  • NBA Live OTP night six
    Posted February 22nd, 2008 at 5:30 am 32 Comments
    The sixth night of NBA Live 08 OTP will be on Saturday the 23rd at 5PT/8ET. Per request this week will feature one matchup of lower rated teams and another of international teams. Once again there will be a full game or highlight video, stats, and short recaps by Monday. Also I wanted to mention that there is a special OTP night in the works. This could be next week or the week after (the new roster update should be out beforehand) and would bring in some NBA Live producers to play along....

    It was an interesting night of OTP with the new roster update plus some different developments. That led into a really entertaining dunk contest at All-Star Saturday Night which I was glad that I didn't pass up watching. The first real problem participant was involved and it took two attempts at games to figure out who it was. He was calling timeout after timeout prompting technical fouls and was intentionally fouling on defense. That is why I've suggested there needs to be a way to boot ...

    With the new roster update out this week's NBA Live 08 OTP being set up for tomorrow should be entertaining. Since it is All-Star Saturday night we'll begin playing earlier than usual @ 3pt/6et. I'm going to attempt to record the games and get them posted up along with recaps by Monday. The first matchup will be Suns @ Lakers. Vote below for the second game from a short list of choices I put together. Update: The suggestion was made to play the ASG. So the second game will be East @ We...
  • NBA Live OTP night four recap

    There was only one game on night four of NBA Live 08 OTP which had the Chicago Bulls @ LA Clippers. It turned out to be one of the cleanest played games thus far even though one side was in control the entire way throughout. Where some of the earlier games had a frantic pace and predominantly centered on quick scores and easy baskets, this one had a more controlled pace and came down to half court offense and rebounding. The rebounding discrepancy tells the story of the game. Chris Kama...

    Another session of NBA Live 08 online team play will go on tonight (Friday) with a meet-up in the created pastapadre lobby room at 5pm PT / 8pm ET. The game will be recorded and I'll be taking down the stats for a recap. Due to different circumstances I'm limited to just taking part in one game tonight and won't be available tomorrow but I still wanted to attempt to get one in. The next roster update (currently scheduled for around All-Star Weekend) will bring some matchups that have adde...
  • Next NBA Live OTP night

    This week the NBA Live OTP will take place on Saturday (2/2) beginning at 5PT/8ET. Two more games will be played and likely recorded with recaps and videos going up by Monday. Same procedures to be followed as the first two nights (meet in the pastapadre created lobby room with password otp). Vote in the poll for the two matchups to be played. I've tried again to put together teams that are relatively even and aren't dominated by a single superstar. Update: Based on the voting it'll be...
  • NBA Live OTP night two recap
    Posted January 28th, 2008 at 12:11 am 22 Comments
    Both of the second night games were evenly matched and well played. I've definitely noticed improvement as everyone playing has gotten more comfortable with the mode, their assignments, and communication. One aspect I haven't really written much about is how great it is to have communication with only your teammates. Next year hopefully they'll have more ways to take advantage of that (setting picks, posting up, ect). Despite that it is tough getting back on defense to prevent easy hoops bec...
  • NBA Live OTP night one recap

    Another two games of NBA Live 08 OTP will be played tonight and after the success of the first night I'm really looking forward to it. The games were a lot of fun and it was nice to have some teamwork and ball distribution to go along with no lag to speak of. The six minute quarters seemed to be the right length as well. Just a great experience all around. Both games had 3 users on each team with the other two players controlled by the CPU. Thanks to everyone who participated. Tonight the...
