NLSC Podcast #446: Return of the NBA Live 2001 Legends
The NBA Live 2001 Legends are back! Nate and Roger return to the show to talk about their favourite hoops title, and other beloved virtual hardwood classics. We also chat about creating content based on retro basketball gaming, memorable video game teams, and interacting with former NBA players.
NLSC Podcast #445: Is NBA 2K23 The Greediest 2K Ever?
The honeymoon period for NBA 2K23 is drawing to a close, leaving many to wonder: is this the greediest 2K ever? Despite pushback from shills and toxic online players, valid criticism is breaking through. We also discuss a happy accident with MyNBA Eras rosters being patched before more serious issues, recall a cool feature in NBA Starting Five 2005, and hear from the community in this week's mailbag.
NLSC Podcast #444: Further NBA 2K23 Impressions & Gatekeeping Nonsense
How are we feeling about NBA 2K23 after spending a full week with it? We've got further impressions to share, both positive and negative, and open up the mailbag to find out what our listeners think of the game! We also discuss the impact of difficulty settings, the creative use of Legends in NBA ShootOut 2004, and a nasty, condescending Tweet about gaming as an adult.
NLSC Podcast #443: NBA 2K23 First Impressions
NBA 2K23 is out now worldwide! We've been playing the Next Gen and Current Gen versions alike, and we've got plenty of impressions to share. From gameplay, graphics, and the Jordan Challenge, to MyNBA Eras, MyTEAM, and roster accuracy, it's a deep dive into all the pros and cons of NBA 2K23!
NLSC Podcast #442: The Final Countdown to NBA 2K23
It's the final countdown to NBA 2K23! With snippets of news coming through on a daily basis leading up to the release, we share our thoughts on the latest developments. We also reflect on a steal of a retro collecting pickup, as well as a Tweet that sums up Next Gen snobbery. In this week's mailbag, the community shares their Virtual Hardwood Legends.
NLSC Podcast #441: NBA 2K23 MyTEAM, The W, & Other Wins
The latest developer blogs brought us some great news about MyTEAM and The W in NBA 2K23 as release day approaches. We also revisited NBA Live 2001 this past week, while reactions to a Tweet about a fun Easter egg prompt us to defend retro basketball gaming once again. We've also got MyLEAGUE/MyCAREER updates to share, and a mailbag question to answer.
Retro basketball gaming talk at it’s finest!
Found this podcast off of a recommendation from a YouTuber. So happy I found these guys, great conversations on vintage basketball games. They cover ground from 90’s basketball games to current day 2k’s. I have found myself getting into retro gaming more recently and have started to pick up some of the games mentioned in episodes. As a new dad and a husband I do not have much spare time. It has been great to have this podcast to listen to on my way home from work and while I rock my son back to sleep in the nursery.
For real basketball gamers.
Great podcast for this "old head" basketball gamer who mostly plays franchise/play now (started with Double Dribble 👴🏾). If you’re a real basketball junkie (college/hs, Overtime Elite, etc. referee, coach, former player, bball dad) like me then this is a must listen. I don’t play video games. I play basketball. Great job guys!!! Keep at it.
For real basketball gamers!
Hands down the best podcast for basketball gamers. Both hosts are passionate and entertaining. Definitely worth checking out if you love basketball video games!
