As a fairly casual gamer, I ask is it fun? That's really about it.
-A game is not fun, if I absolutely can't do something that can be done in real life.
-I keep notice players reacting, moving, and playing like they know what's coming,
or are simply way too good at any one thing
-The balance is way too off.
-Or there're a whole bunch of meters, power ups, completely diff. mechanics for
something in my view should ... Read More

Let me say this, my non-sports title gaming is horribly limited. I tried Halo, wasn't my thing. I'm more of a fantasy RPG type guy when it comes to my non-sports gaming. I beat Grandia II on Dreamcast, and loved Lost Odyssey on 360.

That being said there are 2 titles in my new ps3 that are getting close to equal time. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, and MLB: The Show 10. For the sake of this blog, I'm going to talk about graphics & movement.

One thing I've seen ... Read More

So yesterday I bought a ps3 "sony refurbished" 80gig $249...just to play NCAA 11 and the show. Having already liked MLB 2K10, I was strongly leaning toward a 360, because it's cheaper. I bought the refurbished instead of new at Gamestop just cause. I bought an extra controller, NCAA 11 new , the Show used, and Reflex MX vs. ATV I notice that one of my USB's on the ps3 isn't working. I'm not worried about it, one works and I have plenty of ways to charge the controllers. ... Read More

Well, this game is a looooot of fun. But it definitely needs some improvement, and slider tweaks. It said there was a game update, and I downloaded it. I don't know if had both patches or just one. There were no more chances to download.

My impressions: ballparks play waaaaaay to small like MLB on the ps1...everything was a single or HR. I hit one double off the wall. The "very early swing" text that I can't find a way to turn off, totally ruins immersion for me. I can tell ... Read More

I've been thinking about this, and want to know if you guys follow me. I am not a CD guy , and basically nobody knows who I am, and I can barely use facebook. But I have a theory, about what as MMChris says, makes the Show a victim of it's own success. I think that because they have such a deep, huge game, it's incredibly difficult for them to make changes.

I'll contrast with Madden, instead of MLB 2K because it's a more fair comparison. You'll see why in a minute. When the ... Read More

I consider myself an average gamer, a true blend of sim/arcade style. I just bought a ps3 2 weeks ago (well documented by now LOL).

What do I mean by average gamer? I mean , when I took the Show 09 I used Knight's rosters, and made all my Mariners offseason moves, got Billy Wagner to the Braves, Jason Bay to the Mets, and got lazy. But it's still fun for me.

With Madden, I've spent a lot more time than the Show, probably because it's football season. I bought ... Read More

I've been lookin' forward to a ps3 or Xbox 360 for 2 years tonight I finally get one. A ps3. FINALLY had enough money. I'm thrilled and excited all the way home.

It took me about an hour/ 1.5 hrs to get it online...whatever , I'm not a techie. (Thank God for google.)

3 software updates. 4 restarts.

I download the patches for Madden 10...I think. No clue where a roster update is, but my internet browser on ps3 was working so I ... Read More

Since baseball season has started, I've seen (participated in most, and started a couple) several threads dedicated to complaints about the media, and the quality of ESPN, FOX, and local broadcasters. As a former radio sportscaster (the highest level I reached was a small D2 college in the south), I thought I'd take a look at all the different factors and what's changed with media coverage of sports in this day and age.

First off, let's look at local sports coverage. Most local ... Read More
