A critical thing about MyCareer bans is that the people who are being banned are playing online (single player, but not disconnected from the internet) which means that those that cheated were essentially hacking for VC, which is pay-for content. In the eyes of a game developer, this is no different than pirating the game. You're hypothetically taking money out of their pockets. If these people were truly playing offline and just using SP, they would not have been banned.

Ditto 1 hour drive to work this morning made that much more enjoyable lol

Andrew I think the difference in Mike James and Nate Robinson is that James learnt since his days in Toronto to do other things than just throw up shots, James abit like Anthony Carter ran the offence and played solid D while having that veteran leadership in he locker room, can't say any of those things about Nate who has being in the league over 10 years now still has the same mindset from when he was a rookie with the knicks.

Just a heads up: you can also now find us on Stitcher!

Episode #134 (November 12th, 2015)

Hosts: Andrew & Arcane

Tune in to Episode #134 of the NLSC Podcast, hosted by Arcane and myself! This week we're talking updates for NBA Live 16 and NBA 2K16, some historically remarkable numbers for Andre Drummond, and a couple of other news items from the past week.

On this week's show...

  • NBA Live 16 is in need of a major patch and content update. When do we think we might see it?
  • We look ahead to NBA Live 17 once again, and speculate on whether major updates for 16 might be shelved in favour of ensuring a much better game next year.
  • The third patch for NBA 2K16 should be coming soon. Mike Wang has posted some tidbits on what to expect over at Operation Sports.
  • Some gamers have discovered a couple of defensive settings (and possible oversight) in NBA 2K16 that make a huge difference to the way the CPU plays defense.
  • Moving on to the NBA discussion, Andre Drummond is doing something that hasn't been done in almost 50 years. We know that Leftos has to be pleased.
  • LeBron James supports our campaign to put an end to sleeved jerseys! OK, not really, but it's clear The King doesn't care for them either.
  • Derrick Rose is slowly regaining his form, which one of us is particularly pleased to see. We discuss the recent rumours surrounding Rose, and whether he's actually on the way out of Chicago.
  • The Miami Heat have made the first trade of the regular season, sending Mario Chalmers to the Memphis Grizzlies.
  • We end Episode #134 of the NLSC Podcast with a dubious statistic involving Nick Young and Kobe Bryant.

Great podcast guys. It wouldn't surprise me if EA has limited support of Live 16 to focus on big changes for Live 17. Whatever they do I think the sales of Live 17 will go a long way in determining what they do with the license in the future.

Please bring back NBA street!!!!!!!


Have you guys thought about getting a Steam machine at all? The thought of having console type play but still being able to have access to the mods that PC users have sounds amazing to me.

We'll add the Steam machine question to the topic list for next week, as that is an interesting topic. (Y)

Episode #135 (November 21st, 2015)

Hosts: Andrew & Arcane

We're a little late this week, but Arcane and I weren't about to let our digital broadcasting streak end so easily. As such, Episode #135 of the NLSC Podcast is out now; tune in for the latest discussion on NBA Live 16, NBA 2K16, the past week in the NBA, and a couple of other topics!

On this week's show...

  • A new roster has come through for NBA Live 16, but the latest update still leaves something to be desired.
  • On the other hand, a huge patch has come through for NBA 2K16 on PS4. The PC and X1 patches are still on the way.
  • Speaking of the Xbox One, NBA Jam: On Fire Edition is on the newly announced list of backwards compatible games. We discuss the possibility of the game coming to PlayStation 4 as well.
  • If nothing else, forthcoming backwards compatibility with the PlayStation 2 might allow us to play NBA Street 1-3 on Sony's latest console.
  • We've got a listener question this week: Would we consider buying a Steam machine?
  • Stephen Curry has passed his father in career threes, as he and the Golden State Warriors continue to have a fantastic start to the season. We discuss their success so far, and consider the comparisons to great teams and players from the past.
  • The Philadelphia 76ers, on the other hand, continue to lose. When will the tanking end?
  • Kevin McHale has been fired following the Houston Rockets' slow start. We consider whether the move was fair, or made too early.
  • Speaking of coaches in the hot seat, George Karl is butting heads with DeMarcus Cousins and GM Vlade Divac. Do we think he'll last the season?
  • We wrap up Episode #135 of the NLSC Podcast with some more interesting stats.

I haven't been raising the volume on any of the recent episodes, but if it's coming out a bit low I might start putting it up a couple of decibels again.

Volume is fine for me.

