Episode #21 (March 13th, 2013)
Hosts: Leftos, Andrew, Arcane
We celebrate the NLSC Podcast's ability to enjoy some "adult beverages" as we reach Episode #21, where we once again talk about the latest week in the NBA, basketball video gaming and more. As usual, Leftos, Arcane and I are your hosts and we invite you to join us as we share our thoughts on the following topics:
- We called the big two-oh a landmark last week, but due to cultural significance we're trotting out the phrase again for the 21st episode.
- Ben throws down a dunking challenge to JaoSming, so I pull a LeBron James.
- For a change of pace, we dive straight into the NBA discussion this week, beginning with DeAndre Jordan's dunk and the reactions it's received.
- We recognise the Heat's winning streak, with Ben being the most excited about it.
- The Mavericks are signing the first player in league history with multiple sclerosis. We wish Chris Wright well and applaud what we hope will be a feel-good story, while reflecting on some similar sporting stories (one of them admittedly fictional).
- Moving on to community news, we once again touch upon the subject of sharing resources when it comes to patching/modding.
- The Ultimate Base Roster has hit a significant milestone, so we take some time to recognise the outstanding efforts of everyone involved.
- Ben has a few gripes about NBA 2K13 and isn't a fan of Dunk Contest Hero.
- We finish up with some talk about SimCity 5 and the messy situation upon launch. I sneak in a reference to LucasArts' Afterlife, a SimCity clone from 1996 and an old favourite.
