NLSC Podcast - Leftos & JaoSming Impromptu-cast

Special bonus podcast this week!

Leftos & JaoSming Impromptu-cast (March 1st, 2013)

Hosts: Leftos, JaoSming

Late Thursday night in Athens, early in the evening in Vermont, Leftos and JaoSming get together seemingly just to play some Trials Evolution Gold Edition and chat. One hour in, just as Jon is finishing every single track in the single player "campaign", they realise they are talking about some interesting stuff. So, Leftos hits record and an impromptu podcast happens.

  • JaoSming shows off his mad skills in Trials, but admits he can screw up pretty much everything else.
  • They go through what stuff your favorite duo has done together since that Episode #6 when they were last together on the NLSC Podcast.
  • JaoSming makes some bold claims about NBA 2K13, and they both go over the ways they enjoy the game.
  • They introduce the upcoming Roster Workshop tool for NBA 2K13.
  • Leftos reminisces about how his NBA Stats Tracker tool started, how far it's gone, and how it can help both real-life coaches and NBA 2K gamers enhance their experience and gain an advantage over their opponents.
  • They discuss how Brad Pitt stole a Cavaliers' stats guy in Moneyball. Wait, what?
  • They go back to how their strong friendship began. Spoiler: It was yet another tool that brought them together.
  • The troubles of decoding the roster are brought up; both have immense respect for Vlad and what he does every year.
  • JaoSming tries to persaude everyone he's still a good husband and father.
  • An interesting question is brought up: When doing an Association, do you treat your players as real people, or do you ignore them completely and do your thing knowing its just a videogame? What's more engaging when you introduce your Association to an audience?
  • NBA Inside 09 is brought up, which apparently was a terrible basketball game, but had a good storyline, something that's missing from all other basketbal games.
  • Suddenly, magic happens, as they decide they're going to start the biggest (and most interesting, possibly) project they've ever undertaken, and change the way basketball games are played. We're not kidding.