BTW, the Steam Machines run Steam OS, which is linux based, meaning that they don't run Windows PC games. Figured I'd point that out.

Sounded alright on my PC, but as I said, I could probably go a couple of decibels higher, for those listening on the go.

In that case, yeah, I definitely have no use for one.

Episode #136 (November 26th, 2015)

Hosts: Andrew & Arcane

We're back to our regular schedule this week, with Episode #136 of the NLSC Podcast recorded on time and available to listen to right now! Tune in to hear our discussion of the newly released patch for NBA Live 16, an exciting development in NBA 2K16 modding, and all the latest action from the past week in the NBA.

On this week's show...

  • The big patch and content update for NBA Live 16 has finally come through. We offer up some early impressions, with more to come next week after further hands-on time.
  • More exciting news on the NBA 2K16 PC modding front, as it appears as though we'll be able to edit models in Blender in the not too distant future.
  • We recap some of the weekly features here at the NLSC, including the revival of the NBA Live Domain.
  • Moving on to our NBA discussion, the Golden State Warriors continue their hot start, and Stephen Curry is still on fire. We wonder which happens first: the Warriors losing, or the Philadelphia 76ers winning.
  • LeBron James and Dwyane Wade continue to ascend the all-time leaderboards. Where would we rank the two future Hall of Famers and former teammates on the list of all-time greats?
  • Kobe Bryant's struggles may have just hit a new low. We're broached the subject before, but could we see the Black Mamba hang it up before the season is over?
  • We wrap up Episode #136 of the NLSC Podcast with a very classy tribute in NBA Live 16.

Episode #137 (December 3rd, 2015)

Hosts: Andrew & Arcane

It's that time of the week once again, so tune in to Episode #137 of the NLSC Podcast! This week, Arcane and I make plans for NBA Live 16 and NBA 2K16, discuss Kobe Bryant's retirement announcement, and make some bold predictions that we might have to answer for in Episode #138.

On this week's show...

  • Aside from 2K's new partnership with Marvel leading to some new in-game content, there isn't a lot of basketball gaming news this week. Nevertheless, we have a few more thoughts about NBA Live 16 and NBA 2K16 to share, including some more issues we'd like to see addressed.
  • With the new games obviously a long way away, we outline some plans for what we'd like to do in NBA Live 16 and NBA 2K16 in the coming weeks and months.
  • Some recent NLSC features are also quickly recapped.
  • Moving on to this week's NBA discussion, the Golden State Warriors are still winning, and it's earned Luke Walton Coach of the Month honours. It's just a shame that he's technically winless!
  • Kobe Bryant has announced that he will retire at the end of the season, officially making the year a farewell tour. Obviously, that means his number will be retired in the not too distant future...but which one?
  • One streak is over as the Philadelphia 76ers have finally won a game! The Los Angeles Lakers were the unlucky opponent, though it doesn't sound like Byron Scott is on the chopping block just yet.
  • A new segment makes its debut: Bold Predictions for Next Week. Will we both be eating crow in the next episode?
  • We wrap up Episode #137 of the NLSC Podcast with some good news for anyone betting on the Warriors

Episode #138 (December 10th, 2015)

Hosts: Andrew & Arcane

Episode #138 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! In this week's show, Arcane and I discuss ideas for the NBA Live 16 roster updates, speculate on an upcoming event involving NBA 2K16, talk about the past week in the NBA, and more.

On this week's show...

  • The NBA Live 16 rosters are gradually getting better and more complete, but there's still work to be done. We reflect on NBA Live 09's commitment to being "made fresh daily".
  • 2K has teased a "major event" that will be tipping off on December 12th, involving NBA 2K16. We speculate as to what it might be.
  • Are there any mods or other projects that we'd really like to undertake in the future?
  • We briefly recap this week's Wednesday Wayback, and provide a teaser for the next video retrospective.
  • Moving on to this week's NBA discussion...who's the best player in the NBA right now? Stephen Curry, or LeBron James?
  • Lance Stephenson and Josh Smith are reportedly on the trading block. We consider whether or not the Los Angeles Clippers will have any luck moving them.
  • On its eleventh anniversary, we reminisce about Tracy McGrady's 13 points in 35 seconds. (Note: We incorrectly refer to it being the tenth anniversary on the show; whoops!)
  • The Philadelphia 76ers have hired Jerry Colangelo, after the league strongly suggested doing so. Was that an appropriate move by the NBA, and what does it mean for the Sixers?
  • We throw out new Bold Predictions for Next Week, and reflect on last week's predictions.
  • Episode #138 of the NLSC Podcast wraps up with some more interesting statistics.

