  • NBA Live 08 Finals OTP Begins Saturday
    Posted June 6th, 2008 at 10:40 am 16 Comments
    NLSC has organized online team play nights with NBA Live 08 on the 360 to play through the NBA Finals. The first two games are being held Saturday evening at 8ET/5PT. Meet in the lobby room NLSC Finals where the password will be nlsc. I'm going to attempt to make it for at least one, if not both of the games. Afterwards look for videos and recaps of the games....
  • NBA Live 08 Online Team Play Article
    Posted April 3rd, 2008 at 11:44 am 24 Comments
    One topic that I've covered here a lot has been the NBA Live 08 Online Team Play. From my thoughts on the mode and suggestions for how it could be better (my full first impressions here) to holding the team play nights it has been a really enjoyable and valuable addition. Recently I wrote an article for Gametap detailing the five things you need to know about Live's OTP. The writeup is somewhat general since it's targeted towards those who may not know much about it. Given that it was pus...
  • NBA Live OTP Nights to return for Playoffs
    Posted March 22nd, 2008 at 7:37 am 18 Comments
    There will be a break from the weekly NBA Live 08 Online Team Play nights until right around the start of the NBA Playoffs which begin on Saturday April 19th. When the OTP nights return they'll feature playoff matchups with polls for one Western Conference and one Eastern Conference game. With the NCAA Tournament taking place and increasing difficulty in being able to attend each week it made sense just to hold off until then. I've really enjoyed the playing so I'll be looking forward to ...

    EA Sports has sent over a document detailing all the player rating changes made in the latest roster update for NHL 08.

Now every player ...

  • NBA Live OTP night eight
    Posted March 7th, 2008 at 7:00 am 26 Comments
    Another NBA Live 08 OTP night is set for Saturday beginning at 5PT/8ET. You can meet up in the pastapadre custom lobby room or if I see you on my friends list playing Live and not in the middle of another game I'll generally send out an invite as well. The first game starts up minutes after the meet-up time with the invites for the second game going out after the completion of the first (once I've written down the stats). With the roster update out we'll get in a couple games with teams t...

    This week the NBA Live OTP games will take place on the evening of Friday the 29th. Meet up in the created pastapadre lobby room at 5pt/8et if you'd like to join in. As usual recaps and highlight videos should be up by Monday. The roster update may be out by this time but we'll play it safe and save those for next week. It's possible the special OTP with NBA Live producers may take place next week as well however that hasn't been determined yet. After how well last week's games turned ...
  • NBA Live OTP night six recap
    Posted February 25th, 2008 at 2:22 am 6 Comments
    Night six of NBA Live 08 OTP is in the books and it was one of the better all around nights so far. Both games were very competitive and using the lower ranked matchup and international teams seemed to pay off. The first game we had three vs four and the second game was a full five on five. Following the next roster update we'll do some games with the teams that made acquisitions (Cleveland vs Dallas sounds good) and probably another international game since this one turned out so well. A...
