  • Cover of MLB The Show 18 goes to Yankees phenom Aaron Judge
    Posted November 6th, 2017 at 1:45 pm 9 Comments
    When MLB The Show 18 releases in March the cover of the game will feature a player setting a few firsts for the series. Aaron Judge becomes the first New York Yankees player to appear on the cover. It's also the first time that the cover athlete is coming off a rookie season. Judge is an easy choice for MLB The Show 18 given his meteoric rise as a rookie in the nation's biggest market. He began MLB 17 rated as just a 68 and finished as 88 with power ratings in the 90s. Besides last year's...

The Players of the Month cards are out in Diamond Dynasty mode and headlined by James Paxton who went 6-0 with a 1.37 ERA in July. In order to get his 96 Overall rated card all six of...

    After taking off last week and only relatively minor adjustments made in the last few roster updates the anticipated sweeping changes to be made during the All-Star Break for the entire league didn't materialize with this week's update in MLB The Show 17.

    With the All-Star Break nearing the last few weeks of roster updates for MLB The Show 17 haven't demonstrated the same impact of those that came before them. That could be an indication that a sweeping update of the whole league taking more into consideration this season's performance of players will be coming at that time. It's something the development team has done in past editions of The Show. This week's roster update only adjusts one player that came into it rated over 83. It does n...

Throughout all that though most would have agreed that gameplay remained excellent which is why they kept playing despite all the problems surrounding the game. It seems the collective feeling towards MLB The Show 17 has shifted recently however due to adju...
