Re: Play-by-play/Commentary

When I hear Matt begin to say, "With this one in the books...", I know it's time to hit options and click on replay then go back to the game to shut him up as they will go on and on about it. At this point, the commentary is not going to change much at all other than a few new lines each year.

Compare MLBTS with the 2K games with Jon Miller and Joe Morgan. Itís not that Jon and Joe had better lines or more to say, they just sounded a hundred times better.

And forgive me if Iím being repetitive as Iíve made this point several times in the past, but a neat little trick to ďdeal withĒ commentary is to turn it the heck down. Like Iím talking four or five clicks from the left. Itís BLASTING on default. Try to get it so they just kind of bleed into the rest of the ambiance instead of being so right in your face. Works for me, I donít even turn it off anymore.


Man itís really too bad 2k isnít making a MLB game, it would be incredible to see what they could do these days

Re: Play-by-play/Commentary

People actually listen to the commentary? I haven't listened to it since...oh heck I can't remember the last time I listened to it. I open the laptop and turn on Netflix and play some Shameless or Dexter or something and listen to that while playing.

Although I have some new surround sound headphones and I really want to hear how the game sounds are with them. So I am going to hear it at least once....eventually.

Imagine The Show graphics and gameplay with the presentation of 2K. That would be a thing of beauty.... and donít get be started with the real time between pitches play out... I loved it when I could watch the batter step out and the pitcher get the ball back and set up again, I miss it

Re: Play-by-play/Commentary

I turn off commentary and in game music. I play my music from the media player from my thumb drive on the ps4.

The commentary is stale and boring. I mean if I hear DeRo say "there was billboards around Wrigley Field when Kris Bryant was in Triple A" etc. etc. same old lines since '16... lol

Every once in while I'll turn the commentary back on.

Re: Play-by-play/Commentary

I commentate my own games. Sometimes in my head, usually out loud.

Haven't pulled the trigger yet, but I am debating scoring games on a laptop using ballscore so I can have easier access to player names and in-depth stats during games.

What's sad is that Matty V doesn't seem to have much time for batting average and ERA in real life (preferring, at the very least, OPS/OPS+, FIP, etc.) and yet he goes on and on about a batter hitting .300.
