I ALMOST fell for this. Almost. Once I read "style guide" I started laughing.

The sound clip I noticed while watching Gamespot's interview with Ramone is that it is the one where Dansby Swanson got his first Major League HR on an inside the part HR in DC. That's pretty dope.

Edit: Something else mentioned, you can now choose your HR celebration as in something they do special, i.e. Edwin Encarnacion's parrot thing when he's rounding first base.

Man, I said I was going to skip 17. But they fixed the one thing that was bugging me. The eyes and face detail. I have to get this now! I'm excited. I haven't been gaming for a few months from work and also having people work for me on a few horror books and girls lol, but this game will get me back to gaming form.
