Another panel discussion on MLB 15: The Show impressions is scheduled for tonight at 11ET/8PT. As usual, those who can’t make it for the live recording of the Press Row Hangout will be able to watch the archived video at any point after the show comes to an end.
The Day One Press Row Hangout went for over an hour and it still only scratched the surface of what the game has to offer. Opinions on the game are still being formed and assessments of new features continue. We’ll be breaking down some of them in more detail in this second hangout. Written impressions of the game will be going up on the site tomorrow and Friday and a Hits & Misses review on Monday.
Here’s a collection of captured gameplay videos and walkthroughs I’ve put together so far with MLB 15: The Show. On the gameplay videos make sure to change the quality setting to 1080p60fps. Included is a dramatic Road to the Show appearance, a full game played in Postseason Mode, the opening of theÂ 15 bonus packs from the Anniversary Edition, how to get that bonus content if you bought the game digitally, and an example of trouble being experienced online. Make sure to also check out the opening night live stream and last night’s Press Row Hangout – with another one planned for tonight!Â Read more
A third post-release patch for NBA 2K15 went out three weeks ago on PlayStation 4 and PC. Today it finally made it to Xbox One after what may have been a failed certification which caused the delay, though 2K Sports would not comment on its status over the three week period.
All that had been previously identified from the patch was a fix so shoes could be applied to MyPlayer characters and a change to shooting percentages. The precise details of the update were being held back until it had reached all platforms. Response to the patch has been mixed with some feeling it has ruined shooting in the game by making it far too easy, while others have expressed appreciation atÂ the reward that comes with taking open shots.

Tonight’s live Press Row Hangout will feature extensive discussion on the first day with MLB 15: The Show. Just about every aspect of the game will be examined, to the extent that the panel hasÂ been able to spend time with the particular modes over the 24 hour period. Expect impressionsÂ related to gameplay, presentation, save migration, Road to the Show, Franchise, Online Franchise, Diamond Dynasty, Universal Rewards and more!
The show will air live at 11ET/8PT. For those who can’t watch live it will be archived immediately after to watch at their convenience. This is the first of multiple Hangouts expected this week which will make up the Press Row Podcast on Friday.
Extensive loading times have always plagued the MLB: The Show franchise. Expectation last year on PS4 was for that to become a non-issue with the move to more powerful hardware. Unfortunately not only did loading times not improve but they worsened significantly.
Shortened loading times were promised though with MLB 15: The Show and the game has undoutedly delivered on that. Thankfully it’s now comparable to all the other sports franchises and when combined with the new Suspend/Resume feature The Show as a whole is much more pleasant to fire up and play than ever before.Â Read more
