Re: Major League Baseball 2K9 Official Patch 2 Available, Impressions Here (360 Only)

I really enjoy this game.

The only concession Ive had to made to the AI, is that I simply cannot use the 12-6 Curveball as anything other then a waste/setup pitch thrown well outside the strike zone at all times.

The AI batters simply cannot handle this pitch, thrown for strikes.

Ive given up rocket shots on regular curveball's, but the 12-6 curve is this year's Ephus Pitch.

Remember that atrocity?

picked up the game to days ago, gave it a chance, I'm sorry this game is pretty bad, I just can't get past so many things. Put it on ebay already for a cheap price. Even with the patch downland this game just can't be played for me. My psS3 threw up after playing 2K9, the game needs a lot of help IMO.

Probably a silly question, but it's been a couple of years since I played MLB2K series.

Thanks.
Yes you can - under camera options where it says BATTING, push R1 and it will change to PITCHING

As I've learned in my last 2 games Lincecum's 12-6 curveball goes 7 feet over from where I aim since the patch,using pinpoint aim. Wich means if I want it on the outside corner I have to aim low and inside. He was pitching 2 games because I went to an exhibition game to try it out to see if the same thing was happening and I figured I'd try to get the HR achivement by bumping up his stats.

On a related note the number hit batters is out of control post patch.

You aren't doing the gestures accurately then. Turn the Gesture Recognition slider down and your pitches will be just as accurate as they were pre-patch.

It still seems a lot tougher than in last year's game to get pitches to go where you want them to. Been playing with the pitching meter speeds to compensate.

Fielding is still very sluggish, and when you try to change the direction of an outfielder (seems like the computer controls you at first), a lot of fly balls can drop in.

The problem doesn't appear to be the speed of the fielders, but the responsiveness to changing the direction.

CPU hitting aggressiveness seems to have been toned down nicely.
