Re: The MLB 2K9 Developers Are Listening

LOL had anyone noticed the roster glitch, where the game freezes if you edit to many players names? Like if you edit the name outside of the letters the game has them? VIA evan longoria-if you were to change him to A.J. wiliams for example. To many changes like that and the game freezes. Also I have what appears to be a carlos pena glitch! If I try to edit his batting stance to rios or his batting ratings, the screen will go blank and flash on and off and also turn my TV of and on again. Really wierd. VC please dont let this happen. Make the game feel like NBA2k9. Thats pretty sweet presentation.

See I completly agree with you on this. Hitting and fielding and pitching feels last gen to me and its kinda animated like it too. Gets boring. I understand if it aint broke dont fix it, but man you have to upgrade or you will get lost in time.

Re: The MLB 2K9 Developers Are Listening

The biggest issue I have with 2K is that they have become stagnant. Once a leader in sports game innovation they have taken the "recycle" route.

The visuals for all of their games haven't changed much, even in NBA 2K9 although there is a bit of improvement.

2K has not had a super stellar effort with baseball games and 2K8 was a travesty. For 360 owners it really sucks because that is the lone option. I am not sure if 2K is in trouble financially and aren't putting the resources into the baseball franchise but the game needs a major overhaul. They need to scrap the graphics engine all together and start from scratch.

In regards to commentators, NFL 2K used actors who, to this day, are the best of any sports game to date. They were fresh, colorful and provided a realistic broadcast. I would like to see 2K use those guys from the NFL series. They were awesome.

Let's hope 2K rights the ship.

Heres my suggestions on what needs to be in MLB 2K9 and beyond. I sure hope your listening you hard-headed developers as this could also earn a bonus check on pay day for a rewarding video game. :]

> Graphics (Update Stadium graphics, wind effect needs to be toned down a bit looks like a fan is blowing inside their shirts, fans themselves. Take a picture of each player main MLB player that is specialized to be used for graphics purposes.)

> Gameplay (Add Joe Buck, Tim McCarver and/or Harold Reynolds as color commentators with Ken Rosenthal reporting news and rumors, Jennie Zelasko at the beginning of games. getting rid of Morgan and Miller who are real boring playing everygame with their voices. Have post game show (optional for gamers). Scoreboard flashing other games results, Simple controls. In-game Breaks on other games around the league)

> Game Menu : That Blue menu is hideous and boring been in the series both years, its needs face lift ala Madden's. Players portraits or pictures need to be replaced and updated.

> Franchise Mode: This one needs a facelift for sure;
1. Add Expansion Mode ASB,
2. Option to control ALL 30 MLB TEAMS!!!.
3. Add Rule V draft, Arbitration, Draft in midseason with prospects
4. Improve Minor League system
5. Better All Star game*
6. Have the Money contracts that player has in real life
7. Dynasty type with 25 years of Franchise
8. Ability to Hire and Fire managers midseason, and in addtion include pool of "free agent managers, pitching coach, hitting coach." Be Realistic with names like Willie Randolph, Ken Macha, Jack McKeon those type of people we've heard off. Have it be like Madden and their Offseason Mode with Coaches.
9. A Newspaper flash when clicking League News with a picture of say a walk-off win or a pitcher throwing no-hitter, have it say great headlines like "Streaking Rays Win" or "Yankees reel in Fish in Win" also display headlines on minor leaguers suspended on use of steroids, or reporting on major injuries like Smoltz needs tommy john surgery; out for season., Player on last year of contract demanding trade when team is out of first or in cellar of division.)
10. Offseason Mode which includes Winter Meetings where you discuss trade proposals, scouting foreign players like the next Dice-K or Miggy Cabrera.

*in HR Derby, if you have a player on your team who has a lot of homers by july, have the Commissioners office send you "an email" to accept the players entrance into the derby or to decline. Risk being the player's power numbers decline post-all star break. In All-star game, have AI use all players as possible they dont deploy barely any bench players.

Additions: Add scenario mode of real games the previous MLB season where we change the course of the result or maintain it, Superstar type mode where you battle your way up the minors on your way to the Bigs. World Baseball Classic is in 09 and what better way than to have it in Franchise mode every four years in addition to having it seperate for other use.

Glitchs, Odd Things Okay, the freezing of the game needs to stop. Odd things include stats in which game is too one-sided the loud sound effects.

Getting this guys? Youll need to do all this for us to be impressed with a product you call a video game. More like a piece of trash with your previous installments.
You are correct. We must have more control in the Franchise Mode over each team.

Also an option to override budget requirements.

Bring Free agents to each team once Franchise starts.

Be able to place players on the disable list.

Re: The MLB 2K9 Developers Are Listening

I think that pretty much everythings been covered, except one thing. Throw in a Superstar type mode like in Madden where you can take a player that you create and try to take him all the way to the Hall of Fame. I think that would be entertaining to do with a baseball game.

It wasn't bad. It would be cool if they had a co-op play, split screen version. One player on the bases, on player up to bat. That would be pretty awesome.

Re: The MLB 2K9 Developers Are Listening

For 2k to get my attention...they have to do alot....
especially since I got a ps3 and the show...

Not Fix...but Overhaul:
The Graphics....absolutely unexceptable for a systems with the
is much power...

The Field Size....It feels like the field is like a softball sized field

The Fielding Animations....they look so unnatural

The Home runs....still way too many of them

The Presentation.....where's the wow factor?

I know i'm forgetting something, but i gave up on this game so long ago...I forgot everything that was wrong