Episode #139 (December 19th, 2015)

Hosts: Andrew & Arcane

We're coming at you a little later this week, but Episode #139 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! It's our last episode for 2015, so in addition to discussing all the news from the past week, we also take a look back on the year that was, and look ahead to 2016. Episodes will resume in early January; as always, thanks for tuning in and supporting the NLSC Podcast throughout the year!

On this week's show...

  • Some new roster and content updates have come through for NBA Live 16, including this year's Christmas jerseys, Stance socks, and a few new bug fixes.
  • NBA 2K16 has also received a new patch on all the major platforms, which resolves a few issues in gameplay and various game modes.
  • We reflect on last week's big event for NBA 2K16, which turned out to be a digital launch party for Kyrie Irving's new shoes. Were we expecting something better?
  • gregkwaste has released his 3D Importer/Exporter tool for NBA 2K16, opening up 3D editing for this year's game. Needless to say, it's another big development for the modding community.
  • We quickly recap this week's featured content on the NLSC.
  • The Streak is over! We react to the Milwaukee Bucks becoming the first team to defeat the Golden State Warriors this season.
  • Elsewhere, the Philadelphia 76ers continue to struggle, but Brett Brown has agreed to a contract extension through 2019.
  • Could Dwight Howard be heading to the Miami Heat? One of us isn't so thrilled about that possibility.
  • Nick Young has made history...by dishing out his first ever assist to Kobe Bryant. Apparently, it was the shoes.
  • We have new Bold Predictions for Next Week - or the next couple of weeks, actually. We also look back on last week's predictions, as one of us managed to get on the board.
  • Episode #139 of the NLSC Podcast ends with a Year in Review segment, where we look back on the best and worst of 2015, and look ahead to 2016.

Just a minor correction. Ty Lawson has the record for consecutive 3s in a game, at 10.

Different record. We're talking most threes in a game without a miss. Sprewell did it once, while Gordon did it twice (I'd actually forgotten that he'd done it more than once). Lawson does indeed hold the record for most consecutive threes to start a game, but he didn't shoot 100% on the night. So Lawson hit the most threes before missing, but not the most threes without missing. ;)

Re: NLSC Podcast - Episode #139 (December 19th, 2015)

Postby Andrew on Wed Dec 30, 2015 11:16 pm

As Arcane and I mentioned in Episode #139 of the NLSC Podcast, we decided to take a couple of weeks off over the holiday break, and make that show our 2015 finale. We're planning to get right back to our digital broadcasting duties in the new year however, and currently expect to be back on the air on the first Thursday of 2016, January 7th.

There have obviously been a couple of developments in basketball gaming and the NBA since Episode #139, which we'll naturally be discussing in Episode #140. However, we also wanted to encourage our regular listeners - and our newer listeners, too! - to submit some additional topic suggestions for the next episode, and future episodes of the NLSC Podcast. Whether you simply want to suggest a topic, or pose a topic to us in the form of a question, we're eager to hear your suggestions so that we can discuss the things that you want to hear about.

We'll certainly give consideration to any and all suggestions, though we do ask that you keep them within the scope of our coverage: NBA Live, NBA 2K, and basketball video games, as well as the real NBA and basketball in general. While we do branch out occasionally and make mention of other topics, we'd prefer to keep the NLSC Podcast in step with the rest of our content.

Once again, I'd like to thank everyone who tuned in to the NLSC Podcast throughout 2015. We've been getting some very encouraging feedback in recent weeks, so we'd like to up our interaction with our listeners with community suggested topics and more "listener mailbag" type segments. So, tell us what you think of the shows, and what you'd like us to talk about! As with all of our content, we're by basketball gamers, for basketball gamers, so be sure to drop us a line, and tune in for Episode #140 on January 7th.

Episode #140 (January 7th, 2016)

Hosts: Andrew & Arcane

It's the first Thursday of 2016, so we're tipping off another year of digital broadcasting with Episode #140 of the NLSC Podcast! This week we're catching up on all the news and events that took place over the holiday break, and discussing some topics submitted by our listeners. Seeing as how we've been off the air for a couple of weeks, Episode #140 is a bit longer than usual, but the show should be back to its normal length starting next week.

On this week's show...

