Hopefully we're back on the air this weekend. The topic should be a good one to tip things off with!

Episode #279: Fixing 2K Pro-Am & The Online Experience

Hosts: Andrew & Arcane

Episode #279 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! Arcane and I are your hosts this week, and we're debuting a revamped format. As I previously noted, we're looking to focus on one main discussion topic per episode, following a brief round-up of any news and community announcements. We're hoping that this will also allow us to conduct more interviews, and produce other special features.

We're tipping off the revamped NLSC Podcast with a quick recap of Patch 1.23 for NBA Live 19 and Patch 1.09 for NBA 2K19, before getting into this week's topic: the problems with 2K Pro-Am, and how we'd fix them. 2K Pro-Am is a mode that we've played a lot these past few years, and frequently talked about on the show. We've had a lot of fun with it, but we've also endured several frustrating sessions, due in large part to changes that have not always been for the better. After identifying the most pressing issues with 2K Pro-Am, we suggest a few possible solutions that we'd like to see implemented in NBA 2K20 and beyond.

Tune in here!

What are your thoughts on 2K Pro-Am, and how would you improve it? Sound off right here in the Forum! Additionally, feel free to hit us up with any feedback on the episode, as well as suggestions for topics that you'd like to hear us discuss in future episodes.

It was cool to hear about him talking about people's reasoning for picking teams in Jam. The Lakers team was very underwhelming with Vlade and Peeler and Van Exel, so I always went with Charlotte or Orlando or Seattle

I remember trying out Arch Rivals on NES at a video game store as a kid so that definitely sparked my interest for Jam

Interesting to see him talk about limitations due to memory but then to see him get brought back for the EA reboot and see what he could really do.

I think it may explain some of the ratings as well, since a few of them have seemed a bit off over the years. These days we've got a lot of resources to devise accurate ratings in sim and arcade games alike, but that wasn't the case in the early 90s.

Yeah they really had to make the most of the hardware back then. It's why Mortal Kombat had so many palette swaps with their ninjas; there wasn't room for any more unique designs until better hardware came along.

That was a really cool interview. I hope he finds out what was up with the rookie/all-star team announcement and lets us know. I'm assuming there was only one sound file for both teams so they couldn't specifically say one team name or the other but it' still a really random thing to have in there.

Glad you enjoyed it!

I'd definitely like to hear more about it if anyone else involved with TE remembers what the deal was with that scream. I'm still glad I asked Tim though, made for a fun moment!

NLSC Podcast #281: Trusting the Process with NBA Live

Hosts: Andrew & Arcane

Episode #281 of the NLSC Podcast is out now! This week, Arcane and I are discussing the matter of trusting the process as far as NBA Live is concerned.

The discussion tips off with reflections on how the once-dominant brand in sim basketball games fell on hard times, from the shaky transition to the sixth generation consoles with NBA Live 06, to the disaster that was NBA Elite 11. We consider missed opportunities as far as rebooting the series by going back and building upon NBA Live 10, and note the difficulties that occurred with the cancellation of NBA Elite 11 and NBA Live 13, before the eventual comeback with NBA Live 14. From there, we discuss how the series has fared during its continued comeback, touching on all of the positives and negatives along the way. After going into detail about what we want to see out of the series moving forward, we wrap up with our hopes and expectations for NBA Live 20.

Tune in here!

Additionally, feel free to hit us up with any feedback on the episode, as well as suggestions for topics that you'd like to hear us discuss in future episodes.
