TG writes: MLB 14: The Show's announcement came as no big surprise, but the newest feature added for the title's Spring release was a long asked for, much needed, and something no other sports game has done.
The PS4 version looks great
the models are mindblowing!
Hopefully they can make contact on high fives and fist bumps on the PS4. It looks awesome.
San Diego Studios, not Santa Monica.
I always get those two awesome studios mixed up when I type. Thanks for the heads up.
This game seems to be one of the few games that, every generation, is a benchmark for in game visuals and animation. You can always count on The Show to push the system as much as it can, to make the game look and feel more and more real. As an Xbox gamer for the past two generations, I always felt jealous when this game released. Because the Xbox system had nothing to compare to it. Now, that I am becoming a PS4 owner... I soon, will finally get to experience what everybody else has, for so long... And I can't wait!
While the MLB 2K series is a decent game in its own right, it has never reached the level of MLB The Show. I usually play both versions for review every year and the differences are generally night and day.
The only problem I ever had with MLB games is players running through each other.
Phantom high fives and fist bumps are very awkward to watch. They added some player collisions on the base paths with MLB 13, but it still wasn't quite life like. I've been caught in quite a few run downs over the course of this last year where a player would cause my guy to stumble and then get tagged out.
this is going to be one of the greatest experiences to ever hit gaming.
Those beards are so epic! Imagine Shadow of the Colossus with hair.
This is the game that will get me back into playing baseball again, the game looks awesome graphically in every way possible. Off topic a bit, i hope EA doesn't renew the nfl license because i would love to see san diego studios bring back the nfl gameday football series.
The player animations need an overhaul in the Madden series. Hopefully some competition from other studios will force EA to step up their game at least.
I agree with you, even some of the movements of the players look robotic not smooth and fluid like it should be. Just hoping and praying the license isn't renewed so there can be competition again. It's sad that we're forced to play a game even when you don't to but at the same time your wanting your football fix.
YES - RTTS CARRYOVER! That IS a big deal... starting over was definitely a huge barrier for me that had me stop going back to the franchise after 2010 or so...
To me that is the biggest deal of all for MLB 14. I only wish it could import previous game saves as well. Time to retire some guys to the Hall of Fame I guess.
if you play a sports game always go with a launch, that way you can wait a couple years to get the next ones. mlb the show 14/ MLB the show 26. madden 2014/ madden 2016. and so on..
Greatest sports series I have ever played. The game that got me hooked on MLB in the real world.