  • There wasn't a whole lot of news over the break, but 2K did announce that eSports are coming to NBA 2K16 in early 2016.
  • NBA Live 16 hasn't received any significant content updates over the past couple of weeks. Should there be more content coming through for the game?
  • Wishlist season is looming. What are some of our main wishes for NBA Live 17 and NBA 2K17?
  • What does NBA Live need to do to gain momentum and start catching up to NBA 2K?
  • We give our thoughts on the direction of Ultimate Team and MyTEAM. How interested are we in the card collecting modes?
  • Joey Crawford is finally hanging up his whistle. Spoiler: We're not exactly heartbroken.
  • The Golden State Warriors are still on pace to challenge the Chicago Bulls' 72-10 record. Draymond Green is turning into a triple double machine.
  • We discuss the controversy with Markieff Morris in Phoenix, and defend our generation.
  • Arcane is doing well with our weekly Bold Predictions. Andrew is yet to get on the board.
  • This week's trivia question is about Michael Jordan. Can you get the answer before Arcane?
  • Twitter is looking to expand its character limit. Are we in favour of the change, and how many characters would we prefer?
  • We wrap up Episode #140 of the NLSC Podcast with some New Year's Resolutions, and an unfortunate clerical error involving C.J. McCollum.

Unfortunately Ben's audio recorded very softly this week. I tried to fix it up best I could without boosting it to the point where there's a hum in the background, but unfortunately it's still a bit quiet. For that reason, I didn't truncate silence in this week's show, because it likely would've cut out some of Ben talking altogether. Apologies for the technical issues, we'll be sure to double-check for it in the future. It hasn't been an issue (at least to that extent) in the past and Ben sounded loud enough in my headset, so I assumed everything was fine. As I said, I'll double-check that before we start recording in the future.

And the first episode of a new year, with some really good topic suggestions.

I'll take another shot at the raw recording and see if I can upload a better version.

In the future, you can always record your audio and Ben's into separate tracks and then you'd have complete control.

I already do that. ;)

I've tried messing around with the raw file, and I can't get it much better than the version that I uploaded, unfortunately. When I listen to the posted show though, the audio doesn't sound that different to me, except for Ben being a bit quieter, and even then, listening on my PC with the Windows volume at 100% and the volume control on my speakers at around 50%, Ben is audible, albeit still quieter than I am (and quieter than ideal). Are you all listening on PC with speakers, or are some of you using headphones, iTunes, or mobile devices?

Anyway, apologies again that the audio is a bit off this week with Ben's volume, no one's more frustrated than us when something like that happens. As I said, I'll be sure to double-check that in the future and make sure everything's fine before we get into doing the show.

Car speakers for me. Every podcast I listen to has a different volume level, but this one is generally the quietest of all. I always have my speakers turned up to the max and its still tough to hear, especially this week with Ben.

Just threw this week's mp3 into audacity with Taz' show's mp3 for comparison (content is one thing, but it's well produced audio-wise)

Image

the NLSC podcast definitely needs some normalization due to mic differences and adjustments throughout recording, but the overall volume level is still an issue for me.

Episode #141 (January 14th, 2016)

Hosts: Andrew & Arcane

It's Thursday, so it's time for another episode of the NLSC Podcast! In Episode #141, Arcane and I discuss the future of NBA Live and NBA 2K, NBA Jam trivia, and the latest NBA news and results as we find ourselves at the midway point of the 2016 season.

On this week’s show…

  • Has EA Sports done enough to create interest in NBA Live 17, or will the plug be pulled? Do they need to be doing more with NBA Live 16 to drum up interest for this year's game?
  • What's holding EA back from releasing a game that can compete with 2K?
  • We discuss some of the issues with animations in both NBA Live 16 and NBA 2K16.
  • With the NBA All-Star festivities not too far away, we reminisce about All-Star Weekend in NBA Live. Do we want EA to bring it back? You can probably guess our answer to that one!
  • Fox Sports Australia recently posted some NBA Jam trivia, which we quickly recap and reflect upon.
  • Which mode do we prefer in NBA 2K: MyLEAGUE, or MyGM?
  • Moving on to this week's NBA discussion, we mention a couple of notes from the past week, and run through a few midseason surprises and disappointments.
  • The second returns for this year's All-Star balloting have been released. The likely starters are becoming clearer, so we talk about some candidates for the reserves.
  • Which Chicago Bulls player is most likely to be traded: Joakim Noah, Derrick Rose, Taj Gibson, or Jimmy Butler?
  • We revisit the question of which number the Los Angeles Lakers should retire for Kobe Bryant.
  • Should Kevin Garnett receive a similar send-off to Kobe?
  • In this week's Bold Predictions for Next Week: Andrew still isn't on the scoreboard. Will his latest prediction break the drought?
  • We wrap up Episode #141 of the NLSC Podcast by naming the team we'd buy if we won this week's big Powerball jackpot.

