Found the feed setting for number of episodes to display, and updated it accordingly. It might take a little bit for the feeds to update with the back catalog, but hopefully that won't take too long.

NLSC Podcast #312: The Silence is Deafening

Hosts: Andrew & Dee4Three

As March Modness 2020 tips off, we talk about some of the great work our modding community is doing right now, and some of our own plans for the event. Speaking of celebrations, NBA 2K20 gave away a MyTEAM pack to celebrate some record breaking numbers for installations and games played. We note that despite some missteps and bad PR here and there, 2K is fantastic when it comes to celebrating itself and promoting the brand. This leads us to draw comparisons to what EA Sports is doing with NBA Live, and how they could be doing so much more as far as community engagement. It hasn't escaped our notice that there have been a lot of missed opportunities, not just with NBA Live but also NBA Jam. We also reflect on the games that had the biggest influence and impact on us growing up, and how it's shaped our preferences, opinions, and expectations. Finally, we touch on the importance of standing together as a community.

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.

NLSC Podcast #313: NBA 2K20, Sixth Months Later

Hosts: Andrew & Dee4Three

Following on from last week's episode, we have a new rumour about NBA Live to discuss. We weigh in on the potential impact of NBA Live skipping another year, and possibly missing the launch of a new console generation. The prospect of using NBA Live 19 for extended testing ahead of a new release also comes up; could it benefit the series moving forward? Elsewhere, a promotion in NBA 2K19 is clearly trying to boost NBA 2K20's already record-setting sales and engagement numbers. This leads into our impressions of NBA 2K20, six months after its release and following several patches. We talk about our enjoyment of the game, the impact of legacy issues, and where it ranks for us on the current generation. A couple of topics for future shows are also teased.

Tune in here!

What are your thoughts on NBA 2K20 six months after its release? Do you think EA is making a mistake, and should they utilise NBA Live 19 for testing?

NLSC Podcast #314: Our Unfinished Business & Nostalgic Phases

Hosts: Andrew & Dee4Three

In the wake of the NBA shutdown, the official NBA 2K Twitter has been doing a great job of engaging with fans. Unfortunately, the same can't be said of 2K's handling of MyTEAM bans due to Auction House sniping. We discuss the lack of communication and clear guidelines, as well as the staggering amount of money some gamers pump into the mode. Turning our attention to older games, we reflect on unfinished business in titles from yesteryear. In particular, we discuss the difficulty of going back and spending a lot of time with old favourites, the idea of basketball games (and sports games in general) having a different concept of completion, and games we wish that we'd played more. This leads into a discussion of nostalgic phases: the times where we've briefly become obsessed with revisiting certain hoops games that we love.

Tune in here!

NLSC Podcast #315: Old Games & Old Habits

Hosts: Andrew & Dee4Three

With the NBA shut down for the foreseeable future, it's a great time to not only catch up on gaming, but also classic NBA games. We discuss some of the ways the NBA could improve League Pass and the official YouTube channel, including some comparisons to the WWE Network. Speaking of history, the 25th Anniversary of Michael Jordan's first comeback is making us feel old, but it's a good excuse to play the Double Nickel game in NBA 2K11's Jordan Challenge. On that note, our main discussion topic this week is our basketball gaming preferences past and present, with reflections on the titles from the 90s and early 2000s that influenced our tastes and habits. From our preferred quarter and season length to how often we sim and how much realism we like, those old games established how we approach the virtual hardwood. We also touch on some of the quirks of those old games.

NLSC Podcast #316: Interview with Darren Schueller

Host: Andrew
Special Guest: Darren Schueller

Our 25th Anniversary of NBA Live celebrations continue with another developer interview! Former NBA Live programmer Darren Schueller joins the show to chat about his time working on the game from NBA Live 97-2001. As the man behind implementing DBF files in the PC version of NBA Live, Darren explains how that development came about, and the details may surprise you! We also talk about his work on the user interface throughout the years, as well as the hidden developer teams and other Easter eggs. Darren also shares anecdotes about how he got into the industry, pranks and other amusing moments during his tenure at EA Canada (including his Need for Speed cameos), and some of his favourite games.

Tune in here!

NLSC Podcast #317: The Perks of PC & The Merriness of Modding

Hosts: Andrew & Dee4Three

March Modness may be over, but we're still in the mood to mod! In addition to discussing projects that we're currently working on, we talk about how important the modding scene has been to the PC version. Specifically, we note that it's drawn gamers from consoles to PC, and made them aware of the perks of PC basketball gaming. We also reflect on satisfying modding discoveries, and how mods stand out in other original content. As the preliminary specs for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox Series X have been revealed, we also take the opportunity to look ahead to the next generation. The specs sound impressive - and very much like a gaming PC - but will it matter if design philosophies don't change?

Tune in here!

What are some of your favourite mods? Do you game on both PC and console, or do you prefer one over the other? Sound off with your thoughts 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.
