18 soundtrack, you can tune in on Spotify. Note that only thirteen songs are available at this time, but the full version of the soundtrack will be available to listen to on Spotify on August 11th, to coincide with the release of the demo.

I’ve added the track list to the NBA Live Soundtracks page in our Wiki. As always, I invite the community to help out in keeping our Wiki up to date with the latest information, especially with the preview season for NBA Live 18 and NBA 2K18 starting to kick into high gear.

Once again, check out the soundtrack below, and feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments. You can also join in the discussion here in the NLSC Forum.

NBA 2K18 Soundtrack Revealed; Includes Range of Genres

As originally reported by our friends over at Operation Sports and discussed in Episode #214 of the NLSC Podcast, the NBA 2K18 Soundtrack has been revealed. As has been the case with the past few NBA 2K soundtracks, the entire playlist is available to listen to on Spotify.

Glancing at the track list, you’ll notice that there’s a mix of genres, with recent songs and old favourites alike. Portland Trail Blazers’ star Damian Lillard (aka Dame D.O.L.L.A) notably has a couple of songs on the NBA 2K18 Soundtrack, specifically “Wasatch Front” and the hidden track “Shot Clock”.

Although the soundtrack is hardly the most important part of a basketball video game, it always tends to be a point of interest. Hopefully more substantial information about NBA 2K18 isn’t too far away, but for now, you can at least make plans to cue up your favourite songs in this year’s game, or mute the soundtrack in favour of listening to something else while you play.

Check out the full track list below or here in our Wiki, and feel free to leave any thoughts in the comments. You can also jump into the discussion here in the Forum, where members of the community have also offered their thoughts on what kind of music they’d prefer to have in the game.

The Friday Five: 5 Things Old School Basketball Gamers Did

The Friday Five

Welcome to this week’s edition of The Friday Five! The Friday Five is a feature that I post every Friday in which I give my thoughts on a topic that’s related to NBA Live, NBA 2K, and other basketball video games, as well as the real NBA, and other areas of interest to our community. The feature is presented as either a list of five items, or in the form of a Top 5 countdown.

I’ve been playing basketball video games for a long time now, and I know that I’m far from the only person in our community with a long history on the virtual hardwood. If you go back a long way with basketball video games, chances are you have a healthy appreciation for how far they’ve come, while also harbouring a certain amount of nostalgia for the more primitive games from yesteryear. You probably remember many of their quirks, some of which you may miss, whereas others will definitely leave you feeling very grateful that they’re no longer an issue.

Of course, we gamers have plenty of quirks of our own, whether it’s some kind of superstitious ritual with the controls (“Yeah, tapping the button at that time totally works!”), or just something we do because it’s kind of fun, such as timing movements with the soundtrack. When it comes to basketball games, there are also certain things that we old school gamers did that probably seem a bit strange and amusing to younger gamers, because technology is so much better now. Just for fun, I thought I’d make a list of some of those quirky rituals and old fashioned activities that it seems many of us old school basketball gamers indulged in at one time or another.
