    The third patch for MLB The Show 16 has just gone out and is the update many have been waiting for as it deals with some of the community feedback received on the game since releasing in late March. While most notably auto-baserunning should supposedly work properly now, there has been no mention made regarding check swings or the lethargic animations into throws seen on occasion from both infielders and outfielders. Unfortunately the patch has seemingly reintroduced some problems rel...

    The fourth in-season roster update has gone out for MLB The Show 16 and for the first time this year it contains some significant ratings movement. Bryce Harper has moved up to a 99 Overall after a fantastic April in which he hit .286 with 9 home runs and 24 RBI. Zack Greinke has gone the opposite direction, dropping down to 91 after going 2-2 in 6 starts with a 5.50 ERA.  (more…)...

    For the second time since the season began a special limited time card pack has been introduced to MLB The Show 16. With the pack are five new cards that enter the Diamond Dynasty pool of players, joining the 10 that made their debut last week. The smart move may be to avoid buying this "Developer's Choice" pack. The odds are not increased to an extent that makes it better than going with three regular packs. It does provide the opportunity to pull one of the new cards, however three ...

    One of the biggest complaints about team-building modes in sports games is that they're built around pressuring consumers into spending money in order to complete. MLB The Show 16's Diamond Dynasty mode however has introduced a new feature that is arguably the most consumer-friendly in the genre and has made it far more inviting for those who don't necessarily want to invest in it the same way that others chose to do so. Inside Edge is delivering ratings changes on a daily basis that make...

    The third in-season roster update went out today for MLB The Show 16. While there were a number of ratings changes, very few of them affected upper-tier players. Only one name previously rated above an 84 moved up. After throwing his second no-hitter, Chicago Cubs' pitcher Jake Arrieta was bumped a point to 96, though it would seem justifiable for him and Bryce Harper to be all the way up at 99 now rather than a few points away still.  (more…)...

    Two new card packs began being offered in the MLB The Show 16 store yesterday. The "Prime Time Performers" and "Swing For The Fences" packs go for 5,000 coins and contain 3 player cards with a higher chance them being Gold or Diamond. The math doesn't really add up to make one of these packs a good value purchase however. Take 5,000 Coins and either buy one of these new packs getting 3 player cards that have 2X chance of being a Gold or Diamond OR you open 5 regular packs and get 30 pl...

    Team-building modes in sports games are intended to be played for months on end, if not year-round, making them initially tough to assess when in the early days following their respective releases.

Bryan Wiedey and T.J. Lauerman discuss everything there is to do with the popular mode in an all-new Press R...

    The first in-season roster update for MLB The Show 16 was primarily utilized to add in rookies who had made their Major League debut. In the second update, which went out today, more rookies have been introduced into the game. After being left out last week, Dae-Ho Lee has made his way into the game, however for some reason placed on the Mariners' AA team rather than the MLB squad. The highest rated new rookie is Brett Nicholas of the Rangers, while Mallex Smith and Nomar Mazara are the o...
