    MLB The Show 18 today received another patch. It's the fourth out of five patches so far this year in a struggle to improve issues with the fielding and hitting that have plagued the game since release. Pitching, which has been worked on through pitch speeds in past updates, has not been affected by this latest one. ♦Fewer hard choppers, dribblers, and popups in online and local two-player games ♦Logic adjustments to increase the urgency of fielding in the infield. Specifically for D...

    Super Mega Baseball 2 is definitely a "must have" (undeniably true on Xbox One where it's currently free) and just two weeks into its release Metalhead Software has delivered the first patch for the game. The original Super Mega Baseball was patched a few times and even got some new stadiums added but none of the individual updates were as substantial as this first one for the sequel. Some of the changes made came out of feedback during the beta period while other areas were identified and p...

    For just the second time this season a roster update has delivered attribute changes to MLB The Show 18. Unless otherwise noted, the ratings mentioned tie only into Diamond Dynasty where the numbers are lower across the board than in the game's base roster. Coming off a 16 strikeout performance that was followed by a no-hitter, to little surprise James Paxton (+2 to 84) has moved up but just misses out on going Diamond. He benefits from boosts in H/9 and K/9 categories. Paxton did not not...

    Three areas of gameplay that have been heavily scrutinized since release are at the center of another patch for MLB The Show 18. Issues have been identified with the PCI jumping up or down during a swing, fielders struggling to make a play on balls that they should be able reach, and fastball speeds that have made the pitch practically unusable in online games. The latest update to MLB The Show 18 hits on all three of those problematic areas. However, pitch speed has only been adjusted fo...

    Today's roster update for MLB The Show 18 is the first to include ratings changes. While it's still relatively early in the season enough data is now present to justify making those changes but the upgrades and downgrades have been kept somewhat minimal considering it has only been a month. The specific ratings mentioned here belong to Diamond Dynasty mode where the numbers are lower across the board than those found in the rest of the game. Of greatest interest are the players in Diamond...