I normalised the audio and brought the volume up a little, plus Ben and I both raised our volumes in Skype and did a few tests to make sure everything was OK before we started recording. So I'm guessing it's not just a placebo, but either way, good to know this week's show sounded better!

Episode #142 (January 21st, 2016)

Hosts: Andrew & Arcane

It's Thursday once again, so a new episode of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Arcane and I are fulfilling our digital broadcasting duties this week with Episode #142, featuring more topics related to NBA Live, NBA 2K, and the past week of action in the NBA.

On this week’s show…

  • We discuss the most recent NBA Live 16 roster update, including the addition of Elton Brand and the latest ratings adjustments.
  • A rumour regarding the expansion of the NBA Live development team has been brought to our attention. We don't have any inside information, but we have a few thoughts on the possibility all the same.
  • The good news: face scanning has come to NBA 2K16 PC. The bad news: a lot of gamers probably won't be able to take advantage of it, at least not yet.
  • We reflect on the issue of content creators getting burned out, talking about our own experiences and offering some advice.
  • Jimmy Butler became the fourth Chicago Bulls player to score 50+ points. On a less positive note, it looks like Joakim Noah is out for the season.
  • Martin Luther King Jr. Day saw some wild games in the NBA, including a career high 52 points by Kemba Walker.
  • A couple of players from the Class of 1999 are looking to make a comeback in the NBA.
  • Matthew Dellavedova has been voted the dirtiest player in the league. Will we still defend our fellow Aussie?
  • Andre Drummond set a new record for free throws missed in a single game. We take the opportunity to discuss the Hack-a-Whoever strategy.
  • We offer up some suggestions of players who may be traded before or at the deadline.
  • The NBA might appeal to international fans - like us - by scheduling some morning games in the future. Yes, we're all for it.
  • This week's Bold Predictions see...well, more bold predictions. Last week wasn't kind to us.
  • We end Episode #142 of the NLSC Podcast with an interesting trivia note coming out of the Chicago Bulls/Golden State Warriors game.

I think we all need to tip our hats to modders around the nba video game community, I think we all have being guilty at one time or another for expecting stuff to be made right away for our entertainment when the people at home making theses face/court/jersey/roster/silder updates have lives of there own too and are putting in the free free of charge!

Episode #143 (January 30th, 2016)

Hosts: Andrew & Arcane

We're coming at you a little later this week, but Episode #143 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Join Arcane and I as we discuss recent updates for NBA Live 16 and NBA 2K16, give our thoughts on the 2016 All-Star selections, answer a few mailbag questions, and more.

On this week’s show…

  • We tip things off with a look at recent NBA Live 16 updates, including thoughts on the latest rosters, and the lack of content for BIG Moments.
  • EA are dropping out of E3, in favour of hosting their own event, EA Play. The event will be open to the public, and will feature hands-on game demos.
  • Speaking of EA, we also touch on some recent comments Andrew Wilson made about changing the company's image.
  • Patch #5 has been released for NBA 2K16. Its focus suggests that the Pro-Am Road To The Finals tournament isn't too far away.
  • The starters and reserves for the 2016 NBA All-Star Game have been announced. We recap the selections, and give our thoughts.
  • We reflect on the selections for the Rising Stars Challenge, which were also recently announced.
  • David Blatt's unexpected and virtually unprecedented firing got a lot of people talking in the past week, so it's our turn to weigh in on the situation.
  • Last week, we discussed players who might be traded. One of them has been, as Josh Smith has been sent back to the Houston Rockets.
  • We compare the 1996 Chicago Bulls to the 2016 Golden State Warriors. Who would win, what would the match-ups be like, and how close would it be?
  • Who are some of the biggest Draft busts that come immediately to mind? Unfortunately, MJ has picked a couple of them.
  • We've both come up empty in Bold Predictions the last couple of weeks, which means Andrew is still yet to get on the scoreboard. Surely, this is the week it all turns around!
  • We wrap up Episode #143 of the NLSC Podcast with a bizarre incident involving Blake Griffin.

I totally agree that there should be a center on the allstar ballots and that Drummond should definitely of being a starter over Melo or Wade but interesting enough when you make the case for Cousins in the west which he is the best center there but due to fan voting it would of in fact been Zaza starting
